Tournament Flow (super short version, keep this open and follow it!!):
- Pairings go up
- First player makes the table and types
    !table # ###### (table-number / room-number) in #reports
- Everyone else looks for their table, joins and checks rules and players
- If all good, Ready up!
- First Player types !begin in #reports
- Plaaaaay
- when done everyone reports their scores with
    !report # ##### (placement / rawpoints) in #reports
Room Settings: Mode: 4-Player, Length: Two-Wind Match, Thinking Time: 5+20s, Advanced: Enable, Starting Points: 50000 (fifty thousand), Min Points to Win: 50000 (fifty thousand), Local Yaku: Disable, Red Five: No Red Five, Open Tanyao: Yes, Min Han: 1 Han, Tips: Yes, Computer: Easy, Open Hands: Disable

Tournament Flow (normal version):
- Pay attention to Discord.
- Round Seatings will be posted.
- If you are the player listed first for your table, make the room.
- - Main Page > Friendly Match > Create Room > Mode: 4-Player, Length: Two-Wind Match, Thinking Time: 5+20s, Advanced: Enable, Starting Points: 50000 (fifty thousand), Min Points to Win: 50000 (fifty thousand), Local Yaku: Disable, Red Five: No Red Five, Open Tanyao: Yes, Min Han: 1 Han, Tips: Yes, Computer: Easy, Open Hands: Disable > Create.
- - Then, in discord, type !table # ##### in #reports where # is the table number, and ##### is the five-digit room number at the top of the room screen. This will post the room number in tournament-announcements. Double check you have the room correct.
- If you are not the player listed first for your table, wait to see the name of the room appear. Once you have it, Main Page > Friendly Match > Join Room > enter #####.
- All four players should confirm that all four players are the correct players on the list, that the rules are correct, and should only click "Ready" if the players and rules are correct (4-Player South, 5+20second, From: 50000 Minimum Points to Win: 50000, No Red Five). If you start a match with the incorrect players, you risk elimination from the event. Check to make sure everything is correct before clicking Ready.
- If you have an issue with your table or the players at it, please inform the organizer via DM.
- Be aware that before your game starts, players at your table may receive Discord messages from the organizer. Pay attention to Discord when not in match.
- If you are the player listed first for your table and everyone is Ready, in discord, type !begin in #reports. Then, start your match!
- o_o Play mahjong here (finally) o_o
- When you are finished, in discord, type !report # ###### in #reports. This is your placement, and your raw score. We will calculate uma and score for you, just give the raw points.
- - Examples: First place with 75300 types !report 1 75300. Third place with 41800 types !report 3 41800.
- - All players must report their placement score. Failure to do so could result in your elimination from the event, so be sure to do it promptly!
- - If there is any discrepancy, you may be asked ot provide a game log.
- Once all games are finished, standings will be posted in tournament-announcements, the list of players (including the elimination line) is posted, and then the next round begins!

FAQ
- Uma is +15/+5.
- Yes, you start at 50K not 30K or 25K. Yes, there is busting. We don't want games busting after one or two hands, but we also don't want to give players the option to significantly feed others.
- If you have an issue for some reason with a player's avatar or name, DM the organizer, who may force a player to change their avatar or name. Your request will be kept anonymous. Please use this only in good faith.
- Players are responsible for the integrity of their computer and their internet connection. Actions taken by the program while disconnected are still your responsibility, and other players have no obligation to change their play due to your disconnection.
- Cumulative scores are halved at the beginning of Day 2 and the final hanchan. - Tiebreakers are, in-order: heads-up comparison (games that all tied players played in together), highest lowest score, least fourths, most firsts, coin flip.
- Random pairings are done as follows: per round seeds are pregenerated. for each round, 1000 random seating diagrams are created, and the lowest-scoring diagram is used. Scoring for pairings: X, +Y for every pair of players that have played each other. X is the number of the pairing created/10000, Y is the number of previous games played with each other squared. Example: the first rolled pairing with all unique matchups is always taken. four pairs of players playing each other for the second time is "as bad" one pair of players playing each other for the third time.
Byes:
If a player or players do not show for a match, those player or players are disqualified. those unfinished players may be re-paired randomly, including sit-in staff. If staff is not available, the highest ranked unseated players may receive byes. Players that receive byes cannot be eliminated on the same round they receive a bye, equal to the average of their current games rounded up to the nearest .1. Byes only occur past the beginning if players quit unnecessarily. Please work together to create a fun tournament for everyone!
Disqualification:
Cheating at the tournament (harassment, combi-play, stream watching, outside/tool-assisted help), disconnecting or refusing to play, failure to show for a match, failure to follow instructions, and/or failure to act maturely in chat leads to disqualification. Disqualified players are marked as DNF in the rankings, and will be reviewed in regards to future inclusion in RiichiOut events.
