    Hello everyone,

    Sadly today we have had to disqualify Team Turkish.

    This was due to the Bug Abuse of YusufSelim today in the Quarter Final match (caught on livestream) and the subsequent ban evasion by using the account HowtoQuickdrop.

    Both are considered to be against the spirit of the tournament and against Shotbow Rules. As per the rules of the Tournament:




    Whilst this course of action is regrettable we feel it was the only way to ensure the integrity of the Tournament going forward.

    The tournament was fun. I believe that Team Turkish members did very good job, even with lag, unlucky things while they are buggy etc. To be honest, with this tournament Team Turkish showed that it is one of the best Shotbow clans and i am proud for it.
    Good luck to other teams. Huge thanks for Shotbow staffs organizing the tournament, and the community who supported us and my clan members.

    Ha, get rid of my comment saying that Murg is publicly shaming him, shows rules only apply to the "peasants" of the server

    I'm fairly certain Yusuf publicly shamed himself by bug abusing on a public livestream long before murgatron said anything about it

    It is still public shaming, and against the server rules

    It isn't.

    Player based public shaming of cheaters is removed as it has no place on the forums and should be reported and left alone.

    What this is, is an explanation of why a team cannot continue in the tournament

    Hi WWII,

    Allow me to clarify what we consider public shaming on Shotbow.

    Public shaming is the naming of players for acts that are considered against the rules or the spirit of the game. Typically such shaming is done by text posts that name a player with no evidence to back it up. This means that a players reputation can be damaged by mere rumour and gossip, something that we are keen to keep at bay to ensure everyone is treated fairly - innocent until proven guilty.

    Even if evidence is presented in a public forum of a player breaking the rules this is still considered public shaming. This is due to how we process our Player Reports on Shotbow - we consider it a private and internal matter between staff and the player accused. Hence why the RAP forum is private and decisions are taken in private - we do not do mob justice!

    The situation above is slightly different. The Tournament is an official Shotbow event and as such it is important to be public and transparent about the what's going on with it. As such the disqualification of a team requires addressing and the reasons laid bare for all to see. The incident in question was caught on the official public livestream and the action taken for the incident was by an member of staff in line with administrative policy for Annihilation.

    Hope that clarifies matters :)

    Whoever is running the tournament is an idiot. First off, it's been months since the tournament started. Also, while the server IP is US.shotbow.net, the tournament times are in favor of the Japanese. Our torunament will be starting at 8 AM EDT which is 5 am for our team members who live in the west coast.



    Nice going Shotbow. Might aswell change the IP to JP.Shotbow.net

    We have a lot more Japanese entrants to the tournament than US entrants. Match times are dictated by the time that is agreeable to the majority of participating clans in the match.

    That's still not an excuse. Nobody ain't gonna play this game at 5 am.

    If they cared about the time, why didn´t they ask them to change it, the games are set to date and time by the players, not the admins. I would know who to blame here... (not the admins btw.)

    Navarr JUST said that the majority chooses. No matter what, even if one team asks, they wont get it.

    I don't understand anything about shotbow's thinking process through the whole tournament, on one had you had it so a team got a second chance to make the game "fair" and on the other had you have shotbow making a game at a time so one team can't make it to it, giving the single team a disadvantage. It is really hard to understand if they want the game fair or not.

    On a second note, why couldn't the times be reversed to 9am JST and 8pm EDT, that way nobody needs to wake up a some absurd hour to play minecraft.
