Slow play

2 posts in this topic

What is FFG's stance when it comes to slow play in a tournament? I will be running a Store even later in the year and a couple of the players who are likely to take part are notoriously slow players. In the last even they were taking an hour just to play one game. Although it means you are not going to come first slow play does mean that you will get a point due to it being a draw, which means you could technically do better than people who have played in the spirit of the game. Is there something in place to deal with this or would some sort of penalty be fair if 'x' amount of their games are draws?

It falls under "Unsporting Conduct" in the tournament rules. If you suspect players are doing this issue a warning or eject them.
