Errors & Exceptions

Cancelling/Voiding Question or Entries

5p0rtz.com may void a question or entry for reasons including, but not limited to: cancelled or postponed events or elements of an event which make the tournament invalid; suspected criminal or fraudulent activity; data errors where the nature of a tournament has been unacceptably distorted by a clear data or administrative error. In the unlikely event that a tournament remains open to enter after the underlying event has started, whether through an error on our part or because the start time of the event was brought forward, we reserve the right to void any entries to the tournament we believe have gained an advantage by entering after the actual start time of the event. If you believe this may have happened, please contact the helpdesk. Some questions may make specific provisos about the possibility of voiding if certain criteria are not met.

We also reserve the right to void any entry that we may reasonably believe is under age or involved with any criminal and/or fraudulent activity or any entry by a player previously banned from the website.

Cancelling/Voiding

In some circumstances, a tournament may be voided. Normally this will be a result of the particular event being cancelled or postponed for more than 24 hours. But a tournament may also be voided if there is reasonable suspicion of criminal or fraudulent activity or if 5p0rtz.com is unable to satisfactorily determine the outcome of the event itself. If a tournament is cancelled or voided, stakes will be refunded in full. 5p0rtz.com will announce the reason(s) for cancelling or voiding a tournament as soon as reasonably possible. If an event is cancelled before the start time, all tournaments relating solely to that event will be cancelled. If the event forms part of a larger tournament  that tournament will stand unless more than half the events contributing to it are cancelled. If an event is postponed, all related tournaments will normally be cancelled or voided if the event does not go ahead within 24 hours of the original scheduled start time.

Errors, Omissions and Changes

If an error is made in setting up a tournament  or a question within a tournament  we reserve the right to void that tournament question if we feel the intention behind the tournament question is obscured by the error. However, if an error is made but it remains obvious what is intended, the tournament question will normally stand. In the event of an error in the settlement of a tournament (for example, incorrect data is used to answer a question), in order to recompense the correct winners, we reserve the right, if appropriate, to reclaim any winnings paid out in error.
