Organization: Trifecta and eUnited
Region: North America
Date of Ruling: 11/01/2017
Subject: SMITE Pro League Super Regionals 2017
Information: During Game 2 between the Super Regionals semifinals match of Trifecta vs. eUnited, players on Trifecta paused the game due to a technical issue. The problem was being worked on while the players were told to disconnect from the game to see if the issue was resolved. Due to the disconnect, the players were forced back to base and put into positions they did not have any control over.
Ruling: In a LAN environment, the root of the issue was known immediately and was to no fault of the players. To preserve the competitive integrity of the game and the tournament, the league operations team called for a remake of Game 2 between Trifecta and eUnited.
