Harassment and rejection of a TO’s ruling after it has been explained

A player immediately receives a 2 week ban after performing one of these violations, a 2nd time results into a permanent ban.

Using an illegal card in tournaments:

If it’s the first match of the player in the tournament and the deck has changed the player needs to continue playing with that deck for the entire tournament, if it is not the first round then it results into a disqualification.
If the card being used is illegal from play by the Konami Forbidden & Limited list or from a custom banlist, then the player is immediately disqualified.

If a player is late to his match for more than 15 minutes, a match loss is issued. If a player is late for 10 minutes but less than 15, a game loss is issued.
If a player wants to leave during a game, they may.
The above 3 circumstances do NOT warrant a warning.
