Rules and Support
By taking part in an Infinity Global League event you agree to:
|Behave in a sporting manner||Follow the full rules of the game, and not cheat, deceive, or do anything else that could be considered unsporting.|
|Treat your opponents with respect||Not insult, belittle, bully, or otherwise personally attack any person you interact with whilst taking part.|
Misogynistic, racist, homophobic, transphobic and ableist language will not be tolerated.
|Offer reasonable availability for scheduling games||Take the necessary steps to work with your opponent to schedule games at reasonable times. Please note that many of our events are global, and therefore this might mean needing to schedule games with players in different time zones.|
|Submit scores on time||Make sure results are reported before the round ends.|
|Be kind to Corvus Belli||We all have disagreed with CB on a myriad of issues. It’s important to remember that CB is made up of people, and they deserve kindness. |
They are not immune to criticism, by any means, but criticism can be framed respectfully and without vitriol.
It is also important to avoid leaking early-release material on IGL’s Discord! We live on the internet, leaks happen. If you want to discuss leaks you’ve seen, please do it elsewhere. CB trusts IGL and we should endeavor to honor that trust.
We have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech, extremist references, and ad hominem attacks.
We recognize that IGL participants come from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, and cultural norms may differ. Nevertheless, it is possible, regardless of your political and personal views, to engage in a fun and fruitful discussion of a game without incident.
Those of you who take issue with this policy may want to reflect on your general need to communicate in such a negative manner.
In cases where rules are not followed:
Failure to behave in a sporting or respectful manner will result in a warning.
Multiple warnings as a result of complaints from various players will result in a ban from future events.
All allegations of poor behaviour will be discussed by various members of the moderation team and decisions will be reached through collective agreement.
Failure to schedule games or to submit scores by the end of the round results in 0 points being awarded.
Specifically, 0 Tournament Points, 0 Objective Points, and 0 Victory Points being awarded to the offending player(s). Repeated and ongoing failures to successfully schedule games with various players will result in a ban from future events.
If you encounter a problem:
Talk to the moderators on the Discord as soon as you can.
We are here to help you! If you cannot find time to schedule a game with your assigned opponent then we could help find somebody else to fill-in. If you encounter a negative experience with a player then we will listen and act on your concerns, if warranted. Please keep in mind that this is an all-volunteer mod team, so please be respectful of individual moderators’ time. Asking questions and providing feedback is welcome, endless debate of a single ruling less so. You will find a #report-a-problem channel in the Discord to get in contact with the mods!
As Tournament Organizers, we cannot preemptively solve every difficult situation that may arise, so in lieu of a definitive ruling from us, please fall back on the fundamentals of the Infinity community at large, not just the IGL:
Be kind to one another, and be reasonable!
It should be a given that when difficult situations arise you talk to your opponent kindly and figure it out. However, in the event that there are Frequently Asked Questions that require some clarification, you may refer to the following rules clarification living document. If a ruling is not captured in this document and you feel it should be, you’re welcome to bring it up on our Discord. In the meantime, be kind to one another!
IGL House Rules
The IGL team and our players come from a vast array of backgrounds and varied metas with differing ways of handling certain situations in Infinity. The team has come up with some house rules, which are intended as guidelines for all leagues run by the IGL (unless otherwise noted). These house rules are not enforceable and exist more as a way to resolve conflicts and provide a public answer to common questions that come up before and during games.
All of these house rules are optional, although we would prefer that you abide by them for a smoother play experience on Tabletop Simulator. The one rule that is not negotiable is as follows:
Players must agree which, if any, house rules are in effect at the start of a game. If an agreement cannot be reached, roll a die to randomly determine whether or not the rule takes effect.
Here are the IGL House Rules:
|LoF and Buildings||Models may draw Line of Fire into and out of a building, but not through.|
|Small Openings||If there is a small opening in a piece of terrain, discuss with your opponent whether it is open for LoF purposes or not.|
It is worth noting that some of these rules, in particular the LoF and Buildings rule, is a subject of discussion within the IGL team in addition to the wider community! Many of the maps designed for the IGL are intended by the designers to be played as “True LoF,” i.e. you can draw LoF through any reasonably sized series of apertures in terrain. If you wish to play this way, and your opponent agrees, feel free to do so.
Since IGL is itself a growing meta, we will be collecting feedback on house rules. We will change and add to the house rule set as the culture of the IGL meta shifts, so if you have strong feelings and have data to support them, please let us know your thoughts in our End of League surveys!
