Well then you made your own bed. Just come up with some lameshit excuse and no one would say anything. My cam stopped working 10 min ago, my dog bid the cable, my cat urinated on the cam, my neighbour's wife needs it for onlyfans whatever. If they can't prove it, they'll simply accept it.I will clarify - I did not provide a reason to Chrazini on DMs as I had a private reason that I do not want to disclose.
I do understand that the decision made was entirely based on the rulebook. I understand that because I did not provide a reason, it is fair for admins to make that call. However, my argument is that games should take priority over cams. Even though the draft of the map pool I was probably only going to play 1-2 games, I would've still liked to participate in the tournament, and therefore asked for a one-time exception, which was denied.
I hope that this clarifies things - guess the discussion should be about whether certain rules could be bypassed due to the importance of the match (and because I have previously complied in kotd/round1 vs AI) if the reasoning wasn't clear (which I did not provide a proper reason).
But straight up refusing to follow rules without an explanation looks always bad.
