- D (Default) - A team will lose by DEFAULT if they know
there is absolutely no way they can field the minimum requirement for a team for a contest,
and subsequently come into the office and fill out a Default Form and submit it to an IM
Staff member. A Default counts worse than a normal Loss.
- F (Forfeit) - A team will lose by FORFEIT if they do
not show up for a game by the required time, do not have at least the minimum number of
players required to start or finish a game, or if the game is stopped by the officials
or supervisors due to inappropriate behavior on the part of that team’s players or
spectators). A Forfeit counts worse than a Default.
