On the case of RvB.
We acknowledge that we initially allowed an exception for the two sides of RvB to compete in the tournament as two separate teams. On further review of that decision and the b and c team rule we found that to make such an exception and exclude other teams would raise serious questions. While we respect both sides of RvB who have both fought in the tournament before we must see them as one alliance in the eyes of the tournament.
We have been in contact with the executor of both alliances and have reached a decision that will allow both sides to compete together. This decision is now final and is a special case, it will have no impact on any other judgement with the b and c team rule on other alliances.
Both RvB - Red Federation and RvB - Blue Republic will compete as one alliance during the tournament, they will be referred to as "Red Vs Blue" in all matters related to the tournament.
Members of both alliances will be eligible for the joint team and should stay in their own alliance.
Members in either alliance must still have been a part of their alliance from downtime the 5th of May. Switching from one to the other will break this rule and make them ineligible.
