Characteristics of Player Events
No gambling is allowed within the Services.

Therefore, when playing with or against other Users, it is Your skill in playing that is assessed against each other, and the winners will be the Users who, through skill and judgment, are most successful in the relevant Game. You should ensure that you are familiar with a Game before entering.
Duelmasters does not have knowledge of the probability of any particular participating User winning a Match, and makes no representations about an individual User’s chances of winning.
If and insofar Duelmasters provides a list or ranking of Users, this shows a statistical evaluation of the previous gaming results of the Users named there, based on the results communicated to Duelmasters. Duelmasters expressly makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the information on which the list is based or which are displayed in the list. In particular, Duelmasters does not warrant, represent or even assess the likeliness that a User named in the list may win or lose or otherwise achieve or fail to achieve a certain performance when participating in Player Events.
Duelmasters offers participation in Player Events as part of the Services in its function as a technical service provider and neither influences the course of events nor does Duelmasters participate in Player Events or place money bets/stakes.
Participation in Player Events
You can apply for participation in Player Events via your User Account by registering for the respective events or by inviting respective users of platform to duel. The participation process is deemed successfully completed once You have been added to the Player Event.

Duelmasters is NOT party to any Agreement between the Users regarding money bets (see Section 17 below). The fulfillment of the Services towards a User in connection with a Players Event begins with the admittance of the User to the event and ends with its ending or termination according to Section 16 below.

Rules of Player Events, Fees and Wagers
Insofar specific rules apply to a Player Event such rules will be presented to the Users and the User has to accept those rules in the course of the participation process as stated in Section 15 above. If not explicitly stated otherwise in the specific rules, the following provisions also apply to all Player Events:
The wager amount is immediately deducted from the virtual account balances of the Wallets of the participating Users.
The Event-Fee is calculated using a percentage of the respective stake amount of the User placed for the Player Event which is shown to the User at the beginning of the participation process. The Event-Fee is due for payment to Duelmasters immediately after completion of the participation process and is deducted automatically from the virtual account balances of the Wallets of the participating Users. The Event-Fee shall be due regardless of the outcome of the Player Event and the sake of the stakes. The rules of the respective Player Event and the provisions of Part 5 of these GTC shall apply.
The terms of calculation of the prize-money for the Player Event is displayed at the beginning of the participation process to the User.
The gaming phase of a Player Event is completed once all Game-results have been reported by all participating Users to Duelmasters via platform.
After completion of the Player Event, the winner(s) is/are credited the prize-money to his/her Wallet, ONLY if the outcome(s) of the Game(s) have been reported properly to Duelmasters. A proper reporting means that all participating Users must have reported the results without any contradictions i.e. all reports must consistently state the winner(s) of the Game(s).
In the event of a non-proper or contradictory reporting or else a dispute regarding the outcome of one or more Games, Duelmasters may at its discretion EITHER refund each stake amount back to each participating User’s Wallet OR request that participating Users provide additional evidence, including but not limited to photo or video evidence of Game results. In the latter case, paragraph (4) will apply if the game results are now reported properly. If this is not the case, Duelmasters will refund each stake amount back to each participating User’s Wallet.
If a User believes there has been a mistake with respect to any distribution of the prize-money he/she may contact Duelmasters via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users are forbidden from reporting false or incorrect information to Duelmasters. In case of false or incorrect reports, using cheats, Duelmasters reserves the right to ban the respective User and to terminate the User Agreement for cause. Funds in Wallet may be transferred to previous opponents of user who used cheats.
If a User does not show up to a Game or cancel or leave a Game before the end of the gaming phase of a Player Event, the respective Game(s) is/are considered to pay 25 percent fee of prize pool plus platform fees.
The Player Event has ended once the prize-money has been transferred to the winner(s) according to para. (4) or the take amounts have been refunded according to para. (5).
If a technical failure, which is not caused by Duelmasters leads to an early cancellation of a Game (e.g. caused by the Game provider or a User), then the stake amounts are refunded to the Wallets of the Users. The Event-Fee will remain due in these cases.
Duelmasters does not provide or hold or host Games and is in no case in any form responsible for Games to take place properly or for Users to take part in Games or report the results properly in the course of Player Events.
