VC Presents: The Pokerface Tribute

Pokerface was a good friend. He always wanted to fight and was always fun and in a good mood. Recently there was some PvP drama and Pokerface was scammed. The Community rose up thanks to some specific players who brought up the issue all over the Diablo world. Poker was so moved that he sold the #1 Item score !@#$%^-*!'s Chicken to fund this Tournament. Pokerface was banned a few weeks ago. We shall always remember what he did. The gold has been saved and he has stated that he intends to allow the tournament to commence without him. Vicious Cattle was graced with the privilege of hosting this event. Some simple rules that Poker wanted: Equal gold for each class, each player plays twice. Pokerface has donated 5 Billion gold to this event.

Prize Pool: 5 Billion Gold
Each Class is allotted 1 Billion Gold.
First Place: 500 Million Gold
Sec Place: 250 Million Gold

Question.


Some Pre-Existing Rules: These WILL be enforced.
- Players are not allowed to change gears and skills during battle.
- Players must actively engage their opponent at least once every 30 seconds.
- Players may not Summon Pets or set traps until the round begins.
- Players are not allowed to use the island in any way.


How are these rules going to be enforced since players will be playing the match up on their own and report the result at the end of it?

Maybe I can get some volunteer referees together and split the job up. Basically whoever is a known trustworthy pvp'er.
