Answered: DQ During Qualification Matches

Hello Karthik,
Yesterday at state in North Texas we had some teams in qualification matches playing extreme defense strategies that warranted a DQ, and they got one, but what I do not understand is the final score was not changed, the elevate would have affected the final match score and make us win. If there is a rule that states this, than why is this rule in place, because a team could just play a strategy that is illegal and make their partners win.

As stated in the rules, a team that is Disqualified in a Qualifying Match receives zero WP and SP. However their partner remains unaffected.
