Cheating: 
All accusations of cheating or violation of any of the listed rules require proof from the accusing party. UGC admins will make the best judgment around accusations of cheating to enforce any penalties and to make the best-informed decision. The burden of proof is on the accusing party. We highly suggest that as many players as possible take pictures/screenshots and/or videos of their matches to support their claims. If no proof can be provided of a cheating accusation, the results of the match will stand.
