1.5 DCI Membership Number
Tournament participants must provide their DCI number to the Scorekeeper during registration. Players without a DCI number must request one from the Tournament Organizer. There is no cost associated with joining the DCI, but members are only allowed one DCI number. Results containing temporary player numbers, temporary player names, or placeholders may not be reported to the DCI.
Quote from CondorLet me get one thing straight with you. When Condor and an official ruling disagree, 50% of the time the official ruling gets reversed later. The other 50% of the time, the rules get clarified/changed to make the ruling right when it really wasn't before.
Quote from IzNotUrSnaxSo I play at this pretty casual store for my FNMs. Problem is, If i ever lose a game, I lose more points than I would gather in 2 weeks. This situation is quite annoying considering im in the first 2 pages of my state. Can I make a different DCI number using the same information as the one I have right now? Of course, I would never use them both at the same event.
How about player awards? Can I transfer my points to my original number?
6.2. Cheating — Fraud
A person intentionally and knowingly violates or misrepresents rules, procedures, personal information, or any other relevant tournament information. Note that Fraud, like most cheating, is determined by an investigation and will often appear on the surface as a Game Play Error or Tournament Error.
Additionally, it is Fraud if a player (or teammate) notices an offense in their match and does not immediately call attention to it.
A. A player enters a tournament under an assumed name and/or using a different DCI number in an attempt to manipulate ratings.
B. A player alters the results of a match after the match is over.
C. A player lies to a tournament official to gain or keep an advantage.
D. A player lies to his opponent about his life total.
E. A player observes his opponent or teammate make an illegal play but does not call a judge because it is to his advantage.
F. A spectator gives false or misleading information to a tournament official that helps another player to cheat.
There will be zero tolerance for this type of activity. One does not need to be a player in a game to commit Fraud. In particular, teammates observing a game are expected to point out problems and call a judge to help if required.
A player must be aware that he or she has committed an error in representation in order for the infraction to be Fraud. For example, a player targeting a black creature with Terror has not committed Fraud if he or she forgot that Terror can not target black creatures, even though the action (playing Terror) was intentional and illegal. It is Fraud if a judge believes he or she was aware and hoping that his or her opponent would miss it.

Quote from BinaryBecause even "casual" sanctioned tournaments are sanctioned tournaments and count towards your rating.
Quote from IzNotUrSnaxI'm not denying it, I just what to know WHY it counts as fraud if I want to use a different account for some events?
Quote from BinaryBecause neither DCI number will be truly representative of your entire history of tournament play. Invites to some tournaments are based on your rating, and your true combined rating across all your DCI numbers may not be good enough to get you in.
Quote from IzNotUrSnaxCan someone please tell me how it's fraud if all you want is not losing points at a casual tourny?
