I had a ruling at a State Championship that seemed too severe. During game 1, I attacked using Quaking Punch, item locking my opponent. My opponent had 2 cards in their hand. On her next turn, she played a VS Seeker for a Professor Birch, and shuffled her lone card into her deck. We realized the mistake within seconds. We were both penalized a game loss. Under the penalty guideline for a severe game play error (7.1.3) the opponent (me) should have only got a warning. I appealed to the Head Judge stating my penalty was too severe. He stated this is how it was ruled at both Nationals and Worlds so players would not do that on purpose just to have a game loss issued to their opponent. Certainly, if “Judge” was played, and both shuffled their hands into the deck (similar to “N”), both players could/should have a game lose. Is this the case? Has it been ruled this way for all Tier 2 tournaments, superseding 7.1.3 in the penalty guideline? If so, what prohibits a player that won game one quickly playing a 2nd supporter (for example, plays Lysandre, then playing various other cards during the turn, then playing Shauna, shuffling their hand into their deck), breaking the game state, and causing a double game lose, thus winning the match? Thanks!
