Inducements

  • Mercenaries can be hired of all positions.
  • No stars are allowed.
  • No cards are allowed.


Keeping the deadlines

Deadlines are in a two weeks interval to let time for coaches to arrange their matches. More precisely the two weeks deadline is counted form the date the last match was played in previous round. It provides more flexibility since when coaches play the schedule faster, the league can adapt. One way or another, a season can last for a maximum of a year long even the case of full house.

If you did not played ahead then admins will open a PM conversation for you, which will explicitely contain the date of your deadline and is considered as the official platform to keep in touch with your opponent and arrange the match. If a game is not played until the deadline, the staff decides who is responsible and bans him from the series forever. All points regarding to his team are cleared retroactively.


Concessions

Concession is permitted for a coach immediately after he is unable to field at least six players. Concession is prohibited for any other circumstances. In case of an illegal concession the particular coach will be banned from the series forever. All points regarding to his team are cleared retroactively.


Booted coaches


Winner:
Ability to buy a player of any price. This player is never gonna count towards the quota.


Second place:
Ability to buy a player which price is less than or equal to 100k. If only lineman would satisfy this rule, then the team is allowed to buy the cheapest non-lineman player. This player is never gonna count towards the quota.


Third place:
Ability to buy a player which price is less than or equal to 70k. This player is never gonna count towards the quota. Alternatively the team may choose to get a Star Player Contract and a Card Permission two Scores.

But Season II will be even better with more fun!


League Format

Round-robin, 4/2/1 points for W/D/L, 2 points against a Filler team, 0 points for concession or unplayed match. In case of ties, result versus each other decides first, then W, then TDΔ, then CasΔ, then TD+, then Cas+, then coin toss.

The League consists of 24 teams, one for each race. The ones not taken by a human coach are Filler teams. This allows us to let others join to an ongoing league. Filler teams also receive 2 points for the race they represent.

The season kicks off in early September. Fixed two weeks per round.

  • Piling On player is knocked out when rolling a double on armour or injury rolls
  • Right Stuff prevents the Tackle skill when blocked
  • Sneaky Git functions like Guard on foul assists

Deadlines

Season I had a strict deadline policy. With Season II, this is over. Having an unplayed match results both coaches is left without points and the league goes on. However, being constantly negligent will still result a permanent ban.
