The number one goal of all of our leagues is for everyone to have fun and enjoy the game. In order for everyone to have fun, we need everyone to play fairly, be “sim” and treat each other with respect. Below is an outline of our league rules. Everyone must read and “like” the post before being cleared to play. You are expected to follow the rules, play sim and not “cheese”, cheat or glitch to win. If you are a lobby player who is primarily concerned about your record, this league is not for you. SETTINGS All-Pro 10 minute quarters 15 second run off Sliders: TBD The following settings are default and should not be changed or will they cause desync issues Camera Settings: Zoom Defensive Graphics: Full Kick Aiming Arc: On Camera Toggle: On TWITCH Everyone needs to have a Twitch account to be able to stream games and chat with league members during games (you do not need to chat when you are playing ) If you do not have a Twitch account, you can sign up for a free account here. Once you have signed up, make sure to go into your settings (wrench icon), go to "Channel & Videos" and click the box next to "automatically archive my broadcasts." This is required and allows us to go back and watch games and pull the video for league related shows if need be. SCHEDULING Each week, we will post a scheduling thread for that week's games in the league's Scheduling sub-forum. We will tag each member so that it will alert you to the scheduling thread being posted. We will also assign a user from each game who will be responsible for streaming the game and sending the game invite. (NOTE: Each member must post in this thread within the first 24 hours after advance or be subject to being put on auto and having your opponent play the CPU.) While we prefer that you use the scheduling thread to schedule your games, you may also use text (if your opponent requests), PM, PSN and Group Me to schedule your games as well. Keep in mind, however, that proof will need to be provided if a scheduling dispute arises. Posting in the scheduling thread is the easiest way to avoid those disputes. Once you and your opponent have agreed on a time to play your game, the person who is assigned streaming and invite responsibilities must post the teams involved, the time and date of the game being played and the Twitch channel that it will be broadcast on in the weekly scheduling thread. This is so that we know the game has been scheduled and so that other league members know when it is being played in case they would like to watch the game. Here is an example of how to post your game when it has been scheduled: Minnesota Vikings - majesty95 vs Denver Broncos - woodsmall12 Saturday, Sep. 6 at 9 PM CST twitrch.tv/majesty95 How to Schedule Please give as much information as possible about your availability when posting in the scheduling thread. Simply posting "when can you play?" does not help your opponent nor does it help get the game scheduled quickly. When posting to schedule your game, give as much info as you can about your availability. For example: Hey woodsmall12 I can play FRI after 7 PM CST, SAT and SUN anytime after 3 PM CST. If your opponent has already posted this info for you when you sign on, select a time from their availability and schedule the game. For example, using the availability above, you may be able to play FRI night at 10 PM CST. Reply to your opponents post and say something like "hey, I can play FRI at 10 PM CST. Does that still work for you? If not, I am also available from 10 AM to 2 PM CST on SAT and all day SUN. Let me know what works best." Your opponent should then confirm the time you proposed or pick a new time from your listed availability. Follow this process until you can agree on a time to play. Scheduling Disputes Each member should check the forum regularly and be diligent in trying to schedule their games. If both members have been trying to schedule their game but have not been able to agree on a time, the game will simply be simmed. This happens from time to time and users should be accommodating to the league when this happens. In the event that one user has been making an effort to schedule and their opponent has not been, the opponent may be put on auto so that the active user can play the CPU. League leadership will use their discretion in putting players on auto and do what is most fair. To prevent potentially being placed on auto, make sure you are trying hard to schedule your games. The league will typically advance every 72 hours. However, this may be modified slightly due to an early advance or a scheduling conflict such as holidays. Early Advances From time to time, all games in the league will finish well before the advance deadline. In this event, we will advance to the next week early. Therefor, we encourage users to try and get their games in as soon as possible so that we can keep the league moving and everyone involved. Games vs the CPU are required to be played within 48 hours of advance. If 48 hours have passed and all user vs user games have been played, we will advance. If a CPU game has still not been played at that time, it will be simmed. So make sure to get any game vs the CPU in as quickly as possible after the advance. PLAYBOOKS Custom playbooks and legendary coach playbooks are NOT allowed. Also, the Philadelphia Eagles playbook is NOT allowed except by the Eagles. You may use any other team's offensive or defensive playbook. Once you select your playbook you must post it in the Playbook Selection thread. If you decide to change your playbook, you need to post the change in that thread as well. Be sure to set your playbook up before the game starts. The easiest way to do this is go to TEAM > TEAM ROADMAP > SCHEMES > and then change your playbook there so that it automatically populates in game. You can also check your playbook before the game starts in the pre-game menu. NOTE: If you have the wrong playbook selected once the game starts the game WILL NOT be restarted. It is your responsibility to have the correct playbook picked when you start your game.
