Season 2 Rulebook

Postby Maddude » September 19th, 2011, 8:32 pm

Here are the rules:


1. 3v3 Big, two 5 minute halves and no score limit. Draws are allowed of course.

2. Official Matches are only in match rooms with dedicated hosts.

3. Admin must record the match.

4. Subs can be only be made when a goal is scored or at half-time.

5. Rosters of 4.

6. The league this season will have 6 teams in division 1 and 6 teams in division 2.

7. If a player disconnects from the game then they cannot be replaced by another member of their team until the end of the half or until a goal is scored to allow a sub to be put on. The disconnected player may re-join the match room and be put back in by the neutral overseer/host straight away.

8. A 15 second lag test will be done where the game will start but no kick-offs to see if the ping is fair for both teams. THIS MUST BE RECORDED AS WELL.

9. Once the half has been agreed to play by the captains, it will be played until the end of that half unless it is unplayable for the majority of both teams.

10. A goal shall be credited to the offensive player who last touched the ball before it went into the goal.

11. An assist shall be credited to the second-to-last offensive player to touch the ball before it went into the goal, provided that the ball was not played or possessed by any player of the defensive team between the time he last touched it and the goal being scored.

12. An assist shall be credited to the third-to-last offensive player to touch the ball before it went into the goal, provided that the ball was not played or possessed by any player of the defensive team between the time he last touched it and the goal being scored.

13. You must turn up five minutes before the start time for your match, join the correct division room AND prove it is you, therefore I'd suggest turning up 10 minutes early. The match will start at the right time unless the captain notifies me that a player is coming.

The first match in the list starts at 8pm.
The second match starts at 8:25pm.
The third match starts at 8:45pm.


For the cup matches Group A & B matches in one room and Group C & D in the other.

14. Impersonating a player is not allowed and if caught doing so you will be banned from two matches the first offence, the second offence the rest of the season, the third offence forever.

15. Cup matches are standard league format, look up to see.

16. During the group stage of the cup, draws are allowed.

17. During the knock-out stage of the cup matches can only end in a win or loss, therefore if after two halves the match is still tied at whatever score it is, the game will then go to a third half where the team who scored first or are lower in the league(if the game is 0-0 after two halves) choose which side to start on and then the game is played in a golden goal format; whoever scores first wins.

18. Before kicking off confirm with the statistician who scored/assisted, this makes their job easier as they do not have to go back and watch the replay, in short don't be a mong as a captain might want to sub as well.

19. If a team can only provide two players the match will be played 2v3 with a score cap of 8 goals to avoid major stat padding.

20. If a team can only provide one player the match will be forfeited 5-0.

21. If player is picked up from the free agency they must stay on the team for 2 match days.

TIEBREAKS are done on: Points, Goal Difference and then if needed goals scored. (For league/cup group standings)

Will change it to a sub can be put in normally once a goal has been scored, that is what it should be :/

Question about the assists rule.

I kick the ball down the field to DEV, DEV passes to V-11, V-11 passes back and DEV scores.

DEV gets a goal, V-11 gets an assist, but what about the secondary assist? Do I get it? Does DEV get an assist on his own goal? Or is there just not one?

You would still get it, as long as the rules still apply because you still assisted the play.

have a problem with rule 9.

It just gives some childish members to cause drama. Giving the players the right defeats the purpose of testing ping

For example, you have one childish twat saying it is unplayable, then the rest of the team play along because they are losing. All the whinging leaves the other team with no choice but to give a replay

Cath if the other team don't have a change in ping, I think the game would remain

By the way, are we letting teams take reserves when they can't get 3 of their players for a league game? or would that have to be played 2v3?

19. If a team can only provide two players the match will be played 2v3 with a score cap of 8-0 to avoid major stat padding.

Why not just temporarily draft a Free Agent for the game if it is 2v3?

They would have to cut a player and pick up one from the free agency and would not be allowed to be removed off the team until after 2 match days.

8. It's never 15 seconds lol.

10. This shouldn't be the case. There are situations where it quite blatantly isn't their goal but they still get it. There should be room for common sense in these situations and it shouldn't be credited to anyone.

11. This doesn't consider situations where a defender may touch it but it doesn't really make a difference to the trajectory of the pass and the assist was clear. According to the rules it wouldn't be an assist but in common sense terms it blatantly would be.

12. Why does the third to last player get an assist, wtf?

13. Rooms are never up until the time and sometimes later and the games always start later.

17. It goes to a third half if it's a draw but how long is the half? Is there a time limit to it?

18. It's only job the statistician has lol, how does it need being made easier?

19. If the cap is 8-0 then a team could win 15-1 or something like that.

Also, if a team signs a player on the game day, are they eligible to play that day?

8. 15 seconds is a minimum but 1 minute is normally fine.

10. Yer sometimes obviously it's an own goal so does not count.

11. That would count as an assist yes. It says "provided that the ball was not played or possessed by any player of the defensive team", if it bounces off the defender without them kicking it then yes that is an assist.

12.
eg: Cath passes to opc.
opc passes to Mad.
Mad scores.

This way cath gets credited for the inital pass.

13. Well times are spread out now so normally it is fine, will edit this to a time it has to start by no matter what to not interfere with other matches.

17. Golden goal, that half keeps going till a team scores.

18. A brief look away and you can miss a goal or the pass before so just a quick check is no real problem.

19. Once the team with 3 get to 8 goals, the game is over.

If the signing thread is made before 6pm and they are already a free agent or acquired from trade.
