Haxball Galaxy RuleBook V5.


1) Playstyle
2) Player Movement
3) Promotion and Relegation
4) Cup Information
5) Wildcards
6) Captain Information
7) Team Colours
8) Draft
9) Minimum UK player quota
10) Miscellaneous




1) Playstyle

- 1.1) League Matches are 3v3 on the stadium 'Big'.

- 1.2) Matches are 7 mins each half with teams swapping over from red to blue.

- 1.3) 3v2 will be allowed, if the both captains agree, The captain with 2 players has the right to forfeit and lose 3-0, but this can only be done before the game has started. It is not mandatory but encouraged for captains to postpone matches when teams only have 2 players. Games that are 3v2 can only got to a 6 goal difference (6-0, 7-1, 8-2 etc.) in favour of the team that has 3 players, this is the mercy rule and it is enforced by admins to stop statpadding.

- 1.4) No stats will be awarded in the even of a 'defwin'.

- 1.5) If a team only has 1 player then they will be given a defloss of 3-0. If after 15 mins after the scheduled kick off time a team does not have sufficient players to play the match, or is not prepared to play the match after agreeing on a host, then the opponent has the right to take the 3-0 defwin. Once again it is encouraged that a captain will postpone the game if their opponent does not have enough players but once again is not mandatory. Admin discretion will be used in these instances.

- 1.6) Players must use their registered forum names in matches or a name which is recognisable or the opposing captain has the right to force a rematch or a defwin could be given.

- 1.7) Substitutions can be made after goals and at halftime, if a player disconnects from the game then they can be subbed back on to the pitch or a replacement can be subbed on.

- 1.8) If a player is lagging and both captains agree then that player can be substituted regardless of if the game is in process. Once again captains are encouraged to 'fairplay' in this instance to sub a lagging player off the pitch.

- 1.9) We prefer match hosts to be neutral, but can be from either team given that the ping is playable.

- 1.10) Both captains have to agree on a match host and unless it suddenly becomes unplayable then at least that half will be played on that host.

- 1.11) Use of handicap for match hosts if they are playing is not mandatory but is not discouraged.

- 1.12) If both captains are struggling to find a neutral host or one that is good for both teams, one host from each team can host the 1st and 2nd halves of a game.

- 1.13)  A match test is highly recommended to make sure that the ping is playable for both teams. If there are any problems then the admin team is always available to help, but do not bother us if we are in a league game.

- 1.14) If no playable host is available then the match will be either delayed on the same matchday or postponed to another matchday. It is not the job of the admins to find your match host, but of course we can help.

- 1.15) Match links should be linked either through teamspeak, private messaging on the forum or through your teams private forum, no match links should be linked on the chat, if it is then a chatmod or admin will clear the chat and the room will have to be rehosted.


2) Player Movement


- 2.1) Teams are allowed unlimited cuts throughout the Season.

- 2.2) Teams will be locked for 2 weeks (4 gamedays) after the draft. After this, players can be signed from the free agency via the 'Waivers' system. Waivers are explained in more detail in a post made soon.

- 2.3) When signing a player through Waivers, a 24 hour waiting period from the thread being made has to be done before a player can be confirmed to a team. If a match is scheduled for 8:00 GMT on Monday for example, a thread signing a player from waivers has to be made before 7:30 GMT the day before, in this case Sunday.

- 2.4) For a player to be signed through Waivers, they must be in the free agency.

- 2.5) No player can play for 2 teams in the same matchday if both games kick off on the same day. Players may however be eligible to play for two games on the same listed matchday in the event of postponed games being moved backwards.

- 2.6) The league does not recognise retirements.

- 2.7) Players can be traded between teams.

- 2.8) As long as both captains agree anything can be traded between teams. This includes draft picks. Admins reserve the right to block any trades if they feel that it is an unfair trade or someone is being treated unfairly by it.

- 2.9) Players can move teams without that player having to be cut by doing a 'blank space trade' where a player is transferred to another team for nothing in return. Teams cannot go over their 7 player limit in trades.

- 2.10) Only captains that have been in the captaincy role for more than 3 league games can be put into the non-playing manager mode. Having a manager in your squad allows you to sign another player to make your team have 7 players again, but if the manager comes back from manager mode then a player must be cut to facilitate this. New teams can be made with a player in the manager position, but the same rules about only being allowed 7 players still applies.


3) Promotion and Relegation

- 3.1) In Season 8 there will be no Promotion or Relegation, information about potential Promotion/Relegation for later Seasons will be released when applicable.


4) Cup Information

- 4.1) There is no Cup competition planned for Season 9.


5) Wildcards

- 5.1) Each team will be assigned 5 'Wildcards' for use in the league.

- 5.2) 3 of these Wildcards must be used before 19:30 GMT on a matchday to be valid. The other 2 Wildcards can only be used 24 Hours before a match to Wildcard it.

- 5.3) All Wildcarded games must be played either before or on the last day of the Season.

- 5.5) Wildcards must have the original date and time the game was meant to be played as well as a new date and time for the game to be played, both captains have to agree on a time. If captains can't agree then an admin will intervene.

- 5.6) If a new captain is put in place then Wildcards will be replenished for a team, obvious abuse of this rule will be stopped however.

- 5.7) Wildcards should be used in this forum.


6) Captain Information

- 6.1) Captains should have a replay of all of their matches in the league, so to ensure that a replay is acquired from each game we recommend that 2 players from each team (including the captain) as well as the  match host record the match.

- 6.2) Match replays should be uploaded to http://www.haxballtube.com/. If there is no replay of a match then the game might be made to be replayed.

- 6.3) No stats will be awarded for a result without a replay.

- 6.4) Admins reserve the right to punish any teams that repeatedly do not record matches, or if any captain withholds a match replay.

- 6.5) Match results should be posted by captains in this forum.

- 6.6) Matchday guidelines can be found here (only captains can see this.)


7) Team Colours

- 7.1) Information about rules for Team Colours can be found here.


8) Draft

- 8.1) From Season 7 onwards (until further notice), at the start of each Season there will be a draft. For the Season 7 Draft all players from teams will be cut. In drafts in subsequent Seasons, teams will be allowed to retain 3 players (including the team captain) at the end of the Season, with the rest of the players in the team having to be cut.

- 8.2) Drafts will be broadcast live on our twitch.tv channel (here.)

- 8.3) The Season 7 Draft order will be randomised before the draft. In Seasons after this, the order will be relative to the league table of the previous Season. For example the team that comes first will have the last pick in the first round, and the team that comes last will have the first pick in the first round, with this inverting for the next round and so-on.

- 8.4) Captains will have 3 minutes to complete draft picks.

- 8.5) Captains reserve the right to miss out draft picks if they wish.

- 8.6) Use of fake nicknames in the draft has a 0 tolerance policy. Admin discretion will determine whether a player has signed up to the draft not using their regular (or a recognisable) nickname.


9) Minimum UK player quota.

- 9.1) From Season 7 onwards, all teams are obliged to have at least 2 UK players in their squad. Failure to do this will result in punishments that will be decided by the admin team case by case, this can be anything including docking points from a team.

- 9.2) In addition to this rule, a fair playtime policy will be implemented. 'Fair playtime' means that if a player is active in a team then they should get fair playtime. This is to stop captains abusing the lack of rule for at least 1 UK player to be on the pitch for each team all the time. Admin discretion will decide whether this rule is being followed by all teams.


10) Miscellaneous

- 10.1) Starting from the 19/8/12 the use of macros has a zero tolerance policy, you will be banned from the current season if you have used a macro. Repeat offenses will result in permanent banning from the league.

- 10.2) If there is any impersonations in league matches then the user who impersonated will be banned for the season, also any captain that has purposely got a player to impersonate for their team will also be punished. Matches can be deflossed or be rematched if an impersonator has partaken in the match.

- 10.3) Any obvious abuses of loopholes etc will be discussed amongst the admins, just because a certain rule (that common sense should dictate that you should not do) does not mean that you will not be punished for it.

- 10.4) Use of 'flag hack' or 'haxball profiler' is allowed in the league.

- 10.5) We reserve the right to change and edit any rule we feel necessary to be changed.

- 10.6) No two players with the same IP address can play in league without otherwise proof of identification.

- 10.7) If Rising has to go pray during a game then he will be allowed to be subbed.


Suggestions are welcome, on this thread.

Forgot to lock this, as there isn't really discussion seeing as this is the rules, discussion goes in the rule discussion thread in the OP.

Locked.

Bump, some rule changes have been made regarding inactive cuts

mlfaijati wrote:
Cuts/Signs

Captains are allowed 6 cuts/signs in the season, if a new captain is appointed then the team in question will be replenished to 6 cuts/signs. Admins can intervene if there are any special circumstances. Players signed must be confirmed in the teams relevant sign in thread, they must be signed before the game in question is scheduled to start to be eligible to play in that game. Being signed in the free agency is optional and not mandatory. A player retiring from a team will also not count as a cut and a retired player cannot play for any other team in the rest of that season, but can return from retirement but the team that retired the player has rights over where the player goes. No player can play for 2 teams in the same matchday, regardless of kickoff times.

Inactive Player cuts

If a player has been inactive for inactive for a period that the admins deem to be long enough then that player can be cut without using one of the 6 cuts and signs for that Season. Each case will be dealt with separately and admin discretion will always be the deciding factor over whether a player is inactive or not. As a general rule if a player has been active in the last 2 weeks then they will not be allowed to be cut as inactive. Inactivity does not just mean on the forum or whether they play league games or not, activity on other forums and teamspeak will also be brought into consideration for the admin decision.

Player Retirement

A player can retire from a team if they wish, this will save a team having to use a cut to get rid of a player who does not wish to play in the league anymore. If a player retires from a team they cannot play for another team for the rest of the Season, they can sign for another team in the next Season however. A player can reverse their retirement by unretiring but after unretiring they are listed as a player of the team they retired from and would have to be traded or cut from that team to play for another.

Trades

Players can be traded between teams, this not does not take away any cuts from a team. As long as both captains agree anything can be traded between teams. Players can move teams without that player having to be cut by doing a 'blank space trade' where a player is transferred to another team for nothing in return. Teams cannot go over their 6 player limit in trades.

I reformatted the rules but most of the same stuff applies, some other rules have also been edited to take the time to read.

Rulebook updated for Season 7. In bold are new additions to the rulebook for Season 7. Rules with a strike through them are old rules which are not applicable for Season 7. I suggest you familiarise yourself with the new additions, especially if you a captain to avoid confusion in the future.
