Gameplay Rules

  • Teams will match up using Private Matchmaking.
  • If a player lags out before tip off it is an automatic restart. Quit the game and contact the opposing team to match up again.
  • If any player on your team keeps playing after a teammate lags out before quitting it will be counted as a loss. Your team must quit in under 30 seconds.
    • During the regular season, spreads will be enforced if a player lags out with sufficient evidence. If there is not enough evidence to support this occurrence it will result in an instant 2-0 loss regardless of prior series score.
    • During the playoffs, if a lag out occurs you are required to restart the game and play the time remaining with the same score differential at the time of the lag out.
      • Example: Team A is up 20-10 with the ball on Team B at the end of the 2nd Quarter. There are two quarters remaining. Team B lags out. Team A and B must play a new game up to the end of the 2nd Quarter, with Team A given a +10 advantage. (Round to nearest minute).
  • Do not count points to the spread that occurs after the first player has quit/lagged out. The team with a lag out must immediately quit as described above for this rule to apply.
  • All games must be streamed on the registered Twitch account(s). All games must be archived in case the series has to be reviewed.
  • Teams may quit out of the game with 30 seconds left. For every 15 seconds left in the game when a team quits out, 1 point is added to the score of the winning team, this also applies to forfeits.  Deadlines are very strict as the reg season is only 4 weeks and we understand their are a lot of teams to play, we know people have commitments outside of the game but try and work around with the other teams to ensure all games are finished in time. We encourage teams to get a 6th and 7th man as this will help get games done, if it comes to the end of the regular season and games aren't finished forfeits against your team will be made.
  • While playing league games you must be appearing online so we can manage everyone is using the correct ones. If this is not followed it may result in team forfeits or team removal from the competition.

  • Mismatch Silver can be used no higher than Silver.
  • Anyone found misusing these badges during the season will hand their team a loss for that match.

Regular Season

  • Teams must play ever other team in their conference in only one Best of 3 Series.
  • A win will earn your team 1 point (e.g if a team wins 2-1 in the BO3, it will reward one team with 2 points, and another with 1 point towards the conference ladder).
  • If a team cancels a Reg Season series without a valid reason (emergency/net issues) the opposing team will win via forfeit.

Playoffs

  • The playoffs will be made of the top 6 placed teams of each conference at the end of regular season.
