Rules  Empty Rules

Sat Sep 22 2018, 19:37
At PremierHax, the main focus is for you to have fun and improve. We want to keep the rules simple, as at the end of the day, this is not meant to be a competitive league, but a relaxed and stress free league. However the rules that have been set, must be abided by. Bolded rules are new rules that have been added this season.

1. Competitors Rules

1.1 Captain Rules

  • Treat your opponents (and your own team) with respect
  • Show effort to contribute to the community
  • Conduct yourself in a respectable manner in public rooms, as a captain you are representing Premier Hax.
  • Ensure your team plays every fixture in a timely manner, wether it be on the matchday or completing a wild carded match within the 2 week time limit.

1.2 Player Rules

  • Treat your opponents with respect
  • Anything that could be deemed as offensive or crass will be looked into by the admins
  • Punishments will result in bans, either for a few games or for the rest of the season depending on the nature of the insult
  • Treat your captain and other players with respect, at the end of the day, people play Haxball to wind down after a hard day at school/work, not to be insulted
  • Any player caught impersonating will receive a permanent ban, and their captain a season ban.
  • Any player suspected of macroing will be investigated. If found guilty it is punishable by a permanent ban.

2. League Process

2.1 Line-ups & Transfers

  • A team must have at least 4 players in their line-up, the maximum roster size is 7 players
  • All cuts & signings are made via the team threads.
  • Captains should be the ones to make changes to rosters, but co-captains can be appointed to make changes as well. Captains should know that if a co-captain is appointed then they are free to make these changes in the absence of the captain.
  • Players wanting to leave a team can do so by removing themselves via their team thread but should be aware that they cannot play for more than 2 teams during a single season.
  • Signings can only be made during the transfer windows which are as follows:
  • Up until 19:00 on Matchday 1
  • From the conclusion of Matchday 7 up until 19:00 on Matchday 9
  • Transfer window will then re-open upon the conclusion of the season. No signings to be made after the mid-season transfer window except for special circumstances.

2.2 Replays

  • Match replays must be submitted in the Results thread
  • It is advised that everyone in the room, in case someone disconnects or accidentally loses the recording.
  • Replay submissions must have a link to the game (use, the score and the replay time when the player scored.
  • Results that are submitted in the thread without a replay are void and thus must be replayed. Therefore it is recommended that everyone in the room records the game.
  • Notes and complaints can be made in the replay thread
  • If a game has been submitted but doesn't provide the full recording, the game will have to be replayed

2.3 Team Rules

  • Teams must have a minimum of 4 players and a maximum of 7
  • Each team must have a captain
  • Each team can also have a manager. A manager is someone who acts as a captain but doesn't take up roster space. The manager has more power than the captain in this instance, however, managers are not allowed to play. In order to be eligible to become a manager one must have been in the position of captain or manager of their team during the most recent draft. Managers must wait 8 gamedays before they can return to the squad as a playing member
  • Each team can also have a co-captain. A co-captain has less power than the captain but acts as a captain when the captain isn't available. Co-captains can sign the team to cups and events

2.4 Format

  • The format will be 3v3 played on the Big stadium
  • The official days are Monday and Wednesdays at 8pm UK time
  • League matches are 14 minutes long, each half is 7 minutes
  • Fun-cups, pre-season cups can be set on a different format depending on the outcome of the polls or admins' preference. The time and goal limit can also be changed depending on the situation
  • [NEW] This season the league and cup will be played on the same day

2.5 League & Cup System

  • 3 points are rewarded for a victory, 1 point for a draw and 0 for a loss
  • Every half both teams must switch sides
  • This season there will be a play-off format, the top4 teams at the end of the league will qulify, 1st will play 4th and 2nd will play 3rd, then the winner of those two matches play each-other in the Grand Final to determine the winner. All play-off matches will be 2x7 game's, best of 3 games (first to win 2 games wins the match).
  • [NEW] The cup will also be played on 3v3 this season and the two-legged games are scrapped so are the stadiums

2.6 Wildcards

  • A wildcard is a postponement of a match. The match will have to be replayed at a later date and it's up to the two captains to arrange a date and time
  • You will have 4 wildcards to use per season and a wild card must be used 1 hour prior to a match. To use a wild card, post in the Wildcards thread
  • In a situation occurs where a captain postponed the game less than 1 hour prior to a match and can't play, the opposing team have an option to take a definite win but it's not necessary
  • If two teams wildcard a game and one of the teams sign a player, then its up to both captains as to whether the player can play. If both captains agree, then the player can play, however if both don't, then he cant. Evidence will need to be provided if one captain opposes the player playing
  • All games that have been postponed have to be played 2 weeks after the scheduled date, otherwise the score will be given as 0-0 unless one team can provide evidence of attempting to play the fixture
  • If a game hasn't been wildcarded, and the opponents don't have 3 players available for the match, at 20:15pm you are entitled to take a defwin or allow a late wildcard, its up to the captain to decide this.

2.7 Stream

  • Streamed games will be scheduled 35 minutes after the regular games
  • If you want to be on stream contact the admins
  • [NEW] Any streamers that would like to help out, please contact the admins

3. Misconduct

3.1 On the forums & TeamSpeak

  • Don't post anything that could be deemed as hugely offensive
  • Don't spam the forums or team speak
  • Don't post pictures of dead babies, sexual content, decapitated heads or anything of that nature
  • Be respectful to other users
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is not permitted and will result in a long-term ban

3.2 During game time

  • Banning anybody from the room in not permitted, if it happens it will result in a fixed-game ban depending on the nature
  • Any players that will rage will also be sanctioned with a fixed-game ban
  • Any use of macro is unacceptable and will lead to a permanent ban
  • Insulting the opposition or own players will be taken into consideration to the admins
  • If a player lags and shows proof as a screenshot (we recommend gyazo or snaggy, quick screenshots) the opponent must fair play the goal. If no proof is provided it is optional for the opponent to fair play

4. Administrators

4.1 Change in rules

  • The admin team has the right to enforce new rules during the season, should we need to.

If a player participates in a game that isn't a confirmed signing (has been added by the captain but hasn't themselves confirmed), the game will need to be replayed without the player in question.

Players can play for no more than 2 teams in any single season.
