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.

Captain Rules:

Treat your opponents with respect. Anything that could be deemed as offensive or crass will be looked into by the admins. Punishments can result in losing the captaincy and bans, either for a few games or for the rest of the season depending on the nature of the insult.

Captains have the power of signing players and cutting players. If a player or vice captain submits a thread cutting or signing a player, then the captain must agree for it to go through.

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.

Use of a macro is classed as cheating and is therefore forbidden from this league.

Players must use their forum names in matches, however we will issue leeway for slight changes, such as lower/uppercase letters etc.

Any player caught impersonating will receive a lifetime ban, and their captain a season ban.


Match replays must be submitted in the thread.

It is advised that everyone in the room, incase someone disconnects or accidentally loses the recording.

Replay submissions must have a link to the game (good replay hosting sites are e.haxball and haxballtube), 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.

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.


The format will be 3v3 played on the Big stadium.

Games will last 7 minutes per half. There will be two halves.

Team colours are allowed.


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 5 wildcards to use per season and a wildcard must be used 1 hour prior to a match. To use a wildcard, post in the Wildcards forum.

If one team does not have enough players, they can arrange a forced postponement. This does not count towards a teams wildcard limit.

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.

Draft Rules:

Team captains will take turns to pick players in the draft. The order will be released in due course.

New teams will begin proceedings. The order of the new teams is randomized. Then the rest of the teams pick in reverse table order. That means that the team that finished 8th picks first and the team that finished 1st picks last. The order of the teams stays the same throughout the procedure.

Captains are not forced to pick players in the draft, however they must meet the squad requirements (minimum of 4 players per team).

If the captain can't make it for the draft, make sure you let the admins know who you want to sign in the draft. A preference list e.g. 1. Player A, 2. Player B, 3. Player C is advised. We want a smooth draft with no large delays. Alternatively, elect someone as temporary captain if you can't make it and he can make the picks for you.

Cheating the draft (by getting players to sign up using fake names) is not allowed and will lead to your captaincy being revoked and the offending player banned.


Trades can be made between teams. The amount of trades that teams have is unlimited.

Trades can consist of trading players, or draft picks for the next season.

Cuts and Signings:

Captains have a maximum of 4 cuts they can make in a season.

A player leaving the team on his own accord will not count as a cut. A player that uses a cuts themselves in this manner will have to wait a minimum of 5 gamedays before being eligible to join the Free Agency

Cutting a player that is deemed inactive, or has been suspended for a number of games, will not count towards your 4 cuts.

Drafted players cannot be cut for 5 gamedays unless they are inactive or have requested a cut.

Free Agents:

When the draft ends, a free agency thread will be opened. Any players not picked in the draft should sign up to the Free Agency.

Free Agents can be signed at any point during the season.

Free agents can be signed if the team has a free slot, however a drafted player cannot be cut to make way for a free agent until after 5 gamedays have been played.

To be a part of a team, the player must have a registered account on the forums.

The player must also have made a post in the Free Agency Thread.

Cup Rules:

The league also holds a cup competition, that will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays (instead of the league fixture).

Games are 7 minutes long over the period of two halves.

All cup games are played on the Medium pitch.

In the event of a tie after regulation time, the game will go into a golden goal period, where the next goal wins. The game will be played until a goal is scored, there will be no half time or switching sides or anything.

Forum Rules:

Don't post anything that could be deemed as hugely offensive.

Don't spam the forums.

Don't post pictures of dead babies, decapitated heads or anything of that nature.

Be respectful to other users.

Don't harass other users

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

"We used to pride ourselves on producing midfield artists in this country. Players like Tony Currie, Alan Hudson, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne were just a few English playmakers developed in our clubs - players who could peel an orange with either foot but sadly no longer. What a pleasure then to see an artist at work even if he is a foreigner."
