XBS Season 19 Rule Reminder & Adjustments

Season 19 Rule Reminder & Adjustments

There have been some questions regarding some gameplay rules that will be followed this season. We just wanted to provide some feedback on the issue so that, as a league, we are all on the same page.

Reminders:
  • Wraparounds are permitted this season.
  • Skating backward animation is allowed as well.
Note: Please remain respectful in your game play when it comes to the above rules.

Secondly, we have made some alterations to the lineup/scheduling rules. You can find these rules in the Players per game section of the Season 19 rulebook that will be re-posted at XBS shortly.


Players per game
  • Each team is expected to ice all 6 players. Having games on only 3 nights a week will allow teams to be more flexible on rescheduling. However, in the scenario where a team can't get a 6th player, the rule goes as follows:
    • The other team (having 6 players) can decide whether they want to play against 5 or reschedule the game.
    • In the eventuallity that the team's vote goes 50/50, the tiebreaker goes to rescheduling.
    • If the team of 6 decides to play against 5, they also can decide whether the Ai is a forward or a defenseman on the other team.
    • Teams will have a limit of three "late" reschedules. After the limit is reached, rescheduling won't be an option and the choices for the team of 6 are: (1) playing against 5 or (2) a forfeit win. If both teams agree on a reschedule well in advance, it doesn't count towards the reschedule limit.
  • Games should be started within 10 minutes after the official start time, otherwise a forfeit will occur.
  • Owners should encourage their team members to be online at least 10 minutes before the official start time.

We are really hoping to avoid any availability issues this season. Nobody enjoys playing against a team of 5 so please make every effort to field a roster of 6. If you have any questions regarding the information in this post, please ask.

Thanks,

With the new ability to hold A to skip goal reviews and such, did our policy on that change or remain the same?



Focus on winning too much
