The transfer period will open in between each season, and also 1 week during half-season.
Free-Agents are free to reinforce a club anytime but Players will have to wait until transfer periods to open.
Free agents are not authorized to play in official games, they have to be registred in a club.
All transfers and status change (back to Free-Agent) have to be reported by captains in the #transfer-news discord channel.
Also players cannot play for different clubs in the same competition at the same time.
If a custom player is caught above limitations in an official game :
(These sanctions apply anywhere from 1cm mistakes to players playing out of their native position).
The offended team can ask for imediate replay ONLY. Because once captains have agreed on the results, they are validated definetively. Captains please inform your opponents if you are checking for players above limitations, and don't forget to validate results with them before you finish the matchday.
This replay rule applies to report of over limit AI keepers as well.
Individual sanctions :
1st warning = Player suspension (1 official matchday : home and away)
2nd warning = Player suspension (3 official matchday : home and away)
If you have any question about the BAL tutorial, please ask Admins or Staff members on Discord. Also captains should ask their players to share screenshots of their BAL to prevent mistakes. In addition to sanctions, if a player or a team seems dishonest (abused capacities in any type of game (official, friendly or mixed) but also about transfer rules, players and captains can recieve after warnings up to a definitive suspension.
IN CASE OF DISCONNECTION
In case of 1 or more disconnections during an official game, the game can go up to it's term.
No restart is mandatory. But if the game just started and no goals have been scored yet, captains can agree for a fair restart.
In case of a disconnection, the AI is part of the game. If the AI scores or assists, the goals are validated.
But no AI player is authorized to take free-kicks. If the AI takes a free-kick (direct shoot, pass, corner...) the goal will be invalidated. You need to change shooter so the AI doesn't take free-kicks.
In case the human keeper disconects, captains will have to restart a game with remaining time left to play and adding up the goals which have been scored in the final result.
IF A TEAM DROPS OUT
All results of this team become a default loss (0-1)
If a team drops out during the season, as this has huge consequences on other teams and on the organisation, the club and it's captains will recieve a 1 season suspension in all WAPES competitions.
The captains and the players from the suspended club, can still join other clubs to continue playing.
If the same suspended team want's to reform under a new name, they will have to be composed with at least 50% of new players, and have new captains.
Always keep open discussion with opponent captain. Most problems can be solved this way. If you can't find a solution with your opponents, you may contact admins by sending us a report sheet (click to open).
Remember, we expect all captains to deal with situations respectfully like honorable gentlemen.
We are a community before a competition, this is a game for which we need eachother to play <3.
