    LA Rulings - December 3rd, 2019

    Case 1 (Freddy Mercury Institute vs. Rakish): 

    FMI contacted League Administration about Rakish not responding to communication, nor showing up for their games at the default time. FMI contacted Rakish hours ahead and the captain of Rakish later admitted to making a mistake by not staying on top of the schedule. LA has come to the conclusion that Rakish failed to keep their end of what's considered good communication and as such rule 10.8 would be pertinent to this case. LA has thusly decided to award FMI with WO's from both matches.

    Quote

    “10.8 Late Game Appearances”

    • If a team is more than 15 minutes late to a game without prior notice, the opposing team must contact LA as soon as possible. The message should have a proof of the opposing team “not showing up” attached. Depending on the reason(s) for the delay LA may decide to allocate WOs.

     

    Case 2 (Virtuoso vs. Kesaloma):

    Late in the second game (less than a minute remaining in the 3rd) between Virtuoso and Kesaloma, there was a disconnect prior to the center ice faceoff taking place after Kesäloma scored and was only one goal behind. Neither team managed to stop play and the game ended with a CPU player on the ice for the last minute. Virtuoso suggested to Kesaloma to play the game from the start because of the disconnect. Kesaloma didn't agree with that and instead asked League Administration for technical defeats, due to Virtuoso having connection issues earlier in the matchup and Kesaloma suspecting an intentional disconnect when they had good momentum in the game and believed they would tie the game up. LA could not confirm that the disconnect would have been intentional and thus could not give out technical defeats and told Kesaloma to either agree to replay the game or the number of seconds that were remaining at the time of the disconnect. At this point, Virtuoso was reluctant to replay the games though and while LA believes they should honor their own suggestion, LA couldn't force Virtuoso to do so as per the current ruleset. 

    As such, when teams can't agree on how to resolve things, rule 11.11 dictates that games should be continued from the point of the disconnect, thusly LA rules that the two teams shall play out the remainder of the game from where it left off.

    Quote

    “11.11 Player Disconnects”

    • The remaining time in the disconnected game will be played in a new game. Teams are advised to wait for the clock to run down to the time when the original game ended and complete it regularly. Alternatively, they can also use a different procedure of their own if both parties agree. Afterwards, both teams record all stats from this second portion of the original game.

    Additionally, we have now amended rule 11.11 with the following:

    Quote
    • Furthermore, in the event that a disconnect dispute reaches LA we would like to remind teams that they should be aware when suggesting alternative solutions to the rulebook’s default, as LA may hold them accountable even if they rescind the offer later on. 

     

    Case 3 (EBR eSports Official vs. Syntax Error): 

    EBR eSports Official contacted the League Administration about Syntax Error not showing up at the agreed time, instead, they showed up one hour late when they finally realized they were due to play. The issue was caused by miscommunication by the Syntax Error captain. LA has come to the conclusion that both teams agreed to play on Friday 29.11 at 20 CET - as such rule 10.8 would be pertinent to this case. LA has thusly decided to award EBR eSports Official with WO's from both matches.

    Case 4 (Alliance HT): 

    Alliance HT has been using a player with more than one registered NHLGamer account in multiple games this season (namely, Oo_hazzey_oO / AntiHoma). Additionally, the captain (MAYZIIX) was fully aware of this and still continued to use said player. This is in direct violation of rules 2.4 & 6.1, as shown below. 

    Quote

    “2.4 Number of Accounts”

    • No player may have more than one account on NHLGamer.com. This account can be used for playing on different consoles and in different leagues/tournaments simultaneously as long as the player has their PSN ID / Gamertag set up on their NHLGamer profile. 

    “6.1 General”

    • All managers (C and A) are representatives of the entire team, as such they are responsible for: 
    • Scheduling games 
    • Ensuring their team always complies with league/tournament rules  
    • Any communication with other managers and League Administration in the name of their team 
    • Ensuring the team finishes all its games 

    After hearing the explanation for the new account, the whole ordeal seems very unnecessary. Reportedly Oo_hazzey_oO played for Nearbird Fighters in the RCL 5 season and didn't want to use the same account to join Alliance HT in ECL 9, so a new account was created for this purpose. To our knowledge, the player has neither played RCL since joining Alliance HT with the second account and also hasn't played ECL with another account. In other words, had the player just used his regular account to join Alliance HT in the first place - there would be no problem here. The aforementioned circumstance, combined with captain MAYZIIX assuming liability for this situation has been taken into account as a mitigating factor when making the decision.

    After careful consideration, LA has decided to ban Alliance HTs captain MAYZIIX and Oo_hazzey_oO for the rest of the season (ECL 9 & RCL 5), as well as institute a ban on them being the captain of a team until the end of NHL 20. Furthermore, MAYZIIX will be stepping down from the admin role within the RCL. Additionally, any games involving Oo_hazzey_oO / AntiHoma will remain and not be removed from either respective league. 

    Due to this case, however, LA would like to add the following rule in order to cover scenarios like this in the future:

    “8.3 Void Games”

    • If a game is played where one (or more) of the players involved was deemed to not be legal, then LA reserves the right to potentially void all games played with the said player(s), and award WOs victories to the non-offending team.

     

    The rulebook has been updated with the above-mentioned rule amendments. We would like to remind the ECL Pro teams that the transfer deadline is coming up on Thursday, December 5th.

     

    Despite this disappointing news, NHLGamer would like to thank MAYZIIX for all of his hard work with the RCL during the years.

    We are looking for some new staff members for RCL roles. Good communication skills in English and Russian are important. Please contact @Kenu via private message if you're interested.

    Welcome to ECL Lite, where a team calling themselves "eSports Official" is incredibly eager to get WO wins and refuse to find a new date to play 2 games even though we have a full week available. Maybe I expect too much.

    Come on, man. You agreed to play at a set time and didn't show up.
