100% flame inside in 3, 2, 1...
we're here to clarify some rules about APLs today; so far the was a conflict in the war between re and oD which is very important for playoffs stuff.
The problem is basically "When a player is allowed to play?". Rules are not so clear on that part, some of them ovverides and/or say the opposite of other rules, so after some talks and investigation on previous similar case this is the answer and, we hope, a clarification about it.
In this chapter
you can find the part of rules we're goinh to clarify, let's examine the most important points:
- A clan can use players during a match who are shown on their Allowed Players List and have not played in the same cup for another clan. Using a player who is on your APL, but is not allowed to play (f.e they played for another clan in the same week) will result in a Red Card and match forfeit.
- All other players can only play after they're added to the Allowed Player List having fulfilled the criteria in the table below.
- A player must be on the Allowed Playerlist (APL) before being allowed to play a match. That means, a player must be added to your clan roster as well as to the APL before the official starting time, the scheduled start time of the match shown on the wid page. If a player plays who isn't on the APL the clan will receive a Red card and a forfeit loss. When a player would have been allowed to be added to the APL (thus would have no problem going through the new member procedure) the clan will only get a Yellow card and the match result will not be changed.
The first 2 points make clear statement, you can play for a clan ONLY if you're on their roster and in their APL; if you broke one of them you get a forfeit loss and a red card.
The third point go deeper inside it and clearly say that a player must be added to the apl, and obviusly to the roster, before match time otherwise you will receive a forfeit loss and a red card but... It makes and exception that reduce the penalty to a yellow card if he would have been allowed to be added to the APL.
Can i play with a player be added to the APL after he played a war?
Yes, if he can go through the criteria showed in the table on rules page.
What happens if he was able to play?
You get a yellow card and the result won't change.
What happens if he wasn't able to play?
You get a red card and the result will change in a forfeit loss.
These informations are valid for the current season of all UT2004's cups. Those rules will be probably updated next season to avoid this sort of freelance.
Going back to re vs oD match and also GD vs sB (iTDM match) results won't change, re and GD will get a yellow card.
Thanks for waiting and reading.
