    Default League Rules and Scoring Methods (NEW OWNERS PLEASE READ!)

    The scoring method explanation was stolen from JS's post in the ABA League. All credit goes to him and avoidingtheclowns, who wrote up the initial explanation.

    Spoiler Spoiler:

    And here is an interactive demo of the system that you can play around with. New owners can use this to get used to the system.

    A Guide to Roster Transactions

    - You cannot have more than twelve players in your roster (except for waiver wire pickups, which we will discuss below)

    - The lineups will be "frozen" at a deadline before each game. This is because the system mirrors the NBA season in that each game will correspond to each real-life NBA game that your players will play.


    For Game 1, the lineups will be frozen at a deadline that is a certain time (I think 24 hours) before the time at which the earliest Game 1 occurs for your players' NBA teams.

    G Chris Paul - Dec 25
    G Deron Williams - Dec 25
    G Travis Diener - Dec 26
    GF Josh Smith - Jan 1
    F Brian Scalabrine - Dec 28
    F Josh McRoberts - Dec 26
    FC Solomon Jones - Dec 26
    FC Pau Gasol - Dec 27
    C Marc Gasol - Dec 29
    F Jeff Pendergraph - Dec 26
    F David West - Dec 26
    G Sarunas Jasikevicius - ???

    The lineup will be frozen sometime on Dec 24, 24 hours before the earliest date your players play their Game 1. This is the game deadline, and any changes you make to your lineup after this deadline passes will not be take effect for that game. It will take effect for the next game.

    Don't worry about knowing exactly when each player plays, because the site will keep telling you when the deadline is for each game. It's a lot simpler than it sounds.

    - At any time in the regular season, you may drop a player from your lineup.

    - At any time in the regular season, you may add a player to your lineup from the free agent pool, as long as you have less than twelve players.

    - Players that are dropped will go onto the waiver wire. How the waiver wire works is that teams will put in claims for the player, and if more than one team is interested, the player will go to the team with the lowest record at the time of the transaction. Players stay on the waiver wire for 48 hours (I think), and after the 48 hours elapses, the player will either go to a team or return to the free agent pool if no team claims him. Waiver wire player additions are the only way you can go over your 12 player limit, and the absolute maximum is 13 players. However, the 13th player in your lineup will be dropped at each game deadline, so make sure you move the player you just picked up off the waiver wire up in your lineup to make sure the player isn't accidentally dropped.

    If you have any questions at all about the system, please feel free to ask me or any of our owners. It really is a lot simpler than it sounds, and you'll pick it up in no time.
