§ 1.1a Legend Items at War Pages
yellow sphere (next to Team A e.g) means that Team A hasn't accepted anything. Same for Team B.
A green sphere means accepting the match. So for example if Team A accepts the match, there will be a
green sphere next to Team A. Same for Team B.
Yellow sphere will also mean that the match has been accepted by both teams. (There will be 2 yellow spheres for both teams once they have accepted).
Once the match results have been uploaded by for example Team A, the sphere will become
green next to Team A. Same will happen to the other sphere of the opponent, once it accepts.
If a match is refused by a team, the sphere will become
red next to that team which refused.
In the footer of the table and Wartable (WARs - matches one by one), you can also find these signs which are explained by one or two keywords.
§ 1.2 Rating of Table
1 / 0 / 0
4 / 0 / 0
400 : 10
The table is evaluated with the following priorities:1. The Number of Collected Points = "Points"2. The Number of Wars won = "Won Wars" (Green Values)3. The Number of Rounds won = "Won Rounds" (Green Values) 4. The Number of Collected Tickets = "Own Tickets"
So using the example above, 400:10 means - The Number of Tickets collected (400) and The Number of Tickets lost (10).
The number of matches resulted in draw are the yellow values in "WARs". But they are non-important in the evaluation.
TL is ahead of FG cause of having more rounds won! NOT because of having more matches drawn!
Here is another example:
Pas42 and TnS had the same points, Wars won, rounds won, but pas42 was leading with collected tickets!
If there was a final result like this (everything tied), at this point, we wouldn't have any rules stating the appropriate action/procedure, so it would be under discussion.
At this situation, the table ranking seems to be incorrect as well cause bmc has higher number of "tickets lost" than TnS has. TnS should be ahead of BmC. Legend items from left to the right
# means the current Rank of the Team
Flag = The Flag set by the Team. EU flag is set if there are players from different countries in the same team.
Clan = The Team-Name
Dots = Showing the Matches against other Teams. The colors will be explained later.
First Number = The total amount of Wars the Team has played so far.
First colored Numbers = Shows how many Wars got won (green), lost (red) or were equal (yellow)
Next grey Number = The total amount of Round the Team has played so far.
Second colored Numbers = Shows how many Rounds got won (green), lost (red) or were equal (yellow)
Tickets = Show how many Tickets your own team (left Tickets) and how many Tickets the enemy teams (right Tickets) have collected so far.
Points = The collected Points so farThe colored dots
A Green sphere means a won match. A match is considered won if Team A achieves 3:2, 4:1, 4:2, or 4:0 against Team B. So that means Team A won the match.
A Yellow sphere means a drawn match. A match is considered drawn if Team A or B achieve 2:2 or 3:3 result against each other.
A Red sphere means a lost match, a match is considered lost if Team B achieves 2:3, 1:4, 2:4, 0:4 against Team A. So that means Team B lost the match.
However, it matters how many points the teams can get against each other even if it's a lost or won match.
A grey sphere means that the match is not prepared yet. (Unfortunately, the table was a bit bugged at this time, so some matches were shown wrong!)
A white sphere means that it's being prepared and set.

§ 4.0 War Server Choice
First of all, War Servers have to meet all the compulsory requirements stated in Server Settings. If a war server doesn't meet even one of these compulsory requirements, the whole match has to be played on the War server of the other team or on a neutral one.
Neutral Servers: If the above mentioned case happens, or one team thinks a neutral server is more fair pingwise for the upcoming League match, it can ask for a neutral server.
You have to set / state in War-Page (Comments) if you want to play on neutral server. Both teams have the right to ask for one specific neutral Server.
There are six kinds of possibilities regarding War Server choice:
1) Both Maps on War Server of Team A
2) Both Maps on War Server of Team B
3) 50/50 - It means the Map of Team A will be played on War Server of Team A, Map of Team B on War Server of Team B
4) 50/50 with "Mapswitch" which means Team A map on Team B War server and Team B map on Team A War server
5) "50/50 with two neutral servers" so that means Team A chooses a neutral server to play their map on, and Team B chooses a neutral server to play their map on
6) One Neutral Server for both maps. Number 6 is the standard Choice, so if both clans can`t decide totally, The match will be played on a neutral Server.
All options have to be at least considered by both teams if there is a disagreement! If the teams aren`t able to agree on a neutral server, the neutral server will be decided by the admins by considering the Server Rankings from both Teams and their say is final. Take a look at § 4.1 related to Server Ranking, however both teams are always free to talk to each other about which War server(s) they will use for both Maps.
§ 4.1 Neutral Rule - Server Ranking
Every Teamleader has to give a Server Ranking before the next Season begins. After the start of the season you aren`t allowed to change it anymore. You have to set minimum 4, maximum 5 War Servers in your Ranking, ordered from favorite War server (1) to worst War server (5). Every Clan has then his own ranking. As far as Teams aren`t able to choose a War Server on their own, the admins will decide this regarding to their Rankings. It will be choosen by the best place in ranking.
Team A Ranking: 1) Germany 2) Hungarian 3) France 4) UK-Server
Team B Ranking: 1) Hungarian 2) France 3) Germany 4) UK-Server.
As result, the Game will be played on the hungarian War server since this is the one which fits for both clans the best.
Exceptions for Changing during Season:
- War Server goes offline and it is the only one located in the ranked Country
- New War Servers located in new Countries getting involved to the League
- Your Team has got a new War Server located in a different country as it was before.
All Changes have to be made in time and by announcing it to the Admins!
§ 4.2 War Server Crash
If a War Server crashes during a War, the following rules have to be followed If both teams can't find a solution by themselves:
- 75% or more (15 Minutes or more) of a Game is over, the Round ends with the Tickets at the Time of War Server Crash.
- Less then 75% of a game is over, the Round has to be replayed completely. Both Options have to be proven by Screenshots of the score table + the tickets at the Time of the Server Crash. If the necessary Screenshot missing, a protest has to be opened.

§ 5.4a Amount of Players
The amount of players is allowed to be increased/decreased if both Teams agree seperated for each Map. If one Team does not accept, the Player Number set at the War Page (Comments) counts. Switching the Amount of Players within one Map is not allowed.

Spectators / Casters are allowed if both Teams agree. If one Team doesn`t accept, Spectators / Casters / Recording are forbidden.

§ 5.4c Player gets disconnected / has timed Connection Problems
If a Player gets disconnected the game has to be paused. From time to time, issue unpause/pause so that the War server doesn`t crash. As soon as the Player is back and both Teams agree, the game is allowed to be unpaused.
§ 5.4d Player isn`t able to play anymore

If one Team isn`t able to replace the player, the match has to be played with the Player Number entered in War Page (Comments). The Round in which the player disconnected has to be played until the end with the player number accepted by both before war.
Example: Team A & Team B set the Player Number 7vs7 in the War page (Comments). Before the War, they both agree to play the first map with 7vs7, second with 8vs8. Suddenly at the second map, first round Team B loses one Player. The first round has to be played 8vs7 or enemy accepts to play it 7vs7 directly. Second round has to be played then with the Player Number from the War Page (Comments), so 7vs7.

If a Team issues restarts without agreeing with the other team, the Match can be suspended. Also bad and/or unfair behavior could result in a suspension / punishment.

If the Admins then decide against the refute, both Teams have to accept the final Decision.
§ 5.7 Defwins
Admins are allowed to give Defwins to a Team if neccessary. Such a case can come up, if one of the Teams doesn't show up to a league war in time and doesn't react to the other Team. Therefore, the Team, which is waiting has to open a Protest topic. If Admins decide to give them a Defwin, the match will be counted as 4:0 with 1 Ticket for each round. However, the first option of the Teams should be talking to each other in order to avoid defwin.
