    Season 2 starts on November 26th!

    Additionally, we have some rule changes for this season. The official thread for the rules will be updated shortly with these:
    Rule 1.1.c.
    c. Newly registered teams must have at least 8 players registered in order to be eligible to participate in MKU competitions. Exceptions can be made for teams that have shown to be very reliable. (see section 1.2. New Player Registrations and section 1.4. Player Transfers)

    Rule 1.2.b.
    b. Team representatives are permitted to register new players in their team.


    Rule 1.2.c.
    c. Players may only be registered with one MKU team. Multi-clanning is therefore prohibited

    Rule 1.2.f.
    Removed

    Rule 1.3.a.i.
    i. Teams must be officially registered for MKU and have a minimum of 8 players registered (see section 1.1.) in order to declare participation.

    Rule 1.4.1.b.i.
    i. Team representatives are permitted to make transfer posts for their players if evidence (in form of chat logs) is provided that the player in question agrees with the transfer.

    1.4.4. - Outside of Competition
    i. Players are free to transfer to any team during the off-season.

    Rule 3.1.1.c.
    c. Should a scheduled match coincide with a country’s national or religious holiday or a large event which will affect a team’s ability to play at default time, the team is to contact their division admin and their opponents at least two weeks ahead of time and then to agree on a different time for the match to be played before the season ends.
    I. An event is considered large enough to qualify if a minimum of 4 members from one team or at least 10 members from the community are attending the event.

    Rule 3.1.1.e.v.
    Removed


    Rule 3.2.a, 3.2.b, 3.2.c.
    Rules need to cover both of the 5v5 and 6v6 matches, since 6v6 could become an official size for a division. I am aware that there will be a change about it very soon, but there is also this:
    Also, hard bots should be turned on when a 6v6 match is happening

    3.3.1.a
    a. The host team must provide a host friend code to the opponent at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time.
    i. The opposing team must have at least 1 player add the host FC at least 10 minutes before the scheduled time.
    ii . Violation of either a or a.i. will result in a host flag.

    Rule 3.3.1.b.i, 3.3.1.b.ii, 3.3.1.b.iii
    Keep the same, potentially move to different section in the rules.

    Rule 3.3.1.b.iv.
    iv. In the case a player not from either team joins the room, the host must close the room immediately. The hosting team will not have to wait 30 seconds before joining.

    Rule 3.3.1.b.vi.
    vi. If the host fails to open the room within 5 minutes of the scheduled match time, they will receive a -10 points penalty plus an additional -10 points penalty for every 5 minutes beyond the first in which they still fail to open the room, unless consent is given by the opposition to wait longer. (For example, waiting until 11 minutes past the scheduled time will result in 20 points total.) If the host fails to open the room within 15 minutes of the scheduled match time, the hosting team will automatically forfeit the match.


    Rule 3.2.c., 3.2.d.
    ii. If a team misses 2 or more players in the room after 10 minutes have passed since the room was opened, they will receive a -10 points penalty. Once there is only one player remaining from the said team to join the room, the host must starts the room.

    iii. If a team misses 2 or more players in the room after 15 minutes have passed since the room was opened, they will automatically forfeit the match.

    Rule 3.2.e.
    e. The match is officially considered started as soon as a GP starts or 5 minutes has been passed from the scheduled match time.

    Rule 3.3.2.i., 3.3.2.b.
    Removed

    Your team was the latest team to register, so sadly that means you didn't make it into a division in time. If a team drops out you guys will get to play tho!

    Due to requests by teams, we have made 2 changes to the seedings.

    Sy and RK have now switched spots, making Division 3 a 5v5 division instead of a 6v6 division.

    MTos and FE has also switched places due to having similar skill level and both teams wanting the other division. This forced us to switch cloud and joel as division admins as well.

    More changes may or may not happen, but if you got any division related concerns feel free to ask us!

    3.3.1.a
    a. The host team must provide a host friend code to the opponent at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time.

    Why exactly? I'm not sure how this will benefit anything, but instead just make penalty fishing more common. I'm not sure what was wrong with 10 before, it allows teams to figure out hosts and streamers closer to the match time and also lets people have more time to test their net closer to the match time to get the most optimal host

    GL to all teams this season

    Final Emblem [FE]
    From Final Emblem, we want to express our disconformity with some of the divisions, that just seem to mirror those of the SNL. We find less excitement in playing against the same teams over, and over, and some variety would be nice for once. Instead, in our division, we are getting a glorified SNL bracket with little addition that just seems unbalanced overall.

    Still, we'll still be playing this Season without any problem, we just wanted to voice out the general feeling of the clan.

    As the MT os leader i want to apologize to all FE members. We spoke what we thought we deserved, but never wanted to involve or affect a team, even more when that team resulted to be a clan that is a friend team.

    We still think that MT1 should’ve been put in D2, but whatever.

    So what you're trynna say is the away team doesn't need to add the home teams fc at all and the home team will get a host flag LOL

    Be more clear on your rules please

    What we are saying is that the host has to add anyone who adds from the away team who adds until 10 minutes before the match. in the bold the away team would be the ones receiving the flag.

    We had been doing rules for 3 hours and couldn't figure out a nice way to write this at that moment, but hopefully this clarifies and maybe we'll do some rewriting when we actually pout it into the ruleset today.


    You usually know who you want to have as your host 30 mins ahead, and teams not communicating ahead of matches has been a huge problem in the past so we sadly think this is needed.

    Like specified earlier on the thread, violating a.i would be a host flag for the away team
