ARAM

League Manager: Vibrose

FORMAT OF PLAY

Basics: We play every Wedensday during the season at 7PM CT sharp. Players have committed during sign-up to attend each week of the season unless they have shared that they need a week off as a β€œbye”. Each game night, players will compete in 4 ARAM games with the same teammates. Expect the evening to last until about 9:00PM CT.

Teams: Teams will be generated randomly each week

Matchmaking: Teams will queue up in ARAM matchmaking and play against randoms. Be on your best behavior!

Prizes: Each season may have a series of prizes attached for things like good sportsmanship, most pentakills, least amount of executions, etc. The categories are meant to encourage fun and not cutthroat competition. To qualify for prizes you must be present for 90% of games, fill out the last week survey feedback form during the open feedback window, and not have any no-call/no-shows.

⏰ TIMING OF THE EVENING ⏰

Day of: The moderation team will check in with each player the day of to ensure attendance. We expect players to confirm their attendance by replying to the message.

7:00PM CT: All players MUST be in the ARAM Lobby VC by 7PM CT sharp. Announcements begin right at 7CT so early attendance is highly encouraged.

7:05PM CT: Teams are posted and gameplay begins.

Notify if Late: If you will be up to 10 minutes late, we need a minimum one hour's notice so you can still be included in the weekly roster. If you do not notify us, and you are late, a sub will be found for you promptly at 7PM CT. If a sub is confirmed before you arrive, you will forfeit your spot for the evening as the sub has given up their time to help get the night started for everyone else.

Poro Points

A fun and chaotic way of climbing the leaderboard! Instead of progressing by winrate and K/D/A, players will progress by doing ARAM-centric tasks such as feeding poros or getting executions.

  • 🍰 Having at least 1 poro explode in the game! Some tips:

    • It takes 10 Poro-Snax to make a single poro explode

PLAYER RESPONSIBILITIES

Communicate Byes and Late: During sign up, each player has shared the days they cannot make it. However, life happens!. If an additional day appears that you cannot make the league, please try to post in πŸ₯Άbyes-and-late at least a full 24 hours in advance. This gives the mods time to actively plan for everyone else's evening to run smoothly.

No-Call/No-Show: If you are a no-call no-show more than once, we will assume you are no longer interested in playing for the season and you will be removed from the roster.

Mid-Season: If you decide to leave the league mid season (unless speaking with a mod prior), you will not be invited back to play in the following season.

⚽ SPORTSMANSHIP 🏈

Surrendering: Play with the attitude that every game is winnable. Sometimes you end up winning even the hardest of games. Please do not forfeit to keep your perfect KDA. On the flip side, please do not farm executions when winning. Play each game to its appropriate extent and with honor! If your team unanimously feels that there is no possible path to winning after 25 minutes of play, you may forfeit ONLY IF all 5 teammates have confidently agreed in advance of /surrender, verbally. If even one player feels they can still win, the rest of the team must rally behind that player and try their best to pull out a win.

Positive Attitude: League is known to be toxic, and that is NOT who we are! β€œBad Mannering” is 100% against what we are trying to build for our community. Excess pings, all chat bragging, repeat requests to surrender, mastery emotes after a kill, question marks, and ggez are all examples of having bad manners in game. Friendly banter is encouraged but read the room and make sure you're creating a fun environment that everyone can participate in. If you feel someone on your or the opposite team is engaging in poor sportsmanship that negatively affects the community environment, please open a ticket so the moderation team can address it. We will keep your name anonymous and deal with issues on a case by case basis.

Balancing: Poro Points may be adjusted mid season for balancing reasons. Some examples of adjustments we may make: A cap on receiving execution points or changing the points awarded for winning the game. Points will be updated retroactively if this does happen, which could cause shifts in the leaderboard.

Tribunal: To address infractions to general sportsmanship, and to handle serious concerns as shared by the leadership team, or fellow players, we have implemented a 3 strike system. After the first infraction, the player will receive a typed message with a direct explanation of the infraction. After the second, the division lead will host a restorative conversation with the player 1:1 over voice chat to address the issue at hand. After the third, player will be disinvited to the league season and will be up for a potential server-wide ban. For especially egregious concerns, we reserve the right to expediate this process.

If there are any questions on any of the above, please reach out to an admin for clarification!
