    English Rules - As of April 27, 2013.

    Post by EirikN on Thu Jun 14, 2012 4:26 pm

    General Rule: "Any clan or player that tries to manipulate rules may suffer consequences at the staff's discretion."

    I. Registration

    a. Players registering must register with an IP address of their very own and not with any other player participating in the IL.
    b. Players may only register for one team.
    c. Only main clans are allowed to register for the league. Sub-clans and communities are prohibited from joining.
    d. Regardless of whether a player uses a friend code or not, they must post the friend codes that belong to their wii(s) and only use these codes for league events.
    e. Players are allowed to only play for the team they have signed up for.
    f. If you are not apart of a main clan you are not allowed to play for a team unless if you are trialing for x clan or if it is a subclan that you are a member of

    h. Registrations made after 11:59pm GMT Saturday will not be able to play for that week's match.
    h. Transfers may be done 4 weeks after their last transfer/registration.
    i. However, those who transfer after a week's originally scheduled war time will not be able to participate in that war if the war is rescheduled to a later date/time (post-Sunday) rather than a previous date/time. (They are considered a part of the team they were registered for until all matches at that time are completed)
    j. If an unregistered player is caught playing for a clan, that player will lose their points or receive -100 chosen at staff discretion.

    II. Mii Names

    a. Clan tags must be placed clearly at the beginning or end of a mii name, separated in some sort of fashion.
    b. Tags must be similar to those being used by other clanmates.
    c. Names being used by one may not be that of another registered name from the clan he/she is in or the clan they are playing.
    d. Any of the above rules broken result in a -10 penalty.

    III. War Structure

    a. The default war size is 5v5; however, war sizes are to be determined ultimately by the teams playing if both parties agree to a size.
    b. Teams with less than 5 players and unable to agree to a war size must go handicapped or reschedule (on the opponent's consent).
    c. Gentlemen's agreements are not allowed. Only players who have correctly registered for their clan with the right FCs are allowed to play. (Even if they happen, they will not be accepted so don't let your opponents deceive you)
    Note: This does not include conditionals and hostin agreements
    d. War duration is to last for 3 Grand Prixes.
    e. Courses may not be selected more than once per clan war unless they are picked off of a random selection.
    f. Players may not use the following glitches:

    - DK Jungle Parkway
    - Mario Circuit
    - Maple Treeway
    - Mushroom Gorge

    - Rainbow Road
    - Wario's Gold Mine
    g. Those glitching will incur a -50 penalty for each person and every action of glitching they do.
    h. Repeating tracks is not allowed and will incur a -15 penalty on the team with a player repeating a track (that is not chosen by a selection of a random course).

    IV. Disconnections, Player Compensation

    a. Hosts must disconnect after each race a person disconnects in unless they have disconnected more than two times and/or if there is consent to continue.
    b. Hosts must disconnect if there are 9 people on the voting screen unless there is consent to continue.
    c. Players receive +15 if they disconnect within the first two races (assuming play is continued) if they do not have more points with a picture provided. Otherwise, they retain whatever points they had and gain +3 per every race they miss. This does not include the race they disconnected on.
    d. If all participating racers appear on the results screen, the race counts (with the exception of rule e. & f.)

    Note: For any lag penalty to be implemented, you must show recordings from 2 or more perspectives.

    XIII. Texture hacks, model hacks & custom tracks

    XIV. ISO's
    a. One can not use an ISO that is foreign to their region. If one is caught using a foreign ISO, they will incur a 30 point penalty.

    XV. Conditional participation

    a. Streaming or recording startup can be done with a handheld camera and must show footage until the room starts without disconnections. Streaming can also be done with a capture card but the entire gameplay must be included with it.
    b. If opponents request it, conditional players must record or stream the restarting of their Wii twice while showing the SD Card slot empty on the Wii.
    b.i. After the restarts, the recording/stream must be including the Wii menu, disc channel, game loading sequence, and themselves joining the room in one unedited sequence. This must be done before the commencement of any room and upon joining a room following a disconnection unless the opponent does not require it.
    b.ii. Conditional players can also make a mii by request to prove that the stream is not pre-recorded when streaming start-up with a capture card. If said player does so, they will not need to stream/record the entire gameplay.
    c. Should players use any non-official/3rd party disc loader that requires the use of their SD Card, they must do one of the following in order to fulfill their requirements for conditional participation. (Opponents can choose which one)
    c.i. Said players may record and/or stream with their hand-held camera the loading of their non-official/3rd party disc loader with the SD Card slot full in the Wii. Once done, they can show the removal of the SD Card and then show any options for ocarina set as OFF. They must then proceed with the rest of the normal recording/streaming rules all the way up until they join the room and when the room begins.
    c.ii. Said players may record and/or stream with their camera the loading of their non-official/3rd party disc loaders with the Ocarina option set to ON. Afterwards, an error message of some sort should come up saying that codes were not found on the SD card and should proceed normally with the rest of the rules of conditional participation applying up until they join the room and the room begins.
    d. Concerning USB Loader GX mainly for conditionnal:

    1. Starting the USB Loader GX
    2. Go to the game boot screen
    3. Go to Game Settings (STEP 1)
    4. Go to Load Settings (STEP 2)
    5. Turn Ocarina ON (STEP 3)
    6. Press SAVE (STEP 4)
    7. Press OK (STEP 5)
    8. Press BACK (STEP 6)
    9. Press BACK again (STEP 7)
    10. Start game (STEP Cool
    11. Press CONTINUE (FINAL STEP!)

    Step by Step: *here*

    Note: This being streamed, it's highly suggested to ask the user to do something random (such as moving the cursor to some points or going to a random menu) to check it isn't a video pre-recorded since software like XSplit allows to stream video.
    e. Players on conditional participation must, at the very least, ask the opposition whether they care to see the conditional or not.
    f. Players must record, upload and share links to their entire game play within the result thread no later than 72hrs after a wars completion and keep their videos uploaded for a minimum of 2 weeks, unless proof is presented to support that rules a. / b. / c. were followed.

    XVI. Trolling

    Visit here for more information.

    Any of the above rules broken without a penalty described with them will have a penalty decided on by the appropriate party (division admin, adviser group etc.)
    Also, it's up to the Division Admin how the rules are used.
    Conditionalerrors, penaltys and other stuff like this have a deadline of 72 hours after the war got played.
