SCHEDULING / BROADCASTING GAMES GUIDELINES

Post by chrebet1024

Advance Schedule

--MEFL will be Advanced the following days:
Sunday at 10 pm et
Tuesday at 10 pm et
Thursday at 10 pm et
***These advances are HARD advances.  They will NEVER be held up for anybody, including the commishes.  Reason is we want guys to schedule games for right AT ADVANCE so games get done quicker.

*Games are REQUIRED to be started at least 2 hours BEFORE ADVANCE.

*Early advances will happen if all games are completed
*An advance will RARELY be late, so when scheduling games realize that you CAN schedule at 10 pm et of new advance period.
*NO Super Simming


Scheduling Games
--Weekly Match-up Threads will be created for the next set of games at the latest on the day prior to advance, meaning you have plenty of time to post your availability.  Need to be specific in your post, asking "when can you play" is not acceptable.
BE SPECIFIC and nail down a TIME to play ASAP.  This is always the best way to go.  The Commishes will NOT chase down guys to play, if your game doesn't finish by 10 pm et on advance day, we will advance UNLESS COMMISH IS NOTIFIED and arrangements are made.

--Realize this, the NIGHT OF advance and the DAY AFTER advance ARE THE ACTION DAYS.  We want games to happen ASAP.  Very RARELY should games be played on the last day of period.

--The best way to schedule is to DM each other through Groupme, today its easier and more private to just do groupme... we don't need crazies calling each other.

***If you do NOT reply to your DM within 24 hours of the start of the new advance period....then your opponent will play the CPU if he comes to the commish asking for that to happen.  This is of course only if the player requesting the CPU game DID send a text asking to schedule. All AP requests will require a photo.

--Your Reputation will ALSO be factored into who is at fault should a game be in danger of not being played.

Sending Invite
The HOME TEAM is responsible for sending the invite out on the game.  That means they enter the "Game Room" first.  This will eliminate any players having that "feeling" that the guy who HOSTS the game experiences more lag.  

Team Jersey Colors
In every game the home team must wear their colored jerseys and the road team their white Jerseys.  The only exception by default is the COWBOYS in which they wear their Home White and the Road Team must wear their Colored Jersey.
***Of course if the Home Team wants to change it up and wear their White's at home, they MUST Notify the Road team about this so they can be told to wear their Colored Jerseys.

Missed and/or Sim Games

--If at any point in 1 Season you accrued 3 missed and/or Sim games, you will be removed from MEFL.

Twitch / Broadcasting Games

BOTH TEAMS ARE REQUIRED TO BROADCAST THE GAME.

*You MUST have the "Automatically Archive Past Broadcast" box CHECKED on your Twitch Profile for Archiving to work.  Making sure this option is working is MANDATORY!!!

*If there are connectivity issues, the Home Team may drop the broadcast.  Remember though, broadcasting is beneficial to use the "Archiving" or "Highlight" feature Twitch has to call out your opponent if he is breaking the rules.  If there still are connectivity issues, both teams may drop the broadcast, BUT MUST let a commish know you are doing so.

Guidelines
1. Posting Game Start Time on Forum is Optional.  The Game Start Time Section will always be there if guys wanna post, and Playoff Games could be mandatory (based on the season).
--With Twitch, everybody has the option to "Follow" others which will notify you via email when a game is starting.  Use this feature if you'd like to watch live games.  If not, then you always have the archived feature at your disposal.

2. EVERY GAME MUST BE SHARED TO TWITCH.  This responsibility to BROADCAST is up to both teams of every game.  Be careful with the QUALITY SETTING though.  Low or Medium is a good setting to use UNLESS you know you have excellent internet connection in which case you can up it to High or even HD.  It literally takes 20 seconds to do, by hitting the SHARE BUTTON on the controller, and BROADCASTING the game through TWITCH.  If an owner cannot broadcast for some reason, they MUST LET THE COMMISH KNOW VIA TEXT.

3. TITLE your Channel like this:  
Example:  MEFL - chrebet1024 
(League name and username)
Whether its Ustream or Twitch, if you go to the service websites and want to watch a game, searching by Username will always be good enough.  Or simply go to MEFL TV to view games.
*You can always FOLLOW others broadcasts as it will notify you through email when a game goes live.

4. Make Sure you keep your Twitch User Name THE SAME AS YOUR PSN NAME.  If it is taken, then use something similar. 
***Also you will want to UN-CHECK the "Display Comments" box on your PS4 in the share settings.  This will keep you at a full screen while playing.

5. ALL CPU Games MUST be broadcasted, and must have a GAME START TIME ANNOUNCED.

Recording/Archiving Games
Games will be recorded by enabling archiving broadcasting like mentioned above. Recordings will be stored in Past Broadcasts. This will save film for 14 days.

Here is how you do it:


Sharing Pics and Videos
***Share Pics by sending them to your Twitter, then Re-Tweeting to @EliteLeaguesPS4 ***Share Videos by sending them to your Facebook, then Re-Sharing to Elite Leagues Facebook Page, Link found on MEFL TV section of website.

No Rule Change here....just updated and worded differently.

Sunday at 10 pm et

Friday at 6 pm et

--Your Reputation will ALSO be factored into who is at fault should a game be in danger of not being played.

.....Update to the Scheduling guidelines....and this has already been in place...but I updated it to be more specific.

***If you do NOT post your availability within 24 hours of the start of the new advance period....then your opponent will play the CPU if he comes to the commish asking for that to happen.  This is of course only if the player requesting the CPU game DID post on the weekly matchup thread, posting his availability.

UPDATED...we are going to TWITCH ONLY...as per the PM earlier. 

Having past broadcasts archived will be a great tool.

So USTREAM guys...get your Twitch accounts set up and get me you username.

UPDATED

We will now require BOTH TEAMS to BROADCAST EVERY GAME.

Be careful with the "Quality Setting" though.  Medium is usually a good setting...unless you KNOW you have excellent internet connection in which case you can bump up to high.

The archiving feature with Twitch is too good not to use on both sides.

ALSO, implementing this in Season 5 of our last season will be a great time to see if it brings us any connection issues.

Twitch / Broadcasting Games
BOTH TEAMS ARE TO BROADCAST THE GAME.

With the feature of Sharing Games on PS4, we know have the ability to allow all games to be viewable to every team owner in the league.  You MUST USE Twitch, because of the "Archiving Footage" feature.  This will allow us to be able to view "Past Broadcasts" and create highlights.  Serving the purpose to punish guys when the break the rules and use for MEFL Films.

***You also MUST have the "Automatically Archive Past Broadcast" box CHECKED on your Twitch Profile for Archiving to work.


***If there are connectivity issues, the Home Team may drop the broadcast.  Remember though, broadcasting is beneficial to use the "Archiving" or "Highlight" feature Twitch has to call out your opponent if he is breaking the rules.


***If you want to provide video evidence to the commish regarding somebody's gameplay, you must text the commish, and send your Highlight to our Facebook Page (which can be found on our MEFL TV section.)

Guidelines:
1. EVERY GAME MUST HAVE A START TIME POSTED IN THE DEDICATED "GAME START TIME" SECTION.  Now there is NO time requirement on when this Game Start Announcement needs to be made, ONLY that it IS made.  If 2 owners decide to start a game on a seconds notice with out any planning out made, then that's fine, BUT 1 of the owners MUST post that the game is starting RIGHT NOW.  Although this can be done by EITHER owner, it is ultimately up to the ROAD TEAM to make this announcement.
***PLEASE INCLUDE FOLLOWING INFO
1. The 2 teams playing
2. Which Channel it's on
***EXAMPLE
Jets vs Pats
twitch: chrebet1024
***A nice little trick is to INCLUDE your Twitch channel IN YOUR SIGNATURE.  This will allow you to not have to include that info every time.


2. EVERY GAME MUST BE SHARED TO TWITCH.  This responsibility to BROADCAST is up to both teams of every game.  Be careful with the QUALITY SETTING though.  Medium is a good setting to use UNLESS you know you have excellent internet connection in which case you can up it to High or even HD.  It literally takes 20 seconds to do, by hitting the SHARE BUTTON on the controller, and BROADCASTING the game through TWITCH.  If it has been determined that an owner cannot broadcast for a very good reason (connection, where he lives) then the Home Team will have to broadcast that game.  If an owner cannot broadcast for some reason, they MUST LET THE COMMISH KNOW VIA TEXT.
***The lower seed will broadcast the Super Bowl

3. TITLE your Channel like this:  
Example:  MEFL - chrebet1024 
(League name and username)
Whether its Ustream or Twitch, if you go to the service websites and want to watch a game, searching by Username will always be good enough.  Or simply go to MEFL TV to view games.
*You can always FOLLOW others broadcasts as it will notify you through email when a game goes live.

4. Make Sure you keep your Twitch User Name THE SAME AS YOUR PSN NAME.  If it is taken, then use something similar. 
***Also you will want to UN-CHECK the "Display Comments" box on your PS4 in the share settings.  This will keep you at a full screen while playing.

5. ALL CPU Games MUST be broadcasted, and must have a GAME START TIME ANNOUNCED.

Games will be recorded by enabling archiving broadcasting. Recordings will be stored in Past Broadcasts. This will save film for 14 days. Below is a video on how to set this up on your account. This must be done using a browser due to the video format

Just an important note for everyone to remember in the future, while it does not state it in the rules above if you are playing the CPU you MUST broadcast your game regardless.

Are you asking about any rule in particular or just rules in general?  To answer your question CPU games are treated a lot like owner games .

Posting Game Start Times on Forum UPDATED:
