Match Reporter FAQ
« on: November 24, 2007, 09:25:05 pm »
As some of you might already be aware of, we had to delay the 4th season for a few weeks because we completely renewed our system and it was not finished. But now it's finally done (thanks to ramirez) and here's a guide to how things are going to work in SRL 4.

Most importantly, no more posting your own match reports. You will be using our new match reporter to report any played matches. You'll find the reporter by going to http://report.srl.sctfl.net/ or simply clicking the "Post Report" button on Match Report forum. Note that the reporter is disabled until SRL4 officially starts.

A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS

1. You need to be registered on the forums in order to use the reporter.

2. Even though you can see every clan in the list of clans, you are NOT allowed to post fake reports or reports which do not belong to your clan unless you have given permission to do so. Nothing has changed from the last season, if we find out you are posting fake reports or anything of the sort, you will be punished.

3. Pay attention when posting a report. You can still edit your report until (example - both buttons work) its confirmed/voided but just make sure your report is correct in order to avoid any confusion or your match being voided.

4. If you notice any bugs, please report them to either ramirez/DragonSlayer or post them here.

HOW TO USE THE REPORTER?



1. Choose the Home and Away teams. Pay attention to which is the home team and which is the away team as it affects intercontinental points and you have to be both home and away once if you play against same clan twice during one half of free play.

2. Pick the map for the round.

3. Pick the Alpha team.

4. Pick the scores for both teams. IF THERE WAS A FORFEIT, READ THE SPECIAL NOTE ON FORFEIT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST.

5. Choose your and the opponent's players. NOTICE: As our rules state, you are not allowed to use a new player or a new player name until the staff have confirmed your roster change. If your clan is breaking these rules, or keeps breaking them, you might be punished accordingly. 'Other' field is there in case your opponent used a player which isn't in the roster or played with a wrong name.

6. Upload the screenshot on our server using this. Screenshots are mandatory but there might be cases when you don't have a screenshot (eg. forfeits) so it's possible to leave this blank.

7. Add new round(s). You can add more than 3 rounds because we are using the reporter for playoff matches as well but this doesn't mean you are allowed to play more than 3 rounds in free play. So don't.

8. Use this field for any comments you have to say, you can leave it blank as well.

9. When you are done with your report, click this button and an automated topic will be posted on the forums by your forum account.

IN CASE OF FORFEIT...

If your opponent forfeits, you win all the remaining rounds 4-0 by default. If you had more than 4 caps in the round your opponent gave up, you are allowed to keep these caps but only if you can show a screenshot as proof. And even if your opponent had caps (eg. round was 8-5 for you), you can mark their score as 'Forfeit' if you think they didn't have a good reason to forfeit. You can also leave their caps as they were if they had a good reason to go and you want to promote fair play. For the remaining unplayed rounds, mark them like this:



Also note that only mark one round like this if you won the first round.

I hope everyone will have a pleasant season!

"HA?" Farah, use logic thinking. It will help you to go far in life :O

SRL4 = 4th season of SRL.
Him writing 11th season = SCTFL, cause he wrote it initially for SCTFL.

I'm sure you understood this. You were just being a smartass, I guess ;p

Worry not, it's very simple to use. While designing it my goal was that if DS can use it, anyone can use it, and DS even posted a FAQ!
