Hello EBL Teams,
Back to work
EisFrei got out of hospital and will be back for developement in a few days. I told him to take it easy and relax a bit before giving 120% for the EBL.
Everyone is glad you are doing well!

We had some chats in the owners lounge.
Perhaps these information will help you to understand the EBL even better.
Like football or hockey, The best teams of the season get the chance to be in the playoffs and challenge each other for the crown. Season champion is good but playoff title is the best.
At the moment: 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 players upload and the average will be calculated and compared with the rest of the teams in your division. The best team will receive 5 points, the second 2 and the third 1 for the daily upload. The weekly is 15, 6 and 3 and monthly is 50, 20 and 10
Games shall be played based on the daily scoreboard and not by the correct time. So only the date will be given and you can start, if you like to, on the first day but you have to finish at the same hour of the following day.
With the EBL, we create an end for some seconds to meassure your efforts and reward the winner for it. A month is a long time and so it makes much more sense to have a regular team of 32 to 40 members. That is why your mods should draft players in the Players Booth. It is like shopping for players. Create nice team logos. A menu will also be added to describe your team. For example: "Empire of the Pond" We want to rule the EBL and crush every teams that challenges us. The sun never sets in our team because we have players from every spot of this floating rock in space. //// or something like that.
For best results, you need at least 24 players. Three squads with 8 players each. First squad makes the upload on the last day of the last season at first reminder and plays to the last reminder plus 59 minutes the next day. The second squad already made the upload at first reminder the same day and plays until the next day, while the third squad makes the first reminder. And so on. No player will play twice and has at least one day off and will appear on the scoreboard only once every three days but the team will have the best results. At the moment we use the average AP but eisfrei will change the calculation to full Apple for the best 8 players of the team.
Regular player uploads as the reminder says. Pro player switches between a short farming day and a long game day. You decide what type you are.
At least 2 players of a team have to upload their stats which gives small teams a big advantage for average calculation. 8 players are pretty much but we have to find a number of players which is not too high for small teams and not too low for big teams. That is why I want EisFrei to change to total AP because the teams grow bigger and their full effort shall be rewarded and not being reduced by team members who did not do that good.
Have a look at the settings. Since we are playing global, we try to give any player a good time span to upload APs. He / she can set the reminder which fits best for their area. If you change to your timezone, the time will change automatically.
