Sometimes players must drop out during the season.
IF A PLAYER DROPS OUT WITHOUT REPLACING THEMSELVES, THEY WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR ANY
PAYOUTS/EARNINGS AS WELL AS A BAN ON PARTICIPATION FOR A LENGTH OF TIME AS DETERMINED BY THE LEAGUE ADMINISTRATORS.
Players are financially responsible for all league fees including matches that are forfeited. These fees will be deducted from any earnings. In the event that earnings are insufficient to compensate for missing league fees, the outstanding balance must be paid to Maximum Darts Inc.
Players with a negative account balance will be restricted from participation until balance is paid.
The best solution is for the player to find a replacement player that fits within the TEAM CAP. The new player will then be responsible for the remaining league fees and both players will be awarded any prizes proportionally based on the number of games played.
If an entire team drops out of a league without replacing themselves, the impact to the other teams in the league is significant.
In this situation, the offending team will not qualify for any payouts/earnings as well as a ban on participation.
In the event of the loss of an entire team, the league admins will take one of two actions
depending on the particular league format and the number of matches played by the offending team:
1) Teams that were involved in matches played will receive credit for the games played and the league point(s) for the match(es) played.
The teams that did not play the offending team will receive credit for the games that would have been played and wins based on the teams win % at end of league.
2) Deletion of all matches scheduled with the offending team. In this scenario, league fees will be
refunded to the teams that already played the offending team. No wins or credit for games played will be awarded.
