Honorary members:

Baka & Laika

die Gründer der ProLeague
Gegründet wurde die Liga im September 2011 unter dem Namen FIFA Allstar League von Baka und lief zuerst in Zusammenarbeit mit einer FIFA 1on1 Transferliga. Im September 2013 war der Ansturm und das Interesse an einer Liga dertart groß, dass sich eine eigene Pro Club Liga realisieren ließ. Der Name fiel auf: PROLEAGUE und wurde fortan von Baka & Laika geführt. Im März 2014 verabschiedeten sich die beiden Gründer der ProLeague aus der administrativen Arbeit der Liga und überließen von nun an einem 6 Köpfigen Team der Pro Club Community die Zukunft der Liga. Wir Danken Baka und Laika, dass Sie solch ein tolles Projekt gestartet haben und auch den Mut hatten es in fremde Hände zu legen.

timmortal

lange Zeit Ligaleiter der 2. Liga
timmortal war einer der 6 Köpfe die nach dem Abgang von Baka und Laika die Zügel der ProLeague übernommen und zukunftsweisend mitgestaltet hat.
Zu seinen Aufgaben zählte, in der einjährigen Zeit bei der ProLeague, die Betreuung der 2. Liga und später auch der Erstkontakt zur iFVPA.
timmortal verließ uns zum Ende FIFA 15 in Richtung ProClubs.de, wir wünschen im viel Erfolg und Danken ihm für seine Zuverlässigkeit und stets souveränen Einsatz.

AriGold

das Allroundtalent im Team und Außenminister zugleich
AriGold war ebenfalls einer der 6 Köpfe die nach dem Abgang von Baka und Laika Verantwortung übernommen hat um die ProLeague am Leben zu erhalten. Nach seinem Abgang hat das Team einen Alleskönner verloren der bei einem Problem stets den kühlen Kopf behalten hat und immer eine Lösung parat hatte. AriPedia war ebenfalls in der Entscheidungsphase der neuen Seite eingebunden in welche Richtung es gehen soll, was benötigt wird und in einige Designfragen involviert. Zu seinen Aufgaben zählte die technische Koordination der Homepage und der Erstkontakt zur EVPA und iFVPA. AriGold danken wir für seinen großen Einsatz in und um die ProLeague herum und wünschen alles Gute bei zukünftigen Projekten.

2.2. Head-Admins: The ProLeague is led by Head-Admins. The Head-Admins are separately responsible for the areas of Game Operations, Technology, and Communication. In these areas, the Head-Admins are supported by additional Admins (Area Managers) and Helpers/Staff. Detailed responsibilities can be found in the organizational chart: [LINK FOLLOWS]


2.3. Administrators / Area Managers: Administrators oversee the operation of the area assigned to them (e.g., League / Cup). Depending on the area of responsibility, Admins have access to various functionalities of the admin panel.

2.4. Helpers/Staff: Within the editorial team, Helpers/Staff are utilized for content creation. Their responsibility and scope of work are determined in consultation with the respective responsible administrators.

2.6. Principles: The ProLeague administration acts according to the principles of Proportionality, Confidentiality, and Objectivity.

2.6.1. Proportionality: The administration must act and decide in accordance with the principle of proportionality in its actions and decisions, particularly those that can be made at the discretion under this rulebook. Specifically, actions and decisions of the administration must:

  • be purpose-bound based on a legitimate basis,
  • be suitable for achieving the purpose,
  • be the mildest of all purpose-achieving actions/decisions (Necessity),
  • be appropriate in terms of proportionality of action/decision and its potential interference in the area of third parties.

2.6.2. Confidentiality: The administration is bound to confidentiality. Administration meetings are always to be handled sensitively, and content must not be disclosed to third parties. Proven breaches may, at the discretion of the administration, lead to immediate exclusion from the admin team.

2.6.3. Objectivity: The interest of the ProLeague always takes precedence over the interest of individual administrators. Administrators affected by the content of facts are to be excluded from decisions (this applies, for example, when it comes to a decision about a team or its players, for which an admin also plays).

4.2.2. Overorganizations: Teams of the same overorganization are not allowed to play in the same league. If a team from an organization is promoted or relegated to a league where another team of the same organization plays or to which it has promoted or relegated itself, this leads to the forced relegation of the team that was in the lower league in the previous season. An exception exists in the lowest ProLeague league: Here, two teams of the same overorganization can compete, provided that this is a consequence of relegation. This regulation is subject to review and may be decided differently by the admin team in individual cases.

4.2.3. Organization Change: If a team wants to leave an overorganization to avoid violating § 4.2.2., this must be communicated to the administration at the beginning of the season. At the same time, it is mandatory that basic information of the team (such as team logo and name) is clearly changed.

4.2.4. Distortion of Competition: Only the team playing in the higher league can participate in tournaments per overorganization. This applies to the national cup, SPL, and HoF.

4.3.2. A player may play exclusively for the same club in all other leagues as in the ProLeague Championship.

13.5. Ranking: All rankings explained below are available on the official Discord.

13.5.1. Community Ranking

13.5.1.1. The Community Ranking is used to evaluate the performance of each participating league and its teams in the Club Tournaments - IPCC Champions League and IPCC Europa League. The ranking depends on the so-called "Two-Season Average Coefficient" (hereinafter also referred to as "Coefficient"), which is determined by the administration for each league at the end of a season based on the previous two seasons. The league with the highest coefficient ranks first, followed by the league with the second highest coefficient, and so on. In case multiple leagues have the same coefficient, the team with the higher coefficient in the most recent season is ranked higher.

13.5.1.2. Calculation of the "Two-Season Average Coefficient"

  • The "Two-Season Average Coefficient" is calculated according to the following formula: (Coefficient of the last season + Coefficient of the season before last) / 2.
  • The coefficient per season is calculated as the sum of all points earned by the teams of the respective league, divided by the total number of teams representing the respective league in the IPCC Champions League and IPCC Europa League in the season to be evaluated. The points for the Europa League results of the respective league are multiplied by 0.75.
  • Point System:
    • Each team receives three points for a win, one point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss.
    • Teams that reach the Round of 16, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Finals, or win the IPCC Champions League or IPCC Europa League receive additional points for reaching the respective knockout round: 0.5 points for reaching the Round of 16 (qualification from the group stage), 1 additional point for reaching the Quarterfinals, 1.5 additional points for reaching the Semifinals, and another 2 points for reaching the Finals. The winner receives 2 additional bonus points.
    • No points are awarded for walkover wins/draws of any kind.

13.5.2. Club Ranking The Club Ranking is based on the points earned by individual teams in the last two seasons (§13.5.1.2.). The club with the highest average points in the last two seasons is ranked 1st. The team with the second-highest average points is ranked 2nd, and so on. If a team did not participate in one of the past seasons, their points are also divided by two.

13.5.3. National Team Ranking The National Team Ranking is based on the results of national teams in the previous tournaments of a year, so that each completed competition is taken into account in the ranking (i.e., each ranking includes the results of the most recently completed Nations League, Euro Cups, World Cups, and Confed Cups). Here, the procedure explained in §13.5.1.2. applies correspondingly. The national team with the highest average points during this period is ranked 1st. The national team with the second-highest average points is ranked 2nd, and so on. If a national team did not participate in one of the past seasons, their points are also divided by two.

If the suspicion is confirmed, the player will be punished according to § 18.5.1.B. If multiple players/club managers are involved, they will also be penalized as determined by the administration.

15.2.2. Use of Alias: In all ProLeague competitions (evening/spontaneous tournaments may choose a different rule), the "Alias" name of the player pro must be set up in such a way that the Alias can be clearly assigned to the Game ID.

15.2.3. Bot Alias: Bots must be labeled with the Alias "BOT" or "AI".


15.3. Game Invitations (General)

15.3.1. The team with the home advantage always has the right to invite the opponent to the official match. The ProClub friendly match is used for this purpose. Exceptions to the home advantage are regulated by § 15.3.3.

15.3.2. Troubleshooting: In case of the "invitation bug", it occasionally happens that due to technical circumstances, the visiting team cannot be found or the visiting team does not receive the invitation from the home team. We recommend the following troubleshooting steps: 

  • Changing the captain,
  • Lobby reset (all players leave the ProClub mode and reload it only when all players are in the EA SPORTS FC main menu).

15.3.3. Surrendering the Home Advantage: The right to invite can be surrendered to the visiting team if:

  • The home team cannot find the visiting team when searching for the friendly match,
  • The home team cannot invite the visiting team due to other technical reasons,
  • The visiting team demonstrably does not receive the invitation,

The home team and the visiting team must agree that the visiting team assumes the right to invite.

15.3.4. Creating a Replacement Club: If the home team is neither successful after taking the measures under § 15.3.2. nor agrees to surrender the home advantage under § 15.3.3., the team must create a replacement club that uses the most user-controlled players in the official match. If both teams play with an equal number of user-controlled players, the visiting team must create a replacement club. The right to invite remains with the home team.

15.3.5. Informing the Next Opponent: If the start of the game is delayed due to disconnects or EA SPORTS FC bugs, then the following opponents must be informed promptly on the same evening about the expected delay.

15.3.6. The teams must contact each other at the start of the game. A simple "Hey" or another unclear message sent only from the VM list of the opposing team does not suffice as a contact attempt. There are several ways to contact the opponent. The following communication sequence is recommended for this purpose: 1. Discord, 2. ProLeague website.

15.3.7. Permitted Stadiums: Only certain stadiums are permitted in all ProLeague competitions. The list of stadiums allowed in EA SPORTS FC can be found here: CLICK HERE Unmentioned stadiums are allowed.

15.3.8. It is not allowed to modify the stadium name. Stadiums can be reported to the administration for review, with the burden of proof resting on the applicant.

15.3.9. Colors for Custom Jerseys: When using custom jerseys, the two jerseys must visually differ from each other sufficiently. What is considered sufficient is decided by the respective admin in case of doubt.

15.3.10. Game Abandonments: The 5-minute rule applies: During the first five minutes of the game, a game abandonment is allowed if a player is sent off or if the game becomes unplayable due to delays, graphical bugs, or other impairments. The game starts again from the beginning. If goals, assists, own goals, yellow or red cards have already been scored during the abandoned game, they will be added to the new result or match report. A received red card in the abandoned game also applies to the replay, i.e., the player who received the red card must immediately get another red card at the start of the game again to restore the numerical disadvantage. The opponent must support the red card.


15.4. Game Cancellations: 

  • A single official match scheduled on a weekday with multiple games cannot be canceled. Individual cases will be reviewed and decided upon in consultation with the respective admin.
  • Cancellations of all mandatory matches on a weekday with mandatory matches are possible under the conditions of § 15.4.1.
  • If a team cancels a game appointment under false pretenses, the ProLeague Administration reserves the right to sanction the said team up to and including league exclusion.

15.4.1. Game Cancellations due to Insufficient Number of Players:

  • If a team cannot compete on a weekday with mandatory matches due to a lack of players, the respective team must contact the upcoming opponent via Discord at least 8 hours before the start of the first mandatory match of that weekday, and also inform the responsible administrator via ticket (8 hours count aswell).
  • A cancellation is only effective once approved by the league manager/administrator, for which a reason must be given. Approval by the administrator does not require public communication.


15.5. Streaming Obligation: Every team participating in ProLeague competitions undertakes to stream its official matches via an appropriate platform. The streams must be freely accessible for 72 hours after the game. An up-to-date stream link of all teams must be mandatory stored in the team profile on the ProLeague website. If another player is streaming, this alternative stream link must be provided upon request by another VM.


15.6. Card Rule: If a player receives a yellow-red or red card, he will be suspended for the first game of the following game week (the 1st matchday of the following week counts). If a player receives multiple dismissals within a game week, the suspension will be extended by one game per dismissal. 

Examples: 

  • If a player receives a yellow-red or red card on a matchday consisting of 3 games, he is suspended for the 1st matchday of the following game week.
  • Matchdays 4, 5, and 6 fall on a weekend. If a player receives a yellow-red or red card on matchday 4, 5, or 6 -> Suspended on matchday 7, regardless of when that matchday is played. This naturally applies to matchdays consisting of 2 or 4 games as well.
  • A sending-off in both the 11th and 12th games in the same 2-game week -> Suspended for games 13 and 14 (1st matchday of the following week and an extension of the suspension for one game).
  • A sending-off in games 13, 14, and 15 in the same 3-game week -> Suspended for games 16, 17, and 18 (1st matchday of the following week and an extension of the suspension for two games).

15.6.1. Replay: A sending-off in the main or decision game also counts for a replay. Thus, no other player from the team who did not play before is allowed to take the position of the suspended player.

15.6.2. Def - Wins / Individual Ratings: Games that are not played regularly, such as victory by Def-Win / individual rating, do not count towards serving penalties (red card suspension, league suspension). If, according to § 19, a game in which a card suspension has been served is retrospectively counted, it is considered served.

15.6.3. Season Transition: Card suspensions are reset after each season and are not carried over to the new season.


15.7. Bugusing: Any form of bug exploitation is prohibited.

15.7.1. Goalkeeper Interference: Blocking the goalkeeper is prohibited, e.g., during set pieces and goal kicks (player runs into the goalkeeper). Conversely, it is also prohibited for a goalkeeper to provoke interference.

15.7.2. Interference in Set Pieces:

Any interference in set pieces is prohibited. This includes in particular:

  • Failure to maintain the 9.15m distance in set pieces by using player animations,
  • Interference with the shooter by influencing their run-up path / blocking the run-up path,
  • Intentional pushing / knocking down / tackling of an opponent, causing them to fall,
  • similar interference against the opponent.


15.8. Gamebreaking Bugs: In the event of bugs for which neither team is responsible and which significantly affect the course of the game, the following procedure is followed: If the bug occurs in the first half of the game, the entire game must be replayed. If the bug occurs in the second half, everything that happens in the first half will be included in the final match report, and an additional half will be played. Screenshots must be taken accordingly during halftime of the make-up game.

15.8.1. The opposing team must be informed of the delay before the restart.


15.9. Respectful Conduct / Fair Play / Sporting Behavior: Respectful and fair behavior towards the opponent is expected in all ProLeague matches.

15.11. Match Fixing in the ProLeague

15.11.1. Anyone who, as a player, official, or admin, influences the outcome or result of a ProLeague competition in favor of the opponent and thereby gains an unlawful financial advantage through a public sports bet related to the ProLeague, will be punished with a ProLeague suspension. The duration of the suspension will be determined at the discretion of the administration and will be at least one year.

15.11.2. ProLeague competitions include any eSports events managed and organized by the ProLeague. In particular, this includes any matches of national leagues, national cups, the ProLeague Cup, the Hall of Fame Challenge, and the Super ProLeague (SPL).

15.11.3. An official within the meaning of § 15.11 is someone who decides on the use and instructions of players in a ProLeague competition.


15.12. Height restriction: To improve competition, all players must configure their virtual pro to comply with the following height restrictions during official matches:

15.12.1. Teams playing with a 3- or 5-defender formation are allowed to have 3 center backs (CB) with a height of up to 1.87m. The remaining players on the team may have a height of up to 1.82m. Goalkeepers are not subject to size limitations.

15.12.2. Teams playing with a 4-defender formation are allowed to have 2 center backs (CB) with a height of up to 1.87m. Additionally, either 1 full-back (FB) or 1 central defensive midfielder (CDM) on the team may have a height of up to 1.87m. The remaining players on the team may have a height of up to 1.82m. Goalkeepers are not subject to size limitations.

15.12.3. The choice between full-back (FB) and central defensive midfielder (CDM) is only available in the case of a 4-defender formation.

15.12.4. The aforementioned size limitations are to be made exclusively in the metric system during the configuration of the virtual pro. When using the imperial system (feet and inches), conversion must be done accordingly. Warning: 6 feet and 0 inches = 1.8288m does not comply with the previously mentioned limit of 1.82m and is therefore not allowed. 6 feet and 2 inches = 1.8796m does not comply with the limit of 1.87m and is therefore not allowed.

15.12.5. The height restriction does not apply to bots, as their size cannot be adjusted.

15.12.6. The sizes of all field players on the team must be shown in the stream (compare §15.5). To do this, the streamer opens the "Team Management" during halftime and shows the sizes of all field players on the field. A recording of the official match showing compliance with the height restriction is also acceptable, provided that it clearly identifies the official match.

16.1. Prohibition of Any Game Modifications: All modifications to EA SPORTS FC are prohibited. The timing of the modification is irrelevant, meaning that any modifications outside of ProLeague gameplay are also prohibited. Modifications include any visual and technical changes, regardless of whether they provide an advantage to the individual or not.

  • Second Offense: Two-week Suspension
  • Third Offense: Punishment as per § 16.2.


16.2.

16.5. Mitigating Circumstances: The discretionary punishment (length of ProLeague suspension) may be mitigated if the player found guilty under § 16.2. or partially guilty under § 16.3. contributes to the clarification of a manipulation related to their own manipulation under § 16.1. by voluntarily disclosing their knowledge.


16.6. Obligation to Report Knowledge of a Modification: Anyone who becomes aware of a manipulation under § 16.1. must report it to the administration immediately.

The minimum duration of this punishment is one year.


16.8. Publicly Accusing Modifications: Publicly accusing cheating, which objectively tarnishes the reputation of a team or player, is prohibited. The administration decides at its discretion and on a case-by-case basis, depending on the extent of the accusation and the damage caused to the reputation, on the appropriate punishment.

18.5.5.4. In the event of a user violating § 18.5.5.2. four times, a lifelong ban from the shoutbox may be imposed. The decision is made by the administration after evaluating the individual case and at its own discretion.

18.5.5.5. In particularly serious cases of violation of § 18.5.5.2., in addition to §§ 18.5.5.3., a sanction (temporary ProLeague or official match ban, etc.) may be imposed at the discretion of the administration.


18.6. Overview of suspended players: An overview of player suspensions is located on the ProLeague website under the respective league tab "Suspensions". It is also possible to see which penalties have been imposed in each player profile.

19.1. Judging games in case of team dissolution/disqualification

19.1.1. In case of team dissolution/disqualification, the following procedure applies: 

  • If a team is dissolved/disqualified before the start of the season (Monday before the 1st official match), it will be replaced by the highest-placed team (first non-promoted team from the previous season from the next lower league). If a team from the lowest league is dissolved/disqualified before the start of the season, it will be replaced by a backup team (if available).
  • If a team dissolves or is disqualified after the start of the competition, it will not be replaced. Thus, all matches of the dissolved/disqualified team will be judged as 2:0 in favor of the opposing team. If a team from the lowest league dissolves/disqualifies after the start of the season, it will be replaced by a backup team (if available).
  • In the context of knockout competitions (any form of knockout system), the judging will be based solely on the results of the current round. Disqualified/dissolved teams will not be considered in the rankings and will not be replaced by other teams.

19.1.2. In special circumstances (e.g., multiple team dissolutions in one league), it is the responsibility of the administration to balance the league sizes and to move one or more teams to the next higher league.


19.2. Judging games in case of rule violations

19.2.1. In the case of a rule violation, judging a single game may occur. The team violating a rule will be referred to as the violating team.

19.2.2. In the event of a rule violation resulting in judging a single game, the respective game will be judged by the responsible administrator or, in representation, by the head admins.

19.2.3. When judging a single game, judging takes place as follows:

  • If the match has not yet been played: 2:0 in favor of the opposing team.
  • If the match has already been played, it will also be judged as 2:0 in favor of the opposing team. Unless the actual result is better for the opposing team.

19.2.4. If a match must be judged against both teams according to § 19.2., the result will be set at 0:0 and both teams will have the point deducted that they received for the draw.

20.1. If assistance from an administrator is required regarding this ruleset or other issues, administrators can be contacted at any time using the Discord ticket system.


20.2. Protest: A protest (reporting a rule violation) can only be filed within 48 hours after the start of the match. Beyond that, the protest will not be considered. It is solely the responsibility of the team manager (authorized representatives in the Discord channel) to ensure and timely file the protest. The team filing the protest bears the burden of proof and must provide evidence within 48 hours.

The 48-hour rule is applicable unless it is waived in individual paragraphs.

All protests must be reported via Discord ticket. Private messages to the administrators are not sufficient.


20.3. General Clause: With regard to these regulations, the administration reserves the right to evaluate individual decisions as special cases. These will be explained in detail in the form of an announcement.


20.4. Shoutbox: Stream links in the shoutbox that do not belong to an EA SPORTS FC stream are tolerated, provided they contribute to the strengthening of the community. Any content posted in the shoutbox is available to ProLeague for content creation.
