Frequently Asked Questions
How many teams should I have in my league and how many characters should be on each team?
It’s completely up to the commissioner to determine how many teams to invite to the league. Some leagues have as many as 12 teams, others have only 2 teams playing head-to-head, and everything in between.
The number of characters per team will depend on how many teams you have in your league.
We like to play with at least 2 characters per team, but it’s up to you. It's ok if you have some leftover characters that don't get picked (just like in real sports - not everyone makes a team), so the numbers don’t have to be exact.
For example, if there are 24 characters and you have…
- 12 teams in your league, each team will have 2 characters.
- 11 teams in your league, each team will have 2 characters and 2 characters will go undrafted.
- 10 teams in your league, each team will have 2 characters and 4 characters will go undrafted.
- 9 teams in your league, each team will have 2 characters and 6 characters will go undrafted.
- 8 teams in your league, each team will have 3 characters.
- 7 teams in your league, each team will have 3 characters and 3 characters will go undrafted, etc.
How should I conduct the draft?
Most commissioners organize the draft either over email or in person with their league. We don't yet have a draft feature that lives within the site, but we're working on it. Until then, you can lead the draft and have your friends make picks in a group email, text, through the league message board, or the next time you're all together.
We recommend 2 methods, either a traditional snake draft or a random selection draft.
Can more than one team select the same character?
At this time, no, a character can only be on (and earn points for) one team. Just like in real sports, a player can only play for one team at a time.
We’ve completed the draft and made our picks! Now how do I assign characters to teams?
When you're ready to assign characters to teams, click "Manage League" on your main league standings page (this link is visible only to commissioners). You'll then see a list of all the characters, each with a drop-down menu of all the teams in your league. Use the drop-downs to assign a team to every character. Once you have selected a team for every character (or "Undrafted" if a character didn't get drafted), click "Submit Rosters" one time and then you're done!
Is there a deadline to set our league rosters?
No deadline whatsoever. Create a league and join in to play at anytime. Points will be applied retroactively, so you won’t miss a thing.
Are the points updated automatically?
Yes! You create the league, invite your friends, and hold the draft. We take care of the rest.
When do the points begin to count?
Episode 1 of the season.
When are the points posted?
We post the points first thing in the morning after an episode to avoid spoilers across time zones.
