After a vote among the players and officials, we have decided to introduce a new rule:
Beginning next NASBL Season, there will be a league roster limit of 9 players. This rule does not restrict players for scrims against mixes and teams, only restricting the number of players one team may have registered at one time during the season. If a team would like to pick up a player after they have reached the limit, they will have to drop a player currently on the roster, and this player is free to join any other team. However, a team must wait 2 weeks(40% of league) until picking up a dropped player again.(Rosters must be finalized for the week by Sunday)
Note, we are not preventing players from joining teams or forcing players off of teams. The final roster of 9 will be up to the teams themselves. This roster limit will only effect the team’s available pool of players for the NASBL season.
In addition, there is a clarification on the rules for substitutions:
A substitute is any player who will fill the spot of a team player during a game that is not on the teams roster. The team may pull from their roster without need for approval, but if they need an outside substitute they must get approval from the other team. No player may alias as another in order to circumvent these rules. This will be considered cheating and the game will be subject to review.
Wow! The season is up and running with a full double bill of matches for all of our teams. Grounds Keepers came out swinging with big wins over Little Mermaids White and Speed Hack Detected, who themselves bagged a surprise victory over the Tim Allen Post Crew. Both Little Mermaids teams looked set to topple the Pillars, but the preseason favorites won through in the end.

Rules & Format
After much deliberation between our officials and European counterpart, we have a set of rules and a format. Be aware, they do, however, differ from our buddies across the sea.
OTL = Overtime loss
Each team will play every other team twice during the regular season (on different weeks). The season is 5 weeks in length. As was done in Deathball, each team will schedule with one another to set a time beneficial for both teams. If no resolution can be made, the default game day time will be Saturday at 9:30 PM EST.
The order of tie breakers will be:
- Head-to-head record
- Regulation Wins (Wins not in overtime)
- Goal Differential
This format mirrors the format of the National Hockey League and we believe it will be the best fit in Supraball.

Supraball Competition Rules
I – General Format
II – Gameplay
III – Sportsmanship
IV – League Specific
V – Other
I. General Format
The standard for competitive Supraball is two teams of five competing for twenty minutes on the map “db-pitch_walls”. Alterations to this format may occur in events organized by third parties, in which case this article will be invalidated.
The following stipulations are placed in order to ensure the competitive nature of the game.
For clarification of stats taken by humans, he is how assists and saves are awarded.
- Assist: Awarded to the player who last passed to the goal scorer (2nd to last passer is awarded an assist if they are directly involved in the cause of the goal).
- Save: The player with keeper powers blocks or catches the ball after an enemy has shot it at their goal before the ball is deflected outward by either post or wall (If the stat keeper decides that a shot is odviously not on goal they will not mark it as a save).
Substitutions will only be allowed during one of the following two scenarios:
- A player disconnects due to an external issue, such as a blackout.
- A goal is scored and a team would like to replace a player during the period that the teams are unable to go to the other’s side.
**only teammates, or a player agreed on by both teams may substitute someone.
Delay of game: the act of a winning team wasting time when they have the lead, will be addressed on a case-by-case basis by an independent, unbiased third party. This party will decide whether the team was indeed delaying the game and their punishment.
**until a proper fix is implemented, this rule is subjective.
All competitive matches, excluding PUGs, will bar the use of language that insult or offend any players in the game. Players are expected to be on their best behavior. Out-of-game actions will not be monitored or considered in any reprimanding ruling. However, actions committed in game will be reprimanded on a case-by-case basis. Derogatory binds fall under this category.
IV. League Specific Rules
- No macros, or external programs are allowed that allow a player to do something in the game he couldn’t do without them. This excludes VoIP programs.
- Starting season 2, the roster limit will be 9 players per team.
- Reschedules must be agreed upon by both teams. If a team cannot agree to reschedule and cannot field 5 players (including subs) they will forfeit.
- In this order, tiebreakers will be determined by: head-to-head record, overall goal differential, total goals scored.
The NASBL Voting process will be used to settle controversial issues. NASBL is not responsible nor should they be expected to use the process for every decision.
The voting process is as follows:
- 3 votes from a Public Poll (Will be split based on the vote, ie 66% of the votes will result in getting 2 votes)
- 5 votes from Officials (Each official gets a vote)
- 2 votes from League Commissioner
For an amendment to pass, 6 out of the 10 votes must be in favor of the resolution.
All rules are subject to change, every player will be expected to be following all of the guidelines stated.Read More
