How does the league work?

As soon as the number of teams playing in a division is set, a league schedule is created. Schedules will be based on a round-robin format whenever possible (teams play each other the same amount of times in a division season)

The league follows a “race” format in which a player plays a player from the opposing team in a race based on each player’s skill levels. The “home team” chooses whether to name a player first or let the opposing team choose first. An opponent is chosen, the race is established based on the skill levels of each player, and the match is played. Depending on the division format, 3, 4 or 5 matches can be played each week.
