Joining a contest.
The primary method of joining contests is to go to the 'Lobby' page.
Navigate to the 'Lobby' at the top of your home screen. Within this page, you can filter by contest type, real-money vs OwnersBucks (site currency), available sports, number of entrants, and entry fee. Clicking anywhere within the contest row will open a window where you can review contest details and enter the contest by clicking ‘Build Lineup’ in the bottom right corner.

Type of matchups.
Our Tournament style contests offer one contest type. Submit 1 or multiple rosters into a group of 100-1000 players and watch your roster accumulate points over a 7day period. Pay-outs for this style of game are given to the top (25%) of entries.
Selecting your team.
If you are participating in our Tournament style game, you will select 10 players while staying within your allotted salary cap ($200,000). Simply find the player you want from the player list, and add them to your team. Sounds easy enough, but there are a few things to consider. When adding a player, you must always keep your overall salary in mind. Choose too many high-end Forwards and you may leave yourself short when choosing the other roster positions you need to fill.

Managing your lineup.
In a Tournament contest, Activating and Benching your players is not something you are regularly required to do. However, there are rare occasions where you may be required to activate or bench a specific roster position.
This will only occur when the projected games for a roster player you have selected increases after your roster has been submitted. Typically this will happen for Goalies if they are scheduled to be the backup, but are moved to the starter for that specific game.
If the above scenario occurs, it will be up to the user to select which game they want to bench their player for. By default, any added games are set to having the player benched.
To make any changes, navigate to your dashboard and select the tournament contest. On your next screen, click on the “schedule” tab., and review your roster schedule to activate the desired game.
You can process as many swaps as your wish to your line-up, but each swap will cost a penalty fee of 20% of the dropped players remaining salary. If a player is injured, you will not be charged the 20% swap fee.

When choosing your roster for our Tournament style contests, your NHL team Roster will be made up of the following positions.

3 Defense (D)
2 Goalies (G)
10 Players total.
Game opportunities and Best Ball:
In our Tournament style contest, your players will accumulate points in every game they play, unless Best Ball is activated. If Best Ball is activated, your roster will accumulate points in the best overall games they play in based on the number of Game Opportunities you have.
Your NHL roster’s Game Opportunities are listed below per position.
Forwards - 16 game opportunities
Defense - 10 game opportunities
Goalies - 4 game opportunities

Your roster will accumulate points based on the following stat lines.
Skaters and Goalies
Goal (G) = 10 points
Assist (A) = 5 points
Shots on Goal (SOG) = 1 point
Blocked shots (B) = 1 point
Plus/Minus (+/-) = 2 points (the plus-minus is a multiple of this)
i.e your player finishes with a -2 rating (-2x2 points) = -4 points
Save (S) = 1 point
Goals Against (GA) = -5 points
Win (W) = 10 points
Shut Out (SO) = 5 points
