Users are allowed to create ONE account. Users are allowed to create additional characters by purchasing the character slots from their user screen. If a User feels they have a valid reason for changing to a new account they must contact the Game Master team prior to creating a new account and may under very special circumstances be granted permission. These requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Rule 3b amended:
Previously::
Quote:
3b) Managers changing contracts when leaving a team or to help a player leave:
Managers are not allowed to change contracts when leaving a team or to help a player leave. The purpose for doing something like this can include, but is not limited to:

-helping a friend
-signing the player to their new team
-hurting the team overall

Some examples of our interpretation of this being broke:

-terminating a player contract to avoid a transfer fee being paid
-setting the release fee less than the footballer was purchased for
-setting the release fee less than the footballer is valued

Rule 3c amended:
Previously:
Quote:
3c) Managers disrespect towards other users/teams:

Managers arriving at a team must take into consideration that the team contains active footballers and they must respect the wishes and feelings of those footballers. Failing to do so will result in action taken against the user.

This can include but is not limited to an action where a manager takes over a team and does the following:

- changing the team training time to something completely unrelated to the team.
- changing the team positional training to something unrelated to that position (i.e. shooting strength for a GK)
- drastically changing team information without consulting the team first, e.g:
- Team Name / Colour / Logo / Description
- transfer listing a group of players without first talking to them.
- locking the players out of the team forum.
- trying to force players out of the club because they are not of a particular nationality/religion.

Rule 3d amended:
Previously:
Quote:
3d) Fair Play/Sporting Managers/Players:
Each club shall play its full available strength in all competition matches, unless some satisfactory reason is given. Managers' who show a clear lack of respect for the competition in which their team is playing in, or behave in an unsporting manner will risk being punished. A few of examples of this would be:

i) Where a manager takes control at a team for the sole purpose of benefiting a few players/friends by giving them maximum contracts, whilst not being able to provide good competition for their opponents.

ii) Where a manager shows a lack of respect for the game, by failing to field a full strength team for the sole purpose of providing easier competition for their opponents.

iii) Where one or more people attempt to fix the result of a competitive match, for the purpose of benefiting one, or both teams. A competitive match is defined as an official, or unofficial league or cup competition.

ii) Where a manager shows a lack of respect for the game, by failing to field a full strength team or fielding bot players over active players for the purpose of providing easier competition for their opponents or saving the team from loss of confidence against a strong opposition. A manager should always set a lineup with the highest chances of achieving the best result for the team, while offering the toughest opposition to the other team in each match.

Please note when a team is playing an ‘easy’ or bot match, squad rotation or using youth players can be valid as long as there is no obvious attempt to lose a match or affect the outcome of a league by reducing goal difference.

iii) Where one or more people attempt to fix the result of a competitive match, for the purpose of benefiting one, or both teams. A competitive match is defined as an official, or unofficial league or cup competition.

iv) Attempting to deceive or trick an opponent into fielding a weaker team or to be less active in an attempt to gain an advantage over them.

Rule 3e amended:
Previously:
Quote:
3e) Managers changing teams:
A manager may not abuse the job system by changing teams too often. With "changing" we mean when a manager is already employed by one team but apply for another team while being employed. If a manager is fired by the team he is allowed to apply for more teams and such events is not included by this rule.

This rule only applies to team manager positions and not assistant manager positions.

Rule 3f amended:
Previously:
Quote:
3f) Realistic Transfers:
A transfer (from one team to another) should be done in a realistic way with regards to price and player movement between teams. The following important rules should be followed:

i) A footballer should not be transferred back and forth between teams in order for one of the teams to earn money on the transfer or for one of the teams to loan a player from another team. The result of a transfer should be that the footballer really change teams in order to play for the new team for a longer time.

A player shall not, in normal circumstances, transfer back and forth between the same team within a 30 day period of time. This includes indirectly transferring as well (using a middle man).

In exceptional circumstances, this may be deemed acceptable, and approved by the Game Master team. Any player that would like to transfer to a previous team within a 30 day period must make a special request to the Game Master team, who will approve/reject the request. To do so, please Contact the Game Master Team prior to transferring back to a previous team, explaining your reasons for the transfer.

ii) Unrealistic prices (for instance paying way more than the minimum release fee) is not allowed. There is really no reasonable explanation to why a team should have to pay more than the minimum release fee. If you still find such a transfer necessary you should have a very good reason for it and this reason should be clearly communicated in a press release or in the forums.

iii) Unrealistically low transfers. It is not allowed to buy or sell footballers from one team to another for an unrealistic amount of money, that does not represent their footballer value.

As a manager you are only appointed manager for a team (you don't own it) so if you make poor financial decisions for a team you will not be the only one suffering from it, the team itself and its footballers will.

Rule 3g amended:
Previously:
Quote:
3g) Mass Player Movement:
A footballer/manager should not be involved in player movements between teams where the goal is to move a whole, or major part of a team. This may include one or more of the following:

i) A team shall not, in normal circumstances, exceed 3 player transfers to the same team within a 45 day period of time. This includes indirect transfers of players as well (Using a middle man).

ii) A manager shall not terminate one or more player contracts where the goal is to move a whole, or major part of a team.

In exceptional circumstances, this may be deemed acceptable, and approved by the Game Master team. Any team that would like to transfer more than 3 players to the same team within a 45 day period must make a special request to the Game Master team, who will determine whether the request will harm a league/country in anyway. To do so, please Contact the Game Master Team prior to making more than 3 transfers.

The Game Master team will only consider requests that involve teams from the same country. All other requests will be declined. Once a team has received approval from the Game Master team, they may go ahead and complete the transfers. All transfers made must still be completed in line with other Footballidentity Game Rules.

Where player contracts expire naturally, mass player movement will be deemed acceptable, and does not need approved by the Game Master team.

ii) A manager shall not terminate one or more player contracts where the goal is to move a whole, or major part of a team.

Any team wishing to mass move to a different league/FIDA must make request to either local FIDA (or IFIDA, where local FIDA is inactive) 1 season in advance.
This means that the deadline for request coincides with the very 1st round of the season at the end of which the team is allowed to move.

If the team:
- does not make explicit request by the deadline
- mass moves before the end of season (4 or more players join target team in less than 45 days during the season)

All transfers (including the first 3) will get reverted.
If the crime is reiterated, an extra chemistry penalty will be applied to the players mass moving, instead of the standard 15% applied for transfers they will get 35%.

Expired contracts will not count towards a mass move unless:
- The players expired contract was for less than 110 days.
- Other team mates under contract move to the same target team as the non contracted player.
- You change team within a season with the aim of shortening your contract length.

The only exceptions for the above mentioned rules are:
- Players that cannot meet age cap requirements
- Players in leagues that are going to be closed
- Players in leagues that are declared bot (by IFIDA)

In all these cases, teams still need IFIDA approval

Mass moves within the same country are dealt by the NFIDA in charge of it.
The team must make explicit request to local FIDA and wait for response.
NFIDA shall communicate the decision and, in case of approval, the date after which the team is allowed to move.
In case of denial or missing request, NFIDA can directly report the faulty moves to GMs, who will act according to the rules described in the previous section.

NFIDAs duties:
Once a NFIDA receives a mass movement request, it must announce it in the league forum it is in charge of and inform IFIDA at the same time.
