The following players violated the Malicious Activity Rules by leaving or refusing to play for their team for a considerable portion of season 7:
Players leaving their team during the middle of the season is a detriment to the competition of the league and also affects many players’ enjoyment of the ZHL. With that said, it was agreed by the League Management to reach out to these players to see if they were willing to participate in community service. I reached out to all of the previously mentioned players and asked if they were interested in helping the community in any form. Only Watermelon took up the offer of community service (5 hrs of free coaching). As such, he will not be punished for his actions during season 7.
We then brought the two cases of ResSlayer and Sir to a league vote for malicious team activity.
ResSlayer will be banned for the duration of Season 8 for Malicious Team Activity
Vote Passed: 8 Yes – 1 No
Sir will be banned for the duration of Season 8 for Malicious Team Activity
Vote Passed: 5 Yes- 3 No – 1 Abstention
Some quick notes:
League vote process has been changed - votes are now private so that each voter will not be called out for their positions and becomes a fairer practice.
We are now adding timelimits to league votes once they are called.
Specifics will be posted in the rules when they go live.
