The first step in submitting a match is answering two basic questions. They are:
- Did you and your opponent show up for the match?
- Did you or your opponent use a substitute player?
In answering these two questions, League Engine can determine whether the match being submitted is a regular match, substitution match, or no-show match.
A regular match is defined as a match between the actual opponents, where no substitutes were used and both players showed up to the match. In this situation, the players and their teams are awarded points.
A substitution match is defined as a match that one (or both) of the players used a substitute player for. In this situation, both teams are awarded points, but the individual(s) who used a substitute do not get points awarded to them as a player in their level.
A no-show match is defined as a match that one of the opponents simply did not show up to. In this situation, the player who did not show up and his or her team have two points deducted, and the other player and his/her team is awarded four points.
