For more stone cold rules, read the Rule Book.
How to create a league:
The game is designed to be played with a group of at least 2 friends. If you don't have any friends on DropTheBelt, you can now play a Matchmade League. The FUW is the original league formed by the creators. You can see 4 teams, 10 wrestlers: [*updated] You are no longer required to have a Diva on your team. In the options you can set how many teams you want in your league and how many Superstars per team. Your league size is customizable. Create a League.
Step 1: Set the league and team size.
A typical 4 team league could look like this.
Suggested league sizes:
- 4 Teams = 8 Wrestlers per team
- 5 Teams = 7 Wrestlers per team
- 6 Teams = 6 Wrestlers per team
- 8 Teams = 5 Wrestlers per team
You have the option to set any amount of teams and superstars. Just remember, there are only so many wrestlers on the roster.
How to Draft:
For created leagues, your league commissioner will set the date and time for your league draft.
Match made leagues will draft within 72 hours from the time the 6th person joins the league.
DropTheBelt's exclusive draft system allows you to set up an order of selection. With this, you don't have to be available when the draft is LIVE, the computer will chose for you in the order you have already set up.
You can also edit your team name at anytime by going your teams page.
For created leagues, when you have your league of at least 2 teams, click activate and your teams will start earning points. You can check the results from any show on the DropTheBelt Results page, just click on the show and date you want to see. DropTheBelt.com automatically keeps score and results are posted the same night as the shows.
We can notify you via Twitter (in addition to email) when your draft is scheduled.
To enable this feature, click on your name at the top of the screen to visit your profile. Then click the "edit your profile" link just under the red line. Input your twitter screen name (leave off the @) and check yes to the "Tweet me league updates (draft dates and trades)?" question. Click save and you're ready to go. When you next draft is scheduled (or the date changes) you'll get a tweet with the new date and time. Don't forget to sort your preferred draft picks so the auto-draft will pick the right wrestlers for you if you can't make the draft!
Also, don't forget to follow @DropTheBelt on twitter, as more general notifications will be sent as they occur. We will be tweeting when the free agent window is opened or closed and when seasons start or end, in addition to any news that may happen and some status updates during live scoring.
