    Teams will be required to check their own team and opponent’s player loadouts prior to each game.

    If a player is using an illegal player loadout (banned traits/perks), both teams will be required to communicate in order to play the game in fairness.

    However
    , it is up to your team to identify if your opponent has an illegal trait/perk equipped. If they do you must back out of the game immediately and require the other team to remove them. If they don't or refuse, that team will forfeit the match. If the game starts (puck drops with actual game play happening) both teams forfeit their right to protest the game if it’s later found out a team has banned traits.

    The following traits are not allowed (both gold and silver perks):
    • Truculence
    • Unstoppable Force

    Unstoppable force shouldn't be banned, it's just as viable as any of the rest of the traits or xfactors as you can still poke the puck off but it's not my event.


    It's just being used as a scapegoat so people don't have to put their points in body checking to play the body against people with it.

    If those are banned take close Quarters it’s way more over powering goalies can’t stop it even in correct position.

    Ban all traits or don’t ban any. The majority of traits can be exploited to benefit the player using them. Cherry picking what’s allowed and what isn’t doesn’t make sense.

    So to in order to remove any benefit at all to playing larger than 5'7" 160 you ban the two traits that the big builds get so that players can use the midget 95 speed builds with impunity.

    If you are 10 points of speed faster than someone, the slower build should atleast have some sort of advantage, like being able to hit or shield the puck.

    The decision to not put any checking or balance on your guy is yours. You have to make sacrifices and there isn't a single build that is supposed to be able to do everything.

    You can be a 6'1 160lbs pmd dman/forward with 94 speed and truculence. If the builds were balanced properly it'd make sense but they aren't at the moment.

    A truculence ban is reasonable, but I still don't agree it deserves it. Unstoppable force shouldn't be touched. It's the only thing that makes power forwards viable in the current meta of fast weak builds.

    How is it possible that banning 1 trait on the game but not another is fair in any way. Either you ban all traits or none. More drama and politics in a video game that stops the entire community from advancing or being taken seriously.
