    Ban Buyout Policy - Update Jan 2018

    Starting in Januray 2018 we are going to update our ban buyout policy based on the most commonly received feedback from management and players. The 2 most common requests are
    1. Increase buyout for repeat offenders
    2. At a certain point the length of the ban should be served and can not be bought out
    3. No chat mute buyouts for certain lengths
    These 3 requests will be part of our new policy, as well as a new classification of "Capital Offense". Capital offense will replace site bans. here is a brief point form of the changes
    • Moving all currency to CAD from USD
    • Tiered Ban Buyout Amounts (over a 5 year span)
      • 1st Offense - $50CAD
      • 2nd Offense - $75CAD
      • Capital Offense (3 or more in a 5 year span) - $100CAD. Below are points for anyone with a capital offense
        • Must Serve a min 3 season ban
        • Includes a 6 month chat mute
        • If its a ban for the LGHL, can not play in either the Xbox or PSN until the min 3 season ban. However while this person is serving a capital offense they could buyout and play in other LG leagues (ie FNP, ESHL, CanAm, LGFA ect)
        • Must pay the ban to ever be allowed to come back and play in any league at LG. Capital offenses do not expire over time.
    • Any chat mute that is 6 months must serve 2 months of that mute that can not be bought out.
    • The only situation whereby a site ban is issued is when a player who is currently serving a CO ban, is issued an additional CO ban, a one-year site ban will be issued as well.
    Those will be the new changes, However a lot of people do not know the current buyout rules that protect managers so i want to post those below to remind everyone
    • Any player who buys out mid-season will be returned to their current team and contract (no player can buyout of a contract or who they play for)
    • Anyone who quits mid-season isn't pulled off any roster position in other leagues (as long as its not LGHL) but can not signup for any new season/league at LGHL while under a ban
    • Any Manager whom is issued a seasonal ban is ineligible to buyout his or her ban to return to the same league within the same season the ban has been issued.
