EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE NOTED, YOU AND GAMERHUDDLE HEREBY AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL CLAIMS THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION ONLY. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY THIS AGREEMENT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO BRING A CLAIM IN COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OF YOUR PEERS.

Claims will be handled by a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and pursuant to the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the claim is filed, except where those rules conflict with this Agreement. Claimants can contact AAA by calling their toll free number (800-778-7879) or visiting www.adr.org. Any arbitration under this agreement will be held in Placer County, California. GamerHuddle will not elect arbitration for any Claim filed in small claims court with jurisdiction over GamerHuddle, as long as the claim is individual and pending only in that court. You or GamerHuddle can require arbitration of any Claim at any time unless the Claim was originally filed in court and trial has begun or final judgment entered.

YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CLAIMS WILL BE ALLOWED OR HEARD IN ANY ARBITRATION OR SUIT HELD UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

Claims will be arbitrated on an individual basis only. You and GamerHuddle agree that the authority of the arbitrator is limited to individual claims between you and GamerHuddle alone.

Any questions regarding the enforceability or interpretation of this Section shall be decided by a Court with jurisdiction and not by the arbitrator.

The Federal Arbitration Act governs the arbitration requirements and provisions herein. The arbitrator’s award will be binding and final upon both GamerHuddle and you, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA; provided however, a written notice of appeal must be delivered within 30 days after the issuance of an award by the arbitrator to the arbitrator organization and all parties to the arbitration. Judgment upon any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

GamerHuddle Disclaimer

 

Game of Skill Offerings

GamerHuddles customizable interface provides services such as: H2H Wagering in League Play, Leagues Entry Fees for Season Contests, Daily Fantasy Sports, Fantasy Sports Leagues, Guaranteed Prize Pools, Fifty-Fifty Events, H2H Fantasy Sports Matches, & Private Fantasy Sports Leagues & Pools. An Events payout structure cannot be changed after the first payment is made.

No winning outcome is based: a) on the score, point spread, or any performance or performances of any single real-world team or any combination of such teams; or b) solely on any single performance of an individual athlete or contestant in any single real-world sporting or game of skill event.

 

Event Rules

 

Events rules are defined by the challenge sent to a prospective contestant or a commissioner of a league(s) or event(s) you compete in.  Prior to entering an event, it is the responsibility of the player to acknowledge the rules.  It is also the responsibility of the commissioner to provide contestants the league rules, settings used, and wagering structure prior to any member joining an event.  

 

Scheduling Conflicts

 

It is common that members of an event or league may not be able to align prior to each advance of an event or week of a season.  GamerHuddle does not allow for Wager Leagues to award a “Force Win” in a scenario where schedules will not align.  In these scenarios, the game will either be a “fair sim” meaning CPU vs CPU simulation, or the available party to play will play the unavailable parties “Auto Pilot” or vs their CPU.  It is not fair for free wins or losses to be given out in a wagering platform due to scheduling issues, when the other members of the league are engaging in competition for their wins or losses.  Also in this scenario, injuries and all other league rules will be applicable during a sim.  

 

Poor Connections/Disconnections

It is also not realistic to expect that lag/poor connection or server issues will not occur.  If lag issues are occurring, the game must be exited prior to any scoring plays, or the opponent having the ball past their opponent’s 35 yard line.  If disconnections occur, the team that was up can request the game be played with the scenario that was left off when the game disconnected.   It will be the team leadings decision to recreate the previous scenario, play a game with the closest time remaining rounded up or down per quarter, or restart the game from the beginning.  If the game restarts and there was agreement on recreation of the game, then it will be a fresh restart/replay.  If a scenario occurs where a game was replicated, and the losing team cannot concede after the 2nd half by being down.  The commissioner will be required to set the Force Win for the victor. 

If a member chooses to not follow the above policies, they are subject to removal of the league and forfeiting their league fees and/or peer to peer wagering monies. 

 

Broadcasting/Streaming  

To ensure that there is evidence and witnesses that can attest to any foul play in an Event or League you compete in, it is recommended that you stream your games.  Your commissioner will need proof of any foul play for them to take action.  The streaming options are: www.twitch.com

Code of Conduct

It is the responsibility of the member to read and fully understand the Wager League Disclaimer.  Any attempt to artificially give someone wins or losses is prohibited.   Impersonating or attempting to impersonate another player in any way is prohibited.

Setting up matches with the intent to do anything but participate in a game of skill is a violation of Wager League policy. Any instance will result in potential removal of a league at the commssioners discretion and/or probation or suspension from GamerHuddle to compete in Wager Events. 

Accessing or playing games on another players account is prohibited. Anyone found to have accessed another player’s account or allowed another player to access their account without acknowledgment from the opponent and the commissioner that this is acceptable, is reason to be removed from a Wager Event or League and/or probation or suspension of entering Wager Leagues.

If you are cited for intentional lagging, your account will be closed.

Fantasy Sports Offerings

In salary cap contests, participants will create a lineup by selecting players listed in the Player Pool.

Contest results will be determined by the total points accumulated by each individual lineup entry (scoring rules summarized below).

Participation in each contest must be made only as specified in the Terms of Use. Failure to comply with these Terms of Use will result in disqualification and, if applicable, prize forfeiture.

Scoring

Shown on the site.

Scoring Notes

  • Points Allowed (PA) only includes points surrendered while DST is on the field - doesn't include points given up by team's offense (e.g. points off offensive turnovers).
  • The following scoring plays will result in Points Allowed by your Defense/Special Teams:
    • Rushing TDs, Passing TDs, Offensive Fumble Recovery TDs, Punt Return TDs, Kick Return TDs, FG Return TDs, Blocked FG TDs, Blocked Punt TDs
    • 2pt conversions
    • 2 Point Conversion/Extra-point Returns
    • Extra-points
    • Field-goals
  • A fumble recovery will be awarded to a Defense/Special Teams if the team's offense recovers a fumble by the opposing defense (e.g. after an offensive turnover).

Lineup Requirements

Lineups will consist of 9 players and must include players from at least 2 different NFL games. The 9 Roster positions are:

1

QB

2

RB

3

WR

1

TE

1

FLEX

(RB/WR/TE)

1

DST

Player Pool

The Player Pool will consist of all NFL players expected to be on the active roster for any team scheduled to play in the contest in the NFL Simulated Season. Occasionally a player may be missing from the Player Pool due to trades, injuries, and/or or other unforeseen circumstances. Each player listed in the player pool has an assigned salary and a valid lineup must not exceed the salary cap of $50,000.

Due to the fluid nature of rosters, in the event a team adjusts their roster after player pools are finalized, GamerHuddle reserves the right to adjust player pools after contests for that Game Set have become available. In these instances, additional players may be added to the Player Pool up until 48 hours before a Game Set’s lock. This may result in valid lineups becoming invalid. Any participants who have entered contests for the Game Set prior to the adjustment will be notified via email.

A "Game Set" is a set of games used for contests; each contest is tied to one Game Set. Contests tied to the same Game Set can be created at different times. Therefore, game policies are based on the timing of a Game Set being made available, not each individual contest.

Position Eligibility

Player positions are determined at the sole discretion of GamerHuddle.

Lineup Edits

Lineups may be edited at any time leading up to games. Each individual player will become "locked" at the scheduled start time of their team’s game. A locked player cannot be added or removed from a roster spot. Locked roster spots for all entries are displayed in contest GameCenters.

If the scheduled start time for a game changes after contests for a Game Set containing that game become available, GamerHuddle will take measures to ensure the change is reflected on Draft Screens and for lineup editing purposes. In the rare case that a game starts before the scheduled start time, all players within that game will become locked as soon as our feed reflects that the game has begun. Additionally, any swaps that were made after the real-life start time of the game will result in those lineups being disqualified and refunded.

Cancelled, Postponed, and Rescheduled Games

In the event that a game is cancelled or postponed & rescheduled to a time within the original Scoring Period and this change is made less than 24 hours before a Game Set’s start, the game will be included in the Game Set and players listed to play in that game will be eligible to accrue points.

If a game is rescheduled for a time OUTSIDE the original Scoring Period and this change is made less than 24 hours before a Game Set’s start, the game will be disabled from the Game Set and players listed to play in that game will NOT be eligible to accrue point. Players who you selected for your roster as of the time of the lock of the disabled game will remain in your roster and will accrue zero points. Players in disabled games will become locked at the originally scheduled start time of their game.

The Scoring Period for NFL is defined as the timeframe between the scheduled start of the first game within the Game Set and 11:59pm ET on the first Wednesday after the last scheduled game within the Game Set. In the event that a game is cancelled or postponed & rescheduled to any time (both outside & within the original Scoring Period) and this change is made MORE than 24 hours before a Game Set’s start, it is at the sole discretion of GamerHuddle to include or remove the game from that given Game Set.

In the event a game is postponed, GamerHuddle will make a decision no later than 11:59pm ET of the day of the game on how to handle the postponed game.

GamerHuddle may choose to adjust the Scoring Period for a Game Set at their sole discretion to accommodate schedule changes to any time before 12:00am ET on the day after the Game Set is scheduled.

Any games that are disabled will be indicated as such on Draft Screens. Emails and other notifications may also be used to notify users of disabled games.

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including only one active game and this is known before the contest start time then all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded.

If a Game Set includes only one active game but this was not known until after the contest start time then contests for this Game Set will not be canceled.

Games are "known" to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by GamerHuddle.

Example: If a Game Set includes two games at 8pm ET and 10:30pm ET respectively, and the 10:30pm ET game is officially postponed at 6pm ET then all contests for that Game Set are canceled and refunded. If the 10:30pm ET game was not officially postponed until after 8pm ET then contests for that Game Set are not canceled and are played out using only the one active game.

If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including zero active games, all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded.

Suspended or Shortened Games

GamerHuddle uses official NFL statistics and only includes statistics from games NFL deems to be official. If the NFL declares a game "suspended" then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Game Sets containing said game. Any statistics generated on a later date when the game resumes will not be included.

Game & Stream Malfunction Policy

In the event of a game malfunction, all Game Sets with the affected match up will be cancelled and refunded. A game malfunction is defined as any malfunction that prohibits the game from finishing. There are rare instances in which there may be a malfunction of the GamerHuddle stream, but the game itself remains unaffected. In these cases, the streams will be Re-Connected. GamerHuddle will publish the box scores of these contests, and all scores will be considered final after confirmation of all scoring plays and turnovers by our operations team.
