Can I join a league during the season?
Yes, you can join during the season or just use the results, statistics and the Game Center. But we recommend to join from the beginning of the season to collect as many points as possible. This is the only way to play for the championship title.
Can I play alone?
Yes, you can play alone. However, there is no exciting competition.
How are the points calculated?
All statistics and results of the Topscorers App are based on the data of the National League with all official National League players and teams of the current season. For the calculation of the points, 42 statistical values of the National League are used, which are collected live during the games. The data is provided by the National League AG.
How are the market values calculated?
The market value of a hockey player is calculated based on the performance (number of points collected) and the demand within all top scoring leagues.
When are the points distributed?
The final distribution of points always takes place after the end of a game day (approx. 5 hours after the end of the game). Any corrections made later are not taken into account. With the Topscorers season subscription (upgrade) the points are distributed live. Your transfer account will be credited after the end of the match day (approx. 5 hours after the end of the match).
How does the transfer market work?
On the transfer market you can buy and sell players during the qualification (Regular Season). If you want to sell a player, the transfer market will always make you an offer in the amount of the market value. Of course, your competitors can also make you an offer. You decide to whom the transfer will go. The player will be transferred immediately after the offer is accepted and the amount will be credited to your account. On the transfer market you will see players offered by the transfer market as well as players placed on the transfer market by your competitors. During the playoffs the transfer market is closed.
Why do I not see a player on the transfer market who is not yet on any team in the league?
Only a certain number of National League players who are not yet in your team or a team of your competitors will be available on the transfer market. The players on the transfer market vary daily.
Why did I not get a player on the transfer market?
You were either outbid by another player or your bid was below the market value. If a teammate made the same bid, the time of the bid is valid (the player with the earlier entry gets the award).
How do I see who is bidding on the same player on the transfer market?
Bids are placed face down. You cannot see if and how high other users are bidding on a player.
How long is a player available on the transfer market?
Each auction of a player has a fixed expiration time (maximum 48 hours). You can find this time under the player's picture. If the time expires, the player changes to the highest bidder or goes back to the transfer market.
Why did I not receive any points?
With the free version of the app, your points are not assigned until the end of the match day (about 5 hours after the end of the match).
At the start of the first match of a matchday, your current account balance must not be in the negative, otherwise you will not receive any points for the entire matchday. Also, your lineup must be complete at the start of the game. For each position that is unoccupied at the start of the match day, 50 points will be deducted.
Can I go into the red with my account balance?
Your account balance may not be in the red by more than 33% of your team value between match days. However, at the beginning of the first match of a matchday, your current account balance must not be in the minus, otherwise you will not receive any points for that matchday.
What happens to the players who are no longer in the National League?
The market value of the players will drop to the minimum (CHF 60'000) after some time. But you have some time to sell the player. The player will not be visible in the National League until the next season.
