  • Superstar Characters are OFF
  • Mercy rule is ON
  • Nolan Draft¹ format for drafting teams
  • Stadium list: Any stadium is legal if both players agree to it. If the payers do not agree on a stadium, Mario Stadium will be used.
  • All other settings are left on default. Drop spot may be turned off, but use of easy batting, auto fielding, and auto baserunning result in a game loss.
  • Batter pausing is banned. Penalty is that the batter may not swing at the next pitch.
  • Fielder Swap Limit: the fielding player can pause the game twice per inning. Any fielding adjustments can be made when paused, but after two pauses no more adjustments can occur. If the pitcher becomes tired, an additional swap may occur. If violated, the batting player must alert the fielding player, and if the fielding player refuses to cooperate, they are awarded a game loss. If the violation goes unnoticed or if the batting player allows the swap, the game will stand with no penalty.
  • The player who signed up is the one who should play. If a player is caught cheating via having another person play for them, both players will be banned from the current and future events (up to TO's discretion).
  • If the above parameters are not met, the game is ruled as invalid and must be replayed. If either player refuses to replay the game, the player(s) will be disqualified.

Emulator Requirements

1. Nolan Draft Rules:

  • Follows snake draft rules using a 1-2-2-2... format, but you don't have to pick a captain first and you choose your captain after drafting your team
  • Non-captain Bowser is banned, so if you draft Bowser he MUST be your captain
  • Players can agree on who gets choice. If there is no agreement, the coin flip discord bot. Whoever wins choice can choose between first/second pick OR home/away team. The other player gets choice on the other option (ex. Player A wins choice and chooses to be the home team, so player B will choose between picking first/second)
  • One player will get choice to pick first/second, and the other player will get choice of batting first/second.

The following game modifications are to be used:

  • ! Required: Project Rio Codes !
  • !! Online: Netplay Event Code 3.5 !!
