Here’s an example: Players (9): John, Bob, Carl, Matt, Joe, Will, Steve, Ryan, Andrew Wifi Ubers: John, Bob, Carl -- John will be your Wifi Uber player, with Bob and Carl as substitutes Wifi OU: Matt, John, Joe -- Matt will be your Wifi OU player. If Matt is not on, then John will take over. But if John already played for Wifi Ubers, he can't play again, so you will have to substitute in Joe instead. Wifi UU: Will, Steve, Bob -- Will will be your Wifi UU player. If Will is not on, then Steven will take over. If Steve is not on, then Bob will take. If Bob already substituted for John in Wifi Ubers and played, then Bob will not be able to play either. In this case, you will need to find an immediate substitute or your team will be given a loss in this tier. Wifi LU: Ryan, Andrew, John -- Ryan will be your Wifi LU player. If Ryan is not on, then Andrew will take over. If Andrew is not on, then John will take over. If John already played for Wifi Ubers, then he will not be able to play. In this case, you will need to find an immediate substitute or your team will be given a loss in this tier. Wifi NU: Carl, Steve, Andrew -- Carl will be your Wifi NU player. If Carl already played for Wifi Ubers, then Steve will take over. If Steve already played for Wifi UU, then Andrew will take over. If Andrew already played for Wifi LU, then you will need to find an immediate substitute or your team will be given a loss in this tier. If you are confused with anything, then please contact Eternal.
