If you want to play with friends and colleagues instead of always against them, you can create teams and a Team Rankingwith a professional account. Each registered member can join a team. All settings, registrations, logoffs and info on the teams can be found under "My Team". You can change between individual and team rating in the overviews.
Each player who is not yet a member of a team can create a new team. As team founder, he automatically assumes the role of administrator and can decide who joins the team.
The precondition for joining or creating a team is that one is a member of a tipping community. Generally, the team creation should be finished by the beginning of the tipping game. This is why one cannot join a team after one has exceeded the set number of points. If you want to join a team during a tipping game, you can get a different username.
There are two ways of joining a team:
The administrator can invite players to join his team. As long as one has entered a valid e-mail address, one is notified of the invitation via e-mail. The invitations are displayed under "My Team". If an invitation is accepted, the player is immediately a member of the team.
Under "My Team" players can apply to a team. Here the administrator will be notified of the application, and can then decide, under "My Team", wether to admit the player or not.
In order to be able to compare teams with a different amount of members, the team rating is based on a points average. Thus the sum of all players points is divided by the number of players.
The tips from a players individual rating are automatically taken as tips for the team rating. Each team member is thus automatically represented in the individual rating.
If players are admitted to a team during an ongoing tipping game, the matches already played are set to "not played". If a player joins a team during a tipping game, its average will sink.
The administrator of the tipping community determines how many members a team must have at the least and how many it can have at most. In creating a new team, there can of course be teams that have not yet reached the minimum number. These teams will only be admitted to the team ranking when they have reached the minimum number of players.
