MAGIC MOMENT: Be the playoff hero you always wanted to be

Every league, regardless of competitive or roster setting, has a regular season that leads to a playoff bracket, and with no limit on number of seasons there is always next year if you don’t quite make the cut.

The season length is determined by the number of players within the league and how many times each team plays the other.

There is also no rigid calendar that requires all games from one day to be completed before moving to the next. That means if two players are online and have the time they can knock out every season game between them in one go!
