Matches are played 3 times a week: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 7PM CET (Central Europe Time). After signing to your account you will be given option to watch your latest match via match viewer or you can just review details in your fixtures or division.
In each quarter same lineup (primary or secondary) takes part in the match, according to your choice in game plan. Match engine takes under consideration not only technical skills of each player, but also his mental skills, his form, his morale and current fitness level.
Out of those parameters fitness is very important - player will lose some each quarter he is on the court, which means that after 2 or 3 quarters in a row he most likely be exhausted. The more tired he is less of his full potential he can use.
While most of the time each player will face the same opponent within a quarter, there are counter-attacks and team factors that will help him wherever he attacks or defends.
Match Performance Index (MPI)
Match Performance Index is similar to Performance Index Rating used in Euroleague Basketball and Efficiency index in NBA - it is a statistical indicator how well player was performing in a particular match or a quarter. The formula is as following:
(points from 2pts and 3pts shots + assists + steals + interceptions + blocks + rebounds) - (2pts shots made + 3pts shots made + turnovers + fouls)
It gives some idea how well player was doing compared to others, however it is only statistical indicator, it is not linked to any player parameters (technical nor mental), it is just a simple calculation.
Parameter is visible in player details if manager has a data analyst in staff or the match was televised.
