Re: Current Match Engine - manual reminder

According to the volleyball rules the players in any action are assigned to some initial setup, however, they may change their positions as long as they follow the rules relating to the initial setting. VM-Manager meets these rules. Thanks to this actions in VM will be similar to real ones, which should bring much joy to the users inspired by this sport discipline.

Disabling possibility of setting initial players' positions at the start of the set
In order to improve playability of VM-Manager with the new engine, we exclude the possibility of changing initial players' positions at the start of sets. From now on the setter will always perform the first service. After large amount of tests we found that the ability to change this setting prevents working out the opponent. Therefore, the exclusion of this possibility is a procedure admittedly artificial and diverging from reality, however, bringing major benefits in the context of the game.

Positioning in service reception
In service reception participate only libero and both receivers.
There may be 6 different initial positions of the team, in which players receiving service position themselves as follows:
- in placing 1 and 2: the first receiver receives the service diagonally, libero in the central zone and the second receiver along the line
- in placing 3 and 4: libero receives the service diagonally, the first receiver in the central zone and the second receiver along the line
- in placing 5: the second receiver receives the service diagonally, libero in the central zone and the first receiver along the line
- in placing 6: libero receives the service diagonally, the second receiver in the central zone and the first receiver along the line

Positioning in attack
1) Middle-blocker, if he is the 1 line, always attacks from the middle zone. Even if his initial position is on the wing, he switches place with a player standing in 1 line in the center.
2) Similarly it follows that the attacker and the receivers always attack from the wings when they are in the 1st line. The attacker placed in the 2nd line always attacks from right wing in the 2nd line. Even if in the initial position he is differently placed, he switches his position (if necessary) with a player, who at the beginning stands in the 2nd line on the right wing
3) The receiver placed in the 2nd line always attacks from the center zone of the 2nd line

Positioning in block and defence
- a defence is always performed by players standing in the 2nd line
- in block always participate players from the 1st line. If a middle-blocker is placed in the 1st line on the wing he switches with a player standing it the middle.

Positioning in protection
1) In protection after BLOCK (protection on the side of an attacking player) participate equally all players except the one who made an attack.
2) In protection after PASSIVE BLOCK (protection on the side of team jumping to the block) participate equally all players standing in the 2nd line.
3) In protection after FEINT (protection on the side of a team opposed to the player making feint) participates one of players placed in the 2nd line.
4) In case of successful BLOCK-OUT ATTACK the ball is protected only after PASSIVE BLOCK (protection on the side of team jumping to the block). In the protection participates one of players placed in the 2nd line.
5) In auto-protection participates one of players who was positioned in the block.

An error related to order of beginning the set was fixed:
- 1st set is always started by away team
- 2nd set is always started by home team
- 3rd set is always started by away team
- 4th set is always started by home team
- 5th set is always started by away team


Note: we have already presented all possibilities of the current engine, changes in players' positioning and tactical capabilities. We are aware that some of introduced solutions differ from reality. Each such decision was made deliberately after careful analysis. All of them are to help to increase the attractiveness of the game by finding suitable proportion between reality and playability.
