Still trying to figure it penalties and offsides. The soccer equivalents of banding.

Banding rules. One of the most logical abilities in Magic.

offside is easy. An attacker is offside if the ball is passed to him on the moment that he is in between the last defender and the keeper. If the attacker and defender are on 1 line, then it's ok, but if a bodypart (like a torso) has passed the last defender then it should be offside.

penalties, well, that's ref dependable sadly. Egypt should have had a second penalty yesterday

I actually love banding, but itís often cited as confusing ability.

Whatís stopping the defenders from all staying on the other side of the field so their opponents would be offsides automatically if they have a break away?

EDIT: Iím an idiot. Forgot about the ⚽️!

LOL. Then all you need is a speedy attacker and a good pass.
You will often see attackers hovering around the last defender(s) waiting for that pass to come so that they might just or just not be offside.


Yup, and I don't know why. It's easier to grasp banding than to explain why a 12/12 monster doesn't trample over a 0/1 kobold.
