A valid user name and password will be used as an identifier to log in to game play and to keep track of your team’s score and standing. You will be able to see your team’s score any time you return to the game with your user name and password.
Assembling your Team
To assemble your team, first select an angler slot from the roster area at the left side of the screen. Then, in the table to the right, select an individual angler from the free agent list by clicking the green ADD button icon next to his name. Repeat the process until you have selected five (5) anglers (one from each group) and then complete the transaction by pressing the “Save Roster” button in the top-left corner above your roster.
Note: In order to receive points, your roster must contain 5 anglers.
After completing your team, you can still change anglers each week as you set your strategy for that week’s tournament. To alter your roster, click on the yellow “Edit” buttons to the left of the anglers on your Entry page. Choose your replacements from the free agency list of available anglers in order to add or drop an angler from your current roster in the same transaction. All roster changes must be completed by the scheduled tournament start time (approximately 8:00am).
Creating or Joining a Group (Optional)
You have the option to group yourself with friends, co-workers, or completely random fans by joining or creating a group. Within each group, your entry will be automatically ranked. Most of the groups in the game are public and can be joined at any time. If you want to play with a specific group of people you know, create a private group and make it only accessible to those whom you have given the group password. The creator of a group sets the group’s name, motto, image, message and password (only if private). Your entry can be in up to three (3) different groups at one time. More information is in the Group Directory page. There is no prize awarded for being the top entrant in your group.
Name Your Entry (Optional)
After you have signed in, you will be prompted with a red “Create Entry” button. After you click on the button you will be automatically redirected to the “Entry Settings” page where you will be asked to name your entry and decide whether you would like to receive email reminders.
Once you have completed your game settings, click on the “Save Settings” button.
The amount of points an angler earns is based on the Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings which are determined by a system that awards points based on final standings in each Bassmaster Elite Series event. The players also earn points for the Bassmaster Classic event based on a similar but modified scoring system.
