Hey Hey all!!!
So, as my previous post alluded to: this coming Friday you are all free to start playing League games, and the Spring Cup kicks off officially!!! (Wooooo!!! armata_PDT_11.gif )
But before we get going, a few basic things: just go to this part of the website to grab all the key files. All coaches will want, and are expected to have the Competition Rules part (LRB6 to some) which is the most recent release of bloodbowl rules, which is available for free as a download all over the internet. Also, note the three new teams!!!.
As far as rules go, we will use ALL rules contained within the LRB6, excepting any rules that are 'replaced' or superseded by those written in the QNKBBL rules pack. For example, the "Turn Time Limit" rules are not enforced in any QNKBBL matches, however, if both coach's wish to play with the turn times enforced, they are free to do so (As per the QNKBBL Rules, page 2, paragraph 4). There are other examples of this; Illegal procedures and the Challenge System spring to mind among others.
Coach's should also have had a read of the QNKBBL Rules pack, which has remained unchanged from Jacobs last edit'. You WILL NEED this document in order to play the leagues "Special Games"; the ruff and tough of Street-Bowl, the hotly contested Dungeon-Bowl, The infamy of the Squig-Cup, and of course the hilarity of the Mc-Murty's round!
This brings me to the ever important MRS !!! [Match Report Sheet(s)]. Coach's obviously need to fill this one in DURING EVERY GAME. A few things to note here; make sure you check with you'r opponent during, and at the end of the match to see that the sheet is filled in clearly and correctly. If you feel that you sometimes lose track of this during the uproar of a great game of BloodBowl, I am going to suggest that BOTH COACHES keep track of the goings on for both teams (IE you both fill out a MRS) and compare them post-game, then locate and remedy and differences between the two.
Only one copy of the MRS needs be submitted to the Commish though - which can be done one of two ways - If I am there in person, all good just hand it too me tongue.gif If not though, please scan (or type-up) and email too the following address: ~~~ QNKBBLcommish@hotmail.com ~~~
A post up on WAU in the appropriate thread is also an option if need be.
Next up is team selection. Coach's who wish to roll over a team that was in a previous QNKBBL season they are free to do so, read up on the rules pack for this. However, most coach's seem to want a "re-boot" or fresh, out of the box team to play. This team is chosen from the normal rules and has a Team Value of 1 million GC. Please include the following information in the submitting of you'r team (I will illustrate by posting my team):
Coach: Name, 'WAU name', initial
Coach: Josh, 'Knockout', T.
Team Name; Race of Team
Orc's; Arkham's INSANE!
Player # (Player position), player Name [repeated for all players, in # order]
#1 - (Blitzer) - Ra's al Ghul
#2 - (Blitzer) - Tal'i al Ghul
#3 - (Blitzer) - Nyysa Raatko
#5 - (Thrower) - Deadshot
#7 - (Goblin) - Dr. H. Strange
#8 - (Goblin) - Dr. V. Zaeaz
#11 - (Blocker) - The Whip
#12 - (Blocker) - The Hook
#13 - (Blocker) - Razor-Burn
#14 - (Blocker) - Shell-Case
#16 - (Troll) - Amygdala
All non player purchases (rerolls, fanfactor, etc) including the number thereof
3 Team Re-Rolls.
NOTE: TEAMS WHO DO NOT SPEND THE FULL 1Mill CG: The unused portion of your funds will be used to give some lucky fans season tickets !!! (In practice, this means it will be used to purchase points of fan factor). As all new teams must start game 1 with a TV of 1million and an EMPTY treasury. There is no way around this.
This team details will be entered into a "Week Zero" file update mid-week, so if I could get those team lists ASAP then that would be great coach's !!!
Thats all (for now...),
Commish(ua?) Out! armata_PDT_37.gif
ED: oh, one more little note. On player names. If you purchase a player, you have the time until the NEXT update to think up a name and get it too me - if, when I go to do an update, there are players from a PREVIOUS update who still have no name, I have the right to either name them myself, or give this privilege to any other coach - the name I (or they) choose is the name that player is stuck with until they die, or are fired. So, name you'r players!!!
Also, I will not be using the "Hall of Fame" function on the Excel file any longer.
