Competition System

Teams

Teams have 1 000 000 gold to spend (so they should be able to field a TV1000 group) using the teams from CRP (Competition Rules Pack) with the following additional choices, bonuses:

* Slann, Underworld, Chaos Pact teams can be fielded;

* you can distribute 3 normal skill among your players. No player may receive more than one skill this way.

As per the new regulations, human catchers cost 60 000 gold, halfling treemen have the new Timmm-ber! skill (even if it can't be set in the team roster in OBBLM). Wood elf treemen do not have the Timmm-ber! skill.

Season scheduling

 

Regular season: those who finish in the regular season proceed to the playoffs. Matches are played in a round-robin fashion, if possible, otherwise the exact procedure is laid down by the administrators.

 

Play-offs: a knock-out stage for the final victory.

Match count for the regular season will be limited to maximum of 10 games!

Seeding

If setting up a full round-robin regular season is not possible, the participant teams will be distributed into groups. The teams will be seeded after assessing their Coach's performance in previous Blood Bowl games.

The OBBLM rankings will be used for seeding together with the Coach's FUMBBL ranking.

Game week

We define 'Game week' as the period of time during which teams have to play one round of the league.

Usually a game week is 2 (normal) week, thus 14 days long. An exception is around Easter when the game week is 3 weeks long.

First game week: Mon, 9th Jan 2017
Regular season: 9th Jan 2017-4th June 2017. (10 game weeks)
Play-offs: 5th June 2017-30th June 2017.

Matches

Arranging the date for the matchday

You are obliged to make the arrangements with your opponents on the official forum of the league:

LFG Blood Bowl Liga 2016 forum (still points to the 2016 version, it will be replaced ASAP)

If you don't play a match and the arrangements took place outside the LFG forum, the result is conceding for both parties!

Stand-in

A maximum of two times in a season you can be stood-in for by someone else. If you don't find a replacement for a match or you would exceed this two possibility, you must concede the game.

Aki ezt elmulasztja, az automatikusan feladásra vár státuszba kerül, és az ellenfelének a jóindulatán múlik, hogy egy később beugró helyettesítővel hajlandó-e asztalhoz ülni. 

From 2017 onwards the parties HAVE TO notify the administrators if they are unable to get a replacement Coach until mid-way of a game week. Without this notification you are set in a 'will concede' status and unless you can play the match in time or get your opponent to play against a late stand-in Coach you will automatically concede the game.

Conceding

You can concede during a match (when things go south for you) or by not showing up to a match. For consequences read the relevant part in CRP. Despite CRP's regulations the winner team does not get the match income of the loser team!

If you conceded during a match, your opponent automatically wins; use the current result if he was winning, otherwise book a victory for him with 1 more TD than you currently have.

If you don't show up, your opponent wins the match 1-0.

The administrators may elect to ignore the 'star players with 51+ SPP may leave if you concede' rule (see CRP pg. 29).

Warranty against conceding

If, one day before the end of a game week you offer at least 3 sensible date/time/place combination to your NEXT opponent, you will get immunity against conceding for the next game week.

A sensible date/time is week days afternoon (starting the match from 4:30PM-6PM), a sensible place is a gaming club or maybe your opponent's place.

If your opponent also gets this warranty, but you still cannot agree on a match date/place and the match is not played until the end of the game week, it is booked as 0-0 without MVPs and income.

Preparation for matches

* You can use all inducements from CRP, including cards.

* Painted teams (Head Coach must be painted too, if used) from round 3 get 1 extra cheerleader AND 1 extra assistant coach.  These bonuses are not cumulative. (You won't get a 2nd extra cheer for round 4, etc.)

Common denominators

If you can agree on these with your opponent, you can:

* both draw 1 additional card for your match

* measure the time with a chess-clock. Use 64 minutes per Coach per match. If you are out of time you can only stand up prone players or make them prone from a stunned state.

Scoring

 

Victory: 4 pts
Draw:  2 pts
