    Thread for previous season is here: http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/inde...-return-lagole-gon-is-champion-huzzah.118589/

    #1. Blood Bowl can be a serious time commitment - take this into account - you must be able to play at least one match per week. If you are not sure you can do that, you probably should not apply.
    #2. Look at #1 again and make sure you can play one match per week before applying. All coaches that do not play their matches within the weekly timeframe of the matchday will make everyone else sad.
    #3. There will be breaks for various major international festivities
    #4. We are going to play Cyanide's Blood Bowl 2. You must have a legit (as in with a working multiplayer key) copy of this to participate. You can play with us even if you only have the Basic edition of BB2.
    #5. We are using Steam's instant messenger to organize matches. If you hate Steam with all the passion of your heart and won't install it, tough luck.
    #6. All Blood Bowl rules implemented into BB2 apply except ageing and mixed teams.
    #7. Situations not covered by the rules will be dealt with using common sense.
    #8. Newfags and veterans alike are much welcome!!!
    #9. To apply, provide following information:
    Steam name - Cyanide name - timezone (in GMT format) - team race (can be changed later)
    #10. We allow new teams up to 1300 TV to join. Minimum 11 players (journeymen are allowed, but will be counted towards your TV). Teams from previous season can join as long as they have played no further games, no other strings.

    Megrim | Megrim | Megrim | +10 | tba
    RK47 | RK47 | r3dknight | GMT+8 | Pro Elf
    Undead Phoenix | Pheoni | Pheoni - GMT+0 | Lizardmen

    The first order of business is to decide what teams to allow for this league. Last league we only accepted fresh teams.

    In my opinion, all teams from previous season should be allowed. I also think allowing teams under 1200-1400 TV to join is good (assuming their match history is legit), including custom teams (with no doubles or statups).

    As for your question, I certainly think old teams should be allowed to carry over and I think whether 1200 or 1400 custom new teams should be allowed should depend on carry-over TV. Probably 1200?

    Thank you for hosting the league, Jaedong :salute:

    Also, during the steam winter sale, bb2 is on sale for 10 euro (sadly the dlc and expansion have way worse discounts) if any newfags are interested.

    I will most likely reup, not sure about team. Elf team just rolled some juicy skillups last round, but I'm not sure I can stand another season of elves.

    Sword Coast Shambers will return!

    Unless everybody else will roll with new teams. I might also create a new team.

    Please register following rule #9 :M

    Seems most people agree old teams should be allowed to return, and no one has voted against it.

    No one except Grunker has commented on TV limit for new teams though. It is better to decide sooner than later, so people have time to play teams to the appropriate TV if they want.

    Andnjord would have to accept that, his TV is exactly 1300. It might be somewhat unfair to him. Some races benefit a lot from custom creation and FF is just a bloat.

    My current TV is 1430. It will be 1400 after I buy a stadium upgrade. I might also consider firing a 40k zombie.

    I believe there might be some kind of miscommunication here.

    Custom teams have the advantage of tuning but the disadvantage of no doubles or stat-ups tho.

    I think 1300 sounds about fair. Jaedar what's your own feeling?
