With the Fumbbl Cup now in the later stages of the draw we thought it was about time to start something fun for the masses again, so XFL IX is back in action!

We do indeed have a nice lineup of races for you this round, as the random draw gave us:

Dark Elf
Ogre
Slann


Some elfing, some leaping and a crapload of snots. Waht's not to love?

The XFL is as always open to [R]anked teams of any TV/TW, so this is also an excellent opportunity to see those Dirty Tricks in action!

If you have a team from one or all of these three races and would like to take part, you are hereby invited to APPLY on the group page.

If you do not have a team from these races you would be pretty silly not to make one and apply anyway. It is after all great fun!

The tournaments kick off on wednesday December 10th, with a first round deadline of Friday December 19th.

The new client (and server) is up and running. However, there's still some residual issues with communication between FUMBBL and the FFB Server. This means that games will not automatically connect, and you'll need to supply a game name to make it work.

It's getting very late on my end, and I will therefore leave it as it is, and hope that you'll bear with us as we try to figure out this little quirk tomorrow.

There are loads of changes that have happened on the site and in the client, so please let us know if you find something that's broken (apart from the automatic scheduling that isn't working currently).

Edit: I've started a status and feedback thread for this in order to be able to provide status information and get feedback from you guys in a more orderly fashion.

Tomorrow evening (Sunday 23rd) at 20:00 server time, Kalimar and I will be starting the work needed to make the new FFB client version live on the site.

As opposed to previous updates, we are going to attempt doing this update without any downtime, and without cutting people's games off.

Now, this will mean that old games will continue to run on the old server, while new games will be started on the new server. Reconnecting to a game will still get you to the appropriate server (meaning the server the game started on), and the old server will be running for at least a couple of days in order to have games finish properly.

Now, while we're hoping to be able to do this relatively seamlessly, there's always a possibility that it won't work as we expect and we may need to cut games off in order to do this migration. If you have some very important match, it might be advisable to not play it during tomorrow evening.

Last night, at roughly 23:15, FUMBBL lost power and was down for a number of hours. The first estimate of return of power from the power company was at 02:00, which as you may imagine means I'm sleeping.

The hardware is protected with an UPS and I could therefore shut down things in an orderly fashion, and at around 08:30 this morning the servers were powered back up with no issues.

As I always try to do, I sent out tweets about this on the [url=https://twitter.com/FUMBBL]official FUMBBL Twitter[/url], which I recommend you keep an eye on if you are having problems with the site.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused by this lack of access.

With everyone excited about the FC, it's time to capitalise and use your interest to tempt you into a more achievable goal.

Come win a FUMBBL Minor. You know you want to....
