You lot should already know about this anyway Wink but why not.

Southern Wastes League (SWL) Enters a New Era!

SWL (Southern Wastes League) is one of the most active and friendly Leagues on the FUMBBL platform. The SWL has a long and proud history stretching back 70 seasons and beginning way back in the dawn of FUMBBL (c.2003). Our coaches and thus games are broadly based in the Australian/ New Zealand Timezone GMT +7 to +12 timezones.

Exciting times are ahead as we launch a BB16 compatible League change and a full League redraft of fresh teams beckons! This is your chance to join or rejoin the tradition and legacy with the fresh start!

All that is required is:
- an internet connection (speed not a factor, dial up is sufficient)
- the ability to commit to organise and play one game of blood bowl each week over a 7 week period during the evenings in Australian EST evening time.

For those who haven't tried the new client or are unfamiliar with the FUMBBL website, it is very impressive and easy to use. Also, the website provides many great tools that have allowed us to build this prestigious league.

What you need to do:

- Head to the SWL Group Page: Just check out the Guide Smile

- Come and say hello at SWL on Discord. Lots of friendly coaches who can help answer any questions about the league or FUMBBL itself.

- Submit a draft list ASAP – the league balances races to ensure some variety. Figure out which races suit you best; list them in order of preference and send it to Tussock (draft admin) and swladmin via PM. We suggest you list at least ALL 24 eligible races.

- Teams are drawn on Monday 19th at 8pm EST and you can then get the team prepared and submitted ready for the season to start!

Any questions let me know Smile

Cheers Smile

Hey guys, am thinking of throwing my hat in the ring...

I am confused by this:

"The BB16 post-season roster rules will be implemented as close as possible. "

I havent kept up with client development and the League Management screens, but are we doing the full player retirement etc etc as per the BB16 rules on the site, or is this some sort of manual process where we need to do this on our own?

Not sure what has been implemented so far Clay.

My guess is that a fair amount of coding has gone in behind the scenes to make seasons work in league.

If not it’s going to be just like it used to be in the old days when we had to trim teams at the end of each season in reggies and conferences.

That is what "a full League redraft of fresh teams" indicates, yes Smile

Any idea how many teams have applied so far and how many are still expected to apply?

I heard whispers that we were currently sitting at about 30 coaches submitted as of last week and it would be good to see us over the 40 coach mark for 5 full conferences.
