All,

currently we're playing a season of BBBF Online - a league for all Belgian coaches. Having great fun, so far so good.

With Eurobowl at the horizon, I'd like to set up a playing environment for our Belgian Team to playtest their teams.

How should I proceed best? If possible I'd like to stay within the same "group", so that would need to be a second "tournament" within the same group: is that possible? I guess it is, but before I accidently delete our season I thought I'd ask...

Furthermore, I was thinking of creating a tournament without fixed schedule so each can play eachother, and with 8 skill-options open so all tiers are provided for - tier 1 will have to take dummy skills for 7th and 8th. Other things you'd recommend or I should be aware of?

Hi!

I've set up an EuroBowl 2018 Training group for all of you. It is here:

https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=group&op=view&group=11341

If BBBF is set up as a MetaGroup, once you all created a proper EuroBowl 2018 Trainig teams and applied them all to BBBF then you should be able to start a tournament for them. Make sure however that you do not set any custom rules for the tournament as it should not override the rules defined by the EuroBowl ruleset which is here for reference:

https://fumbbl.com/p/ruleset?id=724

Let me ask anyone who wants some EB2108 training to first join the P√°linkaBowl 3 FS tournament which is already set up for that. There is a great amount of work done into it which also made possible the above group to get made so fast and easy.

Kickoff on 12th March.

Note that as it was set up earlier, teams should get created exclusively for that tournament on the group page.

Interesting - you're asking for NAF numbers, are you uploading to the NAF database?

No but it could be useful to determine who gets the free ticket or discount on the tabletop event. Besides, it is for conformance with the official NAF tournaments.

Hey, big thanks man! I gave your tournament a quick look and I'll most likely sign up.

As I'm not a big programmer of sorts, this is really helpfull. I'll set up the Eurobowl-environment within the Belgian BloodBowl Federation (which is indeed a MetaGroup) according to your guidelines. Can I bother you should I encounter any further problems?

Hi, this is great!
But I have a question: how do you find games, there is no discord channel? or something else?
Or this group is not meant for open games, only to be used in private leagues?

Open play should be fine now.

You should apply your team to the EB training group.
You can see which coaches are online on the teams page: they have yellow buddy icon.

Demo: https://fumbbl.com/p/group?op=view&group=2533&p=teams

If there will be many members, we could set up a Discord channel.
