Let's face it, we are a bit pampered here on Fumbbl. We have forums, announcements, blogs, groups, news and discord. Because of this it's really easy to not look outside of it.

However, for people playing BB2 and TT, you have no choice other than to use social media and online platforms to find people.

What i want to create is a 'one stop shop' for all the alternative ways of advertising/sharing your league, tournaments, legend snotlings (showing off), podcasts, replays etc that are related to Fumbbl.

Once we have it in place, all you need to do is open this post, then open tabs to the relevant groups where you'd like to share your content.

There's going to be around 30,000+ coaches out in the online world who likely don't know Fumbbl or have not played on it for a long time. Remember that table top is having a resurgence and Bloodbowl is becoming more popular than ever. Many of these coaches would love the opportunity to play on the best online emulation of blood-bowl, with a friendly community, NAF Tournaments, a passionate founder, up to date rules and some of the best players in the world.

Below is a list of sources that I know. It would be great if people could share other links and I can update this post while accrediting the posters!


Useful points to consider for links:


*That it is a public group (anyone within reason can join or become a member)
*Bloodbowl focused
*Friendly to sharing content (For example, if it's a BB2 focused group, it would be best we get permission off the group owner first)


Large global groups:

Reddit:

10,000+ members
www.reddit.com/r/bloodbowl

NAF: (You need to be a member) 27,000+ member

Many many more?

If this goes to plan and picks up, then I think I can make a good case with the mods to get this as a sticky thread in the League and Tournament forums.

More importantly, this will bring new people to Fumbbl.

Share your thoughts.

The 145 discord is where coaches new to Blood Bowl can discuss strategies, player skills, and arrange matches (on FUMBBL) with other new coaches in a friendly environment.

Updated it, any US coaches able to help? US side of Fumbbl has suffered the most from what I hear? If we can get more Fumbbl chat among the US table top players, i'm sure we can get a resurgence.

Maybe add a description for some links? 145 club means something to me but not to everyone.

It's a fair point. The idea of the list is to give people guidance on where they can share content. But it's also just generally a useful resource for people wanting to learn more or find local players. Will work on it!

two more facebook groups:
New Zealand: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NZBBC/
Australia: https://www.facebook.com/groups/154697938066506/
(I think both are closed groups - but anyone can apply to join)

How long since this topic has been updated?: https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=23313

Updated! Thanks.

Many people posting about Fumbbl on there? With such a small community might be an easy to way to get more people on the box Smile

We have our advocates. Small steps, get them into the League community, let the addiction take care of the rest. Timezones means League is often the most feasible option. League play is still fumbbl play. The health of the site doesn't rest solely on R&B.
