Spectate good players and have fun.

Also - seek out good players to play against for a bit. You will learn more and they will be more helpful on the whole Very Happy

Very new FUMBBL'er, and looking to learn. I've found the 145 club but, because life gets in the way, I'm not really able to set fixed times to play, meaning I'd miss scheduled fixtures.


I play 145 and basically never schedule games (playoffs/finals being the rare exception). The current season is quiet, but otherwise I just post in/respond to the matchmaking thread when I'm looking to play.

Ah, I thought it was a league that scheduled games each week. Might give it another look if it's less formal.

It is less formal as we always run an open league. That way you can get matches a little easier without the constraints of time. As long as there is someone to play of course Smile

Yeah, "league" is slightly misleading. "Informal play" is closer, possibly?

"Experienced" should be OK.

Is this a quiz? If so, I lose!^^


Possibly the rule about owning a copy of the board game?

While I'm sure I have read that somewhere, I just reread the rules and couldn't find that in the main section. Any idea where it might have moved to?

Also, I'm curious what rule the OP violated with his opening statement.

Update: doh, I found it. Although in my defense, it wasn't on the FUMBBL site rules page

Orcs are good regardless of league. Ranked is all about people picking teams they can stomp on. You can try playing in blackbox to get blind, fairly even matchups, and it's fairly gentle at first, but later on it can get really brutal.

I think that was a condition typed into use conditions for skijunkies bloodbowl client.

As for site rules, they are all over the place.
The important ones can't be found at one specific target area.
Only few are really important to remember.

1. Don't make multiple accounts
2. Give readable names to your players.
3. Don't name or say stuff that resembles swearing.
4. When you start a game you gotta finish it.
5. When you or your opponent leaves anyways for whatever reason you gotta find and follow the disconnection rules.
6. Don't play the same opponent in ranked repeatedly.
7. If you want to play friends or do crazy stuff, do it in League.
8. No pictures of females unless they are ugly.
9. If you want to use concessions, you should inform yourself about the legality of its particular cases.
10. If you want to use the time-out button you should inform yourself about the conditions of use.
11. Concessions are never legal in official tournaments.
12. If you fail to meet a deadline in a tournament, you need to pm the tournament administrator beforehand.

I've joined the 145 league (I think!), but can't figure out how to find games against players, any clues?

August is probably the quietest month on fumbbl as many people go on holiday etc... So 145 might be quiet at the moment I would probably just make a ranked team for now and learn by taking a few beatings Smile

Once your team is made use game finder to get games
