The Southern Survivalists League is recruiting. We are a Sydney time zone league, so East Asia and Australasia mostly, but also some European and American coaches who can often manage our evenings, about server 1200 once every 10 days for five rounds.

We need all 24 teams, one of each, dished out at random, for a new season. This one kicks off on the 21st if we have 'em or not, and we finally have one of each not long after!**

Team draws are random when we have them.


In brief, the aim of SSL is to accumulate permanent injuries on a team and see how they handle despite them. No player retirements, secret weapon stars only, +1 to foul, spiked ball always in play, but PO was gone from here before it was from anywhere else. You also must take stats, because it is hilarious on injured players.

Stunties (including those Ogres) get a boost, with Sneaky Git to KO box, and Right Stuff cancels Tackle on blocks.

Full rules on the group page, along with our various fluff and records when they get updated.

Our past champions have been Wood Elves, Lizardmen*, Amazons, Necromantic Horror*, Amazons again, Norse, and rookie Khemri in S7. S8 the Vamps won it, yay me!

Currently needing no more coaches, draw complete and divisions kicked off.

Due dates are the 1st, 11th, and 21st of June, 1st and 11th of July, then a month off before Season 10.

Oh, speak up here, or PM jevouse, bigbullies, or me, tussock, if interested in joining us in the future. We have fairly regular need of new coaches. Cheers.

* some champion teams since retired.
** team availability updated as often as possible.

Updated, still need 2 coaches. Or probably 1 that likes Ogres enough to take them out of the draw for us. Very Happy

Also a discord server, SSL channel associated with SWL/CBBA/DIBBL, any questions easily answered there, or here, or in PMs. Cheers for reading.

Update.

New teams drawn, and the Ogres remain vacant. If anyone would like to take over the OGAR team in SSL, (4+ pickups for the ST 5, AV 9 ball carriers, gotta love it, not to mention all the injuries you deal out really are permanent!) then get onto this here, or PM tussock, jevouse, or bigbullies.

Or the chat, you know, whatever. Very Happy

Nice one, Joe, cheers. Very Happy

The draw is done.

Kzarik got the Renegades, mushoomy the Dwarfs, GrenDrake the Necromantic. Boriz picked up the Ogres later on, and we are away!

Oh, and there was a magic ticket draw, tribalsinner won it for his Goblins getting beaten up as they do, and chose to move his team to Paintree Rainforest, swapping at random with the Southwestern Sun Lizards. That might make them both quite happy.

Kickoff is on the way (and done!). Cheers all. Record updates in the works, finals on, etc, etc.

Season 8 player awards for good and ill, and also Long-term team recognition for the most stick-with-it squads, are up.

Vamps and Zons sitting on 10 perms, Norse and the returned Flings on 9, the old Pact left us on 8, Chaos and Human on 7, and everyone else 5 or less, and the new squads none yet! There's 76 in the league in total, it'd be nice to see that rise a bit. Very Happy

May I present the Survivalists Leagues' first Legend: Sarah Taylor Image

She rose to legendhood in fitting fashion: against backdrop of blood and perms in this massacre of a brave and horribly unlucky debutant pact team.

Long live Sarah, death is the only place to go now!

Sarah Taylor! Nice one moggie, that was ridiculously brutal with 0/5/1 cas caused, and the Apo fixed a perm back to MNG so only 2 armour breaks for the new boys. Won't be missing on out TD difference this season, eh.

Update! Our ogre coach has been found, we are now full, at least if everyone shows up. Thank you very much Boriz, and everyone else who's aiming for the long term glory of a team full of wonderfully injured bloodbowl players. I do believe we're up to 78 perms! Go the SSL, and here's me missing my MA 8 Vamp for the Cas Cup.

Update: it seems we need one more coach after all.

That was quick, but Shambling Undead are suddenly in need of a new coach, if anyone new wants in, you will get the Undead as it's all that's open.


Notes about Underworld being open where wholly exaggerated and I am relieved to remove them. Embarassed

For you newcomers you get to experience the survivalists joy of having some tooled up bunch of monsters give you a right kicking hopefully leading to your first permanents. One day this will be your honour to inflict those first crippling casualties on some other new team. Ah the scent of blood in the air once more.

Heads up that SSL/NSL is considering some format changes for later in the year.

The core of our league is that it's supposed to hurt a bit, the thing we are surviving, Nuffle's gifts are glorious and may sting a little. Playing here at all is a badge of ... something, new keyboards, rage, that slightly troubling schadenfreude when it's the other person's team getting wrecked and not yours.

We're looking to make that more true for the teams as a whole, help the old teams hurt a bit more regularly, get the younger teams up to having someone that it really pains them to get -ST on a bit quicker.

But don't get us wrong, we're not looking to be fair, this is about not being so soft any more on the big boys.

Though if we can find any other way to help the poor bloody stunty teams, we might just do that too.

--

Congrats to the Humans, by the way, Ravageport Ne'er–Do–Well's, that's a fine new -ST blitzer, bringing them up to 9 perms for the team after three brutal games in a row. Sneaky Gits OP. Very Happy

Hey, I remember this thread.

DustBunny's Jim Lahey Experience are to be congratulated on the smashing wins they got on the way to their 2nd league title. Without the NSL running to give us a Cas Cup game, that's as good as it gets. S9 Champions, Norse.

~~ Confetti ~~

The group page has been updated with a few baubles and notes of long service. Fauru of the Tanuki Terrors takes the Beatiful Medal for S9, our first stunty to take a title that big, and other than a fine selection of tripwires he found while crossing the line through the season would've easily set records there.

We're rushing to finalise some last minute things for the league, now that I remember it needs done, expect a PM very soon to enquire of your interest in continuance.

Anyone who'd like to join us, we often have need, you'll be dished out a random team from whoever leaves us, and get to take part in the meanest league on fumbbl. If it's on our pitch, it's trying to kill you, but that's OK, because the only way out ... IS DEATH. Twisted Evil
