Who'd have thought that it was the "High Elves" that would be locked out due to racial caps for so long... Razz

Welcome Arcade Smile

Jump into SWL Discord and say hi Smile

From the SWL Guide

Racial Restrictions
SWL celebrates the diversity inherent in the rosters available to the Blood Bowl coach. As such, SWL restricts the number of teams of any one race. This ‘cap’ is derived by taking the number of coaches in the league and dividing by the number of ‘competitive’ rosters (see below). Generally the cap is rounded UP to allow for greater diversity across the league. So for example, with 50 active coaches, the racial cap would be 3; 50 divided by 19 is 2.63, rounded up to 3.

The currently sanctioned rosters (24 in number) are split into two groups: Competitive and Challenging.

Competitive teams range from the ‘top tier’ (Skaven, Chaos, etc.) to those which can still be successful with some good coaching and a little luck (Khemri, Slann, etc.)

Challenging teams are those with unusual play styles, or which are especially reliant on good dice to be successful. The Challenging teams are: Goblins, Halflings, Ogres, Vampires and Underworld.

Challenging Teams are not counted for the purposes of determining the Racial cap balance for the league. No one will be forced to draft a Challenging team - simply list them at the bottom of your draft list if you do NOT wish to be assigned to Coach them


RSP Balance
SWL classifies the various rosters into a Rock-Scissor-Paper (RSP) format:

RSP Classification
ROCK: Chaos, Chaos Dwarf, Dwarf, Khemri, Nurgle, Orc.
SCISSORS: Amazon, Chaos Pact, Human, Lizardmen, Necromantic, Norse, Undead.
PAPER: Dark Elf, Elf, High Elf, Skaven, Slann, Wood Elf.
Dynamite teams are those remaining, namely: Goblin, Halfling, Ogre, Underworld and Vampire.

RSP Balance
At the time of the Draft, teams will be allocated according to:
1. Racial Caps (see above)
2. RSP balance (the desired ratio is 1:1:1)

SWL Season LXIX Round 7 Axe

Fun Police vs Steaked - forfeit to Steaked as Fun Police move to a new stadium. How many pit traps will the new place have?

And in bigger news, congrats to Coach Foad and the Glee Club on a hard fought 3 peat.
Ranks up there with the greatest of SWL dynasty's.
