We will soon be beginning the new season of the Xenophobes Federated Leagues.

This is a mixed Ranked & Blackbox minor & qualifying tournament for the 'Masters' (see below). Each coach may enter one team of each race if they wish, or teams of any one or two races from those listed.

Over the course of the season all races will take part but please only apply with those races currently listed. The season will take several months to complete as we run only three races in each round.

They are run as KO Cup style tournaments & there is no limit to how many coaches may enter. Last season we had between 16 & 38 teams per race.

No limit to TR or TW is used so you may enter a Rookie team or a 1000 game Legend team! As no seeding is used either, you could find yourself using or playing against a lot of inducements.

At the end of the season we run a 'Masters' series which is a Fumbbl Major tournament where the winner of each qualifier has the chance to be best of the best, & receive a magnificent prize!
Should any winners be unable to play beaten finalists will be offered the chance to play instead. The Masters runs as 2 groups in a Swiss tournament followed by a KO tournament between the top two teams of each Swiss group. There has been some discussion about the length of the Swiss stage of the tournament which may be 3 or 4 rounds. More news when a decision has been made.

For this season we will plan to start one round every four weeks (with the possible exception of Christmas when the admins will probably be too intoxicated to run them) & have all rounds complete so the 'Masters' can be fitted into Fumbbl's tournament schedule later in 2518.

Watch this thread for news.

Consider the luck of the draw in a group stage where you dont play every opponent but get to play goblin, halfling and similar. This is not much of a competition in my opinion.

Considering it's Swiss, you get that during round 1, but not continuously throughout the masters. If so, then some stunty teams are genuinely kicking butt! (and should rightfully feel good, and worry at the same time about their next opponent)

50 teams so far a few more would be good. 64 sounds like a nice number, see what you can do!

Luckily for me no race I have a serious or XFL team for has been drawn this time. No entry in busy times - but I'll be there in the future. Smile

62 teams now but plenty of space for more.
Edit.
Now have 69 so let's make it 72 as I like round numbers!

Last call for the XFL express, catch it now or you'll have to wait for the next one.
