so, Q: what happens if one of yr teams get battering game 1, down to 860 TV, which means that they are unlikely to EVER get drawn against another team again. can this team be replaced, or am I effectilvely reduced to 4 teams now for the BBT?


Got tv 910 gobbos for those.


Quite some teams will face that issue. It should work out sooner or later. Especially when you also use brawls.

It looks like it was the first time in months that the number of box games equaled ranked matches. It would be great if this continues for a while.

Time to ask the stupid question; what is a Brawl?

Great and fun idea, should revitalise the Box a bit too. However I think 40 games per team is way too many, that's about a game a day. Personally I'd love to enter this but with a busy job and young family to look after I haven't got a hope in hell of getting anywhere near 200 games by September, so sadly there's no point entering for me Sad There are many middle-aged guys in the Fumbbl community in a similar position. I reckon if you reduced the number of required games you'd greatly increase participation? Why set the bar so high? Still, great idea though Wink

Lyracian has understood how to name teams for this. Nice job.

Why not enter and see where you get? The idea to get people to play more in the Box which does seem to be working. I managed to play 6 games today with my new teams.

*scratches.head* May have already been said -- but is there any chance the automated team calculator is counting Underworld as 0 points instead of as 1? (I have 2.5 bonus points I can't account for... and looking at some of the other coaches, the only thing I can figure is Underworld is being 'undervalued'.)

You are the greatest Amazon player in Steel Trophy Box history thus far. Wink


Hence the additional 2.5pts

PS worth pointing out that if two coaches are tied both get 2.5pts

*blink* *choke* Ah. Thank you. That possibility didn't even occur to me. Thank you. Well, THAT certainly won't last long. Smile

Mini Hijack/Shameless Self Promotion:

If your Steel Trophy teams include any of the four varieties of elves, you're invited to join the E.L.F. with any and all of them. Our 57th season begins Nov 6th. Here's some more info if you're interested in double dipping with another Meta Group: A Very Steely Setup - E.L.F. Season LVII.

I may have overlooked it if it's been mentioned already, but many of those 0, 1 & 2 point teams could also join the ARR! or Human League Premiership.

These other Meta Groups offer a great set of short-term goals to keep you interested during an otherwise really long endeavor as both have seasons lasting about 2 months that alternate the months in which they begin and end.
