Hey everyone,

I'm new to FUMBBL but have been playing 'Blood Bowl 2' so I know the basics.

If I want to create a 'perpetual' team that I can keep playing, level up, not lose at the end of a league etc do I want to be in 'Blackbox' or 'Ranked'? what is the real difference between them? Can a team be enrolled in both?

Both are perpetual divisions.

R allows you to choose your opponents and all games are made via the gamefinder. Box does not, and games are scheduled every 15min through the blackbox scheduler. A team may not play in both R and B, but teams from either may meet each other in tournaments.

If you are quite new and are just looking to get some games in to learn how the client and everything works without worrying too much there is also a beginners league called the 145 Club. They have occasional tournaments and leagues for newer people. I think there's one that will actually be going soon. I'll find a link to the group page.

Also when it comes to Blackbox and Ranked most folks find it takes a long time to get to a decent win rate % because of a generally, strong coach level on fumbbl. Just try and enjoy it and learn as you go. 145 club is definitely worth trying, maybe along with Box and/or Ranked.
Writing a bit of player background or match reports etc as your team develops helps some folks keep an interest too.

And remember that it's a game where you can play the way you want !
You can make "win at all cost" teams, and on the opposite, you can make the team you are really fond of ! Like me and my https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=810578 !
Enjoy the freedom to test !

thanks guys, rolled up a team but havent had time to dedicate to a game yet.

I may have used up all my lucky dice rolls in Blood Bowl 2 tonight though. last turn of the game, Skink hits Kroxigor in the End Zone from mid-field for the game winning TD! (no pass/catch-related skills on either player) !!! Surprised

There's also plenty of various discord channels for groups and things on FUMBBL. Good place to find advice or look for games with people and keep up to date on events.

Create a Ranked team, go to Game/Gamefinder, Look for games with it and do not accept offers from Star coaches and above. Stick to Rookies, Experienced, and Veterans only as opponents at least for your first 50 games I would say.

So, I created a team and joined 145 league... I've waited half an hour for a game on 3 separate occasions with no luck.

Where do i go if i want to play other ~1000TV teams and actually find games regularly?
