Howdy Ho, American Timezone FUMBBLers! By now, the rumors are spreading like wildfire, to even the most remote corners of the Old World. The bestest of the best leagues on FUMBBL, Secret League Americas, presided over by the great Slann Necromancer, Sloss-ti, is now recruiting for its 9th season!

Do you like the sound of hunting for lost treasures in the Lustrian jungle and facing off against the biggest, baddest Secret League teams in the Old World? Do you like the sound of being chased through the sweaty, humid jungles by scores of scantily-clad Amazonian females? Do you like the sound of being tied up and whipped to within an inch of your life by merciless daemonettes of Slaanesh?

If you like the sound of all that, then Secret League Americas is the place for you!

Season 8 concluded a couple of weeks ago, with Sigmar1's Daemons of Slaanesh, Ecstasy and Agony defeating Kzarik's Clan Eshin, Shadow Horde, to take the famed Crown of the New World for the second season running. There is a new boss in town, and they like leather and whips, oh yeah!

It has now been two seasons since our all-time greatest champion (4-times league winner), MrNomad's SL Shogun, have tasted the sweet nectar of victory. They will be hungry this season, but the question is ... will you be hungrier?

SLA is a round robin league that runs on a weekly schedule. It's open to any coaches who will be available to play in most American timezone evenings (about 00:00 - 07:00 bbtime). The divisional structure tends to be flexible, depending on how many teams we have. Last season, we had 24 teams in 2 divisions of 12 each (Upper and Lower TW). In past seasons, we have had 3 divisions, and I will try to go for that, if possible and the TW-spread allows. We will always make space for any and all teams that apply. That's right! There is no upper limit to how many teams can play in SLA! Smile

Following the round-robin phase, SLA typically concludes with a final knockout playoff tournament to determine the overall league winner. Last season, the top 5 from the Upper Division and the top 3 from the Lower Division made it to the final.

And (as if that wasn't enough), we also have a plethora of awesome player prizes and lost treasures that can be won, for those that dare to brave the hazards of the Lustrian jungle (check out the booty tab on the league group page).

How to apply:

Established SLA coaches from last season: please confirm by posting in this thread if you are in for Season 9, with which team you are going to be playing, and which coast you prefer (in case we do a split).

For new coaches that want to join SLA: please post here, stating which team you intend to play. Note that only 1 team of each race is allowed in SLA (I will post the currently-taken teams in a list near the start of this thread). You will be starting off in a Lower Tier division, so you won't have to face the high-TV abominations right away. (You can find more information on the SLA group page, by clicking on the banner at the top of this post).

I will aim to kick off Season 9 as soon as we have a good number of teams ready and willing to play, hopefully early next week.

As Sloss-ti always says: "The early frog catches the fly!" Wink

I'll be carrying on with my Lahmia team from last season (the ones that got smacked up by Sigmar's Slaanesh in the first round of the playoffs). East Coast!

Man, I was going to try a new team for Season 8...but then I won Season 7. So I had to bring back the champs. Now they've won again. Guess I have to bring them back for at least one more. Ecstasy and Agony will return, even though Season 8 took out 2 of my best players.
