2000 TV Flings in the Black Box Challenge
I will donate $100 to Fumbbl once a Halfling teams grows to 2000 TV in the box.



Rules:


To keep people from meta-gaming the following caps are in place, once that team is ready to be judged:

5 Rerolls
1 cheerleader
1 assistant coach

Also, any concession rate over 10% results in disqualification.

Is this the basis of your Doctorate paper? Engineering the Box to be a safer, friendlier place?
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 19:51:13
Haha.

I don't think they would let me out of law school if I did that.

It's actually on the federal laws relating to the education of autistic children.
Posted by PainState on 2014-10-20 20:06:16
So based on the Caps in place.

You max that out.

So your baseline TV is 1030

Full roster: 660
5 X Rerolls: 300
Apoth/cheer/AC: 70

So you need 970 TV in skills:

49 X Normal skill ups.

Or combo of doubles/+ stats

So probally around 30 Normal skill ups and the +Stats/Doubles covering the rest.


Very tall order for flings.
Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 20:11:27
no one said perfection (or $100) would be easy!

Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 20:11:58
also you forgot 9 TV from FF *ahaahahahahahahahahahhhhahahahaha* cos yeah
Posted by PainState on 2014-10-20 20:13:21
That is true...I forgot the TV from FF...So much easier now.
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 20:15:55
I think you'll have 2 legend trees.

Make sure to score with everyone to run the skills up.

It's doable.

Certainly not easy. But it is doable.
Posted by JimmyFantastic on 2014-10-20 20:20:28
Yeah it's doable in ranked certainly. Just need a lunatic to do it in box !
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 20:22:40
Jimmy, when this happens, you must bow to him as your new sensei!
Posted by WhatBall on 2014-10-20 20:27:04
If Azure (https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=665796) loads up with 3 more RRs (18) and cheer/assistant (20) he is on 1800. Needs 10 more regular skills, or a combination of skills with doubles/stats/FF.

Anyone else close?
Posted by PainState on 2014-10-20 20:28:13
I think the key to this challenge is found here.

You have to build up slow, get that treasury over 1 million gold.

Once you hit that 1500+ TV range things are going to get really tough. You need that 1+ million gold because in the Box it is TV match making. You are going to run into a lot of 1500+ TV matches were you get no inducement money or giving it out.

You need to look at the team you are matched up against and buy the chef every time you see a team running with 3 or less Rerolls. You need cash for that can last over the long haul.

All it takes is one or two matches in a short period that you lose treemen or those 2 flings who managed to get to 76+ SPP to seriously set you back.
Posted by Strider84 on 2014-10-20 20:31:01
I might give it a go
Posted by Zed on 2014-10-20 21:04:21
you accept only new teams or what ?
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 21:15:54
Nope.

Just get to 2000 TV with the guidelines mentioned.

Old & new are welcome.
Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 21:27:06
meh

game 1 was much fun vs a fun coach

game 2 sucked balls, vs a silent slow coach who stalled vs 3 flings and fouled every turn. still, we did score vs him when we had 3 flings on the pitch, and with the ball carrier surrounded by 8 mens (-3d blitz, push/push/push, dodge, dodge, run score. stick it!

this is going to be a grind
Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 21:48:17
game #3 --- fling on fling action!!!

woot
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 21:52:21
pythrr is a machine!
Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 23:01:02
game #4 -- some lammer italian chaos.

yay. another silent slow game.... :(
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-20 23:32:51
I'll keep cheering for you.

But yes, silent opponents are lame!!!
Posted by pythrr on 2014-10-20 23:39:42

I'm good luck in every team. Everyone should have one of me.

https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=9935647

Why have a concession rule Bill? Concessions are for sissys. No Sissy would try this challenge.
Posted by BillBrasky on 2014-10-21 01:11:32
Keggie, I just put it in there to keep people from doing mass concessions & pimping their team. Always think worst case scenario.
Posted by koadah on 2014-10-21 01:26:05
Come on you flings

Posted by Village_Idiot on 2014-10-21 02:24:57
Hmmm. Prob start with only flings to reduce the cost of the losses of the initial 200 games. Likely crank rerolls to 8 and/or get max cheerleaders+asst. coaches, then fire em all when you're in range of the finish line.
Wrestle on 3 halflings who get LOS duty, then spend the rest of the team denying hits.
Forget about scoring, too expensive.
Use incentives to get more APOs, protect players with stat increases.
Spam Wrestle and PO since they'll keep your flings the healthiest. Can only foul 1 downed target per turn, and once you've wrestled or POd, you can't get blocked or blitzed.
Once you have some safeguards, start scoring.

How hard can it be?

Lots of lame dorf coaches voting lately.

How is moar flings in the box less than a 6?

How is me donating money to the site you use not a 6?

Answer: Douche hipsters!

Less than a 5 (I'll give wiggle room) and you need to rethink the fact that you are on this site.
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-10-22 02:30:43
I am Stoned, but I do not fold the cuff of my Jeans up. W00T! I needed a reason to play Flings again so this is sweet/ awesome. Too bad all of the Lammers out there will be rolling up the cuff of their jeans and entering non Flings to pick on us manly men. Is lammers spelt with 1 M (lamers) or two?
Posted by ImpactedAnimal on 2014-12-22 12:36:11
My fling team has had their first match - a 3-0 loss to chaos, no great feats accomplished so far other than mainly a lot of falling down though 1 treeman seriously injured a bm and the other got mvp for looking mean as he took root ;)

spps picked up 7...

oh yeaaaah flings oh yeah :)

what will match day 2 hold in store?
Posted by ImpactedAnimal on 2014-12-23 15:55:34
MAtch day two lost 2-0 to chorfs after what seemed like the smallest chance of breaking through and drawing 1-1 was denied - however, internet router, the tech savvy treeman levelled up after killing a bull centair - 1 skill done - tv 1020! woohoo :)
