NAFifa World Cup 2018
Are you excited about the FIFA world cup? But still rather wanna play Blood Bowl in the evenings? Because, well, it's Blood Bowl and it's way better than football!
Then I have the perfect event for you:

NAFifa World Cup 2018

Represent your nation in an everyone can join format where the 4 best results of every nation count towards the ranking and the best 4 players of the best 4 nations will battle it out for the NAFifa World Championship 2018! Even more, since this is a World cup, we're using the recently published rules from the 4th Blood Bowl World Cup 2019 in Dornbirn, Austria!

  1. Winner will get bragging rights, and maybe a T-shirt of the Thornpear Valleyshockers. But hey, it's all about bragging rights anyways!
  2. We are using the official 4th Blood Bowl World Cup 2019 in Dornbirn rules with 4 tiers with the 3 days split over 6 games.
  3. There are 6 rounds of Swiss in groups of around 30, top 4 nations qualify for the playoff
  4. Please state the nation you are playing for in your Bio (as well as your NAF number), Nations according to FIFA rules
  5. Round 1 will start at 22:00 CET (Fumbbl BB-Time) on Monday, 18.6.18
  6. Create your team here and apply it to the Online NAF group


All details are available in the NAFifa World Cup 2018 Rulespack

Big thanks to Christer for adding the (no skills) option, so no more dummy skills from now on.

Cheers,

Strider

Will the new stars be available?
Posted by bghandras on 2018-06-06 07:53:24
So, lets say someone is no1 after the swiss, but does not make the cut if his nation is not top4? Am i reading this right?
Posted by Strider84 on 2018-06-06 08:01:53
@Bghandras: correct.

@Wozzaa: i have the teams from adams naf aug 17 rosters. More details u can find in this forum post: https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=29738&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

Thx for organizing this event ! I expect it will be hard work for you.
Posted by Verminardo on 2018-06-06 13:49:59
At least this is a clean sport and nobody is corrupt!
Posted by Purplegoo on 2018-06-06 14:25:54
Very cool. I’ll dust off the mouse and try to remember how the client works for this one! :)
Posted by PeteW on 2018-06-06 15:03:19
Can we spend more cash on the starting roster, or are we stuck with 1100?
Posted by Strider84 on 2018-06-06 15:38:46
You can spend more, but not less. So you cant have 11 linebeards with all guard mb, but you can have a deathroller in the team up to 1160 but no skills in the first round
Posted by PeteW on 2018-06-06 17:03:41
Cool - thx.

Also, I looked at Adam's list of stars and I'm a bit confused.

As a more simple question - can we hire Karla Von Kill in the NAFifa?
Posted by SzieberthAdam on 2018-06-06 18:29:17
Sorry for being too technical with my poor english.

You get the most World Cup compliance with those rosters. All the new stars are available, but without icons despite my long ago campaign for them (See Forum/Customisation/BB2016 Icon Project). I know many groups around making icons regularly but we could not manage to make those handful official ones. I think it is sad but whatever. So you get Karla von Kill, yes.

Here are the rosters:
https://fumbbl.com/p/ruleset?id=7

Read the World cup rules, design your team according to that without spending more or setting other skills than is allowed to your tier and remember to only buy those inducements which you picked when you play.

One extra thing: I resolve stat upgrades by hand so contact me if you want stat upgrade for your team.

I forgot to mention that due to FUMBBL limitations, Swoop skill missing for Goblin Doom Diver and was replaced with Sure Feet, Pro; also Monstrous Mouth is unavailable for Guffle Pusmaw and was replaced with Sure Hands, Catch. Also, Swift reaction is not working for the Swift twins (would loose Loner if the other got injured).

I'm a bit confused about the "skill slot available" part... Or maybe not.

So a tier 1 team has 40k available for day 2, but can only pick one normal or one double skill(if this wasn't picked for day 1)?
Posted by Strider84 on 2018-06-07 11:53:51
They can pick 2 normals or 1 double if not yet picked (while wasting 10k)
Posted by jonno on 2018-06-07 12:01:47
Then I don't understand this. "Day 2: 1 normal 2 double"

Posted by PeteW on 2018-06-07 17:12:05
It just gives you flexibility.

Tier 4 get 70k on Day 2, so they could take 3 normals, 2 normals and a double, or 2 doubles and a blank slot.

For Tier 1, you just have to pick a lot of blank slots!!!
Posted by SzieberthAdam on 2018-06-07 18:37:16
Yep, skill options has to cover all tiers' possibilities. Tier4 can spend 150k on skills in Day 1 which can be a maximum of 5 doubles or 7 normals hence the Day 1 settings (5 doubles and 2 normals) to allow any setups. A normal skill can be easily set for a double slot. Similarly a Tier 4 can get two doubles or three normals for day 2 and one double or two normals on day three.

Christer made a No Skill pick available which let you a lot easier to skip a skill pick.

For stat upgrades you have to contact Strider84 or me. Here is a team which has a +AG set already. It is written in the team bio which is required as if you go check the team options you will see an empty box next to the player who has the stat upgrade.

Posted by sebco on 2018-06-07 19:49:25
Concerning sup skills, it is written "round 1" "round 2" "round 5".
Shouldn't it be written "round 1" "round 3" "round 5" ?

Furthermore, concerning regular season before play-offs, it is written that there will be many groups of 30+ teams like in previous NAF online tournaments. As play-offs qualifications rules are really different for this tournament (not the first teams of each group will qualify but the 4 first coachs of 4 first nations), shouldn't we all be in the same group? Shouldn't it be simpler / more fair ?

Anyway, thanks a lot for this already exciting tournament!
Posted by Strider84 on 2018-06-07 23:36:47
The round 2 instead of 3 is to cover the ongoing danish open. I'll change it before the world cup starts.

The groups is a fair point. We used to have different admins for different groups but ill have a look when i see the number of participants
Posted by PeteW on 2018-06-08 10:49:05
That Halfling team is spending 230k on their Karla. She normally only costs 220k.
Posted by SzieberthAdam on 2018-06-08 12:04:08
Thanks, nice catch, I will notify the coach.
