--><p>Its players are all busy - far too busy to attend any team training, hence the lack of rerolls. Playing, as they do, in dilapidated public parkland with not even a nearby hostelry to slake anyone's thirst, they understandably attract very few followers. Nevertheless - or perhaps because of this - this is Bloodbowl in its purest form.</p><!--
--><p>If you can play in this league then you may even find you're getting slightly better results at "normal" Bloodbowl games. Well, that's the theory. If nothing else it certainly forces you to do the safe stuff first ... and sacrifice to Nuffle before kick-off.</p><!--

<h4>Season II</h4><!--
--><p style='text-align: justify; margin: 0 auto;'>WDNNSR II (The Nightmare Continues) has kicked off with a minor tweak to scoring. I'll be operating a delayed forfeit system this season. While each round is seven days, I'll not be forcing forfeits until the NEXT round's deadline unless someone's been offline for 7 days or more. That allows everyone to take a week off if needed and still catch up.</p><!--
--><p><b>Whichever team finishes bottom at the end of the season will be relegated to join new coaches in next season's second division.</b></p><!--
--><h4>Season III</h4><!--
--><p style='text-align: justify; margin: 0 auto;'>If there's enough interest then Season III will add a second 8-team Qualifying division to WDNNSR. If you think you could add to the general <i>joie de vivre</i> of this group, please send me (Emrys) a PM. <b>Don't</b> create your team until you hear back as race allocation is random (see below for details).</p>
<p style='text-align: justify; margin: 0 auto;'>As usual, the races available will be those that haven't already been taken and there'll be another random draw to determine from which group each new coach gets to choose.</p>
<p>At the end of Season III the lowest scoring team in the Premier division will be relegated and replaced with the winner of the Qualifying division. Additionally, the 7th place team in the Premier division will play off against the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed Qualifying division teams in a seeded knockout competition (P.7th v Q.4th, Q.2nd v Q.3rd) with the winner playing in the Premier division in Season IV.</p><!--
--><p>There will be a starting TR cap of 125 for the Qualifying division but there will be <b>no</b> TR cap for the Premier division.</p>

No more than a third of the league (rounded up) can come from the Eeny, Meany or Miney categories. Initial categories were randomly allocated from which coaches choose their roster on a first reply, first dibs basis (or take a "Moh" roster instead, if preferred).

There'll be another draw for races for the new coaches who'll be forming Season III's Qualifying Division. The draw will be made once everyone's been recruited with priority being given to whoever applied first.

To save you thinking, the maxima are as follows:

This effectively means that your points for each game will be the double the TD difference for the game plus the number of casualties you caused, up to a maximum of +/-20 for TDs and +16 for Casualties.

Testing has shown that casualties caused by fouls and crowd-pushes ARE counted - and I'd like to "thank" bobafettsmum for discovering that crowd-pushes count. :-(
