Das Waterbowl Rules:
1. Deadlines / Rounds:
You have 14 days to get your game for the current round played. However, as soon as all games in your division for the current round have been played the 14-day period starts running.
In all divisions we will have a two rounds season meaning you will get to play each team in your division twice.
2. Relegation / Promotion:
3. Bargaining Agreement:
We play with a Bargaining Agreement for each season and division (except top division Funkyzeit!. Its purpose is to prevent too big TV differences within a division. The Bargaining Agreement is implemented in form of a TV cap meaning right after your last divisional match (or your promotion/relegation match, see above) you have to trim your team's team value to a given maximum value for the division you'll be playing in next season.
For purposes of salary cap your current treasury is added to your TW (tournament weight - this includes your mng players) on a 1-on-1 basis. For example: Your TW is 1.300k and you have a treasury of 50.000 than your TW is considered as if it was 1.350k for salary cap calculations.
The Bargaining Agreement for season 8 is as follows:
The Bargaining Agreement for season 9 is as follows:
4. Restarting / Dropping out:
If your team has been pounded and you feel you need to change it after the season has started, you may do this once per season. Your new team keeps the winning record and points of your abandoned team but pays for restarting with a penalty of 3 points (and a win from your record) which will be subtracted immediately.
If you restart at the end of a season, your new team begins in the bottom division (currently Ach Nein!) at the start of the next season.
If you decide to take a season (or longer) out, then you must start with a new team when you return. You will start in the bottom division (currently Ach Nein!).
5. Game options:
Currently we play with no game options.
The board of league commissioners may opt to change that but won't do so during a running season.
Das Waterbowl is a scheduled league brought to you (unsurprisingly) by the Waterbowl, Manchester's home to all things bloodbowl.
Currently we have three divisions: Funkyzeit! (top division), Pech!, and Ach Nein! (parallel divisions). Each division consists of 5 or 6 teams that play each other twice each season. Rounds run to fortnightly deadlines. We play in European timezones.
After a season has ended there may be some sort of "friendly games" or "build up" games for brand new teams. This will be decided by the board of league commissioners and announced via pm.
If you are interested in joining please get in touch with the league commissioners (see "staff").
