Secret League comes to SWL*!

Rosters here

ShhhWL is an offshoot of the Southern Wastes League, also known as SWL. The ShhhWL aims to maintain the culture of SWL, as well as act as a supplemental league to SWL. To facilitate this, it will run with less rounds but longer deadlines. The current expectation is that games will be played on a 10-day deadline, to a maximum of three deadlines a month.

This league is all hush-hush like, with none of that official blessings or whatnot. We got some of them on the down-low, but this is an underground league. Stay quiet, stay secret.

The first rule of Secret Wastes League is: Don't talk about Secret Wastes League to the admins or their snoops.



*Certain exceptions apply

Racial Restrictions

ShhhWL bans certain teams that have been declared "unfun" and exceptionally powerful or simply limited to a playstyle that frustrates both players, but allows for a balance across other rosters that are considered competitive.

Unfun teams: Daemons of Khorne, Half Orcs, and Von Carstein

Challenging teams are those with unusual play styles, or which are especially reliant on good dice to be successful. These teams are not part of the tier system, and can be chosen independently at any time. The Challenging teams are: Araby, Clan Skyre, Daemons of Nurgle, Engineers, Gnome, Goblins, Halflings, Lumbira, Lybaras, Nautican, Ogres, Squig, Treemen, Vampires and Underworld Denizens.

Lumbria teams always be available due to their native habitat being the Southern Wastes.

The other teams are split into tiers, reflecting their potency. These may be adjusted in future as more data comes to light.

The ShhhWL recognises three major categories of teams: Rock (Bash) teams, Paper (Agi/Fast) teams, and Scissors (mixed-type) teams. With this in mind, these 3 archetypes will be balanced with each other to create a more 'even' field of play.

Players may choose teams in a laddered tier system. You may choose any Tier 2 or Tier 3 team, subject to team balance. Players who choose to do so should submit a draft list of at least five (5) teams in order of preference. However, to choose a Tier 1 team, you MUST choose at least one Tier 2 and one Tier 3 team for each Tier 1 team, with a minimum of five (5) teams. Players who choose to do so will then receive a random team from their selection.

This group operates within the ruleset ID: 303.
