Then you can select you skills. If you aren't suppposed to have a skill due to the ruleset, just choose "No Skill" on an unimportant player.
After that click on the group that you are joining.
Then you can join the tournament by clicking the "Apply for Membership" option (Red Circle). Your team wont show up straight away as it will need to be checked.
The last thing to do is to check the time the tournament starts in Server Time (Blue Circle) and be on the site 20 miniutes before the tournament starts. Not everyone is on discord and the way we check who is here and who is sleeping in is by site activity (Green Circle). If the tournament is ready to start and you are not active on the site, we may need to start without you.
-Message from 'goo
As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we are noting increasing numbers of NAF tournaments are being postponed or cancelled. Health and well-being comes first, and we support Tournament Organisers talking whatever steps they deem necessary with their events to keep people safe.
As we lose these tournaments from the calendar, members are asking us if we can fill the gap with increased Online NAF activity; either via TOs simply holding their events online, or via the NAF providing more tournaments for you to participate in. The former presents us with non-trivial administration, technical and practical issues, so starting on March 28, we will be running a number of ‘NAF Live’ tournaments on FUMBBL for an indefinite amount of time.
We will be reviewing the format and frequency of these tournaments as we go along, but to begin with, these tournaments aim to recreate the real life tournament feeling as best we can, and will run in parallel with existing Online NAF events. Further details:
- Tournaments will comprise 3-6 games of Swiss over 1-2 weekend days (Sat / Sun), with the next event taking place on May 2 & 3.
- Participants will be expected to play up to 3 games in a day according to a set, timed schedule. e.g. Game 1: 10:00, Game 2: 12:30, etc.
- Tournaments will take place in Oceanic, European and Americas time zones. All NAF members may participate, as per usual for Online NAF.
- Rulesets will be taken from postponed tournaments with clear and well written rulespacks, accessible via the NAF site. These rulespacks should be easily implemented on FUMBBL, so tournaments with heavy or unique, integral house-rules should not apply.
Following the successes of the previous NAF Live! events, our fifth event event will feature the ruleset from teh Danish Open, but if there is any sepcific ruleset that you would like to see recreated online, please contact Purplegoo via the NAF website. You should also make contact if you have a good working knowledge of FUMBBL and would like to assist in administering these temporary events for a short time, as with more tournaments comes more work for our team. Please assist if you can!
Many thanks, and stay safe.
Phil / Purplegoo.
