Suomiliigan kausi 11.
Kausi 10 saatiin päätökseen ja voittajaksi selviytyi kaaoskääpiöiden koitoksesta Porkfest joukkueella Chaosbullstars. Prodigal_sonin Vulpes Corvum antoi kovan vastuksen, mutta se ei tällä kertaa riittänyt nappaamaan kolmatta mestaruutta.


Suomiliigan 11. kausi alkaa 18.3. klo. 21.00. Sitä ennen wanhat jengit on re-draftattava. Saa osallistua uudella tai wanhalla jengillä ja ne on liitettävä liigan sivulle kauden alkuun mennessä.


Kaikki uudet ja wanhat, suomalaiset ja suomessa asuvat coutsit, ovat tervetulleet mukaan!

Green Dukes Fall in Devastating 3-0 Loss to Hampton Pie-Rats


Green Dukes Fall in Devastating 3-0 Loss to Hampton Pie-Rats

The Duqueswood University Green Dukes suffered their first major set back of the NCBB Season 44 in a costly 3-0 shutout vs. the Hamton Pie Rats underworld squad. In addition to giving up 2 TDs to junior gutter runner Velk Highrunner and 1 TD to sophomore tight end clan rat Khunq Cindermaul, Duqueswood sustained three casualties on the day, including the death of senior thrower Elehorn Oakhand (quantitative rootconomics).

“He’s gonna be tough to replace,” said Green Dukes Coach Gerric Smithson on the loss of Oakhand, who led the team with 9 career completions. “But you know the refrain around here. It’s next elf up.”

The game got off to a promising start for Duqueswood when junior thrower Bryden Branch (quantitative rootconomics) flipped the ball to sophomore catcher Scootyr Spinleaf (undecided) near midfield after receiving the opening kick. Some solid blocking along the southern sideline, including freshman wardancer Bixtyr Brightwing (magical leaf studies) stomping Pie Rat snotling Migga into the turf, cleared a path for Spinleaf for what looked to be an early TD.

However, sophomore catcher Gladryl Stormfoot (history of dirt), who needed to protect the backside on the play, missed his assignment. Intimidated by the claws on the Pie Rats best tackler, junior skaven blitzer Kritch Emberwalker, Stormfoot failed to engage on the block, standing back from Emberwalker, closing his eyes, and hoping to screen the backside blitz.

“I told these guys over and over in practice, we can’t rely on ‘hoping’ for our blocks,” Smithson said after the game. “You know the old saying, ‘hope in one hand, crap in the other, and see which fills up first.’ Well, apparently, that doesn’t make sense to wood elves, because there’s a long practice among them of defecating in their own hand and carrying it to the Eastern Wastes so as not to ‘despoil the forest.’ Who knew, right? Always learning something new with this squad.”


Gladryl Stormfoot fails to make a key block during the Green Dukes opening drive because of his fear of Kritch Emberwalker’s claws. Said Stormfoot after the game, “I thought the creatures had paws, not claws.”

By failing to make the block, Stormfoot left an opening for Emberwalker to easily dodge through and chase down Spinleaf. The skaven blitzer then made the tackle, clawing a huge gash in Spinleaf’s arm that helped to free the ball.

The teams spent most of the rest of the half fighting over the ball deep in Pie Rat territory, and the Green Dukes had a chance to salvage the drive, when freshman lineman Ganderly Truegrass (tree bark studies) shoved Emberwalker into the ball, and it bounced to the edge of the goal line. Branch spun away from the scrum and then tried to reach between Highrunner’s legs to scoop the ball up and dodge away for the touchdown.

Highrunner, however, knocked the ball away with his tail, and the Pie Rats two-headed junior thrower Quagreetch Featherclaw easily grabbed it. Sprinting to midfield, Featherclaw flipped the ball to Cindermaul who easily broke into to the clear to put the Pie Rats up 1-0 at the end of the first half.


Featherclaw is able to look both before him and behind him as he flips the ball forward to Cindermaul for the opening score

Perhaps more costly than the score was the action trailing the play as Emberwalker took down Spinleaf earlier in the half. Unlike Stormfoot, Oakhand made the block he was required to make to keep Spinleaf from being chased down from behind. Unfortunately, the player Oakhand was blocking was Varag Ghoul-Chewer, whom Hampton had hired for the day.

Though Oakhand kept Ghoul-Chewer from the ball carrier, he mainly did so by getting his throat in the way of the massive orc’s hand, which proceeded to rip out the wood elf’s larynx. As Oakhand lay bleeding out on the sideline, the Duqueswood apothecary stepped forward, but Coach Smithson signaled him to sit down. “Looks like there’s no saving him. He’s uh … already fully dead,” Smithson said, despite the fact that Oakhand continued to gasp for air, and his body didn’t stop bleeding and go still until the beginning of the second half.

Down 1-0 without the ball at the start of the second half, the Green Dukes grew desperate early on defense, and their aggressive cage leaping and blitzing soon led to all but 5 players being KO’d or injured. Hampton took advantage, and found paydirt twice in the second half on long runs by Highrunner, who led all players with 32 yards rushing on the day.


Highrunner blazes a path toward one of his two second-half TDs

“It’s tough when you get down early like that,” said Coach Smithson during the postgame press conference. “Sometimes the harder you try to clean up the mess you made, the more of a mess you make. In that way, I guess that is kind of like taking a crap in your own hand. Hey, maybe I’ll use the metaphor that way for the fellas from now on.”

All Stars Anniversary Bowl - 13th March
\

Greeting Coaches,

You are all cordially invited to compete in the All Stars Anniversary Bowl.

This event is hosted by yours truly to commemorate my nineteen (19) years on this august and exemplary site.
It kicks off Wednesday 13th March! Sing it loud!

This is a KO tournament using BB2020 rules.

All teams that compete must be created from the All Stars roster.
Create a team here.
Sign them up HERE.



Your team must include at least one Average Joe (who won the lottery to play with the stars).
The rest will all be stars!

The roster uses Nelphine's Star Pricing.
To help meet this exorbitant cost, several soverign wealth funds have contributed to grant each coach 4,000,000GP to build their team.

Some stars from around the world may bear more than a passing resemblance to stars that you already know and love (or hate).
So, it may appear that Stars are playing for both sides.
They may also be induced. Four Morgs on the field?

With "Two-for-one" stars like Grak & Crumbleberry you need to add them both to your roster.

Please sign your teams up at this group.

Once you have signed up, please post a link to your team here.

Look for warm up games on Gamefinder or on Fumbbl Discord #lfg.

Nuffle League: We have more spots open! Come check out the chaos!

Greetings coaches!

I am proud to present an updated and more chaotic version of the Nuffle League, back from the grave!

What is the Nuffle league you ask? Well it is different from anything you have ever played before on this site.

This will be using the 2016 skill rolls, but the 2020 game rules.

Are your games getting boring? Tired of playing Elves after Elves after Elves (Switch with any team you play against over and over)? Do you want to see a team full of odd misfits thrown together under one coach? Do you want to see a mixed team with the most agile players being dwarves? This is the place for those fantasies!


The Nuffle League features every single player currently on any roster on Fumbbl. This includes the regular teams, the secondary teams (Brettonia, Simyin, and Slann), the Stunty Teams, the Secret League Teams, CIBBL Modified Players - including their very own Carnival of Chaos, Relic Slann, and Blood Naga teams, along with some other more obscure teams with a ton of flavor, fluff, and fancy icons. In the past, we have had 616 players, but now, there are currently 1027 different positionals that could end up on your team!


How do they get on your team? This is a Nuffle League after all, and Nuffle will show its fangs or feathers or flesh or whatever Nuffle chooses to have this day, and it is always a toss up. Nuffle will assign you your team. Your team is rolled randomly for 11 players from that list of 1027 players. This league is all about balance around the lack of balance. Your starting team value will be the highest TV in the league at the start of the season, with a starting reroll, apothecary, and 3 dedicated fans, it gives you some breathing room to create a good team.


If you are interested, please let me know and we will have Nuffle work their magic and get you a team all set up and ready to go. It does test your knowledge of the game as you will see everything, and probably some things you have never seen before.


We have players from both the US and European Time Zones. We are playing bi-weekly, 14 day roll overs. We are working on creating a US League and an European League if we can get enough players for both.

Advertisements:

XpherAndTheAxes: It's like ForemoleTrashMouse is handing out Shrooms and random Figurines and telling us to play Blood Bowl

The Demon: There isn't a league like it. I play in a lot of leagues, and every league is different. Its uniqueness makes it amazing! Bow down to Foremole TrashMouse!


Carlo Pellegattti (Luca): The league concept is so cool it's weird it was not a thing before you came!


Wintergreen13: So excited to get my Nuffle League team going again! Love this league!



Here is our Discord which is what we use for our primary mode of communication: https://discord.gg/uQfjnkK5Uh


There is just one last question... Will Nuffle favor you?

DOTP looking for mid season player
Hi all,

if you missed out on the relaunch of DOTP last year, this might be your lucky day. We have had a space open up coming into the remaining few weeks of the season. if you can play in EU time zones and you want to get involved in the action please drop me a DM.

Why join midseason?
Our league allows you to keep the same team every season if you want to, so this gives you the opportunity to start earning SPP ahead of our next season.

What makes DOTP Unique?
There are 2 things that I feel make us unique

1. No retirement, during the season teams are not allowed to retire injured or maimed players, they must go on until they die. Sounds awful and it can be, but my last game was pretty much won by a ST bust rotter :D

2. Bounty system - players can use their gold to place bounties on other players.


We do have a website but it needs updating heavily - https://deathonthepitch.co.uk/

We have 3 rounds left before the end of the season, please drop me a DM Asap if you are interested.

FUMBBL League News 18 Feb 2024
2024 2 18
All the league news fit to print and then some!

Compiled from across FUMBBL, this is all the news that's come to my little furry ears. If you know more that is going on, please let razmus know so he can add it to the next edition, which should be early March. Trying to pull in as much of what's going on around FUMBBL so folks can find even more ways not to get all their real-life work done.

The census says that there are 899 distinct, active coaches on FUMBBL who play in leagues. Two numbers are given for the range of the league size, because 'active coaches in a league' is a poorly defined descriptor. When the numbers are very different - the league is likely in flux, have some deadwood teams/coaches in their locker rooms, or be at the start or end of a cycle/season (when there's usually a lot of inactive coaches watching the playoffs). Numbers very close together should be pretty close to the 'actual' active coach population (whatever that means) for the group.


I wanna play now!! Which leagues should I look at?

These are the

Current statusEt tu Grak? is the current season for 145 which just started and runs until the Ides of March -- and the season honors those star players who let us down at critical moments of the game. 145 Box Challenge is a way of encouraging 145 players into the wider site, for the more experienced 145 players since you will play concurrent with the Blackbox Trophy.
Next stepsIf you're new to FUMBBL or Blood Bowl, jump in at your leisure. Efforts are being made to make it easier for folks to join with minimal wait and to make it easier to find appropriate opponents.
To contactdentface for even more information, razmus's 145 FAQ might answer a few questions, and stop by the 145 Club Discord to chat with folks.

The fun Summer tournaments will be coming up soon enough. Contact C0ddlefish and/or join them on the SL Discord in their own section.

Open Play Environments
Open play environments are places where teams can be built to play against other teams in the same environment, usually without scheduling the game, although many open environment also offer their own activities for teams to compete against one another if the coaches wish to participate.

RulesBB2020 - using the latest rules available. No Mega-stars.
ActivityVery high activity. This is the primary activity on FUMBBL
To playMake a team from your Coaches page for the Competitive division and put them in Gamefinder, or activate teams in the Black Box (also now within gamefinder) or seek games on the FUMBBL Discord (the last is more popular with people seeking those last few games to fill a grid.) Be aware that the box random scheduler now separates virtual season one teams from everyone else.
ActivitiesRoyal Rookie Rumble for new teams. (Recruiting 24/7!)
Brawls for any Competitive team. Brackets break at 1400 and 1800. Stopped ejecting teams in queue for a mere month, but the window for a Highbie Brawl has now passed.
Minors will have a BIG one on 21 February for teams capped at 1890tv. In addition, the XFL divisions for chorfs, necro, ogre, and elf union drew on 7 February! The next XFL groups will be Chaos Renegades, Dark Elves, Undead, and Norse and draw on 3 April (applications accepted starting 20 March.)
Major Tournaments spread out across the year, each with their own requirements and some with qualifier tournaments. The Warpstone Open for teams which make it thru the qualifiers or were chosen by the lottery. The Ulthuan Invitation is coming in March!


RulesBB2020 with custom rosters. (No Mega-stars to mirror Competitive envionment.)
ActivitySome.
To playMake a team from the group above (or from your coaches page in the "League","Secret League 2020" division). Put them in Gamefinder or seek games on the Secret League Discord
ActivitiesOld World Rookie Rumble for new teams. Just need two more for the next Rumble.

Other tournaments to start when Seasons enabled on FUMBBL.


RulesBB2020, low competitive. (no Mega-Stars)
ActivitySome, fairly consistent.
To playCreate a team from the link on the Chillax group page, and make them available in gamefinder.
ActivitiesOngoing sprint seasons, just so there are numbers to watch. Really the environment is just an excuse to play games, so get to it.


Open League
RulesBB2020 (no Mega-Stars)
ActivityLow.
To playCreate a team from the link on the Open League group page, or from the Create Team link at the bottom of your coaches page and select 'League', 'Open League'. Make them available in gamefinder, or find an opponent in Discord or other places. It's okay to play casual games against friends here.


RulesBB2020, Amorical Cup (non-progression) rules. (no Mega-Stars)
Activity--We'll see-- but assume this will mostly be active in the Americas timezones.
To playAmorical Cup proving grounds. Open play - create teams and apply to the group, play at your leisure.


Ranked
RulesBB2016
ActivityLow.. maybe a few fistfuls of games a month.
To playMostly old team.. "smoke'em if you got'em" sort of environment. It's still possible to create a new Ranked team from the create team dialog, but remember... this is the BB2016 rules, which is gonna feel alien to most of us anymore. If you still have an old Ranked team, you absolutely can still put'em in gamefinder and see if anyone else wants to play. Play'em while you have 'em. This environment is close to being declared done.


RulesBB2016 with custom rosters.
ActivityVery low, and we may need to get out a fork soon.
To playMake a team from the group above and put them in Gamefinder or seek games on the Secret League Discord Once again, play'em while you have 'em. This environment is on life support!


RulesBB2016, with imported League, Ranked, or Box teams, including SL16 teams.
ActivityLow
To playClone teams into the league to bring new life to them to play.
Open [L]eague Cup - No limit, Official 2016 + [SL16] teams for a possibly last ride of glory. (Watch Koadah's Blog for more information on the O[L]C activities.)


Independant Tournaments
Tournaments available, which aren't otherwise part of one of the open environments.


Time/RegionGlobal, 10-11 day rounds (Wed/Sun deadlines) to facilitate scheduling.
RulesBB2020, 4M teams, (almost all) star players.
