38 seasons have come and gone since the E.L.F. was founded.

Living rulebooks have been replaced by a Competition Rules Pack. Our league rules have changed to keep up. Coaches have come and gone.

But none of these changes, nor the passage of time, can erase the accomplishments of those brave elves that have gone before us!

Just look back upon some of the teams to have earned the honor to be called Grand Champion...

Past E.L.F. Winners:
  1. Belgian Music Lovers - Wood
  2. startrek.nl - Wood
  3. Belgian Music Lovers - Wood
  4. Old Elvish Dominion - High
  5. Hunted by Destiny - High

  8. Home Brew - Dark
  9. Glory Daze - Pro
  10. Glory Daze - Pro

  12. Ocultis Synnopsis - Dark
  13. Elf Stones - Pro
  14. Popes of Mope - Pro
  15. Synnful Sprinting Spirits - Wood
  16. Legion of Longevity - Wood
  17. Craving for AG4 - High
  18. E.nigmatic L.ove F.anatics - Wood

  27. Vailwynd Valiant's - High
  28. Samovar Sinensis - Wood
  29. Samovar Sinensis - Wood
  30. Pro Popes - Pro, Black Box
  31. WE fighting hard back - Wood, Black Box
  32. 300%Luck - Wood, Black Box
  33. Loth mean relief - Dark, Black Box & Yun Zis Absolute Wahrheiten - High (Tie)
  34. Dollhouse - Pro
  35. Rooots - Wood
  36. They Mostly Come At Night - Dark
  37. Elvish Marmelade – Dark
  38. Loths forsaken - Dark
Racial Breakdown:
  • Wood - 18
  • Pro - 8
  • Dark - 6 1/2
  • High - 5 1/2
Grand Champions by Division:

33 1/2 Ranked
3 1/2 Black Box
1 League.

Multiple titles belong to:

Do you recognize any of those teams? Do you sort of envy their accomplishments? Do you want to have your own team's name etched into history?

Well, what are you waiting for... (I'm guessing 7 July 2014, since that's when the next season begins). It's almost time to kick off another season of the E.L.F. and here's a step-by-step guide to getting in on the competition.

Step 1.

Apply with any Dark, High, Pro or Wood elf team in Ranked, Black Box or League down at the bottom of the E.L.F. Group Members Tab. [Select (your elf) Team] in the drag down box and click "Apply for Membership." Once you've done that, your team is a member until you (Leave) the group or until the end of a season after you Retire the team.

You can apply and play with as many teams in as many different divisions as you like. Want to see which of your teams can do best in a season? Feel free to compete against yourself!

Step 2.

Start playing matches against a variety of different races. We count your best score against 2 different races in each of our 5 Categories for a total of 10 matches that count towards your score. Once you get in that set of 10 matches, you're said to have completed the E.L.F Cycle.
Image
Congrats!

Quote:
Opponent Team Categories
A (Plug & Play): Orcs, Dwarf, Chaos Dwarf
B (Better with Age): Chaos, Nurgle, Pact
C (Bones & Moans): Necro, Undead, Khemri, Vamps
D (Agile): Dark Elves, Skaven, Slann, High Elves, Wood, Pro
E (Humans & Stunties): Norse, Human, Lizzies, Zons, Ogre, Underworld, Halflings/Goblin


The Java program will take the 2 best matches (but only 1 per race) no matter in what order they were played. So as you play matches:

#1 Orcs - 60 points
#2 Chaos Dwarves - 54 points

These 1st two matches both count for you Category A score. Then you play another:

#3 Dwarves - 53 points

Since your other scores are better, this third match is ignored. It doesn't count for Category A or anything else - only 2 scores per Category are considered. Play again and get:

#4 Orcs - 61 points

Then the 61-point Orc match and the 54-point Chaos Dwarf match would be the ones that count. Even though your 2nd best score in category A was the 1st one you played against Orcs, you can only count one per race so that is thrown out and replaced by the 4th match where you scored 61. You play a 5th match:

#5 Dwarves - 62 points.

Now match #5 and match #4 are the ones that count. Even though Orcs and CDs were the 1st two races you played the program doesn't care, CDs are now replaced by Dwarves!

This happens for all 5 Categories such that you never have more than 10 matches counting for your overall score. The only oddball thing is that Halflings and Goblins share a "race" slot such that only one score can count even though you might play both of those races (and have your 2 best scores).

Step 3.

Java program? Yes, the scoring it tracked automatically! I try and post an update every other day on the E.L.F Tournaments Tab. There you can see a complete list of everyone's counted scoring matches and ranking in the standings.

How do you score points?

Quote:
Points Awarded
Baseline:

Game played= 10 points at 1,000,000 TV or less

and every additional 1-200,000 of TV - 1 point

so,
0 - 1,000,000 - 10
1,000,001-1,200,000 - 11
1,200,001-1,400,000 -12
1400,001-1,600,000-13
and so on...

This is the TV of the opponent or the ELF team, whichever is less.

Result:

Win= +10 pts
Draw= +5 pts

Scoring:

Per td scored= +1 pts
Per td allowed= -1 pts

Casualties:

Per cas caused= +1 pts
No negative modifier for casualties against - you've already suffered enough!

Bonuses:

Score 5 or more touchdowns= +2 pts
Shutout victory (opponent does not score)= +2 pts
Force opponent concession= +3 pts

Double points awarded for all Category A games - multiply your total score x2.
Double baseline points awarded for all Category B games - multiply your baseline score x2.


Woah, that's a lot! Just remember that the higher the TV of both teams, the better. The more you score & inflict casualties and the less they score, the better.

Step 4.

Win stuff!

We'll recognize the Top 3 Spots in the Overall Standings:
ImageImageImage

You can also gain fame by having the highest total in any of the 5 Categories:
Image

We'll recognize the Top 3 brave and determined souls who complete in Black Box:
ImageImageImage

The top League team is honored as well:
Image

Oh, and we mourn along with the team suffering the most casualties in their scoring matches:
Image

Step 5.

Some coaches take on extra challenges that have become part of the League's lore:

Synnful Sprint

Coach Synn; likes to add an extra bit of difficulty to an E.L.F. season - something known as a "sprint." The challenge is to take a new TR100 team and refuse all matches vs. other elves for the first 20 games. After that time, the sprinter is free to play other elves.

Extra difficult and not for the squeamish!

Dalfort Dash

Playing 10 different races not enough of a challenge for you?

Coach Dalfort suggests you try and play all 24 races during the course of a season. Once you have done so you have completed a Dash!

These aren't really anything official, just another thing some of the coaches like challenge themselves to do.

Step 6.

When does this all happen?

Season XXXIX runs from 7th July through 31st August, 2014.

We'll accept applications from all elf teams here in the preseason and up until the last 2 weeks of the season. After that, we get picky!

So, are you ready to join the #1 Metagroup on Fumbbl?

Season XXXIX kicks off in just a few days, so get your elf team in!

Dark Elves in Disguise have a few modes ambitions.

A) Win the overall E.L.F. contest

B) Surpass the previous high score set by Loths Forsaken last season.

C) Achieve the highest score in categories A, B, C, D and E.

D) Achieve the highest number of goals in a single match.

E) Achieve the highest number of points scored in a single match not counting bonus points in categori A and B(not an official contest, but it should be).

And last but not least.

F) Brutally beat several stuntie teams into a bloddy pulp. Stuntie cas was what secured the victory last season and why mess with a winning formuly.

Once these modest goals have been met, we will graciously allow another team to win the red badge of courage.

Sorry Nerdbird, I've switched from High to Dark Elves after my AG6 Blodge Thrower and my ST4 Nerves Catcher were killed in successive games towards the end of last season.
