Can anybody direct me to a league/environment/group/... of some sorts where you can play one-off games with tournament rosters? Like Blackbox, but without the skill-progression.

thank you!

Do you mean like tabletop tournament rosters? e.g. TV1100 no progression.

Or do you mean like regular progression teams playing non-progression matches?

Either way, I don't know of anyone running leagues/groups like that. I'm not even sure that non-progression works outside of tournaments.

The first one! I want to focus more on getting tournament-style games in, since they tend to have different skillchoices both on your own team and your opponents.

Hmmm... a non-progression weekly league, or a scheduled-progression league, would be interesting.

Actually, the Academy should be structured that way. Hmmm. This gets me thinking.

You would just create an individual league for each tournament, correct?

We'll need Christer's word on this.

I think the issue is that NP is based around tournament rounds. So, if you are not in a tournament, the system may not know what it is doing.

I am sure that people have done this before but they may just have set up a one round tournament.

Non-progression is an option in rulesets, so it should work outside of tournaments.

Moving a non-progression team into a progression league later on, however, would be a bit of a mess most likely Smile

The first one! I want to focus more on getting tournament-style games in, since they tend to have different skillchoices both on your own team and your opponents.


During the year there are a number of NAF online tournaments run on fumbbl. Keep a close eye on fumbbl and NAF and you'll see them. They count towards your ranking and follow tournament rule sets.

that's the games I'd like to play! But without them counting towards any ranking, so they can be used for experimenting. Practice games. Just one-offs with tournament rules.

I think you can play in test mode. If with someone else who is willing to do that. I haven't tried it but I think you choose any skill combo for it.
