And now for something a little different.

Image

This strict weekly tournament is opt-in (group PM, or reply here, or you know, ping tussock on discord) for active SWL teams, blooding teams, or new teams, or ex-SWL BB20 teams that haven't played elsewhere, but one per coach, take your pick. World cup style. It counts as a season of development for your long-term player's agents fees, and teams taking part will redraft as normal before this and again before season 97.

You can use a different team in here than your current SWL team, but their redraft going in will be relatively low without the broadcasting bonuses. Your current SWL team may play on regardless in the following season.


  • First up a seeded round robin, with Pools of 4. (Prem-qualified teams top, then confs-qualified teams, etc).
  • Next includes a BBC Knockout for the top 16 pool teams. (Seeded to spread out 1st place pool teams).
  • Friendly 3-round Swiss for the rest. (Seeded with 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie, from earlier games).


Teams knocked out of the BBC early, get slotted in for a swiss game or two in the friendlies, so everyone gets 6 games, plus a bonus forfeit win equivalent if you play them all (2 MVPs, d6 x 10k winnings, after readying).

The final of the BBC is a 7th game for the two teams playing it, the only game of the week.

The highest finishing team in BBC III, of those regular SWL teams not already qualified for Premier S97, will qualify as last up. S97 begins after this is finished.

If my Black Orcs dont win the whole thing, they will be fired and the team wrapped up...

(well that was happening anyway, but lets see if some bare faced threats can make them turn themselves around)

According to the Matched Play Guide and FAQ, the list of mega-stars is a guide for which star players should cost extra skills, above and beyond the cost for other star players, when using your skill allotment in res tournies.

It's just not a rule for league play, and SWL will continue to follow the rules for leagues, give or take for what's needed to support the basic structure of the league.

What fumbbl does, for banning stars in rookie rumbles, or banning mega-stars in their TV-matched C div play, is up to Christer, of course.

Can unretire BB20 teams, as long as they're from SWL.

Various out-of-season redrafts all should end up in the one spot, easier to check later. Cheers. (now with correct 0 broadcasting rights).

Some Q&A, from discord.

In terms of the best team getting last up spot in prem, tiebreakers will be as follows, as close to SWL normal as possible.

  • 1: Position (winner, finalist, semi-finalists before swiss teams).
  • 2: Points (from the pools for semi-finalists).
  • 3: Head to Head.
  • 4: Strength of Schedule.
  • 5: TD diff, etc.


--

In terms of BBC Knockout seeding, the best 8 placed pool teams (standard cross-div tiebreakers, position, points, TD diff, etc) will be spread out to not play each other in the round of 16. The next best 8 will be randomly assigned to play them, by the site.

Seeding for further knockout rounds is random, you won't know your next knockout opponent until everyone has played.

Redraft budgets for the team's next SWL season, be it BBC or Season XCVII, and agents fees for the older teams. Team Value lower down must not exceed your cap after adding your agent fees for players you kept. No skills or team Rerolls may be added until after game 1 next season.


Note: This includes dead and retired players, it's everyone who played in 4+ seasons as of last season, regardless of their current capacity.
