5/6 coaches recruited
What is it?: The IBA is the Imperial Bloodbowl Association with purposefully short seasons (5 game regular season). It is a standard team draft league (standard teams are GW owned rosters like Orc, Human, Chaos Dwarf, etcetera) that additionally recognizes NAF Slann and NAF Bretonnian rosters. It is a cashless draft league with 0 TV associated with players--only their skills account for TV. This inaugural draft will involve 8 rounds of picks across 6 teams, but all other seasons will be 4 rounds long. Season 2 will involve a preseason tourney (like English football's FA Cup) and the winner of that playoff will automatically qualify for the inter league playoff. The only other way to automatically qualify involves winning the IBA outright. The wildcard spots will essentially be determined by unified standings across all three existing leagues. To be clear, the inaugural season champion of the IBA will be determined by round robin.

Healing Perms?: The league allows auto-heals of players sent to an 11 man excel deep roster. stat decreases will turn into niggling injuries and niggling injuries will be cleared completely automatically. Rostered players with injuries will need a good roll to heal themselves between seasons. Speaking of which between seasons teams will decide which players currently onsite or in the excel that they will want to add to their 16 team roster. This process allows coaches to craft their ideal teams but also provides a very forgiving attitude towards injuries.

The league has soft caps implemented to provide the option to balloon TV but with penalties to standardize the competitive balance as seen below.

TV Caps
CTV 0-1359, Apothecary and 3 RR (no penalty)

CTV 1460-1559, no apothecary.

CTV 1560-1659, -1 RR no apothecary

CTV 1660-1759 -2 RR no apothecary

CTV 1760+, -3 RR no apothecary.


Associated Leagues

The IBA will not play in the UEFA style playoff with the UFL and KPA until season 2.

The UFL (Ulthuan First League) elf draft league is full. It is a stock roster--in other words, the rosters are standardized.

The KPA (Kislev Premier Alliance) secret team draft league is full.

However, a minimum of 4 new participating coaches for either the UFL or KPA may join to form a division 2 in a ladder match style season.

The TSC (Tilean Super Confederation) will be recruited for after the IBA has been fully manned by coaches. It is a stock human draft league.

It will require a lot of research to develop a 5th league in the future...current ideas involve a stock greenskin league but there is not enough variety frankly, a undead league which may be promising if I simply standardize the roster, and a stock bash team league.

I think this has the potential to be the greatest draft league on fumbbl.

Thanks we now have
5/6 guys

Townee owns the Chaos Dwarf and first pick
Waffle Iron owns Vampire and 2nd pick
Nautical Soup owns Wood Elves
Johniemi owns Shambling Undead
Ben Awesome owns Ogres
6th We still need a coach

Habeli has a monstrous team of mice called the Volksgrad Surfers, they have the best record across associated leagues for S1, we will take the temperature of the room to see if there will be an inaugural UEFA playoff for S1 prior to S2 draft. No worries he plays in the KPA not the IBA! Absolute monsters.

An IBA Wood Elf team would like a coach to replace him BUT you could exchange these players from free agents OR port them to a compatible team--if you want to stay agile--high elves are more viable in the IBA system most likely.
