Quote:
As the seasons begin to change, the young step away from the seclusion of the forest Athel Loren seeking fame, glory and most of all, excitement. And nothing brings one notoriety across the Old World faster than success upon the Blood Bowl pitch!


Wood Elf teams won six of the fourteen E.L.F. titles from the foundation of the league, including the 1st three titles followed by a dynasty in seasons VI and VII. This swift and stealthy race has been one of the most successful, but now that startrek.nl seems to be in mothballs who will pick up the banner of the Wood Elves?

Quote:
The youth among the Blood Bowl playing Wood Elves set aside special tables for themselves at the Great Rebirth Feast in the springtime based upon their accomplishments upon the pitch during the colder months:

  • Order of the Willow – earned by the Wood Elf team scoring the most touchdowns in scored matches in Season XV.
  • Order of the Ash – earned by any Wood Elf team to complete the cycle (reporting 2 games in each of the 5 categories -10 different races in all) in Season XV.
  • Order of the Elm – earned by any Wood Elf team to win a category in Season XV.
  • Order of the Oak – earned by any Wood Elf team that wins the overall E.L.F. title in Season XV.

Just imagine your team sitting at a place of honor as the halls are alive with wild dancing, lilting laughter, and melodic music all around you!


Can the Wood Elves regain their rightful place at the top of the E.L.F. standings in this 15th season? Surely more than a few teams will step up to the challenge and take their rightful place alongside some of FUMBBL’s bravest elves!

Quote:
Elves of all colors/races are welcome and encouraged to join (you don’t have to coach Wood Elves to participate) - be they unblemished TR100 or grizzled veterans of +200TR. Most teams play in Ranked where matches are easier to find, but teams playing in Unranked, League and Faction are also welcome! Each season lasts for about 2 months and coaches can play as few or as many games as they choose - you can even replay any matchup until you "get it right!"


Season XI: Opens November 7th, 2007 at 12:01am (bb time) and end promptly at midnight (bb time) January 14th of 2008.
Check out the E.L.F. league page for more information or to join up (with any elf race).

This marks the end of another “racial cycle.” You’ve already missed out on Dark, Pro and High – don’t be left on the sidelines again this season!

New coaches are welcome!

The E.L.F. welcomes six new teams into the fold:
The E.L.F. also DENIES the applications of Elf-Bowl... some dirty Greenskins! Nice try AxeMurder, we'll see you on the pitch! Smile

Scoring change suggestion:
+5 point bonus if the ELF team forces a concession
(since the game ends early leaving less time to score potential TD and CAS points)

heh this looks like a good tournament for me to join to get better at using elves, can you enter multiple teams each season? say one of each elf race?

9 teams are about to show just what they're made of:

Only a few short days until the kickoff of E.L.F. Season XV!

An interesting idea, I'll toss it out for discussion (and see if I can get Rizzle to tweak the scoring program). Will likely have to wait for the 2008 cycle though.

You may join with as many Elf teams of any race as you would like. The E.L.F. is as much a statement of style as it is a competition.

There are directions to add the "Scoring Table" to your bio in the Season IV Scoring Thread.

http://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=11527&highlight=elf

In addition if you see something you like in another bio you can use the View Source command to call up the HTML code and steal . . . err I mean complement the owner with the sincerest form of flattery - Imitation!

Here's a version of the bio table that Mnemon made a little bit user friendly for the html challenged:

Copy and paste everything into your team bio and the html will magically activate and give you a place to track you scores.

Ooops... double post. Guess this would be a good place to say, "Just about a 1/2-hour until the kickoff of Season XV!"
