LRB6/CRP/FFB is here and E.L.F. is ready to move ahead in the new format!

Season XXVI: Began 12:01 a.m. 15th of March, 2011 and will end promptly at 11:59 p.m. 4th of May 2011. All times BB time (CET).

We are now recruiting only rookie (TV 1,000 or otherwise inactive) elf teams in Ranked and Black Box until the end of the season.

Here is a link to the group page: ELF

Categories have been reshuffled to better reflect the new team designs, new races and new skills. They’ve also been laid out with the objective of making it much easier for a Black Box team to complete the cycle. Hey, you can also completely avoid playing other elves now and still get in 10 scoring matches if you so wish!

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 Elves, Pro Elves
E (Humans & Stunties): Norse, Human, Lizardmen, Amazon, Ogre, Underworld, Halfling, Goblin

Scoring follows the same general format as previous seasons with just a few minor tweaks. Baseline scores are generated according to Team Value now instead of Gate. Also, double baseline points are awarded vs. Category B teams now to encourage playing them after they’ve grown out of their awkward cherry phase.

One bad thing is that until they move over to FFB, League teams aren’t eligible to compete. We actually had to kick them out for the time being as their lack of TV was breaking the Scoring Program. We will welcome you back next season, we promise!

All the new rules can be found on the group page. The navigation has been cleaned up a bit with some nifty buttons. Also, check out the Tournaments tab to see the completely updated and up-to-date Hall of Fame with all the images!

Awards will be given out for the Overall Champion:
Image
2nd place:
Image
3rd place:
Image
One for each Category:
Image
We’ll also recognize the highest scoring team from Black Box:
Image
And feel sorry for the team suffering the most casualties:
Image

We’re also going to have a special side challenge. We’ll recognize the team inflicting the most casualties in all of their scoring matches:
Image

We kick off soon. Happy Hunting!

Great news! A reason to start playing in Ranked again!

Now, does anyone feel like updating the scoring table? Wink

I'm suffering from HTML blindness after updating the Hall of Fame with 9 million comment tags. Someone else will need to step up to the scoring table.

Great news, my twisted [B] wood elves will be joining soon (for my first E.L.F. season ever)! Smile

I spotted a mistake on the group's front page, under the Special Category Rule:
"Only stunty game will count" - might get players confused, though the rest of the sentence makes the point pretty clear. Wink

Cheers,
Rabe


Edit:
And there's no link the the group page in the opening post, if I'm not blinded by tiredness. Smile

Might edit it to put the new team 'group photos' in, especially if I get a link to them again Wink

Edited to update the code:
    alphabetised races in groups
    changed images to the current set
    right year
    included the button seen in the High princes' Bio

Edit: No real need to include two sets of code now that JP's has all the latest icons. Very Happy

I was aware of that issue.

Infact, I intended to do exactly what gjopie has done, however, I was rushing to get something out as I had lectures to get to Wink (same reason I had used the common goblin for Underworld, instead of the underworld one)

I've now edited my original post to include a reworked version, which has the appropriate images in, also, I've redone the ordering slightly (OCD!) so the races are in alphabetical order in each group.

Hi Smile
I'd like to join this E.L.F. season, and I have a few newbie questions:
1) can I compete with several teams ? Or is is just one team, or one team in [R] and one in [B] ?
2) do the games played in a tournament (a major one, or a SMACKS) count for E.L.F. ?
3) do all game played between 15th of march and 4th of may count, or only the games played after I apply to E.L.F. ?

you could spare one column by putting halflings and goblins together in a cell. After all, only one of them counts.

Isn't one of them Underworlders? Flings and Gobbs are already in the same Category. That being said, I would throw the UWs in with the other stunty teams as well.
