We're back!

Season XXXI: Begins 12:01 a.m. 21st of August, 2012 and will end promptly at 11:59 p.m. 14th of October 2012. All times BB time (CET).

Recruitment so closed to all but brand new (or otherwise inactive during the season) elf teams in Ranked, Black Box and League.

Here is a link to the group page: ELF

Maybe you haven't heard about the E.L.F. or maybe it's been a while and you've forgotten what we do.

We're all about playing a variety of different races with our elves - sort of the anti-elfbowl league. We take all the races and group them into 5 categories like so:

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

Your final score is determined by taking your best 2 matches against 2 different races in each of the 5 categories - 10 matches in total. We call that "completing the cycle."

Image

For example: If you play Orcs 10 times during a season, only your best score will count no matter if that match was your 1st or last one. And if it turns out you had better scores in matches played vs. Dwarves and Chaos Dwarves, your best Orc match wouldn't count at all anyways since you only get 2 scores in any given category!

Points are generated based on how well you do in each match outscoring and inflicting casualties on your opponents. Specific details can be found on the group page linked above.

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 3 highest scoring team from Black Box:
Image
Image
Image
An award is available for the highest scoring League team:
Image
And feel sorry for the team suffering the most casualties:
Image

We’re also going to have a special side challenge in honor of the league resurrection. We’ll recognize the team with the best single match (best E.L.F. score) vs. a team in Category C:
Image

We kick off soon. Oh, please give OenarLod some lovin' if you see him on IRC as he fixed the program that allows us to generate the scores automagically. Thanks OenarLod!

Here is the updated E.L.F. points table for coaches to use to manually keep track of their scores:

This seems interesting, although I resent grouping the proud Humans and Norse with a bunch of lowlife stunties. Wink

The Ghost Riders are interested in joining, but is there a hall of shame for those who cannot complete a cycle in time? My life is quite hectic but I try to push in some BB from time to time.

I've just put my 4 blackbox ****Elf teams in.

Given that its [B], and that I don't get as many games in as I'd like, and that I tend to activate 10+ teams at once (also going for the Filling the Box Grid stuff too), I very much doubt I'll get close to completing a cycle with any of these, but it will be worth a shot anyway.

Yes! E.L.F. is back! *cheers*

Not that I could really participate, but I guess I'll apply my teams anyway. Very Happy

May I ask why Pact are in the "Better with Age" category?
They suck the proverbial big one after TV1600 or so.
