ANNOUNCEMENT

Latest...
At yesterday's press conference following the end of season banquet, the Lord Borgia of Tilean Grind Committee spoke for the first time of a unique opportunity presented to wealthy merchants and nobles throughout the old world.

From next season, to coincide with their new Cabalvision endorsement and full foreign sports vision package, all Grind teams will be Franchised. Lord Borgia himself confirmed that the move was purely a financial one, and that he and the other committee members stood to make large profits from the deal. He vehemently denied that the deal was in any way intended to improve the quality of the game, or that player's pay would be restructured.

It's an exciting time to be a sports fan in Tilea and, from next season, in the rest of the Old World!


What this means for the teams
Existing league teams will be allowed to remain within the league structure even if they do not meet new franchise standards. Many of these teams will find that they have new owners, but should not expect that this will result in the players or coaches getting paid more, their facilities improving, or indeed result in any noticeable improvement on the pitch.

For new teams, there will be certain requirements that must be fulfilled before being accepted into the league structure. Attendance at matches must be at a profit-earning level and all of the team's bank must be relinquished to the control of the TGC.

For teams not meeting the requirements there will be numerous opportunities to travel Tilea and arrange friendlies against other amateur outfits seeking sponsorship.


Teams wishing to participate in the regular season will be required to earn a Fan Factor of at least 3, and must have a treasury of 0. Subject to change on a whim of the committee.

The league structure, now and for future seasons will be 2 parallel divisions run in the swiss format. The divisions will be split geographically based on team location, with some teams being given the option to move after each season.

Grind: The league
The Regional league of Tilea is a tough place, playing by different rules. Predominantly Human, competing in the league requires a combination of pace, positioning and risk. The Orcs from the wastes have traveled into the region, the Dwarves from the mountains and the elves from the sea. The rats have stirred beneath Miragliano. All compete at the will of the Merchant Princes, the harsh paymasters of the league.


Grind is a league played by 8 man teams on full sized Blood Bowl pitches. There are restrictions on skill selection for players and rosters are limited to 11 players. There are no inducements allowed in this no-holds-barred format. Fluff is heavily emphasized, with players holding personal vendettas against opponents as well as team grudges, location history and back story, player interviews and in-character mumbling all playing their part. Check out the latest in the IC Thread.


For anyone wishing to participate, the full rules can be found on the group page.

The rules are not yet up to date on the group page, right? You should state that somewhere.

Does this fits only for new teams or also for the exsisting ones?

"Existing league teams will be allowed to remain within the league structure even if they do not meet new franchise standards." Smile

Those teams can expect some "special" treatment though, I guess...

Correct, the rules on the group page need an update which I hope to manage in the next couple of days. I'll also be recruiting new players over the next week or 2.

No, for current teams things will remain unchanged for now to comply with contractual conditions already set with the teams. From next season things may change as the TGC seek to wrest more control from the teams and maximize their gains. The teams will be informed well in advance before things like this happen, which is unusual for TGC operations. Smile

I've submitted my first ever orc team 'Wraog Warg Warriorz' for open play in Grind.

So now how do I get a game? Smile

This League looks amazing! I especially like the skill restrictions, and having only 8 players on the field really puts a lot of emphasis on each team's strengths/weaknesses.

I was hoping to get clarification on some things, I apologize if they've already been addressed elsewhere.

- What are the regional quotas for teams? Can a new coach apply with one of any of the available teams or is there a limit on Elf/Skaven/Dwarf/Orc/Norse(?)?

- "Whenever a Vendetta is completed by a player, that player may immediately take his next skill roll, and count that roll as a double. Settling vendettas is great for personal growth. Contact league admin to arrange your skill selection."

How does this work? Is the player given SPP and a Double Roll through Admin sorcery?

@polardragon: just message anyone who's online or post in the league thread.

@Victor: the regional quota aren't set. At the moment we're hoping for no more skaven, but anything is acceptable

And yes,admin sorcery;-)

Hmmm, lucky I just faced them then, and not in the near future. Two Trolls (of which one is reliable) is a scary prospect... Now where are those Dwarf teams when you're looking for them? :p

Unguth and the sons are living up to their hard hitting reputation by causing 2 deaths and a MNG to the new orcs in town teaching them how its done with a 2-1 victory

Unguth was later quoted as saying

"Unguth Ors R unly Orcs n grnd, dees uder grenscinz be big squishzy gobbos"

and in other news the Sons team continues to develop well as blitzer Smasha Klobuh rolls a +ag as his first skill and the team manages to pick up a RR with 100 games exactly
