We've taken a couple months off, but we're back and ready to get back on the pitch!

Season XXXVII kicks off 2014 with the aim of packing 5 full seasons into this calendar year.

Have you forgotten what we're all about?

Enter with an elf team (or teams, as many as you'd like) in Ranked, BlackBox or League. Play matches until you've faced off against at least two different races in each of our five Categories:
Quote:
Opponent Team Categories
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, Pro
E (Humans & Stunties): Norse, Human, Lizzies, Zons, Ogre, Underworld, Halflings/Goblin

When you've got in that set of 10 matches (2 different races, 5 categories) you've completed the cycle - congrats!
Image
But you're not done, you can replay any race or choose some different ones to improve your scores. Keep going until you've got all wins for your set of 10 and then keep going until your team becomes an E.L.F. Grand Champion! All the rules on scoring and other such details can be found on this page.

At the end of the season, we'll honor the Top 3 teams in the overall standings:

And we'll celebrate the best scores in each of the 5 Categories too:
Image

We've got some special awards for those braving the Black Box:
ImageImageImage

Oh, we haven't forgotten about those souls who know the real competition is to be found in League:
Image
Psst! You can have "dual citizenship", we won't tell your League commissioner if you don't! Shhhh!

Last but not least, we'll mourn with the team suffering the most casualties in the matches counting towards their cycle:
Image

When does all this take place?

Season XXXVII kicks off at the stroke of Midnight the 1st of March, 2014 and runs through the 30th of April, 2014. All times BBtime.

We'll take applications from all elf teams through the 1st two weeks of the season. After that, only zero-match rookie teams (or other wise inactive-during-the-season old ones) will be admitted.

Where do you sign up?

Go to the E.L.F. League Page and click on the Group Members tab. Scroll all the way to the bottom, select your team and apply for membership.
Image
Easy!

What's the point of all this???

The E.L.F. (Elves Leaving the Forest League, founded 1 Jan 2005 by AFK_Eagle) exists to expand the horizons of elven coaches. The perception amongst most of fumbbl is that an elf coach will only play another elf, for fear of team annihilation. Unfortunately, that perception, while not global, certainly has its roots in reality.

No more! We elven coaches are tired of being labelled "pansies" simply because we're faster and more agile than other races. Their jealousies of our natural gifts leads them to laugh at us and not take our game seriously. It's high time we taught them to rethink their opinion! We of the E.L.F. are going to not only accept challenges from other races, but issue them ourselves! Let them keep laughing as we pass and score at will against them. We might not gain their admiration, but at least by playing we can regain a measure of respect as proper members of the bloodbowl community.

So get started!

You don't even have to keep score if you don't want! The standings will be updates every day or two on the Tournaments tab and a summary of the standings/action will be posted in this thread every week or so.

Welcome to an experience that can best be described as...

Hells yes! I was hoping this would start up before my LEague season got underway, as I've already played 6 games, but better late than never! Let's see if anyone can take the title from me!

I need to get some undead games played for a personal project, but then next month gonna hit the elf-box trail - playing pro and/or high elves to get both ELF and ARR points in one go Razz

Although my usual ability to get games played may mean I only get 3 or 4 games done in a sprint Sad

Awesome, since my return to fumbbl and playing elfes with some ambition and enjoyment for the first time, i planned to join the good old metagroup. Glad you're back, now get the spandex out and start the fight! ;D

edit: applied all branches (L, B, R) of my delfs, which is all the spandex i can provide at the moment!

Well, my Nurgles have hit 666 games, which is the perfect point for them to rest.

Time to break out the Wood Elves and run amok \o/
