Greetings, FUMBBL community,

many of you will know the FUMBBL Badges: Over 150 achievements coaches and teams can strive for, the majority available to all races, five exclusively for each of the 24 races. To some coaches, hunting badges means countless hours of fun, trying to satisfy one's ambition beyond (or instead of) "simply" winning. Those who don't check them out!

Credit for all this is due to coach Hero164, who brought forth this madness and even updated it all for the CRP era! All hail the mighty badge creator!

After a minute of silence to let the frenetic cheering die away...

Now, one badge is still a little outdated:

Awe and Wonder

Play and beat 5 of the following teams:
Deathgerbils Revenge retired
Nandorins
11 Thugz inactive
Terrifying Anarchists inactive
Sleeper in Metropolis
Hellbound Charioteers
Fighting Hellfish inactive
Competitive eaters inactive
Blood Falcons inactive
Divine Assassins inactive
Trees inactive
Fluffy Kittens and More Lrb4 division
startrek.nl retired
Sneaky Plans
Rhazgul's Judgement possibly inactive
Beedogs inactive

The challenge shouldn't be to hunt these teams down, but to convince them to play and then beat them!

So, we need new teams.

I think this is a good idea.

Maybe get a list of 25.

I'm happy for nominations.

Note: We are not solely talking Ranked here anymore! Blackbox teams are also welcome and deserve their own list (if not even their own badge).

Another minute to let the tumults and brawls between Ranked and Box diehards subside...

Now, what could possible nomination criteria be?

I think a range is fine:

Longevity... Teams with 500+ matches might be eligible
Rich History... Teams with amazing Bio's
Winners... Multiple major winners.
Outrageous favoritism...teams I like....

So: Bring those nominations! Let's put a nice list together for our Hero!


Cheers
Rabe

Hunting them down has been the hardest part. Though thankfully, most of the available coaches are great sports and more than willing to play matches if asked.

Some of Malmirs teams probably qualify as well as the popes of mope.

Qaz's Chaos team is the Lone Stars.

Malmir has a few, I'll go with Fleetfoot's Revenge as the one I have seen playing in majors the most.

Team of the Spider Queen


Thanks for the mention, but I don't think they qualify. While as a coach I'd love to have someone up there, I feel my efforts have been too diffuse to warrant inclusion. TotSQ were my signiture team before I started exploring the range of teams and races, but I'm not loyal enough to any one team to make it truly famous.

I've only played these guys twice since they lost 2 great players in February. I do sometimes feel like I've abandoned my first love (or cheat on her with someone younger). Maybe I should really give TotSQ the love they deserve, and get them up to 500 games. And maybe by then they can join under the multi-major category, rather than the double-almost. =)

Doomy Digger, Clint Eastwood Roles, Crossdressers, Flachpfeifens 4th try, Popes of Mope, Nachtburg Ancients, Six hooves under, Helena High, Dirty Little Dinos, I Say You Fellows, Rata Blanca. Are teams that come to mind that have not been mentioned.

Dirty Little Dinos I think is really special as they are the team that has reached most major finals and never won one.

Ooh yes some good ones in there! (Which means not all because I don't know them, which doesn't mean much either).

My top five:

1. Blood Sea Buccaneers
2. Lone Stars
3. Ultimate Superheroes
4. Agility Monsters
5. Flying Sammiches

Either the fluff behind the team needs to be superb, or the team's achievements need to be remarkable. I would automatically rule out any team that has not won a major, or any team that doesn't regularly have press releases/fluff items related to the team being posted.

My favs:

Hanson's Roughriders, Lizards
Vault Tec Squad, Human
cherServiteurS, Vampires
Blood Sea Buccaneers, Humans
Agility Monsters, Dwarf

I wouldn't put there teams just because they've a lot of games played, they should've accomplished something great, in fluff or in play (tournaments or playing in a harsh environment with a low tier race).
