Season VIII runs from February 1st to March 31st, server time. Any games by an ARR team will count, regardless of if you are in the group or join halfway through or whatever.

Fundraising details and FUMBBL dice winnARR to be announced here soonish. In the meantime, don't forget to vote in the poll and/ARR post your comments here.

Here is the number of games played since the scheduler change last of a bit more than a year ago. You can find more data from koadah's excellent work here.

Current ARR races: Slann, High Elf, Underworld, Vampire, Pro Elf, Goblin, Ogre or Halfling.

Code:

Chaos        8049
Chaos Dwarf  5801
Nurgle       5286
Human        4894
Dwarf        4845
Orc          4376
Necromantic  3831
Undead       3730
Skaven       3113
Lizardmen    3059
Chaos Pact   2795
Khemri       2615
Norse        2484
Dark Elf     2482
Wood Elf     2194
High Elf     1636 ARR
Underworld   1607 ARR
Amazon       1306
Elf          1230 ARR
Ogre         1217 ARR
Goblin       1159 ARR
Vampire      1148 ARR
Slann        1108 ARR
Halfling      947 ARR


EDIT: It is interesting to note that Chaos has 8,049 games played in a bit more than a year and all of the ARR teams combined total 10,052. And that's with all of ARR hard work and KenThis on a 3 month long break. Wink If Brasky hadn't been playing lots of ARR (and played WMDs each of those games), and Duke had been playing Chaos instead of ~500 games of Nurgle this past year Chaos might have had more games than all of the ARR races combined! Very Happy

No way for zons, such a dumb roster. There might be a case for including the rest of the elves, unless it crosses some kind of an invisible boundary with ELF. Then again, what use we pirates have for borders Smile

For comparison, before the scheduler change, Chaos had 40,470 games and ARR races totaled 43,483. That means Chaos teams were played 93% as often as one of the ARR races back then, whereas now they are played about 80% as often. Go us! Though as the table above shows, things are still a *wee bit* lopsided. Wink

For comparison, here is what things looked like up to the scheduler change:

Code:

Chaos         40470
Chaos Dwarf   31892
Orc           25755
Nurgle        24669
Dwarf         24068
Chaos Pact    21531
Necromantic   20651
Human         18991
Dark Elf      15830
Norse         15806
Skaven        15473
Undead        15389
Lizardmen     14869
Wood Elf      14072
Khemri        11823
Amazon        11438
Slann          6853 ARR
High Elf       6808 ARR
Underworld     6685 ARR
Vampire        6288 ARR
Elf            5946 ARR
Goblin         4120 ARR
Ogre           3919 ARR
Halfling       2864 ARR


So when we created ARR, it was really easy to just pick all those races that were played an order of magnitude less than everyone else! Now things are a bit more muddled. The poll is just to get an idea of what others think about changing/not changing the races. And be like Stonetroll and chime in with your preferences! Wink

I think we should keep it at 8 races...so if you include another race we should kick one out.

However, I would be against kicking out high elves to add in amazons...that seems...wrong.

So - keep it how it is would be my vote.

Well, if we keep it as it is I wouldn't have to code anything. Mr. Green

Currently that is the direction the wind is blowing. And even some of the yes votes probably are just open to talking about it but wouldn't want to see many of the possible changes. It just isn't clear what we'd change that would be better than the current setup. Breaking it open to the bottom half and taking 12 teams is an option. But mostly I just want to take the pulse of the crew. Wink

Greetings comARRades,

Almost two weeks into the season and we already have a heavy favorite for the title.
Timetis' Rain Wild is leading the race with a 53 point sprint, hoping to become the first Pro Elf champions.

Only team close to pose a threat is the usual suspects, two-times Champions kingvan's New Vamps on the Blood who sit at 41 points but can improve their score. And let's not forget their epic come from behind win with a second sprint in Season 5.
One can never be sure with these guys, just ask okostomi Wink

In the stunty race, my own FeARR the BombardiARR and MastARR Chefs are fighting for top spot, a replay of their Season 5 battle that resulted in Goblin and Fling racial sprint records and a win for the Flings.

In the ARR Brawls, we already have a new BrawlARR champ, Sammler_der_Seelen's Cult of NomNom (Underworld) won BBB CLXXVIII, well done mate!

Also, a Fling final for BBB CLXXVII is coming up:
https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=group&op=view&p=tournaments&group=7922 />

Those who enjoyed the epic first Fling BBB final, come along, it's scheduled for 18.00 tomorrow.
https://fumbbl.com/p/match?id=3629138 />

Ooh! Almost forgot!
Has there ever been a more fun CoS qualifier than the Goblins - Khemri one?

cARRy on comARRades!

It needs a nice button, much as the whole group page needs some ARRtistic love. It's the "Leaderboard" link in red at the bottom, which takes you here.
