The NAF and FUMBBL are pleased to announce the Road to the NAF Championship 2015!
Beginning in January, FUMBBL will host the Road to the NAF Championship (NAFC), the first online tabletop resurrection style tournament sanctioned by the NAF. The winner will receive the prize of a ticket to the NAF Championship (worth £55)!
The NAF Championship is the biggest tabletop Blood Bowl individual tournament of the year and one of the five yearly NAF Majors. Held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK, the 2014 running of the tournament attracted over 170 coaches, and 2015 could be even bigger.
The Road to the NAFC will be contested on FUMBBL over 6 rounds of Swiss competition and will use the same rules as the NAFC (see the newly released 2015 rulespack here). Christer is working behind the scenes to get the FUMBBL ready for this form of Blood Bowl, and the Road to the NAFC is set to be the first of a set of ongoing online NAF sanctioned resurrection style events; hopefully allowing NAF members to track their progress via a new ‘online variant’ ranking system. This functionality will also be extended to user organised events similar those already running in the [L]eague division.
Full details will be announced later in the year. In the mean time, please discuss and ask any questions you might have in the forum thread to be found in the tournaments section! More information about the NAF, what they do and why you should join can be found here. I'm really looking forward to this form of the game coming to FUMBBL and the collaboration between online and tabletop Blood Bowl!
