Welcome to the /tg/ Monkey League, the second main league for /tg/. This league is designed for nerds that want more blood bowl. You might be scrub who wants to play more to git gud, or a try hard who wants to practice with a team before using them in the main /tg/ league. Either way, you will find yourself among other special players like yourself.
If you want to learn more about the /tg/ Monkey League, please click on one of the buttons above. Alternatively, you can go to /tg/ and search for the Blood Bowl General thread so you can ask about the league there.
To join this league, PM CMonkey to join. The commissioners of this league will post in the thread as CMonkey (who doesn't have a secure tripcode and should PM me with it once he makes one) and Pizzapocalypse!!wG8gCYfBXRJ respectively when it is relevant and not spam their trip all the damn time.
In the /tg/ Monkey League, there will be two divisions after Season I, which consist of the Veterans League and the Rookies League. Only teams 1200TW or below can enter the Rookies, whilst any team can enter the Veterans.
In the regular season, both the Veterans and the Rookies will consist of a 6-round Swiss league. 2 points are awarded for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss.
Each round will last for a week, beginning automatically once every match in the previous round has been completed. You will be allocated an opponent you have not played before, with the closest record to your own. It is up to both you and your opponent to work out a time to play over PM, and to use the Scheduler to propose and accept this time so it appears on the "Upcoming Matches" page.
Once the regular season ends, the top 8 teams in each league will enter separate play-off Finals to determine their Champion. Seeded according to their regular season position, the 1st seeded team will play against the 8th seeded team, the 2nd against the 7th, the 3rd against the 6th, and the 4th against the 5th.
Once the Finals end, the team that wins the Championship gets the /tg/ Gold Monkey, the team that lost in the final gets the /tg/ Silver Monkey, and the two teams that lost in the semi-finals get the /tg/ Bronze Monkey.
Meanwhile, the team that wins the Rookie Championship gets the /tg/ Gold Banana, the team that lost in the final gets the /tg/ Silver Banana, and the two teams that lost in the semi-finals get the /tg/ Bronze Banana.
Finally, the team that finishes 1st place in the Veterans regular season gets the /tg/ League Leader Barrel, and the team that was 1st place in the Rookies gets the /tg/ Rookie Leader Barrel.
All of those trophies and the BBcode for them are in the Awards section of this page.
Teams in the /tg/ Monkey League are not allowed to play against any non-/tg/ Monkey League team, nor are they allowed to play any non-scheduled matches.
Prizes like potions that are obtained by FUMBBL from outside the league are prohibited from use within this league.
Don't sign up if you can't commit to playing one match a week for six weeks.
Coaches have a week from the start of the round to complete their matches; if it is clear one coach has made efforts to be available whilst the other has barely responded, they will be awarded the win.
Unfortunately, you don't get any money or SPP for this type of forfeit because FUMBBL is weird like that.
Please use the Scheduler to arrange matches, as when both coaches have "accepted" a time it appears on the Upcoming Matches page.
In extraordinary circumstances, a coach may be given a couple of extra days to complete a fixture, please PM CMonkey if this is the case.
The vast majority of coaches in the /tg/ Monkey League are friendly and sportsmanlike. Unfortunately however, after a small number of incidents, rules are now required regarding coaches' behavior in games.
Unsportsmanlike actions include, but are not limited to:
Discussing or agreeing on in-game events.
This includes agreeing on not fouling or behavior that implies an agreement such as clicking end turn for a significant part of the game.
Arranging games, i.e. playing to lose or draw.
This includes deliberately not attempting to win a match to avoid playing higher ranked teams in the future.
This is where coaches allow each other to score extra touchdowns or other SPP generating events.
Entering a weak team, or deliberately weakening a team if it is doing poorly.
Deliberately not playing a match to hold up the league.
Attempting to use multiple accounts.
As a guide, any misconduct listed in the FUMBBL Rules is not permitted.
Failure to meet these standards will result in a coach and all of his teams being removed from the group.
As with anything, the commissioner CMonkey's decision is final.
How to Join the League
First, submit only one (1) fresh [L] team to the /tg/ Monkey League at this link (The team that you submit can be a Simyin team). Next, send CMonkey a PM describing your desire to participate, what team you are using, and which league you want to join. Finally, wait until he approves your request for membership.
Blood Bowl is not a gentle sport. Even the most experienced stars require time for their bodies to recover, their tentacles to regenerate, and their wounded egos to heal.
After a team has participated in either division of the /tg/ Monkey League for 3 seasons, consecutive or not, they are considered an Exhausted Team.
On becoming an Exhausted team, they must instantly take a season's break from the League. If a coach wishes for this team to return to the League after this break, for every season played, they must take a break in the next season.
Exhausted teams cannot "bank" breaks, for example taking two seasons out would not mean a team could play return to play for two consecutive seasons.

It is said that on that day, the clouds aligned miraculously, and the message "Lizards are a balanced and reasonable team" could be read from them. Also, someone linked this song in the thread to mourn for the fallen Werewolf whose death meant the end of One Night Rack as we know it. If only the poor wolf had Dodge, he could still be here. But alas, he left in the arms of Winter and he was carried far away.

"The Poundinator(Star Player)
"sworn enemy of lizards"
20/11/2015 - 23/7/2016 (21 Games[70 SPP])
The Poundinator passed away during the Season 4-Round 5 game of One Night Rack v hither slither. He was taken from us before his time by a blitz from Kroxigor diamond. He is survived by fellow werewolf The Warmongrel and chief rival Cowboy Tanktop. With 18 CAS in his 21 games, and multiple TDs in ONR's Finals win over AC, The Poundinator has earned the first spot of the Hall of Fame. He died as he lived, fighting against the lizard overlords.
On a sad note, The Honor of Poundinator was marred by cowardly acts of coach Tooby. Sad." -Sideline Reporter MIV
