Current Live! Event





ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
We are kicking off the new year with another NAF Live! event, featuring an exquisite selection of so-called White Dwarfs: dead stars!

Brought back from the dead (or retirement, whichever applies), these heroes of old age and the Old Age are reporting back to duty, now under BB2020 rules!

To accommodate more coaches, this one-day tournament on Sunday, January 9th, will be run in two groups to choose from: one [EU] starting at 10:00 server, the other one [NA] starting at 17:00 server. Both will feature 4 rounds of 2 hours each.

To participate, it is essential that you make yourself available for the whole 8 hours!

Tournament admins: neilwat • Stimme


CREATING AND APPLYING A TEAM ROSTER
Before you create your team on Fumbbl, we highly suggest that you use an Excel sheet or one of the online helpers to create your team and make sure it adds up to the total amount. Find roster making tools on the NAF site.

Once you have decided on your setup, generate a new team following all of the subsequent steps (do not reuse an existing team!):

1. Create a new team using this link and choose your race and team name. Please add your desired start time (EU or NA) in brackets. E.g. Cherryville Croakers [EU].

2. On the team page, there is no need to change ‘Progression’ from ‘Standard’ to ‘None’.

3. Buy all of your players, re-rolls, etc. and click ‘submit for approval’.

4. On the following screen, select your skills.

5. When ‘Save’ is pressed to confirm your skill choices, there is no pop-up or conformation screen. You can check if your skills have saved correctly by navigating away from the screen and then checking ‘Team Options’ on your team page. You must select all skills before the start of the tournament and may not change them later.

6. NAF coaches must record their NAF nick and NAF number in the team bio section following team creation. This will help us in the future recording and ranking of online games.

7. Inducement(s) you wish to use should be left out of your team creation process and listed in the team bio. Inducements have to be announced before start of the tournament and may not be changed in-between matches!

e.g.: at the beginning of a tournament match, select only your announced inducements, as you would normally by spending your remaining treasury as petty cash.

8. Navigate to the tournament team site and use the button at the bottom at the page to apply your team.

Please view Strider’s youtube video if you need more details how to create a team.

FAIRPLAY
Be cordial on the chat and pm towards your opponent and audience. Any use of offensive laguage towards your opponent regarding racial, political or religious content might result in exclusion from the tournament and 1 year ban from NAF events.

• We recommend avoiding Timeouts. However, if you use it, you are not allowed to do it without a first “transgression” and consequent first warning on the chat.
Example: my opponent exceeds the time in one turn, I warn him that I will timeout next time.
You can only use a timeout if the other opponent is playing their turn, if they give an indication that they need 5 minutes or similar to deal with a real life event then they can’t be timed out for this.
