League rules and setup.
|Play Offs & Conference|
Round Deadline 10 days (flexible if we know the games are planned)
UK time zone
There will be 8 teams in the Champions League this season playing a round robin for Cash Prizes, with a play off at the end for the title and Chill Axe Trophy.
There will be 10 teams in the Conference League playing for Promotion and again, those all important Cash Prizes.
Winnings will be dished out after the League has ended, in the case of the Champions League this will be before the Play Offs.
1st Place 100k
2nd Place 60k
3rd Place 30k
1st Place 50k
2nd Place 30k
3rd Place 15k
There will be promotion and relegation at the end of the season,
The intention is to have 10 teams in each League, This is obviously dependant on Teams taking part. Untill we have alot more players the 2 tiers will be as balanced in numbers as they can be.
This season all redraughted teams will make up the top tier, while all new teams will make up the lower tier. (this has been the case after every season, so far)!
Top of the conference will get an automatic promotion, Numbers for promotion and Relegation will de finalised depending on how many teams are Re-Draughted, and new teams coming in.
THE OFF-SEASON BREAK AND RE-DRAUGHTING
After POSITIONS IN NEXT SEASONS DIVISIONS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED,
any coaches who wish to Re-Draught their team for the next season should get together with
MisterA OR Another ADMIN
and run through the following steps
(Mostly Taken from the Core Rules set, Changes are in CAPITALS)
Players that would miss the teams next game recover.
Coaches calculate the funds available to them to Re-Draught their team. (THIS WILL BE DONE AND CHECKED THAT YOU AGREE) Your redraft value will be calculated by the admin team as follows (but Coaches strongly advised to check for themselves):
When Re-Draughting, each team gets a starting Re-Draught Budget of 1,000,000 gold pieces. This represents money doled out by the league.
ON TOP OF THIS A BONUS IS APPLIED TO TEAMS REMAINING IN THE LEAGUE.
This represents the team's sponsors, fan clubs and generous patrons!
OBVIOUSLY, THE PREMIERSHIP ATTRACTS SOME SERIOUS SHINY GOLD, THE LOWER DIVISIONs...NOT SO MUCH... (and remains minimal to allow ‘fair-play’ to prospective new teams)
BECAUSE THE REDRAUGHT BUDGET (AS PER CORE RULES) REVOLVES AROUND 15 GAMES AND THATS NOT MANAGABLE IN A LEAGUE WHERE WE ACCOMADATE EVERYONE WE CAN, (SO ANY SEASON COULD BE 6-10 GAMES)
THE AWARD IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE IS 1450K (REPRESENTING 30K PER GAME PLAYED FOR 15 GAMES)
+20K PER GAME WON LAST SEASON
+10K PER GAME DRAWN LAST SEASON
THE AWARD IN THE CONFRENCE IS 1150K (REPRESENTING 10K PER GAME PLAYED FOR 15 GAMES)
+20K PER GAME WON LAST SEASON
+10K PER GAME DRAWN LAST SEASON
(WHEN/IF MORE TIERS ARE ADDED THESE BUDGETS WILL LIKELY CHANGE)
+ Team’s current TREASURY WILL BE ADDED TO THE BUDGET
Coaches complete their new team draught for the season ahead using the agreed redraft budget.
(ONCE THE BUDGET HAS BEEN AGREED, YOU WILL RETIRE ANY PLAYERS YOU NO LONGER WISH TO KEEP,
ANY RR'S YOU MIGHT LIKE TO DROP ETC,
THEN THE REMAINING BUDGET WILL BE PLACED IN YOUR TREASURY FOR NEW PLAYERS, RR'S, STAFF ETC)
Assistant coaches and cheerleaders may be carried over from your previous Draft list at 10k each, or they may be let go.
Apothecaries may be carried over from your previous Team Draught at a cost of 50,000 peices each, or they may be let go.
Team RR's may be carried over from your previous Team Draft list at the cost shown on your team roster or they may be let go.
Additional RR's will cost the double value.
As well as hiring new players from your Team Roster, you may re-hire players from last season's Team Draft list!
Players can be re-hired by paying their Current Value as shown on last season's Team Draught list plus an agent's fee of 20,000 gold pieces for each ...
IT'S SUPPOSED TO SAY "SEASON"
DUE TO THE NATURE AND LENGTH OF THE LEAGUES IN CHILL AXE THERE IS AN AGENTS FEE PER RE-HIRED PLAYER OF...
10K FOR 1-14 GAMES PLAYED
20K FOR 15-29 GAMES PLAYED
40K FOR 30-44GAMES PLAYED
45-59, 60~74 ETC
After you have rehired your players,
If a player has any Niggling Injuries, roll a D6 for each, applying a +1 modifier to the dice if the team has an Apothecary.
On a roll of 4+, some rest and relaxation has worked wonders, the Niggling Injury you are rolling for is removed.
RE-DRAUGHTING TEMPORARILY RETIRED(TR) PLAYERS
Additionally, players that temporarily retired during the last season can be Re-Hired by paying the cost they are listed at (including skills and agent fees for games played etc).
YOU MUST INFORM AN ADMIN IF YOU WISH TO TEMPORARILY RETIRE A PLAYER VIA FUMBBL OR DISCORD
THE PLAYER MUST HAVE BEEN RETIRED DURING THE POST-GAME SEQUENCE OF THE GAME IN WHICH THEY RECEIVED THE INJURY.
After the player has been Re-Draughted, roll a D6 for each* characteristic reduction they have suffered applying a +1 modifier to the dice roll if the team has an apothecary.
On a 4+ the statistic is restored but replaced by a Niggling Injury,
On a 1-3 the characteristic reduction remains.
IN THE EVENT OF AN OLD CHARACTERISTIC REDUCTION,
THESE MAY NOT BE ROLLED FOR!
TREASURIES WILL BE EMPTIED FOR ALL BUT NEW BUILD TEAMS FOLLOWING RE-DRAUGT
Win = 3
Draw = 1
Loss = 0
Rule of fun
Fouling is 100% allowed.
You may lay down your players if you feel it could help you last another day.
Had one of your star players killed? What better way to have revenge then to put a bounty out on the player who caused it.
Putting a bounty on a player will cost you one of your league points, this point will be transferred to the coach who manages to remove the player the bounty is placed on from the game. One of our sponsors will also double the bounty if the death is caused by a foul.
Chilling for the rest of eternity:
*Last updated 01/12/22. Please let Kinks know if you spot any mistakes.
Axe beholders (Past & Present): Everyone hates the team that swings in through the play offs and wins, especially if the beat you last season.
The Chill axe must be fielded every drive it is available and a bounty is placed on it.
This Bounty will give a bonus League point for any Removal from the game, ie, Badly Hurt or Worse!
The holder of the Chill Axe must gift it to a player, this player will never get a MNG so every player in the league will get a chance at the bounty! Except the holder of course (though a point for killing itself would be fun)!
This player will recieve,
Ball and Chain, +2 St, -1 Ma - max Ma 6, and No Hands.
and must be fielded every drive it is available, no hiding in reserves!
To add the skills a cost must be attached and it will cost 40k for the Axe!
