After many years of hard work with tournaments, PurpleChest has decided to step down as the main official tournament manager for FUMBBL. In his place, easilyamused is stepping up to take on the burden of keeping our tournaments running as well as they have been.

I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to PurpleChest for what he's done over the years. Without him, our tournaments wouldn't be what they are today.

If you have any questions about this change (which will likely not affect too many of you at all), feel free to get in touch with easilyamused or me (Christer) and we'll do what we can to respond to your queries.

The question on the minds of many in the Old World has been, "What happened to the Fighting Cockerel Cup?" Now, breaking news just out of the Moot has revealed that most of the top Stunty Leeg officials have been arrested and charged with multiple infractions, including bribery, collusion, and falsifying food allowance claims. Even the seemingly untouchable Sipp Pigblatter was dethroned from his lofty position at the head of the Leeg. Details are scarce, but it is believed large bribes have become the norm to secure a Stunty Major, not the lest of which is the purported huge paid by the Goblins to host the Exploding Cup. It all came to a head when the player who was supposed to be the prize for the Exploding Cup champions, Hobgoblin Assassin Scarlath 'Back Scratcher' Scarly, ran off with the tournament prize money, the bribes, and half of the Drachenfels Coachmen's cheerleaders. At this point accusations began to fly, investigations were started, and Pigblatter's empire began to crumble.

Where does this leave the Stunty Leeg? Well, aside from missing the FCC this year, not much different than before. The Leeg has, and will likely always be, chaotic and mismanaged. An interim staff of Gnomes has been brought in to audit and restructure and the Stunty Cup will push ahead. The prizes are presently unknown, and may be less than what they were in the past, but the glory of hoisting the trophy will still be the same.

So bring your team, and be ready for the madness that is the Stunty Cup. Coming September 2nd to a pitch near you.

The Lustrian Challenge is upon us! The battle to win the services of Huapec Qoxotl has come and many of the greatest teams set sail to look for glory...or just revel in the bloodshed and drink the beer.

All applications from before today have been removed...starting today applications are now open. The draw will be next Wednesday the 12th of August at 22:00 server time. The top 128 teams (based on TW) will be split into 16 qualifiers of 8 teams each. The minimum TW is 1500 for this event, and it is only open to R teams.

If there is enough demand (over 240 teams) the qualifiers will be enlarged to 16 teams each. I will make an announcement if this seems likely.

So, go ahead and Apply Here. This link takes you to the LC Qualifier page - make sure you apply there and not the main tournament page.

Any questions - let me know.

Early this morning (I'm estimating around 3am server time), one of the drives on the web site managed to get filled up (due to massive logfiles not being rotated properly). This caused a large number of matches to fail to upload properly to the site.

The fix for the issue was for me to delete some 70GB of log files, modify a logrotation scheme (from daily to hourly) and a server reboot (due to strange behaviour caused by the full drive).

After this, I spent some time to upload all the pending matches to the site. However, during this process, a number of currently active matches were uploaded by mistake. This means that the matches ended and the result was sent as-is to the site.

This, unfortunately, is a hard issue to fix (ie, it's practically impossible to revert a game back to "unfinished" state), I will have to leave it as-is. This means that the games that were uploaded in their partial state will overall be left uploaded as-is. In order to not mess up any tournaments, please get in touch with me and I'll assist you as best as I can to come up with a solution. Note that I can not revert the match to its previous state.

At this time, there are just under 80 support tickets about games not uploading and I will simply close them all with a template response. If you feel that your issue is not resolved, or I manage to close a ticket that's not related to this issue, simply resubmit your ticket and the staff will assist you as best we can.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
