Southern Survivalists League

SSL is an eastern time zone league, East Asia, Australasia, West Pacific, we centre on Sydney time for preferred game starts, so if around 09:00 to 13:00 server game time suits you fairly regularly, take a look at what we have to offer.

We are rebooting the league to go full custom rosters.

  • Random draft, or pick a stunty team.
  • One of each team, room to park for a while if you need.
  • 1250 TV starting value, room for everyone.
  • No player retirements.
  • Must take stats, except the stunty squads.
  • Two Free Cards every game, madness.
  • Top up style inducements, brutal money management.
  • Wizards available for hire.
  • Custom rosters with Weapons, cheap and dirty Mercenaries.
  • A small, optional set of SL teams suited to the league.
  • No star players, custom ones in later seasons.
  • Spiked ball always in play.
  • +1 to break armour on all fouls.
  • Sneaky Git boosts, Right Stuff boost.

So check out the group page and come join the SSL and get some perms. Our old rosters had a fine collection, nine or ten permanent injuries on the old teams most of the time, and still going strong.

We think the new rules should manage better. There's never been a team with a perm on every single player, and it's about time there was.

SSL is the league where you take what nuffle gives you, and you learn to love it. MA 2 Dorfs, AG 2 Elves, ST 2 Mino (after it became a Zombie). But not only that, AG 2 Woodie Treemen, AG 4 Bull Centaur, MA 8 Vampire, MA 10 AND AV 9 Gutter Runner, there's soon enough a lot of freaks out there when you must take stats.

What about collecting the set; none managed it, but so many got close. Now we're gunna try again with more chainsaw, and more Dirty Player. Just what the league was always supposed to be.


We are recruiting for S15, all new teams, random draft optionally including Black Ark, Cathay, Rasetra, Khorne, Moulder, Engineer, Ethereal, Forest Gobs, Nippon, Pirates, and Sisters teams from SL (with a couple slight modifications to suit the league).

Team choice is determined randomly, with three tiers:
  • Stunty: Coaches who want one of the stunty teams can take it directly.
  • Core: After Stunties are taken, coaches who want one of the core 24 will roll a random team from them.
  • Core+SL: After Stunty and Core rolls, coaches who are open to SL will roll a random team from all remaining teams (including whatever is left from the core 24).

PM Klaz if you're interested, or have questions, or just drop 'em here we'll get to them when we can.

First draft is Thursday 26th, 7pm Sydney time, in our regional league discord. Kicking off October 1st, 10 day rounds, pools of six, plus a set of weekly tiered knockouts for everyone when it's done, all finished clear of southern summer holidays.

We'll post who got what and what's left available after the main draft, you might like the look of some of it, we'll roll you up a random one and plug you into the season as long as we have spots.

Looking for a few more coaches, we like running with an even 24 when we can, but we are ready to go as is. Don't be shy, easy extensions around the world cup with the first rounds, plenty of time for everyone to catch up afterward, just let us know.

We're about 4 and bit hours to reboot draft, we've got 17 coaches after a couple people got busy, will post results here and then if no one turns out later we'll look for a filler to make even numbers and set off into a promising future. Kick off on the 1st.

New rosters are locked in for season 15 here, assuming there's no obvious errors. Icons are done, not much to work with on some of the expansion SL teams, but I might polish them up a bit in due course if we get people running them. A few new ones filled in or expanded, chopped and changed here and there, but should all be familiar and easy to read on the pitch.

Draft results will be posted here after they're finished live in the discord server. May be a bit of thinking on the new rosters with the 1250 to spend. We do recommend and Apothecary and a bit of a bench to start at least, plenty of RRs if your team lacks starting skills and because of the spiked ball you definitely want a backup Sure Hands if you have one to start with.

All injuries are permanent here, players stay in the team until death strikes, so having some numpties to put on the line after a hard game and an Apo to treat the worst injuries (maybe leave the deaths, good enough, unless it's late in game) is very favoured. Ghoul teams need to consider their pickups and having the team RR waiting, and extra Ghouls.

Keep your injuries on line duty as much as possible, eventually every decent player gets one, but that's the fun of it, prolonging the inevitable and then working around it and giving it everything. Our champions in the past often had a host of injuries, the Norse, old Zons, even my Vamps, I'm looking forward to collecting a new set.

The big draft was done in chat.

MrCushtie chose Goblins.
tussock chose Halfings.

Core-only drafts.

DustBunny got Undead.
LictorZ got Slann.
HaruHaru got Norse.
HandyK got Khemri.
Sharper got High Elves.

Core+SL drafts.

The_Demon got Sisters of Sigmar.
Klazam got Cathay.
BeefyGoodness got Underworld.
Jevouse got Skaven.
Amon242 got Chaos Dwarves.
Geoffro got Renegades.
BigBullies got Dark Elves.
Dantemordican got Amazons.
pdarby got Rasetra.
Bigmac got Humans.

Team creation via the league page, top right is "create a team for this league". 1250 monies, secret weapons, dirty player mercs, get an Apo, suffer the trials of Regen, as the case may be. Beware lack of starting skills here and there you'll maybe want some RRs more than a full set of positions, and do run a spare sure hands where possible. Good luck.

2nd Draft, if anyone turns up, we need more heavy bash, will be a shortened list for a random team, bashy or weird, got enough dodge and mixed for now.

We may also be looking for a filler if we don't get anyone, thanks all. Kicks off on the 1st, 3 pools of 6, then finals.

Additional drafting got us -

Redgum got Nurgle's.
DDAmAge112 got Dwarf.

Two more coaches are in, we need four more for a pool of six, by Nov 16 to have weekly rounds on them in time for them to make the cross-division playoffs. Someone pick a stunty! Clan Moulder? What could go wrong! Smile


As a result of the Dorfs, my Flings are in a pool facing Zons, Cathay, Dorfs, Sisters, and last of all Chorfs. I guess someone had to be the SPP piñata.

Talk about a pool of death, it's as well Right Stuff cancels Tackle on blocks because that's literally all of the Tackle, and they'll have MB by the time I get to them with AV 6. If I can just get some SPP, skills on some of the little boots, more DPs, some wrestle. Why did I not give fling trees GAS skills?


First game DE vs Khemri featured -ST on a Khemri Throw-Ra, sadly was regenerated. Never mind, we'll get there, more chainsaws on the way yet.

Well done to both coaches for taking their TWO FREE CARDS, 100k for cards, use it or lose it.

Hey, it's our forum thread.

Not sure we ever caught up with det, there, oops. Details on which races are available is on the group page these days, currently undergoing a bit of a trim.

Sharper's put together a lovely set of notes for the new SSL custom rosters. Check 'em out.

Congrats to Amon242 with the Midnight Oil Down Under for taking the Casualty Cup with a coin flip win in the final.

Honorable mention to Geoffro's Renegade Survivalists for pushing them all the way. Klazam grabbed the Middling Mug with Cathay, and DanteMordican ended up with the Bottom Bowl for the Zons.


Next season kicks off on 1st February, there'll be a PM out for current coaches (and those we missed putting in for being a bit greedy aiming for 24) as to if they would like to return in due course. Teams not returning will be parked and not open to drafting for anyone else for a good few seasons if we can manage that, be nice for coaches to be able to drop back in as they like.

We'll aim to have a stunty division for new teams to fit in with (should the stunties wish to play them of course), and it might just be a bigger one than usual if we have under 24 teams.

PM Jevouse if you want in, we've got at least a couple more spots, pick from stunty or random from core or all. Probably room for one more stunty team before we close that option off. The random draft for new coaches is weighted somewhat so we don't end up with all bash or all dash teams.

Also, come join the Southern Leagues discord, great for Sydney timezone games, or NZ, or most of East Asia and the West Pacific really, or a few Europeans who enjoy early morning games, and Americans who like a few very late starts. Very Happy

Still after a couple more coaches, after some interested folk decided against.

Still a random draft unless you choose a stunty team (Ogres and Moulder available).
Full custom roster lists at The Team's Note, thanks Sharper, great work.

We're after some variety in the random drafts, if we get our full 24, there'll be one more bashy team, one more dodgy team, one more mixed team, and one more weird team.

Free rosters are ...
Bashy: Chaos Chosen, Dwarf Engineer, Chaos Khorne, and Orc.
Dodge: Black Ark, Elf Union, Nippon, and Wood Elf.
Mixed: Lizardfolk, Necrarch, Necromantic, and Pirates.
Weird: Etherial, Clan Moulder, Ogre, Vampire.

You can choose Moulder or Ogre, random draft from the 8 Core only left, or random draft from all 16 remaining. Join us in the southern wastes discord, or drop a message here, PM Jevs, just get on to us, eh. Kick off on the 1st February.

The new draft was done.

Necromantic Survivalists for Oozeboss
Etherial Survivalists for PlantingLemur
Elf Union Survivalists for Luisito2036
Engineering Survivalists for BlueMillionMiles

Orc Survivalists maybe next season, someone's got 'em if they want in, in due course.

Khorne Survivalists for Sergtacos.

We've got our preferred number of 24 coaches, if you'd like to be our safety or are keen for next season's start in three months time, let us know. Drop a message here, PM jevouse, or join us in the discord.

Teams made via the group page link, top right, apply them to the teams page after, we're sorting divisions tomorrow and kicking off on Saturday 1st.

Well well, look at this old thing.

SSL Season 16 finished up with the Order of Merciless Sisters mercilessly taking the magnificent Casualty Cup home to the convent.
and what a trophy it is*

In lesser lights, our SSL Muppets drank deep from the Middling Mug, and Surviving in Oz will just have to survive taking away the Bottom Bowl.

Next season's main divisions, Whipsundays, Paintree Rainforest, and Blasted Plains will be headed up by the winning Sisters, the unluckiest finalist Þetta Redast, and the outstanding stinkers at Redgum's Rot, respectively.

Our best fifteen will join them. We minimise repeat games in the pools, so you often get to meet your common rivals in the playoffs.

Six new squads will take up play in the Red Mountains. Clan Moulder are in already, there's a random draft for everyone else looking to join (or redraft), and the open teams, while giving recently played or parked teams a rest, are ...

Black Ark, Chaos Chosen, Lizardmen, Nippon, Ogre, Orc, Pirates of Sartosa, Vampire Core, Vampire Necrarch, Wood Elf.

We'll be looking to randomly draft two bashy, one mixed, one dodgy, and one weird team to keep a bit of classic dynamic balance about the place. If we run out of bashy, well, so be it, and we've probably got enough stunties if no one really wants the Ogres. Very Happy


We're looking for another 3-4 coaches for our new teams, next season. As per the group page rules, if the whole weapons, deadly foulers, custom rosters, must take stats, and no retiring players looks like your bit of a laugh, we kick off May 1st, with 10-day rounds and 8-team knockout cross-division playoffs after.

We're a Sydney timezone league (server +8 for now), US-based coaches have had a bit of a hard time with that lately, while Euro coaches playing their mornings works well enough, and we welcome anyone at all from the Asia/Australasia/Pacific region.

Test the waters, 6-8 games over a 10 week season, and a fair break between them, see what southern league play is all about, we foul, and we foul, and we foul, and we foul, and some of us have enough players left to score after. It's glorious. I have the flings, if you'd all foul more, I might win a few! Razz

*The NSL abandoned the competition, leaving the cup full time where it belongs, in the Southern Wastes!

Correction: server +8 for NSW time, oops. Very Happy

And we rolled the magnificently evil Wheel of Misfortune for the downtrodden teams who wished to risk their injuries or rookies on the quackeries of doctors down here.

Bufo the linefrog survivor was Badly Hurt in his operation, but will recover.

Bogan Picnic Deluxe the goblin survivor suffered medical malpractice and gained a niggling injury.

Maximillion the halfling survivor tried to make a weak spot better, and just made it worse, now double niggled.

Maldor the Maelevolent wraith said he wanted another go at regenerating that -ST, and succeeded!

Walter the human survivor took up surgery for a bit of fun, and came out looking just fine.

Dorothy, who's still surviving Oz, fixed her gammy ankle and clicked her heals and away.

But Oz the Great and Terrible shishi, no one was quite sure he was even real, and when the doctor opened him up, what popped out but Elphaba, thought dead, but in control of the machine. Sadly "Oz" was badly broken in the process and will not return to the pitch, Elphaba was a bit messed up in the operation too, it seems. Ah well. Bottom bowl winner, what a way to go out for Oz.


This may be a small sample size, but it was pretty much that bad last season too. So just as planned. Very Happy
