The Congregation [L]eague - ALWAYS RECRUITING

<img src="http://i46.tinypic.com/347wx2d.jpg">

Warlock Invasion - New round starting - March 1st

Your Faction Team looking for a new challenge?
Your Favourite Old League Team you always wanted to play again just gathering Dust?
Your current league falling into disarray?

Now you know where the Action is going down, what are you waiting for?

Join The Congregation League! Today!


<b>Fluff:</b>
The Wizard Zurk Gazul was dabbling in the arcane arts... again. Warpstone and raw magic, incantation and sheer hatred. "I am the bringer of Doom" he chuckled and began...

A massive Fireball enveloped a halfling on the pitch below, and then a Lightning Bolt struck the heart of the Fireball. A roaring furnace of pulsating flames and flickers or energy, and the ultimate sacrifice, an innocent unskilled 0spp halfling... The crowd roared in ecstasy!!!

The stench of burning flesh and the final scream of the halfling were lost as the powers surge further, slowly opening a rift in the fabric of reality... "What arcane demon or spirit will emerge?" wondered Wizard Zurk Gazul.

An inflated bullcentaur's bladder flew through the rift, followed by howls of orcs and elves, punching through the rift. Laughter echoed from the other side of the rift, as more and more players poured through the rift.

MUAHAHAHAHAAA

"Wot youz starin' at Pinky? We'z com to play ball..."

<b>Structure:</b>
Every 4-6 weeks a new tourney will start. Each division will have 4-6 teams (8 for the occasional KO tourney), starting from the strongest TR-wise, and forming cascading divisions of 6 till we run out of teams. This means the precise TR range per division each round will change regularly.

New Scoring for Round in March

<b>Tourney Scores:</b>
10/4/2 W/D/L for standard tournament play + TD/CAS bonuses

1st round = +1 per TD, +1 per cas
2nd round = +2 per TD, +2 per cas
3rd round = +3 per TD, +3 per cas
4th round = +4 per TD, +4 per cas
5th round = +5 per TD, +5 per cas

Archive: Season #1 (Jan-Feb 2010)

<b>Tourney Scores:</b>
5/2/1 W/D/L for standard tournament play + special event bonuses (Subject to change)

<b>Special Event:</b>
Due to the Arcane Magicks causing the rift to open Random Events will be taking place on a 1d6 roll each round:

<b>Starting Score Bonuses: </b>+1 per Cas, +1 per TD
1 = Zero Tourney Scoring (just Score Bonuses)
2 = Random Event (Insane Gameplay Variations)
3 = +1 per Cas
4 = +1 per TD
5 = Double Tourney Scoring, Inverted All Bonuses (10/4/2 W/D/L, -1 per Cas, -1 per TD)
6 = Double All Scoring and Score Bonuses

My New Year's Resolution... to Bowl your mind to smithereens. What's yours?[/b]

Is there a link to the group?

What division is this in? [L]? [S]?

Any limit on races? Any already taken?

What are the 'Insane Gameplay Variations'?

Any special rules on matchups?

link added: Congregation League

if you check out the Congregation, there is a limit of 4 teams per coach, up to one of each in the Rock, Paper, Scissor, Dynamite categories (found on the Congregation page)

teams brought in from other leagues are also allowed, no limitations on how many of which race inside the tourney

As for "insane gameplays", the game changes based on the objectives of the games. A coach who is aiming at winning the round will have to adjust their gameplay based on the objectives, which is where "special events" come in, but those are a "surprise"

As for special rules for matchups, not yet, TR based selecting the teams for each division for now

Are you planning on taking part in your own league? Because special "surprise" events, that are a surprise to everybody but you, will not be very fair.

I don't have time to play very actively to be good enough at BB, and cant remember ever winning a tourney ive hosted Smile

normally if there are around 30 teams, meaning 5 divisions more or less, 1 team won't make a difference... tbh i used to remove my team to allow a new coach to join the league half the time, the most important thing is collecting active coaches who will play the whole season...

a division where 80%-90% of the matches are played is a massive success for any league

I'd be more than happy to start off with a negative penalty on points to guarantee that i always come last if it is really an issue, but would that also be in the spirit of fairplay?

Sounds to me you people don't like waiting for Xmas day to open your presents Wink tut tut tut

Current coaches and teams:

Rijssiej - drunk_academy - TR220
Bill_Vestergaard - Gladiators of Heaven - TR204
chooxter - Little Red Riding Hoods - TR163
Araznaroth - Wizards of Ooze - TR182
Catalyst32 - Vindictive Stampede - TR185
Catalyst32 - Atlanta Foul Kinz - TR150
Catalyst32 - Warseer Scribes - TR100
LordSnotball - Da ZuLu BoYz - TR155

The TRs are "approximately" correct, as some coaches may play games over the next few days, the TR will be confirmed last minute Smile

And, as Catalyst has brought 3 teams to the table, one team will play per division. so if we manage to get a few more players to set up another division (and there's almost always a last min rush for a TR100 division or two) we might be able to fit them all in...

waiting for more signups Smile
