With the COVID-19 pandemic taking hold on the world, we've had a fairly noticeable surge of new and returning coaches to the site. I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you (back) to FUMBBL.
With social distancing being recommended globally, some of you have asked questions on if it's possible to play your tabletop league games on FUMBBL and if so, how.
The short answer is "Yes, it's possible", but there are a few hoops to get through. I would highly recommend that your league appoints one or two coordinators for the league, if possible with a bit of technical experience since it can be a bit complicated.
It is highly recommended to join our Discord
server to get assistance in setting everything up, but the short outline is as follows:
1. Create a Ruleset
with the settings you wish to use. To make it easier to re-create existing teams, adjust starting gold to something more than 1M.
2. Create a Group
, making sure to set the "Group Type" to league and the ID of your ruleset (found in the URL of the ruleset page).
3. Have league members create their teams through the group info page ("Create team for this league", top right on the info page).
4. League staff can then edit the teams and players to match the previously existing teams, by editing team treasury, FF, rerolls, etc, and players with their respective SPPs, skills and injuries.
While it's a terrible thing to have to deal with a pandemic, I hope that FUMBBL can allow you to take a break from the harsh reality of it and that you will enjoy your stay.
Once again: Welcome to FUMBBL, and don't hesitate to join the Discord to talk even if you don't need help with leagues and rulesets.
