Dungeonbowl Dust-Up

I'm delighted to announce that our first NAF Live tournament, The Dungeonbowl Dust-Up is ready to take your application!

The first NAF Major of the year, the Dungeonbowl, was due to be held in Dusseldorf this weekend. Covid-19 intervened, so we are going to bring you the next best thing: six games of online NAF Blood Bowl that you can play from the comfort of your own home!

The Dungeonbowl Dust-Up will take place over the weekend of 28/29 March, and you will be able to participate in any of three timezones. Read all of the details on how to apply on the European, Americas and Oceanic tournament pages; selecting the schedule that best suits you. Applications close on 27 March at 22:00 UTC, and we will be drawing the tournament shortly thereafter for a prompt start on the morning of the 28th.

This is a particularly good time to get involved with FUMBBL, so even if you haven't joined us for an Online NAF tournament before, please take a look. Christer has been good enough to provide us with a NAF Live channel on the main FUMBBL Discord, so you can even enjoy a virtual weissbier with your opposition between rounds!

I've included some FAQ around the NAF Live concept below, but if this or the FUMBBL group page doesn't answer any questions you have, please post on the FUMBBL forum or ask in that NAF Live Discord channel.

Thanks, and we'll see you next weekend!

Phil / Purplegoo.

FAQ:

Q: Can I run my own postponed / cancelled tournament on FUMBBL?

A: Sure! Check the FUMBBL front page for details on how to use the site. However, and this is important: The NAF website will only take results from official Online NAF / NAF Live tournaments.

Q: Will these games count towards my usual NAF ranking?

A: All NAF Online and NAF Live games count to the Online variant rankings.

Q: I'm European. Can I play in the Americas timezone because that suits me better?

A: Sure. Play wherever is best for you.

Q: Can you do something on BB2?

A: We hope that we will be able to one day. Watch this space.

Q: I can't make next weekend. When will there be another NAF Live tournament?

A: We currently aim to run a tournament every other weekend. We'll review the format, cadence and success of the tournaments as we go along. I doubt the Dungeonbowl will be the last major that we look to recreate online in these difficult times.

Q: Can I join if not a NAF member?

A: Sure!

Q: Which version of PO are you using?

A: BB2016.

It should all be behind the links in the OP... Click on European, and in the group there is a link to the Dungeonbowl skill rules. It’s pretty simple; I think the same as when you came to Nottingham?

There is no final in this tournament, no Dungeonbowl game. Just 6 games of standard Swiss.

Sounds good that the next tourney is coming soon.

One comment. I could do a one-day tourney family-wise but I dont want to do a two-day. So if you can sprinkle in some one-day tourneys as mentioned, that would be highly appreciated. I have no idea if I am in the minority with this request or not, but I wanted to mention it.

Anyway, thanks for all the work you and others put into this. Highly appreciated especially during this crazy times.

You’re welcome. Smile

One-dayers are certainly on our list of things to try / do. I think the next two are locked in as weekenders, but after that, we aim to squeeze one in.

Foad will be leading the charge on our next event, so please keep an eye out for his post in the not too distant future.

Cheers!
