All right, I know this will sound as old-fashioned as it could, but..
Back in the early Fumbbl days there was something called "Elfball" where elf teams were facing on high scoring matches.
2 turn TD was quite a must Very Happy, if not a oneturn one.
Usually both teams had no more than 1 mighty blow player and surely not a single dirty player...
It was quite "normal" on gamefinder to get an Elfball match.
I know several people considered it boring and basically decided by who rolled more/less snakes.
I love high scoring games in general (real life, real sport too) so I'm quite biased on that, but in the last 10 years ( more?), it seems quite impossible to get an Elfball match even once in a while.
Elf coaches, where are you? Laughing Come back and play gracefully against yourselves once again!

I consider myself lucky if I can find a game above TV 1300 in the Box nowadays, let alone an Elfball match.
Elves seem to be played mostly at very low TV in the Trophy, after 15 games you don't find them easily.

We even have a meta-league dedicated to the proud elfballers of the world willing to go out there and get turned into paste by the overtuned bash bananza that is the perpetual environment.

I run an elf draft league recruiting for season 2, there is also an ELF out of the forest group that plays amongst itself to train up for dorfs

The best way to increase the number of Elven games is playing Elves.
It's better to play Elves than write about lack of Elven games on forums.
No wonder there are no Elven games, many people talking about them, few people playing them. Very Happy
Although weaker, Elves are still playable competitively, no excuses allowed! Razz

But I hate elfs, and I only want more played so that I can kill more of them!

If you kill all the elves then there will be no more elves to kill.

Right, I don't have a real time stat, but I'm pretty sure I play/played elves 70% of the times

I played 1047 games as Elves (of the four kinds) on a total of 2356 games with the BB2020 ruleset, that's 44.43% of the times.

The real question is how many elf games have been played in box only since 2020 Ed came out and what percentage of those games is matt 😅
