Eur'Open Online 2020





Blood Bowl tournament scene has been rising in popularity on the last decade and COVID was a blow to many tabletop tournament organizers in 2020. Like most events on this year, the most expected European tournament – Eurobowl - was postponed to 2021.

Nonetheless there’s no reason for not preparing yourself!

FUMBBL’s NAF Online team in association with Eurobowl Poland organizers bring you Eur’Open Online.

This is an online NAF ranked team tournament where you’ll play for your fellow coaches, for your self glory and for your country! Hopefully this will be able to mitigate the absence of this year’s many tabletop events and will give you some days of fun and practice for Euro Poland 2021.

OTHER RULES

• Please endeavour to complete your games. PM your opponent as soon as you can and organise a time to play.

• If agreeing a time is proving difficult, PM your division admin as soon as possible.

• Games will be forfeited promptly to begin new rounds.

• In the event you forfeit a game without a valid reason, we reserve the right to temporarily exclude you from future NAF sanctioned online events for a short time.

• Games will count towards NAF ranking as Online NAF games on thenaf.net. Forfeits and games against non NAF members are not recorded.



FAIRPLAY

• Be cordial on the chat towards your opponent and audience.
• Use wisdom and good faith when agreeing a match with your opponent.
•We recommend avoiding Timeouts. If by an extreme circumstance you must use it, you are not allowed to do it without a first “transgression” and consequent first warning on the chat.
Ex: my opponent exceeds the time one turn, I warn him I’ll timeout next time.



TEAM CREATION AND APPLICATION TO THE TOURNAMENT

• Before you create your team on Fumbbl, I highly suggest that you use an excel sheet or my little army builder online to create your team and make sure it adds up to 1100 TV.

• Once you have decided on your setup, your Team should be made via this link.

• Select your race and team name (see the Useful links section below for advice on making a FUMBBL team)

• On the team page, there is no need to change ‘Progression’ from ‘Standard’ to ‘None’.

• Select all of your players, re-rolls, etc. and click ‘submit for approval’.

• Ensure your team complies with the FUMBBL disclaimer pop-up.

• The following screen allows then you to select skills. Depending on your package please chose the no skill option for remaining skills.

• When ‘save’ is pressed to confirm your skill choices, there is no pop-up or conformation screen. You can check your skills have saved correctly by navigating away from the screen and then checking ‘Team Options’ on your team page.

• If you have skill slots that are not used because you have reached your limit of skills, please use the (no skill) option.

You must select all skills before the tournament;

NAF coaches should record their NAF nick and NAF number in the team bio section following team creation. This will help us in the future recording and ranking of online games.

Inducement(s) you wish to use should be left out of your team creation process and listed in the team bio.

• Excess money needs to stay on the bank and must not be used to buy inducements except intended ones mentioned in your teams Bio.

• When you play a match in the tournament, select your listed inducements when the client loads up as you would normally by spending your remaining treasury as petty cash.

• It is important that you only use the inducments that you have declared in your team bio.

• In the event that non ‘rostered’ inducments are selected in the client by a coach, the match result will be void and the game awarded to the opponent.

Click the ‘group members’ tab and then use the ‘apply for membership’ dropdown.

I have made a youtube video to show how to create a team



ONLINE RANKING NAF MEMBERSHIP

• All Games between NAF members are recorded on the NAF Homepage and will be used to calculate the NAF online Rankings.

• Even though a NAF membership is not mandatory, we highly encourage to become Member of the NAF, because:

o 10$ paypal of 5$ in person should be doable for everyone, already to just to support the NAF.
o Tracking your online rankings and enabling your opponents to play for their ranking is always fun.
o You get goodies every time you renew your membership
