Waterbowl Weekender

Hi all,

The next tournament in our Online NAF series will be a little different. Fed up of the cold weather? Crashed out of the FUMBBL Cup? Trying to shift the post World Cup blues? You need the Waterbowl Weekender! The event will last for one weekend only, so make sure you mark your calendars for the 28th / 29th November 2015 NOW!

The Waterbowl is the home of Manchester's tabletop league, and every February / September, coaches descend on the North West Gaming Center for the Waterbowl and Stunty Slam tournaments. Our online tournament winners will win a free ticket to the relevant event (group winners to the Waterbowl, Stunty winners to the Slam).

The rulespack for our tournament can be found here or here. It's also summarised below.

Applications open at 22:00 server time on Friday 20th November, and you can make a team via this link and apply to one of three groups according to your timezone. Coaches wishing to play in European timezones should apply here, North American timezones here, and Oceanic timezones here.

Rulespack Summary

• Non-progression Blood Bowl!
• Team treasury: 1.10 M gold
• Format: 6 games of Swiss in ~ 30-40 team groups formed according to timezone preference (Europe, America, Oceania). The size / number of groups will depend on applications
• There will be no playoff - group winners / highest placed Stunties are all winners!
• 3 rounds Sat. 28th Nov. 3 rounds Sun. 29th Nov. (exact schedule according to timezone below)
• Teams will be awarded 5 'normal' skills and 1 double for all games

Tournament Schedule

• Saturday 28th November

- Game 1: 11:00
- Game 2: 14:00
- Game 3: 16:00

• Sunday 29th November

- Game 4: 11:00
- Game 5: 14:00
- Game 6: 16:00

• In the event a timezone group does not attract > 12 entrants, only 3 rounds will be played on one day (Saturday 28th November)

• For European timezone entrants, the shown round start times are Central European Time (CET / FUMBBL server time). For North American entrants, times are Central Standard Time (CST), and for Oceanic entrants Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT)

Any questions? Shout below!

Cheers,

Phil / Goo.

The OP is updated! Your application to the online version of the Waterbowl Weekender can be made on Friday!

Please take a look at the schedule and ensure you'll be available for 6 games before applying. Games will be forfeited 15 minutes after the round starts if you do not arrive to play.

Any questions? Shout!:D

Yep! As stated, team application opens on Friday. That skillset is in place to complete the WCWU. It will change in a few days.

First teams accepted to the group! No doubt, as ever, applications will peak the closer to kick-off we get, but don't leave it too late! When your timezone kicks off, it's too late. ;)
