The Solent Blood Bowl League (SBBL) is starting soon. To welcome some new players who may never had played the game and also embrace the new reboot with cool models the rules are as follows. I recognise the league needs to both support occasional players and die-hards.

We have had leagues and games for many years and mostly the club plays a variety of other games.

Rules are

1. We want players to have matches and have the safety of tying the game.
The first month of January all games are friendlies. Any number of games can be played and won't count towards for league results at the end of the season. Any experince can be counted and teams should use this period to develop.

2 New models.
To encourage the hobby a bonus of 2 fanfactor will be awarded for painted teams. A second bonus of 2FF will be awarded if you painted the team yourself. Teams will start with 1million gold as in the rules book.

3 The 'League' will run a number of 'Seasons'. Season 1 will be from Feburary 2017 till June. From July we will restart and call this 'Season 2'. I don't see why we need to stop ever and I'm happy to continue this for future years.

4 The 'Season' will run and all games are to be recorded. At the end of a season each team submits its best three results. A win in 3 points, a draw 1 point and 0 for a lose. The top two teams will play each other in a final, with both teams getting 100,000 gold for making the final. Hopefully we get this game played within four weeks and the next season will begin.
(no semi game will be played because we are far too causal)
Tie breaks are in order: touchdowns scored plus casualties scored over the season, fanfactor, tds received against casualties received, number of players on the roster.

5 Any teams that have been used in a prior league or cup within the Solent Wargames club can be used. *Note point 7 applies.

6 The 'League' will run a number of 'Seasons'. Season 1 will be from Feburary 2017 till June. From July we will restart and call this 'Season 2'. I don't see why we need to stop ever and I'm happy to continue this for future years.

7 End of season we will retire players and rehire as described in the new deathzone campaign book. I will edit this statement to make it clear to older players in the next week.
The number of games defined in a 'season' will be based on whoever plays the most games in the club. Ie Betty plays 11 games in season 1, we will re-hire on the basis of 11 games with touchdowns and casualties.
Spiralling expenses will be set at 1550TV. This is quite low and reflects we have a number of casual players who we wish to enjoy the game as much as die-hards.
Retirement will be in effect.

Cards and advanced rules
The 5th edition now offers cards for every game and we will use this because it's fun. Rules have evolved and with new models coming we will continue to adopt new rules if they appear - like the new Halfling ref for example.
All the optional skills will be used, so therefore we will have pilling on.

9
Game results are to be reported on the forum. Any results posted that feature a match report will receive a 10,000 gold bonus to both teams. This is to encourage our hobby and may stop after the first season 1.
Inflammatory forum posts or social network posts shall cause the offending coach to lose their income on their next game. This should not occur, but it's to ensure we play casual and have fun and don't get hot about anything.

10
Juck will be the commissioner and should be consulted for any disputes.
*
Hot off the press and Blood Bowl .com is running an event from February for a Blitzmania league. We hope to tie into this as far as possible when we know the details.
