Season 12 Sponsor
Coaches and players. Lend me thine ears.
Season twelve is looming on the horizon and many of you would like to know what that entails. What trappings or trials await your return to stadium and pitch?
Answers are available if you tune into your favorite Cabalvision channel hosted by ABC.
After intense and (largely) bloodless negotiations we have a new sponsor for this season. ABC (Associated Broadcasting Conjurers) has generously agreed to channel all the carnage straight to viewers homes for a nominal pay per view fee.
This season is host to the ABC (Associated Broadcasting Conjurers) Cup.
ABC is one of the longest running Cabalvision networks, popular with home viewers for its heady mix of sports coverage, light entertainment, programming for younger viewers, and exclusive access to gala events and celebrity awards ceremonies.
It truly is quite awful!
ABC hosts its own tournament annually in Nuln, the city made famous by its Engineering school and its young, limelight-loving Elector Countess, Emmanuelle von Liebwitz. It is always a star studded affair, with many red carpet appearances from sports stars and famous personages of the various arts popular in the Old World, from playwrights and poets to wandering players and troubadours. The fans tune in in huge numbers to see who's who and who they're with in the VIP boxes.
Special Rules for the ABC Cup (found din Spike Magazine issue 3)
During teh end of season play-off semi-finals and finals games, the team that wins the FAME will count as having that many extra Cheerleaders during that game (+1 or +2), to represent the additional support they gain from fair weather fans impressed by seeing the players rubbing shoulders with celebrities.
Prizes: As well as the standard financial bonuses for winning or placing in the league, the winning team will gain a bonus +1 FAME, up to a maximum of +3, for the first D3 games of the next standard league season they play in, representing a flood of new fans who quickly lose interest once normal campaigning is resumed and celebrity gossip dries up. Make a note of this on the team's roster.

Season 11 News
The moment you have all been waiting for has come...The announcement for season 11 of the MoB local league news!
After the crushing victory by the Orkland Raiders at the end of season 10. The Orcidas bloodthirsty team of negotiators were hard at work to bring the fame and fortune their way and to share some (as little as possible) with the local scene.
Season 11 has been sponsored by the Orcidas brand and will be host to the annual "Orcidas Team of the Year" tournament to coincide with our play-offs.
What does this mean? I am glad you asked.
The team that places first at the end of the season will get a single players worth of Orcidas made armor kit. In addition to the standard winnings available at the end of the league season, the team that wins the cup may give one randomly determined player a +1 AV increase, to represent their coming away from the Orcidas Team of the Year Tournament with splendid new kit made in the hard-wearing traditions of Orc couture.

P.S. After the gnome statisticians ran some numbers and argued with the goblins as to what those number mean. (Does 2+2 really equal 4?). The commission has declared that season 12 will begin with a hard reset on teams. All teams enrolled in that season will be fresh rookie teams with no seasons of experience. Season 13 will allow for experienced teams to resume enrollment and play.

Season 12 and planning for the future.
We will bring doing another soft reset to the league in season 12. Akin to what occurred in season 6 last year but with more forewarning.

The soft reset:
Teams enrolled for participation in season twelve will be restricted to one of two options.
1: new rookie teams.
2: returning teams are allowed with the restriction that no player on the roster may have more than 5 spp.

This ensures that all players starting the season will be unleveled. Though returning teams will have the advantage of fan factor and rerolls. Those advantages will be offset by standard inducements.

Season 10 Tailgate
Season 10 Tailgate to occur on 4/6
Each coach will be afforded two pick up games over the course of the day. These are separate from and in addition to any pick up games played during the regular season.

Rookie teams will be awarded two MVP's in the post match sequence. Returning experienced teams will be awarded one MVP as normal.
Rookie teams will also be treated to resurrection format and casualty results will not carry over past the event. Returning veteran teams will have injuries applied as normal league format.

Season Nine Post Season
Through thick and thin blood the regular season comes to an end. We move forward into the post season with anticipation to see who will come out on top with the championship!

Wild card round match ups are as follows:

For the Block Division:
Neil vs Doc
Chris vs Lance

For the Dodge Division:
Wade vs Benjamin
Jackson vs Jason

The next three weeks will be for the post season. All teams will be able to play up to three games in any combination of wild card, semi-final or pick up game.

All matches must be completed no later than 3/23/2019.
If you will be unable to commit to all post season matches. Let me know as soon as possible for a replacement coach to be found for the schedule.

Feb. 25th, 2019
With some inspiration from our friends a little south of us. We will be adding a new factor into our league. We will be holding an annual league tournament outside of normal season play.

This tournament will take place after the current season running during the two weeks between season nine and ten.
From March 3rd through March 16th. All matches must be completed within that time.

MOBBBL Cup is the premiere tournament for the MOB Blood Bowl League. 8 Coaches will enlist one of their teams that have completed at least 1 season in the MOB store league. The first 8 coaches to enroll and pay the 15 dollar entrance fee will be granted a spot in this tournament. This tournament fee goes to helping pay for website used to run our store league, our astounding tournament trophy and other store goodies.
This tournament is a single elimination bracket tournament. (see attached image)

This means that if you lose a single game you are out of the tournament. First round opponents will be decide randomly. This tournament is also unique because all SPP, miss next games and serious injuries such as stat drops will carry over to the next game.
TV differential will also play a factor as well. Teams will be granted inducements exactly as if it were a league game. However, some inducements will not be allowed. Here is a list of inducements you can NOT take;
● Star Players
● Special Play Cards

In order to make things fair and equal for every team enrolled we will not be using the rules for special stadiums, special referees nor special balls.
All downtime redrafting must be complete to participate in the tournament.
This tournament aims to bring the best teams the league has ever seen into a single tournament seeking glory and fame. With that being said this is a competitive tournament. Coaches will bite and claw their way to the top and kill anyone that stands in their way. This tournament is also a great risk to rising star players in the league. All SPP, injuries and deaths will carry over to the season should you enroll that team into another season. These matches will not be counted for downtime redrafting nor will they cause downtime to be done.

Plucky Cup!
Season Eight League Updates:
The Elven Union has made an unprecedented move for leagues not properly representing the elven player base. They are sponsoring Elven Luckstone Award for this season. (reference Spike magazine issue 3 page 31)

The championship team of this season will be awarded the Plucky Cup. Additionally, during the end season play-off semi-finals and finals games, one player on each team will be touched by the greatness of the Luckstone. Randomly select one player from each team. That player gains the Pro skill for the duration of the match. If that player already has the Pro or Loner skill, randomly select another player.

Alongside the standard financial bonuses for winning or placing in teh league, teh winning team gains an additional team re-roll for hte duration of the next standard league season they play in. This re-roll does not cost the team any gold pieces but does increase their Team Value.

Additionally, the player on the wining team who was awarded the MVP for the final match gains the Pro skill -- increasing their cost accordingly. If the MVP already has the Pro or Loner skill, randomly select another player to gain the Pro skill.

Standard season rules changes:
Championship teams are awarded additional gold of winnings. First place is awarded 100k; second place 60k and this place 30k. (No longer awarding an additional dice of earnings to first place)

Spike Magazine issues 1, 2 and 3 inducements are now available for use.

Season Seven Post Season!
We are into the play-offs and wait with baited breath to see who shall rise to the top!

For the wild card round one:
Da New York Big’uns vs Moonclaw Mooncrushaz
Orkland Raiders vs Orazca Coronas
Slaughtering Bumpkins vs Disciples of Squee

Everyone else is allotted up to three pick up games.

Remember that the post season runs for three weeks for all three games. Through 9/15.

If you won't be able to play all of your playoff games in a timely manner, then the playoff spot will be awarded to the next coach (e.g. either 2nd place in the division, or the next would be Wild Card team.)
Star Players and Mercenaries are NOT available as inducements during the MoB Play-offs.
The Playoff games draw large crowds; roll 4 dice instead of 2 for determining the gate for the games.
MoB Championship game teams are awarded an addition dice worth of winnings. Note that the winner may still reroll winnings, but may only reroll one of the two dice.
Miss Next Game injury results will be cleared from players after the regular season prior to the first post season match and again between the wild card match and championship match. They will apply to all other matches.

Upcoming League Changes
League Announcement:
Season Seven Updates and Changes (Edited 6/10/2018)

With reflecting on the past year that we have been playing many matches of Blood Bowl. The game we have all enjoyed as a community.

With the start of the seventh season we will be doing a "soft reset" to all teams. What does this mean? I am glad you asked.
First: Teams enrolling in season seven will have a maximum team value of 1300 and no players that have earned star player points. All rookie players or players with less than six SPP, but those teams that redraft may keep their team name and if they have extra funds they can use that for coaching staff or re-rolls. But no team with a TV of 1301+ will be enrolled in the upcoming season.

Second: Treasury will affect team value. Treasury money exceeding the 100k will count towards team value. (There is another option to require it to be spent as petty cash. I don't think we are quite to that point)
If treasury is equal to or lower, team value is not affected and only rely on players, re-rolls, staff etc. as usual.

Third: Retiring players. Once a player wants to retire it is permanent for all future seasons. Automatically increasing their redrafting cost by 20k for each season completed.

team enrollment will be done as a blind listing. Each coach will inform the league commission of which team they will be playing during the upcoming season. The commissioning staff will not disclose what team/race(s) are being enrolled during the season. Each coach may choose whether they want to disclose their team or not.

We have a good community here. Let's work together to nurture a friendly, fun and casual league.
