    Nu blir jag också lite sugen. Vet någon nåt om formatet?
  • Va kul! Da må jeg nesten også sette meg på flyet...Formatet er som Eurobowl 2016/2017.

    Hot tip: en svenske vinner, men jeg spiller uavgjort mot Skuld på et bord langt nede.
  • @straume jag behöver tider så att jag kan beställa resa.
  • Detaljer kommer. Börjar bli dags nu :D

    The rules
    Border Ball is played with the Competition Rules Pack (CRP), provided by the NAF. They include rules for the three extra teams Slann, Underworld and Chaos Pact.

    The current CRP can be downloaded at https://www.thenaf.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/NAF-Rules-Update-v1-3.pdf

    We play according to the resurrection style of play. All coaches start each game with the same roster and all skills they registered before the tournament. There are no permanent deaths, and no Star Player Points will be awarded during the tournaments.

    Illegal procedures will not be called throughout the

    tournament.
    Team building
    Each coach build their team with a treasury consisting of 1,100,000 gold crowns.
    Note that this is 100k more than you normally get when making your team in Blood Bowl.

    Inducements
    Inducements are only available to tier 3 teams, with the following restrictions:
    All tier 3 teams can buy 0-2 Star Players, but must have at least 11 regular players before doing so.
    Goblins may buy 0-3 bribes
    Halflings may buy 0-1 master chef

    Starting skills
    All skills will be chosen before the tournament and will stay the same for all matches throughout the tournament. See the tier chart below for information on how many and which type of skills your selected team can choose. These skills are free.

    Additional skills
    If you are coaching a tier 2 or tier 3 team, you get some extra gold. You may use some or all of this extra gold to buy even more skills.

    Skills purchased in this way are priced as follows:
    Normal skill: 20k
    Double skill: 30k

    Unused cash is added to the team treasury and can be spent building the team as normal.
    You may not add more than one skill to a single player.
    Stat upgrades are not allowed.

    Tier 1
    Tier 1 teams are the best of the best. They get 6 normal skills.
    Wood Elf
    Undead
    Lizardmen
    Skaven
    Dwarf
    Chaos Dwarf
    Orcs
    Dark Elf
    Norse
    Amazon

    Tier 2
    Tier 2 teams can be pretty good, but fail to perform as well as the tier 1 teams.
    6 normal skills, 1 double skill and 20k extra cash may be able to fix this.
    Chaos
    Chaos Pact
    Human
    Khemri
    Slann
    Necromantic
    High Elf
    Elf
    Nurgle

    Tier 3
    Tier 3 teams are hard to play, and are simply not as good as the others. They get 6 normal skills, 1 double skill and 50K extra cash to help bridge this gap, but it will still be an uphill climb.
    Underworld
    Halfling
    Goblin
    Ogre
    Vampire

    Keeping up with time
    You will have 135 min timeframe to complete the match, if we see the game will not be completed withinn the time frame, we will set up a chess clock with a 2 min turn limit when 20 mins remain

    Draw and Scoring
    Draw for Round 1 will be random. Draw for subsequent rounds will use the so-called "swiss" system, where opponents with equal amounts of tournament points will be paired against each other.

    Tournament Scoring
    Tournament points will be awarded like this
    3 points for a win
    1 points for a draw
    0 points for a loss

    Betyder det att du kommer och försvarar din titel i Buzzqvarna? ;)
  • Det är möjligt. Men jag kollar nu om det kan bli så att jag kör från Tjörn till Moss, och sedan hem.

    Bilkörning är töntigt, riktiga pro-players åker flyg ;)

    (Med andra ord välkommen till Umeå :))
  • ingen bäst stunty? vad är det här för mobbing? :D

    Det var kjedelig!

    Bare av nysjerrighet (og med tanke på fremtidige turneringer, dette er noe vi stadig diskuterer); Når må en turnering være ferdig på søndag for at reisen skal løse seg slik at du er tilbake i tide?

    På mange måter er egentlig en 5-kampersturnering det beste (mindre stress, tidligere ferdig), men samtidig så vil de fleste (meg inkludert) gjerne få til 6 kamper når man først reiser noe sted.
  • Disclaimer: Jeg organiserer ikke denne altså :-) Det er miljøet i Moss som er inne i NAF-varmen. Her blir det nok noen nye norske BB-fjes!
  • För att söndagen ska funka hyfsat som resdag brukar det vara fyra matcher på lördagen. Då blir söndagen mindre stressig
  • Ja, fyra matcher på lördag och två på söndag brukar vara bra.

    Nu kanske jag kan komma iallafall. Har hittat en möjlig lösning.

    Bra! kul om det löser sig!
  • Nu är det klart, jag kommer till Moss. Om någon vill ha skjuts från Tjörn/Stenungssund/Uddevalla på torsdagen går det bra. Och om någon vill ha skjuts till Stockholm på söndagen går även det utmärkt.
  • Kanon, kul att det kommer nån mer rackare
  • Nu gick de dock ut med att de ställer in pga för få deltagare. :(

    Tråkigt att höra. Det verkar vara en nedgång i blood bowlandet nu under sommaren :(
  • Ok, då blir det Buzzqvarna då.
  • Kjedelig, kjedelig.

    Det kan se ut som Østlandet (det er altså Norge øst for fjellene) enda har et stykke å gå når det gjelder lokal deltakelse. Selv i Oslo Open var det jo nesten bare tilreisende. Merkelig...
  • Ja, men det ser likadant ut i Sverige numera. Både i Göteborg och Stockholm är det svagt lokalt deltagande i turneringar.
