Manaleak.com Birmingham Blood Bowl League: BOOTCAMP!
♦Train to be a Blood Bowl Coach♦
Pick up the skills you need to lead a team of rapscallion rookies out onto the glistening green fields of the Blood Bowl pitches. Learning the game isn’t too difficult, but knowing how to master it takes time, practice, and, above all, guts for glory! At the Bootcamp you will be brought up to date with the current ruleset for Blood Bowl 5th Edition so you can be ready to pull up your socks and put on your cap to coach your own team come the re-release of this iconic game.
The Commissioner of the league (Da Commish), along with a few aides, will arrange a tutorial session for you if you want to get to know the game and how it works. Just join us and leave a comment on our Facebook page or in the comments below.
♦Earn Your Skulls♦
Every coach benefits from a little practice – Nuffle, the god of Blood Bowl, only knows how much the teams do enough practice drills of their own (not that it helps them)! Each time you play you can earn yourself a “skull”:
The skulls are so Da Commish can see who has the know how and wherewithal to compete in the Manaleak.com Birmingham Blood Bowl League (MBBL).
Exhibition game coaches, who aren’t concerned with the death, destruction and rise to stardom that comes with league play needn’t be concerned about earning skulls. Their matches are about prowess, finesse and a whopping big pay check from the sponsors!
Coaches who are eager to join the league need to earn themselves no fewer than three skulls to enter. You can do this by going through a tutorial, earning you your very first MBBL skull, and/or playing exhibition matches with your fellow coaches. Now I know what you veterans will be thinking: ‘Now you listen here, young’un. I’ve gone done play’d me a heap o’ games – dagnabbit – why do I need to be goin’ ‘n’ jumpin’ through hoops?’ Well, you can earn your skulls by raising yourself a protege who aspires to one day fill your well-worn boots and be a renowned coach in his or her own right! The league is about camaraderie as much as it is about unleashing a beating on the pitch side, so, to start things as we mean to continue, everyone wanting to play in the MBBL will need to have three skulls, no ifs, no buts, no whats and no wherefores.
♦Sign Up for the League♦
Coaches who have earned themselves three skulls will be eligible to put their name down as a coach for the Manaleak.com Blood Bowl League (MBBL). The date for the kick-off is a little way off, as we want to give plenty of up and comers and the well-founded coaches time to familiarise themselves with the game and their fellow coaches beforehand, but not too far in the distance to put off getting your skulls earned! We’ll let everyone know when sign-up has begun through our Facebook page and here on the Manaleak.com website. We will also give you all plenty of heads up as to when the league will be kicking – off. If you feel you’re ready to gather up a rag tag bunch of ruffians and shape them into the Griffs and Morgs of tomorrow’s Blood Bowl, then come and join the league and show your Blood Bowl comrades what you’re made of!
Most importantly, and this goes without saying, whether you’re playing exhibition matches when Orca Cola, Dwarf & Decker or Zombway feel like sponsoring you, or if you’re in it for the long haul with a league team, we want you to enjoy yourself and have fun playing this wacky and hilarious game of fantasy football.
