The headline news is we are going to delay the start of next season of BC2 for a week till the 14th of July. So expect to see divisions on the 7th. This is so we can develop, implement and let you know changes designed to help new teams get straight into the league. Over the last few seasons we have seen a drop off in numbers and one of the main reasons given is the imminent release of BB3. There have been two themes when it comes to BB3 which have both led to the same problem of a very developed league with few new teams coming in. Coaches either drop out in the expectation of a new game in a few months time or keep playing their old team till it either dies or gets bloated (I was planning on Dark Elves for 4 seasons before BB3 dropped and it’s looking like double that now). This has made the gap between old and new get bigger and bigger especially as the release date keeps changing. To combat this we are looking at giving new teams a better start. Whilst we are willing to look at any reasonable ideas to do this, it is likely to involve new teams starting as custom teams with a rules pack. We want to avoid the obvious traps of 10 guard+MB dwarf teams, all Big Guys starting with blodge or 2 clawpomb and blodge Wolves with 9 Zombies whilst still allowing new teams a boost so they feel competitive. We also think it is also only fair to give you plenty of notice of this change if we decide to go ahead with it so the extra week allows us the chance to get this right (or as close to right as possible) and allows you time to make an informed decision. At the moment this change will only be for the BC2 and any future competitions are likely to be much more traditional but if it’s a roaring success you never know. Finally if anyone has any suggestions feel free to make them below but as a veteran of many a rules discussion please bear in mind that different people have different opinions and to please keep any discussion civil.
