    Some might have been waiting for it: The Crunch Them All League - Exhibition season IV

    So, what is CTALE?

    Well, as the name might imply, it is an exhibition league, to allow teams from Crunch Them All to run the circuit and gain some more money or experience before hitting the main stage. And most importantly, make a name for themselves and perhaps build up a little bit of rivalry.

    The League will have seeded divisions with six teams in every division, meaning the season will be five weeks long. Seeding will be based upon team TV (current and potential) modified by team history and coach history and if possible a nod towards spreading races out for variety.

    There will be no play-offs for the League - you are mostly playing for the glory, and the fame. It will probably be nothing but the glory. ;)

    Matches are played weekly, organised via these forums, with the league operating in Classic rules mode with 4 minute turns and standard inducements only.

    Since this is a "Semirookie" League, teams will be eligible to enter if they are either:

    a) Rookie teams
    b) Rookie teams with up to 6 games played in the Crunch Them All open league
    c) Teams from an earlier CTALE who have played a total of six games or less in CTALE and CTA leagues only.

    Teams that have played in the CTALE will be allowed to go on to the Crunch Cup afterwards. They are also eligible to the "two games between seasons" between CTALE and the Crunch Cup (but if you intend to take the team straight on to the CC you might have to hurry, depending upon how soon after the CC starts).

    If you would like to enter, please respond below. When filling out the league teams will be accepted in the order of the list. Just provide your coach name, team name and race. You can also apply to the Crunch Them All League - Exhibition in-game, password stale

    Team values and eligibility will be reviewed prior to actual admission. Coaches whose teams don't meet the rules for entry will be passed over. (And informed about this.)

    Applications should preferably be in as soon as possible.

    Once the Crunched Cup playoffs are over and the league is suitably filled, seeding will commence, and the season should start at the end of that week.

    -

    Note: The CTALE season should end mid-June, and the Crunch Cup XIV is currently planned to begin sometime in August. There is room for something in between.

    -

    So - write your name and preferably your team name too in this thread, so there is an order to admit people in if we do not get even groups of six. (Currently hoping to get six at all - but I might be surprised :D)

    Hopefully in a couple of weeks time, but technically I guess it can start later and have a bit prolonged matchweeks during summer.

    Please note that I will be away on a business trip from May 7 to May 16, and I won't be able to play games during that time. If this interferes with the start of CTALE, I'd rather give it a pass.

    No earlier start than May 12, so you'd have half a week to play. Possibly the start will be later than May 12, in which case you should have a full week to play.

    I'll apply with a team too.
    Orc, Nurgle, High Elf or Dwarf (Or Chaos or Khemri) - I'll have to look at the old vote. I think "Spitting Rotters" (Nurgle) came in second place when Kallahir Swifts got to play.

    Fallow, is that a Seuss reference, or am I seeing things which aren't there?

    Bone, Thugs & Harm = Green Eggs & Ham, right?

    Hilariously, no. Bone Thugs and Harmony was a boy-band from the mid-nineties. they were 'soft' thugs singing about their lost homies...

    anyway, now you are inviting me to change the orc name to 'Green Legs & Scram'
