    It's becoming more obvious which teams are going on.

    But for those who do not go on to become mutated underworld goblins there is still the traditional path available.

    The "All goblin mash"

    Rules - Straight playoff, random matchups, no holds barred. Star players, secret weapons - anything you can bring on the pitch (except too many players) is allowed.

    What I'm doing here right now is gauging for interest to see how many teams think their goblins have not suffered enough.

    So far I've got:
    1. Smurfville FC
     
  2. Barninho

    I could still make the playoffs if GB fails to beat Rusty, but if I don't I'd be well up for another game or two.

    Ok, but I think the minimum size for a league is 4. So I've set up a league for that, hoping someone else does want to play on through the Crunched Cup for UEI:GRF

    Look for Crunched Cup for UEI:GRF in the league finder, and use the password fail to enter. If we get to four, it is gametime.

    Mummer's Farce, Smurfville FC and Bad Candy are in. One more goblin team needed to get some playoffs done.

    (There will not be any time limit for playing the games, as long as the games are finished before CCX is over, just grab a moment when you have some spare time)

    Sure why not, since I've decided now not to take them in to CCX.

    Right, then it's game on:

    Smurfville FC (Dreamy) vs Bad Candy (drdodger)

    and

    Mummer's Farce (Altashheth) vs Reik River Raiders (Gallows Bait)

    Altashheth, when's good for you? I'm free most evenings from around 20.00 BST (19.00 GMT). Right now Wednesday is booked for my OCC match, but otherwise I'm good.

    dodger - sometime this weekend (Friday/Saturday) should be best, very late Friday probably best this time as well, if it works for you. Otherwise I might be open most of Saturday, but I am supposed to book up a tabletop game during Saturday in case my opponent ever gets back on that, so Friday 24 UK time is probably best (for me).

    BB Manager league created:

    Name: Graduate Recuitment Fail
    Password: Fail

    2-0 win for the Raiders over the Mummers, but at a cost with a MNG troll and a dead fanatic.

    So Niko... didn't we just play? I'm having a rough time figuring this one out, as I've got out of town company Thurs thru Sunday. Are you available at all Sunday evening?

    Yea, we just did. But I just stuck with Cyanide's "random seeding" and this is what I ended up with.

    Sunday starting at 21:00 UK time works. (As does starting somewhere 8-10 UK time on Sunday, actually)
    Or we could save it to the next weekend, that works too.

    Hey GB, I may be working over most nights this week, and I'm off to Mexico on Sunday so it's probably best if we try to do something on Saturday.

    Saturday works, but with family, my evening is probably all I've got - usually 20.00 BST (19.00 GMT) onwards, not quite sure how that works out for you.
