    Hello all!

    It's that time again! A start of a new era at the OFL (Old World Football League). We are the only Cyanide league that offers full CRP rosters and star players! Come join the mayhem!

    The start of a new era means every team gets a reset to 1150 TV. We have a very entertaining race draft complete with 1st round, 2nd round, and 3rd round draft picks as well as Free Agent Cap Space that can be used for bargaining chips with other coaches. It's a great metagame that leads up to the actual season of gameplay. (This gives everyone ample opportunity to trade their draft position to select the race they want to play)

    An era is composed of 3 seasons, so once you have your team, you have the option of keeping them for the rest of the era.

    That being said, we already have a number of BBTactics coaches already in play. Come join the fun and experience full CRP rosters, all CRP star players, Free Agent players from past teams, awesome Glittering Prizes (Touch of Chaos on a Saurus o_O), bounties, coach predictions, and awesome competitive play!

    Our seasons are modeled after the NFL, so you have 16 games (1 game per week) to develop and fight your way into the playoffs.

    Each conference (3) is composed of 5 divisions, each with 4 teams. You play your division mates twice, and your division plays 2 other divisions. Division winners automatically go into the playoffs, leaving 3 to fight for a wild card pick.

    This is a very fun league, and once you join, you're in! All are free to join, but we're specifically looking for European coaches.

    Come join us! Old World Football League

    Its a great and interesting league, a very different style to most other leagues around.

    It seems very complicated initially, but its simpler than it looks and the commissioner and officers are really great about helping people set everything up! I strongly recommend it!

    As somebody said, the closes you're going to get in Cyanide to a tabletop experience so definitely worth a try and not too technically demanding at all.

    I found it a little overwhelming at first but after I got used to the little finesses of the league I find it VERY enjoyable. Only took a game or two to get used to it to.

    Highly recommended!

    Yep, definitely worth checking out for coaches that are looking for a more complete online BB experience.

    Sorry to be dropping out - work is hell.

    Highly recommended league. Lovely people, much easier to set up than I'd feared, and an amazing technical achievement by the admins.

    Yep, I can only echo my fellow coaches comments.
    There's a bit extra to absorb when you first get involved but its all pretty straight forward, and there's plenty of helpful coaches around to answer any questions you may have.

    Eeek! Looks like I will have to give some serious thought to my second & third choice races this time then. ;)

    Bumping this as there is potentially an LFC spot going to be up for grabs shortly

    Replace Slann with Pact and you with me and you'd still be right :D

    Ken - Keep an eye on Thul. He seems to be 50/50 on whether he will drop his Slann, and I think there's only one Slann in LFC at the moment, meaning you could start one there.

    Do they have a race limit on teams there?

    Yup - this is why they run a race draft at the start of each era (groups of three seasons at the end of which is a reset). Race draft is awesome :D

    When is this place likely to open?

    How tightly is the week roll kept to?

    I'm considering a league switch once I see out the current season and like the idea of trying the extended teams and players but, I don't want to overcommit to more games than I can commit to though, hence the need to see out the current season in one of my leagues at least.

    I had poke around on the OFL forum. I see it's just entered playoffs so I should have time to sort myself before next season. I've lodged an interest but don't have time to sort the technical side until tonight or tomorrow. I'll just have to hope the slots still open by the time I get it sorted.

    The matchweeks overlap during the weekend, so in practice you have nine days to play, and if you warn the commissioner ahead of time you can play pretty close to back to back if needed.

    Also with due warning it is sometimes possible to play games weeks ahead or days after if really needed, but I haven't been able to figure out when that might apply.

    Weeks do roll on Monday but the game for next week can be played during the weekend before. But that game will never get validated until the real matchweek has begun (unless you really need it to, to be able to play your next opponent early or something)
