Crunch Cup XI: Sponsored by Fatshark Group Assignments & Kick Off Instructions All, please find below your group assignments which have been seeded as fairly as possible on the basis of team and coach experience as well as team values and balance. Group 1 contains the most experienced teams (and consequently 3 past Crunch Cup winners) whilst Groups 8 to 10 contain rookie teams. Groups will be assigned in-game later today (Sunday 24 March 2013) and the season will kick off from midnight (0:01 GMT Monday 25 March 2013). In the interest of easing into things and baring in mind that the initial match schedules will not be posted until later today, Match Days 1 and 2 will be extended weeks. Group match arranging threads containing each Match Day's pairings will be posted to the Matchmaking & Results sub-forum later today and then on a weekly basis going forward through the season. Please note that your forum account must be logged in to view the Matchmaking & Results sub-forum. For further details regarding what is expected of you when arranging matches, please see the rules thread here: http://bbtactics.com/forums/uei-crunch-cup-rules-t2382/ Once your games are completed, replays must be uploaded to BB Manager in order for us to validate your match in game. Details regarding our BB Manager requirements and upload responsibilities can also be found in the rules thread above. If you are new to BB Manager, please also see our help guide here: http://bbtactics.com/forums/blood-bowl-manager-how-do-i-get-work-t2360/ Games that are not uploaded to BB Manager for validation may be subject to administration, so this is an important requirement, it is also used to determine group standings and play off qualification.
