This is a thread just to list all the possible Cyanide leagues to play in. It is a sticky now, it might become linked to from the "Useful Cyanide-related things" instead, but that's later. Leagues will get edited into this post if you post them in this thread. Blood Bowl 2 Leagues are handled in this thread: Link: --- BBT leagues Crunch Them All [CTA] - A "pick-me-up" league that allows all teams whatever their background to join. Rookie teams that join CTA can also move on to other BBT leagues if they play six CTA games or less. http://bbtactics.com/forums/crunch-them-all-open-cyanide-league-t618/ Crunch Them All - League for Exhibition games [CTALE] - A short league (five games) usually run between Crunch Cups (see below). Allows rookie or CTA(zero to six games) teams, and is mostly seen as a way to get a few extra games in for the Crunch Cup, or to get to play something else a while. Crunch Cup (It borrows this subforum from the CC) Crunch Cup [CC] - An intermittent Cup league reseeded every time according to whatever arcane rules the current commissioner dreams up. Latest practice is to have eight teams per group during the group play part and then use a separate league for the playoff part if needed. Teams failing to reach the playoffs can usually partake in the "Crunched Cup" [CrC] playoffs instead. Teams allowed into the CC are rookie teams, CTA teams (0-6 games) and teams from CTALE or previous CC (both of which can also have played up to two CTA games between seasons) Big Crunch [BC] - A persistent league with promotions and demotions between tiers and divisions. Currently at 50 teams. Rookie teams only, nine games per season. Big Crunch -- International leagues Orca Cola Championship The OCC is a persistent league with promotions and demotions between tiers and divisions. Currently at 240 teams. Rookie teams, or teams that have 5-9 games from their feeder league SSC (Snotling Soda Championship) are allowed. Started out Euro-Centric, but is pretty international now. They also have some minor leagues occasionally running from the forums. Orca Cola Championship - Old World Football The OFL is a persistent league modelled closer to American Handegg, er, Football, with conferences and cross-conference play. Seasons are 16 games long before playoffs. The league uses plenty of third-party software and doo-dads to be able to allow play with races and star players not supported in vanilla Cyanide. (Like Slann, and the various chainsaw starplayers). Every third season the league is reset back to 1150 TV for all teams. The league was divided into one American and one European half. They also had some other leagues running from the forums, like OFTL.

Fun League Forums! -- European leagues UK Blood Bowl League League currently has 144 teams across 4 tiers. League structure is divided into two halves East and West. The top two from the premiership on each side go into an end of season playoff to decide the grand champion. Teams stay in the same side of the structure until they get relegated or reroll. Coach base is heavily UKcentric - there are a few stateside but the majority of games would need to fit in with a UK schedule. UKBBL - New Ogham League The New Ogham league, is a small league that normally has 3 or 4 divisions of 10 teams each. They also run a knock-out "Super Bowl" tournament and some racial or themed tournies. It's well run and worth looking at if coaches are looking for a small private league with some decent coaches and a friendly environment. New Ogham BB League • Index page - RPS Leagues They have two main leagues - the Divisions of Death and the Open. The general environment is very relaxed with ten day weeks and extensions granted for those that are struggling to get the fixtures played (within reason). Divisions are 4 teams in a shallow tier system which sees a lot of team movement so you aren't playing the same faces all the time. Divisions are decided by a live draw on Steam. The league operates a loose form of racial quotas to ensure a decent mix of races. Blood Bowl over at RPS -- North American Based Leagues USABloodweiser Is a fairly small league (32 teams over 4 divisions). Play times mostly around the US East Coast, but there's a fair number of Euro players and Euro prime hours usually work out. Nightworm does a good job as commissioner.
