FlashMOBB!!!
Roll up to the first (and possibly last) ever FlashMOBB event. Melbourne Blood Bowl League(MBBL) invites you to join us for a day of pre-season matches in our casual MOBB setting, a setting so casual we no longer remember what MOBB stands for.

On June 24, bring yourself and your MOBB team(s) along to Good Games CBD for a guaranteed 3 games worth of fun. There'll be random giveaways all day, including loot from Blitzmania 1 & 2.
First game begins at 10am, second at 12.50pm, third at 3.30pm.

New Commissioner Lineup
Hey All,
After years of service both Dazed and Sharper are stepping down as commissioners. They've been around as long as I can remember, helping out in one way or another and have been pretty instrumental in making MBBL the success it is. Big thanks to them both.

Going forward, commissioner duties will be performed by me (Moraiwe), Fassbinder and Temp. We'll do our best not to run things into the ground.

If you do need to contact a commissioner, rather than email individuals directly I suggest you use the commissioner account: commish.mbbl@gmail.com - that way you don't have to remember who's in charge at any given time.

Rules clarifications
2 clarifications for S17 onward.

1. To utilise the D3 MVP, coach has to send the nominated players to the Admins at the time of requesting the forfeit.
It is not up to the admin to ask for them.

2. The main card decks used in MBBL are the following;
Random Events,
Magical Memorabilia,
Dirty Tricks,
Heroic Feats,
Benefits of Training,
Any other Games Workshop cards can be added to the available cards with the agreement of both coaches. A coach who possesses these cards must make them available to their opponent to review prior to drawing cards and then make them available for both players to draw.

Season 17 now open for entry
Pretty much as the heading states. You may now enter your chosen team into Season 17.
You can do this even if you intend on playing MOBB games before the season begins.

Team Painting and Player Identification
A reminder to all our coaches out there. For reference the MBBL rule on this issue states;

"Any figures are welcome to be used, if positions are easily identifiable, and players are numbered as per their roster.

Star players don't have to be proper figures, once again, just must be recognisable.

Teams should be painted to a reasonable standard with at least 3 colours on them. Some leniency will be shown by commissioner, and no in game penalty apply, if the painting is showing progression throughout the season."

Rules Clarification - The Swift Twins
The MBBL ruling is the Swift Twins count as 1 star for the purposes of the 0-2 star players rule in inducements. This rule will be in place until the end of the Season 16 and then will be reviewed in light of any possible NAF/official clarifications on the subject.

MBBL Ruleset
The ruleset has been updated, and a few changes worth noting for Season 16:
Release of new Star Players. The MBBL website has been updated to reflect this;
New inducements. Note due to the new inducements in place the CRP Wizard is no longer an inducement option in MBBL;
New rosters for Goblins, and Chaos Pact as per the MBBL website (minor changes to each);
Skill clarifications which generally fall in line with previous CRP rules; and
Brettonians are now allowed in the MBBL league.

Season 16 schedule up.
The schedule is up for Season 16 and it all begins on July 21st. Please contact your opponents nice and early if you need to arrange a reschedule.

We have a few new players to the league this season - welcome to Marwin, Strmwng, Pip, UncleBarrels & Eightlives.

Exctingly, we're guaranteed to have a new MBBL champion this season as Gold Division is filled with players who've never won the top honour before.

Good luck to all.

You may hire when ready!
All the new players from Death Zone 2 have been added to the database (Doom Diver & Ooligan for Goblins, Orc Renegade for Chaos Pact, and a number of Star Players) and are legal to be used in both MOBB and MBBL matches.

S16 Now Open... for Bretonnians too!
Season 16 is now up on the menu. I've entered the teams I know are playing this season. Please check to see if your team is there - if not, go to your admin page and enter your chosen team.

Also, as the heading suggests, we are now allowing Bretonnian teams into MBBL proper.

Expensive Mistakes
Please note that if your EM roll has not been made as at the Wednesday prior to Game Night then a commissioner may make the roll for you.

This roll is part of the post match sequence and in theory should be completed soon after the match has been played. We are not going to enforce that however your next opponent should have some time to work out what roster they are facing prior to your match.

Season 15 Fixture
It's all up there now. No pesky X-Div rounds this season. But there is a filler team in Div 3 that James, Me and anybody else who sticks their hand up will be using to make up the numbers.
- Moraiwe
 
 
Jan. 3rd, 2017
Expensive Mistakes
The Expensive Mistakes rule has been switched on for the league. Unfortunately the website wants coaches to roll it for each team prior to the upcoming season.

DO NOT ROLL FOR EXPENSIVE MISTAKES PRIOR TO SEASON 15.

The commissioners will turn off this requirement prior to Season 15 however its a bit of grunt work to do so for all teams.

MOBB Games - Every Thursday Night
For the foreseeable future, I will be running MOBB nights every Thursday Night at Games Lab, CBD from 7pm. Any interested parties who are there by 7pm will be guaranteed a match (ie. if we have odd numbers, I'll sit out). People getting there earlier can of course start early if there's an opponent about.

I'll provide blank record sheets so you can keep track of the recordable events. All you need to do is bring your usual BB gear and a printout (preferably 2 printouts) of the team you wish to use. Most days, I'll have a tablet or PC available so that we can setup matches and log entries on the spot if desired.

You'll find me either be on the main shop floor, or downstairs in the bar. If you can't make it by 7pm, give me a call and if I'm still available to play, I'll happily sit around a while and wait for you.

Brettonians
We are now allowing Brettonians to be used in MOBB league games. The roster is the same as which is being used in Cyanide's Blood Bowl 2. There are currently no plans to include them in MBBL.

Images for the positions and race logo have yet to be added, if you have any good ones to suggest, email the commish.
