Do not use this thread as a general chat thread, please keep the topic on the League.

Rules

Registration and Preparation


There are no more than 12 slots available, though 8 would be enough for a good League game.
If you think you might be interested in joining, make it be known here.
Depending on the Number of Players, the League Tournament might run anywhere from 7 to 11 weeks.
If you cannot commit to participating during that time, you have until a week before the Draft to back out and give your slot to someone else.



Team Selection

All Teams will be chosen During the Draft.
Do Not post any information about your desired team ahead of time.
Everyone gets 120 credits to use towards purchasing a team during the Draft.
Everyone is limited to no more than 2 - 10 credit draft/item purchases during the initial draft.
Everyone who participates gets 3 credits per week to spend on their teams once the tournament begins.
Once the Tournament begins, every player may choose to purchase an additional 2 – 10 credit draft/item for their team
4 - 10 credit draft/item per team maximum
Team size – Minimum of 5 team members / Maximum of no more than 12 team members [Does not include characters or items that can clone/reproduce themselves. Permanent fusing of two characters counts as 1 character.].
Once Teams are selected, a Reference Thread will be posted where each player can post their team



Game Play

All Strategies must be submitted the night before the posting of the matches. If no strategy is received, that counts as a Void
Half the Matches will be posted Monday Morning, the other half on Wednesday Morning.
Winners will be determined by votes.
Debate and defending you team is not required, but it is strongly recommended. Most matches in the past have been won based on who makes the best defense.
All players must make an honest effort to vote on each match.


Other

During the Draft, each player gets to choose one Arena. Once the required number of Arenas has been chosen from the list, they will be randomly assigned one-per-week. No duplicating of Arenas.

Just to point out - I'm Lamela.

"Erik Lamela" is a football (soccer) player I like. But I think he's going to be leaving the team I support, so I changed my name.

Some of the information (like arenas) should probably go to the wiki instead.

Things like the participants and their teams, I'll edit in the opening post.

I ask that those who come back from the previous forum please post here to confirm they still want to participate.

And if you have a new user name, please say so.

The MunchKING
04-30-2014, 05:02 PM
Well if you did all the changes to the Wiki, I'd be mostly worried about confirming who was on the original and matching them up with who they are now.

Oh shoot. All those links are going to be dead links. Someone's going to have to go back through the archived CBR forums and recover all the posts with all the information on them.

EDIT: Considering the nature of recent events, a slight delay in starting this would be convenient.

Since I was originally GMing this League, I'm alright with delaying it. Not sure if Siriel wants me to continue to GM it or if he wants to do it.

Siriel
04-30-2014, 05:28 PM
I'm going to be way too busy in the next few days. I have to finish my exams and write up everything that needs reposting for Rumbles.

I only made this thread to make it clear that the League was still allowed and because that way we can simply continue using it for future seasons.

The draft is postponed at least a week, maybe a little longer, to give everyone time to do what needs be done. I'll post a new date and time for the draft as soon as I think we're ready for it.

Normally I wouldn't have a problem, but it is very late in the game and past the registration date. If someone who is already signed up is looking for a partner, then that is fine by me. Otherwise you might have to wait for the next tournament. Ask around and let us know if you find a partner. If so, your in.

The tentative date for the Draft is May 11th. That gives us an extra week to do whatever needs to be done, including fix the Arena list, which I'll start working on today. I've heard back from everyone except Estrecca, I think.

In consideration of Dalak, I'm holding off on making a date for the draft until I hear from him (or the equivalent).

KJS

If you guys do a pre-draft, I'll make a point of checking the site on an hourly basis - at least - so there's no long waiting for me.

Tami
05-02-2014, 06:29 AM
Still working out details, but the Pre-draft will start sometime on Saturday, May 10th and run through the weekend. The final Sprint Draft, if needed, will be sometime on Monday May 12th. The League its' self will then start, tentatively, on Monday May 17th. Hopefully by then all teams will be finished and all the kinks will be worked out.

I still have to finish the arenas, will have them ready by the 10th.

Tami
05-03-2014, 07:16 AM
We will proceed here as planned, and hope everything works out. Pre-draft will begin Sat. May 10th (time still to be determined). I will have the details available before then.

Correction: Date may have to be pushed back a week to insure everyone is available for it. Will post dates when I am more certain about it.

Tami
05-03-2014, 05:51 PM
Things has changed, again. Will have to postpone this until at least the 17th. Will keep everyone posted as I learn more about the situation.

Tami
05-06-2014, 02:58 PM
So that I can start planning this, I need a final roll call. All those still in, say Aye! Then I can start planning for the draft and the League matches. The Draft will be in POre-Dreaft style and cover the weekend of the 17th and 18th, give or take a day depending on how fast it goes.

Maybe I should have rephrased this. Is anyone who signed up for this not going to be able t0 participate come May 17th? Also, is there anyone who hasn't signed up for this interested in it?

I thought that was an imposter using your name.

I told him to let me know if he ever decide to change it. Though, the more I learn about what happened here, the more I'm starting to think he can keep it. I was already spending less and less time on this board, and coming back to this doesn't really make me feel more enthusiastic.

And, after all, CBR should always have a Ghost. Maybe it's time I pass my mantle over to someone younger?


Only we really shouldn't be using this thread for non-league discussions.

Yeah, sorry. I actually mistook it for Downtown.

Tami

I'd actually consider adding anyone new who is interested in playing this time around, up until a week from today. As long as we have between 10 and 12 teams we are good to go.

For Reference: Rumbler's League Wiki (http://rumblers-league.wikispaces.com/home)

I will redo the Match Order before the Draft begins.

Josh
05-08-2014, 06:08 PM

Reminder, the League Draft begins Saturday May 17th at 12:00 Noon, EST. This is in Modified Pre-Draft style. Each Player gets up to 1 hour to make their two Choices, then the next person on the list has a turn. This will continue through the weekend up until Monday. If there are still Players who haven't used up all 120 points by Monday, we will have a Speed Draft Round then.

Anyone who won't be able to do the Draft, let me know and we can work something out.

Yup.

I'll write up a guide on the OP of the Draft thread as well so that there is no confusion. Though I'll be giving everyone a great amount of time, the faster we get through this the better. If anyone has concerns, problems or other questions now is the time to ask. Draft starts in about 2 days, be ready.

Tami
05-16-2014, 04:59 PM
Reminders to everyone:

1. Double check your list to make sure you have the numbers correct
2. I may post the thread early, don't start until I say go to keep things organized
3. We won't be choosing Arenas during the draft, I won't have them ready in time. We will get a chance to do that before the actual tournament begins.
4. Once everyone has chosen, I will make a thread for posting teams. You will have until the day before the start of the Tournament to do your write ups.
5. The Tournament will start Monday, May 26 (Memorial Day, U.S.).
6. Good luck, everyone. :)

Yes. Standard rules, except extended to one hour to start with. I figure eventually I'll cut that time down to 1/2 hour, then down to 15 minutes as the weekend progresses.

Pretty much this. Unlike most time-tricks his was just to 'reset', which isn't useful anymore.

The Darkhold and Darkhold Contract are two separate items. One is a book, the other a magical contract that gives the spells inside the book.

YOu know, I've always wondered why they are so varied in price: If you made the deal with the Book, then removing it from their posession shouldn't take away their power since it's a separate thing.

That would be because in addition to the spells contained within the book, the Darkhold Contract also includes Chthon providing raw magic power of a magnitude that makes Strange get serious.

Also, the soul removal thing, which can be situationally advantageous.

When I read the Mordred link (http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix2/modredmystic.htm) from the Darkhold's profile, the Book instantly affected Mordred and started the bargain when he walked in the room with it. Assuming the target doesn't mind giving up their soul, I don't see what the issue is.

The issue, as I see it, is that if it was meant to be sold from the store like that, it wouldn't be a 6 (being able to cast the Crimson Bands instantly, on their own, would warrant a higher value than that, surely) - and the contract wouldn't be a completely different item.

Moreover, the Darkhold has been in the possession of numerous characters over the years. 99% of the time it hasn't done what it did to Modred to any of them. In other words, the consistent showings of the Darkhold mean that doesn't happen.

Perhaps most importantly, Modred is active in the 20th century because it took his body well over a thousand years to get used to the magic power that Chthon pumped into him.

Trying to replicate the deal the way Modred did during a match, while conceivably possible, is a grand way of effectively removing a character from the fight.

If that was the case then there would be no point in stating it can be used by those without Magic by showing 2 links of someone making a deal. It would be far less than a 6 if it gave Non-Magic users magic only if they had to make a deal each battle.

So if given to a character with no innate magic in order to give them magic, they would not be allowed to get said power until a deal is made during a match?

Forgive me if I am coming across as argumentative, but I don't understand how that could be the case when characters who get mechanical/chemical/other magical boosts (via Item) that don't take place instantly nonetheless get their effects, as well as the ability to do things like merge items before a match.

I'd go back to the point I already made - the fact that 99% of the time, the Darkhold doesn't actually give the holder the deal. Consistent showings and all that. That was a one-off, and therefore it's the reason the contract itself is a completely separate item (and, obviously, a more expensive one).

For a non magical person, the Darkhold is essentially an evil genie lamp, because the character has to ask the Other to do the magic for him.

It is potent stuff and even in a League format it is not useless if you can give the non-magical time to do the bargaining, but it is the wrong item for giving a non-magical character magic powers.

If that was what you were looking for, the Dragon Ring or the Hellpact would have been better.

Wasn't quite my plan, but they are changed a bit. I thought it was a Power Boost & Knowledge Boost on it's own, not just a Knowledge Boost considering it's price and the fact that it gave magic to the non-magical.

So would I be wrong to think that it would work when used by someone with Magic as a new Spellbook would be to a D&D Wizard (Pre-Match Study in order to memorize their spells instead of Reading during the Fight) with the option of taking match time to make a Deal? If not then it forces you to study spells during the match and there is no reason at all for it to be a 6.

I ask these questions because I got screwed over by a Book (Treknobabble) and item-use rules long ago and looking for clarification now is better than after losing due to a misunderstanding.

Spellbook treatment is what we have gone with in the past, as far as my memory recalls.

Besides, those with magical potential don't have to bargain with the Other, even when untrained. They can force the book to do the magic they want, although with their own natural power level (as opposed to Modred's near-Strange power level). There is great risk to one's soul, but it can be bruteforced.

Yeah well both the folks I have in mind have hard-to-gauge magic levels, as you'll see when I draft them. Still neither are weak, just hard to set up against folks from Marvel/DC and figure out where they stack up. I was hoping the Darkhold would be able to make that easier.

I was just wondering how it happened in the first place. The name doesn't *really* matter.

Oh well then "it was like that before I got here".

I think that the idea is to stop when it gets back to the top of the list. If I am right (but I am not sure), you don't have to stick around for the rest of today's proceedings.

Well, I want to see what gets picked. Give me more time to figure out replacements. So far all top six picks are intact.

I don't think it would be fair to let it run when most Players are asleep. So Chuthlu will be the last Pick for the night. In the morning we will start up again with Korrdorr. In the morning I will also drop the time down to 1/2 hour.

So what is this I'Noxian Collective?? I googled it and all that came back were episode summaries and reviews for a certain comic, and they apparently more worried about the PLOT and the writing, then what the I'Noxian Collective actually DOES. Although one writer used the term "Omnipotence" for what she had. And apparently it vaporized her body to give her mind control of it??

Oh Cuthulu is second, so that's OK then. :D

I needed to get Magneto because he kinds of rip apart my robot team.

But now there's currently no other team I'm really afraid of. Getting the Hollow is a huge advantage.

If I'd had the Adamantium I would have had a legit shot at claiming Rush was Indestructible.

As it IS only a very narrow band of things can hurt him.

Of course what no one seems to realize is the awesomeness that is the water Crystal. Yet. :D

Well Cyborg Supes is involved, but that depends on where his Tech-control has topped out. Not sure if he's taken over things like Lantern AI's, Mother Boxes, and/or more advanced stuff.

Swarm of nanomachines vast enough to cover a planet, with enough mass to be compared to celestial bodies. (Alternating comparisons with stars and moons.)

It can condense to the point that a building formed out of the nanomachines could make a weakened Supergirl struggle to lift it, and it can create human-sized bodies that fly, have superstrength and durability enough to likewise give some trouble to the aforementioned weakened Supergirl.

It doesn't necessarily require ripping apart the owner's body, that's just what Cyborg Superman did to Supergirl. (Since he intended to use her kryptonian genetic materials to recreate his own organic body.)

A few recent picks blew apart my core set up .. But that's okay.

With hope you'll end up fearing me; and I won't need to rely on IMPBEDLAMTIMESHENANNIGANS! Because one, that's been used before, and two, that's been used before.

He managed to hide (possibly control?) an Alpha Lantern, took control of a section of the Source Wall and managed to hide inside of a Mother Box. Though he is not quite as insane in recent years, his old school feats were serious shit.

Huh... so it's just a Superman-lite generator? Or can it build other things that will screw with everything in a more esoteric fashion?

It's a giant swarm of nanomachines. So, you know, whatever form the person in control wants it to take.

Did he actually control the Mother Box? As for Source Wall I'd love to see that feat. Seems like he might be a bit tougher to handle than I thought, still the Mobius Chair > Mother Box especially when it is infused with Doom's mighty will.

Just in case I have alarm problems again, I'll send my next pick your way. After that one I should be able to wait without worry of having my picks taken without having many alts available. I'm lucky to have gotten everything I hoped for despite the misleading description of the Darkhold.

Since this is way earlier that I originally planned, we won't start doing it time limits until either Darth shows up or until it's at least 11 AM EST - he has two hours. I want to get this done quickly but I also want to be fair to everyone. Time zones and schedules are tricky things.

Also, I haven't had the time to check numbers (outside my own), so I trust everyone is keeping track of their own point numbers.

I actually don't know about that. Will have to look it up, unless someone more experienced in the RL than I knows the answer. But it would be considerate if DD announced who he was going to mind-switch with.
