We decided to organize a tournament pitting the best Blood Bowl coaches since the creation of the Champion Ladder (August 2016) - this epic one-time tournament will grant 2 tickets to the World Cup 2018 Play-Offs!

The 8 coaches invited to the World Cup Invitational Cup are:

  • The two best coaches from the Champion Ladder PS4 from Seasons 1 to 14.

HYPE!

Could you tell us a bit about the process used to determine which leagues would get (how many) tickets?

Netheos will post next week the details of the process to assign tickets (discussion with him this afternoon on the LFBB Discord server).

I presume 1 ticket for every 30 coaches.

Could you tell us a bit about the process used to determine which leagues would get (how many) tickets?

More info about the ticket repartition:

  • X the sum of all coaches registered in the community leagues for the World Cup Thursday 29th March (based on the info I received from the admins)
  • 50 tickets available for community leagues in total
  • Y the coaches registered in a specific league Thursday 29th March (based on the info I received from the admins)

Number of ticket for a league = (50/X)*Y, rounded at the closest whole number.

Here X=1435, meaning 50/1435=28.7

Meaning 1 ticket every 29-ish coaches. Meaning the following rule:

  • 1 ticket from 15 to 43 coaches
  • 2 tickets from 44 to 71 coaches
  • 3 tickets from 72. That's the maximum amount of tickets for a league.
  • 1 ticket for the biggest community league of the World Cup.

Thanks for the information!

Hi, may I ask something ? :

@netheos said in Blood Bowl 2 World Cup 2018 Announcement:

add: X single skills and X doubles skill (final Max starting TV : XXXX)

Is the numbers of skills mandatory ?
For example can a simple skill be taken instead of a double ?
If yes, is the 10k difference still disposable in the "max starting TV" ?)

And also, just to be sure how to translate:

@netheos said in Blood Bowl 2 World Cup 2018 Announcement:

"maximum 2 skills per player"

It allows several players to have max 2 skills, right ?

@ungern

  • Double skills aren't mandatory. You can take a simple one instead of the double.
  • Yes, several players can get 2 skills.
