We would like to announce our biggest competition set for the beginning of 2018.
The BBLANZ ELITE competitions have always run with large groups of individual races matched against each other. It is called “ELITE” as we match everyone up to find out which is the superior race above all and the best coachs. As of next year we will be running the first ELITE comp that will include all 24 races and be open to the public (not just exclusive to BBLANZ).
Registration will open on the 11th January 2018 and close 11th February 2018.
Things to consider:
The competition itself will be a 24 team round robin that will span roughly over 23 weeks followed by a 16 team play-off.
One race per player.
All new teams and veteran teams (experienced teams existing in the BBLANZ league) will be welcome.
Any race slot that isn’t filled will be taken up by an AI and will be treated as a “bye” week (AI wont compete).
Even though we will allow players outside of BBLANZ to compete, everyone must accommodate coaches from the Oceanic time zones (roughly UTC +11).
The prize pool will be roughly $170 AUD
And yes there is a prize pool! For awhile now some of our members have donated via Patreon in order to contribute to our competition prizes and add to the fun of the game. For this competition we will double what has been raised by members and add it to the BBLANZ ELITE 2018 prize pool. If you're interest in helping out, then please check out our Patreon page, link found at the bottom of this post.
And if you would like to get in touch with BBLANZ and it's members, or are interested in becoming a member yourself, please check the link bellow:
Please feel free to comment with any questions or queries about the competition bellow.
For BBLANZ members, this is a great opportunity to draw new members in and have a whole load of fun! By the time registration is open we will all be fully recharged from the holidays and ready for some violence on the pitch!
For the former LABBL members, as a lot of you have been a big part of the BBLANZ family, part of the reason this comp is being created is to commemorate the long running seasons of the LABBL era. If any of you would like to propose a name to honour your former commissioners or the league itself, we will definitely consider it.
