    RPS Cripple Cup interest gathering

    I'm posting this to gather interest in a cripple cup for RPS.

    Gist is you get no apoth, no rerolls, and can not purchase players after the start - last original man standing wins.

    Full ruleset would be determined, but I believe there are a few leagues like this out there already.

    Post here if you're interested; I don't know how many people would be required before we could launch one.

    Sounds very fun, but wouldn't that mean bashy teams with high AV would be in a huge advantage?

    Well, I would disqualify the AV9 teams if the decision were up to me.

    That said, right now I'd like to see a show of hands interested in doing the concept

    I'll join as long as it gets a new name. Sorry to shoehorn political correctness into blood bowl but I've seen the word cripple be used as a vile insult by so many fucking horrible bastards that the word is irrecoverable on my brain.

    Wouldn't regen be more of a problem than AV9?

    How about, 'Injury Invitational'?

    Personally, I disagree with the no-bash sentiment. Outlawing Dwarves, however, is something I can certainly get behind. Teams like chaos, lizardmen and ostensibly nurgle ( though nurgle warriors may just refuse to die ) are mostly av8. Getting claw and mighty blow before players drop dead could prove easier said than done.

    I'll be in as there is at least 2 week match days.

    AV9 would be favoured but an early death would be crippling no?

    Keeping the focus on injuries over death is fair, Maimbowl? I dunno, Casualty Cup?

    I'm not set on the name at all, and I think "Injury Invitational" sounds like a winner.

    I'm not set for outlawing bash, just the dwarves, to be honest. I can see Lizards and Nurgles being strong contenders for the boot due to OP, but I would probably leave them in.

    I don't think Khemri would be an issue with their AV9 as no reroll blockless TG's are more of a liability and decay will catch up to them very quickly (source: have khemri team).

    Again, I don't have any rules in mind, but I'd toy with a race limit of 1 and perhaps removing the winning race from the pool if there were to be a second invitational.

    So, is my list correct (tentatively):

    Optimus
    Helio

    I might be interested in this, it'd give me more practice with the game.

    I can't really increase my league obligations at the moment, but I would love to give this a go. Once I get a decent computer working.

    Well sure, not if you're playing tabletop, but I don't think the Cyanide client will run on a tablet.

    from what I've seen of another cripple cup ruleset, teams were severely restricted, with both racial and teamsize and team-makeup restrictions

    for example, nurgle was allowed, but was restricted to 12 players and were not allowed to keep bonus rotters
    Delves were allowed at a 13 player roster
    Chaos dwarves were allowed with no Chaos Dwarf Blockers (just hobs, Bulls, and mino) with a 14 or 15 man roster
    Stuff like that.

    Orcs weren't allowed, Dwarves weren't allowed....I can look up the full(extensive) rules somewhere over on the BBtactics site in a former post.

    I'd be interested, depending on rules and whether or not u get sucked into too many other leagues.

    Generally I'd agree with you but I just find this word, specifically without a D at the end breaks my brains.

    Yes, that'd be great
