    I'm in.

    Just an adminny type observation: I ran something similar back before LE with just gobbos. The drop-out rate was even higher than normal so I'd recommend not having too long a season, and 8 weeks or so is quite long. That way peoples interest will (hopefully) be sustained until the end.

    Thanks for the advice!

    My reasons for wanting a long season are because Stunty teams develop slowly, yet you're right I have to consider potential dropouts. And the injury rate will probably be rather high. Hmm.

    I'll leave it "8 weeks" for now but as a maximum, and we can look at it again once the application numbers are in.

    I'm in. Nobody's taken an Ogre team yet? This must be remedied!

    Goblinpowaaaaaaaah, the Shortstuff Stumblers are so in that it hurts like a chainsaw through the heart.

    I just realized that the Bombardier is actually a really interesting unit in an all-stunty-league. This will be fun!

    Also, I like the inclusion of potions.

    Hi Screwie. I admire what you're trying to do here. Personally I am not a big fan of all stunty leagues - but I am a big fan of RPS cups! How about I step in with a team if you end up with an odd number, and getting one more in would make it easier to adminstrate, but otherwise I sit this one out?

    Thanks PW, I'll be sure to take you up on that offer if we need filler.

    oh also I am assuming less than 1000 TV teams are acceptable so long as they are new?

    You can certainly go that route.

    I'll have to remember to lower the min TV when I create the league. What is a good minimum TV?

    Count me in too, currently thinking goblins, but if the teams remain too skewed I'll probably swap to ogres.

    my very limited understanding of hacking halflings is to start them at TV600 so perhaps that?

    Crikey. I knew they liked to start behind the curve but that's a halfling chef and a wizard and then some!

    Okay, 600 it is. That should be enough even if anyone is crazy enough to make an all-snotling team. (Note to self: Gotta try this.)

    Does anyone have a good site setting out a list of the extended inducements in the Cyanide game? I'm sure someone on the internets has done some analysis of them as well...

    I will add a page to the spreadsheet explaining the extended inducements.

    EDIT:

    In principle, I don't object to lowering it further. However I think realistically there's a limit to how low you can go and still be considered a team. Even a snotling team would want substitutes and TRRs, for example.

    So maybe lower than 600K, but probably higher than 220K.

    I'm not sure what the 220K snotling masterplan might be, but now I'm curious. :)

    Seeing as its a stunty tournament, would Lizardmen count if its all Skinks and maybe a Krox? I have never played as non Lizardmen except a few half completed AI games, feels like a shame to ruin that now.
