    Default Rumbler's League Fall 2015 and Beyond - Discussion Thread

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


    Registration and Preparation

    1. The Number of Team Slots depends on the Number of Registered Players. A minimum number of 8 Teams is needed before the League can start.
    2. Depending on the Number of Players, the League Tournament might run anywhere from 7 to 16 weeks
    3. Sign up here on this Discussion Thread if You wish to Join. I will list those registered in the Post below.
    4. Once registered, if you cannot commit to participating during the scheduled time, you have until a week before the Draft to back out and give your slot to someone else.
    5. Please be considerate and let me know if you are going to be too busy to participate one week or intend to drop out for any reason. Please leave notice if you have other problems that might get in the way of your participation. Real Life Happens, but a quick note ahead of time if at all possible makes it easier on everyone.
    6. If you have never participated in a League Tournament before, I asked that you team up with an experienced player for your first League Season. If you can not find someone to team up with but still wish to participate, let me know and I will consider it.
    7. I, as GM, reserve the Right To question and possibly remove from play anyone whom I find out is not willing to follow the rules.
    8. Be respectful of your fellow players and your GM. This is a Debate Set up, but hostilities that go against CBR Rules will not be permitted.
