West Coast League Announcement.
After the recent allegations of blatant cheating and other undisclosed corruption being made against the Savage Sloths, the League Commission was compelled to launch an immediate investigation. After the revelation of damning evidence against the Sloths, the League Commission has been forced to expel the Savage Sloths from the West Coast League.

In an effort to minimise the disruption to the league schedule, a local team from the minors has been promoted into the vacant spot. The League Commission would like to welcome Triumvirate to the league and may Nuffle have mercy on their dark and corrupted souls.
---
Fake news out of the way, Ratt is stepping away from the League for personal reasons and the Commissioners will be running a ringer Chaos team to ensure minimal disruption to the league.

Many thanks to Ratt for all his efforts in making WAFFL and WCL what it is today.

WCL Season 2
WCL Season 2 is set for kick off on July 9th.

A couple of changes from Season 1 to Season 2:

8 rounds, with each round lasting two weeks.

All special play play cards are in effect.

At this stage, sponsorships, stadiums, special referees and rostered star players are not on the menu.

Depending on numbers there will be Quarter Finals, but as a minimum there will be Semi Finals.

The Draw will be recorded and presented at WAFFL Media. Bearing in mind the recording and editing of the video, entries will close at 12 noon Wednesday 5th of July. The draw will be uploaded on the evening of the 7th of July.

We request that all coaches do not redraft their teams on the site at this stage until we resolve issues with the process.

Also, please let the Commissioners know if you have attempted to redraft a team and run into problems.

Deathzone Season 2
Deathzone Season 2 came out today, and I managed to get my hands on a copy - for Commissioner Purposes only.

I have now added the three new players to the database, 2 new Goblins, and the Chaos Renegades get the addition of an Orc. I think all three will add some fun to the league.

There is also a plethora of new rules, some optional, which I will be going through soon. I also took the opportunity to fill out my Special Play decks, and think that they will add some really fun things to our games.

I am also working on something behind the scenes - a bit of a surprise, that I will hopefully have ready to go by this time next week. Discussions need to be had, and then I will post in all the *ahem* glory that it is...

Until then, Good luck with your Finals!

B*stard 7's Rules Migrate
For those who are interested in playing B*stard 7's, either the league, or the Caso Barato event, the rules have now migrated here to the WAFFL Website. As soon as I have the details from CB2, I will add all 8 Star Players available to the B*stard 7's Rules page, and update it after every CB.

Talking of CB, CB-III has been announced as July 16th. This will be a standard version of B*stard 7's, so if you are interested, check it out.

Do you agree with the old soak's power rankings? Where do you think he has gone wrong?

Bastard Sevens S2 Draw
I'm having issues putting the matches into the system for some reason, I will attempt to figure it out over the weekend. But in the meantime, I was kind enough to put the draw on crit.boards.net for you to all have a look. I do have a ringer team in the system at the moment - so if you know someone who want to play, I'll swap them in for the Chaos No Stars.

But on to the draw, here's the link:

B@stard Sevens: Season 2
Just a reminder that Season 2 kicks off on the 12th, just four days from now. I will be accepting entries until 6pm on the 11th of January.

Remembering that it is only one game per month, with a six game season (this includes finals). All teams will get six games even if they do not make the finals.

I will add a ringer team if required.

The draw will be conducted at approx 8pm on the 11th of January, and entered ASAP, allowing kick off on time on the 12th.

WCL LIVE!!!
The draw has now been done, and entered into the system for Season 1 of the WCL.

We've split the teams into four divisions, with the leader of each division qualifying for the finals.

For the first season, I have named the Divisins after players leading certain aspects of the Chaos Cup, but from season 2 and onwards, divisions will be named after players from the Previous WCL season.

WCL Draw on Facebook Live 4/1
Two new things for me: I have never done Facebook Live, and I have never broadcast the draw for a League. So what a time to combine them. I will be conducting the draw on 4/1 around 7:30pm via Facebook Live.

I'm not expecting a massive audience, however, I figured this is about as transparent as a draw can get. I'm not sure how many more will be done live, but you gotta try something right?

Join us on 4/1 (or don't) around 7:30. Please note that start time may vary slightly

BB2016 Update
This morning I have gone through the players types and adjusted where I can. There are still a few players that are out - Norse Runner is still a Norse Runner instead of a Norse Catcher (Can't change that one it seems), whilst others like the Chaos Renegade team are listed as * Renegade instead of Renegade * Lineman and the such.

Another example is the Minotaur. As it is on both the Chaos Dwarf and Chaos Renegade teams, a change to the Enslaved Minotaur changes both. I could create a new player, but as there is currently six Chaos Renegade teams, I would then have to add skill ups to each team. Again, I don't get paid enough to do that.

So at this stage we are about as BB2016 as we are going to get without a complete reset.

WAFFL season announcements
It has been decided by the Commissioner group that due to all leagues operating in the Perth region only being a maximum of 2 seasons old, that the re-draft system will be used between every season now before the new season starts. For all in-progress leagues, the "expensive mistake" mechanic will not be adopted until the next season starts. Therefore it is recommended that if you want to keep your team resembling something like what you have at the moment, build up your treasury and score those TD's and cause that Cas so you have as much money available to you as possible for the re-draft. The 2 in-progress leagues are the WAFFL Open in season 2 and the Chaos Cup in season 1.

Also be aware that with the WAFFL Open that the 'Downtime' rule will come into effect for those players that have competed in both seasons and may feel it is time to hang up the boots.

CRP to BB2016 Update
As a word of warning, I am about to undertake the manual upgrades to update the rosters from CRP to BB2016. This is a process that I plan on spreading out over the next few days, pending the rate at which I can complete it. If anyone experiences any difficulties, please let me know.

W.C.L. S: 1 & Blood Bowl 2016
What a big week for Blood Bowl in Perth. In less than 12 hours, Blood Bowl will again be available to buy in a GW store, with what has been dubbed 'Blood Bowl 2016 edition'. It has some interesting between season rules that we may or may not apply to some of the league's here.

And talking of Leagues, the West Coast League is due to begin Season 1 in early January. This gives us all a little over a month to get used to any changes in the rules, and then fire up the league.

Welcoming new, existing and old players of all skill levels, just get in touch with one of the commissioners!

B@stard 7's Season 2
B@stard 7's Season 2 is due to kick off on January 12, the season will be open for entry soon. However, there will be a few new rules, which will be added to the B@stard 7's rules soon. But I just wanted to post them up here, as we will be collecting information for one of the new rules at Caso Barato on November 20th.

First of all, with the new release of the Blood Bowl box, there will be some rules changes, in particular, some rules for between seasons. From what I have heard, these appeal to my commissioner side, and most will be included in the B@stard 7's rules, but will be reviewed after I have gotten the new rules.

The most exciting thing we will be doing is adding some Star Players to the B@stard 7's roster. However, these will not be the Star Players from the book - they will be Star Players added from Caso Barato events. Players will be required to fill out a match report sheet that will include everything needed for the event. After the event, I will go through the match report sheets and find the three best performing players from the event, and then getting in touch with the coaches who played them.

As a reward, they will also draw one further skill card, from the bonus deck, specifically for that player. I will then confirm the players and add them to a specially designed B*stard 7's site that will include Star Players available for hire (including a picture of the original model if possible).

These players will only be available to B@stard 7's teams, and will be added every time we hold a Caso Barato.

WAFFL FINALS!!!!
This time next week, we will have our inaugural WAFFL Open Champion. The day long finals campaign has taken a toll on people's availability, but I can finally report the finalists competing for the Championship next Sunday.

3. The Sengoku Shoguns
4. Purple Haze

Monday is it!
Just a quick reminder that Monday is the last day to play games for the WAFFL Open - from there we need time to organise the finals, as trying to get 8 people in one place on one day can be a bit of a challenge.

Any game in the system not approved by at least one coach by 6pm on Monday will be deleted.

You have been warned.

WAFFL Open Finals Closing In
Good Afternoon WAFFL Coaches!

This is just a quick shout out to remind you all that as at 6pm 25th of April, no more matches will be allowed to be played for the WAFFL Open as we begin preperations for the finals day on May 22nd to be held in Northern Gamers in Noranda.

Finals Day will be three games long (if you do that well), consisting of quarter finals, semi finals and the grand final.

I have begun to compile the list, and we will have a few countbacks, which is why we need that extra time. It also allows people time to plan, hopefully for some of the Albany Boys to come up to Perth (looks like we'll be needing at least one, anyway!).

So get your last games in, and give me enough time to compile the list of who made the finals, then get in touch with the coaches.

On that note, I will be using the email you have registered here - so keep an eye out for an email from ratt.waffl@outlook.com if you think you made the finals - it'll be coming soon after the 25th!

Ill health prevents structured play
Just want to let everyone know that due to some ill health I have withdrawn from the Structured Play AOL and Boreal Plate Leagues. I have adjusted the draws to the best I can, given the time frame. I wish everyone the best of luck as they continue with these leagues.

Kind Regards.

WAFFL Open Finals - 22nd May
First of all, I would like to say a big thankyou for everyone who got involved in the WAFFL Open for the first season. It has been fun to watch the teams progress, and great to see people organise a couple of games on the same day. I hope more people get involved in Season 2, or the remains of Season 1, as there is still time left.

I am now in a position to announce the time and location for the WAFFL Open Finals for Season One. The cut off for minor rounds will be Monday the 25th of April (ANZAC Day). Any game in the system that has not been played by this date will be deleted, so there is still quite a bit of time left.

From here, we will work out the finalists, who will be invited to play in the finals on Sunday the 22nd of May. The location is Northern Gamers, situated in the Main Hall of Robert Thompson Reserve, Weatherill Way, Noranda. Entry fees will apply, so make sure you bring your $2. As the finalists confirm their attendance, we will update the post.

There will be quarter finals, semi finals and then the grand final and third place playoff. This means you will have the potential to play three games on the one day (so it might be advantageous to bring a couple of copies of your team roster).

I will be speaking to the person responsible for opening Northern Gamers, and trying to extend the hours to that there will be time enough for the games. But there are drinks available, as well as food options across the road, which include two supermarkets and various take away options.

Season 2 will officially launch on the 1st of June, so there will be a small gap between seasons, and we are currently looking at options for divisions based on team value, although this may be more of a season 3 offering, we donít know just yet. Also, Season 2 finals are scheduled to be held in Albany in 2017 Ė so a road trip worth looking forward to. There will be more information coming, please be sure to check back.

Kind Regards,
Ratt

WAFFL Open & B*stard 7's
Well, the WAFFL Open has officially opened. So, who will be the first to play? Coaches now have the ability to create their own games (but they must be involved in the game to do so), but still need a Commissioner to Approve the match.

And the first season of WAFFL's B*stard 7's is set for action from the 12th of July. With only a few teams registered, and an easy one game per month schedule, this should be brutal. There's still time to sign up, with Ratt accepting registrations until the 7th.

WAFFL Opens for Sign Ups
The WAFFL officially opened for Sign Ups on the weekend, with ten coaches signing up, taking the Coach count to thirteen. With the WAFFL Open set to begin wi the start of July, and B*stard 7s: S1 not long after, there is going to be plenty of Blood Bowl action coming back to Perth.

Hope to see you on the pitch soon.
