Rumbleslam Crackdown League

Ladies and Gentlemen!  Please direct your attention to the center ring, as we are about to begin our first match of the night!

The Rumbleslam Crackdown League is an ongoing league for Rumbleslam, the game of fantasy wrestling!  The league can be joined at any point, and is punctuated by the occasional big ‘Rumblemania’ event!

HOW IT WORKS:

Participants register for the league, including a team name for their crew, registration in the league is FREE.  Participants can play exhibition matches any time they would like, with anyone else in the league, earning them a number of Star Points.  Once a participant has earned enough Star Points they can register a ‘Challenge’ for one of the title belts, forcing the current Champion to fight them for the title!  Occasionally we will host a ‘Rumblemania’ event, which will be a big one day event where all the belts will be up for grabs!

Playing Exhibition Matches:  Participants may play any number of exhibition matches (max 2 per day) against anyone else they wish.  Players agree on which Format they will play (described below).  Players get 1 Star Point for losing the match, 2 for a Draw, and 3 for a Victory.  Players also have the chance to get a bonus Star Point each match, based on which match format they play.

Challenging for the Title:  Each Format has a Champion, which is the participant that currently holds the title belt.  These Champions can be challenged.  To do so any participant may spend a number of points to register an official Challenge against the current Champion.  These challenges must be met.  If the challenger wins, we have a new Champion!  If the Champion defends their belt, they earn half the number of points the challenger used – either way the challenger loses the points used to issue the challenge.

Scheduling and Playing Games: It is recommended for each participant to join the BK Rumbleslam Facebook Group (HERE) as much of the league will be tracked and recorded there, and it will facilitate scheduling exhibition and title matches.

RUMBLEMANIA:

Rumblemania is the premier event in the Rumbleslam Crackdown League.  It is a special one day event, in which all the titles are put on the line!  Each Rumblemania will be a little different, but they will typically involve three rounds of play: an Exhibition round where everyone plays matches for bonus Star Points, a Royal Rumbleslam round where multiple players fight together in one match.  The results of the Royal Rumbleslam determines who gets to challenge for the various belts.  Finally there is a Title round, where many of the current titles, including the World Championship of the World, will be fought for!  Pay attention to the calendar for the next Rumblemania event!

MTG: Team League (Ixalan)

For this league season we will be trying something a little bit different for our League Play: a Team League!

When: Mondays (4 of them: Oct 2 – Oct 23), 6:30pm

Entry Fee: $35.00 or 9 Hero’s Rewards / Player

Teams: Players are divided in teams of 4.  You can register your foursome, or you can register and we will do our best to place you with other players to form a team – first come, first serve.

Players Get: A total of six booster packs, 1 Hero’s Reward (2 if they are a Stronghold Member!), an Ixalan Deck Box to hold their decks, and an ‘Unclaimed Territory’ Promo card.  In addition players have a chance to win prizes (2 Packs/Person in to the prize pool).

Event Format:

Team Sealed: Teams start by opening 12 booster packs together as a group, and form four decks from the cards opened. Teams open a further 4 packs in each of the following three weeks, adding to the team card pool, and modifying the decks.  The cards are owned by the team, and it is up to the team to decide how to split them.  If the team can’t agree on how to split, they will re-draft among themselves at the end of the league.

Weekly Gameplay: Each of the four weeks will feature a different type of gameplay.  Each week players will play three rounds, and will score points in each game based on the number of players in that game (for example if we are playing Two-Headed Giant one week each match win would be 4 points since there are four players in each match).

Week 1 (Oct 2) – Single Player Matches: Players play against members of rival teams 1 on 1 (matches are each worth 2 points)
Week 2 (Oct 9) – Two-Headed Giant: Players play as pairs against rival teams in the 2HG style (matches are each worth 4 points)
Week 3 (Oct 16) – Emperor + Solo: Players play in teams of three in ‘Emperor’ format, with the fourth players on each team playing one another in a 1 on 1 match (Emperor Match is worth 6 points, Solo Match is worth 2)
Week 4 (Oct 23) – Multi-Player: Players play in one of four multiplayer games, each team sends one player to each game – the last player standing wins it (Multi-player matches are worth 1 point/player in them – depends on number of teams overall)

This format means that each week there is the same number of points up for grabs.

Prizes: At the end of the four-week league the team with the most overall points will be the winner!  The winning team will win a Booster Box of Ixalan.  Additional prizes will be provided based on overall attendance (2 Packs/Person in total with the first 36 going to the top team).

Shadow War Armageddon League

 

Start: Tuesday May 16th

Duration: 6 Weeks + Playoff

Registration fee: $10.00 (free if bought the Shadow War Rulebook or Boxes Set from us)

Register by: Sunday, May 14th

Black Knight Games will be hosting a league for Shadow War: Armageddon starting Tuesday May 16 using the rules found in the Shadow War book. The league will run for six weeks, followed by a playoff for the top eight players. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 players, as well as awards for the best painted kill team, and the best sport.

Each participant will start the league with a new kill team of up to 1000 points made from any of the lists printed in the rulebook, also available at https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/04/22/shadow-war-armageddon-pre-order-and-downloadsgw-homepage-post-4/

Players will be assigned a weekly game against a specific opponent, and these weekly games will have a scenario assigned by the organizer. The role of Attacker/Defender will be assigned in relevant scenarios. Players will have one week to organize and play these games with their opponent. Games may be played any time during the week, a Facebook group will be created where players are encouraged to organize their games. In the event that a time cannot be arranged despite sufficient effort from both players, those players will be allowed to play a game against another participant in the league in place of the assigned game. In addition to assigned games, each player may play up to one additional game per week against an opponent of their choosing. These extra games will follow all of the normal rules and participating kill teams will suffer casualties and gain experience as usual.

After the 6 weeks of assigned games are completed, the 8 players with the highest Promethium Cache on their roster will advance to a bracketed playoff (1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7 etc.) In the event of a tie, head to head results will be the first tie breaker, followed by total games played, followed by number of rostered team members, finally decided by a coin flip.

Best Sport and presentation awards will be voted for in poles on the Facebook page and awarded at the end of the league.
