Changes to NAF Blood Bowl Tournament Rules


#1

This is probably worth a read for any competitive Blood Bowl players / tournament organisers:

In short, it looks like NAF will annually review all GW releases and see which ones they want to include in the NAF rules. This will be updated every November and be enforced every following January.

Games Workshop releases in between Novembers will be considered optional for the various tourney organisers.

This means that NAF will invariably “lag behind” GDub - something to be aware of. e.g. if GDub release something December 2018, it will only be enforced by NAF Jan 2020(!) at the earliest.

Overall it is probably a good thing that NAF are doing this. It should lower the level of confusion at tournaments.

Block ‘n’ Roll!

Cheers. I like the idea of having a standard NAF event for a year. But, while there are releases every 3 months or so it will still be a little odd as they will still approve tournaments that TOs want to run. Small steps.

I’ve always thought there should be a difference between competitive events (i.e. use one set of rules for 12 months) and fun events (i.e. those that have special rules, higher TV etc). I would play in either type, but would prefer the fun style. Others are much more about ranking and competition. I play for different reasons.
