Get ready Sports Fans, the greatest league the sport of Blood Bowl has ever seen is about to begin! Ready your team, and prepare to dominate the pitch. Blitzmania has arrived!

The Blitzmania league will kick off on February 4th and run until March 12th. During that time, you’ll be able to log the results of your Blood Bowl games with your local League Promoter and view them on the official league page. The up-to-the-minute league table will tally your points along with those of every other Blitzmania team in the world. After the six weeks is up, whoever is at the top of the League will receive a magnificent trophy and all the glory that goes with it.

Event Format

Pairings

Pairing system used: n/a
What are the pairing systems?
Swiss

A Swiss-system tournament is a non-eliminating tournament format that features a set number of rounds of competition, but considerably fewer than that of a round-robin tournament. In a Swiss tournament, each competitor (team or individual) does not necessarily play all other entrants. Competitors meet one-on-one in each round and are paired using a set of rules designed to ensure that each competitor plays opponents with a similar running score, but not the same opponent more than once. The winner is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned in all rounds. All competitors play in each round unless there is an odd number of players.

What is your prize policy?
Door Prizes

We strive to ensure that all participants find our tournaments enjoyable. We believe that this means an egalitarian prize distribution structure. That means that no matter how well or poorly you do at one of our tournaments, you’ll still have an equal chance to walk home with a prize!

At the end of each tournament, participants are all given some draw tickets, which they can put in the corresponding box for a prize they would like to win. Depending on the amount of prize support and the number of participants, we may have 5-10 prizes, ranging in price and variety. We will randomly draw one ticket to win each prize! However, it’s up to you how you want to allocate your tickets – you may have a harder chance winning the prize that everyone else wants. Note that prizes are not eligible for exchange or a cash refund – we suggest you put tickets in the box of something you actually hope to win.

Prize Support

Our philosophy at Kingston Nexus is that we want to run excellent tournaments with great prize support. We don’t have any costs associated with renting a venue, therefore, we are able to turn 100% of the ticket price into prize support. For example, if we run a Warhammer 40K tournament with 20 attendees and each attendee pays $20, that’s $400 of prize support. Actual prizes will be chosen by the tournament organizer from Nexus’ available inventory. For special prize requests, the tournament organizer should be in touch with Kingston Nexus well in advance of the tournament to ensure that they are available for the tournament.

Some tournaments already have prize support built in (eg. X-Wing tournament kits, Magic: The Gathering prereleases). The cost of any such tournament kits or supplies will be deducted from the total prize pool available for door prizes. So for example, if $400 were taken in from entry fees but there is a $50 tournament kit being used, the remaining $350 would be available for door prizes.
