The annual competition to determine the best overall team in the league will soon be upon us. Any team finishing in first or second place in the Divisional stages of the Open Scramble 2509/10 Competition will automatically qualify for the Championship IV.
The four Divisional Champions (the teams that finished first) will randomly be drawn against a runner up from another Division. From there, the Competition will continue in a knockout format with the loser being eliminated from the Competition. Ultimately, only one team will remain standing and be declared this Seasons winner of the HDWSBBL Championship Cup.
Because there are still three outstanding games to play in the Open Scramble 2509/10 the teams participating are not 100% confirmed. We do know for a fact that the following teams are guaranteed entry:
- Atrocity Exhibition (East)
- Drackwald Deadheads (North)
- Karond Kar Corsairs (North)
- Ragnars Swift Velocity (West)
- Teotigua Predators (South)
- The Loren Rangers (South)
- Valhallen Vixen’s (West)
At present, we are awaiting the results of the Atrocity vs Reavers match to see if the Reavers retain the place in the competition and the two games with WTF in North to determine the North Division winner.
The winning team will receive 70,000gp on top of their normal winnings for the match and the runner up will receive 40,000gp. These bonuses are awarded after any modifications such as spiralling expenses.
The full draw will take place on the 21st of January during the opening ceremony of the Slammer Shield. The first week of the competition is expected to take place on the 28th of January.
