Due to the successes of S1 we will be starting off S2 as early as this weekend. We learned some things along the way and we saw some BIG fights along the way. Much fun was had by many! It's clear some clarification on some points was needed, so some adjustments have been made for S2. Some ground rules and guidelines.. 1. NO LOOTING 2. NO MULTIBOXING - UFL goes by what I call "pokemon" rules - when you use a toon you are locked into that toon until you take it off the field. If you are in stat loss on that toon you are locked into the sidelines (on or off field) for the duration. When that 5 mins stat timer runs up you can bring in any factioner you like. If you are alive and not in stat you can swap out as you see fit. 3. NO STAT KILLING - if you are in stat you rock the deathrobe and sit on the sidelines, on or off field. This does not mean you go scout the enemy base while you can't be attacked. This does not mean you stam block for your buddies who are still fighting. It means get out of the way and wait till your timer is off to reengage. 4. BOTTING is allowed (for S2) due to the absence of a timer system built in. That said any bot toon counts as your ACTIVE toon - if he dies then you are subject to the 5 mins stat. If he's active in your base then you can't have another active toon out there fighting. This is to prevent having eyes in 2 places at once. Does this mean you can kill a bot? Technically yes, but AFK sensibilities apply - if it's AFK try to leave it alone but if you aren't sure about the player's engagement killing the bot is not out of the question. 5. NO HOUSE HOLDING - if you steal a sigil you are expected to cap asap. House hiding is a BIG no no and on a similar token if you steal the sigil you are expected to bring it back to base ASAP. Holding the sigil for 29 minutes off in lala land to try for the 30 minute reset is a bitch move and you will be called out. 6. NO HIDING / STEALTHING WITH THE SIGIL - this is borderline impossible to police so honor system it is. 7. NO EVENT CENTER WITH SIGIL - problem free multiple drop transportation? No. 8. DISARM THIEVES ARE OK - just return the weapon within a reasonable time frame. 9. NO TOXIC BEHAVIOR - Do NOT lose control. It’s easy to lash out or give in when things get tense, but don’t let your adrenaline do the talking. Personal attacks will now start to count as warnings; this includes name calling, personal attacks, and blaming someone's timezone as an excuse for gameplay (it will be left at the discretion of the faction leaders to remove members that start to violate the ufl-code-of-conduct). 10. NO BOATS - we are a league of landlubbers. 11. NO OBSTRUCTIONS - don't clutter up your base with furniture or whatever else in an attempt to slow things down. A precursor... Season 1 was tumultuous at times. Out the gate the Minax faction was dissolved due to lack of leadership. The Shadowlords *almost* dissolved under pressure, but grew together and came back strong. The Council of Mages was nowhere to be seen in the middle of the season, solidifying towards the end. Only the True Brits held fast through almost the entire season, until the very end. A whirlwind of emotions and action dulled people's senses and left many in a vengeful, bloodthirsty state. Troubling times were seen ahead... I present to you for season 2... BATTLE FOR THE DARK SIDE Season 2 will be between TWO factions - Minax vs Shadow Lords. The forces of chaos are swirling and battle must ensue to forge a path forward. Only the heat of combat can stoke the flames hot enough to light the way. Are you up for the challenge? Similar to Season 1 we'll be doing draft style team selection. Anyone interested in leading a faction please reach out to me @Delstrudo on discord. Anyone interested in joining Season 2 of the UFL sign up here! We are looking to start S2 as early as this weekend, so be prepared!
