Biter Battles Championships is back for Season 2. Hype !
Qualifier to determine your league will happen in september, registration is already opened.
New rules have been revealed but need a consensus to be found before any official match. That is taking longer than expected but we prefer to be 100% secure, sorry for the delay.
New rules are (in short) : bigwigs (bosses), perks (bonuses), free researches, harder armageddon...
New scenario will be published when ready, also training servers will be opened, note that rules, changelog, etc. are not up-to-date
Season 1 ended up with a 3-way tie for the first place, 4th team was only 2 points behind. Those 4 teams are qualified for behemoth league. All other teams will fight during a qualifier to determine which league they will be enrolled in.
Qualifier will be played on "Biter" and "Behemoth" difficulties, one match per week, swiss system (more info to come, but in resume you will fight against same level teams, no need to be pro, open to everybody).
About Season Two
Number of leagues and teams per league will depend on number of teams registered, but all teams will be qualified for season 2. Every team that did not play the qualifier will be placed in the lower league.
Each team will have to play one match per week.

Biter Battles Championships - Two leagues(subject to change for S2)
Teams are split in two leagues according to organisation's choices helped by community advice.
The Behemoth league is the Elite league where known top teams and players fight on Hard difficulty and without BP library.
The Biter league is the Regular league where anyone else fights on Normal difficulty and with BluePrint library.
(You won't have to fight against top teams if you are placed in the Biter league)
Matches are 3(+1) vs 3(+1), the (+1) meaning the manager (coach/spy/substitute).
The goal for all teams is to play one match per week, preferably Friday | Saturday | Sunday.
Double round robin : all teams in one division will fight twice against each other team of that division, once “at home”, once “away | visitor”.
Team “at home” chooses its side (North | South) and can reroll the map up to twice (but no roll back !).
Both teams are given the same starter pack chosen among 4 by the team “at home”. Contents of the starter packs : packs.png
Once you have registered on the website, create a team, so you are the captain. All captains will be granted the admin role on training public servers:
You can restart scenario at any time with /force-map-reset (do not use it in official matches)
Ask everLord#4340 or neuro#8366 for the admin role and for the password if you're waiting for them.
Once done, you can invite anyone you want to these servers and start your training or your scrims. Check the procedure via the ? button in the team manager.
