    My league is going to totally reset when we can finally get together to play under the new edition. Previously, we'd let teams carry over from season to season with the redrafting rules, or start new teams if they wanted to. It turns out to be a lot of fun having a few "big fish" teams that way to add drama, plus it allows people to goof around with silly inducements. We even saw Morg N' Thorg used once or twice. Notably, inducements do seem to work, because the seasoned teams didn't crowd out the playoffs like you may think they would.

    Long story short, if you're staying within the same edition of the game, I don't think you should worry about making every coach start from scratch every season. If you're moving to the new edition, things get weird and hairy.

    Totally this. Our league also had always two or three divisions and at the start of the season the divisions were sorted by team value to give the new teams some time to catch up and then the divisions get reset after half the season or so and sorted by win ratio so the more successful teams play against each other. That of course changes the results maybe a bit but makes for very close last few days in the season.

    I need some advice on team resets after a 12 game + playoffs season. I think we only have one team that strongly wants to carry over (the undefeated team). I considered putting in a salary cap and offering new teams 1200 TV or so to buy up, but the more I think about it the more I think it'd be better to just do a full reset, or let everyone start a new team at 1200 TV or something.

    What rules version do you play with? 2016? Are you planning to change to 2020? If so then a total reset is the only thing that really works I think.

    Personally I wouldn't like to discourage carrying teams over. It's a big part of the fun in a league I think.

    Why does no one else want to carry over? Do they want to try different teams?

    The number one player is the only player who kept his star player positionals all season essentially. He went entirely undefeated and at least three players are quitting the league after feeling what it's like to start most games at a 500TV disadvantage. I think I will take another crack at revising some redraft rules that people enjoy.

    I guess I also wouldn't mind carrying my team over, but it's for the same reason. Players who didn't end the season in suffering might want to carry over, but I want to soften the blow for the other teams.

    Edit: we don't have enough players to add divisions. We went from 12 to about 6 after this season.

    Any chance someone could point me to an online summary of the new version of the redraft rules?

    For 2020, basically, at the start of a new season you get the standard Million, plus your Treasury from last season, plus, for each W/L/D game last season you get 40/20/30k on top as your starting budget for next season.
    From that Re-draft Budget you then hire new players and staff, basically as though starting again from scratch. You can re-hire players from last season for their Current Value + 20k. Re-hired players heal Niggling Injuries on a 4+ (3+ W/apo). Players that were Temporarily Retired come back in the same way but also get to heal permanent stat loss to a NI on a 4+/3+ in the same way.
    Re-hired players come across with their complete stats including any injuries that didn’t heal and any unspent SPP.
    You keep the team name and fans, I think.

    Note that you don’t actually have to re-hire anyone; you can just buy a regular starter team and blow out the rest on staff and re-rolls. Because having 8 re-rolls is actually worthwhile now.

    8rr worth of tv sounds like suicide to me . That’s a lot of tv that doesn’t actually contribute most of the time and will likely give opponents a lot of chainsaw/wizards/bribes and loners with dirty players. Especially with how important fouling looks to be now.

    Sorry I made you repeat yourself on this one. Thank you.

    I really don't like the weighting on those redraft rules since you get SO MUCH more for wins.

    This past Sunday I coached my 8 year old through his first half of a Blood Bowl game. We had gone over some of the rules beforehand but obviously he was learning as he went. It's hard to give someone advice when you're playing the other team. But it gave him a good taste of the game and he wants to play more.
