The rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated...

Coaches,

With a second cycle complete, NBP-Pro looks to the future. The clarion call of Tzeentch drives us to crave alteration. With that in mind, I'd like to announce the following changes:

COMMS
We will be moving to a discord server for communications. The PS4 group chat will remain as a backup, but it will not be receiving regular attention.

REGISTRATION
Season 7 Registration will be done via the discord server.

LEAGUE SCORING
We will move to the in game scoring system.

LEAGUE STRUCTURE
Conference division round robins have been dissolved. Season play will utilize four 12 team conferences in the following structure:
Phase I - Wissen format for 4 rounds
AFC/NFC
Phase II - Wissen format for remaining 4 rounds.
Old World- Top 6 from each Phase I conference
Salt Works - Bottom 6 of each Phase I conference

PLAY PERIOD
To accommodate for time zone differences for the conferences, we will move to a 2 week play period, with rounds advancing on every other Sunday 00:00 Eastern Time Zone. If a round is complete within 1 week, it can advance pending league approval.

As always, NBP remains a living entity, so feedback is welcomed and encouraged. Any additional changes will be addressed as needed through the season. I want to thank all past and present coaches for contributing to the league. If all moves quickly, we can start Season 7 on 25 November 2018. Looking forward to seeing you all out on the pitch!
