    Each city/guild that wishes to participate in a game must assemble a team. Each team consists of three players, but can have any number of members, and must have unique colors. One member from each team will be designated as the captain and coach of the team. The game is played without goalies, and team members are responsible for stopping goals.

    <center>About the Game</center>
    The game is played on a grassy field. A bright yellow bagball, filled with 15000+ stones worth of ore, more than any character can carry or trade, is used as the bagball. The object of the game is to drag the
    bagball into the opposing team's goal to score a point!

    <center>Playing Bagball</center>
    Each team takes their starting positions on their sides of the field. The referee will count down from "three" and then drop the bagball on the sand tile in the center of the field. At this point, both teams
    will come rushing toward the center, will fight to grab the ball and drag it along the field.

    Some of the key rules are:
    -The bagball must be dragged along the ground to other team members!
    -To score a goal, you must FIRST drop the bagball on the sandstone goalline, THEN immediately in the opposing team's goal. (European bagball rules for more challenging games.)
    -The first team to 10 points wins the game!

    To keep the game fair and fun, some penalties may be awarded by the referee. When the referee declares a penalty the game will stop and both teams will move to their starting positions for a new face off

    Some of the penalties include:
    -Standing idly on the opposing team's sandstone goal line, or green
    grassy goal area
    -Holding onto the bagball for too long (3 seconds or so)
    -Picking up the bagball and running
    -Trading the bagball
    -Removing the ore from the bagball
    -Intentionally blocking the bagball with spammed-text, items, etc
    -Using potions or spells other than night sight
    -Hiding or stealthing
    -Riding a horse (ethereal included)
    -Adding additional bagballs, or other items to the field
    -Using spells to raise Stamina

    <center>1st. Round (HOT) chooses Cove Rush!</center> </center>



    This Guild is Known for its PVP AND PVM stance inside Ultima Online. Can they Overcome ABL? Could they go for the Champ?

    This is a personal attempt to get Other guilds TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE. Atlantic Events take time and money to be put togather!. PLEASE SUPPORT ATLANTIC

    We would just pull together 3 guildmembers who want to participate when the event occurs, there would be really not set team. If there is going to be one this weekend it would probably not be a good idea because of the UO event.

    We would like to put forth a team as well, but face the same issue JC has. Getting people to fully commit to an uncertain timetable for several weeks in a row is difficult at best. If we can do flexible teams as JC suggested, then you would already have us signed up!

    Safe Journeys!

  14. What time a day are we looking at? And when does this start? If I can I'd love to play I think there should be three of me by then...
  15. Where looking to start the 2nd week of april. After spring break etc. also give some time for teams to practice!.

    We are looking now at Sunday's, Have 2 games on sunday One at 3pm and one at 6pm East coast time.
  16. Also if your having a hard time to commit to playing PLEASE PLEASE pm me about being an offical reffery. I NEED some players to assist in the process.

    Thanks guys!

    I mentioned this to EMs Nestor and Eris, Static. They seemed intrigued. EM Eris even mentioned the possability of inter-shard contests.

    If you're willing to re-organize, you should definitely contact our EMs. They could make it happen!
  19. For everyone who doesnt know what this is:

    Last year i started this, created the team logos and put togather teams etc.

    The conception was GREAT but Without EM'S it was Very hard to controle.

    Our first game kicked off at Luna bagball field, and was very quickly ended as griefers got onto the field and stole our bagball. Which in turn moved to my house, The field was very small and hard to put togather.

    I propose putting this togather again and have a 10mill Team prize, maybe some EM event items (Currently getting ahold of EM's).

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Fallon valor- ICQ'ed you back.

    I would love to get involved. although Saturdays and Sundays don't work to well for me Fridays are good thought. But I don't have a team yet *Looks at the "Imported AtlatnicVlad" that's just creepy... We should get a team of Vlads together though haha.
