League 97

League 97 (L97 for short) takes a traditionally offbeat build from League 5 (97/20/35) and standardizes it to be the only build allowed. From there, it incorporates (icon) deflation battling, a term used to describe a rule set that seeks to weaken the damage output in the dome. The chief goal of all these changes is to allow longer battles, the idea being that this is the best way to find out who was the better battler. With the anagram metagame, 1 - 3 turns for a match was not uncommon in low leagues. In L97, 10-15 rounds per battle is the norm.

Events

The 2014 championship event has come to an end! Thank you to everyone who participated in League 97 in 2014. The 2015 season is slated to begin in March!

With ten tournaments spanning two seasons, it is now time to discuss changes to the L97 metagame. An official discussion is taking place on the Jellyneo Forums. Participants new and old alike are encouraged to share their thoughts. An informal scrimmage will take place on the Battledome Chat in February to test out slight rule changes. A vote on proposed rule changes will take place following the scrimmage. Any battler that has participated in an official L97 tournament will be able to vote.

You can read a summary of the 2013 season here! A summary of the 2014 season will be written soon!

Rules

L97 is a special event with rules that differ from traditional 2-Player battling. The L97 format rules can be found here. The primary goal of these rules is to make battles lengthier. Offensive weapons are limited to 12 icons; Dual Duties are limited to 15.0 total icons. Full-blocking Dual Duties are not allowed, and neither is Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield. To further promote competitive balance, faerie abilities are limited to the level 25 tier and lower.

*Before signing up and participating in an L97 event, it is vital to understand the rules! Check here for the full rulebook.
