The FOG Digital League (now to be called FOG2DL) will be returning in 2018 and the next season will start on February 1st 2018. Slitherine have kindly agreed to sponsor the tournament again and it will run three times a year (starting February, June and October). More details will follow between now and Xmas.

For those of you who may not have heard of the FOGDL before, this is what we got up to before with FOG1 . . .

Brilliant stuff.
FOG1 amazingly passed me by but I already show 45 hours in FOG2 (which as a married guy with a wife who is less than sympathetic to my hobby/obsession is good going :D )
Count me in for 2018....Will keep my eyes peeled !
Now to fight the first round of the Slitherine tournament.....Seleucids v Rome and reverse fixture.....

No. Have a look at the link in my first post and you will see what we did in FOG1. Basically, you play in divisions of ten players of a similar standard with promotion and relegation between seasons. There is also a themed event which combines qualifying first stage groups with a knock-out later stage.

That sounds perfect. In leagues for other games I've played in, multiple divisions with promotion/relegation were the most fun, giving players of all abilities long term motivation.

Yes, I will be sending invitations out in the New Year. Hopefully, before Xmas I will be able to give you all an outline of what we will be offering in the first season (starting February 1st, 2018). I will just need to confirm a few things with Slitherine before then.
