To view the Facebook events you probably have to join the Facebook group. It's a closed group, so please apply to join if you haven't yet and you're interested in playing at these tournaments.

To enter a tournament into the league you must notify the league at least 1 month in advance to allow players to prepare travel, accommodation, holidays, armies, etc.
Each tournament has its own outlined rules and as of today there are no specific restrictions other than the smallest number of points being 300 and the biggest 1000. Tournaments may be played with 1 army or 2, depending on the rules of each.


3. Ranking
The winner of each tournament is rewarded 100 points towards their league score and the BEST events scores will be counted in the year are counted for each player. The averages counted are below:
1 Tournament = 1 Best tournament
2 Tournaments = 2 Best tournaments
3 Tournaments = 2 Best tournaments
4 Tournaments = 3 Best tournaments
5 Tournaments = 3 Best tournaments
6 Tournaments = 4 Best tournaments
7 Tournaments = 4 Best tournaments
8+ Tournaments = 5 Best tournaments



Points Scoring

The points towards the league are scored in the following manner:
Winner = 100
2nd = 100 – 1/X *100
3rd = 100 – 2/X *100
4th = 100 – 3/X *100
etc.
X is the number of players. Let’s assume there are 20 players at a tournament.
Winner receives 100
2nd receives 100 – 1/20 *100 = 100 – 5 = 95
3rd receives (based on the above) = 90

If there were 15 players:
Winner receives 100
2nd receives 100 – 1/15*100 = 100 – 6.66 = 94.4
3rd receives 86.7
Hope this makes sense

If a player attended a 2 day tournament (like the one in Stockport) and played only on 1 day, the following rules apply:
Players who have played only 1 day are tallied up, winner of these players receives 50 points and the rest are counted in the manner of 50 – 1/X*50, where X is the number of players who played on 1 day.
After that all players are tallied up into the main tournament group and receive points as normal. However, the players who have played only on 1 day do not receive any points on top of their initial 1-day score.
Updated rankings will be published in an Excel Spreadsheet in the League threads on http://www.thelastalliance.com ; http://www.one-ring.co.uk and The New UK Lord of the Rings Championships Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/472128942815892/

4. FAQ, Errata
The official FAQ and Errata release by Games Workshop stands as the overruling source for all debates.
The TLA Tournament FAQ (to be published soon and in preparation by Hixont, Matt-ShadowLord and BlackMist. Of course all contributions to it will be welcome once it's posted here) is the 2nd highest source of authority in the league.
If the above two have not cleared up the answers please ask a referee.
If a referee isn’t present please roll a dice, on 1-3 one player is right, on 4-6 the other. Subsequently send the question to hobbit.ukleague@gmail.com

Please post here details of the gaming centres and venues which you think could be good to add to this. Please post contact details and I will start approaching places slowly and try to figure out a way to add them into the league. 10 tournaments in a year are not impossible, just need the community to get involved. This is your league guys, it's up to you to make it work, I'm just coordinating the start of it.

The Outriders bring news!
4 tournaments done and there are still 3 tournaments to go, with another 2-3 planned, so even if you join the league now you can still catch up and win it!
