The LBL is a supported league of the United WarFare League under the sponsorship and creation of the league organizer Tony Etter. The league will focus on Line Battles for the Battle Grounds 2 mod and realism gameplay. Focusing on the time periods between 1774-1782, the Line Battle League will take place on a interactive battle map for Regiments enrolled to fight over the Thirteen Colonies as either the Continental Army or the British Commonwealth. The league begins in 1774 during the 1st Continental Congress as British Regiments begin planning the Coastal invasion in four strategic sectors of the Battle Map. After the invasion, both sides will begin getting assigned to scripted battles in which teams must try to win in a Line Battle style match. Teams are fighting for cities and strategic strongholds in each of the four sectors and as the league progresses start taking over territories and supply lines. The league does not just focus on playing ability and power. Perks associated with stronghold positions and supply lines ensure an advantage heading into combat emphasizing strategy of not just your team but for your entire faction as well. Regiments will be forced to work together to formulate a grand strategy in defeating the other side and laying claim to the ownership of the colonies!

I wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors, hopefully someone can make those maps you requested. If not, then Strangeways, here we come.

"both sides will begin getting assigned to scripted battles"

Scripted means you'll already know who wins or loses. Dumbass.

Why, you won't know who will stand after a bayonet charge and who hits how many in his volleys.. I guess its totally open apart from the maneuvers that you do

I guess that is confusing. Okay, the scripted battles.


As regiments fight on the Battle map for dominance and taking over strategic stongholds, events occur if conditions are met. Say your regiment is fighting in the Southern Regions with others as a part of the Continental Army. Lets say the US has been defeating the British Commonwealth in that region and it looks like it is about to collapse. This is when a scripted battle occurs. Say for this instance Cowpens, because this was a turning point in the Revolutionary war. If the Continentals win this scripted battle, they will finally and officially route all the British out of the Southern Colonies. Plus scripted battles also have perks associated with them if they are won. So, maybe the winning regiment of the scripted battle or the winning side will have a new advantage heading into a new territory. Say for example a slight damage bonus. Because they are veterans of a scripted battle.

Why is Hearts of Iron popping into my head?

Like you pretty much have everybody on a giant Risk board of the colonies and then you just randomly place different teams onto different battles for the week. You can even make up alternate history time lines based on the outcomes and everything.

I think I missed the point but I'm intrigued.

Thats the synops actually. No favoritism. Easy way to say what it will be like is to look at the East vs West league the UWFL supports. In this league Allies or Axis units fight for Europe according to the timeline it happened in WW2. 3 stages. 1st stage was just won by the allies. That was the beginning of the war (Africa, Italy, Russia, etc). Now we are in stage 2 next week (DDay, France, Belgium, etc). Then the last stage is the final assaults on the home lands such as Britain, Germany, Poland, etc.

So, its based on how it really happened, but free will in how it plays out.


Heres the battle map for the East vs west ladder:
