We’ve just passed the halfway point of the Season 9 regular season and what an eventful week it’s been…
MLE MeRch Store Launches
Last Wednesday we announced the launch of our new store! If you haven’t checked it out already then what are you waiting for?! There are tons of great products on offer allowing supporters to represent MLE and their favourite franchises. And don’t forget for the next 7 days there is 15% of all orders, just use the redeem option at the top of the store page! All proceeds raised from the store will go back into MLE, primarily franchise logo commission. We want to take this moment to thank all those who have shown their support so far. At the time of writing we have amassed over 70 sales!
What’s more from tomorrow, after community requests, we have decided to allow a level of customisation to products. From tomorrow you will be add to add text as well as additional logos to products! Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement for the “launch” of this feature.

MLE community members sgtmc50cal and Scoobert Doobert will be bringing their fun weekly recap to the MLE Network every Monday evening.

BAWLS PLAY OF THE WEEK | WEEK 3
Though week 5 may have just concluded this weekend just gone it’s time to announce the winner of week 3. A big well played is in order for Troubadour (Bulls, Academy League). You can see their winning play below as well as the other top two plays from week 3. As week 4 was a break week there was no play of the week competition. Find out next time who was the BAWLS Week 5 Play of the Week!
NO FORFEITING PLEASE!
There have been a few instances of players quitting mid-series this season. We deem this to be unsporting behaviour and as such will be handing out severe disciplinary action to anyone guilty of this. We pride ourselves on providing a fun, friendly and respectful environment for our community and such individual actions & behaviour have an unfair effect on others. Any player found guilty of quitting and forfeiting will be suspended for 10 weeks of season play (not including playoffs). We are also looking at retroactive disciplinary action for those who are guilty of such action before this week, once a decision has been made we will let you all know. Please remember when competing in MLE to be play respectfully and sportingly.
COORDINATOR POSITION AVAILABLE
We are on the look out for a new social media coordinator. If you have an interest in leading the social media operations of MLE, helping to promote MLE and working with other departments such as media & marketing to ensure communication across social media platforms is clear and presentable then you maybe just the person. Keep an eye out over the next couple of days in the Discord server for how to apply for the position.
We will also be advertising for additions to the moderation team so keep your eyes peeled in the Discord server for an announcement regarding this.
As you may have seen the way we handle community suggestion has undergone a bit of an overhaul. The new system we have in place will make it far easier for us to handle suggestions as well as offer the community clearer visibility on the responses to every suggestion posted. For more information on the changes see the recent post in Community Announcement channel.
There’s been a few small updates to our website you may have noticed. Firstly the league standings have been updated so win % is now the defacto method of sorting followed by head-to-head. The standings also now have streak & form columns and you can click on the individual wins or losses in the form column to see the relevant match results & stats. You can now also see which league every player is competing in, neat huh? There’s going to be a few more additions and improvements in the coming weeks too! Big thanks to Stevo for his continued work with the website.
And that’s the news for another week folks! Not too much to add really but be sure to check the Sgt. & Scooby show tonight on Twitch. Show them guys some support for the great show they will be putting on. We hope everyone enjoyed the return of the live broadcasts this weekend, we know they were some technical issues that affected Sunday night stream. Unfortunately this was out of control, blame those pesky Twitch servers. Nevertheless onward & upward they say. Anyway, until next time…
Have fun & see out there,
