Shadowrun at The House
This is Translated from Here
Combat Biking was on in 2013 Vernon Prudhomme as a publicity stunt for his motorcycle racetrack in Baton Rouge / CAS invented.
He hired a bunch of motorcycle gang members and -stuntmen in to create a game with motorcycles, stunts, Padded batons and paintball guns as a promotional event. With much fanfare, he campaigned on radio and trick for the event. This was the public good, and was subject to the local news, but also attracted the attention of Go Gear "The Mauler ". This appeared to collect protection money, but were challenged by Prudhomme to a game.
This was a week later, with unpadded weapons and shotguns with rubber ammunition executed.
The television broadcast led some donors to contact Vernon Prudhomme in conjunction. Within a year there were six teams nationally competed regularly against each other. Until 2026 was Combat biking an established sports events with a league of its own, fixed rules and great media attention.
Despite the name, the WCCL (was World Combat Cyclist League ) for a long time an almost exclusively North American thing: The sport reached only in UCAS , CAS and CFS its maximum popularity, while – as in Europe – Urban Brawl or Hoverball preferred, and in Aztlan that based azthekischer tradition – but no less violent – Court ball game was far more popular.
Running a club is very expensive otherwise. While selling motorcycle manufacturer their bikes at cost to the teams (in exchange for the publicity), but if you cyberware for players, hospital costs, magic , etc. healing, weapons, armor to count, quickly takes a lot nuyen together. These must first through commercials, simsense etc. replayed commercialization, Pay TV.
The WCCL was originally divided into two associations. The top 4 of each association met for Play Offs and the Champions of each association to fight for the world championship in Biker Bowl. After an extensive restructuring are 2073 all international leagues – Europe, Asia-Pacific, North, East, West and Latin America – under the umbrella of WCCL. The top two teams in each of these leagues now meet in a series of playoffs to each other to decide the world championship to the Biker Bowl.
2052 was the WCCL in North America from the following teams, divided into two conferences :
Eastern Conference (Association East)
" Atlanta Rebels »
" Baton Rouge Red Devils "
" Chicago Lightning »
" Cleveland Commandos "
" DeeCee Shurikens " ( Washington FDC )
" New York Marauders ", 2072 owned by Spinrad Industries
Western Conference (Association West)
" Los Angeles Sabers »
" New Orleans Buzzsaws »
" Houston Mustangs »
" Oakland Hogs " (from Novatech – Exec William Ager bought in 2063 and after Seattle moved)
" Tacoma Timberwolves " (Seattle)
" Texas Rattlers "
Until 2077 the number of WCCL teams was increased considerably in North America, and the two Conferences were in turn subdivided into two divisions:
New York Marauders
Dallas Red Devils
San Francisco Knights
Los Angeles Sabers
Apache Mustangs (Cheyenne)
New Orleans Buzzsaws
California Rangers (Sacramento)
The former "Oakland Hogs" operate now under the name "Seattle Hogs", and the "Baton Rouge Red Devils" as the longest serving league team seem to move to Dallas-Fort Worth , together with appropriate renaming to have brought behind. In addition, now there are several NAN teams and one team each from Tír Tairngire and – with Miami – also one of the Caribbean League represented at the North American Combat Biker franchise.
