The Süper 8 (Super 8), is a virtual rugby union competition in Birgeshir played on World Class Rugby 2.

The league emphasizes and takes full advantage of its virtual aspect, implementing "fast-paced" seasons, coed teams, flexible schedule and never-aging players.

History

Former logo of the league (as "Birgeş Lig tӕ Ragbi") used from June 2020 to February 2021.

The first Birgesh virtual rugby union league was the Endüstriyelig, created in 2018 during Birgeshir's affiliation with the Fédération Micraise de Sport on Micras. The league had a realistic approach in its simulation, much like many other micrasian sports leagues. The Endüstriyelig had only 4 teams that represented fictional companies based on real Birgesh projects.

In late May 2020, Birgeshir left Micras disbanding all its sports leagues on the planet, including the Endüstriyelig. Since April 2020, Deniz Yürük expressed his intention of creating a new Birgesh virtual rugby union competition outside Micras and during June of the same year, the league was finally founded under the name of "Birgeş Lig tӕ Ragbi" (BLR), becoming the first Birgesh domestic sport competition to be simulated independently. In March 2021, the league changed its name to Süper 8.

Gameplay

Seasons are played on World Class Rugby 2, a video game released in 1994 for the SNES by Misawa, using the "League" mode of the game. All teams are controlled by the computer with the exception of Olimpëtvor RK which is controlled by Deniz Yürük.

World Class Rugby 2 was chosen for its overall simplicity and as a tribute to Retrogaming. Also, even though the game doesn't allow to create female players, its simple graphics make it less "uncomfortable" to rename players with female names in order to represent them on the field.

Format

There are 8 teams in the league and they play against each other once. At the end of the season, the highest-ranked team is crowned champion.

Seasons are not simulated once every year like in reality and previous Birgesh leagues, but rather every year has an indefinite number of seasons.

Teams

Since Birgeshir aims to become a territorial micronation, at least by claiming territory in a house, the league consists of 8 teams representing some rooms and spaces found in most conventional modern houses.
