The Limers are the lime green colored team that was introduced in Marble League 2016.

In 2016, the Limers tied for last with the Pinkies, and won the tiebreaker, ending in 15th with 12 points and 1 bronze medal.

The Limers tied for 10th in the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers round, and coincidentally, also placed 10th in the Marble League 2017 that same year. In the 2017 season, they received 1 silver and 1 bronze medal, and ended with 101 points.

In the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers, they placed 4th in Group C and were able to participate in Marble League 2018, although they only finished 14th.

They have earned 4 medals in their past 3 appearances in the Marble League, the most recent being a gold medal in the Snowboard Cross event in Marble League 2018, their first in the team's history.

After falling short of qualifying for Marble League 2019, the Limers participated in the Marble League Showdown 2019 for one of eight qualifying spots for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers. The Limers came last, meaning they did not qualify for Marble League 2020.

HistoryEdit

DSC01554

The Limers come from the Adriatic Coast in the south of Europe. To be exact, they come from Sotsevsa, a coastal city across the sea to the southeast of the Gulf of Tartufo, which is renowned for its ancient philosophical teachings, and for hosting the annual ancient marble racing tournament, the Syndesmarble. Their name comes from two sources: the large limestone deposits in the Gulf of Tartufo, and from the team's favorite lime dessert, cassata.

The four original members of the Limers, Sublime, Lemonlime, Jellime and Slimelime, started off their racing career competing in local competitions at Sotsevsa. Their dominant performance there earned them a spot in the Syndesmarble. One year, the team did so well at the Syndesmarble they caught the attention of marble sports aficionado Greg Woods. Woods approached the team and invited them to join his Fruit Circuit, which they accepted.

The Limers, along with now-inactive teams like the Strawberry Strudels, the Boysenberry Ballers and the Grape Nuts, were one of the first teams in the Fruit Circuit when it started touring in 2004, outlasting these teams due to the team's persistence. The Limers were later joined in the Fruit Circuit by the O'rangers, the Raspberry Racers, and Mellow Yellow, which the team found more challenging. In fact, the team quickly became rivals with the Raspberry Racers due to their geographic proximity and contrasting colors.

When Marble League 2016 was announced, the Fruit Circuit was given a limited number of spots, increasing the competition between the teams. During the third-to-last race, Slimelime nudged Razzy upon launching off the starting gate, killing his momentum. Slimelime came second in the race, while Razzy finished in sixth. This helped the Limers win the final Fruit Circuit, ensuring their qualification along with Mellow Yellow and the O'rangers, but not the Raspberry Racers.

The Limers came in to Marble League 2016 with high hopes. However, the team had a poor performance overall, gaining only two points in the first half of the competition from the second event, Relay Race. They managed to gain points in all but two of the second half events, including a bronze medal in Event 11, Quartet Diving. This was not enough, with the team coming 15th overall, only avoiding a joint last with the Pinkies thanks to their disqualification in Event 12, Hurdles.

The Limers felt that the points system was too heavily weighted towards gaining medals, punishing lower-placing teams. They appealed to the IMC to have the points systems changed, and their plea was accepted. The points system had been changed for all future Marble League seasons. During the offseason, the Limers started a rigorous training plan on the cliffs on the Gulf of Tartufo and started building a training center outside of Sotsevsa. Jellime left the team to become an adviser for the Syndesmarble, and had Goolime take his place.

The Limers started off the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers poorly, gaining no points in the first event. However, the team managed to gain enough points in the next three events to qualify for Marble League 2017. With this, the team were hoping to improve from the last season. Sadly, they started off poorly in Marble League 2017, coming within the bottom half in the first two events.

Thankfully, the Limers saw a beacon of hope in their sight as they won a silver medal in Event 3, Fidget Spinner Collision. The team proceeded to finish in the top half of the next four events, including a bronze medal in Event 6, Relay Run, putting them into 2nd place overall. However, they had a poor second half of the season and ended up finishing in 10th place overall. The team were still happy with the results. In fact, they managed to gain points from all twelve events under the new points system.

Once again, the Limers went into rigorous training over the offseason. The team were invited to the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers draw and were surprised to see that their rivals from the times of the Fruit Circuit, the Raspberry Racers, were also present, and they both ended up in the same qualification group (Group C). The Limers managed to beat their rivals in the Curling and Halfpipe events, and still qualified for Marble League 2018 in 4th, behind the Raspberry Racers, who also qualified in 2nd, with only 1 point between them.

Unfortunately, the Limers had another poor season, finishing within the bottom half in all but one event up to Event 7, Snow Rally. It was clear the team could no longer win the competition, but they were still determined to not come last. Sublime was selected to take part in Event 8, Snowboard Cross. He came second in his heat, behind Rozzy of the Raspberry Racers, and then won the final, gaining the team their first gold medal of any Marble League event.

The Limers went on to finish in the middle of the pack in all the remaining events, except for a last place finish in Event 11, Ice Hockey. The team ended Marble League 2018 in 14th, finishing ahead of fellow Fruit Circuit team Mellow Yellow on medals. However, the team were more concerned with the fact that their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had beaten them in all but two events.

The Limers continued to face their rivals in the offseason, coming 2nd and beating the Raspberry Racers in the 100 Meter Water Race. Unfortunately, they lost to their rivals in the Amazing Maze Marble Race, despite having performed so well into the finals. The Limers had put in a bid to host Marble League 2019, but lost to the Oceanics. This, along with the recent losses to their rivals, led to a drop in morale. The team decided to hire a new coach, Keylime, hoping to get themselves back to form soon.

The Limers had a great start to the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, coming in second after the second event, Block Pushing. However, they only managed to come 12th in the third event, Relay Race. To add insult to injury, Slimelime finished in second-to-last in the fourth event, Underwater Race. Meanwhile, Cocoa of the Chocolatiers came in fourth, resulting in the Limers missing out on Marble League 2019 by three points. Their time in the qualifiers was also soured by Limers fans throwing debris onto the track during the third event, allegedly in an attempt to disrupt the Raspberry Racers. Team Primary did not finish the race and blamed their DNF on the Limers fans' debris.

The Limers spent their extended offseason trying to rebuild themselves emotionally and mentally. They really wished to get over all the recent mishaps they had. When the Marble League Showdown 2019 was announced, the team immediately returned to the cliffs of Tartufo to train again. Unfortunately, things didn't go the way they had hoped once they returned to the Seven Seas Stadium for the Showdown. In fact, the team came into the Showdown under immense pressure, mainly because their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had won Marble League 2019.

True to their fears, the Showdown went poorly for the Limers, coming last in two of the events and staying in last place overall throughout the entire competition. When their failure to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers was confirmed during the final event, Balancing, some Limers fans stormed onto the field in anger, and the team had to be escorted off the pitch by security for their safety.

The Limers had been in their worst shape and would have to miss out on Marble League 2020. No wonder they were very devastated at this point. But when they heard of the announcement of Marbula One, the team rejoiced once again. They immediately accepted an invitation to Marbula One 2020 on offer, and chose Sublime and Limelime to represent them. Their announcement proved controversial, but the Limers didn't mind it. In fact, the team remained enthusiastic as they aimed to put their underperformance in Showdown 2019 behind them and focus on the upcoming events.

The Limers' willingness to take part in Marbula One is yet another proof of the team's resilience in overcoming years of inconsistent performances in the Marble League. Ever since their bombed 2019 performances, they never look back again, and will never allow anything bad to shake them. Time will tell whether the team come out stronger than anyone could ever have imagined.[2]

Trivia Edit

  • The Limers share a rivalry with the Raspberry Racers. The two teams competed together in the Fruit Circuit, a tournament in which the Limers won, as well as the 2018 Winter Marble League, a tournament in which the Raspberry Racers did notably better than the Limers in.
    • In fact, the Limers lost both of the matchups that they had with their rivals, specifically in Team Pursuit and Curling.
  • Debris from the Limers' fan area in the stands allegedly blocked Mary from completing the Relay Race in ML19 Qualifiers. Despite supposedly causing Mary's DNF, the Limers fans were not attacked by Team Primary's fans. Primary's fans instead got into a fight with Raspberry Racers fans and were subsequently banned from the stadium.
