Plenty of time for this gameweek. I can't get started until MOBIUS gets back.

I expect all the other teams are glad we're not facing the bashy teams first round!

We'll just wait until you've skilled up... er.

First game over Beta Blockers 2-0 Dubious corsets

Classis chaos v orcs game, massive brawl for 16 turns.

Ended up with 2 of mine KOed and 1 orc badly hurt, 4 KOed (although some made it back into play)

One score in each half - the second from a lucky sprint clear of the brawl.

Most amazing moment was the orc who got hit by 4 successive pushes and ended up in the crowd despite starting the turn in the middle section of the pitch. Also notable for my beastmen not fumbling one pickup (out of 3!) I have one CW at level 2 and both teams are looking forward to more squishy opposition. Hope you guys bought subs!!!

MOBIUS

Will have to check with the boss. Might even be able to do tonight, otherwise late evening Tuesday or Wednesday should be a goer as we're likely to being catching up on movies those days.

Game started!

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:13:39
I'll see if I can update you as we play. Turn 1, I receive. Witch Elf blitzes catcher into the crowd.

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:21:16
Turn 2, the second of his catchers is KOed after a strange turn where MOBIUS doesn't block...

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:34:31
ARGH! Fumble a touchdown pass after I've used my reroll on a block to get my ball carrier out of trouble (would have been better dodging!)

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:38:06
Tizzy is bringing wine.

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:46:53
Turn 6, it's an almighty scrum in the middle of the pitch around where I fumbled the ball. It must be me, I inspire this kind of play.

Funko
28-01-2010, 20:58:43
Wow, what a crap half. 0-0. One of his blitzers got KOed trying to dodge, and he injured a player with the last move in the 8th turn when he couldn't score. Oops.

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:10:34
I KILLED A CATCHER!

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:12:08
Turn 11, sacked the quarter back, 3 squares from a score... not sure I can be stopped (but this game always surprises me!)

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:15:04
Took a cheeky pass for the +1 and it's 1-0!

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:16:08
All 3 of his KOs wake up!

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:21:54
He fumbles the pick up from the restart! I breech the line again. Sprint 2 squares and pick the ball up with a lone man... not much can get to him though.

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:27:44
GAH! Forgot to blitz out of trouble. Prob could have scored. Never mind

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:30:30
He reclaims ball, passes down field and injures the blitzer who catches the ball trying to dodge out of trouble!

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:31:29
Argh the cruelty of blood bowl I pick up and pass downfield for a TD. 2-0

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:32:12
Both his KOs wake up! as does my Witch Elf. That's 6-6 KO wake ups. Turn 15.

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:41:02
That's it! 2-0. Amazingly my runners failed to get +1 for a pass on the last two turns needing 2+. And he got an injury at the last minute

De Verliezers 2 (2 cas) - 0 (1 cas) Sin City Bengals

For some reason not showing my kill. He must have Apoced?
I got 4 KO to 1 too, which is nice.

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:42:28
$30k and no levels up. Gah. One of those passes would have done it. :(

MOBIUS
28-01-2010, 21:49:49
Yeah, used my apoth wisely. Took the fractured leg like a man (I am humans!), and waited for dodging the kill...

Can't believe I got so badly taken apart by wimpy Elves - I might was well have fielded a team of one legged Gobbos!

Just when I thought I'd weathered the storm of the 1st half, everything turned to crap in the second. Managed 8 SPPs, not sure how that compares with the victors...?

Good game, if a little frustrating at times...:shoot:

The next team had better watch out!

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:52:58
Got bonuses for 2 passes, 2 touchdowns, 3 injuries I think? + the MotM = 19.

Funko
28-01-2010, 21:53:41
I think there are tricks you pick up from playing against humans that you never do against the computer. It's a totally different game!

Right, I'm off. Good game though!

Loved the commentary. We should do this regularly :D

Funko

They've massively fixed the tabbing out. I had my browser on the right screen and could just move the mouse across to write my updates.

MOBIUS
29-01-2010, 10:33:32
I still have tabbing out issues, but then my best PC is a fairly middle of the range laptop which, according to the minimum spec, shouldn't have any right running the game.

Would have been good to have been able to add my perspective of the game...:D

Funko
29-01-2010, 11:01:08
Add it now.

MOBIUS
29-01-2010, 11:31:26
I'm at work. Not that that's an excuse. Will do in a bit.

MOBIUS
29-01-2010, 13:29:07
Well I can't really add much more to your excellent commentary. Was a bit of a bummer losing both my starting catchers so quickly and indeed being badly beaten up across the whole field by Dark Elves - they're supposed to be wimpy, right? I figured Humans would have been more durable than they so far seem to have been.

As for the non blocking in the first turn, there didn't really seem to be any good match ups (all one dice), I think partly that was my fault in the set up as my line was made up of generic linemen - I bolstered this with a blitzer subsequently. And, playing Dark Elves, I was trying to work on containment, which I thought worked relatively well in the first half as you almost looked as you were using Dwarf tactics to try and walk the ball into the endzone. Again, with the non blocking, I got taught a lesson trying a one dice block at the end of the half when one of my players stupidly got his leg broken trying to block someone when there was no advantage to be had in any case...:clueless:

In the second half, I was guilty firstly of poorly defending the ball, basically allowing a weak player to get steamrolled and for funko to sack my QB for a quick score soon after.

Next I fumbled the kickoff (I had a spare reroll, but it wasn't activated - in fact I ended the game with one reroll despite my comedy of errors on pitch!?), allowing funko to pounce again somewhat jammily. I think he makes a mistake at that point allowing me to make a desperate tackle and get the ball back. Unfortunately I'd used my catchers for a bit of petty ganging up on his Witch instead of moving clear. So I threw to a guy in traffic and it's caught! If I can just break clear, I stand an outside chance of being able to score a breakaway TD. Unfortunately he is tackled (where is that reroll dammit!) and injured for his troubles. funko scoops up and due to the open nature of the field it is a formality for him to throw a TD pass at the death.

2-0 to the Verliezers!

Sin City to lick their wounds and look forward to hospitalising the Skaven in the next game!

MOBIUS
29-01-2010, 13:32:53
Oh I forgot to mention funko's attempted killing of one of my catchers (I think it was Chadd Orksinker), luckily he gets to live for another game due to my good use of my apothecary.:bounce:

Funko
29-01-2010, 14:27:41
You went for a pickup with a guy with sure hands, he gets a free re-roll for Sure Hands, if he fails that you can't also then use a team re-roll to re-roll for a third time.

Also, stand another player next to the ball when you pick it up. Failing a 3+ with a free re-roll is much less likely than a 4+. I think it's 1 failure in 9 with the 3+ vs 1 failure in 4 for the 4+.

Funko
29-01-2010, 14:30:31
My mistake was blocking instead of blitzing so my guy with the ball could run into the endzone. I thought I had eradicated that mistake when we were playing before but just forgot, out of practice.

Oh and I think you'd already used a team re-roll in the turn that blitzer tried to dodge out of trouble, and he was in 2 TZs so he needed a 4 anyway.

Definitely agree that 1d blocks are very rarely worth it. Although I did totally fluke winning one on the line one time and then rolled up the rest of your line with 2d blocks. You said "you're just showing off now" I wasn't, I made a risky move and just got lucky.

Theres something about CG BB leagues - everytime we have one a poster dissappears without a trace.

Don't remember seeing fp since the last one and now fist has wandered off.

Any other posters with an F?

Funko
03-02-2010, 16:54:01
To be fair, fp did say he was going to struggle to visit CG at all because he was moving to New Zealand and going to be massively busy.

King_Ghidra

kg 3 - 0 fist

some bad luck for fist on ball handling rolls, but i feel i was good value for the win. my wardancers were predictably effective and fist couldn't get his offense going at all before i shut him down.

no skillups sadly, but no long term injuries or deaths for either team at least should give us both hope for subsequent games

Fistandantilus
16-02-2010, 09:20:43
Yeah nothing seemed to work but I was outplayed anyway. After the first turnover I played even more risky and it didn't really pay off.

I found the culprit however, that thrower can't really fumble trying to pick up the ball and fail to complete three short passes in a single game. He will join the line of scrimmage soon to have a chance to prove himself worthy of this team.

Great game KG, sorry I had to log in a hurry after the game, had friends at the door.

Bring on the second round :)

Uh-oh, just found out that a gigantic wargaming and boardgames venue has opened in Cardiff in the last few months and that one of my friends is involved. They will even be running a 2 day Bloodbowl Tournament in Aprilů

I am genuinely afraid for my free time!:nervous:

KG 2:0 Beta-1 :( 2:1 casualties (2:2 in total but I had one on a crowd push)

Didn't kill enough of his in the first half then got taken to peices by his wardancers in the second.

Seemed I was completely unable to pass an armor roll tonight until turn 15 where my team finally showed up and killed one, crowd pushed another and decked most of the remainder.

On the bright side I now have a BM with 3 arms :) I might actually be able to pick up the ball without usuing all my rerolls!

King_Ghidra
17-02-2010, 23:13:01
galadriel greensox 2 - 0 beta's blockers

beta was unlucky in that his best bashing turn came right at the end of the game. for most of the match we were level on players or i was just one man down. the wardancers were again amazing, their mobility and resilience made them a constant pain in beta's side, and my other line elves were doing enough to stop his offensive advance, meaning the first half ended scoreless after beta's long opening drive.
second half i scored quite quickly, my two wardancers breaking through a small hole of their own making, and then i got a late td after breaking up beta's attempt to level the game.
as always when playing bashy teams, if you get lucky on armour and injury rolls with a skill team you should have the chances to win, and this is pretty much what happened

King_Ghidra
17-02-2010, 23:14:59
and i now have a treeman :D so no more easy pickings on the LoS, bitches.

Funko
18-02-2010, 08:49:08
I wish I'd picked a better starting roster for my Dark Elves. Never mind. Still annoyed about the pitiful cash payout from the first game.

Sorry about not moving the game turn thing on, I didn't realise that was something that had to be done manually.

King_Ghidra
18-02-2010, 11:46:57
Still annoyed about the pitiful cash payout from the first game.

Don't know what your FF is but you know it's FF + 1d6 x 10k gold for earnings.

So far i've played teams with 0 and 1 FF i think. Not giving themselves much chance. I started with 3 and now have 4 i think.

Fistandantilus
18-02-2010, 16:06:13
I think it's fame not fan factor that affects the cash you get at the end of the match?

Fistandantilus
18-02-2010, 16:29:41
Yeah, just checked, from LRB5


2. Generate winnings for the match. Each coach rolls a D6 and adds their FAME (see page 18). Your team receives this amount x 10,000 gold pieces as winnings for the match. If you won or tied the match you receive an additional 10,000 gold pieces. If you won the match you may also choose to re-roll your D6, but you must accept the second result even if itis worse than the first. Remember that teams that concede a match do not receive any winnings.


Fame is calculated at the start of the match based on how many fans show up

To determine how many fans turn up to support your team, roll 2D6 and add your FanFactor to the total. Multiply the score by 1,000 to find the number of fans that have turned up to support your team.


If you have more fans than your opponents fame is +1, if you have more than double the fans fame is +2.
So FF does not guarantee more money, just makes more likely that you have more fans than the opponent, and at the very best is just 20k more..
I guess it maybe pays off in the long run

King_Ghidra
18-02-2010, 17:50:23
ah of course, sorry, my bad.

Funko
19-02-2010, 09:00:54
Yeah. I had +1 and won the game and still only got 30k. Which was the minimum. Bah.

Oh dear. 2-1 to the Wererats in the final turn.

Two dead, numerous injured. I think I ended up with only four players on the field.:(

These humans are more fragile than a team of undead leprous gobbos!:lol:

Funko
23-02-2010, 08:48:33
Any firm numbers on the casualties for the league stats?

2 dead?! And Beta's Blockers up next. You might be able to afford a star player or two. :)

Oh shit. Forgot it was Inter Chelsea tonight. Can we do Thursday?

The Shaker
23-02-2010, 09:45:32
erm ok, got vomiting kids today so that might be distracting anyway. Visitors on thursday but i'll try and get on anyway.

2 dead ...ouch!

Fistandantilus
23-02-2010, 10:20:22
Pretty busy at work and can't do a recap maybe I'll do later if anyone's interested?

Anyway I believe it's 4 cas (2 deaths) for me, 1 cas for mobius.

Inter - Chelsea is on wednesday, not sure what kind of time zone you brits are in but that's tomorrow here :p

Funko

Yeah, recap later would be great.

Ah shit, so I'll miss it due to my wine course. It's confusing enough that it's on the wrong night.

Up to you Ric, Thursday or tonight both fine.

Ok, so quick recap.

I lost the coin toss and MOBIUS elected to kick so I picked up the ball and sent gutter runners wide to receive a pass.

The humans made an excellent job covering my receivers, I advanced my thrower in a loose cage to the centerfied while we were both fighting for space. At this point (around turn 3-4) we both suffered a CAS, MOBIUS used the apothecary and saved his player while I decided against it (was only a linerat :p) even if that meant a potential numeric inferiority in the second half.

The turn after that a human blitzer died in a block clearing a path for my thrower who handled it to a gutter runner for the easy score. 1-0

Sin City Bengals with the ball now, a thrower ran ahead to try a pass but failed a GFI and the ball hit the ground.

I rerelloed into a double skull while trying to clear a path to reach the loose ball. Turnover! The thrower stood up, picked up the ball, sent it deep in a medium/long pass to the catcher who went straight in the end zone tieing the score. 1-1

Last two turns of the first half went uneventuful as we both tried some risky passes which did not complete.

Second half starts. 10 vs 10 with the human in possess of the ball.
MOBIUS was able to open a gap in my defenses along the left side of the pitch and passed the ball to a catcher who only needed three more steps to reach the end zone. In my turn I was able to surround him along the side line and when MOBIUS tried to pass the ball outside the cage it went out of bounds.

So I pushed the catcher in the crowd, picked up the ball and advanced to the middle of the pitch. This is where the tide changed as in an attempt to stop my advance the humans tried to surround my rats but to do so they had to leave a lot of players exposed to blocks.
In the next two turns I was able to do many blocks but it was actually a turnover (I rerolled into a couple a both down dices) that caused the Sin City Bengals second death. The turn after that humans were left exposed again and sufferend another KO and a gouged eye.

A gutter runner sprinted toward the end zone with the ball but two human blitzers dodged into tacklezones like they were elves and reached my runner, knocking him down and picking up the ball.

With three turns left MOBIUS retreated those blitzers in a corner of his own end zone in an attempt to defend the tie but my rats (at this point it's 10 vs 5) swarmed that corner, pushed one of the blitzers in the crowd and waited for the last turn to score the winning TD.

Crazy game. Some bad luck with armor rolls for MOBIUS. Judging how his players pass and dodge and how frail they are I think these are effectively elves in disguise :p

Of course the linerat who got injured during the match got the MoM award and is the only rat who leveled... and will miss the next game due to injury :D

Poor MOBIUS suffered as many CAS as the rest of the league combined :nervous:

Funko
24-02-2010, 13:51:44
I also believe his 2 deaths are the only recorded deaths in any of our CG league games, is that right?

I won't be asking him for the lottery numbers.

Poor MOBIUS suffered as many CAS as the rest of the league combined :nervous:

At least I'm best at something!:provost:

Yeah and it's Chaos Warriors next!!!:eek::eek::eek:

As Fist says, the latter injuries probably came as I became horribly exposed throwing bodies on the line (literally!) to stop his advance: once you lose a couple of guys, it's easier to lose more! I almost held out for the draw but ran out of manpower...

I can't believe I've been smashed about first by Elves and then Skaven, oh the embarrassment...:o

Still, I won't give in until my last human has fallen, which is looking increasingly likely!

A linesman has sneaked wide, is he going to make a pass? Or just splitting my defence.

4 man gang block and foul on a black orc injures him, no-one sent off. I've left the touchdown area free for him. Turn 12

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:16:55
I suspect he's going to hang around just outside the touch down area until T16.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:17:45
Gang foul the stragglers, and hope important players are sent off so can't be killed. :)

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:22:53
Get some men to the ball carrier by blitzing the screen. He's on the goalline but will have to block against the odds to be able to run it in without dodging. Turn 14 for him

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:23:16
He's done it. Have I forced him to score with 2 turns to respond? Yes!

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:23:59
2-1 to the orcs.

10-7 to the orcs in players on the pitch.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:24:19
Turn 14. So actually 3 turns to equalize.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:29:11
GOt the ball, sneaked round the gap in the defence. 2 blitzers and a linesman with the ball. One of the blitzers falls over on a sprint. Of course he does.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:31:24
he blitzes my ball carrier and of course it goes to one of his guys who collects it. He's on the touchline though. I might see if I can crowdsurf him

Funko

Nope, fail the dodge.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:33:44
ok that's it. I'm not risking any last turn blocks. Will end my turn 16, can't get the ball into the end zone from there.

Funko
02-03-2010, 21:35:44
haha his black orc knocked himself over. Can't resist the foul.

Game over! Shakey wins 2-1.

Funko

Oooh, it looks like it does have the result. I had to log in after the game but my TV is down to 870 and it has the score.

02-03-2010, 21:37:21

It was a proper game of Blood Bowl.

Funko
03-03-2010, 08:52:54
I wasn't even really that unlucky overall. I made dozens of dodges and never failed one that wasn't out of 2 TZs. 3 completed passes, 2 hand offs, didn't have any bad blocks (not that I threw many) and I took down black orcs a few times. My KOed man came straight back. It was just on the injury rolls I was unlucky.

Including the rock I had a mere 8 failed armour rolls, 5 injured, 1 KO, 2 stunned. I think it's a 1 in 9 chance to get an injury normally, so that is slightly unlucky.

Funko

Corsets 1-1 Greensox

I received the kick-off and after a couple of turns my wardancer made a break through a somewhat porous orc line and headed for the corner. At this point i had to make a decision whether to stall or score the TD. However, my mind was pretty much made up by the next couple of turns, in which i lost my best wardancer to a gang block and my treeman to a foul. That was two of my three game-changing players finished in two turns. We were even at this point in cas actually, but i also had some KO'ed players and ric had a sub and i decided i wanted to defend undermanned against orcs for as little time as possible. I scored late and the half ended 1-0.

Second half ric came out and formed a solid cage which ground its way down the pitch. I had toyed with giving him an easy passage to the end zone in the hopes of getting the ball back quickly for a game-winning TD, but at the same time i thought he might make a mistake in his cage drive so i defended as bravely and gamely as possible instead. Sadly ric didn't make a mistake and he was always in control, finally scoring on turn 15.

I had two turns to win the match, and thanks to his bad kick my remaning wardancer got the ball on the half way line and sprinted to within a few squares of the end zone. Ric got a two dice block on her but only ended up pushing her. I was left with two 3+ dodges to win in the final turn, but sadly she didn't make it.

Despite the final turn, 1-1 was definitely a fair result. I think i was a little unlucky in who i lost to cas, but at the same time i failed very few other armor rolls, and my own block dice went pretty much my way, so i have no complaints.

Bad results from this: the treeman got a niggle and misses the next game, so i cut him. I now only have 9 players on the roster. Thank god for journeymen.

Funko
08-03-2010, 09:22:46
Gah, the story of the early part of that game sounds familiar. In fact... the whole game sounds fairly familiar.

Hmm. I could cut my 2 linesmen that miss the next game. For purely inducements sake... Well, maybe not the one on 5 SPP, interesting thought.

What was the official casualty count overall?

Funko
08-03-2010, 09:25:27
Shakey moves up to 2nd and is the first player to take any points, and indeed the first person to score against the Greensox.

King_Ghidra
08-03-2010, 09:57:58
i think it was 2-1 on cas to me, because one of shakey's was a foul, and again, don't think they count for cas purposes

Funko
08-03-2010, 12:14:26
Cool updated. I think almost nothing counts for casualties in terms of SPPs other than blocks.

In future leagues we could move to counting all injuries inflicted, however they were inflicted.

Funko
08-03-2010, 12:15:27
And after tonight we'll be past the half way point in the league.

Funko
08-03-2010, 22:03:43
Well... it's a shame I shut my browser down the commentary would have been very entertaining, if expletive ridden.

I kicked off. Typical skaven return, couple of gutter runners go deep, ball carrier huddles. In the second and third turns he kills one of my linesmen and injures a blitzer. I can't remember which order that happened. Entertainingly the linesman that was killed was the same one that got hit by a rock on the first turn against Shakey and then got the MotM award.

Funko
08-03-2010, 22:05:09
Turn 4 or 5 or so my Witch Elf who'd been knocked down and fouled brilliantly jumps up, makes a valiant solo dash round the back of his cage, smashes his ball carrier and the ball ends up behind my lines. I pick up the ball pass it to a blitzer who eventually scores. 1-0

Funko
08-03-2010, 22:10:23
The rest of that half is a bit of a mess. I end up having a couple of players knocked out. End the turn with 7 men on the pitch I think and he scores right at the end of the half.

Second half I get 2 more injuries. 2 more KOs and eventually he gets the ball off me through sheer weight of numbers (and yet another time when I fail to press blitz with my ball carrier who had a chance to get into the end zone, a bit desperate though, needed a block, 2 dodges and 2 sprints with no re-rolls... it was desperate at that point). He gets down the field where he is able to hold off to turn 16 before scoring. Fist wins 2-1. My final butchers bill, 1 dead, 3 injured, 4 KO.

On the plus side I end up getting a massive $20k after the game. :beer: After 3 games I have the 50k for a much needed apothecary, probably won't get another injury!

Beta1
08-03-2010, 22:48:05
Beta-1 2:0 Mobius

Typical chaos game, cage and drove first half with only 1 moment where i dropped the ball. 2nd half kicked half mobius's players into touch and then scored.

Mobius lost 2 injured (and another saved by an apoc), 1 fouled off in last turn, 4 in the crowd, several KOs (mostly caused by him rather than me) and only had 5 players standing by T16.

Much more fun than chasing elves around the park!

The Greensox remain unbeaten at the top, The Blockers and Wererats only a point behind after good second wins. The Wererats have racked up 3 kills in 3 games and a massive 8 casualties for, with only 2 against. They are blocking monsters. We've never seen rats live this long.

Sin City Bengals miserable season continues with another defeat and the fans are beginning to bay for the Coach's head. They want it to be used as the ball in the next game.

In round 4 we have the purists favourite game of the year with the Elf Derby. Traditionally Verliezers don't care how they finish in the table as long as they win that one, which is lucky considering how they've performed so far. They face a massive game to save their season.

The Rotten Wererats have been teaching the rest of the league how to block. Now they get to try their luck against the Blockers. The Elf derby may be lauded by some, but this potential carnage fest is the match to watch for the majority. Neither team can afford to lose if they want to keep their title hopes alive.

The Dubious Corsets, the orc world's campest team, aren't out of the title hunt either. Depending on other results a win at the pointless Bengals could put them right back into the hunt at the top of the table going into the last round.

What were the casualties for your game Beta? Doesn't sound like any of them due to blocking?

not sure - i lost count. Mobius KOed quite a few of his own players.

As for the last turn foul - we had the get the ref event and I had four players around a grounded player on the last turn. Seemed rude not to!

what else do you expect from a chaos team?

The Blockers don't have a single player with block on their whole team. Weaklings.

No but i have four players with strength 4, one with guard and one with mighty blow and every player on my team has strength 4 when blitzing.

I don't think I've lost a punch up that block would have saved so far.

Looking forward to seeing my mighty blow CW in action against some rats.

I looked up the match report to get the CAS. 2-0 to you. I also moved the gameweek on.

Oh and I was going to collate some player stats, top scorers, most running yards, most casualties caused etc. But my connection kept crapping out. Only managed to do the Greensox. Might try that again at the weekend. Unless someone else fancies doing it. Annoyingly you seem to have to go in team by team to get the stats.

Yeah yeah, yadda yadda, and I have a linerat with kicking so watch out for bruised nuts :p

I am the bashy team!

Any preference when to play?

:beer: One of your dancers has 3 TDs, will be hard to beat. Most teams haven't got many more than that.

Long Names giving me gyp.

Anyway the above is a snapshot of the best players on each team with stats reaching the noteworthy level. So several players with only 1 td and few rushing yards, or 1 cas but no ko, etc. missed the cut.

Funko
10-03-2010, 13:21:09
Excellent.

Are Beta's players really called #1 to #10?

Funko
10-03-2010, 13:22:27
Nice to see Lanlil appearing in all three tables. A real all rounder. He'll probably die next game.

Funko
10-03-2010, 13:25:10
I was assuming he was a runner, but with a casualty and 2 KOs it could be one of the blitzers...

Pretty much, one TD I scored with a thrower who didn't level either :D

IIRC they are called either Jim or Bob depending if ther are cw or not

It'd be nice if that was the result of some exciting "Total Bloodbowl" strategy rather than desperate passes out of trouble after the runners get hammered.

I notice how Chris Crocker is living up to his (real Bengals) name. Also interesting how the hate for Chad Ochocinco has migrated from the NFL to the CGL...:lol:

None of my players have leveled up yet - two of the more promising ones are now dead.:(
