I have put a minimum and maximum price of 1000, I assume that's only starting price?! If not I'll do it again.

Ok,
as far as i can tell i've created a fresh 1000 pt team and applied to join the league.
I guess it must be starting price only, cos after i've been splattered , team value will be below the 1000 pt mark.

Right, I tried to join but it said: "You cannot make an application for this team while it is registered in a public league"

See earlier in the thread for instructions for how to join the league, I can't remember the exact steps but basically a new team is automatically entered in the public league, and can't be in two leagues at once so you have to quit the public league before you can join. With that team selected there should be a "quit league" option somewhere.

If you mean value there might be a problem, because i think that might mean if you don't spend exactly all of your 1m starting money you can't get in. Easy to test that though.

btw does anyone have any thoughts on what races they are going to enter? best to have a mix. i am not going to be dwarves because they are boring, and unless anyone wants them very badly i will probably be wood elves.

I played 3 games with dark elves last night (only against the AI). Won 2 drew 1

thoughts:

The new interface, speed and everything are massively improved. It's like a proper game not a beta now.
They've mixed up who you meet in the first tournament! Despite swearing they wouldn't. I had Dark Elves, Gobbos and Humans.
I like Dark Elves, but they are still brittle. Even against those three non bashy teams, controlled by mediocre AI I frequently had zs few as 5 players off the pitch. But being Elves they can still score with almost no-one on the pitch. Interesting progressions, especially for the runners. Hmm.
My first game involving goblins. They are either truly terrible or just truly terrible against Dark Elves or just way too hard for the AI to control or all three. Strolled to a 4-0 victory should have been more but for some terrible blocking luck. Why does the AI insist on regularly blitzing with big guys only to have them fail to act?
Humans bashed me off the pitch, which is worrying, they aren't exactly a bashy team?

I might play them anyway, they suit my style by which I mean, they have the agility to try and get me out of the kind of horrible situations I regularly find myself in due to poor planning.

I was keen on Orcs as well, have the team set up and everything. But I am also happy to play as something else - maybe even boring old humans...

I was trying to look for a 'quit league' option but couldn't find it for the life of me. Obviously I am blind. Will try again tonight.

Just make sure your team on the left and public league on the right are both selected and you'll get that quit league you're looking for

Dragon Age: Origin has been eating all my time this Christmas, what a game!

Er... dunno. I should log in and add people to the league. Had a FIFA tournament to prepare for and then got straight back into dragon age...

I'll endeavour to do it tonight.

Now 5-1-8, almost respectable. Still only 12 players on the team (i went wild and added a spare beastman), so the TV is still lean and i'm hoping for more matchups against bloated lazy bashers.

Now 6-2-8 ! Think that's the most games i've ever played with one BB team.

Had a wood elf player rage quit on me in the last game when they were 1-0 up

They scored on the second turn after a blitz from the kick off. Wardancers and catchers with skill-ups are impossible to stop in that scenario.

Anyway once i get the ball back and have a proper drive, i start to grind them into the dirt. By turn 5 they have 3 in the ko box and three in the cas box. The ragequit occurs after his wardancer makes a hilariously misjudged leap into my cage, and ends up getting seriously injured on a 2dice-against block. He quits, I laugh and process my many skill-ups

TV now at 1700. I still don't have anyone with claws

Claws is overrated - I like tentacles/tackle on my BM much more. Nothing like holding on to those annoying players who want to run around.
