If I had scored the TD I stupidly fucked up by blitzing the man into a dead end I'd need a 1-0 win to win the league.

2 blitzers both got 10s on level up, so I gave them both extra MA.

Dodge would have been funnier.

The only upside to this i can see is that funko's tv is high enough now that by throwing my otherwise useless cash into the inducements pot i think i can hire a star for our match

You kind of have to take the stat increase when it becomes available really... it's not just about the next game but the next season, I did consider getting guard or mighty blow for the guy who got a double though.

I feel a bit sorry for Illi, I had a few of these games last season with huge numbers of injuries. It's so unlucky, and it means there's nothing you can do to defend with so few players on the pitch.

Started a new thread for season 3.

I think we said at the beginning new players, replacement teams could come in for a new season as long as they were 1000 value. Can discuss it there.

Absolutely - no implied criticism. When you get stat increases you take them. Another skill each and they'll be like av8 wardancers.

My calendar is clear, so you pick a date. Let's do as we mused before and one of us come and visit the other. This Saturday would be good for me actually if you're free.

I'm definitely getting deja vu of my baptism of fire as humans last season - I can only imagine it would have been worse if I'd played Wood Elves!

The game is an entirely different beast against human players and I think I'm almost at a point where I'm competitive with everyone else - so I'm really looking forward to next season!

Absolutely. On all counts. Wood Elves and Humans are two very difficult to play for Newbies I think. As K_G said the other day Orcs are Easy mode in comparison.

I think reading the rulebook what part of what sparked a big change in your play?

Why do you think I changed to Orcs this season...

I may not mind losing too much, but I'm not a masochist - unless I decide to be Goblins next season...

Reading the rulebook definitely helped - just like one day I'll read the instructions to my new phone!

I was very much tempted to go Goblins myself for the mayhem factor, but i think you need to know every dirty trick in the book to make them work. The key thing is managing the secret weapons properly. With each one being ejected after a drive you have to time their deployment so carefully.

I'll let Illi speak for himself as to why it didn't work for him, but i think the key thing with W Elves is don't let yourself get blocked too much, and don't pass the ball just because you can. I'm pretty sure i played without a passer or a catcher at any point, and scored almost all my td's by just running it with the Wardancers. An MA8 Blodger is a nightmare for unskilled teams to stop.

Well the championship game is over. The Frostbeards reduced a 1350 TV team to 860, and ground out a 1-0 victory to win the league.

The crippled Ravens now have to lick their wounds and consider what to do next season. Their new Witch Elf cruelly killed on her opening game, along with Elzod Strongshot the blitzer. 3 players miss the next game, one with a -1MA from a smashed knee.

Karak-Drak Frostbeards 1 -0 Clar Karond Ravens

The Frostbeards took the title in brutal fashion, running over a Ravens team in what many observers considered a perfect game of Dwarven Blood Bowl.

The Frostbeards shut the Ravens out in the first half, breaking up their sole attempt at the goal-line with a crunching two-man block. Following that, the Frostbeards forced the game into a scrappy midfield melee in which the Ravens could muster no further threat. At half time, the score was 0-0, and the league title was heading to the X-Rats, though with no injuries for either team the second half seemed wide open.

Receiving the ball to begin the second half, the Frostbeards began a typically professional, bone-crunching drive, seeing Dark Elves flying into the injury box by the minute as the Dwarven pack made slow progress down the field. As the Raven flock thinned, the Frostbeards ferocity increased, with two Ravens crowing their last, and even the hardy Norscan fans winced as rookie Witch Elf Nara Catwarper was crushed to death by a six-man gang foul.

By the time Burlak Blasthammer crossed the line for the sixth time this season, and for what was to be the title-clinching touchdown, the Ravens were a broken team, barely able to escape the pitch as overjoyed Frostbeards fans stormed the field to celebrate a League win that had seemed so unlikely only weeks before.

Frostbeards coach 'King' Ghidra was full of praise for his young team's achievement:
'The character they've shown has been magnificent. We've scored eight touchdowns and only conceded one since that opening day defeat. That's Championship form in any league in the Old World.'

But even as he celebrated the win, Ghidra did little to quell speculation that he may be preparing to jump ship for the second season in a row:
'When King Hargrim invited me to manage the Frostbeards, the challenge was to take the talent and passion here and try and turn it into a competitive Blood Bowl team. Probably by winning the title we've all exceeded our expectations. How much more there is to do here now, I don't know.'
