I don't know if I need to move the game week on after you've played but if so I'll try and do that anyway so the rest of you can start week 2.

Thumbs up

Just wallowing in my great victory. Mmm yes. Being the fact that I didn't: " FUCK THE WHOLE LEAGUE UP! " Oh yes. They can never take it away from me. You know what I mean? stretches back, pushes chair on to back legs - sighs relaxedly - That I didn't do that. saa-tis-factioningmmmn...

Well the rerun was literally a rerun - 2-0 to me.

Another game that had everything - including a classic GFI flat on the face in the scoring zone moment from me, and a PASS!!! Yes you heard it right there was a pass in a Chaos v dwarf match and someone actually cuaght it! I forget who - thats not important - because someone actually passed the ball!!!

Basically my legs were longer than KGs.

Not well played by me. Beta certainly deserved the win, especially as he had to beat me twice.

Nothing worked, no decent plan, no effective play, absolute rubbish and thoroughly depressing throughout. I have some serious frustration to take out on Fist's skaven

Beta's Blockers go in the book of grudges:

btw whether or not the league has to be moved on, and i don't think it does, we can play the game anyway and just keep the appropriate file until we can submit it.

There's no function to move the league on so I assume we continue as before.

I don't see what's amusing about the table of team winnings.

X-Rats 0 - 1 Karak-Drak Frostbeards

Frostbeards coach 'King' Ghidra seemed satisfied after his team finally notched their first win of the campaign, with his team playing the kind of Blood Bowl he would have expected from the beginning of the season. The match itself was the second attempt by the two teams to complete the fixture, the first being interrupted at half time by the eruption of a minor border war between the two factions.

Receiving the kick-off, the dwarves began a crunching drive but became enmeshed in a mid-field melee that forced star runner Burlak Blasthammer to make several changes of direction to find a hole. Finally with several x-rats knocked off the park Blasthammer thundered down the sideline for the score as the half ended. 1-0.

As the second half began, the x-rats forced an early KO that seemed to give them an early advantage, but slippery hands from their thrower set their offence back, and the Frostbeards began to inflict casualties to turn the tide against the hapless rats. As the second half drew to a close, the rats' numbers were thinning fast, but they still had one final break to threaten an equaliser. The Frostbeards desperately attempted to block the rats route to goal, and in one final heroic play, blitzer Lolki intercepted the x-rats' final pass to end a miserable day for their thrower and a solid victory for the Frostbeards.

Ghidra was sparse with his compliments after the match, but will have been pleased to see the first points of the season on the board, and the five casualties the team notched up in the process. 'There is still plenty to work on, but at times they looked like a real Blood Bowl team out there. Hopefully that performance will give the other teams something to think about.'

Not much to add to KG's fine report. First half the rats tried to contain the slow but unstoppable dwarven advance, in the end it was Cyclops falling down while stretching the defense who left open the path to end zone but the dwarves already had numerical advantage and we felt the TD was inevitable at that point.

We then had 2 turns to try and get level but the dwarves defended well and deep, Professor X was unable to complete a short pass (actually it was Rogue missing the catch on a perfect pass but we like to blame our thrower) and when the ball hit the ground the first half ended with the Frostbeards up 1-0.

The start of the second half again saw Professor X bad play as he failed to pick up the ball..
We were slowed down by that and unable to reach and form a cage in the middle so we retrated back but KG played smart and didn't take the bait. He stayed put, pressuring the receivers and controlling the midfield while piling up injuries instead of pursuing the ball carrier.

A run to the left was quickly followed by a rapid change of the front of attack trying to take advantage of our long, quick legs. Professor X found himself with the ball near the right sideline in Frostbeard territory but his bodyguard was knocked down and two dwarves were able to go for it and get in contact with him.

At that point he had the choice to blitz out of the tackle zone and then dodge into a TD or trying a medium pass to tie the score.

Both high risk options but was last turn and he had to try, he went for the second option and as Shadowcat made herself free in the endzone ready to catch the pass he managed to make his pass intercepted by a dwarf! Oh, the shame.
That ended a highly entertaining game.

Casualties have been severe and we will take some time to recover from this carnage.

No more gambling for Gambit who got brutally murdered on the pitch. Bottom line: risk taking rat = dead rat.



RIP Gambit, you will be remembered for doing absolutly nothing but being punched around the line of scrimmage like a rag doll, you will be sorely missed nonetheless.

Cyclops and Rogue will also miss the next game due to injuries (the latter actually got saved from a much worse fate thanks to the apothecary quick intervention).

P.S.
I rolled a double levelling up a Stormvermin and usually I grab Dodge in that situation but.. well the Stormvermin in question was Wolverine and I really couldn't pass on the (roleplay) opportunity of giving him claws Yes, I'm a nerd.

Sadly this evening's match between the blockers and raging storm has been postponed.

A serious infestation of squigs has rendered the pitch unplayable.

On the brightside the blockers are enjoying an impromptu squig BBQ.

Raging Storms 0 - 2 beta's Blockers

keeping up the record of 1 goal every half and being the only chaos team in history not to kill anyone!

game was all but decided by a pitch invasion at the start which left me able to receive and walk through what was left of the humies defence. I then camped and bashed until 2 KOs, scored and watched 1 stand up imediately and 1 come back 1 turn later at the half time. 2nd half shakey's QB failed to pick up the ball repeatedly allowing me time to beat his team up again. Eventually superior strength resulted in a block on the ball carrier - both down but shakey never got the chance to get the ball back - A CW picked up and trundled up to score the second.

Annoyingly despite scoring 4 TDs in 2 games and a CAS I have no players levelled up. Really missing having a frenzier and a extra hands BM.

still got enough gold for a spare BM and an Apoc. Lucky since i have orcs next.

MOBIUS' internet is down (apparently a Virgin Media problem completely out in his area). Doesn't look like we'll get to play today, I've got my wine course tomorrow and he's off on holiday on Thursday I think?

I'm aware we're holding things up. Sorry. The following two games could still go ahead though? If you just store the game files somewhere to upload after we've played.

Karak-Drak Frostbeards - the tree muggers
X-Rats - Raging Storms
