Yah, it sounds like minecraft with content, you have obviously missed the point, people dont like content, they like different coloured blocks.
Seems to work fine with my copy. As soon as I loaded the human caravan came by and the world burst into fire.

I'm interested in playing. If we have unique teams, I'd be interested in playing Skaven. I'd be flexible as to the structure of the league. I don't have a steam account. I'm in Eastern US timezone.

I'll be playing Norse or Dwarves. If someone else wants one of the two, I'll probably go with the other.

Suppose I should probably chime in, too.

I'll be playing Vampire, would prefer old teams allowed, would prefer non-unique teams, and a two leg playoff format.

I'm interested in joining up.

If we're doing new teams, I'll call... heck, let's go with Ogres. Why not?

As far as preferences go:

I'm neutral on the new/old teams.
I like unique races.
Have no opinion on playoff format.

I'm in.

My preferences are:

Not unique teams but not having loads of the same team.

New teams.

Basic inducements (because of the recharging wizard).

Groups for the regular season if there's enough players and two leg play-offs.

edit: For now I'll go with...er...Elf, if we have non-unique teams I'd prefer skaven.

Wouldn't it be easier to just say "don't take cheering fans?"

I like most of the other extended inducements, and would be sad to see them all removed because of one overpowered combo.

Oh yay, honor system for me to referee. :P

I think the extra reroll stealing would be pretty useful if we allowed old teams, but otherwise the added inducements aren't terribly fascinating. It's not really something I'm super knowledgeable about though, so I'm deferring to the rest of you on this particular aspect.

Edit: Would a compromise of no more than 2 teams of the same race be acceptable? I must admit I don't really understand the allure of unique teams, so I'll need someone else to explain it. If it's just to stop everyone from picking dwarves, then would a limit of 2 be much worse than 1? I guess if it's a thematic sort of thing then 2 isn't any better than 8.

Any thoughts?

Allow Old Teams: Yea
Multiple Teams of Same Race: Nay
Number of Playoff Teams: Abstain pending headcount.
Two-Leg: Abstain. I can see pros and cons, in terms of gameplay and fun, in both scenarios.
Inducements: Abstain due to lack of having played with the weirder inducements.
Pools: Abstain pending headcount.
Race: Either orc/Chaos if we allow in previous teams, or I'll wait and pick something from leftovers after everyone else makes their choices. Maybe halflings... I think the challenge of building a successful halfling team would be fun.

I must admit I don't really understand the allure of unique teams, so I'll need someone else to explain it.

For me, at least, there are two major factors.

One is what I think of as "The Olympic" argument. With 1 team/race, it feels like that team is *the* representative of its race, and I find that alluring. I feel more special when I'm the only Orc player. Also, if there's only one orc team in the league, I don't have to think "wait, are you the one with the AGL 4 thrower, or the one with the STR 5 Black Orc".

The other factor for me is the "Freshness" argument. I recognize no two coaches will play a given race the same way, but facing two or three Skaven teams is going to feel a lot less varied and interesting to me than playing, say, a Skaven and a Wood Elf team.

Thanks for your thoughts, ndkid.

I don't think the BB league thing is powerful enough to do much. It's just number of players -> number of groups -> 1 game or 2 per player, I believe.

I'd prefer old teams. And if that's the case, I'll take lizardmen once more.

Shame that my other two choices have already been taken, though - pro elves and skaven. So I wouldn't mind multiple teams, either.

... If all else fails, I'll take a stab at Nurgle. Although assume the preference is the order given...

If we go with unique teams you can take the pro-elves, I'll switch to dark elf.
