Looking for a Blood Bowl Player
« on: March 03, 2023, 09:31:58 am »

Hey all - the other forum that I'm an active member of (Ars Technica) is putting together a FUMBBL Blood Bowl tournament. Unfortunately, we've only been able to scrape together 7 players. We'd love to have (at least) 8 players, so that we don't end up with a team having to take a bye against an empty slot.

Tournament will operate on a round-robin, where everyone gets to play every other team at least once.
Games will take place weekly. All teams must be new for the tournament.

Current teams:
Chaos Renegade
Skaven
Amazon
Ogre
Necromantic Horror
Orc
Chaos Dwarf

It's a pretty bashy lineup, so I'd probably recommend against halflings, snotlings, or goblins. Note that, although it happened to work out that all the teams are currently unique, there's no rule against doubling up if your favorite happens to be already taken.

So yeah, if we could get 1, 3, or 5 more players, that'd be great!

Well, we'd love to have you - the tournament has only just started, and, as I understand it, your team would kick out the placeholder team.

If you're interested, either contact the tournament leader directly: Nekojin

Or post your team on the Ars thread and ask to be invited.

Looks like you already got your eighth.  Good luck!

And now, Lord Euchre (of) Jack shall fight for the Honor of B12. And several of you have been conscripted into service!

God speed and spray some blood, EuchreJack. Love me some bloodbowl but the time commitment is too high.

Considering how long it is taking just to upload the player photos, I can relate!

But we're 73% complete!

The three remaining photos are awaiting their screening process.  I guess they don't want a team of dicks...

Looks like they rejected my avatar with the Ukrainian flag after the third time trying to get the image to fit.  Let's see if it goes through the fourth time...

Decent game. I won, I killed someone. You n00bs helped.  :P

Unsure if I'll get to play this team again: The technical difficulties that forced me to recreate the team have resurfaced.  Mod is nice to gift me upgraded, but they're a cursed upgrade as it seems to lock the team out of progression. Oh well. Yay fixed!

New team page

Slightly longer recap:
I crushed a Gnoblar into fine paste.
I generously let Il Palazzo carry the ball into the endzone.
Vector gets to wear a cool eyepatch during her one-game vacation that they earned for helping me crush the Gnoblar.

Looks like it was well-played. Quite a bit of spp across the board!

And only some of it is outright cheating balancing

Given your performance against Civbat, I think you could've probably done just as well - if not better - if you'd actually played those first two games (would have been against a Necromantic and Orc team) than the 1 TD 1 MVP that you were awarded to catch you up.

Looking forward to playing you Week 5!

After a crushing defeat on Week 4, Bay 12 Champions are proud to announce a win on Week 5 against AlStar's Chaotic Apostates!

AlStar was so impressed with the performance of Bay 12 Champions that his team killed TricMagic!  The fans were so delighted they donated enough for two replacement players!  Rumor has it the money instead went to bribe Toady One into bestowing another reroll.

Max & Il Palazzo learned to Guard against Chaos!
Vector learned to be overall more Agile!

Scoops Novel was utterly incompetent, fumbled a lot, and was not on the ball. He also failed to pick up the ball a couple times.

That's it for this week, sports fans!  Next week: More Bloodbowl!

Week 6 results: I'm not exactly sure what happened this time.
Drank a lot of Bloodweiser, Threw a lot of bombs, Ate a lot of Ratburgers, scored twice.
Good game.

So...they ended up with 3 casualties but you only caused one? Sounds like a great game, Bob!
