Title: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 03, 2016, 12:22:36 PM
OK, folks. Let's try to get this Blood Bowl 2 thing started. Sorry for lack of attention on my part, helluva summer on RL front.

As there are no old teams, let's discuss about the league structure in the new client during the season when everybody gets more acquinted with the game. We could maybe start a feeder league where coaches can play new teams against other new teams and teams from this league can be brought along to later seasons. But that's for later, let's just get this thing started.

---------------------------------------
Official Stuff
---------------------------------------
- This is the 1st official season in Blood Bowl 2, so only new & fresh teams.
- League will be played with normal 1 match week per 1 real-time week pace.
- As last season, we'll be enforcing the rule that if you don't show up to play a game on agreed time AND you don't tell about your absense at least an hour before the match in the forum, you'll forfeit the game with an 2-0 admin loss to your opponent who is waiting for you.
- ALL NEW COACHES ARE WELCOME!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR NEW COACHES:
1. Read the introductory thread with the explanation on league structure HERE (http://norscaleague.com/index.php?topic=3.0).
2: Create an account on this forum. Note that due to high activity from spam-bots, admins have to approve your account before you can post here. This shouldn't take longer than a day or two.
3: Post a reply in this thread that you want to join.
4: Read the "Essential rules" section HERE (http://norscaleague.com/index.php?topic=65.0) and post a reply in that thread that you have understood the rules.
5: The admin team will add you on the participant list in this post.

OLD Coaches now the drill, just tell what team you'll be taking to the trophy hunt.
---------------------------------------

SIGNED UP:
1. J-Reedy - some team
2. Kvasilad - Undead
3. Equilibri - Necromantic
4. Barmution - Norse
5. Snyto -
6. Lars - Skaven
7. Gnaarkill -

I'm definitely in. So you're saying season 0 didn't count? I still hope to pick up my Bretonnians again some time in later rounds, but I absolutely understand that it's only new teams this round :)

I think I'll go for either Undead or Norse, neither of which I've ever tried before. Leaning towards Undead.

I'm in, have not decided which team yet, but will probably play a "tier 1" team to prove that it is I that suck and not my team.

Will try to get Gurgeh to rejoin as well. He sounded positive.

Got released a couple of days ago, and I just love the mix of bashing and high movement!

Who will set up the league or is everything already set up?
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 14, 2016, 10:43:49 AM
I'll try to get the league started tonight unless Mr B beats me to it.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: kvasilad on September 14, 2016, 11:48:21 AM
If my understanding of the structure is correct, the league is already set up ("NUL Feeders"), but we need a new "competition" representing our new season. For now, the league NUL Feeders have had one competition, "NUL - Ignition!" which in the forums is what we've referred to as "Season 0".
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Gnaarkill on September 14, 2016, 04:02:15 PM
Oh, yea you are right Kvasi!
So basically those of us that played in "Season 0/NUL - Ignition!" should already be signed in to the league. But we still have to apply for the competition when that is set.
The rest of us that did not play in "Season 0/NUL - Ignition!" have to apply to both the league and the competition :)

I think that is how it will work :)
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 14, 2016, 07:57:34 PM
OK, seems I didn't have nescessary rights for creating new competitions into the "old" Nul feeders League. So I've created a new League called "NUL Championship". Bantha, you have been added as administrator of this league.

I've invited Kvasi's Playful Dead, all other players please apply for the "NUL Season 24" competition in "NUL Championship".

Post by: Mr B on September 17, 2016, 09:52:15 AM
I'm in as ADMIN :)
Will have a eye on you guys!

Also try to see who else can have an interest of our dear community.
Sorry to drop out there for a bit but when nuffle farts that bad... you just have to take your nose out  :P ::)
I'll see how I can help.

Stadiums On?
Age is of no important if we continue how we played before.
How about this transfer stuff?

Gurkha Legion reporting for duty in NUL Championship.

Have applied for a ticket.

Did not manage to convince Gurgeh to join. :(

Coach name is same as before, i.e. hakos

/Hakos

EDIT: I have no idea what stadiums does, but it sounds cool so I'm for it. :) Transfers seems boring

There are some selection..
Gives both teams some bonuses...
Like a bribe for free.. A wiz for free.. Hard ground +1 on armour if failed a gfi.. Or-1 if you have soft ground..
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: kvasilad on September 18, 2016, 06:44:55 PM
I think my vote is against both stadiums and transfers. Maybe try some of it later, but for now I'd say we'll just try the most normal approach.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 19, 2016, 08:33:16 AM
Sent a ticket to Barm, Equi and Hakos last night.

Bantha, where can you change the stadium settings? I tried looking for those, but couldn't find them. The new interface is still bit foreign to me.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Lars on September 19, 2016, 09:37:48 AM
vote against stadiums if we are not to change the system so both teams will get the benefit of a home stadium since the choices of the stadium could make or break a teams tactics and in that case every team should meet the others in the same circumstances.

/Lars
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Barmution on September 19, 2016, 01:17:01 PM
I'm voting against stadiums too as it doesn't seem very balanced to me. If you don't find it in the options JR, then I suggest we all just don't buy anything as a gentleman's agreement.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: hakos on September 19, 2016, 01:41:26 PM
I think the stadium look interesting, but I have no problem not using them.

Post by: Barmution on September 19, 2016, 02:49:21 PM
I can't recall wether the stadium counts vs TV. If it does then I'm actually for using them since that's a very steep price to pay for the effect it gives. I'm all for giving your opponents a way to handicap themselves :P
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Lars on September 19, 2016, 03:01:02 PM
it does not count towards tv it's a way to dump money to get less tv.

Hmm not sure.
I'll look upon it later tonight

Post by: Mr B on September 19, 2016, 08:39:04 PM
I could not find any info regarding how to turn on/off anything else than Age.

And I created some fake test tournaments.. just to try..
And when I removed one, it asked it I were to remove it with all history... sure but... it ment the entire NUL-Ignition.. which I did not understand..

So that was removed... that is how bad the UI is.
So, JR, never becareful when removing Test round robins, test knockout, or test ladders.. Zzzz Zorry guys.

Ok, so are all 8 teams in? We're about ready to start this thing, no?
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 23, 2016, 04:01:44 PM
Kvasilad (undead), Lars (skaven), J-Reedy (bretonnian), Barmution (norse) and Hakos (orc) are in.
Equilibri (necromantic) has been sent ticket, but he has not yet used it.
We're missing Gnaarkill and Snyto. I'll send them a reminder pm through forum.

Just in case, you apply to the league like this in BB2:
From main page -> Play in a league > Join a League > Multiplayer > search for "NUL" > Register in NUL Championship > NUL Season 24.

This will send a ticket request which an admin has to approve. When approved, you are sent a ticket and you have to then use it to complete the registration.

Hi guys
I've been a bit out of the loop lately as you've probably noticed. After some consideration I'm afraid I have to pull my participation from this round of BB 2 due to a lot of unexpected activity around my new job and upcoming planning for this winter's Dreamhack. Time and energy supplies doesn't add up currently.
I hope to be able to get back for S25 though!

Ah, using the ticket! I knew it was something I was supposed to do! :D

Going in tonight and using the h..l out of that ticket!
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Gnaarkill on September 27, 2016, 05:49:44 PM
Im creating a team right now!
Sorry for the absence, had to prioritize life, the science of women is a mystery... 8).
But from now on it will be smooth running!

EDIT:
And applied! :D

Aw :( We'll miss you, Snyto. Crossing fingers for getting you back for S25, mate.

Post by: kvasilad on September 27, 2016, 07:36:26 PM
Really hope to see you back next season Snyto, you're a great guy to have in the league :)

So... that means we're down to 7... do we play with a WO team, or do we try to find an 8th player? Sure we can't convince you to step in after all Mr. B? :)
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 28, 2016, 08:45:34 PM
Ticket sent to Gnaarkill.

Let's try to go for the 8th player, *all eyes turn to Bantha*, how about it mr. B?

If we don't get an eight player by start of next week, let's put in a placeholder team and admin results for that team.

Post by: equilibri on September 30, 2016, 11:22:17 AM
I agree with Lars. No need to pressure anyone to join.
We can play with a "dummy-team" instead. Just nice to get going as quick as possible! :D
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Barmution on September 30, 2016, 02:19:02 PM
Indeed, let's start kicking each other's shins and stuff!
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on September 30, 2016, 05:27:06 PM
Mr. B, can you put in a dummy team? I assume player already participating in competition can't have two teams in competition.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Gnaarkill on October 04, 2016, 10:17:18 AM
Ok Guys!
So I applied with my ticket yesterday evening.
I guess we are ready to kick this thing off!? :D
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: J-Reedy on October 04, 2016, 12:26:23 PM
Still need one dummy team. Tested it and same coach can't have more than one team in, so none of the players can put dummy in. Sent mr. B pm.
Title: Re: Season 24 - BB II premiere - signup
Post by: Mr B on October 04, 2016, 07:39:28 PM
Yo..that I can do.. Setting it up in a hour or two.
