NUL Season 32 / Re: Season 32 Finals!
« on: January 06, 2019, 03:23:25 PM »
Grats to both finalists also from me!

And thanks for taking care of the creation of the finals league, Kvasilad. I'm currently on vacation trip and had such busy days before the trip, that I forgot to note about my absence. Good thing you're around, this little league of ours is running smooth at the moment and we've got you and your excellent match reporter to thank for that. So thanks again mate.

On my absence, will be back on the 16th and fully operational a day or two later depending on jet lag.

This is it, everybody is waiting for another match report from a high-scoring game between two Undead teams, just like last week! Well...

If my game last week was a TD bonanza, this was a pure undead slugfest. Meaning, both teams took their sweet time to score while bashing the other side to bits. Stup...born ones succeeded in the latter better, scoring bunch of injuries and deaths but as Napoleon's necromancer was sharp as a Harvard educated razor-edged tack, only one MNG slipped into casualty box. Stup...born ones scored easy on the last turn after extremly lucky armor+injury bashing. Astronauts on the other hand had to rely on their elf sprinter (deceased) to make the equalizer with some showy dodging on the last turn of the Khemri side.
Extremly nice and friendly match, well played from Napoleon. Thanks again for the game, mate!

I am free on the 29th, so would 16:00 work for you?

Tomorrow, Saturday the 29th, at 16:00 is an excellent time for some year end Blood Bowl. See you then!

Season 32 is on it's last legs, so lets start the discussion on S33!

Season 33 will be Unlimited TV, so any team that's played just in NUL leagues is eligeble to take part.

I'm in with my stress relief team of Stup...born Undeads. For future reference, I'll be away on vacation from January 3rd to 16th, if the league starts before/during that time and my game is holding up the league, I'm okay with admining it. But we'll see to that when the time comes.

Official Stuff
- This is the 3rd season from the set of 3, so this will be TV UNlimited. Just to remind everybody, the rules for the TV value stuff are HERE.
- Only new teams or teams that have been played in previous NUL-leagues.
- 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! This is your chance for glory by starting every game with treasure trove of incentives! Start a goblin team and start practicing how to spend 1 000 000 gold pieces in incentives in three minutes!

1. Read the introductory thread with the explanation on league structure HERE.
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 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 know the drill, just tell us what team you'll be taking to the trophy hunt.

1. J-Reedy - Too Stup...born to Die (Undead)
2. kvasilad - Radio Rangers (Lizardmen)
3. Gnaarkill - Butcher's Bay Pirates (Goblins)
4. Lars - Punk Rock Rotters (Nurgle)
5. Saitani - ?
6. Barmution - ?
7. hakos - Money, Money, Money (Norse)
8. NapoleonBlown-apart - Khemri Astronauts (Khemri)

Okay, MD 6 seems to be done, so time to move on the final deciding day! B3 are already in the finals and a draw will take the Hashuts there but a loss for the Chaos Dwarfs could take the Lizardfolk to the finals. Exciting times!

Napoleon, I'm visiting my parents for Christmas and leaving on the weekend, so I really don't have any time to play until after I get back home 27th. But I should have the whole day free on the 27th. The weekend of 29th and 30th should also be free, so just suggest a time on those days when you know about your schedule and I should be able to make it.

Just your average low-scoring bash-fest between two undead sides, nothing to see here folks... wait... what?

Friendly affair, but with one nasty death on a Nurgle warrior. Unusual amount of TDs. The Stup...born ones started on an offence and got the ball in fast when a rotter was sent off by the ref and a lane opened up to the goal. Good defence forced the Undead to score fast. Pestigor botched the pickup on Punks offence which gave the Undead opportunity to put pressure on the ball and take it away with a lucky injury and Nurgle Beast being reaaaallly stupid. Fast 2-0 lead and two turns on the clock for the Punks but then the crowd rioted and the Nurgle side had 1 more turn. This surprised the Undead who were in a prevent formation so Punks got in deep fast. The half ended with a Pestigor blitzing his way into the endzone for the 2-1 goal.
Second half started with the Punks undermanned but a KO later numbers were even. Nurgle side fainted an attack on the right flank and Undead overcommited their defence there. Two Pestigors and a Warrior took advantage of this and switched sides to the left. Undead did what they could, but couldn't prevent a brave Pestigor who saw that the Undead wizard was already looking at the sky for a suitable cloud to call a lightning bolt from and thus the ball-carrying Pestigor gave it all he got and scored the equilizer. Plenty of turns left for the Undead to attack, so the final drive was the most undeadly of all. A slow slog to the endzone with midfield bashing deciding the game when mr. Grey the Mummy deaded a Nurgle Warrior and firebolt stunned a bunch Punks threatening the ball-carrier.

This one was a real fun game, Lars played well but three double-skulls, both-downs on blockless and numerous 1s on Really stupid really made his job hard today. Thanks again for the game and good luck in the last one, Lars!

Bulletin Board / Trouble with login?
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:26:17 PM »
Has anyone else run into problem while logging in using the id and password fields at the top left? I seem to get login error consistently when using them.
If you have trouble with that login, use the login link above these fields (in the "Login or register" sentence).

Boards of the old leagues have been moved into Archives.

Bulletin Board / Changing the order of the posts + hiding boards
« on: December 11, 2018, 07:00:34 PM »
You can change the order of the posts inside boards from oldest to newest or newest to oldest as follows:
1. Click Profile from the top menu bar.
2. Hover over "Modify Profile" on top of Summary headline and click "Look and Layout".
3. Remove checkmark from "Show most recent posts at the top" to show messages from oldest to newest.
4. Click "Change Profile" on bottom right.

I've added an option for users to hide boards. You can choose to ignore boards as follows:
1. Click Profile from the top menu bar.
2. Hover over "Modify Profile" on top of Summary headline and click "Ignore Boards Options".
3. Choose the checkboxes of those boards you don't want to see in the Forum list. The text box under "Profile" tells you what ignoring a board does.
4. Click "Change Profile" on bottom right.

I'd really like to move the Info Center on the bottom to the top, so everyone would see new posts first thing they visit the forum, but I didn't find a suitable mod for that with a quick search. I'll look into it when I have some more time.

The forum has been changed to light on dark. If you prefer black text on white background, let me know and I can set it so that every user can select a theme of their own.

Add: Hmm, the ignoring boards option doesn't seem to hide them from the main view as I had hoped. I'll probably move the boards of the old Leagues to the Archive at some point so that the forum doesn't look so crowded.

Any ideas about modifications you would like to see are welcome, I'm a bit set on my ways, so I really miss the old layout, but you might have other ideas, so let me know.

Hi Lars, time for us to see how many of our players change sides in middle of the game. I'm a bit busy at the moment, so the only available CET start time for me would be:
- Saturday any time after 15.00

If that suits you, sir, that would be splendid. If not, suggest a time next week on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and I should be able to make it work.

Bulletin Board / Re: Upgrade on the 8th and 9th, downtime likely
« on: December 08, 2018, 06:36:58 PM »
Seems that there are issues with the old "Football" theme that was designed for the 1.1 version of the Forum. Current version 2.0.15 doesn't seem to support that layout very well. I've switched the theme to the basic layout and will check if we can get the old layout back somehow.

If anyone is interested, here are the verified themes for our current forum version, it may be that we'll have to go with one of these:

J-Reedy out for the day, will work on the forum more on tomorrow on Sunday the 9th.

Bulletin Board / Upgrade done, working on forum appearance
« on: December 08, 2018, 05:49:04 PM »
Upgrade to latest version done, php support should now be OK. Forum looking bit wonky, will try to fix all as it was.

As the subject says, I'm upgrading the forum this weekend, so the forum may will go down. Hopefully it won't stay down too long...

If this is not the most nuffled armor+injury roll match I've ever taken part in, it's guaranteed top 3. I was breaking chdorf armor left and right. I was actually relieved that Saitani managed to score the equilizer even though lightning bolt brought down the centaur headed for the goal. Was pretty close to scoring the go-ahead goal, but my only failed block of the game and the resulted turnover prevented any serious threats to the draw. Sorry again for the nuffling, Saitani, and better luck in the rest.
