As to the matchday, Hakos, time to see if my guys are too stup...born to dance along to the whims of your quick ones. I'm bit limited this week due to hockey match and Fallout boardgaming, but I can offer you these CET start times:
- Wednesday 18-20
- Saturday any time after 10
- Sunday probably any time before 14

Wednesday is not possible due to poker night
Saturday is not possible due to my fathers 70-year birthday

Sunday, starting at 10-11 should be fine.

And the insane, odds defying, match results continue to pour in for the second day.

+12 in luck difference to the elves equal a 4-0 victory. Main reason being the 2 (!) Blitz kick off events for the elves.

No permanent damages for the elves versus one dead Nurgle Warrior for the punk kids.

Another goal was caused by the audience stoning/stunning 4 nurgles making it difficult to create and defend the normal cage. Guess the punk band would have preferred the customary rotten tomatoes from the audience in this case.

Sorry for the bad luck Lars, hope it get's better soon.

THE LEGENDS OF BLOOD BOWL, ISSUE NUL32:2

What a start of the season. Two teams got their revenge, two teams got massacred and two teams got a spell of severe bad luck to the dismay of the coaches but to the delight of the ecstatic spectators. Nothing beats seeing players fail in spectacular ways.

For day 2 winners will meet winners and losers will meet losers so most likely only two teams will be undefeated after this day. It also looks to be an inducement party so the real winners might be the audience who will be able to watch famous star players, magicians and, perhaps most popular of all, the gorgeous Budweiser Babes.

 
Match 1 – Radio Rangers (Lizardmen) vs Too Stup…born to Die (Undead)
The newcomers seemed very lively for being a dead team and won their first match. However, their second match will be a real test with more than 400 in TV diff. On the other hand, that makes it possible for Count Luthor or Ramtut III to make a special appearance. Or will they go for a more diversified approach? Any way, Radio Rangers have a well rounded, side stepping, team that have a good chance to annoy the undead rookies.


Match 2 – Khemri Astronauts (Khemri) vs My Little Hashut (Chaos Dwarfs)
In the second match we have more winner on winner action. With a TV diff of just 170 this is the most even match today. One team is slow and hard to hurt while the other team,… wait…, they have the same description, what is this? Do we have a mirror match? How about this: tall, thin and bony top model material versus the small, bulky, winner of last year’s best beard competition. Ok, now that we have the differences clear for us we predict that the team with the thickest skulls will win.


Match 3 – Butchers’s Bay Pirates (Goblin) vs Ball, Bounce and Beyond (Kislev)
Match 3 is the dream match for a stadium owner. Goblins are famous for their capability to create splat moments in hilarious way while BBB will jump and awe as there is no tomorrow. And in addition to that, with a TV diff of over 700 we might even see Morg n’Thorg together with Ripper on the field today. 3 trolls, Morg, a fanatic and chainsaw looks like a recipe that will give the goblins a fighting chance versus the tactically well trained BBB.


Match 4 – Nimble Feets (Wood Elves) vs Punk Rock Rotters (Nurgle)
In our final match we see two loser teams. Last match played by these two teams set a NUL record for most lucky team, with a +19 luck the Nimble Feets could do anything they wanted and win 4-0. That will not happen this time. Nimble Feets got massacred last game and will play with 5 loners out of 11 total players. In addition to that, due to a contract with much fine writing they need to continue to field Tony Tango, the AG3 war dancer for at least two more matches. On the flip side, they might have a chance to avoid damage since both MB players on the Rotten team also need to rest. The TV diff is about 240, enough for a magician and perhaps some babes. Although we heard the stadium owner stating that he would pay the punk band if they do not bring Nurgle Babes to the match…

THE LEGENDS OF BLOOD BOWL, ISSUE NUL32:1
Time for another season of “The Legends” to entertain, confuse and perhaps, just perhaps, tell some true stories. Just to make the first day as exciting as possible, all matches have been setup according to team value. So anything can happen. We also see some interesting repeat matches from last season that are sure to bring some extra motivation for the teams. One repeat we will not see is Dis Thing of Ours but instead we see another team rising from the dark caves, Too stup…born to Die.


Match 1 – Too Stup…born to Die vs Butchers’s Bay Pirates (Goblin)
TV 970 vs TV 1060. Here we have two teams that have never won a match, yet. We welcome Too Stup… to die again, in NUL season 32. Normally the pirate use all tricks they can muster, including inducements, without that we predict they will be confused and our newcomers might have a chance.


Match 2 – Khemri Astronauts (Khemri) vs Nimble Feets (Wood Elves)
TV 1290 vs TV 1370. Maximum agility versus minimum agility. High strength and 2*MB versus AV7. It is clear which team will do what. Or is it? It seems the elves have decided on a new tactic this season by hiring a new dancer, Locking Lenny. But he will be quite busy trying to keep those 4 strength 5 guys away from the elves. Will the elves dance in circles around their opponents or will they drop dead to the ground? Tune in via the brand new crystal ball interface to find out in real time.


Match 3 – Radio Rangers (Lizardmen) vs Punk Rock Rotters (Nurgle)
TV 1380 vs TV1380. Perfect TV equalness. The Rangers came in third place last season with only one loss. Unfortunately for them that loss came versus the rotters and it is easy to understand why. Normally most teams have a weakness either against the strength or the speed of the lizards. But the punks can match their strength and with both tentacles and diving tackle those skinks have a high probability to get stuck. Will Radio Rangers tune in to the Punk frequency or will they be fast enough to achieve the Doppler effect?

 
Match 4 – My Little Hashut (Chaos Dwarfs) vs Ball, Bounce and Beyond (Kislev)
TV 1460 vs TV 1440. In our final match we have the winner from last season, who only lost 1 match of 8 in total. However, that lost match was against My Little Hashut. Will history repeat itself? Let’s compare some statistics. BBB 2 blocks + 2 wrestle vs Hashut 8 block + 1 wrestle. BBB 2 guard versus Hashut 3 guards. BBB with 3 dodge vs Hashut 6 tackle. So it seems likely but BBB has the leaping possibility to change it all.

mmm, loving the smell of a new season, and so does Locking Lenny, our new recruit.

Seems the dancing elves will face off versus the strong and thin bodies of the khemri astronauts.

Not certain about my times but sunday afternoon will probably work. Next week monday, tuesday and thursday evenings (starting 18:30-20:30) are an option, but one of those days will soon disappear. Do not know which evening yet.

Oh, and the by the way, seems we are changing to wintertime this evening...

/hakos

Hello, Hakos.

Tuesday and Thursday at 19:00 would both work. So we can do whichever one is free and most convenient for you.

Ok, let's try for tuesday 19:00 and keep thursday in reserve in case my plans change (could still happen).

Nimble Feets are in, ready to dance you off the field
10  General Information / Sign Up! / Re: Season 32 SIGNUP on: October 16, 2018, 06:29:38 PM
I'm in, with Nimble Feets.

Was considering if I should join with YMCA team instead. All I needed was to kick one player to get down to the required TV.

However, I'm curious about how the wood elves will perform at higher team values. They start to get nice skills now but I'm also quite afraid what will happen when you get more MB and tackle...

Congratulations to our season 31 champion: BBB and their coach Barmution who won the final game 2-1.

Well played as always Barmution.

Thank you everyone for the encouraging words about "The Legends". I hope it will return for the next season, and it will if just the editor has time for it.

THE LEGENDS OF BLOOD BOWL, ISSUE NUL31:FINAL

Well, that was an epic ending to the regular season. First lizards versus kislev played 1-1 to keep the final hope alive for all four teams. Then the astronauts got their first victory for the season, to the dismay of the few remaining betting agencies, removing the favorite My Little Hashut from any chance of reaching the final. It is almost as if Nuffle had taken a personal interest in the NUL happenings. The wood elfs had some problem finding holes in the solid goblin team but due to some, normal, elf happenings they finally managed to win and secure a spot in the final together with BBB. Seems the last match ended with only winners. The punk rotters won the actual match while the owner of Dis Thing of Ours seemed equally happy at the demise of a goblin. Speaking of goblins, did you know that 9 out 11 dead players this season were goblins?

Now, let’s focus on the final match this season, between Nimble Feets (NIF) and Ball, Bounce and Beyond (BBB)


Match 1 - Nimble Feets (Wood Elves) vs Ball, Bounce and Beyond (Kislev)
Both teams have had an equally impressive season with 4 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss each. When they met each other the result was 1-1. NIF do top the ranking though due to better TD difference with +10. However, Kislev is not far beyond with +7, the second best TD difference for the season. This gives NIF the home stadium advantage in the final. The owners are probably happy as well since both teams have increased their value with about 50% during the season. Especially impressive for NIF since they had to replace two players and the NIF players ain’t cheap. On the other hand, BBB is the only team to still have the original crew, which is also quite impressive.

Let’s look closer at NIF. They are definitely the best offensive team with 16 touchdowns in 7 matches. That is more than 2 a match. Or, the same amount as the teams placed in 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th position together. It seems they do this with a combination of running and throwing, since they do this way more than any other team. In fact they have done more passes than all other teams combined.

Let’s look closer at BBB. They are definitely the best defensive team with only 4 TD conceded in 7 matches. In four of their seven games their opponent did not manage to do a single TD. Another key strength for BBB is their flexibility. They do not appear at the top of any table but they are second in agile tables and also second in some of the bashing tables. This shows that they are capable of adapting their game style to whom they play. Finally they do have some chart topping star players, like Bonkers Bertram, “Mr. Sandman”, and Brittle Brian who is the most “Eager Passer”.
 
So, with all this data, what do our specialists say?
Bookie: “Draw in regular time, and in turn twenty BBB will win due to their extra RR.”
Economist: “Most valuable team will win, which is NIF.”
Fortune Teller: “Difficult to see. Always in motion the future is.”
Crowd Expert: “Don’t forget all the leaping, most successful leaping will win.”

Gratz on the season, Hakos! Well done!

When do you want to throw down in the finals? I've got most of early Sat and Sun free if that suits you.

Cheers,
Barm

Same to you, impressive done with those Kislev. Sunday is ok for me the whole day. How about starting at 10:00?

EDIT: I'm registered in the final

What a final match day, lots of exciting and unexpected results. Going into this day I know I had a theoretical chance of reaching the final but I did honestly not expect it. And I definitely did not expect to claim the #1 spot (is that based on number of goals by the way, or how do BB2 separate between me and BBB?)

@J-Reedy: Love how you are able to turn really bad luck and a loss into a complete, consistent and fun story for your team. Well done.

@Saitani: I really thought you would make the final, sorry about having bad luck in the final game

@Napoleon: Really happy to see that you have managed to bounce back after some serious technical problems in the beginning of the season. Good persistence.

@Kvasilad: Yes, also looking forward to meet BBB again. Our first match ended 1-1 and I don't think neither of us had learned how to play our teams at that point.
