Season 40 - New teams, hopes and dreams
« on: July 09, 2020, 08:34:22 PM »
Season 39 is on it's last legs, so let's start the season 40 sign-ups.

It's been three seasons, so time to start fresh. So, ONLY NEW TEAMS for season XXXX.

According to our established league structure, season 41 will be semi-experienced teams typically ca. max 1500 TV, and season 42 will reveal to us the meaning of life with unlimited TV. You are free to use older existing NUL teams for season 41 and 42, given that they fall within the TV limit, so that means you can swap out your fresh season 40 team if you're not happy with it! (...and you have an existing NUL team that qualifies)

If you know someone who might be interested in joining our little corner of the Blood Bowl world, please invite them!

I'm definitely in! Haven't decided on a team yet though.

So... Mr. B wanted to join? Can we ping him somehow?

Count me in aswell!

Gotta celebrate the 40th season somehow, so I think I will bring out an real old skool team I used back in the day, before Norsca, when this leauge was "Alvsvenskan".

Let me introduce to you.
The Skaven Team - The Warpstone Maniaks

When I come to think about it. Maybe I've used them before in Norsca aswell. But it doesnt matter it's a cool team and my skaven-teams usually end up being some iteration of that original old skool team ;D

NOTE: It will of course be a new team.

/Gnaarkill


P.S. The same as J-R, I also took a trip down memory road to look if I had used my warpstoned maniaks before. And, in fact, I used them, 7 years ago in season 10 ;D ;D

I'm definitely in.

Would be really cool if Mr B could join.

Don't know what to play yet. Have devised an "advanced" algorithm for the selection. Putting two of them against each other at a time for elimination in a ladder structure. Currently on the second level of that ladder so still 16 teams to select from but should only be 8 left before I go to sleep today... Let's see which team that seems most fun in the end. Still plenty of teams that I have never played, at least 8 or more so there are some to select from.

Norse is one of the team I would like to revisit, though. Last time I tried them I failed miserably. Would be interesting to see if I have gained some skills, or not. But if Saitani selects them I will definitely go for something else. For some reason I like to have a unique team in the season.

J-Reedy's post made me search up and read what happened in season 7. My very first NUL season. I played a rookie human team, Getingarna, as a rookie coach, in a league with advanced teams. In total I got 1-6 in match result. The only victory was against Gnaarkills Norse team, Vinterlegionen. Probably because his team was the only team that was an almost rookie team. In fact, we met two times and got 1-1 in that season. In hindsight, reading all comments and match report, what a newbie I was, but it was fun times.

Now I sort of want to play a human team again...

I've still not decided which team I want to bring, but I'll hopefully be in with something at the start of next week. Going on a bit of a low-tech vacation this week :)

I'm in, but I'm not entirely sure which team I'll go with. Possibly vampires.

Hi

I have more or less decided to go for dwarves this time.

Welcome back Mr B. Good time for you to join back now. I guess this season will not start for a few weeks more due to summer vacations.

Nick: Bantha

Can't add you on Discord without the entire tag (Bantha#<number>). Mine is tags#9341.

We have a Discord server up for NUL, so please find us there: https://discord.gg/p48AZz

As Hakos said, I think it'll probably be a week or two until everyone's back. Barmution was also contemplating a potential return, fingers crossed!
