Title: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on February 16, 2016, 04:35:03 PM
Good afternoon all!

I am looking to start a new league for Blood Bowl 2, checked it's okay to advertise with a mod and figured this would be a good place to do it! Do you have BB2? Do you want to play against people who are friendly? Then get it on Steam and join the W-E league! If you're interested lets get this going!

Would we play a set amount of scheduled matches and just work out times to play as we go?

I've pretty much just played open ladder so far

That would be the plan. I'll set up.a league today and then post the league name here. Then we should have say 1/2 games a week?

I have a friend who bought it -- I'll see if I can maybe get him to join us.

I have set up a "W-E League" on the game, it has free admission, make you're team and add it!
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Syn Ace on March 03, 2016, 08:57:36 PM
Awesome. I'll have to sign up.
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 05, 2016, 06:01:25 PM
It is all set up. I can't invite people as I don't know what team they want!
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Siberius on March 05, 2016, 09:21:06 PM
I signed a team up

I look forward to playing a balanced league! Just tried to play a game, it's ridiculous that it matches up 1700 elf teams against 1000 new teams! Is just frustrating!

One thing I hate about Blood Bowl is their poor interface and UI. We building teams from scratch?

I play all my internet Blood Bowl on FUMBBL. I've thought about picking up the video game, but I can always find an opponent on FUMBBL, it's free, and it's true to the board game. So I decided to save the cash.

Mogsam, try to cancel the search before 15 seconds is up and start it again. It might take a few cycles but during the first 15 seconds it will try and match you with a much closer team tv.
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 06, 2016, 09:26:08 AM
Yeah from scratch.

That's good to know Sib, it'll stop me ending up conceding when every single player on their team has dodge, block and mighty blow and I have linemen. After 6/7 turns it stops being fun. It feels like bad sportsmanship to concede but it's not fun and takes an hour and a bit most times!

Post by: Siberius on March 06, 2016, 03:32:41 PM
Yeah when I've taken wood elves to high TV it gets very hard to avoid the chaos kill teams. Even when you buy an extra apo you've used both by turn 2 and are feeling pretty worried about your wardancers...

But using the stop start game finder method I've not gone into one of those crazy matchups for a long time and not conceded for ages. I try to tell myself these days when I get in against a kill team that a little TV trimming might not be so bad anyways...

"Gotrek's Grudgebearers" have signed up for the league.  :icon_biggrin: (My BB2 IGN = Bren)

"Ball? What ball? We're just here to fight."  :icon_twisted:

Blood Bowl is fun at the basic level until you get the teams with a bazillion abilities.
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: knightofthelance on March 08, 2016, 01:54:59 AM
And then it's still fun, mostly. It's rare that it happens within the time frame of a tournament or league though. Things like FUMBBL and the computer games to make it possible now though.

I must admit once TVs start to hit 15-1800 I start to get more scared of what I might face. That said, I usually do ok. It's just there are so many skills on so many different models it gets hard to remember them and you start making silly mistakes.

Dwarfs Badwolf? My dark elves are feeling a bit wary now...  :ph34r:

I play Orcs! Just need to make them up and join myself!

I usually play Chaos Dwarfs on the tabletop but they're not an option in BB2.  :icon_frown:

I generally finish at the bottom of the table in club leagues but I try for the highest body count.

I usually put dodge on every elf as first priority so dwarfs are my real nemesis. Maybe I'll put block/wrestle as first skill for this league ;-)

That said I recently have run a couple of dwarf teams lately and have made sure every single player had trip just cos I know how elves feel about it!
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 09, 2016, 02:16:02 PM
I hate elves. They're so annoying in every variation of warhammer!

I've had a few heroic catches with my orc team. Running game is their specialty clearly.

It's more satisfying completinga pass with orcs, though even more so with dwarfs, I love doing that to people cos they never see it coming!

I only have it on xbox, but I like my Orc & Goblin team.  Loving the Goblin throw one-turn touchdown.  At least on the rare occasion it actually makes all the dice rolls!
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Siberius on March 13, 2016, 06:57:03 PM
So how many are we aiming for?
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 14, 2016, 05:56:49 PM
I had 8 open but 4 seems more likely at this point.
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Siberius on March 14, 2016, 08:43:18 PM
Four would make for a decent first run at least
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 14, 2016, 09:53:28 PM
Feanor is going to make it four!
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Mogsam on March 18, 2016, 08:14:51 PM
That's four. Shall we organise games?
Title: Re: Blood Bowl 2 W-E League
Post by: Siberius on March 21, 2016, 12:48:55 PM
Works for me!

I got a dark elf team to 5-0 in the world cup before they got destroyed. Now I'm trying my hand at one of my list favorite teams, chaos in the open league. Doing a lot better than previous attempts.

Would be nice to play against some more real feeling people though, it's kinda soul destroying slowly losing a match vs a faceless opponent.

Hey we could still this, the teams are all still sitting there...
