Will we all be starting with fresh teams, or should we get a few games under our belts in the League beforehand?

The plan, such as it is so far, is to start with fresh teams in the League. However everyone is encouraged to make Academy teams to get in some practice before the League Tournament starts. You can have 30 teams active at any time so don't be afraid to make up a team in Academy to learn the ropes. If they get crushed or you just don't care for them then you can retire them and make another. The retired team won't count against the 30 you can have so I think you won't have to worry about running out of slots.

The idea is that everyone starts the Tournament on even standing as far as team strength goes. If someone gets a chance to play 3 or 4 games with their League team and someone else joins just as we start the Tournament then team that's played a few games is likely to have gotten a few skills making them stronger. Of course they may also have a few players die in which case they'd be much weaker. In either case it just seems that everyone starting fresh is the best idea.

Even if you don't get a chance to practice before the Tournament I suggest you join anyway. We can use an Open Round Robin format which will allow coaches to choose the order in which they play. That way we can try and pair people up according to their experience and if you have a tough game against, letís say, a Dorf team (Stupid Dorfs) and have injured players you can try to set your next match against an Elf team and hopefully get a chance to recover. If we have enough people and an odd number I might do what the site suggests and not actually have a team in the tournament. That way if there are any disputes itíll be easy to stay objective and I can concentrate on figuring out how to run a Tournament since Iíve never done it before.

I suppose I am nominally in charge since I was the one that created the group. I did it mainly to see how hard it was to do (the answer: not hard at all). Rob and Steve are on as Staff (what all that entails I donít think weíve completely figured out yet). However everything is still up in the air and weíre a certainly open for suggestions. I'm usually online and in the BB Meebo room (Link is in the original post) around 7pm to 10pm EST (GMT -5) on weekdays. On the weekend it varies but since I'm still rather addicted I'll probably be around. Rob (The Pied Piper) and Steve (Ackblom12) are generally on about the same time. Steve is normally at work at that time so can't play but he'll be more than happy to answer questions and give advice (Note: His advice is likely to include the words "Foul" and "Often" you should ignore those words) and his work schedule might make him more available for those people in different time zones. Rob is our official Blood Bowl teacher. He knows the rules and the tactics and unlike me he has the ability to instruct others. Rob is also known as the Red Whisperer. He has the uncanny ability to make the most out of what should be a very risky move.

Tl:dr Ė Blood Bowl is good clean violent fun and you should play.

I'd say that my only complaint about the game is that Dorfs are incredibly unfun to play against until you got a few skilled players.

Fuck Dorfs.

Of course you want to talk about your sick teams look no farther than Chaos. (I'm looking at YOU Mr. Ackblom.) They have okay speed and good AV and have access to disgusting skills (literally and figuratively). Apparently they are weak at start but are one of the stronger teams when they start getting some kills. So folks, remember when playing a starting Chaos team kick them when they're down!


This is true! but Chaos are pretty painful to play early on. No skills outside of Horn, so it's kind of like having a choice of different players, but they're all lineman. I mean, the optimal early build for a Chaos team is all beastman and that's just boring as hell.

Edit - Also, I'm staying away from Claws from now on... that shit is just mean. Of course this also means I have to stay away from Razer Claws...

EDit again - What if I just stay away from Razer Claws and take Claws? That's fiar right? Right!?!?!?

I'm certain I'll have the time to play in June, although I haven't played in literally aeons. And don't worry about being too powerful Ackblom. If worst comes to worst I'll just make Khemri team and murder half your good players with mummies about halfway through the tournament.

I'm thinking of going Norse just because even their starting lineman can lay the hurt with a little luck.


[EDIT] Which version of the LRB does FUMBBL use? I'm pretty certain there's a LRB 5, but the link at the beginning of the thread took me to a LRB 4...

[EDIT AGAIN]

Man, I'm not a good blood bowl player, so I know I shouldn't play a vampire team since they usually fail miserably, but I keep reading quotes like this one and getting intrigued:
"Thralls really are the most amazing players on a Vampire team. You can actually select one and move it six squares across the pitch without any chance of killing a team-mate!"

FUMBBL currently uses the LRB4 rules.
They are currently Alpha testing the client for LRB5 though. It's an open test but I haven't tried it yet.

The User's Guide linked in the original post does have very useful information in it. It might be a good idea to play your first few games with a Human or Orc team. Once you get used to the program and the game then go ahead and make a Vampire team. Vampires have a trait called Blood Lust. Every time they do an action a die is rolled, on a 2+ the Vampire can act normally. On a 1 the vampire is over come with blood lust and must make a Move action and if he ends up next to a Thrall then he injures them (this could result in anything from a stun to being killed). If he doesn't end up next to a Thrall then he's removed from the field to the Reserve box. As you can tell this can lead to some frustrating moments for the Vampire coach and some hilarious moments for everyone else.

BTW Alex, there are two players named Alex C on my Orc team one is a Lineman but that didn't seem right so the other is a Blitzer called The Real Alex C. I'm sorry to say that The Real Alex C has not caused any casualties as of yet however he has scored twice.

In my opinion there are 3 choices for your first Blood Bowl team.

1) Human: The most balanced team on the game. They can run, pass and block easily and as you progress they can turn into some fairly great players.

2) Orc: Slightly more 'bashy' [This is the QC BBowl term for big and strong]: They have a couple of players with the ability to run the ball and usually you have one with the ability to pass it but there are no designated catchers. However, they are great at injuring the other team with some bashy players to allow you to run it through the gap.

3)Undead: This is a great team for the exciting part of the game that is attempting to maim and kill the other team. They have players who can run the ball but not really any passers or catchers. This really doesn't make too much difference though as the Mummies are there to maim and kill along with the zombies and the majority of players have the skill 'regenerate' so it is not often that you will have to replace your players leaving you plenty of cash for other boosts like extra rerolls.

I actually played blood bowl an awful lot on the table top in the '90s, so I've got a handle on warhammer lingo in general, although obviously there's been quite a few rules changes. Terms like "bashy" are kinda self-explanatory anyway. And yeah, I know that Vampire teams essentially self-destruct all the time thanks to Off For A Bite. Vamp teams are fairly terrible, really. You're essentially a gimped human team (because you're so dependent on thralls) that can randomly pull a miracle out if its ass if you use Gaze right. I definitely won't be playing vampires since it'd really just be a waste of my opponent's time more often than not.

I'm still torn though; on the one hand, Norse aren't very good because they're so damned fragile and have frightfully average speed. On the other, nobody can chuck people into the stands or abuse Pile On quite like a team of pissed-off Viking Blitzers. Well, except for developed witch elves, but then you get into fragile AND expensive territory. Will probably just go Dark elf or Orcs. Probably orcs, since they have the best names.

Your Undead team has to be in the League Division. Unfortunately you can't transfer from Academy to League. You can however recreate the team in League and use the one in Academy to practice for the tourny.


How bad are goblin teams?

I've yet to play with or against the gobbos. This is from the Strategy Guide for gobbos "First of all, if you really want to play the gobbos, then you have to realize that this game is all about having fun, and the Goblin team is all about creating chaos."
I do have a Halfling (known as flings) though and they are hilarious. They can be frustrating to play against though since they have a special rule where they can remove their opponents Rerolls. Last night I was attempting to throw a fling with one of my Treeman. I succeeded in throwing him but the pass went awry. Instead of the treeman throwing the fling into the clear area of the pitch he threw him right into one the elf players. The elf player went out of the game with a Serious Injury (Groin Pull). So even though I lost the game I managed to hit an elf in the balls with a halfling. I think that counts as a win.

If you want some advice from current players join the QC BBowl room in Meebo. I'll be around all day, ackblom will be around later most likely and fang will be there at some time aswell. If the room is left empty one of us will leave a message when we'll be back. PM one of us for the password if you don't have it.

Finally, good luck and welcome to the QC BBowl community.

The Inaugural Pocket Judge, Jury, and Executioner Blood Bowl Tournament is tentatively scheduled to begin June 14th.
Please respond and let us know if that's a good date for you (and if it's not what would be a good date) and if you plan to attend.
Even if you're not planning on playing it would be nice to reply and say so. We need to have a pretty good grasp of the number of players to make the schedule and it will keep me from having to send annoying PMs.

Intricate knowledge of the game is NOT a requirement. This is a learning process for everyone. The key idea is to have fun. Good old fashioned bloody violent fun.
the_pied_piper (Rob) is available all this week if you'd like a learning game or three.

Any questions feel free to ask them here or PM Cardinal_Fang(Eric), the_pied_piper (Rob), or Ackblom12 (Stephen).

Edit: Those of you who are going to play you'll need create a team in the League Division and please don't play any games with that team before the tourny.

So a provisional list for the tourney is:

the_pied_piper (Rob)
ackblom12 (Stephen)
CardinalFang (Eric)
E.Spaceman
Jeans
Christophe
Supersheep
Negative Creep*
Storm Rider
ideologist

*May have to arrange set times.

If you'd like to add yourself to the list you can either post in this thread or PM the_pied_piper, CardinalFang or ackblom12 and we'll sort that for you.

The plan is to hopefully have a nice number of players to work with (ideally 12 or 16 but if not no worries, don't feel like you can't play because of this) and set up 2 conferences based on time zones to make it easier to schedule the games. After the conferences there would be playoffs with each player eventually being given a single rank so everyone plays the same number of games regardless of where you finish.

Provisional start date is 14th June and it would likely run just over a week if we play a game a day but this is just a provisional setup and can be altered if necessary. Hopefully we'll get a few new faces joining in and good luck to everybody involved.

P.S. Don't forget about our blood bowl room in Meebo which anyone is free to join to talk blood bowl, find a game or even learn from scratch from one of the more experienced players (most likely me as i have been designated the teaching position). Just PM one of the current players for the password.

EDIT: All players must start with a fresh team in the League division. Any race is acceptable.

Also, if you feel like you got the mindset to play in the Stunty Leeg it is great fun. 3 of us have already started up teams for it so if you want to try it out it's quite a bit of fun. More flair and ridiculousness than even normal Blood Bowl.

Well, its likely that we're going to set a certain number of games to be played over the next 4 days so that everyone can schedule it when they're free. Official rules will follow soon.

Also, any stragglers can still join, i'm extending the deadline for another hour or two while i make the necessary arrangements.

Hey Emilio, Just to let you know I stayed up way too damn late, so it's possible I may not be waking up in time to do our game before I head out today. If you're up for it though I'll be able to do it later tonight like, 10 - 12 Eastern guaranteed.

I could have sworn that I was in this, but I do not really mind, because I'm at work, and really really really bored, so I did this





just because I'm s bored and oh god someone save me from this work.


So yeah, woo, go The First Pocket Judge, Jury, and Executioner Blood Bowl Tournament. Woo.

I'm hoping for a Muppet's Vengeance vs. Treekeepers final.

You should be in there somewhere. You have a League Team in the group.
I don't know what happened there. Hopefully we can work something out.

Sorry about that Ryan, i'll change it to include you in the Eastern division. We of the East will still be starting Monday though as Jens is not back until tomorrow.

Jens is back today so as soon as his team is entered we will be opening the Eastern Division. Western Conference is already open so good BBowling to all.

(Pocket Jury Pitch) The Pocket Judge, Jury, and Executioner West Conference has just suffered its first full casualty. Gonzo, a player in Muppet Vengeance, died in the 1st half after being blocked by a Best Wing lineman. According to coach Ackblom12, Gonzo had been needlessly reckless in the season's first game, having to Regenerate from a death. Unfortunately, Gonzo was not so lucky this time.

Despite this, Muppet Vengeance has been doing remarkably well, sending three of the opposing team's players back to the bench (including one sprained groin, in what spectators are calling "a relentlessly disgusting act of violence and possibly sexual assault"), and scoring the first goal of the night.
