And bow locks did I get to play a few games.. no. So I expect to be out first round. And why are Wayward warriors in, their coach has not been around for 21 days, I suppose he is a tournament filler.

Edit: And I was knocked out first round

wo0t...

Everybody tries to take down the Talons but this is a team of destiny. "Prime Time" Allisia can't be stopped and will lead the Talons of Ulthuan to another championship. Who? Who I ask you will stop us? The Chaos Dwarfs (W4-2) nope, Necromancerors (W3-1), Undead (W3-1), Darkies (W3-2), Pro Elves (W2-0)... We come to play baby! Woo!

You're just lucky that "Terrible" Toraz Taze isn't even on your side of the board, as Triple T is all up in this Beatch, cause when it's game time, it's pain time! And you "woo" is weak baby ...

Should there be a time limit imposed on the rounds, say three weeks per round that gives everyone plenty of time.

May I remind you that every team has there own "special bubble" which cannot be penetrated without written consent :D Oh and btw, I heard Triple T is a quitter not a hitter.

Well, the Talons are out. Guess thats what happens when you 1's for every roll while your opponent breaks armor like crazy. Pretty dissapointing. Alot of ball bounces didnt go my way as well but hey thats bloodbowl.

This just in...

"Tom I'm standing here in the capital of Ulthuan where the Talon faithful have taken to the streets. Many are in a state of shock, some crying but most of all Tom... anger. Fans have been non stop rioting since the loss happend. Many had picked the Talons to at least get to the semi-finals, including our own WBBL specialist Tom Rkieland. All the companies who placed adds with the Talons in hopes of getting a lot of "air time" have now gotten nothing for there money. I'd have to think that the prestige of this club is at an all time low. I'd have to think there are some big time questions for the Everqueen to ask, mostly will Azreal be back for another season after such a dissapointing performance? Will Alissia be back after going through the game with only one catch and no td's? We will have to wait and see what happens in the very long off season that awaits the Talons. Back to you Tom"

Well at least your team only suffered the one permanent injury. Death does tend to be permanent. Except when the victim gets up and goes to join a local necromantic team.

And for my next trick, taking on a team with a 60 TR deficit!

Naggorite Nevermoore vs Tenpole Tufty Club

The first half was disappointing for the orcs let down by the Black orcs inability to survive bad block rolls and the pain Boldheart getting into position making him a pain. The all was snatched from the orc cage and the elf catchers carried the ball to a safe distance and waited for their last turn to score the first touchdown of the match.
The second half went better for the orcs with an interception by Roger Moore the orc blitzer who then ran the ball down to pass to Monkey. Monkey defended by blitzers and Black orcs was able to get to the opposition touchdown to equalize. The game was now tense.
The elves made a massive break through and half their team ran behind the orc line but this left the ball not very well defended and Patrick Mcnee was able to blitz the ball carrier, unfortunately I made the mistake of trying to pick up the ball, I should have left it where it was and just surrounded the ball. So the bal was drpped even after a reroll. The elves were able to recover snatch the ball and pass it to get a second touchdown.

The elves had a blitz and were able to catch the ball but at last jaws figured out how to use the knuckle-dusters and took the catcher out of the game. The ball was picked up and passed to the goblin but he got blitzed and an elf lineman caught the ball.
So my hopes were on Tee Hee to blitz the lineman from prone but he rolled skulls the useless now future LOS player. The elves now sensing victory made outrageous passes to score a third touchdown.

There were few casualties inflicted by the orcs, which was disappointing. I was pleased with how well the orcs did perform what with the TR difference and I did keep my opponent on his toes and maybe worried at times.

Almost since their creation they've been one of the best teams in the League and I fully expect them to go through to a final against Athletico Middenheim.

FPF are the team I fear. Though the Dwarves are the only team to have beaten them.

On Athletico I just fear that St 5 monster :)

" With the 1st pick in the draft, The Talons select Aeolos, Lion Warrior. "

Now to wait ages for the other first round games to get played, if they get played. Crymson not seen for 12 days, heldane still on version 8.6, hopefully Lord Snotball will be around soon and finally Riddy and Raw Messiah . Is there no time limit imposed just in case.

Maybe if the opponents dont show up for a week or w/e the desired time is we could swap them for a team thats already been eliminated, like oh say the Talons.

16-01-2007, 10:11
I'm sorry but how would that be fair?

Giving people two slices of the pie in a KO tournament doesn't seem to make sense to me.

Autobot HQ
16-01-2007, 11:05
I don't get my game, I get a pass into the next round baby, same as any other elimination tournyment that has an injury or failure to compete.

Easy cop out to avoid the PAIN that is the NZQ for the new team personally, though I'm going down against the Medics anyway lol :p

Keravin
16-01-2007, 11:12
Whichever one of us wins goes down against the Skaven anyway :)

Autobot HQ
16-01-2007, 11:39
I reckon I can take the rats down personally if I get this game against the Norse and can skill a couple more players, but I can't see myself out-powering the Medics to victory. And lets be about right, when have y'all ever see me NOT try and outpower people :p lol

It is no way a given i'll beat the orcs- 4 black orcs and a troll are scary. All he needs to get is virus as one of his handicaps and i will be down to 10 (i got a freebooter...) and only 1 gutter.

I need some of my infamous luck to give him palmed coin and one of the 'lesser' handicaps.

Gres
16-01-2007, 20:55
Lord Snotball said he can only play at weekends but as he wasn't on last weekend we will have to wait until next to play - I will let him know my availability when I know it.

The game entirely depends on the handicaps but given the TR difference I would certainly hope to win!

Jet
16-01-2007, 21:36
The game entirely depends on the handicaps but given the TR difference I would certainly hope to win!

TR difference? Bah! What one has to remember to do is to play to the situation. If you're playing TR up, then man-for-man you will come off worst, so want to avoid those 1 on 1 scuffles. This requires key positioning so that your players help each other.

When playing TR down, you do want the personal encounters. Then, at least somewhere, you will create a heavy skill mismatch in your favour which is where you then attack!

Raise this as an issue with Yorkie. It is important we get communication between the coaches.

PhrollikK
17-01-2007, 17:55
What would happen if someone doesn't want to play/is inactive? I mean do we have a deadline for every round? I was thinking at first that players would advance automatically if opponent is absent, but on second thought why not give ppl knocked out to have another chance (no this has nothing to do with me getting knocked out! :p )

Autobot HQ
17-01-2007, 18:10
I can't see any reason someone should get a second chance I'm afraid, regardless that I'm looking like I get my pass :p besides, I'd love to play the Norse, I'm f*@^$&g them up if I get them on the pitch ;)

As I've said, in any other competition when you're out, you're out. Same applies here. You get one game and only one game, otherwise someone could swan into the final if another player had an emergency and couldn't play. It's make or break time here at Middenheim Square Gardens!

th0r
17-01-2007, 18:17
Yea but a first round bye is pretty unfair. I mean how fair is it that you get a soft opponent and I dont for the first round? Your just against it cause you don't want to be matched up with the Talons.

Autobot HQ
17-01-2007, 18:18
Baby, I'll f*&k the Talons up n'all. And my first round bye means I'm looking to play against the Medics with an unskilled bull and TR down. Yeah, that is EXACTLY what I wanted :p

th0r
17-01-2007, 18:32
I'd rather advance to the 2nd unskilled then loose in the 1st round.

Gres
17-01-2007, 18:45
Could the 8.6-8.7 problem be solved by Autobot temporally going back to 8.6? IIRC only the main JBBowl file changed.

Jet
17-01-2007, 20:15
Unless the outstanding games have been arranged to be played at a fixed time, or at least have had correspondence between the 2 coaches, I think we should advance all matches to the 2nd round. We really don't want this dragging on due to those making a less active contribution.

If we are keen on forming a league, matches will have to be played regularly. This is simply my opinion.

On a slightly lighter note, can I hold a quick straw poll? Who thinks I should hire Ramtut III for my semi-final match? Either to deal with multiple lizardmen saurus or a certain S5 individual :D .

Autobot HQ
17-01-2007, 20:16
erm, what problem?

Autobot HQ
17-01-2007, 20:25
Ramtut III definitly, one of the better superstars him

Gres
17-01-2007, 20:33
I thought heldane was stuck on 8.6 and that was one of the issues, or am I confused? Crymson was on briefly today and heldane has been on recently but if there isn't communication then there's not a lot we can do but set a deadline.

I suggest that we wait until Sunday as that will be the last chance I get to play snotty if he can only do weekends... plus I need 20K to hire another ST5 (big) guy. What's the position on stars? In the original draft of the rules they were not allowed but as humans have a nice wide range it wouldn't hurt me for that to change.

Autobot HQ
17-01-2007, 20:58
Well, it's up to yorkie but what I thought was with the Fumbbl Cup it would be high profile enough for them to appear. Just this once like lol. Up to yorkie end of the day

/end Lacky

th0r
17-01-2007, 21:00
I think Sunday should be the deadline. As for stars, i'd say go for it. I mean it is a tournament after all. I think anybody that didnt show up should be thrown in the holding league. I mean for the health of the league we should have people that can play at least once a week.

tenpole
17-01-2007, 22:01
Listen, I think Sunday deadline UNLESS the coaches DO communicate to say they are unable to play by then and could they schedule another date. At the moment there is no communication with these new guys, us lot, we cant shut up but as I have mentioned time and time before, communication is the key to a successful community. Heldanes trouble was that he was on 8.6 and was unable to upgrade.

EDIT: But at the end of the day Yorkie can has to be the one to decide.

tenpole
17-01-2007, 22:27
I think crysom will not show and heldane wil stil be on 8.6 meaning the two dwarf teams NZQ and the Medics wil play each other. Good news for Foul peal frenzy as the two teams will kick the *&&( out of each other and the skaven get to play the battle scarred team. Foul Peak will beat the darf team.
AM will beat the Justice, but will loose against Riddy and his lizards. Riddy will loose against Benny leaving the skaven to play the undead.

The skaven will have suffered from casualties from the dwarf game and so will loose against Benny and everyone will be shocked that a middle Div 1 team win the cup and not a premiership team.

In a shocking turn of of events, the WSTV network is here LIVE with the Bloodbowl Offices of Legal Organisation Concerning Superstars (BOLOCS), and there spokesman, Mikeal Cleveland.

"Well, it seems that when the Warseer cup was organised, that it's founder and CEO did not fill out the required pink form in triplicate. Now, whilst a double pink form correctly filled out will allow us to hire out our Superstars, such as Jordel or Borak, for National Tournaments, it does not allow them for International Tournaments. And with the Warseer Cup drawing in teams from around the globe, we require the triplicate double covered form complete with cover sheet to allow our stars into the field of play. So, unfortunately, No Star Players will be present for the Warseer Cup. It's just our BOLOCS policy."

So there we have it, a BOLOCS ruling means that there will be No Star Players in the Warseer Cup. Looks like it's down to the sheer skill of the players to win this for the teams.

I should just point out that AM are the only team to beat me so far, damn multiple guards. I am apprehensive about the up and coming match, which is why i'm hoping they lose, or atleast take a beating. That S5 blitzer will have to be dealt with....

19-01-2007, 12:31
An idea just hit me regarding the inactive cup-members situation: Seeing as there appears to be 2 inactives and 2 actives wouldn't a viable solution be that the two actives play a regular KO-match versus each other and The last remaining match is played between two of the 8 KO'd players from round one, arbitrarily selected (ie. most TD's scored in round one or some such)?? That way no one goes through uncontested and only one KO'd team advances to round two as a wild card...

Dont worry PhrollikK, Autobot will join us after his game against the medics. See how HE likes it with a team with multiple block and guard and mighty blow.


Edit: I see NZQ and KM are through by default as the other two teams failed to show or were unable to play. Lets watch the dwarf teams smash each other up.

Edit 2: And AM go through by default to play Riddys Lizardmen. With these two games it is difficult to predict the winner.

Lo Guys,

just wanted to apologise for not playing the match with Gres in the 1st round. I was supposed to pay him 2 weekends ago, butgot swamped with work, and only finished this Saturday. Unfortunately, tho both Gres and I got on on Sunday, it was at different times...

Hope to have a better workload for the next tournament... Sorry

As for Stars, why not have a limit on which stars u can use, say those under 80k for example. By using the price as a parametre you can buy stars that will influence the match, but not dominate it...

Not having Ironman isn't a problem, it just means he has to be protected alot more :p

Incase you haven't noticed my skinks have an uncanny (http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=team&op=pastplayers&team_id=300809) ability of surviving matches, yes thats right, 12 matches only 2 skinks with permanant injuries :p
