Blood Bowl is an ultra violent team sport, based on the Warhammer fantasy world. Build up your team with Orcs, Elves, Dwarfs and many other fantasy creatures before jumping into the bloodiest arenas! Blood Bowl was originally created by Jervis Johnson and Games Workshop in 1987. The board game, a parody of the Warhammer world and American Football, met with success in the 80s and the 90s. The world’s largest Tabletop Wargames company continues to sell the game's miniatures today. Also, its creator never stopped improving and enriching Blood Bowl’s game system and universe with several rule changes.

Today, Blood Bowl remains very popular around the world thanks to a large community of players and numerous dedicated fansites. As for old Blood Bowl players, they have unforgettable memories of all the passionate games they used to play. Throughout the years, the original Blood Bowl game has earned a legendary status.


_le_jeu_en.png
The game is a combination of a tactical game and a sports game The basics are extremely simple: two teams, one ball. The team that carries the ball into the opponent's end zone scores a touchdown, the team with the most touchdowns at the end of the game is the winner. However, it’s how you decide to do this that makes things interesting, the ends justify the means! It’s not just the players you have at your disposal either. You can bribe the referee’s to look the other way as you cripple or trample annoying opponents and hire illegal wizards to give you a hand directly from the crowd… Blood Bowl severely tests the finest tacticians' strategies. Note: This is not anything resembling a Madden type game with Orcs, it is a TURN BASED game.

League Info:
RULES
Currently we are going by Gentleman ruleset. Don't be a Goose. Don't Disconnect if your losing. Don't Concede if you're losing. Try to get your game played in a reasonable time frame (One Week currently per game, may be adjusted later).

To keep the League flowing I'm instituting a new rule - If you are incommunicado for a week or more, you may be dropped for someone that is willing to be more active. As always, there are exceptions and what not, but if you can't send me a PM to let me know that there is an issue, then I can't guarantee your spot will still be there when you come back.

12 man Rule:
You have 12 men on the field of play. You are unable to remove one to make it 11. What do you do?

Player with the extra man:
- Move the offending player to the far corner of the end zone and not touch him unless he needs to move him to the other corner as the game play progresses. This player may not make any move other than to get out of the way of traffic and should never be in the way of traffic.

Player without the extra man:
- Will NOT touch the offending player and pretend it does not exist.

If you want your game validated in a timely manner, contact me either through Steam(preferred for quicker response times) or PM me here.

How do I know who I am playing and how do I actually Play a match?

    Okay, so hideously newbie at this. What the hell, though - I'd like to try it out. Is there room for one more?

  • DrakeDrake Blow it all up ForeverRegistered User regular
    Looks like we have a nice variety of teams happening.

    I'm looking forward to playing this game with all of you. There should be some good fun in this thing.

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    Aside from what's already there, I'd also point out a couple things for the teams in terms of strengths and weaknesses

    Nurgle, Undead, Necromantic, and Khemri cannot take an Apothecary at all. Instead, they have a Necromancer that takes the Apothecary's place (or in Nurgle's case, it's represented by the Nurgle's Rot skill) which if they kill an opposing player, they get a free Rotter/Skeleton/Zombie at the conclusion of the game. All of these teams generally have Regeneration on most or all of their players to help them survive, but not this makes the players that do not have Regeneration that much more fragile on these teams (Rotters for Nurgle, Ghouls for Undead/Necromantic)

    Also, as far as strengths go Nurgle is extremely adept, even with a fresh team, at shutting down a passing game due to Disturbing Presence on their Nurgle Warriors and Beast of Nurgle.

    And I'd reinforce the fact that being able to take Mutations on a normal roll for Nurgle, and especially Chaos, is a massively huge long term strength that shouldn't be underestimated. A Minotaur with Tentacles and Stand Firm is a wonderfully frustrating road block, even moreso than the Beast of Nurgle most of the time, single Really Stupid causes the player to lose their tackle zones for the remainder of the turn, while Wild Animal does not.

    While I doubt there will be that many of us who are really good at the game, occasionally the dice will just work against you and kill off your entire team. My first game I ended up playing some veteran guy with over 2000 games. I managed to draw the game, but mainly by killing 3 of his team members, injuring 4 others and the rest spent the entire game running away from my angry werewolves. I could have won too, but I didn't realize that we were in the last turn.

    Sure. I can barely hold my own against the AI, and that's when I'm not getting diced to death. :P

    I'm just looking to have some laffs with some PAers with this game. It's pretty much the perfect vehicle for some quick turn-based goofin' off while still keeping some light and friendly competition going.

    I'd be keen to play, but Australian time zone! About what timeish would people be looking at playing their games? The last league I played in I would usually be able to match up my saturday/sunday morning with an American friday/saturday night.

    Also are you playing time limited turns? I have a young bub which may require an urgent AFK (although if needed I'll take the hit!). Also I found time limited turns is quite tough for new players.

    I'd prefer the timed turns just to keep the games moving at a decent pace.

    I know I can get lost in the moment when looking over all my actions in a game like this. I'll accept the extra difficulty, just so I don't keep my opponent waiting. Especially since I'm not really "in it to win it."

    Four minutes is plenty of time to make moves, even if you're not very experienced (two minutes is good if you are). Without a time limit, games can easily last over two and a half hours. Also, I suggest that write little match reports after they're finished with a game. You can describe any major events that happened and if you want can be creative. I can't wait to get into BB again!

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Valid point on the time limit. I'll sign up when I get home from work. Hopefully TZ won't be too much of an issue. I'll pick a race which hasn't been picked yet to get some more diversity.

    I just got this and I have a question. How do I add players to the field on a kickoff? When I have injuries/KO's and it says I don't have enough players on the field, I can't add more. I can only swap between players already on the field and my bench. I see their names on the right side of the screen, but when I click on the name then on the field nothing happens.

  • SceptreSceptre Registered User regular
    Yeah, honestly, 4 minutes is a LONG time for the turn limit. Even for new players I would have suggested possibly 3.

    I'd be tempted to join, except for 3 things; 1) I'm completely out of practice (not that I was any good anyway), 2) I'm in the UK, making it difficult to arrange matches due to timezones, and 3) there are entirely too many other games out at the moment, and nowhere near enough time.

    Granted, number 3 is a minor excuse that is easily bypassed, but whatever.

    Plan on 2-2.5 hours each week when you factor in meeting up online, BB's periodic connection frustrations, and a more realistic game length given the apparent newness of most coaches in this league.

    I think Lord Snot and Cpugeek are the only experienced players so far, and maybe Talios though I'm unsure. So we have a decent mix of newbies and veterans.

    As far as time zomes go, well, we are just doing 1 match a week guys. It'd probably be possible to work something out with most people.

    Is there anyway to Mod/Change the layout of the game UI? The chat window is so HUGE and the icons on the right side are large, and if there are players listed on the right sided(Why are they listed there anyway?) they take up another large chunk of real estate.
