    Fooms and I just played a 0-0 turnover bonanza. It was full of bells and sweltering heat. A rotter got his ankle smashed, which should keep him on the LOS forever. Or until he dies.

    Tiger Burning, I sent a Steam friend request to facilitate scheduling our matchup, in which the Division 1 title is on the line. If you win or tie, you're the champ, if I win, I'm the champ. Should be fun!

    As for Stunty, I couldn't find The Inspector on Steam under any of the names I found listed in the thread, and I know you said your time was limited, so let me know what works the best for you and I'll see what I can do to fit your schedule.

    The pre-match banter:
    Veevee: Send the challenge. And I just got some incredibly good news, so there is nothing Nuffle can do to bring me down
    Veevee: in other words, enjoy your win
    Gnizmo: nuffle will crap down your throat for such arrogance
    Veevee: Bring it Nuffle, I'm pissing your cherios here Nuffle.
    Gnizmo: I recommend forfeiting early so you have some players for next match

    Apparently Nuffle likes piss with his cheerios since I went on to win 3-0, one dead 0SPP Berserker and a MNG Linemen later.

    This was pretty awful all and all. The final score does not reflect the first half as is common with my games lately. First half was 0-0 with a few KOs and an injury a piece for both teams. 2 ejections from the Gnizmaniacs for fouling were held off by one kill which gave me a nice zombie to work with to help offset the ejections. After a lot of battling for the ball the half ended with me 2 squares from scoring after a double fail of a 3+ dodge for a score.

    Second half is where it gets messy. It opens with Asgard Arctic Cats receiving the ball. Two uneventful turns later he makes an amazing pass play and gets the ball literally from one end to the other giving him a 1-0 lead. After that nuffle decided I must be punished for my arrogance. Failing a 3+ roll 5 times (two of those were sure hands rerolls to boot) leaving the ball in prime territory for the Norse to rush through and stomp all over my poor team. This is especially sad when you consider the first 4 came from my typical ghoul scoring machine who could not pick up the ball to save his life. The Norse showed no such difficulty. My team got knocked around from goal to goal racking up a lot more KOs against us despite the AV advantage.

    Rough way to end the season, but thats how it goes I guess. At least I managed to nab an extra zombie.

    Nuffle got back at me. Poor Fili, the level 5 57SPP Runner who was the backbone of An Unexpected Journey.

    His Career ends with 758 yards running giving him 15 TDs and 2 MVPs. He will be missed.

    @chrisnl

    Accepted. I can play tonight or tomorrow night. Possibly tomorrow during the day as well. I'm GMT -4.

    @Banzai5150

    I think after this season I'm going to take a break for a while. I've lost the blood bowl bug for now. Thanks for organizing a great league, though.

    Damn, was hoping you guys would draw so that I'd be promoted regardless. Guess I'll have to make sure I at least draw against Custom Special, then. Time to make some sacrifices to Nuffle. :D

    Is there a writeup of how all the money works before a game? Because I don't understand any of that shit, or how much I should be saving or whatever. It just all goes over my head.

    I'm a new, but in my opinion you shouldn't use or save any of your money to spend on Inducements. If there is a large enough TV difference to give you cash take that and buy some things useful, otherwise I think it's better to put that cash to Rerolls, Apothecaries, Bench Depth if needed and some Cheerleaders/Assistant Coaches.

    ChrisNL did a good job explaining how cash affects inducements:
    chrisnl wrote: »
    The way inducement money is calculated is a little strange. If you add petty cash, it adds that amount to your TV for purposes of calculating the free inducement cash, so if you are 270 TV below and want to get to 300k, you literally would have to add in 300k gold, which would end up giving 30k inducement money to your opponent. Also, if you are ahead of your opponent in TV, and decide you want a wizard, the 150k you spend to get that wizard gets added into your opponent's petty cash.

    The game does a terrible job of explaining this.
    As for which inducements to get, well, that's up to you. Can't really go wrong with an extra apothecary and extra rerolls early on.

    I'm around for league games this afternoon and evening, East Coast USA. I may be in and out of other games, but I'm not planning on doing anything time critical so feel free to send me a message on Steam. Just be aware that the Steam overlay doesn't work perfectly if I'm in EQ2, so in that case a PM on the boards may be better.

    Fooms and I got our stunty league game in last night. The first, absolute first thing I did was receive the kick then use my chainsaw on his Krox and rolled double 1's and got stunned. The game just went down hill from there.

    Managed to BH his krox into missing next game. You're welcome whoever has to play him

    Played my stunty game against chrisnl & SesshouBB, who apparently are the same person!

    I ended up winning 1-0 with my goblins. It was a true stunty match with most injuries self-inflicted and crazy plays going horribly wrong. Fun times. :D

    @Banzai5150 is the regular league getting rolled over shortly? Doc and I haven't got our game in. I had a busy weekend and then was sick on Sunday to top it all off so we haven't been able to match up. Not sure how beneficial an extension would be either, unless its a whole week which is probably too much. Being the goblin team I am happy to take a 1-0 loss if you need to roll the week over.

    The stunty match today was pretty hilarious, it started out going extremely well for my flings, but a blocking mistake doomed my first half drive to not score. The second half went well for the goblins and they were stalling before scoring (as any good goblin should!), so I managed to get a 1d block on the stalling goblin and pushed him into the end zone so I would have three turns to attempt to even up the score. Alas, the last two fling turns and the last goblin turn all ended on the first block with a result of attacker down / both down. It was a very amusing match.

    I'm still hopeful to get the match with Tiger Burning done, but I haven't seen him online today at all. Hope everything is alright with him.

    It's strange... The Regular League's week has come to and end, and though I said take time if needed, only one group that was having issues connecting up contacted me to tell me they might be late, yet got it done in time. Now then I can't point fingers to much as I'm in this list of unplayed games, but really? Less than half the games have been played? Are we losing steam for the game? I understand the bad dice as much as the next person, but I really need to know if it's worth my time to try and keep these 3 Leagues running?

    I know several have mentioned Real life causing issues and Nuffle being an ass to them and what not, so we'll be losing people the end of this season. Do we have 3 or 4 people wanting to replace them?
