    I'm reading on cyanide's Facebook page that they've blocked access to the servers unless you have chaos edition. Seems a bit extreme. I'm still on holiday so can't confirm.

    Do they expect such a sudden surge of interest that their servers won't be able to handle everything?

    Not true. However, you do need to download a pretty hefty 900 mb update (as you will be competing against Chaos Edition players. You just can't use CE teams).

    Any team value limit? If not, I'll bring back the Pomps for more BS plays with their 1500+ TV (I forget how much exactly, though it's under 1600). If so, I'll start a new High Elves team and sign up with them instead.

    We can always try and reboot the open league. If you guys see me on steam I'm always keen for a game. I've got my lizards, dark elves and vamps available.

    This would skyrocket my total bloodbowl expenditures to 18 dollars over like 2 years or whatever. At this point I don't think I caaaare.

    Sounds about right for Cyanide... lemme fire up LE and see what happens. Yup.. You're version is not Supported.. so no Online for LE. Cyanide you've lost me for good now.

    And with the update installed I can now connect to the servers again. But man, I still feel burned out from running the 3 Leagues so not sure if I'll join in this upcoming one or not. But hell, I'm a glutton for punishment and if you need a body to fill out the League, you know I'll do it.

    Idea for a bi-weekly league first game to played over a Mon-Fri period and a second game over the weekend. No playoffs so you always know who you are playing to schedule games in advance and so no teams sit out a game. Cash prize for the 1st and 2nd ranked teams reduce to compensate for lack of playoffs.

    Alright, i have a few matches with Khorne under my belt, so here are some initial impressions.

    1. This is a very saucy squad. They start with no ball handling skills, and no blocking skills outside of juggernaut. Also, all that frenzy means it is very hard to keep formation, which means a running game will be harder to pull off and you'll need to pass occassionally. A lot can go wrong and khorne coaches will be punished by nuffle over and over.
    2. Heralds are ridiculous blitzers, I can't see blitzing with anyone else. Horns on the other guys are just for desperate times. By far the best piece on the roster, imo.
    3. Letters are alright, AV 7 kind of sucks. I still havent figured out how best to use them. Probably make them my ball carriers, with some of them getting guard to help make up for the teams lack of strength. They probably all need blodge, but i feel like i am missing out on the other skills since they have so much available to them (things like pass, sure hands, catch). I think the most interesting decisions are done with these pieces and if anyone else has advice on them i would love to hear it.
    4. Pit fighters are hilarious. They should put on pants. I don't want to waste their frenzy by making them ball carriers, but they can skill up pretty easily that way. In fact, frenzy is a liability for a ball carrier because you can't do the whole blitz a guy off you reliably. I put leader on my first skill up, block on all the others, and guard on every double. \
    5. Unless i can throw tentacles on it, im avoiding all wild animal pieces. Bloodthirsters make for good inducements, but i don't think i would own one for myself. Plus he costs $Texas and this roster is expensive and fragile.

    Khorne coaches are really going to have to play a smart positional game. If they can't surf the other team, they will be down players in a hurry. Graphically, im a little dissappointed because the letters and heralds look so similar, but i like the actual design of this team. I really need to learn good frenzy positional techniques.

    yeah I joined with a Khorne team, but I'm probably going to drop that for an underworld team.

    Also, Blood Bowl Legendary is on sale for $10, which you then can buy Chaos Edition for $10, effectively making Chaos Edition on sale for $20. Anyone on the fence that doesn't have any blood bowl, jump on this now

    Well, just played my first two matches (on Easy admittedly). Lost the first, tied the second. Logically this must mean I'm gonna win the third.

    Yeah, no. I don't think I quite get this game yet.

    Don't play on Easy as they will always beat you the way the coded the AI. Play on Medium. Hard is retarded.

    My brother has talked me into buying the game (we played a lot of Warhammer, 40k and Necromunda back in the days), but I haven't really given the game a proper chance. The tutorial seems pretty bad and I think I got the basic idea of the game already but is there any good beginner advice I can get from you experienced players?

    If I am planning on getting a good Skaven team together what should I spend my money on initially?

    I'm assuming the best experience of the game is playing online but I think I need to play a season or two against the AI to get the hang of things first.

    So chaos dwarfs are really good. If you take the good parts of a dwarf team and then add a MV 7 ST 4 Sprint Surefeet character to cover all the territory your dwarf island misses. Im really impressed by them, and their beards. They all kind of look like that villain from mario rpg.

    @richard if you look in the OP there should be a link to some play books which should help you start a team.

    *shrug* Difficulty levels are NOT supposed to work that way, but the way Cyanide coded it, it works out that way. Easy plays so conservatively that you have a hard time against them as they never take a risk. Medium takes a few risks and what not making them easier to play. Hard supposedly takes absurd risks and cheats.

    I haven't really picked one yet. Right now I'm just trying out different teams. I'm leaning towards the fast, dodgy ones, but those freakin' elves can't really handle much of a punch.

    Also, when I said I had zero experience, I meant I have zero experience with online play. Not just online Blood Bowl, but online period. I'd need to learn the very basest of basics first.

    We have four folks registered in the league now, just need a couple more teams. TNT, you had some ideas if you want to bounce them off of me for scheduling and stuff id love to hear it. Also, ill appoint everyone as commissioner for quicker validation.

    Wotan, you should make a team and register to the open league, just in case you ever get the urge to play i can have it pre-admitted so you dont have to wait around. You can make as many as you want.

    And id be happy to lay out tips and stuff for you if you'd think you'd like some.
