    I stopped playing this version of the game when I found my fix in a tabletop league

    If someone wanted to organize something for PC blood bowl though I would be down

    I don't think a PA Blood Bowl PC league has ever successfully finished a season. We did have one come very close though.

    That said, I'd be down for playing if someone wanted to get one going.

    One question though:

    I made a team to play through a league thing, and it didn't tell me how much money I had so I went by memory, and I think I overspent by 10-20k and now my team is marked 'experienced'. What's up with that? Any team I attempted to make in the team manager thing just tells me how much cashola I have and I can't overspend.

    Bunch of new teams in here I've not seen before. Kislev Circus with all those Really Long Legs looks fun as heck. Anyone have any favorites, or are Orks the best for bash, Skaven the best for run, and some flavour of elves for passing (who passes the ball anyhow?)

    It sounds like you made a custom team, which removes the cash limit for team creation. It's a check box during the creation process.

    I've been playing against the AI recently with a new mixed team, but I'd be more than happy to play some games against a person. Those new mixed teams are pretty great.

    My favorite is Goblins, just for pure chaotic fun factor.

  • VeeveeVeevee WisconsinRegistered User regular
    Norse is the best, but you must properly plan your blocks because of all that frenzy.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    My Goblin plan is to just load up on bribes to keep my illegal players in the game for multiple changeovers.

    The one thing that sucks about them is they are countered HARD by Skaven, so much so that it's scary. Normally gutter runners are balanced out by being only 2 strength against typically 3 strength players, giving you at elast 2 dice every block/blitz attempt. That advantage is gone when you're Goblins/Halflings and the runners just swim right past you.

    Because no-one in the Old World of Warhammer actually speaks English and you’re actually watching a dubbed translation from the original Orcish.

    BUT THE LIPS SYNCH UP if you shift the timing aaaah.

    It's just a lack of polish thing that is annoying me. Also, huh, Piling On is not what I remember. Reroll an armour break check if you fail and are adjacent and go prone? It used to be just +3 on armour rolls if you went prone.

    If they’re following the updated League rules for the tabletop game, yeah. Technically it should be the option to use a team re-roll on either an armour check or an injury check.
    Basically Piling On was the most reviled auto-take skill in the game for twenty years and most leagues banned it outright so GW have both scaled it back a bit and made it wholly optional on the tabletop.

    I wish the log was half as readable as it was in BB1. It doesn't even show the result of injury rolls (well, it shows the die results, but not what that roll means).

    I usually take take Piling On for a Norse Blitzers first level (Piling On+Jump Up is quite nice), and I'm pretty sure it has always been a reroll for armour break in video game blood bowl.

    I don't remember it being a problem on xbox one. It's been awhile since I blood bowled the ai in awhile. Actually, it's been awhile since I blood bowled. I was playing a few games a week and even in a league.

    I have put quite a bit of time into the PS4 version and outside of it freezing 6 or 7 times straight going into the final match it is relatively solid. Which version do you have? The legendary or base version? I have the base physical version but I am constantly tempted for the legendary edition.

    I’m on legendary, it’s ubiquitous

    Like every turn it’s at least a minute or so before the AI does a thing

    Damn that isn't happening to me. At least not that consistently. Occasionally it will outright freeze but like I said it is rare. Maybe I should put my disc in and give it a whirl to see what happens.

    Yeah that's my long standing beef with BB. They're insisting on keeping it a "tiered" game when there are some very basic tweaks they could make for a lot of teams to become closer to even.

    It gets real old seeing nothing but Dwarves, Underworld, and Elves in league games.

    Goblins have always been my jam.

    I kind of like how unbalanced it is, sometimes. It makes those times when a halfling team beats dwarves or elves very satisfying.

    But it would be nice if they brought back permanent Halfling Master Chef for halfling teams. It's not like it made them OP or something.
