    The usual BB leagues take forever to play and I can never participate meaningfully because I end up having something job or life related to do. I would be down dedicating a day to doing an 8-man round robin with semifinals and finals at the end. I'm fine playing fumbbl, too.

    Speaking as an Amazon player: This video made me sigh with despair.

    Fudging dwarves.

    Oh Also I suppose I should mention I play this on occasion and feel free to add Albino Bunny on steam if you want.

    Being a natural hermit and scared of new things, I still haven't played online. Though I have managed to eke out a few wins against the computer at last. Granted, it was my Amazons against Halflings, Ogres and Undead, but we all gotta start somewhere, right?

    Still... I think I'm gonna switch over to an elf team. Just not sure which elf team.

    Is the PA league still active? I mean, I don't think I'm ready for any competitive play yet, but I really enjoyed what I've played of the game so far.

    Not really. At least I haven't played a game in ages. I've got a few teams kicking around, so you could just play in one of the open leagues. I'd be keen for a game if you catch me online.

    8 people would be a 14 hr tournie! Since most of my games took about 2hrs.

    We'll see in a bit, I just got my computer back up and running with basically new parts minus a new GPU and Case... I'm going to be spending a few days installing everything and setting it up how I want it so I'll think over it while I do that.

    If you just do a DE playoff style tournie then the most games you will have to play is only 3.

    To everyone complaining about that video, I dare you to endure 20 minutes of this one. I mean, even I couldn't stand so many stupid moves and gave up halfway through, and I'm a noob.

    C'mon. 20 minutes. I dare you.

    This one was great. Mainly because Jesse legitimately had never played before and Sidestrafe did his usual thing of over thinking every move till he got it slightly wrong.

    I actually liked the Dodger vs TB match. Haven't watched Angry Joe's yet, he's supposed to be pretty good (by the leagues standards).

    In classic mode, do I have to be concerned about salaries during the campaign?

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    The salaries of the players increase as they level up. A higher salary means the player is worth more and therefore your team has a higher rating. At higher ratings you start to have "spiraling expenses" which means after each game you have to pay a set amount of money.

    However, to answer your question, not really, it's never been an issue for me.

    You never realistically need to be worried about them. It's more designed as a way to prevent big teams getting even bigger at the same rate than it is to cripple them.

    What is the difference in the background color of the block dice? It either shows 1-3 dices with red or yellow background. I understand that when the dice is red the defender chooses the dice but what does the background color mean?

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Nothing AFAIK.

    Another question, I'm playing a campaign and have money but can't seem to buy more than one apothecary, am I missing something? It says the cost is 50k and I have 200k but I can't add more than one.

    you can only have one apothecary.

    Because otherwise you might be able to save someone from death, and that'd be spoiling it.

  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    Blood Bowl regulations limit teams to only 1 permanent apothecary cause the audience isn't there to watch players throw a ball around unless they are stupid elves.

    Skinks are pretty good at throwing the ball around as well, right?

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Not sure if that's a joke or not, so I'll answer it properly. No, they have -1 to pass because of stunty, and only 3 agil.

    They're good at running around with the ball, at least.

    How much cheating is going on online in this game? My brother told me there was a lot in big leagues where you can choose your matches but is there dice hacks or devious crap like that? I was trying to get in on the PA league but I saw that the last game was in 2012 so perhaps it has died out.

    Add me on Steam if you want to play a game or two.

  • KafkaAUKafkaAU Western AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I haven't played online significantly, but my experience is that it's all legit. You get a few folks who exit out of games when the dice isn't friendly to them, but otherwise it's all good.

    The base online leagues aren't really leagues at all. They are just a place to play games, so you can pick opponents or play against randoms.

    The PA leagues were just like a regular league where the games are mapped out and you can only play mapped out games. There is another option where it is essentially a ffa which gives you more flexibility (I.e. you can use the challenge rule from the rulebook) so if you don't play with trustworthy people there is the potential to abuse it.

    So Cyanide posted something on the BB facebook page today. A picture of a logo which says Blood Bowl II.

    Unless they show something incredible in terms of what it is then I can't see why I'd buy a theoretical Blood Bowl II.

  • Zombie HeroZombie Hero Registered User regular
    All they are missing from the current blood bowl are some of the community made tabletop teams.

    It's laughable how Cyanide is trying to milk this product. It is only good because of the design, and nothing that cyanide has really done. Why not charge 20 more bucks for 4 more teams?

    I'll buy it if there's a community for it and it's on sale for 10 or less, but that's about it.

    I'm so boycotting that developer. Cyanide has completely fucked up the handling of this license, by completely fracturing the player base with a series of stand alone "expansions", with badly implemented match making and shoddy network connections, which requires third party sign in despite being bought through Steam and doesn't use the Steam friend list for invites. Goodwill completely flushed down the drain for me.

    Heard the proposition that RIAA and MPAA should join forces and form "Music And Film Industry Association"?
