Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
And so begins our half time, our Secret Weapons get rejected by the Referee, and we are playing gobbos and trolls.


After inconsequential blocks, it's finally time to pick-up ze ball, and guard the ball to the best of our capabilities. Which isn't much. Those two trolls can't do everything themselves!


Alright, let's clear up some space by blitzing that knight. I can't get anybody else there without rolling a dice, and it's a one die. But we have a re-roll!


It's OK, I accounted for this, we have a re-roll, use it! What could go wrong, right?










And another one down and another one down...

Our pogoer is left with no choice but to leap over opposition once again. I want him to have maximum movement to run like wind!


Now I just need one goblin to tell Spoon what to do so he doesn't derp out again






Oh well. At least there's a representative picture of Spoon there. Unfortunate as it is, our Pogoer still couldn't run fast or far enough.


Knight shoryukens our Pogoer to the injury pit. He's just Badly Hurt, so who cares. He'll be able to play again.



Speaking of our injury pit, it looks like this for the time being. That's four players out due to spotted fouls and them being secret weapons. Two are injured, and one is knocked out cold.


Swift is the opposition recovery, and they are already threatening our middle line! It's time for Troll Air Flight #002. Cleared for take-off, Gutstench!


Yes, Yes, YES!!


No no no you stoopid troll! It's OK to injure the gobbo, but not OK to throw him just in front of you!


Somehow I'm starting to think Gutstench may not have the golden throwing arm he desperately needs...



Medic! MEDIIIIIIC!

And Bretonnians break through our lines, with Spoon being stupid once again


My only standing goblin must either run to Gutstench or Spoon, and tell them to throw him on the ball carrier, or blitz the ball carrier. The nasty thing is, I can't activate both trolls with the same gobbo.


Spoon recovers back to this world from his internal, no doubt very beautiful world, and tries his throwing arm. Troll Air Flight #003 is ready for boarding!


He of course fails the first throw roll. The re-roll is spent here, and luckily, despite Spoon being a Loner (means half the time re-rolls don't work), it does the trick.

The Gobbo flies a beautiful parabolic arc to the next square, but lands on his back and gets KOd.


Since it doesn't matter at this point, Gutstench is signalled to attempt a block - alone. Without anybody standing next to him and supervising he actually does what he is told to do.


Yup, that's what the trolls look like most of the time


Brets make it 1-1 to nobody's great surprise


Hey, I'm starting to get a bit worried about the numbers advantage here...




The Bretonnian kick is the worst kind of kick. It lands just inside our part of the pitch, but lies near the middle line.


It also so happens I conveniently positioned Mr. Nobody there.

We have to clear at least one player out, and I reckon the least risk is by just blocking with either troll




Re-roll! RE-ROLL FOR NUFFLE'S SAKE!

What? It actually worked???


Spoon is captured doing what an adult bull troll does in its natural habitat






But that's not enough to remove a player. I need removals, people!

The probable last action of this turn is to pick up the ball.


Which turns out to be an accurate prediction.

Interestingly, Brets fubar it up as well. One gobbo standing next to the knight is enough to disturb or intimidate him, and he fails the pick up twice


Our final action is to pick up the god-forsaken ball, and bring it next to Spoon. Throwing the goblin as far as he can hopefully prevents a further last turn touchdown from Brets.


Unfortunate as it is, picking up the ball seems next to impossible


The final act of the game is for the Brets to get tackled by Spoon


So the game ends in despicable draw. We want more defining numbers here people! We get 40 K to the bank, so that's something, we can buy one more gobbo if we want to. And at the rate this is going, we probably also need to.


Ah, the neutral results...


The dice statistics show an interesting abundance of twos being rolled for the match. Now THAT explains something.

Clearly Enigob is MVP.

As soon as he left the green, the game went tits up.

Apparently, it was a wrong week to start coaching goblins


We will have to see about Enigob in the next game  :lol:

Gotta say this team is awesome. It let's me experience the full emotional scale a human being can feel. In a single game.

I can be cackling like a madman when things go right, yet I'm looking at disbelief when my carefully risk minimized play gets blown to bits by having no-one reliable enough in the team. That is then compounded by me making the worst possible recovery actions, but that's part of learning how to play gobbos.

That second half was amazing  :lol:
Throwing gobbo's seems to be the surefire way to ensure the enemy gets the number advantage

(Any chance of you being able to record a gif or webm of the more spectacular moments? I feel sometimes, just stills dont do this madness justice)


This I think, is our Spooninator troll, doing what he does best, bashing skulls.

Yup, sounds about right.  :nervous:
Yeah!

Here's a snapshot of Spoon being Really Stupid.

Yup, definitely sounds about right.  :nervous:  :shaking:

Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
What the hell is going on in my team? :D :D

Enigob indeed has substantially greater strength (7) than Spoon (5). Except, I don't know if it comes from the muscle or from the hard iron ball. Anyways, the fanatic is actually a two body system who orbit the common center of gravity, and travel through the pitch. To approximate direction of travel. Nobody sees the Fanatic stop spinning the morning star while he is on the pitch. I tend to think that's because he really can't!

I reckon Spoon will look a bit like this in the team breakfast:


There might be something more coming between you two in the next match. But that update will be for tomorrow, been a bit busy today

Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
Today's match is against Chaos, and we get at least one bribe. Early Chaos isn't too bad, but we're goblins!



Yes, we DO want to attack first!




We start with Enigob who advances from the middle of trolls, and ends up a bit to left. Our blitz is reserved for Slayazh.



Whoa! :eek2:  :eek2:



He outright killed one, on the first round! And it was a Chaos Warrior, pretty expensive to replace!
Though, this does give me hope for the match.

Failing to pick up the ball DOES decrease my enthusiasm a notch.


Because of that the gobbo guarding Slayazh gets blitzed


Aaaaand he is knocked out. Surprise surprise!

Pick up the god damn ball! Like your life depends on it! Cause it kinda does


Now would be a good time to use our bombardier. Snapig, throw a bomb to the concentration of enemy units. Yes I know there's one gobbo in the middle of it, he really wishes something to help him!


Let me get this: the opposition player intercepted the bomb, and threw it back to Snapig???


Throw it back gobbo!






That's three down, one of them stunned! Run to safety(?), little gobbo!

Unfortunately, this offense also opened up a direct line to Slayazh, who then gets blitzed and KO'd


Spoon earns his upkeep here by ending the opposition turn pre-maturely.


We, of course, welcome any opportunity to boot people on the ground




For trolls, the opposition doesn't need to be on the ground


Here's a small sequence of Enigob swinging the ball. That's a Chaos Warrior


Here's the same Enigob swinging the ball. That's Spoon, you are not supposed to block people of your own team dammit!


Here's Enigob doing again the job he is supposed to do. He ties up THREE Chaos Warriors, and even their combined strength isn't enough, it would STILL be a two dice against block against him! Note that the Chaos Warriors are neatly lined, and this is exactly what Fanatic wants. It's a guaranteed block on one of them  ;7


Unfortunately, Enigob still has problems capitalizing on these opportunities


What we want to do is to instill fear on opposition of falling to the ground. The only thing that guarantees is a goblin jumping on top of you


Here's a stylish turnover caused (for once) by Gutstench


Our advance then HEAVILY depends on the troll Gutstench realizing he HAS to move forwards. He doesn't.  :hopping: Here we go with a STR2 cage. Whoppee!


Here Enigob swings the morningstar once again on (now prone) Spooninator.


The attempts to reinforce the pogoer further in the enemy back field are abruptly stopped by a well placed tackle by this beast man


Those hooves aren't a joke! The gobbo breaks a leg!


The enemy responds with a blitz threatening the ball carrier cage


Their next block kills the gobbo Toptra


It's now all up to this, the pogoer MUST make this dodge to score. He has dodge skill, so he will re-roll the failed dodge automatically. That means 67% is actually 83% chance of making it.


He rolls double ones.




And that was our first action. This means the rest of the team is in dangerous positions and will receive some flak.



Enemy spends a re-roll and manages to pick-up the ball


Miraculously, a single goblin stops the onslaught. He gets knocked out in the process, but hey, he literally took one for the team!


Alright alright, we still have a plan. It's not a good plan, but it's all we got. We get one goblin to assist a blitz of the opposition ball carrier and hope for a miracle scatter on our gobbos. Our pogoer does the blitz.


Oh NO NO NO NO! Re-roll that one!




Yup, you sure got him down, but you aren't there to receive the ball anymore you silly little pogoer!







Surprisingly, the audience doesn't tear that gobbo to shreds. However, Enigob here makes a well timed tackle with the morningstar. I don't how the hell you did that, but bloody well done!


It's half time now, and the first half was a massive downer of not getting the score. But we did dash out some damage finally.


Unfortunate as it is, Slayazh remains knocked out... our only secret weapon available is Enigob


After a careful discussion and consultation of the Living Rulebook, the referee agrees it's OK to keep him on the pitch for the second half!

Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
Alright. Second half, and the Referee accepted the bribe. Snapig is ejected as expected...



WHERE THE HELL IS ENIGOB???


And then it dawned on me

There was one bribe, and the first one that was asked was not Enigob. It was Slayazh. He's still lying in the KO'd box! So we bribed the Referee so that Slayazh could continue his nap in the KO box.



Being a bit underpowered and the kick being once again short, it's time for desperate measures with Troll Air


The pass works, but the gobbo fails his landing. That's not a reason for a turn over, but that means the gobbo didn't get anything useful done anyways.


We reinforce the area. Run through the tackle zones, you're stunty anyways!


The pogoer can then blitz the ball carrier with one die


The results start to be a bit predictable. Re-roll that!






Gutstench is the immediate target of opportunity


Aaaand the troll is out. I repeat, the troll is out


It's desperate measures again, and I'm desperate enough to let Spoon blitz


He rolls pushes. And our turn is then abruptly ended by a failed dodge.


Which is paid by Squisniv


They advance, and the only player I have left is a single gobbo, going uphill against a beastman. It's do or die now, so go go gobbo!


Nope, not good enough. Re-roll!






Most of our players get knocked down, but none is out. There's only one gobbo standing of the entire team. He must make the next blitz, again uphill




Re-roll that one!





Thankfully, our blight is mercifully ended by the beastman scoring




You know what's the funny part? Slayazh is STILL having his nap!


The team is getting a bit thin wouldn't you say?


CRRRAAAAAP!




Yeah, run under the ball you just kicked


Here comes the blitz






Quick, get to that ball, and pass it to the gobbo next to Spoon!






Aaand here comes the punishment


Wait, was that the last gobbo next to Spoon?


Yes, yes he was. There's only one more standing, and the opponent has already caged up. You know the moment, where you know you are gonna lose, but you still have to go forwards with grim determination?


Well, why not roll a double skull while at it?


Let's try a blitz this turn


And it's a double skull. I'm sort of getting a tingling feeling Nuffle is trying to tell something...  :lol:






The injury box seems to be filling once again


It's our last turn, and Slayazh is still sleeping. The plan is consolidation touch down. To accomplish that, Spoon must be freed of that Chaos Warrior. It's a one die blitz


Yes!

The pogoer must now pick up the ball, and pass it to the gobbo next to Spoon




Yes!

Now, Spoon must pick-up the gobbo and throw him to the opposition back field


It's inaccurate, but does have sufficient range! Yes!


Run to the touchdown line, little one! Curse you Nuffle, you have taken so much from us, but this one you shall not!










.... He tripped over his feet just at the finish line

And we were thoroughly beaten


CRAAAAAP!


Hey, Spoon is the MVP!


And this is what our team looks like now


Wait, where's the gobbo who got MVP from the last match?



That's the one who got killed
