So yeaahh, then Capcom Cup 2017 happened. But it's back to scheduled Blood Bowl program and we continue the match where we left.
First of, sorry, my mistake, it's
. Four injured and one dead.
The first thing we do at the beginning of second drive is of course to bribe the referee.
Nope, Enigob stays too, Referee!
Well, then it's just normal formation planning and the kick off, and say whaaaaaat?
I suppose it's either a stun or a knock down as these things usually are... WUT?
Holy crap! The audience CAN actually kill your player right at the beginning of a match!
That's all we are going to see of Cn
ut the Hunter in this match. And next.
The first round is abruptedly ended by a troll rolling double skulls. Surprise surpise! Dangit Gutstench, start to get lucky!
Re-roll saves. The rest of you take normal damage.
Ahem. Crap, is this going to be one of those boring injuring Chainsaw blitzes again and I'll have to dig somekind of relevant chainsaw GIF from the internets?
I'm actually sort of entertained. You just can't never tell with the goblins!
You know who punches like a mule, and is barely in control of his trajectory? It's Enigob, who is swinging his ball to opposition blitzer
He just keeps forgetting things at the heat of moment. This time it was that one of our own was lying on the pitch, and got some good-old mornin'star lovin'
Squisniv is injured. Again. It's just a broken jaw so who cares
The opponent continues with the lucky streak. Hey, it's great to see AI rolling double skulls for a chance it's about bloody time...
Okay Spoon. Can u blitz the lino now?
Now that being said, a knock down is not always a guarantee the player can't reach something important. Especially if they can Jump up
Crap. Kinda forgot they could do that. And in the truest Blood Bowl sense, it never happens when you want it to happen. It always happens when you are not ready for it
Dammit Spoon! Couldn't you just like... tackle that guy?
Yes, it's up to our pogoer to recover what can be recovered. Which in the case of Skarfen is not much.
You know, that's a direct knockdown right there.
Well ain't it just grand? Pogoer basically mission killed a blitzer. Forever.
But the Norse have
apothecary. That blitzer is just fiiiiine.
Recover ze ball!
Enigob, dammit! You aren't supposed to roll three skulls in a row! That's like 1 in 81 chance to happen (about 1.2 %).
It's a re-roll. What did you expect? Gutstench then delivers a knockdown.
And our ever vigilant
gobbo delivers the message home. With armored and spiked boots of course.
You know, I'm sort of starting to feel a bit genocidal here? Jawohl!
We take care of one opportunist attempting to sabotage our ball pick up attempts
The pick up naturally
And what? It actually worked??? We have scored!
Inform the other teams that we have scored!
And it's time for moar hubba hubba for those who have requested to see more of it!
So let me count the dead now
Two are ejected, and two injuries. There's one knocked out but who counts those?
Oh. My. God. On ur pitch, rekin' ur team, that's what we do!
Naturally, the Referee is the greedy sort. Even more money? We don't have that, Mac!
And there goes Enigob too.
And then there is a match once in a while where you start to think the game is trolling you on purpose...
You know what Ref? For being such a soil-sport, we are keeping that money off your hands! Whaddya say about that, huh?
The ball landed a bit too close to center line, blitz that Norse! We maybe able to score again *(gasp)*!
Hey, it's knockdown
Hey, I need more gobbos to swarm the ball carrier like the zerglings we are! Go through a couple of tackle zones while you are at it, see if I care
It isn't a particularly great surprise that one gobbo gets blitzed immediately after
However, the runner can't make a lucky escape, a gobbo is always ready to extend that helping leg
Two turns left, and we have to stop the runner somehow. Gutstench, do the honors!
Spoon, now mush boy!
Spoon, you eeediiiot! That's not a place to trip on your own feet! Re-roll!
It's a fail. Typical
For some incomprehensible reason, the ball doesn't move forward, and we are saved from the jaws of defeat once more! Here, Gutstench makes no mistakes, and plays Mr Nice Guy no more
Dun dun dun!
Yeah, I'd feel smug too
Oh boo, we didn't cause a final insult by delivering a stat injury to their player.
The final action is a pick up attempt and a ridiculously low probability vanity pass
Neutral results again with poor winnings. Then again, the gobbos don't need the money. The only thing I have to make sure is that the team isn't worth a penny, and we'll be cruising with Star Player reinforcements in no time!
MVP of the match is Stargog. For god knows what reason
But we did rack up a number of SPPs, courtesy of Armor 7 of Norse. Too bad it's too hot to wear their armors here
The dice log is actually surprisingly even. It sure didn't feel like that. Then again, it's not gobbos who are lying in the injury pit this time.
Regarding the team ranking, it's bottom three of the 24 teams in the tournament.
Oh well, at least Gutstench leveled
He's gonna be a guarding troll. That's right, a guarding troll
Man, we wrecked the opposition and still could not win the game
