Title: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
Post by: Mika on October 26, 2017, 07:30:54 pm
Blood Bowl II got a massive update with several new races, most of them being in the harder end of the challenge spectrum. Included is a race that is just begging to be played in the HLP, and this is ladies and gentlemen, not Orcs, but Goblins.

So what are Goblins? Basic Goblins are relatively weak and fairly limited in their skill selections and get rolled over pretty much by everyone. Goblins have Pogoer as a ball carrier. His main ability is to jump over players with Leap. Also, as a team they rely very heavily on the random number generator (known as the god Nuffle in Blood Bowl), far more so than other races I've been playing. So I'm won't be able to steamroll the AI like last time.

What makes the goblins specifically stand out, are these things:


All Secret Weapons can only stay on the pitch for one drive. After that the Referee spots them, and gives a red card. That's also where bribing comes in handy.

So yes, this time it's Nuffle be praised! Gobbos are going to get injured and horribly maimed, and frankly, it's a sacrifice I'll have to make. There's more of you where you came from, and Goblin lives are cheap (40 000 gold to be exact).


Anyone interested in a community play? Answer the questions three:

1) What is your name?

2) What is your favorite color?

3) What is the position you would like to play?

Is this an active contribution role or just offer up my name for the slaughter?

If the latter:

You can contribute actively, or you can offer your name for the slaughter. I'm fine with both, so either one works.  ;7

Let's see what kind of meta game gets built up this time.

Meet your alter-ego

Stop sitting on your morning star and get back to swinging that morning star!


Note your strength (STR) is 7. You outstrength our STR 5 Trolls from the start... While STR 3 is the norm for most players.

The thing is, since both of your hands are doing their best to keep the ball under control, you can't play ball (No Hands skill). The other ball I mean.

Do Goblins have Blitzers?
Title: Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
Post by: Mika on October 28, 2017, 01:52:56 pm
Eh...

There's no dedicated player called Blitzer in the team. A couple of the players can and will take that role in this playthrough. The obvious blitzer out of the box is the Looney with his Chainsaw, but Trolls do that work as well too. Looney fails 1/6 with the Chainsaw backfire, while Troll can be Really Stupid 1/6, so it doesn't make a big difference. And since there will be two Trolls, I think we are going to see several rounds of both Trolls being Really Stupid and scratching their heads, probably at the most crucial situations. Looney is just more likely to injure opposition with the Chainsaw specific +3 on injuries. Troll can get only +1 with Mighty Blow.

Occasionally, situation may call for stacking several goblins around a player and then blitzing with one of the gobbos. Especially if one happens to get block. That's one of the team's specialities; goblins have no normal skill access unless a double is rolled during level-up. So if one of the lil' buggers rolls block, he will be immediately promoted to blitzing duties. He is the most reliable blitzer after all (with STR 2).  :lol:

Obviously, this means any Gobbo levelling twice and not rolling a double is sacked immediately. Don't be sad, it's the lil bugger's reward, he gets to live a normal life.

Of course I'm the thinker of this outfit. See Enigob pensively observing the game, from his comfortable seat....

Can secret weapons characters level up and, if so, what does that offer?

You mean, dinner, right?
Please don't play this game to win, I want hilarity more than winning.
Title: Re: Let's play Blood Bowl II: Legendary Edition
Post by: Mika on October 28, 2017, 03:36:00 pm
I don't think I'll be able to play this with any intent on winning. Never coached goblins before, and they are very random, often leading to situation requiring clutch plays. Besides, I also want to throw some gobbos for ****s and giggles.

Secret Weapon characters CAN level up. The question is, what would be good for them :D

Looney and Fanatic would both benefit from block. Fanatic could use extra movement, or Grab, which allows him to move the players to the direction he wants them to go instead of normal pushback rules. Sure Feet for automatic re-rolling of Go For Its would also be good, it's basically more movement. It just remains to be seen whether we can ever get one that far. Looney is a harder call, he's pretty good straight from the beginning. Side step could make crowd surfing him harder. Mighty Blow with the Fanatic could also be really evil.

From what I've read, few teams are more destructive than goblins when Nuffle is riding with you. Fanatic alone can cause five injuries in the first round he is active, though that's very improbable. If Nuffle is not with you, then it's a bit different...

Post by: Mika on November 04, 2017, 01:02:02 pm
Alright, first two matches are done. I have to say that goblins are indeed VERY unpredictable. Basically everything you do is a risk.

The best part here is that I can play for the win, but it will still look like random things going on :D

Post by: Mika on November 05, 2017, 05:02:04 pm
Alright, we start with the team roster. There's a bunch of gobbos, and some hopefully better players. Oh, and the team name is Flyin' Goblinz'
(https://image.ibb.co/chLkxb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_17_58_16_17_960x540.jpg)

This is how you guys look like. The photo is taken just when the team was created and nobody has died (yet). Just like from the earlier classroom photos!
(https://image.ibb.co/i0edHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_17_58_45_58_960x540.jpg)

We are playing against Bretonnians. Noble knights and dirty peasants and all that. The team is Fearless Crowns Clowns.
(https://preview.ibb.co/nOXyHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_00_09_11_960x540.jpg)

We are playing a team with a lower value, so we get to choose our inducements. In this case, it's two bribes. To keep the Secret Weapons running
(https://image.ibb.co/fDzdHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_00_49_78_960x540.jpg)

The stadium is called GobboAir Platz
(https://image.ibb.co/mkXLVw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_01_18_77_960x540.jpg)

Here's a team presentation picture that seemed interesting. A chainsaw running on whale oil produces hefty smoke, it even looks like Slayazh has a beard, but that's smoke!
(https://image.ibb.co/iC40Vw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_01_40_62_960x540.jpg)

Enigob Skullbasha swings that ball, and knocks down dirty peasants. No injuries or KOs, unfortunately
(https://image.ibb.co/mvsXcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_07_13_67_960x540.jpg)

The first blood is drawn with this blitz from a totally normal Puny Goblin #1
(https://image.ibb.co/cROG3G/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_07_27_28_960x540.jpg)

But he manages to surprise the mighty knight by doing a roll. The knight wastes critical 200 milliseconds gaping the goblin with his maw open.
(https://image.ibb.co/jSvkxb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_07_44_60_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/e5EpOG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_07_50_98_960x540.jpg)

And that's a clear mission kill. The knight breaks his back on the way down. That guy wont be playing Blood Bowl ever again!

We humiliate Brets even further on Turn #2 by surfing their Sancho Pancha
(https://image.ibb.co/mB9OiG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_10_08_77_960x540.jpg)

(https://preview.ibb.co/ninXcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_10_16_41_960x540.jpg)

To finalize the deal, our Bombardier throws a bomb to a peasant.
(https://image.ibb.co/c5sb3G/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_12_03_74_960x540.jpg)

But he fumbles the pass, and the bomb explodes next to his feet, knocking him out for good. And he's now out for the entire match! Slayazh counts his lucky marbles that he is still alive and well, as he was pretty close to the epicenter of the explosion.
(https://image.ibb.co/dbVkxb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_12_17_52_960x540.jpg)

Meanwhile, our Pogoer did a bit of run away play, and gets blitzed
(https://image.ibb.co/caXLVw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_12_50_43_960x540.jpg)

Luckily, this blitzer stumbles on the last possible meter and comes falling down
(https://preview.ibb.co/hGp0Vw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_12_55_16_960x540.jpg)

It's re-rolled, but the resulting block dice say Pogoer stays where he is. Whew!
(https://image.ibb.co/kNYiiG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_13_06_71_960x540.jpg)

Slayazh offers help with his Chainsaw
(https://image.ibb.co/g9mscb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_14_35_03_960x540.jpg)

But he fails(!) to break armor! How the hell do you manage that with a Chainsaw???

Enigob is flaying his morning star, but the reason you haven't seen a lot of mentions about it is because even if he has been successful in hitting, he hasn't particularly managed to deal damage with it. Here's a momentary shot where he stuns a peon.
(https://image.ibb.co/hgAJHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_15_18_94_960x540.jpg)

The Pogoer is a lone wolf, and once again goes alone. He utilizes all the potential stored energy of the spring, and leaps over the knight.
(https://image.ibb.co/bZ4OiG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_15_42_46_960x540.jpg)

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

(https://image.ibb.co/ndEOiG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_16_45_45_960x540.jpg)

Spoon, could you hit them vewy woughly next time? So that they stay out?! Capiche?

Slayazh is pissed off with the knight's weapon carrier, and attempts to saw him. He fails.
(https://image.ibb.co/b740Vw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_18_32_86_960x540.jpg)

However, our upfield protector goblin (haha!) has had enough, and boots the player laying on the field. Preferably there where it hurts

(https://image.ibb.co/m4bfVw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_20_22_52_960x540.jpg)

Unfortunately, the referee is a spoil sport clean game Lemmy, and gives a red card for that behavior. Not on his pitch he says. Remind me to make sure that he needs the services Referee Protection Program after the match.
(https://image.ibb.co/e8TG3G/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_20_31_45_960x540.jpg)

Pogoer has had enough of the incompetence (there were several near misses on this turn) and runs over the finish line
(https://image.ibb.co/hN9dHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_21_57_36_960x540.jpg)

Oh hells no he didn't do that!
(https://image.ibb.co/cr7Xcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_22_05_60_960x540.jpg)

Also, meet our charming cheerleaders
(https://preview.ibb.co/mOt5xb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_22_13_61_960x540.jpg)

Oh, I sort of forgot that the Referee spots the Secret Weapons after they have been on a pitch for one drive. That means I'll have to draw out the games in future until Turn 8 so that the Secret Weapons have a chance to stay on the pitch for the second period.
(https://image.ibb.co/jUgEqw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_22_40_09_960x540.jpg)

Let's see if our clean game Lemmy can resist the lucrative call of personal profit.
(https://image.ibb.co/g0RKOG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_22_42_57_960x540.jpg)

He can't for Slayazh, so he will be on the pitch for the next two turns more.

And he can't for Enigob either.
(https://preview.ibb.co/mY02cb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_22_51_60_960x540.jpg)

It's about God damn time Lemmy!

Then disaster strikes. The ball lands immediately next to the middle line, and the bloody Bretonnians catch the ball straight from the air. We don't have any players there, as I intentionally withdrew them closer to the center. That may have been a mistake :D
(https://image.ibb.co/eNShcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_23_43_46_960x540.jpg)

The team responds immediately by swarming the area. Slayazh manages to KO one. You have to roll one better Slayazh, to keep the opposition players off the pitch for the ENTIRE game!
(https://image.ibb.co/iV8oHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_24_53_10_960x540.jpg)

Our second troll Gutstench then performs the first GobboAir flight. It's a bit annoying that the range of the flight is just one short of reaching the intended destination, the ball carrier. Well, go there anyways.
(https://image.ibb.co/nddoHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_26_38_17_960x540.jpg)

Yes, yes, he's flying!
(https://image.ibb.co/cOrm3G/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_26_41_26_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/jhhFxb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_26_47_05_960x540.jpg)

Wait, wut???? So lemme get this straight - Gutstench managed to throw the goblin, but he threw him inaccurately. The gobbo landed directly on top of Slayazh, and knocked him out for good.

(https://i.makeagif.com/media/12-24-2015/GkVyiL.gif)

Out-effing-standing

Further madness results in the knight getting blocked several times in a sequence, but not getting knocked down. The only option was then to surround him
(https://image.ibb.co/gcN4qw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_30_28_58_960x540.jpg)

Here's a snapshot of Spoon being Really Stupid. C'mon troll, it's not that hard! You only had to hit him vewy woughly!
(https://image.ibb.co/jzXhcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_31_59_93_960x540.jpg)

Gutstench shows how it's done
(https://image.ibb.co/d5Nhcb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_32_17_74_960x540.jpg)

We then get a knock down on a yeoman
(https://image.ibb.co/fAaPqw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_32_52_97_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/bKtoHb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_33_00_08_960x540.jpg)

It's gotta be that roll that confuses them!

Finally, we boot one knight conveniently lying down. That doesn't do anything.
(https://image.ibb.co/dunFxb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_33_21_40_960x540.jpg)

As planned. It's all because of my contract. We are looking to make things impressive for the sponsors, not end the game in like five minutes.

Also I may have been..."incentivised" to not kill Bretonians.

I will neither confirm nor deny.

That meme was... unexpected. Cracked me up for good :D

You'll also need to earn that bigger morning star! They aren't exactly cheap you know.

What it comes to the unladen airspeed velocity of a goblin vs Kirk, it's also about where the said projectile hits. Kirk hits slightly above abdomen and that's transferred to the backwards movement of the guards. Gutstench threw the goblin chest first on Slayazh's head, which is naturally supported by the spine and which doesn't fold or move away just like that. I reckon the gobbo landing on another gobbo is gonna hurt more!

And so begins our half time, our Secret Weapons get rejected by the Referee, and we are playing gobbos and trolls.
(https://image.ibb.co/kcLvXb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_34_20_82_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/gcNndG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_37_08_87_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/irr2Cb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_39_51_54_960x540.jpg)

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

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!

Knight shoryukens our Pogoer to the injury pit. He's just Badly Hurt, so who cares. He'll be able to play again.
(https://image.ibb.co/h7xndG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_43_53_08_960x540.jpg)


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.
(https://image.ibb.co/mFdtJG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_45_12_01_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/gs62Cb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_47_57_11_960x540.jpg)

Yes, Yes, YES!!
(https://image.ibb.co/iCqJkw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_48_02_51_960x540.jpg)

No no no you stoopid troll! It's OK to injure the gobbo, but not OK to throw him just in front of you!
(https://image.ibb.co/gJdSdG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_48_07_05_960x540.jpg)

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

(https://image.ibb.co/hCQUsb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_48_11_93_960x540.jpg)

Medic! MEDIIIIIIC!

And Bretonnians break through our lines, with Spoon being stupid once again
(https://image.ibb.co/caE0yG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_50_00_85_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/h9LJkw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_50_25_85_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/buQvXb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_50_39_02_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/iaxLyG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_50_50_39_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/cNSLyG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_51_06_20_960x540.jpg)

Yup, that's what the trolls look like most of the time
(https://image.ibb.co/m9XLyG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_51_32_95_960x540.jpg)

Brets make it 1-1 to nobody's great surprise
(https://image.ibb.co/eqVjQw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_51_36_09_960x540.jpg)

Hey, I'm starting to get a bit worried about the numbers advantage here...
(https://image.ibb.co/bZvJkw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_51_54_80_960x540.jpg)

(http://images.huffingtonpost.com/2015-03-12-1426176474-9163326-CrapEveryWhere-thumb.jpg)

The Bretonnian kick is the worst kind of kick. It lands just inside our part of the pitch, but lies near the middle line.
(https://image.ibb.co/fge0yG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_52_56_89_960x540.jpg)

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

(https://image.ibb.co/m2u0yG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_53_17_63_960x540.jpg)

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

What? It actually worked???
(https://preview.ibb.co/ebvjQw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_05_43_960x540.jpg)

Spoon is captured doing what an adult bull troll does in its natural habitat
(https://image.ibb.co/hVUpsb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_10_15_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/dQ7aXb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_10_87_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/hRwfyG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_11_86_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/gmOSdG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_23_97_960x540.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/nMS9sb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_54_57_55_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/gT3SdG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_55_34_88_960x540.jpg)

Unfortunate as it is, picking up the ball seems next to impossible
(https://image.ibb.co/bypdkw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_55_38_58_960x540.jpg)

The final act of the game is for the Brets to get tackled by Spoon
(https://image.ibb.co/d4eYJG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_56_34_77_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/iqvUsb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_57_04_70_960x540.jpg)

Ah, the neutral results...
(http://s2.quickmeme.com/img/e1/e162134d7f668b0b7ed0897c3dac3f7102089382e8a7112f7d801d9656528c6a.jpg)

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

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.

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:

Today's match is against Chaos, and we get at least one bribe. Early Chaos isn't too bad, but we're goblins!

(https://image.ibb.co/fJVV0w/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_18_59_14_97_960x540.jpg)

Yes, we DO want to attack first!
(https://image.ibb.co/e8HXDG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_00_03_84_960x540.jpg)

(https://preview.ibb.co/d86QYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_00_54_32_960x540.jpg)

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

(https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/c3/81/9d/c3819da30292108580127057e0a0d10f.gif)

Whoa! :eek2:  :eek2:

(https://image.ibb.co/m7GQYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_02_54_44_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/f5OTnb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_03_32_16_960x540.jpg)

Because of that the gobbo guarding Slayazh gets blitzed
(https://image.ibb.co/dYZCDG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_04_23_84_960x540.jpg)

Aaaaand he is knocked out. Surprise surprise!

Pick up the god damn ball! Like your life depends on it! Cause it kinda does
(https://image.ibb.co/iLvkYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_04_52_76_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/kXrQYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_05_25_15_960x540.jpg)

Let me get this: the opposition player intercepted the bomb, and threw it back to Snapig???
(https://gifimage.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/bomb-gif-16.gif)

Throw it back gobbo!
(https://image.ibb.co/hLjetG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_05_50_92_960x540.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/bZ3uSb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_08_28_92_960x540.jpg)

Spoon earns his upkeep here by ending the opposition turn pre-maturely.
(https://image.ibb.co/fCdTnb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_08_54_14_960x540.jpg)

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

For trolls, the opposition doesn't need to be on the ground
(https://preview.ibb.co/cBAkYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_12_20_22_960x540.jpg)

Here's a small sequence of Enigob swinging the ball. That's a Chaos Warrior
(https://image.ibb.co/nyMESb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_13_33_50_960x540.jpg)

Here's the same Enigob swinging the ball. That's Spoon, you are not supposed to block people of your own team dammit!
(https://image.ibb.co/bx5KtG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_13_49_39_960x540.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/cOVV0w/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_16_26_46_960x540.jpg)

Unfortunately, Enigob still has problems capitalizing on these opportunities
(https://image.ibb.co/gkzvYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_16_40_88_960x540.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/moDNDG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_18_34_89_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/fHCFYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_18_49_40_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/mqXFYG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_19_27_42_960x540.jpg)

The attempts to reinforce the pogoer further in the enemy back field are abruptly stopped by a well placed tackle by this beast man
(https://image.ibb.co/eJZjSb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_20_02_63_960x540.jpg)

Those hooves aren't a joke! The gobbo breaks a leg!
(https://image.ibb.co/f6UjSb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_20_09_75_960x540.jpg)

The enemy responds with a blitz threatening the ball carrier cage
(https://image.ibb.co/jOe7fw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_20_40_27_960x540.jpg)

Their next block kills the gobbo Toptra
(https://preview.ibb.co/fdwnfw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_21_35_08_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/c6vPSb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_21_56_30_960x540.jpg)

He rolls double ones.

(https://preview.ibb.co/bT7tLw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_22_00_53_960x540.jpg)

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

(https://preview.ibb.co/ks300w/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_22_13_00_960x540.jpg)

Miraculously, a single goblin stops the onslaught. He gets knocked out in the process, but hey, he literally took one for the team!
(https://image.ibb.co/eE5DLw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_22_38_97_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/gR2tLw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_23_14_96_960x540.jpg)

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.

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!

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

Git oudda mi way, ya stoopid troll!

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!

Unfortunately, Enigob still has problems capitalizing on these opportunities

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

Alright. Second half, and the Referee accepted the bribe. Snapig is ejected as expected...

(https://image.ibb.co/iN88oG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_25_19_76_960x540.jpg)

WHERE THE HELL IS ENIGOB???
(https://image.ibb.co/kH6Hhb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_26_17_76_960x540.jpg)

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.

(https://media1.tenor.com/images/9cd502381cb3beed49a5d0b3060cb25d/tenor.gif?itemid=6186534)

Being a bit underpowered and the kick being once again short, it's time for desperate measures with Troll Air
(https://image.ibb.co/kKQA2b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_28_26_13_960x540.jpg)

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.
(https://image.ibb.co/eQFA2b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_28_33_29_960x540.jpg)

We reinforce the area. Run through the tackle zones, you're stunty anyways!
(https://image.ibb.co/jBW6aw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_28_49_22_960x540.jpg)

The pogoer can then blitz the ball carrier with one die
(https://image.ibb.co/nHTV2b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_29_00_03_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/kpPETG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_30_44_84_960x540.jpg)

He rolls pushes. And our turn is then abruptly ended by a failed dodge.
(https://image.ibb.co/jgjsFw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_31_17_33_960x540.jpg)

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!
(https://image.ibb.co/cYkA2b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_33_13_80_960x540.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/eVCwaw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_39_46_01_960x540.jpg)

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?

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
(https://image.ibb.co/c4fGaw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_04_19_44_21_35_960x540.jpg)

Sorry, been busy with Real LifeTM, but it should be over now, at least for a couple of days

The last match, well, we don't talk about the last match. It's just that two of our players are injured, and Secret Weapons can only stay on the pitch for a one drive, until Referee ejects them.
(https://image.ibb.co/kdCxcm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_16_41_01_06_1280x720.jpg)

We're playing lizards, and they have luckily more team value than we do. Cause the money is not enough for Ripper the star player troll, three bribes it is.

Enigob's general reputation of being a team player takes a nose dive here when he accidentally blocks Gutstench the Troll. It's as if he had something against the trolls. I have to select POW since Both Down would KO Enigob. Either way, it's a turn over :lol:

Luckily, our left side guarding gobbo offers a helping leg, and tackles the skink.

A curios blitz target of opportunity manifested itself next to the ball. The skink carrying the ball is next to the side line, and there's a skink right next to him. A push of the left skink will be enough to surf the ball carrier  :lol:
(https://image.ibb.co/dK2xcm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_00_45_45_1280x720.jpg)

The crowd appreciates two surfs in a turn
(https://image.ibb.co/mAUzq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_01_01_31_1280x720.jpg)

You know the deal with Blood Bowl right? If a ball carrier is surfed, the audience kicks the ball, and they can kick it anywhere on the pitch. Or to the audience on the other side of the pitch which will then kick the ball again. You get the idea.
However, if I ever meet the smartass who thought kicking the ball in the middle of a saurus cage was a fun idea, I'm going to feed him to squiggs.  :mad:
(https://image.ibb.co/cxEXA6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_01_21_31_1280x720.jpg)

The surf attempt of the last skink fails to double skulls, and is re-rolled in an attempt to get a better handle of the ball

Check this gobbo bull**** out. The following move is about trying whether it is possible to pick up the ball from the middle of a couple of tackle zones, and escape with it to the enemy back field. He needs to accomplish a 33% pick-up, a dodge, and at least two 67% dodges to get out completely after that. It would be extremely unlikely he would pull this off, right?

Gobbo bull**** at its finest.

Of course, our opponent is attempting to intercept. Except it doesn't really work that well for them either
(https://image.ibb.co/dcS5xm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_03_08_15_1280x720.jpg)

That gets re-rolled, but the results is somewhat hilarious. Here's a gobbo knocking down a saurus
(https://image.ibb.co/eCaEq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_03_16_30_1280x720.jpg)

And this time you wont be able to reach the ball carrier!
(https://image.ibb.co/ei7uq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_04_18_57_1280x720.jpg)

Well except for that. Re-roll!
(https://image.ibb.co/ii53iR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_04_23_09_1280x720.jpg)

Slayazh tries another strategy near the center of the pitch. He attacks a saurus from behind!

It's a beautiful KO!

Oh, there's really a path to the ball carrier? How did I miss that???
(https://image.ibb.co/f480V6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_06_00_61_1280x720.jpg)

Aand it was a knock down. What else would it have been? Slayazh, there's a weakly armored skink in your vicinity. You know what to do!
(https://image.ibb.co/kUzkxm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_06_47_19_1280x720.jpg)

Yes yes yes!

Hur hur hur!  :lol:

Unfortunately, the saurus that blitzed our ball carrier did not finish the job. It's well within gobbo's movement range to pick up the ball and score.
(https://image.ibb.co/kPeJHm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_07_20_10_1280x720.jpg)

This, however, is not particularly good. The KOs woke up, dangit! Hit them harder boyz!
(https://image.ibb.co/kDr9OR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_07_48_64_1280x720.jpg)

This is also not very good. The troll is out for the game
(https://image.ibb.co/duoZq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_07_51_74_1280x720.jpg)

To avoid the mistakes done in the last match, I'll reserve at least one bribe for the second half so that at least one secret weapon remains on pitch. It gets to be Slayazh.

Unfortunately, we don't have enough bribes for Enigob to stay on the pitch for second half. He gets a red card, and is out.

Second half, and we're receiving  :shaking:

(https://image.ibb.co/esAdHm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_11_13_93_1280x720.jpg)

And the greedy bastard is about to eject Slayazh - again
(https://image.ibb.co/erOLV6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_11_21_37_1280x720.jpg)

Our kick is a short one. But it does provide entertainment value in a sense that the ball landed on a saurus who failed to catch it (AGI 1). Let's all point at him and laugh!
(https://image.ibb.co/eXH3iR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_12_22_41_1280x720.jpg)

In an attempt to get things under control, the ball carrier skink gets blitzed with no results to speak of
(https://image.ibb.co/iJaZq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_14_58_04_1280x720.jpg)

The game gets a bit messy on the next turn as lizards swarm the region, but there's a hole for Slayazh to slip by
(https://image.ibb.co/e0xEq6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_18_22_75_1280x720.jpg)

Unfortunately he fails to knock down a relatively unarmored skink.

Further blocks do not work particularly well either. Yes, it got re-rolled to more of the same
(https://image.ibb.co/gwTyHm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_19_13_82_1280x720.jpg)

The opponent doesn't get to capitalize much either, they fail a pick-up roll, unfortunately their re-roll works
(https://image.ibb.co/eunscm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_19_36_42_1280x720.jpg)

Now that did look impressive!

A couple of gobbos go up in the field in anticipation of the ball carrier arriving there.
(https://image.ibb.co/kfKzOR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_22_54_99_1280x720.jpg)

Our pogoer, in truest Super Mario fashion, Leaps over opposition, and fails his landing roll. That's a re-roll!

It's unfortunate that he sort of runs out of movement allowance before getting to the safety of the couple of gobbos upfield.  :lol: The response is swift and decisive

Pretty much the only thing we can do is to add another player next to Gutstench so that he will not go dumb on the next turn
(https://image.ibb.co/hp6qV6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_26_01_30_1280x720.jpg)

This Gutstench rewards with a well placed wrist punch to the snout(?) of the saurus. It's a stun!
(https://image.ibb.co/cxeYiR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_28_17_67_1280x720.jpg)

The skinks take advantage of the open left side of the pitch. Here's the last chance to halt their advance with a blitz
(https://image.ibb.co/eXk63R/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_28_45_47_1280x720.jpg)

Of course you do
(https://image.ibb.co/gzxaxm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_28_50_13_1280x720.jpg)

Not surprisingly the round after that sees the opposition smacking any gobbo they meet (without breaking armor, luckily), and skinks advance. The only option is to hope for a miracle tackle, 'cause there's nothing that can reach that skink in our arsenal.
(https://image.ibb.co/cXEoHm/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_30_19_99_1280x720.jpg)

For some damage control, Gutstench is asked to blitz a skink without anyone instructing him how to do that
(https://image.ibb.co/kmsKOR/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_30_32_02_1280x720.jpg)

He rolls actually quite well, but can't break the skink's armor unfortunately. Meanwhile, this is how our bench looks like at the moment.
(https://image.ibb.co/dqzcA6/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_31_07_20_1280x720.jpg)

And they score

Slayazh gets there too. One troll short, very little damage done to the lizards, it ain't looking good

Here's the plan. A gobbo back field picks up the ball, passes it to the gobbo next to Gutstench, and Gutstench will then throw the said gobbo to opposition back field? Everybody got that? Good!

Luckily, it's a dud, and the gobbo remains at play

Now, our play is changed to passing the ball to the pogoer. To even the odds, a skink must be blitzed to make the catch roll at least somewhat feasible. A push is enough.

Alright, my travels for this year are pretty much done at this point and I can concentrate on the game for a chance  ;7

So, we're going against the Drunken Axes, but first things first. If you get hit and get a permanent injury, you fly out of the team. It's for your own good naturally, we are only thinking about that here at the team management!

This is bull**** in its finest. A norse lineman blocks Gutstench, two red dice, and in both of them, Gutstench goes down.
(https://image.ibb.co/m6zVHw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_56_37_58_1280x720.jpg)

But our gobbos are starting to get the hang of things bit by bit
(https://image.ibb.co/kLYeAG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_58_34_85_1280x720.jpg)

And remember, any moment somebody goes down, there's always an eager gobbo with a specific evil glint in his eye, ready to kick the fallen to where it really hurts
(https://image.ibb.co/ddMAHw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_17_58_45_49_1280x720.jpg)

I'm seeing the game is developing to a direction I don't want it to go, we don't have the gobbo power at the left flank, and that's where the Norse are. Spoon, could you throw that gobbo to knock down the ball carrier?
(https://image.ibb.co/mMoPcw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_02_02_48_1280x720.jpg)

No? Fine then, have it your way!

Can I get at least another troll to breath on their necks?
(https://image.ibb.co/j4Exxw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_02_19_28_1280x720.jpg)

Finally, the bomberman throws a bomb to the Norse bunch. Let's see what they think of it
(https://image.ibb.co/fZRzAG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_03_26_05_1280x720.jpg)

It does nothing, but at least we get to boot a player
(https://image.ibb.co/gaHvjb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_03_35_92_1280x720.jpg)

Seems as if this particular gobbo would be a bit too interested of the half naked Norse lying on the ground
(https://image.ibb.co/fEkFjb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_03_40_28_1280x720.jpg)

Stomping on the prone Norse knocks him out. Good!
(https://image.ibb.co/i5CHxw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_03_47_27_1280x720.jpg)

Seeing the foul, the referee is always ready to cash in on the dividends. Greedy bastard
(https://image.ibb.co/mX0gPb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_03_59_56_1280x720.jpg)

Norse get to punch gobbos too. Say, is that a beer or "spirit" tankard hanging on the belt?
(https://image.ibb.co/hJHT4b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_05_10_98_1280x720.jpg)

Well, we KO one, they KO one so I guess that's fair?

Here, Spoon punches Cnut the Ulfwerener. No, that's not a typo, it's in that order. Cnut is probably some very old form writing of nowadays Knut, but it does make me wonder where Cyanide (devs) picks up these names
(https://image.ibb.co/hWB5jb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_06_02_07_1280x720.jpg)

Gutstench fails a blitz by being Really Stupid here.
(https://image.ibb.co/g2vbqG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_06_27_00_1280x720.jpg)

Re-roll!
(https://image.ibb.co/iocBPb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_06_54_92_1280x720.jpg)

Those who like damage, take not that Gutstench broke the Ulfwerener's wrist. Soooo, the Norse have weak wrists? Mika writes down...
(https://image.ibb.co/kfaFjb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_06_58_97_1280x720.jpg)

In case you have been wondering what actually happened on the pitch, it's that we couldn't stop the Norse progress on the left flank, and they score.
(https://image.ibb.co/jeP84b/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_07_50_78_1280x720.jpg)

If you eat your meats and fats, you may become as strong as Audunn here! You know, just like us all here in the north are!

The damage dealt so far one dead Viking and one Badly Hurt Viking. The ulfwerener injured by Gutstench was saved by the Apothecary re-roll. Sometimes those quacks manage to be competent. We the gobbos don't use such quackery.
(https://image.ibb.co/mO8CVG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_08_10_53_1280x720.jpg)

And our secret weapon Snapig is thrown out from the pitch by the Referee. Nope, I'm not gonna bribe him, as our Slayazh and Enigob didn't step on the pitch so far at all, and I want them to be able to participate on the next two drives.
(https://image.ibb.co/h6GAHw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_08_30_18_1280x720.jpg)

Spoon rolls defender stumbles for a chance, and gets a chance to injure a Norse

Stop that grinning troll, it's gonna bite back on your ass at some point!

Now there's one badly hurt Viking
(https://image.ibb.co/b8nvjb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_11_01_01_1280x720.jpg)

Then we boot the Norse thrower too

(https://image.ibb.co/gwkgPb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_12_01_62_1280x720.jpg)

Hey, there's a runner on our left flank. No, you ain't gonna get that easy out of this today!
(https://image.ibb.co/jf6Kcw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_16_18_60_1280x720.jpg)

The crowning moment of this drive is Gutstench becoming Really Stupid despite having an assistant, which also happens to waste our blitz of this turn.
(https://image.ibb.co/nqXEAG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_19_06_29_1280x720.jpg)

Which is followed by Spoon becoming Really Stupid attempting to block the Ulfwerener.
(https://image.ibb.co/c4CgqG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_19_29_22_1280x720.jpg)

What could I do without you guys?

Since there's not much I could do anymore, it's time to end this drive with four opposition casualities, with one of them being a death
(https://image.ibb.co/eGJ4AG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_20_12_41_1280x720.jpg)

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 five wounded. Four injured and one dead.

(https://image.ibb.co/cvzRfG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_20_31_42_1280x720.jpg)

The first thing we do at the beginning of second drive is of course to bribe the referee.

Nope, Enigob stays too, Referee!

(https://image.ibb.co/i5SjZb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_20_53_57_1280x720.jpg)

Well, then it's just normal formation planning and the kick off, and say whaaaaaat?

(https://image.ibb.co/eYFGfG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_21_31_07_1280x720.jpg)

I suppose it's either a stun or a knock down as these things usually are... WUT?

(https://image.ibb.co/muVGfG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_21_34_96_1280x720.jpg)

Holy crap! The audience CAN actually kill your player right at the beginning of a match!

(https://image.ibb.co/cZVGfG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_21_39_04_1280x720.jpg)

That's all we are going to see of Cnut 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!
(https://image.ibb.co/dGAGfG/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_22_27_37_1280x720.jpg)

Re-roll saves. The rest of you take normal damage.

I'm actually sort of entertained. You just can't never tell with the goblins!  :lol:

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

Yes, it's up to our pogoer to recover what can be recovered. Which in the case of Skarfen is not much.
(https://image.ibb.co/f5MBEb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_28_51_68_1280x720.jpg)

You know, that's a direct knockdown right there.
(https://image.ibb.co/b8YrEb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_28_57_69_1280x720.jpg)

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 %).
(https://image.ibb.co/ds1BEb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_29_37_41_1280x720.jpg)

It's a re-roll. What did you expect? Gutstench then delivers a knockdown.
(https://image.ibb.co/gW9L7w/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_30_13_21_1280x720.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/jJHZZb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_33_17_64_1280x720.jpg)

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)*!
(https://image.ibb.co/hwcOSw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_34_39_40_1280x720.jpg)

Hey, it's knockdown
(https://image.ibb.co/cx1iSw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_34_44_26_1280x720.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/i4NOSw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_35_01_33_1280x720.jpg)

It isn't a particularly great surprise that one gobbo gets blitzed immediately after
(https://image.ibb.co/hy1uZb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_35_18_77_1280x720.jpg)

However, the runner can't make a lucky escape, a gobbo is always ready to extend that helping leg
(https://image.ibb.co/c9WiSw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_35_28_63_1280x720.jpg)

Two turns left, and we have to stop the runner somehow. Gutstench, do the honors!
(https://image.ibb.co/ePmHnw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_36_12_63_1280x720.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/b9PEZb/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_37_00_53_1280x720.jpg)

(https://image.ibb.co/fae3Sw/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_37_07_64_1280x720.jpg)

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
(https://image.ibb.co/ii0z0G/Blood_Bowl2_DX_32_2017_11_18_18_38_25_91_1280x720.jpg)

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

Doesn't work.

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 :D

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

What scoring method does the BB League use?  3 points for a win, 1 for a tie, 0 for a loss?  Or is it just a loss counts as half a win in the final standings?
