btw, 'f13 Season X' has been created in BB Manager, so as usual winner should upload replays there before the match will be validated.

ALSO, I've made Ingmar, Megrim, IainC, and Ruvaldt all into commissioners, so we have more people who can cover match validations or reversals or whatever.

Zetor! It's a long weekend here, so the next three days are our best chance at getting this done. State your preference. I come from the land downunder (Australia) so time zones will be fun.

Zetor! It's a long weekend here, so the next three days are our best chance at getting this done. State your preference. I come from the land downunder (Australia) so time zones will be fun.
Word. I'm CET (GMT+1), and my weekend is mostly open (except for Sunday mid-day/afternoon).

Looking at the timezones, it looks like my saturday/sunday morning is the best option? Something like 5-10am GMT. The xXtreme alternative would be 9pm gmt (your Sunday morning).

NB: This will be my second-ever blood bowl match... and as a bonus, I just got vaccinated against 6 different kinds of deadly diseases yesterday, so I'm sorta high/woozy as shit. OTOH, I'm playing dwarves, so neither of those things really matter.  :why_so_serious:

Yep, Ghana (mar 22 -> mar 28). This also means that I should probably play my second match before then...

e: anyway! Lamaros feel free to prod me today whenever you're ready (I'm Zetor on steam, in f13 group). I should be able to make myself available at any time until midnight GMT (edit: make that 11pm, considering match length etc), post-vaccination grogginess notwithstanding. Tomorrow is a bit iffy... the only real window is going to be 5am->9am GMT. If nothing else works, I can try to make a ~2-hour block free during my Sunday evening, but no guarantees. As a Plan C, we can play during my Monday morning (5-7am GMT) or evening (6-9pm GMT). I'll be out of country for almost the entire next week too, so we should definitely get it done before then...

Ulysees!

- I'm off to sell my old house this Saturday, so that's a bit finicky but perhaps possible in the evening; short notice though.
- Sunday could work?
- Monday through Thursday I have odd hours; I can work myself free during the day until about 4pm, but after that have fencing until 10ish.
- Hrm, actually Thursday is out as my son is getting his teeth pulled.
- Friday is pretty open.  Same with the following Sat and Sun.

I'm on PST btw.

When is best for you?

Ingmar!

We haven't played in a long time.  Drilling and Manliness tournament was the last time?  I'm not sure.  Either way, here we are!  I'm two hours ahead of you so timing shouldn't be hard, and I'm free all Sunday.  Weekdays next week work as well as long as it's close to the evening.

Megrim. If I remember correctly, you are doing time in some penal colony hellscape. I'm not currently employed so I can be awake at whatever inhumane hour you might be around at so let me know when you can play and I'll endeavour to be there too.

I'm GMT so probably have to be played on Sunday - add me as a friend on Steam (same name, Ulysees) and if you confirm your steam name I'll do the same and we can see if times match up, I should be around most of Sunday until midnight so good chance of catching each other at some point as long as we friended in Steam.

Steam invite sent.

Hrm.  GMT... right, time gets funky right about now as places shift to daylight savings on different days.  I think we change this Sunday... so I'll be at UTC -7?  Though I really can slip free during the day Monday-Wednesday, so evening GMT would work fine.

Regardless I'll look for you in the early afternoon (PST) Sunday, though I've a new ISP so there might be some port forwarding issues I need to work out.


PS If you see me playing anything other than Blood Bowl it's probably my wife or kids. ;-)

Punks Not Dead 2 - 0 Star Spawn. Game submitted.

My high points: Foul Appearance kicked in a good 3-4 times, against Wights and Mummies, no less. My Beast of Nurgle managed to do a good job of area denial for much of the game.

My low points: I had a -4 modifier with overlapping Disturbing Presence around the ball, and PND's ghoul swoops in and picks it up with a critical 6 on a reroll. I lost out on 3/4 of the kickoff events.

Good game, though, and it would've been much more competitive if it wasn't for those pesky ghouls!

Disturbing Presence works against Passes, Catches, and Interceptions -- but not Pickups.

Well damn, could've sworn it was against Pickups as well. Even so, he also managed a crucial handoff inside 2 or 3 overlapping Disturbing Presencess, as well, when I was pretty close to breaking through to his ballcarrier.

Easy detail to overlook, especially with such an uncommon skill!  I'm sort of dreading trying to play against you with Pro Elves, so I was checking it out carefully.

Had my fingers crossed you'd be in the other division, but alas! ;-)

Skyjackers 3 - Fangs 0

Skyjackers had hot dice, leveraging some early injuries and KOs into a numbers advantage that allowed some unelfy bashing to lock the game out.  Lost one line elf to -AV, and I don't think the Fangs had any permanent injuries.

Best Frenzy Forever 1 - 1 Contract From Below

Khorne kicked to the Undead in the pouring rain and the first half pretty much went all for the Contract. They managed to outbash, outmanoeuvre and generally control the pitch with some very solid block dice. By contrast the Frenzy proved unable to do anything requiring D6 rolls and also couldn't seem to knock the undead over. At one point the Frenzy dropped the Ghoul with the ball and were mobbed up to try and defend it following a failed pickup but it got pushed out of bounds in the scrum and the crowd helpfully threw it back deep into the Khorne half close to a lurking Ghoul.Despite a last minute scramble to multiply mark the ghoul (after 6 block dice had failed to take him down), the Contract comfortably opened the scoring just before halftime. The Frenzy had a turn to do some damage in return before the whistle blew but managed to turnover on their first action instead.

The second half was a bit more even-sided. The rain continued as the Frenzy pushed a cage step by step into the Undead half and finally broke away to level the score on turn 14. The rain cleared for the final drive giving the Undead a good chance to sieze the win at the whistle. A slightly incautious dash for the endzone with limited support ended badly and the Frenzy managed to get the ball in the last Khorne turn. There was a Cultist in range of the Undead endzone and he easily grabbed the pass to him. Unfortunately, the first of two GfIs he needed to actually score and take the win proved to be too much for him and he hit the astrogranite. There was an outside chance for the Undead to make a pass and some dodges to score in their last turn but they forewent that in favour of fouling the Bloodthirster who had spent most of the second half failing Wild Animal rolls.

One Cultist levelled and gets block, no levesl for the Undead but one zombie has a -1Mv injury.

Me and Lamaros tried to play, but the game ended abruptly during the middle of the first half due to a misbehaving router (couldn't reconnect in time either). We'll be replaying the match on the weekend (saturday morning or sunday morning GMT).

Timezones suck... everyone should move to CET, imo.  :grin:

EDIT: I should be arriving at my house by 10am GMT on sat if all goes well. NB: this is contingent on my Orsay-Paris taxi and the RER to the airport being on time. MMMW.  :why_so_serious:

So "28 Teams Later" played "Beards, Beards, Beards" this evening, ending in a 1-0 win for the Undead and an unfortunate Fractured Leg for one of the Dwarves.

-edit- Got BBManager sorted.

Looks like I missed you by about 30 min last night Ruvaldt. I have practice tonight and more gaming Friday/Saturday, plus setup Saturday evening and then a kendo tournament on Sunday. Is it possible that we could play either late Saturday (like 8 pm Pacific) or Sunday sometime 6 pm Pacific or later?

Anyone around now? Please?

I've never seen Dwarves go down like this against a non-chaos side before, Zetor got the short end of the stick for sure. He will be missing two for his next matchup.

I can't get bb manager to work, it is hanging on the submit match page. Game was 2-0 to me. Will try and submit again later and see what happens.

Post by: Zetor on March 14, 2015, 08:16:37 AM
Finally, Lamaros and I played (Thunder Down Under v Grudge Eternal)...

If you view the replay, you'll see how the "Dwarven B team" lived up to its name, with plenty of positioning ineptitude by yours truly. It was a brutal game that ended with a last-turn TD bringing it to 2:0... more importantly, the Dwarven pitch was pretty much obliterated right after the first drive with two casualties (one of them MNG), eventually spiraling to three casualties by the start of the second half, ending with four casualties (two of those MNG) and a whole lot of KOs. BBManager says 3 injuries for some reason, but it was definitely 4! Against the mighty Nuffle, AV9 is nothing.  :awesome_for_real:

Considering I'm a total noob coach (I only played against one human player before this), I think this was an adequate introduction to Blood Bowl for me. The fact that so many players were missing from the pitch (and the rest being in a position where doing anything would get them killed) helped me stay within the 2-minute time limit, too! :why_so_serious:

Lots of turnovers on blocks that shouldn't have been that difficult and nothing ever came together for me.  I had a player advantage towards the end, but a double-skull roll on my wight ended any chance I had of a score.  Two deaths, also, but thankfully one (my werewolf) regened.  Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come for this Necromantic team.
