You are picking it up with the wrong guys, every team basically has someone who you buy only so you have someone who can handle picking up the ball.  Also one of the early roles for a level'd up player is guy who picks up the ball without failing so often.

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

Also having an enemy player next to the ball makes it harder to pick up, so always knock the guys around the ball away or on their butts before you try to pick it up.

And what if said guy is nowhere near the ball thats just been dropped?

Blood Bowl Legendary Edition.
Expansion that is bigger than the original game. 12 races on top of the actual 8 for a total of 20. Hell yeah.

Quote
2010-04-01
Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition!

We are honored to reveal Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition, that will come out on PC at the end of 2010!
 
Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is the ultimate Blood Bowl edition! 12 new playable races join the 8 races already available in the 2009 edition. Blood Bowl fans will thus find all their favourite races from the original board game. Undeads, Amazons, Ogres and 9 other races enter Blood Bowl's tournaments. All 20 races have their personal style, tactics and unique skills which give each game a diversity rarely seen in a strategy game.
 
There will be also new, more impressive stadiums to welcome all these new teams. From the snowy Norse stadium to the creepy interior of a crypt, the change of scenery is guaranteed.
 
A new Story mode is introduced, in which players will play as a freelance coach. They will have to lead several famous teams and take up many challenges through a story revealing the origins of Blood Bowl, the Old World and its many races that relentlessly compete with each other in merciless games. A newly scripted tutorial will teach all new comers everything they need to know about coaching a Blood Bowl team!
 
Of course, in order to stay as close as possible to the official rules, many additions and updates have been made to better match the latest Living Rulebook edition, used in all official board games official tournaments.

Well, it was a "test league", and quite succesful I must say as it would be apparent to anyone patient enough to read back the whole thread. Of the 28 scheduled match, I think 25 has been regularly played. Quite a feat! Still, here's what happened, starting from my last post about it:


The last league lost its momentum at the end of July, summer hit, I left for the States and a few others had prolonged absences due to holidays. More, the game never made it easy for people to arrange games and our f13 Bloodbowlers Steam group didn't completely solved the problem, and I'm sure at some point everyone got tired to use slow forum PMs or unanswered Steam IMs. The league has been a success in my opinion, even without its final chapter. The funny thing is that we don't have a winner despite 6 and an half weeks played. in fact, with just one match to play, the standing is:

#1 Aez - 16 points
#2 Helm - 13 points

If Aez loses his last match (vs. Cadaverine) and Helm wins (vs. Modern Angel), then we need a final tiebreaking match to declare a winner.
I'd love if you people would try and play those two finale games.


Since Der Helm had to forfeit his match vs. Modern Angel due to the inability to launch the game under Vista leaving Modern Angel's invitations unattended (see posts of by Aug. 30 and Nov. 23, 2009 in this thread), Aez is officially the winner. Even more so since Aez won his match the same way against Cadaverine (Aez offered to play the game again Nov. 19th 2009 in this thread but Cadaverine never responded).

Here are the much awaited results of the last game:

Official Results for Week #7 of 7:

Scadente (Black Amnesty) 2 - IainC (Tlachtlan Tornadoes) 0
Typhon (Toothsome Terrors) 1 - Falconeer (Bat Country) 1
Aez (Fraggers) 3 -  Cadaverine (Team Bugman's) 0 (Cadaverine forfeited)
Helm (Luscious Lizards) 0 - Modern Angel (Estalia Crushers) 3 (Helm forfeited)





So the "Official Final Standings of the First f13 Blood Bowl Test League" are:

1) Aez ............. 19 pts.
2) Modern Angel ............. 15 pts.
3) Helm ............. 13 pts.  (+TD diff)
4) Scadente ............. 13 pts.  (-TD diff)
5) IainC ............. 7 pts.
6) Cadaverine ............. 6 pts.
7) Falconeer ............. 6 pts.
8) Typhon ............. 1 pts.



Now that we officially have a winnar, and folded up Season 1, can we move forward with the next league?

I was mostly being tongue in cheek. I actually had no idea Der Helm had computer issues. I'm of course game for another league. I'll need to check finances but the 30% off had me basically as a go for this.

Ok. This thread will stay alive and the main place for all Blood Bowl and League related news. But if you are interested you should totally join the Steam group.
It won't be the only way to keep in touch for League purposes, but it's a good one nonetheless. Better than Facebook, isn't it? Or you want a Facebook group?

Something from the official FAQ:

Quote
Are there plans to change the interface to manage private leagues? If so, what will be improved?
Yes. We have spent a lot of time re-thinking and developing the multiplayer interface. It has been split into several pages for more clarity and better ergonomics. We have also integrated new features for private leagues administrators like: the ability to cancel a game and replay it or even to modify the score of a game.


Will the current version and Legendary version co-exist?
Players will be together on the lobby, they will be able to see and talk to each other, but they will not be able to play against each other.


First one is good news. Second one is disaster. Basically, unless you upgrade and/or get the Legendary edition, no League will be possible. Unless we all decide to play the vanilla version, which would still cut out any new player. Dammit. Anyway, discount is pretty good. It's gonna cost me 27 , so I guess it's a very good price even in GB Pounds or US dollars for an expansion anyway.



EDIT:

Quote
Will there be an international release of Blood Bowl Legendary Edition?
Blood Bowl Legendary Edition will be released in Europe, in store and digital version in Q4 2010. The dates for the North American region and other areas are not yet finalized.

Fuck this. See you later, guys   Heartbreak

Given that the 30% discount is only there for people who buy in their store I'm not seeing the issue. I'll just hit their digital version again.

I got the digital version from there store last time, so there being no boxes in NA doesn't bother me either.

That said, I haven't played this since shortly after my schoolin in the league and I'd want to play one of the newer races... and that won't be possible until the 28th.  New league starting on the 29th would mean that I only had a day to try to figure out which race I want to play.

...

Ok! Ok! For me it won't matter I'm going to suck anyway, but other folks might actually benefit from a little practice is all I'm sayin.

As much as I love Blood Bowl, I just bought this and have barely had a chance to play it, especially since the "real" league never actually happened. Why should I buy it again? Some bugfixes and dark elves?

Wait. It doesn't say no box until the 28th. It says NO way to purchase it in North America until some undefined later date. Am I wrong?

New league starting on the 29th would mean that I only had a day to try to figure out which race I want to play.

Hey, it won't start on the 29th. It will take a long time to prepare anyway. I put that date as an event on the group as a test. No hurry.


And Azazel, it's not dark elves. The new version is 11 new races up to a total of 20 from the actual 9.

OMG! Even more reason to really buy this, is it going to be Chaos Dwarfs for the 20th team?  I didn't know Warhammer has expanded to 20 different races to play now (is there more?).  How bad is playing US vs Europe or US vs Australia/Oceania?  Or is it not as twitched based as I think it would need to be?

Grrr...Fallout New Vegas, Black Ops, & WoW expansion are on my purchases list already, guess I'll work more overtime and join you all come November.

Official word about the Chaos Dwarves:

Quote
At first when we started BB1, we asked Games Workshop if the Chaos Dwarves would follow the same rules as for all other Warhammer licenses. We did not received a clear answer and kind of gave up.
When Games Workshop finally answered that yes the Chaos Dwarves were part of the Blood Bowl license, it was already too late, we had made our planning and budgeted all races. So for the time being, the Chaos Dwarves are not part of Blood Bowl Legendary but we all would like to create them.

We'll definitely have a Aus/Asia league among real life friends which might suit you Azazel.

I think you'll still be able to play with us with non LegenDarr edition; you just won't have access to the new interesting races.

But yeah, I think most of F13 will be snowballed under various turkeysgiving releases
