I'll buy it unless it's a spectacular failure (and even then I might in hopes of a "miracle patch")

I'll buy it. 

I've had more hours of enjoyment from Blood Bowl than any other game, I think.  Sadly, that is in spite of Cyanide rather than because of them.

Yeah. I want to bitch about it, but really, how much enjoyment have I gotten out of BB in all its iterations? I'll buy it.

I'll buy it -- if the UI is better, there are less bugs, and there are actual features added.  If it's just better graphics and more new teams...

Only potential problem this has, is that if they try to push out with an all new platform, they absolutely must bring along all the current races (OK, fuck Khorne, but the rest are non-negotiable). I'd also be sad to lose my current teams.

That aside I'd happily pay money every year because blood bowl is awesome.

I don't know about the whole "all the teams" thing.  If they tackle this the same way they've been doing their Dungeon Bowl thing, expect DLC teams, Star Players, and other nickle/dime stuffs.

That said, it would be nice to get an actual engine/client overhaul to bring this up to par with current gen hardware and such.

More like keep fucking that chicken.

If this doesn't come with a SERIOUS UI overhaul and lack of bugs, it better be really goddamn cheap and I better get a discount for having bought the previous 3 fucking bug-ridden editions.

However, since I've put over 100 hours into the goddamn game, I'm sure I'll probably buy it anyway.

That's pretty much what they've been doing for several years now even with Blood Bowl.  First Blood Bowl, then Blood Dark Elf Edition, after that Blood Bowl Legendary and finally Blood Bowl Chaos.  The main feature of each iteration was additional sides.  They might make the DLCing of BBII a little more obvious, but this has been their strategy for years.  I don't have a problem with it, obviously.

To me, a DLC model works a lot better than the new edition model they've been running with for years. I'm assuming it's because the original BB was built before DLC became so prominent and so wasn't designed from the ground up for it. As long as you can play AGAINST teams you haven't bought in multiplayer, then I'm fine with DLC teams.

Just wait until they decide to make special dlc star players  why so serious?

Same. Pretty sure my aggregate Blood Bowl time is at over 400 hours, which is pretty much only beat by MMOs for me. The only way they lose me is the Dungeon Bowl model, and even then I'll probably still be suckered in eventually.

The feature I want the most: something akin to battle.net where you can go browse other people's teams/players/stats on a website.
#2 would be real controls for replays.

Hopefully they will pillage BBM and if they don't build a decent UI for stats at least expose some APIs to get at the data from outside the game.

I'm OK with dlc teams, just so long as they are all there at launch.

Otherwise, why switch?

Maybe they are saving all the gui bug fixes etc for bb2 so people will buy it (can't really think of any other reason they are not doing it)  why so serious?

I'll most likely buy this just to keep playing in the F13 league.

That being said, if it isn't better than the current game and gets released with teams similar to what BB1 was released with then I'll be very disappointed.
Mainly because it has taken so long to reach the heights of Ogredom and I'm not sure what I'll do when I have to make another team...

If it doesn't add anything new, there is no reason to pick this up, imo. The only things we are missing are the Slann, Pact and the whole host of Star Players, so unless they start showcasing that stuff, I'm not impressed.

I'm in if they fix the UI, the bugs, and the crappy network architecture.  Maybe include all the star players, even if they look like normal players.

I'd even settle for less teams if they fixed those things, but otherwise no amount of pretty graphics or new teams will sway me.
