Zee Vampires have advanced, ah ah ah ah. The sidestepping (looks like prancing to me, Bob) elves got out to a good start, stopping my initial advance and scoring their own defensive touchdown on turn 8. However, Nuffle had other plans, and in the second half mounting knockouts and casualties on the elf side of the pitch contributed heavily to two defensive vampire touchdowns, including one off of a blitz/short-kick/vampire catch. The vampires got very thirsty towards the end of the match, failing something around 4-5 blood lust rolls, but it was too late to stop the turn 16 run-in of the winning TD.

Having no bench (I was 10k short!) and having none of the KO'd elves wake up took a toll in the second half, especially as the Vampires had 2 players on the bench.  Took a gamble when setting up with 7 players and *BAM*, well placed kick plus Blitz -> Vampire tying TD!  Then the elves received again and had a shot at victory, but Hypnotic Gaze and solid blitzing locked my receivers down and left me with a desperate 43% pass play at the end... The ball scattered, and those damn Vampires recovered and marched it down field to score on turn 16. The short-elfed defense tried to resist but couldn't quite get at the ball, though a slew of last minute hungry Vampires made it a close call.

Good match!

Congrats Ingmar.

Three matches left, how are we doing on scheduling?

Couldn't get a response from Avaia this weekend though I tried both with a private message here on board and with a few messages on steam so not sure when out game will get played (due to timezone difference).

McKnight and I learned today that we're about an hour and 15 mins further apart than we thought.

We played the game almost to the end but unfortunately there was a disconnect so we need a reset. "Luckily" the result was clear so you can give Avaia the win.

My favorite statistic of the game: go for it 5/11 45% (the dwarves managed to fail over half of their go for its!)  why so serious?

Elves got a luck break early in the match when they dislodged the ball from the dwarves and it bounced right to an elf, who ran it in for the score. 

At the end of the half, dwarves attempted a GFI to score, but fell going into the endzone.  The ball went off the pitch and was thrown upfield, where an elf catcher caught it and made a couple of GFIs to go up 2-0 at half, thpugh they were down to 7 players at this point. 

Elves got the kick to start the second, and proceeded to milk a few SPP while dicking around near their endline.  A few turns later, they broke out up the sideline and eventually ran it in on turn 14 (I think) for another score to go up 3-0.

Dice and RNG were very kind to me.  We'll both lose out on a bunch of SPP here - I think the dwarves had 4 injuries, and I had 5 or 6 passes as well.  I'll have to get my ethernet straightened out before the next match.

Two games played and unless I hear about any more plans to play further in the next few hours  I'm going to advance Satael and Ingmar directly to the final.

From the sounds of Avaia and Satael's reports, wouldn't Avaia be the one advancing?

Yes, Avaia was leading 3-0 when the game disconnected and there was no way for me to catch up despite bashing his team down to 3 players on the field.

Um, ok, sorry - I fucked that up then - and I don't think I can fix it.

Ingmar and Avaia, I've opened up another league F13 Season X FINAL

You can join that and play, or join the feeder league and play there, or someone who knows how this nonsense works can tell me how to fix it.

It seems I'm quite bad at this.

I applied to the FINAL. I think if we did a feeder league game we'd be vulnerable to a tie as the finish.

That problem exists anyway because you cannot have a playoff with only 2 teams because cyanide.

The easiest way I can think of to fix it is to make them play an open league match and, if that is a draw make it a best of <however many it takes until there's not a draw>. The only way to get a knockout game is to make a minimum sized league and put in a bunch of ringers to pad the numbers. Each ringer needs to be from a different coach account though.

Avaia and I played; I managed to turn a 2-1 win into a 1-1 tie by misunderstanding the rule for a blood lusted vampire scoring a TD.

His team was so trashed after the match that we just decided to call it my win rather than replay, since the odds of me winning in an overtime were probably 90%+ anyway.
