BloodBowl League 2017 Discussion

Debate the finer aspects of paying homage to Nuffle... Unless your name is Ron, in which case you're not welcome, so piss off!

I want to second what Alex just said about Ron. To me, I'll acquiesce to pretty much any ruleset to help people like Ron get involved and not get roflstomped.

I am willing to host or travel to a blood Bowl clinic to help new players get some off the books game time in and start to get some experience.

Regarding the preseason, my thought on not wanting one was that I wanted all teams to enter the season on equal footing, so much as the rules allow. Anyone that wants to get their feet wet with a pick-up game could still do so.

That being said, after some behind the scenes negotiation, I am abdicating the commissionership to Ian. He has a much clearer picture of the league he wants to run, and I think it will go more smoothly with that fixed focus. I will step in to run again in the future. Probably some stupid resurrection league thing when I do ;)

Shady mother fucking back-room deals. That said...

HOORAY BLOODBOWL!!

for what it matters:

1) I'm for a preseason. More games, more experience, more fun!
2) 6 sounds good for games
3) I kinda like the idea of no repeat teams... and first dibs on least experienced coaches
4) Fuck wood elves (and Ian)
5) I'm Pro-Bretonnia, Meh about Khorne, anti-Simyin.
6) Handicaps? I mean... not absurd, but if Ian or Cody bring elves to the table, like... fuck those guys.
7) PRO BOWLLLLLLLL
8) Ogres, Khemri, Chaos, Nurgle, Slaan, likely contenders for me... Maybe Bretts if allowed.

I might jump in with Dwarves or humans depending on when I get them and start painting them.

Amazons are a little broken in early league - it is difficult to deal with all the dodge and blodgers - so I won't take them unless I run out of choices.

I am definitely in, and down for what ever rules everyone decides. It will be awesome to get some games in again.

Hey Commish,

Can we get a ruling on how the pre-season works?

1-2 games?
Track SPP?
Track injuries? Ignore which types of injury?

Thanks, man.

so the preseason is very simple...

in order to qualify for the league is really simple. A team must have played less than 3 games. During those games everything is done as normal, track everything if you care too. Just realize that both teams have to be registered for the software to track a game.

Then, when the season starts all MNGs will be cleared and the league will commence. So feel free to beat each other senseless during a second game!

To be clear, we are saying no more than 2 games right?

That's much appreciated. 'Cuz I'm fragile. Emotionally.

I've create a roster on the dmbbl.obblm site. How do I enter my players' names, and edit their numbers?

It's probably obvious, but it ain't jumping out at me...

1. User Menu > Coach's Teams
2. Click on your team name in the screen that comes up.
3.Look at the bottom of the screen for the "Team Management" window... there's a drop down box with a ton of choices. Two of them are "REnumber Player" and "Rename Player". Select the Option you want.
4. Select the Player to rename/renumber. Choose the new number or enter the new name.
5. Hit Ok!
