Hello Fumbbl, long time no see! If my profile is not mistaken, it's been close from 10 years since my last login and match around here, but apparently this game is just too good to pass on! I have fond memories about this community... I have to admit it feels amazing to see that Fumbbl is still up and thriving after all these years.

So I've been lurking on the website and forums for the last few hours and think I got the gist of it (Blackbox matchmaking looks great, the Patron is neat, new LRB have been implemented, Clawpomb is controversial, etc.), but I'm sure I've missed a few pretty huge things.

So, to any veteran out there : how would you sum up the last 10 years of BloodBowl and Fumbbl?

See you soon on the pitch!

10 years.. wow. Welcome back. Also since you were last year we've managed to turn Fumbbl into a troll-free place. It's quite unique on the internet!

Welcome back, I sent you a PM with the BB2016 rules change.
Feel free to ask questions. Smile

An impressive feat to say the least. Or is that post a troll to begin with? Very Happy

Clawpomb was Claw, Piling On, Mighty Blow. it was controversial for killing players and causing anguish and causing a million forum threads

it ended in march this year, Piling On is no longer available so big teams arent as killy

The last ten years GW Hibernated on Blood Bowl and have now launched the game. The current debate is about is this good or bad!

We now have 2.5 rules sets being used. The old LRB 6.0, the new BB2016 rules and a variety of amalgamations of these in use by leagues and the NAF. FUMBBL is attempting to follow the new rules but has not yet got there on all of them.

Piling On removal is good for sure.

there's a custom rosters feature with a number of interesting things being done with it.
one of the most notable things related ot that is Secret League which made a whole host of interesting new rosters for people to play.

Not sure if he will read this, though - "Last seen 14 days ago"... Perhaps he's gone again.

I also had a long break before coming back in 2012. Not much have changed, just a little last december when BB2016 came out. Search for "Blood Bowl CRP" or "competition rules pack" and refer to MattDakkas documents and you'll be fine. The basics of blocking/dodging/passing/moving/etc are still as they were in 3rd edition.

Read the skill description well, those have changed quite a bit.
In short, compared to 3rd edition, the play is less bloody ( MB, piling on, DP, claw, RSF all have changed for the softer.) And look for "expensive mistake rule" it can be annoying if you try saving 140k gold for a RR.
