Yeah, great thread! Still waiting for Chuck, Competitive Eaters and Tiny Steel Hammers. But which are the other two?

Shocked to see Rata that low, but perhaps it's a tribute to the coach.

Some of the mangled rosters Reisender has had to work with would challenge me to win a recovery game, let alone a major.

I will be honest...

I kinda chuckled at seeing LoA up there. The write up is spot on.

The best part was how Leijonet and I had competing poems about what we were going to do to each other on the pitch. Everyone thought his claw/rsc loaded chaos was going to eat me for lunch.

So I started the match with the following quote:

<Synn> I am going to dice____ you like you have never been dice_____ed before

Kickoff event... GTR. Second half kickoff event.... GTR. Hence the 16 fouls (I had specs PM'ing me keeping count).

As a final note... the finals match against rafadavilla went to OT because I snaked a gfi TD in T16 Smile

Well, trying to figure out who the top 5 are...well going back to my top 10 picks:
1. Tiny Steel Hammers
2. Black Sithi - 6th by Milford
3. Competitive Eaters
4. Rata Blanca - 8th by Milford
5. Fleetfoot's Revenge - 7th by Milford
6. Chuck Versus Blood Bowl
7. Yellow Fever
8. Malditos Roedoeres!!
9. Pro Popes - 13th by Milford
10. Ultimate Superheroes - 11th by Milford

Five teams have not be selected...so are all 5 of these the top 5 in Milford's list...or are some of them ultimate snubs! Not even in the top 25!! I was surprised that Milford did not value the multiple titles as much as I would have (3 of 5 teams that won multiple titles came in #6-10). Therefore updated list:

1. Competitive Eaters
- I initially had the second mostly because they only won 2 majors - but given Milford's obvious decision to put 1 major win teams before teams that won 2, I think he will do the same thing here.
2. Tiny Steel Hammers
- Only team to have won 3 majors - doing so in less than 2 year span.
3. Chuck Versus Blood Bowl
- Dominating team that was the first to jump on clawpomb before most of fumbbl had a chance to adjust to the CRP ruleset.
4. Yellow Fever
- A truly terrifying team - the old chaos Claw/RSC monsters put the clawpomb of today in its place!
5. Malditos Roedoeres!!
- But on the backburner due to rafa's amazing wood elves right now - but they could be winning a second major if he wanted to play them instead of the wood elves.

Looking forward to Milford's top 5!

Its a great thread but I think Extraordinary Brotherhood are missing from the list They are the original major winning badboys of Fumbbl. And maby cause its before Milfords time but I miss some of Petters wins like Charade or Black Axe. Herring about them is kina like reading the Iliad. Legendary stuff that happened when civilization was young.

Just to be clear we cant thank Millford enough for all the fluff he brings to Fumbbl

Just to be clear here, Azure, Hammers are not Underdogs?

I love this...Azure making a last minute campaign to make sure Milford does not forget the "record".

This is funny, fun and gushing fluff. All the best things about Blood Bowl.

Now as I said before the list was completed a few days ago. So any appeals before the final 5 have been posted are falling on deaf ears. I have made up my mind for the final 5 and sticking to my guns.

Painstate, you are a true asset to Fumbbl. The majors are awesome, but your coverage makes them moreso. Thanks.

+1

And the number one spot should be reserved for the team that unforlorns humans at some point in the future. Very Happy

Milford should have his own fumbbl account and be able to give live commentary in games that can be heard. Would voice in the game be hard to implement?

Well, Milford dissed the Hammers during the GLT qualifier rounds picking against them...they used that for motivation of course to win it all. The entire team is tuning in to see if Milford provides more bulletin board material for them Smile
