Helped by some really lucky dice, my chaos dorfes bashed those Dark elves of Malmir out of the tourney and head on to the semi-final .... like last year, hopefully performing better than there.

Necros prevailed, even though Woodies received in overtime fielding 11 players. Surprised Was gutted yesterday but after having checked the replay, I have managed to convince myself that it was just dice finally catching up with me, and not some massive coaching failure on my part. Wink And of course, my opponent played a very good defence.

I wish there was a reminder pm, stating that the Lottery was now available. I saved my team for a chance, but heard no mutter of the spot/ time to apply.

BattleLore informed us in Qualifier 1 via PM, but that was rather early (January 15th), long before the main event kicked off. I'd guess and hope he did that for all qualifiers. There was no reminder though when the draw was near, true. And those who thought abut it (like me) possibly didn't want to make a fuss, since less applications meant better chances for their own teams... Maybe next year I'll be a better sportsman and remind coaches. We shall see. Smile

Kind of dirty pool isn't it Rabe?

He didn't remind us of anything, at any point. He stated that no games were to be played in between your end of the qualifier and entering in the team. I guess its another dropped ball.
As a person who had once won a lottery, they have made it a point to send out a pm to all people who entered the qualifiers, right before the Tourney started. They did this two years in a row (2014, and 2015.) I don't remember them doing it in 2016. Anyways its over. I would have liked to have the opportunity to enter in.

Dude, how long have you been here?

You know there is a lottery in the WO every year. If you were saving your team why wait to apply? It even says on the group page that the lottery will take place immeadiately before the main draw and states that to be eligible you need to apply to the group.

Why so defensive? I think you both have a point. No need to wait until the actual lottery is about to happen, you can apply your team as soon as you're out of the qualifier. On the other hand, it would have been nice to advertise the draw here in this thread and/or in a blog. Well I guess you could count this post of Malmir's as advertisement:

https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=700778#700778

But really wouldn't have been so much trouble to give an official confirmation to that, would it?

Definitely. Can't and won't defend myself there.

And seeing your disappointment, I'll probably think differently about it in the future.
(Though I myself make sure that I don't forget applications to tournaments, no matter how well advertised - and if I still manage to miss the deadline, I blame myself.)

I'm only having a bit of fun with Keggie, he's been around long enough and entered enough tournaments to know the score.

On monday the 27. 2., 2130 server time, some little elves named after quite a good show will be the victims of my psychopathic killers , the hashut fanatics.

Here some leaked stuff from the locker room of the Fanatics, probably a state from coach cedric asked if his Guys are eager to play real classic hard bloodbowl vs the woodies.

"And yes, i feel lucky cas wise. To be honest, even if i myself am a handsome guy and ( more elven) coach, my dorfes have sworn simply to destroy your woodies. As they have done it with every team in the qualifiers. Your woodies might have some punch, but they think they should learn you a bit respect. Ours mood is between bloodfrenzy and total killing mood. So, i leaked this information from the cabin to yours and you feel free to do act as you want with it WinkWink"

Get ready specs!

Taken from the same PM thread:

"I bet you´ll think piling onin with that niggler twice!"

"are you trying to foul every turn? We sure will until Lucille is ejected!"

"We don´t really mind the claw! Just hold your tears when them woodies kick back. Smile Smile Smile"

"Your team is going to make me some nice E.L.F. points."
