What about the Star Player "King Boombastic" -> is he available in the inducement list? (he has "Piling on" as a skill). Also, when hiring Mercs for any team, I noticed that you could theoretically give them the "piling on" skill -> is that allowed?

PO for mercs in Ranked and Box is a known bug, and not to be exploited.

For League, ask your League administrator, or whatever the two of you like outside structured play really. It will use a Team Re-roll, unless your custom league has set otherwise.

my next question is - if it's a KNOWN bug, why not just... take care of it and remove it?

Our client programming is done by a single volunteer in his free time. What we have is excellent, even if there are a few bugs here and there. It is the responsibility of each and every coach on Fumbbl to do their best to use what we have fairly.

Anyways Boombastic needs to be redesigned with the new rules. Maybe give him Jugger.

They're not a FUMBBL creation. So team changes would be done by another group. There's a good chance they've probably already made the changes, I don't follow the topic.

This is the Simyin ruleset:

https://fumbbl.com/p/ruleset?id=15

But if you follow King Boombastic (Rosters->Simyin->King Boombastic->Back to roster) you can see that it belongs to an undefined ruleset without owner.

So despite Sundevil is the curator of the Simyin, only Christer himself can change King Boombastic's skills.

I wrote to SunDevil about this.

Have you checked on TFF? There is a topic there on them.

Actually thinking about it..........there might be more than one roster. Certainly the figure line is different.

Correct, Christer would need to make actually site changes. I was one of the team that created the Simyin but I have no administrative access here on FUMBBL. Nor should I! Smile

As a side note, I am a vocal critic of the majority of GW's haphazard rule changes in BB16. Making PO optional is unnecessary and a clumsy attempt to address an issue that is primarily an online issue, not a tabletop issue.

That said, I am interested in keeping the Simyin in line with the ruleset FUMBBL uses so I'll PM Christer and see what we can come up with!

SunDevil fixed King Boombastic and the Simyin stars have their icons properly set from now.
