If your opponent intentionally throws the ball to you, and your guy catches it, should you get credit for an interception? If my guy catches it, does my opponent get credit for completing a pass?

I think not in both cases and the client seems to agree with me but I ask anyway.

In the linked game, Throwrek is messing around and threw the ball to me on the final play of the game. I caught it and neither of us got SPP for it.

Seems to be the logical conclusion. Your guy is rolling for a catch, not an interception. Say the ball is thrown to an adjacent space and you catch it with diving catch, that still constitutes a catch and not an interception.

In the same way, he is not actually completing as a completion is a successful pass to an own player.

To have a chance to intercept you have to be "closer" than the receiver. If you are the intended receiver then you can't be closer than yourself so can't attempt to intercept. That is how I would see it.

Bombs is a time where you may aim to throw something at someone not on your team in a normal game.

No, that's not an interception, but a catch of a pass deliberately targeted to a player.
An interception means stopping mid-air a pass targeted to a different player.

No, the completion requires the ball being caught by a thrower's team-mate in the targeted square, not an opponent.

The only important interception question:

why can you intercept a pass before the thrower checks for fumble?!

Yeah, an ag2 player doing a long bomb is probably not going to be getting the ball in a position to be intercepted Very Happy

Badger, the real only important question is how can a chaos dwarf in the tackle zone of a beast of Nurgle intercept the ball and then pass the ball to a Bull in the end zone.

because it's not a sequence of events. But a checklist for different scenarios unfolding. first check: will an interception happen? If not - second check: will a fumble, missed pass or accurate pass happen? and so on.

Interception roll is before throwing roll to make interceptions more likely, if I remember well (and I suspect to speed the game up, because if interception happens first, there is no need to roll the passing die or the scatter die like in case of missed pass/failed catch).
From the logical point of view it doesn't make sense indeed.
