Between the four of them these Blood Bowling reprobates have played 17,893 games. Assuming a minimum of one hour for each of these games that is nearly 18,000 man hours gone into the game on FUMBBL alone. If they were to combine their energies, and these man hours into a large scale engineering project, what landmark would they have likely built? Razz

Could it be anywhere as good as what's been built in the logo donations thread?

To be clear, the spectrum of coaches here is by aptitude of the game.

We all play the same variant of game, from skills to actions but to different degrees of success, dice excluded.

This is one phenotype of coach.

If you haven't thought about this, trust me, it is intoxicating.

mrt1212: so it was bazakastine and ArrestedDevelopment, I believe

Klaz: so youre saying that these four coaches each represent one class of coach

mrt1212: who identified this continuum of like...same MO
but to varying degrees of success
between the 4 mentioned including myself
I'm a 2nd rate Quarion8, I hate to inform
Wink

Klaz: oh youre saying that all 4 mentioned coaches are the same type?

mrt1212: yep

Klaz: huh

mrt1212: this is a phenotype of coach
also that we've played almost 18k games
is another characteristic

Klaz: Smile

mrt1212:
Wink

Klaz:
Well, honestly i do see it
yeah

mrt1212:
like it kinda clicks now?

Klaz:
theres a lot of similiarities between you and swampy
i dont know quarion and ark very well

mrt1212:
well arktoris is in NBFL

Klaz:
but i've seen youa nd swampy a lot and yeah, both of you seem to approach the game the same

mrt1212:
but like every time we go HtH I feel like an older brother

Klaz:
just with different rates of success
gotcha

mrt1212:
inside NBFL or in Box/Ranked

Klaz:
box
and raked
yeah

mrt1212:
quarion8 is the stud though
same approach but just much more sharp
and really, that's what a lot of it comes down to
sharpness
are you doing things in order of odds, are you taking your riskless moves first?
etc etc
remember to stand up?
cant i post this?
oh, are you seeing the risk/reward as much?

Klaz:
yeah
i get what youre talking about

mrt1212:
this is the kinda stuff that truly fascinates me about BB
how different people interact with the game
and 'likes to likes'

Klaz:
heh
I actually think i fall on the same contiuum as you
but i just dont have the time to actually get there
im a builder, i love building my teams and players

mrt1212:
maybe - i dont get nearly the same vibe but there is the lack of watching
this is where i wish i could devise the sorting tests
lol

Klaz:
heh

mrt1212:
we'll find you a pod man
Smile
like this is the thing where the metaphor to plants is solid
you have similar characteristics
but...but...it is just a tad bit unique
the phenotype i'm included in is pretty much one of the most solid and identifiable
just because it's kinda contrary at times

What phenotype is understanding the odds but doing fun stuff instead because, well, like... it's a game?! Razz

17,893 games is about 1.3 Brasky Units.

It'd be fun to develop a list of coaching styles into which you could fit all or almost all coaches, and a legendary coach for the type. Like, I'd probably fall into the PurpleChest grouping.
