Blood Bowl 2016 and Death Zone
As most of you already know, Games Workshop is about to release a new edition of Blood Bowl. There are a few threads about this on the forums already and I figured that rather than bury my thoughts in one/all of those threads, I'd make a blog entry with my thoughts.

First of all, I have obviously pre-ordered a set for myself. Base game, Death Zone Season 1 (and also the skaven, just because). While the official release date is on the 25th, living way up north in Sweden I'm not entirely certain I'll have my copy at that date. We'll see.

With that out of the way, what are my plans for the ruleset? FUMBBL has always strived to implement the latest ruleset to the extent it's been possible. At times, we've fallen behind a bit, and some things haven't been implemented at all to this day. That being said, I think FUMBBL is by far the most accurate version available on the Internet. The new ruleset is according to previews more or less the same as what we know already so we are likely not going to need any major changes.

Essentially, FUMBBL will switch to the new rules to the best of my ability. It won't be on the 25th of November though, but I will set up a thread on the forum where changes can be discussed. After some relatively short period of time, the easy changes will have settled down (roster changes for example) and the "official" rosters will be updated on the site. Things that require a bit more work (new skills, etc) is something I can not make any promises about, but at least we'll have a place where they're collected.

With a bunch of races only available in the Death Zone complement, I am considering DZ to be a core part of the ruleset and will effectively consider the combination the "latest ruleset" as far as the target for the site.

One thing that makes things interesting is the "Season 1" part of the name. It strongly implies that there will be more going forward. It essentially gives GW a path to add more races to the mix should they choose to. Unless things go completely crazy on that end, I will continue striving to keep up with any additions made to the game through future seasons as well.

I doubt any of this comes as a surprise for you, especially those that have been here for a long time, but it's an exciting time for us Blood Bowl fans and I wanted to post the official intent to avoid silly speculation and rumors :)

I assumed this was going to be your oppinion, but thanks for the clarity. :)

Thanks for the update!
Posted by Calthor on 2016-11-17 19:07:39
No surprise here, but still good to have it stated clearly :)

If Piling On is an optional skill in the new edition, will it be allowed in Black Box division?

Posted by koadah on 2016-11-17 19:52:09
Probably. ;)
Posted by Purplegoo on 2016-11-17 19:59:57
Good stuffs.
Posted by Balle2000 on 2016-11-17 21:04:23
@MattDakka Couldn't you wait? :) I want no piling on for Christmas this year. Santa's been noticed. Lives really close to Christer.
Posted by Throweck on 2016-11-17 22:06:48
Thanks Christer. Good to hear :)
Posted by MattDakka on 2016-11-17 22:59:02
I don't want Piling On enabled, for the record.

If DP is not unnerfed in this new rule set then I must quit FUMBBL for 7 hours in protest.
Posted by SAILA on 2016-11-18 02:29:08
Balle2000, I hate to tell you so frankly, but there is no Santa.


He died yesterday :(

Dang, better tell my kids.

If in the new rule set Piling On is listed as an optional skill I think disabling it for Black Box would be a great idea.
Posted by Rabe on 2016-11-18 13:12:23
There isn't one, but many Santas out there!

Thanks for the clarification, C. :-)

Is Slann getting nuked then?
Posted by Tomay on 2016-11-19 02:31:09
Fantastic, good to hear!

Changes to rosters, such as the reduction in price of Human Catchers and the "Weeping Blade" skill on Skaven Gutter Runners, would be on all teams created AFTER changes to the site are made, and not retroactively to current existing teams, correct?
Posted by mister__joshua on 2016-11-19 14:35:46
I belive roster changes are retroactive
Posted by Balle2000 on 2016-11-19 21:36:52
@Grod Not quite. Pact and UW will be added to the licensed rules and get miniatures. Slann will stay a "NAF sanctioned roster" like they've always been. Which means GW didn't want to produce Slann minis for some reason. Remember GW is all about the bottom line and marketability.
