What's your dream team?
Posted by FinnDiesel on 2019-02-14 12:15:21
We could see who obviously will win
Posted by datom on 2019-02-14 12:30:55
Key thing will be leveraging the disconnection policy. If they don't respond to PMs within two weeks, let's push through those Ws for FUMBBL!
(best of luck folks, do us proud!)

FUMBBL till I die

We clearly need morehouse on the team. If he wins his game we win. If he loses, we also win. (Could repeat the message for eternity, for eternal amusement.) XD
Posted by razmus on 2019-02-14 14:53:11
Oh, oh... it's fantasy football. Can I pick who I'd put on my dream team? ArrestedDevelopment, bghandras, happygrue, Harad, Mateuszzzzzz, morehouse, Purplegoo, and Tricktickler! (Hmm... I wonder what sorta odd I could get with my bookie.)
Posted by Harad on 2019-02-14 15:10:50
No Endzone, Malmir, fxiii, Stonetroll, The_Provocatuer? Just to play Devil's advocate.
Posted by pokrjax on 2019-02-14 16:02:58
Will the games be streamed/YouTubed? Say yes.
Posted by Dhaktokh on 2019-02-14 16:03:24
My vote is on Christer. And then any of the guys above :-D
Posted by ben_awesome on 2019-02-14 17:14:40
Sounds like a fun, looking forward to watching the games.

you should really assemble the best of the best - but be nice to them so you might lure some coaches into the shark infested waters of fumbbl...
Morehouse, PeteW, Malmir, etc. you know whom to invite! ;-)
Posted by MattDakka on 2019-02-14 18:27:08
Defeat is not an option!
Posted by dpwright on 2019-02-14 19:06:47
PeteW is jammy enough to win on any platform.
Posted by Wozzaa on 2019-02-14 19:13:19
Come on Team Fumbbl
Posted by PurpleChest on 2019-02-14 19:13:29
no one has mentioned me as warranting a place
Posted by ersatzniere on 2019-02-14 19:15:31
Aren’t you team captain PC?
Posted by PurpleChest on 2019-02-14 19:28:04
I dont have to be, if 7 better players than me come forward, i will organise it and stand aside.
Posted by Throweck on 2019-02-14 21:45:37
Posted by Harad on 2019-02-14 21:59:11
I’d pick Purplechest in all 7 slots if only they’d clone him. Dwarves times seven.

PC, add everyone on this list.
Posted by JackassRampant on 2019-02-14 22:51:17
Also, add me, but I ain't playin. I wanna watch.

Damnit PC, now I'm gonna have to watch BB2 streams :p
Posted by Jim_Fear on 2019-02-15 03:32:53
Two different lists based on location.
mrt1212, Bazakastine, morehouse, Jeffro, happygrue, Azure, and MenonaLoco
All these cats can bring something special and unique to the table, and each has demonstrated skill with more than a single race.
PurpleChest, PeteW, Purplegoo, Strider84, kingvan, Nachtogen, and Chainsaw.
Honorable mention: Brainsaw and Endzone (you guys play too slow.)
I know this reads like a list of old men with thinning hair, but they're also highly skilled coaches with plenty of diversity when it comes to teams they are capable with. I wouldn't trust their recommendation for a barber, but I would trust them to go represent Fumbbl.
Posted by Severedunit on 2019-02-15 03:36:55
Any chance you there's gonna be a site where we can see upcoming scheduled games? I'd love to watch a few of these. GO TEAM FUMBBL!!!
Posted by garyt1 on 2019-02-15 04:18:04
Will the likes of ex-fumblers such as The Sage and Jimmy F be playing for a Cyanide platform? If so there is plenty better here anyway. Great suggestion PC!
Posted by HandyKaufman on 2019-02-15 04:26:15
Emphasy, Relezite, Purple Chest, Bazakastine, Chainsaw, Santo (just to see him play without picking)…. and of course... ME! duh... but I don't have BB2 and won't get it so move along... move along... uh... uh... Ramchop.
Posted by phil78 on 2019-02-15 07:08:36
Don't let kfoged go to the dark side, fumbbl ftw
Posted by Throweck on 2019-02-15 08:00:31
Knowing the client well is a big thing here. There are many ways to make mistakes if you haven’t played BB2 before.

Hi Purplechest. I can't imagine a better Yul Brinner than you.
Posted by paradocks on 2019-02-15 13:09:20
studmandudebro is a heavyweight
Posted by Civ on 2019-02-15 14:22:45
I hope it's all guys who not only kick ass, but have some class to represent our great community. PC, PeteW, Happygrue spring to mind as good examples
Posted by Sp00keh on 2019-02-15 16:55:00
Please win it
Posted by Jeffro on 2019-02-15 19:26:12
I chuckled but did not pee my pants seeing my name come up here ;) ... that being said, I'm not at the same level as Morehouse, Grue and Azure - and I'd still probably put Baz above my general coaching acumen. (no offense Menona & mrt... we could Indian-Leg-Wrestle to a stalemate ;)
EuroZone yeah... Malmir, Purplegoo, Strider (yourself, PC) Jokaero, Duke Tyrion, BattleLore, Cloggy, fxiii, Stimme... likely forgetting some top notches.
And if I had to pick anyone for a team I was assembling... I would ask Relezite first. You want to consider TV, because different people play different levels depending on TV... same with some races better than others. I don't think I can think of someone that is better across multiple team values regardless of race more than Relezite.
Posted by dpwright on 2019-02-15 19:54:34
If there are High Elves, Kfoged obvs
Posted by thoralf on 2019-02-15 22:42:19
We need you there, PC.
There is always Sneaky Git.
Posted by MenonaLoco on 2019-02-15 22:55:35
MALMIR!!! YOU in??? You have to!!!
Posted by Harad on 2019-02-16 09:33:53
I find it very interesting some of the perceptions poorer coaches have about who is good. A lot of the lists above contain some solid choices albeit missing out on the top picks (how any list doesn’t have Endzone and bghandras is a mystery, not saying they are the best but the evidence they have behind them needs some strong rejecting to leave them out), but then there will be a couple of choices that leave me scratching my head, coaches who aren’t even strong ‘super star’ levels. I might write a forum post on these perceptions as I think it’s an interesting topic.
Do stronger coaches have a better appreciation of who else is good?
Posted by Malmir on 2019-02-16 09:50:14
I'm definitely interested - I'm looking into purchasing BB2 legendary edition, as I don't currently have it, but it appears to cost £40 everywhere I have found it, which seems pricey. Anyone know a place to get it cheaper? I saw some 25% off on steam deal (don't really understand what steam is) but when I clicked it, it still seemed to be £40.
Posted by sann0638 on 2019-02-16 10:24:09
in if you need people. There seems to be the perception that I am a FUMBBLer :)
Posted by Throweck on 2019-02-16 11:47:05
@Malmir- they seem to run 75% off every now and again. Think you just missed one!
Posted by PurpleChest on 2019-02-16 12:31:23
yeah, cant imagine i paid more than £10 or £15, probably time dependant though.
Posted by Malmir on 2019-02-16 16:01:53
I'll hang fire and keep checking then - thanks
Posted by Chivite on 2019-02-16 16:26:18
this sounds amazing, pity that those that make the team have to play on cyanide's bb2 though, it is almost like you got to loose a piece of your soul to go in
Posted by Relezite on 2019-02-17 04:13:55
My dream team would be Malmir, Happygrue, The_Provocatuer, Bazakastine, Morehouse, PC, Cloggy, and Faulcon (quiet in B and R but an absolute beast in the SWL)
Just like Malmir I would play but I wouldn't enjoy paying full MSRP for the game.
Posted by stowelly on 2019-02-18 09:17:22
Its £5.49 on cdkeys https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/blood-bowl-2-pc-cd-key
you might have to pay a couple of quid extra in game to buy the specific race you want to play though
Posted by Chainsaw on 2019-02-18 15:03:38
Humbling that somebody mentioned me.
I do happen to own BB2; I don't play on it much though.
Posted by gamelsetlmatch on 2019-02-18 18:14:27
PC, PeteW, Kryten, Purplegoo, Tauro, bghandras, Jokaero
