Hero or die trying
After hitting 2000 games, the Hellbound Charioteers are wondering what's next. What to die for?

We've decided to go Hero badge hunting. All games in past millennia do not count. We are counting from 2001 and on.

Question for those of you currently hunting badges, how do you keep track of all the goals? Some are rather esoteric. Do you just write each criteria down on a piece of paper near the computer and review after each game?

team bio notes?
Posted by Rbthma on 2018-04-13 22:23:22
write goals in ink on left hand for easy reference during the match. ALL OF THEM!
For backup in case of fun conversation via keyboard with opponent you could have a tab open to the badge page. ;)

I find akaRenton's bookshelf version easier to read btw: (click Badges)
https://fumbbl.com/p/notes?op=view&id=1960

also has the bbcode when you click on them

I write the race specific ones on the team roster, most of the rest are fairly unlikely events that I find I sort of notice in game anyway. Don't kill a legend, or get a T16 foul kill, or get 5 guys sent off every game. Don't get 8+ fouls with no send offs every game.

Things like killing one of each position, there's templates for that, or do up your own, track your progress.

5 Cas for a player, 5 TDs, 5 CPs, a Larson, 5-0 scoreline, you'll notice those. End to End TD. The mega pitch invasions. Have a read through the badges now and then as a reminder, tell your opponent if they get one, or ask if you're not sure, even think about how many you're pretty sure you've already done with the team at some point to help with memory.

Might be a struggle to win a game without throwing a block, in all fairness, unless you have a whole lot of leap-DT at some point. But a lot of them, you can be aware and push for them through a game that goes a certain way from the start. Fouling five teams into retirement, I think I'm only at two as a coach, 1 each for a couple teams.

But then, for me it's something for the older teams, a badge or two here and there brightens up my otherwise limited team bios.

I may have achieved a few with some teams, but checking those requirements after every game or a couple of... nope, nothing for me. If I remember one, I add it to the player/team (sometimes not).

Made some sort of own badges and awards, especially for single players. Way easier for me to keep track of.

You can create ideas for new badges you want to go for as a team or for each individual player or position. Something which is reachable or at least thinkable the Hellbounds can and want to get.

There are some that are going to take some time. Like for Norse, having 6 blodgers. Don't forget to choose dodge on your doubles for a while and keep a pair of norse runners. There is also a badge for having 5 players with shadowing. If you are going for that, don't forget to grab shadowing when your rookies skill.

I also like to pick a few badges to go after in a match. For example, you can dedicate a few games to the fouling badges.

There are also some badges that are easier against different teams. For example, when you square off against ogres, that is probably the best time to go after 8 consecutive dodges by bouncing through snotling tackle zones.

Finally, I have a pen and ink list next to me. You may notice that a player took 10 dice without falling but you may not notice earns you a badge without consulting the list off and on.
