A year of Fumbbl
After about a month of tt experience, I decided to make a Fumbbl account. It was really just to check out dark elves before I got the minis. Good thing too, I don't like DE much..
It was also a good thing because Fumbbl is an awesome community of people with wayyy more skills than my local tt scene. Even the average emerging star seemed invincible to me at that time, so it was kind of daunting. But so fun ^_^

It was pretty clear my buddy Bendrig, good coach and awesome person, didn't really have anyone to challenge and push him locally, and I wanted to be the guy to push him. Fumbbl was the obvious place to learn to get good. Little did I know how bad my play actually was back then xD But BB is addictive like heroin, so I kept coming back for more poundings. I was soon directed to the 145 league, and got loads of great pointers from the likes of Rbthma and Dalfort.
After a while I was experienced enough to spot my own mistakes, but not experienced enough not to make them. Nuffle being Nuffle, I also had a streak of bad dice at that time. Lost all confidence and played every game in a panic. Just one spot-on pointer from ArrestedDevelopment got me back on track though, and Bendrig and Rbthma reminded me the point of the game is to have fun.
Since then I've been slowly but steadily learning to be a decent coach. On Fumbbl I still feel like a noob at times, but I keep seeing improvement and I'm kicking ass in my tt community. I definitely make Bendrig sweat sometimes :D Loads of draws lately


So.. the point of my ramblings: thank you Christer for Fumbbl, thank you coaches for being awesome, thank you Rbthma for the 145, thank you Nuffle for Blood Bowl \o/

Only a year?! Feels longer somehow, but glad you're seeing improvement and having fun. My tentacle rats demand a re-match sometime :D
Enjoy the free heroin!

I joined here in 2009 and I'm still learning. Agreed that (for the most part) this community is fantastic.

Glad you are enjoying your time here, the only pointer I ever remember telling everyone is not to play like me :P

Have fun and take care o/
