Deadzone... dead?
I dunno, deadzone seemed to have some good promise when it first came out. I haven't played it but it seems fresh, strategically interesting, and just better than blood bowl from the games I've watched. Anyone here still play it? We've all heard of it right? If not you should check it out. I guess all of mantic's games don't really get that popular or wide spread, but I did think this one would be popular in the bloodbowl community. Thoughts?

Are you really talking about Deadzone? Or do you mean Dreadball?

How can you say 'just better than blood bowl from the games I've watched.' Do you watch more blood bowl than you play? What format do you watch? How long do your games normally take? Which format do prefer to play?

I heard some good things initially but then the back and forth style apparently put people off after a while. Apparently more like Hockey with the style. Dreadball 2 was on kickstarter and is being developed. I think it is even more niche than BB. Maybe not as tactical either.

As for DonnyRainboe, I have played 1250 games on Fumbbl alone, add in TT, and Cyanides BB and I have a lot of BB experience playing games. For every game I have played on Fumbbl, I have spectated maybe... 2-3 games on Fumbbl, so yeah, I've seen a lot of games of blood bowl.

Yes, I guess I did mean Dreadball, not deadzone.
