Game VS Blood Sea Buccaneers
Game against Blood Sea Buccaneers
was really tense, bloody and funny (well, except for the dead guy and the maimed one). Two times NDBFB went down on score, but in the end they managed to get the draw. For the first time they had a glimpse of their real strength, and realized that they can do well. Game was also important for team development, as three players got their skills. Doctor Fangs was really happy and brought cookies for everybody.
Game VS Zero to Hero
It was in game against Zero to Hero
that things really changed. Focused on the tactic and not on the bashing, NDBFB showed the very best of themselves, managing to score in their defending half, then score again and again in attacking half. Thralls and vampires worked as one man to prevent the Elves from scoring, everyone did his part and in the end Zero to Hero were lost in confusion. "We will soon be one of the strongest Vampire teams in Ranked" declared Doctor Fangs in the press conference after the game. Will it be true?
Double fiasco against Hellbound Charioteers
After a first defeat against Hellbound Charioteers
Never Date Before First Bite asked for a rematch
, but the result was another defeat. NDBFB admitted that the Charioteers are stronger than them and moved on to look for other opponents.
Game VS Scarred not Scared
In game against Scarred not Scared
NDBFB showed all their cruelty, killing four players and leaving opposing team in misery. Sweet Gina Deathbite proved herself a mercyless blitzer killing two players herself, while Boris Graves became legend and was declared new leader of the team.
100th game VS Ranked Amateurs
Big celebrations were made for the team 100th game against Ranked Amateurs
. The celebrations were not happy, anyway, as Sweet Gina Deathbite got a permanent injury due to a foul. The team is suffering a terrible series of bad luck and struggling to rebuild. Time will tell if they can rise up, but for now dark clouds are hanging over NDBFB.
Rematch VS Future Legend
First game against the Dark Elf team Future Legend
ended with a loss for NDBFB, but they didn't gave up and challenge them again. The rematch
was played under a terrible, apocalyptic rain, and luck was with the vampires. Sweet Gina Deathbite crushed the elves and scored, in the end she got the MVP and became legend. The other vampires did their job brilliantly as well and no thralls were injured, making the game a real success. A final game has been scheduled for a not far day. Both the team agree that this feud needs a champion.
The shot at the XFL
While the team was still in the middle of a long and painful rebuild they joined the Xenophobes Federated League. They played against Dracula's Eleven in a pretty unlucky game
: while the two opposing basher thralls kept removing their players from pitch, Ginger and Margaret were unable to hit hard, and they were eventually knocked out of the field. A early wizard could have resulted in a victorious blitz on ball carrier in 1st half, but even here Ginger was a disappointment. Down on players NDBFB tried a desperate pass-run game when the Count O'Driscoll, in a blaze of fury, blitzed one of the evil bashing thralls and MNG him, then Ian Strigo succeeded in a long pass. The Count ran, but was easily caught by a strip baller vampire, so the game was over.
Game VS Hurush Pentacle
After the long and painful rebuild the team looked ready to do well again, despite the fiasco in the XFL. Game against Hurush Pentacle
proved brilliant defensive skills and bashing power, the opposing ball carrier not daring to cross middlefield while Ginger and Margaret removing his team mates from pitch turn after turn. Second half was a mere formality and the Count O'Driscoll scored one of his easiest touch downs. In the end Margaret came out of pitch with 4 casualties inflicted and an opposing werewolf went to hospital with a niggling injury.
Game VS Born To Live Forever
Unanimously considered their best game ever, the match against Born To Live Forever
was a total success. NDBFB managed to kill two key opposing players and score four touch downs (their record so far), also no permanent injuries were reported for the team after the final turn. This game confirmed the good form of the team and earned Count O'Driscoll his 5th skill.
Game VS Necroboyz
Necromantic have always been a pain for NDBFB. But in game against Necroboyz
the team managed an unbelievable victory. Down on players, with Count O'Driscoll seriously injured and Hack'n'Slash chainsawing thralls, the vampires took advantage of a chainsaw failure and recovered the ball. Margaret Von Morgue was the real star of the game: first she pushed the ball carrying werewolf into the crowd, then she recovered the ball, and lastly she had an amazing coast-to-coast run to score in last turn. All the violence and the evilness of Necroboyz didn't stop NDBFB to win the game
The great Grotty's Disappointment
NDBFB had their debut in a major in Gotty Little Tournament XI. The played against a bloated Undead team and they did their best in one of the most epic games they ever played
. The stadium was full of opposing fans that threw stones at them for the entire game (this happened four times), but despite of this they managed to badly hurt a mummy, kill a kicker/dirty player zombie and finish the regular time on 2-2. In the overtime they still had 11 players on pitch and they were receiving, but a blitz event resulted into a disaster. They still could have managed to run for touch down if Count O'Driscoll would not have failed a simple pickup while he was bloodlusted, his sendoff was the end. They left the pitch feeling robbed by Nuffle, but at the same time they were satisfied as they played at the best of their possibilities. Doctor Fangs, who watched the game from the stadium steps, declared that he was proud of them.
Game VS Stercore Vibraverint
The Norse team Stercore Vibraverint had never been defeated since they started to play Blood Bowl. They had an impressive strike of 15 victories until they were defeated by N.D.B.F.D in this game
Game Vs Miss-a-toenail Vikings
The team decided to keep roaming the chilly stadiums of the nordic lands, and after Stercore Vibraverint they played a game against Miss-a-toenail Vikings
. Despite some bad luck in the start and the usual amount of pain suffered by the thralls N.D.B.F.B. came out of the pitch with another great victory, and Count O'Driscoll scored three touch downs.
Game VS Squish Bags
The team was still trying to get over Ginger Creep's retirement when they played a game against Squish Bags
. The opposing team seemed more focused on fouling and bashing than on scoring, and the ref sent 3 of their players out. They apoed a badly hurt blitzer and that resulted into a mistake, as later in the game Margaret Von Morgue managed to cripple one of their super stars. The game ended with an amazing 4-0 result in favor of NDBFB.
Game #200 was a defeat against Thorwulf and the Time Bandits.
. Never Date Before First Date decided to buy a sixth vampire, but Little Edna
did not do much in their first appearance. The team looked tired and not focused, just like in the latest games, they made silly error after silly error and the result was another loss. "A well known team like us cannot do such mistakes and made such a poor show of itself!" roared Crook in the dressing room after the game. "It is time we go back on what we were, or... or... well guys, please, go back to what we were..."
[Note: Little Edna retired few games later]
Feud against Born To Live Forever
For some reason there is bad blood between NDBFB and the Wood Elf team Born To Live Forever
. The two teams have met for five times and the record so far is 2/1/2.
Game VS Global Deejays
Stalling against NDBFB is always a bad idea. The dark elf team Global Deejays knew better after this game
. They tried to stall instead of scoring, calling a rain of blitzes on them. In the end, Count O'Driscoll managed to steal the ball and ran far, the dark elve's attemps to recover were futile. The game ended with a good victory for NDBFB.
