Major Blood Bowl League 7 - Les finales !

(Cliquer sur le bandeau pour accéder au groupe)

Après 2 tours durant lesquels les trois-quarts des équipes ont vu leurs rêves de remporter une coupe s'envoler, les affiches des finales sont désormais connues.

Fait amusant : on retrouve en finale de 3 des compétitions les 3 mêmes coaches, peut-être pour un doublé inédit pour l'un d'eux ?




Du côté du Best of the Rest, le tournoi est terminé.

Après avoir passé la saison régulière à accumuler les défaites et, en conséquence, remporté la cuillère de bois, les Bearded Grudgebearers ont enchainé 3 victoires de rang pour s'offrir l'envié trophée du bas de tableau.

Leurs adversaires en finale, les bouchers nîmois, ont réalisé un beau parcours mais n'ont pu contenir la puissance des tueurs nains lors de l'ultime étape. Gageons que nous les reverrons pour d'autres victoires la saison prochaine.







Le Basic Fists nous propose l'affiche la plus joueuse qui soit !

D'une part nous trouvons les chouchous du public, les Tribute to Revans, qui après une saison compliquée, avaient le devoir moral vis-à-vis de leurs fans de se reprendre. Chose faite avec 2 victoires sans encaisser de touchdown. Leur expérience les place désormais en favori pour le titre.

Ils devront toutefois se méfier des Rising Sun Exiles qui ont montré beaucoup de maitrise en écartant les Jackal Squadrons et qui eux-aussi ont passé ces 2 tours sans encaisser de touchdown. Ils auront l'avantage de la force sur les elfes, tout en produisant des mouvements audacieux avec leurs ninjas !







Le chemin vers le trophée du Up N Down n'est pas aussi régulier pour les autres tournois, où 2 forfaits sont à déplorer.

Les Jabba Beer Sangsues en ont profité pour s'extirper d'un haut de tableau qui semblait très compact, mais dans lequel ils n'auront finalement pas eu à s'employer. Malgré leur défaite durant la saison régulière, ils s'avancent peut être avec plus de certitudes que leurs adversaires.

Pour les Oranjes Sanguins, la question se pose quant à savoir si, finalement, ils ont digéré la perte du titre de minor league lors de la dernière journée : un tour passé sur forfait, un autre remporté aux tirs aux buts, on connait mieux pour forger un collectif. Mais s'ils retrouvent leur grinta souvent vue cette saison, tout est possible !






Le tournoi des Seconds Couteaux est le seul qui nous propose une affiche "classique", entre une ancienne équipe lézard et une toute nouvelle équipe orque.

Du côté du Da Kombat Skwad, les matches sont pris les uns après les autres, et c'est par deux fois en prolongations qu'ils ont pu s'en sortir. Face à l'expérience des lézards, pas sûr que cela suffise.

Car les Quetza Rattlers semblent avoir tiré de leur campagne de qualification mitigée une force insoupçonnée. En éliminant successivement 2 solides équipes de Major League, les sang-froids voient maintenant le champion de minor league se présenter, pas de quoi leur faire peur !







Enfin, dans le tableau principal, les matches ont tenu toutes leur promesse et c'est un affrontement inédit et détonant qui fermera la saison.

En haut de tableau, le Central Club Lahmia a fait exploser ses 2 derniers adversaires, marquant 6 touchdowns pour n'en encaisser qu'un seul. Faisant fi des rumeurs sur leur prétendue utilisation d'un sérum dopant inédit et bientôt interdit, ils s'avancent comme les grands favoris, permettant à leur coach de rêver d'un doublé inédit après l'avoir emporté en saison 6 avec le Foulympico des Egoûts.

Il faudra néanmoins disposer des Hashut Corrupters, qui atteignent également pour la première fois la finale de la league, mais dont le coach possède déjà une réplique du trophée, souvenir la saison 2 remportée avec les Darkland Greenies. Les nains ont lutté toute la saison, tant pour sécuriser leur première place de groupe, que pour passer en quart et en demie.

Opposition des extrêmes entre les (très) rapides lahmianes et les obstinés nains noirs, la question principale est de savoir si ces derniers sauront éviter d'en prendre 3...

All Star Bowl X


Greeting Coaches,

You are all cordially invited to compete in the next All Star Bowl.

It kicks off when we have THREE more teams. Eight total.

Sing it loud!

This is a KO tournament using BB2020 rules.

All teams that compete must be created from the All Stars roster.
Create a team here.
Sign them up HERE.



Your team must include at least one Average Joe (who won the lottery to play with the stars).
The rest will all be stars!

The roster uses Nelphine's Star Pricing.
To help meet this exorbitant cost, several soverign wealth funds have contributed to grant each coach 4,000,000GP to build their team.

Some stars from around the world may bear more than a passing resemblance to stars that you already know and love (or hate).
So, it may appear that Stars are playing for both sides.
They may also be induced. Four Morgs on the field?

With "Two-for-one" stars like Grak & Crumbleberry you need to add them both to your roster.

Please sign your teams up at this group.

Once you have signed up, please post a link to your team here.

Look for warm up games on Gamefinder or on Fumbbl Discord #lfg.

Green Dukes Fall 2-1 to UBC in NCBB Season Finale


Green Dukes Fall 2-1 to UBC in NCBB Season Finale, Fail to Qualify for Bowl, Trigger Another Investigation into Potential Safety Violations

The Duqueswood University Green Dukes closed out their NCBB season with a 2-1 loss to the UBC ChunderBeards, with a slew of elf casualties that have once again placed Coach Gerric Smithson’s future with the university in question. Freshman wardancer Dethwyntyr Whitebranch (elven miliary science) scored the lone TD for Duqueswood, while UBC got TDs from dwarf runners Zappa II and Van Dyke III, who led all players with 23 yards on the day.


Van Dyke III scores the game opening TD

The loss brings the Green Dukes to 3-3-4 on the season, dropping them out of bowl contention. More troublingly, the game featured a staggering 6 casualties for Duqueswood, including two more deaths. Those mortalities brought the team’s death-to-win ratio to 5:3, drawing once again the attention of the university’s Board of Elders.

In a statement released shortly after the game, the Board of Elders declared that they have opened an investigation into potential safety violations in the university’s football program. The investigation, they note, will also explore potentially troubling ties between the team’s spiraling death count and the rousing success of Coach Smithson’s wife’s vegetable and flower stand.

“Look, all I’m going to say is there’s absolutely no truth to the rumor that we’re trying to get the fellas killed out there to help my wife’s garden,” said Smithson, who began using his wife’s garden as a cemetery for his players after the team exceeded its annual return-to-the-forest ceremony budget earlier this season. “But I will say that we are currently running a 2-for-1 sale on cabbage heads, and the elf blood does seem to give our sauerkraut an extra little zip.”


In the weeks since converting their family garden into a cemetery for dead players, the Smithson’s have opened a thriving farm stand with cabbages whose astounding size has drawn plenty of customers as well as the eye of the university’s Board of Elders

The ChunderBeards scored on their opening drive, despite a heroic effort by Whitebranch, who made a leaping cage dive to separate Van Dyke III from the ball along the northern sideline late in the first half. The dwarf team, however, quickly recovered the ball, surfed Whitebranch into the crowd and scored, having KO’d, seriously injured, or killed 8 Green Dukes on the drive.

“We had an opportunity to take control, but those removals definitely cost us,” said Whitebranch. “It’s tough to stop dwarves even when you’re full strength, but it’s even more difficult to slow down those bearded little bullies when your dead, in the KO or casualty box, or dodging flying beer steins in the stands.”

Duqueswood did nearly tie the game up before the end of the half, mounting a heroic “un tirn teedee” effort on the ensuing kickoff with just six players on the field. Pushing loner dwarf blocker lineman Kevin Dirtyhammer into sophomore Scootyr Spinleaf (history of dirt) while the kick was in the air, the Green Dukes gave the speedy catcher the extra momentum he needed to streak down the field and cross the goal line before the closing seconds. Despite expertly dodging between two highly skilled dwarf tacklers, Spinleaf lost the ball, tripping as he attempted to dive across the goal line just before the halftime whistle.


Spinleaf trips and fumbles at the goal line just barely missing a chance to even the score at half time

“Love the effort by that kid,” said Coach Smithson on Spinleaf, the younger brother of the team’s former captain, deceased wardancer Mirlin Spinleaf. “Just got bit by the turf monster at the wrong time, I guess. Shoot, to be clear, in case any of my guys read this, the turf monster is not real. It’s just a metaphor. I believe in elven they call it ‘wrolyn a wun’ at the worst possible time.”

UBC all but sealed the game midway through the second half when sophomore dwarf lineman Hipster II strip-sacked Green Dukes’ junior thrower Bryden Branch (quantitative root-conomics) near the goal line. Zappa II then scooped up the ball and trundled across the goal line to give UBC a commanding 2-0 lead.

“We were trying to Dakka,” Branch explained after the game. “But it’s kind of tough to pull off when you only got three other guys out there who can stand up let alone try to get open.”

The Green Dukes were able to avoid the shutout, however, scoring a late TD after Spinleaf broke into the clear along the southern sideline. Zappa II was able to dodge away from Whitebranch’s block, and just barely catch Spinleaf, kicking out his legs from behind, and sending the catcher to the pitch and the ball into the stands. The rowdy crowd tossed the ball just a few yards from the endzone, where Whitebranch was able to gather it for the scoop and score after leaping over two dwarves and dodging away from a third.

The effort was too little too late, however, as UBC easily ran out the clock for the 2-1 victory after receiving the ensuing kick off.

“That was a heck of a play by Whitebranch, but I have to admit I really was hoping to see Spinleaf get the TD,” said Coach Smithson after the game. “Kid’s been through a lot with what happened to his brother last year, and the injuries he’s had this season. It pains me to say this because the Spinleaf family has meant so much to this program, but I’m afraid Scootyr’s probably going to need to focus on his education next season, if you know what I mean.”


Whitebranch leaps over two dwarves on his way to a scoop and score for the Green Dukes only TD on the day

Hampered by a smashed collarbone and a fractured skull, Spinleaf’s athletic ability has been reduced to that of a large and very fast snotling. However, according to his parents and wealthy university donors, Myrvis and Scyntia Spinleaf, he’s hoping to remain on the team for his junior year.

“We’ll be meeting with the coach later this week to discuss our son’s future, and to purchase a few pounds of cabbages,” Scyntia Spinleaf said. “We understand Coach Smithson’s currently having some challenges with the university board of elders, and with our elfanthropic history, we think we might be able to help.”

As another disappointing season comes to an end, Coach Smithson’s future once again hangs in the balance. If Smithson manages to survive through next season, it’s clear that there’s only one to control the team’s spiraling death-to-win ratio. Since keeping his players alive seems to be impossible, he’ll eventually have to figure out how to do the unthinkable—win.

It's named after Dan's steely resolve, right?
It's turn 1 and you go gunnin'
To lay the slam on the exposed blocker.
You knock him down and drop the stunnin'
But now your line is out of order.
And the crowd, they are a-/stompin'
Opponent downfield and a-caging,
But your blitzer goes a-rompin'
And you console yourself by raging.

[CHORUS]
And you go back, Jack, do it again!
Dice tumblin' round and round.
You go back, Jack, do it again!

Well, you know you have some rerolls,
So you lean into the rush dice.
But ask not for whom the bell tolls,
What you roll once you may roll twice.
But then you pull a longshot wild one,
And forget about your sorrow.
All the time that Nuffle's smilin',
You'll be on your knees tomorrow.

[CHORUS]

[FUNKY SOLO]

Now you swear it to your Grandmum
That you don't gamble with your players.
But you chuck a lot of randoms
When the math is in your favor.
Block and Guard can solve your problems
So you pick them when you're able,
In the land of Skinks and Goblins,
You must roll them on the table.

[CHORUS]

Return of the Vampires

Sylvania Pact - This team was removed, it was too similar to the new official vampire roster so there was no need for its existence now.

Necrarch Vampires - I increased Hypnotic Gaze to 3+ on this team

Von Carstein - I simplified the roster, removing access to Ghosts/Spirit hosts, and changing the roster so it is essentially the classic 0-6 Vampire roster, though I added the Vampire Lord rule as this was a nice throw back to LRB 4 vampires anyway.

Blood Dragons - I changed Blood Lust to 3+ in line with the Blitzer positional in the vampire roster and gave them Juggernaut, keeping the cost the same as standard Vampire Blitzers, Blood dragons have 1 lower Ag, but have Mb and +1Av. Which depicts the Blood Dragons as the elite of the vampire Blitzers. I also added the Vampire Lord rule.

Lahmian Vampires - I changed the Lahmian vampires base stats to match the Vampire Runners from the standard Vampire team with 1 lower Ma and the Dodge skill plus a higher TV cost. This is to show that Lahmian Vampires are the elite of the Vampire Runners. I added the Vampire Lord team rule.

Strigoi - Crypt Horror and Blood Boar were added. Blood Boars were added due to the new lore for this race and as a nod to the famous Blood Bowl teams Duskfall Darkwings, who snuck animals on to the pitch to feed upon. As Strigoi fear humanity and will not entertain the idea of playing with Humans Thralls they took the lead from the famous vampire team Duskfall Darkwings. The Crypt Horror was added instead of the Vargheist. Crypt Horrors were made with the same dual kit as Vargheist, they are tougher, but not frenzied, so I took the stat line of the Vargheist and removed Frenzy and increased Av by 1. As Crypt Horrors are central to the Strigoi and Ghoul Lore it felt a much better fit.



Updates to existing rosters

Gnomes - These have had their name changed to Gnome Tinkers. Their background was based on the original Warhammer lore for Gnomes. They used to live in Dwarf Mountain holds and work for Dwarves creating Warmachines etc.. for the dwarves. The reason for the name change is there is an official Gnome roster which is based on forest gnomes lore, which appeared in later editions of Warhammer fantasy role play. I also made some roster changes for verisimilitude reasons. Though I didn't really want to, however versimilitude is one of the key design prinicples aheared too throughout Secret League. So consistency of design is very important. Therefore I changed their skill access and basic stat line in line with the new Gnomes. Though I opted for +1 Av and removal of Jump Up to signify these are tougher Gnomes, better armoured from working in the forges.

Elemental Teams - Big Guys increased cost to 170k. This means their starting roster remains exactly the same, though they are slightly less TV efficient and have a higher buy back cost

Kingdon of Ind - Basilisk cost is reduced 10k, and Agility roll changed back to 5+ because now we have a variable Hypno roll option. So I changed the hypno gaze for Basilisk to 3+ as it is the players unique selling point.

Daemone of Slaanesh - I actually changed this a while back but didn't document it, their Hypnotic Gaze roll was increased to 3+. This allowed me to remove no hands, which I never wanted on them anyway and once the variable Hypno roll option was added I made this change.

Daemons of Nurgle - I changed the Great Unclean One to Mb+1. The team is already pretty oppressive at high TV, and while the Mb+2 wasn't actually used that frequently it was just an NPE as it became a "win more" feature of the team, basically meaning when things were going well then it would just help the team do better, making them more oppressive.

Daemons of Khorne - Now we have Blood Lust back I can return the Blood Thirster back to the having a double negatrait, so I have.

Snakemen team - Mesmers Ag was changed back to 3+ and their cost increased back up 10k.

Forest Halfling team linemen dropped 5k in cost

Have fun!
