SWL Premier League LXXXII
Game 6: BeefyGoodness's Chaos "More Food for Thawt"Image

Let's get clinical. Something I heard in Throweck and co's podcast recently really struck me.

ArrestedDevelopment: "but I saw his stream and saw him react exactly the same way to a win and then also exactly the same way to what we would probably call a hard core dicing.
...and that was kind of a trigger for me to be like ok yeah, you can adopt this and it'll probably help your game"

#38 ~ 59min

I hit a low point in Prem on my last visit here and I had been determined to not get so emotionally involved this time around. Paragon of good sportsmanship, and let the hits not affect me so much.

While I don't claim to have reached anywhere near that level of Zen this season, I do feel I have been playing substantially better. The thing is though, it hasn't been as fun. I've had wins over the two teams most likely to win Season 82, and I've suffered plenty of casualties. The highs haven't felt so high, the lows not so low.

I guess one of the reasons I play Blood Bowl is because I do get emotionally invested. I don't want to get mere satisfaction out a job well done. I want to celebrate. And if (as what happened in the weekend's TT tounrnament) I find myself shouting in a crowded room "Skitter you C#$T!", then so be it. I don't want to be a robot.

... so, third place on the table. In with a real shot at taking the Prem Title. Up against Beefy's Chaos for the 4th season in a row, how did it go....?

Chocolate Fish dead. That hurts. It really hurts. And it's fantastic!
I want my Zen robot back - sob

Game 7: Rabid_Bogscum's Lizardmen "Cold Rock"Image

A lot riding on this one. Though out of the running for the Prem title, there's still a chance at a top 3 finish and qualification for the top tier again next season. Lose or draw though, and it's back down to confs.

Big lizards! All the sauruses have block and more. Big lizards mean big inducements: merc treeman, bloodweiser babe and a wizard.

Yes a wizard. The new Zap! spell is perfect for skinks. Turn the ball carrier into a frog on a 2+ and then squish him. However, Rabid has 2x St3 skinks. Guess it'll have to be a fireball then...

SWL Premier League LXXXIII

Back to back seasons in Prem. The first time I've managed that.

With the mighty S4 Chocolate Fish dead, the rebuy was easy. We've even got a bench. I wonder how long that'll last.

Who stands in the way this time?

Image Lab Rat Elysium 1640k (1/0/3)
Image Flack Ork Flockers 1660k (-/-/-)

Bravado has to wait until the last round until we face a team we've got a winning record against. That doesn't look good. How about recent form? (most recent games against each):

WW-W--W

I like the look of that. Bring it on!

Game 1: Balle2000's Khemri "Didgeridead"Image

Bravado suffered 5 deaths last season. Up against a big Rock team first up this time and the wood elves were a nervous crew.

Rookie wardancer Glee Strawberry had a magnificent debut. First action of the game she took out a mighty blow blitzra (failed regen) - poor Pooroogooroo doesn't even feature on the match report.

Wood elves scored Turn 6.

Image

Endzone to endzone is a long way to travel in the rain. Nearly legend Niabatteroo didn't even try. He used kick off return to get next to the ball, then had a wee break for the next two turns.

Skelly GFI fails, made things that bit easier for the lovely Glee

Image

Half time 2-0

The second half was all Khemri. Wizard fizzled. Elves evaporated. Ball refused to be collected in the rain.

Legend Nibatteroo made his T16 move at a second TD to tie the match... Blitz
2D hit, need to knock over the line elf Image Image
6+ Pickup [6] uh-oh
4+ dodge [2] phew
3+ dodge he's down it doesn't matter
2+ gfi Bravado have already won

Glee Strawberry, 3 cas and a TD. Who needs a stat freak wardancer anyway?

Final Score 2-1 (3/1/1 - 1/2/0)

Game 2: D_Arquebus's Skaven "Lab Rat Elysium"Image

Glee Strawberry, the darling of Round 1 with 3 casualties and a touchdown. Out of the blocks in Round 2 with another cas.
Image

She could do no wrong. Except she can. Start of Turn 7

Whole team out of position, it was up to the veteran Volos to stop the touchdown.

0-1 quickly became 0-2 when Glee let herself get tagged by a dauntless gutter runner

Consolation touchdown for Glee, but she still has much to learn.

Final Score 1-2 (3/1/0 - 3/0/0)

Oh no! Another blog post missed. Maybe I'll get back to it in the season break. I think that's 4 or 5 I've missed now.

Capital Shield VII

Bravado headed back from the Southern Wastes for a weekend tournament on home soil.

A while back I did a streak of tournaments with Wood Elves, refusing to play anything else until I won one. And I did, on my 6th attempt a tiny one-dayer (8 coaches). This freed me up to play other teams (including Slann at the Word Cup).

However, with the Australasian State Champs put back a year by Covid, I did feel a need to cement my place on the NZ team. So Bravado had another crack at the Capital Shield in Wellington.

If you lack confidence in your tree, bring a giant Shroom.
Image

Things not quite back to normal the field was reduced to 16 coaches. But being a 2-dayer, this was big enough for a NAF trophy (Bravdo's last victory was not):

Game 1: Happy_Amateur's first ever tabletop tournament. Actually his first ever tabletop match! A T16 leap over a screen to victory was needed. 2-1
Game 2: opulis's Ogres. A ridiculous T8 TTM one turner, was followed by an epic Ogre T16 boneheadorama. It's not often a draw feels like a win against Ogres, but this one did. 1-1
Game 3: Deon's Undead. Smashed them off the park. 3-0
Game 4: Sandune's Halfings. Top table, Sandune had played 3 rounds and not let in a single touchdown. Wood Elves would see to that. 3-0
Game 5: OrcCleaver's Orcs. On T16 an Orc with hypnogaze (7 deadly sins ruleset, this one was Lust) allowed a blitz on the ball carrier. A leap was needed to get the victory. 2-1

4/1/0 and my first NAF trophy to add to the painting queue. A fun weekend.

Game 4: Sharper's Chaos Dwarf "Bronzed Raiders"Image

The current Champs! Bravado were the only team to defeat them last season.

They would be tough. The focus would have to be on squishing their annoying Ag4 superstar hobgoblin Torduken.

First half, the wood elves held out. Coach Sharper didn't seem keen on getting surehanded Torduken on the ball, and in Turn 7, Volos stripped the Ag3 Bull Carrier.

Second half, Bravado scored turn 12

Again Volos stripped the Ag3 bull. T15 the ball on the deck, enough wood elves on it to make it seem like a win was on the way.

But if Torduken wouldn't come to the ball. The ball would come to him.

T15 Ball Magnet!:
Image

T16 Ball Magnet!:
Image

Final Score 1-1 (0/1/0 - 2/1/0)

Past the halfway point of the season. A win there would have put Bravado at the top of the table. Second place, not out of it yet.

Game 5: Bobs's Lizardman "Cult of the Firedrake"Image

Bravado sets up on T16 after an unsuccessful skink hunt
Image

The wood elves had been undone by sidestepping diving tackle skinks at the end of their first half drive.

Bravado went all in at the start of the 2nd. Vital we get that ball.

Watch that ball:
Image

Pity we couldn't keep that ball. After the ball changed hands a few times, Glee double skulled on an attack on the skink, and it ran away for the win.

Final score 0-1 (0/1/0 - 0/2/0)
