Is 7 STR the max? Wouldn't +ST be a waste of doubles for a deathroller?

10 is the max for all stats, no?

Yes, although I don't believe any player can get higher than STR 9 in the core rosters.

You've never met Gitka's Strength of Da Bear?

Open the dam - stop denying us quality players! So much talent just collecting dust sitting on the sidelines that should be in this draft, specifically players I developed in the NCBB to draft onto my team. Its called vertically integrated pipeline baby!

Damn millennials. Back in my day Kryten drafted a Juggernaut Blitzer with the last pick. That was the good old days.

Frenzy. Frenzy and 15 SPP. Juggernaut didn't even *exist* in that draft pool.

JackassRampant Power Rankings
Season 25 Preseason Power Rankings
Part 1: the Bottom Ten

#32 Mangledsota Many-Men, Old World Alliance, Lorebass. 2200k, 760k skills on 15 players. Yeah, this should be fun, depending on your idea of “fun”: have you seen their schedule? Eek. On the bright side, if you can make it here you can make it anywhere, and Burlesworth will probably take over a game or two.

#31 Nawlins Lost Saints, Chaos Renegades, BillBrasky. 2630k, 1340k skills on 16 players, 4 relevant injuries. This team is dinged up and would be underwhelming here even if healthy, but the coach is the most experienced coach on Earth, so that’s gotta count for something.

#30 Carolin’ Reapers, Necromantic Horror, Klazam. 2260k, 840k skills on 16 players. This team has all the pieces, but has yet to put together a successful run. I wouldn’t count them out, though: they’re a legitimate NBFL team and very tight, TV-wise.

#29 Icelandic Dolts, Norse, asteflix. 2070k, 570k skills on 16 players. Ouch, eleven free agents and they get one +MA and no doubles between them. There’s nowhere to go but up for this young squad, it’s just a matter of fishing for improvements. Norse are good at fishing.

#28 Buffaelo Khills, Daemons of Khorne, Jeffro. 2690k, 1020k skills on 15 players. 1 relevant injury. This is a dangerous, deadly team, but they’re outmatched in the AFC East. Still, they’ll make some noise.

#27 New York Kroaks, Slann, ex-convict. 2270k, 680k skills on 16 players. This team looks promising but will probably go through growing pains. The schedule is fairly soft, so they may rise in the rankings.

#26 San Dogo Chompers, Human, Kryten. 2580k+, 1110k skills plus two skill rolls on UDFAs, on 16 players. 2 relevant injuries. This team looks pretty good, but the Chompers have been having trouble for the last few seasons.

#25 Titannesse Kraken’s, Nurgle, GotrekSlayer. 2710k, 1110k skills on 16 players. 3 relevant injuries. These guys are a threat to all and sundry, but are unlikely to break out in what’s looking to be a hard season.

#24 Dallas Crowbar, Dwarf, OTS. 2810k, 1290k skills on 16 players. 1 relevant injury (not counting the AG1 Slayer and Blocker). Dwarfs are super hard mode in this environment, but if anyone in our hemisphere can pull it off, it’s OTS. That’s a big if.

#23 Kansas City Thiefs, Chaos Renegade, Arktoris. 3040k, 1460k skills on 16 players. 3 relevant injuries. This team is stacked but never seems to perform at optimal level. Still, they’ve been getting better every season, if only incrementally.

JackassRampant Power Rankings
Season 25 Preseason Power Rankings
Part 2: the Muddled Middle

#22 Phull-o-s’elfia Egos, High Elf, Arcayn. 2590k, 930k skills on 16 players. This team is ready to make a run. I’d put them higher, but last season’s atrocious output makes me a little gun-shy.

#21 Cleaved Land Bedlam, Chaos Chosen, captainmalkor. 2530k, 1060k skills on 15 players. 1 relevant injury. I have to say I’m not impressed. Too many ballers, not enough hitters. A little Dodge here and there, not enough to make a theme but spread out on cog types as if it were. But the coach is solid, so the team is a threat.

#20 Cincinatti Hydras, Dark Elf, rodney_dangerfield. 2590k, 890k skills on 16 players. 1 relevant injury. This is a lean and mean contender team, but there are lots of those in this league. A nice collection of Guard cogs and effective strikers. Less ball focus than most elf teams.

#19 Smaltimore Bedaines, Dwarf, thoralf. 2430k, 800k skills on 16 players. This team is at the dangerous end of its curve, and thoralf is an astute student of the game, but they’re not really among the league’s big boys, because, well, they’re Dwarfs.

#18 San Foulcisco 69’ers, Necromantic, Nicodemus1. 2750k, 1080k skills on 16 players. 4 relevant injuries. This team is incredibly strong, but all that damage makes some of their key players less desirable.

#17 Pittsburgh Steelcurs, Orc, Kzarik. 2400k, 930k skills on 16 players. This is a lean, mean killa team, which should be a contender in the thick-around-the-middle AFC North.

#16 Las Vegas Sinners, Dark Elf, Doofr. 2850k+, 1070k skills plus three skill rolls on 16 players. 1 relevant injury. This team is always dangerous, but Dark Elves in general tend to struggle in the playoffs and these guys have been to the big dance too many times, only to go home alone. Time to make some noise, fellas.

#15 Shytown Leapers, Slann, Tzalaran. 2660k, 1020k skills on 15 players. 3 relevant injuries. The Leapers can take over any game, but they’re kinda fragile.

#14 Hot Arizona Sticky, Nurgle, Amon242. 2690k, 1020k skills on 16 players. 2 relevant injuries on the same player. A well-built Nurgle team with a crazy killer rotter: what’s not to like? These guys always make some noise, but their division is topheavy.

#13 Houston Treants, Wood Elf, Bazakastine. 2360k, 660k skills on 16 players. Wood Elves are competitive as heck right out the gate, but holding it together is always the real challenge. That said, Baz gonna Baz, and I betcha they’ll sneak their way up a few spots if they get half a break.

#12 Denver Brontos, Lizardman jmonforton. 2700k, 1150k skills on 16 players. 2 relevant injuries. A solid Lizardman squad, slightly slowed, but with no shortage of quality players. Nice Saurus squad, though the draft pick is rather vulnerable without Block.

#11 Atlatl Flechettes, Lizardman, Nelphine. 2460k, 930k skills on 16 players. Good-looking team, very tight. Should be holstering another re-roll though, so they can pile on sometimes.

JackassRampant Power Rankings
Season 25 Preseason Power Rankings
Part 3: the Top Ten

#10 Noo Squigland Punchdrunx, Orc, JackassRampant. 2850k, 1370k skills on 16 players. 1 relevant injury. Weez kummin’ fer ya, Robo, an’ weez sharpund owr kleetz!

#9 DecayBay Bloateneers, Nurgle, FRSHMN. 2650k, 1160k skills on 15 players. 1 relevant injury. Dude, that team is hella buff. They should be able to dominate the NFCS kiddie pool with ease. But ya never kno-ow!

#8 Jakesonville Jortles, High Elf, mrt1212. 2980k, 1170k skills on 16 players. 3 relevant injuries all on the main blitzer. This team is always a contender, but has yet to take the brass ring. They are reloaded and mostly fresh. The sky’s the limit.

#7 Witchington Paleskins, Dark Elf, Garcangel. 2680k, 1000k skills on 16 players. This is a terrifying team. Are those Blitzers really elves? They look like AG4 Humans, with all those S skills. Well done, Garcangel!

#6 Green Baynana Grabbers, Simyin, Happygrue. 2650k, 1090k skills on 15 players. 2 relevant injuries. Happygrue is always dangerous, and this is his best Simyin squad yet. But they’re still Simyin and they’re always just one bad turn away from the wheels coming off.

#5 Destroit Lynels, Chaos Dwarf, Dashergeaux. 2410k, 1030k skills on 15 players. 2 relevant injuries. This squad is starting to get to scary mode. And they’re lean, too. But as with any Chaos Dwarf team, they’re the wrong two Casualties away from being trash.

#4 Miami Coronablights, Skaven, Relezite. 2420k, 940k skills on 15 players. 1 relevant injury. This team is stacked beyond belief with crazy stats, but is weak on core skills. I’m betting on the former to mean more than the latter, given that it’s Relezite at the helm.

#3 Los Angeles Glams, High Elf, Stimme. 2810k. 1110k skills on 16 players. 4 relevant injuries between the two main blitzers. This team has hella great potential, look at all that speed! And that’s *after* losing their MA8 Thrower!

#2 C’attle C’haos, Chaos Chosen, MenonaLoco. 2830k, 1170k skills on 16 players. 1 relevant injury. These guys are lacking in a few spots (cough, Sure Hands, cough), but they won the AFC on their nasty can-openers and could have had a shot in the Super Bowl but for the lack of Austin Cabrito. If only, huh?

#1 New York Wrecks, Chaos Chosen, Robocoyote. 2910k, 1280k skills on 16 players. 1 relevant injury. The division has suddenly gotten harder, and the cross-division matchups offer no safe harbor, so the champs should cherish their trophy, and enjoy this first-place spot while it lasts.

Using a (33-ranking) scoring system, we get:
NFCW: 31 + 30 + 19 + 15 = 95.
AFCE: 32 + 29 + 23 + 5 = 89.
NFCN: 28 + 27 + 18 + 1 = 74.
AFCS: 25 + 20 + 8 + 4 = 57.
AFCN: 16 + 14 + 13 + 12 = 55.
AFCW: 21 + 17 + 10 + 7 = 55.
NFCE: 26 + 11 + 9 + 6 = 52.
NFCS: 24 + 22 + 3 + 2 = 51.

AFCE vs NFCN: 163
AFCS vs NFCW: 152
AFCN vs NFCE: 107
AFCW vs NFCS: 106

NFCN vs NFCW: 169
AFCE vs AFCS: 146
AFCN vs AFCW: 110
NFCE vs NFCS: 103

Lorebass's schedule includes 8 games against the top 6, and 4 more against teams in the top half (plus another one against a team in the teens and one against a lower-rated team). Say a prayer for him. This metric gives Garcangel the edge for easiest schedule over FRSHMN.

NBFL Season 25 Preview

Once again it is time for another NBFL season to kick off, and this time we're all chasing the defending champion New York Wrecks. But with a new season comes new teams, players, and schedules, so perhaps lady luck with favor someone else this time.

In case you missed our preview shows, here are the recaps:
NFC Portion
AFC Portion

With most of the analysis out of the way, I'll just skim through the predictions:


NFC

NFC East

1. Witchington Paleskins
2. Phull-o-s'elfia Egos
3. Dallas Crowbar
4. New York Kroaks

Garc claims back to back division titles, but Arc rebounds after last season's debacle to keep it close.

NFC North

1. Destroit Lynels
2. Green Baynana Grabbers
3. Shytown Leapers
4. Mangledsota Many-Men

The Lynels stick to their winning formula, but the Grabbers rebound behind the mighty Joseph Broadnax Jr. [TCU] and take them to the wire.

NFC South

1. Decay Bay Bloateneers
2. Atlatl Flechettes
3. Nawlins Lost Saints
4. Carolin' Reapers

Decay Bay and Atatl continue their rivalry from last season and stay on top of the division.

NFC West

1. Los Angeles Glams
2. C'attle C'haos
3. San Foulcisco 69'ers
4. Hot Arizona Sticky

It will surprise no one when the Glams and C'attle compete for the division title again, but both Zona and San Foul won't go down easy.

AFC

AFC East

1. Noo Squigland Punchdrunx
2. New York Wrecks
3. Miami Coronablights
4. Buffaelo Khills

JR's orcs return with a vengeance and claim the East, but reigning league MVP/fan favorite/dirt bag Broadway Joe Bryant [HAW] won't make it easy on them.

AFC North

1. Cleaved Land Bedlam
2. Pittsburgh Steelcurs
3. Cincinnati Hydras
4. Smaltimore Bedaines

Led by draft steal Tevin Paul [CAL], despite what the critics/haters think, Cleaved Land manages to stave off the newly arrived Steelcurs and returning Hydras for the division crown.

AFC South

1. Jakesonville Jortles
2. Houston Treants
3. Titannesse Kraken's
4. Icelandic Dolts

The Jortles have a very clear path to the playoffs, thanks to two rookie teams in the division, and hope to finally get over the hump.

AFC West

1. Las Vegas Sinners
2. San Dogo Chompers
3. Denver Brontos
4. Kansas City Thiefs

The Sinners will continue to be strong as long as their dual Ag6 stars are around, but this might be the most hotly contested division across the board.


NFC Playoffs

1. Witchington Paleskins
2. Destroit Lynels
3. Decay Bay Bloateneers
4. Los Angeles Glams
5. C'attle C'haos
6. Green Baynana Grabbers

A solid mix of bash and ball, but both Decay Bay and C'attle claw their way through the wildcard and divisional rounds. Thus they meet in the NFC Championship game, where there will be more tentacles than in that questionable adult video you watched the one weekend you had the place to yourself and got a little drunk and adventurous.

AFC Playoffs

1. Jakesonville Jortles
2. Noo Squigland Punchdrunx
3. Cleaved Land Bedlam
4. Las Vegas Sinners
5. New York Wrecks
6. Pittsburgh Steelcurs

Pretty sure I had Denver in the last wildcard spot last night, but oh well. The Jortles end up meeting the Sinners in the conference title game, as both elven teams are able to survive the gauntlet (but not unscathed, of course).


NBFL Super Bowl 25

C'attle C'haos vs Jakesonville Jortles

The Super Bowl features two teams who have been to the big game but were unable to come away with the victory (multiple times, in the Jortle's case), so one of these two will automatically get the job done this time. It'll be a classic high TV elf vs chaos battle, with tents, leaps, dodges, claws, and everything else you would expect. But in the end, there can only be one...


NBFL Super Bowl 25 Champion: Jakesonville Jortles

The 'Fight for Five!'* campaign ends with coach mrt finally winning the Super Bowl.
