In the absence of Milford, I will offer some predictions for the upcoming FUMBBL Cup. This is the biggest tournament on FUMBBL and could well be the last major as we know it. Post the team you are taking and I will give them the once over and a‘likely champion’ rating.

Likely Champion ratings:
5 Skulls = Front runner. Have to be aiming to win it, but anything less than the semi is a failure.
4 Skulls = Definite contender. With a little bit of luck, could go all the way. Should be aiming for at least the quarters.
3 Skulls = Either some brilliant coaching or some insane luck is needed to be champ. The quarters would be a very good effort.
2 Skulls = Some brilliant coaching and some insane luck is needed. Fourth round would be a definite achievement.
1 Skull = Leicester City were 5000-1 to win the Prem in 2015. just saying...
0 Skull = Well done for entering - everyone should. If you get to the third round, you should definitely consider it a job well done. If you win it, Satan will be skating to work to quote Red Dwarf

This team would be standard dwarf fare, but for an amazing runner. Str4 and Ag4 is a seriously powerful combination. The other problem with them being standard dwarf fare, is that standard dwarf fare is very powerful. 10 guard, 6 mb and a dp. My favourite player is the leaping, wrestle, strip blitzer. A lot of coaches might not see that coming and having seen a recent game, I know Dionysian will take on that 4+ leap. A very good coach makes this team a definite contender, but watch out for elves with a wizard and possibly eldril on top.

A great entry, guided I must begin by saying, by a superb coach. Strider knows how to build a team and given the limitations of the race, this one is built as well as any. On the plus side, they have an ag3 ogre carrier, who is going to be tough to stop. On the down side, 'only' three block from eight ogres and a fairly high rating, especially after the last ogre comes back means they are liable to get wizzed, which means elves will fancy their chances. Were it not for the coach, I would be rating this one between zero and one skull.

This Nurgle team have definte potential, but look about ten games short (if they go well) of being ready for a major (the deadline is Wed, hint, hint). As they stand, they have a lovely carrier and a lot of nearly players. There's a lot of players one skill from being great and close in SPP. Were I you, I'd risk the potential damage (regen is pretty good) and play a few. This could be a four skull team if a flood of games went well, but at the moment they are neither bashy enough or offering enough alternatives to be a serious contender.

Likely Champ rating (at the moment) 2 skulls

This is an interesting team, as they are almost min-maxed Wood Elves. They have everything needed to get the job done, without having anything spectacular. I would imagine they would almost be better off playing up a bit and getting a wiz etc, where the woodies natural potential can sack and retrieve the ball. The oppo they would probably least like to face would be well coached necro/dwarves etc at about the same rating, where they don't get inducements. Storr is clearly an excellent coach from his recent box trophy success, though I did see a recent major defeat of his and thought he made a few errors (which I wasn't expecting). Majors are different to 'normal' games and I am sure that will have been invaluable experience. I am also sure that with his clear ability, Storr will have taken a lot from that. For the team, I'd go 3 skulls. With the coach...

Just to be fair, here's my own team I am entering. They are a lot more fun to play than my nurgle, which is why they are getting another run. Should I progress to a decent point, I would have to look at sacking the saw as he is frankly a liability, though still potentially devastating. Either claw/mb or stripper elves are our potential achilles heels.

A solid elf team with a good winning record. Again, if that were my team, I'd be risking a couple more games to try and get those catchers skilled up. They are probably best described as 'solid if unspectacular'. The str4 blitzer is nice but with armour 7 will be a target and the lovely ag5 blitzer needs a partner - he's either sacking or retrieving but can't do both.

Nervously copies and pastes https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=997928 just making up numbers, love playing Bloodbowl whichever way the dice go (preferably my way as the skillz are lacking yo) And a major debut!

Current form in cups not great, only just got to the 2nd round of the 5th RRR that I've entered. Trying to apply pressure to the opponent Smile

Think I was drunk when I took SS on BOB instead of dodge first or SF

Orcs (like necro, skaven and chorf) can get everything they need for around 2000 tv, which is where they can get their edge over nurgle, chaos, wood elves etc. For me this Orc team are close, but not quite there, mainly due to a couple of dodgy skill choices. The dodge sf bob would be better off with g mb for 20tv less and ju on a blitzer would have been better with either d or ss (or just sf). Still a nice team though with a good winning record. With a good draw, I can see them advancing to round 4.
