oh crap, 13 is unlucky number. we are screwed.


My goblins are usually unlucky enough, maybe double unluck becomes luck Smile

Anyway, 7 goblin teams is quite nice. It's a green tide. 7 chances for goblins to succeed Smile

I've been having a quick look at the break down of the draw and whether one side might represent a slightly easier path to glory. Below I have listed which half of the draw the teams who came out as four or five skulls are in, so you can get an idea who you will have to outlast if you want to make the final.

Bazakastine K’Chain Che’Malle Lizard Top
Cdassak Nuffle Embraces The Foul Nurgle Bottom
Doclystria Lupus Necrotus Necro Top
Relezite Slim Chance Brigade Elven Union Top
Joost Tlaxtlan Lost Lizards Lizard Top
Malmir Hell's Pavement(rated by SideshowBob) Lizard Top
Nachtogen Cult Of Shadows Chaos Bottom

4 skulls
Coach Team Race
Dionysian Clarity Of Purpose Dwarf Bottom
Storr B.F. Volspark Wood Elf Bottom
Rawlf Woodhead Wanderers Wood Elf Top
Uedder Mad Screamers Elven Union Top
Purplechest Short Wild Purple Chaos Dwarf Bottom
Purplegoo I Don’t Like Your Face Orc Top
The_Murker Choo-Throo Evry-Thaan Skaven Bottom
Gamesetlmatch Assassinating Adventures Dark Elf Bottom
Dolphinandrew Chin Ticklers Dwarf Top
PeteW Ultimate Justice League Orc Bottom
Bram Wandering Feathers High Elf Top

The five skull teams dominate the top half of the draw (boooooo) whereas the four skull teams are fairly evenly split (one more in bottom than top), so they bottom might represent a slightly easier route. However, there are loads of great teams and coaches who didn't get reviewed in both halves and there's no way everything will go to form anyway. Upsets will definitely happen so while a guide, overall I don't think there's too much in it.

First Round matches of note:

Wandering Feathers (Bram) v Chin Ticklers (Dolphinandrew) Two teams who were rated four skulls go head to head in the second round (their first). There will be no less than ten strength increases on the pitch, four for the elves and six for the dwarves. I think the catchers might prove the difference and I am tipping the elves to win this one.

Quick and Dirty (Kfoged) v Chaos Waste Crushers (Sigmar1) On paper this looks like a straightforward win for chaos. The elves are down to 11 (inc two loners), however the key positionals are all there for the elves including a nasty 7,5,5,8 blitzer. Plus this draw actually helps them as they are getting loads of money to flesh out their squad and they have an excellent coach. I do fancy Chaos to just have too much for the elves, but I think it will be very close and a reversal would not be too surprising at all.
