On a slightly different note, this may be the last tourney before bb2020 seasons. Hence best to get using them potions etc. They will be more or less useless once seasons come.


A couple of freak players, while they may well win a game or too, can't hide the fact that this team is past its best. Three niggles just invite fouls and despite two outstanding str 5 players, they are both injured as is the awesome catcher. I'm glad you're taking them as they deserve a last hurrah, however it isn't happening.

Likely champ rating: 2 skulls

I'm going to unforlorn underworld with "The Stunts that are Cunning"

https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=912427

The one and only Underworld team to put your hopes and dreams on this Fumbbl Cup!


On the face of it, this team could manage a few wins if they get a good draw. Underworld sit well at this rating and do have everything they need. Hiring a gutter to go with the grandads should be job one. Two nasty killers bodes well, but the win rate is a big concern, hence the rating.

Likely Champ rating: 1 skull

Now we're getting going! This team is simply superb. They remind me of my own Lizard team, but better. Three str6 saurus! That is simply outrageous and should have you all wondering about staff bias... (not really). Two ag4 skinks as well. albeit one with a slight limp. The only slight weakness I see, and this purely comes down to preference on how to build a team, is only three break tackle on the saurus. Could they get tied up? God I hope so by someone not in my half of the draw. Awesome team and coach. Definitely one to fear. But do they have a ball and chain and a chainsaw I hear you ask. No, they do not.

Likely champ rating: 5 Skulls (be afraid)

This is interesting. I clicked on this one all set to give it five skulls. Last year's champ. Scroll at the ready. Bunch of killers. Then I noticed a rookie pest. No problem. I decided to count the pests and blow me if there weren't only three (inc the rookie). Now as a Nurgle coach of some experience, I'd say that's a problem. Despite the two other pests being superb, and all the warriors being absolutely nailed on buff, in my experience Nurgle live or die by their pests. So here's Milford's...I mean Malmir's...top tip. Target the pestis. If you can get those two out, the game could well be yours. Having said that Cdassak is a great coach and the team could well go all the way. But I have more hope now than I did when I first clicked.

Likely Champ rating: 4 skulls

Norse are always known as the classic glass cannon for a reason. Potentially devastating but on another day devastated. This lot are built well and have an impressive win record. I can definitely see them going a few rounds before the dice turn against them. With a kind draw, who knows? Though I'd say it's more likely they go out in round three and leave the winner in such a state that they follow out the round after.

Likely Champ: 3 skulls

Another interesting build choice for this chaos team and I don't mean in terms of skills, which are all sensible, but in terms of numbers. It didn't feel like a 232 team when I looked at it and then I saw they have 16 players. Do they need 16 players? I'd be hoping to win the first game and then sack two to get to 14 and 220ish. At 220 ish they are a threat as they are nicely built and have everything they need, including a standout ag5 carrier. I would fear for them if they got a hard draw first round due to bloat, but if they trim then who knows? A very impressive win record too.

Likely champ 3 skulls (four if they trim dead wood)

As necro go, this is as good as it gets. Part of me always thinks necro should be nicely sitting around the 2000 mark, with everything they need and still getting inducements, but I can't see what I would have turned down in his place. Every key positional is just awesome. Two ag4 wolves. A move 9 ghoul. A str4 ag 4 wight. The list goes on. They may have got nobbled by some chancer Lizards last time out, but this team have it all and a very good coach.

I love this thread, great initiative, Malmir!

So many awesome and well-known teams out there.

If anyone considers himself a proper Fumbbl'er but does not join the FUMBBL Cup, I want to hear a very good excuse for it!


A well-respected team with a long history and a very good coach. Previous major winners and it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see them pull off something similar. They are very nice without being spectacular. A bit like the dwarves I reviewed early on though, the problem is Woodies are naturally great. Add to that, two very nice Wardancers and a natural one turner, alongside some nice other catchers, and they will (and should) expect to run deep. I don't see them winning it though - I think that rating will catch up with them at some point, if attrition doesn't first...

Champ rating: four skulls

That's it for now folks, otherwise I might lose my awesome insights. I will do the rest, and any other new additions, over the course of the weekend. It looks like the FUMBBL cup will be an absolute cracker. If you haven't entered, throw something in. If you don't have a serious contender, throw something in to knock out serious contenders and go down in legend. I still remember my first fumbbl cup. I got to round three after only a few months on the site and came up against one of the favourites. I had people PMing me, telling me to hire this star and that star with the inducements I was getting. I did and won. I went out a round or so later I think, but I still remember the buzz of beating a quality player with 30 specs cheering for me. As the lottery says, 'It could be you'...

Thank you Malmir!

The truth is that I considered using the Fumbbl Cup pize to bring back the retired killer Pesti. I had some second thoughts to keep it for use during the tourney on either him or any new loss. Your analysis (and the coming of BB2020) cleared things out for me, I'm bringing him back and going all in!

I am lost as to what to even apply!

Of course there is my chunky Dwarf team:
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=374834
But it seems unlikely i can find an R game to get the missing back.

My CD team which is fairly scrappy looking:
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=213966

Or even my old and loved Chaos squad:
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=70390
Which i have clearly taken some drunken choices on and are now a mix of Chaos and elves. Which could be fun.

Any advice?
