Agreed but impossible. People would, of course, endlessly remake the team until they got claw.

Well, if they really wanted to do that, ok.
It's really time-consuming.
Also, starting Claw is not so OP.
It's unlikely that, even remaking the team several times, there would be more than 1-2 Claws.
And still, without Block and Mb, Claw is not so OP, especially considering the roster.
It's not a fast team, it lacks starting skills, so I think that, even considering the "I remake team until I get Claws" scenario would not be OP.
Moreover, with Season Redraft it would be hard to exploit the roster.

Do people feel we will see all 4 "chosen of" teams, and vanilla chaos will be retired?

I don't think so. Chaos Undivided makes sense, according to the fluff.

I think he is just another Chaos star; sure he may play for Rats as well but I expect he will be in the Khorne book.

And NO ONE ever made you play any of those High TV teams. You always had the option to opt-out of building your team that high or accepting any games against teams that high.

So YOUR PREFERENCES have always been available to you and continue to be there. Yet you roll your eyes at a level of play at the TOP of the game? Please.

Your lack of appreciation for the EPIC battles of fully developed teams and disdain for a few "lucky" skill rolls in a game of rolling "lucky" dice denies the game its true Major Leagues Level of play relegating the Sport(game) to Children's Recreation League levels of play.

How could a Sport so popular that it is played around the World in Huge Stadiums full of Fans NOT reach a level of NBA Basketball, Premier League Soccer, the NFL etc etc etc... but only exist at 1350 TV or so?

Why hasn't Renaldo been fired for being too expensive by now? Why isn't he playing with a new team of Rookies every season? Maybe it is because it is RIDICULOUS to do such a thing IRL and in the game.

Why do players have the ability to have 6 skills (sometimes 7 in some versions of the rules) at 100's of SPPS if the game is not MEANT to advance teams towards that HIGH TV?

Nobody has ever tried to hinder YOUR FUN. But you cheerlead for hindering the fun of others. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Yeah I just plain disagree with all that. I never liked the fact that online bloodbowl had an endless infinite bloat style default game mode in the first place. I feel like redrafting and the level up system get rid of a lot of stuff I really just didn't care for about playing the game in an online setting.

Your MONSTER LEGEND status is riding on the team name, I suppose. How teams play getting totally turned upside down at high tv combined with the random stat rolls made it always feel to me that the most defining feature of teams was how many carefully groomed game breaking stat freaks they had.

With the new systems, you avoid things like chaos going from blundering doofuses to elite murder squad because of the fact that they have more good skills to take and infinite opportunity to earn them. And having things like a double +AG Bull Centaur or what-have-you that could really shake up the way a team plays has a direct opportunity cost instead of just being a combination of time and luck.

Overall my experience with 2k+ TV has been pretty much just eye rolling, I always felt like the game just fell apart and just 'didn't work'. So a little 'franchise mode' resigning of players and resetting to a modest TV sounds much preferable.

No. Or maybe I should say NO.

Besides... I don't use Caps Lock I use the Shift key.
And I do so for emphasis not YELLING. There are ZERO exclamation points in singular (!) or triplicate (!!!) form as evidence.
And this is a FORUM, not a CHAT ROOM. Those stupid rules of internet grammar do not apply here.

YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!! (ok that was shouted but Gandalf was shouting and I am quoting/paraphrasing him.)

Grammar is more important on a forum than a chat room. The posts are not as throwaway..

However if you are using Khorne you are encouraged to use caps for in game chat with such comments as "MAIM HIM" when you are about to blitz, "DIE WEAKLING" as you fluke some dice or "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD" when an opponent player dies on a gfi. Perhaps while the other coach types "WAAAAAGH!" and bellows at home.

I doubt it. Khorne is a favorite for GW. My guess is that they want to make it a tier 1 team and make it the most pain inducing team at the same time.

Unchanneled Fury, Claw, Mighty Blow on the Blood Spawn
Mighty Blow on the warriors
Khorngors and/or marauders with frenzy


Well look at that. Somehow I managed to guess one correctly. Mark the date on the calendar for posterity.

Now I am just waiting to see what the perk is for being favored of Khorne.

The last thing we need to learn are if Khorne has access to an Apothecary, and how much are the rerolls. Once we have that, they can be added to the official team list.

That is the secret information they will give you in the Spike! Magazine. I expect 60k and Yes.

We also need to know their skill access.

I expect 70k RRs like Nurgle.
