Wizard Goes Out With a Bang!
The days of Blood Bowl Wizards are coming to an end, at least for now. I might be mistaken, but today could be their last day on fumbbl.

Last night, I hired a wizard determined to go out with a bang. My Elven Union squad E = Mc2 faced Radge's Nurgle side Rotting Music, giving away 300 TV. After receiving the kick managed E = Mc2 to hold a 1 - 0 lead at the opening of the second half.

But no sooner had RM secured the ball, the wizard blew their cage clear off the pitch with an almighty explosion!

The fireball singed the groin of ball carrier and superstar Pertigor Arron Carter https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=9377541 so badly than his regeneration ability proved useless- We won't be seeing him for a while!

Caught in the blast radious, the swift-footed veteran wrestler Ice Cream For Crow https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=11172945 was knocked unconcious, while his fellow veteran wrestler Pestigor Vikingarna https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=11375126 was stunned. The ball was left bouncing in wide open field behind the shaken Rotting Music line. Once E = Mc2 players slipped through the gaps, Rotting Music were left all but denfenceless.

'I've never seen anything like this before!' exclaimed a startled and dismayed Radge. And with the retiring of the wizards, we make never see the likes of it again! So pointy hats off to anonymous spell slinger for securing a big win and going out with a bang! We'll miss you!

I really hope not, GW have said it will return and should remain in place for competitive play (according to Purplegoo). There's been loads of comment on Piling On but removing the wizard would be an absolute disaster for big competitions (e.g. the Ulthuan). Agility and low strength sides will have very little chance when going up against big bash sides. Once they cage that's it - cue very boring drives :( Other inducements just don't substitute for it.

Secret League wizards are NOT going away! ;)

It would be very un-GW to comment on competitive play, I can't imagine them ever making a recommendation like that.

When it was noted the Wizard had been omitted from the main book and the DZ, it was shouted about on the BB internet. GW (in the shape of Andy Hoare) simply recommended that the community uses the CRP until Wizzies appear in the rules. It was a very GW comment; oh, you noticed? Sure, just use the CRP dude. Your league commissioner should use common sense. That sort of thing (I'm paraphrasing). GW aren't the sort of company to care about the minutiae, BB nerds are. They're not really the company for the hardcore you find on FUMBBL. :D

I'm hugely impressed with BigC / Kalimar's pace of updating FUMBBL to BB2016. It's so fast that we're actually moving too fast for the rules! We might even be in a position where we turn off Wizards only for the exact same rules to arrive in DZ2 whenever it gets a release (erm, soon! I guess)? I agree with DrDeath that the Wizard (as per CRP) performs a very important task in environments where teams will be playing uphill over a few games (KOs, league seasons), and I hope the rules aren't too different when they reappear.

I think the most sensible way for FUMBBL to deal with Wizards would be to leave CRP rules switched on until we know what they will look like in BB2016. Hedging our bets, as it were, makes sense to me. After all, that's exactly what we've done with star players; not all of those guys are in the new rules yet, but we all assume they will be and FUMBBL appaears to have left them all turned on for now?

All that said, all power to the boss. He and Kalimar do a fantastic job.

My Woodies who have won many a match thanks to the Wizard said goodbye to him (for now anyway) as Jokaero's Dwarves made good use of him to beat us in the UI first round. Yes, Dwarves. Karma baby!

If (when) the Wizard comes back, even if slightly nerfed or higher priced, the Age of Elves will be complete.

But what about the kardz?

Wizard is ridiculously undercosted.
