After a brief break, the VODcast/Podcast/live twitch stream 'One World, One Blood Bowl' returns,



Live Sunday 27th 9pm GMT/UTC on https://www.twitch.tv/purplechest

and then 24 hours later on YouTube and spotify (and hopefully soon other podcasting services, im working on it)



The subject will be the World Cup ruleset as we know it so far, the good, the bad, the meta. And i hope to also discuss the GGToor ruleset and format, a recent esports Tournament series.

The panel:

PurpleChest: Possibly the most over rated blowhard in Blood Bowl.
AndyDavo: The mind behind the GGToor ruleset, also a TT player of renown and recent BB2 'chalice' winner.
Joemanji: Legendary TT coach, NAF functionary and deep thinker, the man behind the Ironmanji rules.
Caolan_G: An opinionated Irish TT and online coach.

So come join in the chat we love to see people there live, or ask any question here and i'll try to bring it up, or watch/listen afterwards, whatever suits really. It's your life, I'm not telling you how to live it.

See subject line. I also think that I will not be fond of Cindy.

I'm going to petition Games Workshop to change the name of Blood Bowl to "Bomber and Friends!"

Call me crazy, and I haven't looked back at my games to confirm this, but I feel as though I've been facing Bomber Dribblesnot a lot lately. Does anyone else feel this? Win or lose, I'm just tired of facing him. And yes I just lost handily to a Bomber and Friends team of Orcs. They were absolutely poetic in their dismantling of my Tomb Kings team, and by the third or fourth turn I had about half my team left on the pitch. It wasn't all Bomber, but he certainly was a catalyst. So yes, I'm writing a rage post and am feeling a little biased.

Honestly, am I the only one who is feeling that the Star Player "meta" is not entirely good for the game? I'm just worried that some combinations of players will be too good to pass up and the game stagnates. I've found that there is a small core of Star Players that are being used and even they are being eclipsed by Bomber. Is it that the Bombardier trait is that good, or that Bomber can play for teams that greatly benefit from his services more than any other Star? A combination I'm sure. I'm curious if any of you reading this believe that Bomber is becoming a little too common and may be too effective for his cost. I'm sure many of you hold the opinion that it's cool, and I'm imagining things.

If anyone out there played Guild Ball, I think you'll understand what I'm getting at. A cautionary tale of a game with a host of characters of which only a few were used because of their effectiveness. I'm sure Blood Bowl will not go down the same path or share the same fate as Guild Ball, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little worried about it.

Gardiens de la lumière - VA BB Club

Le temps est clément pour ce match, avec les demi-elfes à la réception. Le soleil n’éblouira ainsi pas les 13 000 spectateurs en se reflétant dans la lame impeccable de la non moins impeccable tronçonneuse d’Helmut Wulf, qui lui est dégueulasse, comme à son habitude.

Liste des effectifs :
GL : Orzonoth, Gibelina des Champs, Aubelet de Clamecy, Helloysis Jouvenel, Guillaume Gaiant, Degthaak, Khonkox, Qri’zgith Rage breaker, I’grak, Galmaxaaz, Ghakzeg, Vazraz, Dath’toth

VBBC : Ugros Bonnet, Jul Masson, Manu N’Thym, Matt Debuch, Quent Lecreuche, Lucas Chevalier, Marius Noobici, Aly Abeid, Allan Longuet, Mat Picouleau, Aymen Boutouatou, Jazon Bertholmiette, Savannah Derrin

Première période

La rencontre s’ouvre avec un placement plutôt atypique de la part du coach felix_le, qui décide de placer son minotaure, enfin, son « changelin » (m’est avis qu’il s’agit juste ici d’un stratagème pour faire entrer un homme-taureau sur le terrain mais passons) en retrait. Les premiers contacts seront assurés par Aubeley de Clamesy, qui s’est spectaculairement entrainé avant le début du match, et deux petits machins insignifiants. Du côté Valenciennois, on a droit à une formation en pointe, avec une aile gauche légèrement plus faible, pas sûr que les genoux tiennent. Le coup d’envoi est donné et le VBBC nous fait tout de suite part de leurs intentions en envahissant littéralement le milieu de terrain ! La réplique ne se fait pas attendre, et, comme souvent avec ces mystérieux hommes à quatre bras, les attaquants semblent s’arrêter d’eux-mêmes, comme hypnotisés. Nouvelle tentative de trouver un espace côté gauche, infructueuse, mais qui a le mérite d’avoir fait reculer la défense, la question qui se pose maintenant est : le VBBC parviendra-t-il à exploiter cette faille, alors que leurs joueurs se retrouvent au milieu d’une potentielle baston générale ? Pas tout de suite il semble, mais alors qu’Orzonoth s’avance pour couper l’équipe en deux, Ugros Bonnet prend son élan avant de se propulser avec sa jambe droite vers le côté opposé à sa course, ET BAM, DANS SA GUEU***, incroyable manœuvre acrobatique qui envoie le changelin chez l’apothicaire. La témérité de ce dernier aura causé sa perte face au travail d’équipe ! De plus, Matt Debuch, oublié sur l'aile, parvient à se faufiler pour étirer encore plus le placement défensif, le touchdown parait de plus en plus inévitable. Et effectivement, c’est encore une fois une action collective qui se déroule sous nos yeux ébahis, Bonnet encore une fois repousse Jouvenel, chargé de protéger l’aile, pour permettre la passe courte de son lanceur vers Manu N’Thym, qui lui-même va nous gratifier d’une superbe course pour transmettre le ballon à Debuch, profitant d’une situation de 2 contre 1. TOUCHDOWN Valencienne, au 4ème tour. Les rôles sont inversés alors que le numéro 1 fait son retour sur le terrain. Très beau botté d’Allan Longuet, dans le fond du terrain, pour faire perdre du temps. Les gardiens sont déterminés à effacer les erreurs du passé, et imposent un énorme défi physique à leur frêles adversaires (on notera la sortie de Savannah Derrin). Les chaotiques avancent à une vitesse complétement folle alors que les demi-elfes ont grand peine à se replacer, la cage parfaite sur le côté gauche (enfin droit quoi) est quasi impénétrable, et malgré un blitz de Jazon Bertholmiette qui réveillera les fans, les pouvoirs magiques terrifiants des gardiens (ainsi qu’un aimant à ballon) leur permet de marquer à la dernière seconde.

Seconde période

Rentrée en jeu d’Helmut Wulf ! A voir ce qu’il va être capable de proposer sur cette nouvelle phase de défense. Cette fois-ci, le botté est sur la ligne d’engagement (quel match des botteurs), mais intelligemment, Jouvenel le fait rentrer dans la moitié de terrain adverse avant qu’il ne touche le sol, forçant l’arbitre à donner le ballon aux gardiens, qui le mettent bien au chaud dans les pattes de Vazraz. La tactique, peu importe le camp, n’a pas changé, et on se rend coup pour coup. Malheureusement, à ce petit jeu, ce sont forcement les gardiens qui s’imposent. Malgré tout, face à cette farouche résistance, ces derniers décident de délocaliser l’attaque à droite du terrain, et d’envoyer Helmut faire dodo au passage (C’EST PLUS HELMUT WULF, C’EST HELMUT NULF, T’ES NUUUL HELMUT). En infériorité numérique, le VBBC joue la carte de la carte de la pression, en contournant littéralement la ligne, au prix de la sécurité ! Un simple blitz, et s’en est fini de la défense, désorientée et avec personne devant pour stopper la bête infernale. Personne ? Non, le petit receveur star de l’équipe résiste encore et toujours et parvient à subtiliser le ballon en se mettant dans un coin ! Quoiqu’il arrive, le ballon doit sortir du terrain pour éviter le touché ! Quel sacrifice héroïque pour celui qui souffre encore de sa blessure. Et c’est fait, Degthaak l’envoie valser, mais le ballon lui, renvoyé par un elfe apprenti lanceur, rebondit au centre du terrain, tout est à refaire ! Le ballon est récupéré par le duo Jouvenel-des Champs, qui livrent décidément une sacrée performance. Il ne reste que quelques secondes, les uns luttant contre la prolongation qui offrirait le ballon à leurs adversaires, les autres repoussant de toute leur force l’ennemi. Esquive de blocage, hypnose, blitz, transmission eeeeeet TOUCHDOWN ! Victoire des Gardiens de la lumière ! Ils continuent leur belle épopée face à une équipe réputée ! Valencienne subit aujourd’hui une triste désillusion, mais il ne faut pas trop nourrir les regrets, le match suivant, avec ces blessures, aurait pu être difficile.

Cette 9e journée s'est cloturé hier soir, 2 matchs sont en retard et devraient se jouer ce jeudi mais comme sur chaque journée, les coachs, joueurs et équipes des matchs en retard ne pourront pas bénéficier des bonus (titre mvp de la journée, bonus offensif, bonus bash)

Pour info, la deadline de la 10e journée court jusqu'au 10 décembre.



# QUELQUES INFOS EN BREF:

=> le titre de mvp de cette 9e journéeva se partager entre 2 joueurs:
- Werner Steelmaul, joueur nain des Ungdrin Ankor Klads qui réussit 2 sorties et un titre de jpv lors de son match.
- Roméo, joueur des Drowned Sharks qui obtient avec également 2 sorties et un titre de jpv, son 3e titre de meilleur joueur apres les journées 7 et 8.




=> Depuis le début de saison, 6 équipes ont remporté le contrat d'un titre sur la saison pour que leur coach et leur équipe puissent conserver à minima leur rang sur les tableaux de renommée.
- mvp j1 => Hlǫðver Skoptis / Ginger Wariors
- mvp j2 => Colin Warwick / Middenheim Vultures

- mvp j8 => Roméo / Drowned Sharks - Diana Prince / Bigoudènes Affutées - Ingrid Deprison / Hagards du Nord
- mvp j9 => Roméo / Drowned Sharks - Werner Steelmaul / Ungdrin Ankor Klads



Divisions Nord Jupiler

Rien n'est encore figé dans cette division, toutefois les Hagards du Nord ont une belle avance pour le titre de champion de division.
2 matchs entre les équipes de cette division pourrait toutefois éclaircir le classement, Les Hagards (34) du Nord contre les Dark Riders (22) ainsi que le match entre les Equarisseurs d'Altdorf (22) et les les Exhumés de Sombregué (17).

Divisions Nord Budweiser

C'est une autre histoire dans cette division, les playoffs ne sont plus accessible qu'à 3 équipes, les Guetteurs de Nagash (28), les Great Maw Reapers (29) et les Barbus Lyonnais (38).
Le titre de champion de division est d'ors et déjà assuré pour les nains de Lokragen qui fait une entrée remarquée pour sa première saison JBL.
derrière, la 2e place en coupe sera disputé par Xa (16), Vorx (16) et Thaum (18).

Divisions Sud Jupiler

Seuls les Aveuglés D'Azaanur (35) et les Scorpions de Nagash (28) peuvent finir champion de division, un joli duel à distance même si les ndc ont une belle avance.
Derrière, pas mal de possibilité encore entre les Scorpions de Nagash, les Washingt'Ork Grinskins (24), les Khorne's Runners (22) et les Sanguinaires de Massaka (18), même si ces derniers ont trés peu de chance d'aller en playoff.
Enfin, les Sky Runners (6) iront quoi qu'il arrive en challenge Kronengob

Divisions Sud Budweiser

Les playoffs ne sont plus accessible qu'aux Heaxoatl Bruisers (29), aux Quetza Rattlers (28) et aux Bigoudènes Affûtées (24).
Pour le reste tout est encore possible.

Divisions Ouest Jupiler

Pas mal de disparité dans cette division, les Ginger Warriors (38) sont à 2 doigts du titre de champion de division mais pas le droit à l'erreur car les Bertox Frolicking Frogs (30) sont en embuscade. Tous deux iront probablement en playoff même si les Fallen of Talion (21) ont encore la possibilité mathématiquement.
Les Oursons des Ardennes (19) et les Colmar Longhorn (14) joueront pour la coupe ou le challenge kronegob.
Les Infectious Cyco (4) sont depuis belle lurette qualifié pour le challenge kronengob.

Divisions Ouest Budweiser

Pas vraiment d'assurance dans cette division, excepté pour les Drowned Sharks (38) qui sont assuré de jouer les playoffs et les Tirailleurs de Tiranoc (7) qui sont eux, assuré de jouer le challenge kronengob.
Pour les autres tout reste possible mais il ne va pas falloir faire de faux pas.

Divisions Est Jupiler

Un duel entre 2 équipe de la division peut donner un peu de clarté dans cette division tres serrée ou rien n'est encore figé.
les Skarognards de Skyre (31) affrontent les Jeunes Badass Lorrains (21), une victoire skaven et ils seraient quasi champion de division mais assuré de jouer les playoffs.
Pour l'heure rien n'est encore déterminé.

Divisions Est Budweiser

Une chose simple de cette division, 3 équipe en haut et 3 équipes en bas, les Gravediggers of Hashut (30), les Orcland Big Porks (30) et les Dead Flat Beers (29) se disputeront les 2 places en playoffs et le titre de division, une seule équipe sera complètement déçu.
Derrière, les Celestials Comets (16), les Catacomb Finest (15) et les Wood Sprinters (6) se disputeront la dernière place pour la coupe et les autres joueront le challenge kronengob.

Les coupes de fin de saison sont entrées dans le moment de vérité, tandis que les équipes ayant disposé d'une dispense se confrontent aux vainqueurs des premiers matches éliminatoires.

De (plus ou moins) grosses surprises ont été à l'affiche de ce premier tour, comme le résument nos reporters ci-dessous.

Tournoi principal



Sur la partie droite du tableau, les pronostiqueurs ne s'étaient pas trompés en affirmant que les gardiens de la lumière (vainqueurs du VA BB Club dans un match joué tout en maitrise) et le Jam Delicacy (vainqueurs des Goëlands du Groënland dans un match très accroché) passeraient le premier tour.

Les adorateurs de Tzeentch vont maintenant défier la Dynastie du Soleil dans un duel qui sent la poudre. Côte Dwarfabet : 50/50 (fort probablement une côte fournie par Huggy).

Ceux de Khorne retrouveront le Mount Gunbad Crush dans une opposition de style assez flagrante. Côte Dwarfabet : 60/40 en faveur des premiers nommés, peut être à l'usure ?

Sur la partie gauche du tableau, en revanche, 2 surprises à signaler. Dans le match d'ouverture de la compétition, les Drillaz Killaz ont ainsi frustré les championnes sortantes, confirmant la malédiction qui pèse sur les anciens vainqueurs (aucun n'a réussi l'exploit de remporter 2 fois le trophée, même si l'un d'eux est revenu jouer 2 finales et en a perdu une au tirage au sort) dans un match très... surprenant. De leur côté, malgré une domination tactique évidente, les Shesha Nagas ont cedé physiquement face aux Hashut Corrupters.

Les nains noirs retrouveront donc en quart leurs cousins ingénieurs dans un match qui ne sent pas le beau jeu. Côte Dwarfabet : 60/40 en faveur des ingénieurs, mieux armés (hahaha) pour ce match-up, et dans une meilleure dynamique de saison.

Les orcs noirs, eux, se frotteront aux assassins de Leatherface, une opposition qui promet ! Côte Dwarfabet : 66/34 en faveur des elfes, entrainés à éviter les lents orcs noirs et à aller couper en deux les gobelins.


Tournoi des seconds couteaux



Signalons d'emblée que dans la partie droite du tableau, le match opposant les massacreurs de Mahrak aux Lost Spirits Shepherds a été décalé à dimanche soir, de manière à permettre - selon les 2 entraineurs - un meilleur spectacle. Dwarfabet a cependant d'ores et déjà annoncé que le futur adversaire du vainqueur de ce match serait désigné favori à 60/40, marquant ainsi la confiance envers le Foulympico, auteur d'une bonne seconde partie de saison régulière !

La surprise du tableau est venue de la qualification des Altdorf Vincdicators aux dépends des Métalliques. Les nains nordiques avaient montré de beaux progrès cette saison et ce tournoi constituait une occasion de le prouver. L'équipe ornée de plumes retrouvera en quart les Mineurs du mont Ventoux, qui partiront avec les faveurs des pronostics, 66/34 selon Dwarfabet.

Sur la partie gauche du tableau, si les 2 équipes naines l'ont emporté, les sensations laissées furent bien différentes. Concernant la confrérie de Korneliusz, une enquête pour MAGOUILLE est d'ailleurs en cours. D'honnêtes et anonymes observateurs affirment que les Firrara Tintori ont été payés pour les laisser passer, ce à quoi l'équipe de Tilée a opposé un fort démenti et rappelé aux nains qu'il manquait encore la moitié de la somme promise. Au prochain tour, les nains auront fort à faire avec un Bloodwork toujours très mobilisé au moment de jouer la coupe. Côte Dwarfabet : 55/45 en faveur des orcs.

Enfin, la Thunder Kaos Team a fait parler sa puissance pour écarter des Spirits of Death courageux. Les nains du chaos retrouveront les Quetza Rattlers qui ont remporté cette saison tous leurs matches de Youngblood ! Dwarfabet n'a su départager les 2 équipes et propose ici un 50/50 visant surtout à ne vexer personne.


Tournoi Best of the rest



L'opération "freinons durant les qualifications pour remporter un trophée" des FurFolais a connu un premier succès en quart de finale, les humains ayant disposé d'une équipe des Raiders "pas assez gourmande" selon les propos du vainqueur. L'équipe aux armes secrète a en tout cas donné rendez-vous la saison prochaine pour de nouvelles bombes et coups de tronçonneuse !

Ce seront les Toxic City Titans qui se dresseront sur la route des feux follets, après avoir battu les Roses Bleues de l'orbe à feu dans un match qui sent bon la MAGOUILLE tant les adorateurs de Tzeentch semblaient pouvoir mieux faire. Il s'agirait là d'une première car aucun cas de ce type n'avait jusqu'alors été relevé lorsque l'adversaire était un suiveur de Nurgle...

Tout à droite, les Armored Vermin Clan n'ont pas réussi à profiter de leur exceptionnel banc en cédant progressivement face aux Sphinx. Les rats figuraient pourtant (à tort apparemment) parmi les favoris de ce rassemblement, notamment en raison de l'absence des Grosse Motte Battlepigs, la fameuse équipe halfling ayant remporté 3 fois consécutivement le challenge des mangeurs de saucisse du Mootland.

Les Sphinx affronteront le vainqueur du match entre les Tenacious Teeth, autre favori de ce tableau, et les Arlequins d'Albion, toujours à la recherche d'un second souffle (mais s'ils peuvent trouver le premier ou le troisième, ils sont preneurs aussi, merci de les contacter si vous avez des pistes !).

Throne of Blood Season XXXII, final standings as of 2022-12-01 21:25
Realm Of Chaos
Season ran from 2022-11-01 00:00 until 2022-11-30 23:59

Near the end of season 32, the Gashers took down a lawnmower to cement a firm victory. Throne coaches everywhere salute you for the rare and wonderful thing that a foul killed deathroller represents.

The Himars gang in 4th place is also noteworthy, in that the season saw a new Throne record for the Soul Crusher award: no less than 7 opponents retired their teams immediately after playing them! Old record stood at 5 retired opponent teams in a season. Very well done!

As ever, registration is open to all stunty teams (including plenty of secret league teams that are obviously stunty, just ask if you are not sure), and scoring is retroactive from the first of the month. Competitive, League, Tournament: we welcome all!

Tomorrow morning, the site will be going down because of a power cut (maintenance work).

While the power cut is scheduled for between 08:00 and 11:00, I may not be at home when the power comes back (consequence of having a day job), the site may remain down until I get back home (around 18:00).

I apologize for the inconvenience that may be caused by this interruption.

The Blood Bowl November FAQ dropped,
You could google Warhammer community, blood bowl, downloads, FAQ. I mean, i couldn't stop you.

there are a few little bits but... PC's hot takes:
1: When throwing a team mate at people, knocking over opponents no longer ends your turn. knocking your own guys over still does.
2: Overdogging is OUT. underdog now gets difference+overdogs spend in inducements.
3: Underdogging was IN. Now out. Underdogs get the gap ONLY, cannot add cash.
4: Baleful Hex is as OP as we thought.
5: You argue, then bribe. As with children and partners.

All the league news fit to print and then some!

Compiled from across FUMBBL, this is all the league news that's come to my little furry ears. If you know more that is going on, please let razmus know so he can add it to the next edition, which should be mid-December.

Census information added under the league size indicator. The census says that there are 750 distinct coaches on FUMBBL who play in leagues. Two numbers are given which the range of the league size, because there isn't a single good indicator of the league size. When the numbers are very different - the league may be in flux, have some deadwood teams/coaches in their locker rooms, or at the start or end of a cycle. Numbers very close together should be pretty close to the actual census for the group.

The following leagues should have space/recruiting right now: Liga Snota w Worku (Poland), and “Spelledaren’s next big thing”(Global)

SynopsisFUMBBL's only officially supported metagroup. Build one or more squads of four teams, and amass points by winning and tying after randomly matching other teams.


SeasonNovember 1-30th, with a new season starting tomorrow December 1st.
EnvironmentAny/All
SynopsisStunty teams across the FUMBBL-verse attempting to beat, kill and maim everyone else... but mostly kill. Accumulate points for building up the biggest stack of corpses, with dwarves counting double. And of course, being stunties... the bodies accumulately from fouls certainly add to the official tally.

EnvironmentCompetitive, and League (BB2020 including SL2020 have been added to the current season. Blackbox only team awards to be added in January as well.)

Borg Invasion
SeasonPerpetual
EnvironmentAny/All
SynopsisChaos Renegades teams as Borg collective. Start vanilla and play against other teams... and as you kill your opponent's players, you add their unique biological signature to the Borg. It was challenging under the BB2016 rules, and I suspect it's even harder now.
