After the end of the Great War, the Vaults opened and humans were again able to walk on the outside world. Unfortunately, the Wastelands was now flooded by several mutant races and the Vault inhabitants was afraid to leave the safety of their refuges. The Vault Tec staff had an idea: show to the Vault dwellers that mutants can be killed... on a Blood Bowl pitch!
After a few weeks, a new Vault was built: Vault BB.
The Vault Tec Squad was gathered, a Blood Bowl team competing in the Human League Premiership, a faction that reunite all the human teams fighting against the mutants in Blackbox.
The Vault Tec Squad is one of the oldest human teams in Blackbox, having played more than 800 games: the VTS is the second most played human team and in the overall top 10 of Box teams with most games.
The evil mutants setup a counter-attack in three stages
. Several boys die on the pitch and more of them are seriously injured; a few guys decide to come back to their families. The Squad is retired in the Vault for more practice, together with the scared dwellers.
After the rest, the Vault Tec Squad is ready to carry on again. 8 matches against the evil mutants that end with an impressive 6/2/0 record. The Vault dwellers are convinced that mutants can be beaten and finally leave the Vault in order to settle in the Wasteland.
The Vault Tec Squad plays its 100th match!
The search has been long, but the Vault Tec Squad finally faced the most (in)famous mutant army. The fight
ended up in a tie, but the soldiers were able to bash them hard. We can hear the mutants screaming in terror of our fierce boys!
A massive beating
from a mutant army is the climax of an impressive streak of bad encounters. It seems that the Vault Tec Squad has lost the ability to fight back the mutants, it's time to rebuild a new combat unit starting with a new set of recruit trained by a few veterans!
After its 101th match with the Squad, Bomber
is the first player to earn the Overseer status. He will still lead the new recruits until they are fully trained, and then he will retire to administrate the Vault.
After a lot of war, the Vault Tec Squad take part in a tournament
for a bit of relax. Some nice and friendly foes around and they get the win!
Some brutal chaos dwarfs destroy the Squad in a bloody match
that leave most of the Vault Boys dead on the pitch or seriously injured. The event will be remember as the end of the VT Squad as we know
. The team leader, Bomber
retires to take the Overseer role.
It took five completed Sprints, but finally the Vault Tec Squad get the title! Despite the brutal matches known as the end of the VT Squad as we know
, the Vault Boys are awarded
as the most proficient squad to fight the mutant hordes. The Overseer Bomber
is really proud of his fellow team-mates!
The Vault Tec Squad get to 200 games played, the 8th human team
to reach that milestone.
In a bloody match
against some evil mutants, Shooter
was fouled to death. The Overseer Bomber
commemorate its old comrade with a brief speech
, and its now engaged in a new recruitment campaign to bring the Vault Tec Squad back on the pitch.
The Squad is seriously struggling in the new campaign. The recruitment is going slow, due to several additional deaths on the pitch, and the faith in the ability of the Squad to defeat the mutants is fading out, after five consecutives losses.
After a long discussion between Overseer Bomber
and assistant coach Captain Warrior
, the Vault agree on a period of rest for the VTS, putting the war against mutants on hold, in a training camp for the upcoming major.
took an unexpected decision after a massive streak without wins against the enemies: almost half of the Squad was fired, and new recruits were hired trying to recover the lost determination with a more spread set of skilled elements. The new formation took the field for the first time in the 300th match
of the Vault Tec Squad!
It was a long time since the last encounter of the Vault Tec Squad with the evil mutants, and it was really bloody again. The Squad managed to leave the pitch with a draw
, but two dwellers died in the fight. One of them was Frontman
, a relentless fighter that was candidate to succeed to Overseer Bomber
in his role. The Squad will get its revenge...
The most successful season ever (both in the Premiership
and in the Conference
) of the Vault Tec Squad ends up in a loss against mutants
that relegate the team to second place in both competition. Moreover, for the first time in its history, the Squad is without a superstar blitzer and the captain honours go to thrower Collector
. It will be a long rebuild...
Another dweller surge to claim the Overseer title: unexpectedly, the fourth legend of the Vault Tec Squad is a thrower, "Horseman" Collector
. Overseer Bomber
is quite pleased, and hope to have him as an aid in Vault and team management when Collector
A loss against alien outlanders ends Vault Tec Squad longest undefeated streak up to date: 20 games with a 14/6/0 record.
Due to a serious injury that hamper his "Horseman" role, Collector
retires. He joins Overseer Bomber
to fulfill Vault BB management duties as assistant coach of the team.
The new Box is a true Wasteland and the VTS doesn't seem able to rebuild a decent squad at Premiership level. A bloody match
against evil mutants set them back in rookie mode, while team captain Reaper
dies after getting the Terminator award for killing the ClawPomber Harulak
Finally the VTS understood what's happenning. The radiations are at insane levels and the numbers of mutats are rising again at alarming rate. The Squad decided for a more careful training of the team at low level, winning the Conference title
again in the meanwhile.
The Vault Tec Squad played their 500th game
, the second human team to reach that milestone in the Box.
To get a bit of relax after the 500th game milestone, the Vault Tec Squad enter the Black Cup IV
. They fight their way up to the quarter-finals, the VTS best result so far in a Major.
Encouraged by last Major, the VTS go for FUMBBL Cup XII
with only a few preparation games. A bloody first turn with two promising dwellers dead put a huge set-back on the team, with an early fourth round exit.
After exactly two years, the Vault Boys are awarded
again as the most proficient squad to fight the mutant hordes, winning their second Premiership title.
Just a few days are passed from their prime, and the VTS are back rebuilding from scratch. Most of the core of the Squad is gone: two freak blitzers dead on the pitch in the CoS main draw
, soon joined by the third one
Another few days, the third stat freak
is forced into retirement and even wannabe Overseer Juggler
is killed by some "friendly" humans
will have an hard challenge trying to shape a bunch of rookies in a new winning team.
The greatest player ever to take the field for the Squad, Leader
, is killed on the pitch leaving a void that not even Overseer Bomber
can fill with his speech and tears
. An era that lasted almost an year finished, and the VTS will try to carry on until a new star will rise.
Not the start of a new era, yet, but the rebuild to former glory is sweeter: the VTS is HLC champion
for the third time!
Despite winning the fourth HLC title
, it's a bitter season for the VTS: they missed the HLP title and a deserved Double by just TV difference and the rebuild is a never ending task...
After throwing away Brawl CCIX final
, the Vault dwellers enter a state of depression and perform one of the worst streak in their history, with 8 losses in 12 matches. The Vault starts to question team management!
The rebuild to Premiership level is still a dream, but the VTS steal the third HLC title in a row
, fifth overall HLP first place. Maybe they belong there?
After a major power failure in Vault BB, the Vault dwellers are forced to get back to help to rebuild the settlement. It took more than one year to get the Vault fully functional again, but fearing another accident the team is no more allowed to travel too long.
The war against mutants is a distant memory, the VTS retire to occasional friendly play...
Despite playing more casual than ever, the VTS score the first Double
of its history, winning both the Human League Premiership and Conference in the same season! But nothing to get too proud about, it was just due to low competition.
Not only one, but the second Double in a row, while going for another rest period
To better accomplish their mission, the Vault Tec Squad joined the Human League Premiership, a faction that reunite all the human teams fighting against the mutants in Blackbox and account for all the matches played against the big armies (160+ TV). The Squad completed ten campaigns, winning the Premiership four times (S10, S22, S37 and S38) and collecting several top three placements (five second place and three third place, tying for first place three times).
The war against mutants is hard and our teams require several rests between campaigns. The Human League features even a Conference division, where new recruits are trained and veterans can take a safer rest (0-170 TV). You can meet the VTS often loitering there, and they won seven times, in Season 15, 18, 24, 25, 26, 37 and S38, too.
Last but not least, the Vault Tec Squad is one of the few teams to have completed a Double (winning both the Premiership and the Conference in the same seasons) and they did it twice in a row!

The Vault Tec Squad belong to the restricted group of human teams that played 300 or more games in the Box.
Actually, the VTS is on a quest for 1000 games
The Vault Tec Squad won several trophies and holds multiple records in the HLP, but one streak the Dwellers are more proud of: the VTS completed seven Sprints within one year and a half span all with a winning record!
The Vault Dwellers are a competitive team, both in the war against mutants and in official tournaments.
