Blood Bowl 2
« on: October 06, 2015, 11:05:43 AM »
I see a few of y'all playing. Whose up for a round robin season and some weekend knockout tournaments?

Match scheduling will happen in this thread or via Steam. We have 3 coaches right now but need a minimum 6 to start.

I'd like to run two rounds/games per week with deadlines on Wednesday and Sunday. If too many are missing matches we'll slide to once a week. (A game can easily take 2 hours so the commitment is significant)

Match scheduling conflict resolution would be:
If both coaches make a visible attempt in thread to schedule their match but fail to play = draw.

If both coaches fail to make a visible attempt in thread and fail to play = draw.

If one coach makes a visible attempt in thread to schedule and their opponent fails to respond : the coach who attempted scheduling gets a Win and the other a Loss.

(Players in these formats usually begin scheduling matches a day or so before a round starts)

This is how we did stuff in BB1 - There may be some unforeseen difficulties in BB2.

I shall make a team called the Kazad Kor NotCheaters, who never smuggle war machines onto the pitch.

Should have the game on friday, if there's an opening. Count me in.
A staff member sends you:
"Normally we don't see a <redacted> walk into a room full of <redacted> and start indiscriminately killing."

You send to staff:
"Welcome to Armageddon."

When all the DLC comes out and all the teams are available, maybe. But not likely in the near future.

Should be enough people to give it a go. I'll start setting up. My Steam handle is Sahoj.

League name ideas?

The League name is:
The Sorcerer King's Cup

I went ahead and opened up a 6-team round robin and an 8-team knockout tourney for starters.

Oh uh, PC master race? I don't know that it allows cross-platform play.

The interface to join the league is superbly clunky.

You'll search out "The Sorcerer's Cup" then 'Register' to join a competition in the league (Northroad Tour).

I'm not notified of any register requests - so I'll check a few times daily. After I see a request, I send out a ticket/invite, which you'll find if you go to:
 Play in a League and cycle to the requested team: An option to join can show.

Or: You can post the team name you want to join with here and I'll send you the ticket/invite, that you'll find next time you select that team for play.

New teams only.

It's second only to Eve in playtime for me, and I'm currently working my way up the Orca Cola League.

I'm absolutely 100% up for an Arm league too, and with Legendary Edition (including all teams) due on the 5th of September, now is a great time for newcomers to check the game out.
