Blood Bowl 2 asks for a do-over


#182

Welcome!

I am legowarrior on the BB league discord and the have the Tauri team.


#183

Thanks, legowarrior!


#184

Well, I have had better games. I can’t believe I misclicked from the beginning.


#185

That was too close. And again, I misclicked. That Saurus should not have dodged!


#187

Despite my computer internet crapping out, I was able to pull off a tie against Dark Elves. It was a never going to be win for me, the defense was just too good, but I lost time that would be made a tie much more likely. Luck was on my side the final turn, and I was able to tie it up the last turn.


#188

Congrats! Dark elves are my nemeses.


#189

It was a good game with last minute touch downs for both of us. I was just annoyed at how easy it was for them to dodge out of tackle zones. Every single time.


#190

Heh - that’s Elves for you. It’s always tough to stop Elves from scoring (the Dwarves last match was the first time that happened for me, and I felt hard done by luck in that game), though you made it extremely hard for me too. So kudos right back at you for defensive play.

And yeah - the internet thing was really annoying and I’m honestly glad it didn’t cost you the game.


#191

It was super close. There was little chance of me winning, but man, because of the internet, I lost the ability to move my skink with the ball the second the last turn. That final turn, I had a skink complete 1 dodge, pick up for 37%, than dodge out again, than pass the ball to a second skink to score. And 0 Rerolls.

Man, that was pure luck. If you had won, that would have sucked, but I could not get around your defense and it would have been fair. But I think the tie was legit, even if I got lucky to get it.

And that score of yours. I really thought I had you stopped in your tracks.


#192

Damnit, my Saurus rolled an 11. I had a Skink and a Saurus level up after the game, but my Saurus rolled the 11. I guess I’ll give him block, unless anyone can think of a good reason to give my Saurus 2 Agility.

By the way, I think I have solved my internet issue going forward. Previously, I had internet going through the power lines (old computer doesn’t have wifi), but a couple of months back I got a wifi booster that allows for a cable going out. I replaced my powerline internet connection with the booster. Hopefully it will have fewer dropped packages.


#193

Yeah - +AG on a Saurus really isn’t worth it, ever. “Me Saurus. Me Hit!” as the commentary goes.

I think you would have gotten around me in time for a touchdown if the internet slowdown had not opened up that opportunity for me to jump your ball carrier with a blitz, so I agree the bit of luck required there at the end was deserved. It was a good/fun game.


#194

Finally grabbed this. I guess the legendary edition doesn’t include all the teams, so I’ll have to grab the team bundle next steam sale. Do they plan to add all the CRP teams to the game?


#195

are the production values any better this time around? i bought the first one way back on stardock’s impulse platform and it felt like it used Visual Basic UI controls and Windows system fonts.


#196

They are already in!


#197

I know this was a design decision, but it’s one I hate. Tiered teams. It’s okay in table top, where you play against people of different levels of skill, but it sucks in an online setting. It just takes teams off the field.

I just finished a game against Goblins, were the opposing player conceded in the first half. Did not see a way to win. And there wasn’t that much, against a partial developed team of Lizardmen.


#198

I was the goblin!

It wasn’t a rage quit as there was just no way that was even going to become a tie. One of your skinks would have picked up the ball and scored the next turn for 2-0 by turn 6, with the goblins getting no more secret weapons at that point. Sticking around for the 40k winnings wasn’t worth the injuries I’d be wracking up, and SPP are mostly a detriment to goblins.

But I would like to gripe at the altar of Nuffle:

  • Secret weapon teams are at a big disadvantage if they don’t get to start on offense. I don’t think I’ve won a single coin toss all season.

  • I was weighing using my 360k inducements on either a chef and a foul or Ripper star player and 2 fouls. I opted for the chef, and promptly rolled 1 reroll for him :. (I’m thinking a decent balance change would be to just have chefs provide +2/-2 rerolls rather than rolling. They’re GG in either direction if you roll a ‘1’ or a ‘3’)

  • I failed 5 out of 8 of my 2+ rolls in the first couple of turns. This in a season where centaurs make virtually every agility roll >_O

  • Every…single…movement my fanatic made was in exactly the one space I didn’t want him to go.


#199

Last game. It was pretty good, but I lost. Oh well.

Not bad for my first tournament in the game. I think I’m 7th or 8th place.


#200

There’s always (maybe? seemed like attrition was bad this time) next season!


#201

I’ll think about it.

Between BB and Dominions 5, it’s hard to decide what to obsess over.


#202

I highly recommend checking out the Yo Gobba Gobba vs Marvelous Midgets replay. Surprisingly came down to the wire for the 1st place and dead last team showdown.

Secret weapons!

Both sides suffering around 4 disastrous rolls and key moments!

Death!

700k+ inducements! Wizards! Fouls! Morg n’ Thorg!!!
