    FHC Blood Bowl 2 League

    It's that time people. Lets come together to praise nuffle and engage in the sort of masochistic self loathing that only Warhammer dice games can deliver!

    Its on sale currently on steam and probably elsewhere so if youre not sure, buy it anyway and give it a bash. Im newbie myself but having a blast/unsure how deep to cut my wrists.

    Gonna have a 1000 points league with the boys, will post a sign up link soon.


    Get on it

    Failheap Challenge League has been set up. Im holding off season one settings to see how many we get signing up. Options are 6, 8 or 10 dudes iirc. Post in here and over the next few days/week lets see who bites.

    Will be a round robin where everyone plays each other once, all newbie 1000 points teams. Should be fun.

    I would be in, but timezone of participants should be kind of coordinated or setting up the games will be a challenge.

    Does this require any former knowledge, planning or preparation?

    Nah not really. Easy to pick up hard to master, with the double skulls dice dickery thrown in to ruin your planning no matter how good. Probably worth checking out the new roster builds from this website, and mebbie giving the campaign a go for a bit as it introduces the concepts of the game slowly per match. https://bbtactics.com/

    There is some decent youtube videos also which help get you up to speed.

    Ive played 7 games in total so far and feel reasonably competent without being good or advanced at anything. The team members start out basic and can upgrade with success each game so it eases you in to the complexity.

    You can strategery to give yourself a better chance. The dice are literally designed and balanced to fuck you (everybody) though.

    Simple tips that will prevent the worst dice shafting (that no one listens to).
    1. Move all players that are not going to roll dice, before moving anyone that are going to roll dice. Ex: move players to cover ball before attempting to pick it up, move ball carrier before starting to block.
    2. Dont GFI (Especially not without re-rolls).
    3. Dont one die block if you dont have block/wrestle skill (like ever).
    4. Dont block against 2 red die (opponent picks result).
    5. Dont use appo unless its for a critical player (monster, skilled player).

    The "manbowl" steam group still exists and I just saw I still had one team with one game in the Failheap League from last time.

    Also, for clarification on rules:

    mixed or normal team? Personally I prefer normal, mixed are all kinds of fucked at times.
    obviously new teams? I hope.
    Do we have a few new players? Because if so I will just play orcs or something simple instead of going elfbowl or some cheesy bullshitery. I do love my some Necromantic tho just for flair and awesome wolves.

    Guess i would constitute a "seasoned" player, but im thinking ill go flings if its allowed to start with a 900tw team, otherwise i guess skaven, necro, kislev is always fun.
