Blood Bowl: GWJ Slap & Tickle League

No it was my bad today Justin, let's get our match in tomorrow 6pm PST i've got a laptop at work that i can play on so we can get our match in right away.

Any word on the remaining games in league 2, day 2?

Word.

Have I mentioned that there are too many Blood Bowl threads?

Make a thread about it and we'll workshop it out.

I volunteer to chair workshop C.

Lets get those games in, people! There are still 3 left to play, as was so kindly pointed out by Grumpicus above. I will keep the 3rd post updated daily, if I can, so you can tell which coaches we are waiting on, and, with peer pressure applied liberally, get the games done.

Orcs are in another bloody game. Everyone in the injury bins.

2-0 in favor of the undead. Lots of bad injuries, bad decisions, and one screw up I'm still not entirely sure what happened. Lots of fun though.

Tickle league 1 has been advanced to day 3, schedule is listed here and.... well, you know the other place by now, I hope.

[size=24]Day 3[/size]
D'Kow War Rats vs Necrophobia
Kickbadguy vs Rascists, only lizards
The Hammer is my penes vs Pride of Odin
BYE WEEK Orc 'n' Pie Boar Boyz

thejustinbot, let me know when you want your bye week validated. Wasn't sure if you wanted to purchase/fire any players before I did that.

Knightsaber, what times would be good for you next week? I just started a new job today, and I know I'm working Friday night 7PM - 3AM EST, but I don't have the rest of my schedule for the weekend/next week yet.

Grumpicus Vs tboon has been played in Tickle League 2. I'm no good at write-ups but I would be remiss if I didn't mention this...

That's tboon's blitzer right after I boxed him in. On my next turn, that blitzer took 6 (six!) two-dice shots and did not go down. He then jumped out of the tackle box* and scored on his next turn (15).

Final score: Blodge FTW, 2; Roughing United, 1.

GG, tboon.

* It wasn't a perfect square after I bounced him around like a pinball so just a single dodge roll.

one wild let me know when you'd like to play. Weekends, Wednesday, and Friday's are the best bets for me.

Well considering that you are in LA and I'm in Engand, I'm thinking the weekend might be best, got a board gaming day tomorrow but even then with the time difference I should still be ok to play you. What is it? 10 hours I think isn't it?

Yeah that was crazy. Most of my lucky rolls for the game came in that sequence (except for the kick-off rolls ). But you played a great game. Sorry I couldn't stay up and get our other game in.

When you made that post it was 3:15AM for me. It is currently 10AM for me. So i think a late night Friday game, might be an early saturday morning game for you, which is fine by me, or we could push a day and go late night Saturday early Sunday for you.

Lars, how long until the cut off for Tickle League 2?

I should have known that since I have recenlty been traveling and ended up in San Fran, it is -8, early Sunday would most likely be best unless you really want to play me while I'm horribley hungover. In case anybody else needs to know about time zones there is this awesome website I will keep any eye out for you on Sunday morning.

Okay sounds good i'll be paintballing Saturday day once i get home and shower i'll pop online and check for ya!

Ok, I will try and be up early Sunday, just keep an eye out for me on Steam. Or I'm on on at any time you are, just throw me an invite. As I'm currently sort of unemployed so time zones don't really mean much to me so as I have always said in the Madden League, I'm more than happy to work around other people.

Chabuda and I got our game in. It was 2-0 with the lizards taking it.

Speaking of taking it, I lose a Saurus. The disconnect in game 1 and rolling a 1 for winnings in game 2 prevented me from having an apoth. /sigh

at least I killed 2 snotlings?

I wanna lose in the Tickle League 2. I'd be interested in fielding a team full of bozos.

As long as you don't mind coming in with some losses against your name Laarrs can always substitute your team for the bye team. (or a player that isn't playing, if that eventuates).

Thursday was the cutoff.
*Legion* and peedmyself: What's your guy's status on playing the game? Let me know ASAP, if I don't hear anything by early Monday morning, I'm going to have to advance the league and assign the game as a tie.

As much as I'd like to have BlackSheep involved, adding him into the league now wouldn't be fair for the other teams that had to play him the rest of the year, since 2 teams already would have 2 free wins courtesy of the "bye week team". (even though we all know everyone else would beat him) If this were a casual league, I would be fine with letting him in, but a playoff berth has the potential to get a team into next season's Slap league, which as we all know is going to be a very prestigious honor and such.

BlackSheep, we'll get you into the Tickle league starting in season 2, which should be starting up in a couple months. Train well, young padawan!

Geez that Laarrs guy is a hardass!

Blacksheep, chuck some teams into the Open and hit people up!

I'm not one of the teams that would benefit, but I would have much preferred a game to a bye, even if there are league/ranking implications. Maybe just make him in eligible for the upper league or the playoffs.

There's not much in the way of news, so you could probably advance the week.

FWIW, I would like to +1 this.

BlackSheep is welcome to my spot in Scrubs if he's looking for some league play.

In other news, the winnings bug reared its ugly head again.

Last night: You rolled a 5 and collect 70k. Reroll? Hell no, don't reroll.
Today: 30k in the coffers.

I seriously cannot catch a break. ugh.

Edit: Does the bug show up when you have a loner player? I had the option of buying a skink last night that I didn't take. I certainly don't have him now but I am short his cost.

I also had this happen to me, and I didn't have anything unusual going on with my setup. I didn't realize it was a bug--figured it was something I didn't know about. I think I went from 70k to 50k or something like that.

Blacksheep, if you're looking for a game outside of the league, get a team into the Open league and look me up!

Is Legion still active? Maybe someone should check in with him?
