Blood Bowl: GWJ Slap & Tickle League

Who runs the Kickbadguy team? and when do you want to play? I've got time today 6pm PST to play, or sometime over the weekend.

When do you want to play Lars? I'm back at work now so late night Saturdays are out. But other than that I should be able to work something out.

I kickbadguys all the time...but I should be able to make it...Hox on steam.

Aright then Chabuda I challenge you in 3 hours!

As of right now, I work Friday night and Saturday night, so Saturday would be out for me anyways. I'm available anytime Sunday after say 6 PM and any time Monday.

Monday it is then, will add you on Steam and then just hit me up when you see me.

Legion, It's my weekend now so I'll be available from 5 am Saturday; 2pm EST Friday to 2am EST Saturday, then 2pm EST Saturday to 2am EST Sunday unless my wife pops.

I'm free Thursday and Friday night anytime from 8-11PM EST start time to get the game in. If neither of those work for you, I need to look and see what my schedule will be like next week.

I need to help a friend put together a computer tonight. I'll shoot you a steam message when I get home.

So Chabuda and I got our S&T match in last night and as is the theme for the season it was a brutal but low scoring match. Ogres and mummies clashed at the midfield and surprisingly 2 Ogres went down with injuries. However not before both of my wights were taken out, one from a head smash and the other by tripping over a snotling and cracking his skull open on an errant rock. We ended up going into the half scoreless with multiple KO's and injuries on both sides of the field.

2nd Half saw Chabuda with a weakened front line, and me with a weak wing, attempting to pin down the very mobile snotlings my ghouls went in for the kills wherever they could but just couldn't seem to land a solid hit (I've never seen more push/defender stumble dice in my life) With a slight miscalculation from the snotlings they left a ghoul unmarked and access to the ball carrier at the start of the half sending the ball flying into the middle of the scrum where it bounced from player to player till a very surprised Ogre managed to get his hands on it but didn't keep it for very long as a mummy quickly smacked him down and a ghoul dashed in and stole the ball. Some impressive defensive work from the snotlings kept the ghoul from dashing the ball in and he was forced to dodge away and hand the ball off to get it away but that ghoul was also swarmed but thankfully a dodge roll and a sprint to the end zone put Necrophobia on the board 1-0. Turn 13

Rest of the match was pretty uneventful the Ogres still tied up with the mummies were having fun shoving and getting shoved, but that left the snotlings at the mercy of the stronger ghouls, there was a brief attempt by an enterprising snotling when he got an ogres attention and requested to be thrown with the ball down the pitch but the ogre misunderstood and threw him toward the sidelines where he face planted so hard he dropped the ball and couldn't get up for a while. A ghoul recovered the ball and sat on it to prevent anymore shenanigans and the match ended 1-0.

Sounds good. I should be around for another hour or two ready to play.

I'll be getting back into town probably around 10:00pm or 11:00pm EST Saturday, so I could definitely play between then and 2:00 am.

I'm good on and off today, then most nights after around 8 PST so we should be able to get something in pretty easily.

Thank you, Prozac, for advancing the league for me. I knew there must have been a reason I gave you admin powers (other then the hard meth I usually take on the weekends)

I already know that he's jealous of my awesome personality and stunning good looks, there is no secret there.

Validate away.

Sounds good. I work Friday night, so I'll look for you on Thursday.

Wish it had been off.

Orcs take it 1-0. A quick write-up to entertain Cayne.

Ok, so... you know those games where nothing goes right for you and your opponent is pulling off extreme cases of amazingness but somehow the game stays close to end extra heartbreakingly? Yeah.

The game starts with my racists losing the coin flip (we always choose tails) and getting to receive. Skink grabs it, we cage up a bit and get a good lane opened up, he's a turn away from scoring. The only thing that can prevent that now is a defender down on a 1 die blitz. And even then, a quick dodge and a hand-off on my next turn should get that ball right back and score a quick point. I got this.

So after Justin rolls a defender down on his 1 die blitz, I botch my handoff. The only thing that prevents Justin from scoring on turn 8 is failing the first of 2 going for its into the end zone. I'm sure that poor lineman was crushed.

But he failed finally, right? Things are finally looking up for me, right? No more successful 1 die blocks! No more successful defender chooses blocks! Yeah, I'm finally turning it around! It's still 0-0, I got this thing!

...

No. No, I didn't.

Justin's luck was slightly worse in the second half but so was mine. Instead of describing it (because it was really slow paced), I'll just break it down for you:

My bad luck:
8 double skull rolls. This happens but no one has block and my lizards only have 2 rerolls. This includes the first move of each of my last 2 turns.
3 Really Stupids on my Krox. These were all 1s since I had someone next to him for every move. 2 of these killed blitzes. I think I got to use him maybe 4 times? But most of those were....
Pushes! Just about all pushes. I had maybe, MAYBE a dozen defender downs. These were all 2 die blocks, I threw no 1 die blocks, I didn't NEED to, I had math on my side.
I inflicted 0 injuries and scored no touchdowns or passes. 0 SPP.
My MVP went to the 1 skink I had that has an armor of 6. THANKS FOR THOSE SPP, I'm sure he'll live a long and happy life.

Justin's AMAZING luck:
8 or 9 1 die blocks. 1 of these was a skull, 1 was a push. Everything else was a defender down.
5 successful defender chooses blocks. This finally started catching up to him around turn 13 or so but to start the game, he had like 4 of these that were double defender downs. It was completely bananas.
Of the many times he knocked down a Saurus or Krox, I think there were more Stuns than a simple knock down. That hurt a lot. Every time a lizard went down it was for 2 turns.
The second half started with the "everyone throws rocks at a team" thing. It only hit 1 guy! 1! I've only ever seen half a team get taken out! Granted, it was his thrower but his blitzer scooped the ball up no problem, so no harm done =)
His winning score on turn 16 followed a botched throw attempt on turn 15. He scooped it up and tossed it to a lineman in the end zone on the same turn without rerolls. He made that throw attempt on turn 15 in lieu of just running it in. The emotional rollercoaster of me almost getting an inexplicable tie was awful.

Please don't misunderstand, Justin played very very well and deserved the win. I'm only doing this write-up because it was so tragic it was funny. This was the kind of game that I warned tboon in the other thread about. The kind that makes you want to stop playing because lady luck is bending you over something and taking you against your will.

Thankfully, my luck was so bad I was finding it funny by the end but that last TD throw was heartbreaking =)

Thanks for the write-up, oilypenguin. At least it lets the rest of us know we're not alone.

heh.

There should be a support group.

There is, it's called getting back on the horse that kicked you off, go play some more matches and laugh as your enemies fall before you and you hear the lamentations of their women.
