    I know I'm as hopeless for talking this up and then doing nothing as anybody else but we really need to make RPS FUMBBL a thing again. I only really keep my WIL chaos going for Obelix's sake and because otherwise I genuinely don't know when I'd next play Blood Bowl again.

    Speaking of Obelix, he got the benefit of my healing potion to return him to full strength and is just 4 SPP away from being my first ever fully-levelled player.

    Rise, thread, and do my bidding, whoop whoop!

    Is there anyone around that would be willing to introduce a FUMBBL noob* into the basics of the actual gaming client? I thought I'd rather ask here than elsewhere since I already know a lot of people. An introductory game would suffice, I just want to learn the basics of the client, would be up for more regular matches too though.


    *watched probably hundreds of games, have a couple of teams created, member of the 145 Club, also of the RPS group.

    Ohh, activity in this thread. I've been spectating some FUMBBL Cup matches recently, some high profile players (like Joemanji vs. Tarabaralla), also funky match-ups like a 3100TV Orc team facing a 2300TV Dork Elves. Sadly, many of the teams seem to be just insanely farmed killer mobs which makes for less exciting matches.

    I've played Tarabarella a couple of times, him or Azure are the toughest people to play against I've ever met.

    Uh yeah if you want some practice games it's probably best to bug me on Steam. Link in sig!

    I specced that game. Your comments on the proceedings were well received but, oh lordie, are some people smart-arses. Captain hindsight rules supreme...

    Hah, yeah I wasn't on best decision-making form, just tried to crank up the pressure using the crowd and I think it started to affect him, just not enough. I think it's universally acknowledged that as spec chat is the only place a coach can't read stuff about him, it's the shit-talking space :P

    Anything particularly egregious I should know? >_>

    You never did add me on steam!

    I know and I am sorry that I haven't got back to you about FUMBBL yet, I've been busy preparing some stupid PhD defense. Will correct that soonish. Nothing really bad has been said in spec chat. Jimmy Fantastic thought you were funny and some other dude criticized your RR habits, only to be shouted down from others (including JF). Mh... mostly quiet apart from something about leaving your MA8 guy open but covering your Kick lino instead. Didn't catch the play though.

    Reeeeasonably diverse, the prem this year had high, dark and wood elves, two rats, undead, necro, lizards, norse and chaos. They're all reasonably bashy versions of themselves in order to survive (except for the wood elves). They've split the races into three groups (roughly speaking, bash, dodge and mixed) and keep equal proportions of those within the league as a whole.

    The problem is they're a lot better than me. Last time I was in the prem all my good players died in the first match. Lost 450 skillpoints at once.

    I'm bringing a five strength ghoul to the table this time. God help him.

    I'll try to spectate a game or two for sure, thanks for sharing. If you need to let off some steam after some match frustrations, we could mayyybe try to get a quick game in between the holidays. I'll ping you on Steam.

    I've played a decent amount of League games with my friends, but never really strayed into Ranked because of how weird and gross the metagame there seems (not least the cherry picking of opponents). Is RPS Fumbbl still going on at all? Are there any other groups a semi-rookie coach would be a good fit for? Or should I suck it up and make a Blackbox team and just see what happens?

    Hey there! I think the group is not that active anymore here on the forums but might be that it's still alive on FUMBBL itself, if that makes sense. I'm still new to FUMBBL (and kinda not-too-very-much-professionally-good-experienced with BB in general) and would love to get the league going a bit again. Definitely up for a game. If you've got Steam, you can add me there, too!

    Well, I picked a team at random to apply to the group with. If anyone wants to add me on Steam, go for it.

    If you're new to fumbbl the best league you can join is the 145 club, I think. Nice environment focused on matching against other new coaches. Either that or when you're playing ranked, only send challenges to people at your level
