    Slaanesh would probably suit when warhammer tries to break into the Japanese game industry.

    Pricing announced: http://forum.bloodbowl-game.com/view...&t=1410#p17667

    We are happy to inform that all owners of Blood Bowl will be able to purchase Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition for about €10,00! (exact price is still being debated, but this number is pretty accurate)

    This price is a special offer for all players who already have one of the previous editions of the game such as Blood Bowl, Legendary Edition or Dark Elves Edition.

    For those who don’t already have the game and want the full experience, Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition will be sold around €30. Pass the message along to your friends so they join the community in September 2012!
    At that price I'll be getting it, I think.

    Yeah, its no DLC price point, but its healthy. Now I just need to get another copy of Bloodbowl for next to nothing so I can get the upgrade twice.

    Here's a problem though, I'm completely unwilling to buy through the Cyanide stores without activation on Origin, Steam or Desura, I don't trust them to keep my downloads.

    Yeah, that's pretty reasonable; 10 Euromoney to keep the servers running another year or two is pretty reasonable, and if they're going to throw in another race I'll take it.

    I remain unconvinced by this unplaytested, potentially unbalanced new race, however, and I am strongly against letting people play it in RPS competitions until we know if it's balanced or not.

    Aye, not too bad on price but the last I heard galak and co still hadn't seen the new team.

    The entire idea of forcing a new team in seems bad to me anyways when there's so many missing features. Not that I've really played with RPS peeps anyways :]

    And then there is still the question if the CE is fully compatible with the LE.

    Judging by past performances I'd guess that it'll be a completely separate entity, so no compatibility.

    Yeah, I'll boycott any new races, ffs, they haven't even balanced lizards ^_^
    (6 St4 players with no neg traits?, mv8 stunties who are 1 AG boost from "2+"ING every dodge regardless of tacklezones and a big guy who has a marking skill, mv6, av9+thick skull and mighty blow.

    I'd be shocked if the new side was more OP.

    Yeah, I'd be in favour of banning Khorne at least for the first couple of seasons. If it's compatible with LE then I vote we let anyone who buys CE play the other new teams. If it's not then it gets more complicated; I don't know if a couple of new teams is worth splitting the divisions over.

    I'm pretty much against allowing it even after we find out how good or bad it is.

    Still for that price I will be happy for access to the Underworld and Chaos Dwarf teams (and Dribblesnot, muahahaha).


    EDIT:

    Haha yeah, lizards are OP. Actually they are one of the very few teams whose players don't fit the pricing formula (the saurus and krox are all 10k cheaper than their stats/skills say they should be), plus having 6 ST4 blockers on a side is unprecedented.... *ahem*

    You know who else is OP? The undead. 40k linemen that aren't stunties and have General skill access, and Regen?? What hax. :P

    You can't simply identify one component of a team and call the team overpowered.

    Zombies are great and I'd happily take half a dozen of them on any team. But they are not the complete picture. Is a ghoul as good as a high elf lineman? Add to that the lack of apothecary access and these key players establish there place in the bigger picture.

    Super mortal SPP hogs and relentless but incapable linemen.

    In other news, straw man is flammable.

    I'd call MV3 a negative.

    I'm not saying Undead are shit btw, but the I wonder if the "Bloodbowl isn't meant to be balanced" crowd will still complain about the balance of the new side, even if they are less OP then for example Lizards.

    To be fair, isn't that all it ever was? The Games Workshop games I truly loved didn't sell enough little men though, BB, Necromunda, GorkaMorka, Inquisitor.

    Undead are one of the weird middle ground teams really. Humans are the middle of the middle, then Necro, then Undead as bashy middle, Lizardmen as xtreme middle middle and skaven as runny middle. Makes it difficult to compare them to proper bash/agility teams. My concern with the new Khorne team is that it'll just be another pure bash side, which the game doesn't really need (if anything another hybrid or agility side would even things out a bit more). 10 euro's is a good price though, provided it's compatible with LE I'll happily pick it up at that price.

    My wife got me a subscription to White Dwarf as a Christmas present, to be fair even though it's quite adverty I still find it a nice read of a lazy evening.

    I would love an online Necromunda, can't believe it hasn't happened yet. All the team building and tactics of BB played out in three dimensions, with none of the stupid ball getting in the way.

    It was a general rpg magazine until mid/late 80's and did some pretty good stuff.
