Well I reckon I'll pick it up straight away, whether or not the league switches over to it. Then I'll see soon enough what all the fuss is about. As for the league, maybe wait until the first major sale of the game to bother, assuming it's worth doing at all. Even if the daemon team is a pile of arse, the other two teams are tried and tested oldies at least.
Hopefully the two versions will simply be compatible (unlikely, because Cyanide), then the whole issue will be moot.
A smidge more info on the source of that Khorne team, it was published in the first edition of the official Blood Bowl magazine, so it was from an official GW (or at least GW-approved) source. But that was in tandem with the release of the 4th edition rules, which were so hated they were subsequently redacted. So that team roster is one for a rule version that doesn't exist anymore.
I'll probably get it as soon as I can, depending on price of course, but I can't see it being too expensive.
I'll buy it pretty much straight away. I mean, unless it's £30 or something ridiculous.
Just to confirm, Cyanide have said that yes CE is compatible with LE, infact LE players will be patched so that while they cannot access the new teams, they'll be able to play against them.
News on the Khorne Daemon team is that it has Bloodletter Heralds and a Juggernaught as the big guy. The rest of the lineup is still in the air.
Yeah this best not be a full £30 price tag, I'd expect £10 at most since it's barely one third of the stuff that was added with Legendary edition, a lot of the Star Players are still missing, there's still 2 teams missing, Chaos Pact and Slann. Personally I'm really not sure about the Daemon team, I mean sure if they went with a Daemon mixed team it would be kind of fun.
It seems like the only game to even make reference to the fact that they're are other Daemons than Khorne and Nurgle was Warhammer online, guess Slaanesh just isn't kid friendly enough for them to use.
Unfortunately GW have said that because Slann nolonger fit in with their idea of the race (the big slow fat frogs) that Slann will never make it to the PC Cyanide version of the game.
Big sigh of relief that it will be compatible with LE, at least.
The one crumb to cling onto is the recent revelation that they are adopting DLC for the extra colleges in DB so maybe they are looking at that option for the CE content.

Yeah since they're a French company pretty much 75% of the stuff is things being pulled from the French section of the official forums where they seem to be doing their communicating.
It was posted somewhere in the bigass Chaos Edition thread on the official forums.
Yea they just ignored them. Slaan are still in Warhammer, they lead the Lizardmen but they are just really fat magical frogs.
After all, the Normal Edition of Bloodbowl is also "compatible" with the LE - both version share the same chatroom, they just can't play with each other.
I remain cautious about it. Love the game, but Cyanide's lifetime track-record is not filling me with confidence.
