Underworld Team roster has been presented.
It's just as it appears in the tabletop rules, meaning (with Dribblesnot being added to the game) the team only has two star players to choose from, one Secret Weapon and one Morg! I didn't realise that before, I thought Scrappa or Ripper were available too but apparently not.
The team still looks fun to play regardless.
The release date is supposed to be 11th October http://forum.bloodbowl-game.com/view...p=21260#p21258
Is the decision for the Khorne roster that we wait and see how it goes for balance in other leagues? I am probably going to play Khorne in a private league starting at the beginning of November so might be able to give you an opinion. Can a few of us try them out in MM too?
Are we otherwise going to allow Chaos Dwarves and Underworld into the next season of the Divisions?
I've no problem with Chaos Dwarfs or Underworld, not only have those teams been around a long while they are unique and interesting to play and play against.
The Khorne team looks very problematic to me, mostly the Pit Fighter and Bloodletter skill access (especially for their price). Also Khorne is boring and sucks. I may not be the most impartial judge here.
The final decision rests with the league owners and I will tolerate whatever decision they make. I can however categorically say the Khorne team will never make an appearance in the Gauntlin Goblet league. Not on my watch! :P
Yeah, the two real teams I'm fine with, Khorne I don't think we should allow (unless after extensive playtesting they turn out to be fine, I suppose).
Definitely let Chaos Dwarf and Underworld in, assuming there's full cross compatibility with Legendary Edition. Honestly I wouldn't have too many problems with the Khorne team, they look quite underpowered to me. Not especially interested in playing them, but what would Official RPS Playtesting For Admission To Leagues® look like?
I thought Zoraster's concerns were at high TV, so even if we did let them into the leagues there'd be an issue for a while.
I've missed quite a large chunk of this discussion - but are people without Chaos Ed. still going to be able to play teams that are in Chaos Ed. without having to buy it?
That's what Cyanide have said, but nobody quite believes them without seeing it for themselves. Everblue dug out a quote earlier on:
"Legendary and Chaos will be compatible. It means that a Legendary player will be able to play with a Chaos player but only with a Legendary team. He will see the new races but won't be able to choose a Chaos Dwarfs team.
Concerning your team, you should be able play with your team on Chaos edition, so you won't have to restart a new team if you don't want."
The sudden request for testers for this weekend to see if compatibility actually works isn't exactly comforting either.
I genuinely think Khorne will be fine. Yes, 7 players have immediate strength access but only one of them is above ST 3 and 4 of them are AV 7 so you wouldnt want them in the middle of a scrap anyway. They're not fast enough to keep up with elves and not strong enough to go toe to toe with bash putting them nicely in the middle. Positioning will be tricky due to all the frenzy and with only 4 players have easy agility access repositioning won't be easy.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
I actually rather like it, although the bloodthirster looks very sad, ill pick it up i think for that price i think
