I'm very sorry but I'm going to have to default my last game in div 7. I couldn't get my match in with Prester John earlier due a later return from a work trip and a dodgy stomach from said trip. I now can't even make this evening -so that really is it for me this season!
..and I think for the divisions for the moment. I'm afraid I haven't really had the time to consecrate to BB and there are so many distractions. I hope to return at some point, revitalised and rejuvenated (probably having feasted on a thrall's corpse).
Anyhoo, so long and thanks for all the fish, FUN! (dwarf fortress style) and to Groovy for his tireless managment of the sprawling divisions (with the help of his familiars/fellow admins).

I'm going to be withdrawing from the league. Work changes are forcing me to possibly relocate and I just have a lot going on right now. Thanks for the matches everyone it was fun for the two seasons I played. If things get calmed down for me again I'll definitely rejoin.

Hallo! Me and my stupid ogres are looking to join in. I'm being talked through the signup process by Dog Pants, and I've filled in the Season Info googledocs whatsit, but he has gone for his tea now so I'll finish up later tonight. Feel free to shout at me if I'm doing it wrong.

Pulling my hat from the ring for next season. Hope to join someday, but my schedule for the immediate future is about to become unreliable. Deleted my stuff from the sheet, hope that is the correct protocol.

While the conversation is on all this depressing stuff about withdrawals, my guesstimate for finishing slaving away on uni work was a bit optimistic, so it looks like I'll be out for a second season. Bugger.

So all outstanding games are settled then, correct? Championship & Div A agreed to draw, what about Div C?

The official blurb (emphases mine):
We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Dungeonbowl. This online only game is played with characters from Games Workshop's renowned Blood Bowl world.
Dungeonbowl is the next exciting Blood Bowl experience, set in the fantasy American Football inspired game world already adapted as a video game by Cyanide. The key difference between Dungeonbowl and Blood Bowl as is rather obvious from the name, is that Dungeonbowl is played in a dangerous dungeon!
The wizards created the Dungeonbowl as they wanted to know which Magic College was the most powerful. The game introduces some subtle modifications to the standard Blood Bowl rules. A match is still played between two teams, but each side is composed of three races. For example, the roster of a Rainbow Wizards team contains Wood Elves, Halflings and Humans. The second difference is that the first team to score a touchdown wins the match. This task is made significantly more difficult by the fact that the ball is hidden in one of six treasure chests, five of which are booby-trapped with an explosive spell. Last, but by no means least, movement within the dungeon is both facilitated and complicated by teleporter pads. These allow players to magically zap from one position to another; a mishap, however, can lead to a player being zapped out of the match. As with Blood Bowl, the game is driven by dice and each player plays in turn.
Dungeonbowl continues Cyanide's successful collaboration with Games Workshop and their rich and varied Blood Bowl world. The gameplay should therefore delight existing Blood Bowl fans as well as offer a gateway to this zany parody of Warhammer®and American Football for fans of tactical sports gaming.
Dungeonbowl is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2012 and will be available on the Windows PC.
I might well buy this! I'm more excited for it than Chaos Edition anyway. Even if (as it appears) there's no crossover between this and the standard Blood Bowl game, it could be a worthwhile distraction - and another source of funding for further BB development.

Ok, it's ON! Season 18 is starting RIGHT NOW!.
We need your applications in in-game for the correct division as marked in the sheet. You may need to take your team out of your old division to apply for the new one. Any problems, ask in here so we can help out.
All promotions/demotions have been sorted out now and your positions have been assigned accordingly. I've marked people as 'Z' where they wanted to drop out and, as usual, it means some people will be a touch higher in the divisions, with the bottom divisions being dragged up near-wholesale (I've mixed you up so you should be playing some different teams this time around). Currently we have a slot for everyone, apart from MrJoose - either we'll need a couple more players, or you'll be first in line should someone else not turn up MrJoose, hopefully we can squeeze you in this season, I always like to see ogre teams in there ;-).
As usual, if you spot any glaring errors or anything I may have missed, let me know ASAP. I'm away until saturday, but I'm hoping we can get everyone applied by the sunday night, if thats doable, so the first 'week' can commence on the monday. We shall see :-).
Now I've just got to go away and practice my elf-defence - 2 Dark elf teams and a pro elf team for me this season. Hope my humans put their spiky gloves back on ...
Jaytee, you said you might be able to play if we get started early? I've assumed we're already late here, so marked you as Z, let me know sharpish if this is not the case so I can put you back in?

Yep, I just saw this meself... very, very interested, much more than in any chaos dwarves.
Cross-over would be lovely.
Can't wait for the Dungeonbowl Tournaments and Leagues!
YAY. A life-long dream has come true - I get to play versus JIIIIIM! It's a shame he doesn't sing about the Divisions, but I am excruciatingly looking forward to be the subject of his match reports.

Applied, Division 7 it is!
Edit: Just had a look at teams I'll be facing (WElf, DElfs, Gobbos) and have to say: Nullkigan, your DElfs scare the Bajesus out of me.

Good old familiar Division 2, my home for several seasons now.
And good old familiar Jarvis, and good old familiar Grinn, and good old familiar NieA7. I'm sure I've played all of you in Division 2 before - this is like deja vu all over again.

In all the excitement, I forgot to mention:
Congrats Jiiiim for another storming victory in the championship division, excellent lizarding, you cold-blooded coach, you.

Best at Blood Bowl, best at match reports. Where can you go from here?
