    Still in Division 2 so I don't need to apply anywhere. When I said I was glad not to get another promotion before I had some more skillups, I didn't expect you to stick Alistair Hutton's Altdorf Army in my division though.

    Jolima's vamps are massively scaring me.

    I am so looking forward to that match.

    Am I going mad or is Nullkigan in Div A and B at the same time?

    He can do that, Nullky Nullks has admin powers over reality itself.

    But in all seriousness, Groovy, there does appear to be a multi-Nulk boo boo afoot.

    I'm still interested!

    I swapped away from Zons - I'm not hugely committed, I just picked them cause they were relatively unused.

    However, my favorite frustration only has one team, so I'm going to have to go Skaven. And probably go 0-3, but someone's gotta bring the plague to the masses!

    I would like to give this a try. I haven't been playing for very long but I think a bowl between real people could be pretty fun. I am prepared to lose mightily!

    I glanced over the spreadsheet but I'm not entirely sure what to put on it at this point (I understand the form, just don't have the information to put in it yet); I'd like to play a Norse or Necromantic team. If you can assign me a nice, n00bly division, that'd be good. A friend of mine may or may not be posting interest here too, so if possible I'd like to get into the same division as him.

    My Steam name should be low_drums (as well as my BB online handle). What all I has need know?!

A second runner and the witch elfs are nice to have for the increased mobility, but AV7 makes them a liability when undeveloped and you're better off getting an apothecary and hopefully some SPP for the rest of the team first. Assassins are totally optional and not especially useful in my opinion, although it is perhaps biased by the way stab never, ever works for me. The threat of it scares people and they tend to remove them from the pitch quickly.

    Dump off is very useful however you play, either as added safety to get the ball clear if someone does break through to your runner, or as a riskier tactic to move the ball up quickly.
    I would mainly agree with this team selection priority, although I would still take 3TRRs. Unless you have a witch elf there at the start, a dark elf team will start out very lightly skilled even compared to other elf teams. No Dodge, no Pass. AG 4 can get you a long way but you will still want TRRs for the occasional 1.

    Normally I'd go 2-3 blitzers, 0-1 runner, 3 TRRs and then fill with linemen and FF. My current dark elf team is experimenting with 2 blitzers, 2 runners to start, for a change.

    Assassins are too specialised to be worth it. Stab is excellent against stunty teams and just below par on AG 7 teams (kind of useful for amazons, until you get Tackle), but the skill is not worth it against anyone else. I believe to get the most out of an assassin you have to de-specialise them, so they have something to offer against non-stabworthy opponents. But that's where their stats let them down. They need +1 Ma or +1 AV. As is they're too slow to be a catcher or blitzer, too lightly armoured to be a lineman. A dark elf blitzer with Shadowing will do a better job than an assassin. A witch elf too if she also has Block, Wrestle or Tackle.

    EDIT: Haha oh wow, my dark elf team is facing three teams I played last season (albeit two of them with my surprisingly lucky vamps)!

    Skaven vs Amazon, Skaven vs Chaos.

    I can't see how there's anything to worry about there!

    Aye, I couldn't find Combat at all last night for our game. :(

    PS: I'll understand if you say no, seeing as it would mean shifting half the divisions around.
    IMHO - the best solution here is if you can go on standby for filling in any "high div no shows/dropouts". Subject to approval from our Benevolent Dictator of course.

    Null should be only in B, I'll try and fix that later today. Snoozer seems to be invisible!

    You're currently in the queue as Sub number 1, based on past seasons there's usually a few dropouts and noshows so there's a good chance we'll squeeze you in this season. When you decide your race if you can pop it in Column C (bracketed to keep the race counts honest), not sure if we'll be able to get your buddy in at the same time as you, but if you both post nice requests we'll see what we can do :)

    /edit - apologies for the reply spam, it's too early for me to properly construct a coherent multiple point post :)

    /edit2 - historical results tab updated with Season 14, IIRC Jolima won due to beating Alethron when they played

    Applied for division 1. I also took a pass through the divisions and accepted any outstanding applications, but I didn't start the season for any divisions.

    hello admins, sorry if I am being a bit dense but I keep getting the following error message when attempting to apply for Division C - the action cannot be executed: applications are not accepted - thoughts?
