My skill-less lizards handled the ball like seasoned elves, my skinks' armour was unpenetrable (well, until turn 15 anyway), the Orcs could only roll pushes when it mattered and my Krox passed every bone-head roll. On the other hand though, it took me until turn 15 fifteen to break any of the Orc's armour, the sweltering heat hit me harder - having 8 v 11 players for the entire second half, the damn guard black orcs more than cancelled out my strength advantage and after the out of bounds first kick-off the game decided to give the ball to my marked Krox on the line of scrimmage.

    The actual game finished 1-0 to me, the goal a standard skink run-in in turn 3. For novelty factor (and thanks to the apoc) none of my players actually died, although I do now have an ag0 saurus. The MVP also went to a bloody skink again.

    Thanks for the game Desvergh, it must have been highly frustrating for you to see my lizards pick up the ball in multiple tackle zones multiple times though.
    Thanks for the game Boots.

    Was a bit frustrating. I got good rolls on the blocks, just never against the right target - stumbles against skinks when not using my tacklers, pushes against skinks when using my tacklers, both down against block sauri, etc, etc.

    You had your share of bad luck too, what with being 8 players to 11 for half the game. Yet I still could not open any gaps in your defence.

    Well played, you very nicely manouvered your skinks to give you the support where you needed it. You certainly know how to play the lizards.

    Until next time we meet.

    Confirming I have an excellent track record of signing up teams to the correct divisions while simultaneously not firing their minotaurs. I'm happy to do this for you, just pm me your username and password (you can always change it when you get back)

    I think I'll also need to do this for MadDave; he's away from Saturday for two weeks, which *should* let him miss the first match but squeeze in the second one.

    I can confirm the above. Mr President is also always very gentle.

    Me and Tom O'Bedlam (Div4) have been royally Cyanide'd; couldn't connect no matter what we did to the ports (we both reset our routers at least once) so we're satisfied with a draw; permission to put that on the spreadsheet?

    Hi all. I now own legendary so would like to join the league if possible :D I've filled out the spreadsheet with id's and left race blank.

    Dwarves would be nice to play (and hence the team name), if they are available.

    Just a quick FYI, I shall be out of town from the 3rd through the 7th. The posts of others have reminded me that that may make signing up for the next season awkward. I'd love some admin input on whether signing up the evening of the 7th would be an acceptable delay or if I should seek weasely aid in getting things set up properly. I'm happy to do whatever is needful, I don't want to sit next season out if I can avoid it!

    You can see the current distribution of races on the 'Race Balance' sheet on the spreadsheet. There are only 2 dwarf teams in the DoD currently, and there's a maximum of 5 allowed so there's plenty of room.

    The only thing that would prevent you from playing dwarves is if there was a sudden flurry of 3 current players all wanting to drop their current team and take dwarves. Even then, although the letter of the rules is written like this, I get the impression that everyone here is super friendly and reasonable and unlikely to rip the final slot out of your hands if that's what you want to play. :)

    In short, welcome, jot dwarves down, and get ready to start breaking some kneecaps.

    I am seriously looking forward to the next Division A - a rematch against laneford's Nurglings, some Dark Elf Babes of either Duffin- or Kelron-variety and finally some skinks! I built one of my blitzers especially to hunt down skinks, which is her only purpose and the one thing she never got to do so far. She'll probably die before the match.

    It's all absent Daave's fault. :(

    /Addendum: Is it bad to admit that the seasons are kind of my gaming highlight each month? Thanks guys, it's an excellent group of skilled and fun players, and I dearly love the league-system.

    I'm actually looking forward to restarting and building up a new team! (In two or three seasons, after my team gets inevitably destroyed as smaug's did...)

    Could a kind admin roll forward div. 3? To my knowledge Fenix is still absent so their match should default.

    I was just waiting to see if DF wanted his last game or not, I don't usually end the season until we're ready to go with the next one anyways.

    Final day is today, with 4 games outstanding. I know duffin and alethron are planning to play tomorrow, so I'm willing to grant everyone else an extension until tomorrow evening at least, then I'm going to default the games and sort out promotions etc. Hopefully by sunday morning we should have the divisions organised so people can begin applying then.

    Nuffle hates dwarfs. Fact.

    Don't worry, VV, one of the things I have learned in my time coaching Orcs (quite badly) in the Open is that blitzers you have made specifically to kill one type of player (Amazons) turn out to be equally good at hunting down and murdering a fun and interesting variety of other players (gutter runners, skinks, human catchers, ghouls, elves of pretty much every sort...). An anti-skink blitzer I am guessing will have tackle and mighty blow, and maybe piling on for the giggles. That's pretty much what Azlop has, and Azlop has the second highest casualties in the Open behind Billy Big Balls the psychotic rat ogre from hell. Stop pining for skinks, and start looking out for anyone else who thinks dodge is going to save them :)

    I do miss absent Daave though.

    GC - Ooops! I just read your poster after changing my game with Alethron to Sunday to accomodate a game in the Open for that deadline. However if I miss the deadline for the Open it will affect a mahoosive amount of people, whereas with the Divisions a delay in Div 1 should have a relatively small impact as the lower divisions likely won't be sorted until after Sunday anyway... so could we pretty pretty please have until Sunday night to play? Oh god you going to brick me aren't you?
