An anti-skink blitzer I am guessing will have tackle and mighty blow, and maybe piling on for the giggles.
    Well, Xanthia Skinkslayer has Mighty Blow, Tackle, Frenzy and Juggernaut (to hunt down Fenders and Blockers). She never got her hands on a single skink, but she IS my player with the highest SPPs.

    I built her to hunt down Daave's Lizardteam. And then he quit. :(

    She did surprisingly excel at punching Nurglings and Chaospeople around though, much to their terminal surprise.

    Sounds like a plan, PWeasel. Best not to delay the start of the season if there's an easy way to avoid it. I'll PM you the details and leave the rest in your capable Mustelid hands.

    Hi guys. I haven't heard from Pseudo since he first posted a week ago. I know we're in different timezones so I haven't caught him on Steam either. If someone does can you please remind him of Division D? I'm available most of the weekend so despite the time difference something should be doable :D

    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...)

    Also likely: Xanthia (sp?) will be killed by a skink

    Also, yes. BB is the bee's knees of my gaming. It makes me want to play more, which unfortunately I do not have time for.
    Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

    The Gears blow their noses at your silly As-lops and Big Balled Rats... Gonzi is the Killer King of the Open:

    Azlop = 1 Kill, 22 Cas
    Billy Big-Balls = 3 Kills, 25 Cas
    Gonzi = 4 Kills, 38 Cas

    :p

    Well, 1 kill and 22 Cas doesn't sound that impressive after 30 games...

    We never faced in the Divisions, Sir Weasel. That may be a one of the reasons why you still consider Amazons as weak. ;)

    Looking forward to a new season with a new Wood Elf Team :) Too many injures to the wrong players so fire the team, keep the coach and start again!

    As undead I don't care who I fight.

    Bashy teams give me more time to bash them, agile teams are squishy. I'd prefer not to face undead as my flow of free teammates is less likely but it's hardly a feeling of horror. :D

    Right, gone in and defaulted people's games who haven't played yet - most ended up 0-0 (as both people had made an effort in the groups), with DarkFenix missing his game again - you still alive DF? Let me know if you think you're going to struggle to play next season and I'm sure we can work something out. Likewise, Combat, you've not made any games this season, so you'll be on my 'dropped' list for now. If you post in here to ask to join us next season that's fine and we'll welcome you back into the fold! But I'm marking you up as Z for now.

    We're just waiting on Duffin and Alethron to play their game to shore up the promotions/demotions at the top, I'll get to work figuring the rest out. It'll probably be more disrupted than usual due to a few dropouts/reboots. Hopefully we'll have next season's divisions sorted out and ready to apply to by tonight....

    /Edit - Also, ntw and whiskytangofox, closest tiebreak we've ever had, both with a TD difference of +0 (identical results against all 3 opponents!) and ntw's cas difference being 0 (5 scored, 5 received) to wtf's 1 (6 scored, 5 received). Literally one additional CAS scored took the second place :-)

    Wow, crazy finish for Div E.... It'll be interesting to see where the teams end up next season.

    It's taken all season (due to some really crappy winnings rolls) but I can finally afford an apothecary. At last, my poor squishy elves have a slightly better chance of surviving next season. *Sorely tempts Nuffle*

    Woohoo, 2 bashy teams coming to Div. F! This is gonna be fun :) (Although I'd better start stocking up one halfling spares)

    Oh wow, could it be? In a division with two other elfball teams?? I've never been so lucky!

    ...I'm going to get promoted out of Div 6 before the season starts, aren't I? :(
