    Pricing aside, I wouldn't actually mind if they just made the versions cross-compatible, sort of like the first Dawn of War and its million expansions. As it is, it just looks like a cynical attempt to split the database and force people to update to continue playing with their community.

    Edit: Huh I completely forgot about the Dark Elf upgrade. Hopefully it'll be like that, even if it isn't free this time.

    To be honest, that content doesn't sound very promising. I would prefer sticking to LE instead of upgrading but will accept the league's decision (assuming that owners of LE cannot play with owners of the expansion).

    Due to holidayistic reasons, laneford and me are probably going to need an extension to the 10th or 11th of April if feasible for the final match in Div A, which is kind of decisive, too.

Given Cyanide's track record with balance, I would not be surprised if their big guy was a Bloodthirster. Basically I don't see the need for it. If they could only manage two teams they should have spent the time on more Star Players instead.
    The Tzeentch Blood bowl team would be the best, only a few guys in a hoods would show up but most of the opposition team would be off sick too, and you'd be able to use rerolls on your opponents rolls.

    Thanking yous. I suppose I could've just done that. But didn't know if it would break any spreadsheet-trickery magicks etc. :)

    Also, regarding new races. Should I be interested in Chaos Dorfs? Never played them before. How do they differ from their cheating stunty non-chaos cousins?

    0-6 Chaos Dorf Blockers (basically just normal Dorfs except they have mutations on doubles)
    0-16 Hobgoblins (I think it's 16 anyway, like Human linemen except with AV7)
    0-2 Bull Centaurs (high movement ST4 monsters, totally awesome)
    Also a minotaur but that remains shit.

    They've got a solid bash core, but they're not quite as ridiculous (SIXTEEN GUARDS) as normal dorfs, and have more mobility.

    Yep, imagine a Dwarf side but faster, with more AG 3 and access to high ST.

    Conversely the Underworld side is a bit of an oddball. A skaven/goblin mix without Gutter Runners or Secret Weapons but the cannon fodder awesomeness of goblins and Chaos-level amounts of mutations.

    Stunty + Two Heads + Horns = Fun times.

    I love Underworld, they're ridiculously good fun, even if the injury-proneness means they're not terribly competetive in the long run.

    Bull Centaurs are like Mv8 and start with sprint, I think. Horrible.

    These Bull Centaurs intrigue me. Power AND speed? Surely not!

    Anupshi Rises (Khe, DogPants) 2 - 1 Agathis Avengers (WElf, AgP)

    The final match of division F is lined up with the top spot still up for grabs from three teams and no real indication of which way things will go. The Wood Elves of Agathis Avengers receive the first kick, effortlessly recovering the ball but failing to breach the Khemri line. Capitalising on containing the Elves, one of the Tomb Guardians opens the Anupshi Rises play by injuring an Elven lineman. A few catchers manage to seep through the line, but the fight takes its toll with another Avenger lineman picking up an injury when trying to block his way through. Without the Elven distraction tactic of their runners behind the opposition line it wasn't long before one of the Anupshi Blitz-Ras managed to circumvent the besieged Elves around the ball carrier and knock him to the ground on the half way line. The ball remains loose as the Khemri Thro-Ra runs forward from the rear, but Agathis Avengers sweep it back up without trouble. The delay has been enough for Anupshi Rises to flood the area though, and the recovering Elven thrower is immediately put back down by the arm of a lurching Tomb Guardian. This time the Thro-Ra is in position, recovers the ball and sets off unsupported towards the touchline. The fast elves, tied up with skeletons, break out a lineman to sack the escaping Thro-Ra, but bad luck strikes again and the Elf injures himself in the process. With the rest of the team diminished and tied up in brawls the Khemri's most (and only) agile player cruises over the line to score.

    The second half sees a bloodied Agathis Avengers facing up to their opponents, down to eight players against a fighting team. To add insult to injury, the clouds part to reveal glaring sunshine, further hindering their throwing game. Anupshi Rises have no such concern, and they march their ball carrier up the short staffed left field while the Wood Elves are tied up from their deployment on the right. Picking up defenders, the cage moves towards the touchline like a mummy pursuing its victim, and while the defenders react quickly with the agility of an elven team, they can only slow the attackers' advance. As the cage gets squeezed towards the sideline by a concerted effort of Elves, spearheaded by their Wardancer, the Khemri use their greater numbers to envelop them as the ball carrier and his escorts edge past. With mere yards for the Thro-Ra to travel and a defending cage, the Elves make a last push. Hurling herself at the skeletal ball carrier, over the top of his escorts, the unlucky Wardancer only succeeds in landing heavily and injuring herself. The Thro-Ra steps over her to score.
    With very little time on the clock the teams line up to brawl the rest of the game away. In a superb twist of fate, however, an extremely short kick leaves the ball in the hands of an Elven catcher on the centre line. Facing off against the weak Thro-Ra Agathis Avengers are suddenly presented with a last-ditch opportunity to score. The Wood Elves rally a precision attack which opens up the Anupshi right flank, and while the defenders are tied up fighting on the line of scrimmage, injuring another lineman, the plucky catcher runs hell for leather towards the touchline. A lone Blitz-Ra almost catches the runner, his outstretched bony fingers brushing the Elf's armour, but as the referee puts the whistle to his lips the catcher streaks across the line to claw back a brilliant touchdown and a respectable scoreline.

    The second season ends far more favourably in promotion for Coach DogPants, and the team's pharaowners retract their threats of a live burial. The rest of the coaching staff, particularly, are relieved - since Anupshi Rises could have finished bottom of the division they had already been interred in preparation. They gleefully claw their way out of the sand, chanting "Hoo-ray Anupshi Rises!"

    6-4-2-9 with Sprint, Sure Feet and Thick Skull, actually.

    I can't remember if they used to move quicker pre-LR6. Still damn fast for a ST4 though.

    Nice to see the pun we missed out on last season. However, I notice you posted this at 11.10 o'clock; if you had only delayed another 51 minutes we could have technically got an "early in the morning!" in there too.

    If we do end up conceding I'd be ok with a draw. I don't want to end up ahead in champs just because I got a default.

    Sorry to post this here - but mobile phones and forum navigation... ugh.

    Gorm, I'll be back late tomorrow night, about our usual time [10, 11] - Can I deny you the championship then?

    I'm really confused with what's happening in Div 3, which game do I need to be playing at the moment? Is my game with Jaytee being defaulted or do we still have time to try and squeeze this in before week 3?

    It's already week 3, so I suggest you get in touch with JayTee as soon as possible and see how soon you can play your game. Then talk to the other players in your Division and see if they can still fit their final game in.

    Yeah, what PW said - I was giving you guys in div 3 a little extra time to get your games in after the fixture 'mistake' - I saw your request to be defaulted a couple of pages back but was giving you until the other game had been played at least to get it sorted. If you still haven't, I'm happy to set it to a draw so you can all move on. Likewise, I'll be drawing Jiiim's game in the champs tonight, too, unless I hear otherwise. I'll be more lenient with both these divisions if you don't get your games in by the deadline, so don't worry :-).

    Deadline for season end is in 5 days, on the 8th!
