    It really is pretty annoying that so many of the Star Players have been left out of the game as some races (Skaven come to mind) rely pretty heavily on those extra hands (or paws) to help them out when being the underdog.

    It's sad to see that Cyanide have wasted the opportunity to include more than 2 or 3 new SP guys in the new updated version. After all, they intend to charge money for that again.

    Applied to Div 2, which is exactly the same as it was season before last - same coaches, same teams. This time I'll win though, for now I have the untold power of block zombie!

    Skaven and Chaos are the hardest hit, I think. Skaven's most useful star players are nowhere to be seen and Chaos doesn't have anyone they can hire for less than 300k right now, which is crazy.

    Aside from that I would love to see the effect of Secret Weapon proliferation on the game if all the SW star players were added.

    Also I miss the unspectacular but generally useful blitzer/blocker star players like Hubris, Zug, Roxanna, etc.

    I applied but have not yet (as of yesterday evening) been accepted in D so it's likely not that low yet.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    Yeah, Div 7 hasn't been resolved yet either, obviously.

    As usual the answer is: spreadsheet!

    There is a "season status" tab on the spreadsheet where the admins keep track of which divisions still need apps (since the last time they checked). And it usually takes about a week or so to get all the applications in and get things moving, so don't start getting too impatient yet :)

    Oh, and applications get accepted from top down (starting w/ champs, 1/A, 2/B, etc), so in general things won't get accepted until (mostly) everyone has applied.

    Thanks potatoe, I had checked the spreadsheet a few days ago when the old season 17 information was still present and therefore assumed that it was out of date anyways. I'm not unpatient (yet!), my post was merely born out of curiosity.

    I'd like to get in on this as well. How soon until the next season starts, and is there a FAQ for new teams?

    Hi all, I'm back and see we're pretty close to starting the new season. Just missing now:

    Div 1 - Duff
    Div 3 - Mr Pier
    Div 5 - Kapouille
    Div 6 - Cacamas and El_Cubo
    Div 8 - Xenny
    Div A - Hughtower


    I've updated the season status tab, too ;-)

    All other divisions are waiting on those above to get started. I was hoping we could get going today, so hopefully the remaining few can get their applications in today?

    New guys (DaMark and chadsexington) - we might have enough of you new peoples now to add in an extra division. If not everyone turns up, then new guys will fill in in order of application on the sheet (N1,N2 next to you names on the spreadsheet indicates this). If everyone does turn up, there's 3 of you, so as long as one of our old hands is willing to stick a filler team in there with you, you can apply for division 8. Keep a close eye in here today and tomorrow and we'll see what we can do to squeeze you into this season. If you need more information for now, take a look at our Spreadsheet which hopefully explains most of how we run our season etc.

    I'm willing to do a filler team this season. I'm even willing to do a brand new filler team, and to avoid the bashy ones. How about pro elfs?

    Hey everyone, yesterday I stumbled across a small problem that I hope somebody can help me with. In order to try out a few things with my team setup, I used the BB Single Player mode and played a match with a new 1000 TV team (11 players) against a 1300 TV computer AI (yeah, I know...). For inducements, I chose an additional journeyman player. Then during team setup before kick-off 11 players appeared on the pitch (as it should be) but there was no extra guy for exchange on the sidelines (or "backline"). Does anybody know if this is intended or a bug? I found nothing in the rulebook that could explain the disappearance of the 12th man.

    That's a bug I've seen in multiplayer a few times. It really sucks when it happens in the second half of a close game.

    Thanks duff, this then is something to be very careful with if you are planning to base your strategy around getting a deeper bench via inducements. Hopefully this will be fixed in future patches.

    It's one of the reasons why i tend to not buy Zara anymore. In 3 of 4 games I use her that placing bug happens and I start the game with a fucked up positioning.

    Occasionally selecting one of the preset layouts can bring vanished people back.
