    Will we be running extra teams to make room for the new people in the bottom tier?

    Oh good, my MVP landed on a useful player for once and I finish off my LoS setup with a second annoying Wrestle/Fend Skeleton.

    Still wont help me for crap against the Skaven, Lizards, or Wood Elves of the Tier. Fingers are now mega-crossed for Humans, Orcs and Amazons, teams who generally get stuck in with none of this 'dodging' malarkey. If god had intended Blood Bowl players to Dodge he'd have given them two heads.

    Oh damn. Skaven ><

    Kajo's on row 15 of the Season Info tab.

    If you're talking about the Table tab, that isn't sorting people into tiers but by Divisions still as far as I can tell - so it won't be correct until after the draw.

    Wierd mix, I guess it makes him pretty good in a cage, he deters blitzing with wrestle and regular blocks with fend, if you ever roll double on him get sidestep and you get the choice of using or not using wrestle (if a non blocker BD's on you) and where to get pushed back to (so you can decide whether or not to mark the person who hit you on a push, or just what hole to block up if you do get knocked down)

    I think you use him on the line of scrimmage.

    @groovy: Yes, it helps a bit, thanks. I just can't find my name on the sheet. I guess I would have ended up in Tier 4 in any case, so I will see tonight where I'll end up.

    Groovy, did you see my post about me being away and not able to sign into a new division until next friday and therefore leaving me in div. A might be a good idea? Obviously if that isn't possible with the new system then don't worry. (I can't look at the sheet at work because google docs is blocked so I don't know what tier I'll be in.)

    I'll sit this season out, pondering whether I should retire my girls for a more bashy or a more agile team.

    Gah! Wolfie, that means rejigging the tiers below you - this is why i wanted people to decide early whether they're in or out...

    I'm reorganising now...

    Edit - and thats done, chalk one up for the tiers making this a little easier.

    If we do, I'd be happy to pick up a tasty Amazon team.

    Hah, I'm hoping to avoid your rats again - not only did you inflict my lizards 2nd defeat in 5 seasons, you beat them up so bad I've got two players missing next game, and only the apoc saved the Krox from death. Skaven aren't meant to win the bashing side of things! :-)

    Just teasing ya. But it does reflect what your estimations of the team were.

    So I am in Tier2. Same as Screwie. I already know where this is leading to.

    Tier 4 is bashy as hell. Plus some halflings. Can't anyone start an elf team?

    For your benefit, or are you planning on volunteering?

    Ideally everyone would start an elf team except me. It's a bit like the prisoner's dilemma.

    It seems that I was bumped into Tier 2, too. How am I supposed to bully my way around with so many other bashy teams?
