No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!
Started writing a blog for video games, roleplaying, game mechanics, and AARs.
OK, I accepted the teams for a bunch of divisions and started the seasons. I am having a hell of a time with the seeding manager though, because Cyanide.
The following Divisions have been started off, and at least their first fixture is correct (note: when scheduling your second fixture, check Cyanide thinks it's the same one the spreadsheet does)
The following are currently wrong, unless the seeding manager worked but didn't update the fixtures straight away because Cyanide:
And Division K is still waiting for Troll McFail
All right, seriously now - the seeding manager is a heap of old toss. When you're arranging your matches, do me the favour of checking the Cyanide calendar matches the spreadsheet. I've done what I can, but I have limited reserves of patience.

If we need a filler team, I'd be happy to donate an Underworld team** or something?

Sorry for my recent silence guys, busy personal stuff going on and basically I'm also fed up of being Nuffled by the RNG in BloodBowl.
Therefore I am no longer around and participating in the DoD, apologies to anyone who may have been affected by my sudden and mysterious disappearance.
If I develop unexpected reserves of patience in the future, or nostalgia overwhelms the bitterness then I may make a glorious return*.
I'll still be around on the forums and/or steam if anyone needs me, and of course I'm always available to help with the sheet.
*The value of your "Glorious return" investment may go down as well as up.
Getting nuffled is all part of the "fun" (or at least, it makes the rare, glorious occasions when you don't double-1 that vital go for it all the sweeter). I miss you ntw, I miss your sweet little face.
In all seriousness, I hope to see you again next season - in the meantime give me a shout if you ever fancy a challenge league.
Ok, I'll be on later, but if anyone else wants to start some divisions, feel free! If not, we'll all be going tonight so start planning your games (remembering to use the groups!).
/edit- just read weasels post above, get playing then! And yeah, the seeding thing is broken, especially once it stops showing you your results ;-). Optimum has until tonight, but if you want to be a filler team in k, and get your application in now...

I fixed 'G' and checked the others as well, all of them should match up with the spreadsheet now.
Applied to Div K with a filler team, "Teefer Madness" - not Underworld, I went with an experimental Goblin-heavy Orc team in the end.
Div K was started yesterday, and in case you hadn't realised,
season was GO! as of Saturday night
Get organising chaps (and chapettes)!
Psst, what is the Div K situation?
You're in screwie, enjoy throwing gobbos :-)
(apologies to optimus for missing out this season, you're welcome to get your application in next season!)
Remember folks - the matches in the Cyanide game are supposed to match the spreadsheet. I went through them and fixed them, and Jolima went through and double-checked, and fixed the one I couldn't.
However, it would still be a good idea when scheduling your matches to pop into the game and check that the calendar for your league is showing the match you expect. Waiting til the last minute and finding out the Cyanide game thinks you're playing someone else, and that there's no time to fix it, would be bad.
This also applies to your second week of games.
Added myself to the spreadsheet, although not showing up on the leaderboards yet (I think the sheet needs re-sorting?). I will check the fixtures in-game tonight after work, but since both Optimus and myself are the lowest in the alphabet of that group it probably doesn't need fixing.
Fixed now, someone inserted a line, causing confusion, and then enlightenment for me :-)
Won 3-1, 6 man fouled a High Elf Blitzer, my Catcher named Freedom died trying a 2+ dodge with a reroll.
I like playing as Elves. Longer AAR tomorrow.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
God that game was horrible for me! Looked so good when your catcher died on turn 3/4.... and then I at one point ended up with 5/6 players for half the game due to K/Os. Could have been a lot worse, well done for keeping your spirits up after the death!
