    Division 2
    Beasts of Bembridge 2 - 0 Kajers


    The Beasts of Bembridge faced a herculean task to win promotion, needing a five-touchdown victory to overtake Screwie's elveses. Despite just about the best possible result, a pitch invasion stunning nine of the receiving opponents, and luck pretty much staying consistent from there, it was always unlikely - Nurgle have rarely been described as a free-scoring team.

    As such, team-building was the order of the day, with the ball being smuggled to nearly-levelled players, three of whom picked up levels on the way to a leisurely 2-0 win.

    Sorry Kajo, didn't really stand a chance with those dice. At least there was no permanent damage to your team.

    You may still be in with a chance, since ties are calculated on eliminations as well as touchdowns, and my elves don't tend to rack up the injuries.

    But I think that touchdowns are considered first and only if that results in another tie the injuries are taken into account.

    Screwie has the right of it, because otherwise the tiebreaker would be unbalanced in favour of high-scoring teams. The formula is:

    Tiebreaker Score = (TDs Scored - TDs Conceded) + (Injuries Caused - Injuries Received)

    That rule must be rather new then. Good to see though that things are a bit more fair for slower, bashy teams.

    That's been in place for a good few seasons now.

    That's been the rule since the DoD started.

    Hm, I still remember worrying about that specific part of the "Detailed Rules" tab on the spreadsheet. My mind might be playing tricks on me though.

    Aye, it just comes up quite rarely. Drop outs and restarts have to be dealt with first, rendering a lot of division ties moot.

    Ypu, that rule's been in place for a long while now. I have little post-its everywhere with calculations for tie-breakers at the end of each season strewn around my PC like blood-bowl-inspired confetti. Is it a perfect tie-breaker? Probably not, but it's certainly the best one we've come up with so far.

    FINAL WARNING: I will be defaulting any outstanding games tomorrow morning, first thing to end this season. Expected live draw for the new season will be SUNDAY night.

    Ok, games defaulted and all are in a tier for the LIVE DRAW, which will be happening tonight, 7pm sharp in our steam group. Be there or have to find out your place by reading the sheet later!

    As predicted, tier 2 is going to be a bastard.

    2 Orc
    4 Chaos
    2 Dwarf
    2 Nurgle
    1 Khemri

    Out of 16 teams...

    Errrp, let me revisit the tiering laneford, forgot about that one ;-)

    /Now modified (this is why I prefer this divisions structure, quick changes!), with the 3 returning players (who all came from tier 1 or champs when they left) squeezed into tier 2. Just making it even more competitive/painful there :-). Apologies to those who thought they'd nabbed a free promotion....

    I'm sorry to maybe cause more reshuffling work for Groovy, but it only now occurred to me that I maybe ought to report Skydancer as absent too.

    This post of his from several weeks ago had me mentally file him as 'back next season', but someone should probably check with him to make sure that's the case. I've seen him around on Steam the last few days, so if people that are enjoying their Sunday at home instead of being at work like me (*begins his violin solo*) could ask him, that could save future juggling.

    I did, and I haven't. I'll be back at some point.
