No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!
Just Played my Div 5 Match with Gorm today. 2-0 to me. It might have been 1-1 if gorm had maybe a bit more men or pushed harder, because he had some vamps with the ball right next to my touchdown line and it took awhile to get the ball off him. With lots of fails and re-rolls. It was quite tense. After that though he was kind of having a losing battle with the amount of men he had, dodging helped him a lot and he nearly took away the ball from me near the end but I got it off him since it was only one guy and he wasn't that well protected. Gorm fought valiantly despite the numbers issue.
Yea was a good game, i'm pleased with my vamps performance even though we lost. Now i have an amazing 9 man team ready for next game and should have enough to buy one more thrall. Meaning i will only have one journeyman, instead of the four i had for this match.
Journeythralls - I might recommend saving your money til you've got enough to field 12 mans. Not much point putting a brand new thrall out there to be injured when you could put some hirelings you don't care about into the line of fire instead.
Some might say you should buy your mans as early as possible so they have time to level up, but the beauty of my plan (or Operation Cannon Fodder, as I call it) is that if any of your disposable journeymen has the amazing luck to not only survive the match unhurt but also to pick up a decent number of SPPs, you'll have the cash on hand to buy him at the end of the game.
(this is also a course of action I would recommend with journeychaosmans, journeyrats, journeyskeletons, journeyorcs, journeynorse, journeyzons, journeyhumans and journeyrotters. Maybe less so with journeyelves though - one of the advantages of the elfs is that you can expect even the rawest newbie to be able to pick the ball up and pass it, so you might not want to risk loner spoiling your plans.)

Yea this is true, i was thinking about it before. I forget that you can buy the journeymen if they do well so i'll probably go with what you said.
Well I've never been a position to afford it, but I was wondering...
Is Cyanide accurate in only offering the linemen/women/rats/things that turn up automatically as available for hire, or should mercenaries you've paid for with inducements also be purchasable after a match?
Also, do journeymen lose Loner once you hire them?
I think that's correct, but I haven't played tabletop. They do lose Loner.
They definitely lose loner, not sure about the first quesiton.

Managed to get the Phill-Cameron All-Lizard scrapping match done. DINOBATTLE ENGAGE.
Jiiim just lost the "makes the best match reports" crown to... Jiiim again!
Hail to the King, baby.
I vote that match reports be made the official end of season tie breaker thus sending jim up the league table.
It seems no one else did it, so I just kicked out the filler teams in div E and F.
Reserves: Get applying! It works now!
Hokay, have applied to F, thanks Jolima! Haven't got time to make another team to apply to E.
Accepted the application and fixed the spreadsheet to have the correct schedule. Please organize your match with Schizoslayer in the forum group as soon as you can.
There's still a slot open in div E.
I want to end up in the same div as Jiiiiim. This is now my ultimate goal for the league.
Please, players in the top leagues, do not drop or reroll unless required to do so, because I need to calculate how many wins and losses I now need.

Maddave and I played our match today and it was a game of give and take
De-Composure (onestepfromlost) 0-2 Fly soup (Maddave123)
Im rubbish at these so ill just summarise, Basically after a superb pass across the field from one side to the other dave got his first touchdown, but i made up for it by killing his level 3 beast and one of his beastmen (i think) then he scored again. Ill take the loss for the satisfaction of killing his beast :D
