    I am reading this as an implicit criticism of Chainsawhands. After all Chaos Dwarf and goblins are pretty similar aren't they, they've both got payers called Goblins on the team?

    I actually have to ask - how do you watch an ongoing match, unless one of the participants is streaming?

    Note that you always start watching from the start of the game regardless of how long it's been playing. Numpad +/- to speed up/slow down play until you catch up.

    In the early days of the Altdorf Army my Ogre, the late lamented Torg'n'Thorg (no relation), would be given the ball on touchbacks. I would then declare "HAMMER TIME!!!" in chat and see what happened. He was my joint highest TD scorer for quite a while. Wold run the play with a Catch standing behind him to hand-off to in to take advantage of the opponent over committed in front of him my Ogre.

    Always remember with Minos you can decalre a Blitz but not actually hit someone, makes them way more reliable at moving for the price of giving up your Blitz.

    Amazingly this is something I only found out this year. All the time I'd been playing my minotaur "honestly".

    All other blitzes too. I've since learned how useful it is to be able to bail out on a blitz, being able to stop short and say "nope" after you had to waste the TRR you were saving for a block on the dodge or GFI roll to get there is sometimes the right thing to do.

    Div F - Elf off - (Ethelred) Nuffle accursed Dark Elves 2 - 1 Nuffle accursed High Elves (me)

    Could have gone either way I think, Nuffle was at her most capricious for both of us. Thanks for the game Ethelred!

    Highlight of the game for me - A wizard fireball that actually did it's job in helping me score a defensive TD!

    Note for other, bashier, members of the league, Ethelred has a -AV blitzer called "Ethelred"... make of this what you wish..

    I'm worse than Helio these days. That's because I try to live by the mantra "what would Helio do?" whereas the inspiration for my murdering and fouling spree has gone soft.

    That's right, Helio. Soft and toothless, like a pleasant-tempered old lady. Perhaps we can get you some gruel to gum, while pretending to listen to stories about your grandchildren.

    A relatively lucky 2-1 victory in the Champs over the very determined and irritating Norse of frenz0rz's Heroes of Holmgard, gave my Nurgle their first three points of the season.

    Plan A of hitting the scantily clad vikings until they refused to get up didn't work very well, so I was reduced to plan B, which consisted of a hastily botched, far too risky offense somehow scraping a T8 TD on my drive, and a sneaky hit, steal and pass for a as-it-turned-out match winning second TD on frenz0rs first drive. (T10/T11 I think).

    Sweltering Heat reduced me to 9 players for the reply, but after a botched pass, frenz0rs eventually gave up on trying to get 2 quick replies to force the draw, and resorted to crowdsurfing sidestepping Nurgle warriors, before getting a consolation TD at the death.

    For the first and almost certainly last time, I am top of the entire divisions!

    Look up at me, mortals, and cower. ​In amusement.

    It was an enjoyable game and you certainly didn't give me much room to manoeuvre, so it became one of those great games of thinking on your feet and exploiting any available opportunity. I must admit I swore quite (very) loudly when you stole the ball and passed it in for a winning TD, but it was well played and I very much look forward to our next encounter.

    Alas, the final turn blocks resulted in the Heroes losing yet another Yhetee. Fourth time lucky?

    I was about to say something along the lines of "dammit Laneford couldn't you at least have hurt some of them?" but I see thanks to you I'll be facing a rookie yhetee. A rhookee, if you will. That'll do, pig.
    Still could have done with you getting a draw though, I hate and fear your Nurgles at the best of times, and "already two points behind" doesn't count as best.

    Just a reminder that week one ends tomorrow!!!111

    Most of the games have been played, with the exception of those bastards in Division G, so well done chaps and chapesses. Unless I get requests for reasonable extensions I will admin results on Friday night. I will start rolling other divisions later today so that you can play asap.

    Hi, I'd be interested in giving this a go, I would be extremely bad though. Do I just enter my details into the spreadsheet now, or do I wait for this season to end?
