    So option 1 then. I don't argue that Helio shouldn't play a filler team, but making an artificial all-Snots team that he's not continuing to play when the divisions even out again seems a bit unfair to other teams that have to face real opposition. Just my view and not really a complaint, I am not playing in this league after all.

    It's Helio, I figure he has some diabolically cunning plan by default.

    Also he's facing rookie Chaos, Lizards and High Elves, all of whom should be hilariously inept at knocking over snotlings. I agree there should be oversight for "SPP candy fountain" style abuses, but in that environment an all-snot team could be an interesting (and borderline competitive) challenge - especially with the amount of inducement cash he'll get.

    Touché.

    Edit: I have to disagree with the other points though. He'll be getting three-diced on every block and Snotlings break like glass when pushed over. The Ogre team with Ogres is borderline competitive, Snotlings sure ain't. I won't argue any further though, initially I just wanted to understand what's going on.

    Well I've accepted Helio's team. If Groovy (or the consensus) wants to pass judgement that an all snots team isn't allowed we can still just admin the games to draws.

    I'm for it. I'd rather have seen a proper team, but any team and therefore some matches is better than none. The guys in Division M scrambled their division together at the last minute and have had less time than everyone else to get their matches in, we might as well hand them some relatively easy games against snotlings.
    Be aware however that the games might not be that easy - these are starting teams with a dearth of tackle, and helio will either have vast numbers of cheap foulers or he'll have large incentives to play with. Also, Helio's got game, yo. As long as he's trying to win these won't be walkovers.

    Midnight Sparkles(Vam) vs Look No Hands(Und)

    Listen to the totally rad Sewer Surfin' song while reading the write-up for maximum effect! RADICAL!


    A totally radical match dude! Cowabunga! I surfed a level 2 ghoul and it killed him, BODACIOUS! The next half I surfed two of the opponents zombies in one turn, SICK! Also I did some elfish dodging and stupid bullshit like picking up the ball and running halfway down the pitch and being all cool like that, but let's be honest, that's totally not as rad as surfing, brah.

    A 1-0 victory for the Midnight Sparkles! You can't stop the sparkle(unless you are the wood elves, in which case just slaughter my whole team you heartless bastard)!

    Also if my math holds up I don't think I can advance to the next tier this season unless we have enough drop outs.

    That's the most radical match report I've ever read/listened to. And don't worry, you can easily advance through the divisions without ever making #1 place in any of them. You just need to believe in yourself and pepperoni pizza!

    I'm refusing to listen to that song - the memory of poor Ribfeeder being violated by the crowd is still too vivid in my mind. If it's any consolation, Simon Belmont (ex-thrall, now zed) is playing a game of "Are you tougher than an Andrex puppy" with my two mummies.

    It was quite a bloody match . My two remaining ghouls managed to play (badly) Ghoul Ball Pickup for a number of turnovers.

    Slightly off topic, but I fucking love that game. Best beatem up I've played on the SNES by miles.

    Enjoy your match Darkmalice and Helio. Also, don't underestimate them, Helio is a Div A player and i hope you stomp on them!
    Also, Helio, are you allowing yourself to get star players with the rest of the money or are you just going for the standard wizard + 3 bribes setup?

    And a question for an admin! Why is there no option to play Khorne? Is it just because you decided that only official teams are valid or is there any other reason?

    Yeah, it's because certain outspoken admins (*cough*me*cough*) think it's a poorly-playtested made-up nonsense team and don't approve of it.

    I am allowing myself goblin 'big guys' and I imagine bloodwiser babes will be a big help vs elves, wizards are a big 'fo sho'.

    Done. Validated the other match in G too.
    I also reset my match against boots after my PC froze up just before kickoff. Shame, because I was definitely winning. Rematch on Thursday.

    Just played a brutal but tight match in Div F: my goblins vs MrJoose's dwarves. There were a fair few points where it could have gone either way. MrJoose managed to get out of a very tight situation after failing to declare a blitz (pick-up in tackle zone, dodge, two GFIs... with a blocker). Cyanide forced me to put both my remaining secret weapons on the pitch, even though I had a sub, making me use both bribes... which, more annoyingly, made me use the chainsaw when I wouldn't have done, who kicked back and ended any chance of a 1TTD. My second chance for a 1TTD, in the last turn of the match, was also abortive, with the ball going far too deep. But the low point for me was a T16 block by MrJoose which killed Frederick, my level 4 troll: dead to dead, regen failed, no money to replace him. Oh well. Final score: 2-1 to the dwarves.

    Anyway, if an admin could kindly validate it, it would be appreciated, thanks!
