    Newbie!

    Hi all,

    I have played the board game on and off now for about 3 years but I have recently brought and downloaded the legendary edition.

    I am looking to get into some tornaments as playing against better players is only going to make me better as well!

    However there seems to be loads of tournaments on here running at the same time! Can someone point me in the direction of the friendliest tournament for a new person!

    I am looking to get started around the 20th of August as I am going away for a quick holiday until then!

    Thanks in advance,

    Coxy

    Hello! All the leagues are friendly, but the Open has seasons that run essentially forever so you'd be waiting a long time to get in there. The Divisions of Death runs on a (roughly) 30 day cycle, with the current season due to end on the 27th, so go there, read the setup instructions and add yourself to the spreadsheet for next season.

    You can also join the Challenge "league" which isn't really a structured league, it's just a place to arrange matches. Or there's a Steam group but I don't know how active that is.

    No problem! I'll try to remember to approve your team(s) tonight, but hopefully one of the other admins will get there first.

    @Coxy It's probably worth joining the Steam RPS Blood Bowl group, if only so you know who these people are who send you steam invites to arrange matches...

    Think I have just joined! There isn't a group picture correct?

    That would be correct.

    As the season is drawing to an end I have been getting ready to join.

    I thought I would try to spectate a game but couldn't connect "Failed to establish a connection".

    I went through the set up guide and got myself a static ip, opened the ports on my router and still no luck!

    Is it something I am doing wrong or an error that happens sometime?

    Have you managed to play any matches, in the challenge league or elsewhere?
