(Jojo is back with another round up of the weeks matches. All his views are his own!)
I love it when a game of Blood Bowl turns into a pub-carpark brawl, and this one even had a Rotter asking a trollslayer what he just said about his mum in aggrieved tones, lovely.
Only a solitary Pestigor remembered there was a ball on the pitch as the rest of them simply clumped into groups of brawling players and cries of “LEAVE IT OUT TERRY ‘E’S NOT WORTH IT!”
As usual the elves blamed anything and everything but themselves for a poor half. From the amount of audible whining you would think that they had actually conceded a touchdown. As a result the amazons then proceeded to give the Elves something to cry about, and any belief that the Stags performance against the Juniaz was a fluke was swiftly put to bed along with about half of the Stags roster. In an outstanding display of violence and referee distraction the Elves finished the match with only 4 players on the pitch. Even elves can’t win against performances like that in the end lost 2-1.
After the last week, the Spacehoppers went into the second round with much to prove. They were in good form and scoring well, but the Rainmakers seem to be catching onto this Bloodbowl business.
They started gaining momentum until in the second half when they managed to score and equaliser for a tie-game. Leaving both sides yet to actually win a match.
An early pitch invasion saw many of the gobbos more questionable devices taken down and out in a blatant act of targeted hooliganism that the game has not seen in many a year. In the pouring rain, the Halflings decided that at long last they were finally up against someone their own size and proceeded to bash and foul the ever living out of them. Eventually remembered there was a ball involved in this game, they then made the only touchdown of the match.
An over-inflated ball caused much hilarity this game, the Norse managing to score in the first half. They then managed to defend their lead against an increasingly desperate Halfling side. Their coach got so desperate he started directing fireballs against his own side to try and uproot his anchored Treemen! It’s a novel approach, although not one that seems to have worked here. Still it’s something to put in the playbook.
(Tune in next week as Jojo will be commenting again on the matches of round three).
