HDWSBBL takes the prizes at NAF Championships 2014

Good Morning Blood Bowl Coaches!

 

Fantastic news from the NAF Championships 2014 (or should it be 2514?)!  HDWSBBL came, saw and conquered!

 

Gitz and Shigglez coached by Sandwich went 2 wins 2 draws and 2 losses to WIN THE STUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP!

Facing off against some of the biggest names in Blood Bowl including new president Beppe and Chance from Three Die Block (who he pitch cleared!) Sandwich gained the coverted “Stunty Lord” cloak in round 3 and 4 only to lose it to NazGob in round 5.  With the tension building on the last game of the championship Sandwich pulled a fantastic draw to steal  (well they are goblins after all) the cloak and the trophy from the NazGob’s Halflings hands and bring it back to the HDWSBBL.

Surely this means we will see the Gitz back in the league soon after their Old World tour.

 

All hail the Lord of the Stunties and the newly self-styled “Stunty World Champion” Sandwich.

 

 

All Quiet….

Well at least the play-offs are in full swing and into the conference finals! Here at the HDWSBBL we must apologies to all fans and coaches for the very lack lust updates and reports we are normally quite well equipped with (Apart from the weekly summary’s which have been great). A fresh season means a fresh start and we will endeavour to do so, we hope to do the following before the start of season 9:

Update the Match Report Sheets (This has actually now been done and you can now use the fabulous new sheet at the resources page).

– Overhaul the design of the website.

– Overhaul the Warzone with new features such as, player of the week, team of the month, new signings, a full obituary page and of course a new look.

– Check over all players, matches, teams, awards, did you knows, competition pages, season pages and stat pages and make sure all information is up-to-date and in order.

– Roll in planned new features which have been on the cards for some time now.

– Get the team news network back on-line and overhaul the design and clear any out of date blogs.

– Post more content and reviews (We need Gerhard back!)

– Send countless e-mails to Andy (Gerhard) to come back to the league! (He can drive now!).

If there are any suggestions please get in touch in the comments section. Enjoy the rest of the season and here’s to the new season!

Social Outlets of the HDWSBBL

Hello sports fans, Bob Fortune here of the HDWSBBL Press Office and today I would like to share with you the various ways in which the HDWSBBL communicates with it’s fans.

But not only that you can catch the views and opinions of the most prolific characters and critics of the league including the Jainitor in the Broom Cupboard, Kai Konani (previous head coach of the famous Teotigua Predators) in Kai’s Korner and The Doc on his blog Ask the Doc. To catch up with the latest head over to the TNN following this link below:

Warzone! (A partner of Sly Sports)

The Warzone is the main place for all official news that happens in the league. Expect weekly summery of all the matches that took place, recent signings, obituary’s and other such news. Warzone: Extra Time! on the TNN also covers all the recent rumours that are ripe around the league so be sure to check that out as well.

Not only can you view the news items but you can also comment on it! All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of the page, and where the tags are located there should be a comments link you can click. You can post comments here and also view what others have also commented too! This feature is ripe throughout the HDWSBBL website as well as the TNN, it’s free and you may post anonymously if you wish, the only requirement is an email address which is used to alert you if anyone makes a reply or comments on the same post as you.

Planned Outlets

The HDWSBBL Press Office are always looking out to improve the way news is reached to it’s fans and we plan to have these following features implemented as soon as possible:

  • Twatter (Commonly know as Twitter)
  • Revamp of the Warzone Main Page
  • Implementing the TNN to the main website
  • RSS Feeds
  • And updating social features.

So there are several ways to get involved with the social side of the league and there is plenty being reported about. If you wish to know more get in touch with us here at the press office and we will endeavour to reply to your questions and comments.

Happy Socialising!

Announcing the Team News Network (TNN)

Over the past few weeks, we have been hard at work developing the latest addition to the HDWSBBL family, the HDWSBBL Team News Network.

The Team News Network is a collection of sites that are run by the coaches themselves to provide “the latest team news, in their own words”. The main site of the network will pull together the latest news and entries from the networked sites. As mentioned above each site will be run by the coaches who will have free reign to post the news, match comments, general comments or anything they feel like relating to their team.

For this launch, we only have a few blogs on there; The archive of the RSV site (don’t worry if you didn’t know it existed before), the Loren Rangers and three guinea pigs in the form of The Innsmouth Shadows, the Predators and Damage Inc. Content is available now so please feel free to explore and comment.

If you would like to be a part of the network then drop me an email. We do ask that you can make an entry at least once a month to keep things fresh. Things are developing quickly at the moment so initially, there will only be basic features and designs available but things will quickly improve and be integrated with the main site here so keep watching.

Hope you enjoy your new create output!
