Season 14 – Week 3 – Where is the Blood?

This feels like the third round, but I can’t tell for sure without looking it up and HA HA HA Good luck with that. Whatever:


North Division

Gaen Vale Stags 4 (0) – 1 (0) Norsca Wild Fire

At this point, there can now be no doubt that there’s at least one elf team thats playing to expected form.

Three touchdowns before the end of the first half? That’s a proper elfing that is.

They then kindly took a siesta in the second half, only scoring one more time before deciding to let the Norse have the ball as those berzerkers were beginning to take things a little personally, as one elf with a hilariously fractured skull could attest.

Beards of Zeus 2 (4) – 0 (2) The Bloated Bile Blitzers

The Blitzers were eager to prove that they weren’t daunted by the Beard’s win over potential league favourites the Brak Var Dreadnaughts last round.

They should have been. They really really should have been.

Putting down a drive mere yards away from the TD zone with almost comtemptous ease the beards then ground downhill in their traditional fashion for the first touchdown.

Second half saw the Dwarfs casually maintain their lead against an increasingly desperate Blitzers and score again. In two games, the Beards have shown themselves to be the ones to beat in this division, with the next rounds match-up between the Stags and the Dreadnaughts being as crucial as their own with Norsca Fire in determining who will come out on top.


South Division

Har Ganeth Vipers 1 (1) – 1 (0) Lokomotiv Lustria BBFC

I was going to start this report by pointing out that Elf teams have had mixed results this season, but then this round happened and unfortunately I don’t get to say that anymore. Bastards.

In the beginning it looked like Lustria Loco weren’t going to do anything to shift that trend as they gleefully smashed their way forward with the momentum they’d built up so far this season. Leading 1-0 in the first half, Locomotive seemed to have everything in hand. Then the Vipers had a singular moment of elvish bullshit that turned a 1-0 win and potentially an unassailable position top of the league for the Locos into a one all draw… that still puts the Loco’s in a pretty good position on the top of the table to be honest.

DC Marvels 1 (3) – 1 (2) Liz \’n\’ Let Die

These “elves” managed to get an early TD, but the Lizzies rallied back to equalise. A scrappy second half saw neither side able to break the deadlock, resulting in a one-all draw that sees Liz N Let Die maintain their 3pt trail from the division leaders Lustria Locomotive. At this point it seems like only the Thunderers could possibly beat the Loco’s in points in the South Division.

The next round will be crucial it seems…

Season 14 – Week 2 – GOAT No More!?

What? I’m up! I’m up! Fine! Anyway, match reports… match reports… ah! Here they are [throws stack of papers at reporter]


North Division

The Bloated Bile Blitzers (2) 1 vs 1 (0) Norsca Wild Fire

A poor kick-off from the Bile Blitzers saw them 1-0 down by the second turn and put them on the defensive in the first half. But after the half-time break the Blitzers rallied back, scoring a volley of injuries against their lightly armoured northern opponents. I mean, not Touchdowns, but this is the Bile Blitzers, they don’t go into that sort of guache thinking. Well, apart from that one Pestigor who keeps scoring when the rest of them are content to keep pounding on their opponents.

He’s a weird one he is.

Beards of Zeus (1) 1 vs 0 (0) Barack Varr Dreadnauts

The DN’s coach warned us this would happen. The DN’s had been getting cocky in the aftermath of their crushing 4-0 win in the Summer League and this was the inevitable result. Coming up against a staunch traditional playing Dwarf team (IE: one that cheats like a goblin team but with better armour) their ill-advised notions of “passing” “running” and “not fouling” soon caused them to come a cropper.

Flint Churnblade was fouling left and right, the Zeus’s Doomroller was an unholy nightmare to deal with, and Boomer Eziasson was tossing bombs right and left, although he needs to throw a little higher methinks as twice his opponent managed to grab the explosives and return them to him. It was such a filthy first half from the Beards that by the end of it, the Refs flat out said that they’d used up all of their bribery funds in that first half, and there wasn’t enough to make them look the other way over all of their obvious cheating and that it was the Dreadnaughts turn to make blatant breaches of the fair-play booklet.

Nevertheless, in the second half they couldn’t quite get the distance they needed, and horror of horrors they broke their own cage in an attempt to score and quite rightly the Beards punished them, got the ball, and scored instead.

Hopefully this sobering experience for the DN’s will see them going back to their more traditional and tried and tested game plans.


South Division

Har Ganeth Vipers (0) 1 vs 3 (1) Liz ‘n’ Let Die

Liz and Let Die showed a much better performance compared to their last game against fellow scalies Lustria Locomotiv. This was their opponents first game of the season and I guess the Lizzies wanted to make sure they got a ‘warm’ welcome. The elves took a light drubbing in the first half, but sadly nothing permanent. They then rallied back and turned the second half into a back and forth scoring bonanza but LnLD managed to ride the tiger and come out on top.

Lokomotiv Lustria BBFC (1) 2 vs 0 (0) Themysciran Thunderers

It’s was a good round for Chainsaw weilding maniacs this week, with Wilhelm Chaney flailing around in this game, murdering and savaging and Flint Churnblade over in the Dreadnaut Vs Beards game hacking and fouling everywhere. The Thunderers struggled this game to break armour and paid for it as Locomotiv continued their hot streak and rampaged to a resounding win.

Season 14 – Week 1 – Winter Has Come!

The Winter Season is upon us, same as it ever was, although with somewhat less teams than usual. Whatever, makes it easier for me anyhow. Let’s get some match reports done so I can f- off down the pub.


North Division

Barack Varr Dreadnauts 2 (0) – 0 (2) The Bloated Bile Blitzers

There are three teams I reckon could take the cup this year, and the Dreadnauts, after the summer season are absolutely one of them. The Blitzers are fine lads and there’s nothing I like more than to see a team willing to just have a scrap in the midfield don’t get me wrong, but I just think they need one more seasons worth of experience before they become contenders.

The DN’s seemed to be in fine form this game, in fact, if anything they seemed a bit over-eager. Postgame their Coach indicated he wasn’t happy with the amount of speed and pace he was seeing from the team.

“At one point I swear one of them was thinking about making a pass! A PASS! They’ve gotten cocky and it’ll all come to fire and damnation soon enough. This sort of showboating has no place in a team of mine!” he is quoted as saying.

*Original Working title: Game I could actually be arsed to watch.

Beards of Zeus 1 (3) – 3 (0) Gaen Vale Stags

Well, the Stags sadly seems to have finally got into their groove, hammering this new Dwarf team 3-1. The Beards did some traditional hammering of their own for sure, but as they say in Blood Bowl “You only need 3 Elves to win a game”. But what these new stunties lack in ability they make up for in spite and viciousness, it’s just a shame that the Ref hadn’t been sufficiently bribed this game for them to get away with a turn 16 foul. Better luck next time lads!


South Division

Liz \’n\’ Let Die 0 (0) – 2 (1) Lokomotiv Lustria BBFC

It does me a power of good to see Loco’s coach back in the league, his propensity for getting away with the ridiculous always made for great games to watch. This 2-0 drubbing marks an excellent start for his return season. After the game, the other coach admitted that he’d failed the pre-season rituals and thus was now suffering under the curse: the Un-pain of Ted-Moh-Dells. Shocking! In this day and age too, in a modern league! I know the schedules been a bit more hectic this year than usual, but sure this is no excuse! Hopefully the curse will be lifted before the end of the season.

DC Marvels 0 (0) – 3 (2) Themysciran Thunderers

Are the DC Marvels an Elf team, or are they just humans wearing false ears? I think the results pretty much speak for themselves. Time will tell if this identity confused team can actually PLAY like elves at some point, but until then, this was the Thunderers (another of my league topper picks) game to lose. And.. well… they just didn’t. They didn’t in emphatic form. I don’t know how more clearly this team could have not lost… well no, that’s a lie, we all remember the infamous 7-0 Warpstone Wanderers drubbing of Team Chaos in 2518. But that wasn’t a game it was an experiment in taking the piss.


So, that’s the first round of games, next week expect Norsca Wild Fire (my third top-pick) and the Har-Ganeth Vipers to have games. For anyone who’s putting any stock in my predictions however, let me remind you that I haven’t gotten a single one of these things right yet, and I doubt I’ll be starting now. In the Stags are actually managing not trip over their own arses all the time now then they could well be the dark horse of the season.

Season 14 – Week 4 – End of the Line!

Here we are, final round, it’s been a competition of surprises for sure, and of people wilfully making sure none of my betting slips come up. Don’t think I don’t notice you rizzoles doing this. (Begins grumbling in earnest, is then directed back to match reports). Right, last round, let see what we got then!

Barack Varr Dreadnauts 2 (4) – 0 (0) Norsca Wild Fire

The pundits were all backing Norse to win this game, and some fool told the Dwarves. The resultant carnage would have made even a Khornate team flinch and go “Steady on lads”. Nothing could stop them in the first half, dispatching player after player, not Zara, not Wilhelm Chaney, and the Death Roller wasn’t even on the pitch yet!

And they just kept going in the second half, until the Norse managed to tackle the Deathroller as it was trundling along, leaving the ball uncovered. But the fury and carnage was too much, the Norse must have been too intimidated, as nerves got the better of the players again and again.

There were opportunities to be had, but in the end they couldn’t capitalise on them, 2-0 to the Dreadnauts and a resounding tournament victory for the Dwarves.

The Tlaqua Spacehoppers 2 (4) – 0 (3) Bridgetown Bantams

We managed to get a quote from the Halfling team mid game here, lemme see if I can find it (rustling of various pieces of paper) ah, here it is:

“One day I dream of getting the ball into the other half”

…yeah. At one point those frogs actually managed to cleanly separate the entire Halfling part of the team from the Treemen part of it, and there was a LOT of Treeman in this game.

It seems like after multiple years, the Spacehoppers have finally found their groove, and thanks to that, they managed to secure third place in the tournament and more silverware for this, the only Slaan team with any.

Themysciran Thunderers 2 (2) – 1 (2) The Bloated Bile Blitzers

The Bile Blitzers’ lone pestigor continues to the be the only player who realises this is (allegedly, I don’t believe it either) a ball sport, and he’s beginning to get really good at it. However unlike the ‘flings of the last round, these amazons weren’t going to be intimidated by the beast, and they dragged it down and fouled it off the pitch.

For a moment glory loomed for the Blitzers but at that last moment, the ball carrier tripped over his own fetid toes, and the tide turned.

Rallying back, the Thunderers mounted the charge and scored twice in the second half, coming back from being one behind in the first half for a 2-1 win, and to beat off [ooh er missus – ed] the Blitzers for the 2nd place finish.

Akumal City Rainmakers 1 (0) – 2 (2) Gaen Vale Stags

A tight game were nothing noteworth happened. EXACTLY what the Elves have been waiting for, and they must be praising Nuffle for that.

The elves for once proved all of their detractors wrong and actually managed to outscore their opponents, denying the Rainmakers 3rd place. But whether this last spurt of performance is enough for us to ever see them again only time will tell.

Hobbiton Gardeners 3 (3) – 0 (0) Pastafarian Juniaz

Confidentially, I don’t think these Jr division players for the Pastafarians are going to be seen again in this league. I mean, those three that the Troll ate this game wont be for a start.

…and if you need more of a match report after being told that then clearly you are not a fan of blood bowl.

Season 14 – Week 3 – Heat is on!

Another report fresh off the press from JoJo for the third round matches!

Gaen Vale Stags vs Norsca Wild Fire

Something seems to be going very wrong for the elves in this competition, they just can’t seem to catch a break. This is of course hilarious. It just goes to show, sometimes the best team on paper isn’t the best team on the day. Basically, if it could go wrong today, it did go wrong. Did the Norse slip something untoward into their pre-match and half-time beverages? And if so, where can I get some? Or alternatively, did the Stags get all of their gear by stealing it from a gypsy witch living at a crossroads who vowed revenge upon them? SOMETHING like this is going on here, and I promise you all I will not rest until I have gotten to the bottom of this… and found out if I can replicate it.

The Bloated Bile Blitzers vs Bridgetown Bantams

The Blitzers Beast of Nurgle proved too horrifying for even these half-sized heroes to have a go at, and with it’s writhing tentacles and foul appearance it managed to pin them down long enough for the Pestigor to score. With their advantage secured the Bile Blitzers then shut things down for the rest of the game, which against a more aerodynamic team than most can be a difficult thing to do, so credit where it’s due to the Blitzers for managing it.

Akumal City Rainmakers vs Pastafarian Juniaz

Both teams seem to be playing better in the third round, the Juniaz managing not to suffer a cavalcade of targeted fouls in the first few seconds of the game, and the frogs getting in an early lead. However, even with them on the pitch the “special” players of the Juniaz side couldn’t seem to make the impact they needed, and in the second half the Rainmakers secured their lead with a second TD and a swift boot to the head of the Doomdiver. The first win for a Frog team this year.

The Tlaqua Spacehoppers vs Hobbiton Gardeners

Sometimes you have to admire the perserverance of fans when they smuggle in the parts for a trebuchet and build it right there on the stands like the Spacehoppers did this week. With Zara splattered in the opening seconds of the game things were looking up for these frogs. But then the Halflings got angry, and you wouldn’t like them when they’re angry. Violence led to touchdowns, and their froggy opponents fled from these pint-sized berserkers, luckily however they fled in the right direction and whilst holding the ball. Both frogs teams finally managing to pick up their first wins in this round, and with the right results they could still end up 2nd or 3rd.

Themysciran Thunderers vs Barack Varr Dreadnauts

A game marred by complaints from the Dwarf team that their punching gloves had been tampered with and replaced with foam pads. In truth, most of these complaints seem to stem from the fact that they had already done this to their opponents this round and they seemed most aggrieved over the lack of orginality and creativity. Then both sides took those plates off in the second half and things got a bit unpleasant. For the Amazons. Although it has to be said that the Thunderers ballsy attacks on the Deathroller actually working did endear many a casual fan to their cause. Easily the closest game these Dwarves have had all competition, and even they were forced to grudgingly admit that if the Thunderers receiver hadn’t managed to somehow punch himself in the face when attempting to brush off his man-marker for a catch then this game could have EASILY ended in a draw.

See you in the final round!

Season 14 – Week 2 – Moving Forward!

(Jojo is back with another round up of the weeks matches. All his views are his own!)

The Bloated Bile Blitzers 0 (0) – 1 (3) Barack Varr Dreadnauts

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!”

The second half saw the Dwarves hunker down for their trademark upcountry grind. Their pestilent opponents made a good impression of a wall, but it is a known fact that knocking down walls with your head is a beloved Dwarf pastime. So in the end the Dwarves broke through to score a single winning TD in a textbook example of the classic 1-0 grind that bashy teams, and Dwarves in particular are known for.

Gaen Vale Stags 1 (1) – 2 (4) Themysciran Thunderers

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.

Akumal City Rainmakers 2 (1) – 2 (0) The Tlaqua Spacehoppers

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.

Bridgetown Bantams 1 (5) – 0 (0) Pastafarian Juniaz

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.

Hobbiton Gardeners 0 (1) – 3 (2) Norsca Wild Fire

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).

HDWSBBL - Did You Know

Revenge

Christian Eagle of the Loren Rangers has made it his lifelong ambition to kill RSV Ogre Bowel-Gusher in honer of his father. Bowel Gusher killed Nenvik Eagle in the opening round of the Championship I. This ambition was never fulfilled as he was killed off by an Ogre no less, an end to a very ambitious player who was hungry for revenge.
