  1. Hey, there was a time my Nurgle team - yes, Nurgle, with cheap rotters and all that fancy regeneration going on - could only field eight players. You are correct in that the team will never improve if you give up, but if you stick at it you’ll feel you’ve earned every upgrade. Admittedly this process can take years.
  2. Hello, new Khemri. Welcome to the wonderful world of turnovers on three die blocks.
  3. As for @Kristofer_B, orcs are a race built around fundamentals and positioning. And Guard. Don’t be seduced by Mighty Blow unless you have Guard. Visit the toilet? That shit you just dropped better have Guard. Guard, Guard, Guard.
  4. Cheers Barry. I remember when you came within a bawhair of championship glory. We’ve had some good chats too.
  5. Did you actually read my post?
  6. This league IS difficult. And if your only interest in Blood Bowl is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of their women you’re not gonna last. In internet terms the OCC is dinosaur old and has seen thousands of participants come and go. The most common reasons for leaving involve losing matches. I’ve been here 13 years and my win rate is comically low. So why stay? Community! I have established real and lasting friendships with people here which have seen me travel around Europe and form connections with others even further afield. If I just wanted to play an online BB match with a total stranger I could do that right now, but that totally defeats the point of being in a league where you can develop rivalries, collaborate on projects such as being part of an admin team, and so many other things. So don’t lose heart just because you couldn’t win a match if your life depended on it, that’s just a small part of what OCC has to offer.
  7. One match down in S25 and Eddie is no more. I almost feel bad.
  8. So turn 1 of your first match?
  9. I know you were a bit disappointed not to play in MD9, but hey. Free money and nobody got killed.
  10. Absolute nightmare of a player, that one!
  11. It’s a bit more scholarly, unlike a lot of the panel shows I listen to on Audible the guests are almost exclusively academics rather than a mix of academics and entertainers as featured on the likes of The Museum of Curiosity or The Infinite Monkey Cage. If you’re after infotainment I’d recommend those before this one. Curiosity is a spinoff of TV show Qi so focuses more on general trivia whereas Monkey Cage places the emphasis on popular science.
  12. That was @Barristan, not me. But on Audible I’ve just started What If?, which is a radio series looking at what might have happened if historical events played out differently. The first few episodes look at Nazi conquest of the Soviet Union, if JFK’s assassination had failed, and if Scotland had voted for devolution in 1979 rather than 1998.
  13. "It's a four-way shoot out at the top of the Championship, The Elder Children in the box seat to wrap it up on Monday if they can beat the second placed, reigning champs, Motivated Squad.

  14. I think Kislev are a bit like vampires in that you have to live with a bit of bloat in your team value. Your opponents will be more than willing to help you with that problem.
  15. Hi! An exciting opportunity has arisen to either get a fresh team into the league early or play a couple of extra matches. If you currently do not have an active team in OCC but would like to and fancy getting off to an early start, you can join Tier 5 right now and your team can continue to further seasons! PM me if interested, citing Option 1. If you already have a team but feel like playing a couple of extra games for fun and to give opponents matches to play, we’ll be looking at making your teams as close to what they will replace as possible and there is no way to continue past this season. PM me if interested, citing Option 2.
