  1. Well, end of the regular season, and it looks like we might have snuck through to playoffs on second tiebreaker. Round Score dead even, so went to touchdown differential! Teams final stats for the end of the season look like this: https://imgur.com/a/fMk3pGs Look at my pillow fisted lizards, most blocks fewest cas pfft
  2. Coach name (ingame): Shanba Team name: Les Miseryguts Race: Vampires Returning team, back after taking last season off. Was in tier 4 previously.
  4. Hopefully, at some point all the random deaths we keep suffering will be transmuted into points for us! I'm also very happy to just let Kezrael continue carrying the team.
  5. yooo, congratulations @Kjelstad! Excellent accomplishment.
  6. If you're the chorf coach, that creates some incentives to play REALLY strangely. Could be an interesting one to watch
  7. Miserable season for me again, but at least I signed off for a win. Played the loosest and worst I have all season but dice just decided "yes"... Anyway, need a break - both from the team, so I can step back and re-evaluate, and also just gonna be very busy for a month or so. After that fully intending to pick the vamps back up.
  8. Yeah I think I scuffed the one turn. I wanted to push down the middle since he'd left it open, but I got it wrong somehow, and then the blitzing vamp bloodlusted and I think I messed it up at that point. I'm not sure which turn you mean, but it's very possible I did something dumb at many points that game
  9. Lost 2-0 to dwarves. I had some chances - first drive I had a bare cage presented so I gazed a corner and two diced the ball - got pushes, rerolled, double skulls, kod vamp. A few turns later he accidentally started his turn with a one dice (that he assumed was two), got double skulls and I had another chance. This time all the dice rolled successfully, and I walked away with the ball after rolled a 3+ dodge 3+ pickup 3+ dodge 2+ dodge. Definitely a little lucky there. Unfortunately the subsequent turn I slightly misplaced my screen and left a triple gfi one dice, and he got the pow on reroll, and worse also picked up another KO. By the time the half ended he had chipped off another KO on a vampire and I was left with 1 vamp :/ After failing a one turn attempt, on my drive I then had three vampires. I felt like I still had chances if I could score quickly, given the opportunities I'd had first half. After setting up heavily on the LoS, got hit by a blitz, so mega punished for that. Eventually he threw a three man fireball that KOd another vamp, and I completely lost control of the game from there, so despite him having some questionable dice I couldn't recover. It's been a really frustrating ride these three seasons. I've had more success playing them in CCL. Dunno what's going wrong in the league, it just feels like I'm always struggling uphill against molasses.
  10. First game of the season, a creditable 1-1 draw against high elves. Had a 2d on the ball foiled by a snaked bloodlust on turn 5, then on turn 7 another bloodlust on a sack attempt after rerolling the hypnogaze. This time I rolled with it, powed his blodger, scatter caught and walked the ball to the sideline, where as I'd hoped it scattered out of play! Unfortunately it ended up being a relatively simple recovery, but oh well. OTTD attempt was a bust again, this time due to him having a kicker. My drive ended up being relatively controlled - picked off a couple of elves early - but having set up to play solidly rather than score quickly, and with my opponent playing the delaying game, I let it get rather dicey turn 15-16. But I got my score! Still need development on these guys. Want tackle on ANYONE very badly. Think sidestep was a poor pick on my last level.
  11. Yeah, I just rolled the ag thrall. Had a delay on the levelups because of a non-confirmed match. I'll hold off on the fifth vamp for now.
  12. You know what, I think you're right. If I 'm getting a fifth vamp I want to focus some spp on him to get him vaguely competent (at least to dodge so he can reposition for hypnogazes) and I'd rather pump spp into the other vamps first. I'll hold off for a bit longer.
  13. Won 2-1 against some very broken brets, taking me to 3-1-5 for the season. Improvement, but I'm still disappointed, I think I can do better than that. But next season will be interesting for sure. I've ended the game with 4 level 2 vamps and 210k in the bank - think I'm gonna pick up a fifth vampire for next season. Of course, I can't do that until my opponent actually confirms the game...
  14. Glad to hear the glorious freight train survived!
  15. Had a garbage game. Just cant seem to roll normal bloodlust numbers on this team. It's so hard to win when your whole team has to run out of position all the time.
  16. Played against Zunk today, VOD is on AndyDavo's stream I guess. Turned him over on his drive, but he managed to three turn in reply and then I fucked up my offence horribly and lost. Ah well!
  17. Frustrating one this week. Got hit on my offence by a short kick/blitz against high elves, still had a chance of recovering but then a thrall (stupid thralls) 1/9ed the pickup. The on the re-run attempt, another terrible short kick was compounded by a string of 5/6 failed bloodlusts, including 3 on the turn where I really needed decent dice to make a go of things (that said, I DEFINITELY misplayed that drive, so you know, swings and roundabouts). On his offence I had 2-3 good shots at the ball, but one was ruined by yet another failed bloodlust roll, and the last I knocked the ball down only for another elf to catch it :/ After that I started getting hit with serious attrition - suffered 8 KOs and 4 cas in the match. (Biggest plus - only permanent damage was another ma bust thrall.) Compound that with no cas, failing my vanity attempt and a garbage mvp and it was pretty much a wasted matchweek. Oh well.
  18. I took +ma for the simple reason that I have two +ma vampires and I think it should make two turning a lot easier. Dunno if that makes sense, but I wanted to try it.
  19. Glorious victory, 3-2 over dwarves. Had a bloodlust and a dodge to make it four, as well. I've finally leveled a thrall and rolled 4 6 - thoughts?
  20. I'm just gonna be a good boy and take block I think. No need to reinvent the wheel.
  21. Lost today, not surprisingly given it was vs zons. I hate zons SO much, they are by far my least favourite team to play against. I didn't play super well to compound it, but yeah. Damn. All my opponents for the rest of the season have blodge ball carriers, and I still have zero levels on thralls, and no prospect of picking up wrackle any time soon. Is it a really bad idea to take wrestle on a vampire? I feel like it's a really bad idea, but I'm tilted enough that I'm considering it...
  22. Scraped a draw this week 400TV down against lizards. I threw dice at him on his drive and forced him into a 6+ pass to score, which unfortunately he made. My drive looked very dicey for a while but I eventually stabilised and then scored on turn 15, after which he had another 6+ pass on his two turn to go for the win... thankfully this time he failed it. Chaney was an absolute boss, casing a saurus and KOing another, and also passively removing a skink with his face. Two dead thralls but a six on winnings allows me to refill the bench a bit, and one of em was move bust anyway, so hey, bonus.
  23. Matchweek 1 was a success for me this season, a 2-0 win over necromantic that luckily for me had both wolves MNG. 14/16 dodge vampire did not manage to get a touchdown because he got one dice powed, but again in a stroke of fortune I got mvp on a move up vampire, who now has block to add to his arsenal. I also picked up a third move bust on a thrall - at some point I guess I'll have to start cycling them out, but I'm happy enough carrying them as bench/LoS fodder for now. I get a billion in petty cash against just about the whole division anyway. Next week is against very spooky lizards with approximately infinite mighty blow, so I'm a little apprehensive there, but who knows.
  24. I went 1 1 7! It was miserable. None of my vamp teams in CCL have ever done this badly XD. But I feel like I have a solid looking team, but I was seriously hampered by everyone dying all the time. On the plus side, I got the rubber helmet award!
  25. I saw the match from turn 8 onwards, looked incredibly painful. Sorry man!
