Blood Bowl 3

Recommended Posts

Personally, I'd love to try to crowdsource-bastardize a 'human-like' AI by just copying what thousands of people have done in BB2 replays... You don't have to train a proper machine intelligence, if you can just find a similar situation (from within desired skill level) to mimic.

 

Would be fascinating to set up the similarity rules, and have realtime simulations running on how each change affects the handling of sample scenarios.

I'm guessing if you write a machine learning AI that's awesome beating a particular game it's actually very difficult to scale it back so that it doesn't just repeatedly humiliate its human opponents. Basically, teaching it to act human is harder than teaching it to act superhuman. lol

 

Of course, even a superhuman AI would be at the mercy of Nuffle, so there's that small consolation.

What if the AI somehow outsmarts Nuffle and they merge to form some sort of AI God of Dice.

 

We're all doomed... .

*Literally every roll is a 1 and the player stumbles forward, taking an Armour Break and Injury roll for every failed action before the Turnover finally happens*

 but if literally every roll is a 1, there can be no Armor Break let alone an injury...

 

really bad programming

What's up with you today, being all snippy-snappy with me?

Interestiiiing and good points by Juriel. I think MB+Claw should get the same nerf fouling got ages ago: Stop awarding SPP from the use of MB+Claw.

Not gaining SPP from fouling is actually beneficial to the fouler, since cheap dirty players are best traded for high value targets. That doesn’t work so well if foulers gain extra skills.

I think getting Touch Down should not give Spp. You got point and more likely will win. You don't need to have Spp ;)

I mean does it even matter? BB2 is running fine, OCC has a stable membership and overall the game seems to be rather healthy. See no reason for a BB3 being necessary at the moment.

As one of the most reluctant adopters of BB2, I agree entirely.

While I don't need BB3 on PC right now I would be delighted to see new miniature box with new revised rules.

BB3 only matters if it's a big improvement over BB2; significantly more powerful league management tools (including fiddling with the ruleset), better UI, more customisation, Steam workshop, etc.

 

But how likely is that to be the case?

The one big relevant for me would be the Piling On change! But that is only because I am a dirty wood elf player and would love to see the nerf to bash in game!:D

I am totally ok playing BB2 on PC. But I cant wait for new miniatures/teams/positionals.
While I enjoy playing BB (if you may say about such random game) its without many changes for so damn many years.

I would like to see some damn changes.

I'm okay with the BB2 client as well.  I'm more eager for knowing the future plans for BB as it mostly pertains to the online world.  There's nothing known to stop us from continuing to use the BB2 servers for many years to come; though I would like to know there is something in development.

Rule changes that deal with eternal leagues like this so all tier 1 and 2 teams become viable would be most welcome. :gutted:Four wights for undead or bust.....
 

oh and make fouling great again..


or just make undead the best team at any tv I don’t care..

What I heard: (boardgame rules - and I assume this means BB3 too)

 

New boardgame rules are very close - but perhaps virally delayed.

PO is gone.

All new TV limiting mechanisms. (Banning PO will lead to 3K TV elves at the top!)
