How Are Your Vamp Teams Doing?

Yeah that was a bit of a frustrating game on both sides I think.  In fact most of my games have been this season!  Quite a change from last season where I had a chance of getting a clean sweep, so far I've only managed one win! 

 

I'm back down to 5 vamps now as well after my continued GFI failings in the last game, it was a bit unnecessary but still you don't expect to roll 1,1, armour break, injury, injury roll dead, apoth dead, regen fail... but these things happen.  At least it was my newbie vamp (2 skills).  I'm going to probably keep 5 vamps for a while now and see how that goes.

 

I may get a concession this week, which is unfortunate but keeps my players away from a killer team for another week.  Looks like I'll be going down to div1 again unless loads of people drop out!

Yeah, I went from "I'm taking a lead into the second half" to "I'm going to lose" and then "Nuffle hates him, I am going to win!" and finally "...I didn't think he could throw that far..."

 

I have had 5 the entire season but they are very skilled.  the worst is +MA and tackle.  

 

You have a good chance of staying up if I win this week.  

 

So... advice.   I play an elf team of some sort with 8 dodge pieces.  I have 3 tackle but a sidestep vamp leveled.  I play chaos with no dodge the next week and then AG3 with a little dodge to finish things.  I was thinking tackle or diving tackle. or?

First loss of the season.  Things look grim unless I get help and one of our coaches is giving free wins right now as he can't play.  I had a lot of shots on the ball and a lot of ones.  Today was a day of nuffle telling me to fuck of with turn ending 1/36s. 

 

Sadness. Such is the way of BloodBowl, and yet its always a total vibekiller!    Even worse that it was that team... yuck.  Your next game might not be too bad as 2 key killers are out and he's only got one tackle piece.  Altho quite some inducments. He only knows one way to play so unless he gets lucky that should be ok.  He then gets his killer pieces back for the dark elf team...and Brets dont have it so easy either - it's definitely not over yet!!

 

Back in the nooby waters, my lot won 3-0 over a beaten up Orc team, who played it as well as could be expected.  I still probably need 2 more wins to clinch it unless those damned dorfs start dropping points.  The final game is against a quite well levelled up killer Orc team which is going to be rough... :>  Still 6-0-1 so far this season so I should take one of the top 2 spots....

Nice to know some of his killers are out. Unfortunately he's got nine more.  I'm sure it'll be a fun game

 

Brets get a free win this week as the nurgle are not playing

 

Oh, and grabs on you keeping winning. Soon there'll be three of us up here. My MD8 opponent loves playing vampires

He only knows one way to play...and it's pretty basic.  Lovely to see his TV dropped horrifically from the 2K it was though.... My dwarfs last match was vs that monstrosity and we managed a draw (I think) and actually fared pretty well... :>  'Jesus' took a nice AV bust now also which will hopefully limit its life....

Try to make a lasting impression, I'm sure he'll love your AG5 running rings around his PO-ers lol

Good luck!

Decent job by the vamps again today!  2-0 over the rats.  Did lose a wrestler thrall but we'll take it.

 

So we win the div and can 'rest' or go easy verse a killer Orc team.  Woo!

 

Woo!

Nice one, so in the champs? At least it looks like two will be on there. I doubt I can stay, although I managed a win against necro top of the division. No need to thank me @Kjelstad;)! I like that the top is quite close this season. 

 

I had a good game and there were a few swingy turns but bloodlust behaved itself mostly and even pro came through on the important stuff.

Congraaaaats!!! Never doubted you ;) Well played mate!!

Now your next challenge should you chose to accept it, is to roll a stat increase on your next level up.

MD9 brought with it plenty of pain and a crazy number of bloodlusts and other fails, which given the luck I've had this season is tolerable.  He still only just scraped a 2-2, so we finished 7-1-1

 

We do have 2 MNG Vamps...so only 3 for the next match.  I didn't like playing with 3...

 

So I probably won't make a decision on my 2 skillups or whether to buy a 6th vamp until the new seasons are posted.

 

Given  I've had no stat increases on anything so far, do I begin to recycle vamps ?  I'd expect they'll all get the blodge/sidestep so nothing really dramatic yet. Even without the stat boosts they're fun to play but I suspect to really make any progress in the upper tiers I'm going to need that edge. 

 

I haven't yet got the stadium enhancement (have upgraded it lvl 2) and am planning on the one that kills the rocks/get the ref KO results.

 

Thoughts, sacrificial offerings and all the usual stuff welcomed.  Also good luck @Kjelstadon the last week...if you beat the Bretts, and the necro/dark elf team dont win you're still in with a shout...unlikely but it aint over yet, and the other two have tough games too...

Putting on the vamp boots again next season. 

How is it looking up there? 

I’m sure you’re aware there probably isn’t enough time left with BB2 to get far with a new vampire team. Just as well you’ve already done everything.

I knew you couldn't stick with those pansie elves for long!  welcome back to extreme risk extreme reward play with no stalling!!   

 

Looks like I'll be going back to dev 1, shocking final game that felt like I could have won if nuffle was being kind.  Multiple ball carrier blitz fails, lust fails at the worst times and constant removals.  You could say a pretty standard game!!

I'm aware,  I'm aware, I'm aware

so many of those games.  a 1/36 cost me last game.  well a few 1/36 did, but one truly lost the game.  

 

But then there are the games where you think, "I can do anything I want..."

I see @Kjelstadhas taken option 3. Respect for a magnificent run, winning the title and taking the defence all the way to the final match.

 

Mad respect. I watched a few turns of todays match... double skull, double snake eye dodge, triple bloodlust fail.... yeah...ugh !  

 

A champion of the OCC is forever tho!  Congrats on a fabulous team and some super games!!!
