Blood Bowl 2 World Cup Qualifiers

Post by Nubs11 »

Hi all

Ausbowl is a little quiet so I thought I'd use it as a chance to promote my Youtube :P

A couple of us have been playing in the Blood Bowl 2 WOrld Cup Qualifiers with the BBLANZ fellas.

If you want to check out any of the games I've played so far, check them out here:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... jMoj27wtZU

I'll hopefully be posting all of the games (except for Round Five, I'll have to make a round up video for that one) along with some other Blood Bowl 2 games that I've played. It would be great if people could subscribe and spread the word if it is something they'd like to see more of as well :)

Follow up question: is there any links to the details on the World Cu and the OCE Qualifying leagues? :)

Thanks mate :)

I think the slow looking interface is more user error than anything else. I know you can do some other things (have skill icons display, have names of players display etc) but I don't do any of that haha.

This is the link that was used for the sign ups. I didn't actually find it, I think Dazed/Greyasquirrel put me on to it from memory.

You could qualify through their open ladder as well. But I imagine that would take a lot of games/I don't know if it's still open.

For those who can't be bothered searching through the above link. A quick summary;

40 teams in the Oceania qualifier, starting at 1000TV with progression, divided randomly into 4 groups. 9 match round robin season with the top 4 from each group progressing to a single elimination 16 team play off.

The winner of the Oceania qualifier joins 63 others from around the world in a 64 team single elimination knock out tournament. This will be with new teams on a non-progression basis.

I think its a bit better, if nothing else the game is much more stable which is the biggest issue I had with the original.

Why is that? Pressing Ctrl 3 times turns on grids and skill markers for gained skills only which pretty much replaces fumbbl's ability to mark players.

I had been meaning to keep this more updated but it didn't happen.

We are coming to the end of the Group stage now. An update on Ausbowl coaches;

Jonno finished 5 wins, 4 losses but a R8 loss cost him and he just missed the play offs.
Squirrel has some early losses and was out of contention with a couple of rounds to go.
Nubs11 has to play his R9 match. Win and he is in the playoffs, lose and he is out.
I have my R9 game to play but am in the play offs. However my team is beaten up and I'm not overly confident from here.

Not sure if there were others?

Seems a weird breakdown for a TV1000 progression event.

They are a little weird online.

They are especially weird about not trying to progress their teams. You are in a group of 10, 9 rounds then single elimination knock out phase. Top 4 qualify for the play offs. If you were doing well, wouldn't you be trying to run up the score to progress your teams for the play offs?

Apparently not. The number of games where teams coached by superior coaches won 1-0. Or games where Woodies with massive player advantage stalled for a 2-1. Jut crazy in my book.

Some people learn the "stall" and listen to 'gurus' online who state that it is the ONLY way to play.

I'd imagine they are fairly prosaic as well with skill choices for a similar reason.

Once the 16 teams are set for the play offs ill do some analysis of TVs and skills. Should be interesting.

Stalling with Woodies while in a dominant player positions just makes my toes curl. It's a terrible terrible thing.

Ok, yes i promised an update but my last group game disgusted me so much I lost a little interest.

Anyway, Liam won his last game and made the top 16 play-off. I had qualified a round earlier.

16 teams that qualified (with coaches of note);

Necro
Dwarf
Wood Elf
Orc
Orc (Coaches by Yasmirr who finished top 3 or 4 at Eucbowl last year with Orcs)
Chaos
Orc
Undead
Wood Elf
Dwarf
Orc (Sandune who captained NZ North at ASC last year)
Norse
Skaven
Wood Elf (me)
Necro
Undead (Nubs11)

Now we have a single elimination Top 16 play off.

3 games in we have had a Wood Elf, Dwarf and Orc team progress at the expense of Necro, Undead and Wood Elf respectively.

Liam and I are yet to play.
