So come on then, let's get this up and running - after having the best record in 2011 and 2013 (we didn't record 2012), mainly because of my BB tournament results I fully expect at least Oli to powergame his way to the top of the tree, mainly by briniging in new games for people to lose at. ;)


My gaming year starts this weekend at the Welsh Open, so if you get your results in now you can have an early lead! :lol:

So far this year I am 0-0-1!

I'm guessing board games don't count? Otherwise it'd be a lot worse!

I'm trying to remember if i've ever actually won a game...

I'll try it this year.

So far 3-2-12

Won - Dreadball (2), Blood Bowl (3)

Lost - Dreadball (9), Bolt Action (1), Deadzone (1), Blood Bowl (2)

Draw - Blood Bowl (2)

I'm going to keep track of the game names so next year I know which ones I'm shit at and can avoid playing! ;)

Dreadball tonight.


Lost first game vs Pass, Sirens vs#Corparation. Final score 1-0. Very close, and good have gone either way. Did manage to get one of Pass's Guards sent off for 3 turns via Pass Interference though (thanks Gary for finding that one!)


2nd game won 8-0(!) Sirens vs Dave's Forge Fathers. As visitors scored 2nd 4-pointer on turn 4!


Last game Veermyn vs Dave Forge again, and again a blow-out, though the 5+ skill makes them hard work. Dave's still looking for the way to play the Forge.


Currently 3/3/3

First game of the year is Dreadball, my nameless vs Oli and his zeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees, I've found the rule that suits me to a tee. Foul! I can naturally roll 2's and3's so no one is safe. Maybe I should take the asterians? Anyway I score first 1,0, Oli returns the favour 0,2, and I last turn for 1,0, win.


Gary. 1-0-0


Win; Dreadball-1,

Loss; None :)


Time to retire I think

Simon, I read some stuff about them on the interweb last night and Forge vs Vermyn is apprently a tough match up for the stunty ones. I have now read some guides/tactica and despite some (many!) disparaging views I have decided to stick with the FF.....

Updated my original post with new stats.

Well that winning streak was short and sweet. Played Oli at bloodbowl, necro vs amazons. Lost 1-0, highlights; didn't roll a single skull, (though lots of both downs) damaged two, one block and one sending off foul, suffered against an opportune use of wrestle and second half was Tzeentch bowl!


Gary 1-0-1


Win; Dreadball 1,

Loss; Bloodbowl 1,

Keeping the ship level. Replayed Oli again in first DB league and same score in last minute. Deja vu.

Then friendly exhibition match against Mikes confederation and lost by the full seven. Did kill two strikers and was targeting third though. A name has formed and please welcome The..Purple...People....Eaters.


Gary. 2-0-2


Win; Dreadball 2.

Loss; Bloodbowl 1,Dreadball 1.

So after destroying Pass's team (4 players dead) and ending up 5 up (mainly because he didn't have any players left to stop me) and then losing against Ray (by 2 points, and the fact that I couldn't roll 5's) I'm now at:

Win; Dreadball 1

Loss; Dreadball 1, DZ Commander 1.

I'm hopeful for next week though!

Played Ray in an Exhibition match (have to wait for my league match) and won by 3 in a very close game.  Scored the winner in my last turn, leaving Ray needing a 3 or 4 point strike in the last turn, but his Gobbos couldn't make the catch (mainly because my Strikers actually rolled well for dodging).


Simon 4/3/3

Win: Dreadball x3, Blood Bowl x1

Draw: Blood Bowl x3

Loss: Dreadball x1, Blood Bowl x2

3 games tonight, two 75pt Staw Wars vs Mark, DB vs Mike.


First game of SW was a drubbing in Mark's favour - I didn't manage to destroy a single Tie in the game.  Reversed the sides, and pulled off a win but only with two Ties left.  So 1-1, but a moral victory for Mark.

DB against Mike, and a very close game.  Mike only started with 5 players so Digby gave him a Judwan Striker.  Mike was home and went 3-0 up on the first rush.  I took players off the field, had him down to tow players at one point, but no deaths and managed to score a 2 pointer, but then kept coughing up pocession while Mike increased his score by 1 or 2 a turn.  Managed to knock the score back a bit, but started to run out of players on the field and needed the actions each turn so couldn't bring on any subs.  A lucky "Ball Shatters" card stopped Mike trying a game-winning score, and after a lucky 3-turn injury gave me a second coaching dice managed to steal the win with a 4-pointer in the final turn for a 1-0 victory.

 

Simon 6/3/4

Win: Dreadball x4, Blood Bowl x1, Star Wars x1

Draw: Blood Bowl x3

Loss: Dreadball x1, Blood Bowl x2, Star Wars x1
