Match Day 2 of the 2012 Spring Season has begun! Along with this new Match Day comes updates to the posted schedule and the schedule rules and requirements which all coaches should review. For this Match Day we have Hampton Roads Mightiest vs The Accounting Department, The Fanciest of Pants vs The Iron Curtain, and The Ghent Crush vs. the Blood Runs Reds. This promises to be another exciting week as our teams are just starting to work on their tactics and teamplay.
Also tune in to Twitch.tv 8PM on Monday to watch Hampton Roads Mightiest vs The Accounting Department live!
Currently Match Day 1 of the BASH Spring 2013 Season is Underway. Normally this is the part where you’d be scrambling to get all your matches done in a week. Well, not so fast. So we can get everyone acclimated to the new Blood Bowl Platofrm this Match Day is scheduled to go on until the 18th. It’s also a test to see if the new platform will force matches to be played or not, or how exactly that will work. Since the commissioner can’t be 100% sure that unplayed matches will just get dropped, I’d advise anyone who wants to be extra-safe to get their matches finished before the 13th. Match Day 1 currently has The Ghent Crush against Hampton Roads Mightiest, The Fanciest of Pants vs. Overlord Dane, The Iron Curtain vs. Blood Runs Reds, and The Accounting Department vs. The Twilight Sparklers. Good luck to everyone in the new season. For future Match Days check the Current Schedule for that information. A calendar will be added to the schedule as soon as the commissioner can determine how the Blood Bowl Platform will handle this little schedule change-up.
Starting this season BASH is transitioning to the Cyanide Blood Bowl platform. The reasons for this have been many but chief among these have been a general lack of satisfaction with the OBBLM tool specifically in the area of match reporting and updates, and a desire to stay up to date with the current edition of Blood Bowl. This transition requires a number of changes for our coaches. First of all teams from OBBLM can not be imported to the new platform. This means that there will be a necessary team wipe. All matches need to be done online through the Blood Bowl internet leagues option, and all players need to have accounts for Cyanide’s Blood Bowl internet leagues. In addition there are some more restrictions placed on us in this format than in OBBLM. The rewards for the Cup have been changed to a gold reward for the winner and loser of the cup match, and a requirement for even number teams requires the commissioner to field a second team in case of odds. As a result of this change a lot of the policy and procedure written on the site is no longer valid currently and will need to be re-written. Also once the league starts we’re locked in and can’t add a new team without removing an old one. The new league platform allows for easy match reporting and stats for the league in the game. It’s fully compatible with all features of Blood Bowl, the match reporting should be more accurate overall and most importantly requires no interaction from the player.
So how do you go about getting on the new league platform? Well first of all you will need to open multiplayer and internet leagues from the main screen.
From there you will need either log into your exisiting account or create a new account. Creating a new account requires the player key you received when you purchased your copy of Blood Bowl. You will need to email me at email@example.com with your coach name on this service so I know who you are in the new system.
After you have logged in you will be taken to the league main screen. From here your next step is to create a team using the create team button. Your team will have to be created in game. It’s recommended that you plan your team out ahead of time because if it’s like single player you can’t refund a player after they’re pruchased.
Once you have your team created your next step is to apply for the league. Click on the leagues button and choose the league finder. Look for league name “BASH” and Manager “Furluge” and the league will come right up. Apply for the league and enter the password given to you when you emailed the commissioner with your new online name. Choose the new team you created as your team for the league and you’re all set.
Today the Fall 2012 Season of BASH comes to a close. It’s been a season of ups and downs, stunning upsets, and a display on on the pitch brutality. Many star players have given their lives on the pitch, making way for new up and coming rookies to take their place among the stars of the game. But at the end of the day, it’s all about the teams, and how they did. And once again the Dismal Swampers lead by Dennis Harrison have shown their consummate superiority out on the pitch once again, winning 7 out of 8 games played. They’re followed by the Mainie-iacs. A team that can move the ball, and hit, but with a small mistake crumples entirely and often leaves the pitch early! Behind them comes the Plagueborn, a team that is really coming into its own now, but for all of it’s skill just can’t seem to get the ball into the endzone with their slower, plodding players.
From the commissioner, thank you to everyone who participated this season, and good luck to those moving onto the Cup.
