Well I played my first two matches of the season and learned even though my dice luck has improved it seems it won't matter too much. My first match was against an Orc team Prognosis Negative and it went about as well as playing Norse against Orcs. By the end of the game the coach had inflicted 5 casualties including 2 deaths. I lost a Linedwarf and a Blitzer. Now this is the worst set back I have ever experienced starting a new team in a league setting. My worst set back being losing my entire human team to injury in preseason play and having to restart. I did not buy a Apothecary because I figured my AV 9 would give me more milage before injuries happend. I figured the worst would be a serious injury. While I rolled rather well for hitting I never got above a KO on the Injury table. I was dumb struck at the loses. Prognosis Negative ended up winning the game at 3 to 1; I also roled crap for winnings receiving only 20K.
My second match was against Grudge Match, an Underworld team. I was so thankful for this match-up after my loses. I figured that even if the underworld team managed to score some TD's I would make up for by putting the hurt on some goblins. As I have played an Underworld team before I knew what they were capable of. My defensive set up went well I think it was my dice rolling that let me down and ended up in a 1 nothing game after a few turns. Shortly after that I managed to pound the Goblins and some Skaven off the pitch and score some TD's. It turned out to be a good game for me making up for the horrible game 1 and I aquired 70K in money. A journeyman Linedwarf managed a casualty so I bought him instead of a Blitzer leaving me with 20K and I hope to earn enough for a Apothecary next match or if I can get lucky a Blitzer.
Endycarus , coach of Grudge Match, took his loss with grace. Had it been me I would have been visably sore but still managing a thankyou for the game. Then I would go off and brood like a teenaged vampire. I hate it when the bad luck comes down hard but sometimes that is just material for good gaming stories. I like Bloodbowl even though I lose about 60% of my games and I will continue to like it for a long time. Its fun even when it hurts.
