I started playing in the local Blood Bowl league last week. I hadn't played the tabletop version in fourteen months, I'd never played in a proper league setting before, and I'd picked one of the more difficult teams -- vampires -- to master, so what could go wrong?
I didn't get any more pictures after setup as I was too busy being thrashed 3-0.
To be honest, given my lack of recent experience I was expecting such a result and I found out later that day that my opponent was last season's champion, so I think 3-0 is probably quite good.
I have nine more games to play, assuming I don't get into the playoffs, and I think that's a safe assumption. I'll be happy with at least one win but I won't be too concerned if I don't even get that; most of the people I'll be playing are very experienced Blood Bowl coaches and I have to play at least three more elf teams, which tend to be the best in the game.
(Alas I won't be playing Stuart, as he's in a different division and we weren't matched in the inter-division draw.)
I will post as I play, and I hope I can bring you some good news in a future match report.
(I doubt it!)
Final Score: Purple People Eaters 0 - It's Always Sunny 3
