Taxing league

Postby tuneloon » Tue Feb 12, 2008 9:52 am

Ok, the ends on April 14th, the day before you must file taxes, so I thought this was fairly appropriate, especially considering the list of teams

Austin's Powers 0
Brakgwar's A Theory Tested 0
Brett's Sons of the Creator 0
Ettiene's Bulldozers 0
Evan's Realmreavers 0
Kermit's Green Frogs 0
Shelly's Corrupterz 0
Tuneloon's Boston Bruisers 0

Homelands look pretty weak, which hurts because my team has the most holes to fill. Should be interesting. Good luck everyone!

Other than u have no cash to buy new players Ice ? 8) not yet lets see how Auctions go then ill throw some out if u like .....


but it seems only 4 of us have any real cash to try and pick up new talent. Some of that good talent will cost them all they have for 1-2 player's :shock:

with so many Holes to fill not sure 1 player is gonna be worth the cost but ya never know.


For training 4 overlords have 2-3 across the Board which makes Picking up Orcs with a single Strong skill (but ones and twos else where) much more Appealing for the Cost Vs the big orcs that start in the 20,000 or More range.

Anywho Day 1 bides in two days GL to all on Opening Bides 8)

Well brakky, you managed to spend some real dough on centres

Sneesfenuid 35000 13586 Outbid. (Currently playing for Brakgwar's A Theory Tested )
Ringjurtroop 35000 13270 Outbid. (Currently playing for Brakgwar's A Theory Tested )

Knew you were probably gonna be the only one going big on them since you had a shortage. Hopefully they are worth it :wink:

*Newsflash*......Hold on to your horses folks cause the first games are gonna light up the sky!!!!

Austin's Powers vs. Kermit's Green Frogs
Evan's Realmreavers vs. Shelly's Corrupterz
Tuneloon's Boston Bruisers vs. Brakgwar's A Theory Tested
Ettiene's Bulldozers vs. Brett's Sons of the Creator

Notice the final two matches.....

The only team in these two games not to finish their last season with gold is brak who finish second....

This is only the season opener, but what a way to kick of a season!!!

:idea: Wonder what the TV sponsors would pay to broadcast these games

Good luck for first round all :lol:
41 Championships
15 Second places
8 Third places
Avg Finish: 2.22
Undefeated teams:
Bluebulls 1st, 8th
Domination 4th,5th, 7th
Experimental morons 2nd,8th

Its gonna Be Cash well spent through all my seasons Played, Elites are the hardest on Centers ... last season i was constantly rotating out my Centers from the regen chamber if u noticed 2 of my Centers Started the season Dead but they are all better and in the Lineup.

Actually, my team didn't finish with gold last season, they finished 5th :shock:

But I'm real pleased with my 2-0 start. With the first 3 games against Brak, Ett & Ice, I thought there was a serious shot of starting out 0-3. I'll be curious to see how this half fares against the other half of the league. That, and the fact that Brak could start out 0-3 and would still be favored to make the playoffs.

There had to be some rational explanation on why the score came out the way it did. I figured you were giving scrubs some time to catch up!

Latest update

Brett's Sons of the Creator 71 15-2-0 645 - 302
Ettiene's Bulldozers 61 13-4-0 537 - 318
Tuneloon's Boston Bruisers 50 10-6-1 398 - 390
Austin's Powers 47 10-7-0 332 - 378
Brakgwar's A Theory Tested 38 8-9-0 497 - 315
Evan's Realmreavers 23 5-12-0 412 - 547
Shelly's Corrupterz 19 4-13-0 280 - 521
Kermit's Green Frogs 11 2-14-1 233 - 563

Brak and Austin look to be fighting for the last playoff spot, and it could be close.

Austin finishes the season with back to backs against Ettiene and Brett after losing a pair of close ones to me.

Brak closes out with a pair against Shelly's and Evan's. Brak also looks to have secured any tie-breaker because he has scored over 150 points more than Austin.

I would therefore predict playoffs match-ups as

Brett (1) vs. Brak (4)
Ettiene (2) vs. Tune (3)


Looking towards next season, I've got 60+ K rolled over on 16 orcs (all of which have no canes) for next season, with 30K left in cash.

I only have 8 orcs with canes (4 at -1, and 1 each at -2 thru -5), so this team looks to be in great shape for next season and has a respectable shot at making the finals this season.

Good luck the rest of the way!

Well the finals have arrived and what a thrilling semis it was. Ice predicts right and it was Sons of the creator vs a Theory Tested and the Bulldozers vs the Boston Bruisers.

Both playoffs went down to 3 games with the following scores:

Bulldozers 22-23 Bruisers
Bruisers 23-35 Bulldozers
Bulldozers 34-33 Bruisers

Sons of the Creator 17-16 Theory Tested
Theory Tested 16-13 Sons of the Creator
Sons of the Creator 4-28 Theory Tested

Special mention has to be made for the final game between the Bruisers and Bulldozers. The Bruisers tied the game with 2:51 to go in the final period. 40 seconds later the Bulldozers score to take the lead before the game is saved by Budhtuzit who made two crucial saves in the dying seconds of the game. Good game Tune.

So it has come down to this. The Bulldozers and the Theory Tested and its only fitting as a win for the bulldozers will tie this overlord with probably the most feared Overlord in Orcsports at the top of the standings for overall wins. Good luck for finals Brak. I see the smashers are also doing well so this could potentially give you a two title lead. Let the hurting begin :twisted:
41 Championships
15 Second places
8 Third places
Avg Finish: 2.22
Undefeated teams:
Bluebulls 1st, 8th
Domination 4th,5th, 7th
Experimental morons 2nd,8th

Congrats on making the finals Ett.

After I took game one, I thought I had a chance. Losing game 2 by 12 left me doubtful. But for game 3, I opened up the text file and was keeping track of the score manually as the score bounced back and forth. I thought I had you when I fired in two 3-pointers towards the end of the 3rd, but a one pointer by you and those 2 saves kept me just short.

Now to battle ICE for 3rd.
