Postby bubbauk » Fri Mar 02, 2007 9:20 am

Brakgwar's Niether Imp's has entered in a novice league that just got created today. My first time facing Brak. Hopefully I can do better than those before me. Thanks, that is all.

I noticed ettiene was the only one i recongized.

Yeah homelands do look a bit dry. I noticed a couple of players though that i managed in one of my other teams. Hopefully i can pick a few of them up as i remember them being pretty good. Will see how first looting round goes. Think its gonna be interesting as i am experimenting a bit as far as bidding goes. I guess only time will tell if it pays of :roll:

I also did well in bidding. Got 16 of my 20 bids and still have over 10k for second round. Lost one big bid to you and another to brakwar but should be able to make up losses in second round of bidding.

Gamluerreo 3116 1596 Outbid. (Currently playing for Bubbauk's huh)
Lurbuvis 2078 1524 Outbid. (Playing for Brakgwar's Niether Imp's)

Should be an interesting second round if some of the other players that didnt bid get in on things. First time i saw so many teams not bidding. Good luck for second round all :wink:

well, at least 1 more team has joined in on the bidding. Got all but 2. Not a bad day. 31/35 orcs and had some money left for armor. Not good armor, but armor. well see what happens. Good luck!

What a way to start the season. First game against Brakwar. Hoping to set the benchmark for the rest of the season. Who knows maybe we can start and finish the season against each other providing my team keeps up the pace. Think my team is looking good for tonight, but who knows when facing brak. At least i have quite a bit of armor. Entire first line are in leather except defense and everyone else in padded. Good luck for first game bubbauk. Seems like you have had some lucky draws in last couple of seasons. Cant complain though cause i have next 2 bye games :wink:

Looks like my first game is going to be played. Wesley has bidded on players, he hasn't assigned them to the lines yet and has no armor but he has players. I actually have to play my first 2 games and 3out of 4. You and Brak just have 2 of 4. You guys got the easy schedule.


Good Luck all!

Forfeits wins are not necessarily all good, especially in novice.

While you do get the easy win and rest, you don't get the playing time experience. In one of the novice division I'm in with Ettiene, I played all 3 of my first games (went 2-0-1), while players on the other half got two forfeit wins. By the time I got to play them, I had 5 of my orcs that had already reached level 3 (they had some experience when I bid on them), while neither of those 2 teams had any orcs at level 3. I think it was quite helpful in my beating them both in the ensuing games. Also, the other 2 games were against computer run teams that had filled up their rosters, but missed out on the prime orcs. I got fairly easy wins against them, and still continued to get the experience. I even put my third line in as starting wings and centers against one of them, which allowed me to get experience for my third line players and rest my starters, all the while still earning the victory.

So although forfeits are easy wins, I prefer the experience (and the win).

Wow that was slightly unexpected!!! Good game brak

Brakgwar's Niether Imp's 18-19 Ettiene's Experimental morons

Great way to start a season off. Both teams put up a great fight and didnt even lose a player to knockouts(although this for brak is probably a bad thing considering his reputation for putting a pounding on teams). Good luck for rest of season all. Looks like with other Overlords getting some players we might just get some competition in this league 8)

It comes down to what the homelands had to Field ...... 8)

I'm of the Mind that it will be tough to make the Play-offs but we will see ..... there were only 5 players with a Slam/Eek of both 5's and i unfortunately didn't win any opening bides :( ....... Soooo I'm stuck with relatively Week Goalies which isn't a good sign, but a few other teams are in the same boat as me on the goalies :wink:

....... then the Defence players weren't very impressive either ..... where i tend to have 4 or More Players with a Sneak/Pound of 5's most the orc's were 2/4 or 4/2 or some similar Combo .......

:shock:

I bid really high on 3 goalies (thinking i might get 1) and got all three. all have 5/5 and good get/lose. Toughness of 4 or 5. I'm pretty satisfied. I did look and found most of my guys weren't that huge pound though. I have some but you are right, not too many had a good sneak/pound.

Great game last night Brak!! Looks like my team took it away in second period again coming back from 10-3 down to win 18-11. Looking forward to second game and hopefully 3 final games :wink:
