We wanted things to be about the individual players rather than a star having a good day (or bad)



This appears to be a cast iron Cymreig guarantee that my normal rostered players will have neither good nor bad days. Decision made, I'm bringing Amazons.

I do know...but had forgotten. I'll consider you reminding me as my Christmas present.

I'm sure your team mates were very supportive. :o

I just want to point out the differences that the current 2018 rules have for the (some former) tier 3 teams. They were not played a lot as it was, and some of them have been shafted quite hard. As for tier 1 and 2, only the expensive tier 2 teams have been (slightly) nerfed, mainly necro and nurgle.

The halflings have the worst issues. Lets say that they buy both their treemen and 14 halflings, the chef and three rerolls. They will then have 160k left to spend on ... what? An apo that they rarely will use? FF, babes and coaches? Even more rerolls? :-?

Underworld and vampires also got it bad. They trade 50k that could be spent on team or skills for a normal skill. They also lost the star players and Wilhelm and Skitter are common picks. As there is no stunty prize for them, I doubt they will be played much.

Goblins have lost 20K and the ability to hire star players, but will bounce back a bit easier than the halflings. More so with the new positionals. Still, without Ripper there will be less goblins flying across the pitch.

The ogres have lost 20K that they kind of needed for teambuilding and another 30k if they went with only one dbl. As an example, with the previous rules they could field six ogres, five snotlings and still have three rerolls. Skills on the vulnerable snotlings don't give them much. The loss of star players hurt them less, but it limits the options.

Happy new year all

Thanks for the comments Lockmund

As we’ve mentioned before we wanted to keep things as clear and simple for all players. We acknowledge that not everyone will agree or like our rule set but we’d never be able to achieve that whatever we did.

I’ve seen and heard all kinds of rulesets and ideas for tiers and levelling from the straight forward to the wacky and complicated and I’m still not convinced that anyone has cracked a way for two players of equal ability to have an even match up as woodies vs halflings (as an example).

If you have any ideas or suggestions then there are other sections of TFF and the NAF site where a lively debate is sure to be found.

In the meantime our rules are what they are, in accordance with the Eurobowl Charter and with the approval of the Eurobowl committee and we hope to see you in Cardiff in October

Couple of questions as I’m looking at joining in with a team for Europen. How much will a team ticket be? Is the payment schedule from May until August? And is hotel prices separate (as my folks have always wanted to visit Cardiff so what better opertunity). It’s just so I start saving now :D
