    Season 9, Match Day 3: A nice, relaxing game of MADNESS! Watch the game HERE! WOMEN WITH ATTITUDE vs COON AND FRIENDS There's two things the Women with Attitude hate more than anything else in the world; diet sodas and Claw. I sit on the sideline as the gals stumble on to the field. Nauseated, my trusty bucket by my side, praying to the God Motilius to rid me of my sickness. My stomach-issues are quickly forgotten, as @Motb and I partake in what can only be described as "Whose Bowl is it Anyway?" where everything is made up and the rolls don't matter. This game has everything from amazingly agile Ogres, dodging through Chaos lines without ever needing Break Tackle all the way to a suicidal Minotaur who will not rest until he ruins Motb's day. There is little I can write to do this game justice and I know that I often describe our games as "insanely stupid" and "absolute madness", but I can't help it. Trust me, you can't make this stuff up. As mentioned by @Mongloom, there were a few moments I definitely misplayed. And perhaps we would've won if it was not for my inferior coaching skills. We will be on the lookout for those chain-pushes in the future! Good game to Motb. May his new Minotaur not sabotage him at every turn.

    Jester told you about chainpushing at the end of the 1st half when you were prone out of range... in that case the TTM play did look better to me, but it does always worth to think in a chainpushing play! I meant the 15th turn... when your ball carrier lady was surrounded by 4 players Blitz after break tackle 2+ on the 6th MA 2DB with jugger only 2skulls wont work. Pushes out the ball carrier 2+ to go out the tackle zone 2+ gfi or 2+ to hand off with catch skill reroll option. That was the easiest way IMHO to score in that insane game. Anyways... you did not lose!!! Great job girls!

    This made me laugh at 6:15am, no mean feat. In other news, I'm also being accused of being a gentleman. I shan't be able to show my face in impolite society again.

    Oh man!!! You had it!!! Congrats for the not defeat! I would have blitzed with the +MA to chainpush the ball carrier on 15th turn, then... break tackle to the TD or to the handoff to the +AG gnoblar. I have seen you dont like chainpushing, we our fans would love you to improve that skill! And please... dont pile on a KO roll!! Especially if you have already used the for the AV roll!!!

    Orcs done:- Until I got over say 1800 it was going fairly well. Those claw teams at high TV hurt. Lost a couple of POMB blitzers and never really recovered. The Blorcs also got hit hard and I lost a few. The ST5 dude came late, but was great!

    There are a few different factors at play. Here is an attempt to break them down: Impact of the league rules Some BB leagues have specific rules that will have immediate impact on how "bashy" they are. Examples of such rules are: - "Stunty teams only" - "Only one kill skill per player" - "No more than X% of any given team in the whole league" The first two examples are rather rare in public leagues, they deviate considerably from the default, standard ruleset, and therefore in my experience tend to attract fewer players. The last example is something that might be found a little more often. If I'm not mistaken, the UKBBL uses a maximum quota for teams (I might be wrong, but I'm sure there's at least one of the bigger leagues out there that does it). The impact of this on the bashiness of the league is a little bit more subtle, of course. But if you only allow a certain amount of Chaos teams, I'm pretty sure it will have some effect. Differences between leagues with the same rules Even if two leagues have the same rules, they might still differ in how bashy they are or feel. Part of what makes leagues different is of course the coaches playing in them, as well as the league's history. Over time a certain style might come to dominate, and there's also the usual ebb and flow of "Claw vs. Orc vs. Elf vs. Claw", which might be at one extreme right now, but then turn back another way in a few months. It's going to be difficult to put your finger on why exactly the OCC might be particularly bashy in this context, and it will be equally difficult to judge whether another league will turn out to be more or less bashy now, or in a few months. However, it's not the first time I've heard that the OCC is currently more on the bashy side. In fact, Schlice wrote analysis on the statistics here and here, and the OCC turned out to be a bit weird and bashy - but this was a couple of seasons ago at least. Your own impact No matter how bashy the league is that you play in, you can always choose to "play around the bash". Fast, agile teams can be pretty successful in a bashy environment - especially if all the claw teams have reduced the number of Orcs. You shouldn't get too attached to your players, of course. After all, you're playing Elves/Skaven with tons of MB players around, someone's gonna get hurt. But you can still be very successful, even when your team gets beaten up regularly, if you're playing Elves against lots of Chaos/Nurgle/Chorf teams.
