  4. Yep, for being a Windows system tool, the Snipping Tool is indeed surprisingly handy.
  5. The OCC Legendary Invitational Qualifier

    Original post updated to reflect two changes we decided upon: 1) Coaches will be ranked based on the cumulative score of all their teams in the ladder combined. 2) There is no minimum number of matches played.
  6. Greetings OCC Coaches! To properly celebrate the arrival of BB2 Legendary Edition, Cerumol is organizing an invitational tournament, the Legendary Invitational. This tournament will be using the new resurrection tournament rules coming with BB2 LE. For more information on this, as well as the Legendary Invitational in general, have a look at the rules at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eCa3hNY1p1df0cP3EKcRF0-HhVcLHfQQs6g3QK1g8_Y/ (note that the rules might be changed slightly still, to accomodate the fact that star players cannot be rostered in BB2 LE). The Orca Cola Championship has been invited to send 2 sets of 4 coaches to the Legendary Invitational. In order to find the 8 worthy candidates, we have decided to hold a competition, the Orca Cola Championship Legandary Invitational Qualifier (OCC LI Qualifier for short). The competition will be an open ladder, and the 8 coaches to qualify will be those with the highest ranking cumulative score across all the teams that they played in the ladder. This means that coaches can play multiple teams, but all of their results will count towards the final standing. We will be posting weekly standings (because the standings within the BB2 client will only reflect the standings of individual teams). Note also that there will be no minimum requirement of matches played. So, let's lay down the basic rules first: Game: BB2 (note: not Legendary Edition, as this qualifier is taking place before Legandary Edition is released) League name: OCC LI Qualifier League settings: New teams only, no ageing, no market, stadium enhancements allowed, 3 minute turns You might have some questions at this moment, and we have thought of some answers in advance, so have a look at the following FAQ. Who can participate? Any coach who is currently playing in an OCC league (OCC1 or OCC2), or who has in the past played in an OCC league and has not been banned. Note that coaches who have applied to either OCC1 or OCC2, and who are currently on the reserves list because there wasn't enough room, are also eligible. How do I get into the competition? You need to create a new team, apply to the league in game, and then post in this thread and wait for an admin to accept your team. Can I play in the competition with multiple teams? Yes. You can of course only qualify once (your highest ranking team will be considered). Additionally, we will punish any attempt to abuse the fact that you can have multiple teams in the competition. On the other hand, we want to give coaches who got very unlucky with their first team the opportunity to attempt again with another team. How are the matches arranged for this competition? You will be using the random matchmaking of BB2 to arrange matches. We encourage everyone to use our Discord channel established for this purpose to let other coaches know that you are "spinning". You can also post in this thread to let others know that you will be "spinning" at a specific time. How long will the competition run? We expect the competition to run approximately 10 weeks. There is no fixed end date yet, because this depends on when exactly BB2 LE will be published. One final word: The OCC LI Qualifier is an OCC league. This means that all of the OCC's rules apply, including our Code of Conduct and the fact that concessions are not allowed - if you start a match, you finish it. Alright, I bet you're all excited now, so head over and apply. If you have any questions, post them here. Good luck, may Nuffle's gaze avoid you as much as possible!
  7. uploader thread....

    It's the number that you see in game as well, after the match is done and you look at the score. We don't know how Cyanide calculates it, at least not that I'm aware of. I noticed, though, that more TDs and more casualties tend to give higher ratings
  8. The Sage is our first ever OCC2 Champion!

    Grats @twitch.tv/the_Sage_BB! Though, speaking from personal experience, I can say: Playing Wood Elves is cheating
  9. Paypal Donation Button

    Greetings everyone! You may have already noticed, we put a Paypal donation button at the top right of the forum. There used to be a donation button on the forum at some point in the past, but for a long time now, we haven't had one. So why did we put the button back in? The most basic and direct answer is: Running the Orca Cola Championship web site and server comes with expenses, and we hope to cover at least part of those through donations. We don't want anyone to feel obligated to donate. The OCC is not a community that requires members to pay a membership fee, and every coach should know that they are welcome, no strings attached. However, I have been approached a few times over the years by coaches who asked if they can donate, and at the time I told them no, cause we didn't have the button. The new Paypal button is therefore our way of telling everyone: If you absolutely feel you want to donate money, to help us cover expenses, then you can, and we will be grateful to anyone who does. But I want to make one thing clear, none of the greensuits are in this for the money, and if there should ever be a time when the donations exceed expenses, we will try to find a great way of giving it back to the community - or stop donations for a while. If you have any questions, just post them below. Borke

    The OCC is a great community, and one of the best places out there to find good Blood Bowl gaming, and it is thanks to the founders, many of whom are now Teals, that it was so successful and became what it is. I can only speak for myself, of course, when I say that I intend to keep the OCC as great as it is and continue in the legacy of Zephire, Doomy and all the others. In honour of Doomy's favourite past time, we'll affix a plaque to the banhammer, reading: "Doomy's Best Friend"
  11. Hearthstone?

    So salty But yes, Arena needs attention. I used to like playing this, and it's not even that long ago, but the variance has increased to ridiculous levels. It's not just that classes are unbalanced (which they are), it's also that the quality of the decks you are able to draft with what you get given can vary extremely. You can get really, really shitty decks these days, with all those flavourful cards added in (which make great sense in constructed, but fail in drafting environments).
  12. Hearthstone?

    Arena has gotten incredibly cut throat, indeed. I hardly ever get beyond 2-4 wins. I was super happy with a 7-3 run with Druid recently.
  13. Hearthstone?

    I've seen similar lists, and I believe they had Tracking and Flare in it (not sure how many each). I might also have seen Infest in a similar deck - not exactly card draw, but it generates minions together with Unleash or Call of the Wild.
  14. The OCC1 Uploader

    Quick important note: The password reset functionality should be working again now. No actual change to how you use the uploader, just very important to anyone who forgot their password.
  15. Hearthstone?

    Best! Game! Ever! I just played the Yogg Druid deck against a control Warrior, was down by quite a lot, cast Yogg, Yogg casts Gang Up on himself... I got to cast Yogg three times, and won! Sooo many spells
