  1. Up Yours, Nuffle!

    Cheers, Thorrek!
  2. So I dug out this old thing and gave it a bit of a brushup. After I had two absolutely terrible seasons with a necro team, I decided to take the game less seriously, and made an underworld team called Up Yours, Nuffle! I named all the players after the way I guessed they would die. The first troll was 'Fouled by a Goblin,' the second I think something like 'Deadly Bowel Movement.' My star runner was "Death by GFI," etc. A Day at the Office The office was small and stuffy, with the acrid stench of warpstone fumes imprinted in the sparse furnishings. On the floor lay a thick red rug so riddled with mystery stains it was now a permanent fixture. On the wall, a makeshift shelf hosted rows of vials filled with tell-tale grey dust and a single worn book entitled The Smart-Ass Dictionary: Words That Make You Sound Important. At an appropriately sized desk sat a particularly hideous goblin with an oversized jaw and toxic green eyes. His feet were up and his chair tilted back. He wore a permanent savvy grin that clenched down on a chewed-up cigar. A carved wooden sign teetered on the brink of the desk. It read Nubber Gobflap, Head Coach. Nubber was currently giving a piece of mind to a young goblin in a blood-spattered leather apron, who carried the tell-tale bone saw of an apothecary. "I dun care 'ow much that pustulent whinebag says 'is back 'urts! E's playin' da next game! How we gunna stomp dark elves without a troll ta put 'em down in the first place?!" There was spittle spraying all over the room. It was hypnotising the way Nubber managed to talk so much yet never quite lose grip of that cigar stump. "Ah, well. You see his spine did not set right and–" "Damn it Splint, it was yer ineptitude broke his back in the first place!" "Actually, that honour belongs to–" "When I hired ya it was ta keep my team hardy. Can ya do that?" “Snotstone should be able to–” “And what did I tell you 'bout the names?! I hired 'em! I name 'em! They gotta embrace their death, they gotta know it's comin'! If they can accept that, damn near makes 'em illimitable!” “Yes well, not all the players are very happy with–” “Stonkin' gibblets, Splint, you think I pay them to be happy?!” Nubber bashed his goblin fist in the desk, which was built sufficiently shonky to shake impressively under the limited display of force. The wooden sign finally failed its see-saw game and fell onto the rug, as if making a desperate attempt to escape the room. Nubber got up and counted fourteen vials from his shelf, which he placed on the desk. “Go on, get back to work! I want to see some mutations for the next game! Gotta show dem high-falutin', rootin'-tootin', stick-up-their arse elves what's what!” The apothecary made a mock bow and swept the vials carelessly into his satchel before scampering out of the room, all while being showered by more insults and spittle. As the room was once again empty, the shouting slowly dissipated into grumblings and mumbled misgivings. Nubber took his book down and started flipping through the grimy pages. “Laborious stuff this, running a Blood Bowl team. Yes. Very laborious indeed,” he said to no one in particular.
  3. Clubs? Clubs. CLUBS!

    You may have noticed that there is a new tab next to the leaderboards called Clubs. The feature gives forum members the ability to create their own sub-communities to the OCC, complete with their own forums and moderation rights, all with the click of a button! This takes a bit of burden away from admin shoulders and removes clutter in the forum feed from particularly active sub-communities (looking at you, Hearthstone thread). So if you have an interest and want a place to organise it within the OCC, there is now an easy option. Want to manage a gambling den? Start a club. Want to revive the OCC Gazette? Start a club. Want to do a secret Santa exchange? Start a club. Interested in etymology? Start a club! Wooo, clubs! Below is a list of current clubs. Streamers TheSpydyr's OCC Game Videos AndyDavo & Zunk on Twitch the Sage OCC content Games Online Mordheim Hearthstone Club NFL Fantasy Premier League Fantasy Other The Marienburg Library (fanfiction!) Woo, clubs!
  4. We recently received a complaint that one of our MD threads had sexist content. Upon further investigation and discussion, the Orca Cola Directors concluded that the material in the thread was inappropriate for an official communication from the league. It had some NSFW elements and a video which objectified women, neither of which should appear in a place people are forced to view in order to participate in our league. We want all coaches to feel welcome in the OCC. The content has been removed. The OCC has a Code of Conduct, and it applies to everyone, most of all ourselves. That being said, we strongly dislike removing content as opposed to having an open discussion about it. But since the problem was in an MD thread, that was not a possibility in this particular case. Should you have any thoughts or comments, we are happy to have an open discussion in this thread.
  5. Connectivity in BB2?

    It's a much more solid game, now, though not without its problems. There are some bugs that we hope get squashed with LE (which will likely introduce a slew of new annoying bugs), but they are not as plentiful as in BB1. The good news is that Cyanide does seem to finally have gotten the point that if they want the game to live, they need to listen to the community. So they're implementing a lot of suggestions that have been made. It's not going to be perfect, and their skill at solving problems in logical ways (and in ways that don't create new ones) still needs work, but at least they are making an effort.
  6. Connectivity in BB2?

    You have a 6-minute window to reconnect (I believe in LE, this will also count towards your pause time, and you only get 6 minutes total). But it means that we see very few games that need resetting in OCC2. I think we've had around five resets needed in the OCC2 so far (a total of 33 match days have passed). Connectivity is also all-around better, from what I experience and hear. I've had one disconnect that wasn't due to my own connection during my entire playtime of over 300 hours. I've seen opponents (in serious games) disconnect three or four times.
  7. Leaderboards Broken

    The leaderboards/stats are not updating, most likely due to Cyanide's servers being overloaded by beta, and not something on our sude. Either way, we can only wait and hope they get fixed. Until then, keep playing your matches!
  8. Forum - How to follow the important stuff

    Additional note: You can manage your followed content from your control panel. Click the down-arrow next to your name in the top right panel and click 'Manage Followed Content'. From there you have an easy overview of the topics and forums you follow, and you can set them up individually for different types of alerts and notifications. These functions are all separate from your custom feed, and you can use either or both to stay up to date.
  9. Hearthstone?

    Happy to see this up and running. I've linked it in a pinned topic in the gaming forum, and I'll make a big announcement in a week or so where I'll list all clubs and explain them a bit (and add something to the FAQ). Meanwhile, feel free to post a topic to advertise this place in the online community forum, if you so wish. Later on, I will change the settings of the 'blocks' (the things that pop up on the right) so that club threads show up in recent community content as well.
  10. Hearthstone?

    Nevermind, I just made it possible for regular members to create clubs as well. No reason not to. If someone makes an inappropriate club we can just delete it.
  11. Hearthstone?

    I can make you a coach if you want to head up the effort, just send me a pm. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who's ever been a coach can be blue.
  12. Hearthstone?

    Hello! Since Hearthstone sees a lot of discussion in this thread, I suggest one of you take the initiative and create a Club for the game! Clubs are a new feature that lets community members (anyone blue or above) create their own sub-communities, complete with forums. The creator (and anyone they promote) will have moderation rights. That way you won't be confined to a single topic, and you won't be spamming the updates for people following the OCC online community forum. To create a club, check out the club tab at the top of the forum (next to leaderboards etc). If you create the club, I'll be happy to move this topic into it (you'll have to create a subforum as well, go to 'Manage club' and add 'Topics' (it's a forum, the name is a bit misleading). I will also create a pinned post with all game-related clubs, soon, and once things are up and running, make a forum-wide announcement. If you have any questions, go ahead and ask!
