    I can't find the "Blood Bowl resources" link on Games Workshop's site anymore, and even though I can google my way directly to the Blood Bowl competition rules PDF, I can't open it.

    What gives, GW? Anyone have any idea of what's going on?

    Moved at the very least - the link from Cyanide doesn't work. Very strange.

    I can at least open the document from my browser now, but it downloads really slowly, again not sure why. :confused:

    As guided by Millandson, it is surprisingly hidden in the Cyanide install.

    Mine was here:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\blood bowl legendary edition

    the link on the BBTactics homepage still works fine

    perhaps they removed the link on the GW page but the file is still there

    The rules are still up on the website, as are all the rules (and pdf articles) for all the other Specialist Games, unfortunately you need to know the address.

    For example, BB is: http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m780049a_Blood_Bowl_Competition_Rules.pdf

    This happened before - someone does something to the website (last time it was updating the store) it breaks something else, in this case, these links.
    From talking to guys in the Events Team, I know it can take a couple of weeks for stuff to happen (or get fixed) on the website, unless it's something that loses them money (like items underpriced - that get's fixed ASAP!).

    Well, in a bizarre kind of way, then we're just hoping its incompetence and not something sinister - go GW!

    I noticed this while looking for the BFG stuff the other week.

    Darkson - I don't suppose you can give me a link to the rest of the specialist stuff please? Most grateful if you could.

    Edit - It's the BFG and Epic stuff I'm after.

    If you can find any site that was linking to them, then should be able to find them no problem. May even still be links in google as well.

    Yeah, you can google and find direct links to the documents, I just don't see the point in taking down the links.

    Ah well, it's probably a bug then.
