    No Amazons?

    NO AMAZONS?? :(

    I'm tempted to change just so every race is represented at least with one team.

    But I'd have to cram a lot of games in a short timeframe to be viable. So probably not.

    Limdood can chime in here but I'd expect Mominatrix will pop in with a 'zon lineup

    besides, norse is pretty sparse too

    I speculate that playing dwarves in the other crunch has far reaching consequences.
    You missed

    I finally decided on a team.
    Phunbaba both
    ReRolls are for Pansies
    Nurgle (cause I've only seen one other for sure and I'm feeling masochistic again)
    GMT-7

    On page 8 of the sign up thread.
    I may change my mind and go Nozama Horde (Amazons) if no one else says their taking Amazons into the CC.

    I heard Nik wasn't going to let you back in unless you brought the Flailers, not true anymore?

    :p

    Nice one there Ken. Can i suggest you sort the spreadsheet by either race or coach name?

    After my Underworld's awesome effort in CTALE, i'm tempted to submit them into CCXII instead of my Vamps. But i need practice with Vamps if i want to get to div 1 in OCC. Hmm, what to do, what to do... :confused:

    There is a stunty team award, of course, but that's not available to Nurgle :p

    Interesting to compare with OCC stats. Darkies being high up is no surprise, nor Orcs, but Necromantic being in second place is definitely different.

    Another interesting tidbit is that, apart from the ever popular Orcs, all the other 3 most frequent race picks are races that has won the CC quite recently. Bandwagon much? :p

    - Narly. The list is currently sorted by forum post sequence. Phunbaba even got added to the list prior to jounisii. But if sorting by race /tv keeps you as vamps for diversity, I'll come up with something :)

    -Barm. You'd better believe I first tried Liz because of you. But you can hardly call it a bandwagon when I play them with such a profoundly different style. (Yeah I'm calling systematic basing a style, it's called "other-coach bad-rolling you hope for style"

    ...there's only one skaven team >> Top three are Darkies, Necro, Orcs in that order, followed by Chaos, Gobbos and Highs tied for fourth.

    You forgot the 4 Lizzie teams.

    Anyway, except for not understanding wth we have such an influx of Dark Elves (yeah, they're good... but 7?!) it's a great spread that makes the CC one of the better leagues IMHO. We'll see what the final tally settles at.

    Ah yes, I misread the 5 orcs as 5 skaven, stupid tiny phone screen. Well there's no way I can change team now.

    Nothing really unexpected aside from no amazons.

    Also, it´s kinda sad to see me as the only fling team for reals now. Only one to be that insane could be one way to see it :D

    now we've lost our only KhD team in favour of another Cha lineup... it's a sad day for the one dwarf team everywhere.
