    9 is a little late, but I should be able to play. Get ready for an easy game, the All Stars left me in a bad state.

    Well I had some amazing dice against Alttarego.
    They won the toss and chose to receive with a thrown rock KO'ing their journeyman DP and stunning my goat. They then recovered the ball and knocked down my line of scrimmage.
    Then my block , armour and injury dice went insane.
    Over the next 6 turns I killed a Troll slayer , gave a dancer -AV , badly hurt 3 other players and KO'd 2 more.
    I also rolled a pow on every block against the wardancers ( apart from a rerolled double skull ).
    That let me pick up the ball and get within 1 square on the endzone with the ball on my 3 SPP blitzer so he could level.
    Then the cowardly good alliance bolted a dancer with their wizard and conceded.
    So no skill for my blitzer but I did get a bonus MVP and extra cash (like I need to increase my TV even more).

    Wait. @Alttarego has conceded the match on the basis that he was losing? With no life threating or emergency issue? Just because of dice outcome?

    I told him he killed the team, He had 500 + tv on me, i got merc w DP, he was hit with rock T0 gone , by T2 killed 2 (WD + TS), T4 I tried to foul used both bribe and failed (didnt even know u could try 2 bribes), every hit was a removal and those wernt MB claw hits ,most were normal hits with all perms. Last straw was Wizard missing BC and not even gonna try after that. You cant deny Victory to anyone rolling like that,. better to preserve whats left of your team if there is anything left of it at that point.

    Yes I figured he is a new coach who didn't realise that you don't concede in league matches. It would have been a tough match for him to win but he had 2 babes so there was a good chance of him having 8 players and the wizard 2nd half. That means a draw is still possible if the wizard is used at the right time and the wardancer can leap in and pick up the ball.
    His situation wasn't helped but not having an apothecary despite having over 100K to spend before the match and over 500K in inducements. I would almost certainly have had 2.

    My dice were rather good but taking inducements to foul rather than to survive against a team with 2 claw MB players and a lot more strength was IMO a mistake.

    I've actually got a couple other games scheduled for sunday. In order to be early in the day we'd have to start at like 8:00am CST (2:00pm GMT). I'm looking at having games scheduled at 10:00 and noon, so the next time I'd be able to do it would be 2:00pm CST (8:00pm GMT). Let me know what your thoughts are.

    @Alttarego @tys123
    Thank you for the explanation of the situation.
    I realized that it is worth mentioning once in a while. I myself take it for granted, but it is more a matter of the habit.
    So...

    The match should not be conceded unless there is a real life situation that calls for it. If your team is being killed and destroyed, or you just have crappy dice all the time, it does not provide any excuses for conceding. Public ladders are known for that, but in the private persistent leagues as a rule conceding due to game itself is not allowed.

    I know, sometimes it is worth to take a loss, but save the team, or Nuffle just laughs you in the face, but conceding the game has far going outcome which affects not only your team, but all other teams in the league. So, please don't concede.
