    Here's your place to describe in great detail how you're going to dismantle your opponents.

    Here are the season's predictions:

    First place:
    Happy Christmas, jounisii (Underworld)
    Noteworthy player: Sweater Knitted by Grandma (AG 4 Underworld Goblin)

    The first of two Underworld teams in the division, Happy Christmas is headed by veteran coach jounisii. Both Blitzers are already well on their way to being killers, and a Goblin with AG 4 will make scoring relatively easy. With few teams built to punish stunties in this division, the Underworld teams should both do well.

    Second place:
    Criminal Underworld, jrpeart (Underworld)
    Noteworthy player: Knerutch (AG 4, MA 8 Skaven Thrower)

    The Criminal Underworld should also be strong contenders in this division. Thrower Knerutch could very well be the scoring champion for the division, if he's not throwing scoring passes to other players. Again, with the relative lack of block and tackle in the division, Underworld teams should have an opportunity to shine.

    Third place:
    Lady death rises, Netsmurf (Dark Elf)
    Noteworthy player: The Prophet (Runner)

    Netsmurf's emo band should do pretty well. The Prophet is the best developed player on the team, but all four Blitzers already have dodge, so they will be incredibly difficult to bring down. Initially, they may be somewhat limited with only a single Witch Elf and no Assassins in early matches. At the same time, their relatively low TV should give them some inducements in early games to make up for a lack of development and players.

    Fourth place:
    Categories, .marXman./Tjorne (Chaos)
    Noteworthy player: Subsistence (MV 7, AG 4 Beastman)

    Chaos teams generally struggle at lower TV, since they start with minimal basic skills. This team is just starting to turn the corner, and it may very well be a powerhouse by the time the playoffs roll around. Subsistence has the potential to be a scoring machine as well as a great safety on defense.

    Fifth place:
    Gobbos Union, Drakandm24 (Orc)
    Noteworthy player: Mugsnatch (Troll)

    This Goblin-heavy Orc team could have trouble in this division. Most of the players who aren't Goblins have Block, but the lack of Tackle could make things difficult in this Dodge-heavy division. With that many Goblins, there should be many opportunities for 1-turn touchdown shenanigans.

    Sixth place:
    Green Luke's Pig Heads, Majimbauro (Halfling)
    Noteworthy player: Green Luke (MV3 Treeman)

    Without doubt, the Pig Heads were the Cinderella team of Crunch Cup 15. They made the playoffs as a wild card, and even managed to win their first round match before losing in the semifinals. They should be picking up significant inducements in each match, but even that may not be enough to get them in the playoffs.

    Good luck everybody! Now go out and prove these predictions wrong.

    Yeah, Green Luke's Pig Heads were deliberately seeded into a division where they'd get substantial inducements for most matches. :)

    True the lack of tackle will help the stunties( including mine ) and dodgy ones but my greenies are still sore from their CTALE exploits and are ready for the big time...or so they keep telling me:)

    With plenty block bit of guard and MB i can bash with the best and with a streak of sneakiness i should be able to pull off the odd elf-like bs play.

    Course we'll see what happens on the field! Good luck lads the unionists are ready:p

    Yea, we really need more Tackle in the division. Also I'm not too keen to go up against those killer Vermins, but hopefully they won't be able to pick up Claw or any other nasty habits before I play them.

    Apart from that I'm looking forward to pull a Chaos team through a "real" league for a bit, I think the Categories can reach the sweet spot soon, Nuffle willing.

    Also, have fun everyone:powdodge:

    After doing our make up we will be sure to stroll through this division in style. Never defeated and intend on keeping it that way - in fact should some be so lucky to get a draw against us - then dont go bragging about it, as it will be a gift from superiority. Superior = Dark Elfs:D

    Well, that's a solid plan - as can be expected from you :D By the time we meet I should have 3 clawMB players. Do you have enough AV7 players to mark them all?

    Butchered a few Elves today but got a dead (0SPP) beast and a 2-0 defeat in the bargain. Not sure if I should be happy...

    This season went badly for me in wins, but well in development. I could not control the game really, had bad luck and the wrong time and probably made mistakes as well. On the other hand I got quite a few levels, so if CC goes to another round in BB1, I'll probably give them another shot.

    Now I only have to stomp some Orcs into the ground in our last game, that should be fun. :skull:
