    So I find myself unable to decide between 4 teams I'm considering entering into CCX and I could do with some feedback.

    The optionas are:

    Undead: Undead Weight defend their title

    Chaos: The return of Nuffle's Evil Minions

    Elf: A rookie Elf team cos I've never played with Pro Elves

    Skaven: Another rookie team and a race I've little recent experience with

    Although I'm terrified of the Weight, you've got a team capable of making it two titles in a row. Never been done before.

    So go on mate, make history :)

    I'm torn. Like Barninho, I think I'd like to see if you can defend your title. However there's an angry Skaven CEO on my shoulder telling me to vote Skaven at all costs.

    So I have.

    I'm going for Undead Weight this time as I like it when the defending champions play. However I'm also putting a cheeky vote in for you to use rookie Skaven next season should the Weight not retain their crown.

    I'm very tempted to vote for Skaven because I'd like the easy SPP... :D

    I'm bringing a 1200 TV elf to the CC so I'd prefer less elves.

    In the end I think its correct that the Champion stride forth to be properly dealt with... and beaten up on the field. Defending his turf.

    But my answer is ... you should play them only if you will have fun...

    I'm voting Skaven because I want to see Skaven win the CC.

    (Yes, this is a very poorly disguised compliment, jr ;))

    History. It's what the CC is all about from what I can see. Keep it alive! errr.... un-alive?

    Er... I don't know the history of CC as well as the real old-timers here but I think the CC originally was a new teams only cup, but along the way there was some change. As short ago as before CC8 there was actually a debate on wether teams should even be allowed in for the third cup in a row. So no, it's definetly not all about the history ;)

    really? huh... seemed to me with all the teams blogs that everyone keeps their team for a ton of seasons. there are blogs with hundreds of responses and thousands of views. Unless i'm missing something... ?

    Most of the team blogs that are very long are either for OCC, or for TableTop.

    Whilst it is true that no team has ever won the CC twice, I would much prefer to see a race that has never won the CC at all, claim the title. As per John Maddmen’s article (shameless plug) in the last CCC, I would therefore urge all players to coach Ogres, High Elves, Chaos, Goblins, Halflings, Norse, Skaven or Wood Elf teams for the upcoming CCX. I will die happy if every race has made it to the top 2 of a CC. :D

    However, if you do go with the Undead, I would be tempted to give my Vamps another run for CCX, as I reckon they’ve got your number. I also heard Sorrow is going to give his Elves (Pro elf I think?) another run and they are around tv 2,000. So we may need some high tv teams for tier 1.

    OK so it looks at the moment that the consensus is to try and retain the title with Undead Weight.

    It also looks like my suspicions about who would vote for what were pretty close as well ;).

    There's been good points raised on both sides of the Weights vs Skaven debate and I think it's down to one of those 2 now, still can't decide which to go for though.

    Actually, since Fallowheart said to change his vote to Skaven (which I don't believe is possible) it should be 4-4, no?

    Hmm, that reminds me, I may need to look at a revision to the rules, this being UEI and all.

    How about "in the event of a draw the result counts as a Skaven win?"

    Or even "In the event that Goblins lose by less than 2 TD the result counts as a Goblin win?"

    :p

    I whole heartedly support that suggestion GB, and welcome our new (old) Skaven overlords.
