Season 3 Mid-Season Transfer Market Report

Hello fans and Blood Bowlers! I'm NBP's newest correspondent Dead Sabol and I'm here to bring you the Transfer Market Report! As you fans know, mid-season is the time when coaches can take advantage of the Nuffle Be Praised Transfer Market to either call up a player from one of their development teams or to trade for a player from another coaches development teams! This Season was a little different because it was the third season in our cycle this time we have allowed 2 players to be called up to a team instead of the usual one! Without further ado, let's take a look at all the moves made by the Pro Teams in this transfer week!

We start with The Eastern Conference In the Tar and Feather Division where first we check in with #Swole. The drunken boys of the #Swole frat took full advantage of the transfer market to call up Brometheus a Troll Slayer with Dodge from the dev squad Beta Omicron Omicron Beta to replace the deceased Visaryis Targaryen and as well as promoting Algrom a long beard with Guard and Mighty Blow, to take the place of a fresh longbeard sent back down to developmental.

Will Bromethus succeed where Targaryen failed?

Mighty Blow and Guard is always a vicious combination.

The other team to take advantage of the transfer market in the Tar and Feather was Strong Bad's Awesome Team as they traded Coach Z to the Kids in The Hall for a Agility 4, Leaping Wrestler Beast-man named Dave Jadiski! Will Jadiski be the missing piece that takes Strong Bad's Awesome Team to the next level?!

He might look heavy, but he weighs only 50 pounds and can really swing.

Sticking with the Eastern Conference we head over to Deep Dark where Rats off To Ya has promoted 2 players from their developmental squad Trap Haus. Jan Skylar a claw, mighty blow, tackle Storm Vermin, and Saxman a 2 headed, strength up, movement up, wrestling Gutter Runner. To make room for the new additions Gibbons and City Councilman 2 were relegated down to Trap Haus.

Mighty Blow and Claw is a great combination, add tackle and you get a fearsome player.

The other team to take advantage of the transfe rmarket in the Deep Dark Divsion was Loki's Toys, who called up Poison Ivy a dodge berserker and, Venus Fly Trap a pile on mighty blow berserker to replace the dead beserkers on the team.

That is one ugly broad

Correction, THAT is one ugly broad!

Next up we head over to the Western Conference where we check in with Ale and Anarchy where Das Slaytanic Wehrmacht has traded for The Frog King a Strength 4 Blodging Ghoul from Brothers Grimm, and has also traded for Helmut The Champion a Strength 4 Blodging Wight from Wayward Pine. DSW traded the players Blut Sauger and Volkmar Ritter von Faust to make room.

Whats worse than a Ghoul with str up and a blodge?

Next up we pop into the Salt Works Division where Underworld Blood Wars have promoted Nihilus Forever-Hungry a Mighty Blow Tackle, Agility Up Wight and Bane Game Changer a blodging guard tackle from Darkness Squadron and have relegated Lucien and Thomas down to Darkness Squadron.

Agility is a nice stat to have on a Wight

Lastly we head over to the Europa Conference and the Old World Division where first The Dangerous Warriors have promoted The Dark Lord a block mighty blow chaos warrior from their dev squad Dangerous Reserves.

Block is the best skill you can take for a chaos warrior, followed of course by Mighty Blow.

Next up we check in with The Orion Magics where they relegated player Endenfal to the little Orion Magics in order to promote Chessovir a thrower with leader and dodge.

I don't think I've ever seen a thrower these particular skills.

Finally the last transfer we have da wild tings, who have promoted their Goblin Nizig a strength up blocker from their dev squad the Ironcrag Decimators.

I think Nizig has the potential to have the most impact with this skill set on his team.

Well that does it for the transfer recap! I''m Dead Sabol saying thanks for tuning in and remember to Always Praise Nuffle!

 

Inside The NBP Season 3 WEEK 4/Mid-Season Recap

Hello fans and blood bowlers and welcome to the Mid-Season Recap edition of Inside The NBP! I'm Crypt Collinsworth your malevolent emcee for all things Blood Bowl! This week we have a super sized edition of Inside The NBP as not only do we have full coverage from Week Four's action we also have a dedicated mid-season recap with our newest correspondent Dead Sabol! The mid-season recap will feature standings for all the divisions as well as the overall rankings placing all 24 pro teams in a list from top to bottom!

We know it's been a few weeks since you all have experienced Nuffle Be Praised Action! So let's quit wasting time and send it over to my main maggot man in NBP Mr. Ronnie Rott!

Let's hear it for the highest rated rotting corpse on prime time Cabal-vision.

Let's hear it for the highest rated rotting corpse on prime time Cabal-vision.

Honored as always Crypt! What do we say fans? Are we dying to get to this week's action? With the mid-season break we've all been fiending for some NBP Action! This past week of course was our first week of inter-divisional Intra-conference play! We matched up the top teams of every division in each conference against the other team in that conference. So 1st from Tar and Feather plays First from Deep Dark, First from Ale and Anarchy plays first from Salt Works, and First from Beheaded Kings plays First from Old World. 2 will then play 2 and so on! With that let's get to the first match!

In the battle of the top ranked teams in Tar and Feather and Deep Dark, Strong Bad's Awesome Team featuring Herman Menderchuk took on Rats off To Ya!! Both teams came into the match looking for the victory to solidify their spot in their divisions. Though The Awesome Team was able to brutalize the rats up and down the pitch, they could not account for the superior mobility and agility of the rats. Falling 3 to 2 to Rats off To ya in their toughest match of the season.

In the battle of second place in the eastern conference The Stinking Geysers took on Kingdom of The Misfit. The Geysers came in with so much inducement dollars they were able to purchase Ripper! However the star player was injured in the second half after not making much of an impact as the match ended in a 1 to 1 draw.

Next up we have third place #Swole taking on third place Goth Bondage Party. What a strange turn of events as we have two of the most talented teams in NBP in third place in their divisions. This match had extra significance to long time NBP fans. As you will remember in Season One in the Eastern Conference Finals #Swole defeated Goth Bondage Party in overtime to earn a spot into the Season one championship. In Season 2 it was Goth Bondage Party who eliminated #Swole from the playoffs and ended their playoff hopes. In the Rubber match it was #Swole who proved the better team, winning the match 2 to 0 over Goth Bondage Party.

Finally in the battle of the last ranked teams in the Eastern Conference STD Pros took on Loki's Toys. Despite being in the bottom of their divisions both teams playoff hopes are still alive. After a spirited match that actually featured no injuries neither team got the advantage ending tied 1 to 1.

Next up we head to the match ups in the Western Conference, where first up we have Das Slaytanic Wehrmacht taking on defending champion Dumpster Diving Lizards. Both teams were evenly matched coming into today, as was shown on the pitch. As neither team suffered any permanent damage in the 1 to 1 tie.

In the second ranked match up, Street Fighter Elves took on Nekromancies Folly. Nekromancies Folly scored the injuries early, including a death and raising of Sagat. However Street Figher Elves never gave up and scored the go ahead touchdown in the waning moments of the match to pull of the 2 to 1 victory.

Next up the third placed Speedy Demons took on The Springfield Atoms. Both teams have been struggling this season, in particular the Atoms have tried to adapt to a new style offense with limited success. Unfortunately the woes continued for the crew from Springfield as Speedy Demons kept up the pressure and won the match 2 to 1.

In our final match up of the Western Conference The winless Cure took on the similiarly winless Underworld Blood Wars. It was put up or shut up time for the 2 bottom ranked Teams in Nuffle Be Praised, however Underworld Blood Wars steeped up opening up an avalanche of touchdowns winning 3 to 0 and leaving The Cure struggling to figure out an answer to get back into contention.

Now we move over to the Europa Conference where in match up one the top ranked Kiss of Death takes on the Top Ranked Pax Romana. In another deadlocked match up this week neither team could score the second touchdown as the match was tied 1 to 1 as time expired.

In the battle of the second place teams we have the classic match up of Orcs vs Humans as da wild tings clashed with The Rockport Redbacks. The match went as expected with the orcs punishing the human players with superior strength and better armor. However The Redbacks persevered and using their superior skill set score the games only touchdown winning 1 to 0.

Alain Armiarma scores the winning touchdown for The Redbacks.

In the battle of the third place teams we had an elf showdown, as The Orion Magics Wood Elves took on The Old Orleans Saints 2 High Elves. In a match that ties the all time record for most touchdowns scored in one game, The Orion Magics put up an eye popping 5 touchdowns while shutting out The Old Orleans Saints 2 completely, winning 5 to 0.

Take a look at the scoreboard 5 to 0 is very uncommon indeed.

Take a look at the scoreboard 5 to 0 is very uncommon indeed.

In our last match up of the week Let's Go Beserk!!!! took on Dangerous Warriors in a match that could be best described as a War of Attrition. Let's Go Beserk lost 2 Berserkers to death as well as having a thrid player with a permanent injury en-route to a 2 to 2 tie with Dangerous Warriors.

The Rainy conditions for the match that produced such mayhem.

Well that does it for the injury report this week! However instead of sending it back over to Crypt to wrap things up first we are going to check in with our brand new correspondent Mr. Dead Sabol! Who is going to bring us the mid season recap!

Thank you Howard and indeed thank you to all the fans of NBP for welcoming me to Inside The NBP! I'm Dead Sabol and I'm here with a special mid season recap! We are going to go over all the standings in each division, as well as overall rankings for all 24 pro teams! And a mock up of who would make the play offs today if we went off the 4 game record!

First up let's look at the standings, here we check in with Tar and Feather Division where in first place we have Strong Bad's Awesome Team with 5 points, followed closely by #Swole with 4 points and 59 SPP and Stinking Geysers with 4 points and 47 SPP, with STD Pros in the bottom with 3 points! All eyes are on the Tar and Feather division as the fierce rivalry between Strong Bad's Awesome Team and #Swole Heats up! However don't count out the Geyser's or The STD Pro's as there is plenty of season left!

Next up we check in with Deep Dark Division where In first place with 7 points and a game and half lead we have Rats off To Ya!!!! Followed by Kingdom of the Misfit with 4, Loki's Toys with 3, and Goth Bondage Party surprisingly int the basement of the division with 2 points. What a turn of events as for the first time since anyone can recall Goth Bondage Party is not dominating their division but is in fact all the way in the bottom! Will they be able to recover in the second half of the season, or is Rats off To Ya!! for real?

Now let's check in with Ale and Anarchy where Das Slaytantic Wehrmacht has 7 points and a game and a half lead, followed by Nekromancies Folly with 4, Springfield Atoms in third with 2 and The Cure with 0. The Story of Ale and Anarchy has been between the two Necromantic Squds. Currently DSW has the lead in the division as well as the victory in the head to head match up. However The Folly have 4 games including another head to head match up with DSW to try and take the division.

Let's take a quick break before we get into more of the standings

You Thought you were going to escape it didn't you

You Thought you were going to escape it didn't you

Welcome back fans let's get back to the action as we take a look at the standings of The Salt Works Division! In first place we have Season 2 defending champions The Dumpster Diving Lizards with 7 points, Street Fighter Elves with 6 points, Speedy Demons in third with 4, and Underworld Blood Wards in fourth with 2. Dumpster Diving Lizards may have thought they could just continue their domination en-route to getting back into the playoffs, but Street Fighter Elves have other things in mind. Despite Losing the head to head match up with The Lizards the Elves are only 1 point behind them with plenty of season left. Speedy Demons and UW: Blood Wars will need to step up and challenge them for their spots.

Now we check in on Europa where in the Old World Division Pax Romana is in first place with 6 points, followed by Orion Magics with 4 points and 74 SPP, and then da wild tings with 4 points and 45 SPP, finally Dangerous Warriors are in the bottom with 1 point. Pax Romana no doubt still remember coming up short last season in the championship match and are looking to take the division to guarantee a spot in the playoffs. However the resurgent Orion Magics and da wild tings arent out of it yet only one game behind the lead in the division.

Our Last Division we have the Beheaded Kings in first place we have Kiss of Death with 7 points, followed by Rockport Redbacks with 4 points, then Lets Go Beserk!!!! with 3, and finally Old Orleans Saints 2 with 2. Kiss of Death are the only team to have earned a spot in the playoffs but were unable to attend to to a visa issue with their beast-man. But no fear that issue has been resolved and now they are looking to keep on their pace to take the division and get into the playoffs and show that they are actually the best team in NBP. Not content to take a backseat the Rockport Redbacks have not given up, picking up a win recently to put them with a shot of the division with flawless play down the second half of the season.

Now that have recapped the standings lets take a look at how the teams stack up if we list all 24 teams by overall points and then by SPP!

Team Points SPP

1.Rats off to Ya 7 73

2.Das S. Wehrmacht 7 59

3.Kiss of Death 7 58

4.D.D. Lizards 7 55

5.Street Fighter Elves 6 63

6.Pax Romana 6 51

7.SBAT 5 67

8.Orion Magics 4 74

9.Rockport Redbacks 4 60

10.Kingdom of Misfit 4 60

11.#Swole 4 59

12.N.Folly 4 49

13.Stinking Geysers 4 47

14.da wild tings 4 45

15.Speedy Demons 4 42

16.Lets Go Beserk!!! 3 49

17.STD Pros 3 42

18.Loki's Toys 3 41

19.Springfield Atoms 2 57

20.G Bondage Party 2 51

21.Old Orleans Saints 2 45

22.UW:Blood Wars 2 39

23.Dangerous Warriors 1 57

24.The Cure 0 26

So if we take a look at that list we can see if the playoffs were to be held today the 8 teams that would qualify would be Rats off To Ya!!!, Das Slaytanic Wehrmacht, Kiss of Death, Pax Romana, Strong Bad's Awesome Team, Dumpster Diving Lizards, with the Wild Card Teams of Street Fighter Elves and Orion Magics!! Of course we have a whole second half of season to play so who knows what will happen!

That does it for me folks let's send it back over to Crypt!

I am forever your host Crypt Collinsworth and I've got the usual gang of miscreants with me this week to bring you all the exciting and bloody action for Nuffle Be Praised's Pro League!

We are wrapping up the last week of division match ups before next week where we move to our inter-divisional Intraconference Match ups! We had match recaps for you, our weekly spotlight on the players of the week, and our blood dripped injury report featuring the bloodiest game of the week!

Let's kick things off with our match recaps and send it over to that devilishly debonair corpse himself Mr. Ronnie Rott!

Voted handsomest of all the rotting corpses 4 years running!

Voted handsomest of all the rotting corpses 4 years running!

Thank you for that wonderfully warm introduction Crypt! Can you feel the excitement blood bowl fans? It's time for the week three match recaps! As Crypt said these matches represent the last of the division match ups before we go into our Intraconference matches in week 4 and week 5!

Let's start off our coverage in our Eastern Conference in the Tar and Feather Division! Our first match up featured First Place Strong Bad's Awesome team taking on The STD Pros. In a match that pitted chaos warrior vs nurgle warrior and beastman vs pestigor, both teams left it all out there on the pitch; however a late game miscalculation by Strong Bad's Awesome Team allowed The STD Pros Pestigor to go for it all and score on turn 16 with two go for its deadlocking the game in a 1 to 1 tie.

In the other match up of Tar and Feather, 2 time division champion #Swole; trying to rebound from a rough start to the season took on The Stinking Geysers a team hoping to put together a solid game and pick up the win themselves. In the classic Orcs vs Dwarf match up neither team was able to control the pitch long enough to pick up the decisive score, ending in a 1 to 1 tie.

Now we hop over to Deep Dark where Loki's Toys took on Kingdom of The Misfits. It was not a stellar outing for the Norse Squad as Loki's Toys struggled to keep their players on the pitch against the Misfits, in the end The Bretonnian Bullies had picked up the win with a crushing 3 to 0 score.

The Yhetee went out very early in the match up.

Next up Those Verminous Rats of government Rats Off to Ya!! took on those leather clad weirdos of pian The Goth Bondage Party. In a bloody and hyper-competitive match up, Goth Bondage Party gave up their comepetitive advantage to head hunt rats instead of safeguarding the touchdown, turning a sure 2 to 1 win into a 1 to 1 tie.

You may not be able to see it but that is actually a dub-skull situation without a re-roll on turn 16.

Let's head over to the Western Conference and stop in Ale and Anarchy Division as The Cure took on Springfield Atoms. Both teams were hopping to pick up their first victory of the season to build momentum and avoid the basement of the division. In the end Springfield Atoms wanted it just a bit more, scoring the only touchdown and winning 1 to 0.

Waylan Smithers finally gets to enjoy the spotlight.

Our other match of Ale and Anarchy was a showdown between Necromantic Teams as Nekromancie's Folly took on Das Slaytanic Wehermacht. The Story of the match was The Folly's star Werewolf Amaris The Cursed being knocked out early in the match. Without their star mighty blow Pile on player, The Folly's couldn't match firepower with The Wehrmacht Losing 2 to 0.

The vantage point Amaris The Cursed had as the fans stomped him into unconsciousness.

Now we check out Salt Works where our first match up was clash between potential first place teams as 2 and 0 Street Fighter Elves took on 2 and 0 Season 2 Champion Dumpster Diving Lizards. Despite the fact that Street Figher Elves had a sound strategy going in, including head hunting Gristle McThornbody Nuffle just was not on their side as Stimee Special after Stimee Special limited The Elves options against a formdible Lizardman team. In the end The Dumpster Diving Lizards won 2 to 0 and took sole control of The Salt Works Division.

In our last match up of the Western Conference Underworld Blood Wars took on Speedy Demons. Another case of both teams looking for their first wins. Speedy Demons just edged out Blood Wars took win the match 2 to 1 and to get a victory on the board.

Let's check out the action across the pond as we look into NBP-Europa Conference where our first match is between Orion Magics and Pax Romana. Even though the Magics ended the half with 2 to 0 lead, somehow Pax Romana were able to come back and tie the game as time expired ending 2 to 2.

The Elves scored the first two touchdowns, however they were not the last two touchdowns scored.

In a bloody show of brute force and bad intentions Dangerous Warriors took on da wild tings in the classic Chaos vs Orc showdown. Though neither team seemed particularly concerned with scoring, somehow a touchdown did occur as da wild tings put one on the board to end the match winning 1 to 0.

Moving along we check out the Beheaded Kings division where we saw Kiss of Death take on Old Orleans Saints 2. Kiss of Death were looking to win their third match in a row and show their dominance of the division. Old Orleans Saints 2 wanted to show they are much better than they have been playing and were trying to overcome the injury bug. After the final whistle it was Kiss of Death standing on top winning the match 2 to 1.

The Beastman who scored this touchdown must be around here somewhere.

Finally we have our last match of the week, as Let's Go Beserk!!!! took on The Rockport Redbacks. Both teams have had a rough first few weeks of the season and both were eager to gain the upper hand to regain momentum in the division. In the end the Rockport Redbacks hit significantly harder injuring 5 norse players including killing their Yhetee and winning the match 2 to 1.

Major League Announcement!

Coaches,

Week 4 of Season 3 is in full swing and the league administration would like to thank you all for completing your games in a timely fashion. With the expansion into the America and Europa Proving Grounds, we have 40 coaches in season play. It's no small feat getting 20 games in on a weekly basis and for that we are grateful.  

First things first, let's address league structure. There has been a lot of discussion regarding season 4 and we have come to a decision. NBP-Pro will be adopting a three season cycle, effective immediately. What this means is that the TV cap for season 4 will reset back to 1000 TV. Going forward, we will also be implementing a separate TV cap for mid-season. The league TV caps will be as follows (per 3 season cycle):

  • Season 1 1000 TV - Mid-season cap 1300 TV*
  • Season 2 1350 TV - Mid-season cap 1600 TV*
  • Season 3 1650 TV - Mid-season cap 1800 TV*

*NOTE: This TV cap only applies to teams utilizing mid-season transfers/promotions

Second order of business is the transfer period for season 3. Coaches will now be eligible for two promotions during mid-season break because there will not be a post-season transfer market due to the league reset.  Keep in mind all transfer market rules apply. and all transfers are subject to league approval. The mid-season transfer period will last for two weeks 03 April to 17 April 2017 to accommodate our coaches to have the best promotions the development ladder can offer.

Lastly, at the conclusion of this season we will be implementing a new section of the NBP-Pro league: NBP-Pro Legends. Any team that has participated in a Pro season is eligible to join the Legends structure. Specialty tournaments and events will take place there as well as within the current league structure. We see this as an additional incentive for our Proving Grounds coaches to vie for a Pro slot.

Thanks for being  part of Nuffle Be Praised. Any questions, concerns or comments can be raised directly in the chat or the forums for discussion.
