NBP Proud to Announce Coach's Corner for beginner and intermediate coaches!
Nuffle Be Praised is proud to announce the introduction of the NBP Coach's Corner! A special open ladder competition administered by Season 1 NBP Champion Midway_Monster01 and NBP commissioner CommieCOZY!
What is the Coach's Corner you ask? As us veterans know, Blood Bowl can be a cruel and unforgiving game, and there is nothing more discouraging than trying to learn and improve while having to play games against bad sports, people who may be angered by your new coach status, or oppportunistic coaches who will take advantage of padding their Win/loss ratio at the expense of new coaches.
We here at NBP would like to change that trend. We feel our Blood Bowl community is only as strong as it's players, and that if there were veterans out there willing to coach and assist the new coaches it would make the league experience better for all!
What are some of the features of the coaches corner?
1 on 1 developmental games with NBP Veteran coaches, where they will critique moves, offer guidance and explain the nuances of Blood Bowl.
Assistance with starting team compositions. Which are the best positional choices, how many re-rolls should I take etc?
1 on 1 developmental games with other fresh to Blood Bowl coaches, mentored in real time by NBP Veterans, where Coaches can receive feedback in real time against a live opponent.
Team build Strategies. Sometimes there is nothing harder than trying to decide between what skills to get your players, especially when you are brand new to the sport! Get advice from coaches on what skills to take and when to take them!
Special beginner-only comps and events. Depending on how big the response is to our coach's corner initiative, we may run competitions and events exclusive to the coach's corner!
Finally registration in the coaches corner is open to ALL coaches regardless of skill level, if you want to get better we want to HELP you get better. For our veteran coaches that would to assist the Coach's Corner, please contact CommieCOZY or Midway_Monster01! If you would like to sign up for the Coach's Corner, check out the Season 2 registration sub-forum on the nbp-pro.com forums!
That does it all for this news update, stay tuned next week for the results of the year end voting awards and for a transfer market report, and always remember Praise Nuffle!
