Hey coaches. I come back to BB from a lil break. I'd like to know where's the actual place to play online. I assume Fumbll still the best in term of skills and probably mentality, but i'd like to know where's the major part of the coachs are. I assume BB2 ? Is the game there enjoyable? Or will I meet disapointment. (leavers, lame RNG etc etc...)

Thanks everyone

I'd like to know whether a Magic Porn Cup is a magic cup full of porn, or a regular cup, full of magic porn ... ?

(Edit: yes, I am bored at work .. Razz )

FUMBBL is, as far as I understand, the best implementation of the game.

BB2 has some smaller leagues, few huge leagues (i think one has over 1000 players, few more are talking in multiple hundreds)

I play in one of them that is very active (rebbl, it is divided to 3 time zones each with hundreds of coaches and multiple divisions).

I do play CCL (champ ladder, its kinda like their version of fumbbls "box") but generally i am playing fumbbl for ladder-kind of play. CCL has more concessions than what i get in box (i have gotten like 5 concessions on fumbbls box in 250 games, maybe 10 at most.. i have played maybe 40 games or less at ccl and gotten around same amount of concessions).

Fumbbl also has better options for league admins which means VARIETY in leagues. BB2 dudes try their hardest to come up with unique rulesets but fumbbl takes over with new rosters, modifying how some skills work or even disable them, how inducements work and adding stuff on top of the leagueplays itself (especially i like draft leagues - you get players between seasons that already have skills.. and you can trade players or draftpicks)

So:
- find a league from bb2 if you want to join something big
- join league at fumbbl if you want something more unique or league with a twist
- play fumbbl box (or ranked) if you want to play and improve
- play bb2 CCL if you think you can grind to playoffs (there are prizes, this season gives tickets to world champions where there are even more prizes)

- also rulesets differ a bit, if you like piling on and wizard, play bb2, if you like new mvp rule then play at fumbbl (leagues can also choose old mvp rule).. there are few other differences too.. try and look for discussions about them if you are interested

I think ragequitters in BB2 will annoy you. Not much of that here. There will be more players there, but a lot of them wont be good and may not help you improve. Enjoy FUMBBL!

COL is full of rage quitters, but there's lots to BB2 beyond open matchmaking. To say a lot aren't any good is a bit silly; you have a distribution here on FUMBBL the same as over on BB2 and many play both anyway... Not to say you shouldn't play FUMBBL, by all means play both.

Well, at least we don't suffer much from rage quitters in our distribution. Definitely a few about. I would have thought there would be far more new/casual players there compared to here. Due to people buying the video game as their first experience versus people here being longer time players and tabletoppers. Of course there will be some great players but I doubt the same distribution. If there is a lot of rage quitters there is a lot of bad players.... Didn't the likes of Jimmy and Sage go there and dominate most of their matches easily? And people ask questions here even if they don't play on fumbbl.
More people playing BB is a good thing of course. Bound to be some quality leagues that some people play there due to the graphics etc.

Well i guess i'll stay on Fumbbl for now, and maybe give a shot to BB2 sometimes. I'll investigate to see if there's a good league, with enough player & enough spirit not to leave everygame.

Well to be honest man, you come back here and ask for advice on what amounts to basically leaving the community if the alternative is of a similar level?

I'm not really sure you're going to get anyone to tell you anything positive about BB2 if it means potentially losing a coach.

Not that there is fewer & fewer coachs in fumbbl, seems to be pretty stable since im here. But we're not legion, and games can be difficult to find. I'd honestly just like all BB players to meet in one place, i think it would make the game more enjoyable.

I'd suggest you to wait for sale then.

Leagues i would suggest:
- Rebbl (has sub-leagues for US, europe+africa and oceania)
- OCC
- TBBL
- BBtactics

I think french and german leagues have quite big coach account on their leagues too. I think i have heard name "BLUA" few times and i kinda know the admin - nice fellow.

I know UKBBL is a thing but i think they have communication issues and some other stuff going on.. they have many coaches but heavy suggest you to use their site to communicate with your opponent (whereas many of those other leagues have multiple places and ways to reach your oppo of that round.. many using discord).

Feel free to find any league i didn't mention or more info about the ones i suggested ^^

And welcome to fumbbl. Have a nice games!

edit: from here you can actually look and see for bigger leagues.. i know it doesn't say which are bigger and which aren't BUT look how many tickets each one has.. more tickets meant more coaches (they are shared by population).. skip the world cup stuff unless you think you can grind to qualify to Champ Ladder playoffs AND reach top 4.. but that page i found is best place to look out for leagues: https://forums.focus-home.com/topic/5882/blood-bowl-2-world-cup-2018-announcement

editedit: added bbtactics league to list

Editeditedit: Ragequitters in bb2 are only ladder problem (open ladder, champ ladder.. maybe anarchy ladder.. not sure since i haven't played that nor have i heard others play it) but leagues rarely tolerate conceding or ragequitting (i think legal conceding is fine but you need to have only 1 or 2 dudes for LOS in order that to happen and you would have to do it during your setup) and i'm not sure if gamecode understands its legal at that point (so it might fire your 51+ spp player/s)
