Just about half way through Season 10 and the Big O has been a wild journey so far. Older teams are showing signs of falling as newer, hungry teams rise up to replace them. This is the story so far for Big O Divisions 1

 


The Rat Way To Go (Skaven 1930) - by JamusMcgamus

Current Record 1st 6-0-0 (+6)

Story So Far

Undefeated, the only coach with a flawless record in Division 1. With Jamus's bench starting to show some wear & tear it'll be interesting to see how long his record will remain spotless

Notable Additions/Losses:

Star import - Vice President Crazy Jim only lasted 3 games before suffering an Agility bust. With some heavy bash games to come, the VP may not be long for this world.

Best Result So Far

vs School of Dance (Week 1)

Next Four Games

Old Hobart Honeybadgers, Bash Incorporated, The Phobias Reborn, Children of Ymir

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Pre-Season the experts had Jamus around the 3rd - 5th mark and at this time that's looking like the worst case. Key wins against Elven rivals in the first month is an impressive result and being honest, the last few danger games will be coming within the next month. If the team holds together he shouldn't lose more than 1-2 games. (1st - 3rd)

School of Dance (Wood Elves 1960) - by Morka

Current Record 2nd 5-0-1 (+8)

Story So Far

Right in the hunt for Top Spot, with his only loss coming to the undefeated Rat Way To Go. Managed to finally defeat PapaNasty for the first time in Week 3

Notable Additions/Losses:

Incredibly, Morka's School of Dance have been avoiding any permanent damage (barring several close calls with Star Wardancer - Rudolf Nureyev), with 7 Deaths being suffered by Loners and would be Longstriders. Freshly minted Legends - Lird'nor picking up Jump Up to complete the POMB Elf Dream and MJ collecting Pass Block. Michael Flatley looking like a future player to watch, grabbing Guard on the fresh Catcher

Best Result So Far

vs Bash Incorpated (Week 3)

Next Four Games

Children of Ymir, The Phobias Reborn, Doomed Witches, Warc Machine III

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Listed as a wild card by experts, his run so far has been fantastic. Considering that his only loss came to the unbeating Skaven team, Morka's building for a strong run in Season 10. His next 4 games he'll probably start as the favourite - win at least 3 those and he'll have his playoff ticket locked before his brutal run home. (1st - 3rd)

Shadowhill Cowboys (Dark Elves 1670) - by Sandune

Current Record 3rd 4-1-1 (+5)

Story So Far

For the first time in a long, long time Sandune's boys have a full team, so it's no surprise to see yet another strong season for the Cowboys. Much like Morka their only loss coming to Jamus's Rat Way To Go

Notable Additions/Losses:

Buisness as usual for Sandune. Couple of fresh Blitzers bought, niggled and replaced. Carnagella, the sole Witch Elf picking up MA 8 only to be Niggled in the very next game. Ultil (POMB Blitzer) looking like the shinning light for future development

Best Result So Far

vs Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Bash Incorporated, Doomed Witches, Muten Roshi's Bear School, Old Hobart Honeybadgers

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

A massive grudge match against PapaNasty kicks off a big month for Sandune. If he can post wins against Papa, Jape and Munkeychunks then he should be locked into playoffs as expected (1st - 5th)

The Phobias Reborn! (Undead 2080) - by Werecaster

Current Record 4th 2-3-1 (+2)

Story So Far

After losing to The Arcana in Week 1, The Phobias haven't suffered a loss since. Still with 3 Draws left on the board, Werecaster surely can't help but think what could of been

Notable Additions/Losses:

Aside from a few new trophies, Werecaster's team looks in good shape barring two nasty injuries - a STR bust on Trypanophobia (MA 8, Blodge, Sure Hands, Sprint/Sure Feet Ghoul) and now an AV bust on Xenophobia, his Frenzy Wight.

Best Result So Far

vs Doomed Witches (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Warc Machine III, School of Dance, The Rat Way To Go, Catastrophy

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

A very impressive start so far, but the next four games for Werecaster are make or break - Couple bash teams in Warc Machine III and Catastrophy along with league leaders the Rat Way To Go and White Line. These 4 games will define his season. (4th - 8th)

The Arcana (Pro Elves 1780) - by Tommo

Current Record 5th 3-0-3 (+2)

Story So Far

Bit of a mixed bag for Tommo so far - posting quality wins against Jape and Werecaster but dropping a cruical game against Sandune.

Notable Additions/Losses:

Tommo's massive bench has been trimmed and rebuilt but the core remains healthy. All eyes remain on The Moon Reversed (MB, Block Catcher) as he gets closer to levelling

Best Result So Far

vs Doomed Witches (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD, WesC's Wolves, Bash Incorporated, Muten Roshi's Bear School

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Right now The Arcana is in the hunt for a playoff spot and with several winnable games coming over the horizon we could see The Aracana make their 3rd playoffs (2nd - 6th)

Bash Incorporated (Orcs 1820) - by PapaNasty

Current Record 6th 2-3-1 (+1)

Story So Far

A tough, grinding season so far for Bash Incorporated has left them vulnerable. Games that in seasons past they would of won have turned into tough losses to younger, stronger teams.

Notable Additions/Losses:

Father time is catching up to PapaNasty - his remaining legends are accumulating perms (Ugrnee, Graoth both AV 8, Morgru now MA 4). On a brighter note, the new blitzer - Bobby Bash is looking to make his mark in the up coming weeks

Best Result So Far

vs Old Hobart Honeybadgers (Week 2)

Next Four Games

Shadowhill Cowboys, The Rat Way To Go, The Arcana, WesC's Wolves

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

At the time of this writing, Papa's Orcs are sitting in 6th spot. But with a brutal month ahead there's a strong chance they won't remain here unless we see the Bash Inc of old. (4th - 8th)

WesC's Wolves (Necromantic 1810) - by WesleyC

Current Record 7th 2-2-2 (-1)

Story So Far

A shock loss to The Phobias Reborn in Week 3 sent WesC's Wolves into a tailspin, that now heading into Week 7 they're able to rebound from.

Notable Additions/Losses:

Disaster struck in Week 3 - WesC's Wolves lost future star wolf, PepeMonster 2nd (Block, MB, Tackle) AND a terrible injury to star lynchpin - Big Bad Borris, who took an AV bust

Best Result So Far

vs Warc Machine III (Week 2)

Next Four Games

Doomed Witches, The Arcana, Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD, Bash Incorporated

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Sitting mid-table with games against similar placed rivals to come. The biggest issue lies with both Wolves - Leeroy Jenkins Jr and PepeMonster the IV. Only 1 level between the two and both will be needed if Wes is planning on a playoff return in Season 10 (6th - 10th)

Warc Machine III (Orcs 2000) - by Lyskaris

Current Record 8th 2-1-3 (-3)

Story So Far

After a disasterous first 3 games, the Warc Machine III is on the rebound, posting quality wins over Tommo and Durteef

Notable Additions/Losses:

Two words - Vampire Orc. Leftie Leroy III has perhaps arrived just in time to save the Warc Machine III's season

Best Result So Far

vs The Arcana (Week 4)

Next Four Games

The Phobias Reborn, Muten Roshi's Bear School, Children of Ymir, School of Dance

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Mid table was expected, and mid table is what they are. A softer draw awaits the Orcs that they'll need to win most of, if there's any hope of playoffs (6th - 10th)

Catastrophy (Chaos 2020) - by Findeco

Current Record 9th 1-3-2 (-1)

Story So Far

Missed opportunies. There has been too many games this season that Catastrophy has left behind or had drawn up on them. Convert those chances and Findeco's up in the Top 3

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 5 saw the arrival of Garfields' heir apparent - Claire, picking up Block just in before a cruial game against WesC

Best Result So Far

vs Warc Machine III (Week 1)

Next Four Games

Muten Roshi's Bear School, Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD, Old Hobart Honeybadgers, The Phobias Reborn

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Finedco has been playing rather well in Season 10, just not getting the fruits of his labour.... yet. If he can keep his current form up, we might have ourselves a late bolter in the homestrech (4th - 11th)

Doomed Witches (Dark Elves 1760) - by JapeNZ

Current Record 10th 2-0-4 (-5)

Story So Far

After enduring a brutal first half of Season 10, Jape finds himself in the unfamiliar position as hunter rather than the hunted

Notable Additions/Losses:

It was brewing for awhile and Week 4 all the fears of a tv trim for the Doom Witches came to head. From 14 players now down to 7. Star sacker Althriorn (Agi 5, Blodgestep, Leap, Strip Ball) now Niggled, Naltil dead and 2/3rds of his Guard Lineman gone.

Best Result So Far

vs Muten Roshi's Bear School (Week 1)

Next Four Games

WesC's Wolves, Shadowhill Cowboys, School of Dance, Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Season 10 started in fine form for the pre-season favourites but since his win over the Children of Ymir in Week 2, the Doom Witches have been winless. There's still time to right the ship and take back control of his season, though he'll have to do it soon or else he'll be left on the outside looking in (2nd - 10th)

Old Hobart Honeybadgers (High Elves 1840) - by MunkeyChunks

Current Record 11th 1-2-3 (-1)

Story So Far

The Badgers continue to be the most unprediable team to try to bet on, much to the fury of their fans. Dropping games that look like certainies, whilst winning games they but all rights had no chance of. A 4-1 domination of Doomed Witches being the highlight so far

Notable Additions/Losses:

What's worse than a legendary MA 10 Catcher? His apprentice! Captain Zoom, after arriving as a MA 9 import naturally aquired MA 10. On a ligher not, Garnon Vanval continues to be battered, picking up a MA bust so far

Best Result So Far

vs Doomed Witches (Week 3)

Next Four Games

The Rat Way To Go, Children of Ymir, Catastrophy, Shadowhill Cowboys

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

With only 1 win so far, there's a far arguement that it may be too much of an ask for the Badgers to claw their way into contention. However a win over league leaders - The Rat Way To Go next week will go along way to making it (4th - 12th)

Muten Roshi's Bear School (Kislev 1450) - by Krusader

Current Record 12th 1-2-3 (-2)

Story So Far

The team is in shambles, a shell of it's past glory. Several games snatched away at the last moment. Season 10 has been one for Krusader and Muten Roshi's Bear School to forget

Notable Additions/Losses:

Two horrific games (vs Bash Incorporated and Rat Way To Go) has gutted the once stacked Kislev team. Gone is STR 4 star Son Goku, MA 8 Catcher Raditz and several other replacement Blitzers. Tarble (Blodgestep, Fend, Sure Hands) remains on borrowed time, AV busted at AV6

Best Result So Far

vs Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD (Week 3)

Next Four Games

Catastrophy, Warc Machine III, Shadowhill Cowboys, The Arcana

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Honestly, with the state of the team right now along with a tough draw ahead, I can't see the kislev winning more than 3-4 games for the season. Hell if the rate of retirees and death remain consistant, we might be seeing the last of the Bear School (10th - 14th)

Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD (Lizards 1810) - by Durteef Basha

Current Record 13th 1-2-3 (-4)

Story So Far

Much like the Honey Badgers, the Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD appeal to be dropping games and now find themselves perhaps too far back to feature in this season's playoffs

Notable Additions/Losses:

Not much new or lost from the Lounge Lizards (barring nameless rookie skinks) apart from one huge upgrade - Tyrannosaurus Ted now is a Blodgigor! With Stand Firm surely on the horizian, Ted will be a massive wall for Durteef's opponents to deal with

Best Result So Far

vs Old Hobart Honeybadgers (Week 4)

Next Four Games

The Arcana, Catastrophy, WesC's Wolves, Doomed Witches

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Week 7 will be either the end of Durteef's playoff hopes or the restart his team needs. A mammoth clash between himself and Tommo will define both of their seasons (7th - 12th)

Children of Ymir (Dwarves 2260) - by eFTy

Current Record 14th 0-1-5 (-7)

Story So Far

Winless so far but there's signs of life still within the Children of Ymir. Yet another +STR longbeard has arrived and could assume the role of spoiler for the rest of the teams he plays this season

Notable Additions/Losses:

Nothing changed from Big O's resident bloaty Dwarfs. Couple of near careering ending Agi busts on Longbeards aside, the Children of Ymir still are as menacing as they come

Best Result So Far

N/A - Coming Soon

Next Four Games

School of Dance, Old Hobart Honeybadgers, Warc Machine III, The Rat Way To Go

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Predicted as a wildcard and so far Season 10 has been a fizzler. We'll be watching to see how eFTy finishes this season out (12th - 14th)



The One True Path (Chaos 1910) - by James Typhoon

Current Record 1st 5-0-1 (+4)

Story So Far

A fantastic season for the returning chaos, posting a dominate 1st half of the season. The irony has not been lost that in spite of his long-term goal of removing Orcs from Div 1, his only loss so far came at the hands of fellow Orc team, Da Kahoonaz

Notable Additions/Losses:

No real major changes to The One True Path apart from some extra killing power with Klint (Block, MB, Tackle) picking up Claw.

Best Result So Far

vs Bulldozerz (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Masters of the Underverce, Trump's Chumps, Sodai Senlin, Fork Tonnes

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

We had pencilled in the One True Path for a mid-pack finish, basing from their last two season's performances - clearly we were wrong. Jame's boys are looking like the real deal in Season 10 (1st - 3rd)

The Scuffling Dead (Necromantic 1610) - by Serj

Current Record 2nd 4-1-1 (+6)

Story So Far

Out of the shadows and into the light, Serj and The Scuffling Dead have layed claim to being the premier Necromantic team of the Big O. His destruction of rival Djoolyurn in Week 1 set the tone for the Season

Notable Additions/Losses:

Despite being the proud owner of the most reliable Regen across the Big O, they couldn't save Gregor (Block/Guard Flesh Golem) from a career ending STR bust

Best Result So Far

vs Never Swapping (Week 1)

Next Four Games

The Nurgtown Crooners, Masters of the Underverce, Bulldoserz, The Carroburg Comets

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Yet another surprise packet, Serj has already exceeded expectations with a dominate 1st half. The question remains if he can maintain the momentum into a playoff debut (1st - 5th)

Bulldoserz (Chaos Dwarves 1790) - by Grod

Current Record 3rd 3-2-1 (+5)

Story So Far

The Bulldoserz have been the real surprise packet of Division 2 this season. His only loss coming from the league leaders, One True Path

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 6 saw the arrival of Zhairahk Rocknails - Grod's 1st Claw Blocker, much to the delight of the rest of the division

Best Result So Far

vs The Nurgtown Crooners (Week 2)

Next Four Games

The Carroburg Comets, Fork Tonnes, The Scuffling Dead, Da Kahoonaz

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

And the hits keep on coming - Straight from the furthest left part of fields, the Bulldozers are blitzing through Division 2. Games against close placed rivals - The Scuffling Dead and Da Kahoonazs later in the month will be of great intertest (2nd - 8th)

Sassy Soviets (Kislev 1880) - by Swagtusk

Current Record 4th 3-2-1 (+1)

Story So Far

Solid start so far for the Sassy Soviets. The team has remained healthy (unlike any other Kislev team in the Big O) and looks primed to for a big 2nd half

Notable Additions/Losses:

Despite a couple of bruising games, the Soviets remain in good health. Gennady Yanayev (STR 4, Wrestle Strip Lineman) and Ivan the Terrible (Blodgestep, Tackle, Guard Blitzer) remain as Swag's two most important players

Best Result So Far

vs Trump's Chumps (Week 1)

Next Four Games

Da Kahoonaz, The Nurgtown Crooners, Leaping Lizardss, Never Swapping

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

One of the few pre-season favourites to not be suffering "the experts curse" - The Sassy Soviets's next 4 games are feature would be contenders and a good result from those might be enough to secure his playoff spot already (2nd - 5th)

Da Kahoonaz (Orcs 1600) - by anteaterReborn

Current Record 5th 3-1-2 (+1)

Story So Far

Despite some pre-season worries, Da Kahoonaz has adapted to Division 2 and picked up where he left off from last season

Notable Additions/Losses:

A niggling injury in Week 6 saw the retirement of Mikey II (Guard, Tackle Blitzer), though the hearty Orcs remained healthy. Steve II (Agi 4, Guard, Sure Hands) still remains as Da Kahoonaz's MVP

Best Result So Far

vs The One True Path (Week 3)

Next Four Games

Sassy Soviets, Never Swapping, Masters of the Underverce, Bulldoserz

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Much like his fellow ex-Division 4 from Season 9, Da Kahoonaz's have hit the ground running and don't look a step out of place. A return visit to playoffs remains on the cards (2nd - 6th)

Trump's Chumps (Nurgle 2000) - by Yabby69

Current Record 6th 2-3-1 (+1)

Story So Far

An strong season so far for 1/3rd of the Unhappy Nurgle Triad. After losing in Week 1 to reknown Nurgle-Haters, the Sassy Soviets, the Chumps haven't lost a game since

Notable Additions/Losses:

Dead Rotters aside (who care's, they're not real people) Yabby's been able to gain much needed development on his Warriors and Pestigors

Best Result So Far

vs Da Kahoonaz (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Faces of 4chan, The One True Path, The Nurgtown Crooners, Sodai Senlin

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

We originally thought that Trump's Chumps would have struggled this season, being the less developed of 3 Nurgle teams in the division - but that is not the case. Whether it's the start of a comeback or the floodwaters about to burst through the dam, the two Nurgle Mirrors this month will hold all answers (4th - 10th)

Never Swapping (Necromantic 1610) - by Djoolyurn

Current Record 7th 2-2-2 (+2)

Story So Far

Season 10 has been a distaster for Never Swapping - the pre-season favourites hemorrhaging star players and dropping games to rivals old and new

Notable Additions/Losses:

The only thing that matters is the following two dead players - Runn (Blodge, Tackle, MB, Dauntless Wolf) and Around (another Blodge, Tackle, MB, Dauntless Wolf), having died in Week 1 and Week 6 respectively

Best Result So Far

vs The Carroburg Comets (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Sodai Senlin, Da Kahoonaz, Faces of 4chan, Sassy Soviets

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

To call it a curse would be unfair to the teams that have taken points from Never Swapping, but that said it's almost supernatural to see such a prolific team saddled this early on (3rd - 10th)

The Nurgtown Crooners (Nurgle 1880) - by Cynergy

Current Record 8th 2-1-3 (-1)

Story So Far

A mixed bag for the Crooners, as a handful of shock losses saw their good start to the season gone, falling to the middle of the pack

Notable Additions/Losses:

There was a hell of a scare sent through the Crooner's camp when star Pestigor Scabbey Road (Agi 5, Block, Sure Hands, Tackle) when down with a niggle in Week 2 againt the Bulldozers. Needless to say he's still kicking and up to his own tricks

Best Result So Far

vs Da Kahoonaz (Week 4)

Next Four Games

The Scuffling Dead, Sassy Soviets, Trump's Chumps, Leaping Lizardss

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

The show's not over for the Nurgtown Crooners as are still in the fight despite a sluggish start to Season 10. They control their own destiny with massive games coming up over the next month (3rd - 10th)

Faces of 4chan (Nurgle 1790) - by Darkness

Current Record 9th 2-1-3 (-1)

Story So Far

Not a bad start for Darkness, with the Faces of 4chan's 3 all coming to pre-season fancies. There's still plenty of time (and murder) left for them

Notable Additions/Losses:

Darkness loomed over the Faces of 4chan in Week 2 (Starting to look like an unlucky week for Nurgle) when/fit/ (Agi 5, MA 7, STR 4 Sure Hands Pestigor) was straight killed by the One True Path. A unique player, /fit/ has proven so far to be irreplaceable

Best Result So Far

vs Sassy Soviets (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Trump's Chumps, Leaping Lizardss, Never Swapping, Masters of the Underverce

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

The Faces of 4Chan are right about were we had predicted them to be - mid-table and terrorising every opponent they've faced. (7th - 12th)

Masters of the Underverce (Underworld 1430) - by Yasmir

Current Record 10th 2-0-4 (-2)

Story So Far

A great start for the Yasmir's masters quickly turned into a nightmare, with the loss of inspirational (and this author's personal favourite) He-Rat. As expected, without their leader, their record plummeted - but have faith, as He-Rat II is here!

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 2 struck again! This time claiming the undisputed star - He-Rat (Claw POMB Blitzer) struck down in his prime by Leaping Lizards of all things

Best Result So Far

vs The Nurgtown Crooners (Week 3)

Next Four Games

The One True Path, The Scuffling Dead, Da Kahoonaz, Faces of 4chan

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

The next three games will decide the future (in more ways than one) for He-Rat II and the Masters of the Underverce. All three are amongst the Top 4, all 3 need to be beaten to remain relevant (4th - 12th)

The Carroburg Comets (Human 1830) - by Road Warrior

Current Record 11th 1-3-2 (-4)

Story So Far

A handful of draws to quality teams along with two tough losses, Road Warrior's humans aren't off to the best of starts but doesn't mean they're push-overs

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 5 we said goodbye to Petr Kondobert (Blodge, Guard, MB, Tackle Blitzer), another victim to those dastardly Leaping Lizards! On a much lighter note, Ricardo Cavita (STR 4, Block Lineman) looks like a future player for the Comets

Best Result So Far

vs Leaping Lizardss (Week 5)

Next Four Games

Bulldoserz, Sodai Senlin, Fork Tonnes, The Scuffling Dead

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

The Carroburg Comets are much better than their record suggests and with a couple winnable games ahead, a late charge isn't out of the question (6th - 12th)

Leaping Lizardss (Lizards 1920) - by Seriasssam

Current Record 12th 1-2-3 (-2)

Story So Far

What they've lack in results, they've made up for in the kill count. The Leaping Lizards have already faced most of the early league leaders and are primed for a strong run

Notable Additions/Losses:

Murderer of stars, the Leaping Lizards ironically have yet to experience any major injuries in Season 10. Worst yet, El Be Eme III (Agi 5, Sidestep, Sprint, Sure Feet Skink) still lives!

Best Result So Far

vs Masters of the Underverce (Week 2)

Next Four Games

Fork Tonnes, Faces of 4chan, Sassy Soviets, The Nurgtown Crooners

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Missed opportunities and missed games in Week 6 & 7 should be the end of the Leaping Lizards playoff hopes in Season 10 - barring shenanigans of course. Then again, improbably isn't impossible (6th - 12th)

Sodai Senlin (Amazon 1360) - by Zht Wu

Current Record 13th 1-2-3 (-4)

Story So Far

Division 2 for Zht Wu's ladies have been as unforgiving as advertised. That said, their tough draw has done them no favours neither

Notable Additions/Losses:

Countless of deaths and retirements. Roxanna and Zara both are regular features of the battling side this season. Daintree II (Blodge, MB, Tackle, JU Blitzer) & Schwarzwald (Blodge, Guard, SF Blitzer) remain the what's left of the team

Best Result So Far

vs Masters of the Underverce (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Never Swapping, The Carroburg Comets, The One True Path, Trump's Chumps

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

It's been a brutal season for the sole Amazons in the Big O - Sodai Senlin's lack of player development and unrelenting attrition endured so obvious. Still they remain more than capable of playing spoiler for the rest of the division (8th - 12th)

Fork Tonnes (Lizards 1340) - by Cat Attack Man

Current Record 14th 0-2-4 (-6)

Story So Far

Winless to date, Season 10 was always expected to be an uphill battle for the lizards. Though a couple of late Draws shows that there's still life within

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 6 perhap saw the final straw that broke the lizard's back - a MA bust to star skink, Stormtrooper 3

Best Result So Far

N/A - Coming Soon

Next Four Games

Leaping Lizardss, Bulldoserz, The Carroburg Comets, The One True Path

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Sometimes it's bad luck, sometimes the game is just rigged from the start. Fork Tonnes came into Season 10 battered from the Open Invitational and has remained battered. His shinning light - Stormtrooper 3 now potentially retired, there's a strong chance that this will be their last season (12th - 14th)



Bright Moon Poets (Necromantic 1780) - by Alpaca Rider

Current Record 1st 4-2-0 (+5)

Story So Far

Phenomenal season so far for the Bright Moon Poets, having yet to taste defeat. A blockbuster awaits them between The Way of the Leaf and themselves

Notable Additions/Losses:

The loss of Denis - the star Blodge/MB Werewolf in Week 6 is a massive blow to the Bright Moon Poets playoff hopes. It'll be up to his partner in crime - Lupino to carry the load into the Swiss

Best Result So Far

vs Saturday Nyght Femur (Week 1)

Next Four Games

The Way of the Leaf

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Pleasantly surprised how well Alpaca Rider's gone so far this season. It'll be interesting to see if he can maintain is top spot in the Swiss rematches to come (1st - 3rd)

The Way of the Leaf (Halflings 990) - by Chubberson

Current Record 2nd 4-1-1 (+4)

Story So Far

Chubberson's season was already a success by Round 3 - having beaten Monty's Tosspots and upseting the Celebrity Veg 2.0. However the fact that The Way of the Leaf has been unbeaten since Week 1 is an incredible feat and next week's game is the chance to head into the Swiss LEADING Division 3

Notable Additions/Losses:

In a team designed to keep tv low, there will always be one player that is the exception to the rule- The Black Wind. Now featuring Catch along with his Agi 4, Sprint and Sure Feet, Chubberson's biggest weapon remains one of his smallest players

Best Result So Far

vs Celebrity Veg 2.0 (Week 2)

Next Four Games

Bright Moon Poets

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Outstanding season so far, we'll be cheering on the halflings and see if Chubberson can bring home the Stunty Cup for the 2nd Season in a row (1st - 3rd)

Winged Centaurs (Chaos Dwarves 1650) - by AussieViking

Current Record 3rd 2-3-1 (+5)

Story So Far

A solid debut season so far for the Winged Centaurs, though the loss of his star killer in Week 4 must of hurt

Notable Additions/Losses:

The retirement of Martain Tacklebreaker (to Halfings no less!) remains the lowest point for the Winged Centaurs this season and his replacement appears to still be a fair distance away

Best Result So Far

vs Celebrity Veg 2.0 (Week 3)

Next Four Games

Saturday Nyght Femur

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

At the moment, we were on the money with our call, though if AussieViking can start turning those draws into wins the sky is the limit (1st - 4th)

Saturday Nyght Femur (Undead 1760) - by Fyrs Yced

Current Record 4th 2-1-3 (0)

Story So Far

A pre-season favourite, the Saturday Nyght Femur seems to have underperformed so far in Season 10. However the team is still capable of recovering in time

Notable Additions/Losses:

Week 6 saw the loss of import - Turan, the STR 4 Wrestle Skeleton. Still boosting a gluteny of Guard, we'll see how Fyrs handles without him

Best Result So Far

vs Cyrus's Viruses (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Winged Centaurs

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

In contrast to our early calls, it's looking more and more likely that Fyrs and the Sturday Nyght Femurs will not be featuring among the leaders of Division 3. Still plenty of time to change that but a big game against the Wing Centaurs next week will be the next test (3rd - 6th)

Cyrus's Viruses (Nurgle 1180) - by G-Doggidy

Current Record 5th 2-1-3 (-2)

Story So Far

Two steps forward, one step back. Early success for G-Doggidy has been... pleasanty surprising as 2nd season Nurgle were expected to struggle early. However any positives quicked faded with a handful of death/retired star players

Notable Additions/Losses:

With deaths/retirements to key positionals: Brazen Goatrot (Agi 4, Block, Sure Hands) and Cephalic Postulosis (Block, Claw Warrior) G-Doggidy finds himself in the unenviable task of rebuilding those players

Best Result So Far

vs The Way of the Leaf (Week 1)

Next Four Games

Celebrity Veg 2.0

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

With the loss of much of his development, the rest of Season 10 will be a struggle and will most likely see Cyrus's Viruses tumble down the ladder (4th - 8th)

Gods of Fate (High Elves 1630) - by TheUltimoBumm

Current Record 6th 1-3-2 (-1)

Story So Far

The Gods of Fate have been playing well in Season 10, just are unable to capitalise and finish games.

Notable Additions/Losses:

The Gods of Fate have remained relatively healthy and as a result his team boasts several star players. Laima (Dodge, STR 4 Catcher), Fortuna (Dodge, MA 9, Guard Catcher) and Lady Luck (Blodge, POMB Blitzer) all from the nucleus of a promising High Elf team in the future

Best Result So Far

vs Cyrus's Viruses (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Monty's Tosspots

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

The Gods of Fate as a whole are fantastic, but are realistically another half season away from completing for a Division title - look for the Elves to finish Season 10 strong as they build for a breakout Season 11

Celebrity Veg 2.0 (Kislev 1350) - by DestructionDarb

Current Record 7th 1-3-2 (-2)

Story So Far

Season 10 has so far been one to forget for the Celebrity Veg 2.0. Couple of player losses along with shock results and frustrating draws, Darby will have his back to the wall for the 2nd half of the season

Notable Additions/Losses:

Looking at the Celebrity Veg 2.0, the core of the team still looks in great shape despite a few player deaths. Zac Safron (Block, MB, Tackle, Agi 4 Blitzer) and Jamie Leek Curtis (STR 4, Wrestle Lineman) still pose a threat to any team

Best Result So Far

vs Saturday Nyght Femur (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Cyrus's Viruses

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Despite a lackluster 1st half, we still believe in Celebrity Veg 2.0. In recent weeks they appear to be rebounding into form and look set to storm home in the 2nd half (2nd - 5th)

Monty's Tosspots (Halflings 1350) - by Skyblue Monty

Current Record 8th 0-1-5 (-9)

Story So Far

A winless season for the original Halflings in the Big O, with the worst defeating coming from the Fling Mirror in week 3

Notable Additions/Losses:

In Week 6 the darkest day in Big O happened - Horatio Hornblower, the legendary star halfing suffered a STR bust. At this time, he's still actively listed but his role surely been changed

Best Result So Far

N/A - Coming Soon

Next Four Games

Gods of Fate

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

In a repeat of last season, it's looking more likely that the Tosspots will be anchored at the bottom on the ladder. There'll be chances to change this but it's looking unlikely (6th - 8th)



Chaos from Laos (Chaos 1600) - by rsVordoca

Current Record 1st 5-0-1 (+10)

Story So Far

After a false start in Week 1 (Loss to Liverfull), Vordoca's Chaos from Laos have been unstoppable - Only conceding 2 TD's since while manaing to smash 13 of their own!

Notable Additions/Losses:

Hard to go past Bounnhang Vorachith (Claw POMB, Jugg, Guard)- the star Minotaur has been causing nightmares for the rest of the divison, average 2 casualties per game (12 over 6 games). Worth shouting out Thongloun Sisoulith (STR 5 Block Warrior) and Admiral Laos (MA 6, Agi 5 Warrior) as potential star players in the making

Best Result So Far

vs Clash of Comrades (Week 4)

Next Four Games

Bar Room Blusterers

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Boy, we didn't this one coming. rsVordcoa just blitzing his way through the first half of the season. With a showdown vs 3rd the placed Bar Room Blusterers next week, it'll be interesting to see if he can hold top spot heading into the Swiss (1st - 3rd)

Clash of Comrades (Kislev 1720) - by Walkerthon

Current Record 2nd 3-2-1 (+6)

Story So Far

Walker's season so far has been a mixed bag. A rough mid patch of draws to rivals and a heavy loss to league leader Chaos from Laos sandwhiched inbetween quaility wins.

Notable Additions/Losses:

Lenin (Block, POMB Blitzer) and Castro (MA 8, Dodge Catcher) both looking like the building blocks on this team's future

Best Result So Far

vs Bar Room Blusterers (Week 2)

Next Four Games

Gold Coast Creeps

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Walker's had a tough draw so far (has played Vordoca, Varksen, Razour and Dwarfbane already) and managed rather well on his end. Might see him starting to leapfrog up the ladder at his rival's expense (1st - 4th)

Bar Room Blusterers (Wood Elves 1400) - by Varksen

Current Record 3rd 3-1-2 (+7)

Story So Far

Season 10's been a pretty decent showing so far for Varksen's Bar Room Blusterers. A shock loss to tjhe Cold Coast Creeps in Week 5 though may of damaged his playoff prospects

Notable Additions/Losses:

Dennis Dropkick - The newly minted Agi 5 Tackle Wardancer will be out to reek havok along with star import Amallara (Agi 5, Blodgestep, Guard, DT).

Best Result So Far

vs Liverfull (Week 6)

Next Four Games

Chaos from Laos

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

A massive showdown with division leader Chaos from Laos waits the Blusterers this week. Win here and the rest of the season opens up for them. (1st - 4th)

Cold Coast Creeps (Underworld 1370) - by SamSlade

Current Record 4th 3-1-2 (-2)

Story So Far

After a rough start, the Creepers have found themselves in a position where playoffs isn't out of the question, that was until a draw to the winless Springfield 92' in the Underworld Mirror of Week 6 put a damper on those ideas

Notable Additions/Losses:

Hard to go past Alsothegreatest (MA 8, STR 4 Thrower). His rise to glory is not concidence with the Cold Coast Creeps's turn-around

Best Result So Far

vs Bar Room Blusterers (Week 5)

Next Four Games

Clash of Comrades

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

So far, we were spot on - Sam's in the mix chasing down Vordoca and whilst I would love to see anonther Underworld in playoffs (and in spite of Alsothegreatest) I just can't see it. A big win vs Walkerthon next week will change that view in a hurry though (3rd - 5th)

Liverfull (Dwarves 1760) - by Razour Sharp

Current Record 5th 2-2-2 (0)

Story So Far

A tale of two halves so Razour Sharp's dwarves - Started strong by delivering Chaos from Laos's sole loss in Season 10 and finished Week 6 with a 3-0 loss to Wood Elves, the Bar Room Blustereres

Notable Additions/Losses:

Take your pick - a Dwarven smorgasbord of Guard, MB and plenty of other great skills to ruin their opponent's day. Firminoro (STR 4 MB, Tackle Blitzer) and Salahmo (STR 4 Runner) stand as highlights

Best Result So Far

vs Chaos from Laos (Week 1)

Next Four Games

Springfield '92

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

A couple of tough results (one to the aptly named Dwarfbane in Week 4) has hurt Razour Sharp's chances at this time, though we it's dangerous to suggest these Dwarves will stay out for long. (1st - 4rd)

The Blessed Ratmen (Skaven 1610) - by dwarfbane

Current Record 6th 2-2-2 (0)

Story So Far

Hit and Miss so far for the dangerous skaven. Missed the season opener before storming the next few games. Week 6's loss to the Chaos from Laos probably the best indication of where this team is at for Season 10

Notable Additions/Losses:

Snikch Deathblow's performances have been a weclome sight for Ratmen fans - 8 casualties in 5 games, giving dwarfbane the much needed punch… and his opponents yet another player to worry about! On a sour note, Mad Monk (Guard/Block Linerat) dying in their 1st game would of been frustrating.

Best Result So Far

vs Liverfull (Week 4)

Next Four Games

The Bizkit Rizkitz

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Right now, it's do or die for The Blessed Ratmen's season. With limited spots and alot of competition Dwarfbane needs to be not only finding wins, but winning big - and his next game vs The Bizkit Rizkitz is the perfect opportunity to do so (2nd - 5th)

The Bizkit Rizkitz (Goblins 970) - by The Peacock

Current Record 7th 1-1-4 (-10)

Story So Far

It's been a tough road for the defending JeJu Cup champions so far. A win against fellow rival Breac and an impressive draw against the much fancied Liverfull remain the two highlights of their season.

Notable Additions/Losses:

Party Ring - the Agi 4 Bombardier could be alot of fun for Peacock in the future, even if it's for one half

Best Result So Far

vs Springfield '92 (Week 3)

Next Four Games

The Blessed Ratmen

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

Goblins are some of the most beloved teams to watch and The Bizkit Rizkitz are no exception, though it'll be a struggle to see where their 2nd win comes from, barring a rematch with Springfield 92' in the upcoming Swiss (6th - 8th)

Springfield '92 (Underworld 1420) - by Breac

Current Record 8th 0-1-5 (-11)

Story So Far

Winless afrom six games and with an average losing margin of roughly 2 TD's, Season 10 is already be a write-off for Springfield 92'

Notable Additions/Losses:

Ken Griffey Jr - The Underworld Troll has started to emerge the future star that Breac's been crying out for, picking up Claw to handle Bash and Tenticles to shut down the Dash. He'll be looking for his constantly replaced Blitzers to finally start developing.

Best Result So Far

NA - Coming Soon

Next Four Games

Liverfull

How Did The "Experts" Fare:

We had Breac towards the bottom half, citing a tough Division and lack of development but we didn't expect this. Just been battered by his opponents and his team not being able to develop at this time. (7th - 8th)
