Season 13's finally here and we're back for more! This time with 3 full Division of 14 teams. If you're new to the Pre-Season Preview, what we've got here is a massive showcase. Think of it as an introduction guide to foreigners and a refresher for the locals. (Once again fresh rolls you gotta earn this coverage, hard to write about a story if you haven't got one yet....).

So without further delay, let's dive in!

 


The Ball Pinchers (Wood Elves 1560) - by Gdaynick

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 1st (8-3-2)

Play Style:

One that kills my players

Star Player:

Mike Oxard - Ag 5, Sure Hands, Tackle Wardancer

Brief Bio:

Big O's champion from last season has returned - The Ball Pinchers, after an earlier than hoped for exit in Playoffs is back and looking to go deeper than before! However Season 13 offers a brand new challenge for the Elves, defending their title as top dog in Division 1!

What they say:

Top 3

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

The returning champion naturally starts as one of the favourites and after last season, we can't see why Nick can't make it two straight (1st - 3rd)

Bar Room Blusterers (Wood Elves 1740) - by Varksen

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 4th (7-2-4)

Play Style:

Calculated aggression with a touch of optimism

Star Player:

Dennis 'Dorhain' Jr - MB, Tackle, Strip Ball, Sidestep, Pro Wardancer

Brief Bio:

Season 12 was a fantastic one for the Bar Room Blusterers, living up to the immense hype although everything came crashing down at the end. Agility bust to star catcher "Sticky-Hand" Stevo, the long eluded death of Amallara and a 1st Round exit in Playoffs for the 2nd Season running. Is there anymore left in the tank from Varken's Elves?

What they say:

I mean I'll always back myself to get a ticket so... 4th?

What the rest say:

3rd - 7th

What the *experts* say:

Varksen is a proven commodity, though the fear that his core has been badly damaged from Season 12 has us spooked from a higher prediction (3rd - 6th)

Never Swapping (Necromantic 1930) - by Djoolyurn

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 5th (7-2-4)

Play Style:

Methodical

Star Player:

Arounddd - STR 4, Agi 4, Block, MB Werewolf

Brief Bio:

The model of consistency in Division 1 for the past few season - Djoolyurn has finally reclaimed status as the premier Necromantic team we have to offer, though two fresh rivals have arrived with the new moon. Will Season 13 see a return to playoffs for Never Swapping after barely missed last season?

What they say:

Top 3

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

We're expecting more of the same out of Djoolyurn, just a matter of his draw across the 1st month (4th - 8th)

Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD (Lizards 1720) - by Durteef Basha

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 6th (6-2-5)

Play Style:

Control

Star Player:

Rox - Agi 4, Block, Sidestep, Sprint, Sure Feet, Catch Skink

Brief Bio:

The rollercoaster of Bloodbowl can be perfectly illustrated by one team - the Lazy Lounge Lizards UTD. On their day unstoppable, how ever constant injuries, retirements and general misfortune has relegated Durteef to bridesmaid - barely missing Playoffs every season since debuting in Season 7's. Will it be Lucky 13 for the Lizards?

What they say:

Bottom of the Pack

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

The superstar skinks will win games, but the longterm success will need those Saurus to level - and fast (9th - 12th)

Hi Ho off to Work we GO! (Chaos Dwarves 1670) - by Zygmund

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 7th (5-3-5)

Play Style:

Forceful scrum, then punch through with glorious Bull Carry!

Star Player:

ME Score! - Agi 3, Sure Hands, Block, Dodge, Tackle Bull Centaur

Brief Bio:

From Division 3's Juggernaut to Division 1 menace, Zygmund and his Chorfs - Hi Ho off to Work we GO! (HHOTWWG for short) arguably were their own worst enemy last season, with several Draws/Losses snared from the jaws of Victory. Now another season older, more battle tested, will Zygmund take the next step and make a return to Playoffs in Season 13?

What they say:

Top 5, but I think have a strong chance for top3, dem elves gonna trip up!!

What the rest say:

5th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Another draw dependant team, soft draw here sets up Zygmund for a monster season, where a tough slog may end it before it can begin (10th - 14th)

The Empire Strikes Back!! (Norse 1620) - by Morka

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 1st (8-3-2)

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

There is no escape - MA 9, Dodge, Sure Hands, Sidestep

Brief Bio:

The coach needs no introduction - Morka is Big O Royalty. His team however? May be in need of a New Hope. The Empire will start under siege with core pieces missing and niggled, will Morka right the ship and make his return to Division 1, one to remember?

What they say:

Did not reply

What the rest say:

3rd - 10th

What the *experts* say:

With his best players missing and or niggled, it might be a long season for Morka (8th - 12th)

Flying Rainbow Ponies (High Elves 1660) - by HirumaMajere

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 2nd (8-2-3)

Play Style:

Aerial Magick

Star Player:

Erugoldur Kavavanlhûn (Kev) - STR 4, Dodge, Tackle, Sidestep, Leap Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Hiruma Majere and the Flying Rainbow Ponies are no stranger to Division 1 in the Big O, having served terms in Seasons 7 & 9, though demoted the following season. However after 3 Seasons away (including one across a different conference) have the Ponies finally found the winning formula to take out Division 1?

What they say:

Middle of the table

What the rest say:

7th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Hiruma's plan for Season 13 starts by surviving Week 1, manage that and the sky's the limit (4th - 9th)

Pseudointellectuals (Necromantic 1650) - by YFGAS

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 3rd (8-1-4)

Play Style:

Complicate the position and hope my opponent blunders

Star Player:

Heraclitus - STR 4, Block, Dodge, Tackle, Sidestep Werewolf

Brief Bio:

It's been a rapid rise for the Pseudointellectuals here in the Big O. From Minor's phenomenon to Division 3's bridesmaid and their eventual breakthrough in Season 12 with a Playoffs debut. However they're not alone, old rivals still remain along with the pressure for YFGAS to go one further, back to back playoffs for the Necromantic team.

What they say:

Top 4

What the rest say:

7th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Missing Heraclitus for the opener is an issue, worse so if the draw unkind. Managable but starting 0-2 or 0-3 might be unsalvageable (11th - 14th)

Zoltans Zwords (Chaos Dwarves 2210) - by MrMonster

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 4th (7-3-3)

Play Style:

Punch, pile on, repeat

Star Player:

Deadface - MB, Guard, SF, PO, Grab Blocker

Brief Bio:

Arguably the premier Chorf team within the Big O, Zoltans Zwords after back to back Challenger's Cup will be looking to finally break through into a long awaited Playoffs debut. Will Season 13 be the charm for MrMonster?

What they say:

Top 5

What the rest say:

4th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

The other experts aren't a fan of the Mino, nor the massive tv but the saving grace is the Blockers are exceptional. Expect this prediction to change in the next updated (11th - 14th)

Boo Khaki Seamen Spray (Necromantic 1860) - by Munkey Chunks

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 5th (7-3-3)

Play Style:

Gets fucked over by Nuffle everytime!

Star Player:

Gentleman's Relish - Block, Kick Zombie

Brief Bio:

TD Difference kept Munkey Chunks away from back to back Challenger's Cup berths, as the Boo Khaki Seamen Spray, a Big O cult favourite continue to soar. Will it be in Division 1 that the Spray finally become unglued? And make a mess of the Division?

What they say:

Not too bad - we'd expect be in the upper half of the table, but it's pretty much up to Nuffle to decide!

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

Based more on reputation than anything if we're being honestly, classic Necro team though one hell of an unlucky coach (7th - 12th)

Wood Land Warriors (Wood Elves 1960) - by Haz1079

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 6th (6-4-3)

Play Style:

Playing for fun but still like to win

Star Player:

Sturdywood - MA 3, Block, Dodge, Grab, BT Treeman

Brief Bio:

Arguably no team was a hot as the Wood Land Warriors in the back half of Season 12 - unbeaten across 6 games until being denied by eventually 2nd placing Hiruma. With the team healthy, has Haz finally figured out the winning formula to match the incredible potential of the Wood Land Warriors?

What they say:

Bottom half

What the rest say:

5th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Potentially missing the first couple games is just brutal, we'll have to see how Haz can bounce back (8th - 14th)

Resplendent Romans (High Elves 1820) - by #420NOCHIN

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 1st (9-2-1)

Play Style:

Rather cautious and tries to minimize risk. Loves to throw the ball downfield as well

Star Player:

Scipio Africanus - MA 5, Strong arm, Agi 5, Sure Hands, Dodge, Kick Off Return Thrower

Brief Bio:

Without question, the breakout team from Season 12 within the Big O - the Resplendent Romans burst from possible contenders to legitimate dark horse in the playoffs, even eliminated by that Season's Champion - Bullcanoe. Can Swagtusk follow up with an even better Season 13?

What they say:

Hard to say, I see myself competing for a play off ticket.

What the rest say:

4th - 8th

What the *experts* say:

Swag's played against and beaten top teams last season, so we're backing him to perform well again in Season 13 (1st - 4th)

The Nurgtown Crooners (Nurgle 2250) - by Cynergy

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 2nd Season 11 (8-2-3)

Play Style:

A controlling spread of love

Star Player:

The Bearded Aunt - STR 5, Block, MB, Claw, Guard Warrior

Brief Bio:

After a well deserved season off, the Nurgtown Crooners are back, now ready to make their much awaited debut in Division 1! With their last outing being the showdown with Arequipa Nurglerers ReBBL in Season 11's Semi Finals, will there be any sign of rust for Cynergy entering Season 13?

What they say:

Lets say... 4th

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

THE pre-season favourite among peers and experts - Cynergy will be the one to beat in Season 13 (1st - 5th)

Shadowhill Cowboys (Dark Elves 1810) - by Sandune

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 6th Season 11 (5-4-4)

Play Style:

Blood Bowl

Star Player:

Ultil - POMB, Tackle, JU, Dodge Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Following a season off, Sandune and the Shadowhill Cowboys are back and ready to reclaim Division 1's top spot. With the team in as good shape since it's glory days, how far can Sandune go? Will Season 13 be the return to playoffs for the Cowboys?

What they say:

Middle of the pack

What the rest say:

3rd - 7th

What the *experts* say:

It's Sandune and his team's actually in good shape - expect him to feature top to mid table all season long (3rd - 8th)



Chaos from Laos (Chaos 2030) - by rsVordoca

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 9th (4-5-4)

Play Style:

Admiral-centred

Star Player:

Admiral Laos - Agi 5, MA 6, Block, Sure Hands Warrior

Brief Bio:

As expected, Season 12 was at times a brutal learning experience for the Chaos From Laos. However, with the Chaos nearly reaching critical mass - who will be able to stop Vordoca's return to playoffs in Season 13?

What they say:

Top 3

What the rest say:

3rd - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Vordoca is the big bash of this division and whilst his team has some holes, he'll likely feature in the playoff contenders (4th - 12th)

Warc Machine III (Orcs 1920) - by Lyskaris

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 1 12th (3-5-5)

Play Style:

Control

Star Player:

"Leftie" Leroy III - STR 4, Agi 5, MA 7, Sure Hands, Tackle Blitzer

Brief Bio:

It's an end of an era - Division 1 has no more Orcs, but not all is lost for the greenskins yet - The Warc Machine III remains strong, with coach Lyskaris looking to avenge a disappointing Season 12 with a better Season 13.

What they say:

Season 12 was incredibly frustrating, with a couple key rolls/games derailing my season. This will be a return to Division 1 and Playoffs or a possible reroll, nothing in-between.

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

Big developed Orcs in a bash-lite Division, should be a strong chance to make Playoffs (1st - 5th)

Who Bat (Vampires 1860) - by PaoloB

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 8th (5-2-6)

Play Style:

Fail 89% of Pro rolls. Curse quietly to myself while trying to put a brave face on things in chat

Star Player:

Count Amadan the Vain - Agi 6, Block, Dodge, Sidestep Vampire

Brief Bio:

Easily the biggest X-Factor for Season 13 - Paolo and their Vampires, Who Bat. After a midtable "adjusting" period in Season 12, have the Vampires matured enough to go from hair pulling nuisance into hypnotic, unguardable monsters?

What they say:

What the rest say:

4th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Massive, massive Vampire team - so who the hell knows what we'll see from PaoloB. True wildcard (3rd - 12th)

Damage Incorporated. (Nurgle 1670) - by JamusMcgamuS

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 9th (4-3-6)

Play Style:

Control

Star Player:

Zhua - STR 5, Block, MB Warrior

Brief Bio:

Papa Nurgle wasn't smiling on JamusMcgauS in Season 12, with Damage Incorporated at times forgetting their company's Regen plan. However to count out the coach that engineered the One Season Nurgle Playoff Dream is foolish and simply asking for danger.

What they say:

Anywhere from top 3 to bottom 3

What the rest say:

3rd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

On paper, looks stuck in no-man's land between still building and ready to compete - midtable finish is likely with playoffs possibly if a couple results go his way (4th - 10th)

Attack on Tolkien (Lizards 1490) - by Linen

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 10th (4-2-7)

Play Style:

Inconceivable Upset Machine

Star Player:

Hemingway: Ultimate - Block, MB, Tackle Saurus

Brief Bio:

Funnily enough, a similar story to Haz over in Division 1 - Linen and his Lizards, Attack on Tolkien took their lumps early and found form mid-to-late season, playing spoiler for several teams at the end of Season 12. Will Linen be able to carry that momentum into Season 13?

What they say:

5th? 5th.

What the rest say:

4th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Race wise? Division 2 is a great environment for Lizards, so we're expecting a solid season from Linen (5th - 9th)

The Nasty Nibblers (Skaven 1690) - by PapaNasty

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 11th (3-4-6)

Play Style:

Bash Rats with a pinch of crazy gutter shenanigans which are only saved by the ability to score 1TTDs.

Star Player:

Quick Quentin - Agi 5, Two Heads, Wrestle, Dauntless, Strip Ball Gutter Runner

Brief Bio:

Started strongly, battered thoroughly. Pretty much sums up The Nasty Nibblers's Season 12. However, Season 13 is a clean slate for PapaNasty and a new chance to get back into Playoff Glory.

What they say:

Top 3, I’d reroll if I didn’t think I had a realistic shot at playoffs

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

Strong chance to win it all, chance relies on his rats surviving enough to establish enough of a lead (3rd - 8th)

Masters of the Bloodverse (Vampires 1580) - by Yasmir

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 2nd (6-4-2)

Play Style:

Hypnotic

Star Player:

He-Vamp - Block, MB, Tackle, Dodge Vampire

Brief Bio:

It was a breakout Season 12 for the Masters of the Bloodverse, as Yasmir's Vamps stormed through the Challenger's Cup - until their untimely exit and retirement of Sorcer-Vamp II. Now pushed up to the next level of competition, will the Masters be ready for the jump?

What they say:

Mid table

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

Losing a developed Vampire in his last Challenger's Cup game may cost Yasmir some early success, though he's proven to be more than capable to win the tough games (5th - 10th)

Those Norscan Buggers! (Norse 1960) - by Werecaster

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 3rd (6-1-5)

Play Style:

Pure utter chaos

Star Player:

Calm Collected Joey - Agi 3, Block, Diving Catch Ulfwerener

Brief Bio:

Defying all laws of reason, playing style and frankly karma - Werecaster and Those Norscan Buggers will continue on into Season 13 after a justly fitting; Chaotic Season 12.

What they say:

1st of course.....ether that or I'll crash and burn bad!

What the rest say:

3rd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

He's a gem, great watching the madness that is a Werecaster game, but there's a real chance his Norse crash and burn this season (10th - 14th)

Heavy Metal Massacre (Necromantic 1460) - by Starkeweather

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 4th (5-3-2)

Play Style:

YOLO plays are the ONLY plays!

Star Player:

James Hetfield II - MA 9, Block, Dodge Werewolf

Brief Bio:

In a fairer world, Starkeweather plays all 13 games in Season 12 and makes Playoffs/Challenger's Cup. Unfortunately that's not the case, finishing 1pt out with 2 games less played. Can the Heavy Metal Massacre make up for lost time in Season 13?

What they say:

I have some of the lowest TV and Im not very good. So I will probably finish bottome 3rd.

What the rest say:

5th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Starke's team is feeling a tad underdone. Could possibly make for a late run, but for now it's likely not happening (10th - 14th)

Rainbow Leaperss (Wood Elves 1550) - by Seriasssam

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5A 1st (12-1-0)

Play Style:

Aggressive, but trying to play smarter and more passively, only attacking when opportunities arise.

Star Player:

Orage - Strip Ball, Tackle, Sidestep, Wrestle Wardancer

Brief Bio:

For Seriassam, Season 12 was nothing short of outstanding. Undefeated until playoffs, posting an eye-watering +29 TD difference in the 12 Wins. However Season 13 will be the litmus test for the Rainbow Leapers, as they're now playing other seasoned, battle hardened teams.

What they say:

Bottom half, maybe top half if I get lucky.

What the rest say:

2nd - 6th

What the *experts* say:

If Sam can bring that aggression and flair from last season? He'll be tough to catch. The flipside being if his team starts to fall apart? Might be a quick season (3rd - 10th)

WrackleMania (Chaos 1660) - by Cat Attack Man

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5A 5th (7-1-5)

Play Style:

Try to bash, fail, and chase tail all game

Star Player:

Junkyard Dog - Block, MB, Claw Beastman

Brief Bio:

A great rookie season for Cat Attack Man has been rewarded with a Division 2 placing. A daunting task awaits for Wracklemania but Season 13 could be the showcase for his immortals.

What they say:

Reckon I'm pretty stiff to be in Div 2. Was one win from 8 games before the playing three bottom sides followed by another 3 low (swiss) opponents. As a result, I'll be bottom three or four.

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

One season Chaos, developed Division, long season. CAM will hurt some teams but is unlikely to finisher higher than mid-table (6th - 14th)

Filthy, Stinkin' Elves (Pro Elves 1830) - by serpickles

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 1st (10-3-0)

Play Style:

Patience is key

Star Player:

Putrid Pritchard - STR 4 Dodge, Tackle Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Onto the other Division 5 Standout, much like the Rainbow Leaperss did serpickles and his Filthy, Stinkin' Elves dominate his fellow coaches - going undefeated in 5B. Another new Elf contender, another litmus test in Season 13.

What they say:

I'd be very happy with a top 3 finish, or at least a team that is still alive for next season

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

Serpickles is our odds on pick to make playoffs from Division 2, he's got the team and the skill to get it done (1st - 3rd)

The Breton Brawlers (Bretonnians 1420) - by Raker

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 2nd (8-1-4)

Play Style:

Play like Nuffle rigs your dice, and if you're lucky, he won't screw you too hard.

Star Player:

Sothis - MB, Grab Blocker

Brief Bio:

5B's runner up in Season 12 and despite posting 8 Wins, had the misfortune of playing in Serpickle's Division. And after a brief Challenger's Cup, Raker and his Breton Brawlers will be looking to go from strength to strength in Season 13.

What they say:

I expected dead last in my first season, but made it to challenger cup - This season, I'm going all the way to the championship game(Wherein half my team will die to GFI failures)

What the rest say:

9th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

Much like the fresh Chaos, fresh-ish Brets are probably in for a bad time this season. That said, Raker's got the right mindset to get it done (11th - 14th)

Killing Chorf (Chaos Dwarves 1500) - by NaClSalt

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 3rd (8-1-4)

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Renogm Sandbag - Agi 4, Block, Dodge Hobgoblin

Brief Bio:

Another coach from 5B with 8 Wins - and unlike Raker, NaCLSalt wasn't even fortunately enough to make Challenger's Cup! That said, Season 13 will provide more opportunities if the Killing Chorf can make the step up.

What they say:

Did not reply

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Likely a building season for NaCl, though if the draw is kind these Chorfs could skyrocket into contention (7th - 12th)



Clash of Comrades (Kislev 1830) - by Walkerthon

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 12th (3-3-7)

Play Style:

Aggressive to my own detriment

Star Player:

Mao - Agi 5, MA 6, Dodge, Sure Hands, Block, Sure Feet Catcher

Brief Bio:

Season 12 for the Comrades has something of a reality check, having been sent crashing down into Division 3 this season. However the makeup could prove the perfect launch-pad for the last developed Kislev left in the Big O.

What they say:

If my team can stay healthy, near the top.

What the rest say:

3rd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

3rd Season Kislev in against stunties and young teams? Sounds like a recipe for success to me (2nd - 6th)

The Way of the Leaf (Halflings 1080) - by Chubberson

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 2 14th (1-4-8)

Play Style:

Stunty

Star Player:

The Black Wind - Agi 5, Catch, Sprint, Sure Feet Halfling

Brief Bio:

In the same vain as Walkerthon, Chubberson and The Way of the Leaf spent Season 12 shooting for the moon but fell far short. That said, what better way to celebrate The Black Wind's impending legend status then by shocking the ReBBL community and making a return to Playoffs by taking out Division 3?

What they say:

3rd

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Competition vs the other four stunties will be fierce, though The Black Wind is the great equaliser - Quality Dark Horse from Division 3 (6th - 12th)

Macau Squig Raiders (Orcs 1640) - by Balwen

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 7th (5-4-4)

Play Style:

Not afraid to roll some dice

Star Player:

Goraf - POMB, JU, Tackle Blitzer

Brief Bio:

After a midtable finish in Season 12, Division 3 could be the perfect environment for the Macau Squig Raiders to thrive in and see Balwen step up as the next Big Orc in Season 13.

What they say:

Hopefully top half

What the rest say:

4th - 9th

What the *experts* say:

Big Orcs with plenty of SPP to grow, could quickly become a massive player if everything falls Balwen's way (4th - 9th)

Scintillant Snotballz (Goblins 1440) - by Dalryk

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 8th (4-5-4)

Play Style:

Kill or be Killed

Star Player:

Tumble - Pro, Block, Tackle, BT Troll

Brief Bio:

No longer the sole Goblin team, but still this writer's No. 1 and possibly the most deadly force in the Big O, can Dalryk finally break through the glass ceiling into Playoff glory?

What they say:

I'm taking it all the way baby

What the rest say:

2nd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

A legitimate chance for a stunty team to qualify outright, will depend on the early draw (5th - 12th)

Henson Hooligans (Lizards 1430) - by Popsicle

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 10th (3-4-6)

Play Style:

I play on the edge of life and death apparently

Star Player:

Gonzo - Block, MB, Guard Saurus

Brief Bio:

Victims of a hyper-competitive Division for the 2nd season running, Popsicle now enters Season 13 as THE big dog in what could be very soon his Division.

What they say:

Going in without a full roster hopefully can build the team up early and land around the middle

What the rest say:

3rd - 10th

What the *experts* say:

A lot of STR, Block and MB in a Division that lacks all three? Could make a a good time if you're a Hooligan's fan (4th - 10th)

Hat Enthusiasts (High Elves 1850) - by Air Jordan

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 3 11th (2-5-6)

Play Style:

Love the passing game

Star Player:

Charlie Chaplin - STR 4, Agi busted, Block, Dodge, Tackle Catcher

Brief Bio:

Finally free from long running rival Swagtusk, Air Jordan and the Hat Enthusiasts stand as the premier Elf threat this Season in Division 3. Will it be enough turn into a playoff experience? Time will time.

What they say:

Hopefully with the team sitting where it is and with what I learned last season I am hoping to make a push for Top 3

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

Big tv, developed High Elves without a major bash to deal with them - a strong contender for Season 13 (1st - 5th)

Tree Fiddi (Chaos Dwarves 1680) - by Nubs11

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5A 7th (6-1-4)

Play Style:

Go for the win!

Star Player:

Thog Ghostbane - STR 4, MA 7, Block Hobgoblin

Brief Bio:

After a solid debut season, Nubs looks set for a massive season - with his Chaos Dwarves, Tree Fiddi a certainty to become Public Enemy No. 1

What they say:

Hopefully top!

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

It's Chorfs vs several stunties and other teams that Chorfs enjoy playing. Almost a lock barring a disaster (1st - 3rd)

Horatio's Heroes (Halflings 1100) - by Skyblue Monty

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5A 8th (5-2-6)

Play Style:

Skyblue Monty

Star Player:

Colonel Will "Elm" Klink - NoS Treeman

Brief Bio:

Australia's biggest Tosser is back! Skyblue Monty's brought a new band of heroes to be flung into their doom. Who knows what chaos Division 3 is in for?

What they say:

Bottom 2

What the rest say:

8th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

I'll go out on a limb and say the weakest of the stunties (Sorry Monty). That said, prove us wrong (11th - 14th)

The Delf Experiment (Dark Elves 1550) - by AussieVikingr

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 4th (8-1-4)

Play Style:

Potato

Star Player:

Shazza - Block, Sidestep Witch Elf

Brief Bio:

A favourite son - AussieViking returns, bring potentially the next big Dark Elf team to conquer the Big O. Has he mastered the age old Experiment and found the secret of constant 2+'s?

What they say:

A lot of good coaches in this div. I should finish in the middle of the table.

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

In the same vain of the High Elves, expecting Aussie to compete strongly this season (2nd - 8th)

Archaon's First Chosen (Chaos 1400) - by GreySquirrel

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 8th (5-6-2)

Play Style:

Murder Everything

Star Player:

Qhaysh Neth Shyesh - STR 5 Warrior

Brief Bio:

The next generation of Chaos in the Big O - GreySquirrel will probably be looking to use Season 13 to ramp-up the development of Archaon's First Chosen and finish off ready for a bigger, bloodier future.

What they say:

Top 5

What the rest say:

4th - 9th

What the *experts* say:

Young chaos, still lacking the skills to reliably finish in the top half at this stage (7th - 12th)

Papa's Test Tickles (Nurgle 1500) - by Fyrs Yced

Previous Seasons Result: Big O 5B 10th (4-3-6)

Play Style:

Shitty

Star Player:

Test Tickler-Cancer - Block, Dodge, Sure Hands Pestigor

Brief Bio:

Papa Nurgle holds a special place within the Big O - with Papa's Test Tickles oddly enough being the "freshest". Despite very much looking at a building season, is a Jamus-esk run on the cards for Fyrs?

What they say:

Mid-pack

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

Same as the Chaos, though even less skills to work with. That said Beast of Nurgle will be a god-send against the majority of teams (10th - 14th)

TRust in Gob (Goblins 1320) - by keandere

Previous Seasons Result: GMAN 2B 14th (3-3-7)

Play Style:

Very sensitive and kind

Star Player:

The Messenger - Agi 4, Sidestep, Sure Feet Pogoer

Brief Bio:

From across the seas a new challenger emerges for the Goblin Throne - keandere, preaching of his TRust in Gob may prove to be a real contender not Season 13 (and not just the Stunty Cup!)

What they say:

Above the halflings :), probably among last 5. Let's hope 9th :).

What the rest say:

4th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

I'll be intrigued to see how the goblin imports fare, with the mirror match possibly deciding the other's season (6th - 12th)

Bone Fighter Boo (Ogre 1550) - by Ed Havoc

Previous Seasons Result: GMAN 3B 12th (2-3-8)

Play Style:

Tight and aggressive

Star Player:

Akuma - Block, BT, PO, Guard, SF Ogre

Brief Bio:

With a fair claim of being the most decorated Ogres in ReBBL's history, Ed Havok and his Bone Fighter Boo will arrive home to much fanfare. Will we see the wrecking ball or the boneheads? Only time can tell

What they say:

Happy with mid table. More importantly however is being top ranked stunty team

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

If the Ogres behave? Could achieve anything, though that's a MASSIVE if. Likely mid-table at best at this stage (8th - 14th)

Bushrangers (Norse 1650) - by Thorce

Previous Seasons Result: Minors

Play Style:

AV7 Block Elves

Star Player:

Benjamin "Brave" Hall - Leader, Accurate, Strong Arm Thrower

Brief Bio:

The latest arrival from REBBLR Minors to make the jump up into the Big O, will Thorce be able to take the Bushrangers and follow the path rookies before him have blazed? Or perhaps can he do one better?

What they say:

Last place

What the rest say:

8th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Quietly a strong outside chance for a playoffs spot, wouldn’t surprise me the slightest if Thorce ended up placing among the leaders once it's said and done (3rd - 9th)
