We're halfway through Season 14 and the race for playoffs are offically heating up! This is the recap of Weeks 1 through to 7 and the stories so far.

 

 


Warc Machine III (Orcs 1860) - by Lyskaris

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

Story So Far

The Big Orc has returned! At least for the first half of Season 14 in Division 1, finally looking like slowing down after a loss in Week 7. How long can the Machine's run continue for until they're dragged back to reality?

Notable Additions/Losses

The depleted Blitzer core is showing signs of life, however it's came at a terrible cost - Star ex-Bash Incorporated import Smaug Scar'Fase (Blodge, Guard, SF, Grab Black Orc) and budding replacement Sovereign II both lost in Week 5 bloodbath vs the Flying Rainbow Ponies.

Best Result

vs Damage Incorporated Week 6

Next Four Games

Heavy Metal Massacre, Boo Khaki Seamen Spray, Shadowhill Cowboys, Attack on Tolkien

How Did The Experts Fare?

Way off the mark, even this author's wildest, (and bias) best case scenario couldn’t imagine such a strong start. Just a matter of traversing through the remaining claw and finishing off the good start to the season. (1st - 6th)

Damage Incorporated. (Nurgle 2020) - by JamusMcgamuS

Current Record 2nd 4-2-1 (+7)

Story So Far

The most consistent force in Division One, Jamus has been outstanding, with Damage Incorporated established as Big O's premier Nurgle, looking increasing like a lock for playoffs with every passing week.

Notable Additions/Losses

Losing replacement Pestigor Malkara (Wrestle, Dodge) in the Nurgle mirror was rough, however the loss of Katar (Block, MB, Claw, Tackle Warrior) in Week7 to SirSebstar was just horrific.

Best Result

vs Zoltan Zwords Week 3

Next Four Games

Boo Khaki Seamen Spray, Flying Rainbow Ponies, Chaos from Laos, Shadowhill Cowboys

How Did The Experts Fare?

One of the pre-season favourites, Jamus has continued his strong form from Season 13 and look set to make it back to back Playoff appearances (1st - 6th)

Shadowhill Cowboys (Dark Elves 1910) - by Sandune

Current Record 2nd 4-2-1 (+7)

Story So Far

Another season passes and for Sandune it's more of the same - float under the radar until mid-season and secure another post-season appearance. Season 14 looks like it'll be no different at this stage.

Notable Additions/Losses

A couple of Agility upgrades to Runner Ballos (Agi 5, Strong Arm) and Blitzer Cadmair (Blodge, Sidestep) however I'm not sure it covers Calrel's death (Blodge, Guard, Sidestep Blitzer)

Best Result

vs Filthy, Stinkin' Elves Week 6

Next Four Games

Never Swapping, d'V'nter Devils, Warc Machine III, Damage Incorporated

How Did The Experts Fare?

Was picked for Top 3 and despite a shaky start has bounced back to where he was expected to be. Massive run home waits (1st - 6th)

Never Swapping (Necromantic 1920) - by Djoolyurn

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

Story So Far

If you were to ask me which season has been Never Swapping's best? I would be hard pressed to go against Season 14. Despite at times having sheer lack of tools or players, Djoolyurn gets results. And now the scary part? His team is finally rebuilding….

Notable Additions/Losses

In Week 4, Runnnn (Block, MB, Dodge, Tackle Wolf) step out of Arounddd's shadow and emerged as the supporting star Djoolyurn's been crying out for.

Best Result

vs Warc Machine III Week 7

Next Four Games

Shadowhill Cowboys, Chaos from Laos, Filthy, Stinkin' Elves, Zoltan's Zwords

How Did The Experts Fare?

Dead on the money. No matter the state of the team or his opening draw, Djoolyurn will bounce back and rise to the top. Week 8's showdown vs Sandune will be massive (3rd - 6th)

Heavy Metal Massacre (Necromantic 1780) - by Starkeweather

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

Story So Far

Much maligned, the pure chaotic Starke's success can no longer be ignored. One way or another the Heavy Metal Massacre will be a factor for the remainder of Season 14.

Notable Additions/Losses

Once again feels like a case of good news/bad news. Scott Ian's development has been great (Blodge, Guard, Fend Zombie) but losing Nikki Sixx is bloody awful (STR 5, Block Golem).

Best Result

vs d'V'nter Devils Week 2

Next Four Games

Warc Machine III, Zoltan's Zwords, Flying Rainbow Ponies, Filthy Stinkin' Elves

How Did The Experts Fare?

His playstyle may be erratic at times, but his success is undeniable. Stark enters the mid-way point THE strongest contender of the mid-pack. (3rd - 9th)

d'V'nter Devils (Necromantic 1780) - by SirSebstar

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

Story So Far

A couple of shock losses and could have been draws won't subtract what's been an outstanding debut season for Sebstar and the Devils. Easily the strongest contender currently outside of the Top 5.

Notable Additions/Losses

After entering Season 14 at an imposing 2300tv, the d'V'nter Devils sit at a trim 1780 just 7 weeks later. Among the casualty list includes Theirry the Terrible (POMB, Tackle Wight), Sextis Richard Blade (STR 4, Guard, Block Zombie), Mark Diagnoses (Guard, Block Zombie) and recently a MA bust to Michael the Awaker (Block, Guard, MB Golem)

Best Result

vs Flying Rainbow Ponies Week 6

Next Four Games

Attack on Tolkien, Shadowhill Cowboys, Zoltan's Zwords, Who Bat?

How Did The Experts Fare?

Shock loss to Starke aside - SirSebstar has been excellent this season and looks primed to make a playoff appearance in their first tour of Big O (2nd - 6th)

Zoltans Zwords (Chaos Dwarves 2130) - by MrMonster

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

Story So Far

Back to Back draws has slowed down Zoltan's Zwords momentum heading into the mid-way part of the season, will MrMonster be able to reignite his Chorf machine and finally roll into Playoffs?

Notable Additions/Losses

Considering their draw so far? Only losing Swagsader (STR 4 Wrestling Hobgoblin) is a minor miracle

Best Result

vs Trump's Chumps Week 1

Next Four Games

Who Bat, Heavy Metal Massacre, d'V'nter Devils, Never Swapping

How Did The Experts Fare?

Similar to Sandune before him, slow-ish start but hitting some real form over the past three weeks. Should be a strong contender for the rest of the season (4th - 9th)

Trump's Chumps (Nurgle 2000) - by Yabby69

Current Record 8th 2-3-2 (0)

Story So Far

Yabby enters Week 8 in a familiar position - midtable, a game or two out of Top 5. A willingness to accept draws at times has cost him in the past and is threatening to do as again in Season 14.

Notable Additions/Losses

The rapid development of Kirstjen Nielsen & Jeff Sessions has been incredible to watch so far and is the shining light of Yabby's season.

Best Result

vs Never Swapping Week 2

Next Four Games

Flying Rainbow Ponies, Attack on Tolkien, Who Bat, Laos from Chaos

How Did The Experts Fare?

Despite posting some big wins early on - Yabby's cooled off over the last month, with some costly draws hobbling this momentum. That said a kind schedule ahead is just what Papa Nurgle ordered (4th - 10th)

Boo Khaki Seamen Spray (Necromantic 2110) - by Munkey Chunks

Current Record 9th 1-4-2 (-2)

Story So Far

Speaking of draws - Munkeychunks has been perhaps the biggest "What If" this season, with multiple 2's & 3+s denying him the results he's after. It's still not too late from the Spray however…

Notable Additions/Losses

Aside from Knobgobbler (Agi 5, Guard, Ghoul) going supernova and the replacement of Pearl Necklace (Guard Wight), it’s been quiet for the Boo Khaki lot.

Best Result

vs Chaos from Laos Week 3

Next Four Games

Damage Incorporated, Warc Machine III, Attack on Tolkien, Flying Rainbow Ponies

How Did The Experts Fare?

The Spray entered season 14 with high hopes but with a touch of hesitation and unfortunately, it's been shown why - Only the singular win from 7 attempts so far has most likely ended Munkey's top-end table aspirations. However, there's still a chance to threaten that final spot. (5th - 10th)

Who Bat (Vampires 1690) - by MisspelledTree

Current Record 10th 2-1-4 (-2)

Story So Far

It's been a bruising season for the sole Vamps of Division One, with MisspelledTree at times left to play games with a handful of players by Turn 6. Here's hoping for a kinder 2nd half of Season 14.

Notable Additions/Losses

Legions upon legions of lost Thralls, and surely made more to come unfortunately.

Best Result

vs Boo Khaki Seamen Spray Week 2

Next Four Games

Zoltan's Zwords, Filthy Stinkin' Elves, Trump's Chumps, d'V'nter Devils

How Did The Experts Fare?

The big fear for picking the Vamps pre-season was the draw was critical from them. Unfortunately for Tree, there's been a couple near misses that have just about written off the season. Needs another lack run akin to Season 13 (8th - 12th)

Filthy, Stinkin' Elves (Pro Elves 1810) - by serpickles

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

Story So Far

It's DEFCON 2 right now for the Filthy, Stinkin' Elves. After being denied several results for game changing snakes, Pickles has thrown down the gauntlet - Win or there might not be a Season 15 for the Elves!

Notable Additions/Losses

After 3 seasons, wear & tear is finally starting to show. Minor busts to start players and now the unfortunate loss of Odorous Owen (Agi 5, Wrestle, Dodge Lineman) may only be the beginning.

Best Result

vs Flying Rainbow Ponies Week 4

Next Four Games

Chaos from Laos, Who Bat, Never Swapping, Heavy Metal Masscre

How Did The Experts Fare?

Speaking on near misses, easily the coach that's been cruelled the most - brutal snakes costing just as many games. Playoffs isn't out of reach yet, but the window is closing (4th - 10th)

Flying Rainbow Ponies (High Elves 1790) - by HirumaMajere

Current Record 12th 2-1-4 (-4)

Story So Far

One of Big O's most storied teams, the Flying Rainbow Ponies appear to be on their last legs. If Season 14 is truly their last, here's hoping they go out in style.

Notable Additions/Losses

Veeshan's (STR 4, MB, Block, Dodge, Tackle Catcher) ascension to super stardom has been the sole shining light in an otherwise bleak season in regard to player development for the Ponies.

Best Result

vs Shadowhill Cowboys Week 3

Next Four Games

Trump's Chumps, Damage Incorporated, Heavy Metal Massacre, Boo Khaki Seamen Spray

How Did The Experts Fare?

The last three weeks have eliminated the Ponies from contention in our eyes sadly, though Hiruma will still be a massive spoiler to his remaining opponents for sure (9th - 12th)

Chaos from Laos (Chaos 1720) - by rsVordoca

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

Story So Far

Despite seasons of action, the Chaos from Laos remain a one player team - and unfortunately support for the Admiral right now looks so far away.

Notable Additions/Losses

Like clockwork, as soon as Vordoca develops a much-needed supporting piece - it dies. None more important than the loss of star killer Phoumi Nosavan (MA 7, Block, MB, Claw, Tackle Beastman) in Week 8.

Best Result

vs Flying Rainbow Ponies Week 2

Next Four Games

Filthy Stinkin' Elves, Never Swapping, Damage Incorporated, Trump's Chumps

How Did The Experts Fare?

Vordoca's played some great Bloodbowl, it's just a case of his team still not being there to support his two stars. Probably another season away at least (9th - 14th)

Attack on Tolkien (Lizards 1580) - by Linen

Current Record 14th 0-1-6 (-12)

Story So Far

The writing was on the wall for Linen in Week 1 - a crushing loss both Scoreboard & personal wise, and it's only continued on since. Survival is the goal sure at this stage.

Notable Additions/Losses

Losing My Heller Academia (MA 9, Block, Sprint Skink) is unfortunately but the trade-off appears that his Saurus remain relatively intact, misses a few MA busts along the way.

Best Result

N/A - Coming Soon

Next Four Games

d'V'nter Devils, Trump's Chumps, Boo Khaki Seamen Spray, Warc Machine III

How Did The Experts Fare?

Worst case scenario has arrived. No favourable matchup and no end in sight, will be a long season for Linen (12th - 14th)



Archaon's First Chosen (Chaos 1690) - by GreySquirrel

Current Record 1st 6-1-0 (+8)

Story So Far

Halfway through and GreySquirrel's performance has been nothing short of spectacular, undefeated from 7 games and shows no signs of slowing down.

Notable Additions/Losses

Slow and steady, no major additions or losses of note so far.

Best Result

vs WrackleMania Week 6

Next Four Games

Celestialmancers, Those Norscan Buggers, Bushrangers, Bye

How Did The Experts Fare?

We were wrong - simply put the smallest of three Chaos teams in theory should struggle. Impressive run for GreySquirrel and should be a lock for Playoffs (1st - 3rd)

Celestialmancers (Lizards 1590) - by Gorrin

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

Story So Far

After winning his Division last season, who knew that Gorrin's encore would be just as good? Outright second in a highly competitive Division, with first place just in-range - Can the Celestialmancers make it 2 from 2?

Notable Additions/Losses

Losing both Mars (Blodge, Guard Saurus) and Saturn (Block, Frenzy) Saurus in the same game is a hell of a wakeup call after a fortunate run of injuries. That said, Luna (STR 3, MA 9, Blodge, Sure Hands Skink) continues to be a monster.

Best Result

vs Tree Fiddi Week 6

Next Four Games

Archaon's First Chosen, Catastrophy, WrackleMania, Masters of the Bloodverse

How Did The Experts Fare?

The challenge was laid down for Gorrin and so far he's delivered. Barring a late collapse should be returning to playoffs. (1st - 5th)

Masters of the Bloodverse (Vampires 1930) - by Yasmir

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

Story So Far

Season 14 started with a slip for the highly touted Vampires, but Yasmir's managed to rally into the mid-season with 4 wins from his last 5 games. Can the Masters of the Bloodverse become the Masters of Division Two?

Notable Additions/Losses

Skelle-Vamp's (Agi 5, Blodge, Pro Vampire) Agility bust was a heavy body blow for Yasmir, however Evil-Lyn-Vamp II (Agi 5 Vampire) appears as it's heir replacement.

Best Result

vs Bushrangers Week 4

Next Four Games

Scintillant Snotballz, Bye, Killing Chorf, Celestialmancers

How Did The Experts Fare?

Coaching ability was never the issue here, just that Vampires are impossible to predict. That said Yasmir's been exceeding our lofty expectations for season 14 so far. (1st - 5th)

WrackleMania (Chaos 1980) - by Cat Attack Man

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

Story So Far

Last season's juggernaut and until a shock loss to Archaon's First Chosen in Week 6 were very much the team to beat. All eyes will be on CAM to recapture is form that almost had him make playoffs in Season 13

Notable Additions/Losses

Rowdy Roddy Piper's {MB, Block, Claw, Tackle Beastman) rapid emergence to replace retired killer Junkyard Dog has been a godsend for CAM. Nikolai Volkoff (MA 8, Wrestle Beastman) however proves to perhaps be he's must unique prospect.

Best Result

vs Catastrophy Week 3

Next Four Games

Killing Chorf, Henson Hooligans, Celestialmancers, The Dark Arcana

How Did The Experts Fare?

Roughly about where we expected and but honestly with such a strong start anything less than a post-season debut will be a disappointment (3rd - 6th)

Henson Hooligans (Lizards 1630) - by Popsicle

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

Story So Far

The outside threat - Henson Hooligan's in Season 14 are filling the role of spoiler, pinching games against the Top 3 whilst still being too much for the rest to handle. Will it be enough for Popsicle to return to playoffs?

Notable Additions/Losses

Noted Kroxigor hater Popsicle caved into pressure and purchased Guy Smiley - who promptly died in his 2nd game. Perhaps stick to Helmut? On a serious note Kermit's death (Agi 5, MA 9, Sprint, Sure Feet) appears to not have been felt too badly so far.

Best Result

vs The Delf Experiement Week 6

Next Four Games

The Dark Arcana, WrackleMania, Tree Fiddi, Catastrophy

How Did The Experts Fare?

Similar to CAM, was one of the teams expected to contend this season and hasn't looked out of place. We're expecting another strong finish for Popsicle this Season (3rd - 6th)

Bushrangers (Norse 2100) - by Thorce

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

Story So Far

Has it finally clicked? For so long we've watched on as the Bushrangers didn’t live up to the hype - no more. They've arrived, finally realising that are the 2k Norse demolition crew and will be a Thorce to be reckoned with (sorry).

Notable Additions/Losses

A niggle to star Ulfwerener - Captain Moonlite (Block, Guard, Tackle, MB) and the death of Frank Gardiner (Blodge, Catch, Diving Catcher, Sidestep, Fend Runner) shows that perhaps there's cracks starting to form in the Bushrangers.

Best Result

vs Killing Chorf Week 6

Next Four Games

Catastrophy, Tree Fiddi, Archaon's First Chosen, Winning Is a Bonus

How Did The Experts Fare?

The big if was if Thorce could take the next step this season and based from his last couple of games it looks like he's finally arrived. Dark Horse for the last two spots. 3rd - 10th)

Tree Fiddi (Chaos Dwarves 1610) - by Nubs11

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

Story So Far

Despite at times playing with half or two thirds of a team, Nubs and Tree Fiddi still manage to post results. Call it the crafty coach's tricks or just pure skill, we'll be intrigued so see how far the Chorfs can go

Notable Additions/Losses

Out of the many, many casualties - Khatan Hollowheart's death (Blodge, Guard, MB, SF Blocker) is the biggest, and most difficult to replace.

Best Result

vs Masters of the Bloodverse Week 2

Next Four Games

Bye, Bushrangers, Henson Hooligans, Killing Chorf

How Did The Experts Fare?

Made us look foolish in Weeks 1-3, though saved face as his record evened out. The run home will be too much without a full team we fear. (5th - 10th)

Winning is a Bonus (Dwarves 1820) - by Warhammerfrog

Current Record 8th 2-3-2 (0)

Story So Far

Clue's in the title - the results are nice, but the blood spilt and carnage left behind is the goal. If we're marking Frog on that? Then so far Season 14's been a big success.

Notable Additions/Losses

Usually on the supply side of pain, the Dwarves unfortunately started off Season 14 with the loss of their Troll Slayer - Thank you Kanye (MB, Juggernaut, Tackle).

Best Result

vs Celestialmancers Week 5

Next Four Games

Those Norscan Buggers, The Dark Arcana, Catastrophy, Bushrangers

How Did The Experts Fare?

Despite aiming for bloodshed and damage, Frog's carved out a nice spot entering the mid-way point of the Season. With 3-4 winnable games ahead, the Dwarves could be a surprise packet for playoffs. (3rd - 9th)

Killing Chorf (Chaos Dwarves 1860) - by NaClSalt

Current Record 9th 2-1-4 (-1)

Story So Far

For every overachiever, there's got to be an underperformer and unfortunately so far NaClSalt's just not finding the results he's after. Either a tough draw, bit of misfortune of a combination of both, there's still time for Killing Chorf to right the ship yet.

Notable Additions/Losses

Aside from a few expendable Hobgoblins? It's been a great development season so far for Salt's Blockers.

Best Result

vs Those Norscan Buggers Week 5

Next Four Games

WrackleMania, Scintillant Snotballz, Masters of the Bloodverse, Tree Fiddi

How Did The Experts Fare?

High expectations for this Season from us have unfortunately failed to materialise. Salt's looking at best like a Challenger's Cup qualifier. (4th - 10th)

Those Norscan Buggers! (Norse 2080) - by Werecaster

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

Story So Far

It's a milestone week for Werecaster and Those Norscan Buggers - posting back to back wins for the first time since Season 12 Week 6. Whilst the burst of form is great to see, it doesn’t quiet gloss over the rough season they've endured.

Notable Additions/Losses

With the number of perms Werecaster's collected so far? It's a minor miracle that he's got a team. Nothing terribly major of note so far.

Best Result

vs The Dark Arcana Week 6

Next Four Games

Winning is a Bonus, Archaon's First Chosen, Bye, Scintillant Snotballz

How Did The Experts Fare?

The previous two wins have temporarily boosted Werecaster's position but make no mistake, a low table finish is in store for those Norscan Buggers (10th - 14th)

Scintillant Snotballz (Goblins 1460) - by Dalryk

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

Story So Far

The biggest compliment I can give to the Scintillant Snotballz is that they can't be treated like a stunty team - Dalryk managing to create a legitimate, difficult match up week in and week out even in Division Two is all I need to say.

Notable Additions/Losses

Despite having Trolls made of glass most of the time? Shockingly healthy.

Best Result

vs Catastrophy Week 5

Next Four Games

Masters of the Bloodverse, Killing Chorf, The Dark Arcana, Those Norscan Buggers

How Did The Experts Fare?

big fan of the Snotballz, just been unfortunate that the 50/50 results have so far gone all against them. Will play spoiler for sure but unlikely to see post-season this time round. (6th - 12th)

The Delf Experiment (Dark Elves 1640) - by AussieVikingr

Current Record 12th 1-2-4 (-5)

Story So Far

Started one of the favourites this season, but just wasn't meant to be. Coach AussieVikingr throwing in the towel mid-season, shutting down the Experiment for a sad ending. You will be missed mate.

Notable Additions/Losses

Finished up for Season 14

Best Result

vs Bushrangers Week 5

Next Four Games

N/A

How Did The Experts Fare?

We had high hopes, but it no longer matters. Hope to see you back in the future. (N/A)

Catastrophy (Chaos 2110) - by Findeco

Current Record 13th 1-2-4 (-5)

Story So Far

There have been glimpses are the Catastrophy of old, however it's apparent that father time looks like he's got a firm hold on several key players, battering multiple niggling injuries. Might be time for some new blood.

Notable Additions/Losses

Cole (Block, Tackle, MB, Guard, Claw Warrior) & Robo-Fortune (Agi 4, MA 7, AV 7, Block Beastman) both dead. Edgar (Blodge, MB Warrior), Custard (Block, Claw POMB, Tackle, Pro Beastman), Taokaka (Blodge, Guard, Leader, 3x Permed Beastman) all busted within a several week span. Been a rough start for sure.

Best Result

vs Killing Chorf Week 2

Next Four Games

Bushrangers, Celestialmancers, Winning is a Bonus, Henson Hooligans

How Did The Experts Fare?

In our eyes, underperformed this season. Only 1 win from 7 games won't get you into Play-Offs or Challenger's Cup (10th - 14th)

The Dark Arcana (Dark Elves 1560) - by Tommo

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

Story So Far

Promoted into an unenviable spot and had to endure a brutal onslaught of a Season so far. Very much playing for next season at this stage.

Notable Additions/Losses

In 7 games The Dark Arcana have lost over 100 SPP worth of players - for a team entering itss 2nd Season, just brutal. Enmity however (STR 4 Witch) might be the future building block of this team's next Season.

Best Result

vs Killing Chorf Week 1

Next Four Games

Henson Hooligans, Winning is a Bonus, Scintillant Snotballz, WrackleMania

How Did The Experts Fare?

The coach is willing, but the team has been able to hold up for more that 7-9 turns per game. Rebuilding on the mind here. (10th - 14th)



Casters' Curse (Dark Elves 1690) - by serj

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

Story So Far

Kicking off Division Three is the newest ladder leader - Serj and the Casters' Curse. After fighting tooth and nail after the set-back lose to then leader Disn'Orc, Serj enters the mid-way point of the Season in control of his own destiny.

Notable Additions/Losses

Hors d'oeuvre's (STR 4, Wrestle, Tackle, Witch Elf) emergence into Superstardom is just the latest stat freak to join an incredible team.

Best Result

vs Mount Grimfang Thunderers Week 2

Next Four Games

The Rat Pack, Blue-tongued Bruisers, Infested Rodents, The Way of the Leaf

How Did The Experts Fare?

Predicted as a lock for Top 3 and looking strong, sometimes we get it right. (1st - 3rd)

Mount Grimfang Thunderers (Dwarves 1520) - by Trouk

Current Record 2nd 5-1-1 (+4)

Story So Far

Right in his tail is GMAN import Trouk and the menacing Mount Grimfang Thunderers. Currently just one TD behind the Elves after storming up the ladder with 5 straight wins, pressure will be on as they look to lock up Division 3's only playoff spot.

Notable Additions/Losses

Trouk's welcome to Big O was a rough one, with Sergeant Flowers (Guard, MB, SF Blocker) getting niggled and fired in their first game down under.

Best Result

vs Dead Moon Night Week 4

Next Four Games

Infested Rodents, Skavenblight Zephers, Monster Mash, Disn'Orc

How Did The Experts Fare?

A pleasant surprise, the Division looked rather tough for the Dwarves but so far, they're adapted exceptionally. (2nd - 6th)

Disn'Orc (Orcs 1540) - by DestructionDarb

Current Record 3rd 5-0-2 (+6)

Story So Far

After leading all season long, fending back all rivals it was the stunty demons that brought Disn'Orc crashing down to earth and into 3rd place. However, the Season is not yet lost, there's still plenty of Bloodbowl to come.

Notable Additions/Losses

In a play that's haunted Darby's dreams, L'Orc King (STR 4, MB, Tackle Blitzer) was ruthlessly killed by the crowd from an uphill chain push play.

Best Result

vs Casters' Curse Week 4

Next Four Games

Skavenblight Zephers, Dead Moon Night, The Provisonal Governmen, Mount Grimfang Thunderers

How Did The Experts Fare?

A brief hiccup shouldn't prevent a Top 3 finish for Darby's Orcs. The clear 2nd choice to win the Division outside of Serj's Elves. (1st - 3rd)

Monster_Mash o_o (Necromanic 1630) - by Scarecrow_Jr

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

Story So Far

The dark horse of Division 3 - Scarecrow's Necromantic but come along leaps and bounds since their rookie days and pose as the most dangerous, well rounded threat in the Division.

Notable Additions/Losses

Name a more iconic combo than Scarecrow and dead Wolves? Lorlag the Roarer (Blodge Wolf) joins the growing list of would be monsters put down early.

Best Result

vs Disn'Orc Week 2

Next Four Games

Kiss the left, The Rat Pack, Mount Grimfang Thunderers, Macau Squig Raiders

How Did The Experts Fare?

Again, on the money - Hailed as the pre-season dark horse and looking every bit the danger entering the business end of the Season. (3rd - 7th)

Blue-tongued Bruisers (Lizards 1640) - by schlice

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

Story So Far

Like the Sword of Damocles - Schlice's big, bad, blue bruisers continued development have kept rivals on their toes. It almost feels inevitable that the Lizards are on the verge of a massive scalp.

Notable Additions/Losses

Aside from several dead skinks (they don't count), it's been smooth sailing for the Lizards

Best Result

vs The Provisional Governmen Week 2

Next Four Games

Dead Moon Night, Casters' Curse, Macau Squig Raiders, Infested Rodents

How Did The Experts Fare?

Despite a rough draw for the Lizards, Schlice has managed to place himself into contention. Play-Offs? Unlikely but a strong contender for the Challenger's Cup. (2nd - 8th)

[BO]The Rat Pack (Skaven 1480) - by CheetoBandito

Current Record 6th 3-2-2 (+4)

Story So Far

The best of the Skaven trio so far in Season 14 and by far the most aggressive - The Rat Pack have been the cause of plenty of sleepless nights for coaches and excitement for the fans.

Notable Additions/Losses

The biggest addition to Cheeto's squad has been Rat Damon's (MB, Claw Blitzer) development into a legitimate killer, finally getting through the journey that is Block/Claw purgatory.

Best Result

vs Macau Squig Raiders Week 2

Next Four Games

Casters' Curse, Monster Mash, Way of the Leaf, Skavenblight Zephers

How Did The Experts Fare?

Despite a couple of tough results going against him, Cheeto's still the biggest threat outside of the Top 4 to make Play-Offs/Challenger's Cup. This week's game vs Serj will be massive. (2nd - 8th)

The Provisional Governmen (Kislev 1580) - by liamcoulston

Current Record 7th 3-1-3 (+4)

Story So Far

Two words to describe The Provisional Governmen: High Variance. Season 14 has seen both incredible wins and unbelievable losses for Liam. The key will always be if he can bridge the gap between his Kislev's best and worst.

Notable Additions/Losses

The retirement of star Catcher Alexander Guchov (MA 8, Blodge, Guard) was devastating for Liam's season - along with Victor Chernov (Wrestle, Guard Lineman) in the same game!

Best Result

vs The Rat Pack Week 4

Next Four Games

The Way of the Leaf, Kiss the left, Disn'Orc, HFIL XI

How Did The Experts Fare?

Probably too far back to make a run for Top 2-3, the Kislev will be aggressively hunting that last Challenger's Cup spot (4th - 8th)

Dead Moon Night (Necromanic 1590) - by Uhuru

Current Record 8th 3-1-3 (0)

Story So Far

It's been a frustrating season for Uhuru so far. The Dead Moon Night currently are stuck, better than the mid-table teams but not good enough to trouble the top end. Something has to change to get out of no-man's land.

Notable Additions/Losses

Star carrier EarNibbler (Agi 4, Blodge, Sure Hands Ghoul) was unfortunately a victim of friendly fire on two counts. Firstly, being accidentally surfed into a beer fuelled home crowd and secondly being stomped into retirement by said crowd.

Best Result

vs The Provisional Governmen Week 5

Next Four Games

Blue-tongued Bruisers, Disn'Orc, Skavenblight Zephers, Kiss the left

How Did The Experts Fare?

Uhuru's been a victim of a tough draw for Season 14 and remains a long shot here post-season as a result. Games vs Schlice and Darby in Weeks 8 & 9 will either prolong or finish his season. (4th - 8th)

Infested Rodents (Skaven 1230) - by PsychedlicPanda

Current Record 9th 3-0-4 (-1)

Story So Far

An incredibly hot start followed by a rough 4 game stretch - Panda's 1st season in the Majors has been a mixed bag. Consistency will come with the experience, it's just a matter of taking it one game at a time.

Notable Additions/Losses

A bloodbath in Week 4 saw Panda lose his best Killer - Neehj (MB/Tackle Storm Vermin) was retired to an armour bust in the brutal Skaven mirror.

Best Result

vs Monster Mash Week 1

Next Four Games

Mount Grimfang Thunderers, HFIL XI, Casters' Curse, Blue-tongued Bruisers

How Did The Experts Fare?

Surprisingly similar to Cheeto's skaven, been a case of missed opportunities and poor fortune. Most likely reserved to playing spoiler for the rest of the Season (6th - 10th)

Macau Squig Raiders (Orcs 1720) - by Balwen

Current Record 10th 3-0-4 (-5)

Story So Far

A bit like Panda, The Raider's season has been up and down after a tough start. Unfortunately, Balwen will need to pull some results together quickly or else they'll be looking at another long- post-season break.

Notable Additions/Losses

Starting of the Season in style, we saw Balwen's star utility Sorhuk (Tackle, MB, Guard, Dauntless Blitzer) die and not even attempted to be revived. Cold blooded.

Best Result

vs Skavenblight Zephers Week 5

Next Four Games

HFIL XI, The Way of the Leaf, Blue-tongued Bruisers, Monster Mash

How Did The Experts Fare?

Sitting right now as the smallest "bash" team in the Division, Balwen's desperately in need of a good few weeks of development to re-tool for Season 15. (9th - 14th)

HFIL XI (Orcs 1370) - by Krusader

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

Story So Far

Division 3 isn't hell, but at times it's sure felt like it for the HFIL XI. Most recently looking battered, bruised and outclassed against the top contenders. Hopefully the 2nd half of the season holds better fortunes.

Notable Additions/Losses

Week 7, Six AV breaks for 3 Deaths. Frieza (MA 7, Guard, Sure Hands Blitzer) & Android 20 (POMB, Jump Up Blitzer) among the body count.

Best Result

vs The Way of the Leaf Week 4

Next Four Games

Macau Squig Raiders, Infested Rodents, Kiss the left, The Provisional Governmen

How Did The Experts Fare?

Perhaps Balwen isn't the smallest bash team - Post Week 7 HFIL XI takes that crown for certain. Krusader's hopes for post-season are as alive as his departed Blitzer, though still offers a danger for the remainder of the Season. 11th - 14th)

Skavenblight Zephers (Skaven 1670) - by Tots-Vile

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

Story So Far

The unluckiest coach in the Division in my mind - there's a world where Tots-Vile is reasonably sitting up with the leaders about 5-1-1, however a handful of brutal beatdowns and heartbreaking draws have crippled his season.

Notable Additions/Losses

It's been a rough season to be a Zepher, but none have had it worse than Stritk (Agi 5, Blodge, Guard Gutter Runner). Niggled and Armour busted in back to back games saw his retirement shortly after to re-access his life choices.

Best Result

vs Infested Rodents Week 4

Next Four Games

Disn'Orc, Mount Grimfang Thunderers, Dead Moon Night, The Rat Pack

How Did The Experts Fare?

Hyper competitive, but still can't finish off games. Season 14's just about done and dusted for the Zephers sadly. (8th - 12th)

The Way of the Leaf (Halflings 930) - by Chubberson

Current Record 14th 1-0-6 (-9)

Story So Far

Big O's finest Fling - The Way of the Leaf again look like the smallest fish in a massive pond, but one can't look past the crafty veteran - just ask Darby.

Notable Additions/Losses

Minor flings die, Black Wind and Tree's live on - just another day in the office for Chubberson

Best Result

vs Disn'Orc Week 7

Next Four Games

The Provisional Governmen, Macau Squig Raiders, The Rat Pack, Caster's Curse

How Did The Experts Fare?

Tough environment for Flings. Chubberson will snatch another win, I'm certain but 2 Wins don’t make a successful Season. (12th - 14th)

Kiss the left (Kislev 1210) - by Baykerz

Current Record 14th 1-0-6 (-11)

Story So Far

As good as Baykerz's Season 13 was, his Season 14 has been awful. A devastating combination of rough results, dice and injuries just piling on a young Kislev team. Playing for next season.

Notable Additions/Losses

At this stage, probably easier asking what's left. Only the two Catchers that remain have any semblance of value as Baykerz's Kislev have just be obliterated.

Best Result

vs Way of the Leaf Week 1

Next Four Games

Monster Mash, The Provisional Governmen, HFIL XI, Dead Moon Night

How Did The Experts Fare?

Rebuilding or Rerolling - take your pick lads. Tough result for Baykerz, that's for certain. (12th - 14th)
