It's the eve of a new season, the air's full of electricity, excitement and confidence that will surely last until post game one of Season 14. To help ring in the new season we've got the latest edition of the Big O Pre-Season Preview! A seasonal staple almost. To those new to this article? 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!

 

 


Shadowhill Cowboys (Dark Elves 1670) - by Sandune

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

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

After a successful return to ReBBL in Season 13, Sandune and the legendary Shadowhill Cowboys look to extend their legacy with yet another season within the premier Division of the Big O.

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

The man's rather good at Bloodbowl and the team's intact, though a touch smaller. Should be another strong season from the master (1st - 3rd)

Never Swapping (Necromantic 1720) - by Djoolyurn

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

Play Style:

Methodical

Star Player:

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

Brief Bio:

Staking claim to Big O's deepest Playoff run last season, the ever consistent Djoolyurn and his undead menace - Never Swapping still are the gold standard for Necromantic teams in the Big O.

What they say:

Playoffs

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

No matter how battered and minimal the team looks, Djoolyurn has proven that he can't be counted out. (1st - 6th)

Boo Khaki Seamen Spray (Necromantic 2020) - by Munkey Chunks

Last Seasons Result: Big O 1 6th (7-1-5)

Play Style:

Watching frustrated as my two Wolves invaraibly fail to deliver, week after week

Star Player:

Gentleman's Relish - Block, Kick Zombie

Brief Bio:

Season 13 ended in typical MunkeyChunks form - barely missing playoffs after being so close all season. Will Season 14 finally to the place where the Spray is set to explode?

What they say:

We always seem to finish a game out of the top spots - hopefully we can get enough points to make it through this season

What the rest say:

2th - 6th

What the *experts* say:

Team says yes, but the coach has an infamous (and well deserved) reputation here in the Big O. No idea if he'll be playoff bound or bride maiden once again (3rd - 9th)

Flying Rainbow Ponies (High Elves 1850) - by HirumaMajere

Last Seasons Result: Big O 1 11th (4-2-7)

Play Style:

Aerial Magick

Star Player:

Aeris Dixisse - Agi 5, Accurate, Block, Dodge, Sure Hands Thrower

Brief Bio:

One of Big O's last remaining legacy teams - Hiruma's Flying Rainbow Ponies had a rough go last season, but one can never count out the sheer audacity of the aerial onslaught from the High Elves.

What they say:

Mid-table and broken

What the rest say:

7th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

It's a brutal Division for the Ponies, though Agi 5 Elves will always have an out (5th - 12th)

Zoltans Zwords (Chaos Dwarves 2150) - by MrMonster

Last Seasons Result: Big O 1 12th (3-2-8)

Play Style:

Big bully bash

Star Player:

Bloody Bonebreaker - Claw, POMB, Guard, Pro Blocker

Brief Bio:

The Premier Chorf team that Big O has to offer, Season 14 stands as the litmus test for MrMonster. The team is ready, can Zoltons Zwords finally deliver on their potential?

What they say:

4th

What the rest say:

5th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

On paper? Should finish Top 5, however nothing is won pre-game. A must perform season here for MrMonster (4th - 10th)

Damage Incorporated. (Nurgle 1950) - by JamusMcgamuS

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

Play Style:

Boring ol nurgle

Star Player:

Zhua - STR 5, MB, Guard, Block Warrior

Brief Bio:

A dominate Season 13 in Division 2 has heralded the arrival of the next Nurgle invasion - Damage Incorporated, coached by Jamus enter Division 1 almost entering their prime. Will Season 14 be a repeat for the talented coach?

What they say:

Not sure. Somewhere in the top 8?

What the rest say:

2nd - 6th

What the *experts* say:

Fantastic coach with a team at the cusp of greatness. Season 14 should be the season where Jamus stamps his claim as one of Big O's elite (1st - 6th)

Filthy, Stinkin' Elves (Pro Elves 2020) - by serpickles

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 2nd (9-2-2)

Play Style:

Flip that switch! Score hard and fast, and then be patient and ready to pounce on defense.

Star Player:

Putrid Pritchard - STR 4, Agi 3, Dodge, Tackle, Frenzy Blitzer

Brief Bio:

At the eve of Season 14, serpickle's Filthy, Stinkin' Elves have only sustained 4 losses across two seasons - with half of those taking during Playoffs. How long can serpickle's maintain such an incredible record for? We'll have to find out!

What they say:

I hope to be top 4 to make Playoffs for a 3rd season running.

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

A heavy favourite and for good reason. Arguably the biggest Pro Elf team to reach start a season of Division One and in the hands of a capable coach (1st - 6th)

Heavy Metal Massacre (Necromantic 1850) - by Starkeweather

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

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

The coach is an enigma, combining plays of sheer gall, madness and skill across the bloodbowl pitch. Whilst Heavy Metal Massacre enter as the smallest dog in the Necro fight, Stark might be the craftiest and you can never count him out.

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

5th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Starke man, there's no predicting with one will rock up to a game, let alone how he'll manage over a season. (4th - 14th)

Who Bat (Vampires 1750) - by MisspelledTree

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

Play Style:

Eat team-mates. Feel sad. Click agility 6 vampire & hope.

Star Player:

Count Amadán the Vain - Agi 6, Block, Dodge, Sidestep, Sure Hands Vampire

Brief Bio:

Vampires, despite their development will always two things - unpredictable on the pitch and amazing to watch in action. How MisspelledTree will manage in a bash heavy environment? All we know is it'll be chaos.

What they say:

Every season we finish somewhere in the middle. But honestly, I think we might be nearer the bottom this time.

What the rest say:

7th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

Vampires are wild card, even if they're Agi 6. Could be a contender, most likely making up the numbers (4th - 10th)

Warc Machine III (Orcs 1920) - by Lyskaris

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

Play Style:

Control, Fail 2+, Draw, Repeat

Star Player:

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

Brief Bio:

Big O once again has its Orcs back into Division One, however they're a shell of their former selves. With predators lurking and wolves on the doorstep, will Season 14 be the last for the Warc Machine?

What they say:

Boy, this season might be a brutal one for the Big Orcs. Five tickets leaves it open but there's a lot of claw to get through before that

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Blitzer core is non-existent and a sheer lack of MB, Tackle and Guard to brawl. Possibly a long season for the Orcs (7th - 12th)

Attack on Tolkien (Lizards 1640) - by Linen

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 7th (4-6-3)

Play Style:

Inconceivable upsets with a side of Immortal Skinks. Induce Slibli.

Star Player:

Spice and Woolf - Agi 4, Block, Sidestep, Sure Feet Skink

Brief Bio:

The ultimate underdog, Linen and the underrated, overachieving reptiles - Attack on Tolkien enter as the dark horse for Season 14. Surely the upset king can't repeat the heroics of seasons past… again?

What they say:

Not gonna lie, getting a playoff ticket this season would be legendary. Though realistically 8th-ish?

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

As much as I love watching Linen play, he's the small dog that's been thrown to the wolves. A kind draw will be vital (7th - 12th)

Chaos from Laos (Chaos 2110) - by rsVordoca

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 8th (4-4-5)

Play Style:

Admiralistic

Star Player:

The Admiral - Ma 6, Agi 5, Block, Sure Hands, Two Heads Warrior

Brief Bio:

A cult favourite and now officially legendary - rsVordoca's Chaos from Laos are the sole Chaos team in Division One, so it'll fall upon them to deliver the Admiral's righteous fury in Season 14.

What they say:

Don’t think the lads are ready for DIV 1. They need another season to get some more claw as well as 3-4 players with very long legs.

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

The top talent is fantastic, but incredibly shallow and yet still bloaty. Might be deja'vu from Season 12 (8th - 14th)

Trump's Chumps (Nurgle 2130) - by Yabby69

Last Seasons Result: Big O 1 Season 11 - 7th (3-8-2)

Play Style:

Bash / Remove

Star Player:

Andrew G. McCabe - DP, Block, Kick, Fend Rotter

Brief Bio:

Just when you think Big O's almost clear of Nurgle, Trump's Chumps makes a comeback. After setting a then record 8 draws in Season 11, can Yabby turn his comeback tour into a Playoff debut?

What they say:

Middle of the pack

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Big Nurgle, quality coach. Question marks on some rust and a few fresh Warriors but solid be a contender (4th - 10th)

d'V'nter Devils (Necromantic 2280) - by SirSebstar

Last Seasons Result: GMAN 3A 2nd (9-1-3)

Play Style:

Sucky and risky potato-plays, aiming at removals

Star Player:

Richard Ravager, AKA Ghoulzilla - STR 4, Agi 5 Block, Sure Hands Ghoul

Brief Bio:

The latest of imports arriving to Big O's shores - SirSebstar and the d'V'nter Devils will face their biggest regular season test for Season 14.

What they say:

As long as my 2 stars survice, ill end up close near the top 4, otherwise last 4

What the rest say:

5th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Stacked across the line, this team alone should be able to carry most coaches to success. It's just a matter of survival (1st - 6th)



Masters of the Bloodverse (Vampires 1710) - by Yasmir

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 9th (4-4-5)

Play Style:

Hypnotic

Star Player:

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

Brief Bio:

The lone Vampires of Division Two - none other than He-Vamp and the Masters of the Bloodverse! Unlucky not to be in Division One, however Yasmir looks set appear what he couldn't last season, take out top spot!

What they say:

Top 3

What the rest say:

1st - 4th

What the *experts* say:

We want to pick Yasmir to make playoffs - great coach but it's just Vampires are so unpredictable. We'll have to see how he's tracking mid-season (3rd - 9th)

WrackleMania (Chaos 1850) - by Cat Attack Man

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 10th (4-3-6)

Play Style:

Break armour or bust.

Star Player:

Junkyard Dog - MA 5, Block, Claw, POMB Beastman

Brief Bio:

Arguably the best team across the Big O from Week 9 onwards, Cat Attack Man and his Chaos - WrackleMania have arrived and are primed for a massive Season 14.

What they say:

Not sure I'm in the top couple, so I'll say 3rd-6th.

What the rest say:

5th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

WrackleMania's approaching critical mass entering their 3rd season and it might be time to start keeping eyes of CAM. Playoff bound? Fair chance (3rd - 9th)

Killing Chorf (Chaos Dwarves 1840) - by NaClSalt

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 11th (4-2-7)

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

After paying his dues last season, Killing Chorf is ready to take names and wins games. Will NaCl be able to live up to the hype?

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

3rd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

From the fresh kid in Div 2 to possible juggernaut. NaCl's good enough to win it, though potentially missing Week 1 puts a damper on any prediction (4th - 10th)

Those Norscan Buggers! (Norse 1900) - by Werecaster

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 14th (2-0-11)

Play Style:

Play style, what is this "play style" you speak off?

Star Player:

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

Brief Bio:

Infamous for his unique player builds and wild games, Those Norscan Buggers are a crowd favourite and are back for another crazy season!

What they say:

This season I'll burn brightly!...... By which I mean we are literally on fire please god someone put us out!.

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Applying logic to anything Werecaster does in Bloodbowl is a lost cause. I'll say he'll bottom out based off of last season (6th - 12th)

Tree Fiddi (Chaos Dwarves 1580) - by Nubs11

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

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

Winners of Division 3 last season and very much carrying the scars from their success. Nubs will start under the gun in Season 14 be expected to perform yet again.

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

1st - 4th

What the *experts* say:

The team got battered in Week 13 & during the playoffs. Will need to rebuild his fresh Blockers ASAO if he's any chance competing (6th - 12th)

Henson Hooligans (Lizards 1710) - by Popsicle

Last Seasons Result: Big O 3 2nd (8-1-4)

Play Style:

New plan every turn, if i don't know what's going on, how could my opponent?

Star Player:

Oscar - STR 6, Block Saurus

Brief Bio:

Stormed home last season to pinch Division 3's last playoff spot and didn't not disappoint. Is Popsicle capable of doing one better? Make it back to back playoffs?

What they say:

Top 5 (probably 3-5)

What the rest say:

3rd - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Popiscle turned some heads during last season's playoffs and looks set to be a frontrunner yet again (3rd - 9th)

Archaon's First Chosen (Chaos 1390) - by GreySquirrel

Last Seasons Result: Big O 3 4th (8-0-5)

Play Style:

Kill everything and hope there's a touchdown as well

Star Player:

Maks Rustlust - Block, MB, Claw, Tackle Warrior

Brief Bio:

Managed 8 wins last season and just pissed playoffs - GreySquirrel enters Season 14 with under season of development under his belt and a massive chip of his shoulder, sharing a division with previous rivals.

What they say:

Top 5, once I get my minotaur back I'll be fine

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Being the smallest of three Chaos in a Division is not an enviable position. A strong first half for development may see a strong run home (6th - 12th)

The Delf Experiment (Dark Elves 1740) - by AussieVikingr

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

Play Style:

50% solid play 50% elf Bullshit

Star Player:

Nollsy - MA 9, Dodge Blitzer

Brief Bio:

After multiple mid-game results, is it time for The Delf Experiment to bear fruit? Coach AussieVikingr sure hopes so, looking to take the next step this season.

What they say:

Middle of the table to potentially Top 4

What the rest say:

2nd - 6th

What the *experts* say:

Aussie looks set to be a contender once again with a stacked Dark Elf team. The draw will see if he'll be towards the top or middle table (4th - 10th)

Scintillant Snotballz (Goblins 1500) - by Dalryk

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

Play Style:

Punch things, then stomp on them, then run away

Star Player:

Tumble - Pro, Block, Tackle, BT, Guard Troll

Brief Bio:

The premier Goblin team in ReBBL (don't @ me keandere and fresh division wanna-bes) - Dalryk is the one true Goblin king, consistently getting results in developed, competitive divisions. Once again, we'll be cheering on Snotballz

What they say:

If I get above halfway I'll be happy

What the rest say:

8th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

In this humble expert's opinion, the finest Stunty coach in ReBBL today. Will it correlate in success this Season? Unlikely (6th - 12th)

Bushrangers (Norse 2030) - by Thorce

Last Seasons Result: Big O 3 9th (5-3-5)

Play Style:

Failing Upwards with AV7 Block Elves

Star Player:

Benjamin "Brave" Hall - Agi 4, Strong Arm, Leader, Accurate Thrower

Brief Bio:

One of the hardest teams/coaches to predict in the Big O (which covers a lot of ground). Thorce is definitely capable of string wins together, just a matter of doing it consistently.

What they say:

Last place

What the rest say:

4th - 9th

What the *experts* say:

Big nasty Norse team with an untested coach. Will be a big season for Thorce if he's looking to take the next step (6th - 12th)

Celestialmancers (Lizards 1510) - by Gorrin

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5B 2nd (6-3-3)

Play Style:

Hope I pow blodgers and that when/if my opp snakes I can take advantage.

Star Player:

Luna - MA 9, STR 3, Block Skink

Brief Bio:

Entered 5B a week later, won the Division. That's a hell of an accolade. Made playoffs but clearly the team wasn't ready yet. What does Act II have in store for Gorrin?

What they say:

With less Saurus development then now. Near/at the bottom.

What the rest say:

9th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

Gorrin was fantastic in his rookie season, so we're curious how he'll hold up against bigger, badder teams (4th - 10th)

The Dark Arcana (Dark Elves 1620) - by Tommo

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5A 1st (7-2-0)

Play Style:

Rolls 1s and Skulls at the worst possible time

Star Player:

Resolution - Agi 5, Block Witch Elf

Brief Bio:

Arguably stiff to ended up here in Division 3 after missing Playoffs AND Challenger's due to the Play-Ins, but here are the facts - No fresh team had a better record in season 13 than Tommo. None. Multiple time playoff coach in his own right, now he's after yet another appearance with his favoured team.

What they say:

Mid-bottom half

What the rest say:

1st - 4th

What the *experts* say:

The man's good enough, he's been in this position before. We'll take the punt here and back him for a top table finish (1st - 6th)

Catastrophy (Chaos 2380) - by Findeco

Last Seasons Result: Big O 2 Season 12 - 7th (6-1-6)

Play Style:

Murder

Star Player:

Claire - Claw, Block, Tackle, SF Minotaur

Brief Bio:

Returning after a season off is Big O's resident wrecking ball and murder enthusiast Findeco! Neutrals surely to be pleased as many a pitch will be stained blood red in Season 14.

What they say:

Last

What the rest say:

2nd - 6th

What the *experts* say:

Finn's got the team so bulldoze his way through, though he's got the well earned reputation of playing his own way (3rd - 9th)

Winning is a Bonus (Dwarves 1780) - by Warhammerfrog

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5A Season 10 - 5th (5-1-6)

Play Style:

Winning is a Bonus

Star Player:

The Tree of Liberty - POMB, Tackle, Pro Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Speaking of returns, we've got Warhammerfrog and his… well ominously named dwarves "Winning is a Bonus". Might be a long season for the other 13 coaches if he has his way.

What they say:

Probably will endure quite a few injuries. No idea of placement.

What the rest say:

8th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

Clue's in the title. Frog will snag a few wins by that appears to not be the main goal (8th - 12th)



The Way of the Leaf (Halflings 1030) - by Chubberson

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

Play Style:

A little dirty.

Star Player:

The Black Wind - Agi 4, MA 6, Sprint, Sure Feet, Catch Halfling

Brief Bio:

Rumours of their demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated, The Way of the Leaf have returned for another season! As Chubberson looks to create more history with his legendary Halfling team.

What they say:

Top 5

What the rest say:

10th - 14th

What the *experts* say:

We've got a special place here for Chubberson, a stunty legend but Division 3 looks like a bad, bad environment for the Flings (6th - 12th)

Macau Squig Raiders (Orcs 1820) - by Balwen

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

Play Style:

Standard bashy Orc coach base up and hope for some armour breaks

Star Player:

Goraf - POMB, JU, Tackle, Juggernaut Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Big, Mean & Green - the Macau Squig Raiders have returned. A main course of fresh teams looks to be on the cards as the title of next "Big Orc" is up for grabs here.

What they say:

Mid table

What the rest say:

8th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

On paper the biggest bash in Division 3, however I'm still not convinced yet that Balwen can put together a season that'll get him to playoffs yet (6th - 12th)

Kiss the left (Kislev 1440) - by Baykerz

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5B 1st (5-3-1)

Play Style:

Know when to risk it for the biscuit

Star Player:

Deadly Kizzer - Agi 4, Dodge Blitzer

Brief Bio:

The one season Kislev dream! Last season Baykerz exploded onto the scene and made a name for himself. The team's still very top heavy, but will we see repeat?

What they say:

Middle of the pack, don't call me a dark horse this season (Sorry in advance)

What the rest say:

2nd - 8th

What the *experts* say:

From surprise packet in Season 13 to dare I say…. Dark horse? Still a had fresh for my liking but we can't ignore how Baykerz just finds ways to win (4th - 10th)

Casters' Curse (Dark Elves 1640) - by serj

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

Play Style:

Still figuring it out. Better at D than O.

Star Player:

Worcestershire - Agi 5, Dodge, Leap Blitzer

Brief Bio:

It took a bit of time last season, but it appears that Serj has finally figured out the Elf situation. That added with an absurd number of stats rolled puts the Casters' Curse in a prime position to achieve greatness.

What they say:

4th

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

Barring an absolute collapse (re: vs Darby in OSI) Serj should be a lock for Top 3. Both the team and coach are too good to miss here (1st - 3rd)

[BO]The Rat Pack (Skaven 1610) - by CheetoBandito

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5B 6th (4-2-3)

Play Style:

Sack the ball at all costs

Star Player:

Jim Capybara - Strong Arm, Block, Accurate Thrower

Brief Bio:

The more consistent (and aggressive) of the two returning Skaven teams, Cheeto will be looking to go one better than last season's near miss.

What they say:

Top 3

What the rest say:

2nd - 6th

What the *experts* say:

Cheeto was stiff to miss out Play-Ins from last season, so I'm fully expecting him to double down and not repeat his previous mistakes 2nd - 6th

The Provisional Governmen (Kislev 1740) - by liamcoulston

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5A 5th (4-1-4)

Play Style:

Aggressively hunting the ball to feed Blitzer SPP

Star Player:

Pavel Milyukov - Block, Dodge, Guard Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Rough regular season was expected for The Provisional Governmen, going 5-0-1 in the Swiss was not however. Are we set for an imminent Kislev uprising in Division 3?

What they say:

1st-6th- I'll certainly be going hard for playoffs, it seems to be 2nd season where REBBL kislev peak

What the rest say:

1st - 5th

What the *experts* say:

A tricky team to play against combined with stacks of Guard and Blodge, Liam will be hard to beat in Season 14. However, the dreaded 3+ remains a bane for any Kislev team (1st - 4th)

Dead Moon Night (Necromanic 1410) - by Uhuru

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

Play Style:

Unintentional risk-taker

Star Player:

Cpt BarkBark Scruffyface - Block, Dodge, Tackle, Werewolf

Brief Bio:

Kind of like the opposite of Liam's fortunes, Uhuru and the Dead Moon Night were near unbeatable during the regular season, though looked downright mortal in the Swiss. Which version will we be seeing Week 1?

What they say:

Top 20 fo sure. Hard to gauge since I haven't played most of these players before

What the rest say:

4th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

The smaller Necro is a tough division. A top end placing will be a hard ask here for Uhuru (5th - 12th)

Disn'Orc (Orcs 1590) - by DestructionDarb

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

Play Style:

Base Base Base

Star Player:

L'Orc King - STR 4, MB, Tackle Blitzer

Brief Bio:

The time for development is over - Vanity passes have been made and now they're out for blood. Darby and Disn'Orcs are after their fairy-tale ending, at the expense of everyone else's players.

What they say:

Pushing for playoffs

What the rest say:

1st - 3rd

What the *experts* say:

Even with a dead Blitzer late last season, Darby's Orcs are an embarrassment of riches. All 8 positionals have multiple skills, a real contender for sure (1st - 4th)

HFIL XI (Orcs 1480) - by Krusader

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

Play Style:

This season - Scotch in one hand, and a Scotch in the other…

Star Player:

Cell - POMB, Tackle Blitzer

Brief Bio:

Channelling the Orcs of old, HFIL XI's are resembling a particular Big O staple from the past. If they can manage to be half as good? I'm sure Krusader would take that in a heartbeat.

What they say:

I'll be fine in any case - Going to keep having some drinks and some fun.

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

He's the most recognisable voice in the Big O but also the host of the smallest Orcs. Might be a tough start if the draw is unkind here (6th - 12th)

Monster_Mash o_o (Necromanic 1430) - by Scarecrow_Jr

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5A 8th (2-3-4)

Play Style:

Newbie who takes a few too many risks

Star Player:

Kantarg Mingan - MB, Block Werewolf

Brief Bio:

After enduring one of the worst beatdowns I've seen in 10 Seasons of Big O Bloodbowl AND to still play on is one thing, but for Monster Mash to look as good as it does now is a credit to Scarecrow Jr. Expecting big things this season.

What they say:

Aiming for 4-6

What the rest say:

4th - 10th

What the *experts* say:

Scarecrow's team is looking really good, more so if you've followed his rookie season. Could be a dark horse here in Division Three (3rd - 8th)

Blue-tongued Bruisers (Lizards 1490) - by schlice

Last Seasons Result: Big O 5A 7th (2-4-3)

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

Boasting perhaps the nastiest frontline outside of a Khemri team, Schlice's Blue-tongued Bruisers are just that. Looking to batter and bludgeon the rest of Division 3 this season.

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

2nd - 5th

What the *experts* say:

It's the fear of the triple STR 5 frontline, but aside from that the team itself is rather bare. Will be looking to avoid the Skaven early until more Tackle comes online (4th - 10th)

Skavenblight Zephers (Skaven 1560) - by Tots-Vile

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

Play Style:

N/A

Star Player:

Did Not Reply

Brief Bio:

Blink and you'll miss it - Tots-Ville and his Skavenblight Zephers will enter Season 14 almost unheralded, but rest assured we're not letting him stay underneath the radar for too long.

What they say:

N/A

What the rest say:

4th - 9th

What the *experts* say:

Tots-Ville's record doesn't accurately reflect his competitiveness from last season and for a team boasting 2x Agi 5 Gutters, spot isn't out of reach (1st - 6th)

Mount Grimfang Thunderers (Dwarves 1590) - by Trouk

Last Seasons Result: REL 5C 1st (5-1-1)

Play Style:

Conservative

Star Player:

Papa Jeff - STR 4, Block, Dodge Runner

Brief Bio:

"In Guard We Trust" - the motto of a man from my own heart. Troukk looks set to make a warm reception from REL as everyone will surely love playing against the Guard heavy Dwarves.

What they say:

Top half of the leaderboard

What the rest say:

6th - 12th

What the *experts* say:

On paper, a mixed bag for Dwarves - however Trouk's Thunderer's have the tools to be a real problem for Division 3 (3rd - 9th)

Infested Rodents (Skaven 1300) - by PsychedlicPanda

Last Seasons Result: REBBRL Graduate - 1st Season in the Majors

Play Style:

Fast and loose, and usually the bad plays are saved by my natty 1 turner

Star Player:

Striform Cutter - MA 10, Sprint, Block, Sure Feet, Leap Gutter Runner

Brief Bio:

A fresh face and much needed new blood for the Big O. Regrettably not much is known about PsychedlicPanda, nor his Infested Rodents aside from an impressive 6-3-2 record in the Minors. How will he handle the leap up into the majors?

What they say:

If striform stays alive, i can see myself finishing in the top 4, without him probably in the bottom end

What the rest say:

4th - 8th

What the *experts* say:

Complete unknown to this expert, but the threat of the natural one turner can't be understated (2nd - 8th)


 

This has been Lyskaris, best of luck to all you Big O coaches for Season 14.
