Ok, I have one too: a priest, a rabbi, and a donkey walk into a bar....

Wait! People on these forums, some with green names, keep telling me that BB is all about a niche audience of fans of the tabletop game and thus any product being rolled out will obviously be aimed at that niche rather than the mass market. I may need you to elaborate on this in smaller, easier words so I can understand it properly.... are you saying that Cyanide and Focus are planning to market this to the general gaming public rather than being niche-focused?

You're blowing my mind, man.... you're blowing my mind!

Spreading the word about Bloodbowl is not preventing the game from aiming at satisfying the fans of the tabletop game.

The goal is to reach the biggest audience by releasing a rock solid game which satisfy the hardcore fans. If you enjoy the content of our game, it means that we succeeded in translating the feeling of the tabletop game in the videogame. If Bloodbowl fans enjoy it, it means that it's a pretty solid game for everyone else ;)

A bigger player base means a bigger community. We want to extend the community by offering the best game possible and it involves communicating on a big scale!

So Netheos, let's have a straight answer to a straight question.

Will we have the option to play a full version of CRP blood bowl with out all the extra stuff?

Will we have all the stars (eventually) and all the skills working correctly?

Additional question: will there be an option to use alternative skills or rosters e.g. like CRP+?

After questioning my colleagues to have some information, I'll try my best to answer!

Will we have the option to play a full version of CRP blood bowl with out all the extra stuff?


What do you mean by "extra stuff"?
If that's stuff like the marketplace, it takes place out of the "game" itself and you can avoid all of them. In the Bloodbowl games themselves, Competition Rules are respected as much as possible.

Will we have all the stars (eventually) and all the skills working correctly?


Some Starplayers will be available at launch and we will add more of them over time.
Concerning the skills, the answer is yes. They have been tested during several months and are still tested on a "no graph/no AI" version of the game by a large group of people: not only developers but also members of the community selected on this forum ;).

Additional question: will there be an option to use alternative skills or rosters e.g. like CRP+?


No, Bloodbowl 2 is a videogame adaptation of the 6th version of the Bloodbowl Rules.

Great. The old fogies will like that.

Hmm...

I suppose you have to be realistic about these things.

Netheos wrote:Some Starplayers will be available at launch and we will add more of them over time.


They are meant to help balance the game so a team should have all it's stars.

OK. We'll see when the time comes.
