We're pleased to announce that the Necromantic team will be joining the pitches of Blood Bowl 2 on PC/Mac Thursday September 8th around 7PM (CEST).
Full Patch Notes HERE.
The console version of the update is currently going through the certification process and should arrive in a few weeks.
In order to ease your wait, here is a first screenshot of our creepy friends:
This new update features several other changes (e.g an option to disable the auto focus of the camera during the opponent turn), as well as a brand new system for the official ladder system of the game!
With the help of several leagues administrators known among the BB2 community, we created a new ranking system (click for more details) which will be released with a new season system described below.
New Season System
- Two ladders in 2 separate leagues:
- A free ladder open to "new team" only. It's a playground where you can quickly find a game. Reset of the Leaderboard every season.
- A "competitive" ladder with strict rules ( 5 concessions maximum per coach per season, teams and leaderboard reset at the beginning of each season)
- Approximatively 2-month seasons.
- A pause of 2 days between each season in the free ladder to allow the market place to be used.
- At the end of a season in the competitive ladder, 16 coaches qualify for the seasonal playoffs. The first season will qualify the best team of each race (13 teams) + the 3 best teams at the top of the leaderboard (after removing the ones qualified thanks to the first criteria).
- The 16 coaches and their teams plays in a Knockout tournament with Cyans on the line, as well as a unique skill awarded to the MVP of the winning team of the final of the tournament: Fan Favorite. This skill is described in LRB6 as follow:
Fan Favourite[/url] (Extraordinary)
The fans love seeing this player on the pitch so much that even the opposing fans cheer for your team. For each player with Fan Favourite on the pitch your team receives an additional +1 FAME modifier for any Kick-Off table results, but not for the Winnings roll.Winning a Blood Bowl 2 official season will be the only way to get this skill.Spoiler : Screenshot of the skill in-game :
- This competitive league will be administrated by a group of trusted players helped by Cyanide and Focus.
