Dear coaches,

It's been two months since the start of the 2016 Blood Bowl 2 World Cup for PC players!

If you registered for one of the official community league qualifiers, you have 1 months left to qualify for the Play Off.

If you participate in the public qualifier, the second season is now over and the 5 best coaches of the official leaderboard have been qualified for the Play Off.

Congratulations to Psiclops, Mallak, dxj616, Lord Thorlacius and NachoRnR for their qualifications!

You can enter now into the third season of the “Official World Cup Ladder” in-game league. The third season ends on 11th May 2016. Be careful to respect the rules of the competition.

Quick reminder for the Official World Cup Ladder:
1. If your Coach name* isn’t registered at the end of the season, you can’t qualify even if your team is in the top five.
2. Any team with more than 20 games will be disqualified.
3. Any coach with more than 5 concessions in a season (1 month), regardless of the team, will be disqualified from the current season.

Read more information about the rules here.

Good luck and see you on the pitch!

So no TVPlus for the WCQ? That's good. So no norse either? That's a pity.
Any chance of an update on that front?

The new matchmaking system will arrive with the Norse update.

We are still polishing the Norse and the new Starplayers. Nothing more accurate than "in a few weeks" for now but we'll give you more details as soon as possible!

I imagine those Norse have some very shiny knobs from all that polishing. Any chance of a screenshot or two of the new star players, perhaps? The fans are going rather news-hungry, as you might imagine. =)

Hey, thanks for your report. We noted the name and will investigate on our side.

Please send private messages if you have a problem with a Coach in the World Cup.

I think the format has driven off most players at this point. My TV1000 teams regularly get matched against teams of 1350 or 1400 TV, and its only a few days into the season. Yeah, I could stop spinning after a few seconds but that just means no games at all.

@dtbilek:
You are right. I have the feeling, that I should stop playing in the WC ladder. It feels too often like a waste of time. The last new teams i made where only canon fodder for high TV teams. Its just annoying, sitting there for an hour or more and watch the other guy spreading his spp points. Even the one time use of an wizard, cant compensate that;). does anybody know, how this is ruled in private leagues? Do they have a limit for TV difference?
