The 2016 Blood Bowl 2 World Cup Grand Final is here!

Blood Bowl 2 coaches from around the world competed against each other for glory, honor, a share of the $35,000 prize pool, and the coveted title of Blood Bowl 2 World Champion. Over 3,000 coaches have been duking it out over the last 5 months and now two coaches have emerged from the top!

Mallak

Mallak qualified for the World Cup through the official ladder. Not a small feat given that it was by far the largest qualifier with several thousands of teams competing for placement. He finished second in Season 2 with a Dark Elf team while sporting a perfect 19-0-0 record.

In the World Cup, he has been playing with the Eshin Red Raiders. Using a Skaven team guaranteed many injuries and deaths, considering their frail nature. He will be competing in the Grand Finals with 3 injured players: one of which is his key player, a gutter runner, who suffers from a smashed hip and a movement penalty. Mallak has already defeated a Lizardman team on the way up the ladder, but can his team last long against Guinness’ scaly heavy-hitters?

Guinness

Guinness is a newcomer to the Blood Bowl scene and somehow he smashed his way through to the Grand Final! He qualified through one of the 27 community leagues, the North American TTS League.

Guinness coaches a Lizardmen team called Razzle Dazzle Rootbeer, which is currently undermanned at only 10 players instead of the usual 11. The free team member he will receive will not only be inexperienced, but will also be reluctant to follow orders. He will need to rely on his massive saurus and his veteran skink players to out-value his Skaven opponent.

Either way, an incredibly mobile Skaven team versus the hard-hitting Lizardmen is guaranteed to be an action-packed match!

The match will be streamed LIVE this coming Wednesday, the 29th of June, 2016 at 5pm GMT. Matches will be casted and narrated by Crendor, cKnoor, The Sage, Lewpac, and VG Purist!

See you there!

Thank you all very kindly for this honour! It was one hell of a thing. Naysayers and people blaming it on luck aside (you know who you scoundrels are), I had a lot of friends and opponents with amazing sportsmanship to meet and play against during this tournament, and it makes me really excited about the idea of meeting and playing more of you in the future!!
