The first half started quite usually. Prehysteria was receiving and was able to delay scoring long enough for the dwarves to have to try to score a 2 turns touchdown to hope to even the score. Alas, Ga went to pick up the ball too quickly, before the forwards had a chance to move deep field, and he dropped it, squashing the hopes of his team. Not content with the perspective of a draw, the dwarves tried to score quickly in the second half. But with no maiming, an isolated ball carrier in the deep field was an easy pray for a swarm of skinks, and Prehysteria managed to score a second time. Only a few rounds were left, and the Yog-Sothoth Beardies persevered in their folly, trying to score quickly again, only to be deprived of the ball, once again, leading to a third lizard touchdown. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Thu, 10 May 2018 10:25:35 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525940735 Match: Dirty Bandages (2) vs. Cosa Nosferatu (0) In the undead crunch, the Vampires got stabbed in the heart by the skeletons. After a very classic slow touchdown in the first half, the vampires, not wanting to settle for a draw, tried to score quickly in the second half. Alas for them, an isolated vampire was an easy prey under the scorching sun. Failing to retrieve the ball from an isolated skeleton, the vampires could only look as spectators as the Dirty bandages scored a second touch down. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Wed, 09 May 2018 11:30:23 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525858223 Match: The Avengers (0) vs. NuOrc Greenskinz (2) Black Orcs Str 4 easily bested mass standfirm. Orcs took advantage of an early turnover by The Hulk (death roller) to steal the ball and score in turn 8 and didn't give up the ball before scoring in turn 16. Pretty easy game for the Orcs and allows the Greenskinz to overtake the Avengers for first place http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 07 May 2018 11:58:56 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525687136 Match: Redcap Runners (2) vs. Scrats (1) Pitch clear! The gobbos only managed 2 CASs, but they managed to foul the rest of the rats off the pitch without the blind/bent ref noticing... http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sat, 05 May 2018 22:32:51 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525552371 Match: Morgul Maniacs (1) vs. Nubones (0) Nubones never showed on the pitch. Rumors says that the where scared by the bare sight of the undead players http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Wed, 02 May 2018 13:00:29 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525258829 Match: Force Majeure (4) vs. Khornes Flakes (0) Ridiculous game. Khorne team rolled quad skulls on turn 2, lost the ball and never recovered. Whenever they briefly held the ball a turnover woulkd occur. Brets for their part succeeded in everything they did. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 01 May 2018 14:17:52 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525177072 Match: Soft and Cuddly (2) vs. Stockholm Bombers (1) Soft and Cuddly destroyed the LOS on the opening drive, and then almost threw it away with a big turnover on offense. However, they managed to recover the ball and surf 3 gutter runners, scoring on turn 8. However, all skaven were ready for 2nd half, but after a turn 4 score, Soft and Cuddly had just enough time to get into the EZ on turn 16. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 01 May 2018 14:16:54 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525177014 Match: Brutal Deluxe (0) vs. Great Danes (2) Lots of fun, and the ogres actually behaved very sensibly. However, even the help of a blitz couldn't deliver a score and the Norse romped home to a well deserved win! The Ogres would like to apologise for getting this in so horrendously late. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 30 Apr 2018 23:35:45 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1525124145 Match: Sizzling Bacon (0) vs. Cosa Nosferatu (1) A very slow game at first. The Vampires were wary of the Slanns capacity to jump over their lines and spent most of the first half successfully trying to slow them down and lower their numbers, keeping the score at the end of the half at 0-0, thanks to many failed leaps and dodges. Second half started more eventfully, Sizzling Bacon managing to deprive the Vampires of the ball. Nevertheless, with a little violence, a little dodging and a lot of luck, Cosa Nosferatu managed to score. And then back to the slow game of attrition. A victory without glory for the Vampires, an honourable loss for the Slanns. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Wed, 25 Apr 2018 19:15:38 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1524676538 Match: Temple of Doom (0) vs. Tree Huggers (3) Everybody is wondering what happened to the Tree Huggers, not least themselves. After being the worst team on the pitch with two wooden spoons in two seasons, it is their second victory in as many games, and, once again, with a crushing 3-0 score. At first, Nuffle seemed to favour the Temple of Doom, awarding them a blitz and then control of the ball within a hair of the touchdown line and already one elf squished and another, Lorcaelyn Lichenlake, the catcher, no less, KO'd by the end of turn 1. Yet, thanks to a series of daring dodges, the elves managed to retain control of the ball, though deep behind their lines, and at the end of turn 2, they had lost it again, and their forwards were having difficulties entering the skeletons' territory. Turn 3 so one of the Wardancers, who had tried to go forward with the ball, KO'd. All seemed lost. But the elves didn't despair, and managed to get the ball deep, although dangerously near to the crowd. Some more dodges to escape the pursuing skeletons and by turn 5, the Tree Huggers had scored their first touchdown, feeling it would be their last. This is when Nuffle started smiling on them. A pitch invasion at kick-off left the Temple of Doom very diminished for a while, and a strong defensive pressure from the woodies forced the skellies ball carrier back. Despite a second maimed elf, Lorcaelyn, who had recovered, found his way behind the touch down line, and in the last minutes of the half, the skellies' ball carrier was deprived of the ball and a daring pass landed in the catcher's hands. 2-0 at half time. Thinking that they had the game won, the elves started the second half by trying to stay out of harm's way whilst still slowing the Temple of Doom's progress. That is, until Belloq, the Thro-Ra, strayed dangerously close to the side line. A very daring leap by Enggoth Sagerock, the Tree Huggers' star wardancer, and he was crowd-surfing. Once again, Nuffle smiled on the elves with a very favourable touchback, and before the skellies could even react, a third touchdown was scored. The elves then continued their stalling tactics until the last round, when, for some reason, Bregalad, the tree man, got angry and killed a skeleton (although he then got better). TD 3-0, CAS 1-2, a very blood bowly match. Postscript: In a short press conference after the game, the Temple of Doom confirmed that all the above happened, then refused to speak to the media, thoroughly bested by those nasty woodelves :) http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Wed, 25 Apr 2018 09:45:56 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1524642356 Match: Old World Kings (2) vs. Testery (1) The Norse went into the game with a shallow bench and promptly beat up a lot of thralls. Unfortunately the vampires beat up a lot of Norse men and the numbers advantage was too overwhelming in the 2nd half allowing the vampires to steal a defensive TD http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 24 Apr 2018 19:46:40 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1524592000 Match: The Mighty Blow's (2) vs. Yog-Sothoth Beardies (1) A truly crushing victory for the aptly named Mighty Blows. The first half was a classic slow grind, with the defending Yog-Sothoth Beardies quickly getting two players crowd surfing, and failing to do any significant damage, even less to weaken the Eric family (apart from Eric, son of Erik, who suffered a minor injury). In the second half, though, the blows started to land. The Chaos Dwarves managed to score, with great difficulty, thanks to an audaciously dodging Bull Centaur, but at a great cost, and far too quickly. And the last drive just confirmed that the Norse were out for blood. With 4 players KO'd or hurt and two dead, the Yog-Sothoth Beardies just didn't stand a chance, and, despite a desperate last minute effort, had to concede a touch down in the last seconds of the game. A very well deserved 2-1 victory for the Mighty Blows. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 24 Apr 2018 09:46:29 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1524555989 Match: The Turkeys of Doom (2) vs. The Iron Ladies (2) The elves received against the dreaded hypno-zons who were also joined for the first drive by Bertha Big Fist. Turn 2 saw Bertha try to sack the ball carrier by attempting to dodge through a screen resulting in a KO to herself. In turn 3 Hypno gaze allowed a second sack attempt, this time the successful blitz was thwarted by a successful dump off for the turn 4 TD. The Elves pressed hard on defense and swarmed the ball after the kick off and for a moment the game looked to be in the balance but the elves also failed to keep anyone back in case something went wrong. The Amazons escaped the trap and set up a screen to avoid a blitz. The St5 elven catcher tried anyway, dodging through five tackle zones only to snake eyes the gfi to blitz KO'ing himself. The half ended 1-1. Following a Riot the Amazons received with an 11-9 advantage, but before the ball could be collected Bertha threw a 3D block on the LOS and stunned herself and her opponent taking advantage of the turnover the Elves were able to swarm the backfield and steal the ball. They were not able to keep it though and soon the Amazons were stalling in the end zone (as the elves didn't keep anyone significant back to thwart the breakaway). The elves made a sensational defensive stop which only had a 1in20 chance of working, but after the Amazon coach pointed out to the referees that the Elves had used an illegal double blitz technique the Amazon ball carrier was allowed to stand up and retrieve the ball and promptly scored. With 4 turns left the elves hoped to quick score, but burning the last reroll getting the ball and being down meant the Amazons were able to totally shut down the available scorers. The elves resorted to a desperation play which saw a couple of elves go on a solo run to the end zone unsupported. The Amazon took away that option as well and though an elf did an incredibly difficult manoeuvre (escaping tackle/diving tackle/shadowing and tentacles to get to the ball) the Amazons were still able to get the ball and run it down field only to fail a GFI. The Elf QB swooped in and quick passed it to make it 2-2 as the final whistle blew. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 17 Apr 2018 08:27:57 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523946477 Match: Short Stuff Stealers (0) vs. Thighhigh Thunder (2) The halflings struggled all game with the dice and the elves did just enough to take the win. The game was violent for 2 "soft" teams with half of both teams not making it to the end of the drives. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Fri, 13 Apr 2018 00:24:27 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523571867 Match: Blockers by choice (0) vs. Yog-Sothoth Beardies (1) This was the crunch, the second time the teams met after last season's spike. The final score is the same, 1-0, but this time it's a win for the Yog-Sothoth Beardies. The tone of the game was given by the very first action, which sent one of the Troll Slayers to the infirmary. The first half, indeed, saw the dwarves bravely try to reach the touchdown line, only to be mauled by the Chaos Dwarves. One of the bull centaurs managed to steal the ball but tripped while trying to run for the Touch Down line. The Blockers by Choice got the ball back and tried the passing game, at which they alas failed miserably. The second half was played in a swirling blizzard. Although weakened, the Blockers managed to force the Beardies into scoring relatively early and managed to bring their last surviving runner in view of the Touch Down line. Alas, he was stop in his effort by a dodging Bull Centaur, and that was it. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 10 Apr 2018 22:09:35 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523390975 Match: Khornes Flakes (2) vs. Testery (1) This game was played last season, I have not updated spp since its an issue, another game was updated insteed of this, so some back tracking is needed http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 09 Apr 2018 15:40:14 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523281214 Match: Temple of Doom (0) vs. Stockholm Bombers (2) Convincing win for the Rats, as the skellis shambled about and couldn't contain gutter runner breaks! http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sat, 07 Apr 2018 21:27:47 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523129267 Match: Morgul Maniacs (2) vs. Orcdorp Posse (0) The game started up equally until turn 5 of the first half, then Morgul Maniacs went better in on the blocks and tackles, and suddenly the orcs went down here and there,on the pitch. this ended up with a leading goal for the undead. With only 11 players in the squad, the very hot weather in the second half exhausted Orcdrop Posse players. By that they were only able to enter the field with 8 players. This concluded the game, with the undead dominating, and scoring to 2-0. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sat, 07 Apr 2018 07:45:33 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523079933 Match: Snottown Crushers (2) vs. Sizzling Bacon (1) The Snots get their first win at the hands of a rookie Slann team. The frogs were having trouble dodging and staying on the field. The Snots had a numbers advantage through most of the game. It was 1-1 at half time and the Ogres scored early in the second half to go up 2-1. The Frogs made a push and got within striking distance with only 3 players left on the field...but double skulls ended their hopes early... http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Fri, 06 Apr 2018 23:50:17 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1523051417 Match: Old World Kings (0) vs. Itza Dino-Might (0) Old game.
