[Legendary Edition] Overview Thread

@Sephiroth said in [Legendary Edition] Overview Thread:

I don't know if it's a known bug, but there is a trophy in the game that says "arrive in a competition final", this trophy doesn't unlock for me, despite having finished the single player campaign and having created a competition and played until the finals.

Thanks. I'll poke the team about it, even though they're very busy with Legendary right now.

Hi, first of all I want to say THE HYPE IS REAL!!! 🙂
Ahem... Now, after watching cknoor and sages gameplay 3 questions arise in my mind.

  1. I see that all champions have been implemented, but all of the chainsaw ones are goblins no matter the race. Will that change in the final release? Just a regular orc with a chainsaw would be nice for nobla etc...

  2. Kislev are the new Slann but they have regular Slann heroes. It just doesn't look good visually to have a Croksigor in the Kislev team. Will that change in or post release?

  3. Chaos Pact won't be in as a team but I saw that we can mcombine teams and make them which is way cool. Just wanna ask will those players have Animosity in addition to other perks?

The Official Expansion features all the Star Players listed in the official LRB6 (p.82-84). Only a fraction of them have a dedicated "skin" but they follow the LRB6 rules, including the teams they can play with.

  1. Kislev are the new Slann but they have regular Slann heroes. It just doesn't look good visually to have a Croksigor in the Kislev team. Will that change in or post release?

Not likely because 2 skins of the same Star Players can't co-exist. If they look like Kislev players, it will be weird for the Lizardmen team to hire them.

Mixed team features players exactly like they are in their own teams. Meaning no animosity in the "Chaos Pact" mixed team. that's why Chaos Pact isn't officially featured in the official expansion. It's not an actual Chaos Pact team.

I kind of like the idea of having a giant bear and a giant lizard on the field at the same time. Might have to make a very low Griff-style build with 10 linemen and a bear so I can induce Slibli and have a King Kong v. Godzilla theme going... but with a bear.

You know, I wanted to complain about Lizard Star Players for Kislev at first (and suggest they'd get access to Human Stars instead), but it actually fits with the "circus" theme.

@SirIronclad Humans get kind of screwed as Star Players go. W/O Puggy or Helmut Wulf their cheapest one is Zug at 160k, and Zug isn't going to really help against a team with 13 skills.

EDIT: NVM... I'm an idiot... changed Zug from 260 to 160 as it should be. And this prompted me to do serious research on Star Players, and the team that gets screwed the most is Dark Elves with their cheapest star being 200 with Eldril Sidewinder.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but personally, if all the chainsaw Star Players are just gonna be a goblin regardless of what race they are supposed to be then better not put them in.
We don't have to have all of them at any cost and not at the cost of it just looking lazy and sloppy.

@Memlok

I'm fairly certain most players would disagree with you.

I'm guessing they are the fantastic Gobbo chainsaw model with the appropriate stats and name change?

It's a placeholder, Cyanide have done it before and then patched the game at a later date to update the model.

We're pleased to announce the first Beta for Blood Bowl 2 - Legendary Edition!

This first test session will be a stress test for our game servers. We want as many simultaneous players as possible, to make sure our servers hold! That's why the beta will last a long weekend.

Date: 2PM (CEST) Friday August 4th to 11AM (CEST) Monday August 7th.

Access: All Blood Bowl 2 owners (BB2 base game owners + Legendary edition preorders).

Content:

  • 12 races (4 Legendary teams)

    • Halflings
    • Amazons
    • Kislev Circus
    • Underworld Denizens
    • the 8 races from the base game (Dwarf, Dark Elves, High Elves, Chaos, Skaven, Human, Orc, Bretonnian).
  • Multiplayer only

  • Team Editor

  • No Mixed Team

If you own Blood Bowl 2 on Steam, you'll automatically get a new entry called "Blood Bowl 2 Legendary Beta" in your Steam library.

We'd like to have a peak of players Friday 4th at 5PM (CEST). Please log on for a quick game at this hour to help us get the best possible results for this beta.

Besides the technical aspects, any feedback about the Legendary Edition is of course welcome!

Thanks for helping us develop the best possible Blood Bowl video game!

See you on the pitch!

If your goal is to have as many people playing as possible, why not to make it a free open beta for the weekend instead?

Will console players get a beta test??

Beta tests are for working out the bugs and problems... Free weekends are to showcase your finished product to people who are on the fence about buying. Free Beta Weekends would be showcasing bugs and problems to prospective buyers. I'm not sure you want to mix the two.

@Kejiruze But my firs question was will they be goblins or will they be the apropriate race. And the answer was gobbo.

Answer is simple... everyone that will ever buy BB2 and would be able to make an informed decision about what's a bug and how it's supposed to be already owns it. Adding 2,000 chuckleheads that don't know how to make a 2db would just confuse the situation and put undo stress on Netheos who would have to delete all the stupid feedback before forwarding on the actual feedback.

@Netheos and what about ps4?

Consoles preorders aren't open yet. No beta planned for now.

Thank you Netheos and the devs for opening the BETA early !!!
