It's been almost a week since the launch of Blood Bowl 2: Legendary Edition. We just released our first hotfix on PC/Mac, which will come to consoles in a couple of days.
We started a poll last week about the Champion Ladder Season 9 in our last community update. Some of you are still experiencing technical issues and, even though the most urgent ones are fixed in today's hotfix, the majority of you voted to wait for the first big bug fix update before launching a big competition with money on the line.
It means that the next Champion Ladder with actual money on the line will start right after the next big update comes to all platforms. Our current ETA is early October.
That doesn't mean we can't offer a better experience in a moderated environment to the numerous players who joined the community with the release of the Legendary Edition! We know many of you are playing in the Champion Ladder to flee from conceders. That's why we'll open a Champion Ladder Season 9 without any money on the line, to offer a well-administrated ladder to both new and seasoned coaches.
Champion Ladder Season 9 will start as soon as the hotfix is live on console, current ETA is Wednesday, Sept 13th, and will end the day after the next big bug fix update.
It's also an excellent opportunity for our admin team to test the new Champion Cup format:
- 32 teams
- Single Elimination Tournament
- 32 teams qualified from the Champion Ladder:
- Top of each race (24 teams)
- 8 "wild cards" for second best teams of each race (highest ranked race runner-up, until the 8th highest ranked race runner-up)
- 2 teams of each races maximum.
We'll publish the extended rules of Champion Ladder Season 9 at its launch, in a couple of days.
Don't hesitate if you have any feedback in comments.
