Hi there, yes, it is a little frustrating. Unfortunately this is unlikely to be changed anytime soon. I suggest you buy yourself a play & charge set — they only cost about £15 / $20 — it represents a good investment when you think about all the batteries you have to buy!
Hi, thanks for your patience while the relevant people discussed this matter. Please take this as a response to all of your posts.
I’m afraid that I have to take issue with the facts of this case as you present them.
To start with, your statement that ‘you made a new account specifically to play blood bowl’, and, ‘I made this secondary account to avoid my friends from inviting me 24/7 ’, does not make sense, since it is far easier to set yourself to appear offline than it is to create a whole alternate account.
That aside, you imply here and explicitly state in one of your PMs to me that your ‘main’ account is WRECKitROLAND, and your ‘BB account’ is ScantGorgon2375, and that you have never played BB2 on Xbox One under any other accounts. This is not true. I know this because I have voice recordings of you on the ScantGorgon2375 account as well as at least three other accounts used over various seasons since season 11. These are only the accounts we have voice recordings for, I strongly suspect that you had, or were actively coordinating with, many more.
Some of these accounts have been used to attempt to gain an advantage in the competition unfairly, again across multiple seasons, and there are patterns of account activity we have noticed which defy any realistic probability of innocence on your part.
In addition, we have no reason to think that you are approaching this conversation in good faith since you have consistently lied about your identity in the several interactions we have had over the last few months.
Finally, since this ban was issued you sent further abusive voice messages to at least one innocent player in our league. Thus you, the individual, are now permanently banned from playing in CCL, and we will instantly ban any account we suspect to be associated with you.
You are welcome to continue playing Blood Bowl 2 in the campaign, eternal leagues, in private multiplayer leagues, or in the official Cabalvision Open Ladder.
In regard to refunding the game, you would need to approach the retailer from which you originally purchased the game.

I think it would be great to have more stuff to buy! I’d buy it for sure!
Skins for existing teams
Team insignia packs
More player customisation options (aesthetic)
... maybe something I never even thought of before.
... teams of course...
As for a ‘BB3’ i’d like to see:
A better in-game way of communicating with players (for league managers)
Better league management tools in general
More options and choices over the rule-sets
Better animations / graphics
Special animations between specific player types (Trolls eating goblins etc.)
Probably loads of other stuff too.. that’s just off the top of my head.
Oh hello m8, yes, I Xbox messaged you probably shortly after you posted the original question. I think usually people just Xbox message each other to arrange the games. We do have an active Facebook group though which probably 70% of the players are on — if you search Blood Bowl 2 CCL (if you use Facebook) then you can join us there too.
Starting with the Champions Cup season 14 the Xbox will adopt the Financial Fair Play Rules originally implemented on the PC.
Currently, the inducement rules mean that the Underdog receives cash from the TV difference as normal, plus any additional cash spent by the Overdog (up to 150k) in inducements. The Underdog can then spend up to 150k of their own cash on top of that. However, in some specific circumstances, this may cause the on-pitch TVs to be unbalanced.
For example, where the difference in Team Value between the two teams is very small or equal, the ‘Underdog’ may be able to take what is in effect an unanswerable wizard even though their status as ‘Underdog’ may have been (in the case of equal TV) decided by luck of the draw.
To promote Financial Fair Play in the Champions Cup (deemed necessary after the scandal surrounding the 2517 purchase of Kill-ian Mbappe by Parravon St Guillaume) the organizers of the Champions Cup are limiting the ability of the Underdog to "top up" the extra inducement money to 40k (not including any cash-over-bank which counts towards TV they have) instead of 150k. This means that, at most, the on-pitch TVs will differ by 40k.
Calculation (Google sheet)
Definition of terms in the Google sheet:
TV difference is the difference between the Overdog and the Underdog's TV
Underdog Petty Cash is the amount the Underdog gets on top of his own cash due to spending by the Overdog.
Round Up is the amount Underdog Petty Cash is increased by to make on-pitch TV more equal. That equates to any cash over 150k the Underdog has, plus up to 40k if the Underdog has that much cash.
To that end, the Underdog will receive, in total:
· Cash equating to the TV difference between the teams, plus
· Cash to account for spending by the Overdog, plus
· Any cash which is already accounted for in their TV, plus
· Up to 40k to spend, taken from their own cash.
This puts the teams within 40k of each other.
In-game, that means the Underdog should always follow these simple rules:
- If your treasury starts at 150k or more then it can get no lower than 110k.
- Otherwise it can get no lower than 40k below what you have.
It is the responsibility of each player to be aware of and adhere to the Financial Fair Play Rules.
If you notice that your opponent has broken the Financial Fair Play Rules, you should concede the game before the main sequence of play begins and ask for an admin adjudication. Do not validate the match though (this is very important). At that time a member of the admin team will reset the game and advise the players as to the appropriate spending levels.
It is very important that the main sequence of play has not started when the FFP rules are reported. Any game partially or fully completed will be judged as fair and confirmed by the admin team.
TVDifference = OverdogTV - UnderdogTV
UnderdogPettyCash = max(0, OverdogSpend - max(0, OverdogCash - 150))
RoundUp = min(UnderdogCash, 40) + max(0, UnderdogCash - 150)
1500TV (140k cash) spends 50k vs 1410TV (100k cash)
TVDifference = 1500 - 1410 = 90
UnderdogPettyCash = max(0, 50 - max(0, 140 - 150)) = max(0, 50-0) = 50
Roundup = min(100, 40) + max(0, 100 - 150) = 40 + 0 = 40
FreeCash = 90 + 50 = 140
TotalSpendable = 140 + 40 = 180
1610TV (180k cash) spends 100k vs 1300TV (20k cash)
TVDifference = 1610 - 1300 = 310
UnderdogPettyCash = max(0, 100 - max(0, 180 - 150)) = max(0, 100 - 30) = 70
Roundup = min(20, 40) + max(0, 20 - 150) = 20 + 0 = 20
FreeCash = 310 + 70 = 380
TotalSpendable = 380 + 20 = 400
Yes, the calculation is a little complex, however, the principle is simple and in most cases, it should be simple enough to work out in your head. To make things even easier, and to help you to experiment with some different examples there is a Google sheet available. If you intend to use it lots we recommend making your own version to play with.
