Waterbowl League 2019

IT’S DRAW DAY!

This season’s Waterbowl began with a pre-season twist…certain teams would gain skills for FREE.

The lower tier teams began with 2 skills, with Stunty teams having the option of trading the 2 for a Double skill.

With these skills being dispensed like confetti at a wedding, it was not surprising to then see 6 Nurgle teams lining up this season!

 

The Draw Rules

The draw had 3 well deserved top seeds:

  • Kåre Foged, last years Champ
  • Geoff Porritt
  • Alex Barbanneau

With the other teams limited to a maximum of two of the same race per division.

The racial line up is as follows:

Amazon: Ringbeard (1)
Chaos: Deeferdan, Vagabond, Chebby (3)
Chaos Dwarf: Maxik, Volkmair, Brionnebiletappers (3)
Dark Elf: Chilli, Elperas (2)
Dwarf: Gniuz (1)
Elven Union: Moysie, Tintenfisch (2)
Goblin: Dafo (1)
Halfling: Beanbag, Campmark (2)
Human: Leipziger, Caeser, Ben Shaw, Fireolli, Kanter, (5)
Khemri: Podfrey (1)
Khorne: Cunning, Istvan (2)
Lizardmen: The Martian (1)
Nurgle: Heatoncoach, RickWreckless, Kfoged, Douglowe, Blessedknight, Davelklatzen (6)
Ogre: TheGngrNoob
Orc: KillerB, CarolusMagnus, Bigbenbear
Slann: Barney the Lurker, Spoboyle
Undead: JimBob, DrewCleary
Underworld: CJBlackburn

No place for Necromantic or Wood Elf teams makes this season seem rather skewed.

Draw Structure:

1) Draw seeded teams

2) Draw the Nurgle teams, 2 per division

3) Draw the Human team

4) Draw the rest of the teams (keeping a Max of two per race per division)

 

Pre-Draw Thoughts

My pre-draw favourite is CJ. Great player and if anyone can make Underworld work then it is him!
