Dreadball – Dunedin VI Mega Bowl Results!

The Gamma Slammers did well in their first ever league, not quite taking the top spot this time though.

It turned out to be a fairly small event with five teams competing; 2 Marauder teams including the Slammers, 2 Corp teams , a Judwan team with some Teratons to even up the numbers. The Silver Centurions even made an appearance as one of the Corp teams, as a mate needed a lend of a team. Here’s some photos from the day:

It was a great laugh and a fun time was had by all with everyone getting 4 games in over the course of the day and here’s how the slammers results looked:

Game 1: Gamma Slammers Vs Boner Corp

0-7

Game 2: Gamma Slammers Vs Silver Centurions

0-0

Game 3: Gamma Slammers Vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Teratons

7-0

Game 4: Gamma Slammers Vs Judwan

7-0

Overall the Slammers performed well in all their games, with the offensive coach being an outstanding help throughout. Its the first thing I would get for the Marauders (if not most teams) straight off the bat. The ability to get a Goblin moving that fast is incredible, in one game a goblin managed to get from the centre line, to my end of the pitch, then back across to a strike zone and go for the throw! Even though I got off to a very shaky start, the great results in the second half of the day managed to pull me up the leader board and into second place :D, with the boner Corp netting the top prize, after 7 landslides and a 4-0 victory, they deserved it, with the coach receiving Ultimate, a medal, a trophy and the Dino riding kid (forget his name). My second place prizes were pretty spiffing too though….

That’s a Dreadball trophy and James ‘The Vet’ Syler, which I am well chuffed with, especially the MVP who I think is gonna be a Teraton coach for now :). Not only that but I also managed to get a prize for best painted, a season 1 cover print signed by Jake Thornton and Ronnie Renton…

I’ll have to frame that up :D.

Didn’t manage to get any kills at all throughout the day, which is a big surprise considering their bloodstained past, but I put it down to them not wanting to sully their brand new pitch. My pitch arrived just in time on Friday and I’m very happy with the result. A couple of mistakes have been made by me on the design, specifically the overly dark subs and injuries areas, as well as an incorrect line up marker :(. Here’s a closer look:

A big thank you goes out to Pathfinder Neil Collins for arranging and running the whole thing, as well as all the players who helped make it an awesome time 😀

As you may be able to tell I’ve already grabbed my ticket to make sure I could get one, as I don’t think they’ll stick around for very long. The event seems to be much the same as the tournament taking place at the Mantic open day which I’m hopefully going to be going along to, so should be good for getting into the swing of things :D. I’ve already started to prepare the Gamma Slammers to be a bit more presentable, which will include some extra pose players, a brnd spanking new pitch and maybe even a t-shirt for the coach :).
