Also known as the chance to get it completely wrong! GVS confounded the pundits last season by avoiding the lowly finish many predicted and only needing a draw in his last game to win it all! *choke* :)

My predictions for Div1:

Pitchblack Stealers - Last seasons nearly rans have some skills on the rookies recruited last season and providing they can avoid the carnage suffered last time out they will prove the team to beat now that Paul is coaching in a different division.

Orc'Estrated Madness - He's already won the title and won his division last season while building a strong team, could well bash his way to the top spot this time round but I predict a few dropped points leaving him in second.

Severance - Crazy Elves, catching squad to die for (well, certainly to kill for!) and blitzers that will be a constant pain. Too many rookies outside of the top half dozen players I think and will come unstuck on the dice too often and drop to third. Contender to be the first elves I've seen take the top spot but with a big team will be giving up lots of inducements.

Black Rock Reapers - Love the Reapers, I'm guessing we'll see another black orc by the start of the season and that will mean it's a big team but with an AG4 Strong Arm black orc and AG boosted gobbo's this is a different beast to the one I saw a few seasons ago. Too many skills for some of the teams ultimately but the love of the crazy game will also see too many goblins flying and cost as many games as they win.

Mega-City Macabre - Tough times ahead for the new kids on the block, the team develops slowly and with only a season under its belt there's precious few skills spread around. The desire to play outside the box will hamper their initial development too (whatever the long term results). They'll cause an upset or two but are also big underdogs and will lose more than they win.

Warpstuff Wodents - The Wodents are back in the top flight! They're going to cause some pain with "Rabid" Ronny until someone puts him down but will struggle to win many games with only a pair of Gutter Runners.

Div 2 Predictions:

Hard to call a division where lots of people are taking on new teams with different styles, but here's my shot.

Khazador Giants - Dwarves, early on, already start with the skills they need, strong coach, wake we up when they've won.

Cajun Caimans - Paul's made every other team work so no reason to expect the powerful combo of skinks and saurus to be any different. Just not out of the blocks fast enough to catch the dwarves I think.

Hazmat City Rangers - Hard to place the Rangers, the teams a balance of slow starters and players that barely need to develop but it will be out bashed initially until it can skill up key players and get rolling, can't see higher than third and if the start is rough it could be a few places lower.

Blight Club - Expensive to start with and playing in a bash happy division the unclean ones will hold their own but I can only see mid-table.

Iron Claw Raiders - The love of the Rat Ogre will be the death of the Raiders, too few Runners to recover when one or more is off the pitch will see them struggle even when the big guy is behaving, when he's not playing ball then the team grinds to a halt. 4-5 games in and the team will change when the light goes on and the other Runners join in but it's too late for this season.

Crazy 88's - Goblins are awesome but in a rubbish way, Matt's a top coach and will win a couple even though they're rubbish but he's also going to get battered. The games will be fun but not enough of them ending in victory.

The Thirteen Sons - Khemri, starting out, limited skills, limited AG, tough division, nuff said.

Short Temper - Slow to start on the mobile players and the skilled players just being slow means that this season should be about building the team. Positional play is going to be key and it's a dramatic change to the carefree Woodies of seasons past, sticking with the team will see a better second season but it's not going to be easy this time out.

Division 1 is Jar Jar's to lose imo, would be a massive shock if he doesn't win it this season.

Same goes for Sparky and his snore-bore Dwarves in Division 2 :wink: .

My predictions stand as in the other thread.

Div 1 - stealers with a dark horse appearance possibly by the elves

Div 2 - giants with a dark horse shot by the rangers

The light will never go on, the rat ogre is king :D :lots of love:

I really wanted to like the Rat Ogre, he's such a great idea, but you'll see :)

Div 1

Buckley 1st place but i think the orc's may give him a tough time.

Div 2

Sparkles takes 1st as he's a good player with a team that starts with everything!

Me absolutely last, give me a couple of seasons build and i'll cause some damage though ;)

1st division - If Buckley doesn't win I hope he has the decency to retire from the game permanently. The other teams aren't bad but comparatively underdeveloped and the coaches are fairly equal in such a way that they're going to take points off each other and stifle an alternative contender. mind you - one of those werewolves goes down and...

2nd division - Sparkles is the obvious choice, but I personally regard chaos dwarves as offering an effective counter in an unskilled environment and I wouldn't put money against PCha rocking the boat. The plague will be nice but in a league of bash look skill-less. Sadly I think lizards might be my kryptonite, I just love the models! Goblins are going to ruin at least one person's season, and who might have an impact on the ultimate winner.

Hmmm, so decision time - Rogre or Runners? Oh, I see we're up against orcs first (again!), guess that pretty much sorts it then. ;P

As for predictions, hmm well, the Wodents will likely be beaten up lots, everyone will soil their shorts about facing the Rabid (or perhaps not now someone's bribed the rules back to Nerfdom) and even thought they loose every match they'll still end up top of the division if not winners of the entire league due to the vagaries of warpstone and manipulation of the winds of fate... ;)
