Title: Blood Bowl 2
Genre: Sports, Strategy
Focus Home Interactive
Release Date: 22 Sep, 2015
Good game, but forcing people to wait 5 min before starting the search for an opponent in league, is a horrible design fix. The person that thought that up shouldnt be in game design. I did brought this at sale. 15\u20ac for legendary edition. So lets take that first off.
I love Warhammer world. I own even figure armies of that world. So this is kind of instant 5\/5.
Like all Warhammer games, this is based on luck and tactic.
It looks good and sounds fun. This would be my main reason to recommendation if it's on sale. Blood bowl is one of those games where winning feels really good. When you have been touch by some kind of luck force. Even if I'm not a good player I know how much it can effect and ruin even best plan there is.
If you haven't played any of Blood Bowl games it's brutal American Football. You can make plans but your real fight is again dice. Whit a lot of races it's extremely hard to master. Every race have they own playing style and when you learn it, game will become much more interesting. You can also mix up team and get the ultimate team. "Note: Even if you think Ogres would be the greatest American football players, they are not.... Maybe even worst because they are bit stupid".
So is there bad?
Yes. A lot.
-RNG based games does not fit for all players.
-Games are long.
-Campaign have only humans
-Normally this game cost fortune whit all expansion packs.
But even after that it's fun game. Just don't take it too seriously. This is what Epic Workshop have been made for decade. I have lost soooo many board game matches because I had bad luck and won too because good luck. Lets just say that you need to know that is in board on your team and enemy at every battle. More you know, more higher chance of winning you have.. Don't play dwarves.. So many great games fail simply because devs cannot handle properly advertising and developing their player base. This is the umpteenth time Cyanide has done it and they are obviously never going to learn. The fact that they are planning a Blood Bowl 3 just baffles me, so we can all buy it again and not find matches after a month...again? How many times can you rerelease the same game and charge full price for it and all it's DLC's? It is based on a 50 year old board game nobody plays anymore. FFS are you people that incompetent and greedy? How about doing it right one time.. nope
I want and try to like this game . To make up for stupid AI play ( i guess?) the RNG system is the worst of any game i have ever played. It is a game of constant save scumming after the AI rolls 10 straight perfect rolls ( again i am guessing to make up for the fact that the AI uses very little logic in its approach it is replaced with perfect dice rolls )
Please let some other developer try to make the next version of this game as it as so much potential.. No, no and no! Don't buy! Don't even think about buying it.
Let me explain why:
I played Blood Bowl 2 about 30 hours and really enjoyed it. Not everything in this game is fine but it's a solid boardgame on PC and it is fun.
But then I had to move into another house. Lot's of things to do... No time to play Blood Bowl... [blah, blah, blah]
And after a while i tried to play again and got an "internal server error". Ok, things can go wrong when games only work with online connection.
So I started to search the internet about an solution and found many. I tired them all and nothing worked for me. I've spend many hours in trying to fix this game, absolutely sure there must be something i could do.
I could not! Every time i start the game and log in (Without log in you can only play as guest. There is no real offline mode!)
So it was time to contact the support...
... First of all there are different ways to do so. If you ever want to contact them don't try the contact form on the website. You have to do some of these "show all signs" or "show all shops" captchas to proofe you are not a robot. (I think not a single robot would contact the support of an software publisher if there is any other way)
Of course you also have to write your problem, but that just takes a few minutes. Trust me the captchas are the problem.
And then ... nobody will ever answer. Why bothering me with a captcha if they knew before they never won't read?
userinput.txt > dev\/null
Ok, but there is also an e-mail you could write. I tried this after a while and voila, i got an answer:
Thank you for contacting the technical support of Focus Home Interactive.
Our Technical Support is closed on weekends and public holidays in France.
We apologize for the inconvenience."
Most people have time to play on weekend and then there is no support? Ooooookaaaay!
At this time I was so ingenuous, i thought they would forward it, so that the support people would read it after the weekend or the holiday in france. (An overhelming amount of people in the world don't know where or what france is and I shoul know when there are puplic holidays!) But instead of reading it after the weekend.
UserEMail > dev\/null
After one week of not hearing anything from this so called support i wrote again. This time not on a weekend and not on public holidays in france. (I googled it ;)) and of course, as it should be, an answer on the next day.
In my mail I explained that i had tried everything you could find on the internet. I tried everything! EVERYTHING! Nothing worked for me. That was the reason I humiliated myself to contact software support.
And their only answer was a copy-paste of the first thing you find here on steam if you search for "internal server error blood bowl 2". WTF!
But this time it was not the time to give up. I tried to explain everything to them again (Neither english nor francetalk is my native language and it is not the easiest thing to talk about an not working game in a foreign language)
Answer the next day...
"reset your winsock, ipv4 and ipv6"
O.o I send my dxdiag.txt and the results of ipconfig to them and they know i just have to reset my TCP\/IP stacks? Great, if this is so easy, why i never read about it, i asked myself, started powershell in admin mode and typed the commands to do what they told me.
After I restarted my PC..., of course didn't work.
And that's my end of bloodbowl 2. Over 7 hours of trying to fix the problem I have with this game, in the last two weeks, I gave up and uninstalled the game. I have more than 1700 Games on PC and it is very anoying that just the one i wanted to play didn't work.
And that the reason I wrote this review. Just to protect as many of you as possible from this feeling. Please don't buy Blood Bowl 2. That is the only thing you could do if you wan't to protect your little heart from breaking apart. And, of course, be very very carefull with any other product published by Focus Home Interactive. Its the same Support!
Seems like support is not a french thing.
Sincerly, S4cg0r. I mean, its the only football I like.. Interesting, I love Tactics games however this requires that one logins in and plays online (for both single and multiplayer). I bought this game because of the fancy characters and graphics as well as the idea of "a different kind of football" .
I expected an alternative to madden. Unfortunately, I totally missed the fact that this is a turn-based videogame.
My recommendation is to read the desciption precisely and watch some gameplays before you decide to buy this game, just to make sure that this is what you have been searching for.
