Ja fiz o download,e a primeira vista...grande merda que aqui temos,mas façam o download e julgem por voçes.
A unica coisa que aqui poderia ser boa,era o facto de a GW nos estar a dar esta versao so para "tapar o buraco",sendo que depois iria lançar uma versao oficial "toda bonitinha"...quem sabe com uma reedicao do jogo.

"Tom Anders aka Galak Starscraper has been forced to step down from the BBRC (Blood Bowl Rules Council) officially effective immediately.
Here is his response:
Thanks Ian and everyone.
Best guess is that I've contributed around 3000 volunteered hours to creating the LRB 5.0 and 6.0 over the last 5 years. (2000 of those were for the LRB 5.0 over 2 years and 1000 for LRB 6.0 over the last 3).
I personally typed up around 90% of the Rule part of the LRB 6.0 based on a starter document provided to me based on his re-creation of LRB 3.0 by Josh Blanchette (thanks Josh!). The entire Background I typed up. (I created around 50% of the new background ... Stephen Hutton the other half). For those that don't know why this is true ... GW lost the source documents for the Blood Bowl rulebook after LRB 2.0. That's why I've created the LRB for them since LRB 3.0 (I had the software and knowledge how to do it).
I'm disappointed to be forcibly removed from the BBRC ... but to be honest ... I'm not angry.
GW is on a legal rampage as of late ... I'm not sure what they think will be the end benefit from it but I personally feel that Blood Bowl just isn't important enough for them to worry about its fan base. Its just the bitter truth of GW's business model. What would be an flagship product for another company doesn't register for them on the importance scale. Jervis discussed this at GenCon in 2005. If you've never heard that speech ... take the time out to listen to it and you'll understand a lot more of where Blood Bowl falls on GW's business model www.midgardbb.com/Jerv...172005.mp3
Anyway ... I'll go back to topic of I'm not angry. GW has a new head of legal and she is cracking down. Part of that crackdown was directed at me and they felt I should be removed from the BBRC.
The bottom line all of you should take away is this and its very important to me that this is the take away:
LRB 6.0 is finished. My opinion is that what GW just did to me will not effect LRB 6.0 going live. Everything should still be in the works ... its just moving at huge corporation speed. So patience. Does it suck that after everything I've done that this is the parting gift from GW ... yeah ... but I didn't do this work to be appreciated by Jervis or GW ... I did this work because I felt Blood Bowl was going to be destroyed as a fun game based on the original plans for LRB 5.0 that were presented to me. I did this work for the game and the community ... and LRB 6.0 is the best damn set of rules Blood Bowl have ever had ... so my personal mission was a success as soon as LRB 6.0 is officially posted. Despite what folks have accussed me of over the years ... I didn't do this because I got some high working for GW or wanting the glory of the role ... I did it to make sure my favourite board game stayed my favourite board game. I'm excited to play in my next LRB 6.0 tournament ... I've played Slann at some events but haven't played 'Flings since LRB 4.0 (3 1/2 years) ... I'm looking forward to doing that again.
Also ... the role of the BBRC is done. As has been indicated by my signature for a year ... LRB 6.0 is it. So if there is not a planned date at all for a future LRB ... the need for a BBRC is just not there. So being officially removed from a group that was done away isn't the worst thing that could happen if it was a needed thing for LRB 6.0 to become official.
At the end of the day ... I did all this work for the game and the incredible community behind the game. Those elements are not done with me. So yesterday was a sad day for me in many ways ... but I still look forward to LRB 6.0 becoming official and that is much more important than something happening to a fan of the game over in Indiana, USA.
Thanks for the kind words guys ... since I'm typing this anyway ... I'm going to encourage everyone to NOT (I repeat NOT) start making fake LRB 6.0s. I have faith that the right thing is going to happen and if me not being part of the BBRC is what it takes for LRB 6.0 to become official ... its a small small insignificant price to pay.

Pensei que ia ser despedaçado pela minha oponente de 11 anos,mas nao...pelo contrario...so jogamos meia parte para evitar embaraços (ainda) maiores...e ficou pelos 3-0...
Epá,simplesmente os anoes com a sua baixa agilidade nao conseguiram fazer Dodge aos meus ratos...
Eu tentei manter a distancia possivel,fazendo com que so me pudessem atingir com o blitz...a primeira oportunidade,atacava como um bando de ratazanas...todas ao molho para ganhar a vantagem dos dados,e depois de soltar a bola,o meu GutterRunner apanhava a bola e marcava no mesmo turno...ia ser um massacre.
Vou ver se daqui a bocado (la pras 5 da tarde...quando acordar...sim porque eu trabalho a noite) faço um rematch do jogo,mas desta vez vou experimentar jogar com os nanicos.
Ficam algumas fotos...
Ps-Espero que tenham reparado no espectador especial que aparece sempre nestes jogos...o MM andava la a ver o espectaculo ;)

"Below is a list of the 12 items that are CHANGING from LRB 5.0+ Jervis has approved the LRB 6.0 with a caveat (explained below).
While I am not allowed to post the LRB 6.0 as GW wants sole hosting on it. I am allowed to post the changes to LRB 5.0+ so you know exactly what is in LRB 6.0.
LRB 5.0+ was LRB 5.0 with the 2008 Rules Review material added in. The changes you need to make to get LRB 5.0+ to LRB 6.0 is:
1) Flesh Golems on Necro back to LRB 5.0 110k
2) Master Chef for Flings back to LRB 5.0 100k
3) Deeproot to 300k
4) Morg to return to LRB 5.0 430k
5) Glart to 210k
6) Fezglitch to 100k
7) Eldril to 200k
8) Zzharg to 90k
9) Dolfar to 150k
10) Crazy Igor to 120k
11) Bertha Bigfist to 290k
12) Pass Block: A player with this skill is allowed to move up to three squares when the opposing coach announces that one of his players is going to pass the ball (but not a bomb). The opposing coach may not change his mind about passing once Pass Block's use is declared. The move is made out of sequence, after the range has been measured, but before any interception attempts have been made. A player may not make the move unless able to reach a legal destination and may not follow a route that would not allow them to reach a legal destination. A legal destination puts the player in a position to attempt an interception, an empty square that is the target of the pass, or with his tackle zone on the thrower or catcher. The player may not stop moving until he has reached a legal destination, has been held fast by Tentacles or has been Knocked Down. The special move is free, and in no way affects the player’s ability to move in a subsequent action. The move is made using all of the normal rules and skills and the player does have to dodge in order to leave opposing players’ tackle zones. Players with Pass Block may use this skill against a Dump Off pass. If a player performing a Pass Block in their own turn is Knocked Down then this is a turnover, no other players may perform Pass Block moves, and your turn ends as soon as the results of the pass and the block are resolved.
13)Special Play Card clarification: Once you have randomly drawn a card you may conceal the result until played but you may not exchange or trade it in for another card.
14)Revised Riot wording: Riot: The trash talk between two opposing players explodes and rapidly degenerates, involving the rest of the players. If the receiving team’s turn marker is on turn 7 for the half, both teams move their turn marker back one space as the referee resets the clock back to before the fight started. If the receiving team has not yet taken a turn this half the referee lets the clock run on during the fight and both teams’ turn markers are moved forward one space. Otherwise roll a D6. On a 1-3, both teams’ turn markers are moved forward one space. On a 4-6, both team’s turn markers are moved back one space.
That's it .. the rest of LRB 5.0+ stays as is.
And now the caveat: Games Workshop is concerned about the number of fantasy football miniature companies now showing up in the world. GW has also noted that several of the Star Players do not have official figures. They have agreed to allow them in at this time ... however over the coming weeks (perhaps months) they do NOT want to see discussions (or worse released figures) from other miniatures companies about creating figures to fill in for missing star players. Miniatures released by any company should not be marketed online as being a great figure for such and such BB Star Players. It was made VERY clear today that if GW sees such marketing happening ... they will pull the LRB 6.0 (or modify it before it is officially posted) and remove all star players from the document that do not have an official BB figure effectively deleting the rules for that player from the game (and since LRB 6.0 will be the offical rules for many years to come ... this will be a serious deletion). So not only would this erase all the LRB 6.0 stars added to balance out the game and team's inducements. But many LRB 5.0 stars (Ramtut, Zara, Hemlock, Helmet, Ugroth, Spleenripper, etc. etc) would be deleted from the rulebook as well. I've already written every head of every miniature company I know of and requested that they stay away from anything related to targetting the BB Star Player market. At this point ... I just want to get the LRB 6.0 hosted by GW so we can call this project finished for the good of everyone.
Adoro as ameaças...."ah e tal,eu sei que nos fizemos um jogo muito bom para o qual nem nos preocupamos em fazer as miniaturas que estao em falta,mas se alguem quiser tornar o jogo ainda melhor com miniaturas proprias que possam ser usadas no jogo,nos(literalmente),estragamos o jogo todo de proposito so para verem quem manda...."
Ps-Slann,Underworld e Pact,nao sao oficiais e nao podem ser usadas em torneios GW...ainda bem que se podem utilizar em todos os outros torneios ja que tiveram 100% dos votos por parte do BBRC e da NAF
AHHHHHH....e pra acabar,porque caral*o anda a GW a fazer remakes do Varag,do Griff e do Zug quando 2 dos Star players mais famosos,aparecem no catalogo a mais de um ano,tem os moldes prontos e nunca mais estao a venda?Falo da Zara e do Ramtut.A serio a GW pode vir com cartas muito bonitas,mas sao merdas destas que simplesmente nao tem explicaçao.

"Folks just so you all know, and in case you miss the other posts we will be migrating the transfer from TBB to http://www.talkfantasyfootball.org/
That site is up and showing the hosting company's default page.
Johnny is sending me a copy of all the data and content (so all user details including post counts) on Sunday night (UK time). I expect it will take a few days to get working so please be patient, but it should all be done by 13th Nov.
Ian 'Double Skulls' Williams "
Assim sendo,vamos esperar que as outras perolas do BB nao acabem e que mudem simplesmente de nome...
Eu vou "postando" aqui as mudanças.

Fica o post original:
"Got my letter from GW today.
I have to pretty much take down blood-bowl.net. They objected to the domain name and the library of all the old articles that I had on the site for folks to reference.
My bigger issue is that I don't want to take down the MBBL and MBBL2 and I was not asked to do so ... so I need to figure out how to create a new domain and still have those leagues work. My biggest problem is that the PHP running the league has a lot of links to the website itself ... I just hope I can catch them all the changes I need to make.
Unfortantely b-b.net isn't that great a name and to be honest the whole reason I started blood-bowl.net was for it to be a library resource and GW now says that is a no go so the whole point of the site is really dead ... really too bad as we just had our 500,000 hit to the site.
The other C&D items I received I can deal with. Some wording changes required on the www.thechaoscup.com I can handle.
I need to cancel the link for bloodbowlfigs.com ... but I expected that one was coming.
I've also been told to not sell engage in commercial Impact! activities at a Blood Bowl tournament. This one I will admit caught me off guard as in 4 1/2 years an owner of Impact! has only ever done this one time and it was at the express invitation of the organizer. So that one is pretty easy to agree with as we didn't do it anyway as part of our business.
So that covers the legal stuff aimed at me.
Anyone who is better at websites than me and has a good idea how to port over the MBBL and MBBL2 to a new home that would be great. I'm going to talk to my webhost and see if they have a way to just move it all to a new domain if I get one.
Se eles em vez de andarem a foder o pessoal que lhes deu dinheiro se preocupassem mais em fazer jogos decentes....de certeza que estavam muito melhores na vida.

Eu acredito,do fundo do meu coraçao,que um dia essa empresa ainda vai engolir muitos sapos quando estiver em riscos de falencia...enfim....atitudes de merda.
Ficam agora com o post original do criador do forum:
"Good evening everybody.
Today I received a letter from the Games Workshop Group PLC stating that if I didn't compy with 4 directives within 14 days they would take formal proceedings against me. It saddens me to see GW take such action against a perfectly legitamate fan site that has provided a global communications portal for BB fans, with no intention of conning them out of the millions they make in sales. I feel that I have been stereotypically branded as an Internet con-man. I have been a GW fan for 20+ years and this site has been active for almost 9 of that 20. This site has also had GW staff registered and actively contribute to its content (it may still have).
The assumptions from GWG PLC are that I am making a profit from the donations received by this site. They also point out that consumers may believe TalkBB is connected with GW and the fact the domain name includes Bloodbowl which is an infringement of GW's registered trademark. Now, I am not against their need to ensure their trademarks are not used inappropriately, I feel they could have approached me in a more friendly manner to investigte the purpose of the site and discover that I only wanted to provide a hub for dicussing Blood Bowl globally. instead, they immediately enter heavy handed.
If they truely believe the donations have contributed to me becoming a wealthy person or that I have made enough money to give up a proper job they are sadly mistaken. The small amount of money donated has gone to pay for the upkeep of the server (when I used my own hardware and hosted it at home) or towards the costs for hosting with an ISP. In short I have been vastly out of pocket to provide TalkBB rather than the other way around. I thank all those that have contributed as it has helped TalkBB survive.
I have been asked to:
Immediately cease and desist from any activity which infringes GW's intellectual property. either remove remove your website or the reference to 'Blood Bowl' in your website name. Remove the donations button from the page. Confirm by return that you will not infringe GW's intellectual properly rights at any time in the future.
Now, I could simply remove Bloodbowl from the domain by renaming it to TalkBB.com, but that means buying a new domain and time spent sorting everything out. Bearing in mind I hardly visit TalkBloodBowl.com anyway, I can't really be bothered with all that so have decided to let it die. Therefore from Sunday 8 November 2009 http://www.talkbloodbowl.com/ will cease to exist.
Should anybody wish to take ownership of the source and contents I will be more than happy to prepare it for transfer, although this will not include the domain name. I will also have to ensure the recipient will not use DB content for anything other than to maintain the forum as part of an existing Blood Bowl site. This is to ensure passwords and emails do not fall into the wrong hands.
Thank you for your support over the years and for making TalkBloodBowl.com what it is today. Without you all it would have died all by itself many years ago, regardless of donations.

Ja sei que me estou a baldar ao trabalho,mas tenho tido uns problemas com a net(pelos vistos se nao a pagar,eles cortam-na....loool),mas nao tenho estado parado...andei aqui com o Axtklinge a preparar a entrevista com o....errrr....ah...quase que me descaia...depois ja vao poder ler ;)
Ate la,vao dando uma vista de olhos aqui:
"Attached please find all the documents associated with the 2008 BBRC Rules Review for Blood Bowl.
2008 Rules Review: low res (5meg): http://www.blood-bowl.net/LRB_PBBL/LRB_5_plus_Experimental2008_lowres.pdf
high res (16meg): http://www.blood-bowl.net/LRB_PBBL/LRB_5_plus_Experimental2008.pdf
New Teams (BBRC Endorsed and NAF ranked ... not officially part of the published Rules Review):

LRB 6.0 document: http://www.blood-bowl.net/LRB_PBBL/NewTeams_LRB6.pdf ===============================================================
Please note the items in red are all experimental which means they are NOT YET official. They will be tested for a period of 1 YEAR. At the end of this one year period, the BBRC will meet one more time to finalize the LRB 6.0 which per Jervis Johnson will be the last changes to the Blood Bowl rulebook for some time to come.
