...place only 2 tournaments and 4 headlines in the extended season variant?

More of it, both of tournaments would be random(not necessairly Blood Bowl at the end), and they will come up strictly at the 3rd and 6th week?

I dont think it would change the balance. But imho the Bloodbowl as last tournament is good, because it has a lot of (and only) fans as reward. With another cup as last one, chances are even smaller to to change the course. The winner would be more predictable.


One could think of advantages or disadvantages for specific teams, as they don't perform exactly with same power in tournaments as in highlights. According to my experience, cheat-heavy teams like Skaven or Chaos are a bit better in tournaments. Therefore they should perform weaker with fewer tournaments in game. But this effect is really very small.

The basic differences between the teams are larger than this effect (even the teams are balanced quite good at all).

Have you considered playing some weeks with *both* a tournament and a headline if you were looking to see more headlines?

Also I agree with the above -> the blood bowl is quite deliberately last as prizes other than fans are a bit pointless in the final week...

I'm not looking to see more headlines, I'm just feeling like tournaments feel kinda distracting if they pop-out here and there.


We played a few times with headline-headline-randomNonBowlTournament-headline-headline-randomBowlTournament order and it turned out to be pretty decent. Tournaments feel special as they should in my opinion and everybody tries to prepare for them in weeks before it and stuff.
