    So I happened upon a link to a blood bowl 2 preview http://www.jeuxvideoandco.com/actus/2014/01/15/preview-bloodblowl-2/, curious I decided to check the google translation:
    Not sure if bad translation or not, but it's pretty pathetic either way. No idea what they mean about the stages.

    But fear not fellow bowlers, because there'll be an EPIC and emotionally engaging campaign mode this time!
    tl:dr blood bowl 2 confirmed for shit

    All I want to know is:

    1) Does it fix Blood Bowl 1 issues? - most importantly the need to open ports, the bugs and the UI

    2) Does it launch with all teams playable?

    Otherwise, it is a useless piece of software.

    Found another preview http://www.gamekult.com/actu/zoom-blood-bowl-ii-A128505.html
    Readding is teh hard.

    Wowowow, so exciting.
    I'd be fine with legendary/chaos edition teams and bugfixes really.

    That's what I meant with all teams. From what I've seen, it seems they will launch with 8 races... again. Yep.

    If that's the case, no fucking way am I going to give even a cent to that shit.

    Maybe in 4 years when there's a gold edition on sale with all the DLC for 80% off.

    Only one question needs answering: Is the AI less terrible now?

    If no, most unecessary sequel ever.

    blood bowl can't really be improved because teams and skills are there. it could be fixed.
    so at best bb2 is a patch.

    So basically, BB2 will be a downgrade of BB:Chaos Edition? How is it supposed to make sense?
    I mean, unless they pull the plug off BB1 multiplayer...

    If they shut down the servers of BB1, then it's FUMBBL time all the way until BB2 roster grows back to the same size.

    A shameless cashgrab. If at least they got with the times and didn't look like shit this time... God, Cyanide is such a shitty company

    BB1 looked just fine, really. Add some AI, an option to speed up the player movement better than holding the +key in BB1 and more of that awesome Jim & Bob commentary and it would be a 1DP for me. As it is, they're gonna bollocks it up.

    How people can stand cyanides UI is beyond me. Sure, fumbbl has less lens flares and canned AAAwesome throwing animations. But at least I won't have to fiddle with the camera every turn to see the entire pitch at a sensible angle.

    From the look of it, BB2 is a reskin of BB1. And you know you're not going to get the new races as DLC either, but as re-releases of the core game at full price with 1-2 additional races added. You won't have the full roster until you have bought the game seven times.

    At least they did away with the awful UI of the previous installment, still does not nearly make it worth a buy yet.

    Meh. A shiny new UI won't make up for the bullshit they're trying to pull again by only releasing like 8 teams and then doing DLC later for the rest.

    welcome to a reskinned blood bowl where you can pay for the same teams three times all over again

    But but, we've already done that.... (to be honest I only did that twice, since there was no upgrade to CE from LE, like there was from Vanilla to LE).
