DreadBall Roster Sheet & Rankings Website
It's been great to see so many of you receiving your pledges and posting pictures of your games on social media, particularly the DreadBall Fanatics Facebook Group. The vast majority of pledges have now been sent from the warehouse.
Unfortunately, due to a problem with the pledge manager data provided to us, we were short of a handful of rulebooks. This means a few of you may have received a note saying 'book to follow' on your pledge. What's more, there are a small amount of Jack pledges that we have been unable to send because we haven't got the rulebooks.
However, the good news is that the extra books have been ordered and we'll be able to complete these pledges very soon. We're extremely sorry for this delay. If you are short of a book, please remember that the PDF rules and cards are still available to download from a previous update.
TEAM & CAPTAIN CARDS
We've seen a lot of questions regarding the Team and Captain Cards. So we wanted to clear up any confusion.
Team Cards - at retail, we'll be including a team card with the teams. These cards are simpy used as a reference for stats, which Kickstarter backers have in the book. They contain exactly the same information you have in your books (it's actually the same page but without the page numbers on) so you don't require them to play if you're a Kickstarter backer. However, just in case you want to receive Team Cards, we'll be making these available to purchase on the Mantic website in late March and we'll let you know once they're available.
Captain Cards - the Kickstarter included the Captain Cards for the Ninth Moon Tree Sharks, Draconis All-Stars, Matsudo Tectonics and New Eden Revenants (at the Striker and above level). We will be producing the Captain Cards for the remaining Captains in late March. Like the Team Cards we'll be making these available to purchase on the Mantic website and will ensure that Kickstarter backers receive a discount code if they want to pick them up. Each deck will contain 10 cards and we're currently planning to split them into seasons, alongside a big bundle to pick them all up.
Apologies for not sending this over sooner but here's a roster sheet so you can track the progress of your players during leagues. You can download it here.
Finally, a quick update on our rankings website. Something we've always wanted to do with DreadBall is create a website where people can see who is the best player in the galaxy.
We're delighted to say that a brand new rankings website is currently in development and will go into closed testing towards the end of January. The official launch of the rankings website will be March ready for the retail launch.
We'll keep you posted on its progress and will send over some concept shots soon.
