Game eight:

Young Boys Pontelli vs Horatio's Hookers 

BOBS Football Tournament game #8

 

After the mayhem of the quarter-finals, and the drama of the semis, it all comes down to this: the cup. 

Both teams stepped out onto the pitch bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. The Young Boys had the ball to kick off, and dominated possession from the off. For such tiny people, they definitely weren't afraid of their hook-handed opponents! Ten minutes into the half they scored their first goal, and quickly followed it up with another. However, after that, things started to turn the Hookers' way, as they scored one of their own. It looked like the little lads would take the lead into the second half, but Horatio's boys managed to slip an equaliser in before the whistle.

The second half started favouring the Corrington team. They managed to dominate possession, but struggled to get any shots on target. Twenty minutes in, Bob the snake showed up, and settled into a warm spot just inside the Hookers' penalty area. With no-one able to shoo him off, play was resumed around him. This did, however, have consequences, when the Young Boys scored again. A linesman judged that the ball had bounced off Bob, and discounted it. It was getting late in the game, and both teams were getting very tired. Then, an exasperated lad toe-punted the ball upfield, and the pig's bladder caught an unexpected breeze, and soared over Horatio's men. The goalkeeper, busy trying to scare the snake, failed to get back to his line on time. With a single bounce, the ball crossed the line, and sealed the victory for Pontelli: 3:2! The Young Boys won the cup!

That is a nice and welcome surprise at the end of a working week! :pir-huzzah1: :pir-huzzah2:

I have some questions regarding the price/license, I guess @Ross Fisher is best suited to make the call(s).

  1. Is the free license for a "normal" build or for a micro build?
  2. Does the prize license count as one like mentioned in the licensing rules under point #5?
  3. Would you (or Oleon in general) have anything against an official WTC representation in Nola Mar? I was thinking "some sort of WTC office" as a medium commerce property.

Maybe @Ayrlego and/or @Bregir can also help with this, in particular the second question.

Thanks in advance to all of you!

I see no reason why the linked rule wouldn't apply, i.e., prize licenses don't count against the monthly license limit.

Thanks for the good idea. I will build an FTA Office on Nola Mar as a medium commerce property. :pir-grin:

Honestly, after Fatu Hiva, that might be an issue. Buuuttt, could I interest you in an unofficial WTC representation? A black market out in the farmland, or a safehouse hidden in the sewers?
