So, it's pretty simple - I'm playing through the campaign and have got to the match against the Gouged Eye. It says next match objectives: level up your players.

The play match button is greyed out though none of my players have enough SPP to advance.

Is this a bug? How do I continue?

  • If you like the game in terms of gameplay and tactical complexity, but get tired of this buggy version of it you can try playing on fumbbl.com. Commented Oct 2, 2015 at 4:54

Looks like a bug to me, indeed. Did you try loading a save and replaying [part of] the match so that one of your players can level up ? If you don't have a previous save, well... keep one next time :p

I did only play the first version of official blood bowl (Botocs ftw !), but from what I remember, such bugs wouldn't surprise me much.

Are you sure you don't have another problem ? (e.g., needing to hire some temporary player to replace a wounded one ?) I'm not sure such a blocking condition exists, but it can be worth double checking.

  • There are no saves, it's all online and it auto saves when you finish a match etc.

  • @Tim B Indeed, you're screwed then :( Report the bug to officials support if it hasn't been already. Btw, you are not alone http://steamcommunity.com/app/236690/discussions/0/523898291490459384/ If you don't want to wait for an hypothetic bugfix and choose to restart the campaign instead, I'd advise to keep as much players as possible close to a level next time you get here. And choose the good one(s) to score TD, btw :) Some passes can also help to get a sixth XP, e.g. on players with MVP

If you are technical then get SQLLite DB Browser. Then use it to open campaign.db file in your BloodBowl 2 directory - probably in your user documents. Find the table called bb_player_listing. Find one of your players and increment the value nbLevelsUp to 1. Then write changes and load the game. This will let you give this player a level boost and get past the issue.

  • i know this is a very old comment but i just stumbled upon it. wouldn't changing the values in this way mess up the game as it seems to be communicating with a server every time one navigates to the team roster page? Commented Aug 17, 2017 at 1:41
