We're here to teach you how to play in MML Blitz!
In matches of MML Blitz, players coach mixed race teams that are pitted against each other in a special Blood Bowl 2 match.
MML Blitz lets you make up your mixed race team as you see fit, within the rules of the game engine that is.
Some players will use their team to create stories and explore the rich narratives that the MML is famous for.
Some players enjoy Blitz as a more competitive experience and seek to gain every advantage they can from their players.
For all of us, Blitz is just an awesome place to hang out, play some Blood Bowl with friends.

How to Build
Here we will take you through the process of building your team. From setting up your stadium to choosing the right name, you’ll find invaluable hints and tips whether you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned Blood Bowl veteran.
Building your MML Blitz Team is the first stage of bringing your Blitz franchise to life. This page contains all the information you need to build your Blitz team!
Once you have decided what coalition your team will be, you should log into the Blood Bowl 2 game and create a new Mixed Race team:
After you select your coalition you will be presented with the following screen:
- Team Name
- The name you give your team is probably the single most important thing you can do. It is the name chanted from the stands and how the entire fandom identifies you!
- Your team name has to conform to the following format:
- [Location] [Mascot]
- For example, the Middenheim Grasshoppers.
- The location need not be an actual place, but it does need to sound and read like it could be an actual place.
- Additionally, the mascot should be something that everyone can identify with, not a made up item or word.
- Team Logo
- Your Team Logo is a graphic representation of your team. It goes on your uniform, on all your merchandise and advertising and is even branded on your home pitch!
- When choosing your Team Logo, be sure to utilize a logo that no other Blitz team has.
- Team Logos are required to be unique among all teams, and no two teams share the same logo.
- Jersey Color
- Much like your Team Logo, the color of your team is instantly recognizable.
- When choosing your Jersey Color, be sure to utilize a color that no other Blitz team has.
- Jersey Colors are required to be unique among all teams in the same Division, due to system limitations a few teams will field the same jersey color.
- Custom Team
- Be sure to check the Custom Team box.
- You will not be able to create your Blitz team if this box is not checked.
Note: Blitz does not allow special characters in any of its names. Please use only characters from the English alphabet (A-Z) and no numerals or special characters.
Once done, click X to continue on to….
Next you will prompted to select a home stadium and give it a name:
Just like when you named your team, be sure to give your stadium a name that everyone can relate to and recognize. Shy away from names that describe an action or event, and go for names of buildings or structure that your team would be proud to play in.
Once done, click X to create your team…
You will will be presented with the following option:
Click O (No)…
Next the Team Roster screen will appear, looking something like this:
- Team Amenities
- Cheerleaders (optional)
- Team Re-Roll (optional) (prices vary by coalition)
- Apothecary (optional) (if available for coalition)
- Fan Factor (Teams may NOT purchase Fan Factor)
- Coach Assistant (optional)
After you have outfitted your team with their amenities, you will want to decide what kind of Stadium you want:
- Stadium Upgrade (optional)
- Teams are allowed to upgrade their stadium as they see fit, deducting the price from their budget
- Note: Some sponsors require a stadium to be a certain level before they will sponsor you
- Stadium Enhancement (optional)
- You are welcome to purchase any stadium enhancement you like
- Note: Some sponsors require a certain stadium enhancement before they will sponsor you
- Cheerleader (optional)
- You can select the type of cheerleaders you want
Note: Blitz teams do NOT select a Sponsor in-game, unless their Blitz Sponsor is also an in-game sponsor and they have signed with that sponsor.
You have just created your new Blitz Franchise team!!!
How to Draft
It’s time for you to get some players on your team! Not team is complete without a roster of pitch pounding misanthropes to trundle around the field for a few hours in an attempt to do something the fans will love. We will take you from a vacant locker room to a club house full of sweaty jock straps in no time!
Draft Your Team
Signing players to your teams roster is the next step your Blitz franchise needs to undertake. This page goes through all the information you will need to scout, draft and pay your players!
Once you have built your team, you should log on to the website and start scouting players by checking out the:
Free Agent Market
The Free Agent Market lists all the players who are draft eligible. You will want to filter, search and inspect these players as potential draft picks. One of the best ways to search for potential players is to search for them by position:
However you find your players, it is beneficial to write down the players name and player ID for future reference. This information will be invaluable as you go into the actual draft.
Once you have a good approximation of who you would like to draft for your team, its time for us to show you how…
Drafting players to your roster isn’t as daunting as it might seem. The Draft in Blitz is live and happens real time with Coaches and General Managers picking players for their teams in a series of rounds.
To get set up for the draft you will want to head to the OnlineDraft.com website and login. Once on the site you can begin to rank your players:
Once the draft is complete and you have paid for your players, you will want to log into Blood Bowl 2, go to your Blitz team and start creating your players exactly as you they appeared when you drafted them.
You will want to go down your draft result list and Buy a player from your team roster:
- Buy a player
- For each player you signed in the draft you will want to purchase that exact player on your roster.
Don’t worry about leveling them up or giving them skills, we will do that next…
When you select the player from your roster to view them you will be presented with this screen. If you drafted a player that comes with skills and additional levels you will want to get to this screen and press X (Level Up!)…
Once on the above screen, select the exact Skill, Injury or Characteristic that the player had when you acquired them. You will have to repeat this step for each level.
If you mess up, you can simply “Fire” the player, recreate them and try again.
Once you have done this for all your players, you are ready for the season.
You have just signed your first draft class!!!
How to Blitz!
Now that you have your team built your team and drafted your players, you are ready to head to the pitch for some skull crushing action (hopefully not your own skull)!
Once your team has been audited and you have accepted your ticket for the upcoming season you are ready to play.
The most important thing to remember is to have fun out there!!!
- Coaches Headset
- An invaluable piece of equipment that puts you in contact with everything on the field
- It also puts you in contact with the coach on the other side of the pitch, and what better way to enjoy Blitz than to have a great chat while playing!!!
- PS4 Controller
- This device will allow you to direct the action on the pitch.
- There is a reason “mead” is the first word in the MML, we never go thirsty and neither should you. Always have a refreshing beverage within arms reach while playing Blitz
- This rule is not optional.
- You’ll want to make sure you have a comfortable spot to coach your team from, chances are you will be sitting here long after the game is over wishing you could play more, or perhaps you already ARE playing more! Kudos to you, kudos…to you.
You are an official MML Blitzer!!!
