Ike Lonesome and Illan Fothongriel were bitten by their own teammates. Supposedly the vampires were a bit hungry having rested for a long time their last game beeing somewhat 9 months ago. So hungry in fact they kept on biting the thralls supposed to do the ballgame, in stead of the thralls hired to be their bait..
Blodberg von Cryptchant dies unregenerateably when failing a TD GFI in turn 8 first half. The score would have been 2-0 to BATtling Cobras at that time, instead the star vamp was lost and so too supposedly the match.
Slick Defenders had their armour saving them several times, hence none of them ventured to Valhalla.
