I’m no expert (never coached Kislev or their froggy forefathers) but starting out with a catcher-heavy lineup sounds like a bad idea as they’ll hog the SPP. I like the first setup you posted. Blitzers need SPP to be useful and having a bear from the start should hopefully reduce the number of linos you’ll need to replace.

I'd also go with the first or second setup.

 

The bear (especially with Break Tackle) adds some much-needed interception capability. I personally consider the Blitzers borderline useless given their price, but they have your only strength access. If you want to cage-leap you'll need at least one to guard.

 

The catchers are surprisingly essential in the beginning as your only reliable ball handlers and leaping assists. You need your re-rolls elsewhere and can't waste them on pickups etc.

It's an age-old slann balance for sure. But those blitzers are so expensive for what they bring.

Ok here is the lineup of my opponents:

 

MD1 Bjj hero and his orcs: Could be worse, no guard yet, so leaping shenanigans are possible

MD2 AA and his dark elves, AA has never played with emos before, so that might be something?

MD3 Necro, will be nasty

MD4 JJape and his Chorfs... next MD please

MD5 Norse, hopefully theyve been mauled by now so i get to play vs a bunch of loners

MD6 moer dark elves

MD7 txlan and his by now lvld helves, so thats not gonna be fun

MD8 Khemri.. depening on how developed the team is by now itll be touch and go

MD9 more chorfs.. lets hope they dont destroy my team pre Season 25...

Right, MD1 report.

summary: no gate keepers, no ref.. pitchinvasion, 2 riots and 6 fouls without a end off...

0cAr1f5.jpg

 

So we face @bjj hero and his vanilla (albeit green) orcs. 4 blitzers, 4 blorcs, 1 thrower 2 linorcs

We win the toss and i decide to defend as usual while playing Kislev.

Kickoff result is a pitch invasion, leaving the entire LoS (so both sides) downed and also the 3 Kislevites that held the left side of the pitch.

One of the fans took the ball from the pitch resulting in a touchback. So now we had an open flank and a blackorcs with the ball. The orcs caged up and started their stroll. An attempt to get a die, ended with a failed dodge. Next turn we made another attempt at the ball, resulting in a BD so the ball was loose, but in too may TZ's. Next turn another blackorc picked it up and theorcs caged up again.

Out of Rerolls ans not seeing any logical path to get the ball back I decided to appease Nuffle for the second half end started to foul.

No ref present, so 6 fouls and 2 Ko'd orcs later they walk in the 0-1. In the meantime the orcs did some hitting KOíng 2 players. AV8 was working wonders this game

My T8 i tried a 1TTD, but failed a dodge i needed, so 0-1 halftime

eiUsgEU.jpg

 

I guess all the fouling appeased our Lord and Savior Nuffle as the 2nd half went rather smoothly. We started with a riot and then we scored with a classic 3 turn TD (was supposed to be 2 turns, but i burned a RR and needed a GFi to score and didnt dare that), Koíng another orc in the process. so 1-1

 

The KO'd orcs stayed asleep, meaning we had 11 vs 9 with 3 turns left...

a deep kick, some leaps and dodges further, he had players in their half, other played locked, but with some solid blocking the orcs still found an open path halfway to our field. Then on T16 Nuffle blessing befell my Kislev. It started with a scare; To free up a player to blitz the BC, we had to 2die an orc. bdbd.. gah!- RR- pushpush, phew, but no RR left for the rest. 

Blitz on BC-> succes, bounce in 1 TZ-> block on blorc to remove TZ-> succes-> Lineman picks up-> succes-> short pass to awaiting catcher-> success-> 2-1 say WHAT???

 

some T16 LoS block led to nothing.

 

All in all a good game, where i got very lucky on the lack of AV breaks 6/35 vs 8 for me (given 5 were from haevy assisted fouls) and the KO's orcs not returning helped a lot. I just ran with what Nuffle gave me..

 

1 catcher scored 2 TD's so has dodge

blitzer got MVP, so will make a pass next MD

1 lineman got a pass

 

enough gold for an apo

 

all in all a very unexpected but very welcome start of the season

MD2 vs @Arwens Arrows and his emos or how a useless bear lose a match

 

first couple of turns were rather uneventfull. Arwen got the ball to hi blodger, i tried to base it, but didnt get there. Meanwhile Arwen injured 1 and ko'd  players.

 

then on T4 I finally got a 2die on the ballcarrier and even got a POW!!!. the ball landed in a TZ, but a leap and pickup later my cather had it. he was somewhat protected.

 

On his T5 Arwen dodged out of DT (didnt work once the whole game) got a pow on the bc, but it landed in the Bear's TZ. SO on my turn i just needed to push an elf away with the bear to get another go at a pickup. BDBD, loner failed, so bear down, no more TZ on ball and a free run for the emos. In the last couple of turns a catcher got injured (apo'd) another KO'd. tried some fouling to even the numbers, but to no avail, so 0-1 at T8

my T8 I got the pass on the blitzer to lvl him

 

2nd half started ( 9 vs 10 players) with a riot leaving the left flank open, so i scored 1-1 in 2 turns (albeit with some luck as the blodger snaked a dodge to base my BC)

 

next kickoff i get a blitz. Arwen left his middle wide open. all i needed was a push from the blitz by my bear. BDBD loner fail, so blitz event over (bear did niggle the lino he blitzed, so theres that).

 

the emos got another KO (8vs9) and got the ball on the blodger again and got him safely screened. last couple of turns bear got another injury in, but i also lost 3 more players on injuries or KO'S. was nothing i could do anymore with 5 vs 8 so tried some blitz and fouling, all to no avail.

 

1-2 loss. Sure i had expected to lose vs arwen and his emos, but a bit less red hot removal dice from him and a less shitty bear, wouldve made this game a bit interesting and not a chore to get through.

 

blitzer lvld and got block, bear just needs 1 more cas to lvl.

 

next game ill have 10 players+1 loner, but hopefully i can buy the 4th RR after that and then start saving for the 2nd blitzer

Apart from the D1 at at a crucial moments as a low point, we shan't complain. While your big fuzzy bear did KO and niggle the knee of another player, we absolutely adore your big white. In fact, there was a team vote after the match and we have decided to adopt him as a team mascot after the match. Panthers are overrated, and hope that you are willing to sell. We will be good to him!

MD3:

macth vs necro with a guard ghouls and just 1 wolf, could go any way.

in the first 7 turns i received 6 removals 4 KO, 1 Bh 1 -av

I won the kick and opted to defend always. First blood was by a fan who KO'd my dodge catcher with a well aimed rock...

As the necro's plwoed down the field, removing at least 1 player per turn i was trying my best to be a nuisance. i somehow made a 1die block on their BC and got the ball on a lino. All i coudl do at that point was run a cather in the endzone and throw a long pass, which failed. It did leave the ball near their end zone, with most player left up field. on T5 the blitzer jumped up, downed the wolf who had a tz on the ball, picked it up and passed 2 GFI's fir a 1-0 lead.. WTF??? ah well,. Kislev BS.

 

0/2 KO rolls so had to defend 7 vs 11

kickoff result: Blitz! got the catcher un der the ball, with 2 supporters. its no surprise the necro got the ball bakc, but it bounced onto a Golem. Insted of handing it off to a player with enough move on T7 he caged him up near the LoS and put a lone wolf in scoring range. I got an easy 2die on the wolf, so 1-0 at HT.

 

0/5 Ko rolls, so 3 KO's and 2 injured... 6 vs 10 as wis KO stayed out as well.

tried to get a player upfield, but he was surfed quickly (5 vs10), tried to blitz with the bear BDBD loner fail and the suffered another KO (4 vs10). got a pass in on the catcher,m just to get some SPP, but with just too few players there was no stopping the 1-1 at T13

 

kickoff 6 vs 11 again

Blitz! and he got a wolf under the ball, i was able to down him, but with just too many necros around i couldnt get the ball

my t15 i was able to puch the ghoul on the ball, which bounced into the blitzing lino's hands. I was able to make a half cage, which wasnt enough to stop the BC getting downed, but i put him near the sideline, hopeing for a bad throwin for the necros. it landed near the LoS on his half. i tried to get it in the hands of my dodging catcher, but rolled a 1. on the necros t16 he needed a 3+2+4+3+, needed the RR on the 2+ and failed the last 3+, so we somehow ended in an undeserved 1-1.

 

gg @Moss8

 

dodge catcher got mvp, so is blodge now

also got enough cash for 4th RR, so can now start saving for a 12th player (2nd blitzer)

 

chorfs next....

MD4 vs @JJape and his chorfs. He only had 4 chorfs as 2 were injured

 

We lost the toss and were forced to attack. Some hits were exchanged (a KO a side) we went left, they went left, back to the middle we went right, they were to slow to follow, we scored on our T7. the first 5-6 turns of this half felt more like playing fantasy chess

hhgm6Ho.jpg

 

His T7 the kick went deep, which i felt was good, but he somhow managed to pass to a bullcentaur which was able to run upfield in TD range, I had to make a dodge to get a 2die on the ballcarrier and was get him down, fouled him, but no av break. His T8 the bull got up, blitzed free, breaktackled out, but failed the pick-up. phew 1-0 at HT

 

Izkq2pz.jpg

 

My Ko'd stayed out so 9 vs 11 in the 2nd half meant i was basically playing for a draw unless i was able to do Kislev madness..

Kickoff event BLITZ!

I was able to put someone on the ball and surround the spot. The catch failed unfortunately and the ball bounced away from my players.. AS i overcommitted i figured i was in trouble. The next 4 turns were basically all 1 die blitzes on the BC and only getting pushes (but getting to the blitz was good enough) and injuring 2 Chorfs (1 by the bear who lvld with that)

 

My t15, out of RR 1 players in range of the BC need GFi and 1die block..

JsYXRz2.jpg

 

Defender stumbles, the ball is lose!

 

His t16 jjape had to spent his last RR on a BDBD block with a hobbo (i think making that block was one of the few mistakes he made this game) and then failing the pickup with a bull, so 1-0 end..

 

I feel i really got lucky to get a win here, even more so with an intact team. i couldnt break his AV7 hobbos, received only KO's and injured 2 AV9 chorf.. weird stuff

 

Bear lvld got breaktackle

Lino got mvp , so will make a pass next game

 

90k gold in the bank, either buy a 3rd cather now or wait to buy 2nd blitzer

 

norse next, lets hope they lose some players on md4

 

2-1-1 is way better than i expected to be at this point

Imo Blitzer at this point is way better (they get SPP more slowly, while catchers tend hog it all). And with low amount of guard getting more str2 players means you get outmatched more easily

  • 2 weeks later...

a kind reminder from Nuffle why i ragequit 18 months ago

was down 3 players by t2 (2 ko and 1 injured) and down 6 by t6

rolled 36 1's vs 21-25 2-6's, most on 2+ leaps

 

oh and i broke av7 twice, despite making 5 MB hits with the bear.

 

we kicked and until t7 i actually had a 1die blitz on the BC every turn, but either the leap failed, or the pickup to get the ball.

 

2nd half we started with 7 vs 11 and was down 5 vs 11 by t10. end turned from that moment on. so lost 0-2

 

sunny side is that i dont have to worry about trying to get top 3 this season. i almost felt like i belonged there after md1-4, but Nuffle decided to put me back in my rightfull place.

 

another positive side was that i didnt lose any players, just a MNG, but i got the cash to buy my 2nd blitzer. AND the block blitzer got the mvp to lvl and now has guard. Also the 1 spp i got was with the 5/6 lineman who can wrestle now.

 

lets see if my next game will be a bit more 2 sided

MD6 vs Kruhl and his Emo Elves

we induced a babe, but didnt get a KO :)

 

we lost the toss, but had to attack anyways. first turn resulted in 2 MNG elves (1 from a block 1 from a foul)

sp yeah that happened. after removing yet another elf in t2  i was feeling confident.. silly me..

 

on his t2 the agi5 witch dove into my side cage and surfed the BC. the scatter was easy enough for an emo to pick up. turn 3 and 4 were me getting the ball back, fouling another emo to MNG, Kruhl failing gfi's and my bear staying stupid

KkQE5RP.jpg

 

Also the bear tailed worked a total of 0/8 times this game, I suspect he went to shorten it too look better

 

anyways, so we score on T5

 

11vs8, short kick and i was able to steal the ball on my T7, needed a hand off and a GFI to go up 2-0, failed the handopff-> RR-> succes-> fail GFI

1-0 HT

 

8 vs 11 and I get a perfect defence.

8vs 10 after first loS hit as a blitzer got BH

I retaliate with a foul on his witch getting  a KO, but in doin so I give him an open lan to run in. My T10 I can make a 2dieuphill but it fails, so 1-1 on his T11

 

9 vs 8 as i also had 2 sent offs

T12-14 were a mad scramble for the ball where in the end i got it in relative safety (with a AG5 witch everything is relative. On his t1 he got a 3+4+2+2+ 1die blitz, but failed both GFI's.

son in the end we won 2-1

 

no lvl ups, but also none missin gplayers and 4 players very close to lvling

 

next md, more elves, this time the high kind with lots of dodge
