I will start with a question, out of all the skills dedicated to making dodges away difficult (Diving Tackle, Tentacles, Shadowing, Prehensile Tail etc.), which do you find the most effective?

>which do you find the most effective?
Side step usually the guys you mark don't want to dodge so they will try to blitz your marking play Sidestep can do a lot of thing to prevent the blitzer from getting away even if the player is knocked down.

Most effective would be the mutation skills followed by diving tackle with tackle for my own experience.

>> No.43956409

>>43954331
Not to mention, Dorfs thrives on being more skilled up then their opponents at similar TVs. So, at least in a match making mode (as opposed to league where you would be fucking yourself over with rerolls and troll slayers) your opponent gets 160K TV for the death roller which is 8 skills. 8 Skills for a dude who can play one drive.

Plain old Tackle is first - it's useful on both offense and defence.
After that, depends on a number of factors. Tentacles is probably one of the best all round but only if it's on someone with ST5+; otherwise it's kind of meh.

Also like >>43954394 there's a lot more generally useful skills to take that make getting away more difficult - Side Step, Block, etc.

There's Chaos god-specific rosters in FUMBBL's Secret League (still under development), with god specific CWs with their own special starting statline and mutations as per the Nurgle roster. Tzeentch Warriors go down to AV8 but get Hypno (only at AG3, though) and Extra Arms, while Slaanesh CWs go down to S3 but start with Claw.

There's also Daemon rosters (that follow the Daemons of Khorne roster model with a Big Guy Greater Daemon, lesser demon postionals (ex. Daemonettes: MA7/S3/AG4/AV7/Hypno, Regen, Claw) and cultist linemen.

It's turn 16 the only way to get your ball into the opponent end zone is by getting past a prone player.

Your opponent has a clear shot at getting your ball carrier. But he will not do it since only his best player can get there and he knows you will foul on turn 16.

Why would you foul on turn 16 for the off chance of killing a Wardancer when you have a TD to score?

I think the one people were bothered by the most was the free upgrade to the Catchers in light of the random nerf to Orcs.

Now let's get real here, I'm told the Dark Elves are the closest thing to a bashy elf team but how bashy is that? I mean, how confident can I feel at blitzing away? How much different is it from playing wood elves, high elves or boring elves?

>> No.43982735

>>43982699
If you mean bashy as in pile on everyone in the middle of the pitch and punch eachother until there's no one to carry the ball then no. Dark Elves do the elfy things but with less passing and more hitting, in a way that they're spread out and picking single targets and not clumped up in a scrum.

This, your team is very versatile but can get its teeth kicked in if you don't know what you are doing. They live and die by good ball hawk'n and knowing when to pick a fight.

They can be described as Amazons, but stay good at higher TV and not for scrub. This is because Dykes have good skills that make them "psydo elves" and are a pain to deal with, but once a team has tackle their lack luster stats (notably speed and armor) become useless

>> No.43982832

>>43982786
On the offense you want your ball carrier (ideally the runner) in a loose cage, so that your opponent can't get to him and if he blitzes a side he's not right next to him. If he does get blitzed he has target to dump off to. You can kind of use your linemen to mark enemy important pieces because they're AV8 or dodge them away to make a screen between them and where the action's happening.

Also if you have already won the game and the score is 3-0 you are not allowed to stop the opposing td because you don't get anything out of it either and you only do it for petty reasons.

Who wants to hear dialoge from the biggest faggot to play Bloodbowl?
heres the game for refferance

<animal17> when you roll a dice...and take 6 for 18 times...is not good game
<Ayylmao> what makes a bad game is when someone complains the whole time, I've had my teams desimated but I could sit back and chuckle

He had about 5 out by half time, 8 within 2 turns of the resart, and the bitching began. Christ, typical French arsehole. He must spend half of his evenings mad as fuck.

Personally I like the Pile-On rule changes and changes to fouling; it makes more teams capable of pitch clears and is a definite boost to teams that feature low value linemen.

Some of the NTBB houserules are actually implementable in FUMBBL private leagues; the Pile-On nerf and the Fouling buff are used in a number of them (yet another reason to play FUMBBL over the Cyanide games)

>> No.43987359

>>43982699
Think of Dark Elves as a surgical scalpel - their "bash game" is about bringing very focused strength to bear in precise spots, not flailing around wildly.

The main reasons they can't afford to get tied in a scrum is DE have expensive players, and thus at equivalent TV another team will always have a deeper bench. You still want to play like an elf team at the end of the day - just remember that knocking a guy down is an equally valid way of preventing him from bashing you back.

Other teams can take casualties and still have replacements, DE generally do not have the bench depth to outlast an opponent despite AV8.

Basically it was sort of a slider that slid between you and your opponent, based on how your rolls performed against the expected "average" outcome. It was removed as it was mostly meaningless - you roll a lot of dice in Blood Bowl but what counts as a "success" depends on the situation (sometimes you want a push for a surf or a 1 turner, not a pow, for example) and it's hardly a meaningful sample size.

Nurgle is chaos with a focus on stopping elfball and quick offence

Nurgle players usually put Claw as the 4th or 5th skill on a nurgle warrior and they usually have 1-2 clawpomb killers

But Nurgle already gets a buff with cheap replaceable linemen on top of the versatile Beastmen, and Warriors with Regen and Foul Appearance/Disturbing Presence. Even the Big Guy, sure he loses Horns compared to a Mino but he's a lot more obedient.

I'm with you, they're a good team but not nerfworthy.

The only time they get remotely scary is early to mid-level TV rating, when they all have Block, Tackle and then Guard, and you can't block or dodge away without a lot of Team Re-rolls. Otherwise at lower and upper TV levels, their low speed linemen, one-dimensional Centaurs, and Wrestle-Fend Hobgoblins don't really look all that great.

Plan seems to be to have a top 8 elimination bracket once that's done, so that's another 3 rounds on top of that.

After that, we're most likely going to create a split for a Veterans league (existing teams can participate), and the Rookies league (newly joining teams) running at the same time. Coaches who are playing this season can have a team in both.

Though that makes me wonder - after that point, how will we handle a third season? I mean I may be getting ahead of myself here, but some of the 2 season veteran teams might find themselves being less valuable than the 1 season rookie team a coach had started.

Maybe let people opt to retire their old veteran team in favor of moving the formerly rookie team into the veteran league (and opening up a spot for the new rookie league)?

Or are we going to have a TV range split after that?

Maybe Slibli and a reroll then? Even with Guard Delves will have trouble getting through 8 4+ STR players, and you'll have enough rerolls so that you won't be crippled by a couple of early bad rolls.

mild BB2 QQ post

So, playing Delves and i understand that all dodges are risky but constantly, (i'm talking like 4 in a row) the first dodge of the turn was a one die.

needless to say, i burned through my RRs quick and had to leave some dodges to my opponent to take, as for me the 2+ was too risky.

how do you feel playing in these situation, where you are getting effortlessly "worked" hard? i tend to just give up.

Sounds like you were just unlucky. 2+ is the same roll for gfi and the best chance for getting a successful action. I've seen welfs succeed on all dodge rolls even at 4+ and then fail every other roll the next few turns. Nuffle is a very generous god, when he chooses.

That's what inducements are for - BB is much better than say, Mordheim in this regard. A lower TV team isn't automatically beaten by a higher TV one - smart use of inducements goes a long way.
I think giving coaches the option to swap their current veteran team for another team out of the rookie league is a fine option though.

I would recommend Helmut Wulf and some bribes - chainsaws are very good at countering Blodge players because they ignore rolling Block dice completely (especially if they're only AV7 or AV8). The DE player may decide to score fast if he's on the pitch to get him off fast, but then you can spend a bribe to keep him around for your possession and then kill elves.

Wulf's also only 110k; which means you can get 1 bribe and a wizard, or 2 bribes and something small.

>> No.44004643

>>44004501
Another option is to take Helmut Wulf and Hemlock. This gives you a chainsaw and a stabber - both of which ignore block dice; and Hemlock has the very nice Jump Up and Side Step skills which means you'll be stabbing very frequently so long as he doesn't get injured. This leaves Helmut without any bribes so you'd better be sure you get a lot of mileage out of him on the one drive.

A chainsaw breaks AV8 72% of the time (thanks to the chainsaw +3) - Wulf will be your go-to for the blitz when you need a Blodge elf down. Stab will only work 28% of the time on AV8, but 41% on AV7, but Hemlock is much better at staying up and being annoying.

If you're playing BB2 or Chaos Edition, where they don't implement any of the chainsaw star players, you should feel bad and play something else. Access to chainsaw star players is an important component of overall balance - it gives novice teams a chance to compete against Blodge.

I won't make a proper announcement until the time comes, but here's a rough outline:

From next season there will be a main "veteran" league for those coaches who wish to enter with their team from the season previous.

New coaches, and coaches wanting to start a new team, will enter a fresh team into the "rookie" league.

At the end of the season, you can either carry on with your team in the veteran league or start a new team in the rookies.

Formats will depend on numbers but will be 6 rounds and the veterans will have playoff finals.

Note you will only be allowed to compete in one League per season, and have one team in the /tg/ group at a time.

While i understand some people may feel bummed about 1-team-across-leagues rule (not me, i will be starting in babbies) - i think it is reasonable. Allowing that would only encourage people to try an juggle 2 teams on a schedule, and it usually stops working out somewhere down the line.

I'm a shite sculptor and I came out with these; before trying I had failed in even filling small gaps or sculpting on bigger trousers to a model (the magic trick was just letting it set awhile).

Round knee pads can be as simple as a blob of green stuff pushed onto the model. The shoulder pads you see were the same as the knee pads, but once they were dry I put on some green stuff sausages on the edge and eased them into an oval shape. The helmets were initially just a blob, then a couple of overhanging bits for the forehead and cheek guards, then thin sausages for the bars, then a blob where the guards begin to show a hinge.

Seriously, if you're just getting started Blood Bowl's a great place to try conversions; you can get models cheaply off ebay and all you need to do is add a couple of shoulder pad blobs to show that they're Blood Bowl players. Chuck away a tenner on some ratmen and see what you can do.

>> No.44022468

>>44022388

I hasten to add that I obviously didn't sculpt the entire models; the skeletons are my conversions from a bunch of ancient miniatures a friend had hanging around. Mummies were from ebay. The whole setup cost me a tenner and two cans of Monster.

Blood Bowl is a game that needs a solid assessment of multiple probability. Usually, most games don't penalize you for failure, so you just need to keep in mind the odds of a single roll.

But because failure is such a big deal in BB, you need to assess the probability of actions over the course of an entire turn. 1 GFI only fails 16.67% of the time, but 6 GFIs in one turn raise the chance of a turnover to a much higher degree.

Manage your risks. Do the least risky things first, never take more risks than necessary to score or prevent a score.

Don't make one-dice blocks just because a player can't do anything else.

Think about tackle zones.

Plan one or two turns ahead (more than this is generally futile because of BB's mechanics). Also, THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR OPPONENT'S STRATEGY IS AND WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH. All these things make a difference, and are much better than just optimistically rolling some dice and reacting to the outcomes.

Microsoft paid youtube personalities to say "The Xbox One" instead of xbone.

With the pricing payout policy shifts on youtube the small-to-mid-weight personalities have to shill or else they cannot profit, it's been absolutely gutted.

The only reviews which are trust worthy are the steam user reviews, however between the meme reviews, moderation and mass appeal popularity reviews those too are untrustworthy.

Even battlefront reviewed well, and if you honestly think that battlefront is a good game, well, maybe ign is the right place for you.

TL;DR play games or watch someone else play the game, don't listen to what they say, just look at the gameplay mechanics and decide if you enjoy that.
