    With Elves, your linemen are also key-players. Agi 4 means a lone lineelf uncovered (or even covered by 1 TZ) means they're a veritable risk for the opponent. They will eat up your TRRs though.

    Starting with 0 TRRs seems brave, but I usually focus a lot on my linepeople unless playing Gobos.

    Also another difference between the elf teams I guess. Dark Elf teams lack Pass and Catch, while High and Pro lack Dodge completely. Meanwhile the Wood Elf side has all those skills and a lot more Dodge than anyone else too. I suspect zero TRRs probably wouldn't work out so well for any other elf side.

    I generally agree with VV though - TRRs will turn any elf on the squad into a goal scorer.

    Well, yes, the downside to all those skills is that the players are expensive, and putting together a full roster from the get go leaves no funds for anything else. However, having the full roster means you can punish your opponent for even the smallest mistake, which is what gave me that scoreline against PresterJohn. To be fair, Nuffle was more on my side than his, but it would have been a victory anyway I think.

    My experience playing gobbos so far, at least whilst they're unskilled, is that luck plays a massive part, and then it's a lot of scrabbling around trying to pick up the pieces. With WElfs, you've got your playbook sorted pretty much from the start.

    No denying that goblins suffer at the whims of the dice more than almost any other team :)

    Really stupid! Kickback! And a dude who has to chuck a fizzling bomb with mediocre AG... lots of dodge though.

    Rock'n'roll... I am humbled to play the mighty Jiiiim, three time winner of the DoD (barf! ... although there is some irony given that I'm at the very bottom of the DoD and you're at the top). I've got some work to do, then I'm up for it.

    While I am proud that I somehow got two goals back to make it 2-2 (and then lost 3-2), I'm displeased with the continued paper armour of my delves.

    I shall have to use some kind of training montage to toughen them up.

    I think you got more armour breaks overall, I just ended up causing more injuries.

    I'd suggest http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU9Uwhjlog8

    After a glorious from-behind victory over Pweasel's necromancers, I'm on the hunt for ADDITIONAL GAMEAGE also. The elves are at about 1400 TV now.

    I've applied with some humans I'm tentatively pondering using in the Open next season, can someone accept them when they've got a mo?
