I caved in and applied four TV 1000 teams to the Challenge league. The Crimson Carnival is back in action, this time with a slightly more standard set-up. Sorry Daave. Also bringing in the Anaheym Angels, my Warpfire Clawz and the Bluefin Brawlers and looking forward to some fine punching of creatures and men.

I'll be around tonight for a game or two, looking to get some experience (or just have a chuckle) with my TV1000-ish teams.

I'm around with some 1000 tv gobbos, or some 1800+ dark elves that i have sorely neglected recently...

Hey, not to muck up your thread, but I finally bought legendary edition over the weekend deal steam sale. I have a decent grasp of the rules, and am not unfamiliar with dice based games.
What steps do I need to complete to play a few games with you guys?

@Snoozer: Sorry man, I missed that message or I would've poked you on Steam earlier.
@Catguy: If you're just looking for friendly games, then apply to the RPS Challenge League in-game and one of the mods will let you in. The information's all in the first post of this thread. :)

Alright, I applied with my 1000 tv skaven elites, the Rotschild group.

So. Uhm. Just tried to launch a game with Screwie, noone accepted my teams yet to the league.
I'll go and cry a bit if no admin is alive. :(
12-10-2011, 09:52 PM #189
will go accept those teams for you right now

Team awaiting acceptance
I posted on the Division's of Death thread about joining that league and you told me to post here if I wanted a bash in the mean time.
I have a Dark Elf team called St Emo's Fire awaiting acceptance if I've done everything right. :S
Can you check for me?
I filled the sheet in as you said too.

hey there Rawwar, from what I can see from the spreadsheet the team you have added to the challenge league is the same you have down for the divisions of death, however you can only enter the divisions of death with a tv1000 team so you will probably need to make a new team for one of them

Bit late but anyone fancy a game (depending on whether an admin can approve my new application)?

Thanks for the heads up that was going to be one of the next things I was going to ask. Not a problem I'll run this one and see if I can get my head round Dark Elves and may try something else too.
I'd like a team that's reasonably good at playing the passing and the running game but isn't boring humans. I'm not a big fan of playing a Fantasy game and then being human but hey that's just me...
Feel free to offer up any suggestions I have played before but I'm very rusty and in the computer game I'm making some very obvious errors at the moment so any thoughts are welcome. Well it's obvious right after I made them. :P
I got a lot more tactical playing with my brother but that was over a year ago so...
Thanks in advance.

If you want to pass and/or run then you need high agility and high movement. Elves, basically. Wood elves are faster and more attuned to scoring but less good at defending, compared to dark elves. Skaven are also a possibility as they have a thrower and some enormously mobile, enormously agile gutter runners.

I have a TV 1000 Skaventeam in the league now finally thanks to Mr. Weasel Person, if you want to have some lessons in running and passing and dodging tonight. :D
14-10-2011, 12:19 PM #198
I will also be around tonight, for a game or two.

Dark Elves are slow, and they don't really get passing skills out of the box. They get 4 good solid blitzers though, and they get a couple of witch elves with frenzy. However they're not that great at the running game because they're not overly fast and they're not that great at passing because they don't have dedicated throwers or catchers. They#ll do all right at either of these things because they're elves, but to be honest they only really shine with a skilled coach with the patience and lack of attention span issues to marshal them properly on defence, i.e. not me.
If you want to pass, take high elves. Kings of the passing game and AV8. Still a bit slow, but a good team.
If you want to pass and run, take Skaven gutter runners and stormvermin (they come with a team of rat mooks too, but you don't need to care about them). Gutter runners are awesome and once you get block and sidestep on them they are surprisingly hard to kill. Nothing pulls off an end to end play quite like gutter runners firing on all cylinders. That said, they will inevitably die and it will make you sad.
You could also take "elves", generally referred to as Pro Elves. They're the kings of catching, they can pull off amazing plays, but they've got so little armour that you'll rarely field a full team. Skaven are 4 great players you save your apoc for, a couple of blitzers who can look after themselves, and a bunch of poor doomed redshirts you don't really give a crap about as they are cheap.
Pro Elves are a whole team full of expensive, fragile, career-ending-injuries-waiting-to-happen.
That said, humans are a bit meh. They're supposed to be a jack of all trades team, but the second half of the expression is "masters of none". If you want to play humans, get orcs instead. But I'd say try skaven and see what you think.

I refute your use of the word "slow"... Dark Elves are still elves, after all. :)
They may lack a bit in passing compared to their cousins, but the Dark Elf running game is the best elf running game.
Their improved armour over the Wood/Pro Elf sides and their greater access to Block out of the blocks (heh) than any other elf team makes them solid fighters. (And no ST2 slackers on their squad either.) A Dark Elf cage is the most durable, while still retaining that innate elfy slipperiness.
If I were to suggest an elf team to anyone, it would be the Dark ones. Wood and Pro Elves are too fragile, and High Elves are less versatile and need more specialised players to perform well. Meanwhile, you can ignore half the Dark Elf roster (especially the assassins) and make an extremely competitive team with linemen and blitzers alone. :)
(I'm sorely tempted to change my team to DE for the next DoD season now.)
