But Halflings? The have stunty and dodge, this makes them hard to block or even blitz with my skill less MV4 linemen. (1 in 6 block dice are useful)
Wheras fouling is super likely to go my way with as little as 2 assists.
Let me put it plainly from my internal philosophy.
I can't in good conscious tell my opponents not to foul me. Where does that leave me?

I actually rarely foul, but it's not because I think it's wrong, it's just that there's almost always something better I could be doing.

That doesn't square with the idea that you use it to get even with higher tier teams though. Everyone's going to bag on Halflings anyway, why hit one of the few skill-upped players they do have for no in-match benefit and no league benefit (seeing as Halflings are almost certainly not going to win the division)? I'm not having a go, I'm genuinely interested in your reasoning, but I'm not sure I believe
I find the arrogance of players who demand the right to use crap with immense strengths against me and then sulk because I try to damage it. Of course I am damaging it, to teach you what happens when you step crap like that onto the pitch.

In short, I stopped taking blodge, on my 4 blodge capable players (without doubles) because of fouling opponents.
My only precious players in the whole team. I'm actually the victim here! [/emotional music]
Now I am going to be DElf mainly because of unanimous blodge access and 6 players are half way there, 4 of those have AV8 (I'd go Amazon but I have a phobia of being set against dwarves and never recovering) I truely expect my blodgers to get fouled, but I am going to have means to mitigate its devastation.
I have spared opponents who I feel offer no threat to my promotion, but not always. Sometimes they run their standing players to the corners of the pitch, or refuse to get up... What exactly am I meant to do with that?

We are talking mighty blow triple dice blitzes turning into triple pushes, that game changed me.

In my last game against Screwie, i fouled his ag5 NoS elf because i could get a tactical advantage from that;
Then i got a chance to gang foul someone on T16, and i did not use that chance, even if I got to use my Necromancer..
I'm generally uneasy when it comes down to stomp an already stomped down foe
And i see now the changes of the league: me sad :(
I've got 4 promotions in a row and can get the 5th (tough that's unlikely), you can't change the league now :( :P

Hutton's post about the projection of power is appreciated. :)

With my goblin teams I almost never foul. With all the abuse they take, typically I just can't afford to have another little guy leave the pitch if I roll the dreaded double. Even the looney is better served knocking people down than gang fouling. Oh, one exception - I use the bombardier to foul. All the time too, unless he has a more important target still on their feet.
As for Turn 16 moves, it really depends on the league.
If it was an open-ended league like the Challenge League, I would think it's seriously bad form. That place is friendly, context-free and purely developmental. But I have come to recognise the tactical importance when league results have context, even if I don't especially like it and don't take advantage of it myself.
I'll probably still complain when it happens, but if you're allowed to foul on Turn 16 then I'm allowed to hate you for it. (That's my retaliation in Turn 17.) :P
Runners and assassins are much better targets, really. Same AV, no Dodge, and no Jump Up so they're easier to slow down. But people just seem to fear the witch elf. :)

Ah, the fouling debate. I don't tend to foul because it tends to destroy my position. But it's in the rules so I can't demand somebody not foul me, alas. Jacobi seems to get gangfouled at the end of every RPS Open game anyway.

I havn't been able to get much time this week, so it's a default for me. I'm going to be busy alot so I'll be dropping out of the league untill this so called summer is over.

Turn 16 fouls just seem lame. Doing it during the game when it can actually make a difference is fine, not that i would enjoy it but i get it. But Turn 16 fouling a player even though, in the dod, especially you arent likely to meet the team again soon just seems spiteful.
But then the argument just comes down to, "Hey thats not cool dude" and "Someone did it to me so i can do it to anyone."

I need to add that a furious foul rampage actually won me a game this season. My bastardry caused a coach to quit out.
I won in 3 turns by being a monster. I felt quite vindicated. Remember this if you are ever getting fouled onto ash.
You are allowed to conceed.
