    There's this LRB5 with some experimental rules, which has the experimental rules printed in red. I think the CRP has all of these changes plus a few extra, so maybe that'll help a little.

    The sheet should be functional now, it'll need neatening up when I get a chance though...

    True! It's just that Yhetees and Minotaurs are less useful in the scrum because of their low armour and capacity to be pulled out of position via frenzy.

    The best big guy I think is the Troll - dirt cheap, you don't pay for anything you don't need, and you can just park him in the middle of the pitch and hinge your drive around him.

    I think the Kroxigor is the best big guy, bonehead is arguably the least disruptive big guy nega trait, it's better than the human ogre which comes at the same price for some reason, he's the fastest big guy with the rat ogre so he can keep up with the rest of the team and with break tackle as first skill he becomes really annoying.

    I think price does come into it.

    The troll is a bargain for its 110k cost, but the rat-ogre seems a bit overpriced at the same price as the minotaur to me. Okay, so the minotaur is also expensive at 150k, but I know with him I'm getting skills that work well in synergy and a big guy who I can give Mutations to without costing him Block/Pro/+ST.

    The krox is basically like a troll but better, and without the TTM tactics. But you are paying extra for the improvement.

    As others have mentioned that's how the Halflings used to be and it was horrible.

    Interestingly (well, I find it interesting), the collected testing data for LRB5/LRB6 shows that the Loner change jumped the team from below Tier 3 expectations (~19% win rate) to arguably the best performing Tier 3 team (~37%).

    It's the horns, they addict to the idea of a 1 assist triple roll. But they are not to be trusted, treat them like a beast of Nurgle that's better.

    This is why our group's minotaur debates always break down. There are two schools of thought for the minotaur:
    • The safer big guy obstacle typically with Block, Tents and Stand Firm (and Claw).
    • The riskier blitz monster typically with Pro (or Block) and Juggernaut (and Claw).

    And people won't budge either way. :)

    Yes, I can see it was the worst by far. And now it's pretty much aligned with the rest... of the bottom. Which is good enough for me :)

    Right - Everyone is in a tier for next season! I may/may not have already got it wrong, but it looks... okay to me :-). Live draw for divisions will be at 7PM sharp tonight, turn up to the RPS Bloodbowl Group Chat to find out who you'll be playing next season in your division! Applications to the divisions in-game will commence after the draw.

    Groovy, what order will you be drawing the tiers in? I may end up missing the start due to work blah.

    Incidentally I had a look at my team last evening and it didn't look like the game between me and Phil had been admined yet.

    I think I am bit confused. My team played in Div8 last season, I came in as 2nd, so would have changed into DivH (is this even correct thinking?). Now, on the sheet I am not in DivH - so my question is:

    Where the pro- & demotions done before the change to the new system, or are they calculated after the change?

    Hi Squirrel, they were done before, then you were pushed into a tier. Bearing in mind we had 4 reboots and a similar number of dropouts, you're probably higher again than you expect, although at least this gets absorbed a bit by the broader tiers now. Does that help explain things?

    You reserve the right to not believe me, but I honestly had no idea about those statistics before my Necro fixation set in, I'd also swap out for Lizardmen in a heartbeat, statistics be damned.

    Tier 1 looks exciting, hope I don't have to play boots again, was too much work running from his lizards :-)

    Damn, and grinn is there too, another player I want to avoid. I suspect his orcs are just as aimed at hurting things here as in the open.
