    Macavity is gonna have fun this season - in Tier 5 with only three other teams, all of which are non-bashy, and he went with Chaos. Splattered elf, anyone?

    @GC - I'd ditch the ogre and I think that the catchers are the best players on the human team. MV8 is fantastic and you can build them to be super annoying/useful. Agi has all the annoying skills like side step, DT, shadowing (good with MV8). Get a couple with DT and your elf problems will get a lot more manageable.

    You also don't have to Pass to them, catch works on handoffs too and with AG 3 on the throwers is a bit more reliable.


    @Everblue - All my replays from the DoD are up on BBmanager. Also this thread has tons of match reports, but sorting through 300+ pages is a bit daunting. Also as you've noticed pretty much everyone is more than happy to talk (at length) about their team or their view on how to develop X team or Y player.

    I've got a good thrower already (accurate + strong arm), which helps - and there's not much you can do to a human catcher to make them better at catching, really, unless you go for NoS or diving catch (or roll +ag!). Diving tackle/tackle would be lovely for some anti-elf abilities, as would shadowing (although DT + shadowing aren't a good combination as you have to choose one?). I've also got some good pass block/diving tackle plans to mark up receivers in the backfield which would be annoying. I've basically been waiting for some SPPs on my catchers for 2 seasons now, but to no avail, so I'm refocussing the team on the catchers to try and get some development going again.

    Shadowing is General though.

    Now we’ve got our own section in the forum we really should start race specific threads for these discussions. There is a lot of good advice buried in this thread with no hope of ever being found by a coach in need. Race specific tactics/build threads wouldn’t be all that busy so wouldn’t swamp the active threads page but neither would they be lost with the limited number of active threads in the BB section.

    You do have to choose one but i'm pretty sure you get to choose every time you do the shadowing. So you could follow for a square or two then do diving tackle. But yea they are good together really.

    I'll have to rename them as 'Khornes Killers' is taken... but the team motto is 'Blood for the Blood God!'

    I though people might like to know - Cyanide are looking for testers of a new beta patch which hopes to fix the synch errors. Instructions on how to get the beta build are given beyond the link.

    Note that only players with the Steam version of the game can participate, and updating will mean you can only play against players who are also in the beta.

    However... progress! Maybe!

    Derp, yes, shadowing is general. But still players with GA access are the most annoying (blodge, SS, shadowing, DT, tackle = horrible).

    Anyway, as Gorm mentioned shadowing and DT go well together. You get to choose what to use so you can see if DT make them fall over. If it won't then do shadowing and you might get another chance to apply DT.

    That's already the motto of my challenge league Lizard team, Sporting Lizbon:
    Blood for the Blood God! (By which we mean Kukulcan the Serpent God)

    On the plus side, I deleted "Just one Khornetto" a while ago, so that name might be available.

    I will also note that strategic use of spaces can steal you a name that is otherwise taken. Just obviously be sure that the original holder of the name isn't also in the Divisions, or that could get confusing.

    In my first trial online game with my *other* chaos team my minotaur died on turn *one* tripping over on a GFI roll, and the apothecary roll came up as dead... I started the match with a team value of 1000 and finished it with a team value of 720. Nuffle loves me.

    Considering the complete absence of starting skills on chaos I wouldnt start with the mino - your team will be unreliable enough as it is. 4 warriors is plenty of meat plus a st4 blitz anywhere on the pitch with the beasties. Squeeze in as many rerolls as possible to help lessen the turnover pain.

    Minotaurs are a way to spend your own gold to cause turnovers on your own team; why not just save the money and roll a dice every turn, and throw the ball out of bounds if it comes up 1?
