Well my season got off to a spectacularly bad start. Dark Pansy followed by two helpings of rat is about as bad a division as a ‘fling team can face so you really don’t need Nuffle screwing you too. Sadly she did, with not one, not two but three blitzes granted to the Dark Elves including the key one to open the match. Each blitz on the blitz also caused a CAS magnifying the effect even more. A double dodge failure CAS meant I was down to nine players before Mutiliation’s first turn and as I had been trapped with a number of ‘flings yet to dodge out I was down to seven on the pitch and 11 at best for the rest of the match by the end of the opening turn .
I did cause some damage of my own and may have even got back into the match but the second half was a six aside match so the two further blitzes left me with no possible response. Even worse I’ve really hurt my chances of avoiding relegation by denying Mutilation their Blackle blitzer and their kicker for the game against Zeno’s rats. I need Zeno to lose that one so double grr.
Nuffle had one final kick in the teeth for me; I levelled a ‘fling and a Tree and rolled +AG and a double. Nuffle displayed her evil sense of humour by giving the double to the ‘fling and the agility to the Tree... so annoyingly close to the magic of a block Tree and AG4 ‘fling.
The one minor positive was I did at least score, becoming the first team to achieve that feat against Mutilation, but it barely counts as consolation in a 4-1 defeat.
