    Actually, those are perfectly valid choices. He's right.
    Frenzy should work well with your rat ogre and give you the possibility of four-square crowdsurfing, while stand firm synergises nicely with guard, since your opponent can't simply shunt your guard player away and remove the effect.

    I'd still go piling on though.

    Oh strip ball and frenzy could be good choices. I dont have a rat ogre at the moment, he never performed for me then died so i never bought a new one. I should get another one really, he was a good distraction for people to hit. I'm not a big fan of piling on in a skaven team since they have hardly any strength access i need him to be standing up to give me guarding help.

    I think with that particular stormvermin, such a valuable piece, you want to control where he ends up. Frenzy is great, but it could get him into trouble. I'd go for piling on too.

    That said, stand firm is one of those skills which I'm aware that I consistently undervalue. Maybe on a skaven team the 'vermin are the only piece reliable enough to be a roadblock?

    Skaven, more than many other teams, perform massively better when outnumbering the enemy (and worse when outnumbered, although if you can keep a couple of GR's alive and on the pitch there's always the chance of sneaking a touchdown).
    I'd recommend making killer stormvermin and taking the rat ogre too.

    Str4 +Frenzy + naturally high skaven movement means your opponent will start to avoid the sidelines, which gives your Gunners more scampering room.
    Mighty Blow and Piling On will allow you to maim opponents into the casualty box, giving your gutter runners more scampering room and allowing your other players to start double teaming the remaining enemy players.

    It depends on two things - what you currently use him for and whether you intend on g

    It depends on what you currently use him for. If you blitz with him regularly and dont intend on getting the ogre get frenzy. If he's blocking more than blitzing I'd leave frenzy as its easy for your opponent to pull him away from the play as often you aren't picking where the opponent you are hitting is in relation to the ball. If you're blocking i'd prefer either stand firm, piling on or an off the wall suggestion - break tackle? Makes him a more mobile guard piece?

    Break tackle to get that guard where you want it.

    Edit: Damn :)

    Yep, I found the post from him confirming that.
    Currently you have 6 points and Lowkey has 3. You beat Lowkey in your match, so you're guaranteed promotion no matter what happens with the Lowkey/Graever match up, so I shall admin your match to 0-0 to match Graever's.


    Looks like Lowkey and Graever are trying to have their match this evening, according to the Div H group thread thinger. Good work, Div H.

    I want to put my team on a hiatus for a season or two. What's the protocol for that?

    I dont even know what to do with this damn stormvermin. He rolled a 10, but with a 6 and 4. So i can go a normal skill for him OR +AV or +MV.

    Here are the outstanding matches by Division:

    Div Champs: Laneford vs Chainsawhands - scheduled for this evening

    Div 2: Somanyrobots vs Grinn: they tried to have their match ages ago but Grinn didn't show up (possibly confusion due to time zones. Then 'robots was away for a while; the last post I see says something along the lines of "totally free the week after (i.e. this week) so we can try to get an extension or just take the default". Let us know if you need that extension, fellas. You've got until Tuesday no problem, since Groovy is playing then, and we can probably squeeze Weds in too and maybe even Thurs?

    Div A: Alini vs the Brain: scheduled for this evening. Good work, Div A

    Div C: Dave vs Screwie: looks like Dave missed a couple of scheduled attempts to play this one, and now they're out of time. They can't do Monday or Tuesday - I am tempted to give the win to Screwie unless they can maybe sort something out for Weds or Thurs?

    Div D: AgP vs Kajo is scheduled for today, and Groovy's match is scheduled for tomorrow. Since Groovy is the God King of Admins, I am pretty sure he can have an extension until then :)

    Div E: Dentharial vs Karandaz: Looks like they're hoping for an extension til Thursday. I shall refer this one to the Admin Committee.

    Div F: chadsexington vs wink5000: looks like they tried to have the match yesterday but couldn't find each other on the Steams. Let us know if you're going to try again before Thursday?

    Div G: Dog Pants vs Zenohero: scheduled for this evening. Good work, Div G.

    Div H: Graever vs Lowkey: scheduled for this evening.

    Div K: mrJoose vs ntw: Looks like an admin draw unless ntw gets back in time to get the game in before Thurs.

    Div L: dissident vs Drawlien: Drawlien has posted in the thread to try to organise the match, dissident hasn't (and the indications are they haven't been in touch in Steam or whatever) so unless dissident asks for an extension I'll give an admin win to Drawlien when I do the rest of them (which looks like being Thursday).


    So, unless there are any objections from Groovy, let's set Thursday as the absolute drop-dead-line to get your games in or else have them admin-resulted to whatever seems best.

    Alini and I might need to put our teams into hibernation for a season or two as well - we'll be away (on honeymoon! In Japan! Where Blood Bowl will be quite inconvenient, so I'm not sure it was such a great idea!) from 11th November to 2nd December, so taking part in the next season will depend on how quickly the changeover's worked through.

    Forget all the other shit, give him +AG, and make him a terrifyingly effective receiving threat in the backfield. Anyone who tries to mark him gets a mighty blow punch in the face while you throw to a gutter runner instead, and if they leave him un- or lightly-marked you can ag4 dodge away, str4 mighty blow blitz whoever is trying to mark your gunner, and then throw the ball to the gunner over the twitching body of the marker.

    That's my advice, anyway. Also, can I have your team?

    This is possibly the worst advice ever.

    Also he didn't even roll the option, so it's bad advice he can't even take :)

    Oh, if he'd actually rolled the +AG he should totally take it, it's just... well, you figured it out. ;-)
