    Speaking as a Stunty coach, of course.
    I recall us discussing this event during a Challenge League match some while ago. I still think that Blitz! events are worse, at least the thrown rock only affects one target and it doesn't make any difference if the target's armor is 5 or if it is 10. Furthmore, Stunty teams often bring a deeper bench than other teams, so Stunties aren't even the juiciest targets.

    Pirate had a mixed bag of luck. There were two pitch invasions I think which I came of better than him due to the FAME advantage. There was a thrown rock to to one of his players but only a stun so nothing to write home about. He managed a defensive score against me and KO's three of my zombies and gave a -MV to a wight (regened too). So it wasn't like it was a white wash or anything. His major problem was risky play like needless dodges and 1D blocks which burned his re-rolls early. He was actually really lucky since his TD came from a blitz, pickup in 1TZ, 2 dodges (1 in 1TZ) and some GFIs. None of which failed. I was pretty frustrated myself then.

    Edit: I'll stick the game on BB manager so people can see if he had anything to complain about. I don't think he was Nuffled so much as played recklessly.

    There is a poor soul at bbtactics who has been playing wood elves in the OCC. He has been through the wars as of late and his squad for this weeks game had been reduced to 1 catcher. I shit you not. This was his report afterwards:

    Really not in the mood to carry on with this team. Lost 3-0 vs necro. Highlights include:

    -Catcher going off KO until the last turn with babes and 3 TDs scored leaving me with no tackle all game. (this being the only non loner on the team)

    -Frequent 2 dice blocks on the ball carrier coming up . One of these RRd to . He wasnt even protecting the ball. He kept giving me 2 and 3+ dice rolls to get 1 and 2 dice on the ball but none of it worked.

    -Recieving the ball to have a pitch invasion stun the whole team to end my turn. (8/9 players stunned)

    -Fumbling my one turn TD pass after getting 3 pushes for my catcher and still having a team RR.

    -Frequent turnovers from 1s.

    I probably shouldn't laugh. I did, though.

    I think the blitz is fine, actually. It encourages realistic offensive setups (ie not just sticking everyone on the LOS) and can be recovered from. The rock I don't like, and should be limited to KO at worst.

    EDIT - Or at least it should be a 2 on the kickoff table instead of a 3.

    I had a nasty nuffling in the Nagg Open the other night.

    My Vamps met a friendly Chaos Dwarf player and after a very promising start (killing a hobgoblin on the very first block of the game), nothing went right for me after - except biting my own thralls, which my vamps were really, REALLY good at. I had four players left at the start of the second half (2 each of vamps and thralls) and lost 3-0 in the end.

    Still I couldn't help but laugh and my opponent was a nice guy and complemented me on my silly team theme, which is all that matters. :)

    I would be happy with BH at worst (like Blood Lust) or the rock can only target specific players - like those on the wide zones or (more likely since they're mandatory) those on the LoS. I wouldn't mind swapping Throw a Rock (11) with Get the Ref (2), either. (3 is Riot.)

    I believe rock is essential to Bloodbowl, that you can die no matter you do. It's a lesson worth learning too, too many bloaty carebears.

    Well, President Weasel has obviously offended Nuffle somehow. Finished 3-0 to me, not through me playing well, but purely through Pres rolling badly. Like, really badly.

    Just got completely and utterly crushed by Boots's David Icke Experience in Division 2. At least only one of my players died, although Jim diGriz had been with the team since the beginning and will be sorely missed. Two more will have to be sacked due to niggle or -AV (I used up my apoc turning the minus armour into a dead, which I declined). The dice utterly fucked me, starting in turn 1 with Boots getting a blitz, and not letting up until the final turn.
    I utterly failed to break armour with my claw MB chaos warrior, rolling lower than 8 every time on two dice. My armour, on the other hand, broke nearly every time I was hit and any time I was stupid enough to try a dodge with an AG4 player or a go for it.

    Christ.

    Below is some proof.





    Unlike Pirate, I do not quit. I will return, stronger and meaner, annealed in the fires of Nuffle.

    The statistics for ball possession are particularly informative.

    You get an admin win, which gives you 2 random TD, 2 random MVP, and 2x winnings.

    I feel sympathy to those who take a truly disgusting nuffling but more than that, pride that so many here can laugh it off.

    After all, it is a game.

    I've had a curious sort of "luck" myself, my Elves are now 12 matches old and they are growing and expanding in repertoire without feeling "finished", I don't really fear for their deaths either as outside of a few doubles with guard I don't feel like anyone is irreplaceable.

    I genuinely look forward to rolling +ST on someone not just for the benefits associated but also so I can legitimately fear for their life.

    Block block block block block.
    I rolled 6+4 so it was either +move or strength skill. And even under those conditions, I'd say +move was the wrong choice.

    To be honest, I would say that your first mistake was to take a Deathroller into your roster in the first place. I would only ever induce that guy, he seems like such a pile of bloat.

    Fair enough, not being able to choose block is the only legitimate reason for not taking block on a Big Guy (or Big Freakish Cheaty Road Roller Thing).
