Underworld is the only correct answer always.

Chaos is a poor choice for a new player - no starting skills at all and a bunch of players who initially start off identical, giving you no real clue what they're supposed to be doing on the pitch, and then have a confusing plethora of development options.
Admittedly some of the "clues" like the orcs having a player who is theoretically a "thrower" are red herrings, as he should more properly be described as a "pick the ball up and then keep it guy".
Orcs are often suggested as an ideal team for new players, but high elfs are also a good choice. A completely different play style, but one it is easy to comprehend (keep the ball safe with a thrower in your half, get a receiver relatively free at the other end, pass the ball, touchdown!). Also the players aren't terrifyingly fragile, like the pro elfs and flower elfs, nor are they universally slow like the amazons.

As a fond player of tabletop game many, many years ago I've been working through the AI opponents on the BB:Legendary Edition.
I think I've grasped the basics and want to get involved in the league! (to no doubt be humbled).
I'll add my details to the table - do I need to buy the Chaos edition to participate or is the LE one OK?

in the meantime, you can stick a team or two in the challenge league to get some practice against humans.

I want to suggest Pro Elves(aka regular Elves), yes they are fragile but they have some of the best players going with their blitzers and catchers and an AG4 player for 60TV is not bad at all.
Some players will be horribly maimed, but that's bloodbowl.

Yes, go to the leagues tab and search for rps. Also take a look at these threads and the first post in this thread.

No need to even type anything in; it is about halfway down the front page on the league finder as it now lists the leagues in order of total number of teams by default.

I wouldn't ever pick a ball handling skill (except maybe SH) on any player, it just makes it frustrating when you repeatedly fail things like pickups or handoffs. I blame AG3 more than the lack of skills.
Regarding wolves having blodgestep, tackle, dauntless/shadowing/etc isn't bad, but doesn't really do as much as I'd like a ~250TV player to do. I think they really need a stat or MB to be worth the huge cost. However, once they get that developed it isn't really practical to cut them as they're doing most of your heavy lifting (blitzing, marking, ball hunting, scoring threat, etc). So I'd recommend cutting them mid-development if you don't get anything juicy to save some plain later on.

Course, Claw are a rag-bag of limping cripples while Clone High are a gleaming parade of doubles and stats, my advice doesn't lead to happy teams.

I think you can argue both ways for kick zombie vs ghoul. I prefer the ghoul, but necro definitely have the speed to take advantage of kick (if not the agi).
I agree that wolves go from crap to awesome once they get their 2nd or 3rd skill, but if you cut them while you're still facing opponents who are developing it's much easier than trying to level them against fully skilled opponents. And I've always had at least 1-2 key players who have been in desperate need for a skill. After this most recent match is the first time all my positionals have had at least 1 skill in many seasons. Really, you should just get lucky the first time you're leveling so you avoid this mess. Also don't have anyone die/retire.
Learning to protect your ghouls is an important skill. AV7, no regen, and no apo means they will die a lot, but if you're careful about positioning and how you use them they'll live a bit longer. Learning to recognize when you need to just throw them into things and hope for the best instead of protecting them is another important skill.

Street Sweeping Scrubs [Delusibeta] 0 - 2 Gentlebeasts [mrpier]
Ho hum. Another decidedly mediocre game by the Scrubs, and another occasion where I was out-bashed.
Frankly, if next season I fail to score, I'm going to reboot. Progress has been slow and success has been non-existant. All in all, I'm dissatisfied with my team.

Sorry to hear it's been rough, which races were you two?

Blackest of Black Blacks 1 - 0 Track & Field
The score is a little deceiving as this was incredibly one-sided, mainly because my dice were ridiculously good and Jiiiiim's were ...not. I broke armour with 25 of 33 rolls, injuring 5 players and KOing almost every other player. He, on the other hand, failed dodges consistently and turned over on 10% of his blocks. On the final turn, he had 1 player left on the pitch, and she was stunned.
Still - WOOO! I didn't finish last!

Codsbottom Brawlers (Graever) 3 - 0 Goes Well With Port (Alini)
So my foray into being a Skaven coach has not gone well this first season with three losses, down two lineman and now the Rat Ogre getting - Str. I still need time to learn to play Skaven so not ready to give up trying just yet, however with only one level up (Stormvermin), not many SPP overall and 70k in the treasury, should I just start a new team?
21-02-2013, 10:45 PM #859
I would, if you don't have many SPPs and your team is crippled you have nothing to lose by restarting.
