    A rough guideline based on personal experience/observation. With 2 babes and a bench four deep, he will need to inflict 5 actual CAS before you start lining up down players, which significantly dampens his bash advantage and makes it less likely that your valuable core players will need to be exposed right away.

    In 6D, my Vamps finally faced another newbie team, DE +100k TV to me. So I picked up Babes, hoping that for once, that wouldn't mean the injury roll just jumps over KOs and into CASes.

    After half my team was in the CAS box, I won 3-0. Got tiny winnings, but it's enough to finally replace the Vamp that died on MD1. But I'm not getting past 11 players this season.

    MD 3 v Zulu's Khemri

    The first half kicks off, and it doesn't take long for my players start leaving the pitch in droves. It gets to the stage where I move out of the way of his cage and try to hit back where I can. I knock out one Tomb Guardian and injure another, who regens. He is pretty well caged up on turn 7 until he moves a skeleton to foul on my might blow wolf results in a sending off. My agile wolf has a pretty easy route to blitz the ball carrier, a Str 4 Throw rah. It'll be 2d against but I had a reroll, so I had around a 20% chance to take him down, I think. It paid off and the ball was knocked off the pitch. It's picked up and thrown successfully, but a Tomb guardian fumbles the catch, making it 0-0 at of the first half.

    All important players recover from being knocked out at half time.

    The second half starts with a blitz. A Tomb guardian hits a flesh Golem but doesn't take him down, he engages on the LOS, and spreads his players out more on the right (where the ball will land). I then have a very good turn, taking a few of his players off the pitch and move the ball to the left, well guarded with a numbers advantage.

    I then have a bad turn, due almost entirely to bad coaching. Instead of making sure the ball carrier is well protected, and moved up the field, I see that by moving the guard ghoul into the scrum on the right, I can get 2d blocks for my Wight and killer Wolf. Greedy for more blood after my last turn, I do this, and just roll pushes. I try and dodge away with the wolf and fail. This lets Zulu get a Tomb guardian free, threatening to agile ball carrying Wolf. I don 't have enough players not tied up to screen effectively, so I make a break for it. The Wolf scampers away, out of reach of the TG, close to the Str 4 Throw Rah, who I mark with a Wight. If I can just get my ghoul up there too, it would be pretty hard for the throw rah to do anything, even if he manages to dodge away. My ghoul fails his dodge, the throw rah doesn't, with the use of a reroll, takes out the wolf, and picks up the ball.

    There is then a scrum for a few turns, the ball being picked up, knocked free a bit, without anyone able to protect it. After a bit of luck, on 15 I knock the ball free somewhere where my AG+ sure hands wolf can get to it safely, in comfortable range to score next turn. Double ones.

    Zulu gets a stand firm blitz rah next to the ball. Two blocks fail to take him down. The wolf can score but it needs a 3+ pick up in a tackle zone, a 3+ dodge, a 2+ dodge and two go for it's. Which he makes, giving me a 1-0 win in a game where a draw would have been the fairer result.

    Next up, Orcs with lots of Mighty Blow

    Md4 I get a 0-0 tie with the other Orc team in my division putting me at 2-1-1 on the season. I had a wizard and it helped me stop his drive in the 1st half. Couldn't score in the 2nd half though as I just couldn't remove anyone from the pitch to open things up until T16 when it was too late. Had a desperation attempt at scoring but failed the 2nd GFI to get my receiver into the end zone to receive a pass. I'm still tied for second in the division and have the TD differential tie breaker. Skilled up a blitzer to L3 and a BoB to L3 taking piling on and guard respectively.

    Next up the 1740 TV undefeated 1st place Norse. I'll be at 1270 TV and with 470k inducements I'm thinking wizard, bribe, apo, and 2 babes. Another option could be Ripper, wizard, and a babe. The Norse have 3 MB and 3 guard with one of their zerkers also having PO. Both runners are going to be a pain to take down; one is dodge, fend, sidestep while the other is dodge, fend, +1 agi, and surehands. He also has an L4 Yhetee with MB, guard, and break tackle.

    I have no tackle and he's got 3 dodge players I think. Could be a problem. Maybe I should have taken tackle instead of piling on with the blitzer but it's too late now to change. I think I'll just have to hope the wizard works and hopefully kills the +1 agi L5 blodge Norse runner.

    My team is weird. 4 games in and completely healthy with 12 players and the troll but despite getting 57 SPP I've only got 3 skilled players who've gained 49 of my total SPP. Block/guard BoB who leads the team with 18 SPP, MB/PO blitzer, and a Block thrower who's at 15 SPP.

    Gz on the win.

    I have not had 11 players since about MD3 of Season 21.

    Well could go to 12 now, but going to stick on 10 for a bit longer.

    MD 4 against Christ0403's Orcs

    I win the toss and chose to receive. The Orcs have their armour, but not their helmets, and before long four of them are knocked out. A troll is also killed, and saved by the app.

    A black Orc dodges to try and get to mark the ball carrier, but fails. I set up camp, the fighting carries on, and my MB wolf, and a Golem join the knocked out. But as the first half ends, everyone is available for the second half apart from a knocked out zombie, and a sent off line orc.

    The second half doesn't start so well.

    He has several good blitzers. One killer one with piling in etc, thst the mb wolf got injured dodging away from. Another with MA+ and mighty blow, and another with AG-, tackle, mighty blow and catch. I liked this one the best. Combined with an AG+, accurate, block, safe throw thower, as was hopeful of seeing some Orc passing action.

    I wasn't disappointed. After applying a little pressure on the thrower, a pass to the MA+ blitzer was not caught. A little blitzing and my AG + Wolf had the ball. But was soon dispossessed, and a rookie Orc blitzer, who had moved to give the assist, caught it. A successful dodge from a Wight was enough to get the wolf a 2d hit on the blitzer. A push led to a single die defender down, and the wolf scampered off with the ball, to score a turn later. A few turns , another failed pass, some blitzing and a wizard later and it finished 3-0.

    Next I have Bantha's Vampires, almost 500 tv ahead of me, and with twice the spp, to look forward to.

    A draw snatched from the jaws of victory.

    Some unfortunate dice rolls for Kanped meant I went in 1 nil up at half time following a T8 defensive TD, with me to recieve the ball next half. Two god-awful missclicks left me horrendously exposed however, allowing Kanped to get the ball and equalise. 1-1 draw with one of my Slayers escaping death thanks to the handy action of the apo.

    Should be 2 level ups - 1 blitzer, one slayer. Still no level ups on my linos,

    That's not his best, Everblue managed a 7-0 last season IIRC. I also take my hat off to him.

    If it helps it was Wood Elves vs Ogres. So one of those matchups you can see going that way. Just takes a couple failed pickups and it's a landslide.

    Not me - it was Antonlunau against Hobnail, season 18 (ish). I beat Anton 4-0 in the same season, which means, technically, that I beat Hobnail 11-0.

    The FUMBBL record is 12-11 between two teams of 1 turning wood elves.

    My first season in the OCC is a bit of a non starter. Because of some technical problems with Tier7 i can play my games but after validations my opponent gets all the regular spp, gold, niggles... And my Team stays the same as it was before the game. So no team development for me. :(

    The admins have apparently figured something out to give me my earnings and SPP at the end of the season. Not quite how i imagined the season goining though.

    Pit Machine grab a win vs Jav's Undead Quiet 2-0. Following a draw vs Tubragg's 'Imaginary Friend' Necros 1-1 and a win against Loophole's 'The Last Laughs' 3-0 we sit 3-1-1 in 2nd on TD difference after the 'Undead Stretch' of the season. Up next are Gusya's guard heavy Khorne team 'The Neomarxism' in what will be an interesting match up. Strength 4 slayer leveled to hit level 3, my MB level 2 blocker got 1 BH and a regenerated kill to put him on 11spp. Not getting excited just yet. Still to come are Reverendo's High Elves, Tiggas Lizards and Jakerbeefs Nurgle.
