Discussion in 'Blood Bowl 2' started by St Cloud, Feb 1, 2017.
I am curious if I can buy the admin improvements separately , but it seems unlikely.
I'll get it anyway it's just I'm playing or have played recently my 3 favourite teams from LE (Ogre, Underworld and the only acceptable Elves) so I'm in no rush and money tends to be tight round the school holidays.
Oh the pain of living in a very active local BB community.
So we know Underworld are included, which messes with my plans to go Nurgle when I ultimately move over to BB2.
Do we know if Underworld gets their fricken star players? Skitter Stab-Stab, Nobbla Blackwort, and the rest?
all stars are in I believe.
CJ, which Elves are the only acceptable ones?
Pro Elves, as they're the only elves coming out with LE.
Pro Elves are the coolest, that's certainly true.
They said they are aiming for 50 stars. We have 36 in at the moment and 20 missing...soooo....
These stars are not in game yet
Fungus the Loon
Hthark the Unstoppable
Zara the Slayer
Some of those listed starplayers are sort of a "must have" for certain teams - Like Deeproot Strongbranch for the Halflings, for example. Hard to say which ones they might cut - I believe they mentioned that the Chainsaw ones would be included for certain. Perhaps they'll actually add all of them in the end - That would be the best possible scenario, and what I am hoping for!
Of those the ones I wouldn't miss are Sinnedbad and Rashnak and Crazy Igor (I really hate stab) the others are all cool though, hope we get them all. If I had to pick 3 more to lose - Humerus, Boomer and Scrappa.
I wouldn't want to lose Igor as he's the only player you can get that Vampires can eat. And he's got the skills to make himself a good snack (thick skull and regen). I haven't played a lot of Vampires yet, but I can imagine having a durable thrall would be quite useful for Bloodlusting Vamps to take a bit out of.
Yes, I feel like he's hugely important to Vampires. Especially for newer teams who are playing against teams of higher TV, who cannot afford to have extra Thralls on the bench and who needs every single vampire out there on the pitch at all times. I hope he makes the cut because I was thinking I might switch to the blood-drinkers myself.
The expendable stars are for the most part already in the game. No one ever uses – theme, messing about or learning aside – the likes of Dolfar, Headsplitter and Icepelt. Of the remaining players only Rashnak is a never see, although Sinnedbad is a very rare take.
The interesting question for me is what happens with star roster for Kislev and rounding out the brets. There have been two extra Bret stars named in the game files since release and it has always been assumed they would be a chainsaw and maybe a ball and chain or bomber. Will those stars still be made and take two of the slots? Likewise will Kislev keep the slann and lizard star players just with a reskin... seems unlikely if they do change the Krox skills.
Igor is ok but loner thrall will do the same job just fine 9/10. Regen is only 50/50 and does nothing to keep him on for that drive. Hugely important is overstating it.
Okay, maybe it's a bit of an overstatement; but Loner Thrall is 70k I think, and Crazy Igor is 120k. For that 50k extra you get +1 AV, Dauntless, Regeneration and Thick Skull. Definitely worth the extra cash. Plus the fact that he's cheap means you can induce him quite regularly. I know that when I played Vamps back in BB1 when I was new to the game, I thought he was great. Though I have learned a lot since then (and still learning new things each day!) so maybe I'd feel differently now. I'd have to try it out in-game to know for certain.
He's not terrible, but the dauntless you don't need (you have vamps) and the AV8 doesn't protect him from being bitten. Thick skull and regen do though and they're nice.
So Blood Bowl 2 is on Sale... buy it or not? Wait for Legendary?
It's going to be many months for Legendary, so it's a question of whether you want to wait that long or not.
Buy it now and the upgrade to legendary will be heavily discounted. And also join BC 2 and prepare to get your arse kicked.
