Not to mention Brawler as an alternative to Block for big guys and maybe even for some players that already have Block for the safe re-rolls. However, I expect that on one hand the bash will change less than the passing game, just because separating passing and dodging has a more direct impact on the game. On the other hand, I imagine that these changes to moving the ball may impact where on the pitch the bash happens more than how the bash happens. I also expect that a bigger change to the bashing game will subtly come from the combination of random skills and the redrafting system. The random skill may temporarily keep TV low because of cycling (or people directly supported by Nuffle may dominate). It may also force having to learn to diversify your play style, which I think is unlikely to be popular: generally people tend to favor simpler strategies The redrafting system should limit high TV teams: with ~10 games starting from 1300TV, I don't imagine super-developed teams to be a regular thing. How long does it take to develop a legend level player? How many seasons will he have been redrafted by then? This will greatly reduce the effectiveness of teams like Chaos and Nurgle. It also probably means that you will likely have only a few highly developed players in a team: it's probably worth more to invest in a single level 5 player that took 4 seasons to get there, than 4 level 2 players that started last season. However, that means that you will have to keep investing in developing that player to avoid that sunk cost fallacy (did I say "avoid" there? ) All in all, I think that the bash side will be dominated by strong starting teams that already have all the skills they need, so go Dorfs I guess I also imagine that the tweaks to Claw and Piling On will make it less likely for players to be removed from the field. I hope this will lead to more games that are exciting until the end. However, I also imagine that this will increase the likelihood of ties between bashy teams and it will make agile teams relatively better at higher TV.
