    Ogres I believe. 4 kills IS impressive, I got 3 on two occasions but never 4.

    The title of this thread is race selection so talking about my Ogre team that I'm currently thinking of bringing seems on topic to me. :p

    If you add me to your friends list by name "phunbaba" in game you should be able to double click my name and see all my teams and such. Scroll through and double click on it.

    Another thing you could do, now that I think of it, is check out my profile here check through my threads that I've started and check out the teams blog. Has not been updated in a while as I haven't played them in a while but it's there.

    Also they lose a lot. Like that game where I flat out killed 4 players for instance. Think that was one of my better showing at 1-2. Ogres are fun but best at low tv I think. Don't think I won a game in CCXI

    Dwarfs are boring to play against as every game against them plays out the same way. I hate coaching dwarfs because they are slow, mostly agi2 and str3 across the board.

    I would rather coach norse/amazon any day of the week...load up with lots of linemen and foul foul foul! :D

    Elves are boring to play against as every game against them plays out the same way. I hate coaching Elves because they are lightly armored, have no ST access, and are ST3 across the board.

    :p

    Also hate you too!

    Dwarfs are [interesting] to play against as [your mistakes will get punished. However, if you play well it's hard to lose to dwarfs]. I [love] coaching dwarfs because they are slow, mostly agi2 and str3 across the board [which means that against a good coach you need to be creative to get a win].

    How the hell did a good old-fashioned Dwarf hate-fest turn into a mad-libs session?

    Dwarfs are [drunk] to play against as [I jumped over the fjord on my way to a pimps house]. I [mostly hate] coaching dwarfs because they are slow, mostly agi2 and str3 across the board [because two souffles are worth more than dwarven armour]

    I don't like these MadLibs

    almost as much as I don't like dwarves

    Let the hate flow through you!

    This thread is feeding my desire to play Dwarfs.

    I actually like playing dwarves, as there's an odd feeling of playing chess with them. Everything you do has a predictable result, but your trash speed means that you need to be highly strategic with them to maximise results. As for playing against dwarves... well, I still hate Khemri more. Khemri are the only team I genuinely hate playing against.

    I have to play Khemri with my Norse in MD2 of the DemoBowl. Not looking forward to it, even if I do have the block advantage and his team lacks Sure Hands.

    Did he start without Thro-Ras? In that case he's either a complete rookie, or he knows very well what he is doing ;)

    LRB 6 Khemri are better than facing LRB 5 khemri, even though I think it was a major nerfbat to the team. LRB 5 Khemri didnt have tomb guardians, they had 4 mummies instead...

    I'm scared that it might be the latter.

    Phunbabas dwarfs play differently to 99% of the other the teams though!


    my best win percentage for a team is on Nurgle of all teams, the only issue I have with nurgle is that you have very limited options!

    The more I look into it, the more Chaos Dwarfs are growing on me. I'm finding myself a bit more torn than I was initially. The added mobility plus the possibility of mutations is tempting. I do have to put up with a bit of AV 7, but damn...

    They're both still Dwarf teams. Thematically I like the Dwarfs, but on paper I'm leaning towards Chaos Dwarfs.
