Just recently, my league decided to start a free-for-all league, basically a place where you can play around and play in an eternal pre-season environemnt, and get some skill rolls on your players before you promote the team and enter it into the regular league. I've been meaning to try out Slann for quite some time, and the FFA league seemed like the prefect place. I immediately entered the following starting line-up for the league: 2 Blitzers 220 2 Catchers 160 7 Linefrogs 420 4 Re-rolls 200 A cool million. Played the team's first game and it was quite hectic. I managed to win FAMEx2 against the rookie Nurgle squad I faced, and that was really helpful, since my team went through re-rolls like none other - I rolled no less than three (!) within the first four turns. I managed a 1-1 draw in the end, and won 50k, which obviously meant that I now have an Apothecary in the squad as well. No skill-rolls, but one Catcher is on 4 and a Blitzer got the MVP, so hopefully I'll be able to throw a quick 3+ pass with him next game for a level. The question is: what is my next purchase? I really love the Kroxigor, I'd like to add one as soon as possible to the squad, but I also want to add the last two Blitzers. Should I get the Krox before that? At what point do I buy a fifth re-roll (if ever)? Should I add more Catchers? AG4 is great, especially with Leap and VLL, but S2 is less awesome. I plan to level my players in this manner, with the skills in the order that they will be picked: Two of the Blitzers will be markers, with Block, Dodge, Side Step and Guard. One of the Blitzers will be a killer, with Block, MB, PO and Dodge. One of the Blitzers will be a ball-sacker, with Wrestle, Tackle, Dodge and Grab. All of the Catchers will get Dodge first, and I might make one of them a ball-sacker too with Wrestle, Tackle and Dauntless. I'd like to have two of them with a skill-set akin to Dodge, Block, Pass Block, Side Step to annoy ball-carriers and threaten interception to cut off my opponent's options for passing. Who knows, maybe I'll actually manage an interception or two with them. Most of the Linos will be Wracklers, one a Kicker, and maybe I'll even make a DP or two late in development, they are cheap, they have AV 8 and I will probably be able to keep a deep bench eventually. I'll be able to Wrestle annoying Blodge/Side Step Elves to the ground and then gang-foul them off the field. I'm sure coaches like nufflehatesme will agree with me on this plan All of this said, the team is still rookie, and I am still a newbie when it comes to coaching Slann. I'd love some input on how to best buy the rest of my players, that is, in what order, and how to skill them up. I'm leaning towards getting the Krox next, since it'll add some much-needed muscle to the team. Barring some serious injuries or deaths that will need immediate replacements, that's probably the plan. I can live with some Journeyfrogs on the LOS until then.
