    I remember hearing something a while back about some officials or other kicking around the idea of giving goblin players the "Sneaky Git" skill for free at level 1.

    The more I think about this, the more I like it. It fits them perfectly fluffwise, of course, and I don't see it making them so powerful that it would make the goblin team anything other than -- well, a goblin team.

    I DO wonder about the implications for an Underworld team. I love Underworld so I'd be behind it all the way, but I wonder if it might not raise their tier.

    And Orc teams... Ahh, Orc teams...

    Any thoughts?

    Sneaky Git is such a rubbish skill I don't think it will make much difference.
    It usually only does something on a double 1 or double 2 on the armour roll, sometimes double 3
    So that is 1 in every 12 or 18 fouls.
    If you figure an average of 6 fouls per game that means only 1 person not sent off every 2 or 3 matches for goblins and a lot less for Orcs.

    It's a crap skill but if you give Gobbo's sneaky git for free what you gonna give Flings, Snots etc? So no:p.

    I think that the new Doom Diver and to a lesser extent Ooligan buff the Goblins enough already. As probably the best of the Stunty teams I think that is probably enough for now unless ‘flings get another buff and Ogres get something good when they are properly released.

    I would agree that gobbos are already better than 'flings and ogres.

    But I just WANT them to have Sneaky Git. And it IS kind of a rubbish skill, so who cares?

    Maybe think of some other rubbish skills to give to 'flings and snotlings/gnoblars? Honestly Sneaky Git works just as well for the snotties and gnoblars, so it's really just Halflings that would need some sort of boost to compensate.

    I think before the latest version there was a guy who improved the stunty teams to narrow down the tiers. I can't remember his name but I know a group did a bit of play testing with it.
    I think Flings got 2 catchers ( AG4 ) and goblins got sneaky git ( May have altered what sneaky git did as well. Go into KO box instead of sent off ).

    But the Doom Diver is a pretty big buff for gobos anyway. It means you scatter the right way 3 times so don't need to gfi on a 1 TTD.
