Hi there everybody! I've recently started playing BB on the Cyanide game, and after learning the ropes against the CPU and with a Orc team (which had a nice success) on MP, i went straight for a DE team. I know they are hard to play, but I want to become better with them! While i've been able to make them work quiet well with less experienced coaches, now that i have a TV of about 1500 i'm starting to get pounded. My team (The Monologuers) is: 5 lineman: 1 with kick, 1 with guard, 1 with guard+dodge, 2 without anything 2 witches: 1 with wrestle+strip ball, 1 without anything (she's a newbie) 4 blitzers: 3 with dodge, 1 with dodge+tackle 1 runner: with nerves of steel I had an assassin, but i took him out after he wasn't able to do anything for four whole games (failed all stab rolls against armor 7, failed shadowing, failed dodge rolls, got KO'd everytime he got looked at for more than a second, and skinks laugh at him and his toy butter knife all the time). On defence, i seem to do well: i can screen well and easily jump on the opposition if they make a mistake. against less bashy teams, i risk a bit more, and can often at least not let them score. But on offence, i am having a lot of trouble. I've tried three different tactics: 1: caging. i form a cage and move up the field, tring to move around any roadblocks, while using my lineelves to screen and buy some space to move. This seems to works well most of the time, but as soon as i fail a doge roll with one of the cage members (snake-eyes!) or i get too many casualties i often find myself surrounded and slaughtered. If i manage to score, i'm at least making 2-3 risky dodge rolls or lots of 1 dice blocks. Also stuff like prehensile tail or even worse tentacles can completely destroy this tactic. 2: the passing game: i break a hole in the defence and pile in 2-3 players. However, without dedicated catchers and with low movement, i need some pretty good rolls to get a touchdown. And we all know how dice like to roll. 3: feinting: i feint a passing game, making the opponent move a lot of players to a flank to get my "catchers", while leaving the ball with little protection. When the opponent gets too close, i quickly move my free players to the other flank and pass the ball to them. This has worked too, but leaves me open to interceptions. Which are horrible, as my team is completely out of position to recover. Also, my "false catchers" can easily get wounded, as they have little support. I was thinking about creating a cage and then pass, but i always feel like that's not going to work, as i can't seem to free any players long enough to get a worthy pass. Since my team can't seem to score reliably, i'm really struggling to win games. I can draw, but only if i'm lucky. Please help me! What am i doing wrong? Thanks for any tips!
