    I started a brand new ogre team for the OFTL and had my first match with them today against a TV1000 team of amazons. I started with Coach's recommended setup with 4 RR, 4 Ogres, 8 Snotlings. In the second half of the game, he wound up getting 5 amazons on one of my ogres and knocked him down and then gang fouled him. The gang foul resulted in a fatality. :skull:

    I ended up BARELY losing (if I would have rolled one 4+ toss and catch I would have had a turn 16 equalizer) and only picked up a few 4 SPP's on one ogre (thankfully not the dead one) and MoM went to a snotling.

    So for my next match I have 3 ogres, 8 snotlings, 4 RR and 70k cash. The way I see it, I have a few options (restarting the team is unfortunately not one of them due to the persistent league rules):

    • Suck it up and save up for another ogre in 1 (or more likely 2 more games).
    • Buy an Apoth and a snotling and hope for the best
    • Sell off one of my rerolls and buy another ogre

    I hate the idea of playing with only 3 RR, but I also hate loner ogres and only having 3 of them really would suck. So, what do you think? The league is just unstructured MM at this point, but I will be entering a tournament with this team soon.

    Help me Obi-Coach Kenobi, you're my only hope.

    MoM = MVP I gather, (Man Of the Match i guess).

    I would get the apoth and play the next two matches with 3 ogres and then set out to conquer the world:pow:

    that is why I prefer the 5 ogre 2 RR roster for shorter competitions. If one of the big guys gets hurt You can survive with four, while with three it can be a problem.
    If You have the possibility of selling a re-roll, I would go for it and buy the fourth ogre. Unless inducements will allow You to hire a mercenary.

    Bit of a toss up between saving for an Ogre or getting the Apothecary and saving for an Ogre afterwards. I would probably get the Apothecary to avoid an injury to one of the three you have left. I don't see any point in spending 20k to get a Snotling though. Hopefully as Mico suggested you can get a Mercenary.
