An update after a long time. So, I took Mighty Blow for the Tomb Guardian skillup and it proved very useful in the next match against a much more developed Necromantic team (although with their star werewolf missing). I had a pretty good shot at winning that game, as he finished with 3 players on the pitch, but ultimately it ended in a 1-1 draw. At least I managed to get some SPPs from casualties. I had three matches left then - against a rookie (and rather poorly faring Amazon team), against a very unlucky Orc team (most dead/casualties in the league) coached by previous season's winner and against a very developed and well-coached Lizardmen team. A win against Amazons would set me very well. A draw would be a bit worse, but still giving me a fair chance at advancing to the playoffs. Of course, I lost (nil to one). Having no Tackle on the team, I was unable to do much against the 'zons, with one Side Step Thrower being especially annoying and getting in my players' way all the time. On my drive they (rather luckily) retrieved the ball from my Block Tomb Guardian pow!: on a -2D block inside a cage), which pretty much nailed it. Next match, against the unlucky Orcs was rather boring. I had no real motivation to play and my opponent, while being a much better coach than me, was plagued by his Nuffle curse which seems to follow him whole season. He stopped me pretty easily on my drive, but then started to fail GFIs all over the pitch. His main ball carrier (AG4 Blitzer) was unable to run away from my guys due to a -MV injury from one of previous matches, so I 2D blitzed him, retrieved the ball with a Thro-Ra and scored, winning 1-0. The funny part is I still have a shot at playoffs, since other teams' matches went in some weird directions. There are four playoff places, with two already taken by Chaos and Lizardmen and two more still open for three teams (including mine). To advance, I need to win, and count on at least one of the other teams to draw or lose, or I need to draw and count on one of the other losing. I can even advance if I lose, if it's a one TD difference loss and one of the other teams loses by four or more TDs (unlikely!). Winning against the Lizardmen will be very difficult (they only lost to Chaos so far, but Chaos team has a perfect score 8 wins in 8 matches), even a draw will be a huge success. Any tips for this match (other than "blitz the Skinks" )?
