That's basically what I said in our clan chat to @DireSickFish
Ok this lad rolled 5, 5
MA would be great as he is my 1 turning specialist. But is a double skill better? Block for survival or wrestle for sacking? Sure hands to make even better retriever?
Bit worried dual purposing him as wrestle sacker would mean he dies soon.
All four are solid options. Still 3 sure hands on team seems a wee bit too much, even if throwers are not getting through tackle zones. And wrestle is going to shorten his already brief lifespan. MA7 is fun, it is up to you if you want to turn him into that role or more of a generalist.
Which is why you can't go wrong with block on that guy.
Wrestle seems a waste as he wants to be recovering the ball not knocking it loose and you will get another gobbo with 2heads and horns who does it better for less TV.
I would take block to keep him alive though the MA is also tempting.
I would take +MOV. He's not supposed to be hit. He will die in one of the following fashions: eat by a troll, crashed after a TTM, stumbling on the TD line, dropping after the failure of the xth 2+ dodge while trying to recover a ball. Wrestle or block will not avoid these things to happen. But they will increase his value by 30k.
Sure hands is good too, expecially if you recover ball more often than OTTD.
+MA, he is a UW goblin, he is not meant to live forever. Make him even better at what he is good at.
Ok looking like definite MA, @Borke and Pidpad also agreed with this. Thanks guys!
I'll be sad when he dies he is not just any UW gobbo!
A new Blunderworld query! What does this guy get next? Rolled normals. Accurate, HMP, whacky mutation?
You have kickoff return and kick too.
Yeah should have mentioned those. Kick is possible I guess.
Orie and I are gonna turn this into the Underworld Advice Network!
My 13 game Underworld team has a +MV Thrower who just rolled 4+6 for his next level! MV 9 could be amazing, while Block will keep him alive. Maybe Wrestle to make him my safety to help protect him a bit on Defense? I've also just gotten an AG 4 Goblin who could take over ball carrying duties against the non cage-diving non leaping teams.
What do you think?
With agi 3 and no dodge he's still not great at one turning (though I suppose 2 heads but even then) I would just take block, you don't need MA 8 in a safety but it does make him a much better ball carrier.
Bit dull but I agree @Larkstar block better
I would take mov. It allows you to push less to get into td range, thus to expose less your thrower.
Agi 4 goblin is for ball recovering, not for ball carrying.
I'd go for +MA as well. First reason is the one @Veggente85 mentioned: You have a much longer range to score from, which means you only need to push a few squares into the opponent's half and then you can bide your time, and the opponent needs to cover the whole field, which he most likely can't (which means you don't need to dodge). Second reason is the TTM one-turner: An MA9 Thrower can cover a lot more of the back field on the kick-off, making the situation where you can't even hand off the ball to your flyer much less likely. Oh and also this player can pick up the ball and reach the safety of a cage much more reliably on offense.
And yeah, he's the ball carrier, not any of your Gobbos.
2 for Block and 2 for +MV! The +MV means he's 15 SPP away from Block, 35 from Two Heads, and 60 from Extra Arms. Yikes.
I'd pick the +MV without any hesitation whatsoever.
Movement on your ball carrier is insane value. Take it.
Always take move on your ball carrier.. there ain’t no natural 6 to move that extra square like there is for everything else..
