    You are still firmly on track for best team motto of the season.

    Also, but less importantly, good job on the 1st place so far ;)

    ..and an away loss.
    The San Jose ShOrks 1-0 The Misunderstood 99.

    Orcs took a Bribe which did not work - but they were Nuffle blessed all game, my team was not so fortunate.

    Nurgle Drive:
    Could not break through...even when all the Orcs were in full contact on T6, I could not get a break - on T1 I had Badly Hurt a Rookie, but after the Orcs on their T7 KO'd two and stunned two of mine - (having KO'd one of mine on T1) - I had to risk GFI's and got the dreaded 1/1, and self-stun, for the ball carrier escort.
    Orcs floored my ball carrier and stopped my scoring attempt.
    0-0

    Orc Drive: 11 v 11:
    For some the Orcs spread our so I was able to get to their ball carrier - plus I got two KO's (and their first ball carrier after a 4+ 3+ dodge) - but I failed the crucial 2x2d block attempts on their ball-carrier - Orcs made every play, including a Double GFI get away on T15 (if they had got a failed 1/1 self stun it would have been a draw ;)) and scored T16..

    Also, I made one error - forgetting to dodge my Block/MB Pestigor away on T13/14, who was crowd surf killed and failed the regeneration roll.

    1-0

    One of those games where I failed every crucial play (bar one) even with rerolls - and the Orcs made every single one of theirs (one of them needing a team reroll).
    I managed to get at their ball carrier three of four times - they only got to mine once.....and I lost...ah..Blood Bowl.

    EDIT: typo.

    Got to do better in next game...
    ..although the Orcs did to me what I have done to three opponents this season..the 3+ pick up double GFI working (to leg it and score) ;)
    I think next MD means a three-way battle for the title... :D

    ...and a Home Win:
    The Misunderstood 99 2-0 Imagine Dragons [BBT]

    Lizardmen took Slibi and a Mercenary Saurus.

    Lizardman Drive:
    Blitz Kick-Off result - but I was unable to do do anything with it, but made an error in moving my Guard Nurgle Warrior into contact on one flank - it was a touchback and the Lizards gave it to a Saurus on the other flank: then disaster for them. They suffered a double both down block rerolled into Double Skulls.
    Meant I was able to smother the Lizardmen, and in the next five turns they lost 3 Skinks KO'd and a Saurus (Thunder) dead - I lost my Beast KO'd
    A Rotter got the ball and scored T8.
    1-0
    It had been a dire half for the Lizardmen.
    They suffered 4 turnovers all important, I suffered one non-critical one when a Rotter Skull/Both down rerolled into Both Down/Skull.

    Nurgle Drive 11 v 11:
    Got the ball, caged, Beast worked 6/6 turns, Lizards backed off, so I scored asap - I have been on the receiving end of a dicing and it is wearying when an opponent stalls for a half - I scored asap with a Rotter, on T13, to give him his 4th skill. Lizardmen lost Slibi Badly Hurt - my team made every play.
    2-0.

    3-Turn Lizardman Drive: 10 Lizardmen v 11 Nurgle.
    They went for a left hook advance..and it fell apart with two turnovers on blocks, even with rerolls - while my tema made every play from blocks to multiple GFIs, only needing one reroll.
    Lizards were unable to break into my half - they didn't get through my AV while I caused maybe six stuns in two turns (we were full on contact).
    2-0.

    ..and a home loss:
    The Misunderstood 99 0-1 Vermintide All-stars

    One of those tough games where every critical Skaven play bar one worked, every Nurgle one failed.
    Skaven did suffer one turnover, when my Beast intercepted their T8 pass to stop a possible Skaven Defensive TD.
    They out blocked me all game..yikes...after being brave and going all-in :D.
    I flattened them SIXTY times....cannot even remember a game where I have done that many successful bocks in recent gaming - think 60+ once over at the OCC in 2018.
    I caused 4 KOs and a casualty, with a few stuns...but not enough.
    My players were flattened 25 times, suffering a KO and 2 Casualties and regular stuns.

    Loss means the team can be anywhere from 1st to 4th at season end, depending upon other results.

    Ahem..they also suffered a Turnover on T16..a 2+ dodge that would have got them a second defensive TD.

    The Misunderstood 99 1-0 WAAAGH Smashers

    Orcs went for a Babe and a Bribe.
    Orc Drive:
    They ripped through my team, with six MB, two Guard, and a DP, and two +ST Orcs - a Blitzer and a Black Orc.
    I lost 5 players (Warrior Dead, Pestigor BH, Beast, Pestigor and Rotter KO'd)....and for 5 turns didn't even cause a stun back - Orcs surrounded my beleaguered players...and stalled near my EZ.
    I did a desperation play: 4+ Dodge, 3+ Dodge, blitz that floored and stunned the Orc Thrower near my EZ..and the ball scatter was good for me, hard for the Orcs.
    Orcs needed a 3+ Dodge, 3+ Pick up, 4+ Pass, 4+ Catch to score...and failed the pick up.
    0-0

    Nurgle Drive: 11 v 11
    ..and my five Rotters did me proud: they left hook advanced and scored in 5 turns, while their teammates took off two Orcs (one BH, one KO'd).

    Orc Drive 9 Orcs v 11 Nurgle
    ...and the Orcs lost a turn to Riot.
    My players smothered them - the Orcs still had an outside chance to score...but they failed a 3+ rerolled dodge.
    I did..ahem..make an error in miscounting squares..so all three of my players in the opposing half were 3 GFI squares away from the Orc EZ rather than 2.
    I had a chance of a 1spp levelling pass..but failed it.
    Survived the T16 Orc smacks.
    1-0 Win..and means Runner-Up Slot in Ostland S19.
    And promotion into Tier 2 :D

    Waleed, I’m very impressed by your team :)

    Can you explain the reason why you choose SH and 3-arms for your rotters instead of more diverse skills?
