Nevermind about the name, the team is called Limmared Leapsills, the first part is my home town (a really, really tiny Swedish town), the second is a pun on the Swedish slang "lipsill", approximately translated to "whiner", since it's hard to distinguish between the English "leap" and the Swedish "lip" (to cry), this has led to many, many bad puns at the local TT pitch. I never planned to start a blog with the team anyway. I have been playing Slann in the perpetual open TT league for a while now, and decided that the Champion 2,5 mil TV Red Rockets needed a break. Hence, BBtactic's first Slann blog (I think). The team is right now above 1800 in TV, but feels like rookies compared to the teams I'm up against, I'll be spending loads of inducement money this season. Luckily I feel that Slann is a team that both has decent star players and can really benefit from a Wizard, although popping the ball loose shouldn't be much of an issue. My roster as it is pre-season: Linefrog - Wrestle, Guard Linefrog - Wrestle, Tackle Linefrog - Wrestle, Kick Linefrog - +ST Linefrog - rookie Linefrog - rookie Catcher - Guard Catcher - Dodge Catcher - Dodge Catcher - +AG Blitzer - Block, Dodge Blitzer - Block, Guard, +AG Blitzer - rookie Froxigor - Break Tackle 4 RRs, 5 FF, Apoth for a TV of 1850 and 30k in the bank. Next on my to-buy list is a fifth re-roll. Slann tends to roll a tonne of dice, a least when I coach them, and due to the lack of basic skills such as Sure Hands, Block, Catch etc moving the ball around is troublesome and due to their only average speed, I find myself sometimes even tossing passes with the agile Catcher in order to score. The neat thing about the Catchers is that they can catch an accurate pass on a 2+ when marked by one player and then 2+ Leap (lip, that is) away for the score. The bad part is that neither the Pass, Catch or Leap comes with built-in re-rolls, so a fifth team re-roll feels justified and it's only 50k of TV. I can get them with the boatloads of inducements I get each game if I need to. Another issue is their low FF, due to my inability to win games with them (and roll <6 on draws) I'll probably lose the FAME roll every match, so any kick-off results relying on that is sure to be lost. In any case, my first opponent is the Chaos Dwarf team my Rockets beat in he previous semi finals, coached by a skilled coach. I will post his roster tomorrow, and the match will probably be played on Sunday. I know I'll be getting a lot of inducements, I have no less than 520k to play with even after the mandatory Wizard. Any suggestions on how to spend these are most welcome, I'm thinking of something along the lines of: (Wizard 150) Slibli 250 Helmut Wulff 110 Bribe 100 Babe 50 (Booze for the approx 12k fans 10) Thoughts?
