    Any other player and you're like "Maybe I should protect him so my precious wardancer doesn't die." But with zombies you just put them wherever you want a tackle zone because who cares if they die. Go play tag with the minotaur. Whatever, nobody cares; you'll mark the guy and you'll die and nobody will miss you and my better players will live. Let's see some stupid elf do that.

    Lineorcs, same principle but tougher and faster.

    Goblins, they can get to places where you need to put them to get hit better than any of the above.

    Lineorcs are the best players in the game. Can do everything, durable, cheap.

    Zombies can do one thing.

    Lineorcs? Pah. Let's see them make a regen roll. Oh, that's right, they don't have regen. Check and mate, my friends.

    AV8 breaks 28%
    AV9 breaks 16%

    KOs are a lot more likely than CASes, and Regen doesn't help with those.

    So Zombies will be getting stunned and removed from the drive almost twice as often as lineorcs, only brought up to the same average survivability by Regen's 50/50. On top of this, while Zombies are a part of a drive, they will be a lot less useful all over.

    I feel there is some inspiration to be drawn from that video for the meeting of the Heroes and the trousered Norsemen.

    I have to agree with Juriel that AV9 is better than AV8 + regen when it comes to marking players.
    Combine that with the face that Lineorcs are AG3 so have more options they are the best linefodder you can get.

    Also all you people talking about all linemen teams are missing the point, linos exist to take hits for better players, when they ARE your better players you're in trouble *cough-dwarfs-cough*

    It's still Dwarves

    Our Linemen are awesome but not our 'better' players.

    I'd wager a team of Dwarf Blockers could beat any 0-16 choice from any other team at Rookie level.

    770k dwarves vs 440k zombies... means zombies can get a fireball, bribe and 2 extra zombies. Hmm.

    They'd be better off with rerolls

    And I'd still back the Dwarves. The Zombies can't capitalise on a Fireball, the AV9 will negate the bribe to an extent and subs aren't that useful with what will no doubt be very long drives.

    The stat Lines are almost identical with the Dwarves having the clear advantages of

    +1 AV
    Block
    Thick Skull

    Enabling them to stay on the pitch longer, turn over less, have a better time blocking and dominate the bash war.

    Ive won quite a few games in mm with my norse all linemen team. I still say elves have the best linemen, to the point where i win game after game with a bag of loners.

    Its official. Woodelf journeymen are overpowered. On anyone elses team theyd be a positional.
