I must agree the hafling brew seems unplayable, Hot pot could really backfire badly but also it's still a little fireball terribly random, i can see me trying to make it work for 50 games straight

Horatio is only 20k more and 10 times better. You get 2 fireballs (one each half) and no risk of hitting your own bench. Also each player hit by a fireball is counted as getting hit by mighty blow, rather than just the player directly hit. Also remember fireballs do not cause a turnover when you hit your own players (unless they are carrying the ball)

Also Cindy Piewhistle is only 50k and is a bombardier with accurate, so much better.

True. Rostered Master Chef (100 k) would have been way better than adding such crappy inducements.

The icons are mostly done, we need the pie thrower and gardener then they are done.

We have art for all the players other than the goat rider pie thrower and gardener, but I am working on it.

Can you have the bomber, Horatio and the hotpot?

For the brews, can they be used on the trees?

I don't know but... just think about it.

Blitz with a tree.

Rooting on a 2+...
Really stupid on a 2+...
Silly me, it's three squares away, gfi...
Whoopsies, it's a push, well then, frenzy, gfi again...

So many rolls Very Happy


Although it must be noted that in that case trees could dare solo-blocking a deathroller or a fanatic

treez don't have really stupid. Or is that a rule change?

Overall a blitz action with a MV2 player is risky. But things with Halflings get desperate very quickly.

These appear to be the new positionals heading to the hafling team

Fling catcher 0-2: 5/2/3/6 catch/right stuff/dodge/ sprint/ stunty for 50k A
Fling hefty 0-2: 5/2/3/7 statline with dodge /fend/ stunty for 50k AP

As a huge fling fan I can't say I'm happy with these, the catcher is so so, but the hefty seems like a waste of space.

Thoughts?


Thoughts, I love the Hefty as a new edition and I love Ghostbusters!

What I like about the Hefty is what most people will be complaining about. It's team bloat that doesn't fit, but could be very useful for flings.

>> Fling hefty 0-2: 5/2/3/7 statline with dodge /fend/ stunty for 50k AP

Fend isn't a top skill for a player with Passing access. Yet flings don't have block access. The +av and fend means the Hefty is your next best blocker to your treez. So where the confusion will come is, where to play this passer who has better Armor? Up front to try and keep more players alive? At the back to retrieve the ball?
Will their first skill be pass or Leader?

Unsure what statline is?

So my criticism is with the Catcher. It seems like they have made him a very Generic Catcher. I would imagine most starting flings would have a player or two looking just like him. So I would tweek it by giving skills that are useful but don't quite fit, like halflings should be.

my catcher 0-2: 5/2/3/6 diving catch/right stuff/pro/sprint/stunty for 50k G

I would either give G or P access. Pro should give the coach a massive headache "should I use this". I have dropped dodge as this player is more ball focused. With G access they may pick up block later (this may be overkill, I want dodge to be hard to get for this player).

Either way halfling positionals should mirror Halflings. I.e. a team that is trying to play bloodbowl but isn't that good at it. Hence the positionals should have a weird match of skills, not useless but not skills that really fit.
I.e. stand firm or fend instead of block on a blocker. It's not ideal and doesn't fit, but the positional opens up possibilities for the coach he wouldn't otherwise have.

If they just would take the word "diving" out from the catcher's skills then it would be just fine. I mean can you imagine a fling diving anywhere with that fat belly?

Just quick fingers and fast hands flying in the air should be enough and catch would suit that even better. Diving catch is just a joke.

Fling catcher 0-2: 5/2/3/6 catch/right stuff/dodge/ sprint/ stunty for 50k A
Fling hefty 0-2: 5/2/3/7 statline with dodge /fend/ stunty for 50k AP
