Hello,

This wardancer http://www.fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=player&player_id=7958795 from this Blackbox team http://www.fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=team&op=view&team_id=651924 rolled a second double on his fourth skill roll.

He already has tackle, mighty blow and strip ball. What should he pick? Juggernaut? Piling on? Guard (seems a waste on a wardancer)?

I never had a wardancer with either juggernaut, piling on or guard, so I don't know how it is, but I guess both juggernaut and piling on could be worth it. Or something else perhaps?

A Wardancer on his backside is still getting Fouled, even today. And he's not hard to disable.

PO is perhaps the popular choice, but you aren't trying to outbash anyone. I'd probably ignore the double. Guard invites contact, Juggs is way too much of a one shot deal and Wrestle does the job better if Sure Hands are about.

Probably SS.

With juggernaut, you'll be able to strip ball on Both Down results

I voted guard, jump in to opponents cage a guard wardancer then jump in your ag5 wardancer, hey presto 2d block on the ball.

Don't take PO.

If that doesn't float your boat, then forgo the double and take sidestep.

I considered that as well. Leaping twice sounds like a recipee for disaster, but sometimes the threat of being able to do it is more effective than actually doing so. So maybe guard then?

PO is the best choice imo. A wood elf team that is capable of causing pain is truely scary, yes he will get fouled, but only if you are daft enough to leave him prone and you do not surround him with a wall or cage of your own players. The Juggernaut option is the cool pick, but in Box you will get punished for choices like that.

I took piling on. Works well with mighty blow and tackle I guess. Perhaps he'll live long enough to get jump up as well...

Juggernaut could have worked too, but then it works better with frenzy which might take too long to get at this point (probably never).

Thanks for the advice.
