So... my Goblin team got mashed up pretty good in it's most recent game, and it's effective TV is down to 810. With only 2 games under their belt, it is my understanding that they are only allowed to play matches within 10% TV... or 891.

I seem to be completely unable to start a match -- is there any way out of this short of retiring the team?

thanks,
GB

1) enter a tournament

or

2) find someone in the same situation and agree a game via pm/forum

Ranked Smacks are pretty good for that, as are Blackbox Brawls for box teams in a similar pinch. Drawn late Wednesdays.

Otherwise someone will answer you here with a similarly smashed-up team.

Hah, my ogre team joined them except at 740 tv. 3 ogres died in 2 games, and at 130k I couldn't quite replace them. I'm thinking it's time to retire these teams and start a more newbie-friendly race!

Yeah, gobbos and Ogres are very unforgiving for newbies (although, losing 3 Ogres in 2 games is extremely unlucky!). Depending on what style you want to play, I'd recommend Orcs for a bashing game or Dark Elves if you want to go elfy. Humans are also good all-rounders and good for learning with.

Also, I recommend joining the 145 Club - great place for newer coaches to play against each other and learn Smile

Thanks, JellyBelly! I hadn't heard of the 145 club, but that sounds like exactly where I belong (CR 143... hrm...).

Went with humans as a sort of 'learning' team... one in the 145 club and 1 for ranked battles. Is it a mistake not to start with an Ogre on a human team?

Not a mistake. Both methods are viable.

It's not essential, but I personally like the Human Ogre - gives them some useful muscle Smile

Sadly my human team also had a run of bad luck with a dead blitzer and a schlew of injuries... orcs it is! First game with the orcs is the only game I've ever played without lasting casualties Smile. Definitely less frustrating not to have to replace players after every game.
