Doom Diver, player with a skill called Swoop. We don't know what this is yet, but if I were to guess I would say d3 scatter instead of d8 for TTM, you pick the direction it faces. Or RR landing.


Hmm a doom diver is supposed to get launched at enemies and not the ground.
So it would make more sense if the skill represented dealing more damage to an opposing player if he gets hit. Or is more likely to hit opposing players by hitting all players that are in the 8 squares surrounding the landing square.

btw where did you get that info from?

BrOgres just need a complete rewrite, in their current form they are pointless with or without PO

Because it is a goblin team. Trolls aren't very keen to have good teamwork going with their food.

It's thematic but is one thing that makes them so much harder than their stunty peers.

Yeah, seriously. Treemen and Ogres without Loner can be quite dangerous!

I´m little bit disappointed in these goblin changes. Dirty player would suit no race better than goblins and it is so hard to get. Now we get some silly fan favourite and some silly doom diver...

Personally I like that a player has access to Fan Favourite besides League house rules, I am waiting to see what Swoop entails...

Sure its good to have the skill in the game, but no one with any desire to win will pay 30k for a goblin with fan favourite. Its a pointless addition in its current form.

Do you think? I've not given it any significant thought yet, but 30 k for +1 FAME doesn't immediately strike me as something to instantly dismiss. Perhaps you're right and it will be proven to be inefficient, but I'm not sure yet. It feels like it sits well with the team to me; the Goblin weaponry is very swingy in nature. It can go well and wipe you out, and it can instantly fail and give the game away. A new positional that has an impact on the really swingy FAME based kickoff events feels like it fits. Going from +1 to +2 (or defending against +2) is a happy thing when rolling 12 on the kickoff table (or even the RR events)! We're all going to have an opinion on what the 'right' changes would be, but the Ooligan certainly isn't an offensive move in my book.

Anyway, best to hold judgement until it drops. From the leaked description / Goblin page, we're getting a continuation of the negligible roster changes (perhaps entirely inconsequential if you're right), at least one new star and lots of fun, optional stuff for league commissioners to play with as they choose. That's a good direction to go in, in my opinion. CRP rosters were great, the Stars were a bit of a hotchpotch (so more valueable ones would be a nice addition) and leagues can enjoy BB in whatever fun way they so choose. All power to mad, optional refs in mad, optional stadia. Wink
