This would be my starting XI
2 blitzers 200K
9 Linemen 630K
2 RR 100 K
2 FF 20 K
1 Apo 50 K

Any recommendations on how to improve this team, please.

I'm using the 3rd edition HE team ( 12 miniatures + starplayer Prince Moranian)
En plus I have Jordell Freshbreeze and Hubris Rakarth and even Horkon that can be used as Starplayer or as proxys if needed

I suggest 2 Blitzers, 1 Catcher, 8 Linemen, 3 RRs (starting HE need 3 rrs because they lack core skills, and if you start with 2 you will have to spend 100k to buy the 3rd later).
Invest the first winnings on the Apo, then add at least 1-2 Catchers.
Don't buy FF.

Thrower is not absolutely needed.
Catchers are way better ball carriers (and sackers too).

Yeah 2 Blitzers 1 Catcher 3 RR is the best starting roster. I wouldn't add Catchers too quickly, without skills they're too vulnerable. A good rule of thumb is get Blodge / Wrodge, then buy the next Catcher. Personally I like the Thrower and would get him next thing after the Apoth, provided you don't have to replace Blitzers or the Catcher.

YEAH... what PC and MattDakka say.

Get Apoth ASAP... Add Thrower next.
Get Dodge on Catcher ASAP... just 2 TD's
Get Block OR Wrestle and Dodge on every Catcher before you add a new Catcher... always feed the TD's to the NEW Catcher until he has Dodge and Wrestle or Block.

I would say always nominate both Blitzers for MVPs... until they each have Dodge and Tackle. Maybe even keep doing that afterwards.
Throwers and Catchers can skill quick without help.

I personally like the Phoenix Warriors Wink

Pass, Safe Throw and access to P skills for 20k seems like decent value to me. People always say 'passing shouldn't be a plan A strategy, even for elves ..'. My reply to that is: it's not a perfect world and situations often come up where plan A is not an option .. Wink

Plus, they have funky hats.

I know what you mean, and they are fine players for the price. Good leader caddys, not saving a huge deal, but every 0.01% eh?

And yet catchers have ma8.

8

and come with ag4 as standard, and a similar amount of sure hands.

I gue88 either opti8n is goo8.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of the catchers. If you don't like the catchers, there's not much point in paying HEs Smile

I agree that the throwers are more optional and it probably comes down personal preference/playstyle etc.

At low TV, I would score quick and try to rush your opponent on defense. With so few skills and rerolls, it'll be risky to try to stall out your offense too long.
