Hey there! I am a new guy here and would like to ask question about Slann team. I was looking for some info on this forum about their team comps and found out that a lot of people think that Krox is not the best choice for them. I would like to know why and what the best starting roster for them? I usually go with

1 x Krox
1 x Blitzer
2 x Catchers
7 x Linefrogs
3 RR

Also any tips & tricks about Slann would be greatly appreciated!I am new to Fumbbl but I play BB2 for about 2 years

Welcome to FUMBBL!

Krox is fun, one of the best big guys. I'd say always take one!

That's a reasonable starting roster. I like to go with more blitzers to start because the catchers hog all the spp. But catchers help you win, so it depends on what you like. Wink

For tips, I'd suggest saving your RR for late in the half. You can take a shot on the ball if you see one, but if you don't have a good chance to pickup the scatter then I probably wouldn't use a RR on it until late in the half. If you can fail some blocks that don't matter too much but keep some RR for the end, you might find stop some scores or even win some games as a result of crazy late-half shenanigans. The key to saving RR is to think about if anything you are going to do this turn is going to NEED a RR or not. If you can start and finish your turn without doing anything that NEEDS a RR, then if you fail something then you just fall. That means moving players around before rolling dice, and so on.

Good luck!

I represent ‘the other’ school of Slann thought to happy (more Catchers, boo Blitzers), but I also love a Krox. Make him so!

The current rules may have us meeting in the middle soon, goo... without spiraling expenses and without wizards (and PO) keeping everyone trim for a reason I would predict large Slann teams with fully skilled blitzers and catchers doing quite well in majors soon enough. The old rules made that very difficult, but these days I'm much more interested in catchers than I used to be! Wink

Perhaps! I don’t really base team building decisions on uncapped TV FUMBBL tournaments, but you might well have a point for those that do.

Without crossing the streams too much, Wizards will be back, GW have said so (admittedly, they’ve not mentioned their exact form). BB2016 isn’t over. It struck me as an odd decision that FUMBBL is keeping CRP stars around while the new rules roll out but binning Wizards, but there you go. As an agility leaning coach, it certainly puts me off playing in uncapped KO tournaments, well, not that they’re my bag anyway.

Erm... /Superofftopic. Soz! Wink

one slann Krox I'll never forget had Juggernaut, Grab, and stand firm. Just kept pushing me to the crowd. That tail pins people down.

I am trying to get my current Krox to super star. Blodge, Stand Firm, Guard. Has been a lot of fun. I sometimes start teams without Krox to get 1 skilled lino's then add in with blitzers as time goes.

But Grue and Goo are a lot better Slann players than me. But I find them a lot of fun.

My current slann boast all 4 catchers and all 4 blitzes with a Krox.
I currently field only 2 linefrogs on any given drive, both +ag

If you don't Krox, you can't haz a gruesome Krox.

Yes, that's what I usually try to do with any team. First try to make actions that don't require dice rolls! I think that's a great advice for any new coach. Thanks happygrue!

What about 1k starting roster? What is your favorite, guys? I would be happy to start with 2 blitzers and Krox but don't have enough gold and I can't really go under 3 RR...
