Hi, I had a question about developing my orc team. I've been trying to give MVPs to the blitzers (except once where I accidentally clicked the thrower), but I'm wondering if I should instead try to give them to Black Orcs. Which is considered the better option, when developing a low TV orc team?

Personally, I'd prefer to give it to the BoBs since the blitzers should naturally get TDs and CAS to grow their SPP. BoBs are a little more difficult to do that with. Maybe you could try a thing out where you only give blitzers MVPs when they're within 5 SPP or less of a skill and pump the rest into the BoBs?

I prefer to skill the BoBs, too..pretty much what mrt said.

Orcs are so much better once you have a solid core of B, MB, G BoBs.

Give it to the black orcs, since they dont start with block, and also having the strength advantage with them. Having a ST 4 block, guard player is pretty good. Having 4 of them is even better.

May you show the Orc roster (or link it)? That would help.
Generally I nominate the positionals who can skill if they get the MVP, but this may vary according to the development stage of the team.
So if I have 2 Blitzers with 2 SPPs and 1 BoB with 2 SPPs I will nominate them, if I have 3 Blitzers with 2 SPPs each I will nominate them instead.
BoBs tend to have higher priority than Blitzers because they struggle to get SPPs by scoring and because they don't start with Block, so they need it to be more reliable and to improve the chance of causing casualties.
Linemen have lower skilling priority than positionals, so I nominate them more rarely (for example if I want a Kicker).

Which players do you want to get skills? Nominate those guys.

Got a Lineman with 1 spp or more and 0 skills. Want that Lineman to have a skill... nominate him. Get him the skill you want him to have.

But... like most people said... feed the MVPs to the BOBs. They take FOREVER to skill when you can't nominate them to get MVPs. After they get Block they can start to earn a few spps on their own. After the also have Mighty Blow they start to get plenty of spps no their own.

The Blitzers tend to get their on spps without help. But you should nominate them sometimes too. Especially when extra 5spps equals a new skill... and especially when that skill they need is one you are very short on adding as a team. IE. if you really need more Guard or Tackle or maybe Sure Hands to keep your team competitive.

It's simple: the top 3 who made the most combined hits or fouls in the match gets nominated for the MVP - a time honored orc tradition.

MVPs should certainly go to Black Orcs and the troll!
