Hi, I want to ask you if the use of PO in blackbox requires the use of the reroll. It's a very useful skill but the use of the reroll "ruins" it.

It does require a reroll. I see no use for it because of that, maybe unless it works with pro.

Pro can't be used to re-roll Piling On.
Only the rr can be used.

As an aside, I'd add that CRP old Piling On not requiring a rr ruined the game. Razz

Piling On is not useless, just very specialized. That's much better than the old status quo where it was as ubiquitous as Guard.

+1. It's still a thing at very high TV.

Vampires of course, they ALWAYS come with the extra RR. And after really thinking about it... why not go out with a bang on a failed blood lust!

Why Vampires come with the extra RR?
If you are referring to Pro, the skill can't be used for Piling On

Pro + PO is a thing, in that Pro gets you up to 20% more knockdowns. But you can't use Pro in place of the RR to Pile On directly. However, a team with a bunch of Pro will be more likely to have the RR available in the 2nd quarter, when PO is at its best.

Yes, altnough using Pro to rr no knock down result could generate Double Skulls, Frenzy is better if you are aiming to generate more knock downs.
Without the context of a specific race it's too much theorybowl.
Speaking of Vampires, they typically have Block, Dodge, Pro, Side Step, Tackle (assuming no stats/double).
No room for Piling On in the build.
Could be Block, Dodge, Pro, Tackle, Mighty Blow, Piling On, but doesn't sound good to me.

Dwarfs, as they are bashy with cheap rerolls, could be a candidate for piling on (to reroll stun) ; same with human maybe. Chaos have the additionnal benefit of claws but more expensive RR.
