So it looks like the next release is Amazons.

GW Facebook has hinted: "a team that delivers"... which is Amazon. And provided an image of a blood bowl logo in the a jungle.

So predictions on changes?

My prediction : my favourite team will become the next Norses - i.e. a bad joke nerfed to the bone by people who know "CENSORED" about the game they sell.

I suddenly feel sad.

20% chance they scrap the roster concept as it currently exists. If not, my stabs at changes would be: 55k Linewomen, a player with a bit of a stat variance (other than ±1 PA), like MA7, or AV9+, and/or something creative (but minor) done with Throwers and Catchers: perhaps replace the Thrower with a different GP-access player. (On the Ball would be fun.)

Not exactly a prediction, but a hope: swapping Dodge with Wrestle.

Don't forget some useless pigs (little snakes with feathers?).
And a new positionnal without dodge.

Well, after beer pigs, what next? Fermented mare's milk ponies?!

And I guess we can't have fend linewomen, as that has been done by Imperial Nobility.

Maybe wrestle linewomen.... and a sneaky git positional!

Amazons are ludicrously imbalanced against most opponents so any nerf is probably good.

I'm apparently super bad with predictions, but here's my take:
- at least one MA7 positional.
- a Big Guy (hoping for a Gorol as a reference to Simyin).
- only one positional with dodge (MA7 catchers) ; default skill becomes Jump up or Sidestep.

Imbalanced as in both ridiculously good and ridiculously bad

I foresee no radical roster change, just tweaks, and at least 2 of: big guy, funny animal, new trait.

Norse are fine, sometimes even better. Pig is godlike. Valk is ace. Sadly fumbbldata doesn't let you filter by date.

Thick skull on AV8+ linemen is a big help.
Pig is optional but clearly some people (including me) like them as a 12th player.
Move 7 combo pass/catch/strip ball piece doesn't have to end up as a blodger. Wrodge is an alternate great developmental pathway which feels like less of a waste to go down.
Lots of flex in that one positional now for the player to decide what they want to do on offense with them.

I get it not everyone likes new norse - but lots of folks think it was nice mix up of a fairly stale team or arguably a buff. Just listening to the 3 Dice block podcast review on my way to work today and their take was Thick Skull was a big buff to the team overall.

Whatever they do they can't be any worse. Even GW can't screw this one up Smile
