Do you have to be Clawpombing to win a Black Box Major?
I would like to develop a team that could compete in a Major but like playing in the box (dislike cherry picking) and it seems to me that anything but clawpomb is barely viable at the higher ratings.

Does anyone have a list of the Black Box Major winners? (Teams and Coaches) Are they always Clawpombers?

My woodelves won the black cup II. In general elves are very competitive in the box.

I cant remember off the top of my head but i think there have been 7 so far one was pro elves the rest were clawpomb.

just move your mouse over game then click tournaments and you can check :)

Wood Elves for Black Cup II
Pro Elves for Black Cup III, in which the other finalist were Dark Elves.

You tell me :P

My CD's won the WOC II with only 1 claw in all the team. In fact the team stars are 2 hobgobos.

Assuming the coach is atleast average which you obviously are.
Any developed team can win with a reasonable draw, good play and nice dice. Any developed team with some cpombers can win with any draw, pretty good play and ok dice. It's kinda no brainer, in more ways than one.

You don't have to ClawPoMB to win a major, but it helps. It's the strongest skill combination in the game right now so it can never hurt.

A lot depends on the draw of course. Most coaches nowadays have teams that specialize is a certain type of game (playing vs clawpomb in Box, or built to disregard clawpomb in Ranked) and any team runs the risk of getting drawn vs that race they're most vulnerable against.

Get fend. Elves + fend = clawpomb neutered.
