In the time I have spent on Fumbbl, I have never played one team for 100 games. A while back I decided to do it. I chose Nurgle because I had played about 35 games with the team and had a mediocre record with them. Well, a few moments ago I completed my 100th game with my team Don't PoMb Me Bro. https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=team&op=view&team_id=685684&displaymessage=Bio%20Changed
The team went 51/23/26. Now it goes into semi retirement. The plan is to do the same with Amazons, and/or Pro Elves next. The amazons are a little further along and have some great players to build on. I've been watching Pizzamogul play his Pro Elves and it has given me the elf bug. But before I move on, I want to have a quick look at this squad.
The squad should probably be renamed 3 legends and some scrubs. I have been unable to keep any other players healthy. Still, these are the first three legends I have ever produced so I am going to look at each of them.
First up is Random Oracle. https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=8654485
He is the late arrival to the trio with only 87 games played. His claim to fame for the fans is that he is the only player on this team that has killed a legend. He is also the only player with any permanent injuries on the squad. The lower AV has knocked him out of a few matches. He currently sits at #24 on the list of active black box Nurgle Warrior Blockers.
Purple Chest is his twin. https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=8501577
PC has a couple of claims to fame. He caused 100 casualties in 91 games played. He has played in 99/100 team matches. The only match he missed was due to a broken arm caused by a rock thrown from the stands in his 96th game. He is #12 on the list of active black box Nurgle Warrior Blockers, and #19 on the active list of all black box Nurgle Blocking Players with 109 casualties.
Shadow 46X2 is the clear fan favorite. https://fumbbl.com/p/player?player_id=8501583
Shadow is currently #3 on the list of active black box Nurgle Scorers with 51 TDs. He is #19 on the list of active black box Nurgle Stars with 293 Spp. The 293 Spp puts him at #8 for the list of active Black Box Pestigors. He is also #7 on the list of active Nurgle Rushers in the box.
All in all, I think it was a good 100 games. As I look at my play style with them, I am not sure if I played the team most effectively. I play to win each game rather than cause casualties. Therefore I rarely pile on a KO because I prefer the certainty of a player being on the bench at least for the remainder of the drive. Out of 100 games I had 4 pitch clears and two of those were against suicidal/foul happy coaches where ejections accounted for much of it. Also, one of my heavy hitters is my primary ball carrier since he is the team's only blodger. This also reduces damage done and his block numbers are reduced. I am not sure if this reduced my win/loss ratio as one killer was still usually able to blitz each turn.
Over the course of 100 games I averaged about 4 casualties per game.
I found my toughest matches came against good dwarf, necro and undead coaches. Dwarfs with guard/fend. Undead and necros with 4/5 mighty blow simply did more cas and I would be short handed.
Anyway, I am off to the next project. I clearly expect everyone to rate this blog a 1 strictly for CMbPo reasons. I know I would.
