Saurus hat trick!
My favorite [R] team's top scorer just made a hat trick, once again running ahead as top-scorer with 25 TDs!

This puts him only 10 TDs (or 8, a cas and an MVP) from legendhood. =D

He's the #3 all time (#2 active) saurus scorer in R btw.

Update: He's been a legend for a while now, and is still on the LoS most games.

Dunno why you're getting 1s. Miserable lot.

I counter with a 6.
Posted by C3I2 on 2013-07-17 16:39:04
Saurus envy?
Posted by the_Sage on 2013-07-17 18:10:30
I suspect some box purists happened to read it first. 5 healthy superstar sauri and all.

Does anyone know any AG1 players who made it to legendhood without Mb?
(The #1 and #2 saurus scorers have AG2 and bash skills, respectively)

First one I found, no MB. I'm guessing most if not all others in that category got stat boosts instead.

One of Carlo's TGs that got to legend although took mb as the legend skill.

THIS FINE SAURUS DESERVES A 6!!

Nice work.

And in answer to your question, Sage, I think think you'll remember this fine gentleman--

Posted by the_Sage on 2013-07-17 21:39:53
ah yes... what a shame that they retired... =(
Posted by cameronhawkins on 2013-07-17 23:18:14
Oh, they had a very good run, and I'm proud to have coached them. So many wretched ClawPOMB teams given a taste of their own medicine....

That team had very much 'run its course', though. And Box Lizard teams aren't repairable the way Ranked ones are. But great, great fun while it lasted. Maybe my favorite team that I've had.

I like your Sauri, but my favorite ball carrying Saurus is this one:
http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=player&player_id=9479923
The team is built for mobility and ball-handling rather then damage.
Posted by the_Sage on 2013-07-22 10:28:08
Well C3l2, I don't agree (and neither does the H2H):
http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=matches&coach=130176&coach2=224815

Yes, it's a fun team. Just like my own, it's not built for damage (ok, I have 1 Mb among 25 saurus skills where he has 0 among 22 but he has twice the tackle: I'd call both not built for damage). I wouldn't say they're built for mobility, as much as they are for control. Teams like these let you dominate the pitch even without breaking armor. And yes, sure, little lady is a good ball carrier. But is she really worth what you're giving up in order to have her?

Aside from the TV bloat factor of paying 80k and 2 GS skill slots for AG3 (or 40k and 1 slot for AG2), having a dedicated saurus carrier means you remove a saurus from the front lines on your offensive drive. This usually means adding a blitzable skink somewhere. It's like playing with a MNG saurus for half your game. Having all 7 strong players available is key to the pitch domination that makes lizards so great imo.

In addition, a saurus BC also steals the TDs from your other sauri. If you're able to achieve good pitch control (as teams like these should), making a 5+handoff (50% chance with reroll) can be quite safe (as the Scale Models' W/D/L shows).

I've had several sauri roll +AG on the Scale Models, and while I was tempted sometimes I'm glad I didn't take them. I did take one on my other R liz team (mainly to make the two teams very different), and I'm not all that happy about it:

Of course, I play him as an DE coach, so anyone carrying a ball, I know I will get my dirty paws on sooner or later. Sidestep, block; leap, blitz, or in a pinch blitz ending with tackle-zone with tackle and SS on the skink.

Having two Ag+ is a lot better then having one on sauri. I would probably not pick Ag+ my self, as the probability of getting one of those player is low (even if you have dodge already, you need to roll another 11, and that is only a 2/36 probability per skill roll).

Its just not carrying, he is also BETTER at ball pickups then any skink, even skinks with AG+ (unless you burn a RR turn one). Not fumbling the ball, and not losing it wins games.

Now, does not somebody have a ST6 BT Blodge Sauri, that we can discuss also?
Posted by the_Sage on 2013-07-25 18:11:17
Sure, just let me score 8 more TDs, and I just might... =) Otherwise I'll have a ST5 blodge BT tackle one, which isn't much less cool imo.
