Background

Half-Elf teams were never very common, though every now and again one made its presence felt on the Blood Bowl circuit. However recently there has been a huge increase in the number of Half-Elf players and teams. No one knows exactly what caused this recent boom in the Half-Elf population though some believe it is more than coincidence that it is 20 years since Jordell ‘the Cyclone’ Freshbreeze and Hubris 'Pain-Giver' Rakarth were in their prime and touring The World with the Talon Tearaways. They only played together for a year before their bitter rivalry destroyed the team, but in this year the two elf legends of the game left their mark on The World in more ways than one.

Rationale

This was a pretty straight forward roster. I wanted them to be humans with agility access to represent their elf half. Though I did not want them to have access to a big guy, as they are half elves they would not wish to play with such a creature and consider them selves above such lowly life forms. I considered giving them all extra arms, just to represent their heightened ability with the ball, but it just looked a bit to bolted on, so I settled for just giving the Thrower and Catcher these buffs in the form of Diving Catch and Strong Arm. Strong Arm doesn't initially give them a better passing roll though allows them to throw a bit further than a normal human on a 3+, and should make developing a passing game a good option.

The only thing left to consider was the Re-Roll price, and I felt 60k would be appropriate. Although all Elves and Humans have 50k rr's I thought Half-Elves should probably be 60k as I imagine them to fight amongst them selves a fair bit about their blood line and so on. Also from a balance perspective it seemed right so that they had a downside over normal humans other than their lack of a Big Guy.

Season 2 Changes
258 games played, win percentage of 57.17%. This is the higher end of tier 1, which is as expected as most of their games have been the low TV range 1000 to 1500 and on the whole the secret league teams are mostly tier 1.5 or tier 2 with a few tier 1. There is no issue, no need to change them, though their Catcher cost was reduced by 10k as in 2016 edition the human catchers price was dropped.
