Snotlings; the weakest, most useless excuse for a life form found throughout The World. These vicious little gits have achieved notoriety for their sheer stupidity and their foul habits, and to this day ‘Snotling fondler’ is an insult coined throughout the Old World. Despite all this most green skin tribes still keep a swarm of Snotlings with them; for entertainment or feeding them to their Trolls.
No one knows exactly how Snotling teams started playing Bloodbowl, and no Snotling ever lived to tell the tale of the first Snotling match.
Some believe a swarm of Snotlings running away from a mob of ravenous Trolls stumbled on to a pitch one day and were challenged to a game. The gluttonous Trolls defended the Snotlings with their lives, convinced the opposition were trying to eat their lunch. Others believe Orc teams organised the first Snotling teams for bashing practice. While others assume Orcs just made the teams for a laugh.
Whatever the truth one thing is certain. Snotlings are still the laughing stock of the Old World.
Designing this roster was as straight forward as it can get. Snotlings and Trolls already exist in CRP so their stat line was used. Like the Ogre roster Loner was removed from the Trolls.
Re-rolls always represent the teams training facilities, organisation and so on. As a big guy roster with very stupid players it was clear the rrs had to be 70k.
To make the roster a little more competitive than the awful Ogre roster 2 Snotling Pump Wagons were added. The reasons for this were 2 fold. Firstly they are a staple of the Snotling fluff, and what they are most famous for and they appear in a did You Know in Companion 3, so they do exist in The World. The other reason they were added was to make the team a little stronger than it otherwise would be. Ogres are currently the worst roster in the game by quite some way. Trolls also have a worse negatrait than Ogres which will make managing the team harder and the Trolls also only have Ag1 which means they are not natural ball carriers unlike the Ogres in the Ogre roster. This means you are basically forced to use the Snotlings as the ball carrier unless you can get a +Ag troll and even then that would be a questionable decision. Even with the added bonus of Pump Wagons this would still be the worst roster in the game along with Ogres.
Choosing the Pump Wagons skills and stat line was straight forward, basically it is a Deathroller with one less Av and 1 more MA.
Season 2 Change
Snotling teams played 150 games with a win percentage of 32% which puts them right where they should be along side Goblins and Halflings in Tier 3. However I did still make 1 changed based on my own experiences playing with them, as I felt the Pump Wagons were too good without Loner, so added Loner back on so they were no longer quite so unstoppable.
Season 3%% Snotlings continue to do terribly, 128 games played with year with a win percentage of 25.78%. Which is lower than I wanted. I still have big concerns over the 2 Pump Wagons however the team is performing poorly so no change made so far. I will not lock the team in just yet, but if they continue to sit below tier 3 after a year or 2 I will leave them be, even though i feel they are better than their win record would suggest.
