Hi everyone,

I have recently found going over a game again to pull out all the 'if's', 'maybe's' and strategy choices has improved my game play. I have recorded a whole series but this video of me critiquing my Vampire play might interest some of you?

Not everything goes around the box, this guides are useful to anybody struggling not only with vamps, but with any team that relies heavily on position, sure bb2's rules are outdated, clunky, wrong and so on so forth, but the core is the same.

I like em Davo, It would be good to see you play around here though

Thanks for this. Your performance in NAF is solid so it's good to hear!

In bb2 with pilling on, vamps are even more challenging to play with!

Cheers Andy, always nice to see someone attempt to bridge "communities" (it's all the same one anyway). Ignore the peanut gallery, the initiative is good and appreciated.

I know plenty of people enjoy watching bb2 replays over fumbbl replays (for whatever reason), but even ignoring that, it's got to be more helpful for someone looking to learn to have the coach actually going through all their decisions rather than for the viewer to guesstimate their purpose.

Ps. love the struggles to remember what Moranian has... not often seen on TT eh Razz

A high ranking vamp team in dornbirn was doing very well with 5 pro and 1 blodge vamps and probably 1 (maybe 2) team rerolls.

Do you have a schedule of when you play games Andy? I get twitch notifications but often too late. Great advice as you play. Highly recommend it.

Hi, yes I do it is:

Tuesday evenings 1930-2230
Saturday mornings 1000-1400
Sunday evenings 1630-2030
All times are UTC +1.

I am moving house next week so some disruption to the schedule is likely.

Hey Andy, watched the whole replay. I see you play VAmps rerolling bloodlust so that kinda doesn't fit my playstyle with less rerolls and more biting. Also you don't have a lot of players to bite.

Two minor things to consider:
21:46 you reroll the bloodlust, though you could actually follow up and bite a lieing thrall so you got one more thrall up to send to the backfield.
45:00 since you're in the lead maybe leave the vampires back, try to tag and gaze as much as possible as well as leaving the str5 and a thrall on the right side so you might win some turns in order to stall it out. Was a pretty offensive move as well as trying to score in the end while you might have just kept the ball and leave it at 2:3.
