Good evening!

I've a TT tournament coming up next week between some friends and bragging rights are on the cards.

I've chosen OWA and have 170K to spend on skills. I've narrowed it down to two rosters but would be extremely grateful for some other viewpoints:

Option 1:
Ogre - Block

Human Thrower
Human Catcher - Block
Human Blitzer - Tackle

Trollslayer - Guard
Dwarf Blitzer - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard

Human Lineman - Dirty Player
3x Human Lineman
Halfling Hopeful

3 x Rerolls
1 x Assistant Coach

Or

Option 2:
Treeman - Guard

Human Thrower
Human Catcher - Block
Human Blitzer - Tackle

Trollslayer - Mighty Blow
Dwarf Blitzer - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard

Human Lineman - Sneaky Git
3x Human Lineman
Halfling Hopeful

2 x Rerolls
1 x Bribe

Thank you for any and all help!

I've always like juggernaut on the slayer, to just push people into the tree, and then pro on the tree to help negate take root.

I take it you can't stack skills in this?

Regarding the Bribe in Option 2: you should overthink this in general, as bribes usually are only (cost) effective for Bribery&Corruption teams. Better take a third RR instead.

Don't take the blockers! Waste of cash - linos and bribes are better. You can get a decent fodder and bribes team out of OWA - also, if you want to take SG, take it on a fling.

This is what I did in Super League and it was kinda fine.

Thread opener asked for a TT tournament setup. I guess the environment is not comparable to league setups like these.
In addition a roster like this depends heavily on the coachs play style.

Thank you for replying!

@daniel7582 - No stacking of skills sadly.

@Carabor - Interesting take regarding the bribe. Could you not see it as an investment to keep the DP on the pitch? Especially if your removing more TV than what both the bribe and player committing the foul cost?

@datom - I agree with you for Leagues but for a tournament the Blockers are Guard Caddies and I think worth the investment for that alone.

It's a question on what you'll rely on - or like said: matter of taste.

It's a 100k investment tough plus an extra skill (DP and/or SG) plus the player itself carrying the skill. In sum you'll be in need to get an cost-intensive opponent off the pitch - must be part of your strategy if you chose this option.
Usually you need (several) gang fouls to achive this, which will have huge impact on your positional play.

On the other hand you could get an additional ReRoll for all purposes and you'll have another Skill free (matter of taste, i.e. Block on the Thrower).
When you choose a SG player you also might not need the bribe - still depends on the dice.

You also could choose an APO for half the cost of a bribe - to eventually keep a player on the Pitch in case of a CAS.

@Carabor - All fair points, thank you. Putting the Fouling to one side, a third, likely more well rounded list would be:

Option 3:
Ogre - Block

Human Thrower - Block
Human Catcher - Wrestle
Human Blitzer - Tackle

Trollslayer - Guard / Mighty Blow
Dwarf Blitzer - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard
Dwarf Blocker - Guard

4 x Human Lineman
Halfling Hopeful

3 x Rerolls
1 x Assistant Coach

Main changes
- Block on Thrower foe better protection and turns into a two player
- Wrestle on Catcher as sweeper

Undecided on Trollslayer having Guard or MB. Guard is arguably stronger overall but a second MB especially with Frenzy is a nice removal asset
