Ok, the Exploding Cup approaches, and I need a team to put on the field. I want to play a team I don't have yet, and I need your help. At the close of the poll (in 3 days), I will create a team with whichever race gets the most votes.

This is your chance to saddle me with a team you think will get me booted quickly from the tourney, a team you think I am really missing out on, or a team that perhaps you think is broken and I just need to play it to see the light.

Do your worst!

I have a Snotling team, so they are not on the list.
I have a Halfling team, so Pie is also off the list.

First year I went with Slaves, last year Skinks. The Skinks were great. This year I'm torn. I'd like to give Pygmies and Gnoblars a go, but Cheaters appeal too.

I votes Slaves. I think they're a bit skewed currently and would like to see how you do with them. I had problems keeping players on the field because of the mass penalty rolls, and then you just have the 2 Mechas which people seem to dislike.

Finally, I'd just like to say thanks for this tournament. For the last 2 years it's been the most fun thing I've done on FUMBBL and I hope it continues for many years!

Fae cos there ain't enough of them about and you'll love them once you start playing them!

Pygmies are the most underrated roster in Stunty. I like skinks okay too, but Pygmies are the way to go.

Time for me for a second chance for Gnoblar.

Just for skins. My favourites in all Stunty teams ^^

I wish we could have a League set up in the Stunty Division.

Looks like Pygmy are in the lead, with Albion Fae just behind. Suddenly there is a push for Skink as well, perhaps people have grown a conscience and want me to be halfway competitive? Very Happy

Get your vote in, and more importantly, apply your own rookie team!

Seeing as I have no experience in stunty what teams are better? Is there a "tier" within the stunty teams?

NerdBird, it depends on TV, like regular BB.

For a tourney like this, Forest Gobbos are really good, but they fade fast at high TV. C'Flings are also a very common pick, and they get better with more TV. Cheaters can be great at low TV, or a complete bust. They are a bit of a gamble. Eshin can do well in this format IF they can stay healthy. Big if.

Ultimately though, it is Stunty, pick the team that most appeals to you from a fun perspective. Smile

And Snotlings are still Snotlings, but man they are fun.

I'd go with Fae. They'd be a good challenge to play, and once properly developed, they could put up the points

And Pygmy edge out Fae by a narrow margin.

Thanks (I think) to everyone who voted. See you in the Exploding Cup!
