With the changes to Sneaky Git and bombs, should we bring back the Mega-Stars? Keeping in mind that removing them is a house rule, and removing them was more about Snotlings being OP than anything else.

The point of inducements is to bridge the gap between two unequally valued teams and for this reason mega-stars should absolutely never return. They are welcome to return once they stop being the optimal way to play blood bowl and don't confer a noticeable advantage to the player inducing them.

Also ban Cindy.

Even with the nerfed bombs rules, you would ban Cindy?

If you ban Dribblesnot you have to ban Cindy. I can't see how this is a controversial statement.

Or if we're house-ruling make it so only Flings/Gobs can induce them

But Mega Stars also include Morg, Griff, Hakflem etc... they're used by 0TV snotling builds. Its not just about Bomber

I guess the question I was putting: did nerfing bombs and sneaky git make removing mega stars largely redundant? Have Snotlings, for example, been nerfed enough?

I tied for first in a table top tournament using Goblins with Morg. In the ruleset, I basically had one troll, one Chainsaw, rookie goblins and Morg.

I pitch cleared a human team.

The issue with Mega Stars isnt just bombs... you can game TV to fit them in (even on fumbbl by using low cost linemen) and they're overpowered for their price.

Bomma Dribblesnot spam is a big issue, and its been abated somewhat by the FAQ, but he's not the only reason the Mega Stars have been banned.

Snotlings are still in really good spot, ogres also. Low cost linemen is extremely good rule.

Give gobbos and halflings lowcost linemen also.

Everybody happy.

Those nerfs are not nearly enough to bring back the mega-stars. They need to nerf the stars themselves.
