Talent surfs a target no one else can surf.
Genius surfs a target no one else can see.


On the 4th of February at 21:00 server we have a very special interview for you.

One of the best ever Blood Bowl coaches will be spilling the beans on how to git gud and win it all.


I guarantee to you that after listing to this interview you will:

1) Never loose at blood bowl again
2) Win friends and influence people
3) Get promoted
4) Find all of your lost socks.*



So who could it be? Who is the mysterious legend that will cure all ills and rid the world of odd socks?

Well here's the sting, this is a fundraiser for the server so we need 10 pledges of a donation before we reveal who it is.

Suggested donations are 5 of your currency. So if you are in Europe that's 5 euros, if you live in the US of States that's five cheeseburgers, etc etc.

(Note Italians amongst you cannot claim lira as a valid currency)

Pledge in the comments here https://fumbbl.com/p/blog?c=dentface&id=24993 and when we hit 10 pledges you will find out who it is,
unless, of course I am the unreliable narrator Smile

*clearly this is a joke, somethings are just not possible

I miss them too, old timer here! Very Happy
A cup of coffee didn't cost a fist full of notes, though.
Most commonly, a 1,000 lire note and one or more coins (according to region, in South Italy coffee cups were cheaper than in North Italy).
Now that I think of it, a coffee in Venice could cost a fist full of notes, but that wasn't the average cost! Very Happy

Malmir, surely? I hope so. That man sees shapes. He isn't like the rest of us. Also, a great human being in RL. I have a bracelet that says 'WWMD'.

I hope its MattDakka over Java. Even though Java is my IRL brother, I can't bear to hear his voice anymore. It brings me back to when he convinced our mum to abandon me at a gas station (as a joke he claimed) but then convinced her to take him to the movies and they didn't come back to get me for 27 years. He thinks its hilarious but I can't help think of all that time I missed out on with our late mum.

Yep they asked me and that's quite the write-up they gave me too. There are loads of coaches equally qualified, but they asked me and happy to try and help. So if there's something you want my two cents on, please just submit your question once Dentface states how (see above) and I'll do my best to offer something useful.

Possible areas for questions could be:

Team building: this could include for starting teams of a particular race or more advanced teams including positionals and skill choices etc.

Offence: again could be for a particular race or group of races e.g. bash or elf and how to cope with being against a group type of races.

Defence: same as above

General tactics: when to score early, when to stall, when to stand off, when to press, screening, caging, prioritising, surfing, being surfed (valid tactic) or anything else you can think of.

All of the above are often very different depending on the races involved, the point in the game, the purpose of the game (e.g. tourney) so specific questions will allow more specific answers and hopefully you'll find them useful.

P.S. I can't match my own socks so don't bother asking about laundry.
