3 For me too.

Liar, you don't need advice at all. You're a guru!
Posted by Chainsaw on 2014-03-10 17:17:04
Version 3. Extra player is better than an apo that may not work, and magic healing solves attrition.

Strip and tackle on your dancers.
Posted by Cavetroll on 2014-03-10 17:18:06
Have to agree with 3 also
Posted by JanMattys on 2014-03-10 17:19:13
Yep strip and tackle. Also Kick and Leader.
Last two skills, I'm a bit torn between Block, Sidestep and Dt on the catchers, in any combination.

But the biggest doubt is still the roster.

Version 1 is TV 1100

Version 2+3 is only 11 players and TV 1030

I assume Version 2+3 is 7 linos each, and therefor TV 1100?

I would go:
2 WD (Strip ball and Sure hands)
3 Catchers (1 or 2 with Block, or 1 with Side step)
1 Thrower (with Leader)
4 Linos (1 with Wrestle)
1 Treeman (with Guard or Grab or nothing)
1 rr + Leader
1 Apo

I would like to see a 4th version with 2 reroll, apo, less catchers.
Skills anyway:
Leader on thrower
Strip ball on Dancer1
Tackle on Dancer2

Next 3 skills:
Kick on Lino
Wrestle on Lino
Wrestle on Lino

"I would like to see a 4th version with 2 reroll, apo, less catchers."
I also meant 12 players of course.
Posted by Purplegoo on 2014-03-10 18:01:21
The standard 1.1 TT build with that skill set is as follows.

2 WD (Strip on one, Tackle or Frenzy on the other to taste, day one)
Thrower (day one Leader)
3 Catchers
Tree
Linos to 11
2 RR.

The day two skills could include a Sure Hands Catcher, Wrestle Linemen or Block Linemen. A double is Guard on the Catcher.

If you are going to take Kick, 3 games is too short a timescale to see benefit, on average. It's a day one skill, and it's hard to justify not skilling a WD or dropping Leader.

I'd take Strip / Tackle / Leader and Wrestle / Wrestle / Sure Hands or Block at a push.

Good luck!

In a TT tournament, by the way, the Apo is better than the 12 th man in > 95% of situations. Saving the vital KO or getting the Badly Hurt back is almost always better than a benched player who is always a Lino. When your Strip Wardancer snakes a dodge and hurts himself, the Apo is always a better option than the Lineman on the bench. The one situation where the 12 th man might be preferable that springs to mind is maybe Lizardmen. There is a debate there: keep a Saurus in the game, or have a Skink gaurenteed for your drive second half. It’s a debate.

I think the same is true online as well, but I’d rather win than preserve a team.

You only get 3 skills. Why take leader? Why not max out on catchers and just spam dodge all over? Oppos with only 3 skills will have little block and next to no tackle, dodge is king.

Blodge catchers you mean Sage?
Posted by C3I2 on 2014-03-11 01:13:19
Two, blodge catchers and one SB wardancer I guess. It would depends on the oppos, if they all pick surehands (races) or not.
Posted by Jeffro on 2014-03-11 03:04:43
I will echo Purplegoo's thoughts on favoring the Apo over a 12th man. Not to say you safe it for a RIP... rather you use it on a key BH or to keep a KO'd player on the pitch in a key situation. Amen, goo... apo for the purpose of winning, not for team preservation.
