It's funny for me to hear you say that you feel that dash teams require more skill. Having coached more dash teams, I've always thought that bash teams require more thought and consideration because of the positioning considerations you mention with dwarves. I've recently started coaching my first dwarf team, and find that my head hurts as I consider the board each turn. Anyway, good luck in your journey with the rats!

This is my take on it.
Pounce when the time is right and let Nuffle decide. Have fun, then die. Then buy more rats.

I understand the point Gettym, but bash is sort of "in the box" thinking. Just tag a weaker player forcing them to dodge and just marching towarths the endzone in a cage. You know you cant do anything amazing so just bashing and putting up a wall or cage blood bowl 101. But with dash you can reach the ballcarrier almost every turn and do amazing plays but you have to learn when to do it. And with bash you have 10+ armor so you dont have to protect your best players but with dash you have to protect the stars until it is their time to shine. I guess it just different sides of a coin or differnt states if mind but apparently I have to go there and force myself to understand that side of things. Maybe I will become a better coach or just stop playing lol :/

Yeah, I definitely know what you mean. In the few games I've played with dwarf so far, I'm noticing there are a lot of things, like removals, that I just don't have to worry about anymore. But then somewhere around turn 6, I'm like, wait, how are we ever going to reach the end zone?

I think with skaven and other teams, hirolling is the best strategy.

Also, @The_Murker, that write up on skaven is awesome:
I've never thought of it that way, but it's so true.

hehe yeah,, TY Murker for the insight in the (short) life of skavenplayers. Hirolling and calculating the risc in problematic and require some thought. I guess thats where I will struggle haha
