There have been some improvements in my tactical playing since my last game! YAY! The learning curve for competitive Blood Bowl may be erratically steep but it feels like I’m getting somewhere despite losing another match. I managed to control the board more than usual, caused a lot of casualties (it is the Dwarven way after all!) and even managed to make two breaks for the end zone with both being stopped at the last moment.
Playing against an Elven Union team made for a surprisingly balanced match against my Dwarves. While the Lovehaven Dancers could move a lot and easily get the ball into position, they are very….squishy. Five casualties inflicted in a game squishy. My opposing coach, Colin kept me on my toes with some spectacular moves, especially when he quickly turned my failed attempt to score a touchdown into one of his own. Something I will be looking out for in future games against pesky elf teams! The second touchdown came from some Nuffle induced chaos in the form of a Pitch Invasion which took out my rearward ball handling (heh) players. The Dancers quickly sprinted down the board and after a messy skirmish got the ball and scored.
