Wow! When you say soon, your really not lying! This CH subscription is worth every penny!
Blood Bowl is HARD. The whole ethos of the game is â€œWhy fight a fair fight when you can fight an unfair one?â€
I played the tabletop game a bit but until you play a lot of games on a computer version you donâ€™t realise how tough the odds are for the team with the ball. This is completely intentional. Most basic single dice rolls in the game have at least a 1 in 6 or often 1 in 3 chance of ending your turn immediately. These are terrible odds and most experienced players wonâ€™t chance any action unless the chances of failure are at least 1 in 12 with a reroll unless they have done every other â€˜safeâ€™ action first.
Blocking is probably the biggest danger area and the reason why Block is the best skill in the game. By itself it halves the chance of a turnover on any block. Making a tackle with a player that doesnâ€™t have block â€“ regardless of the number of dice should be regarded with great suspicion and is best left till the end of the turn â€“ if done at all.
Look for every possible way to use safe actions to make risky actions easier. Maximise your assists before blocking. Use a safe block to push opposing players away before making a risky pickup. Most of all â€“ use your time. Donâ€™t go for that Hail Mary pass if youâ€™ve got 6 turns remaining.
These factors work for you in your opponents turn as well. Support your ball carriers and force your opponents to dodge around your players. Sometimes itâ€™s better to avoid making a block in your turn and force your opponent to do it theirs or make a risky dodge instead.
Finally Blood Bowl has ALWAYS been lethal. Sometimes you just get unlucky and lose half your team in the first two matches. Be prepared to start a new team if your first one gets pounded early.
