    Having bought this in the steam sale I started playing it today. Generally finding it quite fun, but with one particular issue that I find massively frustrating.
    I am playing as a Skaven team in the first cup (despite having "won" the cup on points there are apparently playoffs?) and recurrently find I am unable to takle opposing players.
    Now is this a bug or some obscure rule that, having trawled the manual, I am unaware of ?
    My players have not moved, been knocked out etc etc, but whenever I attempt to get them to tackle the opposing team (especially frustrating when it is the player with the ball) I get a "no entry" icon appear.
    I've trawled the official forum, but can't be bothered to sign up to ask this there.
    Anyone know?

    Are the players they are trying to block adjacent? You only get one "blitz" per turn, that is moving then blocking (or vice versa), but every player should be able to perform one block against an adjacent player.

    Also, this league never happened because only one person signed up.

    Sometimes. Sometimes stood out on their own. If there were any discernable pattern I wouldn't find it so frustrating, but it seems utterly random and arbitrary.

    Is it definitely not even allowing you to attempt a block? Is the icon not the 2 red dice that mean the opponent gets to choost the result?

    For clarity, blitz is one player per turn only, not once per player, and the situations I can think of when you can't even attempt a block:

    - When your player has to stand up first (and you've already blitzed)
    - When your player has to move first (and you've already blitzed)

    I haven't heard of any bug that stops you blocking when you should be able to, so I can only assume there's a rule you've missed or misinterpreted.

    ITs OK, Ive figured it. Something to do with moving and tackling ( you will have to forgive me, I grew up with proper football, not this padded rugby stuff). And then went on to win 4 - 0!
    Yay me

    PCG Steam chat denizens need one more person for our league. If you're interested and able to play fairly regularly (a match every day or two, they generally take 60-90 mins), then PM me here or on Steam.
