    We seem to keep missing each other and I'm worrying it's gonna hold the league up now :S Are you free say about 7:30-8:00pm uk time on weds? If not, what times/days are you free rest of the week and I'll see when I'm available...

    (The number of times I get home from work and see you on steam as being offline for <40 min and then never back on now is getting rediculous )

    Early game they have a real advantage with the dodge skill. And indeed i performed quite well in my first two games, but i've struggled against any upgraded or special players.

    I've wasted chances to gain SP points (easy passing, simple moves etc) and have frankly, been butfucked by the dice.

    In hindisght i think i should have gone for a hardier team with a star player who could dodge/sidestep etc, rather than the glass cannons i have now.

    I'm slowly getting to grips with the tactics and play styles, however i'm still not positioning my teams well.

    that and i hate this game.
    Oddly enough I still quite like the Skaven. I think my error occured right at the start with no re-rolls, and having MY ENTIRE FUCKING TEAM MURDERED BY SYPHALLITIC INBRED DWARFS didn't help. Literally half my lineup is made up of temporarys, so any experience they get doesn't count, and with an almost exclusively basic level one team now starting to go up against level 3's I will never get back in the competition.
    I started a different Skaven Team in one of the general leagues (all this waiting around is torture on Skaven. Shot life span. Especially so with murderous dwarfs around!) and have won two out of three matches! (Only lost because my idiot sister, having completely forgotten my brthday, now wants me to look after her dog, phoned me up in the closing turns of the match. My own fault, should have guessed that she wanted something and not answered)
    Still I can fire up Icewind dale, make a party of Dwarfs, take them out into the wilderness and have them murdered by Kobolds.
    I fucking hate this game.

    That's my problem now too- team full of temps so no skills amassing.

    May try a general league too

    What is the best way to level up your players? I have only got one orc to level 2.

    For those that missed the livestream, the brutal match between the mighty dorfs of the Karak Ajak Krushers and the rather smelly nurgle team The Nurgle Burglers is here:

    [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cj10NqO8Imo&list=PLtfh3Qm3vne53xmpL609kofV 3SUWH5Dkj"]linky to youtubes[/URL]

    If anyone wants me casting their matches, give me a heads up here a day or two before hand and I'll see what I can organise

    Excellent, I have the Nurgle Burglars next so I have a chance to scout him and see how good he is! Mwa ha ha! I am free any weeknight really Burglar so I am sure we can arrange something, look forward to duffing some weird Nurglings up!

    Edit: Have watched the match now, and I have a bit of advice for you Ctrlphr34k. Since you are dwarves you should read up on the rules of blocking here ([url]http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1310006_BB_Art_of_Blocking.pdf[/url]) since it will help you learn how to more effectively punch dudes! Though I have you after the Burglars so I should have waited to tell you that :P
