Following that failure, the AI starts to run into advancing positions
Aaaand they fail a dodge roll
AI re-rolls! It succeeds!
Our ball guarding Black Orc Black Knight gets blitzed
He goes down. What did you expect?
Those in the immediate proximity of getting smacked retreat
The ball carrier himself runs to the right hand side
And their catcher advances to be in the scoring range next turn.
Finally, one high elf is screening our rear guard. They cannot reach the Catcher now.
That about concludes the elven turn #6.
In our turn #6, the first order of business is to decide the order of things. Standing players up and such is the first thing. Then moves that do not include risk.
Finally, with the risky moves, we want to do the most significant move first - especially without re-rolls. For this reason, Scotty blitzes the ball carrier.
And given the elven dodge
, he only manages a push. Goddangit Scotty! (Shoulda blitzed with Mammoth here, he was actually in blitzing range, don't know why I thought he wasn't)
Now that Scotty failed, Mammothtank goes to guard the upper area.
Blackbelt Jones blocks one pesky elf (Blackbelt has Block, so this was relatively unrisky)
Finally, Spoon, would you kindly go breath on the neck of that elf? Given the size of the troll, I don't want to know how that breath smells like.
He actually does.
That's about what we can do, elves do your worst.
The elves first dodge out a player from the upper area of the field. (WTF AI?)
Our blitzer is awake
And it fails. Twice. Turnover
Oh, just when you think you've lost it, something like this happens. Harsh is Blood Bowl.
Mammoth, would you kindly eliminate that one pesky elf?
He does. The ball is caught by Blackbelt Jones! Try to dislodge that, elves!
Spoon, go one square down to reinforce the position
Oh well then, have it your way.
Srihag flattens one elf so that he has difficulties reaching the ball carrier.
Swashmebuckle advances forwards (but not too far to make him a target) so that he is in scoring range.
Scourge politely asks one high elf to lie down.
While Black Knight misses the subtlety of this approach, and rolls double skulls.Turnover
Scotty gets blitzed
And Scourge gets blocked.
However, the elfs are in disarray, and cannot mount offensive against us.
Our eighth turn starts in relative good positions, with elves surrounding the cage. No matter.
Mammoth does what he does best
Noice, that elf is gonna orbit Saturn for a while!
Srihag goes next
Uh didn't I just...
Scotty floors one more elf, and Mad Max engages blitzing mode
Blackbelt, hand over the ball to Swashmebuckle
He makes it. Probably the eighth wonder of the world.
Now Swashme, go score. I know there's one go for it, but do it anyways.
And conveniently just for the half time for maximum psychological effect!
