Are there any races you refuse to use and why ???

Postby HC-Vanselow » 25 May 2013, 02:51

:?: I'm wondering if there's any other Coaches who refuse to use particular races in the game and why ??? As well as races you've attempted to use, but retired from knocking your head against the wall with ???.

I wholeheartedly will never use Orcs due to them being one of the biggest bandwagon teams out there, High Elves because of that ridiculously poofy laugh passed of as a touchdown celebration and Nazi salute, Wood Elves because they're the Hippy Ass Sissies of Blood Bowl and that's it for that portion.

Teams I've retired include Norse, Skaven, Ogres and Vampires.

1. Once other teams develop their blocking skills, the widespread AV 7 appears to become a liability.
2. Skaven are initially awesome with some skilled up Gutter Runners, but the ongoing fragility of linemen proves detrimentally troublesome for keeping numbers on the Astrogranite.
3. I'm fascinated with developing Ogres, but "Pee Wee" M'Grashackle on my human team, the Citadel Centurions, is enough and the impish Snotlings AV 5 will have your numbers depleting quickly.
4. I've tried using the Vampires on numerous occasions without any success as some "Pile On" Chaos Players usually wreck all the Thralls leaving the bloodsucking bastards thirsty and roaming the crowd for their fix.

:High Elves because of that ridiculously poofy laugh passed of as a touchdown celebration and Nazi salute,.
A raised fist is not a Nazi salute, please don't write incorrect things.
From wikipedia: "A Nazi salute is performed by extending the right arm to at least eye level, and straightening the hand so that it is parallel to the arm."
Notice the bit "straightening the hand so that it is parallel to the arm", then watch again the High Elf TD celebration and you'll see the blatant difference.

Chaos Dwarves - because of their ugly hats.
Lizardmen - because they are too overpowered.

:lol: How could I have forgotten about the Chaos Dwarves and not to mention Demons of Khorne and Underworld teams which all contribute to the reason I haven't purchased Chaos Edition yet.

please don't write uncorrect things
Potential sig line :D

As for teams, I've tried a few. Turns out I like to play conservative bash. I like positional defence and prefer a 2-0 or 1-0 to a 4-3. Horses for courses, I guess.

Any elves. I am long time hater of most elves in any game, setting, story, etc. Also a fervent player of DND and warhammer games where elves are simply OP most of the time. Accentuated by the fact that my mordheim group is filled with ppl who absolutely want to play unnoficial elves warband which are over the top.

Dark Elves - I just cannot stand the animations
Ogres - I don't have the nerves to see so many Snotlings die
Dwarfes/ChaosDwarfes - just don't appeal to me
Goblins - not a fan of playing with weapons (I really like to SEE them play though)
Halflings - just NO

*ponders*
That's about it, I think.

Khorne, because it's a crap designed team, and not proper BB.

I thought you thought it was a well-designed team with bad fluff...
