Asperon's take on ALL teams

by Asperon Thorn (Specialist Games Forum)

General

Human Teams

Humans
This team is an all around decent team. Thier strength lies in that they have no strengths or weaknesses. Everything is a 3+ roll. They have Movement 8 players, access to a Big Buy, access to all skills besides mutations. This team relies on its positionals but has enough of them to do what it needs to. In my opinion it is the best team to learn the game with because it can run, pass, bash, or finesse the ball into the endzone. After playing this team you can decide which part you like best and choose a team that is better for it. It is also a great team to revisit if you are bored with the one you chose, as it is a team that is decent with the style you like but refreshingly good at the parts you couldn’t do well before. It’s a good team throughout the TR ranges and don’t let anyone tell you different.

The Chaos Strategies

by Brian Giese (Blood Bowl Central)

Chaos

Some Blood Bowl teams have a variety of players to choose. Some have passers, catchers. Linemen, and then some elite player like wardancer, or witch elves. Chaos simply has Beastman and chaos warriors. Chaos does have 1 great star player and one decent one. Lord Borak, is indeed one tough S.O.B., but Grashnak Blackhoof is big and tough but has a flaw I feel most star players have. No block.

The Basics

by Stephen Babbage with Coach Blacknife (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

To me, Blood Bowl is a fun strategy game: yes, the most important element is strategy. In our league a team winning by luck alone is very rare; obviously luck does affect gameplay and can help determine the outcome of a game, but if the Coach is not using strategies and intelligence to win then they’ll find it difficult.

Undead

So you want to coach an undead team? What you need to know.

Ah, I see you all are budding necromancers, fresh off the cemeteries with your degree in necromantic magic and you are chomping at the bit to raise the fallen remains of some players and think you’re going to rise to the top of your chosen league without a sweat.

It’s not going to be that easy.

Human

Blood Bowl is played across the entire Old World with hundreds of teams from all races fighting for glory, but by far the most common race playing Blood Bowl today are the ubiquitous Humans. There is something about Blood Bowl that stirs the soul of the average man or woman and they apply in droves to join teams across the length and breadth of the Empire.

The Orcs

Orcs

Most of the suggestions involve 11 players and at least as many Blitzers as BOBs. I’m going to suggest something else:

Vampire Strategies

by Reinier van Noort (Paradigm Central)

Vampire

After having played Bloodbowl for some time (ever since 3rd edition was re-issued, somewhere in the second half of the nineties), I consider myself an experienced BB player, having played Humans/Orcs in the very beginnings, Dwarfs (for a very long time), Chaos Dwarfs, Chaos, Dark Elves and now Vampires in 4th edition.

After guiding my beloved Vampires through only 9 games, of which I must admit I only won the last 3, I’m already starting to be brave enough to put some information on the net regarding how to play with Vampires.

Dwarf Strategy

by humbe (FUMBBL)

Dwarves

Assuming you are tougher than your opponent, which should hopefully be the case for most opponents, the boring, probably unpopular, but obvious dwarf strategy goes like this.
