Part 2: Match 2 results and buy options

Current teamroster

So that went pretty well, we ended up with 80k gold, +1 in fan factor and Kozilek earned himself a skill roll. Which means we have some stuff to decide on. Let's start with the skill roll.

This is our guy as he looks right now, he's get a bit fancier once we decide on what skill we want to give him. I did not roll a double, but there's still a lot of stuff to choose from even if we can't access agility or passing based skills. Kozilek can pick from the following skills.

That's a lot to choose from, so I'll just go over my top three picks and tell you why I like em. You're of course still free to vote for whatever skill you want.

This is an excellent skill, it means that Kozilek is immune to the Both Down result on the block die, which in turn means that he can use that result to knock down opposing players that do not have block. That's most other players with the except of most teams blitzers.


Guard ensure that Kozilek will always give assist when another team mate is blocking someone as long as he's in the blocked players tackle zone. This is great on the LoS and really annoying from the other team.

Mighty Blow
Might Blow adds +1 to either the armor roll or the injury roll. This is great for knocking out other players and earning even more SPP for casing the opposing team. It does however also mean that most other coaches would want to kill him if possible. Then again he's a Chaos Warrior and is hard to beat up so it's not that big of an issue.

Ethan says: I back BLOCK because it is our first man to level up and we need it real bad! Also now he can crush dudes on more rolls of the dice!
cKnoor says: While I actually agree with Ethan I'm going to go for Mighty Blow just to put the fear in the other team.

Please vote for your favorite pick!

Let's buy shit!
We've got a bunch of money (160k in fact) and it's burning a hole in my pocket, so I suggest we spend it. We can either buy:

A reroll: 120k gold

Or maybe another dude.

We're already at the limit for Chaos Warriors though so we can only buy a few Beastmen or a Minotaur.
Since we're down one guy next match I suggest skipping on the reroll and buying some more dudes. I would probably buy two beastmen, but I'm pretty sure this is going to be a landslide for getting a Minotaur and I'm fine with that.

Vote like right now!

Last but not least, I'm going to need someone to play against in my next match so if you're interested post a team at around 1100 - 1200 team value and your contact information (skype is good so we can talk during the game) and I'll try and get in contact with those teams that I think would make a good game. It might also be a good idea to specify timezone and availability, I'm hoping for a game this weekend though so timezones should be less of an issue.
The rest of you without a team may back a team if you really want to see me play that team or that coach.

I'll leave the voting up for about 24 hours or so, the longer we have the vote open the longer we'll have to wait for the next game. Challenger can of course challenge me even after the voting has ended.
