I do not like the change to underworld. Not one bit.

I like it on paper, but I need to try the new UW roster in actual play.
A Gutter Runner is obviously better than a Blitzer: MA 9 AG 4, M access (although with a double) to take Horns or Very Long Legs, 1TTD improved, and he can be used as ball carrier, hell yes!
Deep stalling with UW is easier now.

Just think of the grandfathered teams playing briefly with 8 rats, a troll, and 2 gobbos

pure bliss

From past experience I'd say it might have already happened and we haven't noticed yet.

More seriously, we can probably expect it to be implemented anytime between now and the physical release of the rules

Any guesses on who the journeymen for Overworld will be?

Gaining a GT is awesome but the loss of a blitzer seams poor. I think I need to see them to decide if i like it. Very clear buff to 100/110 tv tourni games and not much for long term play.
Saying that they are low tier, so they are not really designed to be good after 50 games so maybe the sprue list has worked out ok.

Yeah, that's it. I'm done with GW for good.

Annoying that the rules change again because of what they had lying around. I don't mind the forces of order mix team, good to use existing models but I would hope the rules and mix of models should be based off of what makes a good game of blood bowl. They can mess around with them but the underworld feels like they made the list purely based on the pieces of plastic they had lying around.

To be fair, they’re now a better team.

No, they're not.

Removing one of the three durable pieces on the most fragile team in the game and replacing it with another fragile piece is awful.

Lizards got a buff. UW get hamstrung. GW is an asylum run by the inmates.

Chameleon is not a buff Smile
I'm surprised coaches expect a well thought out balanced approach to this game by GW. Evidence shows they are no longer capable of making decisions about the game based on logic and game mechanics.

Its financial pure and simple, and quite honestly it always has been when they've been responsible for it.

Chameleon is entirely additional. It can be ignored and it is the same team. It gives new options and detracts in no way, thus it is a buff.

Yes, yes, they are all horrible people. Is my new team of human troll slayers ready? Six pages is a long wait.

I don't like the new UW, it's a huge nerf for perpetual, so often even 2 Blitzers are not enough.

It's certainly a boost for NAF style tourneys where the 2nd blitzer is usually a star player anyway. The GR addition and the saved 20k from the 2nd thrower makes them stronger.

Grandfathered teams will be really fun while they last, better get your 2nd throwers while you still can Wink
