Orcs are massively overrated in tournament play. They are a bad team because they are slow and there are plenty of stats that show this. Give them a human thrower and a catcher and they would go through the roof. Same for dwarfs, even if they are somewhat better than orcs to begin with.
I always figured the orc stats were skewed by the fact that most new players play orcs

They probably are, but it is only part of the story.

We have buffed the orcs significantly in Denmark for many years and they still don’t really perform too well. The current level is 8 skills vs 6 skills for top tier and there are no complaints about it. One year they got 7+1(double) and I was the only one involved with making the rules that thought that it was too much, and even though all the Danish Power players had played the team for a year I struggled to make a data based case for a nerf.
I actually think the impact of the n00b effect is smaller than I have thought for years, but I have not done any real analysis on it. So it is of cause big part speculation.

the World Cup Rules orc stats are remarkable and the general stats are also very bad. Only the wonder kid really does well with them. Smile

Hmmm,

With the combination of Loner and Animosity this may be the first team I choose not to use. Perhaps use all humans and dwarf linemen or even the slayer. But even then your rerolls will be used almost exclusively for the humans since you don't want to waste them on loners.

I am not sure I like the Old World Alliance.

I don't know if it is okay to post the roster yet, but if someone gets the issue and can PM me the list I would appreciate it.

The spike is hilarious. They suggest a roster with no human catcher or thrower and a second with no ogre. And then for the progression they say it is hard to give advice for how to develop the team.

Should just throw together any 2 random sprues , give everyone either animosity or loner. Could get some interesting mixes.

Lizard/High elf anyone ?

Isn't Old World Alliance a team from a very early Blood Bowl edition? Not just a random thought bubble?
