Blood Bowl: Match Report- Dark Elf vs Orks
« on: August 16, 2021, 04:59:38 PM »

Note: This game is using the BB16 rules

Lord Summervale: Welcome to Freebooter Field in the Deep North- Southern Regional Conference.  Today we will be watching the opening games of the season between the Dark Elf Black Guards and the Ork Skulsmash Reeverz here on Cabalvision IV.  As always, I will be joined in the booth by my good friend and great Blood Bowl mind, Mad Johan. 

Mad Johan: Thanks Lord Summervale, always good to be here.

Lord Summervale: It feels like only yesterday that the season came to a close, and a new one is all ready upon us.  Why, I haven't aged a bit!  Last year, late in the season the Black Guards sailed into the Deep North- Southern Regional Conference in order to play Blood Bowl. 

Mad Johan: It was a big accomplishment as the conference is land locked!

Lord Summervale: The Black Guard had a promising opening start against the Elf Superiors.  However, the injury to their team captain Mori-Thai the Velvet Crush led to a mediocre season overall.  However, thanks to the favor of Khaine and some time spent in a Cauldron of Blood, she is back and so is her team!

They have travelled into the dark lands and here to Freebooter Field to take on their first opponent of the season, the Skulsmash Reeverz led by Grimgrod Rotgut.  The Orks have been a veteran team in the conference.  They have a decent record and a dangerous fan base.  Mad Johan, what do you think the keys to the game are going to be? 

Mad Johan: The Ork game is easy.  Smash enough Elves into the turf to send most of them to the dug-out, then walk in for the score.  This is a game the Skulsmash Reeverz have done well against many other teams in the Conference.  I expect to see more of the same style. 

Mori-Thai has to to be a bit more precise.  They need to use the precise application of force to create an opening, and then use their speed to capitalize on it.  That is a weakness in the Ork team.  However, it will be tough to find a weak spot to apply force at.  All these Orks are tough. 

Lord Summervale: Indeed Johan.  You are a great Blood Bowl mind.  The two team captains have gone to the center of the field  for the coin toss.....

.... it looks like the Black Guards have won the toss and elected to receive. 

Mad Johan: A good strategy as that ensures their best players are available for the drive, before the Orks start taking them out.

Great stuff! The Black Gaurd can go all the way this season if Raz al Slam can stay fit and isn't tempted away by the bigger clubs.
