Norse vs Dwarves are not too bad normally if you can split them up so that they can't take advantage of their Guard. The Block and Guard you normally encounter isn't great since it negates the Norse's Block and (small) strength advantage and AV7 against Dwarves is asking for trouble.

Howeever, if you use Frenzy well you can outposition them (and possibly get some crowd surfs happening). If you use it badly you can find yourself making 2d against Blocks with your second Frenzy block.

The reason I got hammered by Tribal's 8x MB Orcs at Eucbowl was due to him having too much ST for me to handle.

The Dwarves without Guard lose that edge and it makes it much easier to roll a corner and go around them. And they are even slower then Orcs.

Rabid with only 6 players (Lizards) almost made a break away form them.

As far as 4x Frenzy, I'd be more likely to have a Snow Troll and 2x Ulfs. The Troll would help to get some CAS (or at least stuns) back and also to roll the corners. But hey, the proof is in the pudding and I was playing Ogres so *shrug* ..... :P

Thankyou to my Bye coaches Tribal, Sangraal, Grumpsh and Thomsy.

I'll edit this post with info about the chess clocks but I think they were well recieved.

It wasnt something I acknowledged on the day as there were no awards for them but...

Most Touchdowns was Babs with 11
Most Casualties was Gnome with 19 (8 of them being the pitch clear on me)
Best Defense was Gnome (4 games) and Tribal (3 games) with only 2 TDs scored against them
Toughest was Gnome who only suffered 1 Casualty against him.

Thanks for coming.

So in hindsight maybe the zons didn't perform as badly as thought on the day.

I think with the mb thing it is all about knocking em down and out strength a team like nurgle would do alright enough regen to make iot work wile block up the warrios and hope they roll some foul appearance.
Also having a few players with wrestle is a fun way to make a dwarf coach crazy dwarves on the gound = your screwed

I'm not trying to be a pain or anything, but when can we expect results to be entered onto the NAF site?

I'm shocked that I somehow slotted into 17th place for High Elves in Aus... I mean, huh?
Next tourney for me looks like GOM '12, so bring on 15th place or higher!

Yeah, I'm a little confused too - not by my placing, but that the CR changes don't seem to have applied. That's waiting on Babs to approve maybe? Either way I'm sure it'll work itself out.

The results go in but requires a NAF admin to approve them before they get applied to the final result.
