Round 6 of the MBBL, for the Gavendorf Griffins. Up against a Necromancer team called "Screaming in the Night" (Run by Luke.). So far in the past five rounds I have had 3 losses and 2 forfeits, so not a stella start by any means.
With a low turn for the game of only 15000 fans. The "Griffins" had a 100k incentive which allowed for a little extra training. Even though the crowed was smallish they made themselves felt by throwing a rock and Ko'n one of my Catchers. This was going to set a bit of a trend for the Humans. The first half was a hard fought grinding game which saw 3 Humans in the K'o Box. The "Griffins" drive was easily blunted after Von Drake, the teams Thrower and captain had his head removed by a Flesh Golem; all the Apothecary could say was "Well, my jobs done here!" and the "Scream" scuttled one in on turn 6. And to make matters worse they got an extra player out of my player.
The 2nd half was another back and forth affair where the "Griffins" got on top and caused 2 casualties which allowed for some open spaces and was able to get through for a TD by turn 6. That effectively ended the game after that and ended in a stalemate.
It was the first time that I have used an Ogre, well in the past 10 or so years anyway and I would say he was close to best on ground by passing all his rolls for bone head, so therefore played havoc with the opposition.
But with another death in the team it makes it 3 deaths in 6 games. Still not as good as what the Norseberg raiders had but still worrying.
Also Luke was a great opponent, friendly and talkative which is always good, but doesn't always happen.
