That was...odd. weird dice, weird match. First half, I receive, standard Norse drive up the field, causing six kos but no cas. I score turn eight, line up for 3 man kicking, and it all goes nuts. Kick-off is a rock, kills a lineman. First block, broken neck on a lineman. Secong block, groin strain on a lino. Third block, lino kod. No matter, seven or eight opponent players kod at this point, numbers even. Nope. Cue another round of pain, thankfully limited to kos this time. Dunham gets a chance to break free for an equaliser, if he makes a couple rolls. He goes for it. He makes them, and he's through! Just a gfi with reroll to score...a 1. Reroll...timer runs out, cant reroll, stunned! Norse regroup to regain the ball and make the game safe, culminating in a six man brawl round the ball which somehow a snotling wins by knocking down a Norse berseker! No problem, three dice in Favour blitz on the carrier, with frenzy, with reroll. It works, skull-pow-both (with block) I debate for one fatal second if I should pushback...time runs out, first dice is used, skull! Same bloody snotling! Dunam scored not long after to equalise, and the game just became a brawl as players dropped left and right happily punching anyone in reach til the final whistle, when the survivors tripped off for a drink or twenty.
1-1, about the right result I think, and a highly enjoyable game which served as an excellent example of just how quickly snap decisions have to be made to work this fast.
One thing I would say, which can't be helped but is annoying, is that of you block a players with side step, a couple seconds of your time expire while the skill is resolved. Not a big deal...unless you're blocking half a dozen snotlings! Be aware it does make a noticeable difference when this occurs and it may also happen with stuff like diving tackle, pass block etc. Just a heads up.
Anyway, my first ip game that I didn't lose! Gg Dunam, hope to play you again.
