Offence for Fast Teams
This is the
fun part when playing with fast teams, if you can keep all your players
intact for the whole game, victory will be yours.
Fast teams vs. Strong teams:
The worst thing that can happen when playing against
strong teams with a fast team is that all your players gets knocked
out, injured, or even killed in the first half (who can forget the game
between The Pets of Tzeentz and TTK, after the first half the only Wood
Elf players who were standing were one brave Wardancer and three linemen).
If this doesn`t happen the rest is easy. The best tactic that I`ve found
is the pass-and-run tactic. As the name says you pass the ball and then
run, but there are a few things you have to remember before you do this.
You just can`t enter your opponents half of the field with only one
player, because he will most certainly get knocked down. Instead you
enter your opponents half with about six players. At least two of these
players should have an agility of four and/or should preferably be a
catcher. These two players act as receivers and the rest of the players
are there to protect them. The rest of the players in your team are
there to protect the thrower and to hold back the opponents. Then all
you have to do is make the pass and run for the end zone. The danger
with this tactic is that of something goes wrong the opposing team will
have a wonderful chance to score a touchdown them selves. The only thing
you can do to prevent this is to use some of the players in your team
to act as defenders.

Fast teams vs. Fast teams:
When you play against equally fast
teams you can use the example shown to you above. But it might be a
bit harder because you will not be able to out run your opponent. You
can also use the tactic when you form a small cage around your thrower
and move up the field, and when you find a gap in the defense you can
either make a handover to a player who's standing a bit further down
the field or you can pass a player in your team who is in a good spot
on the field.
