I'm quite happy with how the Mixed Teams have been put in place. Blood Bowl has been playing around with mashup teams since the very first edition, and I think this way of doing it has a lot of merit.
But not a lot has been written up on them yet, so I thought I'd start the ball rolling. If you hate the concept of mixed teams, please start another thread - this one is for discussing them as a positive addition to the game.
Anyway, I noticed yesterday that my Undead United team didn't seem to have any available Star Players. Igor - check. Mercenary list players - check. Bribes, Extra Training, Bloodweiser Babes... but none of the Stars that play for those teams.
Is this a general thing? It would make a certain amount of sense if Mixed Teams simply can't take Stars, since their expanded rosters should mean they don't really need them. Or is it a bug? Or is it even that a Star might need to be able to play for ALL sub teams? (There is no Star Player that will play for all four, as it happens...)
Another thing I'm curious about are the team reroll costs. It's 70k for Undead United... but all four sub-teams have that cost anyway. Other clusters will have varying reroll costs (Most of the Good teams are 50k, but Halflings are 60k; Goblins are also 60k, but Ogres are 70k etc).
Has anyone sat down and checked this yet?
Edit: Had a chance to check and the Good team has 50k rerolls and the Small People one has 60k. Didn't have time to set up a a game to look at inducements.
