I was two touchdowns up and they hadn’t stepped into my half, yet I was going to lose. In previous matches, against Dark Elves, Dwarfs and High Elves, I’d relied on focusing superior numbers of human players around my Ogre, to get support for blocks on the enemy hard targets. Once they were down (knocked out or stunned) I could quickly create a channel through to the endzone for my ball-carrier. My mistake was thinking we could go toe-to-toe with Orcs. Their array of Blitzers and stronger Black Orcs meant that I had to spread my hard hitters more thinly, and couldn’t take them down as quickly as they could my players. Halfway through the match I looked down and saw my injury box full of K.O.ed players and nobody left on the bench. Losing seemed inevitable.
