Days of old

With the new release of Blood Bowl last year I was wondering about a couple of things.

 As much as I love Blood Bowl now I very much miss the 2nd edition of the game.

 I miss that each team had set positions on their roster like lineman, blitzers, throwers and blockers. Why did they add things like troll slayers and such? They Warhammered Blood Bowl for the worse.

I liked in 2nd edition that you could roll up your own star players with the star player book one of my fav things.

I have 2 copies of this awesomeness but stupidly cut the cards out :-(

I was not a fan of the 3rd edition miniatures I thought the 2nd edition ones were way better (but I may be old fashioned)
3rd edition Orcs with Black Orcs added for Warhammerness
2nd edition Orc's Much better with Blitzers, Catchers ! (yes orcs used to have catchers as well.)

Kickers meant something in the game back in 2nd edition. Miss them as well.

You didn't need to roll to pick up a ball, these were the days when a failed action didn't end your turn. You could also move your players down the field and block someone.

I do love the new edition but if anybody is feeling in a 2nd edition mood look me up for a game I would really love a game.

P.S the pitch was better as well I miss the old one.
