How does it work? Description says that he can receive assist to a stand up roll? What the hell is stand up roll?

It "costs" 3 movement to stand up, so if you have less than that (like Treemen) you must make a stand-up roll and roll a 4+. That is where the assist would come into play.

Does it work similarly to a block assist (i.e. +1 to the AG roll for each adjacent teammate that is not in an opponent's tackle zone)?

You are not adding AGI to a block assist, but STR. But otherwise yes.

Thanks for answer. So basically Wood Elf Treemen can't be assisted and is more clunky than Halfing Treemen? Weird.

Well, Wood elf treemen lives in the woods so they can't really move around much anyway, while halfling treemen live in the Shire, where there's more space, so they are more agile..

Wood Elves are a very good team with excellent players, they do not need any help. Generally they do not even need the Treeman. Halflings are a crappy team with some of the worst players and need the treemen to have any chance.

Yeah noone understands that they need a snack break every quarter. Oh wait, there are no quarters in Blood Bowl. That explains their losing streak...

BTW I bet their favourite treemen is an apple tree ;-)

As a point of order though, I will point out that there was an Errata released that took the Timmm-ber skill away from the Treeman on the Wood Elf teams.

Yup, that's where that Halfing discussion came from.
