Hello!

First of all, I would like to say thank you Brent for this wonderful game!

I have the following question. Can I use block skills, for example Blitz, to tackle the ball carrier? I think that block and tackle are different things and therefore you cannot use Blitz to tackle, but I would like to be sure.

And another one, what happens if the ball carrier performs a block and he fails it? Is he pushed back?Is he tackled?

Thank you and go Trucks!arrrh

Hello!

For the Blitz tackle question. No blitz is used to block not tackle. However, there is a skill called diving tackle that works the same way as blitz but used to tackle instead (be careful, if you fail the tackle you fall down).
Note that in a similar fashion, block +1 isn't used for tackling, but tackle +1 is.

If the ball carrier fails a block he isn't tackled but he is knocked back (and in prime position to be tackled as the opponent has a free activation).

Hope that helps!

Lumberjacks Goooooooooooo!

Just to add to this, I think there could be some situations where it might be preferable to block the ball-carrier rather than tackle, such as if the action is being performed by a player with block+1 and there are no unoccupied spaces for the ball-carrier to be pushed back into which would result in him being knocked down instead.

You're welcome!

All of the answers you received are correct. I'll add these:
- a critical success when blocking a player with the ball will result in a knockdown/fumble
- a critical failure when blocking with the ball carrier will result in a knockdown/fumble

I thought the rules said a critical success when blocking the ballcarrier resulted in a fumble?

Thank you very much for helping me!

I also thought that. Actually I thought the following:


- a critical success when blocking a player with the ball will result in a knockdown + fumble
- a critical failure when blocking with the ball carrier will result in a knockdown + fumble
