Quick vote which will take effect next season. The current rule states that you may not hire a wizard when playing against a team which can never have one.

Just my two cents..

The game has been designed a certain way to ensure balanced play (it is BB after all). Undead and Necromantic teams always have a wizard who comes free. This is an obvious advantage over any other team which has to pay 50k for a one shot attack that may or may not work (about 50/50). If the game says it's alright, then I think it's a little nieve to attempt to rebalance the game yourself. With the current ruleset I think it is a clear advantage to the undead teams.

bear in mind the 'undead' wiz is more a replacement for apo's which last forever once purchased.

now, in a closed group these stats are irrellevant, as the coaching skills come in to play a lot more often than than the actual team, you will find situations where, for example, as a coach i can never beat th0r, or the performance of Benninstein's Necros was phenomenal, which completely contradicts the tables...

however the tables are a good place to start for analysing, as buying a wizard is equally as feasible at low TR as at high TR, and in all the categories, even with the possibility of a wizard, you can see that the undead team is always in the top ten teams...

having the choice of buying a wizard is the same as buying a star player, it might, or might not affect the result of the game...

part of the randomness...

a different perspective, Eshins cant take wizards for a reason, which i think everyone is grateful for... maybe udead cant take wizards for a reason too...
