I know some people will look at No SA's and be like lolwut? But I've seen a lot of WL/ top pro coverage and even INT builds that most dot builders don't really touch SAs unless it's to +1 it from CEQ, I've also seen around the forums that SA's don't really matter much for LBs so I decided to use what people would put into their SA tree on additional abilities that aid in coverage (hence being a coverage LB) I've never seen this done before, but I'm sure it has been because it seems like a pretty obvious/normal thing to do.

Criticism and critiques are encouraged, I've been playing GLB since like 2009/10 or something lol when I was young and this is the first time I've decided to take dot building serious/actually have a clue in what I'm doing.

Coordinators, could you let me know if this is a type of build you'd look for and if not what would be the turnoff point?

Thanks in advance guys.

Also is it possible to even have 3 additional abilities? I know 2 for sure is, I've never seen 3. Just a random idea that popped up that I wanted to experience with.

yes it is possible. the 1st is free when you create the dot. the 2nd costs 35 BTs. the 3rd costs 70 BTs. a 4th would cost 105 BTs. a 5th would be 140 BTs. I'm pretty sure that's the limit or Glossy Eyes would have more.

So basically it's trying to figure the value of a few extra levels in a skill or two (or three) vs the value of SA's and what they do. Does having a higher skill mitigate the need for a SA (or more)? That's basically what the difference is so let's try a comparison.
(Caveat; I'm not a fan of the Coverage Archetype for LB's because the SA's in the SA tree don't change... but the Coverage has one Penalized and one Favored SA in each tree. Stupid, IMO.)

Lvl 79 (Combo) LB Comparison to your posted #'s.

------------------Your LB's # vs my Combo's #
Vision ---------- 90.10 ---------- 84.38
Agility ---------- 91.10 ---------- 86.38
Speed --------- 160.10 (+50)-- 158.25 (+58)
Jumping ------- 77.10 ---------- 45
Strength ------- 50.26 ---------- 60.13
Stamina ------- 64.26 ---------- 60.87
Tackling ------- 75.26 ---------- 84,51
Confidence --- 22.26 ---------- 40.38
Catching ------ 8 ---------------- 10
(all other numbers the same)

So to get an idea of what the difference is I added everything together and got this;

(total); 588.44 --------------- 571.9

A difference of 16.54 (in favor of your #'s)

TBH, I'm not sure an extra 16-20 more in a few skills end up being worth more than the SA's they replaced. IMHO. I may be wrong. :shrug:

By the way, TJ is spot on about bonus SA's.

Sorry I meant +55 instead of 50. But I see what you're both saying, and yeah well I really wanted to lean towards an INT build but I was filling a need for a team and won't exactly get to make him how I want.

So my next question would be, what would you prefer as far as additional abilities go.
Shutdown Cov: 10
Superior Vision: 10
Or
First Step: 10
Shutdown Or Superior Vis: 10

For a good idea on INT style builds, you might send a PM to Prokop. He's pretty dang good at them.

As for me personally, I won't build a DB, Safety, or LB without Superior Vision (even getting it as a Bonus of it's not in the SA tree). It's simply too high a quality SA for all non-D-line defenders to pass it by. Good against fakes, jukes, and all those 'vision attacking' offensive SA's. The rest would depend on if my dot was for sure only going to play man coverage or not.

Okay then. fwiw here is my take ...

Coverage LBs are a complete waste of time unless they can intercept, so my one would look like this -

155 speed
95 vision
90 agility
68 jumping
68 catching
68 tackling
58 stamina
50 strength

8+ in superior vision
8+ in sticky hands

+21% intercept
+15% make tackle
+15% avoid fake

Yeah, I said that initially when I saw the HC/DC wanted Coverage I plan on turning him into int based later in his career.

The bolded part x1000....trust me

Also, I'd go less STR and JMP, but more CTC fwiw.

Yeah, I covered 'Coverage LB arch's in my 1st post. TBPH, I hadn't built one in a long time and got asked to build one... thought about it... couldn't figure out why I hadn't built one in a long time... so I built one and now I remember 113% why I hadn't built one in a long time. Stupid SA tree is truly f*cked for the LB Coverage arch. Much prefer building a Combo arch and then building for pass coverage or INT (or both).

if you build for INT, you have built for coverage

building a coverage LB that can't intercept is pointless
