...I'm stuck on Wakka's ultimate weapon. Now, let me tell you, I hate blitzball. Even if I'm winning a game, it just gets so tedious doing the same thing for ten minutes. (that feeling only worsens when neither team is scoring) Naturally, blitz isn't something I'm doing for the fun of it; I just wanna finish up that chapter of the game and get Wakka's sigil.

Can anyone tell me the best team combination and their locations? (I mainly work with free agents)

You may here one million different opinions. This worked for me.

Early game (by blitzball players' levels - until approximately 35):

Forwards: Tidus, Wakka, Larbeight (two out of three)
Middlefield: Brother
Defense: Ropp, Judda, Lakkam, Zalitz (two out of four)
GK: Nimrook
*Really early in the game (until level 5), just hire anyone better than the existing ones for just a few games.


Mid game (until approximately level 75):

Forwards: Tidus, Wakka, Larbeight (two out of three)
Middlefield: Tatts
Defense: Ropp, Judda, Lakkam (two out of three)
GK: Nimrook


End game (level 99):

Forwards: Tidus, Wakka, Larbeight (two out of three)
Middlefield: Vuroja
Defense: Ropp, Kulukan
GK: Nimrook
Actually a really good list here. I have a kind of similar one with a few variations.

Here's my own experience and preferences. First off the beginner list, players that will be solid if not epic at the beginning of blitzball. Again, my opinion... disclaimer.

For BEGINNERS, this is the list that matters.

-forwards
Tidus (of course), Datto (no need to recruit another player and he does pretty well if given attention) or Zev Ronso (who is kind of a beast, pun intended) or Shaami or Wedge or Vilucha (if you get her before the Dark Aeon blocks your way or much much later after you defeat it and then want to start blitzing).

-Midfielders
Linna (honestly my #1 midfielder, but that's just me) or Brother (FAST killer middle fielder and best in game till almost lvl 50), Tatts or Wedge or Svanda.

-defenders
Ropp, Zalitz or Kyou or Naida (she and Kyou are above average speed.)

-Goalie
Miyu or Jumal or Durren
*this team excludes all players currently under contract from beginning of Blitzball outside of the Aurochs themselves.

NOW THE REAL LIST: THE AMAZING 8.

-Forwards
Tidas, easy.
Wakka, if you wait to play blitzball until you get the airship and recruit him then, or you reset all the data... which is a pain, but I did it once already. I like Wakka, so it was worth it.
Larbeight, simply an animal and high attack for a forward, making him a multidimensional power forward.

-Midfielders... Engage well, spread the ball around well.
Linna, low endurance and sub 60 speed... but killer stats everywhere else! Best mid fielder ever imho.
Kiyuri, low beginning stats, but she gets gains! Same reason as Linna, just barely less than her.

-Defenders...last line of defense! YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Ropp, easy, he's the consensus #1 defender in the game. 9 of 10 Blitzers will agree.
Kulukan, also most people acknowledge her #2 best defender ranking. The game gets stupid easy with those two.
-Goalie
Nimrook, easy easy easy choice. Simple. Only problem is leveling him when he never gets tested from my defenders listed above....

Honorable mentions:
-forwards
Vilucha, pure offense, no other use imaginable.
Shaami, lesser yet faster clone of Vilucha. Only offensive use.
Nedus, fast, super fast at lvl 60. Before, NOT fast. High endurance and shot, but speed gets you in position!
Basik/Argai, super slow tanks, but both over 84 EN and 80 SH.
Isken, Larbeight's little bro without the AT skill. 99 freaking endurance! 81 SH. No other use.
Datto, fast, 90 SP, only 62 SH, but I had to plug at least one Auroch original.
Keepa, I know, 2nd Auroch?? but at lvl 99 he has 99 SH. Slow at 53 SP, but who cares, only player with 99 SH in game.
-midfielders...
Brother, has decent stats and well balanced, and SUPER FAST! He is like a sideline to sideline NFL free safety.
Mifury, very great EN and PASS. Decent other stats. Warning, starts with 20 SP, 69 SP much later @ lvl 99.
Vuroja, other than average SP 60, his other stats are better than the other 2 listed above him.
-defenders...
Irga Ronso, at higher levels, she has power stats... if only she weren't so dang slow! (42) *use as midfielder in a defensive minded strategy might be a better option for her.
Zev Ronso, faster than Irga, (57 SP), probably best used as defender later, midfielder early on.
Navara Guado, super fast, and although early MF for Glories, later levels he's a power house defender. 84 SP!
-goalie
Wedge, CA 62 @ lvl 99 Only good at goalie once he hits the 70's in levels.
Nizarut, CA 60 @ lvl 99 Slow start, but viable by lvl 40's.
Miyu, only good in low levels till about 30-40.
Zamzi, if you want a Ronso, and if you don't mind settling for less. 4th best at end game. 55 CA @ lvl 99.

Now, the SPEED TEAM, to honor G4mBi7 on the Steam forums, who kind of had some great points....

Forwards.
Nedus, 99 SP, 74 SH, and 71 EN.
Shaami.
Giera.
Datto.
Tidus.

Midfielders.
Navara.
Tatts.
Mifurey.
Brother.
Naida.

Defenders. (not a lot of good attackers who are pretty fast...but at least they'll usually all attack in a group.)
Auda and Pah Guado... I guess, even though Navara is better than both of them as a defender.
Maybe use Tatts or Mifurey as defenders instead of midfielders...

Yes im new to the game...just trying to find the same net you guys use[b][/b]

How do you buy the blue net for blitzball???

First off, don't start playing blitzball until you can move around inside the airship. Talk to brother, he is a motherloving behemoth shark of an OH MY GOD. Put him in the middle and let him do his thing, you will not be losing for long. It will actually take you effort to lose with him in your team. Make a drinking game out of it, or a toking one.

LF: Tidus
RF: Blappa
MF: Brother
LD: Judda
RD: Balgerda
GL: Durren

Handpicked just so that I can get the Jupiter Sigil. :P

Tidus, vilucha, miyuri, ropp, kyou, nimrook with jumal as a spare on the roster since he has the next best ca in te league by level etc, and he makes a decent goalie when I need to level up nimrook.

Miyuri ropp and kyou make up my defense and I mve them around into mid fielder on occasion for more experience. Vilucha is lagging behind Tidus because I got her late and she is havog touble breaking through goalies while jetch shot is practically guaranteed but despite that i have still managed to cause a three way league scoring tie on my team with kiyuri of all players being the third

Heres info taken from a gamefaqs url. (I cant post the url since im a new user)

[i]Forward: SH and EN most important
Keepa - 99 SH(doesnt have much else going for him tho)
Larbeight - 96 SH(highest EN as well endgame, and solid AT stat make him top shooter for most people endgame)
Linna - 92 SH(highest PA endgame, and very good AT and BL stats endgame, but her very poor EN (27!!!) endgame makes most people overlook her)
Vilucha - 91 SH(good EN as well)
Honorable Mentions:
Tidus - 78 SH(good EN, and free)
Wakka - 80 SH(good EN, 1 gil per game, and sentimental reasons )
Nedus - 74 SH(99 SP!!!)
Isken - 81 SH(99 EN!!!
Most people that I know use Larbeight, Vilucha, and/or Isken endgame, but pretty much any character with 75+ SH is effective.

Goalie: CA most important
Nimrook - 67 (best, anybody who tells you otherwise is lying)
Wedge - 62 (honorable mention for being 2nd best)

Midfield: All stats important, PA most
Vuroja - 99 PA (best PA, and most of his other stats are above average, he is the best OVERALL midfielder
Honorable Mentions:
Linna - 99 PA (best offensive midfielder)
Kiyuri - 90 PA (best defensive midfielder)

Defense: AT and BL most important, PA somewhat as well
Ropp - 73 AT (best) and 53 BL (solid) combined with 96 PA make him the most sought after defender
Irga - 67 AT (2nd) and 55 BL (solid) with 79 PA (solid) and 79 EN (nice bonus)
Kulukan - 64 AT(3rd) and 64 BL (great) combined with 96 PA make her 2nd most sought after for most people
Nav Guado - 54 AT (decent) and 82 BL (best) with 84 SP (great bonus)
Honorable Mentions:
Anyone with above 50 AT, BL, and PA will all make solid defenders[i]


Some characters, like Wedge, aren't very good at later levels, or they actually lose some of their capabilities. For instance, Wedges shot will never go above 21, and after a certain level, he begins to lose his shot powers. The characters listed here, according to this guy, have the best stats when theyre at the highest levels. My team is Tidus, Larbeight, Viroja (spelling?) Killukan, Ropp and Nimrook, I got most of them between level zero and twenty, and they've been whooping everyones behind since I got them. By the way I have Tidus instead of Vilucha because I cant beat the dark aeon to get back into Besaid and recruit Vilucha yet.

Tidus
Blappa (good shot, block, pass, en)
Brother (all round good stats attack, pass, shot, en, speed, block best for mid leveling up is unreal no one gets by him)
Ropp (good en, pass, attack, block)
Judda (good en, pass, attack, block)
Nimrook (best keeper)

Wedgie is good just passing too low i had tidus, datto, brother, ropp, jassu, keeper at first and i was unstoppable with just tidus, brother, ropp so far nd a.ronso has good shot just too slow try the team above i love blitzball & its probably the beat team i have ever had & seen on the game people are choosing players on here that ain't even good compared to these :-/

Best depends on many things, including level of the players and your playstyle.

LF - Titus will be your #1 pick until late game.
At around level 70 Larbeight passes Tidus as the #1 LF. Only keep Tidus for late game if your play style is dependent on Jecht Shot.

RF - Vilucha
There are issues with getting her, however, so you may choose to use Larbeight here instead.
She is located in Besaid Village, so you can only get her during one of the three times you can backtrack after opening BB (The earliest is after Djose Temple, but before crossing the Moonflow). If you do not recruit her before getting the airship you cannot get her until after you defeat the boss Dark Valefor.
If you can get her she has great stats throughout all levels and begins the game as a FA, so you don't have to wait on a contract.

MF - This is this #1 play-style dependent pick.
If you like to use your MF speed to pull defenders out of position and then throw to uncovered forwards, then Brother's speed makes the playstyle possible.
If you play the MF as an offensive position, then use Linna as she has great Shoot stat.
The best Overall MF is Tatts. His Speed maxes at 71, which is nothing near Brother's max 99, but his still well above avg and the rest of his #s are very good. Even if you use Brother, which is my preferred method, Tatts is still a good player pre-Airship as you can get him out of Kilika if you go back for Vilucha/Larbeight.

LD - Ropp
Best Defender in the game. Period.
You get him almost immediately after BB opens up, so no reason to use any other LD ever unless you want to min-max at early levels. Zalitz has slightly better stats from 1-30, but not by much and not enough to bother leveling him, IMO.

RD -
Wedge early-mid game.
Kuluhan passes him ~ level 60.

GK- Nimrook
Best Goaltender. Period.
You don't get him until airship. Best replacement G until that time is Miyu. Jumal is close behind Miyu, if you want to play BB between Luca and Moonflow.

HINT RE: CONTRACTS.
If the NPC re-signs a player you want or not is randomly decided when the contract is finished,as is the length of the contract. Save before every game. That way if Nimrook re-signs for a 39 game contract you just have to reset and play 1 more game for another chance at him, not 39.

Keep in mind that your play-style will mean your millage may vary, but here are the best lineups for my playstyle. (Notes: I do not min-max every level and prefer to change out only for long-term improvement. Also, I don't play BB until after I can backtrack immediately after Djose.):

1-60:
LF: Tidus
RF: Vilucha
MF: Brother (Tatts until airship)
LD: Ropp
RD: Wedge
G: Nimrook (Miyu until airship)

60-99:
LF: Larbeight
RF: Vilucha
MF: Brother
LD: Ropp
RD: Kulukan
G: Nimrook

I hope this was helpful.
