SIGMAR

The Rage Quit Amnesty

Recommended Posts

I don't rage quit because I am not used to winning. Those who have lost to me (both of them) got upset because... they lost to me. Gods I love my orcs.

 

I have never played Age of Sigmar though.

 

Rage Quit though, it was more lack of anywhere to play-quit - our GW shut down. I still have my stuff although if anything made me rage was my paints drying up on me all the flaming time.

Does quiting 40K and moving to AOS count as rage quiting or being raised in the glory to the choas gods.

All glory to the Gods, for sure! I don't have a habit of rage-quit either, and as far as WH is concerned, I was not that much interested in FB as in 40k, but AoS got my attention quite strong.

Rage quit?  More like "got miffed and took a break"!  :P

I admit I was less than impressed with the initial Age of Sigmar release.  Partly that was because neither the Stormcast or Bloodbound were at all interesting to me.  I had problems with the loss of the Old World (which I had been gaming in for the last 20+ years :() and the new rules.  Plus, the old Warhammer Fantasy group at my FLGS kind of fell apart. 

As time passed I still kept following developments in the AoS universe and things started to look better to me.  The General's Handbook made me think the game might be something I would want to play after all.  The new Start Collecting box sets were great deals and looks like a fun way to jump back in.  Once the seemingly endless stream of Stormcast and Bloodbound releases ended and we started to see other things, I started seriously thinking about starting a new army.  The Flesh Eaters, Sylvaneth and Flesh-Eater Court in particular looked like fun armies to collect, paint and play. 

So, now I think I'm finally ready to take that deep breath and commit to playing again.   Now, which army to start with...  9_9

I rage quit when 7th came out does that count? 
I mean, I carried on with Mordheim, and still bought stuff with Skaven in, but fantasy went meh. 
I love the Narrative system in AoS.

I'm not sure if this was quite a rage quit, since I hadn't really played much 8th edition at all and I bailed before The End Times.  My spidey sense was going off like crazy that these super expensive books and minis wouldn't be worth having within a year and a lot of it felt like a cash grab.  Beyond that, as a loyal servant of the true Phoenix King, making Malekith the "real" king all along made me nope out of that nonsense.  I also didn't have the time or disposable income to keep up with it anymore.  So I gave my high elf army to a friend who wanted to get his wife into the game, and I had long since taken to barter town to trade my old Chaos and Skaven for Warmahordes stuff.  

When AoS came out, I was deep into X-Wing and Armada was piquing my interest, and the rules and setting seemed like a bad joke.  I pretty much swore off all GW, even shelving my Dark Angels that I had been playing since the 90s (losing significant chunks of my minis over the course of 12 years and 4 moves didn't help).  Of course, I had also just finished my second year of law school, so time and money were at a premium. 

I stuck with X-Wing for a while, until I had a couple of revelations.  First, while X-Wing was cheap on a per model basis, I was buying multiples of each ship released just to get upgrades, so the cost was deceptively high.  Second, the game had gotten stupidly complex and geared towards a lot of min maxing, especially in competitive games.  Third, if I liked X-Wing for simplicity and the ability to get a quick game in, why was I ignoring AoS?

Then a few more things happened (listed in no particular order).  Blood bowl, I finally read the generals handbook, and I saw steampunk Dwarf Sky Pirates on the shelf at my FLGS.  Meanwhile I had picked up the Runewars core set.  Now, if I'm committing to at least attempting to get back into the hobby side of things with modeling and painting, why in the world was I sticking to sub-par minis?  So on a whim I started reading some fluff and bought the generals handbook and the Kharadron battletome.  Ok, this is cool.  This is REALLY cool.  Turns out Kharadron aren't really for me, but I will definitely build up a small force at some point.  Instead I am now working on Stormcast Eternals and also plan to put together a Sylvaneth army.  The Anvils of the Heldenhammer are a godsend (no pun intended) for people who want a link to the old world and a paint scheme that isn't ungapatchka.

Anyway, GW has apparently renewed their lease on my soul between AoS and now 8th edition (although it's time for a change there, I'm thinking Blood Ravens) on top of the return of specialist games.  So here I am, back again and proud of it.

When AoS first dropped I must admit I lost interest, I was gutted, but I don't think I ever rage quit (although I'm sure a few members of my gaming group would disagree, I can be a bit vocal!). I pretty much stopped playing with my greenskins and focused on my CSM 40k army

Since then though, my play time has taken a massive hit, due to study, and I don't get weekly games like I used to. This means that the 40k rules are just too overwhelming, as in the time between games I would become unfamiliar with the rules meaning my games of 40k were less enjoyable. So I decided to revisit AoS.

Honestly, this game is perfect for me. I remember the first time I tried it after a break from playing due to assignments etc. I turned up at club with my orcs, nothing prepared, no list, no pre-thought or anything, and I thought to myself; "what do I fancy playing with tonight?". I then just started unpacking models to play with as I fancied until I had enough to play with for that evenings game (it's probably worth noting we were using a pool system we developed as a group to "balance" games).

That was when I was hooked, I had a great game, and I haven't looked back since. I have now got a fairly hefty project planned for the summer when I am between modules (hello Ironjawz, goodbye money) and I have already vowed that I am going to SCGT next year.

AoS is better than 8th to me now, playing the game is way more fun.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH

Why good bye money?

just dont buy from GW website and ironjawz shouldn't be taht expensive especially if you have some paints already

You youngin's and your newfangled "rage quits."  Back in my day, we didn't have chat rooms to BROOD and shower our discontent on happier people.  We were sad, lonely gamers, and we LIKED it!  /grumpyoldman  Yes, I'm doing a Dana Carvey bit.  Who?  hashtag exactly

Back in the day, I dreamed of what every gamer dreamed of back then: a real job that would pay for my ridiculously expensive hobby.  Well, I got my wish, and 300 miles I moved to get that money to buy those figs.  To celebrate, I did something I only afforded once before... to travel to and enter Nagash into the Golden Demon '99. 

And that, my friends, was the last Games Workshop ever heard of me.  In 2008, I found a figurine to paint.  Not GW.  In 2014 or so, I found a guy who wanted to play a tabletop game... wasn't WFB though... Years later, Nagash had been resurrected, and I had a new model to paint and a community to complain to.

So yeah, 2017 .... "Rage restart"

Does coming back after a hiatus of more then half a decade (why would you ever throw your models out? Oldschool plastic goblin spearmen make the most excellent caltrops, those spears go straight into your foot if you are unwary and they do some serious damage, let alone owning an emergency sack of lead buckshot for when the inevitable zombie apocalypse comes and you need to improvise firearms!) and refusing to call goblins grots and dwarfs duardin or steampunk dwarf pirates as kharadron overlords or giants as aleguzzler gargants etc count here? I don't think it does, but some amongst you probably call it heresy most foul.

I guess I was a rage non-starter.

No way am I getting into a game that requires a huge outlay of cash and then keeps squeezing you with rules updates, new models etc., ESPECIALLY from GW, a company that in my circles gets a lot of knee-****** hate!

Then I heard a bunch of podcasts/videos about how GW was different these days, AoS was a bit of a reset, so I didn't need to know a lot of prior lore, and that you could play with fewer models, especially with Skirmish. 

The clincher was when we went to GW store and my son was enamored with the big Sylvaneth box. He bought, assembled and starting painting them, so, well what else could I do but jump in? I bought the new Stormcast vs Khorne box and assembled them and am now just waiting for a chance to play!

I am actually coming to GW because I rage quit Malifaux and Deadzone.  I sold all of my stuff and bought 9 total armies across 40k and AoS for me and my family to play.  We love it.

I've never rage-quit myself but...

...I feel that rage-quitting is an important and sensible response to changing the rules for playing with your toys ONLY IF you burn your army and post it on YouTube. Get really angst-y about it and  play angry Deth Metal in the background! 

For your ? and our ?!!!

Actually I rage quit about 10 years ago, then just watched in contempt as the game did not get any better (IMHO). I was highly skeptycal about AoS when it came out but  kept watching and reading about it, then decided to give it a try because of low model count entry level. I absolutely loved it. Now some pals of mine are also getting in so we can start an AoS group at our hometown... :D

I never really Rage quit Warhammer aos, but stopped playing it for a wile, since the Modells didn’t hade any points value, and playing 100clanrats against 100Stormvermin (for example) just wasn’t really fair and fun.

but I probably will rage quit in 5years, if Gw won’t give some love to old factions, like highelfs, skaven etc.

(I’m still waiting for a Verminus allegiance, or a Battletome for just all Skaven units)

Former employee of the Geedub here... I have more models than I care to mention. I kept them all in the hopes that one day, I  might swing the mighty Warhammer again. Sigmar you have saved me!

I'm on the wrong side of this thread - I didn't rage quit (though only had a few games of early AoS as it didn't really have enough structure to support it) at the AoS release but the possible removal of compendium (and thus a large number of my painted miniatures) may prompt a despair quit. It would be like a rage quit but with less drama and just lead to me playing a lot more 40k and Infinity while occasionally glancing wistfully at my painted army in the cabinet.

I rage quit when AoS was confirmed to kill WHFB and sold all the stuff I wasn't attached to.

Now, that GW expands on the lore and game mechanics, I'm back in with some new and old stuff (Sigvald is patiently waiting for his imminent return :P)

I ragequit when Warhammer Fantasy died. I even got pretty heavily into development of The Ninth Age for a while. When that stopped being satisfying, I sold off my Skaven, Vampire Counts and Wood Elf armies. I thought I was out.

But dang it if the second edition of Age of Sigmar doesn't seem like a ton of fun! I'm intrigued by some of the really interesting fantasy concepts on display. (Dwarven sky-ships! Flying turtles!) I'm still not entirely comfortable with the Stormcast as they seem devastatingly dull and overblown (just like Space Marines), but I'm trying to get past that prejudice.

Currently I'm looking at borrowing a friend's Beastclaw Raiders, as I really like the idea of running an extremely-low-model-count army.

Borrow it, play a game, you're going to love it. It's much more dynamic than WFB, and with the new Core Book they gave us a world to explore and expand upon. The last Malign Portent campaign story was decided by votes you could win by painting models, playing games in stores etc. It felt like you had a part to play in the development of the story. Got hooked pretty fast this way..
