    Concerns with the development of AOS 2

    Well all I can say for now is that my AoS Enthusiasm (which I had since the DoK were announced) received a heavy blow once the new MW Spam reached new heights with the BoK book. Before that I actually looked forward to play against other armies. But now... I don't see why I should play against Clan Skyre or Blades of Khorne, it seems plainly devoid of fun if all you do is remove models due to mortal wounds. What am I playing for if not for fun and immersion? You can't even defend against those Khorne spells and Skyre just puts out MWs at range... not very entertaining. (though I would rather play against skyre than BoK). (and then there is the magically appearing solid steel altar appearing in every ****** battle...) Overall the endless spells are a good concept. Most of them are just badly priced and or one sided (X mortal wounds, Y Mortal wounds) etc. If thesy added some creative effects like random teleports? Or having to run 6" if you are hit. I wished for simply more fun and interesting effects instead of plain damage. This whole concept was utterly destroyed with the prayers which have no setback. can't be unbound, can't be despelled and are all rather cheap in points and have a good powerlevel. All they have in common with endless spells is that they have a model. The same goes for terrain. I loved it with the idoneth, Sylvaneth and Gloomspite but al lof the rest seems forced to me.

    Are you serious? Immersion is the most important part about game design, where by Sigmar did you get the idea about it not being important? Just read any article about game design, get informed by the name of Grungni. and stop your talk of simulators, it makes no sense. Simulators don‘t automatically immerse you (speaking of video game-Simulators). but ofc the drastically increasing amount of STORY is NOT because they actually want immersion. Armies are NOT designed to fit in a unique lore-friendly playstyle. Do you know what immersion means? https://giphy.com/gifs/mashable-l3q2K5jinAlChoCLS #Triggered #JustStop do you forget the time while playing? are you absolutely focused on the game and what‘s happening? —> then you Are immersed. it‘s highly subjective when s.o. Might be immersed. immersion in games does not mean that you feel like you are physically there and I‘d argue you cannot enjoy games if you are not immersed to some degree. Immersion goes hand in hand with enjoyment concerning games.
  3. Since the FeC and Skaven rework there seems to be an increasing powercreep going on as far as I experienced it. (Gristlegore and quadripple pile-ins, rattling guns with the engineer) now I read all the Khorne previews so far and all I see is „MWs in addition“, 16% Chance to deal 16 MWs. D6 MWs to all wizards while losing the spell and getting -2 to cast, D3+D6 MWs AND -1 to hit. „Spells“ with no drawback which are uncounterable. Now I am concerned if there is an ALARMING powercreep happening right now. I‘d like to know the communities opinion on this topic.

    Palanquin != Throne the heaps of corpses tell a different story than it being part of the battlefield. we can agree to disagree. (Though I can‘t find even a mention of the Throne in the lore *reading the book again* 🤓) Nvm I found it! ^^ it‘s build from Dark magic before every battle. This way it fits into the lore! =}

    Concerns with the development of AOS 2

    Well it’s Still not stated in the lore, but you are free to assume that the FeC carry around a wall, corpses and a complex throne just to reassemble it on the battle field. btw, if your assumption was correct it would not be a „Charnel Throne“ but a „Charnel Palanquin“. Throne indicates that it is indeed a solid structure not to be carried around.

    It is immersion breaking and doesn‘t make sense. Especially the breaking of the player immersion should be avoided. So I should look for a simulation because of a bad game design? 🤣 funny. Weak argument. what other rules exactly? I find all of which I read plausible within the AoS Universe, for example the FeC throne doesn‘t even have a lore entry of why the heck it is appearing on every battlefield (I ll convert mine to be carried by ghosts/horrors) the loonshrine at least is there because that‘s where the Gobbos spill forth.

    Concerns with the development of AOS 2

    I am really put down by the increasing MW Spam. I am also disappointed about Faction-Specific scenery, too many factions have it already and it lost its state of being sth. Special plus some of the scenery makes no sense at all as to why the heck it can be found on the battlefield (every game)

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    I‘d like an estimation of how much stronger BoC have become compared to before (since that would fit into this thread rather well) =}

    =} then I guess you are right, I‘ve got my infos from book reviews (they said there was nothing stopping your other priest from trying to pray for the same judgement as well) - that was the info I had ^^

    Miniwargaming claimed the opposite 🤷🏼‍♂️
  11. JackStreicher

    So what about DoK and Legions?

    The trend of GW is not to nerf anything instead they make the newer factions even stronger... (I bet you need 4x the points of Blades of Khorne army for a non-bt army to have a fair chance of beating them. Same for FeC)
  12. JackStreicher

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    Judgements points: axe: 60 the other two: 40 each every priest can try to summon a judgement once per turn (basically if you have 3 priests they each get a rerollable try to summon the axe) and each priest can do two more prayers in addition though you can‘t pray the same prayer more than once per turn

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    The first BoK preview battle is out on Miniwargaminh. Khorne Slaughters his opponent (1500 pts game) without taking considerable dmg. The axe alone killed a unit of Dragon ogors... well, time will tell

    Except they can ban spells with pretty nice bonuses (mostly +2 for bronze-collars?) yep they‘re spamming MW-Gun has an auto-reload button. And if those prayers remain guess what: the opponent can‘t move them. they‘re purely positive with no drawback for Khorne and you can‘t do anything against them. That‘s the main issue apart from the absurd MW amounts. They should have a mechanic in which they go rampant and start slaughtering the Khorne Troops for more skulls.
  15. JackStreicher

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    True the Altar does not give +1 to prayers, still rerollable (34% chance) “it‘s the same as endless spells“ it‘s not, you have to burn a casting attempt to ban it. The „it might despell itself“ is a big pro.
  16. JackStreicher

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    4+ rerollable with the Altar -> 75% success Chance. D3 to every unit it moved across (ouch) if it disappears you can summon it again, win win. the prayers are stupid since the opponent can‘t do anything about it. the skulls have a normal chance to procc (16%) but can oneshot all mages (srsly?) again: you can‘t do anything about it because buffed up prayer.

    I play ...6 armies? Most of which are pretty good. so what you think is not the issue.

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    It‘s funny how GW just can‘t seem to get points right or establish some balance. it usually takes people 2 seconds and reddit to see whether a unit is viable or not (with good arguments). That’s evidence enough for me that GW does not care at all (since they have enough resources to fix balancing and pointing rather quickly and easily)

    DoK (which imo don't have that much) and IdK ( well also almost no MWs) + all kind of spells

    I just have to share this: 40k in a nutshell
  23. JackStreicher

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    🤷🏼‍♂️ Dunno, they just complained that the MW Spam put them off too much also they see it as a lack of creativity that each and every spell deals a multitude of MWs instead of more interesting effects.

    The Ghoul Heads and Shoulders are finished and they look very nice.

    Powercreep - Fact Or Fiction

    Imo it is way better than all spells for 100 points. Plus you can summon it in a rerollable 4+ ... NW spam is like playing the game just by yourself. Your opponent can‘t do anything about it (maybe he gets a 6+). In the end you MW and remove enemies, there‘s just no interaction. (I‘ve already lost 3 players because they hated the MW spam - they went back to 40k...now I am the only AoS Player in a 80km Radius ...)
