Unless you’ve already tried every list combination and battalion against every other army in a competitive environment (after 2.0) and recorded your data, then I don’t see how one can already assume things are grim so early on in 2.0? FAQs for Khorne and / or some of the top tier armies could still change the whole meta overnight (a meta which hasn’t even established itself yet imo). You don’t have to have the strongest book in the game to be a competitive army, if Khorne is good at beating Nurgle and death (as mike found at 6 nations), and those armies are considered strong, then khorne will be good in that meta. If you only see fyreslayers then you might have a tougher time. Really depends on your tournament scene / gaming group imo.
Maybe we have different ideas of the word grim. In your opinion do you believe Khorne is a decent mid tier army or are you saying you think it’s one of the weaker bottom tier books? Or do you think it’s mid tier but mid tier isn’t competitive?
Im not saying your opinions are wrong (though I do still think it’s a tad early to know for sure) I’m just curious to know what makes you think that.
