    Competitive Event Game Concessions

    Thing is, if your scrape in to the next heat, you are destined for bottom tables in the final, prizes wont go down to you, so you only have the 'glory' of playing in the final (and paying £60 for the privilege) but zero chance of a prize. Are there enough people playing proper competitive AoS (or 40k) to fill out enough events to make this happen? id say no, or it would be popular already. You need the fun players to fill the events out, the ones who dont really care, the ones who actually make the events profitable.

    GW do this with their GT heats, but last year I heard they opened up the criteria in the final rounds because there was not enough take up for the finals? Does anyone know if that was the case and how the number splits actually ended up.

    Yep, ive never seen a 'tournament' specifically lay out rules on bringing competitive armies, playing to the end, expectation on maximising KPs etc. Every tournament ive been too had painting prizes, sports prizes, wooden spoon prizes, spot prizes, and encouraged all sorts of players to enter. Vast majority of TO's want to run a fun event, not a meta smash fest. Sure they will make sure a system is in place to balance out the winners, but they put other things in place to make everyone else have a fun time too. The exceptions are invite only 'masters' events, which are set-up to be purely competitive.

    The point with this is, you assume everyone there is only there to be competitive. If people who just wanted to play for fun didnt go to these events you would have half the attendance and probabaly less events to play at as a result. If im playing someone who's sole goal is to win, then i dont mind conceeding. If im playing someone who wants to win and is also having fun with it/me, then ill keep playing. Also, events that use Kill points as secondaries are rapidly vanishing (in the UK it seems anyway), they were never great and secondary objectives are generally the preferred approach now.

    Isnt it obvious, forgeworld weapon packs . Seriously though, this is probably a long time from now so we neednt worry yet. There are so many examples of 'broken' rules being fixed in one place but never another.

    HA! yes I admit I'm the kind of person that causes miniatures like this to continue to exists, awesome model, terrible rules. Who knows when ill use it, but I will eventually.

    The Stormcast Questor also went OOP a few months ago, I know because I was after one and it was removed from the webstore, despite being in the Battletome. Its back on the store now though, so we dont really know what they will do until its actually done. EDIT: Ah just seen Klamm mention the deathrunner was not on a separate sprue, so can understand why it was dropped, but Hero's are still possible to return.

    Always make your unit upgrades, they are free and give benefits. If you are using a unit of 30 then you dont NEED 3 banners, but its allowed and doesnt hurt as if they are scattered around the unit it means you can be more flexible removing casualties without losing their benefits.
  10. GA work great, they give structure, they form a basis for development, most of all they allow people to have a bunch of models and a way to use them. I dont see an allies system as an improvement, this all seems to fall back to the usual posts about how they dont like X faction being aligend with Y. This ignores the fact they cant ally unless you take a GA in matched play games.

    AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

    We really need to start a 'Kharadron wishlisting/fixing' topic, so much discussion in here about stuff that isnt current rules and its not often obvious.

    Thats pretty much how every army is at top level, but i agree it would be nice to have some actual flavour put back into them. Who knows when that will be.

    AoS 2 - Stormcast Eternals Discussion

    Think this is covered in the lastest FAQ, bonuses only apply once so it would probably be d6 hits + 1.

    He might be being rather over pesemistic. Its unlikely Elves will be redone before the GHB and we dont yet know if any unavailable models for Grots or Skaven will be removed from that anyway, so its likely youve got 6months minimum, probably 18months or more.
