  • Quote from matrim: “why did they decide to single out giants with tribal spear? Every other war platform counts as the same size as the unit they join (size is based on the most numerous models' size in the unit) but they went out of their way to ensure a barb block with a giant cannot go through portals. ” I do not understand what you mean here... Giants works exactly like other war platforms... the only thing is that it is a gigantic one. That is the reason why it cannot use portals. A unit wi…

  • Quote from Shukran: “i dont know if it is a IT question in this thread, but please, i need an answer. why dont STAFF produce a patch note, in which they state REASONING of each balance patch? ” This is something we pointed out with the ACS community. I doubt it will be done for this patch since things need to advance, but we asked RT to deliver us a detailed list of change with the reasoning behind it. They do not have to justify themselves but it would help us to understand the reason behind po…

  • This update relies on 2 things: 1. Lower the overall power of the army by a small margin, we are T2 and should reach the power of T3 armies. 2. Boost the internal balance of the armybook. How did they proceed to do so? They raised the cost of the most potent (used a lot) units and lowered the costs of the unseen units. I believe the idea is good, the way it was done might be problematic, especially since it is done via an algorithm. That might lead to some choice that are sub-optimal for some ke…

  • Hello guys ! Here is the new thread dedicated to the feedback on our units. I will try to summarize it all and deliver it to the RT on a regular basis. Please be consistent and explain why you share it, a good feedback needs to be constructive!

  • Hello guys ! This is the post where I'll gather your questions before sending those to the RT. Please be constructive, and I'll try to sort out the most interesting questions. Since we'll be limited (do not expect more then 5) on the number of questions, I will make a mix between the most liked questions and the ones I find are valuable, then send those to the RT. I'll make a recap of the questions I plan to send to the RT and deliver their answer as soon as we get them. Please submit well writt…

  • As ACS we are not working on the book as you may think... Our job is to be the link between the community and the ADT / RT. Those are the people who handle the armybooks. Being one of you I believe it is my right not to agree with some of the updates.

  • Sorry for being on this one guys, real life called me away from any screen yesterday Here is the update, and the good news is that it is a beta ! The power is now in your hands !!! RT asked us to test the updated book and give as much feedback as we can, we are also allowed to submit a short list of questions that will be answered. Here is how I see the process: 1. We should need to recalculate all ETC list with the new prices, this would allow us to have an idea of what old list were worth and …

  • Quote from namadeva: “Btw when should we expect that new update? Is it within the next few days? Weeks? Months? Cheers, ” The update is around the corner... almost... I cannot spoil it exactly but what I can tell is that we'll need your help to assess it and that your feedback bout it is going to be valuable. PS: F5 might be your BFF for the end of this week

  • Guys, I have to remind you that our book is rated as slightly too powerful at the moment. I do not believe that the change you ask for would help to lower our performance. Warriors and Feldraks are quite popular in the current meta. Sure warriors are core and the main troop from our army, but still I do not think those are weak, not cheap for sure but they do ok. Overall the popular units should see a slight price raise. What I do expect tough is that the unseen units will see a real price revie…

  • Something that seem good to me would be to force people to have a ratio of core like we currently do, but also to have a restriction that forces you to have 1 core unit for every special one. I find it weird to see some people play lists with 1 core unit and 5 special ones... Also more links between characters and units would be nice... Example: Queens cavalier hero on horse allows you to take 1 unit of Ryma knights as core... This would probably change meta a lot too...

  • To be clear: ALL THE HELLMAW TAX IS ON THE HELLMAW ITSELF. End of debate.

  • Warriors are probably a little too expensive at the moment. They are quite slow and that is their main weakness. This is something that is hard to handle in an army with no shooting at all. The +1M from the chosen is already a huge benefit. I loved the WDG infantry lists we once could field, but I am afraid that is something from the past and that the removal of the nine tailed standard killed that gameplay.

  • @AlexCat What I mean is that if you know you are facing a list relying on heavy armoured units, KOE for example, then you should be able to make a list that allows you to score big against them. That list might be weaker against other kind of lists like O&G, DL, OK... It feels right to me for our army not to be able to do a potent "all-around" list.

  • Something to remember is that the goal of splitting the offensive characteristics in Strength / Armor penetration was to lower the overall AP. We reached a point where most units had AP1 or more and where light armor became useless. It might be a difficult period at first (being among the first book to be reviewed and where that mechanic is a real limitation) but in the end I believe it will make the game more fun for everybody. Then when we check it, we have quite some tools to counter high arm…

  • Quote from matrim: “To me WotDG should be "protected" from these updates as long as possible as it is the only Gold army. ” I agree that we are the only Gold book at the moment, and that we should be some kind of reference for the level of the other books. But that does not mean that our internal balance is good. Some units deserve to get out of the shelves, if you check tournament lists, some models are close to unseen on the tables. Those deserve to earn their place in our lists, yet this has …

  • I do not believe there is any visual difference between a fallen and a warrior with additional hand weapon. I am using the same miniature for both those guys on the fields, in garage games and tournaments. The only thing that you must keep in mind is that the type of unit has to be clear, both for you and your opponent. To be honest I even used those as Chosens...
