  • So, I have had 8 people cancel since yesterday. Bunch of last minute drops. Due to this I can only surmise that roughly 6 people are maybe still coming, all of which have decent drives, so I order to try to not waste their times in going to cancel this in hopes early eniug h for people to see before leaving. I will look into doing this maybe next weekend if people are available. For any one that maybe doesn't see this in time and comes, please feel free to contact me and we can maybe get s game …

    quite frankly if you want people to stop slow slow play you need to enforce your players from pencil whipping sportsmanship scores to Max all the time without any thought. As much as I want to think that every player that goes to every tournament is a sporting player and friendly and nice to play can't be true if people are still talking about being slow played. When you look at almost every single tournament everybody's sports scores are maxed out, how can that happen if people are being slow p…

    Quote from irvingberlin: “Quote from bubafett: “except that you do actually pay points for the unit essentially have the chaff rule as anything that is actually chaff is pretty much useless at everything else except for that role to go out and die ” But you don't have to take them if you don't want to. You can make an entire army that has 0 units of chaff in it. It wont necessarily be a very good army but you can do it and it can compete at the 6 point swing worth of objectives. ” the same can b…

    Quote from irvingberlin: “Quote from bubafett: “how is it design flaw to have units only put on for scoring when you have units that are only put on the table as chaff? How are they any different ” They don't have a special rule called "chaff" that you are paying extra points for and you aren't required to take them to win objectives. Apparently we pay points for scoring no matter how bad the unit is and you have to have at least one scoring unit to compete at the objectives. If a unit is so bad…

    Quote from irvingberlin: “Quote from Morgan_Treeman: “some units are only good at scoring and nothing else. you would be nerfing them into the ground. I don't want a game where we just line up and fight in a scrum inthe middle of the table every game. objectives allow for variety and more strategy. ” You don't think its a design flaw to have units that are literally only put on the table because they have scoring? If they exist they should be fixed so they are viable despite scoring. No one has …

    I'm sorry if I end up coming off as rude or any other type of names people could come up with, but I find this topic silly. Of course nobody likes to be slow played it's extremely annoying and frustrating. But in no way is changing the scoring system from what we have now going to fix this. Slow plane comes from only a small percentage of individuals that feel like they can't compete against the opposing player or there are me so therefore they slow play the game in order to not lose as many poi…

    I can agree with most points made here. 2.0 at the beginning introduced a lot of new interesting builds for a lot of different armies but then the hotfix knocked a lot of them back down. Most people that I hear talking about this hotfixes that it's not actually a hotfix but yet another patch. There was way too many changes and significant changes to really be calling it a hot fix. I still think we are in our way better State than we ever were in 8th Edition but it is tiresome of this game trying…

    Quote from Lord Inquisitor: “Columbus OH is like 8-9 hours from Durham NC or Norfolk VA or Philly PA. That's already pretty far. Plus team events have more difficulty in getting attendance and not having a team collapse due to unforeseen circumstances. Once you get past about 5 hours it isn't "drive down friday night, leave sunday evening" it's a 4 day weekend or flights. Seems like a tall order to me. ” it's understandable for sure. That's how I am with events but I look at about 6ish hours is …

    first and foremost we would need to make sure that you guys have enough teams that would be committed traveling. Second of all then it would have to go down the road and figure out whether or not strengthen numbers can move back down to Columbus or maybe somebody can create a new event around Columbus or Kentucky or something like that. I know speaking for myself I would travel down there to do something like that
