  • Quote from Teowulff: “Quote from Borjnfer Wraith: “Quote from Teowulff: “Well I used the Maladys Book as well .. never missed that spell on 3 thus far! ” How many points are invested to get the "H" spell off in 3 die? ” I think I had it on my other mage, the Asfad one ..Basically you have to roll a 9 on 3 dice (74% chance) with 1 re-roll (increases chance of success even more). 605 pts: Mage (Divination) Asfad Scholar, Wizard Master, Master of Spellcrafting, Book of Meladys (D), Talisman of the …

  • It case someone has missed it, Basalt plates now “only” offers 3++ vs flaming. There you have a cookie OotFH, to compensate for molten copper

  • Quote from Noldor: “Quote from espn: “But you CAN run 2 normal dragons and MoCT BSB, altough with only 45 points left for equipment. ” You cant: 2x460=920 ” Not just because if points but because Dragons are 0-1. You need the Cavalier to make them 0-2, and that removes option for on-foot MoCT

  • Quote from AlexCat: “@DanT ... Daemon Bane .. The loss of optimal +1 Armor for HbE mounted characters is a heavy blow and totally unwarranted. I'm trying to understand whether it was intervention of the RT not familiar with the army structure (Death Cheater and Basalt Infusion are very bad choices for HbE characters because of Dragonforged Armor and Diadem of Protection antisynergy), or just poor job of the TT. ” This so much. Existing BRB +1AS armour choices for mounted characters are antisyner…

  • It would be good if we could get some insight on the below: [Edit: Half of it ninja’d by @Adam!] Questions to RT: 1) Ryma Banner: why was the +1 advance boost not allowed for Cavalry, which causes the banner to be largely overpriced for what it offers to them? - 0.203 had +1S +1AP for 50pts and not seemed overperforming. Now 60pts for half the effect - Army has cavalry as one if top 3 preferred style and speed as army trait. Yet cavalry is left out Negating cavalry to benefit from this banner no…

  • It may be down to personal taste. IMO, based on your table, S6 wounding R10 on 6s is enough incentive, which wouldn’t require the additional benefit of being immune (or close to immune) to any S3 and S4 shooting/ combat attacks. But anyway, that is probably a lesser topic; the real improvement is by introducing the increase of probability every “two-steps” for the most common values, instead of the increase for every “one-step”. I know this was looked at for 2.0, but discussion postponed as bein…

  • @Warboss_R'ok Agree with the suggested direction, with the only caveat that I would not implement the auto-wound and auto-fail of the extremes. I’d personally prefer to keep the wound on 6s against high Res and wound on 2s against low res to disencourage power creep to S9/R9 or strong strength debuffs. With that option lower strength (S4/S5) gets revalued and opens design space From a balancing perspective, single models of high Res (specially R5-R6) should then see an increase of their HP pool,…

    Very interesting read @Furion, definately many ideas that could be taken from it. I enjoyed the read I share your frustration in why does it take that long to fix some of the obvious stuff. Although I could give youdifferent reasons, you probably have already better access to first hand sources and will likely end up reaching the same conclussion. There is things in there that make a lot of sense, like giving Hard target to Griffons and remove Glittering Laquer. That was the preferred option in …

  • On the questions around @Furion’s movement with the Sloop: A sloop is light troops, therefore you can move it sideways, to separate itself from the border edge, do any number of reforms and move until reaching the final position. Perfectly valid move In other words: A flying chariot move can be seen as something as simple as: lift the model from where it is, and place it anywhere within its advance move range, facing the direction you want. Movement/position is then checked at final destination …

  • Quote from Alzam: “Because the rules says exactly the opposite ? "The first time the bearers model suffers an unsaved wound from an attack with Multiple Wounds, the number of Wounds suffered is halved (rounding fractions up)." 1 Wound /2 = 0.5 rounding up 1, item got used with no effect. Note that this is the standard "template" for that rule. At least in the past, all effects of that kind (MW divided by 2) were rounding up and had no use on if the opponent rolled a 1. Don't know if there are st…

  • Edit: I’ve realised I replied thinking the questionwas related to hereditary and i atead is related to starmetal, which makes the beliw not relevant fir the later It was intentional design that in such case it would prevent the single 1 wound for multiwounds Look at it from a different perspective: a goblin causes you a wound: you can use a token and receive 0 A bolt thrower MW attack causes you 1 wound: you can use a token and receive 0 A bolt thrower MW causes you 2 wounds: you can use a tonen…

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “Quote from Calcathin: “I like option 4. ” Option 4 is the one where the BLT member hasn't given up on discussions in desperation.For example, from interactions where they lay out 3 options which they feel are feasible, and the ACS contact picks option 4 Your own behavior is a paradox, Calcathin. ” What a closed mindset for game design, and what a tendency to overrule presented solutions Similar to the case we just went through, not always may the best option be presented with…

  • Quote from Pk-ng: “I can understand that and rationale it but seems like a really lazy move to do what they did ” Since we (ACS) were part of the suggestion process once the request was put on the table, is more appropriate to include us ACS as part of that decision in your statement What do you think was the issue in this case and what would you have suggested? Note that the feeling we got was that AP -1 on the spear would likely not have made it without looking at the HWotF somehow

  • Quote from Fnarr: “Your options at this point are: 1) stop interacting 2) tell people to stfu when they cross the line (and get a warning from HR) 3) buckle to the pressure, revert back all 6 changes, and release a subpar product ” I like option 4. This is the option where the BLT rep actively communicates with the ACS team prior to the update, they discuss some of the key aspects together, BLt member informs of areas likely to be changed and confirms whether that aligns with ACs expectations an…

  • @AlexCat DL? @DanT

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “Quote from Furion: “Quote from Fnarrr: “I guess the takeaways should be: 1) Balance is done for the top end, like with every other game in existence. Bring your top stars into the fold. Not gonna beat around the bush, their opinions matter more (to the balance team, not to the designers. For numerical values, basically) 2) Actions speak louder than words. Player A stating "option X is terrible" over and over again makes no difference if option X is still in their tournament l…

  • Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “Quote from DanT: “Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “@DanT, it's good that you take the time to come here and explain some of the rationales for the decisions by RT. Your post does give valuable perspective on things. As I said, if there's an information vacuum, it will instead be filled up through speculation, mostly driven by preconceived notions. I could, for instance, never have guessed the reason for making the Navigator's Banner 0-1. Though I'm not convince…
