  • Quote from GarethB: “Quote from Ipower: “This seems awfully like Scotland Vs Wales... Interesting pairings. I can see who got pushed under the bus. ” Got predictions C-dawg? I'd be keen to see how you see the matches, as both Scotland and Wales have them rated very differently. You can assume all lists are the same as the ETC ones... ” I expect the Welsh to win first dibs on the sheep. Both sides seem to have pushed 3 players under the bus so think it will come down to who can claw the most out …

    Might be a little strong Vs warmachines. As 2-3 stacks has a good chance of nuking any wm that hits the unit. Kinda hilarious and I love it but can see the fun police/RT shutting it down.

    Quote from Arma: “Quote from Ipower: “What would people feel about swapping druidism and evocation? I can see a strong arguement that the "priest" has more to do with soul manipulation than the cuatl lord. ” From a background/fluff perspective i dont like this. I consider evocation a lore which requires a lot more magical talent than druidism. A cuatl communicating with his fallen brethern spirits about the past/present/future , seeing souls/spirits on the battlefield etc creates a more powerful…

    What would people feel about swapping druidism and evocation? I can see a strong arguement that the "priest" has more to do with soul manipulation than the cuatl lord.

    Quote from Ugly Death: “Quote from marcema: “Quote from Ugly Death: “How about this: cast evo, discard 1 token, do 1 wound with no saves allowed (12 inches range). Its not focused, so would snipe characters only if they are alone. ” Interesting as well, but i already see opponents with 1+ lone characters cry,as you mention yourself. If you for example kill a lone character in one turn combined with the other snipes of the path, without issue.Quote from Dancaarkiiel: “12 inches though =/ ” True, …

    Eh, not surprised. We told BLT that increasing instead of decreasing the cost of ancient knowledge was bloody stupid and the discipline would never be taken at that price. Hopefully they will pay more attention in September but I wouldn't hold your breath.

    You rather undermined your argument there at the end. The 2++ is ranged only and the only wound on 5+ is CC only. They never interact.

    Quote from DanT: “Question for you all: Is soulfire weaver as it currently stands not good enough at any points value? ” Oi, no trap questions. Obviously it's a bargain at 5pts as is almost anything. A more clear question would be, at what point would you expect to see people taking soulfire weaver with evocation in ~25% of lists.

  • Quote from Dark Assassin: “Awesome! Getting very keen to see the other lists ” see the ETC list doc for most of them.

    Quote from Orion: “Give the Thyroscutus Scoring. Problem solved. I would take one in most lists for sure. ” Wish you had suggested this when we were working on the book. Seems like a great idea. As for the thyroscutus moving to core, it is possible for the full book rework. I have suggested it to RT previously as a fix and maybe for the full book was the response.

    Some interesting ideas in here, really like the giving and taking life aspect. I'm afraid the LD affecting suggestions will fall under negative play(doom and darkness was utterly bent at 8th ed power level) but I may be over reacting. @DanT care to clarify my guidelines based on the RT view?

    They're probably still jealous of all the fun we had with the bane head party slann on death magic back in 8th ed. Those happy happy days...

    Raptor cav is a very easy answer BLT nerfed them two updates running and need to roll back some of the price hike. Caiman were in 6/20 lists so not sure what the problem is? Similarly the stygiosaur and pteradons were taken in 25% of lists same as temple guard so again no issue. Top issues are evocation, baby carnosaur, thyroscutus, javelin braves and caiman ancient. All of those were taken 0-2 times and this information will be passed up the chain.

    So after exhaustive effort by the ACS, background, RT and BLT we have yet to find a way to make people want to take evocation in the same way they want to take any combination of the other lores. We have one last chance to fix this in September before we have to wait until the full book release. Hence I am opening it up to the community, please post your suggestions below. Design restrictions - No lore swapping - Can't charge different points for different lores(-50pts if you pick evocation was …

    A more interesting figure is that 20/35 teams took lizards or 57% of the possible lizards escaped Schrödinger's box. Evocation is still the red-headed step child of paths for SA. Maybe RT will finally bend on admitting the path is pants for SA but I'm not holding out much hope.

    I'd offer mine but they tend to be very similar and very boring. For example my last game was turns 1-3 nothing happened, turn 4 killed both fiend units, pestilent beasts, blazing chariot, 80% of plague bearers and 90% of horror unit. Top of 5 concession as my 5 would have taken off both DP, remaing 6 plague bearers and skull chariot.

    Quote from gundizalbo: “I only find one solution for this: 8 Spanish SA players vs 8 no Spanish SA players. Team match by UB2. Less cry. Less "we know how to play". And more play. Who wants to participate?? ” Didn't really intend to set the forum on fire but I am well up for some ub games.

    So SA are working in several places with the sole exception of the Spanish meta, personally I'm inclined to believe that the book is fine and the Spanish meta is broken and needs some work.
