  • Quote from Ugrush: “Case: Sorceror/Barb Chief in Dark Chariot forms unit with Warrior Chariot. They have re-roll panic and break testes from Battle Fever/Path of the Favoured. Problem: Both rules requires more than half of the models in the unit to have BF/PftF to gain the benefit. RAW they lose both rules, but is this intended? ” I doubt anyone have considered this case specifically. Thus no actual intent exist even. Rules are clear tho

  • New version of rules explained in figures is up the-ninth-age.com/community/fi…b37079b2b9e747eba2c50e9e3

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “But if it happens that there is an eliteness creep, it should be with the intention that the other elf armies are going to get similar treatment. ” We actually have a clear intentions to not do things like this. Because 1. We don't want the game to make sense only at some point in time in the distant future. We want each and every version of the game, at all instances in time, to make sense and be logically consistent. If dread elves are not supposed to be better trained …

  • What we are looking for here is no so much opinions on what is speculated to work in a competitive setting. Let's assume our armybook designers will be able to implement things in a competitive way (afterall, this is to a large degree down to points, which is easy to fine-tune and has nothing to do with guidelines). For example, assume that short-ranged shooting is made to be effective under the limits given in guidelines (e.g. no pure avoidance lists, shooting has a support role and is not not …

  • New versions out of Åsklander book and Makhar book

  • Quote from DanT: “I understood an earlier post to be saying that the feedback the project had got was that the design of the old orb was not liked (i.e. it couldn't be fixed by points), is this correct? ” What I said earlier in this post regarding community feedback is my recollection of the feedback we have gotten during the past ~6 months. Spread over lots of posts and lots of threads. I have no intentions to go dig this up. I don't recall where exactly this feedback is from (community, face-t…

  • Quote from Shukran: “obvioualy orb was disliked 55p Couldnt we try 40-30-20-15p before removing such item? ” When we look at feedback, we try very hard to differentiate between 1. Disliked because not competitively priced. 2. Disliked design, it being competitive or not is irrelevant For problems of type 1, we don't change design but price (assuming other data sourced also indicate price update is warranted) For problems of type 2, updating price cannot help. Our sources indicated orb of forebod…

  • Quote from Zamo: “Quote from fjugin: “it seemed like a complete redesign was the way to go. ” Complete redisign? It is the same just only splitted in two now... design is almost the same, some would even tell its even worse due to range... ” Orb of foreboding was completely redesigned (Ledger was not)

  • Quote from Exalted Champion: “Seems to me like you chose the wrong spells during spell selection or you are unflexible or limited in your spell selection. ” I think the orb is mainly useful in low investment combat oriented magic phase set ups. Let's say max 5 spells and at least 3 of these are combat spells. If I want to okay a magic phase like this, veilgate orb seems like a good option. I.e. Veilgate orb should be seen as an enabler for this type of magic phase. Quote from Exalted Champion: “…

  • Quote from Happy Aspid: “Evocation early turns - wasting? Not sure I follow. Evo snipes are quite devastating and long ranged. Both can easily annihilate squads of 1+ knights and other things. ” I often use sorc in foot. Smart players will deploy their valuable target more than 8+24" away from my sorc And when they don't, I don't need 8 dice to cast both snipes.

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from Krokz: “Quote from DanT: “@Krokz Was this change not considered a risk? Was there any talk internally of any mitigation of this risk or alternative procedures if this item was received poorly? ” No alternative procedures. All designs are believed to be functional if the price is right. ” So, to be explicit, it wasn't considered a risk to include a new item with no scope for adjustment? Have I understood correctly? Assuming I have understood correctly, my feedback wou…

  • Quote from Krokz: “Quote from TheBloodyLance: “This isn't really a typo, but i've been thinking it would be nice to have barbarian horsemen and warhounds at the first page of the special unit section, since they can be used as core. It would be nice not to scroll so much when building the core sections. Just a small quality of life change. ” @Eru @fjuginI know we have certain progression in Special, still arguments above are valid. ” Valid point. Although it would break the current ordering of u…

  • Quote from Just_Flo: “Quote from Aegon: “Maybe some of you have already seen it, but I wanted to share a video with you: [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHHg99hwQGY[/url] It is highly educational and I think more of the higher ups should learn from the experience of other game designers. I can't emphasize this enough, as I see so many problems in terms of game design (NOT balance of rules/point costs ect). It would be interesting to see how many completely new players will start the 9th age…

  • Latest wdg book, updated yesterday, might have some clues to help us here. It gives answer to hatred and combat reforms at least. Not sure about flaming banner tho

  • Quote from DeBelial: “Unless I'm mistaken, you don't really need item that can store dice to build up veil tokens up to 6 while using Ledger right? Only thing that Veilgate does is to allow keeping up to 6 dice instead up to 3 after siphoning. ” This is correct

  • Quote from Teowulff: “Quote from fjugin: “Data driven algoritm mean looking at data (survey on internal balance, tournament armylists etc) and using this to rank entries from too weak to too strong. Then price updates based on this. ” Interesting. I wonder who are invited for the surveys and what tournaments are taken into consideration as delivering meaningful data sets? And how do you deal with armybook entries that never make it into competitive tournament lists? What I also wonder about is w…
