    well, it's just a random idea rumbling my head for years now. I think it needs a long time to get it balanced. We should be aware that it might become a hard time. And we should be aware of all the consequences before we make such a suggestion to the RT. We should discuss internally all the advantages and disadvantages.

  • And that very hybris could be a reason for other faction's communities not to trust the opinion of one single dedicated player. No offense, probably you're the best player out there and have more expertise than anyone else. I dunno. However, it doesn't matter if we not treat all factions the same. Everywhere someone should be the best. Why not join RT? They will certainly welcome such expertise. I am sure that your feedback about UD and all other factions will be a large help to convince their c…

  • Can you imagine the common whining when all factions get only price reductions, because decisions were made by internal experts? UD only point reductions because UD expert told so. VS only point reductions because VS expert told so....etc

  • I think KoE community is wasting a chance of contributing to the decision process. I read so many rules changes here, which has been 1000 times clarified will not happen in next update. If the community could agree on a points change for Might or whatever is considered as too strong or too weak, that would also find acceptance among other factions communities, then chances are high for this to become reality. But what I read here is the EXACT same argument I read in every other forum. "No, XY is…

    If at all, Goblins should rather go R3 S2 to align them better with Orcs.

    Well, I think it would fit adding at least some sort of tyranid feeling to the VS. Not that heavy insect style, but some more of the "for the swarm" mentality. Commenting my former -1R suggestion. Yes, it was intended as army wide. Characters with R3, Hulks with R4... not sure about demon and towers. I agree, it would be a very deep change with probably unforeseeable results. Maybe it would be very bad for the gameplay. But maybe not. Maybe it would be a really strong benefit for the whole game …

  • Quote from Ganon: “@DanT are you arguing that raw data can be the only way to investigate internal or external balance in a game? I'm not arguing that data doesn't matter, I'm saying a different thing: it can't be the only parameter, or the heaviest in taking conclusions. So, if I have to tell you, you are a scientist but this field of application is not yours. I didn't catch it: are you a psichologist? Because this should be the scientist evaluating data. Don't you agree? No engeneer, no astros…

  • I doubt that any single source of information should be make the decision, neither data nor any veteran. Life is no wish concert as we say in my language. Decisions have to be made with the whole game in mind. Always try to understand how such procedure would look like in the eyes of other factions. If HE players made their own decisions for their army, why should not the same be done for VS (or any other faction) players? We just take the VS player that is perceived as the most experienced, and…

    I think limitations to model count is always a bit problematic because of people's collections. I would always prefer price changes, and still allow theoretical 100 ganshers for those who really want that. Because of low DIS I think it is anyway not very efficient to have 4+ Gnasher blocks.

    Quote from ValourUnbound: “ Quote from arwaker: “Sure, we would suffer more casualties. But that is not as an issue when combined with adequate points and other rules. ” I already have trouble moving around 5x10+ blocks. How much bigger would they have to be with R2?With rules to offset it, sure. But the tabletop is only so big. ” You have trouble having 5 blocks? Maybe VS is not the right army for you :p No, really, having 4 or more blocks of 20+ is something that should be normal for our VS ar…

    An idea for the full book I had a long time ago. People didn't like it that time, but maybe today can get a more differentiated view on it. What if baseline toughness for VS was only 2? Sure, we would suffer more casualties. But that is not as an issue when combined with adequate points and other rules. Would be a straight buff against all enemies attacking with S5 or higher. Spearblocks would be a strong opponent for us, but imagine all those elite infantry and those monsters that suddenly had …

  • I think we could achieve a lot with just those point changes. Internal and external balance could be improved a lot with changes of points.

    Well, redesign is far. But when brainstorming, I would give Ganshers the role of dedicated tarpit eaters. Having not so strong offensive power as now, but getting additional attacks for every wound they do. Like for example killing 23 zombies a turn, but hardly one knight. The role of dedicated can opener should be reserved for Iron Orcs. Those should perform excellent when fighting strong and armored opponents like WdGs and Knights. Not as elite as WdG for sure, but more point efficient when in…

  • As HE are to be the elven faction with most defensive capabilities and highest discipline, I think a spear is not unusual for characters, because it allows wielding a shield (unlike halved and great weapon).

    Quote from Phoenix5: “Even at 13 PPM and no other changes people will still take 100 if they want to. They will have one less magic item in their list or one less bolt thrower, but they will run the same list. more or less what i'm trying to say is that a change of one point wont do anything and any more would nerf them back to the shelves. It sounds to me like your guy's issue is not just the "value per model" but the ability to spam 5 units of them. I can get behind a reasonable limit to how m…

    sure they should be able to voluntarily flee. Either if they are frightened, but also if they get the order to do so.

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “They prefer to use the spear, because there is no equivalent GW enchant...the spear has 0 synnergy with elven combat honours ” not having synergy is not a bad thing. Synergy always limits possibilities of useful combinations.

    Rats believe in the swarm, the greater good. Sometimes rats are even indoctrinated, courageous or stupid enough to sacrifice themselves for the greater good. Goblins always stay individuals and always seek for their personal advantage. The average singular Goblin is maybe even more cunning and dangerous than a single rat. But the rats are a swarm, and as such they work together and achieve in groups something that a bunch of individualistic Goblins never could.

    Well, I don't like our rats to be some kind of hairy Goblins. I think we can definitively be disciplined....soldiers marching in lines, obeying to orders from a strategon (some kind of general that has low combat power but "high" leradership for low cost). We can have a disciplined force. But sometimes everything just goes wrong. Machines exploding, units killing their own leader, betrayal, fear and terror making us flee. We are not as disciplined as Elves, but we are by far more disciplined tha…
