  • Quote from Firthunands91: “Have to agree with herminard. He compares prices with things that are op and will get nerfed, or are key in other people armies and are priced accordingly to their book. You can't have the good toys from everyone, and add them to the current strengths of the army. Then yeah, in his current list of any of you it might mean a 50-60 points drop, but it's not like if you start pricing all the items at 30-50 points, and reducing by 30-50% de point of mounts or honors, you a…

  • Quote from DanT: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “I feel I’m short a unit or two units in about every game I play. ” Your US ETC team have made a document with a lot of advice/tips in it as part of their preparation this year. You might find some of it quite helpful. I dno if they are releasing it freely to the community, but perhaps you could get in touch and ask them about it. If you aren't sure who to ask, let me know and I'll tag them for you. Although I think some of them might be on the ETC…

    Quote from Warboss Tooth: “Quote from Firthunands91: “Super strong tournament for the greenskins! Congratulations to all, especially @Warboss Tooth after doubting about his list, 24th overall with 87 points! ” *cough cough* not bad for the weakest ong list of the tournament ” How many matches were green lit? What did arguably your best boi play against? He got fed to the wolves day one. Lol Quote from Phoenix5: “When Gnashers were 13 points and no one took them. They got bumped down to 12 and al…

  • My BattleScribe exploded. I have no clue what’s wrong. Edit: after fresh sober eyes I’m getting a “database corruption error” regardless where, index from.

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “50-150 more like, so basically 100 points (or ~ 1 eagle). Aka 2.2% ” I’d say 300 points. Especially in the character slot. Would free up choices there, and allow for more mobile characters as well as filling out a unit in special without sacrificing chaff. 100 points gets an Eagle, and the other 150 gets you 5 FW or LG, or let’s you take more reavers from core forgo the special chaff, and play around with taking a Phoenix or Ryma Knights without sacrificing your ability to ex…

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “And myself? 8 months ago I said a majority of the HBE book is 5-15% overpriced and a select few honors, and underpriced. ” I think people are wary of agreeing with you because 5-15% (should we just say 10%?) is massive ;)You're basically stating a (currently) 5000 pt HbE list competes at the same level as everyone else at 4500. T9A balance is very close, these kind of changes are way OTT. For example, the point adjustments @Furion is listing for…

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from KiRaHyuU: “Isn’t that basically worse than what we have right now. Cause it only benefits Hexes/Damage vs currently which is everything. Plus that wouldn’t combine with Book of Arcane Mastery since there’s a +2 cap on casting. ” what do you mean worse than what we got now? ....this isn't going to replace what -1 dispel from enemy. And it helps stuff like acolytes.Remember that everyone's magic is pretty average compared to each other except for DL. The guidelin…

  • Quote from Arthur: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “Additionally I think Belgium’s list is excellent and will finish well (pending player skill if it’s the Arthur here then who knows), as will UN list Nikita(?) whoever. ” Not sure if this is an awkwardly phrased compliment or a thinly veiled insult but lists like mine don't score high, they play far too difficult matches for that, and are too much geared towards being happy with 8 14 points. It unfortunately looks like Nikita will have to drop ou…

  • I’m irritated this caching system for commenting system in the forum. This is like the fourth time I’ve responded to multiple 10+ lengthy quotes over the past month, only for my response to delete itself, become uncached mid typing. Thus, instead TLDR my thoughts: -@Fnarr I think Furions list while garbage in my eyes is going to finish well so I didn’t include him in my original thoughts. The two lists I think that are creative is the x11 Spear blocks with magic and x40 RH, and Turkeys all mobil…

  • Quote from ninepaces: “Are you saying LoL and MTG have had "their products or ideas largely abandoned or heavily walked back" (your words)? Trying to understand you. And second, you have proof for this? ” Yes? Uh. . . Magic Arena less than 3 months ago with the banning of Nexus in singles? It’s common knowledge that game like MtG, and Overwatch balance with middling tiers in mind. Furthermore, statements that Furion made in regards to Starcraft are effectually void as SC has less variables and p…

  • Quote from Ganon: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “Quote from Cealyne: “To change the subject a bit... The ID spoilers... Any1 feel that the army might be getting stronger? The idea of customization for shooting seems strong. I’m not saying the sky is falling but... dang. ” There’s a reason why there is tiers currently:S, A, B, and C. And it’s not a coincidence the new books are in S. This being said we know nothing of the new ID, and the rules that are being released for them. Let’s not be conce…

  • Quote from irvingberlin: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “Tracks should be spelt Tracts* just a heads up. I’ll talk with the D9AC. ” Frickin' teacher can't even use the right words . . . No thats not right. This can be a teaching moment. Here Phil : Track vs.Tract: How to Choose the Right Word ” Its okay, it’s every teacher has a mentor.

  • Tracks should be spelt Tracts* just a heads up. I’ll talk with the D9AC.

  • @LenTheTyrant I’ll pm Jeff off forum tomorrow and include you in it. It would be up to James, and I don’t have any of his contact info.

  • Quote from Cealyne: “To change the subject a bit... The ID spoilers... Any1 feel that the army might be getting stronger? The idea of customization for shooting seems strong.

  • @Truckeye I’m pretty sure it’s too late at this point to go back, and I haven’t looked at what @eggsPR needed to take best VC so I need to apologize. However, Mr. Starr and I didn’t correctly add up the points from our game. It was a 18-2, but shouldn’t have been a 15-5 loss on my side. We didn’t count his Graveguard. 2,383 v 1,497 +3 to Mr. Starr for the objective. I just noticed it as I was going back through doing a write up for the tactics page in HBE. Edit: It wouldn’t have mattered. It jus…

  • Quote from thedoctor: “It’s just ws3... so you miss 50% unless you can get a spell up ” Yeah, but that could be said of a lot of units in the game currently. Especially ones that cost more.

  • Quote from Henrypmiller: “Quote from cptcosmic: “Quote from Henrypmiller: “Within the interest of keeping this thread (slightly) more palatable. If you could make one change to the current book, what would it be? Specifically? ” one change? that is not fair :D... well then... the change I propose is a better book ... and now seriously: get rid of the junk we call "commander" ” So you would rather pay the prince cost for your bsb caster? Id prefer a cheaper chasis, personally (as now). ” Yes I wo…

  • Quote from Henrypmiller: “Within the interest of keeping this thread (slightly) more palatable. If you could make one change to the current book, what would it be? Specifically? ” You are going to get so many people with design changes. Thus let me ask: -Is it a points change? -Rule Design change? -Either or? If one can assume that all HBE units are 5-15% over costed book wide (as I prior mentioned 6 months ago, and we get that reduction post ETC -in fact all elf units DE and SE I feel are over …

  • My opinion is different. I don’t feel that 2.0 is as good as 1.1. 1.1 was the pinnacle, and were still trying to get back to that fun. Mechanics in the game are now better, and the game as whole is more polished, general game balance with the main rulebook is more balanced than ever as well. However, changes to less powerful magic, more comprehensive, but harder to apply rules, a disparity between S tier and C tier armies is present now more than it was in 1.1. Furthermore, while some of the Gol…
