  • DE 2.1 Balance Patch

    WhammeWhamme - - Dread Elves (DE)

    Post

    Quote from Ctuchik: “I wonder if Raven Cloaks would be broken with scoring. They kind of feel like a commando style unit, go in, grab an objective, get out. Is there any precedent for a scout, light troop, scoring unit? ” No, but Ambush Scoring is a thing. Which leads me to "Ambush, Strider, Scoring" as their design. Which seems like a cool idea actually.

  • Nobody knows.

  • Quote from clorens: “that's what scares me the most, that the appearance of the classic units is completely changed until the spirit of the army is completely unrecognizable ” WDG and DL have been released. If a similar treatment for the other 14 books would scare you, be very afraid, because that's what going to happen, even if it does drive away the entire player base. Otherwise be chill and wait, because that's about all you can do.

  • Quote from clorens: “and why a survey is not done on whether the community wants the backgrounds next to the lab or prefers to be left for later and focus efforts on advancing the labs and matter fixed? ” Because that isn't the choice. The choice would be between "slow and with background", or "slow and without background". There is no way to "focus more effort" and write books faster and to the same standards of rules rigour. I mean jeez. GW just said today "we're going to be doing something wi…

  • Eldan? Apply. Now. There's never been "now recruiting BGT members, Our Standards Are Low!" sign out, but it's never been closed to the right person volunteering.

  • The Balancing Team was dissolved and their functions (and membership) rolled into LAB teams and the RT.

  • Quote from Malda: “ it cannot be that, when you are among the best players in the world and want to help out, that you cannot, unless you have some art/layout skills and apply for such work and do it for a year first... ” There are certainly places the project could use your expertise - the External Experts panel can use it, the playtesting teams could use some manpower, especially top-level-tournament-player manpower, to give good feedback. BUT. The question was "what can I do to speed up produ…

  • Quote from Zorin: “Quote from Ghiznuk: “Quote from Zorin: “my primary army, SA, have gone from enigmatic defenders of the world to decadent former tyrants. No, that is not what my army is to me and as a result I lost all interest to new fluff. ” Seriously ?? Maybe you didn't read their fluff in the NS16. Also read the fluff about the Cuatls in NS17 (answers by the Sage) – mysterious, isn't it ?They are still what they were. Except they were given a darker twist. Because in a wargame, we need eve…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “@WhammeWhamme Can't say I understood all the metaphors (though I did enjoy reading it), but going back to this thread authors and the topic at hand (they want more balance updates). What would be the thing they could help? Is it by joining the playtesting team? After all they see themselves as accomplished die hard tournament players (aka Spikes), which should help. ” More balance updates = more point changes? Get enough people to lobby for it. The current rate of point chan…

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “People grumble about "secret background" but honest to heavens it exists. ” Don't just create stories, send out some of that background. Honestly just waiting for stories to collect snippets of background isnt going to cut it. ” Not my call to make.

  • Quote from Phosphorus: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Quote from Mercenary Armies: “What about Army out without art with rules update? When the artists are ready.. Make an artist edition. Speaking about art and bg. The fluff. I think that this game needs a bg and visual art for keep going, otherwise it's only matter of numbers. I am not a painter, I have a degree in history of art. IN MY OPINION (so somebody don't waste time replying instead painting ) With the world hymn we touch the climax about t…

  • Oh yeah, that's also a good point: "Bartender" is in fact a position so desired, so desirable, that people "earn" their spots "up front" by working elsewhere and doing a good job. "I want to help, but only if I get to be in charge of everything" isn't a real helper's attitude. People on the LAB teams have spent a lot of time learning how to do it properly and work with the project as a whole. They have skills, and expertise, relating specifically to how the project does things. If you want to he…

  • The problem is not a lack of people who want to write rules, the problem is not even a lack of people working on background and art (although it would help to have more redundancy there). The current delay people are railing against is the fault of neither kitchen staff nor bartenders, but the fact that three hours ago (last year or two) some health inspectors came through (Gold Edition needed RT oversight, as did the updates) and took away all the drink containers for testing (caused significan…

  • Quote from Mirdhynn: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Quote from Mirdhynn: “@WhammeWhamme Separate background from play will not lead to satisfaction (as I said, most of your players now are competitors and don't care of background. It's too late). Allow people to include background in their lists will satisfy many one. This is basically what GW do with chapters, hive fleets special rules. This is basically what is done with UD book : general army list, barrows one, and terracotta one. ” As DarkSky sa…

  • Quote from Mirdhynn: “Quote from DanT: “T9a wants to be, and should be, more than just an ETC/competitive tournament game. ” Sorry to be so direct, but this is actually not the case.I don't live in Spain but in north of France. All the game is focused on team tournament. Perhaps this was not the goal, and T9A team want to make a complete game, but - Balance using tournament datas and claim it - Make incomprehensible points update, based on most used units, giving the feeling that it was just mad…

  • Quote from Palmu: “Yet that's been the plan for nearly three years now, especially you should be aware of that, @WhammeWhamme, given that you have access to those discussions. ” Plans can change. Pretty sure "handle the elves as a batch" was a part of those plans too. Three years ago, most of the BG on UD and VC was placeholders, and they were tentatively tied together (in BG) more closely than (after review) actually seemed necessary or best practice. Surely it's better that the UD LAB Team wou…

  • Quote from Palmu: “The background basically must be written simultaneously for both, because both armies function within the same rules within the SETTING, and any changes to mechanical parts of Undeath must be agreed upon by the teams of both armybooks as well as the background team. If they are not done at the same time, then neither the VC team or UD team will be able to make any sort of changes to how Undeath functions rules wise, because the book that isn't updated would then be affected by…

  • Quote from Villon: “The community is big and diverse, the head of the project have a plan, and is focused, that seems clear. (maybe i don't read everything on the forum and i don't know the timeline) Another question for me is. Ok the teams are working in new books (ID + DE) and in parallell we will start soon working in other books to avoid delays and be more effective creating new ones. Is possible to know if the release of ID + DE will be done only when all work is finished? or, we will have …

  • Quote from The Changing Constant: “@gundizalbo, there are allot more underused entries then problematic entries. I am slightly skeptical that the project will be able to release 3 books a year given there current rate with only one book being released. ” Please read my other posts to the thread where I explain that the current lack of progress is due to Gold Edition and it's associated rules updates shutting down everything else. (Like, they had to put together a completely new ID team)
