@Just_Flo if needed i can insert casual games too, if we need more data. Because actually is not enough data to say ID are op/upCan you please link the 3rd Tourney Freddy played ID in under the current ruleset?And yes we weekly update performance and list data.
Shortly before the prices are set we will also test linking performance to unit entries. I have been working on making such things possible since last year.
But that direct linking increases the error barsch and reduces the weight.
Currently eleminating Freddys results would reduce ID performance but till now only 1 Tourney in my database has ID as not overperforming that would not change mich.
Of course as more and more results come in it is still possible that ID performance drops a lot.
Lets see what france UB Tourneys, US summercamp and what else ended this week will bring.
Just at the moment ID up is not data supported.
But we have enough data to say that no one is taking Immortals, and imho is not because they are bad (they can be better for sure) but the real problem is that we pay a core tax, you need to fill with core units, and now our core units are OSOM.
IW are cheap, and powerful and can shoot like daemons
CG with pistols are cheap, shoot, hit you hard...
Why anyone will pick another infantry block? When you can pick monsters? Arty? Engines? Characters?
IF greybeards (still in core) would get plate armour and pistols, spears or 18" m&s range-weapons ... i would never field DW or KG ever again. I would gladly fill the rest of my list with warmachines, copters, miners and chars. And i see the same for ID right now. As long as the core remains as it is, immortals (in my humble opinion) will be extreeeemly hard to balance to find a spot in the lists without making them a unkillable deathstar.
ps: No, i dont judge if the core is too strong/weak/cheap/expensive, and i also dont want to point fingers.
But the LAB Team created their own "monster" with a core like this. I think its nearly the same issue (atleast mine) with the Chosen from wotdg. Why should i field chosen, if i alrdy have my brick with the same equipment/same task in core?
