looks a crock of shit to me, and I don't even play Fantasy...

Mobious said...

Hurts my soul. Thank God I do not play Fantasy, and thank God my local gaming group came with minds as standard wargear.

General Rule No9...

Fuck off...

Really?

This shit happens at tournaments? Oh dear...

Brother Loring said...

"Any army list that is considered too overpowered will not be allowed at the tournament.
This decision is made at the tournament organizer's discretion."

Probably the best 2 sentences I've ever seen!

If you're good enough to use the rules to your advantage don't bother coming!

I can't wait for the Taliban to say, "Hey, sorry, we're not fighting you if you're using targeted air strikes. That is just not fair!"

Farmpunk said...

Fantasy's pretty f-dup as far as balance goes. armchair generals 'balancing' it doesn't help imho.

why are we competing again?

you know how much people would bitch if these same rules were applied to PAINT?

Dverning said...

My train of thought:
NY is too far away and I'd rather hit the Met...
2250? Kinda heavy if this is a 40K event...
Oh, wait, Fantasy. Blech. That's a kinda weedy size...
Looks fine, looks fine, Rule 9... FULLSTOPWHATTHEFUCK?!?

*sigh* Subjective comp that can potentially d/q you??? What utter crap.

Chumbalaya said...

Ugh, tell me about it. The sad part is, the local scrubs are eating this shit up.

Did anybody manage to get far enough to where they give examples of armies and how they comp? They are most amusing. 6 Stegadon Lizzies got the banhammer :P

The_King_Elessar said...

Yeah, now, as I understand it, 6 Steggies is pretty solid - but only if no-one takes Daemons, and DE have some sort of arbitrary ban on Repeater Bolt Throwers. Oh, and Stem Tanks are 0-1.

That about right?

Chumbalaya said...

6 Steggies is basically a rock army. 6 big mosnters that can smash up in HtH and do decent in shooting with no real Static combat res or much magic beyond the requisite Engine for defense.

So yeah, so long as nobody fields the counter to it, it stomps. Too bad plenty of armies have the tools to fight it.

But hey, knowing about your army and learning to beat powerful armies with a balanced force and sound strats? Fuck that, let's just ban it!

The_King_Elessar said...

So you just need Fast Cav to flank it. Or better Magic. FFS...

Von said...

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. I wouldn't have minded, but those sausages were dubious enough on the way down...

I wonder how you'd get a Dark Elf army above 10 in their system?

SMreferee said...

Sweet Jesus. I live in Northern New York, and this is exactly the sort of shit I've been trying to stamp out. I managed to get myself elected as 40k TO, so I abolished the rubbish like this. But Syracuse still uses comp, and pretty much all of Rochester, Buffalo, and I think Albany are fucking laden with comp scores. I think i remember hearing about a tourney in Rochester with like 25% comp :(
