Sounds like a fun little event, but the ban of special characters really pisses me off. It's fucking arbitrary as shit and belies a general lack of understanding of the game. I play Loganwing and Bloodwing, one of my buddies plays Deathwing, so fuck us right? If you stock special characters and fully intend to have people buy them, then you had better fucking let them be used.
The ban on dupes is an attempt to keep spam away, but then you're just fucking over the older armies with fewer choices. Guess my nids, DA and Daemons can sit this out too.
I'm not sure if I want to go, but I'll be putting up potential lists with minimal purchases required. I have absolutely no desire to drop a bunch of coin because all the armies I have already bought are invalidated. Anything I do buy is coming from another store, second hand or the Warstore.
Anybody got any ideas?
