Whilst the meek sit safe in their homes and offices I have braved where only the foolish dare tread in the search of articles of (at least partial) interest in the parsnip soup of detritus and rage that accounts for what little of the internet isn't taken up with Facebook games and po rn.
|The price of art|
Personally been caught up in ETC-prep and work. Our last practice weekend was at Warhammer World this weekend just gone (too much tequila and balls-to-face, perhaps not enough warhammer), so wasn't there to see the Midlands event (which was meant to be the last 8th event, but now there is one in October too). Daemons won it, so not very exciting in the end high level wise (the nature of the win makes me want to look at the comp pack again and see if there were some comp loopholes, or whether it was simply German efficiency).
I would look further into AoS, but not only am I busy, I want to leave a bit of time for more to be out/more games having been played. I may also look at a couple of other games, but who knows.
In other news:
s I have learnt this week:
Apparently The Hobbit has quite the vibrant tournament scene in the UK. Seriously, who knew!?
- Deathwatch, the new game by the creators of the incredibly fun WarhammerQuest game, a game about... the Deathwatch... is proving incredibly good. Try it out. Just watch out for the damned Carnifex...
- Debate of the week within the England ETC team (rather than discuss the intricacies of ETC lists/matchups):
What is the best GW-related cinematic scene?
|Warhammer Total War|
|Mark of Chaos|
|Warhammer Online Age of Reckoning|
|Dawn of War|
I think my vote (based on impact of first viewing) has to be either Dawn of War or Mark of Chaos.
Today's main story:
Today I stumbled upon an article from The Dice Abide ( http://www.thediceabide.com ). A blog I associate more with 40k, its subject matter was something I have been thinking about - Points.
I have been rather fascinated with the Points issue that has exploded since the release of AoS. Those that know me will not be surprised by the fact I love looking at ideas that fundamentally challenge the validity of accepted truths (heck, I am even on record for changing my mind at least twice based on well reasoned internet arguments - I worry that such flexibility of thought will see me banned from forums... but so far so good).
So, all credit for the stuff in the box goes to Adam and The Dice Abide, whose views are their own. I found it interesting. Brought to you without the added spice of Trolls. If you want those, check out the original!
Personally I see points as nothing other than the most basic of balancing mechanisms.
I do, however, think that GW need to put *something* out, fast, or momentum for their new game will be likely die...
Until next time
