    Increase the cost of reaper launcher to 30 points , tempest launcher to 35 and nerf the Inescapable Accuracy to +1 hit.

    Than increase the base cost of shining terminators from 18 to 25-28. Because any 16″ flying terminator with 2W 4T and 3+ (4++ shooting) and 2 chainfist atacks would probably cost a lot more.

    And than both of them would never reach finals :).

      Or just require them to be on their flight bases like every other model had to be based or wave serpents missing turrets lol

    • Reecius February 9, 2018 2:25 pm #

      Most of the top players at the LVO actually stated their Shining Spears were more important to achieving victory than the Reapers were.

    Nerf this crap allready!!

    Next up will be dark eldar that will bring even more op toys for the broken manure that is the ynnari roflstomp machine.

    Crap like this is what kicks the fun out of this game.

    All in one the Eldar codex has very generous point costs. I just wonder how many more tiny eldar models i have on table compared to my brothers space marines. (Buying them and painting them is another story which brings the whole thing into a different Games Workshop perspective :)). Each and every stratagem on 3 pages is good for eldar. If u read the space marine codex u just scratch your head.
    Right now its better to go with blood angels or dark angels than the space marine codex. Jaghatai Khan runnig behind your white scar bikers ? No thanks, just take the ravenwing.

    Necrons, Tau and drukhari will probably send the space marine codex even deeper into the warp.

      White Scars are arguably a much better bike army than Ravenwing is, since they can can fall back from combat and still assault. They have an identical stratagem for advance + shoot/assault normally and good alternatives across a variety of utility stratagems to compare to the DA versions.

      Just because Space Marines proper didn’t make it to _this_ specific top 8 doesn’t mean they’re garbage; they have made major appearances at many other 8E events prior to this, and the meta may well shift again to bring them back.

      It’s funny how quickly people forget all the shouts of “ZOMG GHILLIEMAN IS THE BEST MOST BROKEN THING EVER” and are ready to chase whatever new thing the internet tells them is ruining the game.

        The ITC rules prefer army with lots of cheap and strong models to cover board control and get lots of points. It just points out the strongest units in game.
        You are right it doesnt show a real maelstorm card game and its randomness for which the 8th was designed.

        The London GT will be much better in this regard.

        • Laurence February 10, 2018 4:21 am #

          Disagree. I’ll be playing in the London GT and I just wish Zach made it ITC. Generally speaking, random maelstrom diminishes the competitiveness of the game

          • Zool February 10, 2018 4:59 am

            So does random D6 dice , random terrain or random matchups against the worst army combination.
            And with 100 points from 200 for the game itself and rest is painting, sportmanship and army list there will be a lot more exotic army lists and less 3 color models.

          • abusepuppy February 10, 2018 5:12 am

            It sounds like you’re more interested in a hobby event than a competitive tournament- which is fine, but let’s not pretend that one is the other.

            The LVO Open is explicitly a competitive event. While many players can and do bring beautiful models to it (witness Israel’s various armies over the last several years, for example) it is first and foremost about competition. Going to it and complaining that players are putting the game first and hobby second is like going to a burger joint and complaining they don’t have seafood- you’re missing the reason for its existence.

        I think that the Ravenwing is the stronger Bike army. The Jink save is a massive durability boost to the Ravenwing Bikers. I have both a Ravenwing and White Scars Bike army, but my White Scars bikers are suffering in 8th edition. The extra wound is nice, but I find my opponents don’t have too much bother taking down a 5 man Bike squad. They can fall back and still assault, but with only 2 attacks each (assuming you give them a Chainsword and not a special weapon), I don’t find they do all that much in combat.

        I still like the White Scars, but am looking towards trying out their strengths in the new edition of the game, but unfortunately I don’t think Bike squads are it.

    True. SM aside..wanna see what a complete garbage 8th codex looks like, ancient, inefficient, outclassed and outdated in every single aspect then look at the poor GKs.

    Try playing them against eldar or ynnari and piss yourself in disbelief at the lows of 8th. Its basically “eldar vs orks 7th” all over gain.

    • abusepuppy February 9, 2018 5:21 pm #

      You are an angry, angry little man, aren’t you?

      • Don Tomaso February 9, 2018 6:53 pm #

        Keep guessing 😛

      • Laurence February 10, 2018 4:19 am #

        I was wondering how long it would be for Don’s unique cocktail of furious butthurt rage and salt to return

  5. Don Tomaso February 10, 2018 10:19 am #

    You snowflakes are SO fun to poke at. The inevitable butthurt whining from people that have zero counter arguments always manages to crawl out out every single time one uses a few strong sounding words just for the fun of it and the whining replies they bring forth are often pretty amusing 😛

    You KNOW this is mostly for fun right? Right?
    I can point out the flaws in the game in many different ways (and I have) DO realize that it is your predicable whiny, overly offended, outraged reactions and personal insults make this particular one the most fun?

    Heck, it would be like I dont know, selling the same bridge to a retard watching him buy it every single time 🙂
    I write a strong word and then the fun begins, how long will it take and which particular soyboy in here will inevitably reply and by using exactly what derogatory guess about my personality or life situation as an “argument”!
    Its like fishing blind clueless fish, they dont even manage to see the bait so anything can be used.

    Sue me for trolling a few snowflake soyboys, mentioning the problems in 8th in “normal” constructive ways “way back then” didnt produce any form of counter argument other then “everything is so strong” or complete silence because I was right (as shown by the later CA point changes) so I might as well have some fun and poke at easily enraged snowflakes that start whining the second I use the word “crappy” because the insulting personal replies and desperate guesses about my person really make it worth it.

    Keep it up..and remember snowflakes, you really need to conjure up some personal insults about my life to make yourself feel better 🙂

    • AngryPanda February 10, 2018 8:31 pm #

      If this is seriously that much fun to you, you must be in such a sad place. And really what sort of personal insults could anyone come up with that would make someone look worse than the copy-pasted rant of every alt-right keyboard warrior ever.
      You can call your fish blind and clueless but at the end of the day, you go home with a bucket full of imaginary internet points you scored in your head. Call people snowflakes all you like but that is just sad.
      This is all from someone who thinks 8th edition is a garbage fire and hasn’t exactly been silent about that opinion on here. Do you even realise that this is Frontline’s private space and them letting criticism stand is entirely their own free decision? You are in someone else’s store, insulting their customers, over a miniature game.
      You tough guy are complaining about getting some backlash if you go to a place full of fans and say what they like is crap. No shit, if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen and all that.

      • Michael Corr February 11, 2018 3:53 am #

        Can we just not take the bait any more? You are never going to convince him otherwise and he admits to getting a kick out of baiting people. Just scroll past his comments without even reading them.

    • Krisbot4000 February 11, 2018 3:08 pm #

      That’s some sad shit man.

    Aww..little soyboy conveniently “forgot” to add his own little insult:
    “You are an angry, angry little man, aren’t you?”

    I was not the first one using insults snowflake. Cant take it but happily dish it out? I know I know, I did mention this thing about getting a spine right? Besides that term “hypocrite”, look it up. You might actually learn something.

    ..aaaand STILL no argument to meet my gk points with. Qute 🙂

    “Can we just not take the bait any more?”

    That would spoil the fun. The fragile teenagers are still buying the same bridge no matter how many time I sell it 😛

    But yes, in not even bothering to read what I say you actually dont have to face up to my points about codex imbalances and you save face not having to face up to the fact that you dont have anything in the way of arguments to bring.

    You can all keep being clueless fanboy cheerleaders.
    Nice huh?

    • Laurence February 11, 2018 10:14 pm #

      I missed you Don lol.

      In all seriousness I do actually agree with you about grey knights, their codex struggles. I’d keep hope that March will bring some points drops though.

      • Don Tomaso February 12, 2018 5:58 pm #

        Why thankyou 🙂

        You know I´m just doing this for the fun of it right? Because some soyboy moron fanboy in here without testicles nor brain cells always manages to buy the entire range of bridges I blatantly sell. Trolling has never been this fun outside the internet then in here 🙂

        I mean just look at the latest little cupcake in here.
        1: I say GKs are crap (and I am right)
        2: I get insulted in return, no arguments to meet my points, just a personal insult thrown my way.
        3: The soyboy that insulted me out of the blue starts whining about me r e p l y i n g in a mean manner.

        You just cant make this up even if it so was scripted by the eeevil Russkies 😛

        Joking aside, yes. GKs are outdated, utter crap suffering from all kinds of sub par imbalances both external and internal. There is not a single shooty weapon option worth taking for example.

        Simply looking at the number one SM fan board (bolter and chainsword) in their GK section watching how they basically tell new players to quit GKs becaus geedub pisses on them speaks volumes.

        Then when you mention it in here you are faced with either personal insults or total silence because the fanboys in here simply cannot meet this fact with any arguments what so ever and you know, saying that 8th still has big flaws and unplayable codexes in it is utter taboo in here where everything is sooooo strong.
        Before CA that basically proved all my points correct by adjusting every single thing I mentioned before I at least got some feeble replies at arguments that tried to shoot me down, now its just snowflake insults because the cheerleaders cant handle the truth.

        A “real” forum would at least dare talk about things that are still broken in the game instead of pretend nothing is wrong.

        The GKs cannot be fixed by a simple point drop, the codex is a nightmare of lazy design, unworkable units and codex creep that has left them in the dust making them basically 7ed orks.

        I could talk a lot about the whys and reasons for this but in here it is just a complete waste of time, besides, I´m not in a habit of throwing pearls to fanboy swine.

        Look up the BnC GK section threads ranging back to the CA and prior about many good summaries of what is wrong with the GK codex.

        People are so fed up with the crap they are given that there are currently will-gw-fix-gk-in-march jokes that would be quite funny werent they so bitter and sarcastic.

        But again, no points mentioning it here in everything is sooo strong nothing to see move along central.

        • Laurence February 13, 2018 4:51 am #

          You don’t do yourself any favours though do you? You throw personal insults around like it’s going out of style yet you get so so angry when you get trolled.

          It’s been said before but if you want credibility and for people to take your arguments seriously, you need to act like a grown up
