    2. The biggest problem with chest clock is that people will actively game them. They will try to make their opponent’s clock run out. “Hey can you meassure the 9” from your models” “No, I want your timer to run out. Your fault for bringing in deepstrike”
    Yes, that has happened to me. So hope it doesn’t create more Tony moments. Unless they lead to more happy children.

      This. So much this. I was playing and Infinity Tournament last weekend and brought a Limited Insertion list (for non Infintiy players, that is the tightest possible army composition with fastest play) to make absolutely sure I’d always be on time. I do not play regularly enough and did not want to cause problems for anyone.
      So I ran into another list that just forced so much trouble that it actively syphoned of time with the sheer number of angles to consider, markers to avoid, etc. Now, 40k is simpler than that but you can definitely slow play someone else’s turn. Hell, I knew people who took what felt like half a year just to make their armor saves.

      • rvd1ofakind March 1, 2018 1:46 am #

        You switch to your opponents clock when they make saves, so that’s fine.

    • Ishagu March 1, 2018 7:38 am #

      You can try to game them all you want, but it will still be far better than the current system where some players spend over an hour on a single turn, boring their opponents senseless and making the experience frustrating.

      You only pass the clock on your turn for the opponent to make saves, and if they are rolling slow they suffer for it, not you.

      • Reecius March 1, 2018 9:03 am #

        Yeah, your opponent not helping you measure your distances is hardly gaming the clock, you are responsible for that. If someone is being rude then hey, probably going to be an unpleasant game regardless of format.

    What about other time saving measures like dice rolling apps?

    I’m still a newbie in the active community (glued my first model in Nov and played my first league game about 4 weeks ago) so apologies in advance if I don’t know all the background and history if this has been previously discussed.

    It seems the peace offering you can give to horde players (and others if they want) is permission to speed the game along with an extra tool.

    I saw there is an official GW dice rolling app but it appears outdated (recent reviews complain about scatter dice and no recent updates)

    I think Pablo touched on this during one of his Chapter Tactics podcasts. His co-host (memory has faded sorry don’t know who…the guy who plays orks) said it was a physics engine based app not a RNG so it was a better dice app or something.

      Dice rolling game. Using an app feels against everything the game stands for.

      • Reecius March 2, 2018 11:57 am #

        How so? GW made a dice rolling app, so they obviously intend for it to be used with their game.

        It’s weird the resistance to the app. I mean, I love rolling dice too but mathematically it is good to roll lots of dice as it events out variability as you go up, but rolling that many dice is cumbersome. So an app helps you power through those big rolls faster.

        @Agent X

        The GW dice app is legal to use, it’s an official product.

        And welcome to the hobby!

    So local RTT tournaments in the Bay Area are getting sold put over a week in advance now with full capacity. The last time I was told there was no more room was way back in 3rd edition. So to all you tournament players: if you know about a tournament coming up that has pre registration, try to sign up as soon as t is available. A lot of stores only have a max of 16 players, which hopefully expands world wide. Last 2 I played in were also full. This edition really brought back players old and new ones are surfacing fast. This might literally be the golden age of 40k.

      Yeah, that is true all over the place, the game is mega popular right now and just going bonkers in popularity.
