I tried making a big earlier for post launch and a couple battalions for extra artefacts and command traits but I seems to have actually not made it? Weird memory is weird :worried:

@/all, OK, the release is drafted, I'm going to push it at around 11am UTC. Get your PRs in before then!

@Mad-Spy Did we want to change the readme text any?

Too late, it's shipped now! I think it's good for now.

What’s the timeframe on release to repo to publish... its been a while since I’ve looked
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 25 2018 11:12
Depends. Can be 6 hours.
could be shorter
I knocked up a quick multi-faction roster building instructions on the wiki

@OftKilted it can be anywhere from 4-24 hours
Depending on whether appspot has a heart attack and forgets the repo is a thing or not
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 11:16
LoL
This is actually really exciting. :smile: The repo has been ... rather quiet for a whole bunch.
How does one determine the level of amnesia that AppSpot has?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 11:20
It has
I’m excited to tell my local AoS group they can stop paying for azyr
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 11:23
Does Azyr track total wounds?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 11:29
Nope
Number of models and points
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 11:30
Interesting.
Well ... it would be possible to add a total model count as a “Point cost” if we wanted/needed to match that functionality
I know that the warscroll website does total wounds
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 11:33
I don’t think anyone pays attention to the model count
That’s the azyr output
Sorry display
This is the output
Either way I don’t see a need for alt points
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 11:40
The total quantity is useful. But not killer.
Azyr does have actual game types for non-Matched play then?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 11:47
I think the only alt points that I’m seriously considering attempting to figure out is how to do Skirmish

Well done everyone by the way! :+1:

@FreylisUK It’s pretty exciting, imo
@alphalas What’s the difference between the Matched Play and Open Play in the Azyr app?
Simon Barlow

@OftKilted ...until the bug reports start coming in :smile:

@FreylisUK heh heh. We’ve done a pretty reasonable job imo.
If nothing else, At least it’s more accurate than the current data
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 13:56
@OftKilted it removes the allies points line and doesn’t validate the list in open that’s the only difference
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 13:56
Wow. That doesn’t do much.
Does it remove the leader/battleline/Behemoth lines?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 13:58
No everything is still sorted by roles
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 25 2018 14:05
^^ This is why I didn't really think that we needed to remove it.
I imagine that the vast majority of people still use points, even in "Open Play", unless they're playing a specific scenario.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
May 25 2018 14:05
Exactly

Interesting comment in the Sylvaneth preview: that the Artefacts are based on where your army hails from ... not where you are fighting
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
May 25 2018 17:23
I think it's both.
There will be a new set of artefacts based on battleground.
Rick Weyrauch

I am wondering how the new summoning rules will balence out. Can all factions do some type of summoning?
I’m all for the creation of new units of horrors with the DoT Ogroid Thaumaturge spell
And anything to make summoning somewhat better for Khorne would be good
It’s been identified that Seraphon and Sylvaneth on the order side will have summoning

We probably want to set the SCE to have Stormcast Allegiance not Order​​​​​​​
Rick Weyrauch
@rweyrauch
May 25 2018 23:29
@OftKilted As the default allegiance?
OftKilted
@OftKilted
May 25 2018 23:30
Well, If I’m taking an SCE Army ... why give it only order allegiance?
More of a “If I’m taking sub faction x” why not make the default faction x?
Order as default limits artefact/Allegiance traits etc. when quick creating a list. (Had someone point that out on TGA. They thought SCE was busted because they didn’t realize how to change the allegiance

It's easy to change.
