Sweet baby Cthulu is there still discussion with baconcatbug
I just got a long email thread indication that yes there is
I'll scores my mind here since reason and logic seem to be at home here
Leman Russ tanks have names based on turret weapon. You purchase a squad of 1-3 LR tanks. The kind of tank can be any of the variants.
The UI/UX is fine. Not every idea submitted by an end user is a good one. Now should we consider changing what we've done one person doesn't like it
Unfortunately this is a case of The Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules

@CrusherJoe I asked two guard players at my local about it today during a tournament, and they actually voted leaving it as is
for a simple but effective reason

@WindstormSCR
Dec 11 2017 02:41
because otherwise they both said they'd have to resort to custom names
to keep things straight when viewing mobile lists
so I'd close it and keep things as they are
I don't play guard but that's my (actually professional) opinion

hi guys
hey, I notice the Thunder hammer on Wulfen isn't updated, so I updated it. Should I do a pull request? (related to #1979, but that didn't include hammers)
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe

I think the price of Wulfen is correct now, at least TH/SS ones
SS = 5 TH = 16, correct?

@ilaunchbury - I noticed the Death Guard Troop's are missing some keywords. I've created issue #2017 listing the problem. Also if you would like me to work on this then I have already created a commit file #1990 which should solve the issue. In the description it lists all the changes I made so if you are currently working on something else then it might be easier to add those options to your version instead of merging. I created pull request #1990 from Death Guard v24. -- Issues HQ #1995 Troops #2017.

I can't scroll back far enough, but did someone say Successor Chapters in the new BA codex were ... neutered somewhat ? (Flesh Tearers as example) .. I can't see anything in there that nerfs them ? am I missing it
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 11 2017 15:33
i think its that they dont have the BA keyword, so a bunch of stuff that specifically requires BA units/detachments/characters doesnt work RAW

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Dec 11 2017 15:41

ahhh I see so by doing the following " BLOOD ANGELS
SUCCESSOR CHAPTERS

If a unit is drawn from a Blood Angels
successor Chapter, simply substitute the
‘BLOOD ANGELS’ keyword on the datasheet
with the name of your Blood Angels
successor Chapter." they actually lose access to anything that originally had the Blood Angels keyword ... yeah that would do it

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 11 2017 15:44
thats the crux of it. and since the relics/stratagems/warlords traits call out BA by keyword they dont have access.
seems like an oversight to me

I mean, I didn't WIN ... but I wasn't recycled like so much tin cans

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Dec 11 2017 16:06
warlord trait is a straight reduce damage by 1 to a minimum of 1 ... taken on a CCB makes them a bit more durable versus 2-3 damage weapons that bypass the QS
the relic is the teleporting stick ... end of any movement phase take character +1 friend to somewhere else ... and I KEEEP forgetting to use it .. hence I lost the WL twice lol
stratagem is 2CP to give a Canoptek unit RP for a turn .... hello bunch a wraiths coming back from the dead
or 2 CP to give RP re-roll 1's ... (need to spend before rolling tho, so pretty weak)
had 4/6 wraiths pop back onto the table yesterday ... that gave my 'friend' a bit of a sweat-on

while we anxiously wait the codex that will be the saviour of my cohorts around the globe, it is a handy little taster, just gives a bit of an edge .. considering chapter approved didn't address any of the massively over costed units/weapons (looking at you C'tan) ... it was a welcome bit of extra needed oomph

saw a post around asking about a situation we considered, if he had used Auspex scan when they arrived from interception, could he have shot first ? and negated them even more.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Dec 11 2017 16:21
i think the auspex happens as soon as the unit arrives (ie. end of your movement phase)
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Dec 11 2017 16:22
i mean, on his turn ... he deepstrikes terminators ... Deathmarks use ethereal interception .. and would shoot in his phase ... but then he in turn spends 2CP for auspex scan to shoot something that just DSed in ... it's a conundrum, but one we avoided as he didn't want to waste CP
I'm off to battle a more mundane threat, the weather and traffic... catch you all again soon .. ttfn

#admin hat on
ok @/all a little reminder here:
Let #1989 be an example of a thread where (brutally summarizing) an outsider had a suggestion that was met with hostility mostly because of past record of his. (mind you, hostility; whether suggestion was useful or to be accepted is a separate issue) He may have crossed the line, more than once even; but that definitely doesn't allow us to do the same.


That is not how our Membership Guidelines guide us to do. We are bound by them the same as everyone from the outside or even stricter. Sometimes there are very negative comments on some issues. Please remember that although not much people look here, this chat room is public.

I do understand that what I ask of is sometimes very hard and we're all human (at least on the outside, we all have our inner aliens or daemons or other races inside); so mistakes are part of our behavior. Please, just minimize them as we all try to.

CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe is suddenly really glad he didn't comment on #1989

Are you seeing keywords still show in the necrons cat
as well as categories?
I could've sworn I took those out directly in xml but I don't have access to my cat files atm.
Also, I maintain that the necron strategems are hot shit. The Trait and relic however are very nice.
I've always been a fan of the veil. Repositioning aside, it's a fan-freaking tastic way to escape from a dangerous combat
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 11 2017 19:59
@GenWilhelm yes, the CA missions are much much better at actually encouraging objective based play, because of the usual limited windows to achieve them.
yesterday's tournament was played using them, and went pretty well, including the only other eldar player overflowing with salt because his spiritseer/serpent/dark reaper/yvraine list couldn't win by gunlining
was 1500pts on 4x4s
meanwhile my mechdar placed 2nd due to mobility to play the objective even if I was taking nasty losses
(the sportsmanship/paint scores helped a bit too, even though I was only ~4 colors on infantry the tanks were done)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 11 2017 20:31
@amis92 the point is well recieved, but as someone without too much skin in the game, there also needs to be some action to deal with people that come in with that level of hostility, BCB and the other guy we had recently being examples

If we know that at least an admin has our backs and will remove people like that, it becomes much easier to just ignore and let them set themselves up to get hammered
rather than feeling the need to engage with it
that's all I really had to put in, so my 0.02c aside:
for those curious about local meta results: that 1500pt tourney standings with sportsmanship but no paint score, in order: Tyranids, Craftworlds, Guard, Guard, Ynnari, Ultramarines, Sisters, Necrons, Tau, Guard
(amusingly, the ynnari guy was 3rd without sports score, but was such an ass that he dropped from 3rd to 5th)

BA are so scary I'm re-doing my list to have deep strike/Valk-delivered assault elements
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Dec 11 2017 20:42
it seems the main problem was all the early codexes and strong index armies were gunline, but now that 4th-ed style assaults are back, the ability to get stuck in without getting shot too much really causes issues

WindstormSCR

eldar will still be strong, because of lots of access to FLY, but the strongest units in the codex don't have it or can't absorb an assault well enough (Reapers, Shining Spears)

Welp, I've used up my amount of caring/attempts to be useful this week: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/746367.page#9739571
I don't get the hate
when we have more than four ways to help fix problems that don't involve touching the editor
@amis92 it doesn't ping properly if you change the ping in a post edit. @CrusherJoe

@OftKilted, as long as they are polite and cogent, you can can put them wherever you like :)

@OftKilted ... I can think of a few places... :wink:
also, @WindstormSCR I'm just plodding through the Ynnari CAT now
I buttered up the C&P fairy so we'll see how that goes

Well... there’s this nice circular basket over here. There’s a bunch of stuff in it ... I’ll file these on top of that ... it’s probably the “in basket” ;)
It was funny actually... I was down at the shop on Saturday. And one of the Gamers was having issues with their repo... turns out they were using the Mobile 40k repo that was 86’d. Had to help point them at the normal one

@OftKilted I'd remove it entirely but apparently the BSdata platform would implode if I did that, so I just left it with a bare minimum required for BSdata to not implode and a nice friendly allcaps that it's dead so my inbox stops getting a billion bug reports

Yeah. Apparently the user wasn’t reading the notices on the repo in their app. It’s not a huge deal.
But it was amusing they were going on about “yeah battlescribe got C&D by geedub so they aren’t updating it anymore ...” it was amusing after a day spent painting and watching the Tau both get their tails kicked and do some kicking back ...
@WindstormSCR But the “this repo has been depreciated as of X date” was really helpful.

I didn't actually put that in, unless you're referring to one of the release titles or the reddit post
@OftKilted I have no idea how I could make it any clearer that it's just the mobile files that are dead. That is amusing though

It looks like the release title. It showed up when looking at the repo label when doing a data manage on the mobile device. Something like Mobile V6.6.6 “DEVELOPMENT CEASED”

Dec 11 2017 22:22
yep
I sent off a PM to @Jonskichov to see if he can fully remove the repo without things going haywire, maybe
for clarity, I meant the 40k mobile files repo

urgh, copy and paste is such a ball ache
time for bed, I'll carry on with the Ynnari update ... somewhen else ... but the points should be straight now :smile:
interestingly enough, I updated the points for everything, so presently if you play Ynnari your Drukhari, Harlequin and Corsair units will benefit from Craftworld points for any common weapons
@WindstormSCR if you fancy casting your eyes over what I've done so far, go wild... of course it is a bit of a mess because I basically need to run through the entire Codex update in the Ynnari file all over again - it would be much easier if I'd done it at the same time as the original update... But, these things happen, it'll get done and not too many people are crying about it so I try not to get too worried :smile:

if I find the time I'll give harlequins, drukhari and corsairs a look over so that just the CWE stuff is left
