  1. So your suggestion is to look for another faction/ crew that does what your old favorite did in another faction? If it exists in another faction then what the hell was the point of all the changes? You are correct in stating that it should be looked at as a new game. It is a very different game than either of the previous editions and in some aspects nearly unrecognizable. Some may view it as an improvement, others will see it as quite the opposite. There is nothing wrong with that. I am glad that some are really enjoying the changes.
  2. We can always hope, however, I think that has appeared on the fate decks for a very long time.
  3. There is an official announcement from Kyle here that Wyrd will not be attending Origins this year.
  4. One of the design goals of the new edition was to limit shelf sitters not create new ones.
  5. The current version suffers from "Menoth Syndrome" (an ailment whose symptoms include requiring multiple buffs to get sub par models to function at a level equivalent to most other models) and is way to fragile on those vital support pieces. Yes when everything functions perfectly it can be potent, but once your opponent takes out a key piece the whole house of cards collapses and very quickly. The last play test version was a band aid response to staunch the damage that was done by the broadsword approach of his redesign. I really wish Wyrd would stop reinventing the wheel every time they release a new edition. I no loner recognize the game I bought into (heavily) and worked avidly to promote (in many different areas) so many years ago. So I guess the play test mantra of "look at it as a new game" was met (at least in the case of Somer). I guess we will see how the communities receive the new game in an environment where Games Workshop is aggressively competing for the skirmish market.
  6. Not sure if it helps, but Wyrd has mentioned previously that there is a plan for obtaining new models included only in crew boxes in another way for those of us who have already bought in (many of us heavily). Don't recall them releasing any further details but it will be great if it does happen and doesn't require anything other than purchasing from their online store front.
  7. We should remember that posting feedback on the forums wasn't the only method of submitting suggestions/recommendations during the open play test. Some feel as if the forums have a tendency to focus on a few vocal play testers that may appear to bully those who disagree with them. Having participated in more than a few of these for Wyrd, I can say that this one was quite a bit tamer than those in the past but was not exactly free of issues. In the end, everyone will have to evaluate the final game for themselves and decide to stay or go. Losing players is never a good thing but is also somewhat inevitable. The trick is to minimize loss. Rebuilding communities is a difficult thing, more so when a large swath of potential players possess a very bad taste that poisons the well. I for one am not looking forward to rebuilding should my community not take to M3e. We had just recovered from the M2e transition.
  8. I would like to see the Bayou Gremlin's Minion Number increased.
  9. I will check the stock at my LGS next time I go. I seem to recall them having at least one.
  10. While some aspects of the new version of Somer may accomplish your intent of encouraging a Horde Style of play, Lookin' Down On 'Em may actually have the opposite effect. This singular ability coupled with Bayou Bash is likely going to be much more effective in an Elite crew where you aren't providing pass tokens than a horde of weenies where you will. Also, that card is getting mighty full of text.
  11. I wouldn't be surprised if Wyrd released a new Hanna for M3e that was closer to the KS one, there is some precedent for it. The M2e Lord Chompy Bits is a very close facsimile of the 1st Edition Nightmare Edition that at one point commanded a really hefty price on the secondary market. I absolutely hate the Relic Knights Hanna and would love to see a new version but do hope they dont infringe on the KS one in such an obvious way.
  12. I would also add: You have to use the replaced value so it is not like a where you can choose to use it or not. And it counts as your cheat for the duel. Somer's recent rise in competitive play is more likely due to the appearance of Bajonistas than an ability he has had from the very start of the edition. There is a reason 1st edition Somer had Survival of the Fittest erratad very early to prevent stacking with other models that had it. But at this point, I really dont care anymore. The devs will do what they think is best and the rest of us will have to make our own decisions about them.
  13. But you cant take it on any master you play, only a handful of Gremlin Models have it and only one Master. As you stated though You are arguing against players who know these models and have much more experience than you do. No point in discussing this further as you will not change my opinion and I am very unlikely to change yours. Ah the joys of open play testing...
  14. 8 is a value higher than the statistical average for Bayou Two Card. It is less than a 50-50 crap shoot that is more likely to drop lower than a tie or higher and you have to use the second result as it is your cheat. It really isn't that great. If it was Somer would have been placing much higher in organized competitive play events and much more consistently.
  15. This is definitely not true or statistically accurate. Its best use is in damage flips where you can get a second chance at higher damage, but even here you have to hit well enough to cheat at all, and with Gremlin stats that isn't guaranteed. Finally, as @ShinChan states, it is your models cheat so you have to use the new result even if it is lower. This is why Bayou Two Card isn't as great as it looks. It has a narrow range of benefit with a larger range of detriment. Suicide Gremlins. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After, years and years of playing Somer and his crew in both 1st and 2nd editions, I feel safe in stating that the only real balance he needed was with negating the interaction between Survival of the Fittest and Get Your Bro. I have never agreed with using Get Your Bro as a card draw mechanic. A single line addition to Get Your Bro could have stopped this.
