  • To me, the people who say 40k is "too luck based" are the same people who find the cheesiest way to fight a boss then complain when it gets patched, not because the boss is unfair but because they're just too lazy to put in the work

  • It is most definately a game of luck. You tell me it's not about luck... I say you gotta make 16 4+'s and you make 14 of them at a .001526% chance... and I tell you, this game is about luck.

  • Well compared to Corvus Belli's Infinity, Malifaux or Warhammer Underworlds, W40k has a stupid amount of luck involved and a much lower skill cap. After all W40k is a wargame not a skirmisher game and is meant to be played as a roleplaying game rather than competitively because once you start playing competitively it becomes like modern magic the gathering instead of commander which is not fun.

  • I think its incorrect to say that luck doesn't matter and at all in 40k. I'd relate it more to professional poker: yeah, luck can be really nice and make the game easier for you, but at the end of the day you win more with skill than with luck.

    Andy YangAndy YangPrieš 2 mėnesius
  • Totally agree that probability and strategy are waaaaaay more important than luck in this game. In my experience, nerds arguing about measurements and line of sight is also a major component though... ;-)

  • Uhhh but no one is pulling out white boards during their games. I love the spectacle of the game but if you roll all ones then you wont feel like its a fair "competitive" game. Yes if you roll a thousand dice in a game it will balance out to average bit in that case why not just remove dice entirely because whats the difference. I prefer more big brain games like stratego but always love watching a 40k batrep because it looks cool. It's a aesthetic random battle sim with light influence on the outcome.

  • The only game that is played professionally that I can think of that has no luck involved in its system is CS:GO and even then I don't think the lack of randomness makes it more competitive than other FPS, just a different breed

  • As an avid wargamer that plays tons of games. I agree blaming luck only is nonsense. I think the bigger issue is that Warhammer feels pretty close to pay to win. And the cost to keep up with the meta to play at a high level. Too much of the game (for my tastes is decided at list building). More modern rulesets allow for your in game tactical decisions to make a much larger difference in game. (Ie Guild Ball, Malifaux, Infinity). The other main thing. Is the ruleset is pretty antiquated. The whole activate all your stuff, then the opponent activates all their stuff needs to go. Having played a TON of wargames. In 2020 there is no reason not to have alternating activations. Makes a much more tactical game (feinting, managing activation order/control, etc...)

  • Also, hammering a unit with 8 strength 10 hits and rolling all 1's with no re-rolls can play on your mind for the rest of the game leading to dumb moves.

    Stephen Magi-SorgeStephen Magi-SorgePrieš 3 mėnesius
  • The other big thing in the game is "How in the hell did I miss that???" Having a wonderful plan, being distracted by the 120 orks and forgetting if you threw a bouncy bright ball they would chase it. Consequently your plan has gone kaka because you let yourself be distracted.

    Stephen Magi-SorgeStephen Magi-SorgePrieš 3 mėnesius
  • For the exocrine you forgot to add the exploding 6's to the rerolling ones. It is 7/6 average hits per shot not 10/9. Without rerolls, 1,2 miss 3,4 hit and 5 6 hit twice, giving us an average of 1 hit per shot. adding in rerolls 1/6 of the time we turn a miss into another shot which has and average number of hits of 1, so 1 + 1/6 * 1 is 7/6

  • Yes, my Plague Marines ARE very durable, and yes, I have a bunch of saves to mitigate damage, but not getting hit is better than being tanky. Relying on the dice to win you the match is a last resort sort of thing, proper movement, deployment, and powers/stratagems used at the right time is what makes all the difference.

Drafting doesnt really exist either since you cant change your list for different opponents during an event, ending in everybody playing the same cookie-cutter meta lists till there is a change to the game.
