  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

Make different types for different terrain so you sell more and it looks better. There you go buddy, pay me latter, I just made you so much more money.

  • 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.

  • Even with all probability considered, at the end of the day its a game of dice and luck. The game is so poorly balanced that "competitive" is an absolute meme compared to other competitive games. 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.

  • Ohh... ohh goodness @MagikarpUsedFly you just kinda skipped some parts of the math and have told people an incorrect conclusion. Thankfully teaching them to do math is the important part but the Caress is a better weapon vs marines than the kiss. The caress averages 7.90 wounds and the kiss only averages 6.66. This happened because when you skipped doing the math for the last step of the kiss you went 66% of 4-5 is 3-4 but it is more accurately 2-3 which is why the kiss looked like it performed better.

  • Ohh side note, you forgot to multiply the 5+'s extra hits by 1/6 so the actual chance at that point is 116% damage instead of 111%. (This is added because the re-roll also has a channce to generate the extra hits)

  • Best advice I can ever give : do not go anywhere near warhammer, as an ex hobbist I can tell you that at this point GW don't care about the customers, they don't care about what balance is, they don't care about the fact you have 10+ years of models, they want you buying primaris marines. Which are £35 or $47 dollars. And in order to have a starter army, a barebones starter your looking at £215 or $286 dollars for your 2 HQ'S and 3 troops. People will tell you "oh but you don't need it cause fixed CP's" trust me to remain competitive and relevant you need that minimum, but if you want to have a half decent list to start your looking at about £500 or $664. So please stay away from GW. play any other miniatures game, don't give GW any of your money
