Okay, I'll bite: What have they changed, I mean, actually changed? What is different between the CRP and BB2016 that is ruining it for you? This is not a chance to complain about optional rules that have been added and can be ignored as you wish, I want an actual list of changes made to the core rules.
And what indicates a slash and burn approach to the game?
I agree with this question what has changed, what actually matters?
1. Pile on moved to optional and costs a Reroll - I get that some people loved it but it doesn't seem missed in our BB16 league with a lot of old school coaches. Obviously the Claw-PO-MB builds are nerfed but does that matter.
2. Expensive mistakes in place of spiraling expenses - again doesn't seem to be a problem in our league. Spiraling expenses doesn't seem to be 'missed' by long term coaches.
3. Human catchers cheaper - seems not to be any complaints.
4. Argue the call is back - most everyone seems to be love this.
5. Complicated End of Season rules - seems to be a bit of a pain in the neck but not really an issue for non league play. So far hasn't been an issue for league play locally.
6. Timmm-ber added for Halfling treemen - again seems well received universally
7. MVP is now to one of three assigned players. Seems well received no more dead lineman getting the MVP
8. Weeping Dagger added to gutter runners - universally thought to be a mistake but also one universally though to come up fairly rarely.
9. No wizards - beats me how folks feel about this change. Wouldn't surprise me if they made a return in deathzone 2 or dungeonbowl
10. Various positional name changes - who cares? Call them the old names if you like.
11. 21 teams instead of 24 NAF teams - clearly an issue but some of those teams (Slann) haven't fit GW's miniature line and fluff for decades (I played 3rd ed WFB and 2nd ed BB when a slann team made more sense.)
@Sundevil I had the same feel listening to your recent episodes. In my opinion it felt like you weren't giving new BB a fair shake. Just a listener who otherwise very much enjoys your show.
