I can surely see why everyone is a bit frustrated with things like this, but in the end it doesn't really bother me because I feel confident that the player community will self-correct any problems that arise. I mean, the community pretty much ran the game for decades and some of our members are responsible for many improvements made to the rules during that time.

I'm just enjoying that the game is getting more attention, as well as new stuff to buy.


The worrying thing is if the designers are doing things like creating underpriced non-Loner star players with new untested skills on purpose, what other ill-conceived ideas are going to show up in the rules via DeathZone expansions?

Yesm the playing community can house rule against them, but a fractured rule-set with house rules aplenty is not great for the game.

I think there is also the fact that GW has never really promoted competitive play. In my opinion competitive play is what has kept BB alive. Not so much the "competitive" side of things but the fact the tournaments provide a great place for BB players to get together etc. It is one of the things I love about the BB community.

So you have a company that historically cares nought for tournament play so makes decisions based on that. As a result, unbalanced, untested and crazy amounts of new rules in new locations spring up. Give it 6 months...NAF will take control again, and so will the community.

Someone at the Open Day (J_Bone?) tweeted that Andy said the missing Loner was a typo.
(And he also said the same on FB, but I no longer have access to the link.)

I flagged the issue with Andy Hoare, and was given a fairly terse reply:
Quote:
The rules for Grak and Crumbleberry are published as James intended them - they don't contain any typos and we're not going to publish an errata.

So Andy was telling porkie pies to someone (or doesn't have a clue). :roll:

Andy never said that it was a typo, he said he'd look into it. It has been looked into.

He said it was a typo on Facebook, in reply to one of my posts.

G&C are just one of the biggest fubars in an intensely unprofessional product so yeah, you WILL get crossthreading through the most common denominator. ...
