PostSubject: FAQ- It is not what we think   Fri May 20, 2016 8:33 am

Ok, I am putting this in general because it is not a "Rumor"

the 40K FAQ all dark eldar know and hate is what is called a "working FAQ"

meaning that as of now, in all ways, the FAQ is valid.
The words "First Draft" GW regrets using because it makes people think it is a "test" FAQ. it is not, it is a VALID and OFFICIAL FAQ. as of now, Jink causes passengers to snap shoot.

Wait for an official announcement very soon. Like, maybe later today or tomorrow.


They MAY (and I stress the word may) make changes based on gamer input, but that will be in future editions of the FAQ.

So, we all thought this was a test run. it was not. It is an official FAQ to be used immediately.

Sucks to be us.

Super friends got a bigger kick in the balls, so I'm okay with that.

Where are you getting that from?

They specicially said in the beginning that it was a draft put up to get our feedback.

Specifically, they said:

Quote :
Our rules guys have the first of the Warhammer 40,000 FAQ drafts for you guys to feed back on.
We got so many questions for this game, that we’re going to be asking for feedback on the answers one book at a time. We’re starting with the big one: the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.

Do the answers all make sense? Are they clear?
(We’re looking for whether you understand them rather than if you like the answer.)

Here’s what you need to do

- Read through this draft FAQ

- If you think any answers need clarification, post up a comment on the relevant image

- Make sure your question is concisely written, and in plain English

We’ll leave these up for a week, then we’ll pass on your comments to the rules guys for the final FAQs.

So these drafts ARE drafts, from their own words, and WILL be changed for a final version.

I got this information from a national tournament organizer in direct contact with them on this very issue. Expect no changes for quite a while, and we are supposed to use these as-is.

Also, they have been up for quite a while longer than a week. released on the 4th?

So soon they'll make them official? I'm okay with that.

Yeah, the sooner that space marine players will no longer be able to argue that they can shoehorn 2 additional Venerable Dreadnoughts into a Firespear Strike Force (and get away with it), the better.

These FAQs are a train-wreck. I hope your contact was wrong.

In the next batch of FAQs they specifically mentioned they want comments about is it clear FAQ or not, and they dont expect comments like do you like it or not.

So all this Facebook feedback was for form of FAQ, rather then substance.

I wouldn't consider it official until it is on the GW website under the FAQ section. Until then, I will not abide by their rulings. LOL ;O)

Until it becomes official, it was still presented as a draft.

I'm not sure what a post like this is meant to accomplish. Am I supposed to feel bad or something? I already know that Dark Eldar are not 'competitive' and frankly I don't really care, as the game has become so convoluted as to make tournaments and competitive play sort of silly. But that's a topic for a different discussion.

I don't know how many times I've heard people say they've heard so and so from a guy...unless you are personal friends with someone who works for the design studio in Nottingham, I'm taking it with plenty of salt. It's a draft FAQ. It needs revision. Let's hope that's the case.

It doesnt matter, its not official, till GW says it is all this "I know a guy" is just he said she said crap.

The FAQ's are drafts, they might be drafts for a year, they might give us a updated Faq draft in 2 months, we will know soon enough.

Just to add, a new batch went up today, and they very clearly say on the top of each image "First Draft". Thats fairly cut and clear.

I understand everyone's response. Time will either prove me right or wrong.

I know that for ATC, GW's response was "it is official as of now" and that's what they are running with.

Do you know who from GW responded? Quite often, people from GW answer emails sent in to their "general questions" email, and are later shown to be wrong.

We arnt saying you are right or wrong, its what is official and what isnt. Currently they are Drafts and not official changes.

No offense to you, but until GW says it, its just rumors.

I think they will release everything at once when every Faction is done.

I suspect we'll see the final version of the BRB FAQ shortly and then weekly releases of the draft versions of the codex FAQ's, as we've been seeing for the last couple of weeks. Will be interesting to see if they do anything nasty to the big boys (SM, Eldar etc) to tone them down a bit.

Hey there, brand new player here and was wondering a few questions about the new FAQ. From the look of things Fire Dragons cannot take a raider transport any longer but I was wondering if I was able to still grab a haemy to deep strike some foot slogger Fire Dragons. I thought this was the case, but someone in the group i'm at seemed to think otherwise( something along the lines of the Web Way Portal is considered a transport?) I double checked the rulebook and it didn't seem the case, but was wondering if there was something I missed?

Yep. If you take a DE HQ unit with a WWP, they can join a unit at deployment and tey can Deep Strike. The FAQ ruling on transports doesn't stop you Deep Striking with a foot slogging unit.

In other news, what do you think the chances of being answered are if I were to actually ask the GW FB guys about the full releases.....

Might give it a go........

Those Fire Dragons can still get in a Raider, they just can't start the game in one.

And that guy responded with something that was coherent and makes sense. Wow, they should put that guy on the FAQ team. That's like superviser material, right there. Very Happy
