@CptMetal the only person injecting politics here is you.

Anyway, I bought the Eldar triumvirate today. I'm going to paint them as Harlequins for my vanity army, which means I need to work some Harlequin masks into their models somehow. Also they will all get goblin green bases. Being able to take a Harlequins CAD means I might actually get a chance to use them once or twice.

@TeenageAngst If you say so.

@BetrayTheWorld definately not immigration but I wanted to visit it. Visiting some relatives of my wife and forming my own picture of the average us citizen instead of relying on internet based communication. Of course keeping away from dangerous schooting areas like ghettos, Detroit or schools Wink
But I definetely can´t bring my army with me to game. My wife would kill me XD

Sorry to hear you are not having a good time teenageangst. We all have periods in our life where things just are just not going well and it can sadly bleed in to our hobby. I am glad you have posted here so you can get those feelings out where we at least understand the reason why. I took a break after 5th edition and came back at the start of 7th. Had a total of two matches of 7th and the difference between the start and now is like, woah o.0. formations, detachments, insane special rules, your model can do WHAT NOW!? xD I posted my second match of 7th on here and in that match i got creamed. I played badly and my list was...not that great. but I had fun and i learned and i discussed on here what I could do to improve my list and my strategy. But I will still experiment. after I finally get my 3rd match, i'm gonna try reaver jetbikes with cluster caltrops. It may go very well or very badly as i am not quite sure how to use them properly ^^

Hope this helps and when it doubt, make a fun list that makes people go "...what the deuce? o.o" xD

If it's simply hobby burn out, taking a break can help considerably. I took 4 months off this past summer where I didn't play any 40K at all. I didn't build, paint, or play with a single model. Instead, I focused on other games and got back into some other hobby aspects in my life. By the end of the 4 months I was in love with 40K again. I'm here because I after 4 years of Tyranids, and even the 4-month break, I was simply bored with codex: flyrants. The switch to an entirely new faction has really helped me regain my excitement for the game.

I don't think it's hobby burn out so much as it's just burn out on life in general. I sign a new lease tomorrow so I'm stressed about moving, I'm having relationship problems, my job is... another situation, and all this is affecting my ability to enjoy things in general and 40k in specific.

Additionally, I've noticed I have a long and sordid history of setting myself up for disappointment with my own hobbies unintentionally. In vanilla WoW I played the bad Druid specs because I thought they were fun and earned much ire from my guildmates. In Overwatch I'm a Widow main because she's my favorite character, and it was only after some time that I learned she's hot garbage. In 40k it's Dark Eldar. All of these choices were made before understanding what the meta of each game was, and it was only after understanding the relation of my choice to the rest of the game as a whole that I realized my options were to either learn to enjoy being bad or to learn to enjoy something else in the game. I liked WoW a lot more before I learned what "raid specs" were. I liked Overwatch a lot more before people started complaining about my character choice. I liked 40k more when I just enjoyed building and painting dudes and coming up with stories for them rather than actually playing the game lol. Dark Eldar are a lot more fun in concept than in execution.

Maybe I'll just go back to my old hobby of writing elf smut, that's something people seem to enjoy and there's no real competition.

I can empathize. I started playing WoW in BC and thought that Subtlety Rogue was the bee's knees. It wasn't until after hitting 70, fighting tooth and nail to get into raids, gearing up, hacking through endgame content, and then finally rolling another character that I realized, "Oh, hey, this isn't NEARLY as hard on a different toon/spec. Geez, this doesn't have to be like pulling teeth at all!"

I was stubborn and bullheaded enough to get into a BWL raiding guild as a Moonkin druid in 1.12. When BC dropped I was THE best feral tank on the server and worked my way into Black Temple with 2 sets of T6 gear before finally quitting the guild and the game for a while due to internal politics. Sadly, much like 40k, ya can't go back to the way it was.

[Intrigue intensifies] Is this just speculation or... I want it to be true, or rather, I want us to have a codex that doesn't feel overall less competitive than Craftworlds. I firmly believe that the goals for balance in this game should be that whatever disadvantages a player incurs for taking one army over another he is equally compensated with advantages. Admittedly, the more dissimilar 2 armies are the harder it will be to keep things balanced. But when one factions Jetbikes can take weapon upgrades on every bike, and another is limited to a 1:3 ratio, the former are mainline troops, and the latter are specialists who should have good access to weaponry to compensate for their loss of ObSec - you got to wonder how hard GW is trying! Rolling Eyes

Then again I'm starting to get progressively more invested in my New 8th edition of 40k fanbook, and the accompanying "8th" edition Dark Eldar fandex... oh well!

It is speculation, though I have heard rumors. I expect that DE will be one of the first 3 codices after 8th Edition drops, and I expect 8th out this spring. There are some discrepancies in recent books that makes it seem like they're attempting to future-proof current releases for an impending rulebook release, which makes me think we're very close to seeing 8th Edition.

I am of the opinion that polling the community on rules for the FAQs was at least partly a ruse to give them some ideas and direction on what sorts of changes they should make for 8th edition, and I expect that development/discussion of the 8th edition rulebook started around that time.

The competitive chat knew this as soon as they saw the questions, there was no other reason for it. Probably is correct, and I do hope our new codex is OP as hell. Game balance this, game balance that, it will never be balanced, so if we're gonna have imbalance, better the army I play be top of the heap than not. Hell, I'll just settle for Tau becoming the new bottom tier.

No /tg/ is never right about any predictions. It is this big stupid group chat of like 100 players who make up a bunch of 40k teams. Somehow this group ends up with psychic knowledge of 40k changes and releases before they happen. I use them as my barometer for how the game is changing.

Yes, I've heard you refer to it before. Where is this group chat based? Is it on a web site, in a yahoo group, or what? How did you get in it, and how would someone go about joining it?

It's on facebook and invite only. Basically you have to be friends with someone in it and then they add you and then you see a never ending cascade of terrible mom jokes, drunken buffoonery, and occasionally 40k related insight.

The vetting process is extreme to say the least, but if you're not into spamming trash doves and rare pepes at 4am or listening to endless talk about banging hookers at the LVO then you're probably not gonna enjoy it anyway. The 40k knowledge they dispense is invaluable but the tax is paid in your sanity.
