Maybe it's just me, but it seems that we are wittiness to an increase of Eldar output from the Heamonculus vats.

(More gamers joining us. Due to 8th edition?)

We've had nearly 100 new users this month, which is far and away the highest number we've had in a month for at least the last year (our stats don't go back further than that).

Welcome one and all. Hopefully a sign of the resurgence of the True Kin!

Also some of us are coming back after a hiatus, due to the state of 7th edition DE and optimism about the new edition.

So. .... One could say that all the doom sayers preaching everywhere that everyone hates 8th edition and wants 7th back is either lying or misinformed?

Ive definitely come back to play 8th and joined recently. Although way too soon to tell on feelings on the new edition, but good so far! And enjoying the hobby side of it all anyway

Same, though I've been silently browsing this forum for just over 2 years, my hype for 8th edition has prompted me to actually engage for once Razz

Half the dark eldar range has been sold out in the Canadian webstore for a long time now. You can bet there is a lot more. I wanted to order some stuff and I can't. This happens all the time with more popular factions, but this is the first time I've ever seen it for the DE and it's way bigger than when it happened for anyone else.

I've had an account here for a while but started using it again recently to see what people were thinking. Looks like 8th has rekindled a lot of people's passions for the game. Especially considering our spikey jerks are arguably closer to the top of the pile than they've ever been before.

After more than a decade without touching anything 40k, 8th has sparked my interest in it again and I just coudln't resist fielding the beautiful models of DE/Ynnari.

I have to admit that i appear to have got my initial opinion of 8th edition wrong. In 7th, if I rocked up to a fight with a lot of Harlequin Troupes + Dark Eldar Jetbikes against a list boasting 2 superheavy Kytans, Abaddon, a predator and 2 Maulerfiends, then I am pretty sure I would have just continued to die in droves as attack after attack wiffed.

8th has been a fantastic re-balancing act. Infantry always have a chance. Darklight does SIGNIFICANT damage, finally! The psychic phase is brief and harder to abuse. All of the game elements flow faster. Impressive!

Nice to hear that this place is getting more visitors.

Whatever I might think of the current edition of 40k, this forum has always been a great place.

There's always an increase of posts whenever new material is released, there's just so much stuff to digest all at once that the increase in posting has been stable for the last couple of weeks and doesn't show signs of stopping with our new influx of members. Normally the increase lasts for a week or two, but personally from why I've witnessed, it's been a week of shock and leaks. A week of nay saying and denial. Acceptance and memorization and now we're in the actual discussion and experimentation part.

In terms of the new members, wow! 100 is a lot! And it's always good to see new blood in the forums. Feels good man to drop some knowledge.

I joined up at the end of 7th, mainly because I liked our spikey friends from back in second edition. Very glad I chose now that we seem to be balanced.

A new edition always does this. We have new rules and new ideas to play around with, people want to bounce their ideas off of others.

I will also say that new editions brings back old players. I for one did try and play during 7th, but it was horrible. Finally diving fully back in due to 8th. Whether that is a good thing or bad thing, we will see Very Happy

I for one welcome this influx of Eladrith Ynneas to our new forums. More eyes and more voices means more things will be found and more things to be discussed.

Let the party never stop (genuinely fun discussion of the game and all things Eladrith Ynneas), and may our hosts (the mods) never die (run into major IRL problems)!

Incidentally, Privateer Press saw an 800% increase in sales during the same time period.

Take that as you will.
