Hey /tg/
I've been getting pissed of lately at the fucking shit GW is coming out with! Before I go into a massive fucking rant about this shit company, let me give you a little background so you can see my little problem!
The first time I started playing 40k was when I was a young girl. Everyone seemed nice to me (I know why now) and the fluff was pretty fucking sweet! I was made to choose SM's off the bat though but went on to choose Tau later because devil fish bunkers (cheese I know, but it fucking worked so I fucking did it!).
Right, now I have to bring up that I haven't played 40k in a while, to busy at University and what not, had fun blah blah blah. Now, I come back years later since I'm getting struck by the old Nostalgia, thought I'd get afew new models, paint em and get going.
Or so I thought, seems the fucking prices have shot up so I ended up just settling with buying a codex, was going to go for Tau but though lets have a change, hmm Gray Knight, why the fuck not. So I buy it and take it home.
Looking through it for a while I literally just shout, "What the fuck is this shit?!" It reads like a fucking fan fiction not a codex, so i go out and get a PDF for the fucking Necrons now, fucking broken as shit! How can you even ship this shit! Not only that but there has been no 'setting' progression at all! And everyone seems to take it! They say X-COM is being ret-conned into an FPS and people flip their shit, you say they're ret-conning 40k and people leap to GW's defnce saying, "Oh, it's like a new fucking game, derp herp derp." Fuck that!
Looking back without the nostalgia goggles to be honest it's always been like this, but for fucks sake! I used to love 40k! What happened to it! Why has it become so shit! I feel like finding out where Matt Ward lives and stabbing him in the face with my model file! Fuck!
Usually I don't post such bullshit threads on, well anywhere, I just lurk but GOD DAMN! PLEASE TELL ME SOME OF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY! FUUUUCK!!

i agree the price of the models is fucking ridiculous. considering all it cost GW to do is to cast the fuckign models in plastic and ship them because you do the assembly and painting, they shouldnt cost this fucking much. if the stuff was cheper tehy could sell more- more pruduct sold to poorfags= more profit. seriously its liek there TRYING to get people to hate 40k

You're complaining about these huge changes, yet you say it's always been like this. Two lines later you ask what happened to it. In all seriousness just gtfo.

>>but there has been no 'setting' progression at all!
YOU DON"T FUCKING PROGRESS SETTINGS!!!
YOU FUCKING PROGRESS PLOTS AND THAT HAS BEEN FUCKING CONSTANTLY HAPPENING!
THE SETTING HAS NOT, WILL NOT AND NEVER WILL PROGRESS PAST '15 MINUTES TILL MIDNIGHT' AS THE AVERAGE 1000-2000 POINT GAME IS A FIFTEEN MINUTE LONG FIGHT STORY WISE!
GW IS TELLING YOU, IN NO FUCKING UNCERTAIN TERMS, TO MAKE THE FUTURE WHAT YOU WILL WITH YOUR FUCKING GAMES!
WHY IS THIS FUCKING CONCEPT SO FUCKING HARD TO UNDERSTAND? I GRASPED THE INTRICACIES OF THIS CONCEPT WHEN I WAS TWELVE!

JUST SHUT UP! SHUT UP ALL YOU FUCKING MANCHILD-BASEMENT DWELLERS AND THINK UP AN ORIGINAL COMPLAINT ABOUT THE SYSTEM AND THE COMPANY THAT AT LEAST HOLDS MORE FUCKING WATER THEN A DIABETES VICTIM AND ISN'T TORN APART BY A CHILD THINKING EVEN VAGUELY LATERALLY FOR A SECOND.

>> No.14481380

>>14481352

Yeah, GW can add new stuff into the existing setting via retcons.

This is how we got:
-Damocles Gulf Crusade happening in 988.M41 instead of 741.M41 as it formerly did (codex: IG)
-Grey Knights have a supreme grand master who kicked Mortarion's ass and put the name of his homeboy inside his ribcage, yo
-The dude in the bridge of the Vengeful Spirit was a Custodes instead of an Imperial Fist terminator
-Space Wolves ride giant wolves
-C'tan turned out to be behind the entire 40k universe

This is the stuff Anon actually prefers to plot progression.

What this man said

>> No.14481450

>>14481380
A retcon is an edit of previously established plot.
To count as a retcon the fluff needs to specifically be different before hand. C'tan and Necrons were not a retcon as there was previously no established 'creation' story.
Same shit with grey knights, very little is a retcon as fuck all was written about it to start with.

And there is STILL much of the setting that has not been dealt with or written about at this point in time.

>> No.14481798

>>14481450

Mortarion leaving his daemonworldto get his ass kicked contradicts Typhus' fluff, as his skulking is the reason for why Typhus is so active.

The C'tan are the biggest pile of shit ever to exist in 40k. Tell me, why should anyone prefer this fermenting pool of bile to actual plot progression?

>> No.14481948

>>14481798
Ok, 1) that is an opinion and to have so many think you are wrong tends to suggest that your opinion, objectively, is wrong.
2) THAT WAS FUCKING PLOT PROGRESSION YOU UTTER FUCKWIT!

>> No.14481978

I don't get the: "The fluff sucks so the hobby sucks" thing. You can collect, build, paint and play an army without even touching the fluff, it has zero impact on the rest of the hobby. It's really just extra flavour, the sauce on the hotdog that is tabletop gaming. there is reason why it's called fluff and not necessary prose or whatever.

If you hate the fluff, fine, hate it, but hating the game because the fluff is bad just doesn't make sense, unless the fluff starts to bleed into the game in the from of rules, like having a rule that all Imperial Armies need to be lead by a space monkey, but GW seems to be doing a good job of keeping the fluff and rules separate from what I've seen.

>> No.14482120

I'm not sure if you're telling the truth about your background OP, but I'll take your word for it.

Yes, Games Workshop has shifted priorities from being a hobby centered around hobbyists and having fun to a company centered around making money. They've got a board of executives and shareholders that most likely do not give a drop about you, me, or anyone elses enjoyment. They just want to see big wads of cash roll in.

I visited a local Games Workshop store here in Helsinki Finland and asked to read the new Grey Knight codex, having a standard "aggressive" store clerk try and hype it up as being the best thing ever. Even I could hear the disbelief in his voice, and was given a miraculous change in opinion once I told him he doesn't need to act for me, just be honest. He doesn't like it. At all. Not nescessarily hates it, since it makes his Daemonhunters viable again, but he dislikes everything that isn't part of the rules section.

Necrons are viable to play, even though they are in some parts broken compared to the newer codexes. They're just... much, much more harder to play than before.

>> No.14482158

>>14481978
See, half the problem is people getting the two confused.

"Fuck you, you space puppy faggot. My Avatar is a GOD OF WAR, YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO POWER FIST IT TO DEATH"

"This handful of fives and sixes says otherwise"

I, for one, don't go about telling people what I do in my spare time purely because a solid third of them are arse-talking dribble cunts like OP.

Troll.
>young girl
You wish
>choose SM
>choose Tau later
Oh, your not just of the gender /tg/ hates the most, but you played the two armies they hate even more?
>Now, I come back years later
If you're such a veteran gamer, how come you started out with tau? You wouldn't be long enough in the game to be a raging neckbeard about the actual changes, rageworthy as they may be, and you wouldn't be THAT nostalgic if your time with 40K would have been that brief
>hmm Gray Knight
Oh, the popular fake-retarded-typo, a classic for trolls
>It reads like a fucking fan fiction not a codex
I get it, you're a girl who knows shit about 40K and played just for a short time during third or fourth edition, yet in an intance you realised that Mat Ward killed 40K. Cute.
>no 'setting' progression
You're not really good at making this sound like you just realized it.
What the fuck is the matter with people like you? Why do you feel the need to make up those bullshit stories? As a troll this couldn't really work, but it won't make people agree with your point either. Just say what you want to say and be done with it.
