That's like C:SM. What did you expect. Did you really think you'd be the new Tau or Eldar?

At least C:SM's nerf list wasn't that huge. Most of the buffs were hidden nerfs/washes though.

Implying nothing of the sort. But a walking tyrant that had OA (which is gone too) and a shell to buff the ground walkers helped the army a lot.

Cruddace is the only fucker who NERFS shit. The only huge nerfs I remember are CSM going away from 3.5.

Seriously, why do you nerf armies that AREN'T EVEN AS GOOD AS THE CURRENT TOP ARMIES.

You make armies that are already not good, WORSE.

NO PRE-6TH BOOK SHOULD BE GETTING NERFS, PERIOD.

C:SM was never OP to begin with, especially not at the end of 5E. So what do you do? NERF NERF NERF.

Tyranids were good, which is amazing, but not nearly as good as Tau/Daemons/Eldar. So how do we bring them up to speed? NERF NERF NERF

REALLY?

Cruddace deserves to die. No shit. Either he should resign or he should die. That's my raging, autistic, nerdangry opinion. The fucker deserves to die for failing to realize his own incompetence. The patterns are there, you can view the data easily they have websites that total all aggregate tournament data, you can see the thousands of player opinions on old armies.

One of the rationale for doom getting the boot was because he did not have an official model. While this seems a bit unlikely - Skarbrand doesn't have an official model and he's in and space marine captains on bikes don't have official models and they're a big thing, sorta - it should be noted that dataslates don't come with model releases. As such, if the no model, no rules bit is true, it's unlikely doom will get a dataslate.

From the Cruddex
And the Monobuild
Mathew Ward Deliver Us.

It was foretold that only devotion and praise to the Ward would save the Tyranids from the wrath of the Cruddace!

But the Tyranids players ignored Ward's warning!

LOLNEWCRONS they cried!

I Think he'll do what he did to the necrons to us even though that makes no sense and GW has no reason to do that, they lamented

And in so forsaking the Ward they have invited the very damnation they suffered back, to revisit his fell work and improve upon it.

And so the Tyranids were cast into an ever deeper pit of Crud.

I always assumed that was partly unreliable narrator. That the tithe geneseed is implanted and duplicated and stored using cloned or condmned humans. I.E. as they do when mustering a new chapter or saving one on the brink ala Lamenters. The Mechanicus tried to even make its own chapter from scratch using Iron Hands geneseed. The Steel Confessors.

The big issue being the tithe is mandatory to check for purity. While also to keep the chapters to fighting strength. The big issue being that the mechanicus and highlords are technically holding all the extra geneseed hostage to make sure chapters don't go all Badab on them. Else expand to legion levels. One of the few control options that Terra has over Astartes autonomy.

Problem chapters would be totally cut off after heavy losses. Especially if the big I is involved in those losses.

All the writers for GW will succumb, only Kelly and Vetock seem to be holding out but slowly failing.

Kelly will soon become a Chaos/Xeno Spawn hybrid due to his love of Eldar, Chaos, and Xeno armies, while Vetock will use his last ounce of strength to become the new Ork writer, and give them a good codex before vanishing into dust, leaving GW with nothing but broken down writers. After all, his favorite armies are Orc and Orks.
