Because there are only a handful of viable configurations for tactical squads and mixed special/heavy only fits into one of them, which most people do not limit that combination to.

Plasma cannon its heavy, so its cropples the squads ability to move, if you dont plan on moving,take a squad with 4 heavy weapons and not waste a scoring unit on 1plasma cannon.

You know, maybe next time you want a challenge, don't bring a gun to a knife fight and then bitch about it being over in a second. If you want a challenge, how about bringing a rusty spoon? Now there's a challenge.

When people want a challenge in video games, they usually set the difficulty to harder, make their opposition tougher and cut down on their own benefits. They don't put it on easy and stock up on OP gear to go stomp on some rats and whine about the lack of a challenge.

That is only 1/3 of the issue.

The other 2/3 of it are that A) he is blaming you for learning from the past two games on how to deal with the list, B) no matter how much they might like the list by the 3rd loss it should be evident that it cannot work and they should move on instead of continuously trying and getting more and more ass pained and deflecting the blame onto everyone around them but themself.

Actually, giving up on lists after 1 or 2 loses is stupid. No list will win every game yet you think it losing once means it is a lost cause. That is true... if you suck at the game and rely on net lists to stand a chance. But, if you are actually good, you can make some lists work WITH PRACTICE. That is, you might lose the first number of games while you figure your list out and develop a working strategy for it.

>he is blaming you for learning from the past two games on how to deal with the list

This has always stuck me as one of the bigger problems with my LGC. Several of the guys have large collections but two of them in particular have stagnated into running the same lists consistently, because you always know what they are going to take and how they are going to play them it is easy to beat them and they get super indignant because they general have losing streaks of 4 game between victories because of it. When someone tells them why they literally flip their shit screaming about not telling them how to play.

I've recently partaken in a 1500 tournament at my FLGS. When I signed up, I was told that the tourney would be somewhat competitive.

>> No.30870720

>>30870655

As someone who does not net list I still call bullshit on this.

Maybe it comes from playing with the same group of a dozen people for the last 7 years outside of the occasional tournament but when I write a list I generally know if it is or isn't going to work against a given person by the time I've finished writing it.

I will totally concede the point that if I was playing in a bigger metagame this might not be so easily the case.

You also seem to be forgetting one this: Every time you do lose with that list you are not the only person learning. Your opponents will see just as much information about it as you, especially if it a 3rd party watching the game, they will likely notice more than either person actually playing. Then the next time you bring the list out they will have an even better idea of how to beat it than before.

Do people really only use one list? I have a bunch of lists that I randomly cycle through. One game I might go air heavy with 3 vendettas, 3 squads of storm troopers, 4 squads of vets (2 in vendettas, 2 in chimeras), and a CCS loaded out with plasma (toss it in a vendetta to drop 4 plasma guns in an enemy backfield). The next game I might field lots of tanks, with 3 demolishers, 6 squads of mech vets (with demo charges obviously), and a CCS hiding behind an Aegis Defence line with a quad gun. Another game I might double up on my FoC so I can spam mech vets with grenade launchers and demo charges with a few static units behind an Aegis also having missile launchers. Another game I might use my favourite (if crap competitively) list involving 20 mechanized storm troopers, 2 vanquishers, 30 veterans, and 3 vendettas.

My current marine list is a captain, 3 tactical squads with 2 in rhinos, 2 land raiders and a tri-lascannon predator. I've been using it for the last few months(I game maybe every 3-4 weeks) and have met some success. My previous list I was using since late 5th ed. and instead of land raiders it had dreadnoughts, a command squad deathstar and land speeders or flyers.

I lose a lot because I can't be arsed to write specific lists for variable matches(more of unit X for fighting army Y, blah, blah, blah), so I take a list I like the look of, make a paragraph or two of fluff and plug away with it until I get bored of playing it.

GW sold SM Veterans with combi-weapon and SM Veterans with Power Weapons blisters. Each blister had two models in it. They didn't call them Veteran Sergeants on the blisters. I think that would imply they guys did get access to wargear.

>> No.30871121

>>30871052
How was it implied? Terminator Honors entry doesn't say the model gains access to wargear and the vet entry only gives sarge access to wargear. Nothing says regular vets with honours get access to wargear. Don't remember anyone ever fielding vets with wargear. Or vets in general in 4e.

And combi-sternguard in a pod in 5e wasn't exactly an auto-win option. So what incentive was for someone to invest in it, when they could have used any number of other builds or units they might have had or were available to them?

>> No.30871122

>>30871020
I mean even if you actually do fluff out your army it isn't that hard to modify it to include options for special lists. For example lets say my last list is my default list. My vendetta and deepstriking storm trooper list (first mentioned) might be a special mobile strike force, or simply a combat situation when a unit lost their tanks and most of their chimeras and is mostly fighting from the skies. The second list could be a specialized vanguard force tasked with breaching enemy defences. I just find it weird to limit yourself to one list, it is like playing CoD and limiting yourself to a single weapons loadout, never switching to another.

I mean if someone likes their list I'm not gonna complain, I just find it strange.

First off all, GW sold multi-model Veteran blisters. They wouldn't have done that if it was just Sergeants.

You sure, because all I can find are blisters marked "veteran sergeants". And any vets they sell are mostly fancy space marines. Can't find pics of any old dual-combi blisters.

And second, seeing that Guard was never a big thing around here, the need for sternguard was much smaller. I actually thought about getting some in 5e, but never found a use for them that couldn't be taken over by another unit.

LOL. At least construct a good argument on how CS is bad without being a fucknut. Combat squading allows target saturation, splitting up of resources, like those special and heavy weapons and combi's, allows more flexibility and transport options.

I can only assume you think a 30 brick of Death company is some unstoppable kill machine if combat squading is so bad. I can't tell you how many IG chimera's, Russ's manticores, Tau fish, and Deldar skimmers I have murdered because I kicked out a combat squad.

If you clump up against a shooting army like an idiot, you just let your opponent win through dice averages. Combat squads has a possibility of having a fucking marine or 2 run around like a fucker due to the vagaries of random dice, which is horrible for non-demons and non-MEQs.

It's why death stars don't work on the Grognard circuit. If you tell your opponent to roll all his dice on one huge unit you just auto lose. L2MEQ.

Versus infantry or air the squad is a dead squad, so unless the squad is firing mostly on vehicles the entire game you are wasting a ton of points.

Anyway. GW pushed for a rock-paper-scissors-HAMMER approach to the game.

You're forced to take some of the first three, but you can always take the HAMMER in good quantity.

Lots of people pick the hammer because they don't want to waste money. The game is too linear to assume there will never be a HAMMER in the mix.

IG it's Vendettas, Valks, some FW stuff like Vultures with Punisher Cannons and the 7" pie plates. Meltavets. Math-hammer on variable dakka with boom boom then dakka.

Dark Eldar it's all about the venom-dakka and lance spam min/max.

Just take a bunch of venoms with as many splinter cannons you can shove into there.

Then outfit your other choices with dark lances and spread them out a bit so you can pick things off easily one by one without wasting shots. They're that effective, to the point you don't go "I need this many to hurt that" to "I could kill this with any shot now, I hope I don't waste shots".

3+ to hit, 4+ to hurt unless you can hurt it easier. Just get in range and roll enough dice and they drop. The same happens to your units too by the way, which is where you use speed to get "just within range" to get those first shots off. Getting first turn only matters if the enemy can damage you in the first turn or not. It will be a blur after that.

But I have fun, and I usually find that I'm able to do a decent job having a fun game against opponents running decent tier armies.

Except that one guy with 2 riptides and a whole bunch of markerlights. But hey, I managed to charge the riptide with a single marine and do a wound to it before the riptide pasted him.

Sure thing nigger, I love to pay a unit of overpriced Havocs that can't shoot at anything but flyers.

At least the autocanon spam is still decent enought to take down flying junks like a Dakkajet but good luck trying to get down a Stormraven without getting yourself a fucking Helldrake.

No, seriously. Why do you people still do it? You acknowledge that they're money-grubbing jews of the highest caliber, who "balance" the game so as to make sure you always have to buy the latest and most expensive stuff to be competitive. You admit this. And yet you continue to--completely willingly--walk into their store, bend over, and let them fuck you in the ass again and again.

Why?

WHY?

Why does anyone continue to support a game that hasn't been good in almost a decade, and which only continues to get more and more expensive?

Because GW wants to sell models. No one forces you to buy new models, you could go without buying flyers or AA if you wanted, you would just suck. If you play with some reasonable people you can just say "hey I live in crippling poverty despite playing Warhammer 40k, can we not use flyers in any of our games so I don't have to spend money on any new models or set up any existing units specifically for AA?" Also, almost two years is plenty of time to grab some AA. An Aegis defence line costs 30 bucks, can you really not save up 30 bucks over a year? 40k changes a lot, you can adapt to the changes, accept that your army might not be competitive, find a new game, or bitch, and bitching doesn't accomplish anything and only annoys people.

Hell if worst comes to worst, many codexes have upgrades for units to give them skyfire, for example flakk missiles, so you don't even have to buy anything new in some cases, just say a unit has skyfire and pay the points.

Never really understood this, a drop to 1/6 chance to hit is still a drop. And orks have maybe three units in the army with twin linked, so it's still just as bad for them as other races.

>> No.30881639

>>30881560
I guess you don't understand numbers

Space Marines are BS4. Snap shots are always at BS1. There is a 3 point drop in effectiveness, a 75% loss of shooting power.

Orks however at BS2 only lose 50% of their firing power.

At a d6 scale this is a huge difference. Lootas only need to get 2/3 6's to bring down a flyer quite easily

Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go.

Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.
