It's because having them be Lovecraftian Elder God Wannabees who eventually destroy everything seemed more "poetic" and "deep" to them than actually having them be a balanced and likable faction fluffwise that actually embodies the Chaotic nature of the Warp in stead of just vaguely encapsulating some vague metaphor about mankind being destroyed by it's sins.

GW writing is hit or miss, with a giant block of lead leaning things towards "miss".

>It wasn't that the Imperium "won" space, its that Chaos did get that specific objective, the only one they failed. But that wasn't even the objective of the Imperium, they needed to hold select worlds and destroy the Blackstone Fortresses before they reached Cadia, all of which they failed.

>Chaos basically won everything, with every major planet under contest being dominated utterly by chaos, including Chaos.

>The story was retcon'd for two main reasons:

>1) There was an outcry by the rather large eldar player base, who felt completely betrayed by their reward for being the only competent faction on their side being losing one of their only important characters, creating bad press.

>2) They released a new Chaos Codex, expecting a more fair fight for chaos with the buff. But Chaos 3.5 was probably the best codex ever released in GW history, combinding fluff with in game mechanics to create SOLID armies that felt fantastic. This threw increadible support for Chaos by players rushing out and buying new chaos armies, abandoning the Imperial Side for Chaos, then playing the strongest codex in the game at the time. The Imperial side got annihilated utterly, and the story significance would have limited releases by GW as they originally expected a real stalemate, not one-sided slaughter.

>So knowing this, GW ret-con'd the Black Crusade in the next official book, pushing it back to minute to midnight.

You are making no sense, faggot.

Campaign books are biased towards Imperials regardless of who is involved. For example, Death Masque which featured Deathwatch vs Eldar. As we know, the Eldar are the most broken army at the moment but they are the most shafted army when it comes to the fluff. Death Masque was no different.

In Death Masque GW literally murdered the Eldar race and dashed to dust TEN FUCKING YEARS of story of the Eldar story build up just to hype their new Deathwatch release and character.

Warpstorms have nothing to do with surrounding life. In fact, Warpstorms can happen anywhere even in areas that are lifeless. The smaller ones travel around. But that's besides the point, show me where it';s said that Nid Shadow can shut them down.

>I could go on about how orks are supposed to beat up demons mid transit

Irrelevant, the fight can go both ways. You implied that the Waaagh! effect would banish the daemons. Show me proof.

And this isn't about Chaos or its strength. It's about the nature of the general Warp and its (un)natural effect on space. You made claims that are false and cannot back them up.

Magnus lost on Fenris but got given a consolation prize. Fenris is in fact healing and getting better. The people are seeded with Chaos taint and they might pose a problem to Woofs recruit in the far future. That's it.

And I was talking specifically about campaign books which the Imperium wins again and again or never really loses.

Fall of Cadia is a campaign book so this makes me depressed since I know that GW follows an unbroken pattern when writing these books. Cadia ain't gonna fall and the traitors will lose because nope you cannot have the Imperium lose ever.

No, it doesn't. The Warp is an alternative universe that exists with or without life. Even in life is destroyed, the Warp and Chaos will continue to exist since they exist in a universe that knows no time or space.

Also we have confirmation that before the Warp of Heaven the Warp was infested with Chaos daemons. The Old Ones constructed massive planet sized prisons to contain and imprison the daemons (source Traitor's Hate/Angel's Blade).

>Incorrect. The eldar birthed slaanesh, who has shown no historical influence before his birth.

Actually, Slaaneshi daemons influenced the Eldar into birthing him (Source Farseer and MoM novel).

Also Slaanesh created Be'lakor WAAAAAAY before the fall. And Be'lakor was his active champion in the galaxy for a long time.

>Warp entities being timeless would negate the entirety of 40k lore,

Wrong. See >>50826015

>rendering the emperor never-existant because shamans wouldn't exist in the first place.

Path of Heaven says that the Chaos Gods hid within the depths of the lowest layers of the Warp and are now emerging.

But that doesn't matter because the Emperor wasn't created by the shamans. He is a Perpetual. Perpetuals are subspecies of the human race.

Half of the Orks were ordered by Ghaz to go work for Abaddon and other were meant to go fight the Tau. Ork players decided to say fuck that and went on their own adventure called the "Green Kroosde" and conquered some planets.

Necrons actually were meant to work against Chaos to destroy the blackstone fortresses. I think they destroyed one before the other one eliminated their fleets.

Tyranids players did nothing noteworthy.

Dark Eldar I think sided with the Eldar.
