Age of Sigmar, now with points!

Postby hwd » Mon Apr 25, 2016 11:53 am

Dunno if anyone has been following what the guys who run the South Coast GT have done recently, but they basically invented and implemented a working points system for Age of Sigmar, which seemed to work pretty well.

Even more exciting / interesting though is that this seems to have been picked up by GW and will become 'official' in the summer!

Big change for GW's links with the community...

Yeah I've seen it. Won't make much difference at Pigmar since the regulars have all been using scgt anyway! Cool that they are interacting with the community much more.

Just a shame that they lost me about 12 months back.

Ditto. Feels like a burden lifted from my soul now i don't play their games and buy toy soldiers from other companies.

I very much get the feeling this'll be a steam-rolleresque add on, rather than a rejig. Which is good.
AoS has obviously never been intended as a serious competitive endeavour.

Nor was WHFB and yet that's what it turned into for a decent sized fraction of players. Not catering to it would be silly in the long run. And exactly like WHFB or T9A or any other game if you don't want to play in that way no-one is making you.

No-one can deny that if this balancing mechanic was in place from the beginning a lot of discontent would have been avoided, even if they had pushed the more laid back "casual" way of playing as what they thought was t most enjoyable.

Was this changed at all over time to implement a bit more fun mechanics?
