I have a bit of a problem, all my regular 40k opponents have decided they hate the new rules and will only play fantasy or 3rd edition. Ok, fantasy is great, but after so long I want to get back to 40k and use the new rules, I don't want to do 3rd edition because then I can't use any of the updates or the new marine codex or anything.
Does or has anyone else had this problem with their opponents refusing to play the new rules? What can I do about it, it seems that no matter what I say they just dislike the new rules and refuse to play them, there must be some way to convince them otherwise. They haven't even got the new rulebook, all they know is what is publically available plus what I told them from my rulebook...
If a Player is retarded to the point of not playing the new rules 'cause he can't rhino rush you anymore or shoot trough everything and all, he doesn't deserve to play the game anyway.
find new poepleto play versus
or wait until they get a new codex and are excited for 40k again
what a long strange trip its been
show them the new rules as much as possible...they are basically the freaking same...plus every army has certain advantages now that they should have had the whole time which make the armies characterful and such...if they dont want a characterful army then your stumped and have to find new opponants
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
Pfft. "I don't Wanna play the new rules because I don't like them"
Can they be anymore... childish then that?
Your friends are very weird, sure I know people that plays 2nd ed but they do it for fun, they are old vets who loves the game. Though THEY also play useing the new rules.One of the primary thing they thought of in the new rules was that you shouldn't be able to rhino rush.not playing the new rules 'cause he can't rhino rush you anymore
Okay we still got 2 races that still can rush with transport:
Dark Eldar and Orks.
Though before all could do a transport rush, now 2. Sure you can jump out and assault from a Land Raider but that cost much in point and only useing it for transport is a waste of points.
Try to change your friends minds and give them new tactics.
The New Rhino Rush goes like this (depending on what kind of board you play on):
12" forward behind cover. Next turn, 12" forward and deploy your troops behind the rhino, though only if you are in range of the enemy.
Thats the basic, now if you unload like 40 marines onto the enemy HE is going to have some trouble.
I was kinda hoping the new marines would do that, apparently their rules are now 'strange' too... They like some of it, but not other parts, and the cool new models are 'too detailed'. Isn't that what we want? :huh:or wait until they get a new codex and are excited for 40k again
I'll have to try and convince them that the new rules are pretty much the same as the old ones except with minor improvements, that could work in time. Waiting for more new codexes and armies they have been looking forward to is going to take a long time... My nids haven't seen battle for several months already. I thought when SoC ended it might be time to try out new rules, but no they insist on playing 3rd...
Thanks for the replies, I will use some of these points soon to try and convince them again, hopefully they will see the light.
i happen to like the new rules even though some of them do not help out my orks at all.
but i do not have this problem at my local store.
maybe if your gaming buddies gave the new rules a try they may be more inclined to do them.
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
maybe you could use the new rules and they can use the old rules, and when youve ownedthem all with your rapid fire and highly motivated tanks, they'll get the message that its not all that bad
I remember the exact same wanker attitude to the 2nd Ed, then to the 3rd Ed, same with warhammer - it just takes some people longer than others to get used to not being allowed to do certain no-brain combos anymore

Another idea that you might want to try..and this one would be fun for you. Lure new players to the game. Those who can't play Teach! Find some noobs, feed them all the fluff they can stand, show them cool models and bring them into the hobby. Not only will you get some new blood into your gaming pools but then you get to be the old wise veteran gamer!
