A GW manager mentioned that the new way charges will be declared in fantasy will be randomly?
Am I the only one that thinks that its ridiculous? I mean, some armies a dependent on getting the charge where others can sit on their butts. This can only favor those that can weather charges well.
Rumour has it the distance will be randomly generated like in War of the Ring, not the charging itself.
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Charging won't matter as much now anyway as fighting will strictly be done in initiative order. Also, casualties will be removed from the back, so you can't wipe out the front line and get no attacks back.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Thats... dumb. That... just stupid. So how are some armies going to even function now? This is another rule change to screw over minimum size squads and promote buying more stuff from GW. Surprise, surprise. By charging I meant distance, and a random distance, makes no sense to me. It's actually only my pet peeve with the LOTR rules. I mean with 40k, difficult terrain checks make sense, but all the time? A runner, who trains, if he or she can run a mile, will run a mile. So how does a random charge distance make sense!! I hold off to see what the rules are, but if there is even part truth to this, I'm just adopt the magic system (assume its as good as it sounds) and keep the ol combat rules.
I think that the charger get +1 to combat resolution.
That's what I've heard- the +1 to combat resolution for charging. It will replace striking first in charges.
The only armies who benefit from charging anymore are cavalry, and while yes, this does p*** me off, I'm expecting to see 8th edition tank the game system and turn it into a clone of 40k dicehammer (bad news for me, who has lost entire tournaments thanks to dice).
If the game gets too rough, keep your models and wait for a new edition, and start up another hobby in the meantime. I'm looking forward to turning some wrenches on my car- maybe without warhammer ruling my life, I'll be motivated to pick up more hours at work, and finally save up for that nice shock-blue paintjob I want.
There's an 8th edition thread in the General Discussion section under Rumours, if you're interested in more discussion.
