So I was looking over the leaked rules and though I know they may not be real what do you all think of eldar skimmers going to 8 inch move? I have always played eldar for their speed but now their tanks (May) be dropping from 12 to 8 move and crusing from 24 to 16. This is a HUGE difference and it will really mess with my mech playstyle. If they are doing this I think they will really need to drop points or up shooting and foot sloggers. Do you think I am reading this right?
Well I guess with a rule leak comes some updates. Leaked Changes!

Here is something neat! Everything has an evasion value. Think of it as a ws for shooting. Eldar tanks get a 3 (Which is normal) so marines hit on a 3+ like normal BUT because marine tanks has a 2 (or 1 if not moving) Eldar hit on either a 3+/2+ (BS4) or a 3+/3+ (BS3) so it will be easyier to hit them. They will be a little tougher but it means we will hit a lot more!
AND! I found out eldar acutally will GAIN speed. An eldar veicle can now move 16" and shoot one weapon! If it stays still it can shoot each weapon twice! That means 2 twin linked bright lance shots. Warning if it does not move most enemies can hit it on a 2+! Ouch.

Mind saying where you got these, since by all accounts Eldar aren't up for a little while yet. It would seem to me that anything "leaked" would really just be a pipe dream by the guy whose doing the leaking.
