Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wonder does fleet of claw ignore difficult terrain test?
Why not just tell him the answer if you know it?
cause if he does people will keep asking instead of looking in the BGB.
But honestly what do you expect...this is a public forum, people come here for information. If he was being lazy about it, or generally didn't know is irrelevant. I just really dont see why people make things harder than they need to be is all.
Because quite simply, it was a very easy question to answer, and he could have looked it up in the BGB in less time than it took him to type out his post. If I had given him the answer, it would only reinforce the laziness, and give precedent to post more threads with easily self-answered questions.Originally Posted by Loestal
Secondly, every time I have an opportunity to even come close to avoiding copy-write infringement, I take it.
I am with Caluin on this one. There are a lot of cases where the rules that GW writes are... *cough* less than clear, let's say. But if the thing the person wants to know is written in plain English under the exact heading that you would think to look under first, the answer is to tell them where to look. That way if for some weird reason they have gotten confused and wouldn't have thought to look there, they can, but they are not encouraged to treat the forums as a lazy man's rule book.Originally Posted by Caluin
To add even more there have been quite some people here on the forums that didn't want to buy the BGB/didn't have it and thought that we could be used instead in giving them the rules so they don't have to reveal themselves.
Asking what a rule means isn't a bad thing but people have to learn that when they want to know what something means they go straight for the BGB/FAQ and not the forum.
yea the entire reason why I asked was because I was thinking about it in class so the was no way I could look up up until later that evening in which I usually forget. next time I will just write it down and look it up myself
Please don't take this all as a "Never ask questions" statement, however. There are plenty of ambigious rulings and statements in the BGB, and most we are happy to help clarify or suggest a possible ruling for. Gods know that many of the people on LO, myself included, love a good debate over rules.Originally Posted by silvanox
