I'd honestly be fine with CP
and Strategems going away entirely. I think it just added another difficult to balance mechanic to an already difficult to balance game.
Some armies have absolutely terrible strategems, and others have great ones. Some armies can easily get a lot of CPs
and others can't.
Just remove the whole thing for 9th please. It was a cool idea that didn't really work well.
I'd be okay with this.
Gods that would make this game so boring. I can see why you guys want it, but no thanks.
See, this would seem to highlight a real issue. Stratagems are little more than an add-on. If the game is boring without them then this would seem to indicate that the base game is badly-designed. Because the last 7 editions all lacked Stratagems and so if they're now the only thing that makes the game fun then it would seem there have been some real missteps in transposing the base game and its armies into 8th.
If I might ask: let's imagine for a moment that Stratagems and CPs
were both removed entirely. In your mind, what could GW
do to make 40k
fun (beyond just bringing both back again)?
