Cool to know that a Salamanders player who points out that they have a sub-50% win rate is just an apologist. "Anyone who does not agree with my premise is an apologist" is a pretty silly statement to make, and yet here we are.

Is that against non-astartes factions or is that overall? If that winrate is including losses against non-Salamander astartes supplements, the Salamanders player could simply be bad at math or understanding what the statistical data actually represents.

Overall excluding mirror matches. You're still making the assumption that the only correct and acceptable answer is that all Space Marine Chapters are OP and that any other conclusion is worthy of ridicule or mockery.

It's entirely possible that the only thing holding Salamanders back is that they're bad at fighting other Marines. It's also entirely possible that this is true for a bunch of other armies. There's no reason why Salamanders players should be called apologists for this other than people who are angry at Marines in general and bad at methodology.

There is also the possibility that the numbers for Salamanders are warped because any salamanders force can count as any other chapter without changing anything.
This phenomena could be observed when DA dropped below GK in win%, despite having almost everything any other chapter had, which were sitting safe and sound above GK.

Except that data does exist for other armies. For example, Tau do very well against marines overall (50+%) but are astronomically terrible against Eldar. (sub 40%) I haven't found any data that breaks down all the subfaction matchups, but that's entirely my point on how a sub-50% winrate for Salamanders doesn't mean much if 25% or more of the field is marines and they are bad against other astartes.

You're not wrong, but it's only ever Marines that have to take that into account. You don't see people going "oh, Nids are fine, they just get countered by the current meta". The meta is what we have to compare against; if we remove the other Astartes Chapters and leave Salamanders we're not just changing Salamanders but everyone else as well.

I think salamanders suffer from being in the last batch of supplements so not that many have played them and if you are just a marine player and not specificaly a Salamander player entering a competetive event you are probably gonna pick the over performers first so IH or IF. Left you are with the more "fluffy" or true Salamander players who care more about playing Salamanders than winning and maybe even underperform their supplement.

Salamanders, Ultra Marines and Raven Guard might all be better than the winrate show because you are more likely to have the better players play the better chapters and skew the results. The worst of the marine chapters is probably always gonna have this problem with showing slightly worse result than they would have if they were the only marine chapter available. So if its only a low(1-2) single digit below 50% against non astartes it probably is extremely well balanced. When it gets below that then it might cause concern.

I wish Junith Eruita was just a generic character!

What's funny is that when Vigilus Burns came out many (including myself) chaos players were annoyed that the jump pack chaos lord was a Black Legion specific unit and not just a jump pack chaos lord.

I'm not sure what's funny about it, but I 100% agree with your sentiment.

And that not only was said Lord for Black Legion but they could've done ONE thing to make him slightly more viable (USE THE fething SPEAR IN MELEE HOLY gak) and instead decided that a Lord using a multidamage weapon in melee with no penalties is too broken against precious Calgar.

"Sigh" looks at my reply - wonders how people fail to read or comprehend it or that it was an response to others question.

The PA aweakening books are a bizare series of so called "campaign books" - where the story seems not to matter in any way and takes up little of hte actual book, the current one and apparently the next few are just Space Marine sub factions Suppements with some other stuff thrown in to pad it out a bit.

Couldn;t each have been three books so PA2 would have been - The Blood Angels Supplement, a Hive Fleet Supplement (YES a non Marine supplement) and the lore book. same with the first one. 1 model each for the two primary factions.

At this point it hardly matters. Just avoid the topic in N&R threads, please.

It'd be nice to have spam free N&R threads, and responding is exactly as bad as raising the topic in the first place- neither post matters at all to the rest of us..

Well one year ago that was true. Nids were going quite decently as a faction, no longer top tier after the triple nerf on tyrants, but still snatching results here and there.

Then IK happened and we all know how nids cope with them, and how it ended.

Agreed. Maybe some thematic dice or a purity seal placeholder would be cool, but locking extra content like lore or rules behind a paywall is lame. It feels like day 1 DLC.

Most of the PA fiction on Warhammer Community isn't really 'lore' though. It's just stories with no real impact on wider events which don't tell you anything you wouldn't already know about the setting in general. That kind of thing seems fine to keep exclusive to an optional book.
