I already know the rules will still be IGOUGO and we will retain the same issues that the game always ends up having because apparently nobody in their writing department notices this.

I love IGOUGO and I hope they'll never switch to AA. There's plenty of other games for that.

Because me playing for an hour while the opponent does nothing as I simply clear half their army is a much better way to do things, absolutely. It's not interactive, less realistic, and much easier to abuse. The only defense people make is "that's how it's always been" and that's a piss poor defense at this point.

The problem is not which version of IGoUGo GW uses (alternating player turns, alternating phases, alternating units), or what interaction mechanic is used (reactions interrupt actions, alternating unit activation etc)

the problem is that they always want to mix things up for more social interaction, ending up with the worst of all worlds

if they would stick to one version (like alternating phases with one type of reaction system) and no future rules would change that, it won't be a big problem

Well not really surprising text if true. Of course it being so unsurprising makes it very easy to fake. New logo is bit harder to fake but hardly unsurmountable. There's also 1 non-gw like phrase there though not earthshattering

It's similar to the Kill Team one. The current 40K logo is too iconic for me, changing it would be a low blow. Not that the supposedly new one is awful, I'm just too attached to the current one.

If this is true that everything remains compatible pretty much nothing will change. IGOUGO and D6 are the main problems. Players need to alternate between each other in one turn, and D10/D12 dice are needed.

Even D8 would be a significant improvement over D6.

Maybe but "seismic shifts" in 40k are rare and anyone expecting 9th edition to be anymore then a cleanup was kidding themselves

Best case if there is a new edition is a revamp of the CP system, terrain and LoS. Vast majority of the system will remain the same.

Yeah. Good luck keeping codexes etc compatible with even aa let alone new dices and codexes staying compatible in 9th is about as certain as anything can be

Eh new codexes would be coming anyway. New edition isn't required to that.

If you want game where you don't need to buy new books to replace old ones you are sooo in wrong game

If there is a new edition...anyone expecting seismic changes is in for a rude awakening. We've just entered "3rd Edition" the sequel.

As with their typical design processes, the next edition or two (or...five) will be tied to the same basic stat line/codices, etc. This essentially prevents major changes to most meaningful things. Remember, 7th edition used the same spine that 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th used. While there was a little room to move and adjust things, the codices will remain the codices - for quite some time.

Sadly I think this is going to be a huge issue moving forward unless they have discovered some sneaky way to get out from behind BS 2+, etc. They painted themselves into a serious corner by going to fixed values instead of the old WS/BS system which allowed much more room (weirdly they didn't use much of that that space in previous editions of the game).

Using old codices will also mean a lot of retro-reference material if they want to make substantial changes (points costs, abilities, etc.). It will not be a clean new edition, but rather a patchjob.

Some armies need a new codex because what they currently have are trumped up Indexes.

But we have to wait until after the new edition drops before we get the new Forge World books?

They literally did that with the Chaos Marine codex and Space Marine codex without a new edition, and they say that the existing codexes will stay.

Don't think this is a realistic whinge tbh.

From the FAQ it sounds like they won’t be announcing the contents of the new starter set today which is a shame.

Well, no, but you can easily read between the lines and tell it will involve necrons at least.
