Indeedy. Definitely one the best things about Apocalypse. Taking extensive early casualties is still going to be a problem later in the game, but nowhere near as outright disastrous as now.

Also helps prevent or at least reduce resentment at paying good money for a unit which is repeatedly smashed to bits in the first turn, game in, game out,

And hey, unit wound counters of some description are another tool you can sell folks.

If it went that way hopefully los blocking terrain goes reduced though or alpha strike to win becomes beta strike to win and gives incentive to not move from dz or get blown.

Wishing for AA or D12s is as futile as people claiming the Old World might be 10mm. It just won’t happen. GW gonna GW.

Still, 8th has been hella fun so a tidy-up and refresh is fine in my book.

WTF is that! [in a good way]

Looks good for Necrons- I hope they give us a teaser of some new models for some of the factions. I'm mostly interested in the fluff development and new models - really hoping they revamp some Nids/ evolve them forward..

Yeah that looks like a floating throne. Thought it's terrain but that's probably the king. So the left of him is a Void Dragon / plastic C'tan?

I hear this argument a lot, but it all comes down to the time sinks. And the biggest time sinks are decision making and rolling+rerolling buckets of dice. Decision making is already being addressed at events with chess clocks, and rolling... well, it will most probably stay with us no matter the activation model. In the very worst-case scenario events, where time-frame matters, will cut points - to 1750 or something. Things we can get from alternate activation are far superior IMO - actual play and counter-play, instead of winning at list-building stage or executing turn-wide combos, for instance.

If I'm mad for the price increases but also love everything GW makes, what makes that of me? A white knight? An idiot? An addict? Hypocrite? I mean at least i never buy at GW retail prices...

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.
