Have to say after 2 big updates I was surprised GW kept the finecast Herald for Slaanesh. I'd have thought they've have pulled it and if not replaced it just removed it.

Then again perhaps they are sitting on a mountain of stock that they are waiting to shift (whilst customers are waiting for a new version and not buying them?).

I'd certainly welcome deamonettes riding the new sized seekers

Ohoho looks quite interesting! I am particularly invested in PtG because of my Road to Renown project so looking to how I can accommodate the new edition has me both excited and anxious. They were very tantalizing with those details, certain factors needed to fill in the blanks are not included which makes me all the more hungry for additional reveals. Probably the point.

The queue system allows the site to function during exceptionally high traffic periods. I suppose it doubles up as a mild anti bot solution.

Getting angry about it almost as bizarre as accusing GW of elitism, because they don't want their customers to look at a DDoSed site for a couple hours as everyone hits F5 over and over again.


Except it is a ridiculous system and I'm not surprised people are angry.

Firstly, the end result is the same for the end user. Stuck in a queue or banjaxed website both have the same result- user can't get into the store and buy anything. Expect sitting in a queue is psychologically a more positive customer experience than seeing a broken webpage, even though the result is identical. Using Queue also pushes the blame on the customer base. A broken web page is GWs fault. Sitting in a long queue people just seems like the product/hobby is popular or being filled with Bots. It shifts blame from GW when all they have done is put a band aid over the real issue- their preorder system is archaic and releasing pre-orders on Saturday when head office is all but shut is ridiculous. Their webstore isn't fit for purpose.

Secondly queue is massively exploitable as it use cookies to log the time a user joins the queue and not by GW account/IP address etc. According to one post in the black library group on facebook, a user joins the store queue prior to 10am and their position in the queue is randomised. Then from 10am onwards, they join the back of the queue in order. I couldn't confirm the randomisation part, as by the time I'd gone back to the page the pre order rush was over with and the store was back to normal. But random positions or not, Queue is still exploitable and all GW have done is encourage more traffic to the site meaning longer wait times.

Queue gives the user a unique ID at the bottom of the page. Only, each Queue ID is only unique to each browser. You can join the queue twice for each browser you have installed- Once in your normal browser and once in a private browsing window. If you have three browsers installed you now have 6 spots you can 'reserve' in the queue. Opening the store in multiple browsers is how most basic scalpers grab so much stock. But now you have 'regular' folk also opening multiple sessions.

If the Queue is randomised, by joining multiple times you increase your chance of getting an early position. If the queue is using the back of the line system, its still exploitable as it was stated that if you spend more than 10 mins in the store once you are in you will be returned to the queue. So, opening up multiple spots means that if you spend too long and one session is booted out, your next window should be the next in line to access the store. Your items will still be in your cart meaning you can continue where you left off.

There are a couple of other tricks that people use to make this even more efficient, but I'm not sharing them here.

No fancy tools or software needed. No VPN. No Bots or scripts. GW have hyped this set massively, told everyone in the stream to buy it quick before it sells out and then invited the biggest amount of traffic they have ever seen to their webpage that can't handle the regular weekly traffic.

On a personal level, I'm done. My group are still play 1st Ed anyway. I was looking forward to this set, I'd have brought into a lot more of the new orcs had I gotten it but I'm not fighting to get into the store to buy a game. Its a hobby, not a chore. I'm certainly not going to buy the set piecemeal in two weeks time at the huge increase in price. If people think sitting in a virtual queue for an hour and given a 10 min 'RUSH BUY IT QUICK' is an acceptable alternative to 'WEBSTORE BROKE' then fine. But its not for me, I've better things to do this weekend.

I didn't see it mentioned anywhere in the article really, and I love me some small scale games that escalate.

From 'Sunday Preview – Dominion is Almost At Hand, so Prepare For Warhammer Age of Sigmar’s Best Ever Edition' on Warhammer Community:

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Core Book
A new edition launch box wouldn’t be complete without a mighty tome full of rules, background lore, and spectacular art. The 360-page hardback Warhammer Age of Sigmar Core Book is a thing of beauty. It includes all of the information you need to get started in the new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, complete with a monstrous background section that brings you right up to speed with all the latest developments in the aftermath of the Broken Realms saga.

The Core Book also includes rules for fighting open play battles, and a section dedicated to the detailed Path to Glory system that lets you grow your forces across progressive narrative campaigns. For competitive play, there’s a matched play Battlepack comprising a set of balanced battleplans.

The rulebook.

Main reason to get the brick if 40k is anything to go with. Ghb will have rules for matched play. Narrative aka ptg is only in the brick.

Must say, i am quite tired of everything GW makes always being the bestest, greatest-est ever-est thing EVER by now.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Well that's just marketing. The new iPhone is the best ever; the new Graphics card is the bestever, the new car - heck even a new formula for a food product is the best ever. It's just marketing.

Indeed. I’d love an example of a new product that was marketed as “well it’s kinda the same as the last one” or “not as good as what it’s replacing” because i cannot think of a single example.

I can think of lots of products that were actually inferior, but they certainly weren’t sold as if that were the case :-p

Looks like NDA has lifted for people with preview copies.

Facehammer is currently doing a ‘10 best things from AoS 3.0’ stream on their Youtube channel right now. And some Q&A.

Not sure if its been said previously, but Warscroll Batalions are no longer matched play legal.

As someone who habitually skipped over PtG stuff in battletomes, and was kind of annoyed with it tbh, I’m very much intrigued by this new system. Our boy Bottle didgood.

Warscroll battalions confirmed dead in matched play

Also in bit of a surprise objective control area unchanged. And in a change you determine objective control after deployment so he who goes first no need to leave anybody to objective.

I mean, nobody expected it to be less than Indomitus, right?

It will be interesting to see how closely new scenery releases will match 40k release. In 40k, we had

-Board pack released alongside Indomitus
-Command Edition featuring board (with printed deplyment zones ) and Vertigus scenery
-scenery from Command Edition bundled with board pack as Command Edition expansion
-Battlezone Vertigus with boards, Command Edition scenery and a terrain piece unique to this set

I'm happy that I skipped the board pack because Command Edition expansion was a better deal. Had I known better, I would have waited month and a half for Battlezone: Vertigus though. Release schedule was brilliant from GW point of view as they didn't reveal the better bundles until the previous had been on sale for a while.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

unsurprisingly my online supplier has been warned that this is limited and he may not get all he wants so to get his pre-orders in as soon as he can

so if your planning to get it from an FLGS/Online supplier get your expression of interest/holding deposit in ASAP, to maximise the chance they can actually get it for you
