I can't wrap my head around GW's decision to drop the Ork Stompa a whopping 50pts. I mean it was already seen in every tournament list in the game and friendly games basically banned them because it ruins any chance at a fair battle. Last year they gave the Stompa 50% more shooting and then this year they drop it 50pts? I mean what next, giving it 3 damage tiers instead of 4? giving it an actual ballistic skill so its 1 shot supa rokkitz have a chance? What more can GW possibly do to make this thing even more OP.

If at first you don't succeed then Sky Diving isn't for you.

50 point drop is MASSIVE semper, are you daft?
You ork players are lucky, if primaris got a 50 point drop everyone would be losing their minds.

You're an ungrateful xenos player.

The Stompa is clearly meta breaking with its layers upon layers of free rules and stratagems combo wombos.... Clearly broken!! Ohh wait...

Guys guys, the 50 point drop is a typo. GW's intent is of course to increase the stompa's points by 50, only that can nerf the colossal OPness that is the Stompa.

As if a 50 points rise would at all be enough. Seriously even with +200 they would still be a steal for their points!

Clearly the Stompa is so powerful that they shouldn't even be allowed to be taken in Supreme Command Detachments. It should only be able to be taken in the first faction specific detachment where you lose 3 CP if you take it. Surely that would curb the powerhouse that is the STOMPA.

you mean like the Eight ? Even with costing 3 cp they are still op, you get 8 (EIGHT) commanders when the max you can usually run is 3!!!!1!1!!

When I heard the Stormsurge went down by 40 points I was giddy with anticipation to try one. But now that the Stompa got an EVEN BIGGER points decrease, I worry not only for my Tau but for all of 40K as a whole. Tristompa lists are just going to dominate so much we may as well all play Kill Team for now.

Vigo. Spain.

Since the Ork 5th Codex and those abusive Nobz Biker lists, Orks have been nothing less than the top dogs of the game.

With 8th I had a little hope this trend would change. But not only do orks receive an astonishing amount of undeserved releases (SIX DIFFERENT PLASTIC VEHICLES... in ONE EDITION), they also receive buff after buff even when they were allready dominating all the top tables.

At this point theres nothing left but to stop playing, is clear that GW don't want Imperial, and specially, space marine players that are so greatly counter by orks, in the game. I hope you have a good time, xenos. Is clear GW only wants to catter to you.

The final nail in the coffin was those rumours about that FW's new game system based around the War of the Beast, with resin models for 18 different ork clans... like they needed that.

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.

moving on from satire for a moment, is this a joke referancing the HH or is this a real thing? because I'd totally be on board with a war of the beast "campaign era"

The Ta'unar dropped 20 points and it's way more competitive than the Stompa ever will be, and it's not just the drones, compare it's 2+BS weaponry and weep.

I think you may be missing the point of the thread, hombre.

(The joke is that the Stompa has the worst viability in the game and a 50 pt drop is a joke.)

What are you talking about? The stompa is 600 points of OVERPOWERED WAAAAAAAGH
Knights that can shoot four times as much damage as a stompa are only 300 points of OVERPOWERED WAAAAAAAAGH.
Smash Captains that hit harder than da stompa are only 120 points of OVERPOWERED WAAAAAAGH

600 > 300 > 120

The fething gargantuan squigoth is probably a better low choice for orks.

Clearly the problem is that you're not forging the narrative hard enough when playing with the Stompa.

I thought Battle Scribe might be off, so i checked the codex, it's no where near 600 points, it's closer to double that.

In before the inevitable lock.

Stompas are the single most broken thing in all of 40k. Even Iron Hands bow before the almighty Stompa. Orks are already the top army, but to have their absolute best unit given a points CUT instead of a BUMP? What the hell are the people at GW thinking? Bunch of Ork fanboys is what they are. I get it, Orks are the poster boys of the game, but seriously? What next, Gargantuan Squiggoths get a points drop? SMDH
