  1. My personal sadness in this is that ITC=WAAC in the minds of many players. The definition of WAAC amongst most tournament players is Win at All Costs - they will cheat, obfusicate, be unclear, ask for takes backs and not give takes backs, etc etc. I've played a ton of tournament games and i've played the majority of them against good people that were fun and lenient. Ive played some against jerks.. I've also played a fair shair of pickup and OFCC games. The majority of them against good people that were fun and lenient. I've played some against jerks. It doesn't matter what system you play in, you will play against these kinds of people. Ive meet narrative fluffly players who were not enjoyable to play against and left a bad taste in my mouth and others that were great. The guy mentioned by pax above abusing rules and changing things just to win is a WAAC player, but most are not. I'd say the odds are the same both ways in my experience.
  2. Excellent use of the lieutenant!
  3. What I was referring to was that it is the ITC that is changing the rules. That is not the case. It is GW that is changing the rules.
  4. The funny thing is the ITC is The Book. The rules are the same, with only one minor terrain rule to help the damage output of armies in 40k. The missions are different and that is where you get the different feel of what is good and bad. Its the same as any comp system, in any comp system certain builds rise to the top as to what is the best in that comp system. There is a lot of talk about what is best and maximized, but people are always surprising the meta with armies that go agains the grain such as Thomas Oakey's Blood Angels that went 5-0 at Boise CUp. There is a big misnomer that ITC is still changing the rules, but since Frontline got closer to GW and GW got closer the the tournament system, they haven't needed to change rules for quite some time.
  5. Since this is the weekend of boise cup, I won't be able to go, but still want to be able to participate. Suggest a paypal me link or something similar so people can send more cash.
  6. Mary Poppins Returns - 2/10 No thanks. Went to appease the wife and wanted to die multiple times in viewing. By the end I was trying to keep my spirits up but knew I could only last 1 or 2 more songs. I was hoping the songs would end so I could get to the story parts, kinda opposite of what its intended to be. I have no plans to watch it again, even for the children. They can go to the other room and watch on a laptop with headphones...
  7. @paxmiles If someone is being rude and using the players packet against you, that is a violation in and of itself. The removing models is intended for the person owning the player to remove the models, not their oppoent. If you have say, a guardsmen being shot at by a full unit of whatever, you can take the model off without rolling saves. But if you feel you have a chance, you as the controlling player can ask for it to be rolled out. Sorry you feel that way about the ITC. I personally enjoy the format and find you will find jerks in whatever format you play in. I've played them in friendly settings and in tournament settings.
  8. Also it should be noted that if a player is abusing the code of conduct for their advantage, that is itself a violation. The idea of the code of conduct is to help players know how they should treat each others, like"Norms" for meetings, it is more for the people that are abusers of the game, and not for the everyday joe. But the everyday Joe can learn things from the document like playing faster and speaking their intention about rolls and such.
  9. You got any pics of what that looks like post spray? Interested. Finished pieces would work.
  10. I'd look at putting a thunder hammer/storm shield on the watch captain. Makes him much more surviveable.
  11. This isn't really true. Each ITC event can do whatever they want, just need to have a winner of some sort. TO's don't need to use itc missions and can construct it pretty how they want. Now, many will do what FLG does for BAO, SoCal, and LVO, but that isn't the case in every situation as Nova, Adepticon, Renegade, and many more do their own thing and still classified as an ITC event. There is a min point cap at 1000 and scoring, but that is about it.
