they did it i think to make ppl re-think their armies and remove some stagnation on the "standard pts build".
Was having a chat with Brian A back in the summer about changing the pts at the UK gt's to add variaty. His worry was though that would extend the tourney potentially and they are often pressed for time as it is. And that dropping a game to accomadate this would no doubt be met with even more abuse along side changing the pts value.
