Default Is anyone else worried that.. year they're going to rerelease 40k and over simplify the rules, to the point where the game is no longer fun / tactical?

Not really. Why would they do that?

And if you're really worried to just stick to 5th ed.

Actually, it seems the rumours are pointing to a pretty big overhaul... One that will make the rules that need dumbing down, simpler and that will make the ones that were dumbed down a bit too much a little more complex.

So, no... I'm not overly worried. Even though they are very early rumours, they usually do have a hint of truth in them.

Of what I've heard is that the rules are becoming more complex, but these rumors can of course be false.

Worrying about it would serve no purpose, so no.

5th ed could use a few tweaks to straighten out some rules. But Im not at all worried.
I imagine there is scope for a truly dumbed down starter rule set for the younger generations. When I play with my boy, all cover gets treated relatively the same, no area rules or morale checks etc. Id also like to see the re-introduction of cardboard cut out vehicles in the game box along with some pop up scenery.

When it gets here it gets here. The internet will rage for a long time but will play anyways, andpeople will reaten to quit only for large numbers of them coming back anyways.

You know like what happens everytime GW does anything really.

Anybody does anything really. Just look what every time facebook changes a button.

I'm really not worries since I mostly just play with my friends, and we'll just stick to 5th if it sucks.

I've never seen impossible as a reason not to try.
