more that the Long Fangs are one of the two only units (that I know of) that can split their fire, the other being Pink horrors with we are legion but they aren't firing STR 9 weapons AND have counter-attack.
I just see it as there are other units or armies that would have that type of ability more than the Space Wolves, seeing how they are meant to be a assault army. not saying Eldar should get it or whatever.
It's mainly the fact that a space marine assault army has the ability that no other (fluff-wise) more fitting chapters can do.
To be honest I kind of feel sorry for Matt Ward for all the Hate bashing that he got for the BAs and GKs, as far as I know the SW codex was written before both them (I might be wrong) and normally I really like Phil kelly's stuff, most of his other stuff are powerful but still balanced with other armies, it just seems like he went nutty for the space Vikings. Even most of the guys at my local GW agree, and a number of them have SW armies.
At Luke and B&K, we're still playing atm, they did knock out my fire prism's weapon (which for revenge is now tank shocking them for poops and giggles) but in the same turn was also able to land too Plasma cannon blasts on my pathfinders (cover saved most of them) but I just found it nutty cause out of every army I didn't expect the Space wolves to have that ability on top of everything else they have and for the general cheap cost of the units.
The games still going good, my Shadow Spectres and Dire avengers did well against Logan and his termie buddy's but the next turn I'm sending my banshees into Njal and his Termie buddies on the otherside of the battlefield, so have to wait and see.
