Having only started playing 40k with the introduction of 5th edition, I can't speak about how it stacks up to 4th, 3rd, etc. To me 5th simply is. In some ways it is difficult for my beloved Tau, in some ways we could wait until 6th comes out for a new codex, but 5th is simply 40k as I know it. I'll admit I've had some moments when I'm just as frustrated with GW as anyone. But when (if) Tau get a new codex, I'm sure there will be parts I will have no problem with but others will do Chicken Little impersonations over.
The point is to get the most fun out of your hobby time and money. If that means playing to win every game or painting like there's no tomorrow, do it. That includes venting on the internet. Let's remember this is the internet: we probably won't ever meet each other physically, no one will (should) be in your face and/or threaten you. If you disagree with someone feel free do take either of the following actions: IGNORE THEM (this is the internet) or Rebut their argument with one of your own based on facts in a polite manner.
Now let's get back to ripping up or defending 5th and not each other, folks.
That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.
