The question isn't "Has White Dwarf gone down hill?" but how far down the poop chute has it slid?
It is a far, far cry from what it was to what it is now.
For us, here in the antipodes, it started its slide with the removal of the local team, and its replacement with generic, flavourless and generally wrong "battle reports" taken from the original UK edition.
Now it's just the UK edition with local pages at the back showing the stores, dealers and events that will be running (and in most cases, local prices for goods*)
* This months didn't show the prices for the two biggies of "spearhead".
The Fire prism and the manticore kits. A day before release, my local store still hadn't been told.
Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
