Icon Necron Rules Update Question

Necrons have been around for a long time now and talk of a need codex started at the end of 3rd ed and is still going on with no end in sight.

But one thing that keeps coming up over the years is that Necrons are going to lose their special rules. Not an update but to bring it into line with 5th ed but a full remove and replacement. Like WBB gone, replaced will become FNP, and Gauss gone, replaced will become rending.

What i want to know is why players feel this way? Why should Necrons lose what makes Necrons, Necrons in 40K? I know that GW hasn't, nor will they ever say what their plans are for a new codex until they are ready to ship it. But why do players think that Necron special rules need to go away?

So let's hear it,
1. Do you think GW will/needs to replaced WBB?
2. Do you think GW will/needs to replaced Gauss?
3. Do you think GW will/needs to replaced Phase out?
4. If yes to any of the above why do you think it needs to change?

There are already a hundred threads about this. You can find out everything you want to know from reading them. Jervis has said that it is possible there won't be a new codex until 6th ed., so any further speculation at this time is pointless. Just read the other threads and you will find out exactly what people think - everything has already been said.

Given the current rumoured release schedual, Necrons will be the second codex out next year.

Also I can pretty much guarentee that what makes Necrons, Necrons will not be removed. At most only improved or rebalenced.

Yeah its like Shadow of the Warp was removed from Tynarids cause its a special rule and so- oh wait they still have it.

Thats pretty much my argument.

The current rumours are that WBB will be replaced by FNP.
Gauss rules will be replaced with rending.
Phase out will change somehow, if not be removed.

WBB just confuzzles teh noobs.
Necrons have too many special rules that are different to the USRs. They are trying to get away from each army having different SRs and get ALL of them using the SAME USRs (so that they are UNIVERSAL).

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
