Yeah the rep system going does suck, especially for non-special-super-duper members like me whose names aren't all spiffy. People won't know that members like us had gained pretty good reps and recognition for our efforts over the years.
Maybe a special one off medal for all those with large reps so we will always have something to remember the old system by and set us apart from others?
Anyway, the reason I am rarely here is that I simply quit 40k. I was going to start a whole thread about it (not me quitting, but quitting in general) and have since moved on to the much greener pastures of Malifaux.
Its cheaper on the old wallet, more fun to model, and suits my gaming tastes more than 40k.
I like working with small groups of models so you can't be shot to pieces on turn one, and then each model feels special so you can devote more time to painting and modelling. Plus I just got sick as f*ck watching everyone cum over space marines and their awesomeness.
Even Chaos Space Marines (whose new release I thought was badly botched) are still frickin space marines and the lack of the mechanicum after all this time is retarded considering their are all the different codices for space marines.
The dumbing down and over-stretching of the Horus Heresy series was the final nail in the coffin. I used to love the fluff, but I wish they would go darker instead of always holding back for sales to young gamers with 'pester power' who love awesome marines.
I still check in on Heresy from time to time but 40k just doesn't appeal to me anymore and talking about other gaming systems on here isn't the best.
But that's my own selfish reasons. I really just can't stand 40k anymore after experiencing how awesome Malifaux is.
