The first part of that are pretty much pre existing rumours that have been floating for a while now.
GW aren't about making things complicated, they are all about the young kids and getting them to stay, making it overly complicated and difficult to learn for a child then it's not worthy, simply because GW won't be making so much of the "summer" holiday hobby money.
BS and WS tables are fine as they are, I can't see why they would make them complicated, it makes it easier to understand in terms of real world sense. But, in gameplay it just adds more rules to learn and makes it too difficult.
Stealth units being able to "disappear"?! Are they playing DOW too much or something? That doesn't make sense, some models who have the stealth rule wouldn't have the ability to become completely invisible...
two starter sets, each with rules, dices, movement markers, mission booklet, one with Dark Angels and fitting scenery, the other with Black Legion and Chaos scenery. You can combine both to play the campaign or use one set alone to play a selection of dumbed down scenarios against every other force, first starter set that comes with a model for a well established special character
This also makes no sense, why would replace a system that has been in use since well, forever? 2 armies makes sense, because you can effectively play against yourself. Having one single army doesn't really give the beginner a lot of scope to play if I'm honest, because they'd be relying on getting to their local store/gw and playing. Meaning it would take longer to learn rules (better to learn with someone with you ie. Beginner days), meaning people get bored easier. I don't think this is really that valid...
strong narrative focus on Chaos, perspective shifting from the Empire to the struggle between free races and the Warp
Makes sense, these are "the end times" after all...
Yeah, I would like to see the game become more competitive and more tactics based (my podcast could do with that...). But, some of this stuff is complete bs.
Also, 3 years between editions? Really? That makes it the fastest edition change? Really?
