Put me down as a Nay, and a long time sister player.
I'm not willing to judge this until I have used it at least 3 times to make sure it does fail or I just fail as a commander, I will even try the list MCC posted a few pages back but add 2 more troops to make its 1750ish, though I will use my repentia as DCA as I'm not going to buy more of those.

The BA dex was fail just like this one appears to be however I'm starting to think the mass disappointment is more as a result of the time it has taken to get even this, as well as how good the last few codes releases have been have set the expectation bar far higher compared to when the BA, WD release came out.

This game has always been more about the hobby than the winning for me. Doesn't matter how much the Nid codex apparently sucks, I love gribblies with big teeth and claws. Doesn't matter that this update is widely considered to suck, I love the Sisters models and look/feel of the army. I don't collect armies because their rules are good. I collect because I like the army
I'm in that same boat there

Well more or less your opinions on the ruleset are pretty moot. You'd stomach any and anything just to play your sisters because, as you said, you just like the models. I'd like to say this but I also see 40k as a game (because it is). It is both a hobby and a game. Thus, as a game, I prefer to not gimp myself for the sake of liking something and to this degree I'd like to play my sisters...but I also don't want to play my sisters. Rules-wise there is nothing spectacular about it. I personally feel the new faith, as a mechanic, really strips out the heart of the "feel". Its boring and fairly unoriginal and leaves faith powers in the seat of "oh they felt better so they did it" rather than actual forces of change.
They might stay as an "unserious" army but be shelved at the point when any real competition comes around.

I hate to add to the already grim atmosphere, but does this mean that the SoB Rumours Roundup is going to be removed? I mean, the codex is out already for some, and soon for the rest.

We could probably move this to General Discussions and change this to "Codex: Sisters of Battle Support Group".

But what about living in denial about this update and collecting the next codex's rumors? :p

And I quote from Cruddace's win in the WD matchup against Nids:

"Thanks to their faith in the Emperor, and some very jammy dice rolls, the Sisters of Battle have salvaged a little pride for me after having lost to Jeremy earlier on with my Tomb Kings. However, it was by no means a certain victory."

Wow, so I guess if I want to ensure future wins with the new codex, I'd have to acquire some of the aforementioned jammy rolls.

Christ, I don't think he even knows how to use the army.

Wait....you want the codex's author to actually know how to use the army?

I'm just kidding of course. I know that he didn't understand the army well based on how he wrote the codex.

Oh whats more hilarious...in the battle report his dominions have 4 flamers (with 5 models)...that later are turned into meltas....then later into heavy flamers. *cough* I sure hope my copy of the WD allows for dominions to do this too.
