Does fluff matter to you?

I'm asking this question because over the past few years I've been hearing more and more people talking about fluff. I've been around this game since the day's of RT and the fluff (and game) were very different then today. Most people didn't talk about fluff, well nothing like they do now.

As for me I do enjoy fluff but in my opinion it has no bearing on how the game is played so at the end of the day fluff is just some stories that take place in the 40k world. I'm not calling anyone out with this but i don't understand why people let the fluff decide the game for them. It's just going to change again.

As I said the fluff is very different now and it even contradicts it self, so again I ask does fluff matter to you?

I agree with you there, Red Orc. Some of the most fun I've had playing tabletop games was by playing in a campaign. Battle Reports tell the story.
Some armies are a lot easier to build without fluff than others. Chaos is pretty tough to build without fluff. Vanilla marines, IG, and Orks don't have much of a problem building armies just by picking stuff off the list.
Chaos undivided is easy to build without fluff. But 95% of the time, the chaos factions do not ally with each other unless it suits them. So it made no sense to have plague marines, Thousand Sons, Noise Marines, and World Eaters. They hate each other
