Ok, well i've read a lot on this Forum as well as others about the change back to 20-10-0 for this years UKGT. I think a lot of the comments have been just bitchy, and unstructured. Now i hate to sound sensible, but perhaps if people could put forward ideas that were constructive then that would be better.

Ok so if it was up to us, what would we change? You never know, we might even be able to write a draft/report with idea's in it to present to Brian Aderson for next year. Now im not saying that he'll listen, but surely that would be better than just sitting in the background bitching.

Ok so i think one of the main subjects will be the points system. Now i agree that 20-10-0 isn't the greatest, but i also think that the 3-1-0 has a few problems. IMO it promotes pop up armies that hid for 6 turns and then jump out and kill just enough to win. But it does give other less "competitive" armies a chance to do well. Spiky Dave got one of the biggest cheers that i have heard at a GT coz he did so well with ork's! Great, thats what i want. I don't want to put a chao's player and automatically take it for granted that it's an IW player!

My addition to the debate is up gunning the points values. Bugger 1500, lets play 2000pts. If this was to happen it would IMHO (for the most part) force people to fill out their troops sections and not just the elites, fast and heavy.

Ok so over to you guy's, idea's please!

Well that actually wouldn't be a bad idea! (not trying to sound too surprised). So just the VP scored instead of the difference! Well that might work. It might however play even more into IW hands!

The reason i suggested uping the points limit was because most of what would be considered beardy list's, have aready used up most of the more powerfull slots!

I would also like to see an expansion of what lists are allowed! Allow Speed Freeks, allow LAtD, allow 13th company. I don't care if there "expansion" lists! GW made them, and there no bloody worse than the normal shite that ends up at tournaments!

Ok, so more idea's! Less people viewing and more people posting!

Ok so maybe 2000pts isn't the answer, but remember the title of the thread. I'm looking for ideas from the UKGT players not just them to post to tell me my ideas are rubbish (lol). I want this to be taken seriously. This might make the event better for all, so again less viewing more idea's posting, cheers!

But they have different points levels for each tournament, surly if the games are different then the systems can be too. Or is this a case of getting one big brush for the whole thing? Perhaps they are over simplifing the whole thing?

But what im saying Dan, is why can't they have a different system for 40k as they do for fantasy? The 3-1-0 is rubbish in warhammer, but the general concencious is that people would prefer the 3-1-0 for 40k!

Apart from the things that are different! lol

It might have a lot of negatives, but sadly they might pick it simplicity. I think they want both the system for fantasy and 40k to be the same! So the 3-1-0 system completely buggers fantasy so, they'll change it for 40k too! I don't want to imply laziness but it looks like they want to tar everything with the same brush!

A sensible person would realise that fantasy and 40k are different games so can have different scoring systems!
