>> No.54802545

>>54801973
Yes.
Tge main plot us that the Death Guard (Chaos Space Marine who follow Nurgle) are leading an attack to the Konor sector, which is vital to make invasions to Ultramar (home of the Ultramarines and one of few places in the Imperium where life does not suck) easier and (literally) shit on Guilliman's return.
Chaos players fight Imperium players to decide what happens to each planet which is decided with victory pointd, and xenos player can fight one of the other two to steal their points. (And it seems most xeno players sided with the Imperium)

I never got this part, desu.
I mean, the Imperium's officially in a frenemy(?) alliance with the Ynnari Eldar faction, having their points not go directly to the Imperium doesn't make much sense.

Everyone else (especially Orks)? Yeah, pick and choose which side loses points. But giving the Eldar the ability to take away points from the Imperium doesn't make a lot of sense lore-wise.

Well if you listen to /tg/ they mostly sided with the Imperium because nobody likes Chaos players, and Chaos gets treated as the ultimate doomsday now so I guess dealing with Imperial jerks is better than getting End Times'ed.

Do Imperium vs. Imperium games count as wins for the Imperium?

If a Xenos player declares they will fight for the Imperium, and then plays against the Imperium, does it count as a win for the Imperium?

I'm asking these dumb questions, because Imperium players make up the bulk of the player base, and I'd imagine they'd have a hard time finding games against "actual enemies".

>> No.54807995

>>54807789
Yes and yes.
Welcome to the reason why Impy's are more or less guaranteed to win.
Space Marines can fight each other in glorified masturbatory war-games yet still contribute to the war effort.
GW should really have set a "If both players factions are the same, roll off to see who represents Chaos or vice versa" rule.
Sure it wouldn't stop anyone who actually wanted to skew local results but at least it's a definite "stop cheating you shitheads" instead of the wishy washy policy we have now.
Or hell at the very least go through the effort to list which side every race in the game is fighting for so that actual faction lines are drawn.

>> No.54808762

^ I thought as much.

An easier solution would be to count defeats rather than victories. If Imperium vs. Imperium leads to an Imperium defeat (which it would, obviously), then Chaos gets +1.

But, I know how Chaos can win now. They need to play more games than the sum of all Imperium games combined.

So, have Chaos vs. Chaos games, and one player concede after turn one. Build all Flyers lists (and with the new Boots on the Ground rule), lose at the start of each game. Then have a rematch. Etc.

Yeah, I'm hoping for that as well. If GW does one thing right in the future, it'll be to hire some people who aren't obsessed with Chaos as 'muh big bad' and actually make the other factions in the setting have some time in the sun while Chaos fucks off back to the Warp and stays there for a good couple years.

>> No.54810702

Chaos has had too much time in the sun? I think you mean "Imperium".

Chaos is the Saturday morning cartoon villain of the setting - losing each and every week, only to say "I'll get you next time! Neeeext tiiiiiime!" and coming back.

With something like 60% of the player base playing "good guy" Spaaaace Mehreens, I'm hoping for a Horus Heresy like outcome, where the goodie goodie chapters turn on each other. Blood Angels fall to Khorne. Space Wolves fall to Tzeentch (just as planned).

Then the xenos (Necron and Tyrinids) gain ground. Tyranids eat the galaxy. Necrons get all spooky.

Eldar get tricked. The Yncarne is Slaanesh. All the Macha "we're the true good guys" fanboy players become butt hurt. This pleases Slaanesh.

Orcs kill lots of guardsmen. They emerge as a not-the pawn-of-chaos faction.

Mate, if they can't successfully devoured an Ork empire like Octarius after 100 years of fighting over it, there's no way in hell they'd be able to eat the galaxy. The Orks are (for lack of a better term), the galaxy's extremely violent immune system, and they're everywhere.

Imperium is the default and Chaos is the irritating pet faction of Black Library writers. Frankly I'd prefer they both were sent to the back burner for awhile and Xenos vs Xenos got an actual starter box for once. Hell, a Xenos vs Xenos campaign where Chaos and Imperium have to do the same thing Xenos do now would be even better.

I was referring more to the fact that Swarmy & what's left of Hive Fleet Leviathan have been trying to devour the planet of Octaria/Octarius since before the Great Rift open and still haven't pulled it off.

The average rate of a Nid fleet devouring a planet is 50-100 days, and that's with resistance.

They've been trying (and failing) to nom Octarius for at least a century. Even if Thraka's there leading the Orks, you'd think that Hive Fleet would've gotten somewhere on eating the planet in the last 100-112 years...

Given how many Orks even outside Octarius this big fight attracted, combined Tyranid and Ork biomass on the planet would double its weight.
>and that's with resistance
PDF is no resistance against Fleet and Tyranids prepate the planet for consumption as the fight goes on. Plants grow faster, bugs looks for suitable traits in the local organisms, etc. They don't start the process after the fight is over.
>Even if Thraka's there leading the Orks, you'd think that Hive Fleet would've gotten somewhere on eating the planet in the last 100-112 years...
If Orks can fight Tyranids it means they have genes worth consuming. If Orks don't win it means Tyranids can acquire them. Hive Mind is a simple entity. It sees genes, it eats.

Yeah, and then Ghaz showed up, killed a Malwoc, and rallied all the Orks on Octarius (the planet) to literally kill every single bug on the planet at the time.

Leviathan's response? Send a couple more tendrils at the now heavily fortified, cutting-edge tech Ork opposition. All before the Great Rift opened mind you.

Which means Swarmy and Ghaz's forces have been fighting for the last century in the galaxy's biggest meatgrinder-murderfest (there was a brief moment where the Blood Crusade decided to jump in the middle and fight both... it didn't end well for the Khornates involved). Not that Gork and Mork really mind the idea of having bugs to squash for the last hundred years. Gives da boyz a fun (and challenging) enemy to punch around.

I don't want a story. A story requires a clear endgame with central characters and climactic events, which 40k lacks. Although I do admit, if 40k were a story, Chaos would never be the protagonist anyways.

The Imperium is the protagonist faction. Chaos is the main antagonist faction. Everyone in 40K are different kinds of evil, the less evil factions would be the Imperium, the Eldar and the Tau.

Okay so here's the thing.
The new generation of writers (i.e 2011ish onwards) like chaos.
But the marketing department (and in turn the modeling budget) likes money.
And marines are money.
If you keep all of these things in mind a lot more of geedubs decisions make more sense.

The problem with all of this Progress™ is that a lot of it is thematically blind with primarchs and chaos just sticking their dicks into everything because primarchs and their new marines make money while the writers love them chaosboys.

Take the devastation of Baal for example.
This giant god damn conflict has been hyped up since forever and no one actually thought that the blood angels would be wiped out, but the war itself was going to be a grand affair with the entirety of the BA's coming together (including freaking renegade chapters) to defend their home.
It was going to be another Macragge level event with the Imperium barely winning by the skin of their teeth and through the countless sacrifice of heroes and heroic actions against a terrible yet worthy enemy.

But how does it resolve with the coming of 8th?
Half of Leviathan just fucking disappears because Chaos™ while Gullyman flies in with his mega marines to save the day, simultaneously annoying both BA and Nid fans.
Like it's not even a criticism of the quality of writing but instead of thematic stupidity.
And now apparently Angron is rumored to be getting involved/stealing the spotlight on Armageddon, one of the like two actually important Ork warzones and it's just getting really tiring having Chaos involved in fucking everything.
Especially after Endtimes.

That I understand, but there is very little in the way of In-Universe justification for most Xenos to side with Chaos. The Tau Ethereals and the Farsight Enclaves both don't want Chaos to win and know that they can't be reasoned with, Eldar and DEldar boy REALLY don't want Chaos win, most Necrons don't want to destroy the universe, and those that do certainly don't want it at the price of everything becoming the Warp, Tyranids don't want Chaos to win because a Galaxy full of Warp tastes like shit and is terrible to digest. The only ones would have a reasonable justification to side with Chaos would be Orkz, and even then, it would be more likely for them to just fight everyone regardless of alignment because it's more fun that way. Why would they expect people to side with one of the most unfriendly, antagonistic, factions in the setting?

It's not really exact stats so much as it is an approximation, but it conveys the general impression. Every region for both the previous weeks has been an Imperial victory, although the UK branch Chaos does seem to be putting up somewhat more of a fight. At the time of this post, Week three also looks to be in the Imperium's favor, especially with Chaos getting curb stomped in the EU.

I guess they were betting on xenos being more pissed at the Imperium for getting all this cool Primaris shit and such while getting left out in the cold again.

I guess the fluff morons forgot about how much they've been shoving Chaos as 'the only threat that matters' for the last 6 years and how they were "always the main threat" (as someone who owns a copy of the Fear the Alien anthology, such nonsense really ticks me off, since 40k is supposed to be Imperium vs. all equally dangerous to humanity, not this 'Imperium vs. Chaos and everyone else is just a third wheel'bullshit) down everyone's throats, which has been rubbing a lot of xenos players the wrong way.

Imperium (presumably Marines, but almost any Imperium faction besides GK could work) vs Xenos.
Orks make great bad guys. They're ugly, they're green, they're savages, and they'll as soon krump you as look at you.
Tyranids? Great bad guys. Just ask Heinlein, Geiger, or Orson Scott Card.
Dark Eldar? Good, but perhaps not kid friendly.

I don't understand this at all. I just recently got back into the game and am pretty shocked by this. Back when I was a kid and would play the store managers wouldn't let people play if their models' bases weren't done. Now I'm setting up my army that I spent hours on and making sure they look nice to only play against either primed or unthinned painted models.

Yeah, I guess. Prices are really holding this game back from being more widely popular. I mean, thanks to DoW series and BL books, wh40k is much more well known world-wide than, say, 15 years ago.

I doubt they deemed skulls of lesser orks/tyranids worthy of their god`s attention, so 8000+ giant skulls belonged to greatest examples of each respective species, it wasn`t 8000 total kills. Ghazghkull though must be approaching the Beast power-levels.

Let's give the World Eaters some credit.

Last time they went to Octarius it was with ol' Kharn the Betrayer and the entire fucking Blood Crusade, and that got stopped cold because it got caught in the middle of Ghaz's WAAAAGH!!in' boyz and Swarmlord's Nids and got stopped cold.

The fact the World Eaters went BACK to Octarius after they got out of that meatgrinder (and since they're the only real major faction there, they probably took the least losses getting out) and spent a year collecting skulls is ballsy to say the least.

It also makes me question if they aren't actually secretly the sons of Perturabo instead of Angron. Only Perty would want his troops to go BACK to the galaxy's deadliest warzone.

Xenosfag with an anti-Chaos bent here:
Is your store losing every time, or is this globally?

'cause Konor went Chaos for a bit over in my Imperium/Xenos dominated store because some of the Ork players went on a painting spree and took a lot of points away from the Imperium for a bit, only for a bunch of Imperial players to paint their models and submit them in at the very last second, shifting Konor back in the Imperium's favor.
