Nid codex, new or old for playoffsÉ

Post  System Commander on Wed Jan 27, 2010 12:12 am

Alrighty, jsut as the subject line indicates, do you think we should use the old or new codex for the palyoffs. I can valid points for both sides, but Im mainly looking at Rhett, Jesse and Randy here. My belief is to use the new book, although I have njot read the new book, and actually know very little about it besdies the basics. I do know the format has changed and alot of cool units would have to be picked up, and it is pretty early for that.

So, you guys weigh in. If at least two of youguys would like to keep the old codex for the playoffs, I have no problems with it.

The new Tyranid codex is competitive against mech. The old one was not. The old one only really had one build to it (nidzilla). The new one... many are valid (warrior heavy, stealer shock [kinda], pod, shooty nidzilla, CC nidzilla, and all of the many variations upon those themes that can exist)

The new codex is so vastly different from the old one that I think it's playing a whole different army from some standpoints. Yes you can "port" your old lists to the new codex but they aren't going to do too well. The league doesn't like people switching armies between their points (silly imho), and I view this as doing exactly such.



I think the old codex should be used for consistency. If they were able to make it this far already, they're clearly not suffering from the issues the last codex had and should do fine against their opponents. The new codex will, for lack of better wording, give them "unfair advantages" as most people don't even know what the new codex sprouts nor do they have the practice against some of the shiny new toys the codex has.

if i can have the game next week i should be able to get a few games in and have an idea of a list. I admit I'm still kinda overwhelmed by the changes (seriously 34 units to the old 15) but the fact that the lists are now going to be extremely different is going to be fun.
