|No, seriously stop.|
First off, if you believe GK are the most overpowered book GW has put out in a decade you obviously aren't paying attention. Fantasy Daemons broke an entire game. They broke 7th edition, VCs get a 2nd place nod in that if it weren't for Daemons then Vampire Counts would have done it. Grey Knights did not break 40k 5th edition. Think they did? Then by all means plead your case in the comments; but be prepared to back it up because I am 100% certain that anything they did to 5th pales in comparison to what Daemons did to 7th ed Fantasy.
|I am being serious.|
Grey Knights are not unbeatable, they did not break an entire gaming system, they are not completely dominating every tournament, they do not take brand new players and let them just beat veteran players, there is no push button GK list either. So what is it you're whining about again? That Draigo lists are tough? That Purifier based lists using Crowe are tough? That Coteaz Henchmen lists are tough? That Psyfleman are good, that Razorbacks with psybolt are good, that Stormravens are good? What I think the problem people have with this codex isn't that it is too good, but that there are too many options. There are a myriad of builds that are good in the codex. Is it true you see a lot of Draigo lists? Yes, of course you do, the list is the cheapest one to build for 40k! It basically boils down to codex envy. People are hurt that their codices, SW excepted of course they are the exception to everything in the 40k metaverse, aren't filled with as many build options as the GK book. So maybe it is not that the GK codex is so insanely OP but that the other codices are too poorly written.
Wow, I haven't ever heard that complaint before on the internet. Poor codex design? No. That horse hasn't been beaten to death on every 40k forum and blog on the internet a 1000 times over. Just an observation to end this little rant of mine before the wave of hate and spite hit me. 40k internet trolls whine when a codex is too poorly written with out enough options or special rules and tricks that allow them to build and use multiple units from a codex, then turn around and bitch and complain even louder when GW puts out a codex that has a huge number, comparatively, of units that are good and worth taking in a myriad number of builds and unlock-able list designs. Just proves you can't make anyone on the internet happy. Ever.
Disclaimer to those of you who were at the BAO. I am in no way writing this in response to my 4th round opponent who politely conceded instead of playing against GK for a 3rd round in a row, after a terrible game the day before. If you're reading this, please know I understood your concession and have no problem with it or you as I expressed when we were hanging out after the match.
