  • Why is it that so many lists look like spamming a few different units? I mean, Eldar have such a huge pool of diversity that I never understood why someone would not want to make use of that.

    • ILikeToColourRed

      A) its easier to design a list with fewer moving parts
      – one unit type for one role kinda deal
      B) people tend to like specific units (probably A here)

    • Morgoth

      I often wonder the same. I understand that ITC players just take the 1-3 most point efficient units, but even a lot of ‘fun’ lists are close to spam there days.

      I’m actually driving myself crazy, I’ve build over 15 lists in the last 2 days, because I cannot choose which Eldar unit to include.. I want them all in my list! Most of my Eldar lists end up being ‘highlander’ lists with no unit twice in the list (not even a serpent). I guess I’ll end up having to make a choice within each category (Banshees vs Scorpions for example)

      • Because no one wants to take a “fun” list to the shop and have ITC guy teabag them, so they have to also bring an ITC level list.

        Tournament lists infect the casual scene and influence what a giant chunk of players buy, not just the tournament guys themselves.

    • Because thats how you play if you are “competitive” and it would seem the majority of players are “competitive”.

      • Why does spam of something a list competitive?

        • Because a competitive player is looking to take the strongest list possible. Which means looking at a list of units, identifying the most broken undercost ones, and then taking as many of those as they are allowed.

          • But I don’t see how 3×10 Guardians fits that idea. At all.

          • It doesn’t. Spamming the most cost efficient and powerful unit does.

          • Then why does one of these lists contain 3×10 Guardians?

  • Loken

    You know, her point could have come across a bit better if she included 40k cosplay instead of anime and the 101 Dalmatians lol.
