I understand what your saying but recognize that someone need not stick their hand in a fire to know its hot. There are a lot of people with very real harsh feelings towards GW and these issues did not magically appear out of nowhere.

I am not saying your right or wrong with your statement but I am not surprised by peoples reaction to the new direction.

Your analogy is faulty. If we go by it none of us would have ever played the game. it is more like when Coke changed its flavor, some liked it some did not and stipped drinking it. then Coke changed it back, and people that stopped drinking it would not give it another chance ,because of course it must still suck. the point is with out trying it at least once you cant really have an honest opnion of the senario. when was the last time you saw me sticking up for something broken and unfair in this game? I have had nothing but fun in the Storm of Magic games I have played. they have been relaxing,yet hard fought fun. alot like fantasy was when I started playing, before I got into competitively playing tournaments.

As much as it pains me to admit it .. i agree with honorandglory ... storms actually fixes a lot of the retarded stuff with magic and does add a great level of fun and enjoyment .. plus a lot of back and forth in the games and a lot of tactical deployment issues... i really enjoy it.

Here you go again with your pissing. I don't have a "near god like ability" but I have watched a few games of SoM as well as discussed it with some people back home and here in the valley to determine if I really wanted to play it. And as it turns out, it's still unappealing. The game, from the opinions I hear, the things I've seen, and the stuff I have watched, makes the game a crap shoot of crazy OP shenanigans on both sides (which I'll admit makes the game actually, FINALLY, seem more balanced). My gamer IQ is high enough to know when a game looks like it won't be fun to me.

Now, I will say I can see the fun in it if that sort of play style appeals to your character. It does not for me. Fantasy still has a great theme and I love seeing fully painted armies on the field because it is a very epic looking game. But as far as playing it...I have better things to do with 2-3 hours.

I did happen to play SOM 2 times. for me it is alright but no where near the fun i was having playing pitch in last edition. magic right now in the game is just way out of control. Just look at SOM as another way GW is trying to make money off us like when they put out Stomes of chaos. same crap and issues with just some different wrapping papper and bow.

That is exactly what I am ''pissing'' about. You claim to have watched several games. You claim to have spoken to people all over the country, and somehow you feel this is enough to have a solid grasp on if something is broken and overpowered. Astounding. Maybe you should go to work for GW and fix everything for them with your amazing gaming prowess. For all you other non omnipotent gamers, all I am saying is give it a fair shake before you give up on it. it may just suprise you ans supply you with a couple of hours of fun with your friends.

Most of the broken stuff in Fantasy is the synergy of old books with the new rules ... and frankly most of that is mitigated .. perfect example of how magic is NOT broken. LAst weekend DWARVES conquer all mercislessly crushing all opposition and going 3 and 0 in the tournament of storms of magic. So i think in my opinion the game is as balanced as a game can get at this point barring a few special characters and that stupid hydra and abomination. And overall with the new scenarios we have been running im having a really fun time playing .... and id bet Chris if you played me a game youd have fun playing. Just my 2 cents.
What really fixes things is taking away the aspect of .. IM GONNA CRUSH YOUR FACE IN part of the game where VPs are the only thing ... now its about objectives and strategy and CRUSHING YOUR OPPONENTS FACE IN :)
