In case everyone missed it, the Adepticon staff have updated their rules for events, and more important to me, their 40k rules.
It seems that the Adepticon staff have taken the difficult decision to do the following in a very brief summary:
no dataslates, no formations, no escalation, limited use of stronghold
(following the rules for the models but w/ caveats and restrictions), no core game changes such as those proposed by FoB or the LVO.
I applaud them for these decisions. With the internet in turmoil over escalation and stronhold, it looks like they have decided to play it safe, not let in game busting elements as much as possible. No doubt they will be savaged by people for their decisions, but I think its the right call.
Well done Adepticon, I strongly look forward to attending in a few short months.
