40k conspiracy theory • a new world order
Hi folks !
This article is purely speculation. I love conspiracy theories and sometimes they turn out to be true... There's gold in them there hills son !! Heh. 6th edition is right around the corner and GW has finally figured out how to keep an airtight lid on their inner knowledge. I'm sure it must have been a brutal process and apprently it's working... all the moles have been sorted out. I'm not one to complain about the lack of pre-knowledge prior to the release of a new codex or edition. I think everyone who loves gaming in general gets a big thrill the first time they open a new codex and read it. No one knows exactly what is in store for us when the new 6th edition is released and to me that's very exciting. We are all in the same boat now. Many of us have read the pancake edition and it's been speculated that GW pre-released this for feedback from the community. It could certainly be true and it seems to me that GW has done much the same in the past. Based upon the feedback from our community for the most part the pancake leak was well received with open arms by most everyone. One of the rumors floating around now is that 6th edition will usher in a lot of change - according to this rumor 6th edition will not be a maintenance edition to 5th edition. If you really think about it not much time will have elapsed between the leaked pancake edition and the actual 6th edition... It's not like a corporate giant such as GW can make sweeping changes to 6th edition a few months prior to the release. So what if they developed two sets of rules in tandem? Anything is possible, right? Right. If indeed 6th edition is a lot like the pancake edition then all the rumormongers can say "I told you so!" and I'm cool with that as these types of things do happen from time to time. I think for the most part we are ready for a change up to the rules and to some degree it's going to happen. Alessio is no longer there and it just seems like Mr. Ward is the Man now. He is kind of a crazy one too - it is what it is as I like to say. Innovation is very important and he has that bit down.
So soon enough we will all see what it really is. Me, I'm very excited and can't wait.
