Where are the rules changes?

PostSat Aug 05, 2017 5:57 pm

Okay, so I already found them myself, but they are quite well hidden on the Hawk website.

Putting rules changes, massive ones at that, under 'Events' is a tad counter-intuitive. Maybe it would be better to put them with the Errata & FAQs?

If I hadn't found out about the changes from a video about the new tournament set, I wouldn't have known where to look at all, and even so it took me a while until I figured out the latest errata isn't, in fact, the latest errata.

Having 3 sets of rules changes isn't brilliant and there have been several calls to consolidate them to no effect.
I suspect it will fall to one or other of us punters to actually put all of this into a single document...

Certainly not ideal, no, but it's a product of their being a small company. I imagine writing, model design and production, and events take most of Hawk's time. For better or worse, the web presence ends up being neglected.

Hoping the link works; this was put together by Gavri3l, and posted to our local group.

I suspect he's also referenced other clarifications by Dave relayed by others, but will need to check on that.

That document only includes officially published changes and clarifications. I've not added any of the answers from Cry of the Wind's thread on the rules query forum.

I did edit the erratas to all follow the same sentence structure though, which I think helps make some of the changes clearer.

We hope to upload a new combined document sometime next week. This will include ALL Dropfleet Commander Errata and FAQ and possibly some new changes!

Indeed. I think I might delay on building a few cruisers...

Hopefully the PHR Perseus getting Linked-1 on all broadside guns is one of them.

Theseus could need this as well... But there are more important things to fix I think :D
