Some news to me mentioned so far:

All moves in turn reversible until first dice roll (moves between dice reversible? Not sure. He says this is same mechanic as Age of Sigmar and other curretn GW games)

Max Strength 8 - was it theoretically 9 before with +2 Loon?

Exhibition match 115 - 130 k

Prayers to Nuffle - this was complicated

Stalling - if clear run to TD but don't score, 'gets risky' but doesn't elaborate

Team tiers - now formalisedm, with some difference in apos, regen. Nobles & Black Orcs both T2

I watched his "Let's Play" video for the Season 2:

I stopped watching after he moved the Thrower to pick up and then declared he was passing... I have watched this guy play a lot of different games, including Gaslands (car combat game) where he interprets rules differently on his turn compared to his opponents... Nice guy, fun videos but I have zero faith in his technical accuracy.

This guy is far from a reliable source for any game imo. I agree with Dalfort.
Posted by Rags on 2020-11-20 15:06:28
OK thanks I haven't watched him before. Was good to get a detailed look agt new rulebook.

Woth the throw move I guess with the new flexibility about do overs as long as no dice rolls that would mean it's OK? Technically would need to reset and redeclare, but in practice would be the same

re "reversible" moves etc thats how it always has been in tt no?
equally if you havent rolled any dice in a move with a thrower who is moving to pick the ball up if my oppo said oh this is a pass (as long as he hasnt rolled any dice for dodge, stupid etc) its a non issue in reality

I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes or so as it was really just him reading stuff as he flips through the book front to back. I did cue it up to see him looking at the skill section to which he just said something along the lines of "Here's all the skills!" Not exactly looking at the rules with a critical mind. :)

That being said, I liked his enthusiasm about the new box set being an inclusive experience compared to BB2016 that was parceled out in bits and how the box set might grab someone new to BB's imagination.

Totally agree that is how it is played in TT environment but it's not the "rule" more of a gentlemanly agreement and as this was a review of the game I personally would have preferred it to be an accurate portrayal rather than the lackadaisical commentary of his rummage through the box/rulebook.

That said, I have not played the Cyanide game enough to know if a Pass action can be added mid-way through a move or not (in a similar fashion to how the old Skijunkie client allowed it).

Not looking to fall out with anyone, it was just my view of his content. I repeat though he seems a nice guy, produces fun video's but his technical accuracy leaves a lot to be desired.

I read this after I posted, seems I hastily answered and that the new rules actually cover it then... wish my copy of the rules would hurry up and arrive :P

Being able to cancel mis-clicks on such as move instead of handoff would be great.
Posted by ClayInfinity on 2020-11-22 10:23:37
I liked how he had a long pregnant pause when he described Wildly Inaccurate as being on a 1 and then read the rule on Fumble also being on a 1... then he stopped, stared at the rule and sighed... just like we all are!

Thanks Dalfort, I'm not falling out with anyone either! I just shared the link because it offered a better look at the new rulebook and box contents than what I'd seen elsewhere.

As Gary says, the reversing moves feature would allow a do over on some misclicks. I often misclick away my blitz :(

Maybe quoting the guy directly in title wasn't great idea. Like Rbthma, more impressed by his enthusiasm than his expertise, but agree his point on having entire ruleset in single volume is step forward.
