I preordered it but ended up cancelling. Been watching game play and it just didn’t look...engaging. Models are pretty but I’m disappointed with the route they decided to go for with it.AoS was also designed to reduce the SKU bloat and reinforce some copyright issues.
I'm still on the shelf with Warcry, it looks cool enough as a game and the models are lovely, but I'm really just not that sure I personally actually want to play it !
Speaking as an initial wailer-and-teeth-gnasher, while I'm still not a player (frankly, I barely get any actual games in of the things I actually do play these days), I have to commend GW's commitment to making AoS a quality product despite its condition at launch - it didn't just reject all the criticism as just sour grapes over the loss of WHFB, even though there was definitely a decent amount of that (including from me); they took the criticism that the rules it had on release were essentially unfinished, and decided to fix the issues that had arisen from the bad movement rules and the nonexistent game balance to produce a significantly improved game.Hence the inevitable reboot and much wailing and gnashing of teeth, oh it seems such a long while ago now..
