When exactly was the mail sent again? I'm pretty sure it was either close to, or after CA was released. Since it's in print, the changes wouldn't have made it there. The feedback sent should then be used for this FAQ.
I agree with SyNidus simply because every single thread seems to surn into a whinefest, simply scaring potential GK brothers away, when there is no real need. To YOU, the army may very well be unusable, simply due to playing incredibly competitively, but to others, the army represents something more. If they're playing in a less competitive scene, GK do fine. There are still people that win games regularly, albeit not at WAAC levels. Is it a challenging army to play? Sure! Your anti tank is on the bigger fire magnets or in CC. Will you lose games? Sure? Is it less fun? If so, you're playing Warhammer for all the wrong reasons.
I think GK won't be overlooked. GW isn't stupid. They may not communicate everything they do, but I'm sure GK will get some changes. Probably not all of those on the wishlists, but they will be tuned slowly. Overtuning is also a bad thing
The problem with you making sweeping statements about me not finding the army usable because I play in a WAAC level is, you don't know me, you obviously haven't read any of my posts where I have explained that I DON'T WANT Grey Knights to be all-powerful and crush all before them.
I don't play in a hyper-competitive environment, I play with my mates. None of us use netlists, none of us are WAAC. But Grey Knights still can't compete in this casual environment because the Codex is soooo weak in comparison to every other Codex. I want the army that I play, that I've invested considerable money and time into, to be on a similar level to the others instead of the piss poor state it's in now.
Maybe try reading people's posts before you barrel in with your assumptions.
If you look through the forum, you'll find that at least 75% of the posts is about competitive GK. The fact that you're taking this personal is your issue, not mine. I did not make assumptions, I'm basing this simply on the amount of negativity in the forum, and the simple content of these aforementioned posts.
I'm not saying GK are competitive, yet I've done fine against a Tyranid player with a subobtimal list and done reasonably well against some Harlequins and T'au.
I haven't played them a ton, which is why I've refrained from doing a lot of feedback. I don't have a lot of time to play, and I also play Dark Angels, which was my first army, so I play them more often. I still enjoy Grey Knights, and sure, I've lost a two games, and all three of them were fairly close. Did my opponents make tactical mistakes? Yup. Did I? Pretty sure I did.
I'm sure that GK are not the best codex out there, So to counteract your last point, see my first sentence. I've read the forums and far to many posts ARE about competitive play. That your meta isn't ultra competitive, good for you, the world doesn't revolve around just you. I've read your posts, I've read a lot of them, and still, a ton of them are negative and whiny. The fact that a lot of people here seem to agree pretty much sums that up.
I will kindly request you not attack me personally, since it's uncalled for.
