Wings of fire into 3d6 charge, forlorn fury, forward deployed scouts, Mephiston getting wings and quicken off are all easy round 1 charges for blood angels. Celestine can do it. Da Jump still works round 1. Eldar bikes charging after advance strat. Deamonettes on seekers just plain moving and charging. This list is by no means exhaustive.
Thanks. I'll freely admit that I'm not overly familiar with armies that aren't IG, SM, SW, Necrons, or T'au. As much as I'd like to, I don't play any other armies.
Non competative metas? Well I guess have a blast rolling dice and don't think about why games are won and lost? Im not sure. This is a game with a winner and looser, its a competition.
By non-competitive I did, in fact, simply mean "not tournament focused". Clearly you are heavily concerned with who wins and who loses. I don't care if I win or lose, as long as I have a good game. Many people here feel the same way. It's about playing the game to the best of your ability and getting better because you enjoy it. Otherwise why do anything? Why do I shoot if I'll never qualify for Camp Perry, why do I play golf if I'm not trying to win the Masters? Why do I play warhammer if I'm not trying to win the LVO? Simple answer: I enjoy it, and it's a chance to socialize with people who enjoy the same things I do.
Narrative play can teach the mechanics of the game but will give you few of the real lessons that make you better.
Clearly you've never played a Narrative Campaign. They can be quite fun. Even a bit competitive between factions.
I find the competition fun and that I learn most and have the most fun playing quality generals with powerful armies.
I think you're conflating competition, with challenge. You like the challenge of playing against difficult opponents. That's fine. Unless it's a tournament, no one cares how many games you win.
Discussion of tactics at all means the competition is real for the original poster. If your meta can not withstand a real tactical discussion without complaint of cheeese and try hard hate it may be necessary to have a soft version of your list ready at all times.
Discussion of tactics means the OP has hit a wall. He's asking for help in overcoming a challenge. You are the one making this about competition. Good tactics are not cheese, but spamming powerful units without any real tactics, is. Using what is available to your faction (or your collection) to its fullest effect is good tactics. No one in my meta has ever complained about my guard lists, even when I use my FW models, even when I take Unique characters, or even when I win.
Why do I get the distinct feeling that your idea of fun is winning at all costs?
