I’m tired of being disappointed
Sadly, they used phrasing like "unbelievable" and "decades old plot points being tied up" in regards to the narrative - your position may need some additional fortifying...
I don't know - I'm trying to keep an open mind about it all - I know that what ends up being written has virtually no way of being as satisfying as almost thirty years of mystery and magic to me, but maybe once all of that has been moved past, we will get new stuff that is as interesting as the setting was back in the 2nd Edition Codex Imperialis.
One thing that it has reinforced for me is that if you have used any of the big names in 40K, whether they are locations, Chapters, Craftworlds, war bands, or anything else, be prepared to have "your guys" stories totally overwritten by GW
moving forward. If you don't want to follow the GW
meta-story, you better not be naming a 6th Company Captain of the Ultramarines, or a new Chapter Master of the Imperial Fists, or you can't be fighting on Armageddon, or you are seriously risking the need to accept that your stories are gone, or they are totally Alternate Universed from 40K, because unless you are a GW
developer, your stories will be run over by the meta-plot advancement.
Personally, I'll stick with my stories and keep nodding to the meta-plot as it conveniently passes me by and wave to all the development uninterestedly.
