I hope this some kind of sick joke. How many "rare and expensive" vortex
misiles are going to be on every titan? Guess they'll change the history
again. The ranges for the titans are meager, does this mean that they are
returning to the old days of 40K inches = epic cms? So they have changed the
amount of weapons available down to 6? And the warhounds are fixed weapons?
Oh boy I hope this is wrong. They've gone from being able to custom build
your titan to having a much smaller range of choices. I take it they will be
converting all the available weapons to within the categories above. (Fire
control Towers gone?) Oh boy, lots of options now. I think they could more
easilly made a costing into what each weapon is worth rather then just
blending them into a few choices.

I hope this is not the shape of things to come.
