I think the reason that most of the people on the list don't like the new
game is because it's being hyped as becoming closer to 40k. A bunch of
people prefer epic to 40k for a lot of reasons, and bringing it closer to
40k is defeating the purpose. If you're going to do that, why not just
play 40k? Imagine if you were a rugby fan. You prefer rugby over american
football because it's rugby. It has a different flavor. Now imagine how
you'd feel if all of a sudden all the rugby leagues changed their rules
to make it more like american football.
That, and I think there are a bunch of people that are pissed because
they are changing the minis. I, for one, have a pretty large collection
of epic minis, including a scad of infantry, and now they'll be at a
disadvantage unless I buy all new infantry.
