This week’s poll is concerning Apocalypse and it’s acceptance (or lack thereof) amongst the 40k community. I’ve managed to play three games of 40k this year since my son was born, and each of those games happened to be an Apoc game.
I would’ve said that was by coincidence, but when I think about it, it’s most likely not. The anticipation of an upcoming Apoc game far surpasses that of a standard game to me. I’m sure this is because they happen less frequently overall, have so many cool models that you otherwise never get to see, and just have an epic scale about them. So, while I find it hard to make time for a standard 40k game, I seem to always make room for Apoc.
Some gamers in the community, however, look upon the game with disdain. Whether it’s because of the inherent imbalance, the insanity of long games or too many players in general, each has a reason why they might not enjoy the games so much.
This week’s question tries to dig into your psyche a little bit to find out whether you love or hate Apoc. Please choose the appropriate answer to the quiz. Additionally, if you have a reason or thought behind why you love/hate the format, please share.
