    Be a bit careful with extrapolating from really low cost units like Muttas, funky stuff happens with prices. We've seen in Starmada that Boarding Shotguns seem to be equally expensive to a Combi. This might, however, signal that Chain Rifles have gone up in price. We'll see, but there is some risk that Devil Dogs go up in price as a combo of Shotguns getting more expensive, Chains possibly the same, and Extreme Impetuous going away and potentially lowering discounts.

    Damn bro, you didn't have to do me like that. Well I can only hope DDs get grenades back and I guess I'm not upset at X Impetuous going since cover really enhances a units survivability. But Mutts are still so cheap. I'm really concerned that either armies will be forced to break into 2 combat groups or it will be hard for other to break out of 1.

    Also, Bostria in the video today was talking about Tac Window in such a way that seemed to imply flexibility with it. I don't want to assume incorrectly that you could just have 1 combat group of 15 troops in Tac Window(whatever that means). Does anyone know more about Tac Window...

    Max 15 troopers, but you're not fixed into the 10/5 split for order groups, you can do 6/9 or 7/8.

    Exactly, max is 10, but there's no compulsion to take a full group of 10 before you start the second group.

    Last I remember there wasn't a compulsion before as well.

    True, I think there's was some confusion after the graphic had a 10/5 split.

    Muttas are still cheap, yeah, but their utility has been nuked. We'll see how that acts in the long run, and we'll see if it also heralds a nerf to other 5pts warbands as well...

    Well, it feels to me like they're going along the Jaguar pattern. And yes, I am very curious about other typical Warbands.
    I guess they might follow this pattern, too.

    But, well, we'll see - in 3 weeks or so :)

    Bostria also said that you can go with three groups or more (5/5/5, ect...)

    I too believe the confusion stems both from the N3 rules and the sample image

    Yet, given that you can have several groups, and that we don't know the N4 rules, do we have any inkling that the group cap at 10 will remain? If it is "the way you wanted", doesn't that imply can you can have a group of 15?

    What would be the point on having more than 1 group if you could get all 15 toons in the same group?

    Combat Group sizes haven’t changed. See CodeOne, which it’s built-in single Combat Group limit.

    I'm hoping there will a change to monks and get rid of the combi rifle versions no one ever takes. I'd love for them to get "less lethal" weapons like E/Marat, riot stopper, etc.

    NuShotguns might be alright though.

    Yes but not sure I want them "incentivising" shotguns but giving only them smoke. Be careful what you wish for right? lol
