Target locks are gone, apparantly. Anyone know why?
No, and to be honest it's pissing me off! Can somebody point out a way that this is not a blatant slap in the face to the Tau? Like the fact that Relentless already grants the split-fire ability, or that Jetpack does? Why take such a fundamental ability of the Tau battlesuits away from them? This makes no sense to me at all. Even if nobody else in the game can split fire with wargear, it's a shooting ability, and the Tau are (supposed to be) the shootingist army out there, so they should have a trick or two that nobody else can do.
Q. If a unit with advanced stabilisation systems also has marker drones, can the drones remain stationary to fire their markerlights while the battlesuits move using the advanced stabilisation systems? (p25)I haven't seen anything about this in the rumours pages, does this mean they're basing whether a model has moved or not on the individual model instead of te unit now?
I believe so. Cover saves are also based on individual model now, rather than by squad.
