View Full Version : More a comment than a question, shooting at long range

Its clear in the current edition that thrown weapons suffer the long range penalty for shooting at over half range...do you guys believe that is intentional or an oversight? IMO it makes throwing axes MUCH weaker, and certainly doesn't help other thrown weapons, and really seems to hose them on a stand and shoot reaction, as almost always an opponent will be charging from farther away than half their range...meaning that they will never hit on better than a 6 during a stand and shoot...

They did increase the range of throwing spears a lot, seems intentional to lose the ability to ignore the long range penalty.

It does hurt throwing axes and thrown weapons but then they are usually a very cheap upgrade. Javelins certainly got a little boost in some respects which is nice.

It may be that they want to avoid the large number of "ignore this modifier" and "ignore that modifier" rules.
