From just having read the whole typo thing on teclis thread and how some people will,knowing that its not meant that way, do a ruling just to get a advantage, i wanted to do a post of some of the more un-spirited thing to do in warhammer.
Now, some things i dont take hard, like deploying a monster/chariot sideways to get some extra inches on the free reform. Now thats not my kind of gamestyle but i dont really care if people do it since it such a small advantage.
Having had played some tourneys, ive had come around, not the regular cheats like measuring that unit is 8 inches away and both agreeing to being somehow 9 inches next turn, to some strange and almost cheat rulings.
It has also teached me that the staff att GW stores dont know **** when it comes to rules .
The two biggest was when a GW staff did a ruling against me that my bsb with other trickster shard only makes 3 of his Phoneix Guards to reroll saves, ohwell.
The biggest was when a guy whined on me when i had seerstaph of saphery and rolling banishment with my archmage, GW staff gets called and says i cant have the same spell twice. I couldent find it, found the rule in the book when i went home, and he keept nagging me so i dropped it.
Though this is not such a cheat like enforcing a typo, more to the know-nothing GW local staff, but how common is this kind of play? and whats the worst you have seen?. Sometimes i just whant to play with my playgroup in case i meet up with one of thoose aggresive players and it dosent become such fun again.
