So I walk into the game store, and I overhear something I've been hearing alot lately.

"Apocolypse is for fun, just talk to your opponent and it should be ok."

Great... but heres the kicker to me, When did standard 40k become not for fun? Right on page 5 it lists the golden rule, yet Im always hearing fights over raw vs rai, Can I take this, can I do this... Fluff vs tactics, etc.

When did tourney think start to dominate how we play? Ive played for close to 18 years and for the life of me I cant see when the change happened. Was it that incremental a thing?

More importantly, why have we let this happen?
