>Games Workshop undergoes large shakeup internally, new CEO wants to change things
>Biggest change comes by killing off Warhammer Fantasy. A vastly underperforming game that took up a lot of store space, was not getting significant growth with younger audiences and had exhausted its lore and mapped out its world after 30 odd years.
>Something had to change and reset the clock, they went with the End Times. Maybe not the best option but the one they went with. WHFB died and Age of Sigmar was born
>For a year shit was rough. 1st of AoS was a trashfire now considered a rushed out placeholder by many
>Multiple groups tried to create continuations of WHFB
>Some like Kings of War was the old greybeards digging their heels in to keep their joyful escape from the world consistent
>Some like the 9th age was bitter as fuck younger neckbeards angry at the world behaving not unlike star wars galaxies players after their mmo shutdown: every other game was FUKKIN SHIT and they were loud, annoying assholes
>Long and short of it is that skirmish is the new tabletop king and rank and file has no audience beyond its existing and naturally over the years shrinking one
>AoS gets its 2nd, and arguably first real edition and explodes in popularity, with single armies like Nighthaunts selling in a month more than the entire fantasy range did at its peak
>3 years on many accepted something needed to be done and love or hate aos it was clearly a good move for a business and remember the WHFB times fondly as days no long gone.
>But some remain monumentally buttmad years later claiming everyone not playing games like the 9th age are 'shills' out to sabotage it and making jackasses of themselves publicly and get banned from cons and tournaments.
Do you know anyone like that who has failed to move on?
