The effect of this could be that eventually to be a NAF-sanctioned tournament these races would need to be allowed to be included, although as with the BB2016 rules a period of flexibility will be available, and they are likely to be optional for a good amount of time, but will be able to be added to the database.
The vote will be non-binding, but will hopefully (if enough people vote) give an idea on whether this is something that the membership wants.
- Khorne were in Cyanide’s BB1, but have not yet appeared in BB2. Bretonnians are in Cyanide’s BB2. The stats for both races can be found here.
- From the statistics within these two games (thanks to dode for these) the win % is around 45% for both teams (where a draw counts as half a win, same as for BBRC). This puts them lower Tier 1, so around the same strength as Humans or High Elves. The restriction on the Bret data is that only some of the teams have been available as opposition, but it is the best available.
- Khorne and Brets have both been used in NAF tournaments (with their games not being recorded in the database) but we have not been able to get enough data to draw any conclusions, so presenting any data would be misleading. Do feel free to tell your anecdotal stories on the forum, however.
There has been vigorous discussion on the NAF forum so far, and you are encouraged to have a read and join in before casting your vote!
You will be able to say whether you want Khorne, Brets, both, or neither added to the database.
It is worth noting that the NAF committee is neutral on this – it is something that various people have been asking for over a number of years, and it is only now that the work has been done on the database to make it possible. This is the cause of the timing, which might seem strange otherwise with the release of BB2016.
