    Default points or power

    just getting back into 40k, after spending time playing AOS, and just seeing which version of army choosing people prefer - points or power ratings

    Surprisingly, given I normally move in quite competitive circles 40k wise, is that I see quite a lot of people liking power levels (which I personally have not used). It is apparently a lot easier to tot an army up.

    I don't know what PLs should equte to what points in terms of gaming - ie 2k points = 3hr game - don't know the same for PL.

    I do know that use of PL depends on you not being 'that guy' who takes the most amounts of the most expensive upgrades.

    I prefer points, but I think that's because that's what I've always played.

    Having faced a lot of min/max players in all sorts of games, point values seem to be the most accurate mode to play and keeps those kind of players from taking advantage of the system by holding them to a standard format of play.

    Assume approximately: Power Level = (Points divided by 20) Approximately.

    so under the assumption that 2k points is a 3hr game, 100power level is also approximately 3hrs long.

    I have adjusted my spread sheet to calculate both points and power rating when I build an army. So when I turned up for my first game under the new Ed, I was able to play a dude that had only calculated his force to power rating.

    Power levels for anything other than min/max tournament play.
