Changes to Turn Priority

Hi all

We have been advised of one of the changes coming to Age of Sigmar in 2nd Edition, and that is the turn priority.

Currently, when players roll off for priority at the start of each round, whoever won, got to choose who will go first. If the result was a draw, you would roll again until someone won. This left people at a huge risk of their opponent getting 2 turns in a row. For example 2nd in round 2 and 1st in round 3. 

To make this more balanced and less random, now if the result is a draw, the player who went 1st in the previous round would win.  

I really like this change, as it reduces the randomness in the current edition and forces players to rely on their actual skill. 

There will be some advantages of going second however with the introduction of Malign Sorcery. We will learn more about this in a future post. 

Let me know what you think of this change in the comments down below.  

Take care :-)

  1. I'm glad they didn't get rid of random turn order. I was worried they would. I know a lot of competitive players don't like random turn order, or random anything for that matter, but I think it make the game a lot more dynamic and nerve racking. It creates a much more exciting environment then knowing exactly how the game will play out before it even happens.
