Yeah i remember that, but they also had the phase out rules to balance them out somewhat.It's always been the way. My 3rd ed Necrons annihilated absolutely everything because they were new and they always make new units OP to drive sales then nerf them later whilst introducing new OP units. In 3rd ed you could march across the board with squads of basic warriors mowing down everything and the basic light vehicles of the necrons could 1 shot a Land Raider Crusader.
Now no such balancing exists. its "buy the latest model, or lose all your games" the Tau riptide is also so completely overpowered and broken, you see two of those in your enemies lineup, and you can happily just pack up and declare he won. because there is nothing you can do about them, and they will kill 20-30 models each per turn hits on a 2, wounds on a 2, re roll 1s, no coversaves or armour saves allowed. no line of sight required., and are cheaper than a landraider. its just bullshit how badly they broke the game
