The ETC thread got me thinking, some seems to react In a rather strong way against restrictions but Iīm sure thereīs another side of the spectrum to. My intention with this thread Is to see If you estemed members of "the Daemonic legion" have a simple yet good compsystem that you like and would like to share with me/us.

Ok Iīll start, I prefer to have some restrictions on powerdices and perhaps some restrictions of the nastier things In the rare sections.

It's funny but:
Since I belong so very, very clearly at one extreme of the spectrum I guess I belong in this thread about as much as I do in the ETC related one.. *lol*
I really don't like restrictions at all, and we use none of them in the games that my group plays. We do try the occassional houserule, home-made scenario, campaign, and so on - but it's not the same thing as restrictions.

I'm in the same boat as DR. When we play we don't use any comps/restrictions. We sort of police ourselves and generally keep things in the middle of the road. It may veer one way or the other based on who I'm playing.
DE player: Tends to be a bit more competitive so I'll build a little tougher list.
O&G player: Probably the most middle of the road lists.
Dwarf player: Usually doesn't try to hard when putting a list together so I can make softer lists.

we usually just use the restrictions that the next tournament is using.

Itīs absoloutly no point In using restrictions In a small gaming group. The reason why Iīm asking Is becaus we just had an ETC style single tournament and most people agree that Itīs not the most fun way to play the game, but most people around here still feals that thereīs need for a few restrictions. So I sort of am curious what other people do use, worth mentioning Is that we as players can have Influence on the tournament and the format that will be used.
We only have two big tournaments per year so...

Unless practicing for a tournament that uses restrictions (which is very rare) we don't usually bother. Generally we just police ourselves like Legion said and only break out the nastiest stuff when our opponents are semi-prepared for it.

I like the first two sections (magic and general) from this gt but the rest I don't care inch about (I disagree with the DL ones in particular limit siren song and maybe master of sorcery otherwise who cares)
As others note for friendlies we use no restrictions

This comp-list has been discused on DL earlier and been given little understanding internationally, but it is the mainly used list here in Sweden.
In friendly games aswell, because allmost all tournaments use it and it is easier to not change between several "armybuilding restrictons" from day-to-day, so to speak.http://swfbr.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=4449
Look in: Fantasy-Kompmallen v1.2 beta.pdf
I dont know if daemons are updated in the pdf, otherwise they can be found, along with all other armys here:http://swfbr.ipbhost.com/index.php?showforum=6
The forum is in swedish, but the comp-list is in english.
For myself, I dont like the comp system particularly, but I understand that it may fill its purpose on a national basis. Many swedes tend to travel all over the country to tournaments. Of-course exceptions from the list occurs on local tournaments, but the base is the same.

That's cool ola Lord Inquisitor at Warseer showed me that comp the other day when I (against better knowledge as always) took part in some deteriorating discussion on 'über spells' or something else like that.
As I told him also, I actually think that's one of the better comps I've seen in later years - in that it doesn't exactly 'restrict' you in terms of the hard choices you can make, but it just kind of gently tells you that You can bring the Cheese but you will get a slight handicap for doing it .
It's a lot like golf.
For the most part, not to 100% IMO but still for the most part, this means avoiding the smell of arbitrariness and pet-feud herd-raging that some of the more prominent comp-packs represents viewed through my stringly non-comp-filter. ;)
And here I was wondering whether 'ola' was a nod toward to the Swedish 'name' or the Spannish word for 'hello' - you kinda answered that too.

well, down here we have pretty mild comping, but we do have some for the tournaments. As for "friendly" games we often play uncomped.
Abdial - May 25, 2012 01:55 PM (GMT)
The only comps we play with is a max of 12 power dice per magic phase to prevent magic from getting out of hand. It rarely comes up though. We also play with less of the "magical" terrain. Not every forest in the warhammer world should have claws and fangs and be made of acid.

He he Abidail true that. I must admit that ETC line of sight was quite refreshing for a change and actually made the game run smoother so thats a plus. But a zillion restrictions Is just booring. My point iof view Is that a game Is just a game and you can do exactly what you want with It but changes have to aim to make the game more fun for as many as possible of the participtants. Much of the flak that Chaos Dwarfs got from some of the players was that the Tumurkan book Isnīt enough spread.
