If the new death from the skies stuff hits before the cut off date, will that be in effect (particularly the new dog fighting phase etc)

I will make a decision on it once I'm able to get my hands on the rules to make sure that nothing is in breach of the ITC format/FAQ.

Given it adds an entire new phase to the game...might be interesting.

With what I've seen of it, it will be a quick phase by basically doing rock scissors paper and only happens if both players have flyers. I don't even think FMC count in it lol

With the new GW FAQ's coming out, which will take precedence? The ITC FAQ or the GW one?

I am yet to fully review these new FAQ rulings from GW. I will be in discussion with other people about these FAQ's as to whether or not some/all are in use as I have seen some really 'bad' rulings in them that go against the way the game is has/currently been played (ie. only being able to use 1 Grenade per phase).

But that is the point though isn't it? They make the rulings with how the game is intended to be played from their designer point of view? They state that they aren't expecting all the answers to be popular, just asking if the answers are understandable. Not that I mind either way, just curious.

*edit - and to be fair the GW FAQs are also still in draft stage, so not final yet. So It's more a question of if they go live before Wintercon, what happens.

If they go live before Wintercon, then I will make my decision. Currently, I'm concerned about some of the rulings, especially some of the more obscure ones as they currently contradict several items of how it's currently played, and it would be unfair for players to have little to no notice of these changes if they were to drop a few weeks before the tournament.
