Dataslate implications that are worth considering

Now that a lot of our old rules have returned, it’s worth re-evaluating some of our staples because hot damn, the implications are interesting:

* ~~Reverting the Ranger Galvanic Rifles back to Rapid 1 means that Battlesphere Uplink is now pointless on the Ranger Alpha, which spares us another precious pre-game CP~~
* I was mistaken, it was always Heavy 2 originally. That’s a bummer because it means Battlesphere Uplink is still relevant
* Furthermore, this combined with how Galvanic Volley Fire used to work means that Rangers now need to be more aggressive with their positioning to make the most of it. That in turn means getting into half range, which makes the Manipulus range buff even more essential
* Further furthermore, this combos VERY well with Agrippina’s bonus AP at half range, giving the rifles a potential AP of -3
* Further further furthermore, if the second part of the Artisans Holy Order Trait is active nearby, then we’re looking at potentially 80 S5 AP-3 shots. YIKES!
* Laschickens are back on the menu thanks to CORE, which is just in time to meet the new prevalence of Knights. I haven’t done the calculations but I wonder if applying BINHARIC OFFENSE on 2 blobs of them can take a decent chunk out of a knight, especially if you factor in a Marshal’s abilities and all the shenanigans we can do with doctrinas and canticles if we’re Mars
