Armies are a separate issue. The issues may cover some of the same ground, but since I have not yet had the experience of working with the new, stronger armies, I cannot yet speak to it.
I remember all the lamentations in the very early days, before even the RBD SG's started, about how weak and useless the armies were. Heh. Could this be a case of "careful what you wish for"?
The ultimate solution is for all the rules to be accessible in the editor -- especially anything they decided to change from PTW, which was a fairly well balanced game. If they've broken anything -- and we may not be able to determine what is or isn't broken in the short term -- it's only a crisis if there's nothing we can do in the editor to fix it or change it back.
