I doubt the base game rules will ever change, apart from the official FAQ tweak. But as far as the rules of the (predicted and very likely) expansion, your guess is as good as mine...who knows, they certainly can go wild with their game changing addons and game expansions, we'll just have to wait and see .
I myself am a (predominantly)CSM player and would like to see what others think are the best tactics in what situations...the game just gives you soooooo much variety its just too hard to figure out all the possibilities

I'm hoping for more combat card choices. I'd like the game to stay 4 players max, but adding more races will make every game unique based on who isn't included.

I would like more factions, several more, AND, more players!

I am working on a VP-based variant. I love this game, but it often suffers from Starcraft-like predeterminism due to set-up. The inabilty to adequately protect faction tokens can lead to really lop-sided games. They will still hold weight (VP wise) but not be the sole path to victory... Work in progress because i hate that my group doesnt want to bring this to the table already...

That sounds interesting...they should definitely put in a couple of new game modes in the coming expansions! Like TDM or VP based gameplay, or even king of the hill! After all this is a strategy game, you could just port pc game modes with a little tweaking

I'm still hoping someone with a lot more games in their belt than I can come up with some preset maps. It's one thing to learn the game mechanics and learn a faction well in this game. It's an entirely additional hurdle to really know how to build the map and place objectives. It would have been nice early on if we just had a collection of preset maps to pick from.

Then we could have grabbed the "3 players; no orks" map setup and just got to the game and not worried about someone completely screwing their next few hours with poor map choices.
