Why are some upset at Be’lakor's attack?

On the 15th of March 2021 Games Workshop revealed some rules for Be’lakor in Warhammer 40k, and some are very upset that he can ignore invulnerable saves.

Be’lakor is quite a unique model as he is playable in both Warhammer 40000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar. With the new model also looking like an absolute beast we can expect the rules for him to follow suit.

As usual, GW has 'teased us' with potential by letting us common folk have a sneak peek at some of the weapon rules coming out for him.

Basically, his attacks are similar to that of a Knight, with one weaker attack getting More attacks and a 'mighty strike' which can ignore invulnerable saves, which some are complaining are 'too many rules'.

Ignoring Invun saves is nothing new in Warhammer 40k, the Callidus Assassin's phase sword already ignores invulnerable saves so why get up in arms about this ruling now?

Could it be that the rule has been applied to a monster of unit, that (predicting as the stats have yet to come out) has a pretty good chance of just owning the entire battlefield?

A lot of the animosity I've discovered towards these rules have mainly come from the competitive community, and as I'm not a competitive player maybe I'm just not seeing what the problem is.

Im more interested in getting my hands on it to paint the damm thing. That model looks amazing.
