Default Will 5th ed LOS kill jungle fighters?

Since it seems that 5th edition line of sight relies on what's actually there and the deathworld vets rely heavily on a jungle that is not physically present, will 5th kill the list and rules for deathworld vets, or will they continue to use their jungle fighting rules as a separate set of rules regarding LOS?

5th edition kinda ruined deathworld vets for me, now EVERYONE gets 4+ cover save in woods or forest and line of sight is the same as everyone else now, what made catachans special or kinda non excistent in 5th edition, hopefully they will release a sheet updating catachans to make them a bit better in jungle terrain again because now all you get to do that no one else can usually do is move full speed threw jungle terrain and ambush.

The Deathworld vets aren't legal in tournaments anymore are they? In friendly games I'm sure that you could convince your opponent to subtract one for the deathworld veterans when they are in jungle, so that they still get an advantage.

The codex has a doctrine layout for catachans that defines them pretty well I think. The problem is that it costs an enormous amount of points.

Since the point was to give the catachans a 1 better save in jungle than anybody else, I would agree to give them a 3+ save in the jungle. Most players won't allow this though especially power gamers.

The whole jungle fighter thing isn't gone yet, but it will be when the next guard codex comes out.
