FFG recently stated they're staying Galactic Civil War era and beyond.

Had to go look them over before I could give an informed reply. I'm again going to call those the same game just with different skins.


I agree. I was just pointing out that FFG has a history of doing this, taking basically the same game mechanics but changing the focus of the setting and background (not even actually making it a different setting, just changing the focus) and releasing it as a separate game. As you say, it's primarily a marketing decision. Both approaches have pros and cons, but FFGs history suggests that if they were to release clone wars era ships, this is how they would do it.

More examples, FFG just announced their new "end of the world" RPGs, which I assume will share the same rules system but appear to be separate but thematically linked settings and, of course, the world of darkness games, which may gave been the first RPGs to use the same system as different games in the same setting.

Does seem to be most common with RPGs though, doesn't it.

Thanks, Troy

Oh goody... it's back.

 

We've seen them already, we'll see them again.  We'll have them fight each other.  We'll all have fun.  If you don't want that kind of fun, you make the decision not to have it.

   What???, I love this game, but I don't want to mix with Prequel Ships, I think we don't need it, and I don't like it, I think it has a great ships, but to to get at this game, greettings.

And some would like the option to share upgrades or fight the PT factions. Your opinion is not the only one.

You know, this.

THIS

is the worst part of the thread. Being so, SO enthusiastic about something unconfirmed, something that is subject to change, entirely on a personal basis. This is what bugs me the most.

I understand being bugged by the enthusiasm, but it was confirmed by FFG: http://community.fan...-ships-settled/
