Now that development of Invasion is officially over, I'd like to take an opportunity to look back at the game.

It was the first LCG I played, and I absolutely loved it. It was a great introduction to the warhammer world, and provided me hours and hours of fun.

So thank you FFG for such a great game, I know others feel the same way.

This makes me sad. But my friends and I will continue to play this great game for a long, long, time.

Same for me: First LCG. It got me back into card games in general, since after Magic I figured I'd rather have money than be good at a card game. I never suspected WH:I would be the first to bite the dust.

 

I have to give props to all the designers who worked on this game to make it my favourite one.

Sad, sad day. But despite the fact it is now a DCG (Dead Card Game), I will continue to play and love it.

Sad day indeed.No Tomb Kings cards set.I guess FFG will now concentrate their efforts on the upcoming Warhammer Diskwars game.

Does it mean the end of your podcast as well?

Yet another failed Games Workshop game..

 

This is what happens when there's absolutely no promotion, and no effort to foster new entrants to a game.  Such an effort, and most gamers probably never even heard of it..

Shocked and saddened at the news that there is going to be no more content for W:I.

 

:(

 

I adore this game and feel it will diminish with no new content to come.

 

I was only thinking today that I should write a mail to Winvasion members Daniel and Torsten thanking them for their time and effort they have put in to the podcasts. 

 

I will continue to play the game as long as I have friends who wish to play it.

 

Thank you FFG for the LCG.

 

Wow I'm gutted!

the game lives as long as we gonne play guys. I have to say, i'm quite disappointed.. :(  HK is probably the best deluxe exp. for this game, and i hoped for more awesome stuff. too bad it isn't gonna happen.

Absolutely love WI, but also glad it's the last expansion : game is costly enough as it is , and always disliked the prospect that new cards might force my old ones into oblivion ... now I know this won't happen

I recently just discovered the game with a core set purchase.  Despite playing and keep up to date with AGoT, CoC and LOTR, WH:I was pulling me in enough with the gameplay and mechanics that I was ready to jump in with both feet and get caught up on this one as well.  I must admit that this post is now giving me pause as I was hoping to start a tournament community in Saskatoon, going to be hard with no kits or development.  Sad to see this go, glad it helped develop the LCG format.

I wonder how the polish are taking this. Maybe if they petition enough the game might still live. Any thoughts Virgo? :(

First LCG for me too and loved it.  Bought it in french and played a lot.  Finally sold it becuase I had too much games and not enough time (classic gamer problem) so I forced myself to purge my collection.

 

I recently got a great deal from a FLGS where I ordered the core set but changed my mind for another game.  They replaced it in my order no problemen but offered me the core set for 26CAD! I said YEAAAAH i'll take it!

 

So now I have the core set again, but this time in English, and Ulthuan.  I'll get in this a lot slower then I did last time, buying packs slowly and only when I feel the game gets repetitive.

 

Great game and now i'm hooked to the LCG format and own Netrunner and LOTR too.

Apparently they've had decreasing turnout at their events and I have noticed less dedicated shelf space at my FLGS.

 

I bet Cthulhu is next on the chopping block.

 

Maybe they have a Runebound LCG in the works...

Good news - I picked up HK today!

 

HORRIBLE/SAD news - I found this out today!

 

It is a shame but perhaps the support just wasn't there. I live in Kansas City, MO and I can find no one to play this with. I've checked at all the gaming stores in the whole metro and there seems to be no one. I even travel for work and have posted and inquired about groups playing in Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas so that I might find a game night when I'm on the road... to no avail.

 

My brother and I will keep playing via skype, which is the only person I play with now anyways...  :(

 

I agree with Rodzyn though - the game will stay alive if we keep playing it guys!

 

Also - I'm with Klaymen_sk - will this mean the end of Winvasion? I hope not!
