Going digital will be the deathknell for WW. Same thing happened to Mongoose when they decided to close all support for previous games and dedicate effort into something new. They are still around but merely a shadow of what they once were.
Which frankly can squarely be blamed on the Vampire revamp. Speaking as one of many people who laughed at WW's attempt at a flagrant money grab when they decided to stop with the previous setting, we just stopped buying their products. Bought all the old 2nd edition stuff that we didnt have yet and are happy with that state.
I know you cant be the only one out there who likes the new vampire stuff, but you are quuite literally the first person I have heard say anything even remotely positive about the new setting. But considering you dont have prior experience with the setting, its understandable since there isnt a previous frame of reference.
No trying to debate it, just a better explanation of my stance regarding the changes so as not to appear as too much of a hater. I do like WW and their WoD settings, but they took it too far and lost their core constituents in the process. They would not have this hassle now of going digital, and the CCG would likely have lasted longer if they showed a bit more restraint.
Certainly all the old WoD players I know have never had a bad thing to say about that setting, though more than a few gripes with the new one.
I think it is a crying shame that they are dumping print, especially when firms like Arc Dream, Evil Hat, Pelgrane Press and others are supporting set ups like "Bits and Mortar" to offer free PDFs when players buy the real books. I agree with you that I believe we'll see White Wolf fade from the spot light now, a sad slow death for a firm that used to be on the bleeding edge of awesomely different RPGs
Any way , I guess us fans of VTES will need to wish hard for a miracle :-)
