    I haven't been rude to you at all Frogtrigger, despite you calling me jaded, rude, negative and condescending, as well as you telling me my point is invalid because you haven't had that experience.
    I don't need you to police my post. I agreed to disagree. I'll simply leave it at that.
    Perhaps I should have simply stated that I am unlikely to support a game I think I would enjoy due to past company decisions involving the support and marketing decisions of games in their line, much like others have stated they are unlikely to support it due to the app requirement. I was curious to see if others felt the same way after the recent Runewars announcement which suggests the end of that line as well.

    You are of course entitled to your opinion, as an I. My position is based on past experiences. I also collected Warhammer Invasion, Star Wars card game and several others that were pulled before their tenure was up. So let's agree to disagree mate as we've obviously had different experiences. 
    The games I've chosen to support have been discontinued. Therefore I am asking if this one is going to stick around. I'm sure I'm not alone in that question. I don't want to invest in a game to only see it discontinued before being fleshed out.

    Will it be supported long term by FFG. They stopped supporting Battlelore 1st edition and then second edition as well as several other games I enjoyed. Now with Runewars looking like it is on the way out, I honestly don't know if I want to jump into another game even though it looks great and is a theme I really love.
    What sort of assurances are there that this game will be supported long term?

    I think I'm of the same thinking as you are on this one. I have found myself having an increasingly hard time getting into FF games lately and then product being impossible to buy (LotR LCG/Descent2) or being dropped altogether without enough notice (Android Netrunner reboot).  I haven't found this to be the case with games I enjoy from other companies that seem to have longer print runs and less uncertainty for buyers.  So while I'm pretty stoked to get a lord of the rings game like Decent or Mansions of Madness, I'm not very confident in that game coming from Fantasy Flight.  This is more worrying when the game requires an app.  At least with Descent2 I can still play if FF decides not to support the game and drops the app.  Being in Canada also seems to add additional challenge, as I've been stuck a couple times in the last year or so not receiving my preorder and then the product isn't reprinted (eg. The Mountain of Fire).

    Boromir_and_kermit reacted to Beren Eoath in please add all girls Amazon teams on the next expansion   
    Looking at the expansions I would say that the next comming after Foul Play should have a new order union. We will have now 3 unions for the destriction races from WF and only one for order. So if FFG will announce something after Foul Play I hope to see more good site teams like High Elves, Lizardman and Amazons in one box, with a new union and a lot of new cards.

    I have played Battlelore since the day it was released. I am a diehard fan that has everything for 1st edition (most things twice) and still plays regularly. To give you an understanding of where I stand, I would have liked 2nd edition to be more compatible with 1st edition, but its not and I'm over that. I like Battlelore 2nd edition and think it is presented really nicely (and I play regularly) but think that some things got changed too much due to the complaints of those who played only a handful of times.
     
    Most people that just played Battlelore 1st edition a couple of times don't realise that it did have Objectives in many of the scenarios. Saying that you only got VPs (Banners back in 1st edition) for killing units is patently wrong.
     
    Taking opponent's banners in the first edition wasn't to represent just taking out units, but was to represent the breaking of your opponent's morale.
     
    The Scenario specific VPs in Battlelore 2nd edition are 'mostly' just focus points on the battlefield. Which means that although this may represent having objectives in real life (and I'm not trying to take anything away from anyone), but each game revolves around those spots. You will have an ebb and flow of units taking and being forced from those spots. That's the way it plays. This is undeniable. This will be great for some, but not so great for others that like to see the battlefield evolve over the course of a game, not just continue to back and forth over two or three spaces.
     
    I'm not saying to remove these objectives, but there should be some way to get VPs by taking out enemy units and thus reflecting the loss of morale as their army is degraded. This might be by taking out a number of 'points' worth of units, or elite units only etc... But something to create more dynamic battles.
    All the best anyway guys.
    Cheers,
    Ben.

    With focusing just on VP locations rather than destroying units or both, each game just is a struggle for those points. I think it really restricts the game and ends up focussing the action on those static points of the map which is dissappointing.
     
    Check out the scenarios that Richard Borg has uploaded to the scenario builder that award VPs for unit elimination as well. Adds much more tension and is more interesting IMHO.
