You want answers? Fantasy Flight Games : I want the truth!
You can't handle the truth! Fantasy Flight, we live in a world that has games. And those games have to be good with thought towards miniature scale.. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Fantasy Flight Games? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for the Death of Mutant Chronicles. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that the death of the Mutant Chronicles, while tragic, probably saved gamers. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves gamers...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me to help you make decisions on scale. You need me to help you out during those meetings.
We use words like scale, playability, cost...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent gaming. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a company who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very games I play, then questions the manner in which I play them! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a new game and a new scale. Either way, I don't give a **** what you think you're entitled to!
Actually the game IMO was a failure from the beginning. 54mm just doesn't fit into most gamers styles of play or type of miniatures collected. I would say at least 90% of the gamers that heard about a new Mutant Chronicles were initially excited but then became extremely disappointed when information about scale came out. I am not exactly sure what and how much time went into pre-marketing, but I can tell you that it wasn't enough. If more research had been done on the miniature scale alone, it should have been evident that 54mm is not the best selling scale to do. By far the best scale would have been either 15mm or 28/30mm. Since Warzone had already used those scales in the past, IMO, it should have been a no-brainer as to what scale to continue with. IMO more consulting of previous Mutant Chronicle gamers should have been utilized.
Even if the game/ruleset was a flop and the figures were in 28/30mm scale, you would have people buying the figures, just so they could have used them in other gaming systems. That alone probably would have helped sales.
