    1) Not actually free. Need a different pass type to get one. 
    2) It comes out April 13th. We have known that for a bit now.

    Well, too bad.  It's not about you or me, it's about growing the game and getting big buzz over it.  It's going to greatly increase the odds of the games long term health that a few people got it a few weeks before the rest.  It's now going to be played openly during one of the bigger US gaming conventions

    Just picked one up from someone who already had their copy on EBay for barely over selling price.  Woohoo!

    I've always thought they were one of the ones that weren't so great.  I played Warmachine for around 8 years.  Badly designed models as far as building them, rules that make players try to plan everything around a first or second turn victory, being in the Seattle area the staff and ownership are arrogant and unfriendly.  I think the original premise of Warmachine was great 15 years ago, and its hugely popular still (so maybe I evolved out of their target market), but recently trying the newest version after a hiatus, it's still way too frustrating to play

    The quality has greatly improved the models are easier to assemble and look much better but yeah there is a heavy emphasis on alpha strike, though first and second turn victories are rarer now...games still don't usually last longer than 4 turns though.  I've never found the staff rude or arrogant but I have only contacted them do to issues and they always handled those quickly but I mean I can understand your hesitation or dislike.

    These are my exact thoughts. The only alternative I can see is to have the upgrade cards completely separate from model packs and sold as a card only expansion. Perhaps the Command Pack will offer most of the upgrade cards?

    A big, badass, demon-fouled desert beetle-monster.

    He's the Uthuk Y'llan legendary unit from their expansion box for Battlelore, with the first being the Chaos Lord, who I am also looking forward to seeing in Runewars. Legendary figures in general.

    Barrow Wyrms, Banshees, Roc Warriors, Siege Golems, and the like.

    I'm really impressed with the miniatures as I thought I would be.  FFG fails to disappoint in that area recently.
    i love the size of the terrain and that they are really specific rules wise.  Looking forward to new and varied types with the expansions.  
    I also noticed what I think is a turn counter dial, attention to detail is fantastic, they pretty much cover all bases really well.
    impressed, can't wait to play.  Hoping someone does a playthrough video pretty soon.

    @Budgernaut I think at this point @FrogTrigger is just trolling and/or using this discussion to up the page count for the next time he has the opportunity to say "look at the page count on this thread about how the game is overpriced." To both of you I say, your not convincing the other side so at this point it would be best to walk away either buy the game or don't.
    And to @TallTonyB I am sorry that you are being dragged through the mud, I hope your demo's at adepticon go well and draw more people to this awesome game.

    Wrath of Kings is actually a pretty fantastic game (and I'm normally critical of CMON).    And yeah, it's been promoted fairly well lately

    Is it really that finnicky to count from 1-10 six times?

    X-Wing has a similar initiative system and those games go a lot longer. As a player it's on you to know when your units activate. 

    Playing MOST tabletop games, not just FFG games, you should never be breezing right past triggers without asking the other player, anyway.

    Unfortunately, most reviewers don't take into account or just don't get many of the small nuances that set games apart.  They don't spend enough time with the game before they review it.  I steer myself towards actual gameplay videos over blank reviews any day

    Maybe you're just cynical... After all it is a rank and file game and as such the size and types of formations are already well known.  
    That doesn't mean FFG won't maximize their selling potential, but that's simply what companies do, try to maximize their profits.  If you don't like it then don't play it.  But don't for a moment think FFG is unusual in how they price luxury items.  They are in fact one of the more reasonable companies when it comes to price.
