  1. Sure I know what you're trying to imply, I just reject it. there are a multitude of miniature war games that haven't been updated in years that people continue to play. The idea that you can't play a game because it hasn't seen an update in the last year I find kinda dumb. It just sets you up for disappointment when invariably an article is late, something doesn't ship on time or the game doesn't go where you want it to. Sure I definitely acknowledge that the lack of new content is a bummer. It's just not the only thing that makes a game.
  2. It's only dead when you stop playing it.
  3. At least for Armada it's at a different location this year. Nothing saying it couldn't be in Europe one year, NA the next etc. You're right if you're not in the US the location for Worlds has been and continues to be highly problematic.
  4. All in all it was good to see them backtrack to a better hierarchy of organized play. The invite only worlds I am strongly against. Having an inclusive, open community for all is of paramount importance. Going to invite only encourages bad elements in the community and game play in general. One thing about gamers, if you flip the 'you must win at all costs' switch, then some people sure will and I really don't want to see that happen to our community.
  5. In the "so Armada is dead right?" category. At the FFGC regional this weekend we had 32 players. That's 4 rounds with cut to top 2. That's up from 24 last year. Our local tournament sizes have also seen an interesting uptick in numbers with a number of new players. It's pretty cool. <snark> O right, worlds numbers for Runewars was like double YtY and well ... look what they did there. </snark>
  6. And they are the same as what can be found in like an X-Wing box FWIW.
  7. Another way this COULD go is that FFG stays involved with the game but does it in a different way. Other game companies are turning to kickstarted / fire starter to basically say, we'll make X, but you the players have to back the project and thus sales are made ahead of development. I don't honestly know if FFG would ever consider that kind of approach to doing something for a game, but if I'm ever rubbing elbows with one of the upper types at FFG in the future, that'll be the #1 question I'll have for them. Maybe others who might have a similar opportunity to pose that kind of question would keep it in mind and do the same.
  8. hmmm thinking about this, and as an active Legion player, I could see this kind of thing working for skirmish game. I'd tender @Church14comments about activation Spam in Armada. There are real and effective counters. I play Imperial mostly so I tend to face lists which have that advantage. The major problem with activation spam lists is they have lots of smaller ships given the point costs needed to field lots of ships just to have the activations. Now that you can only field at most 2 transports, it forces rebel players to spend more on ships that are more brittle, like a CR90 or Hammerhead. Anyway, like your idea. Feels generally workable.
  9. This always surprises me when people say this. If you stay in the hotels next to Gencon sure, but if you don't prices are more than reasonable.
  10. Hi Everyone! As a community you've seen some of the efforts involving tournament docs etc. It's great to see folks coming together for this game. Towards that end, it's time to organize a Runewars Gencon tournament. The purpose of this email is to find out the following: 1) How many rounds should it be. (I would advocate 4) 2) Would you attend? 3) Are you willing to help plan? (You don't have to be attending to help plan or be part of making the event great) Thanks!
  11. I echo the comments this needs to be a community effort, not "initiative one". Just as FFG had a team of people, this requires a community team to handle all the various aspects of keeping this community together and importantly vital. As a team this assures that no one person gets overloaded/burned out etc. We ought to be identifying what all needs to be done and be giving people opportunities. Take worlds for instance, I can very much appreciate that a store can say they want to run that, but again, this needs to be a group think. Politely I think the appropriate thing to say is, we will have a worlds, we will have store championships but much is TBD at this very early hour. Running large events (voice of experience here) is not something to be taken lightly. No matter where it's held there are logical matters to consider and most importantly we need to keep things worthwhile for the player who almost all will have to travel a fair distance. We can not at this point dismiss the other ideas such as holding it at Gencon.
  12. And from the ashes it's great to see the community come together for this game. Picking up the various docs, and making a go at keeping this game going. If you're not on discord, now is a good time to do so. https://discord.gg/BC2eWY For real time discussion that's the place!
  13. As fantasy flight will not update the tournament doc, let's take charge and do so! 1) We need to retire and select a new deployment/objective 2) Shall we raise the point limit to 225? What say ye? I'll get a google doc going with the community tournament doc.
