Online play

20 posts in this topic

 

 

I well know how much FF tends to shy away from online versions of its games, but I feel this game and the other living card games lend themselves well to online play.  I am sure they could make one pretty cheap, especialy with community support and help, it would serve to promot they game, I am even sure a profit generating plan could be found for it.

 

I would sure like to see such a thing so I can kick in a few games on a quite rainy evening.

 

Right now I play race for the galaxy that way.

I found octgn a bit complicated and not that stable. A official version (or a community game just build around WHI) would be ways better.

I would love to see an online alternative!

But not like Magic: Online, where you have to pay real prices for virtual cards!?

I mean I would pay for it if necessary, but not the price for the cardgame.

I played some rounds with Lackey. It works good, but handling resources is sometimes a pain if you play a high resource Empire deck. Anyone who wants to play a round - just mail me.

Hi

I can tell you without shadow of dout that we wont see Warhammer Invasion online play. I put that very question to Fantasy Flight and the following is ther reply.

"At the moment there is no announced plan for this... We are first and foremost a 'physical' game company and very few of our games have been licensed for electronic or online play.

 

One of our rules of thumbs is in general, to allow 'player aids' but not any sort of unlicensed software that would replace a player needing to physically have cards. The Magic Online game has a HUGE infrastructure behind it for having cards bought - being a smaller game, that sort of work to make a secure software program for this would likely not pay back the many skilled hours of programming..."

I is a shame as this game would work well online. But what can you do, if they say no then what can we do.

Sorry to be the one to bring bad news.

That is a bit sad, I think one would be able to restrict cards in an easy way by adding codes to the products. And every code can be claimed only once in the software.

And if the are afraid of the programming hours they could introduce a community project.

I never got Lackey to work well on GNU or Mac and OCTGN I was not able to bring to start.

So does anyone has a webcam and wants to do some games over it?
