Another missed opportunity

Recommended Posts

It seems Asmodee/FFG are non interested in this game: no news, no preview, nothing 😞 Probably Asmodee acquisition had only one thing in mind: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and not to sell good products 😞 They have one good product here, but no intention to support it 😞

I know that the purpose of the Internet is complaining - but what opportunity?? Both games are incredibly different, and both can exist. I would love an expansion for HoT but the LOTR game existing has nothing to do with it coming out or not. HoT sales influence that.

HoT sales are good (as stated by the brothers), but no expansion is announced or requested to the developers. For JiME the expansions were announced before the game was out!!!! It is clear where Asmodee/FFG is putting the money 😉

BTW, I would be happy if Asmodee/FFG will read my complaint: unfortunately it is not supported by other players and this says that the players are not willing anything new for this game (in Asmodee/FFG perception) 😞

JiME is a great game and due to its IP will sell well, so no wonder they are betting on it. Again - it is not that they have to choose between doing one or the other, it's not that HoT expansions would make millions and they refuse to publish them. This is FFG still, if the expansion is financially a good idea it will come out.

That said - JiME doesn't have an expansion announced, not really. Only a box of 3 miniatures, a tradition FFG started with Descent 2nd edition and still continues, it's really an expansion, just a blister pack, similar to cosmetic DLC, designed at the same time as the base game. The app campaign might be considered closer to an expansion, but I don't think any of the additional Descent/Imperial assault campaign were considered that.

You are right with the first part of the sentence, but they will do it (i.e. no HoT expansion because of JiME).

I don't agree on the second part: this is no more FFG, this is Asmodee/FFG i.e. only money counts i.e. if an expantion doesn't sell millions they will not publish it also if it would be "slightly" remunerative and it would be a good product.

I hope to be wrong: the future will tell 🙂

Personally I don't see a big difference between FFG and Asmodee/FFG, all the terrible practices like blisters with minis started before Asmodee. And HoT was published by new FFG, so it means they believed in the product, whether it sold good enough to warrant an expansion is something neither of us knows. I do hope we will get one and not have to mix the two games together for some variety :) However, I am certain that if they decide not to publish it is because it doesn't make business sense and not out of spite.
