      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Battletech card game in a new LCG flavor!

8 posts in this topic

 I'd love to see FFG take a look at doing something within the Battletech/Mechwarrior franchise.  There used to be a Battletech CCG ages ago that was really fun, and with Mechwarrior Online entering closed (now open) beta, my LGS has seen an increase in people playing the Classic Battletech Tabletop game.  MWO has drawn new players to start playing (and vets to return to playing) Classic Battletech, I imagine people would likewise be drawn towards a Battletech LCG as well.  In the meantime, I guess I could proxy old cards and rehash the "good ol' days!"

 

A Battletech LCG, who's with me?!?

This would be cool, but would Catalyst ever give up the rights (especially when they could just do a card game themselves)?

Yeah the rights could be a mess… do you deal with the reformed FASA, Catalyst, or Topps?  Who knows, that could even be an advantage depending on "who owns what" in Battletech terms.

 

That said, Catalyst hasn't broken into the card game market (so far as I can tell), so they may be willing to make a similar arrangement to the one between FFG and GW. (of course on a smaller scale/cost)

I am not sure how it would work out, but I would totally buy into anything Battletech that had the quality of an FFG product. An LCG would be an interesting concept… your cards could consist of Mechs and Pilots. To battle you have to play a combo of the two. Add-on packs could contain a new battle/planet with some new Mechs and pilot cards.

This might not be a popular viewpoint, but...I don't care if the Battletech game keeps the same theme. Netrunner survived its re-theme so well, I would welcome a re-theme of Battletech. I would, of course, prefer that it stayed as close to the "battling mecha" theme as possible, but it doesn't have to be Battletech per se.

Then what would you suggest?  Options where people could play as battle armor troops?  Aerospace?  Have warships duking it out in orbit as the attacking force tries to get dropships dirtside?
