      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

Congrats to Jay Little and the crew!!! EotE #2 selling RPG of the Summer!

24 posts in this topic

That's really cool and a hearty congratulation to Mr Little and everyone else behind this gem of a game. Everyone in my group finds that Edge really hits the sweetspot ruleswise.

What's more surprising is that Fate is number five. I wonder if they account for kickstarters or just actual book sales?

2012 they released a new version of their RPG. This summer saw an expansion book that covered the "civilized" kingdoms of Immoren. Some stores are having a hard time keeping copies of either the Core book or the expansion in stock, they sell so well.

We are witnessing the rise of the narrative RPG. Very happy to see Edge of the Empire right up there near the top.

 

I'm curious to see what this chart looks like once D&D next comes out.

I can't decipher the chart. I get from the thread's title that EotE is number 2. Can I ask what game managed to be number 1 over EotE????

Beat out D&D, and only eclipsed by Pathfinder. Impressive, most impressive...

Thank you. :)

 

So I've played two RPG's in my life and I happened to play number 1 and number 2. Interesting! But, I have to say, I think number 2 is a better game for me. I thought Pathfinder was ok until I played EOTE and learned just how much fun an RPG can be! :)

I had a lot of fun with 4e, but there's no question that there were some missteps made. I hope the next edition fares better, but my group is 14 sessions into our EotE game and loving it. I see that continuing on for awhile.

I'm actually not surprised to see Iron Kingdoms on there. Even though I do not care for it myself. But considering how popular Warmachine has become recently, again I am not shocked that Iron Kingdoms made the list.

Just to sum up, the list goes:

 

1: Pathfinder

2: Edge of the Empire

3: D&D

4: Iron Kingdoms

5: Fate Core

Gotta say, so far I'm loving what FFG is doing with the license.

 

But I do find it ironic that D&D is losing out to Star Wars (license WotC dropped because it didn't turn as easy a profit) and Pathfinder (Old version of D&D WotC thought only a few die hards would continue to play).

 

WotC isn't about to go out of business or anything, but I'm sure once all is said and done the 4e tale will make for a nice case study about misjudging customer expectations and attempting to leverage technology that's still in a state of maturation and not well understood by your company's leadership.

The fact that many people are waiting on the next version of D&D for the most part, it speaks rather well to the brand that it is still showing in the top five (if you buy into these rankings). Its not terribly surprising though.

Seeing as how WotC hasn't really put out anything new for several months, I'm kinda surprised they ranked as high as they did.

 

Then again, they did reprints of the 1st edition core rulebooks, so maybe the nostalgia factor is what carried them through the year.
