    What will new PF bring us?

    I haven't heard WC mention anything about PF. Where can I review that?
  3. Yep...I'm waiting until I can work through all the rules before playing.

    The future

    @child9 I suspect it is already too late. PF 2.0 will be released someday, and it will likely be a good game. But customers won't come back because SG ignored the primary rule of hobby sales... People buy games/models because of the enjoyable experience they have when interacting (playing games, painting minis, reading fluff, etc.) with them. When a company ignores (SG), forgets, or foregoes (GW's "we make models") the idea that their responsibilities extend beyond a single sale and into the shared realm of the customer's experience, they will not be successful. The Gamer's Haven is one of the most successful mini-centric game stores in the Western United States. Rob specializes (to a degree) in mini games with lots of table space and convention support. He bought a ton of FSA and PF and taught the game to the customer base. The fact he is on here is indicative of how bad the situation is. When he replaces SG's product with something else...SG is very unlikely to ever get that space or promotion back. Which might be ok (but it really isn't) if they are going direct to consumer sales channel approach, which the Kickstarter indicates. The problem then becomes the lack of development and customer engagement. Bottom line...a lack of integrity and communication kills every business. If you don't talk to your customers (both players and retail) and if you don't speak the truth when you do...no amount of create game/mini design will over come that.

    The future

    Good post, Rob. Probably time to vote with your dollars, shelf space, and table space, my friend. At some point, this dynamic stops being anything other than deliberate and either malicious or incompetent. Its too bad...we had what 12 players or so buy PF stuff?
  6. Linde, Thanks for the post. To be clear, I want to make sure I understand what expectations I should have. Spartan Neil posted in Sept in this forum that we should see PF 2.0 rules by the end of the year/first part of 2017. What I hear you saying is that you will have some pre-release models to show us in March, 6-7 months after his post and no mention of new rules. Am I understanding this correctly?

  9. My .02... The LOS system for the current PF game works fine. If you can see it, it dies. This is consistent with "modern war." Remember, if your stuff is hidden/no LOS it can't be destroyed no matter how many hits the opponent has. The current system is simple, fast, and eliminates the most contentious part of playing most mini games. That being said, the tracked/wheeled/walker rules need a revision. As a Terran player, the current rules don't mean much to the game and with terrain can be a real issue with board set-up (when large sections are difficult or impassable to wheeled vehicles).
  10. Come on and play with us! It will be a good time.
