  1. It looks like the KS is turning quite bad... When looking at Kicktraq, I even saw a day with a negative amount of pledges, meaning that people are already taking their money back. The overall KS and goals aren't attractive at all, it just looks like some kind of pre-sale, with not much added value. It will probably be funded, but it won't be much over those 50k euros, and I'm not sure that SG can do anything to boost it. Launching this new KS while tons of people are still waiting for the pledges of the previous DW one was a huge mistake IMHO. I, for example, could have pledged for the FA KS, but never will because of this.
  2. Same here, Relthozas have been nerfed (hopefully) but remains very powerful and enjoyable.
  3. I couldn't care less about the other established game companies out there. We talk about SG here. And even if I did, it would be the same for them. Kickstarter has been totally hijacked from the goal it had and should have kept. But that's another debate...
  4. Is Kickstarter SG's new business plan? Will it be a third KS in six months for PF? Kickstarter is a tool to fund original projects, not some kind of way to do pre-sales and get customers's money one year before delivering the product, especially for a long-date established company like Spartan Games. I would also not hope many pledges from the people that are still waiting for their DW KS stuff promised 6 months ago... Bad timing. I, for example, won't even consider dropping a single penny in it until I get every single mini I paid for almost a year ago.
  5. Being annoyed with the kind of things you brought in your second message is all I ask for, along with keeping my minis and playing with it Just give me reasons to do so, and I could even become again the compulsive SG buyer/player I once was!
  6. @Spartan Neil Finally! Thanks for this post (6:42 pm), a hundred times. I'm not pleased with everything you said, but you said it. This is totally different than repeating "Great stuff is coming, be patient guys!" and this is totally the kind of communication I want, and I guess everyone here wants. I know it's more time consuming than just saying "wait guys", but it's a thousand times more informative and can really buy you time from us the players. So again, thanks for this post. We all know that SG is a small company. We all know that it can't handle every game it made. And we're well aware that, when a game don't work the way you hoped and don't make cash, you can't reasonably invest in it again and again. We understand all this. But please, tell us this kind of things. "Folks, we are sorry but we are forced to stop (for now or forever) supporting "choose your game". It's tough to hear, but it's way better than letting us wait for months or years, hoping for the best, to finally learn this is over (I didn't played TUS, but I know that was a real bad surprise for a lot of people, because you announced things that never happened). When you miss a deadline, don't keep silent. Come here, explain us what happened and give us another estimation, even an approximate one. And when announcing a deadline, don't put yourselves too much pressure on. I prefer a far but respected release date than a close one which is postponed multiple times (like you did with PF for almost a year...). I used to be one of the biggest fan of SG, I really did, but all this slowly fainted as you were making the same mistakes again and again. For now, I really have low estime for SG because I consider that you fooled me as a fan and a customer, as well as a lot of other people, and this way too many times. But please, all we ask is that you better yourselves and solve the issues that a lot of people pointed at. You'll be surprised how easy we players can forgive, if we're just a bit pleased. But you have to do it right now, because in 3 months, there might be no turning back. I'm myself on the verge of selling every bit of SG I own (and that's a lot of stuff ^^') and focus on other supported games. Come back here again soon (you or one of your coworkers) to post messages like the one you just wrote. To let us know what's going on at SG's. That's step one, and that would really be a good thing to helps us trust SG again. Then move on at your pace, and deliver us the cool games and minis we know you can get out. That's all we ask! No more silences, no more political cant and no more lies/broken promises. Communication is the key. P.S: Sorry for bad english, had to write it quickly!
  7. Excuse me but no, you don't. You're aware of this problem for years and did nothing. On the contrary, you keep spreading more and more : Taskforce, Fleet Action, Halo Fleet Battles, Halo Ground Combat, Dystopian Empires (thank God, we escaped this one...) and now this boardgame. All this, in the very last few years. Please, stop taking us for fools by saying one thing and doing the opposite, and try to focus on your already too numerous existing games. You might get new customers but you'll lost tons of others. And believe me, it has already started.
  8. As it's available to preorder, I seriously doubt it's part of the KS. It's just classic random SG acting. They get an idea and just do it, no matter if it's totally unwanted or if it hurts their already too numerous barely supported games. BTW SG, what's the point in making surveys if you don't take their results into account? The last one clearly stated that we don't want any new game. You're already totally drowning and unable to provide 10% of the support your current games needs. Stop this nonsense, now would REALLY be a good time. I'm sad to say this but I hope this boardgame will fail hard.
  9. It's a joke, right? Another game? Again? Deal with the existing ones that are currently dying. Have you heard about a game called "Planetfall"? You know, the one with no news at all for a year and half... You could also deliver your kickstarter. I'm just dropping random ideas... Ridiculous, SG will never learn. Won't buy.
  10. We don't act like children. We act like customers who've been lied to for months/years and pushed way too far.
  11. - Communication - Communication - Communication - No more new games and support for each of the existing games (that's a minimum). And by supporting, I mean regularly. Not "one year for DW, one year for FA, oops it's been two years that we did nothing for PF!" - And most of all, no more lies/broken promises. There have already been way too much of them I really loved SG and bought hundreds of minis for almost all their game systems, I really hope they'll finally get their **** together and go forward. I'm pretty sure all of us are willing to pardon a lot of things but SG has to act and change NOW. Not in two months, now. Time is running out... Let's cross fingers!
