Official Kurak Alliance Thread: Veydreth

Recommended Posts

But you know what they say, wish in one hand, stink in the other and see which one fills up first.  Guess we should be lucky that we're getting any releases (for FA) with all of the DW/DL releases going on.  And the recent annoucement that they're cutting/killing Uncharted Seas.

 

I know, I'd love to see the rest of Veydreth released and maybe gifting us with another small ship.  Either Veydreth or Hawker getting a corvette/frigate.

You can always go to theblackocean.com and look up the old V1 Alliance document and see what you think of the Veydreth corvette, as well as the pre-gimped Hawker cruiser and the now missing Cheygans, Vo'Nar, and Illosians

 

I may just do that. 

 

I do remember there were a lot of proposed factions for the game and that quite a few of them ended up on the cutting room floor.  Which is kind of sad, but then we'd be complaining about not having any ships for XYZ faction or only a ship or two for it.

That's the sad truth.  Game companies can only realistically focus on so many product lines and the ones that get support (RSN) are the ones that sell the best. It's logical and makes sense and is what keeps the game company afloat so you really can't complain.

 

So while I'd love to see 100 ships for every sub-sub-sub faction, including the flying space cheddar monkeys of Ceti Alpha 5, it's not realistic and would only hurt the company. And as for keeping the stats in print, that seems (from previous game company experience) to only confuse and hurt the product.

 

That might seem odd but I've been on countless forums where people would ask "How come there are no minis for faction X" and when they receive the answer "because that's a small sub-faction, released for just a one time supplement" the reaction is almost inevitably "I hate this game company" (not literally as strong, but pretty close) as the one random one off ship in the game that catches their eye must now be made into a full faction just to make them happy.

 

So I, for one, want to see Spartan focus on the core factions, support the better selling ones from the sub-factions (which I hope include either the Veydreth or Teraqui) and keep making FA products.

I know it was asked (in the general section I think) if SG was going to kill FA next and they said no, that they're going to continue to support the game and that they're going to be releasing more minis for us in the next couple of months.  (yay!)  I hope with GW killing their entire specialist games line that SG will attract the attention of all the Gothic Battlefleet players looking for their space combat fix.  And this will encourage SG to pump out minis a bit faster.  Though I'll admit I'm kind of torn since I play DW as well as FA, so I do like seeing all the DW releases.

 

I did look at the V1 Veydreth corvette and I wish they had kept that.  It totally fits the theme of the Veydreth as a raider faction.  You need a small ship to scout out targets and keep convoys from scattering.  So I hope that they reconsider bring back this ship, just for balance's sake.  Though in the mean time, my Veydreth will run cover for my Tarakians.

I still have my rule books and supplements. I don't have the minis though :(

I still have all my BFG stuff, and I'll play it, too. Unlike other dead games that I insist on being into (Confrontation), there's no community for it here, and once the minis are no longer available, the game can no longer grow.

And that's the simple truth.  Though I'm sure a company or two or three will start producing minis to be used with the rules, much like some companies have done with Bloodbowl.

With the stats release today I feel veydreth have been nerfed. The extra inch of movement and increased range bands are nice but at the cost of Hp,CR,guns, and mines all being lowered it defiantly isn't worth it. gonna need to really think about how I want to use them now.
