Hi Avelie,

Just to clarify things reference Planetfall and the Kickstarter.

I elected to not include PF in it because, as you all know, we need to seriously improve our efforts for you all when it comes to our ground warfare game and this comes from the 2.0 rules and new models and much more. We need to get you the PF rules PDF this month to evaluate and then move forward with an improved final set of rules for you. If we tried to do that at the same time as FA 3.0 it would have been too much.

So the Kickstarter is therefore built around the work we started last year with FA 3.0. I did consider adding PF products to the KS, such as Pathogen and Saurian Helixes, but I decided I needed to sort the first six factions and rules out before I muddied the waters with new factions on the ground.

With Planetfall I need to deliver the rules out in a format that you are all happy with before I throw new models and factions at you.

Hope that helps,

Neil

Hi Again,

I just wanted to say that I understand that a number of you are frustrated over Planetfall, especially after sinking an investment into the game, and I apologise for causing this frustration and disappointment. Hind sight is a wonderful thing, and looking back taking my foot off the development pedal was a great mistake. We will, however, make up the lost ground.

Once the PF 2,0 rules are with you we will come and talk to you about what models you want next. The game needs to move on with your engagement and blessing.

Cheers,

Neil

Hi @Spartan Neil,

 

Great to have you posting in this tread! Hindsight being hindsight, due to the lack of support from Spartan Planetfall has failed to take of here locally. Which is really a shame I must say, since I like the models a lot. However, rules wise it needs work. I would really like to feel that we are fighting over important objectives instead of just shooting to kill. Stuff like the +1 to hit rule for stationary vehicles really promotes campy gameplay (and this is coming from a Sorylian player mind you!).

Secondly, I really think you should take another look at the cloak mechanics. I feel (and I played against Relthoza a lot) that this does to much in combination with high DR-levels. 

Finally (for now) I think all factions should get access to skydrop. This is a much to cool mechanic not to distribute along all the factions, some should still be better at it then others though!

Ok so all those shiny deadlines you set before are now off the table? And, again, all we have to do is waiting SG's good will? Will you, just once, respect a commitment you made?

How many times do you think someone can be disappointed and lied to before he just quit with a nice "hey, f**k it, there are tons of other games out there!" ?

Keep the helixes

add one of each for the 6 natural allies, and Saurians & pathogens

for the core, release alternative helixes so that there are two for each type

Hi,

As I posted earlier in this thread, I think it was this thread anyway, the Planetfall PDF will roll out this month. I'd not clarified that in my blog, which led to confusion. We are working to hit the Planetfall rules PDF deadline in August, and that will happen.

Regards,

Neil

Hi Fracas,

We will be keeping the Helixes, that is for certain. The plan is to open up their flexibility by allowing you to choose the models that can insert into them, such as with Core Helixes. Namely the Core needs a Small, Medium and Large Squadron.... and whilst we can offer bundled products to fulfil this, we give you flexibility to choose different models. Now we need to make those alternatives for you.

All the best,

Neil
