No, I'm not trying to "stir things up" I'm making what I consider to be very VALID points: if the emphasis on quality doesn't improve, and very quickly, there will be NO SST. Matt giving platitudes in a post that he actually started by talking about another game entirely (go check it out again) just doesn't make it.
Behold! The voice of one crying in the wilderness!
I am not trying to undermine MGP!!!!! They were incredibly decent to me (Ian in particular). So don't you even DARE to say that!!!!!
Possibly, BUT - before you 'lost the faith' your posts were never this negative. Even the critical ones had a positive spin to them.
I wasn't trying to impune you, it was just an observation.
WHY did I "lose the faith?"
Because I don't believe in MGP's promises anymore.
And if any of you recently-joined fan-boys want to flame me again, go ahead. I'll be interested to see what you
have contributed to SST. If you haven't been with SST since launch, then you have nothing to bring to the party in this
particular conversation. *sets button to Fan-Boy Ignore* Go away. Shew. Scat. Be gone.
LT, MGP is taking SST in a direction that I whole-heartedly believe will kill it. MGP seems to be reactive rather than proactive. SST COULD have been the 40K killer: the rules had the potential, certainly. The rules won at Origins after all!
Too many crappy releases. SST figs became a joke. To those of us (I think you are one) that were out there trying to get enthusiasm for the game, the following must have been a stunner:
"There have also been some things that we have not been too happy with. The Skinnies, for example, have an incoherent overall feel, which is not what we intended for that army, and there are individual models that were simply not good enough for the modern market.
So...let me get this straight. Somebody other than MGP did the Skinnies? It's somebody else's fault?
IF THE MODELS WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH, THEN WHY DID YOU RELEASE THEM??????
THAT'S the reason, in a nutshell, that I bailed: that philosophy.
MGP had some big plans that I can't talk about, but then they pulled the rug out from under a lot of us.
