lol

tis a shame though, good thing is my bank acount gets a month of. bad thing is at half term i spend zero on gaming often so after that il be doing catch up :(

i have to say to mongoose please do the blacked out cockpits and not have clear windows on them with crew inside, these are game minatures not toys. if the delay is caused by clear windows on the copters and internal crew il be a bit peeved as personaly im gonna paint the windows black anyway, it just looks better on a games table.

in the mean time mongoose why not release this month single warriors and packs of FAV's for players wouldnt take long to organise.

While I'm somewhat irked by yet another delay, hopefully it'll give us a better-looking lynx model.

although I may have to use my Evo money for this month on a Chally and EFTF squad form MGP, and avail of the free technical box...

this is getting stupid now, I might as well pack it away until they sort out there "issues" with China.

If this is how inconsistant SST evo will be then I might as well put my cash into infinity!

why bother with what?

you need to understand that I've played SST from the very begining and what you are seeing here is a worse release schedule than the troopers attempt, When BF Evo was announced various pledges were made to improve on the SST release farce and what I'm looking at now is history repeating itself from 2 years ago, I've read the blog and yes things don't always go according to plan, but personally I've read enough topics with people moaning about releases being pushed back etc.. and I was a postive person back then but now I carn't be bothered with the excuses etc.. BF Evo has been out for about 5 months now and you've 3 releases for the USMC compare that with AT43!

My thoughts exactly.

and i think AT-43 is winning on the price war as well.

I like the game, and i lke the simplicity of the minis, but to keep my friends interested we need somthing new every month, maybe evan every 2 weeks, or they will loose interest and MGP will loos my custom along with them as im not one for buying minis im not gonna use regular, just for the sake of it, im in it for the game but the game needs to be kept fresh.

£100 of my mini spending this month i think will be going into somthing Airsoft related.

I'm glad the dates are pushed back...gives me more time to save money.

Don't forget this is still kinda of a new game. I would rather them release these at a slow pace then flooding the game with tons of stuff. This also makes it easy for new people to start. I happen to be collecting all 4 factions so the pace works great. But I can see if you were building a force from one faction how you would want more,more,more.

All true, but I played SST from the begining too and. . . well, this ist the Mongoose. If you want to play AT-43, go on.
I will stay with Mongoose and wait. . . and bolster my forces, as they do come at a price.

My issue with the release schedule is compounded by the rolling back of the release dates.

Right now there is too much disparity in the force types. Everyone should have a command unit, everyone should have armor, everyone should have anti-armor units. Now with the delay, it is going to take longer for the factions to be balanced out.

My big fear is that a lack of new units equals a dwindling of interest in the game until opponents are few and far between. Why wouldn't Mongoose have a few waves ready to roll when the game was released to take advantage of the "hotness" of a new game? Folks are foaming at the mouth for new stuff when a good new game releases.

At least Mongoose HAS a publishing / release schedule that they are willing to publish. Most companies don't bother.

I think it takes time to make such a game as BFE. And things are going on. As SST died, nothing moved. . . this is far better yet.
