General BattleTech Discussion / Re: Gen Con 2017 New Releases

The problem is reboot can be taken to mean a lot of different things.
To some a reboot would mean skipping forward a number of years and without a bunch of new tech, changing things up in the setting (MWDA). For others its jumping forward and introducing new factions and new tech that's better than existing (jump to the Clan invasion). And for another fraction a reboot is jumping back to a point in the timeline and wiping out everything that happened after that date and starting over with a different vision (new Star Trek movies).

   Like many of the old bearded clan on here, I've read just about all the novels published. And after all these years I am firmly planted as a merc/independent operator! The one lesson virtually ever book has taught me is EVERY house is built on backstabbing self interest and they all suck, regardless of the thin candy shell of "honor/freddom/strength/bats@#t crazy" they try to project. 😁
   The books utterly convinced me I am a Battletech Anarchist. 😂

But the reboot thing was done before. Look at Wizkids and ClickyTech. Sure, it brought in a lot of new people, but it also made a lot of people walk away from the franchise.


I think that had more to do with how WizKids announced the "reboot". They didn't. There was no indication that the BattleTech universe as we knew it was going to keep going. They just sent out a bunch of units for factions nobody had ever heard of before. Did that mean all the existing stuff was now irrelevant? No answer. Did that mean that there was no more product for existing factions? No answer.

If they had made it clear that the "reboot" was focusing on the Republic first and then expanding into the other factions grognards knew and loved, I think they would've been much better off.

Just my $0.02.

A view from GOES-16 showing the entire shadow as it rocketed across the USA.  That's the umbra and penumbra you see, hence why it looks so massive.  The area of totality, the true umbra, comes to a spot about 70 miles wide right in the middle of that.

With enough thrust, a cement truck can be made to fly.  I serious don't think a pink Pikachu won't be able to accomplish that.  ;)
