It's a bit of a shame, but probably for the best. Let the dead stay dead. There's still plenty of material within that game to play for years with friends without needing to revive it anyway.
Thats the truth. Fun while it was active and still a blast to play! lol
To be honest I am one of those players that is refusing the let SWM die through all of the Community Supported V-sets that have now come out. the game continues to be a blast and now I have a purpose for all those "waste of Space" minis that you get when you blindly buy a booster pack. I will agree I was very disappointed with WOTC last few sets, but the guys who have taken it upon themselves to keep the game alive have done a fantastic job. if you haven't checked out the V-sets, head over to www.swmgamers.com I think you will be surprised by the level of game play that is now apart of this game.
I would definately be down for a Dust Style Star Wars Tactics game… I would love it if they would produce terrain too for them or better yet champion the Game Customizers. Back in the day you had magazine articles and stuff and that all cost money. Now you could just produce or run a Blog and I think it would be a hit (all for a lower overhead then managing and editing a monthly magazine.
I, like so many others, played Star Wars Minis from the begining until the end. I still get the V-Sets, just to keep up with what's going on with the community. Although, I haven't played since the demise of the WotC first run of minis (I couldn't play "to buy a paper bag, to get out of" right now -- I'm that rusty).
I would like to see FFG do something about this in the future , with a mechanic that keeps things balanced. (So don't rush it to the printers just appease us, the fans.)
