Alas, it didn't. There was a Netrunner tournament scheduled at the same time, and that pulled the numbers instead.

That sucks. Well... Better luck next time! This forum is unnaturally dead as far as WHI is concerned. It's spooky.

Appreciate the support, HappyDD.

FFG have some good news around the corner for Warhammer fans which methinks will wake them up again... Hint, hint. ;)

Any proof? It has been discussed at length as to whether 40k would be the next lcg.

The cat's out of the bag! It's too late! Just cause FFG can't control their website doesn't mean it's jasonconlon's fault. Power to the people!

No that is a bad thing if stuff like that happens they have every right to ban him as well as making posts have to be approved before become real imaging how frustrating that will be

Whatever, the image I saw was official and obviously on the internet. They took it down, Google kept it cached. Unless jasonconlon runs Google it isn't his fault. Anyway, who cares when all the conspiracy theorists talking about a new LCG have been vindicated!

Move along people, nothing to see here. ;)

Except some potential awesomeness.

Ironically, this is the busiest the Invasion forums have been since 2013.
