This is a sad day for Conquest. It's a day many of us had a feeling was coming but that doesn't make it suck any less so.

 

But here's the deal. I'm not willing to roll over and let Conquest die because some business deal between two big companies went south. I love this game and I know many of you do to. We still have our cards and it's up to us to keep this thing alive!

 

With that said - I'm happy to announce the upcoming Black Crusade Expansion!

 

I had a bad feeling today's announcement was coming so I wrangled together some Conquest Champions and some former play testers and we've set to work!

 

I believe we will be able to get these cards up on octgn and if so, I will make them legal for future seasons of The Black Crusade League.

 

Speaking of which....I still plan on doing that for as long as there's interest. I remember the days of the 16 and 20 man tournaments. This gme may be canceled but I know many of you will still love it and I think 1 game a week for a handful of weeks, a few times throughout the year, can still be do-able.

 

Our first expansion will consist of roughly 2 or 3 cards per faction, give or take. I'll have more details and spoilers to share in the coming months. Look for The Black Crusade Expansion Pack 1 to hit your digital shelves during Q1 of 2017!!!!!!!

Well that's awesome news because there are tons of units that I was super excited about that we haven't seen yet in the game.  Come on Eversor Assasin!

I don't have any experience in creating balanced cards for games, but if you need some assistance, I can try to create and/or test them. I think our local community will also be happy to help you.

For some of us it won't only be today :/

 

Not an OCTGN player before, this might get me started with it...new cards for Conquest sounds awesome. Otherwise I will just stick to deazra and hope he will still playing OCTGN in the future and recieve those new cards.

I am unfortunately in another country now but if you ever need a playtester give me a PM and I'll do it over OCTGN. Thanks Sam for keeping this awesome game alive.

I know that i'm speaking with crazy mind and rollercoaster emotions  but it would be great to kickstart next printed unofficial expansions!

I think we should reach out to the community all over the world.  I'm sure people would be glad to playtest "new" cards.  We'll need people with all kinds of skill sets.  Playtesting.  Artwork.  Warhammer lore.  Maybe we should have a meeting AT Worlds to discuss the feasibility of keepign the game alive ourselves.

If Kickstarting it would be legal, I'd pledge immediately.

this is the strange things of company thinking: they broke a contract which means they are not interested anymore in making profits from the game, but if the community reacts and tries to mantain the game alive, they claims their rights on the game.

I would be interested in working on black crusade design or play testing.

the 40K IP is still owned by GW.  I can't see how GW would allow us kickstarting the production of cards using the GW IP regardless of their purpose.  To continue to support the game with fan submissions and fan run tournaments is one thing.  To start a very public kickstarter campaign is another, and GW is not shy about C&D letters.

 

That said if it were a possibility I'd pledge in a heartbeat.

Even better than having a few playtesters, why not take advantage of the non-printed format and have a new "pack" have open design discussion here, and a beta-version before we fine tune and turn the cards into their final forms?

 

And yes, obviously, keep money out of it, unless you want GW crapping on you from a height.

 

However, also worth exercising caution. Lack of money being involved won't necessarily stop them.

Funding, printing, selling, pledging - lots of legal gray area here. Fan made for no profit with download and print is safer IMO.

I've kept the design team relatively "small" by choice. Too many opinions and nothing would ever get agreed upon or accomplished.

That said - yes, I will need playtesters from around the globe. Metas are different. More info soon on how/who/when we can get to play testing.

Thank you!

Good to hear.  That's the smartest path IMO.
