BoLS actually posted an interesting article yesterday. Where they got hold of some fairly candid comments from GW designer Robin Cruddice. Three points stood out to me...
- GW designs new models and then writes rules around them. Not vice-versa.
- GW has at least 2 more Codices done and ready to go, but hasn't released them.
- We only got one Codex this year because GW has to keep it's earnings steady.
It has to do with the expectations of their investors. We're not the ones that GW has to make happy. A lot of the BoLS comments expressed frustration, but not an understanding of the situation. So I'll break it down as simply as I can.
"What Does It Mean To Be Publicly Owned?"
Myu asked this question in the BoLS comments, and I don't think that most folks in the gamer community really understand the concept.
