Aparently they've made a video with the final match of the biggest tournament in Spain.
It is in spanish with english subtitles.




They should have made it in english.

Or you could respect that the company that makes the game is Spanish and apply those leet reading skills.

Yeah, I mean. It was held in Spain for crying out loud.

It could have been in Galician, with Catalan subtitles.

Team Rocket Deva, ftw! The new Oda nice too. Overall, a good month. Will be adding the dakini/Deva box to my ALEPH to get list. The Oda is must get too.

Finally, a new trauma doc. I do hope CB has a new machinist too. Are the palbots up for resculpt? I don't like the current ones. They did resculpt the nasmats, so...

Since they recently resculpted the Yu Jing engineer/doctor and released with the old yaozao so I doubt it...but in saying that though you never really know. Flipping a coin would be your best bet to see whether they do or not

Gotta love the golf-announcer voices during the tourney, too.

Sooooo Third Offensive book has been in lots of hands for a couple of days, and not a peep from anyone. Not a single bit of lowdown on the units not yet detailed... What gives, guys?

Infinity: Way, way better than 40K and more affordable to boot!

Yeah, same as Uprising and pretty much all the books going forward. There is no reason to put Profiles in the books as ARMY is updated quicker and far too frequently that the book would be outdated by the time you get it.

There are rules in there though. CB has gone out of their way to also try and stop... deter, people from spoiling anything with pics.

Shame they don't bother to drop the price on the books significantly to reflect the removal of content.

Lack of profiles - even if it's a logical decision due to updates in army - is the reason I didn't get one, but that's a purely personal choice on my part.

I believe Army is being updated on the 30th, so still another week.

Yeah you can get the same thing from Army or the PDFs, but those don't include the lore--which many people love to argue "informs" the way the profiles are built.

Army lists and profiles, like you say, are online anyway. I get the books for the lore, and haven’t even looked at profiles in them. Nothing’s changed for me, and I wager a lot of people buying the books.

There's no removal of content. That content was never planned to be in the books, and was never announced as being in the books. That content is also being given to you for free, just like it always has been in the past.

He’s just complaining for the sake of complaining. The profiles and new rules are all available online.
This isn’t some cheat. CB has always made all the rules and profiles freely available. It’s plainly outmoded to include them in s book, especially since they're obsolete when the first FAQ drops.
Don’t get me wrong, I like having the core book to reference and read at length. But one off rule lookups, oddball interactions, or new levels of existing skills are better handled with PDFs and the wiki.

Except they still spend time on the profikes that come with the book and it doesn't add much to the anyway.

And yet the books are still sitting at $47.99 MSRP(Uprising) and $53.99 MSRP(Third Offensive) compared to Human Sphere and N3's $69.99 MSRP.

Yes, they all are effectively cheaper since discounted purchases are a thing--but you really think the lack of a second book shouldn't be reflected more in the pricing?

Because generally there's some massive glaring issue that has to be resolved that could have been caught by proofreading.

I'm "complaining" because the prices don't reflect the content. Uprising is not a $47.99 book and I highly doubt that Third Offensive will be worth the $53.99.

That's your opinion. You've been told multiple times that some people would prefer to have print versions specifically to avoid having to keep a tablet around or to avoid using their data plans up just to play a game.

Apparently it drops $22 for Uprising and $16 for Third Offensive.

Because those are the price differences between those profile-less books and the N3 and HS books.

People who refuse to use anything but Print rules from a book that will certainly need revisions? I doubt they really exist.
Using up your data plan? Really? It’s an app on my phone or a simple webpage, not streaming GoT.

The online rules content is a feature, not a bug. Infinity has always been that way.
Profiles in all the current edition books are all obsolete already now. The game is built to be played with the digital tools.
Anybody who expects to only pull rules and profiles from books needs to join this century.

If you want fluff, you pay for some dead tree. If you don’t like the price, don’t buy it?
I don’t see the complaint here, except that I think you really just don’t like the game.

Can you guys maybe start using the IGNORE feature on each other?

Or, if you can't, just start ignoring certain posts?

Or, if you can't do that, maybe wander on down the Infinity sub-forum for a lot of this crap?

Would be nice if this thread had a lot less of that, and more...news and rumors.

This thread has never been a great source of infinity news.
Enough Infinity reveals drop on FB groups & YouTube channels now that I can find most things there.
The idle speculation (I supposed they could be called rumors) is amusing here.
The normal banter is helpful to mull over new releases & directions the game is going in. Flame wars are an inevitable side product of that discourse.

Yeah, that's not actually a good enough reason to be part of a small, select group that routinely craps up this thread.

There really is a whole other sub-forum here where you can...amuse yourself, with the side benefit that this thread can actually be for news, rumors and sure, why not, idle speculation on said news and rumors, and not that...other stuff.

No real news stateside since it's going to be awhile most likely for it to show up here.

Mostly it's WarCors who have them and CB regularly deletes posts that concern fluff. Army Builder update is supposed to be the 30th.

Yes.

This is not just a book consisting purely of background information on the events taking place on Paradiso, but it also unlocks two new sectorials, adding the Tartary Army Corps (Ariadna) and Operations Subsection (Aleph), that were released in Operation Coldfront, but also the indomitable, Invincible Army (Yu Jing) and the highly specialized Varuna Intervention Division (PanOceania), two brand new sectorials greatly anticipated by the community.

It will also include some modifications to the rules and the profiles in a few sectorials - such as the Morat Aggression Force (Combined Army), Military Orders (PanOceania), and the Shock Army of Acontecimento (PanOceania), as well as new equipment.
