As covered in this thread
, we've released the v2 beta rules for Maelstrom's Edge (you can download the beta rules here
, right now) and it goes without saying that: we need your feedback!
While we have internal playtests in the works, from now until the end of February (2022) the more feedback we can gather from external sources (aka YOU) the better. At the end of February, we'll wrap up the beta period of the rules and get hard at work crafting the final rulebook for release.
Anyone who takes the time to give us feedback during this period will be entered in a chance to win a free copy of the final version of the v2 rulebook. More on that below.
WHAT FEEDBACK ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Even if you have no interest in playing games of Maelstrom's Edge, we would still love and appreciate feedback from you. At the very minimum, if you can download and read the full v2 beta rules and then give us your constructive thoughts on what you like and don't like about it (layout, mechanics, how the force balance looks to you on paper, etc), that would be a huge help.
If you're willing to give the rules a try (even as a solo player playing both sides), we'd obviously love to hear how the games went. These don't even need to be fully detailed battle reports with pictures, but at the bare minimum we need:
A breakdown of the forces each side used.
What mission you played.
Which side won, on what turn and what the final VP tallies were.
At least a brief overview of what happened in the game (which units dominated, which were useless, etc).
Your thoughts about the game, the rules in general and the balance of the forces you played with.
Obviously if you want to go hog wild and include pictures, maps, detailed turn by turn descriptions, etc, we'd love that even more, but any
details you can provide about your games will help us make the final v2 rules that much better.
WHERE DO I GIVE MY FEEDBACK?
You can give your feedback right here, in this forum. You can either reply directly to this thread (or any other existing one) or even start your own new thread if you feel like it.
If you're a member of our Comm Guild Facebook group (and if you're not, you should join!), you can leave your feedback there as well (best to make a new post there with your feedback).
HOW DO I WIN A FREE V2 RULEBOOK?
If you give any constructive feedback at all on the beta rules (whether it's positive or negative constructive feedback), you will be entered in a chance to win a free copy of the final v2 rulebook. This feedback can be in this forum, on facebook or any other method that we can see it.
For each battle report you post, you will be entered an additional time into the drawing for the rulebook (increasing your chance to win).
I will keep an ongoing list of people who are eligible to win the rulebook at the bottom of this post. We may (likely) end up giving away more than one rulebook when all is said and done, but no matter how many additional times you get entered into the drawing (for example, if you submit like 4 battle reports), you'll still only be able to win a maximum of 1 rulebook.
Thanks in advance!
Here's the list of those who have (so far) given beta feedback and are therefore eligible to win a copy of the v2 rulebook. If you feel as though you've provided feedback but your name isn't on this list yet, please shoot me a PM
