Infinity Sunset: Hacking

Game Theory

As long as I have an audience here, and Corvus Belli checks my blog, I’d like to write a series of “sunset” articles as clean out my collection.  Like all community ideas, little can reach the design team.  But, that BS13 Mimetism Triad Symbiont did, so:  to your design team, who may be stuck in a rut of writing Aristeia and Special Fireteams and BS-3 mods, here is my parting gift.

I’ll begin with the least interesting rules, for Tohaa players:  Hacking.

It’s nearing completion.  It has taken months longer than we expected, even with added help, but we are rapidly approaching the finish line.  I want to share with you a quick post teasing some of the tweaks for existing Infinity profiles, as well as the logos for a few new ones:

A Kurage Report I Couldn’t Post

Campaigns

First of all, great work, to Combined Army and Tohaa players alike.  Overall, enthusiasm for this little campaign was low.  The campaign PDF gave almost no reason for either alien faction to be here, so given what we had to work with, I was glad to see some zeal from players on both sides of the alien aisle.  Thanks also to Graviton for your boundless enthusiasm, and apologies again that I could not play more.  Here’s one of the crazy reports I couldn’t post due to faction loyalties.

The next global campaign is coming from Beasts of War, and there is some interesting news.  Here are the notes and art from the first video batch, if you have not been following Corvus Belli’s channels.  The campaign starts in a few days.

Infinity Factions 2018, Artichoked

Game Theory, Smelly Humans

Here is my summer 2018 version of a popular article from last year—my rating of each faction and sectorial in Infinity.  As last time, I’ll deduct a point or two if the models are old, ugly, or out of production.  Of course, Infinity is much better balanced than many other wargames out there:  On a raw comparison, no faction should get less than 2/5 or 3/5.  But if I am going to give a faction a 5/5, then someone has to get a 1/5.  Here we go:
