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:
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.
I am not on Facebook, and am out-of-the-loop on Tohaa plans. During the last two campaigns, the leadership of the international Tohaa players decided to ally with Nomads, Ariadna, and Haqqislam, in an effort of perpetual revenge against Yu Jing, who attacked us and seized our hospital on Paradiso. This year presents another opportunity for a new direction, although, being that Yu Jing is disheartened and weakened, we have opportunity to punish them further. Can anyone tell me the plan?
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:
Infinity players like to believe that Infinity is perfectly balanced. We’ve met or watched or posted with staff like Bostria, HellLois, and Gutier, and we’ve played horribly imbalanced games like X-Wing and 40K, and this game and its creators just feel better. But, if the ITS statistics are anything to go by, and the salt of the forum, and my personal experience, it is most definitely false that all factions are created equal. This is the S-Tier, these are my top 3 Infinity factions.
