The passing of John Tiller.

I'm inclined to agree with this as well. 




How about CA's announcement to bail on Three Kingdoms TW? That was this year wasn't it? Pissed-off a lot of loyal fans but is that even a story nowadays?  :brokenheart:

1.)  Probably doesn't count as a "wargaming story", since Three Kingdoms generally isn't considered a wargame. 

2.)  It's hardly the first time CA has screwed over its players, or even the only recent instance of them doing so (although it's perhaps the most blatant example in a while), so I'm not sure how newsworthy it is.  Unfortunately.  :(

Avalanche Press being dropped by retailer for content of one game.

How was this not a bigger story?

Even I didn't know this. Unfortunately, I have so little time to keep up with all the news, school stresses me a lot and I'm too much of a fucking moron to just read Tuesday Newsday each week.

The Avalanche Press I think that it is worthy. Even I didn't know this. Unfortunately, I have so little time to keep up with all the news, school stresses me a lot. I have a lot of homework and I can't get rid of it. And every week I should write a minimum of 2 essays and I can't always write them properly due to tiredness and lack of time. So, this is why I have started to use the review EssayEditor as it is the only service that works quickly but at the same time qualitatively and always helps me to get the highest marks on my essays.

That certainly was a big deal.

Did anyone find out anything more about it than "a distributor suddenly dropped Avalanche coincidentally after he published this one game"?

Maybe if Mike made a bigger deal about it there would have been a more public response?

I've been poking around at it a bit; nothing definitive enough to officially report on tho
