If anything, they’ve made things worse. Go read the “beta” versions of the rules on the Wizard forum, they are free, better than the published garbage, and include good changes that the a**wipes at Wizards decided to leave out while putting in BAD changes like grazing fire that the community was telling them to leave out. The “Wizards” don’t have a clue when it comes to making a war game it seems.

Expanded Rules: Major Disappoinment
It seems like the powers at AH/Wizards went through the beta Expandand rules that we all tested here, picked out most of the worst points and left out the best.
What happened to mono-national armies getting more that 15 figs per 100 pts? Why did the Chinesee “platoon” go from 5 rifles, an MG, and officer to TEN rifles. I mean that’s 26 points if I remember correctly and THEN you have to fill the “army” out with only three more figures. This is just one example of the lunacy in the sample platoons. They seem DESIGNED to sell more figures rather than make “unplayable” figures “playable” But why should I be surprised about that from the people who crushed the card and wargame world with their iron fist of greed?
You guys aren’t “Wizards” of the coast. You are “Idiots” of the coast. I could have done a better job CHEAPER if I had published this at Cafe Press. It’s SUBSTANDARD, SHODDY, and it SICKENS me!
I assume you are going to sell us “big” hex maps 1-4 in the “new” boxed set. Don’t bother, you are going to lose your base customer with this abomination anyway.
Your “in house” beta tester(s)" are either too busy playing Magic to care or just can’t find their a** with both hands.
The old AH games may have had some faults but they published errata that ACTUALLY FIXED problems. You guys are clueless. You actually succeeded in making the game MORE broken by putting in things like the grazing fire rule that most of the online “testers” were telling you was a BAD THING.
I’m probably done buying your junk. I’ve been buying AH products and other games from the companies you gobbled up since the 70s and I had HIGH HOPES that you were buying a clue with the online beta rules for this game and the modifications to the COMPLETELY BROKEN naval miniatures game.
I give up. Nothing short of boxes of free figures will make me feel like you haven’t just STOLEN $20 from me for these “rules.” I’ve spent THOUSANDS of dollars on my hobby with AH and hundreds on this “game” alone. :eek: Consider that substracted from the bottom line when doing your P and L projections in the future.
Give me a reason to not hand it all over to my 7 year old and left him go wild with it. I could sell it on ebay but I don’t want to foist this DOG on some poor soul who could spend his money on a actual game instead of the game construction kits you are selling. Aren’t you embarrassed by the popularity of HHR? Doesn’t your consumer feedback tell you that people are buying the naval figures and just using them with other rules sets? Is there any coffee there which you can wake up and smell?
I’ll copy this post to other A&A forums so that it can be read after the forum Nazi’s delete it and ban me.
