Game updates: The Hobbit and Wild West Exodus
We just updated our game database. First we added the crowdfunded Wild West Exodus. Second we finally updated Lord of the Rings to become The Hobbit.
Wild West Exodus was crowdfunded on Kickstarter on March 19, 2013 and is the first game by Outlaw Miniatures. It's taking place in a unique Sci-Fi-Western scenario and features its own skirmish gaming techniques. Anybody remembering Marshall BraveStarr will know how it looks. ;-)
Games Workshop decided to move "The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game" into the "The Hobbit" world. We finally managed to take care of those changes. As it's not only a simple renaming, but also linked to changes in the supported factions, we decided to split the game into two army groups. One for each rule set. New tournaments added for "LotR/Hobbit" can choose what army selection should be applied. All existing past tournaments are now mapped to be the old LotR. The upcoming existing ones are set to what we could gather from their description. Organizers can change it, but have to take care of the changed armies for the signups.
In addition we tried to map all existing armies in the user profiles to the new Hobbit versions. So most LotR players now have a bunch of Hobbit armies in their profile. Everybody can simply update this selection in their account.
