"Cold War Game" a "Wargme European Escalation" rip-off?

Postby Ivan le Fou » Thu 25 Apr 2019 15:44

This has been circulating quite a few on various Wargame dedicated groups on Fb since yestarday.

The reddit group (https://www.reddit.com/r/wargame/commen ... l_trailer/) presents it as a sort of initiative taken by some of the most significant players of the wargame community ... aiming to become a resource that's tuned to players views, with ongoing support and development. That it exists at all is down to unpaid fans making efforts to realise it - over time it will become better than the original game based on expertise from players.

Is it a legit thing endorsed by Eugen?

Mechanics and ideas can't be copyrighted, if it interests you, follow it! Don't worry about if it "rips off" or not!

Thx. I'm very curious what this can be.
Hopefully is not just a cheap copy of the WG:EE...

Even if it 'borrowed' some of the ideas and mechanics, I hope they can introduce something new as well. In that case, I have zero problems with it and will give it a shot.
