Bryan.. it's not you its us.
With this development, this game, we are joining the latest evolution of the grand arena, and most important, the story. We are to be the parallel stories of the inner sphere, and eventually clans, the unwritten plays and events that occur on hosts of worlds that will develop into the tales told around nerd gaming tables, chat rooms, and forums for decades to come.
What the devs have said is that we cannot cling to the teats of other units that have had their stories told over and over again. Who really would want to? If you can stand with a candle in the dark you are a light, small perhaps but visible, useful, and bright from a distance. A candle flame under the glare of the sun is invisible.
To follow a path so worn leads you always where other have been, and none will notice your footprints as they travel along with you ladies and gentlemen. My belief is that the fan base herein is made of sterner stuff, grasping to be remembered, like Bedford, and Exeter,Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester, like Henry, G. Patton, Bradley, Nimitz. People of such will, are remembered for moving mountains on their own, under their own banner, for their own country and fellows.
In my best, Say I, Get thee on with making moniker, seal, and sigil
Create for thyself a kingdom of brothers,
true and good to the name you place upon it
and lay low all those before you who would do it harm
cry they, thy name, in bloody rasp
weeping for their fear of uttering it.
Bryan, we love you back.
