Champions Online: so bad Atari cannot afford color pictures

“According to our plans, the next book on the schedule was supposed to be The Champions Online Roleplaying Game. However, Atari, current owners of Cryptic, has changed the MMO’s marketing priorities and isn’t willing to provide us with the funding needed to do the book in the full-color fashion it requires. Since it’s not worth doing as a black-and-white book, we’re removing it from the schedule.

"Into its place we’re moving Champions Powers, the 6E version of the USPD. I’ll add to CP a section that would have gone into the CO RPG that provides pre-built versions of all of the CO powers, so gamers can easily re-create their online characters in the tabletop environment.”

Best quote:

“An RPG based on an MMO based on an RPG that already exists….WAIT WHA?”
 

The game is epic failing. And after Star Trek epic fails we can hope they'll go away for good.

I feel ya. At least they didn't base a card game on a MMO or make a pnp roleplaying game after Diablo. Man that would be epic. Epic something anyway. And since every game (including WoW) has been called epic failures by every little fellow who is trying to use the phrase as a pump for his e-peen, good on you I say. That out of the way it is pretty funny, but both Cryptic and Atari are on the STO bandwagon now because it ha a potenial bigger draw. Probably to Champs disadvantage. Gotta love those publishers.
