It would be awesome, but who would do it? And how, I dont know all that much about these worldwide campaigns... So if I would do it, I would at least need a instructor, and in which section of the Forum would that fit in, how would the players participate?

I could do it if people want it, but I would need help, or at least during the start...

I think abbadon missing a planet automatically counts as an imperial victory

Don't forget for Medusa V, GW heavily relied on gamers having their battle then posting the results to the Medusa V website (later wiped from existense rather strange dont you think) so GW could compile results, as well as instore games.

How do you safeguard yourself from idiots making multiple accounts and spamming fake results so the Imperium has to win, it had potential, it had a good setup, it had a good storyline...but they fucked it, nough said.

If they do set up another worldwide campaign it will be interesting to see how GW deal with it and if the 'good guys' win yet again

The Eye of Terror Campaign was a fairly solid victory for Chaos. Sure, the Imperium did finally manage to seal off the breach as much as possible (re: push a lot of the invading forces back into the Eye) and Abaddon failed to claim his ultimate prize, Cadia, but for the first time in that sector of space, Chaos has a secure foothold and now possesses and has fortified a number of planets in real space around the Cadian system. Indeed, Typhus as actually fully 'nurgilised' a planet to rule as his own if I remember correctly.

Of course there's a caveat, only the players who took part or were around at the time will know this. The current 40k timeline actually ends at the start of the 13th Black Crusade (the Eye of Terror campaign) so technically- it hasn't happened yet as Games Workshop only want to go backwards and 'fill in the gaps' these days. Which is a shame as it advanced the fluff quite nicely, in addition to Chaos gaining a real foothold in Imperial Space:

-The Dark Angels and Space Wolves finally 'get over it' as the chapter masters learn to play nicely.

-Eldrad dies, his soul sucked into one of Abaddon's Blackstone Fortresses (IIRC, they're also known as the Talismans of Vaul and are in fact, necron constructs).

-some other minor stuff I can't remember Oh, and I believe Creed is made Planetary Governor of Cadia.


As for a Heresy Online campaign- I'd really be up for that. However, I know other forums have tried it in the past and they've been mediocre at best- too much enthusiasm to get it done quickly. If say, year was spent actually making everything and getting the system in place, and then enthusiasm was generated for it say a couple of months before it was due to start, I reckon it would work! I could only take part in a player format, too many RL commitments at the moment I'm afraid!

Cheers,

El

I remember them saying that the eye of terror game would make a difference to future releases and would advance the game further for everyone.

obvious BS of course.

That being said, Medusa V was a farce.

Let's nuke it from space! It's the only way to be sure...

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...
