Hello,

I doubt many of you remember me. But to the few that do, hello again.

Apologies, as this may be a bit of a long rambling post.

I recently logged-in after 2 months or so and got an Odin Striker J-VI through a regular pull. I realized I had no idea what the value of the card was or how it would fit into my lineup. But I also came to the realization that I haven't played a competitive event in close to a year. So most of my cards are outdated and hold only sentimental value, if any.

But I do drop by this forum on a semi-regular basis and kind of makes me happy that people still play this game and that it is tight knit community. After leaving FF and Gameview, I have been working on GIJOE-Battleground for more than a year now, and occasionally on Super Battle Tactics . I am currently working on a super cool project that is very hush hush. I am not trying to brag or give my resume here, just that that this single project started my career in gaming, and that I have you guys, the players to thank for it in some part. So once again, thanks ! Smile

But this is just not rambling, I have a ton of old cards and quite a few good cards. I had all four CXB bots, and the CXB-Ashmaker has part of my name in it.  Very Happy  But the CXBs are nerfed, so they have only sentimental value.

So that being said, I want to give away most of my characters.

So, Arthainius, legendslayer contact me, I'll arrange to have my characters given out. I would prefer to have regular members of the forum/game get the characters equally divided amongst themselves. I'll leave the details to you guys.




Also I thought, I'd share the original art of the Leader characters that appeared when the game was initially launched.

Also, there seems to a misunderstanding, so I'll clear that up too. I did the LINE art and the character designs for all the original characters when the game was launched and later on all the poses/designs of the characters. The later characters after sept 2012 were drawn by other artists, I only did their poses. Also the main colourist for a vast majority of the characters was the fantastic Sabine Rich : http://sabinerich.deviantart.com/


The colours for all of these characters below is done by Sabine Rich, with a little touches by CXB or other inhouse artist.

 



Angel eyes as I drew her, the old comic style of colouring and later when she was updated with the new Leaders in a more painterly style.


   




Marcus was originally supposed to an extra playable leader character, that changed. Notice the similar floating hologram he shares in common with Angel Eyes. So here is revised line art, and the original green colour scheme and how he looks now.

 



Engineer Watson too was originally supposed to an extra playable leader character, that changed. I originally drew him as a more military looking guy, but CXB wanted more futuristic look, so I revised the line art, how he looks now. Sort-of.




 



Alvin as I drew him, and his original colour, but CXB made his gun shorter, as he appeared in game. ( I hadn't quite figured out the optimal sizes in those early days)



   



Boomstick was originally drawn with a vizor/canopy over his head, CXB changed that and the final colour pose was also changed a bit to make him fit on to the pedestal. (Those were very early days.)


 



Brody as originally drawn and coloured, again his gun shortened to make him fit better on the pedestal.



 

Duke had the least amount of changes, CXB gave him the sparse beard. I had him with a full-er beard.



   



Elliot was fun to draw, again the final version had the gun barrel shortened.



 



I had drawn Jade with a vizor and a face, it was CXB's idea to give her a mask. It changed her character for the better, and I added to that change when I made the revised version with a green color scheme, with the original orange accents. Wink


 

Jessie as I had originally drawn him. His pistol was a tad shorter in-game. ( it was barely noticeable)


   



Mean Mary took less time than I had imagined. Despite her detailed line art, she was done very fast and the final version  had only the gun barrel changed.

Thanks. Wink

Just keep all your mercs. Someone feel free to correct me, but, there aren't many new players and it seems as though we are losing more and more players across the board. I basically retired by trading for a silly team of flying Ls which I now lend to people.

Generally your posts make me wish that I had found this game sooner as it always sounds like I missed out on the golden days of FF.

10/10 post

I love the little background insights you can share about working for Gameview. This thread is making me super nostalgic. Anything else you could share would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Dan, people complained in the golden days just as much as they do now.

The original link for the line art of the Mary seems corrupted. So a new link.

Very cool. Angel Eyes looks great in hi-res! It's a shame this game only has such a niche following, a lot of the art for it is great and would fit right in with big-budget titles. You will have to let us know when your hush-hush project launches so we can support you there as well.

As for the give away, I recommend getting in touch with Zoar1984 about it. He heads up one of the larger teams on the forum here and would be a prime candidate for being able to take care of giving away the mercs. A lot of their players are free-to-play and could still make good use of some of the oldies.

Really cool post. I'd keep the trophy collection. With the game in its current state almost anything non L is worthless. Very few exceptions.

Pretty sure Zoar is retired at the moment.

Non worthless Es are the usual suspects: Mord, Niobe, Golem, Incin, Masked Ronin, Hardened Shield, Stallion....

I am retired but I still pop-up here and there. Hep is another good contact or just post on the next TFB thread that you see over in the Events section. But to second the above posts the active player base is so small that everyone has all the mercs that they need. So values for 90% of the mercs are next to nothing. The game needs new players to increase the demand for the non-top tier mercs, and that is just not happening...

Its weird cause BB cant get new players either. Both are good games. Did game ever fully recover after the mass banning? Also did we ever find out why so many were banned? I heard a million stories but was anything ever actually tied together?

Well, it is sad, but thanks for the clarification.

Here, the very first RAID BOSS event cards.

BONE CRUSHER


CANNON COMMAND


DIE BORG


FERAL FRAULIN


LOVE GUN


MADAM MERC


MATURE BRAIN EATER


REAPER ELITE


After these guys, I joined the company inhouse and almost all the lineart was digital. These were done old school, PEN on paper and scanned ! Smile
Bone Crusher remains my favourite to this day ! And he was uncommon to boot !
I had drawn 150+ characters by then and when these guys were done and I really took my time with Bonecrusher.

Sad that very few people participated in the first event, and most players will never see any of these guys.

@AtomicHermit: This is one of my problems with the game. So much time would have gone into doing up all the art for the c and uc mercs, this probably applies to rs as well, and no one gives half of it a second glance.

I can admit to making trades for res to acquire 2 mercs for the art. Cost me 40 and 300 ac.

Atomic, always knew you had awesome talent and the content shared above certainly shines. It's amazing that many of the drawings have only cosmetic changes before getting approved for deployment - KUDOS!

I'm not playing much either these days. Too many real life challenges are at the forefront so I would suggest you hang onto your memorabilia. Generally my gaming is to pop in periodically and land a 200 - 300 ranking for some of the low hanging fruit.
