What are all ways causing some beings to not want to play BattleTech games &or read BattleTech books? Amend them how?

Post by eLMsm »

What are all the ways that cause some beings to not want to play BattleTech games and/or read BattleTech books? What can we each do to amend all that? Here is a list of amendable ways as to why BT has not been desired by some hubeings:

1, lack of money; so have USA Congress pass a spending bill that shares some of my theoretical reward money of four to five quadrillion dollars to be divided equally amongst all USA hubeings in poverty (including me) and in middle class.
2, lack of time; so encourage USA Congress to provide more holidays.
3, some BT rules: are illogical and/or make no sense and must be removed, must be adjusted, must be in other book(s) , or must be included and published; thus encourage publishing of my rules and encourage publishing of some others’ rules do that dishonorable rules are not included so that honorable games can have accurate and adequate rules (honorable rules) for honorable playing.
4, drug addiction(s) perhaps including alcohol and/or tobacco, and so BT is perhaps interpreted as another addiction; copy left and share my ideas and other good ideas to quit said addictions.
5, no adequate transportation to store(s) and/or BT tournaments; provide more government transportations for public and private usages.
6, afraid of being disliked and/or nonfictionally wounded, kidnapped, killed, and/or stranded; establish an obligatory code of ethics and morals for all hubeings to play and/or affiliate with BT.
7, post traumatic stress disorder, and so BT could perhaps be interpreted as a reminder of trauma; avoid bloodshed and/or wounds violence in nonAToW games.
8, BT could perhaps be interpreted as a waste of natural resources (BT Writer Mike Stackpole somewhat communicated about that) ; encourage experimentation with and throughout BT products, and encourage the planting of one trillion trees.
9, BT could perhaps be interpreted as a threat to world peace and United Nations stability; omit dissolvement of the United Nations of BT books, and design somehow differing fictional BT events.
10, BT could perhaps cause stress that could cause some aging; encouraging breaks times from reading BT books and/or playing BT games.
11, some makings of BT items have been discontinued, and so BT is therefore perhaps interpreted as being very incomplete; update and republish them.
12, collections of BT conventional miniatures units are: way too heavy since they are made from metal; have miniatures made from hemp plastic.
13, no various BT dolls to play with; hire Mattel to make various BT dolls.
14, discontinuance of MechForce or at least discontinuance of MechForce North America; restart and update and recontinue MFNA.
15, other games and hobbies are more fun; try to encourage experimentation of BT products.
16 BT seems to have no clair skills and no magic spells skills; let’s get some very decent clair skills and some magic spells skills published for BT “A Time of War Administrative” “AToWA” Rulesbook.

viewtopic.php?t=19006

17, Some hubeings perhaps interpret BT as not worthwhile for money and job(s) and/or career(s) ; encourage BT hubeings to provide references for each of us and each other.
18, not enough teams playing at tournaments; let’s design or get some teams playing tournaments.
19, some BT miniatures each have one inch (2.54 cm) bases not 3 cm bases, same with map sheets ground hexes, while BT ground hexes are each to be thirty meters; let’s get design hemp plastic miniatures (new & old) with 3 cm bases, and let’s design mapsheets (new & old) with 3 cm hexes.

There are probably other ways that also cause hubeings to not want to play BT games and/or read BT books.

20, While each DefendingtheTruth.com Forum has an adjacent representational unique icon picture symbol, each official BattleTech Forum has an identical same ‘Mech picture symbol, and that causes beings to initially theorize BattleTech seems to mostly be a

Commonly
Utterliestly
Liking
Totalitarianism;

https://www.yourdictionary.com/cult

so let’s use my ideas and/or other idea(s) to decorate each official BattleTech Forum with a unique simple picture icon symbol each perhaps with one or more ASCII letters.

21. Each BT Rulesbook is referred to as a Rulebook that gets some hubeings to each initially theorize BT Rulebooks are each a very difficult to read multipages one rule in a book that is made to be a very time consuming and very competitive book to read; thus sometimes said Rulebooks don’t get opened to be comprehended as Rulesbooks each having numerous rules, and thus sometimes they each don’t get ordered for purchase; use “Rulesbook” word instead of “Rulebook”.

22. Some hubeings might interpret official BT website as a fishing and/or a SCAM scheme given all information beings must input necessarily for registering. To remedy that, I have to reply later.

23. Nonfictional aliens other worldsly beings species are not included; include them to ally with Inner Sphere and Periphery against the Clans.

Battletech (and any other game system) is like a paint color.
Not everyone likes pink, green or red.
No big deal.
People are more than welcome to seek out what they enjoy, where they enjoy it.
My Dad doesn't care for BattleTech; he enjoys baseball.
No big deal.
There is no logical reason that Battletech has to appeal to everyone. It can't.
As humans, we are made of 70%+ of water: but not everyone enjoys drinking water.
No big deal.

thus is the spice of life: go out and find something one likes.

Oh. I just thought Catalyst Game Labs perhaps could reset BT with adjustments and amendings for huge numbers of sales for huge amounts of money. As for your Dad not liking BT, perhaps he would enjoy using ‘Mechs in versions of “BattleTech Baseball” or “BetterTech Baseball”? :D :? Note that BetterTech is a nonfiction trademark of nonfiction business(es) named BetterTech.

after nearly 40 years in existence, the Owners and Producers really don't have sufficient incentive to reset all and restart.

Additionally, Games Workshop is a prime example of how even minor resets to the franchise can DRIVE AWAY long term fans.

Comprehended. Perhaps there could be another version of BattleTech Game System titled Other BattleTech that will be of “fictional” universe to use above amendigs to satisfy theoretically trillions of beings for theoretically quadrillions of dollars. :D

Amazing how there can be 'trillions' of BT fans...

There are only 7.97 Billion people on the planet, and BT is not published in every language.
Not to mention there are several countries where it would probably be banned for political reasons.

Are we counting ants now?

24. BT Rulesbooks’ top, underneath, left, and right margins have ridiculously repetitive pictures and/or words; omit all but one page of said pictures and said words, and use remaining margins for rules text and/or rules examples pictures and/or more other text and/or more other pictures.

You are correct. However, reusing the margin artwork is more cost efficient than inserting new art or more text.
It is a trade off of cost vs. artistic expression.

but you're not wrong.

Aside from new copyright registration fees and paying hubeings to make and put into computerized Rulesbooks archives new artworks and new text at margins, theoretically publishing them probably would not cost anymore than other pictures and text already on main parts of pages.

Perhaps instead of more complicated “Other BattleTech”, Classic BattleTech could have said more complicated rules, and there could be a another version of BattleTech titled “Alternative BattleTech” having less complicated rules.

it is called ALPHA STRIKE.
or
there is the "Introductory Tech" ruleset which does not track heat or internal slots: it is meant for Brand new players.

How about unlocking AToW(A) topic, that was recently locked, for players that want a way more thorough version of role playing warfare? How about CGL might want to publish a Rulesbook titled “Warfare Strikes” for players that want a less complicated BT RPG Rulesbook that could be compatible with Alpha Strike?

I wouldn't mind seeing them do away with everything from total war and get rid of those weapons but hey that's just me, lol

All seriousness though I just stuck with BT:MR revised and refuse to even acknowledge the TW rules.

Thankfully my group agreed and we are teaching new players the way of the master rules revised.

That's one thing I always loved about BT, we can use whatever rules we want at home.

25. Because BattleTech is made by taxable for profit business, tax exempt nonprofit businesses are prohibiting all BattleTech items and all communications about BattleTech from being within perimeters of said businesses. Thus sales of BattleTech items theoretically become less. Thus less royalties money for intellectual property rights owners of BattleTech. Restart BT so that the UN still exist and so that the Inner Sphere Houses and Periphery Affiliations are more directionally proportionally populated correspondencely accordingly to each current country’s 2022 population. Have the Clans still try to invade the Inner Sphere after invading the Rim Collection.

26. Some beings like more complicated rules; some (hu)beings like less complicated rules. Encourage each player to learn and play BT at each player’s own skills, respectively.

27. BT Rulesbooks have BT short stories making said Rulesbooks nonnecessarily bulkier, heavier, and more costly; take all BT short stories and put them in BT short stories books.

28. BT is mostly about warfare, and thus some hubeings could perhaps feel nonwelcome if they are civilians; try to provide at least more varieties of civilian opportunities for BT games while using text, pictures, and names of units classifications.
