We're back...and so is Heroscape!

Posted June 12th, 2023 at 09:52 AM by truth
We apologize for the long downtime. We had a server failure and our efforts to restore the service kept getting stymied by issue after issue, most of it not within our control. If you followed the status page while we were down you know some of the story. The important things now are that:
  • we are back and there was no data loss, and
  • we're putting a plan in place to try to ensure this sort of thing doesn't happen again.
Part of the plan will involve us moving to a new hosting provider. Details of exactly when are TBD, but "soon."

All of the aside the really big news is that

Heroscape is back!

On June 8th, Renegade Game Studios announced that they are picking up the Heroscape license and will be bringing the game back! Details are still sketchy, but you can read the press release. Time to get hyped!!!

Not sure if I should be more excited the site is back after so long or that Heroscape is back after even longer :thinking:

I'm going to go with the latter.

Really glad Heroscapers is back up. Thank you for all of the effort it took to getting the community back online. This may seem pessimistic, but AoA/Hasbro put a very bad taste in my mouth. Needless to say I am not holding my breath with the Renegade announcement or what it may look like if it does come to fruition.

Glad to see the site back up w/out any data loss

I donít know much about Renegade, but hopefully they approach the ip less cynically than Hasbro did with the crowdfunding-or-bust stunt they did. Even if this new comeback is official and successful, AoA will forever be shrouded in mystery and what-ifs

It’s great the site is back up.
I was quite intrigued about the news of the new Agreement between Renegade and Hasbro. It will be interesting to see what will come from this License Agreement. I can not wait to see what we will get as the new Heroscape is Released!

Welcome back! Was not the best time to be down during huge announcement and planning for tournaments including ScapeCon, but that just makes us appreciate it more.

Wonderfully surprising news. I must say, I am way more cautiously optimistic this time around, alas I trust Renegade a lot from my experience in board gaming and hope to get vastly excited as more news comes.
