Correct the dice no longer have the flame. They had a small turnaround with the lawsuit from EA, so rather than delay anything they decided to remove the flame. This was all mentioned in the KS updates.

Ahh I thought that was only for the logo of the game. Understandable. Thankyou for replying.

I believe Brian said they were going to revisit the Flame dice again with the next KS. Don't hold me to it though...

That was such bull shit.
I mean REALLY?
EA has the rights to flames affiliated with letters?
That's as ridiculous as it gets.

Those are pretty slick.

MCG should use those next time around.

EA owned the rights to Mythic with flames in the Y.

It was a pretty close match, honestly, and they were well within their rights to protect the copyright.

And from what Brian said at the time they weren't sure to the extent that they'd have to remove the flame so to be safe they removed it from the dice. It turned out they didn't need to, but they erred on the side of caution.

Yeah, well I think CMON edges them out for worst company of the year this year.
So at least EA won't have it for, what, a third year running?

As others have already noted, EA does NOT hold copy right for flames over letters as MERCS originally implied. That was a category listing for EA's copy right of the Mythic logo. The Mythic logo was VERY similar to Myth. Copy right law treats board games and video games as being essentially the same market.

I'm not fan of EA, but they weren't the devil here.

Ah OK, didn't realize those were the full details.
I suppose in that case then they had no choice by to intervene as IP is use or lose.

Trademark, not copyright.

See my post here for the full breakdown of EA's trademark claim.

Well, Myth does borrow a font, that while public, has pretty strong ties to the Diablo franchise as well.
