Among the excitement waiting on Twin Shadows to be released, I think I glossed over the news release from FFG about Return to Hoth!

Quote:
Meanwhile, four new skirmish missions bring your forces to the icy expanses of Hoth and new rules for four-player skirmish games invite you to experience massive, multi-fronted skirmishes with up to three opponents!

Wait, what? That is sheer epicness!

I'm kind of surprised this hasn't generated any buzz yet. I noticed it right off the bat.

We already play 4 player skirmish, we played a lot of four player Heroclix so it wasn't hard to play this way.

While I've seen plenty of home-brew 4 player ideas, of varying levels of complexity, that doesn't really mean that official rules and scenarios are any less of a good thing.

I do suspect that the home-brew rules are partly responsible for this not having been a big hot topic. They probably satisfy the non OP players to a certain degree, and OP chat seems to have focussed on other things, possibly as whether 4 way becomes a big thing OP wise is less than certain.
