Too much ASL for me in this one. Even more than issue 1 and 2.

I thought this was going to be a house magazine? This is the 3rd edition with an overload of ASL content. No doubt attractive to those that play ASL. The crossover of ASL players to non ASL titles must be very high.

But not really justified if I am looking for articles on OCS, The Gamers titles or any other MMP titles.

Nothing on the GTS system?

Now you've got me interested, Bill. The game is the only reason I'd buy this. Would you say that it's worth the price in and of itself?

Well Kev, you can only print the material that is available. If you only have ASL-stuff, well, that's it.

I remember an earlier edition where they ask for material from gamers / readers for gamers / readers.

Wolfgang,
There was a call for articles?
That is a shame that the community is not supporting the magazine. I would have hoped that the designers, play testers, and player community would chip in.
I've written for some of the publisher mags when asked to, not for MMP however. Given the # of players out there and good AARS I am surprised they can't get some solid content. How many copies do they make/print?

Wait 'til you get the mag. At least there should be a contact address if they didn't ask for articles again. I assume some don't want to go thru the hassle sending in articles an waiting for seeing it gettin' printed.

I would love to see articles that help new players get into OCS f. ex. Something like OCS 101. Or an AAR where one can follow a series of moves / turns of a game.

Also I'm not sure about their terms-of-trade so to say. I know that there are companies that call it "exclusive content" once they agree to publish it and you are not allowed to post it f. ex. on the geek or your own webside. This might be a hindrance but as said I don't know MMPs policy here.

Alas, I would love to see the mag prosper like the GMT one. Love to get my errata-counters with a mag and no DYO.
