I'm going to take it with a pinch (read: bucket) of salt, but if it is true... then I think it would be a mistake. Why change the mechanic? Why make it an RPG board game? Dice pools? Ability cards? It's ridiculous to change the game so much when there is already a fanbase going back more than twenty years. I can't believe it's true, but I'll reserve judgement until an official announcement.
I cannot believe this is true as written either Lots of discussion on the FFG forums as well on the subject (http://bit.ly/m00Xy). One one of the nicest things about v2 was how well they kept the mechanical look of v1. While the game has a different feel, the look is really the same. Swapping that out for something radically new would be bad IMHO.Like everyone, I guess I will just wait and see. Hopefully there will be a GenCon announcement.
I'm not 100% sold on it, either, but if true, I'm not quite sure why they'd go that way. Guess we'll see.
