Titans of Steel and Titans of Steel: Warring Suns
After an anonymous IP edited the Titans of Steel article a few days ago claiming the game was related to MechForce (Video Game), I have decided to put this issue to bed. I once had a physical copy of Titans of Steel: Warring Suns and can confirm that the game mechanics seem to very much be derived from the BT rule set but it is not related universe wise.
I have spent a few hours researching the game today and have found a copy of the credits list for the game and it shares no personnel with the MechForce game nor does it appear to be linked in any way to BT in anything other than game mechanics. Although available for free now between 2003 and 2009 the game was being sold as a commercial venture. As such this makes the game at best unrelated or at worst possibly borderline IP theft since it borrows so heavily from the BT rules.
To make matters worse Sarna seems to be one of the top google hits when you search for ToS. I am going to be deleting the article as ToS and ToS:WS have no direct links to BattleTech and as such have no place on sarna.--Dmon (talk) 11:10, 6 January 2020 (EST)
