This will be short, sweet and to the point.
Lately, in the wake of GenCon, I've been hearing a lot of talk about the LCG model. I even heard the CEO of FFG talk about the model in the In-Flight Report. One of the strengths of the model is that players don't have to purchase every single pack. With tools like CardgameDB, you just need to look for the cards you want to play with and then purchase those specific packs that include those cards. It's a great model ... in theory.
With most of the LCGs, you can pick a specific faction or deck archetype and go forward with it, cherry picking the best cards for your dream deck. With Star Wars (and Netrunner) you are obligated to play two different decks. Suddenly, you can't just focus on one tactic or one faction. Instead, you have to focus on building two premium decks. The chances of finding the cards you want for both decks in the same pack are pretty slim, in my opinion. It's kind of a bummer.
As an example, if I were to pick up Warhammer 40K: Conquest, I would focus on the Tau as my main deck and pick up cards that support their play style. For Star Wars, I want a bounty hunter deck. But if I want to play in tournaments, I am forced to pick a Light Side faction and build a good deck for that one as well.
In all seriousness, this doesn't affect me much because I plan on collecting all the cards (albeit, at a slower rate than some). And before people start saying how cheap LCGs are, yeah, I get that. But when you want a piece of X-Wing, a piece of SW:TCG, and the new Imperial Assault, sometimes you just can't get all the LCG cards as soon as they release.
