Overall- on many of levels i'm enjoying the new LCG game more than the Decipher CCG:
Battling is encourgaged- your opponent can't constantly run away from you.
Decks can be constructed quickly.
The cards are more balanced. Introducing the objective cards- makes you play with cards you may not have.
And the big one…price.
I invested alot in the Decipher game. I probably have enough extra cards to wallpaper a room with.
I remember back in the 90s.. when i used to complain on the Decipher message boards about buying several booster boxes to complete the sets.
It was a huge waste to spend money on extra cards that you weren't going to use.
I remember suggesting fixed packs so you only had to purchase them once.
People argued against the idea because they said they liked 'opening packs to see what they got'.
Granted, there was a certain excitment when you pullled a rare Vader, but it was equally depressing when you pulled a rare that you didn't want or need.
Well, we know what happened to Decipher.
So hats off to the people at Fantasy Flight that realized change was needed!
