wow. what's even the point of this thread? seems like an unnecessarily negative post. (yes, i'm diluting). i get that some folks are disappointed, but it's no surprise that this happened (why else go back to the drawing board if not to totally revamp?). also, FFG's, and card games in general, are most successful when competitive.
rather then clog up the boards with this disappointment/negativity, why not leave to to those who are interested and want to discuss the game we are getting -- not rant about what we are not? i highly doubt this thread will spur FFG to go back to the drawing board a 3rd time.
besides, a message board system is hardly a scientific, randomized, representative poll of gamers.
