Ok, so here are some of my ideas that I was discussing with my brother for what they are worth.
The concept of the objective sets (OS) may in time prove to be a cool idea however right now I don't see the point. The reason is that I guess I expected much greater synergy with the objective and the cards in the set. Right now it seems more to be a way to force players to build deck with certain less stronger cards or to force a mix of certain card types (for example, you could not make an all unit deck because there just are not OS that are like that). So, I am curious to see how this plays out and I truly hope that there is a greater plan and we will see more cohesiveness with the future OS between the cards in them and inter-synergy between OSes that are similiar in nature.
I had a thought on the concept of open play. For example, my brother and I were discussing having a house rule where you did not have to follow the rule of OS. You will still have to resource match but you would not be limited to have to take all the cards in an OS but could mix and match. This would be for fun only but the idea kind of got me thinking.
What if FFG decided to have a two tier system for their tournaments. Where tier ONE would be everything as it is in the rules (and the upcoming tournament rules). This would be where the big prizes were for sure. Then have a tier TWO where we could follow the OPEN PLAY concept and the objective set rule for deck building is removed. The winner here might inspire some future combinations of OS seeing what type of cards this person was able to pull together from the complete availability of cards on that side (or that affiliation). Again, this is just tossing out an idea for fun.
I have seen that it appears that multiplayer will be multiple LS against a super DS player (or automated player). I think this is a left over concept from the fact that the game was going to be a cooperative game to begin with and I am not super keen on this. It may work and I am totally liking the concept of multiplayer. But I would much prefer to see that the rules incorporate a MATCHING amount of LS and DS players (ie 2 LS against 2 DS and so forth). Of course, whatever they do, we will use and have fun with.
Anyway, jsut some thoughts. What does everyone else think. I am sure that some will like my ideas (we will call them Light Side people) and some will not (we will call them Dark Side people) … LOL!!!
