  1. I truly do understand your frustration, as "rule lawyers" are never much fun to play with. If this is his general approach, be prepared for some very un-fun times, as there are many, many situations in FFG's writing style of rules, cards, etc. for this game that are not 100% clear, or "explicitly stated" as you reference. It often takes a flexible mind, much patience, and REASONABLE people/discussions to get the most out of the game. Quite frankly, this is specifically why Sadgit's CRRG is such a big help; we knew we could not rely on FFG, so we created a fan made extensive rules guide.
  2. ^--- This. It works very well, achieves the same thing as a large blocking monster, leaving you with multiple monsters to attack with (instead of one). In addition, it helps you slow down heroes, which often is all you need to do (especially in the Shadow Rune campaign).
  3. Cockroaches. Make the minis out of Cockroaches. Then they can move themselves as well as outlast us after THE BIG ONE !
  4. To be honest, I don't care how they achieve the following, but I think it needs to happen for this game to continue: We need new official cards (of existing cards) that reflect all of the updated errata, FAQs, etc. As this game continues to grow, its complexity, and the potential for poorly designed ships, pilots, upgrades, etc., will grow as well. I don't want to have to carry around or even have to reference a 500 page FAQ to determine the **** rules for the game, rules for cards, etc. FFG has spoken in the past of how they absolutely will not release just card packs. Fine. But find a way to achieve the same result, or I feel they will lose many players, myself included. Can you even imagine if this game does last 5-10 years in its current state, without a 2.0 version, etc. the amount of errata you would potentially have to know? EDIT: Alternatively, I would also find it acceptable if they simply will allow us to utilize fan made cards that exist to achieve the same result.
  5. I think the better question is if the EARTH (and us to play the game) will be around in 5, 10, 20 years? There sure seem to be some bad actors in this world that want to make sure that we don't get to say "PewPewPew" for much longer.
  6. You aren't missing anything. It has been something many of us have asked for, including direct e-mails to FFG support, forever. - Feature to allow you to SAVE whenever the *&^% you want to - Feature to allow you to UNDO whenever the *&^% you want to Some have expressed concern that if some of these features were built in, then users could choose to "game the system" and win inappropriately. Who cares? If they need to win badly enough to do that, let them. How does that possibly negate the need for these features when honest mistakes are made? I never understood this defense for not having the features. To be honest, it doesn't surprise me that IA has some of them. One ... FFG apparently can learn from their mistakes. Two ... Star Wars crap has far, far more visibility, and they probably didn't want all of these complaints going viral ... EDIT: Normally, I would say something along the lines of ... the app for D2e has been out long enough that FFG could have addressed the issues and added these features ..., but it is readily apparent that they do not care about this product anymore, so I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it to occur ...
  7. ^--- This. 'Nuff said.
  8. Yes ... scarcity ... like how FFG cares about this game (still waiting for Quest Vault and FAQ to be updated).
  9. See the rules on page 21, under Choose Next Quest, and the subsequent paragraphs for how a campaign proceeds in terms of which quests are chosen.
  10. First, I want to thank you for your efforts on our behalf. Given the number of errata and hard changes to cards, etc., it has become increasingly difficult to keep it all straight. I am anxious to get my hands on your newest updates. I am curious as to how your progress is going? Thanks in advance for the update.
  11. WHEN (not if) she gets that 1st tournament victory, I think you should take her to a nice dinner and celebrate !
  12. I contacted CSI this afternoon about my GFH, and to question why their site still showed it as not available. The gentlemen that answered the phone said that their entire X-Wing shipment was sent to another vendor by mistake. They have been working on getting it sent back to them. He had no idea when this might happen. Soooo frustrating ...
  13. I personally feel that it has become quite clear that save for some digital development, FFG no longer cares about the physical product of D2e, nor do they care about the Quest Vault. They haven't even bothered to update their own FAQ in nearly 2 years. Right now, if the name of the game does not begin with "Star Wars ...", there is no support, time invested, etc. I laugh when I read over on the X-Wing forum that players are pissed that it has been 1 MONTH waiting for an FAQ update.
  14. While I certainly have not delved into the code by any means, this seems to not be the case. I have played hundreds of hours of RTL, and anecdotally, I can definitely state that the items that I have been offered, and the price at which they have been discounted has been directly related to the level of fame that I have. Now, as I said, I haven't seen the code, nor have I performed an exhaustive test, but this is what I have personally experienced. YMMV.
  15. You will find that as your fame increases, you will often be offered items in the shop at a discount ... some of them significantly so ...
