  1. Also, adding to the confusion, you get three of them in Dynasty packs because.... why?
  2. So, I don’t play Destiny, but I’m a bit confused by the griping on this thread. - The Starter has a bunch of new, exclusive cards you can use in constructed. - If you buy packs, this is fun and interactive way to do what you do anyway. Just buy less packs outside of this mode and you’ll be spending the same amount of money. - The drafting element adds some “insta-trading” - choice as to what you get in your packs. (Though I kinda wish they’d have players return all cards at the end and then do an additional draft for your collection - as what’s good for your deck and collection may differ.) - The addition of drafting rules lets you create your own “packs” in baggies and run your own drafts with just your collection. (If you don’t want to buy a bunch of draft starters, you can find another way to supplement.) If you ever buy packs, you can roll them in to the experience. - The meta of this game doesn’t sound great. I don’t like collectible games. I wouldn’t ever play this game, until now. I love draft in games. I like that all I need to do is buy a starter for bits and a draft pack and I’m good to go. If I went in, I would rarely buy packs outside of draft and use my collection, eventually, to run my own “drafts.”
  3. But if the person to the right of you gets two legendaries, they give you one. This doesn't hurt your chances of getting a legendary.
  4. I’m loyal to a clan just because I have a job, a life, love these kinds of games - but they can consume my brain. Sticking to one clan shrinks my card pool. Besides, there are often prizes for best-in-clan anyway.
  5. If they say one thing, and you say another, you’re both holding a position. It takes two to rules lawyer.
  6. Are those two roles perpetual, or just at Winter Court and the unnamed store event? Most people I play with build tournament-legal decks for casual play, as it’s kinda like training.
  7. I'm just trying to make sense of all this, so, correct me if I'm wrong. Currently, any clan can use any roll. After Winter Court 2017, each clan will be bonded to a single roll. At each specific event, clan roll choices may vary. At Winter Court 2017, each clan has one roll to choose from. At Court of the Dragon Clan in 2017, each clan can choose from the Winter Court 2017 roll or the new roll chosen at Winter Court 2017. At Winter Court 2018, and an unnamed store event, each clan will have two rolls to choose from, one from Winter Court 2017 and one from the Kotei series. Here's some links that I used to help figure that out. I have little confidence that I actually got it entirely right. "For the very first Winter Court World Championship this November, players must use the role chosen for their clan at the Kiku Matsuri preview event, as decreed below." https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/op/l5r-lcg/roles/ "Of course, you’ll want to know exactly what you’re choosing between if you’re selecting a Keeper role or a Seeker role for your clan. Below, you can find the fourteen clan-specific Keeper and Seeker cards of this cycle. After the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game World Championships is complete, only one of these cards will be legal for your clan to use until the next World Championships. Review your chosen clan’s options below, and prepare yourself for the great tournament at the FFG World Championships!" https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/10/11/the-imperial-cycle/ "Elemental Points will determine which additional elemental role a clan gains access to for use at two important events: the Winter Court World Championship, and an in-store event leading up to it. Each Kotei participant has the privilege of casting a vote for which additional role their clan should pursue, which will affect the Elemental Points earned by each clan at the end of the Toshi Ranbo Season." https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/op/l5r-lcg/kotei/ "The departing Court of the Dragon Clan tournament on Sunday allows competitors to use their clan’s new or previous elemental role..." https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/op/l5r-lcg/winter-court/
  8. I’m down. Might start doing this with my friends when we play... or at restaurants. Just whenever.

  10. I’m not an expert, but my ten minutes of googling revealed the word is used in multiple contexts (military, sporting events, being drunk apparently) in Japan. Also, the wording of the post doesn’t seem that FFG is changing it for their sake. Instead, they talk about “historical incidents.” So, I assume they are referring to WWII, and Allies who fought Japanese. Meaning, they are removing the chant for the sake of Allies and not Japanese. Most allied countries are on pretty good terms with Japan now. In this circumstance, not saying “banzai” seems like saying “freedom fries” because you don’t like the French. This seems unnecessarily salty. (Unintentional pun!)
  11. I hope it’s a drought. It would be nice for the meta to settle down a bit. I think monthly releases are too often and would actually prefer big-box expansions only.
  12. I had the same thought. It would be neat, but I wonder if that would thin out the pool even more. We already have seven clans. Perhaps you could splash with one major clan and one minor clan. Or maybe the minor clans would splash into the Dynasty deck or something.
  13. Good to know! That makes them feel less valuable to me
  14. I inquired at FFG about getting my hands on Daoloth and Shub-Niggurath, and apparently they do not sell them or give them out. The rep at FFG suggested I post here and ask if anyone has any extras from conventions Let me know if you do! I'd be happy to pay S&H and a little extra
  15. I think the best part about it is that you just get to actually buy fun things, like allies, without feeling like you are making a bad move! I would always want to, but then get that, "No... you should save it..." kinda feeling. Felt much like wanting to spend all your birthday money but then deciding to put it into savings... not very fun for a board game
