  1. Thanks

    Agreed. I'm working under the assumption this is now the last cycle. We've had a great run and let's face it, there is years worth of gameplay out there. Hate to be negative, but FFGs attitude to restocking is now so poor, that I think they want to wind it down and focus on new stuff. Just to say, that if it is the last cycle, ending in Mordor is good. Maybe we get to fight the Dark Lord (an unwinnable battle surely) maybe as a distraction as Frodo and Sam cross Mordor?

    Yeah, at first glance the game doesn't seem very deep. But hey it's transformers. And thank god they didn't go with michael bay movie stills.
    I just want my CCGs based on 80s cartoons dammit!  (Still sad we never got that G.I.Joe card game)

    I’m doing both.  I’ll buy the starter for Keyforge (or just 2 decks).
    Ill buy a starter and X boosters.  X = until I get Starscream and some Jets.
    i think game play, edge Keyforge, collectibility is Transformers.  
    So I say do both!

    Same here, except starter and 4 keyforge decks and I'll be going for Dinobots.

    Funny thing: Keyforge is by Richard Garfield and it uses "Exhausted". While Transformers uses "Tap".
    Guess Hasbro/WOTC owns the trademarked term and not Garfield. It still feels odd seeing a new CCG use the term "tap".

    What's your end goal? If tournaments and intense league play are your thing... nobody knows how big this will end up being in that area. This game is just too new and different for anyone to have any solid information here.
    For casual play, you can use the handicap system, which I presume will be assisted by the companion app, to balance out deck strength differences. Which I haven't noticed to be too great (no deck winning more than 2/3 of its games, no matter what opposing deck it faces, or losing more than 1/3 of its games.)

    Beauty of this game is that you can play both (if you have the time). Buy just one or two decks and this is easily playable alongside a more costly ccg/tcg like Transformers.

    Darthvegeta800 got a reaction from Robin Graves in What does this mean for LCGs?   
    Eh I never got into AoS as I'm an old world fan. (big on Mordheim and the Black Library novels like Archaon, Malus Darkblade, Brunner and the Bretonnia trilogy) but why i thought AoS was dead in the water i'm actually seeing a slow rise.
    The wargaming hobby is nearly dead over here. (me and my buddy dabble in many systems and play Mordheim with a few friends but the traditionals seemed dead) But AoS is actually on the rise.
    And in a way I do appreciate the system... somewhat. Not my thing but people are having fun with it. And they're buying kits which is good for local activity and the local store.
    So... i'm looking at it more positive than before.
     
    As for ending the current LCG lines. I've been collecting the LCG Lotr game (i already stopped with the SW one as well... i loved the art but it lacked something). If they announced tomorrow they're ending the Lotr LCG I will not even mind. They got tons of quests and options and frankly they're pulling plenty of stuff out of their (beep) as is trying to squeeze more content out of it.
     
    Also LCG's and CCGs are and stay playable if you enjoy casual play. Make some decks bring em out... have fun with a buddy.

    Is it possible we might be seeing cards for the new movies?

    I actually stopped collecting just before at the end of the Cycle prior to Endor. But if in the near future the game would begin focussing on the new movies, I can see myself completing the old trilogy cycles and expansions.
     
    In fact is there any buzz about FFG jumping on the new movie hypetrain to sell related games beyond those mats?
