    I think there is a good chance they are in the game in some form.
     
    I would think AM most likely with their own Warlord and some supporting cards.

    Yeah, love the podcast. Just get a kick out of difference in how different cultures pronounce words in the same language.

    One thing I've found out from this podcast is that Canucks pronounce "resource" funny..
     
    Down here we say it like,  RE-source. Apparently you guys say it , "reez zource".

    Looking to revive this long running meta.
     
    We used to have guys like Sir Robb, HoseJuan and others  that were very good players and fun to hang out with. Would like to build something like that again here in the Twin Cities.
     
    I would be open to playing on Thursdays, at the Level Up, Mead Hall, FFG Game Center, the Soruce or anywhere in the metro people would like to play.
     
    I live out in Hutchinson but am in town on Thursdays so can really only play then and sometimes on weekends.

    Hard to take the results too seriously. The game is so knew a good number of players there had probably hardly played the game much.
     
    IMO, I think that Dark Eldar did so well because a lot of players who've played the game a lot played them and also, the playstyle of Dark Eldar is a little more involved/less obvious.
     
    SM did well because they are strong and straight forward to play.
     
    I think it came down to there being a lot of people still learning the game, the "ace" players tended to gravitate to Dark Eldar more, and SM being strong.
     
    IMO, SM is hands down the best build right now but in the hands of a good player the Dark Eldar can be very good as well.
     
    Not to say that the two guys in the finals are not good players, obviously you have to be pretty good to beat out 120 other players. Strong Deck+Strong player.

    M44C got a reaction from Grimwalker in Doubts about returning to AGoT with 2nd Ed   
    I think a lot of people are getting their undies in a bunch about the new addition but not about rotation.
     
    It makes no sense. If you are OK with rotation you should also be OK with a 2nd edition. Rotation will make many of your current cards useless anyway, so really going to a new edition isn't much of a difference.
     
    If they had just gone with rotation and left everything else alone a huge part of the cardpool would rotate out immediately anyway. Sure, with the new edition even more cards will be useless but for a game that went from smooth and elegant when I picked up the first release of the CCG to now being this clunky thing being crushed under it's own weight, it was well over do.

    M44C got a reaction from w1ndst0rm in AGOT Card Game Lore   
    I just thought with a new addition coming out that we could have a thread that discusses the history of the game since it all started with Westeros Edition in 2002.
     
    I was thinking of stuff more along the lines of stories about your meta, players, cards/sets ....ect.
     
    As for my local meta:

    Twin Cities Area
     
    Not entirely sure who/where it started but I know it was shortly after the first set was out and I believe that Rob (Used to go by Sir Robb on the old forums), Little Finger, and HoseJuan were probably among the earliest members. I started playing just around the time of the Sea of Storms and came across the group playing at The Source.
     
    From there the group grew, I think somewhere around 10-12 regulars (IIRC) and we started playing at Phoenix Games in Minneapolis and Village Games in Anoka as well. At it's height (whcih I would put around the middle/end of Valaryian)we jad as many as 3 tournaments in a week locally, most weeks.  We also traveled frequently to other Metas. There was one in Cambridge (about 30 minutes north), one in Shakopee (about 20 minutes south) and one in Rochester (little over an hour south).
     
    We would travel on weekends to Rochester to play frome time. Rochester happens to be the home of the world's tallest AGOT player Igor who stands 7'8". Though, I don't think he plays anymore.
     
    Toward the end of Winter block we started losing people (some to online games I believe) and by the time the LCG came out, the Meta was mostly inactive from what I can tell.
     
    People can fill in where I missed.
     
    During our time were lucky to be sort of the home meta for the FFG guys, we would occaisionally have Nate, Casey, and Eric Lang show up and play. Some of the players were playtesters and played the FFG guys a lot.
     
    I'm also old enough (age and game wise) to remember that old leaderboard thing they had when the game started up.
     
    Anyway, I'm hoping with 2nd edition we can revive the local meta some.

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
     
    My only worry with the LCG model when they first introduced it was that over time, if the games ran for years and years is that there could be huge bloat in the card pool, power creep of cards and discourgament of new players who look at a huge card pool.
     
    Part of the LCG idea should be to keep things more affordble for new and existing players, plus managing a balance play environment. Having rotation helps with all three.

    Most of FFGs LCG's have a weak faction when the Starter Set comes out, but they even out after a war pack or two.

    Are you still running these?

    I am able to make Thursday nights, so this would be great.
