    Then don't like it. Clearly your mind is made up. Nothing stopping you from playing old5R still.

    There is five not six investigators. And five classes. We've known this since game was announced. I don't get all the whining about chaos tokens. FFG likes tokens. This is not earth shattering news to anyone. I like the more visceral approach of sticking your hand in the bag. I might replace the bag with the FFG tentacles dice bag however.

    Remember that thread that got locked about what it was like to be a woman in the Armada community and why it wasn't the most welcoming hobby in the world?  Stuff like this, folks.

    You really want to call everybody who does not like the current activation system lazy?
     
    I think that solves only a very small aspect of the current activation system. Apart from all those mentioned in the OP that are not the last/first bug, even last/first harbours more problems than the impossibility to retaliate annoyance: it also allows for way to easy navigation, because you know where the enemy ship will be during your next activation. Hence, a nice double arc is easy. Next, it still makes decision making about activation order quite boring, because you know exactly which ship to activate last/first. Finally, even with an overwatch mechanism you can easily avoid the main firing arc of your opponent quite easy with a quick damage spike ship (MC30, ETGladiator, ETLiberty) while getting a double arc: you fly in from beyond red range into a weaker firing arc, unload with weak overwatch retaliation from both your firing arcs, and finally fly away.

    List building, like many things, is about choices.  You choose to not put a bid in your list. Someone else may decide it’s important to them, and include one.  This is a basic function of the game.
    In the space of 10 seconds, I was able to build an 8 activation list, which still has a 12 point bid in it.  It’s a rebel fleet, and it’s probably something that a person better at the game than I am could do well with.  No last/first against that list.
    There are options out there. Changing one of the fundamentals of the game because you don’t like it is just laziness.

    Yes you can put them on a rock. No debate there it says it right on the card. 
     
    You should not roll for damage. It's not a maneuver as specifically stated on the rules card.  
     
    No  you cannot barrel roll or boost them off the board. The rules say you can't and the card does not specifically overrule this like it does for rocks.

    I loved the games deck building mechanic. so much better than yet one more pick every single individual card game. Something new and fresh. Sad the game has officially died and what a terrible way to announce it. Asmodee NA is just continuing to go down hill with their decisions. I miss FFG.

    I wouldn't. SWLCG deckbuilding has just about killed regular deckbuilding for me - I can't stand making that many individually meaningless decisions any more.

    Oh good it is this thread again. How I didn't miss it. 
     
    The core sets are made to create maximum variety and a good out of box game for those that only buy one core set etc. This is and always has been the way.

    I think the problem some people have is legitimate. It feels to them like they had a plan, they fit L5R into their budget for games, and now FFG is changing things around on short notice.
    No reason to belittle or mock. 
    That they're revealing all this so late is a bit crappy. I don't think anyone can argue otherwise. I'm happy to have more cards to play with because many themes are very weak for every clan right now, but it wasn't handled the best.

    lack of success with any LCG in our area. Too spread out a player base. And yes this game is for me. I applied to playtest it the minute it was announced. My name is in the rules and product. I live and breathe L5R story for a long time. I went ot GenCon specifically for it's launch. but if the game won't be a success here I cannot justify buying product that will just end up sitting unused.  this amplifies much quicker the inevitable barrier to entry for LCGs

    You’re not really helping things by being a pedantic jerk in every post. You’re fine with it. Thats ******* great. But not everyone is nor will be. And that’s fine too. You can allow others to disagree and not belittle them for it. I get that is a foreign concept for many but it is possible. Your attitude will do more to hurt the game than anything else.

    Warhammer Invasion lasted quite a long time, even though interest in tournament level play never seemed to develop. Sales were good in europe at least, it was often difficult to get older stock.
    Look guys, I love the L5R Brand. I am not selling my core sets. I think this is a good game. But FFGs track record with LCGs is rather bad. For the few that got anywhere, several have bit the dust, for a variety of reasons MOSTLY on FFGs side. And that was without making obviously unpopular moves like this one. Its hard enough to recover the playerbase of a TCG to go to the LCG format (TCG having, due to its nature, a naturally stronger draw because of offering a "collecting" experience as well), and I just wished they would not have made this rather obviously bad decision.
