  1. Why is MWM a blue character? Because he clicked on this thread.
  2. I'm much in favor of multiplayer for the same reason I like it in my Thrones. Both are very "multiplayer" settings. Like, Star Wars is a two-player battle of light side versus dark side, and most of the games based on it, FFG-era and earlier, have reflected this in their designs. But Legend of the Five Rings is all about alliances and intrigues, an eternal war over the souls of mankind that most of said mankind thinks is mere myth and self-aggrandizement by the Crab Clan, while in the shadows you have the secret society known as the Kolat: an entirely human-based but no less dire threat to the Empire, who think the gods are tyrants and that humanity should be free to govern itself. Bottom line: What makes L5R such a compelling setting is how multifaceted it is, and restricting it to a two-player game (even as much as I agree that this should be the default tournament format) would be a great shame given the opportunity presented by the reboot.
  3. "There's no play experience here, unless you've brought it with you!"
  4. The back of the T-shirt reads, "Fulfill Your Destiny." In Palpatine's voice, no less!
  5. Sometimes I wonder where we would be today if the first CCG ever designed had been total crap.
  6. You don't have to be a baseball fan to like the Cubs. Tony Almeida's Cubs mug is one of the most popular characters on 24!
  7. Oddly enough I had the opposite reaction, which was that while I liked the mechanics of SWCCG, it felt too slow and methodical to bring out the feel of the Star Wars saga. But when they took a proprietary IP and rebranded the game with it, I was hooked. Then they got embezzled to within an inch of their life and had to pretty much close up everything they were doing. But WARS was fantastic for the five or six minutes we got to play it.
  8. A free-for-all mode might be fun. It wouldn't be very thematic, but neither is having Ren and Dooku team up, so I say the more the merrier!
  9. Heheh I see what you did there. It took me several times reading through to understand what the OP meant.Which is what, exactly? Kylo is whiny, sure. But I don't understand what is making him a princess.EDIT: Is he saying that he doesn't like Rey, thus because Kylo likes Rey (albeit in a disturbing dark-sided way), he doesn't want to play Kylo?
  10. Even so, it does seem like it will satisfy in the same way, but with actual strategy moreso than mindlessly blasting enemy characters.
  11. Not to mention there may or may not be a deeper meaning to the "There has been an awakening" line that goes beyond the events of TFA and into the saga as a whole. Speculation on this point is very much a thing, with fans believing Anakin may have also been an awakening of the Force. Hard to say for sure at this point, though.
  12. Kind of like how we see the Rebels win the Battle of Endor, and while we don't actually witness the occupation of Coruscant and liberation of the galaxy, we're able to assume pretty much what happens.
  13. And this is why dystopic forums with fascist mods are sometimes the better place to be for discussion.
  14. So one could argue that the OP is talking about themselves specifically, and not the community as a whole.
