    Matrim reacted to Joe From Cincinnati in How to Manage Your Fate (According to Joe From Cincinnati)   
    I just played the first round of the Discord Tournament and, you know, it had some pretty good examples of what I was talking about in my Fate Management article, so I decided to do a voice over and give my thoughts on the decisions I made etc.

    Matrim got a reaction from Soshi Nimue in For Honour and Glory Dynasty Pack Preview   
    ? You are arguing that one clan which is strong militarily and weak politically and a second clan which is strong politically and weak militarily have an advantage getting the favour over clans that are more evenly matched? 
    You are arguing that players won't use keepers or cheap peeps to not attack defend to prevent the opposing side getting the favour when these cards are in play?
    You are assuming people won't cloud the mind these peeps or other pkill
    You are assuming , from 2 packs, that only lion and crane will have a 5 cost char who discards the favour for a strong ability whereas I think it looks as though every clan will gain the same with one per pack.
    I think your logic sucks. Sorry.
     
     
    Lets look as some practical scenarios
    One of the 5 cost peeps appears in the province and oppo uses almost all fate to buy with only 1 spare, no one has favor
    - i buy 2 peeps and try and take the favour so he cannot use his ability
    One of the 5 cost peeps appears in the province and oppo uses almost all fate to buy with only 1 spare, oppo has favour
    - I try to cloud the mind peep, or set up ns or ics or woftc and if I cant do those buy more peeps take the favour this turn (so he only gets to fire the event once)
    One of the 5 cost peeps appears in the province and oppo does not buy but gets peeps to go for the favour
    - I let a province (or 2) go pop and send all (almost all) my force to the 5 cost peep province to break it
    But no. Why not instead pretend the game is broken and there are no ways to game round these (and the other clan champions).

    Yup, the favour is not automatically yours so this can be countered especially considering the cost to get them out (charge etc not withstanding)

    I mean I can see a dragon character that can literally match it word for word.
    This ability is strong if you have imperial favor and for greater glory. otherwise it is just a stat boost that slightly synergizes with spiritcaller. 
    i think all of the discard imperial favor abilities are supposed to be op, because they are so conditional.
    also if you feel the dragon cards dont have potential i would look at the stone of sorrows

    You crack me up. Seriously. You are ranting about a game in which you haven't looked at the core sets cards yet. You are seriously the most hilarious complainer I have seen yet. And I read the duelling thread. All of it.

    i agree with a lot of this, except for "We've already told the story where the second son of Hantei XXXVIII becomes Shadowlands champion. We need not tell it again. ". this is like saying "we've already told the story of a Lion champion who is a strategy genius and leads his clan when his brother dies" or describing any canon character. i'm not saying no characters arc should change, but i'm also pushing back on the idea that because it was done in the old story, that means it shouldn't be done in this one. The new canon has been reusing the old in a lot of places, and changing in others, but its definitely not discarding entire character arcs simply for sake of them having already been done.

    The blood in his veins is all that matters... The Spider took an oath of loyalty that stretches beyond time and space. If the Hantei calls, we will answer, whether he is "good" or "evil" is a lesser matter for the weak.

    I'm still happy to see he's still there and I'm eagerly waiting to see what kind of man he'll become, good or bad.
     
    I think I'll only be disappointed if he is killed in the near future or complelty forgotten.

    Emphasis mine, and for fine reason. I'm totally on the This-is-Daigotsu train, but hey folks, this isn't your daddy's L5R. He was. Perhaps he will be a second time? Maybe he won't. I'm going to love the ride, though!

    Matrim reacted to Ishi Tonu in Dishonor is not inherently NPE - The sour grapes need to stop   
    Considering that Jon Butler has come out publicly and confirmed the discussion with Mark about the Seeker of Void being the intended role that Scorpion wanted to lock themselves into for the year and purposely passed on it at GenCon to keep it open for worlds pretty much sinks your battleship.
    If you choose not to trust the word of players who have been committed to the Scorpion for many years with the old CCG, and well before the LCG began, then I don't really know what to tell you.  I've met them in passing and know them by reputation to be good players and men of their word.  
    If you don't want to believe the Dragon player that gave up hatamoto to "sabotage" the Scorpion did it for what he felt were good reasons, I can't help you there either.  I've only gotten second hand information from people who know him and I have no reason to doubt them when they tell me that was his motive.  If you choose to doubt his reasons then I can't help you there either.
    You have the choice to believe what you want and you've chosen to assume the worst in people. I find that rather sad.
