  1. Toqtamish said: Its not your thread, you don't own it simply because you opened this particular can of worms. YOU want a game that allows you to play as the bad guys in LotR, we have all let you know of games that allow you to do exactly what you want from them. Yes they are no longer supported product wise, but ME ccg still is supported with an active community world wide and continues to be one of the highest priced "dead" ccg's going. YOU have also resorted to calling everyone who disagrees with you a troll, yet fail to see that you are the troll who came here simply to start an argument. YOU also decided to then curse at someone for having a different opinion. Great way to fail at making a valid argument or winning any support. Didn't say I owned it, but it is my thread, I started it, and can state my opinion (and that of a lot of others which if you would READ you would know, its not just ME. GOD read **** before you post. Second, no, you haven't let me know anything, ONE old card game 15 years old does, which I already know about and is in fact a dead game. There are no others. I called one person a troll because of an attack post, not an opinion or response. I didn't call 'everyone' a troll lol. Nice generalization tho. If I am starting an argument because you disagree, simply disagree and don't argue. I have zero probelms with someone who disagrees and have admitted there will be some folks who like the game, even tho the majority of the folks at gencon that we talked too also disliked it. Which i've already stated if you would f'ing READ. Also, the second replier actually replied with simple things... two games he thought I'd like, did you see us argue? Nope, in fact we had two nice replies. But the 'fan boys' who attack and haven't even played the game will get their dues, sorry to disappoint. I did not curse at someone for an opinion, i cursed at someone who posted a simple attack. ********* [ADMIN: Edited for foul language]
  2. Ok little boy... I'll spell it all out for you since you still can't read... (do they teach you kids anything in school today?) 1. Not looking for a board game... referenced CARD games specifically. Such a waste of your time. 2. Correct, this game is not for me and I will not be purchasing it, and I came in to find out why people who license the CCG seem to like to do LOTR as an adventure path, or co-op or whatever, and not finally a one against one. And also the option of light or dark. 3. I have got the reaction I was looking for, you again haven't bothered to read. LOL 4. I was actually at GenCon and played the game, and shared my opinion with many others who also got up from the game with the same opinion. 5. I never said you or any other fan boy had to dislike the game. Nor did I say you're an idiot if you do like the game. This game will appeal to a small sector and I hope those folks enjoy it immensely. But after decipher's game, they should have tried to appeal to a different mass. Finally, and I hope you were actually able to read this time so I don't have to repeat any of this in later posts like always... but you are trolling my thread. If you don't like the opinion here, feel free to shut the hell up. Oh, and I guess now we know who has the clue, and it isn't you.
  3. Wytefang said: Sigh, and yet another random new poster shows up in here whining about something that makes zero sense. If you can't be polite and respect that (unfortunately for you) your opinion isn't the majority one here, then just don't bother posting. Okay? Cool. Furthermore, there are many great reasons for that decision and very few for it. Get over it and either enjoy the game and stop whining or just don't play. I highly doubt they're going to change everything just for you. Nuff said. Wow, makes zero sense... lol. So the thought of a capital board for each race makes zero sense? Cool. Didn't know that. Whoa, look at that, the poster just above this one agreed. Hmm, he must make zero sense too. lol. And as for the majority opinion on whether or not each race should have its own capital... i think we should wait and see on what the majority opinion is. "futhermore... so many great reasons for that decision and very few for it." Hmmm, I will assume your sentence meant that there are just so many reasons to not do it, but very few reasons to give them capitals. if that is in fact what you were trying to utter while trying to make yourself feel all big and bad, then yeh, go ahead and give me those? Haven't heard any yet that wasn't debunked, or were you just generalizing because you don't actually have any facts? Yeh... So... while I didn't say they would change anything for me, I'm sure there are others besides myself that would love to have more races and capitals, not less. Especially fans of Warhammer. In fact, I'm willing to bet there's more people who would like to have a captal for each race than not. So... unless you have something else? Nuff Said. Oh don't let me forget my wink that will make me look sly and that I've 'beat' you in some posting war you've obviously tried to jump into.

Frog said: ellindar said: Frog said: Seriously, I always thought on paper it sounded like such a great deal but in reality it is just as bad and possibly worse on the ol pocket-book as the typical CCG model. Going by Warhammer Invasion, the 1st year of this game's existence there will be $280 worth of product. $40 core game $30x2 "big expansions" $15x12 "small expansions" That is 5 years of Descent products crushed into one year. Card games are still INSANELY EXPENSIVE!!! And let's see, what was black lotus or time walk worth for magic? A single card that if you wanted to play with it cost you maybe $300? And you're comparing $280 to have a playset of almost every card in the entire core set plus 14 expansions? Not even close. Knowing that everyone has access to a play set of every card and there is no rarity, booster packs, online singles being sold, etc. Oh yes... it is by far a great deal to answer your question. Lets say this game survives 5 years like Descent. Would you really want to have to shell out $1500 to keep up? rofl If you think $1500 over 5 years is even close to what a top contender or someone who 'keeps up' on magic spent in 5 years... your'e insane lol. Not even close. So to answer your question, absolutely, if I really like the game and was looking to keep up on every single race, and newest card, that's well within reason and way way WAY cheaper than a ccg.
  5. Wytefang said: Saw a bit of it at GenCon but wasn't terribly excited - the Co-Op mechanism pretty much ruins it for me as invariably it simply devolves into a game where the person with the strongest personality or most forceful attitude directs the entire game for everyone else. Ostensibly there are mechanics in this game to help prevent that (for example, you cannot tell your teammates what you have in your hand) but they're usually mitigated by other external aspects. Sure you can't tell someone what's in your hand but body language will usually give it away, anyway. I was heavily disappointed when I learned it was Co-Op only. Meh. Funny, this is exactly what happened to our group who were pretty excited about it as well. I posted this same thinking in the LOTR forum on this site for the game after seeing it at gen con this weekend, but of course was assaulted by the fan boys who have decided they will like it regardless of seeing it already lol. I understand that some people will like it... i have no issue with that at all, for me and the guys with me, (plus the others who got demos at the same time as us, and some who had demos previous to us but were playing cards with us at the time) all felt it was just 'ok', and the fact it was co-op play instead of getting to play against the other person and especially as shadow side or good side were just huge turn offs. If you get a chance stop over to that forum and add some thoughts.
  6. I wasn't speaking for 'you' specifically nor said I was, I was speaking for the crowd of people discussing it at GenCon, friends, or others who've uttered the same thing. **** ***. [ADMIN: Edited for foul language]

  8. qwertyuiop said: Seriously, man? Did you fall into a vat of Haterade in a chemical factory? Chill already. And again, someone who doesn't bother to read but wants to jump in. So funny. Had you bothered to read, you'd see straight out... that I think its a great game and want it to continue to be or get better. Wow. Maybe if you took your own advice and 'chilled already' you'd have been able to read that and realize I'm far from a hater. I own every set of invasion to date. DUH
  9. qwertyuiop said: Would that be the same Decipher Star Wars CCG that had more magic bullets than a Kennedy assassination? Just checking. I can understand your gripe, but let's be real for a second. Is the market REALLY there for sustainable shadow faction game play? I can't say it is. Also, all the best shadow monsters ridiculously strong. It'd make for a design nightmare. We can't beef up the hobbits to wreck shop like Conan in order to keep up, and the nazgul, dragons, balrogs, etc cannot be nerfed. It'd ruin the spirit of both. When one hero such as aragorn can equal 100 orcs, then yes, one nazgul can equal 100 gondor warriors. As always, stop thinking in terms of movies, books, etc. and start thinking in terms of a card game. Its exactly the same. And unfortunately, this living card game will be 'ok', but will not be what it could have been, just like so many others. And as for the star wars card game and the 'magic bullets' all I have to say is LOL... after the years and years it ran and the sheer number of cards and expansions, that's going to happen to a CCG. Haha, omg... unless maybe you were joking, in which case I'll laugh along with you instead of at you. In the end, you can appeal to one small crowd, or you can appeal to everyone, let the game be about the PLAYER and what the PLAYER would like to do. If its to be successful, you need to broaden the horizons.
  10. GW doesn't control this game at all in fact... the licensing only and just a a sign off that there wasn't anything offensive done. (read final approval) whether or not you like the 'rant' is irrelevant. There hasn't been and won't be a point that can say why each race isn't its own capital. Period. We've discussed support and I've already put that to bed... no discussion there. I didn't say every race had to be perfect, if you don't think in the already existing 6 there isn't one that's just a bit better or 1 that's a bit worse then you don't know your cards well. Adding 6 more does nothing other than give choices, and just like the first 6, some will be a bit better some a bit worse. And each expansion can build on that and help or detract from each. I understand the fan boy attitude that you love your game so don't say anything negative at all... lol. but... the fact is the game is a great game and can continue to be so, and even get better, if they put the time and effort into making a capital for each race. End of story.
  11. Rhelik said: Actually the reasoning is solid. With a BP each month containing only 20 different cards, it would be hard to support more than 6 boards. If you let it creap to 10 or even 12 different racial boards then how would you get people to buy each month. My race would get what 1 card? In a world with 10 faction boards (you could easily see more), then a BP would have 2 cards per faction and no room for neutrals. So for my $15 I get 2 cards (3 of each) and possibly and more than likely rarely some card from my side (order or destruction) that MAY be used in my deck, though not likely. With more than 10 faction boards this cuts down to likely 1 card per month plus some kind of neutral that i could use if it matches my build. So really, the decision to stay with 6 boards and introduce all other factions as some sort of neutral is wise decision because it keeps our 6 factions supported. Which in turn keeps us buying product and thus the game remains successful and therefor supported. Its a good game design and business design decision. -Bernie While I usually won't bother replying to 'fan boy' posts, I'll reply to this one simply because you actually think that was a valid statement. Its completely false, the ability to 'support' it is the same as 'supporting' six. And in fact everything you stated could be completely ignored by simply supporting the first 6 racial boards in one expansion then releasing a second expansion supporting only the second 6. That way, you can buy just one, or both, depending on what you're looking to get, the expansions could be released closer to one another but still a couple months apart and boom, everyone wins. Sorry, but you need to think it thru. I'm not looking for fan boy support saying "omg, the game is so great please don't ruin it". Just no room for that crap anymore. It just needs time, attention and the effort of the developer to do it right, just like anything else.
  12. lol, I'm not talking about a ccg that is 20 years old... what a joke... I played ME ccg a million years ago and while it was an 'ok' game, its not a new developement with new art, etc. And as for decipher, you refuse to read my posts again. Either read it and reply intelligently or stop trolling my thread. You can not play as a full good deck or full bad deck and your statement you could play as more of a shadow than fellowship is false since your cards had to be exactly split between the two. I am here 'ranting' about something that is very valid in my opinion. Two LOTR card games in a row that again don't give you the choices you should have. And that is lame in my opinion.
  13. Kzer-za said: Try War of the Ring or Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation. Those games let you play on the bad guy side. Are these card games? If so I'll take a look as I am not aware of them but that would be great if so. And thanks for the reply.
  14. Toqtamish said: You could play as Nazgul in MEccg and you played as bad guys and good guys in Deciphers game. So there is two card games that both have exactly what you are asking for. So you replied without even reading the post... like most trolls. Had you bothered to read, you'd see I specifically stated that having bad guys as just a 'part' of the deck and as after thoughts was not even remotely close to what people are looking for. Also, again, had you bothered to read, you'd see I specifically stated that decipher's star wars ccg where you could have a light DECK and a dark DECK was the goal. And then I even went on to describe having a nazgul deck commanding orcs, trolls, etc. Love having to repeat the whole post since you can't be bothered to read it in the first place but want to respond because you feel the need to jump into a conversation you apparently don't belong in.
  15. That is completely ridiculous and makes zero sense. It would work just fine and there's zero reason that instead of a person playing dwarves across from you it was Undead instead. Sorry, but no dice.
