  1. It is always a good idea to have more options! I encourage you to do them.
  2. Can't really stand sarcasm, can we...? Even thou you were the one who tried to be smart when I simply made a one-line statement (hardly a rant). Mmmkay...
  3. A major rule has been axed without a word either in the errata, f.a.q. or a single news item. Yeah, it was loud and clear...
  4. Okay, with the latest Jedi version of Luke and his noticeably missing time period indicator, I think we can safely conclude that FFG has silently killed this mechanic from the game.
  5. Yup, still playing it, still one of my favorites.
  6. Disney probably forced FFG to come up with this. There will be a Rebels line next year...
  7. I think it is not an improvement even with the app. I have tried the Descent app and in my opinion it is more frustrating and cumbersome than useful. You still need to put in your moves and what happened into the app, so it can react, adding considerable time waste to your plays. Not to mention, the app will never be able to come up with strategies as clever as a human player who has a much better grasp of what is happening on the game board. I am not against apps in board games, but I have yet to see one that actually made sense, and I am afraid this is not going to be it either. We'll see though...
  8. Why is electing not to use an optional rule breaking them?
  9. You don't see it because people think and feel differently. For some players this change is meaningless, for some it is a HUGE disappointment. I belong to the latter group. If you do not care, it is hard to grasp, but for me for instance, this change just killed the game (however idiotic this may sound) because it kind of destroyed the setting. I know it is not canon (I do not think anyone ever claimed this), but our games were set in a world that was canon. But, it is no longer, and therefore, the game lost something very meaningful to a lot us, more conservative players. In a sense, but I like to stick to the rules. At the moment I just don't buy anything without a time period. If it proves permanent that is the end of my IA "career" (which is, in a sense, is a relief as I have wasted too much money on it already ). However, I cannot get rid of the thought that this could have been handled a lot better. If it was me, I would have just erratad the rule book and said that time periods are now optional. They could still appear on the cards but you didn't have to use it. Everyone would have been happy; no problem! Sadly, FFG had chosen to take a much more radical route that was bound to upset a lot of people. Very unfortunate in my opinion...
  10. I really wanted to buy Greedo, but my OCD just cannot get along with this new, no time period approach. I can't help it. so, I'll wait and see what happens in the future, but for now I am on hold buying new IA stuff, which is actually a relief as I have spent way more than I wanted already.
  11. I don't really like the no time period thing on the mission card. I hope it is just the preview, and the final product will have a restriction. Both him and Greedo (don't really care about the Rebels dude).
  12. Hi all, I am trying to create a ranking of all the skirmish maps released to date. If you play skirmish, please head to the following BGG link: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1551183/skirmish-map-ranking and recommend the maps that you have experience playing on. I hope that, if enough people fill out the questionnaire, we'll have a comprehensive list of all the good and balanced skirmish maps out there. Thanks! - R.
