  1. New To Game - What To Buy

    Thanks for the advice!
  2. CiV L5R

    I can give you a copy of Civ6 and its expansions. I got a copy with Humble Monthly and I will never use it.
  3. Late game force your opponent into inefficient defensive maneuvers. Sure, you can send all you units in a massive push, but you can't hide that and you can't effectively get your opponent to waste cards in Edge. Seeing Yularen sucks, yeah, but I still think spreading damage around is the better overall play.
  4. So, I just ordered a single core for my wife and I to check out. I know this game is story-driven, so beyond that core in what order should I buy stuff? Any other things I should know going forward?
  5. Game is Officially Dead...

    Attendance was on a steady decline year over year, at least at GenCon anyway. It's a matter of allocation of limited resources. With L5R being the new LCG hotness, and how big the GenCon event turned out to be for it (it sold out twice), it doesn't make sense to continue to provide any kind of support for the Star Wars LCG. I am curious about what will happen with the promos they still have. The full bleed cards, Force commit cards, affiliation cards, Death Star dials, and everything that can't be repurposed for other Star Wars games. I'm sorta interested in going to Worlds just to see if they try to dump all of that stuff there.
  6. Game is Officially Dead...

    Cool. I'm glad people are having fun. I suppose things would be easier to control in an online environment. Me? I stick to in-person. I suppose if things were agreed to in advance that would be fine. Eh, maybe this is just my contrarian grumpy side showing...
  7. Game is Officially Dead...

    Thanks but that's not for me. I'm not keenly interested in fan-made cards. Essentially it bifurcates the game: the official releases and the game with fan releases. What then with players who don't want to mess with fan cards? They're at a disadvantage because they want to stick to official cards? And who says what fan cards are more official than others? By all means have fun with that stuff, but the game is dead.
  8. Future of the Game

    I talked to a friend this past Saturday and let him know I'm passing on Star Wars. I've been playing it since it came out but, at least where I live, there are only really the two of us who play. But everyone and their second cousin is playing L5R. And I love L5R and have since Celestial Edition. On Saturday's when we played Star Wars, again, it was pretty much just the two of us. Sometimes a third guy would show as his schedule allowed. With L5R on Saturday, there are 6-10 people there. And games being played at our main store and other locations throughout the week. I don't know if L5R will be the deathblow to the Star Wars LCG, but I know what I'm moving to. I'll still buy Force Packs, and I plan to hit a regional tournament (don't want to waste my bye), but for regular games, I'm putting it away. I only hope FFG finds a way to revitalize the game because I want to play it, but the players simply aren't there.
  9. Then annotate the areas that have been updated referring back to the errata. That way you at least know there's something to look at.
  10. Still not compiled into a single document? The beta book becomes less and less relevant with every update. By design. Why aren't these updates being included in the beta book?
  11. We still have soft nougaty cores that sometimes just want to be hugged. We're not monsters!
  12. It's going to be just like old times! When Crane did dishonor better than Scorpion and still everyone hated Scorpion anyway. I'm having Celestial Edition flashbacks.
  13. As a Scorpion player, I feel that way about Dragon. "Oh, you have a bazillion attachments and are now 1000 strength 'roid monsters who don't care I dishonored them? GG, bro." I may run dishonor, but I still have to win conflicts somehow sometimes, and Banzai isn't always enough.
  14. Moving the goalposts. I never said they don't make mistakes. If you're going to take issue with something I said, please make sure I actually said it. The "I'm saving the game" justification made the argument that the card made for a bad play environment. That is, at best, debatable and completely subjective. And since you mention errata, that is the mechanism by which these issues are dealt with. Not one guy getting on his cross before the card even has the chance to actually do anything. If you're gonna play the "hero this game needs" role, make sure the thing you're afraid of actually has the impact you think it does. Because for as much as designers and playtesters make mistakes, many cards that look to be game breaking to throngs of internet fanboys (and Backhanded Compliment ain't that) end up being anything but in actual play.
  15. This. 100%. When I heard what had happened I thought it was actually kinda funny. I had zero problem with it. Then I read the "justification". Everything soured. He was trying to save the game? Really? One card was going to break it? You think the game designers are so stupid that it took you to save them from themelves? You out Scorpioned the Scorpion. Leave it at that. Simply say you didn't want to see the card used in tournaments. But no. You had to save the game. Sure.
