  1. Star Wars is also a huge collectible item, so I see the potential that it outsells pokemon. I am not saying it is likely to ever happen, but it could happen. I think right now it has no shot at outselling any of the 3 top ccgs, but I think that a big factor in that is that SW: Destiny is not available in mass market shops. So if Destiny ever gets into the mass market shops it might have a shot.
  2. I am also very interested in where you got the information that Destiny outsold pokemon? please add sources next time. All sale reports I found have Destiny in 4th place behing magic, pokemon and yugioh: https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/36973/top-collectible-games-fall-2016 https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/38064/top-collectible-games-spring-2017
  3. Because buffing him to 30 would also mean that his single die would need to cost 23/24 and they didn´t want that to be the case. also 28 leaves the possibility open to create more powerful characters/versions at 29 or 30. if he was 30 every other card that will be released in the future has to be balanced against his 30 points. They could also think about future game modes where you can field more than 30 points. A team based mode where two player have a shared point total of characters and so on. I think people should not only look at what the game has to offer right now, but what might be possible down the line and how a decision might influence the game design in the the future.
  4. What? That sounds like misinformation to me. I highly doubt they'd do that with demand the way it is. Unless they are rushing out the next cycle and are incapable of running some more off. Perhaps there'll be a reprint after the Rouge One expansion. My first reaction was, no way, this is FFG and they will reprint this set. But then it occurred to me that CCGs and the likes usually only get printed once, because the release schedule is so fast that the next expansion needs to get printed as the current set hits the market. So it could have been FFGs intend to not reprint the set. But Awakenings is the first set of Destiny and FFG didn´t how much demand there was for this product. So if it indeed sells out of its first print run I suspect they will reprint the set. With set 2 featuring rouge one and likely already being at the printers we might see the Awakenings reprint after the second set hit the market but I´m pretty sure it will get reprinted if it sells out fast. FFG would be foolish not to reprint a tournament legal set that is in high demand and expected to sell more copies then originally expected.
  5. In the Knights of Ren Podcast with Lukas Litzsinger said that each of the three sets they release over the next year will have around 170 cards. 170 cards and 4*6 characters is their design ground work they try to hit with every expansion of the game. One of these set will have 2 new starter packs. But the tourney meta will still allow ANY cards? For now yes. depending of if there are too strong cards that break the balance we could see banned/restricted cards. Rotaition where a whole set is no longer allowed for tournament play won´t hit until at least two years from now.
  6. My legendaries out of the 1st box were: Phasma, Vader, Kylo Ren Lightsaber, Launch Bay, One with the Force and Thermal Detonator

  8. My first display (36 packs) had 14 characters in it. The 12 booster I got at the prerelease event add 3 characters to that. so I´m 17 out of 48. I got another 3 displays at home to crack open.
  9. There is also one other difference in Destiny compared to (most) other CCG, that a lot of people seem to miss. Uncommon cards in Destiny aren´t really that uncommon... I would rather call them diceless rares... They have almost the same ratio in a card pack than rares and there is one more uncommon card in the set then rares. Once more people are aware of that fact I expect the better uncommons to be worth as much as the better rares.For your example of a booster draft with starters. You could always reuse your bought starters. I doubt a shop would force you to buy a new starter each time you wanted to participate in their draft tournament. That would be just stupid of the shop owner and would leave me to no longer shop at that place. I would add you also get 36 uncommon cards from a booster box compared to 30 rares (and 6 legendary). I would think the uncommons will still accumulate in the secondary market faster than rares. This might actually happen more due to the fact that you need 12-15 dice cards in your 15 card deck which are only rare and much less uncommons to build a good deck.
  10. I hope the next set hits end of march/ early april so everyone has had some time to playtest the new cards before worlds.

  12. That draftpack needs a battlefield added into, other than that I could see it. I wouldn´t be very excited about drafting with these set cards, but it makes for a solid base and with the fact that you only would need to draft 10 cards to make a playable deck they could maintain the hero/villain restriction.
  13. I think he is looking for a draft format with the product we currently have not what might come in the future. I think we will see draft kits in the future, Lukas hinted that they are looking into ways to make draft possible. I think they might be more along the lines of what Decipher did with the Lord of the Rings Draft packs. They were basically characterpacks that included a lot duplicates of the promo (starter) characters. FFG could do a similar base character booster which includes multiples of Rey/Kylo/Finn and all of the non-uniques. In addition to that character booster every participant would have to buy a certain amount of regular boosters. I don´t think these packs will hit the stores soon though...
  14. Thinking about this format made me realize that the problem might not be associated as much to the characters, but more with the dice cards in general. You might end up with no dice in the colors your drafted characters have. One way to solve that could be to open all packs first and build a dice d pack you draft from first, afterwards combine the remaining cards of two opened boosters to one new pack hat gets drafted from...
