  1. Move is probably not place, but needs to be adressed in a FAQ for sure
  2. Astronomy vs. Astrology

    In Civilization 6 the computer game both Astrology and Astronomy are “techologies” that can be researched. Astrology is researched in the Ancient Era of ones Civ and Astronomy in the Renaissance Era. Seeing how all the cards are named after Tech and Culture advancements in Civ6, it seems deliberate they named it Astrology in A New Dawn. Historically acurate? Probably not, but it is true to the source material.
  3. Is this game even Worth playing?

    This is an interesting twist to the conversation. Are you beating your friends because you are better at the game than they are? Or is it because you have access to more/better cards than they do? If you are a better player than they are, try to bring them up to your level. Explain why you do the things you do in game and ask them to explain their choices and then present them with alternatives they might not have thought of. The trick here is to help them grow, without being condescending or patronizing. If your friends get better, they’ll present more of a challenge and make you have to work harder for your wins, which makes you a better player as well and possibly gives you more of a chance in your local tournament scene. Now if either of those situations (with friends or tourney) is due to deck building options from the size of your respective collections this links back to the original post. You’d have to make a choice: do I want to win at tournaments? Or would I rather have fun playing with friends? The second option can be handled if you all agree to spend about the same on the game, you’ll have a fairly level playing field. If you want to win tournaments, the most cost effective way to do it is probably to pick a good deck and buy the singles you need to make it, the obvious downside here is that if you’re already beating your friends regularly, it’s not gonna get much better when you are playing a tournament winning deck. Try to figure out what it is you like about Destiny and in what setting (fun with friends, competitive tournaments) and try to find a way to work this into your financial situation (if indeed you decide you like the game enough to keep playing it)
  4. How do YOU beat Kylo/FN?

    Gotta love how this thread turned into an RRG discussion when said RRG will not be legal yet for our Nationals 😭 I still have to deal with tons of Kylo/FN most likely.
  5. New Rules Reference Guide

    Yeeeaaahh, except they didn’t, but specifically stated on their FB page that the new RRG would not be in effect for this event.
  6. New article! More Legacies stuff!

    It could be in play on both sides ... the chaos is real!
  7. New Rules Reference Guide

    The only thing I hate about the new RRG is that it goes into effect November 6th......and our National Championship is the day before:( (Also, I think It’s a Trap was nerfed too much, but oh well) Other than that, great, great stuff for the game!
  8. Rivals draft cost

    If you go into it thinking “these six packs are mine and I don’t want to share any of it”, draft is not for you. Be aware though that in sealed your neighbour could end up with 4 Legendaries where you have none, that’s not likely to happen in Draft. Of course, it could also be the other way around. If you want to be sure of what you get, just skip draft and sealed altogether and buy a box, 6 Legendaries guaranteed (apart from any very rare distribution anomalies).
  9. Thanks for posting I’m missing discussion on why it’s important to always try and discard their Detention Centre (especially if your article is geared towards new players) and wether or not there are situations where it’s better to not do so. Otherwise pretty good!
  10. Rivals draft cost

    You buy 6 packs and the first time you do it, you’ll also buy a Rivals pack. This is fine. I’m more concerned about seeing Anakin in every single game of Draft I play. I wonder how fast that is going to be boring. Until then I’m excited for this though.
  11. Anakin pairings?

    I'd try him with elite K-2SO, more consistent damage than Rey, better protection than Kanan, while still giving access to Bestow. Not extremely competitive most likely, but I'd like to try it anyway.
  12. NPE almost made me quit tonight

    I believe that is the correct sequence, yes
  13. How do YOU beat Kylo/FN?

    We've got Nationals coming up in a few weeks and still no word on any change to FN. I'm starting to take into account that FN might be unchanged for the tournament and that we'll see lots of Kylo/FN, since it seems to be THE deck to beat. What do you think are the best decks/strategies for beating it while still being able to face the other contenders? Plz discuss! PS. Yes, many people don't like FN...we heard you loud and clear, no use yelling about him again, I'm looking for information to improve my game against him and that is what this thread is for, please take that into account in your response.
  14. Too easy? All subject covered?

    I have 8-10 copies of Overkill, does that count? ^^
  15. This. I'm not even sure we'll see any of these in competitive play. They're great for draft/sealed and casual though, I like them.
