    Destiny is Dying...Fast

    K. I'll add your assessment to pile of "destiny is dying/dead" statements, a pile started some time in January 2017.

    Reaping The Cristal + Upgrade 3 + IBAT

    You play reaping the crystal, then before you play the upgrade you exhaust IBAT. They do, infact, work together.

    When do we see...

    So the question is really: when will we see more obscure EU characters or minor off screen characters? We have a fair few already... Quinlan Vos etc. Plus for those who don't watch or give a stuff about Rebels theres all those characters. They gotta pad it out somehow. Only so many Vaders and Lukes out there.

    Same rarity, less printing

    I think he was asking the question rather than making the statement. As far as I'm aware there's no publicly available information regarding print numbers of individual cards.
  5. I was at this tournament, went 3-4 with Thrawn/Talzin. Disappointing day all round, but I want to mention the Thrawn/Cienna/Guavian deck which was a lot of fun to play against, a very interesting take on vehicle decks, and I've ever seen(nor do I think I'll see) anyone get 2 AT-STs and 2 Pirate Speeder Tanks out in the first 3 rounds of a game.

    Boxes and Packs issue.

    Okay i will: I've had exactly the spread I'd expect from a random system of distribution. This has led to a frustratingly high number of Krennics in Spirit of rebellion but an absolute gold mine of ancient lightsabers in empire at war. I never want to see another maz's vault again and i still don't have an easy pickings, but i did get enough battle droids to make a tidy profit off folks desperate to own 7+ battle droids... This is the nature of random chance. I accept it, i understand it, and i buy my boxes knowing they may well be 36 of the most useless rares/legendaries in a given set. I don't come on the internet to cry that i think the system isn't random enough because i think i should get 30 different rares and 6 different legendaries in every box, then 30 still different rares and 6 still different legendaries in a different box. I'll stop being condescending when i see some actual decent statistical analysis and not just hearsay and anecdotes.

    Boxes and Packs issue.

    Random does not mean evenly distributed. If there are approximately 60 rares in a set(not in a place to check how many there actually are right now) and you open a box with 30 rares the chance of duplication is quite high. As for the rest of your post. Look up something called confirmation bias. Do some testing on this. Get a decent sample size. Then come back with some proper quantifiable results.
  8. You're about 2 sets behind. There was a time when the only heroes that could win were Poe/Maz. Since the 2 player set and legacies came out, heroes have plenty of options to be successful. Not necessarily expensive cards like Yoda either: Theres a 5 die Hero Vehicles deck running around which can use zero legendary cards - Elite Rose, Elite Aayla, Ezra. Throw in a bunch of cheap rares like Chance Cube, Modified HWK, Resistance Bomber, Y-Wing, T47 Airspeeder, get Rally Aid and Tech Team so you can play them out, and you're on your way... Dunno if it's won any big tournaments but I know it's been there or thereabouts for a few.
  9. I agree. The whole sports analogy is silly and I regret bringing it up to start with (in Association Football, still a bad analogy, I mostly just wanted to have a tongue-in-cheek dig at the English). I stand by the idea that Worlds should only be open to people who qualify by winning other tournaments as being stupid though. Its a dice and card game, played for trinkets. I'd rather have a huge event, many players, everyone gets together, a celebration of the community.

    Resolving dice and second chance

    How "cocked" are we talking here? I have one particularly irritating memory of a bloke asking me to reroll a die that was resting between my playmat and the table - it was in no way cocked and I could easily rest another die on top of it. Interestingly he only asked me to do it at a key moment in the game where the die in question was showing big damage that he was unable to mitigate. These are big, heavy dice, it's generally pretty obvious which side is facing up. That said, if it was truly cocked then your opponent was being a jeb-end.

    Rant on Availability

    Where are you looking to buy? (geography wise)? In the UK prices for boxes of Spirit of Rebellion and Empire at War are slightly cheaper in some places (example: https://www.magicmadhouse.co.uk/search/star-wars-destiny-booster-box) presumably as it's seen as a less desirable excess product (and some stores may have over-ordered) Awakenings you may struggle to find as they didn't print much of it to begin with (they were unsure how popular the game was going to be so there was a pretty big shortage when the game first came out).
  12. Some people seem to be of the opinion that worlds should just be like the 50-60 people who won national/regionals who can also afford to fly to America for a long weekend to play a card and dice game.
  13. Not as much as Rugby or Ice Hockey, more than Cricket or Baseball.
  14. I disagree. The current system rewards premier event winners by guaranteeing them a seat, but i want to see a huge event with participants from across the spectrum of players, not just the best 30-40 players. Think of it like the soccer world cup - its not just for Germany to flex our footballing dominance against Brazil and Spain; England gets to play too.
