  1. They can turn whatever die they want (yours or theirs) to any side. You're forcing them to turn "a" die, you're not choosing which die. Then you turn a different die to any side (again, yours or theirs). Don't think anything has been overlooked.
  2. If I'm dead by turn 2-3(or worse- turn 1) i can't use my cards either. I've had far less fun getting blown out by hyper aggro decks than i have by getting milled. Maybe we should just all play 'snap' instead?
  3. 3 simple words: Lying in Wait. "Force an opponent to choose and discard cards from their hand down to the number of cards you have in your hand." and that's just specific tech against this one deck. From what I've seen now that i look into it, this whole "draw their entire deck" schtick is actually very easily countered by having some mitigation in hand and not claiming the battlefield too soon.
  4. I'm a wee bit out of the loop in this game, so I've not come across these deck archetypes yet, but it seems to me you're saying that there's an archetype against which a decent mill deck can win turn one without actually having to do a lot of work. Excellent.
  5. And to further clarify: no it is not broken. It requires 3 cards to execute, and for those 3 cards(2x premonitions and whatever you want to play with it) to be in your hand at fortuitous times. It can be good, but it's not broken.
  6. No it isn't. Your deliberate, intentional ignorance of how the game works, your desire to fundamentally change what words on a card mean, does not require an official ruling. You are wrong. It really is that simple.
  7. It does not work with indirect damage. No official ruling needed. The card specifies melee or ranged damage, and not as reminder text for "damage".
  8. So your opponent plays a card without paying its cost? At that point I'd ask them to pay the cost or return the card to their hand. Then they re-roll a dice? At that point I'd ask them to return the dice to it's original side, and discard a card before re-rolling. Unless there's something I'm seriously missing from the question here this seems to be a very open and shut case of someone misplaying. I suppose in a competitive environment you could call a TO and look to have them disqualified or forced to take a loss on that particular game, but I highly doubt someone in a competitive environment would misplay in this fashion to begin with. Mistakes do occasionally get made, but I don't think I've ever seen someone flat out just play a card for free then re-roll a dice...
  9. I can only hope the L3 card is unplayable. I don't think I've ever found a character more annoying in all of film.
  10. I agree. The game is for fun. Be nice if I had some organised events to play it at, maybe meet new people, see different players with different collections from around my area. I mean, those events exist, and I find out about one in every 10 of them via facebook or word of mouth, meanwhile events take place a 20 minute drive from my house with 4 people attending because between FFG and the store, nobody actually wants me to play this fun game outside of my circle of friends, apparently.
  11. Just imagine how nice it'd be if we had a proper tournament schedule. The lack of organised play support for this game is ridiculous.
  12. K. I'll add your assessment to pile of "destiny is dying/dead" statements, a pile started some time in January 2017.
  13. You play reaping the crystal, then before you play the upgrade you exhaust IBAT. They do, infact, work together.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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).
  23. 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.
  24. Not as much as Rugby or Ice Hockey, more than Cricket or Baseball.
