    Alright, I think we've managed to milk all the puns long enough. Time to nip this thread before we all look like a bunch of boobs.

    WonderWAAAGH got a reaction from Kieransi in Community FAQ: a Consolidated Resource for All Players   
    In the absence of a proper rules sub-forum I thought it would be appropriate (and only slightly overdue) that we, as a community, come together to create a space for all rules queries or discussions. This could be a resource for all players, new and old alike, to share their questions, comments, or concerns; it is intended to act as a substitute for the current rules only insofar as those rules are not properly addressed in the rules reference guide (henceforth substituted for 'RRG'), and there are bound to be questions that remain in dispute until such time as they see print in the official FAQ. To that end I ask that all posters, myself included, remain objective and civil throughout, though there is no deliberate reason to shy away from healthy debate or discourse. In fact, new users should be aware that many interactions may be left up to personal interpretation, and thus wholly unresolvable without official developer input. In order to contribute here I ask only the following, as courtesy rather than mandate: 
    For new users:
    1) Check the RRG to see if your question has already been addressed. The official errata, clarifications, and FAQ begins on page 23. The RRG can be found here: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/22/71/22719609-501a-40f2-8b75-343b672839c4/swd_rules_reference_13.pdf
    2) Search this forum for any relevant keywords, starting with the title of the card in question. The search bar can be located in the upper right corner of the screen, just beneath your profile picture and username. Alternatively, use CTRL + F to search the current page for specific text. Here's a link to the advanced search option: https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/search/
    3) If you'd like to ask a question in this thread, please feel free to do so without any fear of embarrassment or criticism. As a courtesy to other users who may have similar questions down the road, please make sure to include the card title in your post, and preferably an excerpt of the card text or even an image. To include an image from the internet in your post, right click on it and select 'copy image location,' and then either right click -> paste into the body of your post or press CTRL + V. SWDestinyDB is a terrific resource for either, and their advanced search can be found here: https://swdestinydb.com/search
    For veteran forum-goers:
    I would like to call upon you, my peers, to help me establish this thread as a viable resource for all users. I will do my part in keeping this thread updated between (and immediately after) official FAQ updates, but in the interim I would like to consolidate any outstanding rules issues here, especially from those who have had official contact with the developers. Please feel free to either post or send me a personal message with any rules queries that Lukas et al. have resolved privately by email, with as much precision and faithfulness to the original exchange as you can muster. The same goes for Facebook; I do not engage in social media, so please don't hesitate to bring any official public feedback to my attention.
    So... any questions?

    WonderWAAAGH got a reaction from LordFajubi in Does this game have a core mechanic problem?   
    The problem with the game (or, more specifically, the meta) is that the transition from one set to two sets didn't increase deck variety at the competitive level, it constrained it. Cards and archetypes that were completely viable before have simply been obsoleted by this newer, faster meta, and the response from the devs that everything is 'working as intended' doesn't inspire much confidence that those cards will ever make a comeback. Clearly this isn't an issue in more relaxed environs where house rules and gentlemanly behavior take precedence, but if we're making up our own rules then what the heck do we need FFG for?

    For all future reference, MotC can only be used once per turn since you must exhaust it to use the ability. Upgrades do not ready when their attached characters do, though that does not preclude you from being able to roll the die back into your pool afterward.

    Personally, I don't want to open destiny up to causes, no matter how noble they are.  Once one gets in the precedent is set.  Next thing you know, we'll have "save the rainforest", "support our troops", and "habitats for humanity" cards creeping into the game.  I'm not against any of these things, but I'm also not interested in any sort of advertising spamming the game.
    Evidently the dark side is strong in me today.

    Other decks play upgrades onto their characters. Remove one die and they still have 4+ dice to resolve or manipulate into damage. Removing 1 die shouldn't turn it into zero or 1 damage unless it's a mill deck, a really bad deck, or a good deck having a really bad turn.

    They might get reprints in a set at some point down the road. Otherwise, people can grin and bear it like the rest of the CCG community has been doing for decades. FFG just needs an Oracle analogue and the inconvenience will be trivial anyways. 
    TL;DR: don't sweat the small stuff.
