    no one except the big 4: influence, move, ehance and sense.
    it is not surprising considering how expensive developping powers is and how rarely campaign achieve high level.

    Edge, at least the french part that it I know of, it also publish translated board games and RPG of other compagnies. So the 3 RPG they will get from FFFG will just add on top of all the other games they are working one. They are also very slow at releasing stuff. The french translation of this Star wars rpg is still at Lead the Example and Nexus of Power. So, Unless Asmodee hire a whole new team, I am afraid it would take a while before we see a new book, especially if they have the L5R and Zombicide RPG to work on also.

    Why.
    They can only use it on a minion to start and have to spend 25 xp to do  NEMESIS and if they want to have the mark in custody is is an additional 15 xp. so to start with a nemesis in custody they have to make a RRR streetwise check after spending 70 xp in order to so it. that is quite an investment on a not a sure thing ability.  A lot of people seem to treat these abilities as a single item. when there is a significant xp investment the character. If you think about it the Mando in the Mandalorian probably has the base always get your mark. That is probably what happened in the first episode. Mando spent 2 destiny and started in the same area. as that minion mark.

    First of all, you or your player are doing nothing wrong. The combat specializations are designed to make combat monsters once you buy lot of their talents.
    Still The best way to deal with a murder hobbo character who abuse his skills is to show him he is not the only killing machine in the universe. Also threaten the rest of the group. if being beaten don't make him mature a bit, maybe the other characters would care more about their life and talk him up the next time he would want to anger the wrong person.

    In our death trooper commando game, we murdered the last jedi we encountered in 1 round. Nothing better than a heavy riffle to stop a threat.

    vilainn6 reacted to General_Grievous in Game worth it after Vengeance of Mordor cycle?   
    It sure did, difficulty generally balanced out so there is only one or two really hard quests per cycles. A lot more powerful archetypes have been formed since then too, Dale, Eagles, and just lately Rohan and even Gondor are coming into their own. The current cycle and its contracts are the icing on the cake guaranteeing that you can play whatever you want to play now. One hero, two heroes and a heroic ally, three heroes only: tricked out in weapons, a Swarm of allies and events that gets free random attachments, only unique heroes, and exactly one of each card variety decks. It's been awesome game finisher cycle that you do not want to miss and can help you play any of the quests. There are also plenty of power decks available and I have found several that can run through pretty much every quest in the game without tweaking. Our trick for playing two player was my wife running a power deck (Outlands, Caldera, Dale, Noldor) and me bringing along Legolas and Eleanor (for some ranged help and the all powerful treachery cancellation). We are fairly casual players and have no qualms playing on thematic mode with the extra resource at the start which helps too. I'll only play normal difficulty when I'm in the solo league or testing a power deck.

    Destiny was in decline for almost a year and FFG is going through major change recently so it doesn't surprise me they put the axe on hit.

    A warning to all CCG designers.  You are not designing MtG, that game took years to grow its Organized Play.  If you want your game to last you must cultivate your player base.  And since you have no clue let me break it down for you.  Your player base is made up of sheep and wolves.  There are always wolves.  If you let the wolves eat all the sheep you soon wont have sheep and once you are down to just wolves its not going to go well.  Feed your sheep.  Invest in your casual players far more than anyone else because you need your casual players to out number your competitive players at a rate of 7 to 1.  Dont worry how many tier 1 players you lose in the first 3 years of the game, worry about the casual players until you have established an optimal number of them.   The casual players need to bringing in more and more casual players.  The Tier 1 players cannot survive without the casual players and they need a lot of them.

    vilainn6 got a reaction from Flrbb in Will They Continue to Re-Print?   
    They didn't continue to reprint extension for Call of Cthulu and Star Wars LCG so I doubt they will for this one. They will just let the game fade and move the focus of players on other products.
