    alexbobspoons got a reaction from Strawhat in No plans for new physical product for Imperial Assault   
    Zuccuss, 4Lom, Yoda and Ewoks and that would be closure for me.
     
    Then just lots n lots of app content. But if I had to chose between the above minis or app content, I would chose app content so in that I am happy FFG are continuing digital stuffs

    To be totally honest, this is what I’m hoping.  I’m just not totally optimistic.  I’d be glad to see an HotE campaign and maybe one more that is a mashup of all of the mini-campaigns.

    Can't even get Attack on Dol Guldur in Canada because it doesn't appear in Asmodee Canada's product catalogue. So after nearly a year of waiting, a retailer finally ordered a few copies directly from FFG... probably at a loss to the retailer, given the low price at which they sold them. That said, going the extra mile did score loyalty points with this customer. 
    Someone seems to be asleep at the switch somewhere in the Asmodee distribution network if products are failing to make it into catalogues/distribution. Normally, Canadian and American release dates are the same for FFG products, so the delays with PoD products have been baffling.

    The biggest issue that D2e has had in my opinion (and that of many others), is FFG's long term insistence that all you ever need to play the game is the original box.  Rarely (albeit they did some later on) have they incorporated expansions into campaigns.
    What this game really needs is a campaign that utilizes boards, characters, monsters, LTs, etc. from ALL expansions.  Yes, that means it may only be viable for the subset of people that have purchased everything.
    Never the less, I think it would be a big seller.  This is true from a physical standpoint as well as a digital standpoint.
    FFG really needs to get past the mindset of not mixing and matching expansions.
    If they truly do come out with a D3e, I will not buy it if they don't plan from the outset to develop and support the game in this manner.  Further, I want to also make it clear that while digital, cooperative play is welcome, I also want to play this game as 1 v many ... in other words, an active Overlord role.

    With no disrespect intended to the OP I do think it's a shame that this is the main thread for the great new content and is title not only doesn't highlight that fact to any casual visitor, but also can be seen as quite negative or ungrateful.
    Not exactly saying to FFG yay great we all celebrate it,  let's keep having more content please when we feared the game was finished.

    I'm almost sure this expansion is
    - to thank fan like us
    - a good way to add content to the app without having big stuff
    - a small test to see if this type of expansion can work
    - big negocations with asmodee

    I can't wait to have it ! But I haven't seen the release date somewhere. Should be long for only card, yes ?

    Awesome news! I like this approach as others have stated because it lets FFG test market interest in Descent without tying up their plastic production lines in china which are currently filled up making legion & x-wing 2.0 stuff. Also it can be understated how much value classes add to collections that already have a wide depth of heroes. I agree I would like to see the remaining 1st ed heroes produced and a campaign or two still made but for now this is a welcome treat.

    After thinking a bit more about this, it's a shame that there is no mentioning of the inclusion of 5 alternate skill cards for the marshal, prophet and wildlander for use with Road to Legend. It would have been a great opportunity to get the skills of these classes working for RtL.

    Honestly how much more plastic and cardboard are you looking for? We already have a ton of heroes and a huge amount of monsters and tiles not just a few of which feel very VERY similar. I like that they're breaking out of the mold where every release has to check off the same boxes to give their descent fan base something that they've been asking for and hope to see more of the same going forward.

    I was honestly afraid that Descent was going to be digital-only from this point forward. I'm glad to see a new physical product. I'm sure I'm in the minority here but some more physical co-op adventures would be nice, too. I don't own anything that can run Road to Legend except my PC (which is on my desk in my office and my game space is the dining room table).

    I'm confused, are we supposed to think that there was an upcoming boxed expansion with ten classes in it?  I find that doubtful.
     
    I don't see how this isn't good news.  Worst case scenario, we're still getting physical stuff, so I can't complain.  And this huge influx of classes is sure to shake up the game quite a bit.
     
    But if we take it a step further, this might be a way to test the waters on how much interest there still is in this game (which, it seems we get a pretty steady influx of new players).  Safer to do it with a (much necessary, anyway) pack like this than with a fully fledged plastic expansion.
     
    Honestly, the only reason I'm mad is because I just got caught up on having everything last month.

    People, it’s the first product release in a bazillion years, and you’re NOT happy? 🤨
    I’d far rather have this than another small box expansion, the replay value this brings to my existing collection is huge.
    Yes, I’d love to see more of course, but let’s be happy for this nice surprising Monday announcement!
