  1. most of the players with interesting things to say and stuff got banned when one of the fanboys got promoted to community leader... after that he banned everyone he disagreed with. It wasn't exactly SWJ, it was before that.. but it was during the formation of that brutally fascist thing you see a lot of nowadays when everything must be sanitised and conform or you get banned, bullied and harassed because somehow no one should ever feel offended about anything ever. Think like them or **** off. Basically the entire community starved and slowly turned into what you see now. It was destroyed through miss management. Added to that the game is like nearly a decade old.. so if you are doing the exact same thing now as 10 years ago, you need to re-evaluate your life. That being said I have been around from day 1 of the announcement.. but have been lurking on and off for last 5 years or so. (this is my 1st day posting in years) There is just nothing left to say and despite some old school greats like Spleen or PsychoRocka not many of them are still about... very little is said here that has not been said before, nor is there much encouragement for the kind of stuff we used to get.. like 100 page threads on the nature of evil and stuff. Finally a lot of the tech discussion that brought a lot people here is now on RingsDb directly in the deck threads. richsabre, Glaurung, Mitch the One, Alogos, Tracker1, Danpoage ... . . .
  2. So is this project dead? No update in 2 years : ( I sent me a mail.. if he shares his source code I would be happy to continue if he wants out.
  3. Where is the Nids, Dark Elder, Tau and Necron expansions? The wait is getting serious now... get on the case FFG... give us something. All we need is new battle cards, new models and new race boards. I am not even sure that I want new mechanisms or anything... just more of what you got is fine... What;s da hold up!!!
  4. Meh... team game and I am out. I want Forbidden Stars / Twilight style player seats that can be added or removed. 3 players or 5 players or w/e (after expansions.) I don't even. What other factions are in the original trilogy? I mean we are not talking about the retarded prequels or the extended universe crap.. this is pure golden age only. So.. what other ones are there then? You can't claim something and then say to cut stuff out just so you are right. Thats like saying a sandwich is nothing but bread if you cut out all the other crap. FFG Only has permission to make board games from the original trilogy. Also "One of the most important ways that Rebellion evokes the original trilogy is through its asymmetry."
  5. I don't even. What other factions are in the original trilogy? I mean we are not talking about the retarded prequels or the extended universe crap.. this is pure golden age only. So.. what other ones are there then?
  6. lets hope so, as Crab said.. this is a deal breaker. You would think they would mention the other factions in the blurb. Still Star Wars really only has 3 factions... Criminals, Empire and Rebels.... FFG has already drawn a line between "scum" and "smugglers" to split the criminal faction in the films, and I am pretty sure that the "none aligned planets" are mentioned in Jedi. I dunno... we need more info on multiplayer and need is fast. The very fact they didn't say jack about it or other factions in the blurb is not a good sign.
  7. 4 Players huh? Looks like a two player game, even the setup image of the spoiler is a 2 player game.. is this like saying a chess game is a 32 player game as there are 32 pieces? There seams to be little information, but I assume that you play on teams, which is basically just splitting 1 player into two right? All through the article there is language like this... "the Imperial player can..." / "As the Rebel player, you might..." .... just saying.... More info please for multiplayer.
  8. Illegal?! roflmao. Get your panties unbunched dude, good grief.
  9. Thanks for the heads up.. defiantly will be doing this! Just use a fake email and name like any normal person. Why do you have to make such a big deal out of nothing.
  10. we will be implementing significant design changes, but we will ensure that the spirit and emotional impact of Legend of the Five Rings remains intact <snip> by introducing a new mechanical design This makes no sense. Why buy one of the most beloved games if your planning to change it so much. These designers can not wait to get their mitts on this to make their mark.. but I just do not get it. I can understand a little tinkering.. like when AEG relaunched DOOMTOWN. but "significant design changes" ..... wow.. .this is scary stuff.
  11. ridiculous. Set up doesn't take long and is a huge part of a player getting their strategies worked out. There is literally no reason for this to be done remotely, and about a zillion reasons to do it live on game night. Just to restate... set up dose not take anytime at all. It will take far longer to do a single turn than setup. Assuming you have the parts out and ready to go. Sorry but this is the craziest idea I have heard on the Fstar forums ever.
  12. where do you buy he clear bases?
  13. Chaos all the way. I was out by the time Necrons came on the scene... but they are all sorts of awesome as well, well they USED to be awesome before all the lore was retcon'd into space TombLords.
  14. This gets asked a lot... but how can this be confusing? "red is a different colour to blue" "A bastion is a different structure to a city" The card is saying you can use this card to target any planet that has already got ONLY 1 structure, and build on it any structure that is already not on that planet. The confusion I think comes from the two factory thing... but this is not really confusing. The "golden rule" applies. It doesn't matter what the manual says, the card over rides it and the card is extremely clear here.
  15. Purple = Dark Elder Black = Necrons Tan = Tau White / Gray = Nids Easy to have new units colours.
  16. I think that such rigid thinking is bad in this game. While there are grand strategies... there is a lot of reactionary planning you need to do. I am not sure I agree with the entire concept of going in with per-designed "builds". I think this would lock you into predictable patterns and make you much easier to beat, weakening your game immensely. You maybe good for "one" game but next time you play you would be telegraphing you moves from miles away.
  17. Yeah, I get that. Still don't you think that if there are priorities, then adding completely missing races might take precedence over adding mass of faction cards? How about crack comments = joke... don't take things so seriously dude. All I meant is that I feel FFG takes advantage of its customers in some cases.. like the ones I listed in this thread for example, there are more. Oh dude.. totally! I gave up after wave 3 on that one.. I saw it would never end! Armada I haven't even started on. I just started to notice that all I was ever doing was buying expansions.. many of which were coming from FFG. I made the tough decision to cut off all the games that are "endless" Games like X-Wing or Descent for example. Though I still get a few LCG style card games. What I Iook for now are actual complete games. Like you buy a GMT game like Twilight Struggle and that it is.. it is perfect and done. You can play it for decades and its depth and quality make it cool. No extra crap. Most traditional wargames and euro games like say Bruxelles 1893 are complete entities. Play tested to perfection and ready to go.. and most importantly DONE. Buy it own it. F.Stars, imo IS a "done" game. It doesn't need anything really. I am sure there is enough here to play for a long long time. Still, a 40K game missing Trynids? Come on.. that is NOT complete! : )
  18. And Elder is the "anti-bastion" faction I think. If you play a guy who is a big turtler, then Elder are a good faction to pick I feel.
  19. Are you seriously saying there isn't a similarity between computer game dlc and the modern board game expansions? Because that is completely wrong imo and for the same reasons some DLC is hated on, apply to boardgames and FFG is one of the major offenders, just like say Paradox for computer games.
  20. yeah this is a often forgotten rule. Routed units stay routed until the clean up phase at the end of the turn. Also you are not obligated to use a command token, even if you are able to use it. You can just use it for a event draw. Also I need to work on my communication skills, cause I already said all this in my posts but somehow it wasn't getting though! lol
  21. A crack dealer is just providing a product people will buy.. that doesn't mean it is ethically justified. FFG knows all to well the addictive nature of the "collector" and how their fans think. It is exploitive. Just like some lame computer game getting sold for 80bucks and then charging 5 bucks for some new gun skin has computer gamers up in arms. Greedy bastards!
