    iLiveAGAIN got a reaction from Cronus269 in Where the fluffin muffins are the expantions?   
    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!!!

    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?

    re-reading the article it seems to imply that the game is a strictly 2-player game.   It says lines like "If you are THE Imperial player", or "The rebel player".

    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.

    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.

    well your right... faction changes that completely swap out say "wold eaters" for "Thousand Sons" sure... a little redundant imo, as there is plently of "game" here already. It will take many, many MANY plays to explore what we have.
     
    As for heroes... well that is exactly what I do not want. New rules and mechanisms getting added on a already meaty 4-5 hour game.
     
    Same as above, there is enough here to give a mass of games before you ever need extra stuff. I mean  look at Chaos of the Old World, we have played that game like a zillion times and it is still great (I have horned rat but we rarely use it). A game like F.Stars as it is a FFG game will have new additional stuff like "heroes" (maybe) before anyone has even explored the options of the existing game.
     
    These are just my own opinions... but that is how I see it. The only reason I am curious if there will be an expansion is that the two best 40K races are not even in this game and it is turning off a LOT of my 40K mates who otherwise would love this game. Now yes, you could say a salamander chapter fan might feel the same about ultrmarines.. but at least the race human is represented!

    Sure. I own Star Craft and the expansion (not the promos though). We even busted it out and played a game of it this weekend just for fun after F.Stars. If you can not see the similarities between the mechanisms of these games then, ... well. I do not know what to say. Something being similar dose not mean it is bad, and F.Stars is obviously a different game. No one is saying it is a reimplementation. There are direct similarities, this can not be denied by ANYONE that has played Star Craft.. which is why it keeps getting compared by us older gamers that played Star Craft a lot. Besides.. being like Star Craft is a GOOD thing.
     
     
    If / When, and I think it is likly we will see more races. Then there WILL be unique models for them.. just like there is for the default races. I am not sure that we need "chapters" and the like for all the various races. I think the logical thing to do would be to add the actual MISSING races. LIke Tau, Necrons, Dark Elder, Maybe Chaos Demons (as that is a legit separate entity to Chaos Marines now)
     
    A simple card replacement pack could make unique chapters like Space Wolves or w/e.. but I would MUCh prefer to see actual missing races.
     

    Are you kidding me? Imperial Assault is basically an empty box. You need to buy expansions just to play it. I mean.. yeah there is a game there but it isn't really the game. I know people that have vowed to never buy a FFG game after opening that complete rip off. How about Eldritch Horror? There isn't a player who dosen't say the base game is short on cards. In a single playthough you might go though the deck 3 or even 4 times and the item deck twice. Then only a few weeks latter.. BANG a "expantion" (the small box one) comes out adding more cards to all decks... that is a perfect example of an expansion that should have been in the base set.
     

    This is exactly what I hope they do not do, and it is what I am waiting for before I buy the game. If they just add new factions as card upgrades and not actual new races, then what is the point. F.Stars is an extremely good game.. it doesn't need tons of extra crap complicating thing.. but what it dose need is the missing factions. They should add new factions before anything that adds new rules or mechanisms.
     
     
     
    haha... Yeah I can see the contradiction but there is a difference between an "expansion" and just stuff that should have always been in the games. In the old days an expatiation would come out after the game has been out for years and the players were champing for there old game to be "shaken up". Nowadays expansions are planned before the game is even made, they are in fact just part LEFT OUT of the initial release.
     
    I have nothing against expansions.. when they are good expansions. Adding new factions for example is a good thing. So, yeah I am asking for that. New factions is an example of a "worthy" expantion.. not just some money spinner like many of FFGs things.
     
    Still, say Descent 2.0.. giving players models for everything in the box, apart form the Boss Monsters, and then selling them separately so it is nearly as expensive to get a few models to complete the base game as ity was to BUY the base game.. that is stupid. Those models should have been included, you know.. like EVERY other thing in the base set has a model. They literally give you a model for everything ... but these Boss models which also happen to be the focus of the scenarios.. so not matter what monsters you use, even if you have all the old D1 stuff... these are still cardboard chips.. while everything else is a model.This is just one of many examples. I have already talk about EH and IA.
     
    As for Conquest and the other LCGs. I collect a few LCGs as well as others like Doomtown and I liken the LCG format to an abusive spouse. Where I am the one being abused. Saying.. I left my husband (the TCG) who used to beat me so badly I went to the hospital with broken ribs and cracked jawbone regularly and am now with my boyfriend (the LCG) and he beats me up, but  only get bruises and the occasional break... doesn't mean the boyfriend is still a cool guy. Still we love him and think he is so much better.
     
    Just because the TCG is unbelievably terrible for consumers, especially for collectors like me and the LCG is MARGINALLY better.. doesn't mean the LCG is still not a massive wallet vacuum. It isn't as bad as a TCG.. but it is still pretty bad.

    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.

    iLiveAGAIN got a reaction from Tear44 in Question on Bastions   
    exactly.
     
    Bastions are really overlooked in "learning" games.. People I have noticed tend to start getting them late in the game.... but seriously.. Bastions are extremely powerful. After a few games I have noticed these come out a lot faster to hold locations and in turn this effects player choices about moral cards. Also another overlooked rule is that building retain ownership of the planet, even if you have no units there and Bastions can fight. Think of them as entrenched units or something. So even if you have no units your opponent still need to do a combat to take the planet and destroy it or win the moral fight and you can not bombard the planet unless you have the upgrade to allow you to hit Bastions.
     
    In short.. they are awesome.. use them and use them a lot.. (well, within reason : )

    iLiveAGAIN reacted to xfoley96 in Dose the new expansion not integrate at all?   
    The new expansion does remove the old museum adventure cards from the base and Unseen Forces, but there are new adventures that include the blessed/cursed conditions as penalties and rewards (and when they are included, you are given a choice of 2 different sets of penalties/rewards, in case you don't own UF).  There probably aren't as many opportunities to be blessed as there were with the old adventures, but I think that's a good thing.
