  1. The moment I saw the disgusting logo from the digital game I knew something is wrong. Then I saw that it works with a companion app. Solid no.
  2. Celebrimbor's Secret must be the rarest AP right now. Everyone wants Galadriel and her ring!
  3. Link to the Geek List (scroll down to find it, it's item 95) To be noted that it overtook Arkham Horror (LotR is 6th and AH is 7th).
  4. I think EDGE is responsible for that. The German and French editions are plenty to be found. When I was looking for the Black Riders I would only find the German, French and Italian version. The English versions are running out faster.
  5. I am speechless.. edit: seems like I am going to Germany next March...
  6. Wow that's really amazing! I am surprised that this is the first conference for such a long running game. Glad to see it's going to take place next year as well. Hope FFG also puts some effort to promote the game. Cult of the new is good and all, but this game is truly a gem! Hope to see some action in Europe as well!
  7. I am play a Gondorian Fire deck (T/Aragorn, L/Denethor and Arwen) these days and Firefoot sounds good in theory. I was using Warhorse so far but now swapped it for Firefoot for science . Until now, I am usually dealing +10 damage with Aragorn every turn twice (with Warhorse). Firefoot seems to be more situational on paper. And seems to do nothing when you have to deal with a shielded unique enemy.
  8. Here's the article. Has anyone played them to share their experience?
  9. Thank you very much GrandSpleen. That was very helpful!
  10. For example. A hero (with a weapon attached) attacks and destroys an enemy. Scenario 1: Can I play two Foe-Hammers from my hand for the same single enemy that was destroyed? Scenario 2: I play Foe-Hammer and draw 3 cards. Say the third card is another copy of Foe-Hammer. Can I play that one as well in light of the same enemy that was destroyed earlier? Scenario 3: I play Foe-Hammer and draw 3 cards. Say the third card is a Daeron's Runes. I play DR and draw 2 more cards the second of which is another copy of Foe-Hammer. Can I play that copy of Foe-Hammer in light of the same enemy that was destroyed earlier?
  11. If what he said there was just "air" he better...
  12. My bad. Copied the wrong link. Replaced it above. Take a look
  13. https://ringsdb.com/decklist/view/10291/shield-brakers-2.0 Refined my deck that aims to nullify enemy defenses! Edit: replaced link
  14. So basically an adaptation would require a talented developer and not a cash grab outsourced studio. It can't be impossible to do this.
  15. I asked their PR person on one of the twitch streams whether that is an option and he basically said there is no chance. They will focus on that version. I don't get it though. They have this community, a very well built game and the possibility to make the fanbase double dip on a digital 1:1 adaptation while bringing in new players. FFI seems to be constantly in damage control mode with this game.
  16. I was just wondering. Is it just an art piece or is it something from the LotR lore? it doesn't remind me of something in particular. Maybe it's an orb? A Palantir? But what is the ring around it?
  17. Welcome to the game and community! You are in for a treat. The game is awesome! Cheers!
  18. Sorry for the rising this thread again. As the fellow member above, I am also interested in those files. None of the links work anymore. Anyone can help?
  19. Hey. Don't usually pay attention on releases, but how fast do the nightmare decks come after a saga box is released. If I am not mistaken, the last two have not even been announced. Right?
  20. Oh thank you very much! I will try to make it from Paris! edit: just checked the info. I won't be making it this time, but I'll keep an eye out for the future, thanks again!
  21. That's what worries me too. More people seem to dislike the game than like it. And this might discourage some from trying out the tabletop. This FFI project looks so poorly put together, it's embarassing. I am surprised they revealed that they outsource development. Such a bad image for an "indie" studio...
  22. I was reading this attempt of PR and interpreted it as follows: We are not really a video game studio. We outsource small tasks like coding and asset development in order to have more time for outsourcing more stuff. This way we can create more hits that follow the steps of the Lord of the Rings: the Living Card Game. We are about 12 people in here. Our designers dismantle the tabletop version and our artists organize the assets FFG gave us in folders so we can email them to the outside crew. We also throw the word Paris in here, because it's cool. Bonjour! Since we are not a serious video game developer we are relying mostly on FFG and Asmodee. We are constantly calling Caleb for some help but he doesn't pick up for some reason. This is a student project for college credits. We want to stress this because our game is basically HeartStone's UI with 3/10 of LotR LCG. We consider this a new and unique game that 30-40 (24 hour peak) players want to play. Making a faithful port, i.e. adopting the tabletop 1:1 would probably be way better, but it wouldn't justify us taking unnecessary risks which will look way cooler when they will make our biopic. In addition, as you can tell from our recent change in monetary policy, taking risks means not really thinking ahead or reading the market. First of all, by occasional we mean often. Since we have zero faith in our product we treat whatever players come our way as test subjects in order to understand what we want to make. This might make the final game 10% more appealing to any potential gamers that still care after all this. As mentioned above, we don't really have a plan. We feel that what we gain in adaptability and real-world player feedback more than makes up for any instability or incomplete polish, the latter two being completely irrelevant when it comes to a good first impression. We also stream the same quests over and over again and press refresh on Chrome once in a while to see if there are any new posts on the steam forums. We make sure to address only the hyper positive ones and not the ones with criticism since this is Early Access. Our dream is to make the money that FFG makes selling from Adventure Packs and box expansions without printing cards. We don't make a 1:1 adaptation of the tabletop but would really like a 1:1 adaptation of the money it makes. After the big success of the Lord of the Rings: the Living Card Game, we are carefully thinking which game to simplify next and offer low effort DLCs for. Stay tuned to see which two favorite franchises we have chosen.
  23. I opened the new article on the front page with excitement only to realise it is about the digital game. Why dont they change the tag?
