    I kid   That is a good rules wording  catch.  Getting this out in open now will spare FFG the need to create a Rearview Mirror upgrade card.

    I'm not sure there is more to add to that title honestly.

    Its incredibly disappointing that Specter Cell is what it is. At least locally, anyone who played it stopped playing it, we had our regionals with 0 specter cell lists. It was good. It made the game great again. 
    Your move next, FFG.

    When worlds got announced we planned on going, 3 of us at least, maybe 4.
    Then the limited 40 spots (for 80 total with 40 reserved for event winnters) filled up instantly
    Then Specter Cell got boring to play against
    So we pretty much gave up our plans for Adepticon back in January. Last year's Worlds, I am told, was amazing and at FFG HQ. 
    What a mess this year is with Specter Cell and the smaller Worlds tournament.

    Kalandros got a reaction from lologrelol in A fundamental flaw in these games.   
    I've played a lot of different miniatures games over the last 10+ years, and many board games.
    Every time its the same story for competitive lists - optimize everything to the maximum, find every loophole, abuse everything thats overpowered.
    Now my biggest problem with Legion is how pointless and borderline useless most upgrades are - why spend points on upgrading 1 unit with 20 to 30 points of extra things when an extra unit - especially the "cheese" of triple snipers - costs almost as much? Why put a more expensive weapon like the rocket launcher on storm troopers when the DLT is just hands down better?
    Why come up with all these extra interesting upgrades only to have no one use them?

     
    Why, instead, don't we have a set price for a unit, and within that set price you may select up to 'x' upgrades or 'y' value of upgrades ?
    Why aren't all weapon options exhaustible so that both have the same limit but different uses? Different roles.
     
    Something like Storm Troopers cost 80 points for 4. 
    In that 80 points, the 4 troopers cost 40 - you may select 40 points of upgrades - the officer or med droid being 20 each would leave you 20 more points - either 20 pts for a DLT or the rocket launcher, or points for extra things like recon intel, grenades, etc.  But if you don't go for the more expensive officer / med droid, then you can still take the 5th guy for 10 pts, the weapon for 20 pts and still have 10 pts free for the extra upgrades.
     
    What this comes down to is that regardless of how anyone equips their troopers, they will always have the same price - 80 points, and all start equal at 4 troopers - but the cost doesn't increase depending on what you equip on them but rather the cost of upgrades is already included in the initial price, they are just not selected yet. 
     
    Storm Troopers  80 Points
    - Extra Trooper 10 points
    - DLT Trooper 20 points
    - Grenades 5 points
    - Grappling hooks 5 points
     
    thats just an example of how it could work and should work - you pay 80 points regardless of what upgrades you take.
     
    I really dislike the current restriction where everyone goes for max activations and seldom takes a bunch of different upgrades because it ends up costing more than a new unit entirely. 
     
    Anyway, that was my rant, I know its pointless as it would require an overhaul of all the cards and whatnot~ but I think its a fundamental flaw of the game to be the way it is right now in list building.

    A mechanic to make too many units less interesting by not letting them remove suppression and panicking more easily then?

    We've had an even bigger problem for the Canadian Nationals - they had none of the prize packs for any of the games, told we'd "receive them later" - last we heard, like 4-6 weeks ago, they were on their way...
     
     still waiting on any new info.. cause no one's received anything.
