    Super neat! What are the card counts?

    Yeah having seen the card backs now - being a print of the archon, it’s name, and the three factions in the deck - on each card for the deck it makes more sense. And then the printers you described makes sense too. Each deck has a card listing what’s in the deck alongside each card’s rarity - so you don’t have to fill out anything saying what’s in your deck for OP just have your card. And I think that may be open info to your opponent? Haven’t read that far into the rules or faq.

    37 would be one ID card (archon?) and 12 from three separate factions. And from a few pics they have have a unique back to the deck to identify it. My question is how they they got unique deck backs and then how they printed that since a lot of printing in games is setting the templates and repeatedly printing/making the same things over and over. I would love an article just on how they manufactured this game and printed it

    I would think you could relatively easily trade decks with people. Might get crazy though depending on how people start to value what in the game. Im interested in seeing how op is supported and prizes - special card sleeves? Upgraded game components? Alt art won’t really work.

    Updated. Crazy to think I originally started this list just over 2 years ago! Can't wait for more stuff to come out - hopefully it doesn't track 1:1 to HotE schedule, but if that's as bad as it gets that's not horrible

    RollforDamage Uscru Map Breakdown

    Number of players hasn’t been published that I know of. Odds are good between 100-128. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/2/5/the-2018-may-world-championships/ specifics for IA here:

    Updated the list and TL:DR

    Maybe a sticky on each IA product page that said - “unavailable through FFG - purchase through your local game store!” Oh wait, that makes too much sense for FFG to clearly communicate something... I love this company, but can’t stand how bad in general communication is.

    Yeah I’m gonna update this soon. To much time spent prepping for worlds and such. But I’ll get it next time I sit down at a computer

    It happened, we got an expansion

    I think I’m missing something here: does her command card or skirmish card even mention style tokens? I get it if someone doesn’t like more and more tokens for campaign - but she doesn’t seem to use style tokens for skirmish. And this is the skirmish forum. It sure looks like they translated style tokens into the surges rolled = x thing. Which seems pretty neat to me - we’ll see if it is in practice. And loku and Saska (and almost every hero before jabbas realm) are practically unusable because they weren’t priced right/health pointed right/or dice powered right - not because of tokens - as far as skirmish. It apparently took awhile to figure out the power curve and get most new figures onto it. Is it perfect? Nope. Is it a lot better than everything bespin and before? Yep. What’s bad in Jabba’s realm? The rancor? A few slightly expensive things? But almost everything has a place. What about HotE? Clawdites little expensive or not enough health? Or too little synergy currently? Ok - but not hopeless figs. Ahsoka/maul a little hard to synergize with. Jarrod is arguably the most disappointing to me - but he might be good combined with tress for brawler synergy. But the last two boxes and the Jawa wave have introduced some of the best stuff in the game. And the more toys we get the more options there are to smash together and find new synergies. I mean come on, someone has currently turned MHD into a thing and almost everyone has written that figure off since he came out. So I’m just glad we got another announcement and looking forward to more info

    R2D2's Lucky

    I really want to understand this, but none of the arguments make sense. The only thing that makes sense to me here as that the language/terms need to be cleaned up because of this interaction. So you’re saying tough luck and heightened reflexes do not remove a blank “result” from the defense results pool? That somehow, the undefined term “results” (please show me where “results” is defined as a term) doesn’t/can’t include a “blank” “result”. But yet blank is a face on the dice and is a result. How is blank not a symbol or a result - when even R2 references blank as a result? Cards as written call blank a result...thanks R2... It could be cleaned up by changing the wording on heightened reflexes etc to “remove that die from the appropriate pool”. Why doesn’t that card say that instead of what seems more clunky in “remove its results from the defense results”? Or specifying “symbols and accuracy” from the defense results? This really just seems like an ongoing circle of English breaking down in the way the cards are written and terms (“results”) aren’t defined. (Again unless they are clearly somewhere). I honestly don’t care where it lands - but it needs an official explanation/Ruling that is publicly available. The last thing we need is someone arguing over this in a game at a tourney because one guy did some reading and another didn’t and there wasn’t an official answer to go to (like OTL and Collateral Damage - thank you FAQ!)
