    RafaelNN got a reaction from Eisenmerc in ‘Black and White’ story discussion   
    I think toturi will recognize aramoros voice, he will conclude the scorpion are trying to make a coup, and will marshall and army to fight back. No coup will actually happen, but to everyones eyes it will be so. In the end everything will be ruined because of miscommunication. "Tragedy is born in the silence of whats left unspoken"

    I think that wasnt the intention in design but once printed they went with raw rather than rai for claritys sake. Thats my theory at least.

    I dont know if its efficient, competitive, or broken. But I find it very thematic that the crab at last have a builing fortresses playstyle. And thats a playstyle that attracts me to play the clan.

    I think thats better done in a case by case scenario based on the person. His main clan of choice, playstyle, interests, etc. At least thats what we try to do here. I always tell people not to buy anything until theyve tried the game, and we are all willing to lend cards to new people, both before they buy stuff for pñaytesting, and whilenthey buy and get up to date, to help them access the entire card pool even if they havent bought everything yet. We have also tried having two tournamet leagues: one with everything and one phased back, with less dynasty packs legal so new guys dont feel left out (we made a core set only when the first pack of the second cycle came out, and introduced -in release order- one pack a month). We're also talking about going with two decks, one of them noob friendly with only some packs available.

    All cards are legal so far. As for how overwhelming the purchases are, it depends on ypur budget and how soon you want to be up to date. Advice I give to people in my local area is to buy 3 core sets first. Then choose your main clan and, if it has a clanpack, buy the clanpack next. Then buy dynasty packs based on card content for said clan. If it has no clanpack out, ignore that part. I consider children of the empire as another dynasty pack for these purposes. If budget is a problem, you arent sure what clan you like the most, or arent sure about the rules, go to a store, borrow some cards, amd try the game before you buy anything.

    Understanding the game, knowing what cards that are played by each clan commonly, Knowing when to retreat from conflicts and so on is how you win games. Memory has a small part to play in the game, yes if you get to see your opponents hand I.e. Meek Informant, Upholding Authority etc... recalling what the opponent has is useful information. However since there are no hand limits in the game many clans play super greedy with cards and players often bid 5 on top of card draw mechanics, writing down a hand of 20 cards will take time, something that is in short supply of at major events since rounds are timed. Quite frankly most of the time when you get to see peoples hands you only need to be concerned with 2 or 3 cards in it to plan the next move carefully which is not very memory intensive at all.

    Sorry, but, this is way off the mark. 
    Aneil is a good player that puts in a ton of work playing the game.  He also doesn't tie himself down to the concept of clan loyalty and plays the best deck, regardless of clan.  The current Shogun has not made any claims about having a photographic memory, but, he's consistently placing highly in every event he plays.  These are players that put in the work to get the results.
    Anyone that puts in the amount of work that these players have will not only greatly improve their play, but, they will gain a better understanding of what to expect.  You'll be able to accurately predict what your opponent is playing when you have a deep understanding of the metagame, like Aneil has.  I consider myself an average player, but, I put in a ton of work to prep for the Seattle Kotei.  Sadly, I was not able to make it, but, my play improved dramatically over the months of practice I put in.  Games often felt like my opponent was playing with their hand revealed because I knew what to expect and how to play around it.
    A photographic memory and/or note taking is not necessary.  It's not going to close the gap in player skill.

    As far as I know casual play only means you either care more about having fun than being competitive and/or play sporadically. It doesnt mean you dont care about the game, or balance, or rule/card clarity, etc.
    Just because you dont care (or dont care much) about statistics, curves, tournament winning decks, etc doesnt mean you dont care about the state of the rules

    RafaelNN got a reaction from LordBlunt in The RL and my take on it   
    Theres not much sense in printing cards if they will be banned. Personally I do think dynasty tadaka is op, but Im not so sure if to the point of being banned. Him being in the rl is ok imo.
    What I do think is that the phoenox stronghold that lrts ypu cast from graveyard is too powerfil. 6 copies of against the wave and supernatural storm is too much, and its strength will only.grow with time. Perphaps thats the card that shpuld be in rl
