Thought i share an email i sent yesterday to FFG. I now this wont change anything and i know some of you might disagree with the content. But im usually not one to speak up and this is the first time i ever written to a company with concerns. But i felt i just needed to get this off my chest. Its just a card game and i know i couldnt do a better job myself.
To Lukas Litzinger.
My native language is swedish so forgive me if my words sometimes comes out wrong. The reason why im sending this message is because i have some heartfelt worries about Star Wars destiny. First of i love the game.
This is my first ccg. I never thought i would buy a ccg. But with the love for your other creations (runebound 3ed), the star wars theme and the going back and forth notion of the game all appealed to me. Ive already collected almost two of everything from the Awakenings set and was looking forward to buy the spirit of the rebellion set. Until i saw some of the spoilers. One of the reasons i love this game is because the back and forth actions and easy gameplay you created and promoted.
Now already in the second set together with some cards from awakenings all that seems to have been destroyed. Now people can start doing many actions in a row and resolve their dice before the opponent can do anything. Dice removal is now out the window and aggro decks that can end the game before it starts. And thats not even considering this was suppose to be an accesible game but now you have to start remebering and counting actions upon actions with ambush on top of that + reys and jango abilities etc etc and wait forever before its your turn again.
If this was your vision from the start then thats okay, but you should have said so then from the start. There is no way ill keep on buying and promote this game to others if this turn into someone doing 7 actions in a row and kill you by turn 2. Why would you make cards like fast hands, force speed and sith holocron to begin with. Let alone for 0 cost. If you dont do enough playtesting im sure there is plenty people willing to help out for free. Thanks for listening to my concerns and i wish you all the best in the future.
