    So How far is it going to go ?

    I doubt there will be a new base set. All they need is one beginner friendly set, which they habe with the 40 dollar box. After that you just get the deck you want. I definitely expect new factions, but also some old factions with new cards. They will probably still have some reprints, but eith enough new mixed in so that the decks are still new. Especially when combined with new factions.

    this is a cheater's dream

    It was mentioned in one of the videos that the absolute max copies of a card in a deck are 16.

    33% of each house would be an entire deck if they were in every deck. I doubt thwre is any card that is in every deck, that would kind of ruin the fun. You may be thinking of commons, since you will probably have some consistent commons across your decks.

    Announced: Arkham Horror Third Edition

    I agree. Not as much this year. Could just be an anomaly in the long run.

    I don't see why you need to update old decks. Since every deck is unique, all a new set does is change what you can deck. It is only a problem if there is some massive power creep. Which they can counteract just by adding some weaker cards to balance it out. Also there isn't a high probability of almost identical decks. There are 50 cards in a factions. So probably 15 or so rares in each faction. Plus the uncommons and commons. The combinations of cards easily numbers in the thousands. Then multiply it by another thousand combinations twice for other factions. Sure they advertised septillions of decks, but realistically they will print less than a billion decks. We don't even know what the algorithm is. Or even the bell curve of cards. If you want to play new mechanics, Just buy a new deck from that set.

    A concern regarding sealed decks...

    Yeah the box is almost definitely sealed.

    After Reading Rules

    Don't want to spoil, but there may be a way to get keys before start of turn.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    What kind of cards would be so unbalanced? Characters are probably half the set, and most characters would be reasonably balanced against each other. A decent deck should have enough to be able to contest a stronger deck, especially with luck of the draw in play.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    I doubt any of these decks are that good that they can stomp other decks consistently. Maybe a higher win percentage against the field, but not dominating. Besides if a deck does that, It is only one player. You are assuming there are cards at common that just completely outclass most other cards.

    How much do you expect to spend?

    100 total maybe. I will get a couple decks to start, and then buy some blind decks for tournaments or when I get bored with my current decks.

    How Will Expansions Work?

    They can do new factions, but only bring back some of the old factions. So take 4 of the old set factions and 3 new ones. The old ones get a few reperints, but also some new stuff.

    Cards and their value!

    I am willing to be power level goes up with rarity though. It allows them to have more powerful effects without making overpowered decks since rares show up much less frequently.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    The casual market who only buy the core set for LCGs is actually pretty big. These decks are reasonably priced that people can just pick a clue up and play, Or get as presents for their kids. The casual crowd will easily get these.
  16. Or they just want to try out alternative models that appeal to different people. It makes sense to consolidate the LCG line under a 2 or 3 competitive games. There is only so much market for them.

    Punishing skill...

    These aren't randomly generated, they are procedurally generated. When combo cards are in the pack, the algorithm makes sure other combo pieces are there. Like tribal effects. It isn't truly random. Or else rarity wouldn't work.

    Between the Lines - Dragon Fiction

    Scorpion had some good stuff, like he Made magistrate in the duel. And I can understand Kachiko's motivation. She feels superior and thinks she can run things better. Shoju hasn't really shown what he is up to yet, but seems to ultimately be in favour of keeping the Empire strong and the scorpion as perceived to be weak so they can keep sabotaging other clans.

    How Will Expansions Work?

    I can see old houses mixed with new houses, but they will be part of the new set. They aren't going to mix sets. It is like how Magic reprints cards like Llanowar Elves to death. They can reprint them in the new set. We will probably get a mix of old and new houses.

    Cards and their value!

    Individual cards hold no value, but a whole deck does. Rare means most decks don't have that card. If you want to play with that card it will be harder to get a deck that does. I fully expect powerful rare creatures, the Blue Eyes White Dragon of Keyforge. That in itself will make the deck more valuable just by being in it.

    How Will Expansions Work?

    Well they will be self-contained for what is in the decks. But they will likely reprint cards from older sets into newer ones.
  22. It's like sealed, but you can actually use the deck after and not get destroyed.

    Punishing skill...

    How are we white knighting this game? It hasn't been previewed, let alone released. You are the one coming on here and posting doom and gloom. It isn't an objectively bad business model, there are plenty of us interested in it. I don't know what I am getting in a tcg, I still get packs. You don't stop our enjoyment of the game. But you do do is derail conversations and create a toxic atmosphere. If you don't like it fine, but stop going into other people's threads and saying the game sucks.
  24. Ok we get it. Now stop raining down on everyone's positivity. They aren't ending LCGs for this. It is possible to have more than one game. They habe both X wing and Armada because they are different games. This isn't made to be another LCG, It is meant to be new and different. If you don't like it, don't play. No one is forcing you to. Neither is anyone forcing you to post here. You don't contribute other than saying it sucks.
