    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.
  2. 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.

    Promo Cards

    Promo decks?
  4. New expansions are interesting. They can reprint quite a few cards and still be pretty new. You could have a whole faction identical before and still have massively different decks. I also bet new factions will spring up and they rotate through them maybe.

    I can go and build a magic deck for 10 dollars, and I will definitely be outclassed and be unable to do anything. Or I could get one of these and still have a shot. These are procedurally generated. I am pretty sure they can hit a balance of characters to not be an autoloss. And they can create flatter powercurves based on rarity. There isn't going to be a common that is just better than otbers. The idea that there will be decks that outclass others feels like a massive assumption considering we have less than 5% of the carss.

    A Waste of Resources

    Well it isn't a magic setting. A smash up setting is very acurate. It is an amalgam of many worlds. There are also the Sage guys.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    That would be permutations. Combinations would be 7!÷(3!×4!)=7×5=35 Permutations only works if there isn't a set order to the houses. There can't be if they are in alphabetical order or something. I guess we will see.

    Starter decks a waste?

    That is exactly what they are Valid decks that are curated to be new player friendly. None of the fancy complex cards. A good way to try out, and where they can use as examples.

    A Waste of Resources

    There wasn't likely to be a replacement for Star Wars or Netrunner until next year at least. And a new Conquest game is unlikely. The point of this game isn't to deckbuild. It is a fun fast-paced game where you don't need to deckbuild or buy hundreds of dollars worth of singles. It creates a sense of ownership by having "your" deck. The game itself seems well designed, and it has as much story as magic originally had.

    Either I don't get it or this is an awfull mess

    Plus a flat cost curve. You don't need to balance for costs. You just make commons at about the same power level, uncommon stronger, and rares strongest of all.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    Yeah. Most basic would probably be having one of every faction representative. Even more ambitious would be having at least one copy of every card in the set.

    Deck Value $$$

    It will absolutely be worth something. Just from the fact that the world champion won with it, regardless of how good it is. It isn't just the decklist they played. It is the literal cards they used. You can use the card they won the climactic match with. Or other prestigious decks that are passed down from one player to another.

    And Garfield even gave a little blurb in the rule book. It feels very much like he is trying to capture his original vision of magic. He can make strong cards like the power 9 and they don't automatically go in every deck. They become these rare things that people can treasure and trade and collecr.

    this is a cheater's dream

    Isn't hard. The Archon has a cardlist, compare it to the online one to verify its identity. Then just compare the deck. It isn't any different from deck checking any other game.
  15. Radix2309

    this is a cheater's dream

    The announcement article mentions registering your deck online. This implies to me a code on the Archon card, but I can't find where they mentioned a code in the articles. Chaotic did it over 12 years ago with codes verifying packs. I don't doubt that if they are procedurally generating the decks, they have a database of every deck printed, and a corresponding code that is assigned to it. Not hard to track and verify at all.
  16. Radix2309

    this is a cheater's dream

    I am going to ppint out there is also a code on the Archon, which presumably matches up with an online decklist. I don't think you can take that. And it is easily verifiable.

    Iiiinteresting

    I count at least 5 distinct "parts" to the card back, Plus colour. Not to mention names and the faction symbols themselves.
  18. Radix2309

    This looks different.

    I think a better term would be blind decks. Cause They Are all kind of sealed. But the winning decks from these tournaments would still be valuable just from being able to say you own it. Not to mention fan organized tournaments with known decks, Or just wanting a specific deck for your own enjoyment.
  19. Radix2309

    This looks different.

    Theoretically a deck is worth 10. Probably a markup for the benefit of knowing what you get. Somewhere between 12 to 15 dollars I think if every deck is equal. Next you could bring it up to 35 total combinations, and examine the share in popularity of decks. Create a popularity percentage based on people who enjoy that combination. So some will be priced higher and others lower than the average just by combination and supply. That is assuming faction options remain available at an approximate 1:1 rate. So 1 set would be 1.5 times more in demand than the the average. Another .5 times less than average. So 1 costs maybe 18, and the other 12. Now finally you look for specific combinations of cards and chase rares without too much subpar cards. Those valuable ones get marked up. Probably up to 20 and even 30 dollars. This is achievable with a database of decks and their match rates, which the app seems to record. Plus community organized databases. Examine cards rate of win over all decklists. Then adjust price based on how big the difference is, Plus demand and supply. So garbage decks would probably be 11 or 12, with the chase powerful decks being 30. That isn't even mentioning that since each deck is unique, they can also get prestige. What is the world champions deck worth just by virtue of being the deck that won? You could record the legacy of a deck and who has played it. A deck passed down from champion to champion would be worth 50 maybe, just from the collectibility aspect.

    this is a cheater's dream

    Exactly. People cheat in LCGs, but usually in low effort ways. If you are going to this effort to counterfeit cards, just use it for a game where they actually offer cash prizes.
  21. Radix2309

    this is a cheater's dream

    I mean you have to replicate their printing process and card stock, Not to mention alter the Archon.
  22. Radix2309

    If every deck is unique....

    Technically yes. But the odds for that are astronomical. Besides they probably have a database of all printed decks and if a new one like it is about to be printed it gets re-randomized.
  23. Radix2309

    this is a cheater's dream

    Ok that is a lot of work, for what payoff? This game seems pretty casual

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    I don't think those numbers are an exaggeration. A single deck of playing cards has more permutations than there are atoms in the universe. We have a 350+ card set, with 36 card booster packs. There are a lot of combinations possible, far more than our brains are capable of comprehending. They could print s single set for centuries and still not even get half of them.

    Late April Fool's Joke?

    It is something new and different. Deckbuilding is how TCGs get players, but this isn't a TCG. It is like taking a eurogame and complaining you can't paint miniatures like in Wargames. If you don't like it, fine. But stop trying to complain about this game because it isn't another magic clone.
