  1. Is that reasonable? This is a Descent forum. Descent 2nd edition was created using a great 1 vs all system campaign mode. I love it still today, it's my #1 since amazing products like Gloomhaven lack a gamemode: you don't get to face opossing intelligence. So, for 3rd Edition, I'd love an improvement on that. Not some skirmish
  2. Yeah I was saying it would be nice if it featured a Competitive mode; it doesn't have to be exclusive. My fear is that they wont, as all the other major titles I mentioned which completely exclude game modes other than puzzle mode. Look how a poster, a few post above this one ridiculized us for asking this game mode and wants puzzle mode only.. The reality is that that type of player doesn't have enough with Forsthavemn, Gloomhaven, Middara, Etherfields, Tainted Grail, Lord of the rings, Descent app.. they keep going all-in on every new coop product , thus publishers keep pumping them out :(. I am sure that a potential Descent 3rd edition will feature puzzle mode; I just hope it also includes a good gamemode for me!
  3. Here I am hoping and begging that tthis is a new edition and that: PLEASE LET IT NOT BE PUZZLE MODE (solo / "co-op") ONLY It has been so disappointing that every major dungeon crawler product in the last 4 years has been only puzzles.. including FFG's Lord of the rings one. I understand the appeal to publish this kind of product since there's a massive irrational demand for them (BGG's majority of users who go all in on everything at pre-orders and are very loud in rating) but man, is it not unfair that: -Frosthaven -Lord of the rings -Middara -Etherfields -Tainted Grail -Gloomhaven -Descent's last content (all app) Did not offer , not even as an expansion, a gamemode where you would compete against your friends in exciting battles? These are only he games I remember.. they may be more! But I guess it's too late for them to hear me rant, the product may be already done, so fingers crossed!
  4. As some have said, I also don't think this game is more open to forgery than any other. Now what I don't like is that the decklist card is the first card and visible before opening the plastic foil. Specially I dislike that this was brought to our attention months ago, but the newer language versions that started only a couple of weeks ago have the same problem!
  5. This is discuused in previous threads, tons of nice ideas exoposed. I mentioend about mercenary (ally) mechanics, mounts, Free for all modes, skirmish modes.. There's so much that can be done A full rework of the combat mechanic could be nice as Gloomhaven had such unbelievable reception even though it is way more complex than this. But at this point, seeing what is going on with this market I have one desire for 3rd edition above all: please , please, please: REMAIN COMPETITIVE If the amount of sales for those who want solo/coop puzzle modes is too tempting then the app companion works well , but please dont take away the real game mode away from us!
  6. OH NO! While the production of this new LoTR seems good to me, I am not at all interested in a boring full cooperative game. Why could they not make it at least coop/competitive? Anyways no point in speculating much but this is obviously covering grounds that belong to descent.. it may be that they will not release 3rd, and that is a sad thought
  7. Hello! Thank you for posting here. I really like how your scenics+painted fantasy minis come along together. Those are not pictures you'd normally show in the tutorials Descent's expansions have some weird interesting looking monsters, hope you get some eventually, along with any other fantasy miniatures which is by far the best I see from your collection!
  8. This is discussed in another topic. I hope FFG is reading and realizes that we dont want another Imperial Assault, rather: - A campaign focused game. NON COOPERATIVE (there's boring gloomhaven for that and it will stay popular for long) - FFA modes -Big maptiles to play big open field battles -And like many said here, scenarios that use the expansions. -Cool stuff specially for the heroes such as : mounts, mercenaries and global abilities -And finally: No lieutenant/hero/villan packs.. a tiny piece of plastic for $12usd? Please , the greed! Heroes and monster packs were perfect - and not cheap There's so much that could be done... but the market right now seems to be only skirmish (collect individual pricey stuff) and cooperative (unfun for many).. Make Descent Great again by being what it was always supposed to be: a playable and fun rpg!
  9. Totally agree A thing I love about Descent: it feels like a skirmish RPG when you dont have the time/patience/energy for a full RPG. I stopped playing those years ago. RPG market is saturated. but also it is a more reduced one (lack of patience/energy/time)
  10. Hey, I love Descent so much but it's hard to get players to go for it. What saddens me more is to see Gloomhaven having so much success... a game that did not need to be fully coop. But it is. So when I think of a Descent 3ed, I think they will go for skirmish (Army points, maps, like IA) and the campaigns , sadly will be full coop. I just don't have fun with cooperative games at all. But that's the second worry, the first is that FFG seems to be heavily invested in 1 Coop game, 2 LCGs, 1 Miniatures game and 1 skirmish board game. When you think of it, they can broad the customer base on each category with the game they focus on , rather than print more games. I truly don't think they will launch a new Edition, rather, they want to go with RPG.. it seems they are throwing RPG into all their Lores to see which one is the one that sticks. But to end with something positive, I think fan made content for Descent is good.. so I'd encourage to "stay tuned" here for more fan made content. Specially content that will address FINALLY the expansions.. you know all those expansion tiles get rarely used.... Also good to know that people are selling their copies of descent; you can get good deals for your missing expansions
  11. @Corradin if you want to post a picture of the monster Sometimes a hair dryer is better, and sometimes you may want to tear off and reglue the base.
  12. Totally agree in that financially the conversion kit is not appealing for th3 authors - at first glance. I dont see what the problem would be if there is a convrersion kit that would bring all there is in the new game except miniatures. For example. I have spent over 500 usd in descent. Add another 100 usd and hundreds of hours painting minis. I dont like the idea of not using them inthe new game, nor using them as a bad expansion (i.e. current kit will give you more choice of heroes at the start of a campaign, the other dozens of heroes just sit in the box for the rest of such campaign) I'd really luke FGG to be more .. how to put this? Ethical, whe. It comes to temting the consumer. Just look at their cgg where they.. make players buy THREE times the base product in order to play! They could just make a 'bigger' and less expensive core set you know. They simply choose not to Anyways, im voicing this now in hopes descent gets even better. There are too many great competitors out there, a reset kind of new edition may be exactly what could kill this game
  13. I would bet that next year or 2019 will see that new ed. Thwy will use army squads, tournaments.. its just so profitable. What I am REALLY HOPING for is a real conversion kit. something that we would buy instead of a -very expensive- core set. If we dont get one, ill be out of descent
  14. Ah I found it, I was looking at the campaign page. Turns out there is a stats page. Thank you!
  15. Hmm.. you mean the red green bar showing the ratio? Can't see anything there. Would oyu be so kind to screenshot it?
