  1. I live in Roseville and just played this for the first time last night! Where do you guys play?
  2. Somebody start a Discord server for this game.
  3. Over half of those dead cards are dynasty, so those characters don't really help you there. There is no extra value. In a competitive environment, you're not getting much extra fate before the game is over. You're looking at essentially a blank stronghold T1-2 and, like I said, a weaker board state and probably more broken provinces once you do start ramping up because you can't defend meaningfully while still exploring all four provinces by T2. Then you not only need to break 2-3 provinces starting T3, but also defend your remaining province and SH. That's a tall order. It's better to get fate early than later in this game.
  4. Again, everything that we got that is good is really only effective for HMT. And battle maidens... Yumino is garbage and doesn't even see play in my honor tech/battle maiden deck! What's really sad, though, is how they crapped all over Utaku Rumaru. Her passive is decent, but her ability needs to have 1) won conflict 2) discard a card 3) participating character OTHER THAN HERSELF. Is it too much to ask for her to just honor a character when she wins a conflict? Come on...
  5. ShSh's problem is they need to spend resources to explore 4 provinces in 2 turns. This doesn't allow for defense. So you're looking at starting T3 with 1-3 broken provinces before your Stronghold starts netting you money. Aranat is a bad play vs 4/7 clans: Crab WotC (auto lose), Crane Magistrate reveal T1 (auto lose), Scorpion KK Poison, and Unicorn HMT will run through you for 3 breaks. Border Fortress is dead T2 if you're lucky enough for them to hit it first turn. Chasing the Sun is bad and dead T3. Farseer is dead T3. Daiyu is excellent T3+ Speak to the Heart is excellent T3+ Trailblazer is dead T3. Outflank is dead T3. Child of the Plains is dead T3. ShSh's direction toward neutral characters also has diminishing synergy with Shiotome Encampment as well as the Unicorn-only cards like Curved Blade, Utaku Steeds, and Speak to the Heart. But ultimately, once you start pumping out fate on T3, the you're usually playing catch-up and a couple turns of extra fate isn't enough to stop the bleeding and, yes, buying weak-ability Unicorn characters.
  6. It's obviously not just Uji. Shiro Shinjo is weak and has no support. MotC got Kyuden Kakita which already has plenty of support. Take Dragon stronghold and make it better? Cool. Then you have Uji (doesn't need to be discussed) and Yuri who can shut down MIL opponents - especially both HMT Takamori is freaking insane Gossip is obviously insanely strong and The Spear Rushes Forth for a free specific bow with practically zero "cost". Anyway, Crane pack blew Unicorn pack out of the water and Crane was already top-tier.
  7. The whole Inheritance has been leaked. Unicorn also knows their Lion and Crab cards. Trust me when I say we're still not winning any Koteis any time soon.
  8. They've never won a significant event and Warriors of the Wind was too little, too late. Now we're about the level we should have been a year ago. Fast forward to the Crane, Crab, and Lion packs, and this Inheritance Cycle and we're back to the bottom of the barrel.

  10. If Core never gets re-done, Unicorn will forever be UN-competitive. I'm really hoping for a Core 2.0.
  11. Unicorn was brought up to where they should have been a year ago. They're nowhere near competitive still. Crane and soon the Lion packs make Warriors of the Wind look silly.
  12. Balanced stats are bad in Unicorn. High glory is bad for almost every clan. Together they create the ultimate troll community card! There's a reason we don't play Yumino. Even with this new steed, we won't be playing Yumino.
