      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Altered Cards legality?

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I would like to know if altered cards are legal for sanctioned tournaments like Regional Championships, National Championships and World Championships?

I am thinking about fanmade painting over official legal cards for example, not alternate art promotional cards.

 

I have not yet FFG LCG cards’ example because I am trying to check their legality before altering my own cards.

Here is a link in order to let you see my references:

Thanks in advance.

 

Best Regards,

Rémi.

I guess they are perfectly legal, no matter if the alteration is fanmade art, signed by Lukas, or just moustaches over Kate face :P. As long as you use the cards produced by FFG, and the card is still recognizable.

 

I would like to see those fanmade cards you create, BTW.

It's a gray area. Strictly speaking, they're cards that have been marked or damaged, which should be perfectly legal as long as you have opaque sleeves. Definitely check with the TO ahead of time.

From the official Tourney rules:

 

All Android: Netrunner cards produced by Fantasy Flight Games are legal for tournament play (unless banned). No other cards or proxy cards are permitted. In North America, cards are legal upon their release. Competitors outside North America should check with their TO to determine which cards are tournament legal


Altered cards aren't specifically mentioned, so as such I don't believe there is any official precedent. However, I have seen it said that altered IDs are allowed at TO discretion, with the following provisions:
  • all relevant rules text must be clear and able to be read.
  • your opponent may request you to use an unaltered card (so make sure you have one)
No other altered cards may be used.

Again, this is not officially stated in any rules document, but I believe this was a statement from someone within FFG.

Annotated art cards might be acceptable, but creating your own alternate art cards from scratch would be a bit too far and most probably illegal for tournament level play (and the higher up you go the less I imagine it would be accepted).

 

Even then it would be likely that you would have to have "unadulterated" versions on you just in case.
