I guess some box expansions got canned

It is a future I don't want. If it could be fun for MoM, it would be a real waste for descent.

As the App are, I rather prefer play a video game than a board game. And on top of that, I like playing the Overlord, maybe more than heroes

Many people want it, because Descent is then a real Coop-game and most playergroups have only 2 players.

I think that MoM2, the Descent 2 APP RtL (for free) and the IA-APP (for free too) is a test too, to see what the people want and what must have a modern game.

I'm playing descent with a friend from 3 years now, we are only 2, we switch places and we play each hero each time.

I'm played a few time the APP, it's so boring that I'm never going to play it again. A real player cannot be replaced by an app, not the one they bought. Maybe a real IA could have a chance, but not the one we have. If the futur of FFG is to rush toward brainless monsters and only rolling dice with no tactics at all, then I'm going to see elsewhere if I find what i'm looking for.

if you mean the App is boring, then play they at level *hard* or with not the best heroes/classes.

yes, "Frostgate" is boring, but "the Delve" is nice and campaigns are nice too.

But i play Coop-Pods too.. i have 10 Coop-adventures (7 and a big campaign about Skarn) without a app, all in german language:

It's nothing about hard or not, and even the POD are boring. A real player will adapt his tactics depending on the other player(s), ajusting his gameplay, etc ... The app or the POD bring only random effects with the random of the dice, for a random play.

I like playing the app because then there's no loser. That's the most important part of it I'd say.

When I'm playing the overlord it makes me feel like a huge jerk when I win, it's not fun for 4 people then because they've got smashed. And because this game snowballs it often means it stays not fun for them as we go on. The app totally removes that problem.

 

And yea it means I can play it two player without it being....rubbish.

I know about the 3 Official ones; which is the source of the other 7? Thank you.

The 7 others (source see up) are from the german community.

The english translating of the legacy was stopped, because RtL-App come out to this time :

If you lose against the app, you all lose. And if you win, the app loses. Just a point of view. And if there is no risk of losing, is it really playing ?

@rugal, playing can simply mean "enjoying to play a game with your friends". Winning and/or losing is not necessary 🙂

I like the APP as an option as it is now. I don't like the App being compulsory though.

we lost often the APP, because we play the Monsters moves how with Overlord.

The time pressure can be hard if you get stuck somewhere.

And the Coop-Pods really played are very hard. No time. In last 10 days we lost two and win one Coop-Adventure.

But the game with Overlord ist nice too..i love Descent very much because we have FOUR kind of gaming here:

-Overlord vs Players

-Auto Overlord vs Players to play the orignal Campaigns (Fan-Project)+ random Deeper Dungeons (Fan-Expansion)

-Coop-PODs vs Players (+the Coop Fan-Projects ) 

-APP RtL vs Players with Campaigns and 2 other kind of game (Frostgate and the Delve).

we need now only a offical editor for the APP (near easy to use how the Quest Vault)  to make self hundreds of App-Adventures too.

I was thinking about the blue X, and it occurred to me- if you want a scout or healer class and you want to avoid the X as much as possible, you could pick Widow Tarha or Reynhart with these new hybrids.

As bad as the quest vault went I can't imagine having the adding another hurdle would make things better....

I love the app so I can solo play or play co-op  with my wife. When I solo, I love testing and seeing what different heroes and combos look like in practice. It helps my turn as an Overlord. 

If they keep going with the app and publish more book adventures (incorporating the expansions) that would my ideal for keep this game fresh and not feel abandoned. There is so much play ability here already, that these new class cards are icing for this glorious cake.

There is so much physical content out there already. Four full campaigns (five if you count Shadow Rune). A full campaign probably takes a minimum of 30 hours, so that’s at least 150 hours of fun. Then there are tons of heroes, classes, monsters, and plot decks, so if you are lucky enough to have played every campaign once, you can replay them with new hero and overlord combinations.

If you don’t want to play or can’t play a campaign, you can choose any quest from a campaign and play that. There must be over a hundred quests you can try with different heroes and classes, and that’s in addition to the three dungeon crawl expansions, and all that completely ignoring the digital content.

I don’t know about you guys, but by the time I’ve played everything I bought for this game, I would be more than ready to move onto a new game.

Edit: My point is that I think no more physical content needs to be made.

I disagree, but for different reasons. I'd like more content just cause I use mainly the tiles on my own game. And descent at this point lacks ice and desert themes. To tell the truth, it's been years I don't play real descent, and that's why I'm not interested in this new expansion, probably made only with cards for classes.

I do want more content, but I recognize the staggering amount of content this game already has and I’m fine with Lost Legends rounding off the game. (Though an updated monster deck and a new OL class or two wouldn’t be unwelcome).

Pipe dream, but I *do* hope for an arctic/tundra expansion, since that has so much potential. Spruce trees would make great art/obstacles, snow/ice terrain, cold weather... it’ll never happen, but I like the idea and the game has room.
