Just picked up the game…

33 posts in this topic

Aside from unique objective sets, there is also the possibility that one side will get three new (non-limited) objective sets in a Force Pack and the other side will get two, and then, to keep the cardpools equal, you'd see this configuration flip-flopped in the following Force Pack. This would prevent it from becoming a situation where nearly a third of the objective sets in the game are one-per-deck.

I was wondering about this, although in a much more positive way. I think that having a significant part (20-35%) of the objectives as "one-per-deck" would make deckbuilding even more interesting, provided that

a) the majority remains "doubleable", thus making the push for redundancy still true

b) the one-per-deck are interesting enough to be picked despite having to renounce redundancy

Again, this is where the uncertainty of the deliverables raises disconcerting questions to me about the game. I have thoroughly enjoyed my interaction witht the game and the community hithertofore, but buying complete sets with "all you need" is still a skeptical concept to me.

Well I got a second core set today and also picked up 200 Dragon Sleeves (red and blue) and 100 of the LE sleeves (Lightsaber and Emporer design). Played 2 more games today, did the starter decks of Jedi and Sith, each deck one once each.

Now that I've opened the second core, I'm definetly happy I bought it. It's amazing the synergy you can get with just having 2 copies of some of the sets. 

I'm hoping the new expansions had some Enhancement hurt to the DS, Log Trap was wrecking my face when my opponent had it out.

I am not sure why you are skeptical but having collected every LCG except CoC I will answer. In every chapter, data, adventure, battle pack you get playsets of what you need in them. Star Wars will be different in how the objective sets work but you will get 2 copies of most OSets except the limit of one OSets. 

So in Hoth Cycle Force pack 1 Desolation of Hoth we get OSets 37-42. 

 

37 Rebels - Hoth Operations - 2 copies

38 Jedi - 2 copies

39 LS limit of one 

40 Sith - 2 copies

41 Imperial Navy - 2 copies

42 DS neutral - Shadow in the Frost - limit of one

10 objective sets - 60 cards

Thanks for the links. You are always very helpful, but I am always skeptical … ;)

MJA, unless you want extra copies of cards to avoid swapping cards in and out of decks, there is not competitive reason what so ever to get a second copy of a chapter pack.  One chapter pack will provide the maximum of cards you can put for a legal tournament deck for all of the cards included in the pack.

 

I know where you are coming from, I have a CCG background as well (and played Competitive Magic for years), that is what makes the LCG model so attractive.

Yes thank you very much. Made the choice of buying stuff locally very easy indeed. I'm happy that the expasions are only going to require a single "booster" purchase instead of two, the wallet and the wife love that idea!!
