      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

Nobody saw that coming.........

 

same happened to Khazad Dum and the Sagas weren´t on time also. Just get used to it.

At least it leaves some time between releases to play with your cards.

Joining in in all the clamour and lamentation! Well - I still haven't played much of Heirs of Númenor or Against the Shadow, so I think I'll be fine for a while longer.

It's a bummer, true. But to be frank I already suspected this when they anounced it the first time since there were still two Numenor APs to be released. After BoG release article was out just last week I was already pretty sure we won't see this expansion this year. Well, yeah, I still didn't pick up all the other packs yet so I am not too unhappy...although I am really looking forward to this one and plan to pick it up day one. :P

Well, at least they're getting better at letting us know the release dates for expansions. I especially appreciate the exact date of release they've been doing. That helps my LOTR:LCG-focused anxiety disorder stay in check...

Yeah, that does kind of suck. But I don't think It'll be that big of a delay, I would hope. So what if we skip a month if we can still finish up the Against the Shadow Cycle! 

 

And honestly, come Q1 2014, we will have all forgotten about this delay...

Unless they mean last week of March.... hopefully not.

So I've been musing on WHY Voice of Isengard might be delayed and basically everything comes down to either production or design.  Under production I see two possibilities:  1)  They literally can't get enough production time from their supplier because of some other games that are coming out.  2)  They can't get all of the art work done in time due to their large art needs.

 

Or design... This is where it gets interesting.  Since the Doomed player cards were spoiled I've been worried about the mechanic.  For one thing, I've been using Strider all through the Gondor cycle and thought I would be moving on to a new hero for Rohan, but with that mechanic Strider becomes SO powerful it's crazy.  Everybody will want him on game night.  (And with the ruling that his ability can be used once for each player in the game it borders on game breaking.)  So that's kind of where I think the issue really lies.  I've a feeling that they found something in play testing that they felt they needed to address and so had to delay the release.

 

Obviously this is all pure speculation, but we have plenty of time to do it.

Strider as a Spirit Glorifindel was broken from the begin. I was pretty sure one day errata will come for them. With new cycle Strider become crazy powerful. We will get errata for him or something.
