Re: Leia's Blaster Rifle + Rebel Artillery

2. After the target goes lost, you would like to play Rebel Artillery. Unfortunately, there is a problem. You are unable to initiate Rebel Artillery because you are unable to target a just-hit character. The character card in the DS lost pile is not active on the table (and is also no longer hit). ...

Leia's Blaster Rifle + Rebel Artillery

Leia's Blaster Rifle: target hit if destiny +1> defense value. If hit by Leia, target is lost. Rebel Artillery: if you just used a weapon (except a lightsaber or epp) to 'hit' a character or starship, opponent loses 1 force. Leia has her Rifle and hits a DS character. The DS character goes lost, but...

Re: Ask the TD/Judge

I find it strange that you would be required to leave the room. I've competed at multiple Magic the gathering Grand prixs and you aren't required to leave the room. You can watch other competitors games as long as you keep a respectful distance and don't discuss the game play. Scouting out your opp...

Re: Some Observations from a Past Player

Please tell me you are not trying to compare a Non profit Group of 20-30 people and a multinational billion dollar company with tens of thousands of employees, shareholders and a public IPO structure? Please tell me you are not serious, because that would be intellectually crazy. I am at a loss for...

Re: WYS Errata

I have had fun thus far playing in the World Series. I've lost 4 nail-biter games to great players; 3 of which have had a long history of winning in SWCCG. At first I thought Hitco was going to be the deck that everyone was going to go crazy about and would dominate Worlds. However, I would like to...

Re: Some Observations from a Past Player

Depending on who is being asked, a lot of my decks during my competitive play years were or were not NPE. I could provide a lengthy list of tactics I employed to circumvent the natural Force drain/battling balance of the game. I agree absolutely with your statement about "alternative win conditions...

Hello. I believe your answer or the insight you seek regarding the direction of the game is rooted in the history of who is running the game. But, no one will tell you who has been in charge of what since 2002. All of the Advocates are listed as being Advocates. They're all cool people, even if we ...

Legend is maybe the least fun deck I have ever played with or against. Force Projection is a big part of that (the redraw is also a big part of that).
Would it work better if redrawing was a separate mechanic from "cancel" + "draw"? That prevents a lot of the interactions like GLiG1/Map.

Re: Variance should be Paramount

A lot of what you said is key. My personal opinion is that we should reduce down the power level of cards so they are in balance with Decipher cards, but I think a reset is close that it's probably smartest to do it then (though I think it would be a great exercise for D&D to try it for the next se...

Re: Variance should be Paramount

When I first returned, I heeded the advice of picking a deck for either side and getting to know it, so I set out looking at deck lists for a few decks, settled on some choices, and built them. In my early matches I found that if I had made a choice in deckbuilding to include a card that wasn't sta...

Let's talk about Resets

We discussed Resets a bunch in Slack this morning. It started with R3-T2's errata (how it doesn't need it), then there was discussion about errataing the errata (so that it would actually work), and we got into the depths of Resets. This question came up: i'm dark side. i steal my opponent's mercena...
