Re: Current Rulings/Errata

Here is the last batch of rulings from the Rules Team before Worlds. Nearly all of them are minor housekeeping issues, and will not be relevant to any competitive decks. The main one for players preparing for Worlds to focus on is the ruling on Mercenary Slavers, which explains in detail how the "tr...

Re: ABYSS AND CHASM

At this point I am not sure what the full extent of the change will be, but the original plan was merely to move the line from the shields into the rules. The other existing rules, that substituted draws still count as destiny draws and just drawn, but cannot be modified, canceled, or reset, would r...

Re: Special Anakin rules?

The only other thing I can think of is that Twilight Is Upon Me was errata'ed to make it clear that it pulls only the DSII interrupt Anakin Skywalker, and not any card that happens to have "Anakin Skywalker" in its title. Twilight Is Upon Me Deploy on table. Once per turn, may take one The Force Is ...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Malekith was one of the worst villains in any of the Marvel movies - just no explanation or motivation of any kind for why he wants to wipe out the universe other than "he's the bad guy". Fwiw, this is true of most Marvel movies, even Guardians. And that was something that I thought was sorta lacki...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

The Dark World was one of those movies that seems good the first time you see it, but if you watch it again or take a deeper look at it, it's actually full of awful tropes and stupid plot holes, and I can't believe people think Thor 2 was a better film that the first Thor. I've never seen so many de...

Re: Hearthstone

It looks pretty disappointing. I haven't played it, but I was watching a couple streamers playing the single player, and the AI seems just as dumb as (or dumber than) it was in vanilla practice mode. The only reason the heroic challenges are hard at all is because the AI gets absurdly overpowered ab...

This is an update to note that we have tweaked the wording on the Echo Med Lab to make its function more clear. Nothing has changed from the ruling that Aglets posted earlier in the thread.

Re: Geonosis: Separatist Council Room

The text on the Council Room has been tweaked so that this issue has (hopefully) been dealt with. Now the text isn't optional so even the senators with continuous effects should function properly.

Re: Missing when captured

This loophole has been closed. When an escort and a captive are made missing by an all cards or all characters action, they will both go missing as they should.

Re: Rogue Squadron X-wing (V)

Epic bump. This card has been updated to make the text more clear that it only works during battle. The change wasn't strictly necessary for the card to function properly, hence the long gap between this question and the text change. There's no gameplay change here, just a clarification, but we thou...

Re: Major League Baseball in 2014

I will say that I find it curious that throwing 90+ MPH fastballs at hitters intentionally is deemed more acceptable by MLB than throwing a bat at someone. Seems like in both cases there is intent to harm. It's not really that surprising - the former is entrenched as an acceptable part of the "unwr...

Re: failing actions?

Sorry for the delay on this one. Gergall's previous post is how it was decided to work. If for any reason a player cannot draw the 2 cards necessary after Sabacc has already been initiated, the entire game of Sabacc fails, and any already drawn sabacc cards are placed in their owner's used pile.

Correct, unless they happen to also be the chosen character type in addition to New Republic, but to my knowledge none are.
