Yep, they'll be there! Those aren't usually added until later, and Scott needs to weigh in on the finances.

Those are 2 different cube styles- which it is depends on whose cube we can get there at that time.

The power cube is very popular. It has objectives and when you draft an objective, you automatically receive the other necessary starting cards. For example Hunt Down would automatically come with Holotheatre and Visage, but I don't know if you would also receive Med Chamber or Epic Duel.

There might also be some other important features I'm forgetting. Maybe everyone gets a starting effect with some important shields?

I have no idea what a Flex Cube is.

:noshake:

You get effect versions of some important shields, and the ds2 starting interrupts, if you care to start them.

Yes, because the current AR will be applied. And AR Page D-2 spells out in no uncertain terms, "R2-D2 is heroic."

Maybe the official schedule should state that current rules will be used for this event.

I have no idea what a Flex Cube is.
This is what the Flex Cube is (linky). It is a core/base set of 600 cards designed to be built for under $100. In addition to that, a Theme Block has been released (60 cards) that does the same as what the Power Cube has concerning drafting sets of cards. The Flex Cube offers more synergy, however, due to drafting objectives and such from your first draft-able pack (so drafting can actually take place around a theme). Just because it is built on cheaper cards does not mean that it is weak in terms of playing with strong cards. The synergy offered from 2 card combos and early drafting of themes greatly improves deckbuilding and gameplay compared to cubes of yesteryear. The link to the Google Docs version is more up-to-date (and I will update the list posted soon) and integrates some cards from the newer sets.

I do not know for sure how this compares to the Power Cube in terms of which is more enjoyable to draft and play. I have never played with the power cube and most people (if any) who have played with the power cube have never played with my cube. I've only heard good things about both, so whatever is played with at Worlds should be fun.

that is terrible. r2-d2 should not be heroic he never would have been in 96-97. other changes, like limited resources being unique, ok fine. but heroic r2?

While i'm pretty sure there's a *-ton of other rules that weren't out yet either, and don't think it's realistic to try to replicate the exact environment...I agree with Tom that heroic really doesn't have a place in that format and should be made an exception

By all means, the person running the event can make whatever exceptions are deemed necessary. I was just letting you know what the status quo is if you go with the current AR as written (which is currently the plan as best I can tell).

I haven't seen any update on this. It would be good for an official decision to be posted.

it actually might be relevant, as r2d2 is likely to be the most played light character at the event

And if some returning player shows up just for this legacy event and gets blown out by heroic rules they have never heard of that's probably not going to make a good impression :lol:
