    Got the Thursday tournament (ended up at 1509 in line). Super excited for this.

    Wow. And a dude on Facebook just posted that he has 19 extra tickets and will be auctioning them off. Jesus.

    Scalpers are the scum of the Empire.

    They're lower in the Celestial Order than pond scum.

    I would, at least, check the website again in a hour just in case some tickets time out in people's cart.

    At least pond scum serves a purpose.. though you'll never see any in a Crane's gardens.

    Hopefully FFG will reply in some fashion. Obviously a lot of those buying for the Inagural did so to bypass the line at the GenCon store. That's where I would expect the most scalping to be.

    The happiest thing I could think of would be opening another event like that, or letting people who got a core via the line fill in and play in the Thursday event for those who just want the box and dropped. I could see them adding more seats to the Friday event, too.

    I guess the best result would be all that, plus having no one buy the scalper's tickets and watch as they get stuck with hundreds of dollars in GC system credit.

    EDIT: Apparently GenCon's been alerted to it and are looking into it.

    EDIT 2: From what I've heard, it was actually BS and the guy was lying. He got called out on it and confessed.

    Well, it's going to have a FFG Worlds event, so it has to be out before then. I think they said Q4, so maybe October? Although I wonder with how much of a positive response it's been getting if they might try to push it out earlier.

    (Granted, having something early is sometimes a double-edged sword in that technically you won't have anyone to *play* it with until the regular release, unless your group of folks also went.)

    I dunno given how messed up some of FFGs other big box early releases have been its very hard to speculate.

    Sounds like the fiction for this week got pushed back to next week due to the holidays. Probably why we've been seeing all these previews.

    Speaking of which, Deathseeker.

    I don't want to spam the thread, but these are coming in pretty fast and furious. Any suggestions/takers on better ways to handle this? There also doesn't seem to be a ton of discussion..

    Personally I'm waiting for Unicorn, as they are my clan of choice. :)

    I think at the very minimum, we should try to link to the community site that gets a preview.

    Ready for Battle seems handy. I'm trying to remember the classic card that it reminds me of, but having a brain fart this morning. Test of Courage keeps popping up in my brain, but that was anti-moving.

    I'm actually really enjoying the actual cards being posted. I can't see most of the sites that these are revealed on at work, but for some reason the work filter doesn't pick up PA.

    Just a random thought, but I wonder if there's a mechanical reason for honor to be tracked with counters instead of a dial.

    FFG sure loves them some dials.

    Also I'm starting to kick myself that I never got a proper Flying Tricycle faceplate back in the day when they were more plentiful. EDIT: Nevermind, found one!

    FFG tends to prefer tokens for anything that's a currency. Like if you are going to be gaining quite a few, or trading with your opponent. They might also want to leave the design space open to have more than 25, or even negative honor.

    Speaking of which, I may have tracked one down on eBay...

    And may have accidentally ordered the wrong base-plate. Might have not read the description fully and it was the joke Shadowlands one, which has -19 all the way around the dial. Thankfully the seller realized what happened and messaged me at the same time about it and is going to swap it out for the right one.

    I need some Bayushi Shoju up in these stories.
    The old Scorpion novel was my favorite. Such a tragedy.
    Then again, I loved Hantei Naseru, and was pissed when they changed his name, so my tastes are suspect.

  • PMAversPMAvers GomorraRegistered User regular
    In retrospect, this is probably a bad idea to spread...

    But they're putting up more tickets for the GenCon events.

    FFG is adding more seats to both the story tourney and the Friday tourney. They are also clarifying that no matter how many tickets you buy for the story tourney, you are only getting 1 core set, and generics may be available.

    Heh. Great minds..

    Yeah. I'm gonna try my wishlist again, and I'm also going to refresh to see if any of the people who bought in for extra cores drop their extra ticket.

    Earlier they said it would be deckbuilding out of the learn to play book. So I think this is how they are doing it -- LTP is 30 cards, official rules are 40.
