    I am skeptical that core, 3-4 cycles, one clan pack, and some indeterminate number of premium expansions is enough to give each clan more than one viable deck.

    While racing light mechs, your Urbanmech comes in second place, but only because it ran out of ammo.

    The alternative is that the game dies because the buy in is too expensive for new players (since ffg don't do anything to resolve this) .
    Also, there is always a best deck in all competitive scenes, so I don't think it matters too much even if you are correct (which I'm unsure on).

    I stopped into the store and talked about rotation a bit, and the local Thrones player brought up that current full buy-in to Thrones is $750. I was kind of blown away by that... then remembered that 2nd edition came out in 2015.

    Nuking cycle 1 will probably be a good thing in the long run, since it's kinda wack in regards to power levels.

    I definitely wouldn't mind it if we got a Revised of the core set that evened up the power levels a bit. And maybe fixed the multicore problem?

    So I assume when you win Worlds, we're going to be getting Yasuki Leela punching some courtier in half?

    Sadly you aren't getting the recognition of the Seattle, but still. :)

    Haha, nice.

    Borderlands Defender is my L5R sweet.


    My greatest victory was convincing the crowd to not listen to the Crane player during the cosplay competition.

    Glad Crab didn't get Seattle, don't want us getting nerfed ;)
    MD wins enough.

    Still famous for NR, one of the L5R judges even mentioned my game vs Timmy Wong this weekend which is crazy, was like 4 years ago.

    Hrm.

    Our store's running the Mantis kit this weekend... and now I need to decide what I want to play.

    Could always look for a tryhard HMT deck... but I've actually put together a version of the Unicorn honor bomb deck with the Crane splash, and I kind of want to go for style points?

    Have you seen the Phoenix mill deck? If you want another crazy deck?

  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    Phoenix? Nah, I have *some* standards.

    Also Pack 5 of the upcoming cycle was announced. Has a new Dragon stronghold.

    I want the first pack to come out already so I can play the Crab infinite combo deck.

    So I actually ended up playing the Crane splash honor deck that I threw together.

    And while it didn't actually win... it was actually threatening the honor win. Like, in one game I was sitting at like 20 honor with 7 honored personalities on the board ready to push me over if I survived the turn. Just had some really bad luck with personality flops or card draws.

    Also I probably need to look at other decks so I have a good idea what to Gossip, and when to. I really should have thrown one at Let Go for those turns when I really needed to keep a SPIRITHORSE spell in play long enough to cast. Did some good work against Lion to shut down Charges.

    Gossip is one of those cards where, if you know the decks and the match really well, will serve you amazingly, while a lot of people are going to struggle to use it. The new Dragon stronghold is going to be a bit like that too.
