Honestly, I think that after this cycle the game has run it's course. What else is there left that hasn't been introduced? I don't want any Prequeal cards. I maybe, could see something around new movie but that doesn't come out until December so what's really left? There's already 3x Lukes, 3x Yoda, 2x Leia, 2x Vader. You get to the point where you're just reprinting old cards with new abilities.

I mean, what, where going to have 5 different Lukes or Yodas or Vaders 2x years from now? There are only so many ships and characters that you can make cards out of before the pool runs dry.

Maybe a Han Solo with the "broken ankle" trait?

Run its course??...... Come on man. If you literally can't think of anything new mechanic wise they can do, you must not be very imaginative. Just... Wow.

But what's really left?

 

There's:  Luke, Leia, Yoda, Han, Lando, Chewie, Vader, Palply, Ackbar, Bobba Fett, Piett, C-3PO, R2D2, Reiken, Home One, Tie Fighters, Tie Advanced, Tie Bombers, A-wings, B-wings, Y-wings, X-wings, AT-ATs, AT-STs, Star Destroyers, Victory Class, Tantive 5, The Falcon, IG 88, Bosch, Jabba, The Sarlach Pit, Jabba's pleasure barge, Mara Jade, etc...

You need only think of magic and all of its keywords, like first strike, double strike, etc and how many of those types of interactions could be adapted and evolved for this game.

How about alternate win conditions such as they added into the CCG.

There is literally dozens upon dozens of things they can do with this game.....

A whole Endor cycle?  Really?  There's Endor splashed around all over the place.  How could you possibly design a 6 pack Endor cycle that doesn't have much that isn't already represented?  There's the new C-3PO, plenty of Ewoks, AT-STs, log traps, all the ships from the battle of Endor, Speeder Bikes.

What the hell are you talking about? Those are units not mechanics....

Sometimes I wish instead of spell checkers, we had think checkers.....

Well than it would be MTG and not SWLCG.

 

You're missing my point Bobba, the game's appeal is that it takes place in the SW universe so it revolves around SW characters and ships.  Everything has pretty much come out so there's not much left in term of new character or ships after this cycle.

 

I don't want to see a Count Duku card or a Mace Windu card.  Do you?

I would love to have those guys. I imagine at some point ep. 7 will be used, or maybe they can do something with affiliation cards. Thankfully, FFG employs people with more imagination than I have.

I'm sorry that I crushed you delicate little SWLCG heart Bobba.  Here's a tissue for you to dry your tears with.

You just sound so ignorant and idiotic it's hard to justify any realistic responses to you or take you seriously, which is why you have been laughed off of many of the threads you've posted in. However, rather than continue this exercise in futility, I'll just put you on ignore so I won't be subject to your idiocy any longer.

Take care Yankee doodle.

I feel they have yet to scratch the surface of what the original trilogy has to offer. I under stand LS has had extra love with duplicates but the DS could also go down that road and possibly be more diverse with it.

They have also been clever with there use of the EU, while using EU characters they have set them within this time period.

While many including myself would not like to see prequel stuff, I feel Star Wars Rebels could have its place in the game and I'd love to see the current FFG used artists interpretations of characters from the show.

What I'm really hoping for is more indepth sets based upon the big battles, there's still a lot that can be covered.

I agree. I do think there are a few too many repeated LS characters/units, but DS hasn't done a lot of that, except for Vader and a little Mara Jade. I think a new Emperor (not multiplayer exclusive) would be really fun to see.

 

I'm also with you on the prequel stuff. While it wouldn't thrill me to see them, I do trust FFG's abilities with flavor and theme, for the most part, enough to believe in them if they do put prequel stuff in.

 

Also...Fingrin Dan and the Modal Nodes need a set, as do the band from Jabba's Palace (without the cabaret girls from the SE). I'd love a Lak Sivrak and Dice Ibegeon set because I thought their story in the Mos Eisely anthology was pretty good in terms of literary quality and I like Shistavanens.

Wow, I love how you express an opinion and people start getting all worked up over it.  It's just a game. 

 

Those who put people on ignore obviously don't or can't come up with any logical argument to counter your point other than "I'm taking my ball and going home!" 

 

I guess someone is in a snitt with their boyfriend and is taking it out on someone else.

 

Sorry about you're luck Bobba Wuss

Yes, and he even planned on transferring himself into the death Star.

Haha, yeah, that does sound crazy, huh?

 

It's weird. The novels from the EU that I read weren't so great, but some of the short stories were really cool. I think it's got a lot to do with the form; you can pull a lot of neat tricks off in short stories that would just be too drawn out if they were made into novels.

It doesn't matter to me what the next deluxe is, if it has a Sucm Y-wing, I'll be forever happy, it could be the worst card ever and it would always be an auto include for me.
