I'm definitely no-where near notable enough to be on the player's committee, but I'm more than happy to help with ideas/suggestions for some of the new cards (or if some of my ideas are used, that's also totally cool). There's also my SWTOR cycle, which I'm sure won't be used in an official/unofficial manner, but hopefully will inspire some of the new stuff that gets created.

(Those who know me from the EU/Canon debate will also know I'll be pushing for Legends representation in the new stuff  :) )

 

I'll still be designing away at SWTOR-era stuff, doing the same thing I've always been doing  :)

While my knowledge of the game is fundamental at best, I am an intellectual property attorney based in Chicago for my day job.

 

Would be happy to provide some light legal consulting (not legal advice, mind you) on questions should anyone require it.

Of course the person who's studied law is going to remember/put in the disclaimer  :)

Again, someone so small in this large large pond...but I will vote for "advocates".

 

Letux

Kiramode

DBmeboy

Yodaman

ColDameron

JackofHearts

Rio

RoyalAgeis

Jarratt

 

Also, I am working to "band together" our small bunch in southern NJ and southeastern PA. We already have events scheduled for February and March. I will work to get things posted on the forums.

 

Keep hope alive! Keep the game alive!

We'll need lots of people like you willing to run events on a local level!  One thing we'll definitely lose is the ability to sell tournament kits directly to stores.  We'll rely on players at the local level being willing to work with their local stores to keep events being run.

Thanks dbmeboy! We even set up a discord channel and have a name for ourselves - "Coruscant Strike Force". I already bought one kit myself because the guys are newer players so there will a Mara mat up for grabs. i am also hoping jackofhearts and the NYC guys have some extra alt-arts to spare. My LGS owner also has some kits "hidden away" he said so, I am hopeful that we can get some players.

 

If anyone in a different region has some extra alt-arts they could spare for our southern NJ/PA group, we would really love it!

 

Thanks!

 

Keep hope alive! Keep the game alive!

I'll run events in my area if we get stuff set up.

Not "if," when.  I can't speak for anyone else, but keeping some form of organized play going is a top priority for me.

I was one of two people to reboot our local community. I have bought and gathered promo kits from eBay and our FLGS has been great at ordering the kits for us and he just has me run the tournaments. I will continue to help our community.

I also would love to get a shot at any extra alt art the community has made and I would order/pay for new sets for the community.

It's really hard to pick from all the people who continue to contribute so much to this community, and have a lot of passion for it.

 

I also think it's easy on this forum to overlook groups from non-English speaking countries. There are clearly strong and relatively large metas in France, Spain and Poland, for example, that ought to be represented even though they may not have as large a presence on this site. I know there are people from those places on this forum, and they will have a better idea than I do who specifically would be best suited for this.

 

Apart from that, I can't find anything to disagree with in the original list that Greedoshotfirst came up with. Any or all of them would be more than worthy custodians for this game going forward.

After a lot of thought, I'd like to modify my original list:

 

Jarratt

Kiramode

dbmeboy

Yodaman

Jackofhearts

medfreeman

Fullyops

MasterJediAdam

Majestaat

 

This was very difficult to do, and I know that 'it's nothing personal' is in fact one of the cruelest cliches out there, but I really respect all of the candidates from among whom I am struggling to decide, and I wish everyone the best of luck.

Before casting a vote, I'd like to suggest increasing the number of members to 13 with a dedicated spot for each country with a large enough playgroup to host a national tournament (official or unofficial). I think that includes Austrailia/NZ, Canada, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, USA, and the UK.

I also think the process would go smoother, if it went as follows: nominate someone, have the nomination seconded, have the person accept the nomination, create a poll with all accepted nominations to let forum/FB members select their top X candidates.

I am OK with expansion if the rest of the community would like it. I just picked 7 to be large enough with a tie breaker. The other option is to put in order who you would like on the committee. That way once we decide the number of members, the leading vote getters would be in.

 

I was just planning on tallying the votes then speaking to the members individually to see if they accepted the commission. If not, it would drop to the next person on the list.

 

In regards to regional leaders, I think it is important for organization and tournament play, but these can likely just be appointed. I think it may work against the game to have too many members inserting too many opinions and not actually progressing the game any further.

Regardless of the size of the council/committee/whatever the name ends up being, we'll definitely need more people involved. For example, someone on the council may be head of organized play, but they'll need a team to help them including representatives from all regions. Design similarly. There may be a council member or 2 heading it up, but they won't be the entire team presumably. We're not looking for a group to do everything, but a group to direct so the community can remain unified.

I'm not disagreeing that we should try to include diverse representation. But I do think the group should remain somewhat small. Too many people makes it much harder to find a unified vision.

I believe the intent is to identify leads for various "lanes of effort" who would be responsible to the community to focus the efforts of the volunteers in that lane. This means that the overall number of volunteers that are contributing to keeping the community alive will need to be much larger - including participants in events and feedback on how the community is managing/developing the game.

I completely agree. I may have a great idea, or think I do and I could send it to a regional Viceroy, for me in OK perhaps GSF is a our point of contact and he can enlighten me to the fallacy of my idea or recommend it in to the board. One thing I have found in gaming community is that we all think we are Gygax; when in reality we are more like Joey /Chandler with "Fireball", and most of our ideas need to be tweaked, tested and in most cases chunked away. I would think it would be a good idea to list these publicly, just so we are not regurgitating the same idea over and over and to show any faults in the idea and so people can see that their idea is not just being blindly shot down.

If and how new card designs are developed is a discussion that will definitely happen. But more important is establishing a central source for op and new content. That's how you avoid fracturing the player base and that, I think, is the main goal of this thread. If the council members know what they're doing, they will solicit and listen to ideas from multiple sources. But either way, it's good for the health of the game to have unity instead of a bunch of local metas all doing their own thing and ignoring everyone else.

I would also like to point out that the opinions and experiences of those like you who have developed a play community are invaluable to our community, both now and in the future. I am certain that any future community led play-base will welcome your ideas.

I know using new cards in the future could be seen as "player content" but what happens if a new pod includes "Twist if Fate" or any other FFG created card. Could that be an issue going forward in creating new content?
