So, in today's L5R LCG article FFG announced that they have shortened the card cycle rotation. So instead of rotating out older cards when the 8th card cycle is released, it has been shortened to the release of the 5th card cycle.
As many others do, I firmly believe that if they had done this with the Star Wars LCG the game would have lasted much longer, as it would have been easier for new players to buy into the game. Plus, certain broken combos would have cycled out much sooner. But instead, the SWLCG got canceled before we got even one rotation.
One can only hope that in the future, we'll see a second edition of this awesome game. I miss playing it. I still have the whole collection, but now my binders just collect dust. 😞
