Re: FFG buying L5R

Yeah..I don't get it. It is in all of our interests to be optimistic and supportive if we want L5R to continue as a great product. I don't get why people are willing for FFG to fail just so they can turn around in 2017 and say "Told you so". FFG really do know what they are doing. This outcome was a...

Re: FFG buying L5R

Possibly the most unreasonable post I've read in a long time. You know, just because something has "law" written at the end of it, does not give it any factual or logical authority, especially when it is a "law" invented by a science fiction writer. You're just full of red herrings and scarecrows. F...

Re: FFG buying L5R

My original statement, when I posted the above, is that the L5R LCG may be an L5R-licensed game, but it's not going to BE L5R. People hoping that they're going to receive the old game with a new distribution model are living in a fantasy land. I agree with your assessment of how it's likely to shak...

Re: FFG buying L5R

Only bad for people like me who bought 12 Booster Displays (TCS/TNO/20F/THA) and a booster Display 20F after our local Kotei in Erlangen at the end of June to get a competitive card base and support our five new players. I feel r***d. I have no problem with FFG or the LCG. But this change is pretty...

Re: [EP] Evil Portents Unicorn Previews

I'm getting really tired of 3f guys for 8, and annoyed at 3f guys for 7. This. Death priest is good. Battle maiden is over box honor and completely inefficient, but can kill some naked things and the lower end followers. Chinua is another not dash honor requirement force inefficient guy with a batt...

Re: [EP] Min-Hee Sensei

I'm neutral about this card. Losing early unopposed is bad against certain builds (e.g. Honour running, attrition military). Fair to say an entire redesign of philosophy is needed to optimise this sensei. I picture a mix of the most efficient infantry/cav guys with range attacks and movement as the...

Re: [EP] Evil Portents Unicorn Previews

I think in the right deck Yabusame will be a house. Think it would be hard to run her in a normal commander deck due to the HR, but in the battle maiden deck she is gaining you two honor and making 2 ranged 3 attacks in the same battle. And yeah, Dai-ketsu is a monster. Edit: I feel stupid, what is ...

To make this L5R related. Do you guys (you specifically Yosama seeing as you started the thread!) have l5r events over the weekends? Or when do you usually play.

Re: Khol Regulars - Unicorn Followers 20F Arc

I like the idea of switching Shinjo Archers out for The Thundering Death. The Archers require a bit of set-up to achieve their RA without bowing while TTD is that lovely 4F. Have you had any issue with the 8HR on Naleesh and Kamoko while running five 1PH guys? Something like that would hit me once ...

Re: Honour rockets (Crane and Phoenix)

Thanks guys, will give them a try. What really also kills is Alliance Threatened. That usually stops my first attack unless I have a Courage Beyond Question (which thankfully serves a dual purpose in the military matchup) in hand. Yeah, I think CBQ is an auto include in decks these days, so versati...

Re: Honour rockets (Crane and Phoenix)

I find accessible terrain to be pretty key to winning the matchup. thrill of daring is a decent card too. Just need to make sure that you make them burn as many sendhome as possible. The box gives us a bit of an advantage in that regard. If they get a god draw though, sometimes you just can't win it...

Re: Unicorn Reserve

I'd been toying with something like this in my head but wrote it off for being really expensive on the Dynasty side. It is quite expensive alright, and it was what came through, especially trying to pay for mirumoto jaikei. Have you ever had trouble buying people fast enough to threaten provinces? ...

Unicorn Reserve

Have been tinkering around with reserve for a while, and have had a few iterations of it, usually with lots of harpoon. Have decided to have a try off building one without harpoon and just aim to have as many reserve personalities as possible. Added some out of clan ones to round off the personality...

Re: 2nd place, L5R monthly tournament, Auckland

No problem :) ! It's hard to know what to suggest as you are building for your local meta which I haven't a notion about. Now I see what you are using hidden machinations for it is as decent shout. Still not sold on the bounty hunter's and Tae-Hyun but I guess it is a personal preference/meta thing....

Re: 2nd place, L5R monthly tournament, Auckland

I am not really familiar with the other cards, but i will say Hidden Machinations is stronger than people give it credit, i often add it to my deck as a 41st card, it's pseudo card cycle, high focus AND you can have the last say in open action. E.g. you can Kozan after both party passes, so open un...

Re: 2nd place, L5R monthly tournament, Auckland

What are the honor decks running that you can't deal with? Your deck seems to have a lot of meta for it. 3 Oriole, 3 way of unicorn,3 sudden movement, 1 earth,1 armor, TNO. The only cards I don't like in your fate side are hidden machinations, bounty hunter and valiant defense. I understand why you ...

Re: So... The Colonies?

Agreed Tobikawa, there are two major events, Gen-Con and European, but it is a small percentage that usually attends those events. I have played on and off again since 1995, my time commited to L5R as a player is probably only a total of five of the twenty years. I have only attended seven kotei in...

I was on the stream in Saturday's round one. Poor Jordan. Haha! There are definitely games where I don't get a brute or I don't get Magistrates or I don't get a Follower but I can usually stall long enough to make up for that against a military deck.
