12:46:42@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Yea, I like that one better.

13:55:39@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Ok, that just escalated quickly.
13:57:04@aaron:matrix.orgaaronBeyond the fleeting satisfaction of crushing you, those games aren’t even fun. :P

16:40:53@kon:matrix.orgkon I hate starting 3/3/3 with a trade row full of 4's and 5's. That might be the start that balances the first player advantage of the game.
16:47:48@kon:matrix.orgkon2 Patrol Mechs (3 Trade/5 Attack ship from the base set), Bioformer (3 Attack base that scraps for 3 trade), Parasite (6 attack or free 6 cost), and Space Station (2 damage outpost that scraps for 4 trade) in the first 8 cards.

02:58:32@kon:matrix.orgkonRob did an interview for Twist Gaming: https://m.twitch.tv/videos/238433670
02:58:41@kon:matrix.orgkonStarts around 4:31:00

For people too lazy to watch the video:

  • Footage of the big box and dividers.
  • Frontiers will include some new solo/co-op challenges
  • Commanders are balanced against each other or against 2 cooperating regular players
  • All Commander decks will start with 12 cards including 4 Scouts and 1 Viper
  • Biolord Walsh Machine Cult/Blob
  • 6 card starting hand
  • 70 starting authority
  • Unity Warcraft (Gambit): Your bases get +1 defense. Your opponent's bases get -1 defense.
  • Walsh's Stratagem (Gambit): Scrap: 2 trade. Machine Cult ally. Blob ally. Put the next base you acquire this turn directly into play.
  • Welder Drone (Machine Cult Ship): 2 trade or 2 combat
  • Laser Drone (Machine Cult Ship): 2 combat. Ally Machine Cult: 1 combat. Ally double Machine Cult: 2 combat.
  • Scout Bot (Unaligned Ship): 1 trade. Ally Machine Cult: Choose a card of cost 2 or less in your discard pile. Put it on top of your deck.
  • Swarmling (Blob Ship): 2 combat. Ally Blob: 1 Combat. You may scrap a card in the trade row.
  • Protopod (Blob Ship): 2 trade. Ally Blob: 1 combat.
  • Cluster Viper (Unaligned Ship): 2 combat. Ally Blob: 1 combat.
03:08:41@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Those gambits feel like power creep, but they’re very interesting.
03:35:33@kon:matrix.orgkonThe decks are supposed to be super OP, but all equally OP. Remember, those are supposed to be about twice the power level of a normal Gambit.
11:54:37@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Ahh, makes sense.

16:01:02@aaron:matrix.orgaaron I’m pretty sure I threw the game. I gambled on that early 8, didn’t draw it, and killed all my buy.
16:31:03@kon:matrix.orgkonI am surprised you went for the Fleet HQ. It is, by far, the weakest 8-cost.
17:03:51@aaron:matrix.orgaaron It was the HQ, the brain world, or the 7 scrap base.
17:04:13@aaron:matrix.orgaaron They’re both worth five damage unless you get faction.
17:06:53@kon:matrix.orgkonBlob World, you mean? Brain World would be the obvious right answer.
17:17:31@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Yea, sorry, blob world.
17:17:52@aaron:matrix.orgaaron 8-yellow, 8-green, 7-red.

18:07:46@aaron:matrix.orgaaron kon: can you only complete one mission per turn?
18:37:29@kon:matrix.orgkonYep, did the app forget to say that?
18:40:22@aaron:matrix.orgaaron Probably.
