    I've played this 6 times now. It's a lot of fun! All the fun of a CCG without the countless hours of deckbuilding. Once you know the rules it's nice and fast too. You can easily get through a game in 30 minutes.

    The Kickstarter Group Thread

    I'm not much of a minis boardgamer either, and KS does seem to aim itself more at that end of the market, but the whole KS model does seem to encourage style over substance. Also, if you're getting the money before your design is complete where is the incentive to ensure you've made a good solid game? Not saying that's true of every KS project mind.

    I've preordered the starter box and two extra decks. A couple of friends are buying decks too so looking forward to a few games of this in the next few weeks!

    Great game and the best England have played in a long time.

    I don’t understand the decision to replace Hartley at halftime. Great game but we aren’t going to win when we can’t win any set pieces.

    How the hell are they playing at this pace in these conditions? Cracking game so far.
  8. I think you still get direction guides on your hud but there is no barrel flash or tracer on the shots so it takes longer to pinpoint the persons location. AR with a silencer and a sniper or tactical for longer range is my preferred set up at the moment. Although I’m warming to keeping a shotgun for close range fights.

    What are you playing?

    That does make it very tempting but I’m just not sure how much I would play it! I mostly play euros and war games these days and with the recent crop of Essen games that have just come out I think this would be a hard one to get to the table right now.

    What are you playing?

    How long do the scenario's take? I loved 2nd edition and played it a lot (it was the game that got me back into board gaming) but the play length was just the wrong side of ridiculous.
  11. The lack of matchmaking in multiplayer makes it too frustrating for me to even bother with anymore. After a game or 2 of being spawn camped and/or destroyed by some triple prestige kid I want to throw my controller at something. I’m sure it’s great if your in the 10% of the player base doing the destroying but for the rest of us it sucks monkey balls. Is it really that difficult to group people with it least a vaguely similar win/loss or KD ratio together? On the plus side Blackout is amazing so I’ve been playing that more than is healthy.

    2nd half was good once space opened up. But we very lucky to come away with a win.
  13. You got in the big hall! There's some excellent maps here by the way: https://brettspielbox.de/?p=26254 Someone has gone to the trouble of putting the locations of publishers on to maps of all the halls. Looks even bigger than the last time I went two years ago.
  14. I'll be at Essen on Wednesday! There's 5 of us going together this year and it will be somewhat emotional as a good friend passed away a few weeks ago (Cancer sucks) and he was due to come with us. Anyone else there this year?
  15. 30 kills without dying is nuts. 30 kills with dying sounds almost achievable. I got some medal last night for killing each player on the enemy team without dying. With that and 1 blackout win I think my blops career has peaked and it's all downhill from here.
