Re: Potential Carambor Fix

When you are wrong, you are not teaching anyone anything. You are only muddying the waters, which is very bad because the rules indeed are difficult. And I do fault you for doing so. Your argumentative fallacies combined with a zealot-like overestimation of your understanding of the rules / card te...

Re: Simplified Timing Rules (Active & Passive Conditions)

Sure, but to my knowledge METW (or MELE) Companion is not readily available for people to read. Would be nice to have at least the relevant quotes from them IMO. It sure is readily available. Just send a friendly email and €11.95 to Wim Heemskerk 👍 Otherwise, much of the discussion of passive condi...

Re: CoE Erratum Proposal 1

If that what Minions Stir does not count as directly affecting an attack then directly the card may not be revealed as on-guard when Orc AA is faced. The on-guard rules do require the revealed card to " directly affect " the Automatic-attack, only to "modify the automatic-attack." Perhaps you are c...

Re: When a Company is at a Site

In my opinion (and, as far as I'm aware, CoE's opinion), even officially published rules summaries do not have authority to overrule rule books for competitive play (unless explicitly mentioning they are overruling a specific rule). They can be a nice simplification, though. ICE has stated that the...

Re: Non-ratified CoE rulings that contradict the existing ICE rulings

1) Although it may seem otherwise according to a literal-minded reading of the MELE rules ("An attack by a hazard creature is defeated if it is not a detainment attack and all of its strikes directed against (i.e., assigned to) a company are defeated."), you cannot defeat an attack by making all of...

Re: CoE Erratum Proposal 1

This Erratum overruled probably the 2nd most hated ICE ruling (after the disappearing Dragon Hoard, which eventually received errata). Well done. Probably the best thing done in 21 years. However, there is one issue. The Proposal mentions the CRF on Automatic Attacks but it fails to mention the CRF ...

Re: Agent questions

When exactly is a site considered a Wizardhaven. For a DIY Wizardhaven with Hidden Haven I would assume only while that card is on the table. But for Isengard, The White Towers and Rhosgobel: Are they always Wizardhavens? Are they only considered Wizardhavens if your opponent is declared as a Falle...

Re: Average Game time

A player not on here has been working on a deck validation checklist. He'll be sharing his work soon. But here are some quick notes: 30/30 card resource/hazard minimum, 30 card sideboard. 10 vs-FW sideboard. 10 characters preselected for the deck. 10 characters in the draft pool (for starting compan...

Re: When a Company is at a Site

I don't get why it's so confusing. The mechanics happen in the phase named after those mechanics. "Movement" game mechanics happen during the Movement Phase. "Site" game mechanics happen during the Site phase. Companies join after all M/H phases. This company is not separated when it becomes "at the...

Re: Average Game time

Do most people play 2-deck games? 3? Or does it really just depends on how long you want to play? Most people play 30/30 minimum 2-deck games because this is the tournament standard. Back in the day 25/25 1-deck games were the tournament standard and that is what people played. Some cards and strat...

Re: Potential Carambor Fix

The Standard Rules consist of additions and extensions to the Starter Rules That is, rules that aren't changed by the Standard Rules carry over. Or do you, e.g., have no decks other than a location deck of METW region cards when you aren't playing the Starter Rules? The Starter Rules don't "carry o...

Is that an errata? That it doesn't?

Re: Potential Carambor Fix

At the beginning of its movement/hazard phase, a moving company’s new site card is revealed and its current site card becomes its site of origin. A new site card "is revealed" regardless of whether it is already revealed. The earlier quoted player turn summary only says when to "turn it over". This...

Re: Potential Carambor Fix

Gee Miguel, I'm just teaching you the rules of this game. No need to get upset. Everyone knows the rules are difficult. No one would fault you for having played them wrong. Since you completely missed my point, I'll say it again. To me ICE clearly used revealing of the new site to mean declaration a...
