By all accounts, 2019 Worlds for Star Wars Destiny was a big success. As we started to dive into the data from the decks that made the top cut, JediGeekGirl had an idea she asked me to explore and it's led to this brief article.
A recent article from FFG mentions that the October 29th edition of FFG Live will celebrate the "impending release" of Marvel Champions. This certainly makes it sound like the game will come out in the first week of November rather than sometime in October as was originally stated. So, how do we survive at least another 3-4 weeks before the game releases?
The news that Covert Missions will be delayed until sometime in the first quarter of 2020 certainly dampened the spirits of everyone looking forward to shouting “Stand by alert! Death Star approaching!” at our opponents while showing off our new Destroy the Death Star plot. But while we have to wait a little longer than we may have liked before trying out the new win conditions, we can spend this time productively.
Before we ever learn that the Force can be used to stop blaster bolts in mid-air, move a user safely through space, or scramble the brains of droid-seeking stormtroopers, we get our first description of this mystical energy from Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope: “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things, it surrounds us, and penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.”
The biggest thing here is Shadows was the worst-performing house allowing both Logos and Untamed fighting hard to be the only houses with a positive conversion rate to day 2.
When Marvel Champions was first announced at Gen Con 2019, I was a little skeptical. I intended to wait and see and maybe get a core set after trying it out elsewhere. Fast forward a few weeks and I have everything on pre-order. So what changed?
