TaKtiX: Laurence J Sinclair

Laurence J Sinclair has been playing the Warlord CCG since the release of the game - mainly thanks to that killer Rathe art. He even stuck with it through that dark time involving Campaign Rathe art. Now he is a playtester and a member of the Warlord Story Team - guiding the armies of the Accordlands into an uncertain future.

Everyone Remain Calm...

So, with Epic approaching, people on the Temple of Lore are getting all heated about whether or not it will be a good format, worrying over cards that were/weren't included, the merits of battlepacks vs. starter decks, and everything else under Bascaron.

There are small pockets of calm, citing that it's just the same climate as when Campaign edition rolled around over two years ago. But it's not. It is completely different, something new and exciting, and getting a healthy amount of panic up in the system is a good thing.

No one likes anything static, that never changes and keeps supplying the same old, same old day in and day out. What leaves people content over a long period of time cannot compare to the excitement over something risky and daring, with big payoffs. Epic may have upset some people, but that's just the edition showing how cool it will turn out to be - everyone has a favourite card or two that didn't make it through. Epic isn't afraid to stomp on people's toes with dirty great hobnail'd boots. A people-pleasing format that just delivered what the popular masses thought that they wanted would have seemed good at first, but would have left a bad aftertaste. Much better to take the Epic approach, which may hurt at first but will be much more worthwhile in the end.
