    Zipp unbury without a bayou?

    This is the inferring, because the rules doesn't say 'can't physically put', they say "do not physically fit in the specified location". The problem is not that Zipp can't fit in the specified location, the problem is that there is no specified location on the board. "When unburying models, if the models do not physically fit in the specified location, they are placed in their controller’s Deployment Zone by the player who controls them." This quote is literally a cut and paste from the pdf version of the rules manual. I've double checked it with the physical rules manual and physical big rule book. I agree with you here, the rule doesn't strictly say that the Bayou Gremlin is required and that Zipp can't unbury if there's not. That does however not change the fact that the quoted part of the (un)bury rule doesn't apply to this situation. The two rules are separate and as written (read to the best of my ability) none of them specifically say how to resolve the situation.

    Who is the tankiest master now?

    Titania has 12 wounds and impossible to wound. She heals when scheme markers are placed within 6 inches. She has upgrades that lets her straight up ignore 1-2 damage on attacks from non-masters and another one that lets her force opponents to attack her rather than other models.

    Zipp unbury without a bayou?

    It can't be wrong to infer something that's not written on the upgrade card but right to infer something that's not written in the unbury rules. It's either right or wrong to infer information. It is, it just doesn't say anything about unburying next to something that doesn't exist. Exactly this. It's perfectly possible that the intention is that Zipp should always come back but currently I can't find a way to support this in the rules as written. My dog takes objection to this comment... 😝

    Zipp unbury without a bayou?

    I still don't think that the unbury in the deployment zone has support in the rules as they are written, the situation does not match the one in the rules text. "When unburying models, if the models do not physically fit in the specified location, they are placed in their controller’s Deployment Zone by the player who controls them." It's not a question about it not physically fitting in a specified location. There is no specified location. It's perfectly fine to argue that there's nothing in the rules that prevent him from unburying because there are no bayou gremlins, but to me it's an awfully long stretch to interpret "there's no target location on the table" as "doesn't physically fit".

    Zipp unbury without a bayou?

    I know it seems like public opinion that he'd unbury in the deployment zone but I think it's far fetched. It's not a lack of space that's the issue. So neither ruling has watertight support in the rules as I see it. I'd be tempted to side with @Ludvig though. If for no other reason than you place another bayou gremlin on the board. Clearly Zipp blends in and you don't know which is which. But if you've killed all the bayou gremlins, clearly you've killed Zipp. I realize there's zero support for this interpretation in the rules but it'd make sense to me. ☺️

    While I don't share all of @edopersichetti's worries, he didn't "decide it's a major overhaul", he said that [to him] "this looks more and more like a major overhaul". Before we actually get to try the changes out on the table, none of us know if it will feel like a fine tuning or major overhaul. In fact, even when when we do get to try it out on the table I am willing to bet that some of us will see it as a fine tuning and some of us will see it as a major overhaul. Regarding the new scoring model I can't decide if I'm a bit apprehensive or cautiously optimistic. I mean, I've heard more than once on podcasts people saying things similar to; all you need to do is get your 6 points and prevent your opponent from getting their 6 points. So in that sense I think it makes sense to make strategy and scheme equal scoring. The way I see it (from a story perspective) the strategy is what the conflict is all about, the schemes are more like targets of opportunity, things your crew does to get one up on the opposition. So for me it makes sense that they are equal in importance.

    It's also worth noting that if you're outactivated, you're still allowing your opponent multiple consecutive activations at some point during the turn, you just have a bit of control over when that happens.
  8. Wild prediction time... While I think this is the idea, I don't think that's actually how it's going to play out. Upgrades either have to deliver some form of value for their cost or people won't use them. If they do, people will continue to use them. As with upgrades in M2E there's likely going to be masters that will have enough worthwhile ones that they'll fill their slots and masters where people will look at the upgrades and then stick them back in the box/cupboard. I just believe that upgrades are super hard to get exactly right strength/cost wise. As indicated by the number of used/available upgrades.

    Does anyone have definite dimensions for the cards? I'm about to build a gaming table and knowing how much space to reserve for cards would be nice...

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Having slept on it, I actually think that a straight +2 would be good. It makes it so min damage 1 get a slight boost, min damage 2 is unchanged and min damage 3+ (mainly beaters) gets tones down a little. In current edition it means RJ is 10 instead of 12 for Seamus and 8 instead of 10 for Nekima. Still really hard hit but a little less devastating. I think the problem is that models that are beaters benefit more from the RJ than others.

    Is it just me or does it look like suits included in the stat and double suit triggers (apart from Rasputina's extra ice pillar trigger) is missing/very rare?
