I can quickly grasp assassin creed. But i need to understand all cards n the combos since it is real time kind of play. Maybe because im more used to tcg such as magic n shadow era rather then deck building games. Ascension's mechanic is easier to understand compared to nightfall.
I cant wait to get the new expansion set

OT: AC:R problem is sync only, which I don't have much time digging into. OTOH, the tutorial is so well done that you take time and understand the game. No ties with the "main" game is not a big problem for me.

Back: see no dropout this weekend. BTW, do you see claiming victories a bad thing in this manner?

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

I know it's never been intentional on my part but in some games I've just run out of time.

Just claim the victories - it's not like we'll recover the games. I think it's due to GC going down over the weekend.

This weekend I had several games where people seemed to be forfeited long before they should have. Camzy was forfeited from a 4 player game I am in and I'm positive he hadn't run out of time. So there seems to have been some server issues this weekend.

Yeah I see the same from a bunch of others.

It's okay, it's just one simple forfeit.

When I had my phone out of action for a week, I forfeited something like 15 matches, but it's not a big deal to me.

Happened to my opponents as well. I put 7days games and suddenly some people forfeited which i believe there were still many times left

Hey, like most of the others, not sure what happened there. Don't know if it was a glitch or if I accidentally hit that "Forfeit" button (which unfortunately sits right next to "Game List" in the menu). If I ever forfeit a game accidentally from one of you guys, just send me a new invite. I usually have 8-10 games going at a time and try to check my game statuses a few times a day.

If I don't have any regular games going with anyone here looking for someone to play, feel free to send me an invite.

On another note, really looking forward to Storm of Souls dropping. The wife and I have been playing the physical version since it came out earlier this year. It's got several neat twists to the Ascension formula, so it'll be a great addition.

It's probably just me but the more I play the game, the more it seems like luck can play a huge game-swinging role, which can be hugely off-putting. I guess I'll try and put more time into Nightfall instead.

Luck is a factor for sure, but the better players win more often. I can appreciate not liking that sort of game, though.
