In some cases, you got "waste cards" not only from the Core Set, but also from the early Battle/Chapter Packs as well as the first Deluxe Expansions. That being said, this is still 100 times better than the blind booster purchasing and singles chasing that used to plague CCGs/TCGs.
Yep the LCG concept is loads better, agreed.
It seems though that there would be significant take up of a "core expansion" card set, and as these are cards FFG already has the images etc for, doesn't seem like there would be much overhead on their part to produce one.
I've assumed, not knowing a great deal about the other LCGs, that the LoTR core set, with its very specific encounter and quest cards has a higher pecentage of "waste" cards than other LCG core sets, which in turn may put the buyer off from purchasing multiple core sets (which seems normal practice for other LCGs), which in turn might make FFG consider producing a "core expansion" set.
I guess though while people are prepared to buy multiple core sets, FFG has no reason to think about producing a "core expansion" set?
Thanks to Bonzo on the April 18th thread we now have math confirmation of one of the spheres.
Tactics will have 4 single cards, 8 double cards, and 3 triple cards. That means a second core set wil provide 12 extra tactics cards, bringing your collection to 11 cards that have a full three copies, and 4 cards that are still short a copy. Also, you will have 17 extra tactics cards to give away to help hook your friends on the game!
I hope we get more math soon! I can't wait to play the game myself!
