|Introducing a New FAQ for Warhammer: Invasion
Find the new FAQ and designer insights into the new changes
|Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game | Published 05 December 2011|
With the release of the new FAQ for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game, the lead developer shares the design team’s insights and rationale behind the need for new restrictions, clarifications, and errata.
What you’ll find in the new FAQ
Greetings Warhammer: Invasion players,
In this updated FAQ, you will find new clarifications, errata, and frequently answered questions. You will also discover two new additions to the restricted list.
Let’s start with the restricted list. Both Rodrik’s Raiders (March of the Damned, 7) and Derricksburg Forge (The Burning of Derricksburg, 5) have been added to the list. The Empire has been well-represented in tournaments over the last season, and they currently have too much speed and consistency. Derricksburg Forge is an automatic inclusion in any Empire deck and provides the race with cheap, efficient power and loyalty. Restricting it slows down the resource acceleration of Empire decks, as it now must be chosen over Warpstone Expedition, Wilhelm of the Osterknacht, and Rodrik’s Raiders. The restriction of Rodrik’s Raiders lowers the consistency of the Empire’s control. With it, the Empire has cheap support control that is easily repeatable with cards like Osterknacht Elite and Call the Reserves, and its low loyalty means it can make an impact early in the game. The restriction of Rodrik’s Raiders forces the Empire player to choose something to give up in order to gain this powerful control. These restrictions, taken as a pair, should balance the power level of Empire decks with the other races while still allowing for strong, top-tier builds. We believe that these new restrictions will create an even more compelling and balanced competitive environment.
Other notable items in the FAQ are a clarification of the meaning of “just played,” an update to the Turn Diagram that explains when a zone is considered to be attacked, and an explanation of the difference between cards being played and entering play.
As always, if you have any questions, you can send your inquiries via the “Rules Questions” link at the bottom of the page. We are constantly working to expand and improve this great game, and we want to thank all our players for your continued support.

Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game is a card game by Eric M. Lang in which 2 players develop their kingdoms and lay waste to their foes. Each side is comprised of either the forces of Order or the forces of Destruction as they seek to extend their empire to include the entire Old World. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Battle Pack expansions to the core game.
Thank you FFG! At the very least it listens to players. Keep up the good work!
Now that is some gooooood stuff :D Thanks FFG! :D
I'm okay with the changes and I know Lukas to be both thoughtful and intelligent - if he settled on these choices, then they ARE good ones, imho. Thanks Lukas, keep up the good work man! I hope to game with you again someday.
I still hope we can get some form of Tactic Canceling for Destruction though after this cycle. Please!!! ;)
Ellyrik - yes Empire still can play Verena, Rodrick, Call for Reserve, Osterknacht Elite and Hidden Grove in one deck. Will be just slower without Warpstones and Forges. There is also new Sion of Coin ready to play...
Wrong ennemy. This won't reduce the part of Verena decks
I am surprised that its just these two.
Very good these 2 become restricted!
@majorek: if a deck is good against empire and 60% at Stahleck played a similar empire deck (including myself) it is not strange this deck won. Empire was just so good that many used them, that is why these cards get restricted. The dwarf deck that won the european championship is not unbeatable, but very good in the meta.
Great FAQ !!! many Important updates. Empire still can play Rodriks or Wilhelm and Judgement of Verena in one deck but without superior economy (Forge, Warpstone). That change everything.
Will the Tournament Rules be updated as well?
Haters gonna hate, players gonna play. F*** Yeah!
[ADMIN - Edited for excessive enthusiasm.]
I can see Rodrik, but Derricksburg makes me sad...
THE BEST faq ever, actually. Now we have our game back. THANKS FFG!!! :)
