1) We do not have to follow formulas! If we want to do less squads and more heroes I would be very happy. Why not consider two squad packs with one hero each and two strictly hero packs? HS did it with wave 7 I think. By this, I mean let's put together our best efforts and not force more squads/heroes/commons/whatever to make it fit a formula.
I agree on not following the formulas to a tee. We are real close with what has been put out there so far I thought why not follow it here. I could imagine a wave of nothing but heroes down the road, or something of a mixed bag.
2) I am not in favor of including the Dwarf Giant. It was a great design, but it is so similar to Mok that I don't think it would be beneficial for others or for our time to play test him, etc. No slight intended.
No problem here- I was kind of figuring we would have finalized our wording and theory scaped his points to finish him up (with such a disclaimer made publically).
4) I'm going to drag my feet on pushing forward on the Wolfen bunch that have already been targeted for release by C3V. Not because I don't think there is a great potential with Kai's designs, but I think our efforts should focus on different figures. This is just me speaking and I have not ruled it out - I just want to spend time on others first. No slight intended
I kind of agree here, although this is kind of against what we originally decided. I would be happy, Kai, if you wanted to use the design or parts of on a Minotaur hero- I haven't even started there.
5) I would be supremely happy to not have as many figures as lead designer as the two of you. It is not my strong suit. I think I would best serve as a commenter, suggester, play-tester, and card creator. So, have at it boys.
I don't think things could or ever would be even steven. What I was trying to say is that we don't need to rush to fill out the wave. We might have x amount done for the next before we get the right feel for the first (we might even go 3 large characters, 1 hero pack, 2 common packs for the first if it seems more fitting)
I have a TON of ideas, so I'll probably post a lot more than you two (benefit of my being single and no heirs to the Lord Kai throne). But even if I have a lot more submissions, it will just be a matter of which ideas we want to go forward with and/or playtest.
Keep them coming- Loving what you have presented so far. Your last line of "it will just be a matter of which ideas we want to go forward with and/or playtest" is perfect. When we get a few more submissions we can vote on if we want to prioritize for a wave, or let nature take it's course and just see which ones finish up first, and adapt the wave to those.
