Hello, hello! I'm new to the game but kinda like it a lot.

There's a tiny nitpick that I have though.

The attack illustrations on the cards don't really evoke the feeling of what is supposed to be happening to me.

Strike, Dash and Grasp are fine but Burst, for example, looks just like a punch delivered while stationary. Shouldn't it more likely show someone dodging backwards and avoiding a strike?

I looked at the earlier illustrations with the more stick-figure-like pictures and to me those brought out what is happening better than the new illustrations... (Which *are* more detailed, I'll grant them that.) The new ones just don't seem to bring out the opposition of the different attacks like the ones did before. With which I mean that Burst beats Strike, Strike beats Drive, Drive beats Burst and so on.

Maybe I'm alone in this but it did irk me immediately. I picture the moves in my head while playing and the illustrations don't really match my thoughts... yuk

I agree about burst, but what can you do? The stick figure illustration of burst seemed to convey the action better.

I actually like the originals better as well, but the new ones are ok.
