2 smaller expansions each year. I think UD said about 100 cards. Then the big release at Gen Con.

Perfect, we have enough time to know the cards and learn the synergies

Expansions will be about 200, half the size as the main set.

200 cards each booster?
If they launch 2 in a year it will be great

I would guess 4 copies of each card in the expansion? so 50 new cards x4 copies? that's a pretty ok expansion schedule.

The expansion plan is to:

1)Have as many boxes as they can crank out every year to make a massive profit,

2)3-4 new keywords per expansion to confuse the hell out of new players,

3)Ban 2-3 cards per set,

4)Crank out Vs for other non-superhero licenses that make no sense whatsoever so that you can have Hello Kitty, vs Wolverine vs Firefly characters vs Michael Jordan vs Aliens

5)Discontinue the game abruptly like they did with Vs System original, Warcraft TCG, and Marvel Superheroes

There you have it! A plan for success.

They have been handling Legendary really well and the Brand Manager: Brenner has been very vocal over on that board. It would be nice to see him visit over here everyone once in a while, but they know that VS player's got burned in the past and they have gained a reputation and now they are trying to mend that and make a better product.

So, I have high hopes for extra expansions, new content.

My biggest concern is when the Aliens/Predator/Firefly stuff starts coming out. I'd prefer to stick with Marvel characters, so I hope that at the very least they continue to release Marvel expansions during/after GenCon, once they have released the other brands. I assume they will, given Legendary's model.

It was cool having weird fringe factions sometimes in the original VS, although it can kind of make things funky if future expansions have power creep and obsolete the original, more prominently featured characters.

Also, R.I.P. Fantastic Four . I think two of my favorite decks back in the day were FF and Doom

We really need to get UD's attention on this topic. I think it would be a big mistake to miss a Marvel release.

I stopped playing Legendary because it was way too complicated. My 15+man play group doesn't even touch it anymore. There's 20+ keywords; UDE really overextended themselves on this one.

I think it'd be a big mistake to not get a shared DC Comics license, atleast for VS. System. Since Legendary is a Deck Builder, and Cryptozoic has the DC license for Deck Building games atleast... unless they do their own LCG, with all their licenses

I can't wait for the Aliens/Predator releases. It's the only reason I'm even interested in the game. I'd really like to know when Season 2 starts.

I agree with this. There is no official movement from UD to this? As Player I am really interest to play the marvel game, probably others likes the Alien thematic, and it is ok! but personally I also find that play spiderman togheter with another characteres like alien or firefly lose the sense and the spirit of the game, and defintly loss the thematic of the game... it could work as separatly games but all as one.. I am fear about it. So if someone knows something from UD officially please link the info! ;-)

Which is August. So that works out right with that release schedule of every 4 months. Nice. Shame I've got to wait so long.
