What do i miss out on by buying an OS2 base game from MM instead of waiting for OS3?

Some upgraded components (player boards and score tracks will be die cut thick cardboard now) and presumably a rulebook that has the OS3 content in it.

The upgraded components are available as add-ons btw if you are thinking of late backing so you can still get them even if you get OS2. My recommendation is to get it now as there is really no reason to wait.

I have a first edition, with upgrades from OS2 and will get more upgrades in OS3. It's all good. Get it now.

I agree it is a huge advantage to get the right now. But if money is an issue you will have the best deal if you take the acolyte pledge level and add on as many faction expansions as you can. Lets say you are about to to spend 350 (200 for the core + 150 for wamp) to get the Base game; Ancients; shaggai; Masks; Beyond TS.

For the same 350 (200 for acolyte + 150 add ons) you get the Base game; 4 factions.

You will use factions a lot more than you use extra maps or neutral figures. Honestly, with my experience in the game I would like if someone has told me this before I expent my (a lot of) money.
