Looks like they made a lot of changes, hopefully all for the better.
Speculation based on cards removed and replaced and such?
New build requirements for reavers?

Brilliant, supply the expansion rules online for free download and include a Full page add for another game.

Now THAT is smart marketing.

These don't appear to be the full rules. Things are greyed out and pages are missing (13-17 for example). It is nice to get a further look at it though.

Yeah, but enough is shown, that is almost insanely tempting to anyone having the game, not to pick up.

I already see several new rule changes that are going to make a Huge impact on the game play!

More minis would have been nice, but it looks like they added a lot with the cards (163) and more planets.

I completely agree; I haven't been this excited in a while.

As far as I can tell they added all the brood war units from the game so I don't know what other minis you expected. I honestly thought they might not be minis at all so I was drooling over the pictures from a couple of days ago.

I am very interested to see how this double planet works as well as the hero cards.

I guess those are the scenarios, I think they do this for most of their games, I think Doom online rules suffer from this as well, you can't see the scenarios online...

Yep, level 1 robotics facility now allows to build the corsair and you need level 2 to build reavers (as you can see on page 3 of the rules).
Already preordered by amazon, hope they get it done quick

The thing that confused me, it says that purple zerg gets 2 MORE new cards than green zerg.
What do we suppose is up with that?

I'm wondering how the medic will work. Will it just boost the health or will it prevent a unit from dying? And for the defend orders, I sorta wish they were a suprise, revealed when the enemy goes to attack you.

as far as the cards removed and replaced, I'm sure that's to be able to add the new units into the combat cards without diluting the other units as much. For instance the scourge card will be replaced to have both the scourge and the infested terrans probably.

I think they mentioned boosting firebats a bit. Maybe the marines won't have their splash card anymore (which would be fine with me).

Corey did say Firebats were getting a boost in his interview with me, as well as siege tanks.


Glad to hear this. I always tended to go straight air with Terran. Made things a bit reptitive.

I like all the 'customization' that the expansion provides.

The leadership card system is an EXCELLANT example of this. Being able to choose one (from a selection of many) for each phase of the game will allow for greater diversity. I love that.

Also taking a look at the new units that were added to the game, it seems like you are going to be able to run divergent technology trees much easier.

In the latest preview: Leaders of the War they mention that Sarah Kegrigan (hero purple Zerg) may research Psionic Storm and Cloaking for free. These are probably the two extra card of the purple Zerg player. So mystery solved.

Ah, I had read that she could research those cards, but I didn't notice the discrepency in the parts list and had been wondering where she was supposed to get those cards from. Thanks!

Is this interview a secret? Or is it somewhere on the internets?

Weasely, nice avatar I like how you x-mas-fied it! lol!

This expansion is going to be so good. The leadership cards are such an awesome concept as they are tied to the 3 different phases. such a good idea, and so well executed from what I can see!
